Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Eva & Yiannis,

We had a wonderful time in Gouves, and Eva's cottage was the perfect location for our stay.

Your hospitality was greatly appreciated and we look forward to returning to Crete at some point in the future.

Many thanks for all that you prepared and provided, we had a marvelous experience and a holiday that we will never forget.

Best wishes,

Clayton, Louise, Callum & Miranda.

We went with our children and grandchildren.The house is super, and as well as being very spacious, downstairs in the gym area, there are lots of toys and games were the kids can run around and have lots of fun. Eva and Yiannis could not have been more welcoming, they provided lunch on the first day, and as Yiannis was trying his wood oven for the first time, another wonderful meal was provided. All in all a great holiday, and as the pool is now heated, the two grandchildren were in it most of the time.

Beautiful villa, fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the airport by Yiannis and Eva. They organised the taxi for us and we followed them to the villa. Yiannis showed us round the property and poured us a drink and then Eva brought round a home cooked (and very welcome after a long journey) meal. The groceries provided were very welcome too as it gave us time to sus out the local shops. During our stay there were a couple of emails to make sure we knew all we needed to about the area and to inform us of when the cleaning day/time was. When Yiannis came round on cleaning day he noticed that we had finished the wonderful cake and organised another to be baked and brought round by Eva's mother. Fresh towels were provided. I loved swimming in the pool every day even though some would consider it a little on the cold side at the end of October. We chose not to hire a car although on reflection I think I probably would in the same situation again. We wanted a chilled out week of doing not very much so we didnt really go anywhere. We did go on the little train ride which was An interesting morning. I'm not sure i would be too keen on it in the middle of summer! At the end of the trip Yiannis organised the taxi back to the airport for us and came round for a last drink. Thank you for the gifts, they were a lovely surprise.

Spacious and well designed

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and well organised and also very well equipped. The garden and pool was very nice and you could feel private there. The hosts were very keen to see to it that we had a good stay, which we did.

Fantastic spacious modern property and amazing hosts. Great location and easy to get to places

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious house. We were 9 people, with 5 kids. They kids did not want to leave the house, that's how much they loved the house. The house was close to Gouves Beach and plenty or restaurants and eating joints and supermarkets. Easy access to highways for road trips. The house has 4 bedrooms, lots of space to hang out inside and for kids to run around outside.

The hosts were amazing and went above and beyond. Yianni came to pick us up at the port and Eva brought us warm home cooked food the night we checked in, that was enough to last us for 2 days. They also left us a well stocked fridge so we didn't have to run to the grocery store. They took care of every detail. Yianni helped us plan our itinerary for our stay on the island and had great recommendations.

We would definitely go back to the house for our next stay on the island. Thank you Yianni and Eva for a memorable stay.

Amazing !!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What hosts and what a beautiful house. We arrived at 3.00 am in the morning with two toddlers in the group and boy we were worried! Yiannis was there to greet us at the airport and the hospitality that Yiannis, Eva and Eva's parents showed us from that point on was just first class. We were treated to a home cooked meal, homemade cake, homemade Raki and the fridge was stocked with essentials that we needed for the day.

There was nothing that was not taken care of at the house. Child friendly, amazing rooms, pool and garden. A cleaner came in every other day.

Crete is a beautiful island with lovely beaches and beautiful scenery up in the Plateu.

All 8 of us had the best holiday !!

Thank you guys and please pass our thanks to Eva's parents too.

Beautiful Eva's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Yannis and Eva for letting us stay in your beautiful home for the last week. We were met at the airport by Yannis who had also arranged our car hire and then went with us to the cottage (which is only a short drive from the airport) to show us how everything worked. We were also delighted to find that Eva had cooked us a welcoming dinner which was delicious! The house was just like the pictures show it to be. There was also a well stocked pantry as well as fresh bread, milk, fruit and salad..There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby and the beach is within walking distance. The cottage was cleaned twice during our stay with bedding, bath towels and beach towels being changed on both occasions. Yannis was on hand to tell us where the best places to visit and to eat were . We would highly recommend this cottage and would love to come back again soon!
