  • An excellent "refuge" in a beautiful village. Inside the trees and very close to the sea, the scenery, the house and the hospitality are all amazing!

  • Great place that I highly recommend :) ! Lost in a small village in the mountain, but close to market and places like restaurants and shops. And the beautiful beaches are only 15 min from the apartment :) the style is really nice and really comfy !

    Marie2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts and the apartment were both very very nice. What a beautiful place in the mountains, you need a car, but having that peaceful nature is totally worth it. The best dog in the world is included and good food and beautiful views are all around. A short ride to the amazing beach of Elafonissi - we will come back for sure.

  • Beautiful place, great welcoming andd nice breakfast. 100 % positive !

    Guillaume2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful apartment with everything we needed for a nights stay. Wonderful location and Mary and Bisoux the dog were amazing hosts!!

  • Hi, we had a lovely time at the cottage. It is very cosy and has been renovated to a high standard. The garden is very well maintained and is a comfortable place to sit and relax. Mary was the perfect host, giving us helpful information of where to go and insider tips to enjoy the area while avoiding the tourist crowds. The pin on Airbnb is very wrong. The cottages are grouped up the mountain, 15 minutes drive from the Elafonisi beach and area. I imagine that in summer the cooler temperatures in the hills would be a blessing. The cottage had a washing machine, which we wouldn't normally need but we were travelling light and after two weeks it was great to be able to wash and dry our clothes. I would definitely stay here again. The only negative point was that our hire car bottomed out on the ramp to the parking area every time we drove in or out. There are mosquitos in the garden but all the windows have mosquito screens.

    Carissa2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and newly renovated apartments in traditional houses, nice cool, comfortable bed, Netflix

    Anika2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was nice, spacious and with a lovely garden. It was off the normal tourist route hidden in a small village. Ellafonisi was close, there were some great restaurants nearby and we also visited Chania and Palaiochora which we both loved. Next to Ellafonisi was another beach which was even more beautiful. The small puppy Bisou was always really delighted to see us. The place is definitely worth the money.

    This is a traditional Cretan family owned house. The name comes from our grandma Olympia by whom it was originally owned. The unique atmosphere and vibes is something very special about this place. It really has the power to take you back in time. This is a place for dreamers to reset, reflect and create. We have tried to keep this house as traditional as possible without though this meaning that it will take away from your comfort and relaxation during your holidays.
    The house is located in a scenic little village “Vathi”. It is approximately one hour from the main big city “Chania town” and 10 minutes from paradise “Elafonisi”. There is a convenience store near by where you can purchase anything you need. The house has 2 bedrooms, a main area/living room and also a kitchen and a bathroom that are separate from the rest of the house. There is a big garden with a wonderful view perfect to spend romantic nights under the sky filled with stars.
  • Peacefully located in the countryside, but 15 minutes to Elafonissi beach, this charming old world property is recommended. Not everyone will like that the bathroom and kitchen are across the terrace from the main house, but we loved staying here. Hosts were communicative, friendly and efficient, and check in was easy. If in Crete, would stay here again. As a bonus you also get a super-sweet cat family in residence, so a hit with kids!

  • a very nice clean house with a great view .... perfect to relax and relax .... we felt very comfortable and would come back anytime .....

    Anastasia2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a peaceful oasis in a small mountain village. There is a large open terrace surrounded by cacti and succulents where you can have morning coffee or cook in the kitchen and eat under the shelter of the vine. We loved the adorable cat family who lived nearby and frolicked around us each morning. Watching birds swooping and diving over the garden in the day, sunrise over the valley and stargazing at night made our stay very memorable. Also the local tips for beaches which we followed took us off the beaten track to some incredible swimming spots which were quieter than the headline beaches - all within 20 minutes drive. A special place.

    Laura2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was wonderful from the check in to the recommendations and clear instructions. We couldn't have had a nicer stay! The views are beautiful and the surrounding of different fruit trees and flowers so lovely. Epharisto!!

    Barb2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • this is a unique place, quite traditional in a way. So nothing fancy. Just how poeple used to live in crete. It's safe, quite and about 15min to the sea side.

    Johanna2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent only 2 nights in the House but it was absolutely wonderful. It was a very unique experience in this old but beautiful house. The tips were also really helpful. We would definately come again if we want to stay near Elafonissi.

