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... More

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... More

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... More

The Elounda Island Villas where everything we were looking for and more. A quiet rustic Greek experience on paradise. All our expectations were exceeded. Lida and her staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The little beach across the road is the best kept secret! The accomodation units were simple, very traditional and rustic but perfect in... More

It's a wonderful place, very quiet with an astonishing view on the sea. The rooms are great even if there is no air conditioning. Lida and her team are very helpful and kind to everybody. They give many recommandations of visits to do.

We have been having holidays in Elounda for over four years now and initially stumbled on Lida & Elounda Island Villas when we had done a stupidly long walk on the peninsular underestimating the heat and the fluid required! Lida fed & watered us, and we've been going back there, +\- family, for ice cream (incredible), breakfasts, food and coffee.... More

A special family holiday for six adults looking for the real Crete. This place is truly rustic, including the option to eat Cretan homemade food at the Taverna or cook your own meals in the apartments. We could see the lively village of Elounda from our apartments, especially at night but experienced the peace of Elounda Island except of the... More

We spent a marvellous stay at Elounda Island villas at the beginning of July. We were looking for a quiet, pleasant and charming place to stay with our 3 kids, and we've found it! We received a gentle welcome from everyone, particularly from Lyda. Many thanks and who knows... see you soon! Sophie
