We arrived "on spec". Looked like a simple unpretentious establishment. As I said, everything worked, all was very clean. Kitchen was well supplied. Hosts were wonderfully accommodating and kind. The saltwater pool was lovely and clean in the evenings. New spa pool (unused) which I did not get to try out. I really loved it. Simple, but absolutely faultless.

We have spent a lovely week at the Edelweiss with our family who live in New Zealand. We booked 2 spa suites but after 2 days Trish and Jim kindly moved our son, his wife and two young children into a one bedroom unit which was much more suitable for them. Each room that we used was spotlessly clean, and... More

The welcome was very friendly and efficient and the accommodation incredibly clean. We had booked a two bedroom apartment which it turned out had a strange layout as the bathroom was accessed through the kitchen on the first floor with the two bedrooms and a toilet on the ground floor, but it was ideal for us as the view was...

The pictures don't do this property justice. The pool is very nice along with the jacuzzi. It is well run and well appointed rooms with a kitchenette. The rates are reasonable and everything is quite clean. It is nice walking distance to the ferry landing and downtown Pahia. We had a very enjoyable time here.

Really enjoyed our recent stay. We had friends from California with us and they were impressed with the Kiwi hospitality. We all had downstairs studios which were very clean and tidy, couldn't have wished for more. We will stay again and recommend to friends and family.

Hi Nic, Isn't the Jazz Festival just wonderful. So glad you chose to stay with us to enjoy it and that the kids had a good time too.

Great motel, lovely couple running the place. Although the pool is heated it was probably a bit too cold to use at 26 degrees, and outside temp of about 15. Were informed the spa pool was not hot either so did not venture. Motels rooms very clean, lots of towels, good space. First nite we had 3 adults and 3... More

Hi Hinukoa, Thank you for taking the time to review our property and your wonderful feedback. Due to the storm we had to conserve water so unfortunately the spa pool was out of action.
