A lovely place we hope to return!
Our stay was absolutely lovely. The family were such gracious hosts from the welcome to our last day. They treated us like family in the best way—popping in with a special sweet or taking us to town to avoid an extra bus ride. The apartment was wonderful—beautifully decorated with the amenities of home. The town (Gouves) has all you would need and some wonderful restaurants. We can’t say enough about all the great food! The beach is visible from the porch which was so easy. For non beach days, getting into town was about 20 minutes and in town, the buses were easy. Heraklion had shopping, restaurants, and nice people. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property and what feels like our friends to everyone!
Beautiful 2 bedroom condo very close to the beach. The owners are very friendly and had baked a cake for our arrival and gave us fruit, rakhi and metaxa to enjoy during our stay. The local restaurant that the owners recommended - Ambrosia Tavern - was one of the best meals we had in Greece. Only negative was that they did not provide soap for the shower which does make bathing difficult.
You feel like family
My family and I just returned from our Greece trip. We are 3 adults and 2 children, ages 7 & 9. Crete was our second half of our trip. We wanted to stay somewhere centrally where we could travel from there. We ended up staying at Villa Eva. I LOVE this property! But first, let me describe our arrival to the property. It looks to be owned by a family (husband, wife, adult daughter.) We met the father and daughter at the aquarium closeby since it's difficult to find the property by just using the address. Once we arrived to the property we were greeted by the mother. The property is located close to the sea in an area that is not the most updated or modern. BUT, that didn't diminish our experience whatsoever. The property was beautiful. The mom had furnished and decorated it and it was lovely. The family were so excited to give us the grand tour. It really felt like we were family coming to visit. They even made food for us knowing that we had kids. There was a huge platter of ham and cheese sandwiches, an egg/ham "quiche", cake roll, two bottles of wine, limencello, and mom's homemade raki.
The property is beautiful. The pictures are very accurate. The two bedrooms & common area are spacious. They had a cute balcony with a table where we had most of our dinners. There is even a yard next to the building meant for our use that had a dining table, several lounge chairs, and the cutest decorations! The kitchen area had plenty of items to help us with our dinners. The property is located very close to Heraklion (Iraklion) and the drive to Elounda was about an hour away. The neighborhood is very quiet. The parents live downstairs but only bothered us when they would bring up desserts that mom made for us. They were even kind enough to let us borrow their phone a couple of times. We were well taken care of! Our goodbye gift was the icing on the cake. This property was a wonderful place to stay. We would highly recommend it for anyone!
We had a great holiday. The Villa was extremely clean and cozy. The hosts were amazing.
We stayed at Villa Eva for 3 days during Easter holiday and we were given a warm welcome by both George and his wife. We arrived quite late and they both greeted us with lots of goodies. The villa is clean and comfortable. Renting a car would be useful if trying to visit the main attractions in Heraklion. George was very helpful in getting us connected with a car rental company upon our arrival. Anastasia, his daughter, was very responsive to our requests and questions. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.
Fantastic Crete property
We stayed three wonderful nights in April. The property is better than pictured and the owners are the best hosts ever! We were greeted with wine, cake and sandwiches and a complete orientation to the beautiful property. Comfortable bed; every kitchen amenity you can think of. The balconies and courtyard are wonderful places to relax after touring beautiful Crete all day. You can walk to the fabulous Tavern Ambrosia which is 0.7 mi away on the sea coast. There are NO negatives to this property. If we come back to Crete, we would not consider any other property except this one! Loved it!!