    Alexander2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet and amazingly located house surrounded by the hills. It's very nice to head back to the hills after spending a day at the beach actually ! Ερωφιλη has been welcoming and gave very good local tips.

    Cyrille2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A welcome with some nice touches. Otherwise it is the absolute calm in a very green and exotic setting, a deliciously outdated decor with modern comfort. A very convenient grocery store two minutes walk, taverns and beautiful beaches close by car.

    Το σπίτι αυτό υπολογίζεται ότι είναι άνω των 120 ετών. Αυτό που το κάνει ιδιαίτερο για εμάς είναι ότι βρίσκετε στο ψηλότερο σημείο του χωριού με καταπληκτική θέα!
    There is a mini market just 2 minutes from the house.
  • Very nice apartment perched at the top of a winding road. Very nice view of the surrounding mountains. Quiet accommodation, but if there is wind, the room upstairs can get a little noisy. Accommodation rather advisable to young couples, since to access the room upstairs must take a steep wooden stairs. You can also access this room through the outside and avoid the stairs (the ground is sloping and the room upstairs is at the foot of the house) but for who gets up at night to go to the bathroom for example, it can be a test. Contact is made at the restaurant or Karina works. The restaurant is about 5 minutes drive from the accommodation. Karina gave us the refreshment of our choice when we arrived. After, her husband opened the road to take us home. The road that leads to it is narrow and very steep. Nothing insurmountable, just a little impressive the first time. The accommodation has all the amenities, including a washing machine and a laundry line outside. Very convenient. An excellent stay.

    Gael2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely house , a carefully considered renovation , clean and stylish with a warm host . Super location , We were a family of four so kids had a sofa bed in main room which is cosy for a couple of nights but better suited to couples .

    Clare2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect, we had an amazing time there, better than I expected. Katerina was really nice with us.

    Jean-Anaël2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Constantine's house is a great property set in a stunning location. Climbing a ladder to the bedroom was novel to say the least (although you can access the bedroom from the outside path.) Be prepared for a very narrow,winding drive up to the house.

    Paul2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation and perfect location! Thank you very much for your welcome. We will come back, it's on !!

    Mathieu2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start ? The hospitality of Katerina and her family is second to none. The place is wonderful, unique. The accommodation is charming, atypical. It is with great sadness that we left this place and this family of incredible kindness. Their restaurant Taverna Stomio is a must. Do not hesitate to go buy your local products in the family shop located next door, the products are to fall. We hope to come back very soon! Thank you for everything !

    Joy2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful holiday in the area. Grateful for the local tips. We enjoyed each place. wonderful family, community and surroundings.

    Rebekah And Terry2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Katerinas and her family are wonderful hosts! If you are looking for a serene and peaceful stay, this is your place! It has wonderful Mountain View’s and the home is absolutely beautiful. The only note is that the driveway is very narrow and it’s not easy to get up and down, not ideal for timid drivers. Otherwise, the family’s tavern and local market are the perfect distance from the perfect little mountain getaway. Only 10 minutes from Elofonissi, get there early to grab a seat! must eat at family tavern Stomio for delicious food and Raki!

We believe when you travel it is a far amazing experience and this Family owned complex will give you more than you expect! Just a breath away from the most famous beach in the World, Elafonisi beach
    If you are planning visiting an exotic place we have already planed one for you...Ellafos Traditional Living is located to the world famous Ellafonisi Beach. Pinkish sand, shallow water and the view of a georgeous island, that you can go on foot, are some of the unique characteristics of this amazing place!

    Ellafos Traditional Living is in the village of Perivolia.The village has a Kafenio(Traditional Cretan cafe) that you can taste local products. 9 klm from the Village is Elafonisi a small islet in the southwest of Crete. Linked to the mainland by a shallow reef, vathousto much a measure that allows the passage easily, especially when the sea is calm. The place is beautiful and perfect for enjoying nature.There you can find also many restaurants.
  • A great little mountain hideaway, the apartments done to high specification and stylish. We arrived late in the evening and were away second thing in the morning so unfortunately didn't get to enjoy the beautiful setting as much as we would have liked to. Communication and friendliness second to none. The approach to the apartments is unfinished rocky path and a bit steep, so worth bearing in mind though this will be done up soon. Also if you are very sensitive to noise (we are not), this may not suit you as the apartments are partitioned within one stone building, and especially as the village is also very quiet so noises are amplified. Its a lovely and unique AirBnb and would be great if we came in a bigger group to take all 4 apartments, especially once the pool is done :) Thanks for the hospitality!

