Elounda Heights Apartments and Studios
Ranked #2 of 35 Hotels in Elounda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2012

This was our second visit to this incredible property situated 250 metres up a very steep hill but the view at the top is to die for. The appts. and studios are well maintained and very comfortable with the studios in particular having excellent patios and balconys.The whole complex is covered in beautiful flowered gardens with every type of fruit, vegetable and herbs that you can imagine. These are put to excellent use by Vangellis the owner in his cullinary delights served from breakfast to dinner. As an added bonus Vangellis has now decided to include air-con free of charge and the tokens for the meter are supplied. I would recommend this self catering accommodation to anyone and the evening meal served on the premises is as good as it gets.
The harbour resort of Elounda is also a peaceful and quiet resort with dozens of restaurants to dine in with good public transport links to other resorts in the area.

Room Tip: The rooms are a mixture single and double beds so specify your preference when booking.

I can only endorse all the positive comments that have already been posted. Vangelis, Ann and Deborah made us so welcome. The appartment was perfect for our needs and the view from the balcony was stunning.Vangelis works so hard and really takes great pleasure in his home, garden and cooking,the food offered by him was fantastic. Yes the hill is steep but not impossible and it is worth it to be high enough above the village to get the views.

If you want flawless views, a quiet setting (no cars or bars) and a great menu then look no further. The owner Vangelis has been a chef for many years and has perfected a variety of classic greek dishes that vary every day. Every evening we sat on the terrace eating moussaka or kleftiko and watching the sun set over the Elounda Bay. After a couple of wines you simply do not want to leave! The Elounda Heights offers a personal hospitality touch that is missed by so many corporate hotels in the area like the 5 star giants. We've been here twice now and it was nice to see that the air-con is now free. We also rented a car so the hill was not a problem. Alternatively you can rent a scooter or quad (really fun) for a handful of Euros from the many agencies in Elounda village. See you next year!

Just returned from Elounda Heights and can not wait to get back again. As per usual Ann and Vangelis have gone out of their way to ensure that you get out of your stay what you want, we have spent a week chilling by the pool. The accommodation was spotless (thanks Chistina) the food excellent and the company of Ann,Vangelis, Deborah and the other guests on a evening all made this an excellent break. Thanks to all. Chris and Dave.

Stunning location and perfect hosts. My partner and i stayed for a week in the Icarus apartment in Elounda Heights. We were charmed by the whole place. Ann and Vangelis were very welcoming and the place was spotless. Pool was excellent with stunning views. Vangelis can cook like a dream - we ate there 3 nights because the food was so good. He also knows a great deal about the Island and places to visit. There is a hill but its 10 mins walk down to the centre of town so you don't need to worry about taxis or who has to drive - and you have had wine before need to walk back up. We fully intend to visit again ASAP. It really is the best spot in Elounda with amazing views over the whole bay including Spinalonga Island.

Room Tip: All rooms are either ground or first floor. First floor will have better views and some breeze. Th...

Just returned from a week staying at the Elounda Heights. From the momment Vangelis picked us up from the Square (no dragging suitcases up the hill), everything was excellent. We were welcomed with warmth and a big greek smile.

Our apartment (Eros) was overlooking the bay and had a180degree view which was astounding. The apartment was spotless and remained so. Linen and towels were changed every 2 day and the apartment cleaned. The apartment came fully equipped and it was easy to keep clean and make yourself at home. The welcome pack on arrival was most appreciated.

As with previous posts Vangeli's cooking was second to none and his care of the gardens was obvious with lots of beautiful flowers and shrubs which smelt gorgeous.

We were looking forward to a relaxing break which was exactly what we got thanks to the Ann and Vangelis and their total professionalism. What a team!
