We had a fantastic stay at the Seafront apartment. It is in a brilliant location close to all the restaurants, shops, harbour and beach. The views across the bay from all rooms and the wrap around balcony are sublime. It is clean, well-resourced and great for cooking in or eating out. Hot water was plentiful, allowing for a family of five to shower without running out. The air con in all rooms was very effective. The house keeping was excellent, with regular changes of bed linen and towels, cleaning and emptying of bins – all of which was very much appreciated and added to a relaxing stay. Michael arranged taxi transfers for us and we arrived to a thoughtful welcome pack of breakfast items and beers. We were also invited to a lovely welcome coffee event with his mother and were given some good local advice. Overall Michael was a great host – warm, generous and on hand but non-invasive. Elounda is a delightful friendly resort, with a superb range of eating options, beautiful bathing spots, great terrain for walking and running and overall a very safe place for a family holiday. We definitely hope to return to Elounda and this fabulous apartment.
This was the best equipped apartment we have stayed at in Greece. Everything you might need is there - even a washing machine! The provisions when we arrived around midnight were very welcome too. It is traditionally furnished & clean. The balcony stretches around two sides of the apartment & you are so close to the sea it's almost like being on the deck of a ship! The view is beautiful, particularly towards Elounda harbour & Spinalonga. There are many tavernas close by if you don't want to self cater & the harbour area with shops & more tavernas is just a 5 minute walk away. A word of warning - the apartment is on the second floor so don't bring heavy suitcases! Also be aware that the air conditioning overflow bottle on the balcony will need emptying regularly if you are using the air conditioning - otherwise you may have a mini flood below the air conditioning unit on the bedroom wall like we did! We would highly recommend this apartment. Elounda is lovely & Michael & his mother were friendly & very helpful. We had a great holiday there.
We booked Michael's apartment for its balcony and fabulous sea view and were not disappointed! It's location is perfect for all that Elounda has to offer but quiet enough for a very relaxing holiday.
The apartment had everything we could possibly want and we were delighted to find fruit, water, beer and supplies for breakfast when we arrived after a very late flight - very thoughtful!
Towels and bed linen were regularly changed, bins and the apartment cleaned every two days - great, friendly service from Eleni!
Michael was kind enough to arrange airport transfers for us which were far better than a normal taxi - very stylish!
We are are looking forward to staying here again, Michael was most hospitable and helpful but may we suggest that the bathroom needs a little modernisation to bring it up to the high standard of the rest of the apartment.
Hope to return soon ...
We love everything about this beautiful apartment that has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. You immediately feel at home. The location is very special too.
When we arrived Michael had very kindly left provisions and pastries for us.
We were invited to spend time with Michael and his parents. We had a fantastic time with genuinely warm friendly people.
We have already booked to go again next year, and we are really looking forward to seeing Michael Rena and Jim x
The position and the views from this apartment are spectacular. The facilities are really good, clean and comfortable.
The owner, Mihalis did all he could to make our stay special.
The apartment is set right on the water's edge with stunning views across to Spinalonga, right in the heart of Elounda but with hardly anybody passing and no noise. The location could not be better. The owner Michael went out of his way to accommodate us after the demise of Monarch Airlines. Without his help we would have lost the whole holiday. There were just a couple of minor irritations. The shower head needs replacing as it leaks very badly and although it was ok for two, there would not be enough plates, cups, cutlery for five people as advertised. We were only given one key which also works the electricity which means that you cannot go out independently. Overall we had a superb holiday on a beautiful island.
We arrived late at night in Elounda, dropped our cases off in the apartment and found a lovely little cafe/bar on the waterfront to the left of the accommodation where we unwound with a drink after a days travelling. We woke to find that the owner Michael had left breakfast essentials in the fridge, he also visited us later to make sure we had settled in OK & to deliver lovely pastries from Elounda Bakery. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment clean and comfortable with the advantage of a washing machine and ironing facilities. Both bedrooms and the kitchen have doors which lead out on to a very large balcony which has beautiful unobstructed views of the whole of Elounda bay and Spinalonga.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor & well located just yards from the water & from the front you can walk left past lovely restaurants & taverna's to the harbour which takes minutes or walk to the right past more restaurants to a small quiet beach & the causeway.
We spent a couple of days just sitting on the balcony enjoying the view with everything on hand after stocking up the fridge as we had one of the best views in Elounda,