    Jacqueline2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was great! We loved the location as it was away from crowds, very quiet, easy to find, and a quick drive to Elafonisi Lagoon. The place was clean, spacious, and had a washing machine - which was a great thing to have halfway through our trip! Maria greeted us and was very kind and helpful and gave some great local tips. She also provided a great breakfast for three of us for a small fee which was very nice to have and not have to worry about buying groceries or finding a place to eat nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

    Samantha2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very cozy and clean. A small house nestled in the hill where you can spend pleasant evenings. To reach beaches or small supermarkets, the car is still essential.

    Marta2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect, we had a really great time there, Mary and Konstantinos was really nice with us.

    Jean-Anaël2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Good location. Mary was so nice and helpful. Would go back

    Isabelle2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the mountain view, the quiet, the facilities, everything was very clean. Breakfast, not included in the price, is plentiful. Mary is very welcoming and gave us the address of a family tavern just steps away for dinner where we ate very well! Go there with your eyes closed for a change of scenery for one or more nights! ;-)

    Irida Country House is located at the groundfloor of the amazing villa Evenos at Elafonisi. It is a 2 bedroom apartment and is 3.4km away from the world know Elafonisi beach. It is by far one of the most suitable apartments for 5 people to stay in elafonisi.
  • A lovely place but sshhh, keep it quiet. And you should be able to book it as well 😁

    Rémi2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it, it was perfect for our stay. Space, amenities, quiet, remote but still close to Elafonisi beach and tavernas. If we ever get back we'll definitely try to stay there again.

    Ana2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location. Only a few kilometers from the beach and a couple kilometers into town for dinner. Place was great. Regret that we only had one night. Can’t recommend it enough!

    Scott2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our host was very welcoming. The cottage is not easy to find because Google Maps doesn't find the correct address- use the GPS number!! The localisation is perfect, we are in 10 minutes in Elafonissi and 2 others perfect places. We can go in foot in a good restaurant! The cottage was charming.

    Célia2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is a great person, the accommodation is perfect and we had the chance to had a really warm welcome. I would definitely recommend it!

    Thomas2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, Mapia welcomed us most warmly and we really enjoyed the use of the swimming pool.

    Gwen2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • House located very near the fabulous Elafonisi beach, 10 minutes by car, in the countryside. Very nice terrace overlooking the monastery. Excellent communication with Maria who is very responsive.

    Marc2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's place was perfect. Some people mentioned due it being slightly subterranean that they got the feeling of being enclosed, we didn't get this feeling as it was really quite bright inside. The rooms, beds, kitchen etc were great and well equipped. The local area and beaches especially Elafonissi which is only 10 mins by car is beautiful. Also nearby are the best restaurants on the island.

  • The house is very nice, functional with everything needed for the pool and the beach. The place is charming, perfectly preserved with sea views in the distance with great sunset over the sea. Two creeks White Lake and Volumni are accessible by a path a few minutes walk. ELAFONISSI beach, one of the most beautiful beaches of the island is 5 minutes by car. A good holiday for rest and relaxation in a wild landscape.

    Da Silva2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is wonderful...perfect location close to some excellent beaches including Elafonissi, Kedrodasos, Aspri Limni and Voulolimni. The house has a great swimming pool and all the amenities needed. There are some nice taverns close by from which to enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the Chrisoskalitissa Monastery. Best part of the whole stay is the warm hospitality from Christos and his parents. So attentive, kind and welcoming...we felt like members of the family! We absolutely loved our time here. Thank you so much for everything.

