I enjoyed my stay at Elma's dream; The personnel is very friendly, nice rooms, spacious terrace & relaxing environment :) Moreover the swimming pool is very clean and the location is very convenient (close to a beautiful sandy beach and near the town of Chania)!

Spent a week at Elma's Dream in early June with my wife and I am so glad I made this selection. The two room apartment was spacious, airy and spotless. It had everything you could want for self catering and a patio and balcony meant you could chase the sun all day. Lovely to sit on either for meals and drinks.
The pool was warm and the water crystal clear. Plenty of sunbeds, although space is linited but was not a problem. There was also sunbeds in our patio area.
It is situated in a quiet area 50m from a nice beach and three other beaches to the west towards Kalamaki are within a good walking distance. Chania is also within walking distance with many restaurants along the way. If walking not your thing, buses and taxis available next to appartments.
Andreas and his family friendly and work hard to make your stay a happy one. Hope Paul is still employed after Czech Rep beat Greece in Euros!
I hope to return next year.

Our family of 3 (my partner and I and 2yo daughter) enjoyed an excellent weeks stay at Elma's Dream Apartments. Whilst looking for somewhere to stay we initially wanted something that was: within walking distance of the Old Town (Chania), close to a beach, had a swimming pool, nice, large, clean rooms and somewhere we could 'eat-in' if necessary.

Our apartment was large and clean, had a private terrace at the back and shared terrace at the front which trapped the sun in the afternoon and from where you could also see the snow-topped mountains in the distance. The kitchen had everything required for anybody who wished to stay in and eat, there was also conveniently 2 small supermarkets, a cash machine and a reasonably priced car rental place right outside the entrance (a larger, cheaper supermarket is also a 10 minute walk away). We couldnt fault anything with the apartment, the beds were obviously new and extremely comfortable and the babies cot was provided free of charge.

Although the weather was fairly hot (mid 20s) the pool took a while to heat up in the sun which was understandable given that it was a 2m deep pool. Im sure this wouldnt be an issue in the high season.

The beach located 50m from the apartment is nice, clean and extremely handy and there is also a slightly nicer beach located 20 mins walk west along the coastal path.

It takes 20 mins to walk into Chania although the road isnt particularly pedestrian friendly (especially with a buggy). This was a bit of a disappointment but there are buses in and out fairly regularly, tickets for which you can buy at Elma's or the supermarkets. When we stayed the last bus back was around 2230, and taxis from the centre were reasonably 7 euros.

Elma's Dream Apartments are perfectly suited to anyone who wants the proximity to an authentic town like Chania, its harbour and real restaurants without having to compromise by giving up on the swimming pool/beach.

It was also extremely cheap and I wouldnt hesitate in recommending it to friends.

...from a superb week staying at Elma's Dream Apartments. Andreas and his family were very welcoming and very happy to share their local knowledge and make numerous recommendations that all turned out to be fantastic. Very well located close to a lovely sandy beach and supermarkets and on the right side of the island for lagoon, mountain and gorge trips. Rooms beautifully clean although it would have been nice to have a stand-up shower. Would definately go back.

We spent our holidays last october at the Elma's Dream Villa. Unfortunately, the weather was not that summerlike as expected, so we could not use the pool. However, the villa is really nice and we enjoyed staying there. Supermarkets are just around the corner, the beautiful beaches are quite near and also restaurants are close by. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We can really recommend the villa.

Alhough we stayed only for one night and it was the start of the season, the owners made as feel very welcome and answered all our concerns (late arrival, early departure, travelling with smaill child) with grace and efficiency.
The room was twice what we thought it would be, fully equiped and sunny.
Only downside is that you really have to know where the hotel is to find it (it is on a dead alley with no crossing roads) but a phone call took care of that.
Excellent value for money and excellent all around.
Would definitely recommend it!
