Just arrived back from a week of absolute luxury, the accommodation is amazing with everything that a family could need. Thank you to our wonderful hosts yiannis and Eva the hospitality you showed us was way above any we have ever experienced. From meeting us at the airport to all the gorgeous food you provided. The cake was delicious as was the meal and Yiannis your BBQ skills were brilliant!! The children absolutely loved the pool and all toys and the lovely ice cream.
Looking forward to returning next year at your other villa!!

“Brilliant house, owners could not have been more helpful or friendly”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

House had all the amenities that you might need, and Eva and Jannis were brilliant hosts. They arranged a seven seat mini bus for us, and met us with it at the airport.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My husband and I plus our three boys traveled to Greece for the first time and decided to stay at Eva's Cottage. We were absolutely blown away! The property itself is gorgeous and there was more than enough space for our family of 5! The home was very clean and had all the amenities we were accustomed to. The boys absolutely loved the pool although it is a bit smaller in person! The welcome dinner was such an amazing touch and really made us feel welcome and at home! The special welcome toast was lovely as well! Our hosts, Yiannis and Eva, were simply the best and gave us tips on where to dine and what to see during our stay. We will absolutely be returning and highly recommend this property and these owners! You will not be disappointed!

“Lovely big villa with wonderful hospitality to match!”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Right from arriving in Crete Yiannis and Eva made us feel very welcome and at home. Yiannis met us at the airport (they arranged our car hire for us at a good rate) and he showed us to our villa. On arrival (mid evening) we unpacked and Eva had made us a greek dinner (very unexpected but delightful!). The villa was spacious and clean and close to the local shops and restaurants which was very convenient. Enjoyed our stay on the island and Yiannis and Eva cooked for us again on the last night - what lovely people!

“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I booked this villa based on all the previous positive reviews. From the start, the owners Eva and Yiannis were very helpful and made the booking process very straightforward. Eva met us at the airport and had organised a taxi which was waiting for our arrival. On arrival, we were delighted with the villa. Beautifully clean, spacious and well equipped. Half an hour after arrival, (Lunchtime) there was a knock at the door and Eva and her parents arrived with a delicious welcome meal for us (chicken, roast potatoes, salad, tzatziki etc) and a beautiful homemade cake. Such a lovely surprise and very welcome after an early start. The fridge was already stocked with water, cheese, ham, milk, bread, fruit, yoghurt, beer, butter, club soda, crackers, onions, tomatoes and lots more!
The villa has wonderful insect barriers on the windows and doors and this is the first holiday that I wasn't bitten by mosquitos. The pool is lovely and we spent a few lazy days lying on the sunloungers. The kitchen is very well equipped, probably the best that I've come across and we enjoyed many a meal sat in the very private garden. The villa was cleaned twice during our week stay and both bathroom and beach towels were changed on those days. Yiannis left us a treat of lovely local ice cream and cones on one occasion and also surprised us with another gorgeous cooked meal one evening. We received lots of helpful advice and emails during our stay recommending places to visit. There is a plentiful supply of raki and honey available for you. There are shops close by, we bought all our food locally. There are a few small supermarkets to choose from and a butcher/vegetable/fruit shop and delicious bakery.
Eva and Yiannis recommended Spyros' Taverna in Gouves and we had a lovely evening there. Spyros is great fun, the food was great, raki constantly flowing and he will come and collect you.
We chose not to hire a car and managed perfectly well on the local buses. Bus stop 12 is a short walk from the villa and its is very easy to get around. You don't need to book organised trips to places like Spinalonga. From Bus stop 12, you get the bus to Agios Nicolaos (approx an hour and a half) then change buses at the station to Plaka and there you can get a return ferry for €4. The Island is well worth a visit and we spent a good few hours there. The buses run back to Agios Nicolaos every 2 hours. Buses do seem to run to time. Its usual to buy tickets on the bus, the conductors all speak English and are helpful telling you where to get off. If there is a bus station, you are expected to buy tickets before boarding the bus.
I would also thoroughly recommend going on the sailing boat Eleni. You can email to book or book at the quayside at Hersonissos. We paid €25 euro which included about 4 hours on the boat, they take you to a lovely calm bay where you can swim from the boat whilst they cook you a bbq of Pork, salad and bread. Chicken or vegatarian options are available. You also get 2 cups of wine and watermelon. Water is free, soft drinks €1. They will also collect you and drop you back, all included in the price. we asked to be collected from bus stop 12 and he arrived exactly on time and could seat 8 in the car. The trip was very enjoyable and after our swim we sailed along the coast for 40 mins before returning to Hersonissos.
We found the locals very friendly and on our last evening, as we were passing one of the neighbours houses, we were invited in, we hadn't met them before and were made to feel so welcome, first being given raki and then all sorts of lovely food, mostly grown from their garden. We were really touched by their hospitality and kindness.
A week went far too quickly, we wished we had longer. Eva's father helped us back to the airport along with another pre booked taxi. I would thoroughly recommend this villa and would love to come back again!
Many thanks to Eva, Yiannis, Eva's parents and all the lovely people that made this such a brilliant holiday.

“Amazing trip to Evas Cottage”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

I have to say this was one of the best villas/cottages that me and my family have stayed in for a long time.

When I was searching for a place to stay in Crete, I looked for numerous villas, but when came across Evas Cottage it was available at an amazing price and the look of it blew my mind. I was considering contacting Eva for more information, however it was only available on the specific dates were there so I took a gamble and booked it. And what a gamble it was.

The booking process went smoothly and was contacted almost immediately by Eva and Yiannis giving us loads of information and even offered to help with booking a rental car for us which we took up.

On arrival to Crete, Yiannis met us at the airport and helped us with our luggage and rental car and took us to the Villa, welcoming us just his family which was above and beyond many people would do, which we loved dearly.

The villa was just as it was described in the advert and looked exactly the same, kept in pristine condition.

Yiannis and his family were always on hand if we needed anything or wanted to ask any questions and as previous reviewers had stated, they even offered to cook dinner for us. We accepted, however unfortunately due to a member of our family falling ill we had to postpone. But they still went out of their way t cook some lovely chicken and chicken soup for us which was very lovely.

I would definitely recommend Evas Cottage and will definitely be returning at some point over the next couple of years :-)