    Come to elafonisi to the best beach in Greece at one of the top from all over in the world. The apartment is only 400 metres from the beach by foot . Also, near by there is the beutifull beach of kedrodasos . The area is characterized as a very natural beauty, so tourism is alternative and there are no big hotels. At nights you can enjoy magic moments . Also there are many paths to walk and feal the nature at its best.
    Η ιστορία του Ελαφονησιού χάνεται στα βάθη των αιώνων, από τότε που σ' αυτό το νησάκι, τις Μουσαγόρες νήσους των αρχαίων, υπήρχε ένα ιερό αφιερωμένο στον Μουσαγέτη Απόλλωνα. Μουσαγέτης σημαίνει ηγέτης των μουσών, προσωνύμιο που έδωσε ο Πίνδαρος στον Απόλλωνα. Αναφέρεται στις Μούσες του Ελικώνα οι οποίες τραγουδούσαν γύρω από την πηγή Ιπποκρήνη υπό την διεύθυνση του Θεού. Οι Μούσες λοιπόν που ήταν εννιά, εξευμένιζαν με την μουσική τους τις θαλάσσιες θεότητες, επειδή στην περιοχή επικρατούν δυνατοί άνεμοι και ξεσπούν οι μεγαλύτερες θαλασσοταραχές της Μεσογείου, σηκώνοντας τεράστια κύματα. Απέναντι στο Ιναχώριο υπήρχε ιερό της Ινούς, όπου γινόταν τελετές για να εξευμενίζουν τις θάλασσες.
  • Very clean room with a nice style. Also very close to the beach and facilities of Elafonissi.

    Thibaut2019-05-09T00:00:00Z

  • Clean and comfortable apartment located in the countryside, two minutes drive from the small town of Moni Krisokalitissis (where there are restaurants and a small supermarket) and 6 km from the wonderful beaches of Elafonissi (crowded in August, but it is possible to find corners quiet).

    Andrea2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located 10 mins from the beach on foot. It is very cozy and has everything you need. The best part was the hospitality by the owners, it was really exceptional. Definitely recommended!!!

  • The home is unique and comfortable, a great place to stay in Crete. We visited the amazing beaches around and were able to beat all the crowds! This family also owns a tavern with great food. I’m vegan, the rest of my family is vegetarian, and we were stuffed every time!

  • We had a great stay and will definitely consider visiting another time. It was a very nice and clean house with a fine area outside + only a short drive from the wonderful elefonissi beach.

  • Very lonely. Great house and good location for various bathing possibilities.

    Markus2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We where happy to chose this house. I loved the place without people with private garden. Great for children. Great for relax and so quite place for sleeping. Our 4 years old son loved toys which were there. It is short distance to Elafonisi by car. The beach was totally crowded so we enjoyed to return to the house when there was nobody else. I hope to return one day to this house!

  • We had an amazing 3 days at Batilas House! Such a nice house with a beautiful garden in a lovely typical quiet small village... just 10 minutes from the beautiful beach of Elafonissi! Thanks for everything !

  • If you want to visit Elafonisi, then this location is great. About a 10-minute drive to Elafonisi. The living area is not air-conditioned, but the two bedrooms are and it was easy enough to open the doors to cool the whole house. I really enjoyed using the outdoor shower. It was helpful having two showers for our family of four. There were a few dining options just around the corner from the house, but be aware that the nearest gas/fuel station is about a 25-30 minute drive to Elos Village. Overall, my family was very happy with the home, and most especially its near location to Elafonisi.

    Jung2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a few days in the very nice house of Ioannis. Very quiet, this charming house is ideally located near the most beautiful beaches of Crete: the famous Elafonisi and the jewel Kedrodasos. The house is perfectly equipped and very comfortable. The garden is delicious and the little more the view of the Monastery. Ioannis and his family were very welcoming, full of sweet attentions: local products and tips to visit the area. We highly recommend this rental!

    Sara2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the house allows you to quickly reach Elafonissi (very touristy in August) and the beautiful beach of Kedrodasos (one of our favorite Crete). The white lake is also accessible on foot, which is very significant. The house is perfectly equipped and we felt like home. The welcome by Maya was pleasant and the communication with Ioannis easy and cordial. It was a very pleasant stay.

    Caroline2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very welcoming and attention to detail, including games, books and sports equipment. It has an excellent position with respect to the places to visit without being surrounded by Elafonissi tourism. Some internet connection speed problem. TV available only as a wireless connection point.

