We were thrilled with our stay. The location is absolutely perfect. Its like you're hidden away in your own little peaceful oasis but loved that we were just a short walking distance from nearby swimming spots and the main town of Elounda. The rooms were decorated simply, spotlessly clean and comfortable with fabulous sea views and breezes. The owner Leda...

After long and hard research for accomodation we found Elounda Island Villas and were so glad we did! We loved the peaceful location away from the crowds yet walking distance into Elounda village (ca 25min). You have the benefit of the beautiful view over the bay across to Elounda and many times we enjoyed the evening sun on our terrace...

We returned here for our honeymoon and we have never returned to a holiday destination, however much we enjoyed it, which speak volumes about this spot of beauty and its owners. This time we had villa number 10 (I think), an apartment with different levels and a big rooftop balcony with sun loungers, a table and chairs. The view from...

The views from our balcony here were the most stunning of our whole stay in Crete - I frequently found myself on the balcony just staring at the sky and the water. Very simple, basic accommodation and the unique setting adds to the sense of 'escape'. Owners/managers were extremely nice, as were other guests, some of whom had been coming...

Lovely accommodation in peaceful setting. The villas are designed with a tasteful simplicity and are a perfect backdrop for the stunning views across the bay. The snack bar is a lovely place to sit and eat, read or just relax and do nothing. Clear, clean water in which to bathe and snorkel. We were on foot, which was manageable but...

Elounda Island Villas was absolutely beautiful. We had a 3 story villa with a huge balcony overlooking the water, which was only steps away for a quick swim right in front of the hotel. Within walking distance is another great spot for swimming (not a sandy beach but crystal clear water). The villa was fully equipped and we had many...

The Elounda Island Villas where everything we were looking for and more. A quiet rustic Greek experience on paradise. All our expectations were exceeded.
