“Wonderful Villa in a peaceful environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

The Villa Elma&Andreas is located in a peaceful surrounding, but still close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores (Lidl and INKA).
This was an ideal accomodation for our family with two children, aged 4 and 6. Own private swimming pools, dishwasher, washing machine, wi-Fi
connection, good cleaning service and a well equipped kitchen.
We really were able to relax in this Villa, which was one of our main hopes for the holiday.
I would really reccomend this Villa to everone who seek a holiday in a peaceful environment with some own privacy.
The owner, Andreas, was wery kind and helpful.

What a great find! We travelled on first Ryanair flight from Dublin to Chania on 1st April and were so happy with our accommodation, a couple of miles outside the so pretty old town and port of Chania. Cost of taxi from airport 28 euro but on our return got airport bus from Chania bus station for 3 euro each. Family run hotel with such a personal service and right beside a fine beach. Our apartment was just fantastic, booked for two, but slept four, so we had loads of space. It was clean and so well decorated and we had a lovely sunny patio with sun loungers so had no need to use the pool for sunbathing! Very comfy mattresses and good wifi too in apartment. it was so early in the season that local shops and restaurants were not yet open, bit of a nuisance, but we walked to a Lidl and bought in enough for our breakfast and lunch for our 4 day holiday. In the evenings we took local bus into Chania where we ate in lovely restaurants all around the harbour. Last bus back to Elma's, so early in the season, left at 10.20pm which was fine for us. There are probably later buses in high season. We got a taxi once or twice, cost 7 euro so not a problem anyway. We really loved everything about our accommodation and owner, Andreas was on hand all the time it seemed to look after his guests, even for a nightcap at the bar! He cooks breakfast too! Book it, you won't be disappointed! Hope to revisit later this year!

Elmas dream was just that....a dream....a little hotel with a lot of heart. As the owner, Andreas, himself said its a 2 star hotel with 5 star service. The staff at Elmas was always willing to go the extra mile for us. Even picking us up when we got lost one day. As 2 women (sisters) traveling together we really appreciated the feeling of security they provided. The rooms are beautifully decorated by Andreas' Danish wife in a gorgeous Scandinavian style right down to the thick convertors on the most comfortable bed I've ever found in Greece! Trust me the only 2-star aspect of this hotel is the price and that's the way I like it 5 star service at a 2 star price.

the place is really nice. Very close to the beach, which is by far the best one around. it is very close to the bus stop to Chania.
You can also walk to it by the beach. It's a nice walk.
The apartment we were in was spacious and clean.
cleaning done everyday with the towels for the bathroom changed evrey 2 days.
the beds are really comfortable and the kitchen is fully fitted.

Andreas is amazing. very friendly and always smiling.
He helped me for every question I asked.
I absolutely loved the time I had there and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Thanks you Andreas and a special thought to the 3 dogs! I really miss them!

We extended our stay with Andreas his wife, kids and two dogs as we felt very welcome like being part of family.
The rooms (room9) we had were so spacious! Mini kitchenette, dining, lounge, two balconies, walk to beaches, and away from main town although still close to hop on bus 10mins or just walk the beach 30mins. So comfortable to stay there. Beds were really comfy, wifi was a bit iffy could only get on balcony or down at bar. Bath tub was a bit dirty but people don't actually have a bath they stand and bathe however still needed to be cleaned a bit more. As I mentioned before 4 kids live here so toys can be seen scattered on grass which did not bother us and they were all very well behaved. Service was brilliant and love to have a cocktail or snack at bar, nothing they won't do to help. Perfect location for a peaceful holiday thanks for having us