At nights you can enjoy magic moments . Also there are many paths to walk and feal the nature at its best.
    Η ιστορία του Ελαφονησιού χάνεται στα βάθη των αιώνων, από τότε που σ' αυτό το νησάκι, τις Μουσαγόρες νήσους των αρχαίων, υπήρχε ένα ιερό αφιερωμένο στον Μουσαγέτη Απόλλωνα. Μουσαγέτης σημαίνει ηγέτης των μουσών, προσωνύμιο που έδωσε ο Πίνδαρος στον Απόλλωνα. Αναφέρεται στις Μούσες του Ελικώνα οι οποίες τραγουδούσαν γύρω από την πηγή Ιπποκρήνη υπό την διεύθυνση του Θεού. Οι Μούσες λοιπόν που ήταν εννιά, εξευμένιζαν με την μουσική τους τις θαλάσσιες θεότητες, επειδή στην περιοχή επικρατούν δυνατοί άνεμοι και ξεσπούν οι μεγαλύτερες θαλασσοταραχές της Μεσογείου, σηκώνοντας τεράστια κύματα. Απέναντι στο Ιναχώριο υπήρχε ιερό της Ινούς, όπου γινόταν τελετές για να εξευμενίζουν τις θάλασσες.

  • We had an amazing time at the apartment. The hosts were lovely and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The location is perfect, with many amazing beaches a few minutes drive away (and Voulolimni a 10 minute walk away). There are also two mini-markets and 4 tavernas a short walk away. All in all, we had a fantastic time and would happily recommend it.

    Neha2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you. We truly feel at home. We were very well received by Antonio & Kalliopi who gave us some recommendations of places to visit. They are very nice people and extremely friendly. The house is perfect for a couple, very clean and cozy. It also offers home made local goodies such as white wine, olive oil and fruits. The famous Elafonisi beach is a mere 7-minute drive away. The village has 2 mini markets, ATM and restaurants. We recommend it 100% and hope to return.

    Soraia2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The accomodation was perfect for a couple, clean, well supplied with amenities and well situated in a small village with two minimarts, an ATM and several tavernas. The area is very beautiful and undeveloped. The very popular Elafonissi Beach is a mere 10 minutes drive and Kedrodases Beach not much further but the joy of the area is discovering beautiful beaches that are minutes away and practically empty. Vagos' parents Antonis & Kalliopi will give you directions to both beaches and recommended tavernas. We thank both of them for their hospitality and delightful conversation. We were made to feel very welcome and recommend Vagos' accomodation unreservedly.

    Steve2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you !! A beautiful place, in the heart and in a perfect apartment with lovely people! We had a wonderful week in this great apartment. We exchanged a lot with the hosts who are lovely, the shared drink will be a great memory for us! Look forward to seeing you in France on your next trips. Thanks again ! :)

    Gwénaeël2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kaliopi and Antonis have offered us the best welcome we can dream, thank you for all these attentions. The apartment is charming, very functional and the beautiful place near the most beautiful beaches. I recommend without hesitation The parigots

    Sarah2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to enjoy one of the most beautiful regions in Crete, with very easy access to gorgeous Elafonisi and Kedrodasos beaches. The location is very peaceful, ideal to unwind and relax for a few days. Local tavernas are very good and nearby mini-markets are convenient. The studio where we stayed is spacious and well equipped, with access to a terrace to eat outdoors. Vagos’ parents made the difference by welcoming and hosting us with genuine hospitality, treating us like family. We had a great experience and look forward to coming back soon ;)

    Jose Maria2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • My sister and me had a great stay at the apartment of Vagos! The welcome by his parents was more than friendly and we even received a homemade cake and jelly as well as fruits, wine, etc ... The apartment is very clean and well equipped. Everything you need to cook a meal or have breakfast is there. The location is perfect to go to so many beaches in this area. We could park our car on the estate, so we had a great time without any trouble. We would definitely recommend it and come back some day for another stay. Thanks so much! Lisa and Carina

  • We came to Antoine & Kaliopi to discover Elafonissi and its beautiful beaches and we will come back for them next time!

    Elafonissi Elafonissi is one of the most popular tourist destinations for it has one of most beautiful beaches in Greece. It is located in the Chania prefecture at the southwestern seaside of Crete. The Elafonissi island is a 3 square kilometer area. Along with the surrounding area, it has been named a NATURA protected landscape by the associated organization of the European Union. It is famous for its lovely beach and shallow waters. A characteristic feature of the island is that, whenever the weather is mild and the sea is calm, one can walk to Elafonissi island along an inwater path that is protected by a shallow channel. The history of Elafonissi The history of Elafonissi runs deep into the centuries. Temples dedicated to Apollo and Ino were built here where ancient rituals were performed to calm the sea gods. It should be noted that the area of Elafonissi is very dangerous for passing ships. In 1922, after several shipwrecks, a navigational lighthouse was built which was visible up to 40 miles away. The lighthouse was destroyed by the Germans in World War II and has been replaced by a smaller, more modern lighthouse. Elafonissi is also known for the massacre that happened here during the Ottoman occupation. Dozens of women and children were killed along with forty armed Cretans defending the island against the Turks.

