We have just spent 3 weeks at this wonderful villa. The best we have ever stayed at. Spotlessly clean and so well equipped. The views over Elounda and the bay are magnificent and you never tire of it. There are lots of seating areas and terraces and the bbq area with wood oven and beer fridge is lovely. The pool is well maintained and there are plenty of sunbeds and pool towels are included. You definitely need a car and if you have mobility issues then this isn't the place for you as there are steep steps down to the villa from the carpark. A local taxi firm are very happy to come up to the villa. They have large minibus taxis if there are a lot of you.
Thank you Mandy and Tony for making our holiday so special . We will definitely return.
The villa is even more beautiful in real life. The view is stunning and the beaches near by are the best in Crete. Nothing was too much trouble for Anthony and Mandy: Simply perfect.
Beautiful spacious 4 bedroom villa, 3 of these double bedrooms have direct access onto the huge terrace area, ample space for 8 adults with 3 large bathrooms, large open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area with breathtaking views across prestigious Elounda.
The outside space does not disappoint... beautiful pool and sunbathing area, large outside dining area with a separate dining and barbecue area.
I can not recommend this villa more highly, I travelled with a party of 8 adults, we all loved this property, location and the standard of accommodation was 5 star. Every little detail has been catered for, and it was immaculately clean. The pictures do not do this property justice - book for summer 2018 you will not be disappointed!! We will certainly be returning.
Villa in a relaxing position near to amenities but far enough away to be able to enjoy the most wonderful views
Villa Ellie far exceeded our expectations. It's even better than the pictures. There's lots of room, both indoors and out. Three of the bedrooms open out on to a huge balcony. There are amazing views everywhere you look and lots of privacy. This villa is very well maintained and has everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen to a relaxing swimming pool, barbecue, pizza oven, games, CDs, hair dryers and more. The hosts, Mandy and Tony, did everything possible to make our stay a great experience, including retrieving our lost luggage from the airport! The Villa is a short drive from the town of Elounda. We would definitely recommend booking this place if you plan to visit Crete.
Spacious and very private villa, up in the hills from Elounda with a pool and two terraces (one designed for barbecue). The three of us stayed there for a week early May and enjoyed every day of it. The villa is very well equipped - really nothing was missing.
On arrival we got a warm welcome and a tour from the hosts despite the late hour. Some food, wine and beer were provided so we didn't have to rush to a grocery early in the morning.
A nice pool with sunbeds offering a great view on the bay and Elounda - one can easily spend time there without going anywhere.
It is less then 10 min drive from Elounda and the beaches, about half an hour from Agios Nikolaos.
Clean, spacious and private, warm and responsive hosts - we will certainly come back sometime.
My family and I traveled to many destinations across the world, but the experience we got staying at the villa Ellie in Greece this summer was unbelievable! From the moment of our arrival to the villa our minds were blown away! The villa is located at the very top of the mountain; therefore the view that you get is spectacular. You get to see the most beautiful sunsets overlooking at the mountains and the waterfront; and even more breathtaking starry skies and the view of the night city. The villa seems to be secluded from every other house located nearby, making this experience seem very private.
The villa is very spacious. Although we had a crowd of 6 people (all different ages and interests), there was room for everybody, and a quite place to “escape” if needed. The villa has two big terraces and a big pool area, making this a perfect vacation spot for those who enjoy spending their vacation relaxing outside, and not go sightseeing every day. For those that enjoy sightseeing, the villa was in a good proximity to various attractions. There are also a variety of beaches near the villa, so we had no problem getting around (we had two rental car).
The Inside the house id very equipped, and has all the things that you can imagine (starting from hair driers, and irons, ending with detergent). We were especially pleasantly surprised with how well equipped the kitchen is. There is plenty of dining locations in the house- a dining room/living room inside the house, a beautiful balcony terrace outside the house, and a nice brick stone oven on the upper level terrace. All three dining areas have beautiful views!
Every bedroom is connected to the main balcony, therefore you wake up to a spectacular view every morning. The rooms were spacious, and with a lot of storage space. The beds were very comfortable.
The owners of the house are very pleasant and helpful. They were always there to help with any questions we might have had. Overall, I would grade our stay as an A++. Would definitely come back again, and recommend to all my friends.
Thank you so much Mandy and Tony! ☺
