Beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

The house was all that it promises and more. Eleftheria (owner) was very helpful and super lovely. Beach at the end of the garden, pool at your feet, Jacuzzi, nice local restaurant within walking distance and a good town with all you need 15 minutes away! What more could you want?

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property - very clean and good quality fittings and decor. The owner (Eleftheria) couldn't do enough for us (3 couples) - even to the point of providing games we requested and delivering them the following day, and supplying a wonderful meal for us one evening which we just had to reheat when we got back from our travels. The pool and hot tub were great and the BBQ area fab. The villa was easy to find and in a great location for exploring the western side of Crete. The details given on the website were absolutely accurate. We will definitely go back!

Perfect Stay In Crete

  • 5 of 5

We have been away on many holidays with two other couples, staying in a huge variety of cottages in UK and villas abroad. We all agreed that our stay at Villa Elvina was the best of the lot. It was so good that we have already booked a week in September 2018 - not bad for someone who usually books last minute. The location of the villa is brilliant - it's a short walk to the sea (our record was 22.3 seconds) with friendly tavernas within a short walking distance. Kissamos is a nearby town (about 3km) - hardly touched by tourism with everything you need. Western Crete is a fabulous area to explore with wonderful beaches, towering mountains and fantastic walks. Returning to Villa Elvina after a day out was so nice. The pool area is incredibly comfortable (we bagged the double sun bed) and the outdoor hot tub is a real treat for those weary legs. There is so much space both indoors and out - if you want some time to yourself, there are plenty of spaces with somewhere to chill out. We barbecued one night and had a great meal on another night provided by the owner's mother. The bedrooms are spacious, with superb bedding and good bathrooms. Unlike many places, there is lots of comfortable seating downstairs and there are two smart televisions - we even watched some rugby one evening streamed from my phone. The owners, Eleftheria and her husband, are very welcoming and incredibly helpful. I sent an e-mail just before we got there, asking if they happened to have scrabble. The next day Eleftheria arrived with a bundle of games but was very apologetic that there was no scrabble as the only version she could get was using Greek letters but she was already on the case. Communication prior to arriving was outstanding and the information covered everything including very useful details about how to get there. Eleftheria met us on our arrival and showed us everything we needed. She shows a real concern for her clients and wanted to know what we thought of the villa. This winter she is already planning some changes to make the villa even better. It was a memorable stay. Our flights are already booked to Chania and we can't wait to get back.

Superb place and host

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, had everything you would need. Perfect for families. Excellent location, beach is right opposite the entrance and there is a gorgeous walk along the coast with one of the most beautiful cliffs and sea sceneries. Above all the host was one of the loveliest people we ever met. Highly recommended !!!

Fantastic stay in a beautiful home. Incredibly peaceful, relaxing and luxurious. Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

From the original booking interaction, the subsequent greeting on arrival, and the incredible service whilst we were here I cannot recommend Villa Elvina highly enough. There's only one problem with the place, after you've stayed here it will spoil you for any other villa stay. This is more a high quality boutique hotel, very well positioned for a quiet yet expansive beach. There's a couple of decent restaurants within walking distance but for a decent shop or sight seeing you will need a car

But if you're looking for high quality accommodation, utter privacy and tranquility, in a wonderful location, you'll have to look far and wide to beat Vilka Elvina. Thank you Eleftheria and Anna, for making this an incredibly relaxing and rewarding holiday. You can be justifiably proud of your home and thank you for allowing us the privilege of experiencing a Cretan holiday. Ian, Iona, Diane and Bob

A perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the most amazingly perfect week at Villa Elvina!! There were 6 of us, my husband and I, our 2 sons, and their girlfriends. The property is just as beautiful as the pictures, plenty of space for all of us. It was spotless and had everything you need or want. Eleftheria, the owner, was a wonderful hostess. She checked on us often to make sure we had everything we needed. One of our son's got engaged while we were there and Eleftheria brought a cake and a bottle of champagne to celebrate! There are tavernas a couple of minutes away and we had quite a few dinners at the one recommended by her. We will definitely return to this amazing villa!! Just perfect!