  • We had a very good stay in this spacious and clean house. The pool is large and very beautiful, the maintenance of common blameless. The reception was very nice with a little attention found on the kitchen table. The small supermarket below is very convenient. Great location to go quickly to Elafonisi beach. There are great restaurants within walking distance. We recommend this rental. Dominique, Christel and Theo.

    Christel2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Pozax’s villa is perfect if you want to stay close to the famous Elafonisi beach (5km). The villa is large, clean and comfortable, with air conditioning and a patio with a swimming pool. From there you can see the sea and beautiful sunsets! You need a car to move around, the area is very quiet and a little bit isolated, but there are some very good Greek taverns very close. The villa’s staff is super nice, kind and welcoming!

    Annalice2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Theodoris was very organized and supportive, helping make our check in a breeze. The new apartment villa with a gorgeous view and pool was breathtaking! Everything was just right, and we really enjoyed our stay as a family with four children, ages 9, 7, 5, and 2 years old. It was within 5km of the beautiful beach at Elafonisi, and walking distance to Kosmos Fish Market restaurant, which was truly delicious and wonderful service, and a couple other restaurants. They offered discounts at the adjoining mini market, which was perfect for picking up fresh local eggs, milk, local wine, etc. The proprietor was even kind enough to give us each a slice of her homemade marble poundcake! We would recommend this place for all -- but especially for family travelers -- and we hope to find our way back someday.

    Victor2019-05-18T00:00:00Z

  • Perfect for those who like remote places. It is peacful but with all the essentials around it. Beautiful beaches nearby and a few good restaurants with trafitional greek food in the village. The villa is nice and clean. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool!! Although we didn't meet Thodoris in person the communication was smooth and we felt really welcomed. I recommend his place without hesitation!

    Michael2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, as you are a 2 kilometers away from Elafonisi Beach parking. This place is full of everything you need including a fully stocked kitchen with Tupperware for the beach, including a cooler, 2 chairs, and 2 umbrellas. The home is full of amenities, including everything hygiene related,(sponges,toothbrush,toothpaste,laundry detergent, soap, dish soap.) The hammocks were truly enjoyable and the grill was great. Not to mention the house is also next to a warm watered lake collecting saltwater from the ocean this place is called the white lake beach. This place is super relaxing with rocks and mountains surrounding it so you aren’t bothered by wind on windy days. The host was super helpful and offered recommendations on local restaurants and also recommended white lake beach, which really isn’t sponsored online as you’ll only find a handful of locals there. The only downside about this place would be the inability to stream with the WiFi on late nights. Although the strength of the connection was strong enough to search on google with. But being the fact that you are far away from urban areas, this could be the reason. But no fret as we were there for 2 nights we just used our data from our cellular devices. This is something that will be fixed with time I’m sure.

    Είναι μία διώροφη νεόκτιστη μεζονέτα , σε παραδοσιακό στυλ, που συνδυάζει φυσικά στοιχεία της Κρήτης, στο κέντρο ενός ελαιώνα, με μαγευτική θέα την θάλασσα και το βουνό, 5 χλμ από την εξωτική παραλία του Ελαφονησίου.
    Η Βίλα Έβενος, με εξωτερική πισίνα 38 τμ, με γρανιτοπέτρωμα στο πάτωμα και ξύλινα δοκάρια στην οροφή, είναι εσωτερικά 140 τετραγωνικών μέτρων, με μπαλκόνια στις τρεις πλευρές του κτιρίου, με παράθυρα παντού και χωρισμένη σε δύο επίπεδα. Η κεντρική είσοδος οδηγεί στον ενιαίο χώρο με το νησιώτικο σαλόνι και την γωνιά με το χτιστό κρεβάτι δίπλα στο παραδοσιακό τζάκι. Σε υπερυψωμένο επίπεδο του ισογείου βρίσκεται η τραπεζαρία και η κουζίνα, σμιλεμένες από υλικά της παραδοσιακής αρχιτεκτονικής της περιοχής. Ο χώρος της κουζίνας είναι πλήρως εξοπλισμένος από ηλεκτρικά είδη για μία πολυτελή, άνετη και σύγχρονη διαβίωση από τα βασικά έως μικροσυσκευές: ψυγείο, κουζίνα-φούρνος, πλυντήριο πιάτων, μικροφούρνος, βραστήρας, καφετιέρα, τοστιέρα κλπ.

    Προσωπικά, λατρεύω την ποικίλια του φυσικού τοπίου.Η Βίλα Έβενος βρίσκεται απέναντι από την Ιερά Μονή της Χρυσοσκαλίτισσας, στο νοτιοδυτικό άκρο του Ν. Χανίων, 5χλμ από την μαγευτική παραλία του Ελαφονησίου, που αποτελεί έναν από τους πιο δημοφιλείς τουριστικούς προορισμούς, σε μία εξωτική περιοχή. Από την άλλη η απεριόριστη θέα στους καταπράσινους λόφους, το ατέλειωτο μπλε προς το Λιβυκό, οι ανισόπεδοι κήποι, με διάφορα είδη από δέντρα και βότανα της Κρήτης, τα μυρωδάτα λουλούδια και οι ανέσεις στους εσωτερικούς χώρους καθιστούν την βίλα Έβενος ένα ιδανικό χώρο διαμονής, για αξέχαστες διακοπές, σε κάθε εποχή του χρόνου. Για τον επισκέπτη που έρχεται για πρώτη φορά, αυτό που χαρακτηρίζει το Ελαφονήσι και το κάνει μέρος εξωτικό, είναι οι μικρές νησίδες με την πολύ ψιλή λευκή αμμουδιά που ροδίζει από την σκόνη θρυμματισμένων κοχυλιών , η λιμνοθάλασσα που σχηματίζεται , τα τυρκουάζ αβαθή νερά, οι καταπράσινοι ατέλειωτοι κολπίσκοι και το διάσημο κεδρόδασος. Πρόκειται για ένα παραμυθένιο μέρος με κάτασπρη άμμο, τροπικά νερά, πανέμορφους λείους λαξευμένους βράχους, ενδημικά βότανα και αιωνόβιους άρκευθους που συνθέτουν ένα ανεπανάληπτο σκηνικό. Η φήμη του Κεδρόδασους και του Ελαφονησιού αύξησαν στο κατακόρυφο τον αριθμό των επισκεπτών στην προστατευόμενη περιοχή Natura, με σπάνια είδη φυτών και πτηνών. Θεωρείται διαμετακομιστικό κέντρο αποδημητικών πουλιών και τοποθεσία ωοτοκίας της χελώνας caretta caretta.

  • Maria’s place is lovely. Very close to some lovely beaches and local restaurants. There is a flat downstairs which shares the pool but the house still feels very private. The house is more spacious than the photographs suggest - all in all a great place. Thanks!.

  • The address on Google Maps is correct. The complex is really nice and well kept. The individual units are huge and very modern. Would highly recommend staying here.

    Denny2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We just came back from our two weeks' stay at Villa Evenos! The villa is a fabulous traditional house with a lot of space for a family stay and Maria gave a lot of attention to details. The house is better equipped than any other house we have rented in Crete and you definitely find everything you need - or even more :-). When we arrived, Maria had filled the fridge already with lots of food and drinks so that we didnt have to find a supermarket right away. the villa is very close to the fabulous Elafonisi beach and the tavernas in the village are great, too! Don't miss to visit the White lake beach close by, too! this is a hidden gem compared to the crowded Elafonisi beach. Maria met us at one of the taverns close by to direct us to the house when we arrived in the middle of the night...this helped us a lot! From the balconies of the villa, you have great views onto the sea and the surrounding landscapes and the villa also has a great and clean pool in the garden. With 3 bedrooms, there is plenty of space for a family to enjoy a great stay. We can definitely recommend the villa and Maria and her husband Mikhalis are lovely and very caring hosts. Thanks, Maria, for hosting us and we will sure come back to you again :-)!

  • We had a great stay at Maria's place. Many terraces, awesome swimming pool, confortable bedrooms. It was very quiet, close to taverns and beautiful Elafonisi beach. Thank you !

    Adrien2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is big with all needed facilities and a nice swimming pool. It is easy to go to Elafonisi (or other beaches) by car, and there are nice restaurants and the necessary shops around. Maria and her family are very friendly and helpful.

    Marcello2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's villa was absolutely amazing-it was our first place we stayed at in Greece and was incredible. Maria was very kind and gracious in welcoming us to her home. The house is wonderful and being close to Elafonissi beach makes it a treat. The restaurants nearby are good and the house also comes with a sweet black cat that will make herself a welcome visitor on occasion. We loved the views to the olive tree groves and monastery on the cliff nearby and it was nice to hear the bells on the local goat and sheep herds on occasion. The swimming pool is a wonderful amenity on the hot days too. One small thing to note is that there is also an attached unit in the rear so the pool and laundry are shared. We really enjoyed meeting the guests in the rear unit at the pool but it's important to know that you don't have exclusive access to that part of the property. At Elafonissi, the caves and ridge above with a small shrine are must-see things to do there. The main beach is beautiful with lots of beach-chairs and palm-shades but the highlight from my experience is found by walking through the marked path through the sand dunes (or wading around the rocks to the right of the main beach) and then you can see the higher ridge with caves in the distance. The first day we went there I thought that part was off limits and you can't see the ridge/caves/shrine from the main beach, but the second day we went back and found this area-really stunningly beautiful.....

  • Maria's place was beautiful and she is a very great host. It is super spacious and you have a really good view. The place also provides everything you need for a longer stay. You are very close to great beaches (Elafonissi and White Lake). The Restaurants in the area (10 minute walk) are also really really good. Can't recommend it enough.

  • A charming little place surrounded by beautiful flowers and mountains. Mary and her cute puppy showed us in, and made sure we have everything we need. She also gave us good local tips of where to go for dinner, and the location of a nice hidden beach. The house(s) are well designed and very comfortable, and fully equipped. We recommend this place greatly

    Yotam2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very pleasant stay here at Ellafos traditional living. It is very cosy and is equipped with all the extra kitchen utensils you may need if you wanna cook for yourselves. The location is great as it's not far from the beautiful beaches around the area (Elafonisi, White Lake Beach...). The recommendations we got from Mary, the incredibly nice lady who took care of us there, were excellent. She went above and beyond to make our stay more than enjoyable. When my boyfriend was sick she instantly came checking on him giving some medicine to help. If you are looking for tranquillity and amazing hosts, this is the place for you!

    Stefanie2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautifully located in a tiny village in the mountains about 15 min drive from Elafonissi Beach away. Roads are a bit narrow and windy, so I recommend to get there before sunset. The place itself is very nice, clean and well equipped. Our stay was very relaxing and peaceful. Also, our host was so friendly and generous and made us feel very welcome.

    James2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended, the mountain view is superb! The reception went very well.

    Johanna2019-09-26T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful beaches can be reached by car in a few minutes, yet quiet and relaxing holidays are guaranteed! We have enjoyed our stay. Vagos and his family are very welcoming hosts!

    Helga2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place is fantastic! We made a last-minute reservation and Vagos and his parents Antonio and Kalliopi still managed to accommodate us flawlessly. The house was stocked with homemade local goodies (Raki, Cake, freshly picked grapes, white wine, olive spread and more) and was perfectly clean and tidy. For access to Elafonisi beach and other amazing nearby beaches, the location simply can't be beaten. Minimarkets and Tavernas within walking distance are an additional added bonus to the location. For a home away from home in Crete, look no further than Vagos's place!

  • The apartment is very well located to enjoy all the beaty of that part of Crete, with awesome beaches easily reachable by car in 5 minutes as Elafonissi and Kedrodasos. There are also good restaurants in walking distance and a couple of mini-markets for whar you may need. The accomodation is very nice and spacious, but what makes really the difference is the the so great hospitality offered by Vagos, mainly by messages, and above all by his parents Antonio and Kalliopi. They represent perfectly the AirBnb spirit, with the possibility to feel like at home with so friendly owners, always available for tips and precious gifts since the check-in. We definitely recommend this accomodotation and we are particularly happy to have new greek friends! :)
