We 4 (two adults, two young kids) stayed at Elma's for 14 nights, enjoying the ospitality, the quiet during the night, the cleaningness of the rooms (everyday cleaning), two minutes away from a sandy beach perfect for kids. 2 km far wawy from Chania is the perfect place where to relax and wehre children may play and be safe.

A fantastic little place in a very quiet spot with a beautiful pool and next door to simple shopping. A very nice beach is only a 2 min walk away along a dead-end street with no traffic. Life could not be easier when the very service-minded owner takes care of everything else.

Room Tip: The apartments to the north are the most quiet ones, but those facing south are larger.

For our family it was excellent place for the holiday. The owners are so friendly and helpful! The apartment is comfortable, clean, there were enough place for two adults and two small kids. Green yard, kid's pool with tent, everything you need for the good stay.
We were without car. Near the apartment small shops, a liitle to go and you can get to the big supermarket with good choice of products (15 min to the left on road and two supermarkets, you need the second one).
Near is the bus stop to Chania: 10 min trip and you are in the charming old town.
There are two beaches near Elma's Dream: the big one is 2 min walk, the small one is 10 min walk. they are very nice. Between the beaches there is foreland, a place to make a walk (around 1 hour) to enjoy the beauty of sea and nature.

We stayed in one of the two villas at the beginning of July. The villa itself was perfect for our family of 5. The standards of cleanness were possibly the best be have ever experienced in a villa !
The immediate location was very quite but within a 5min walk we had a lovely beach and a choice of some really good restaurants. Further out, Chania, was only 10min away by car & the sights on the Western side of Crete easily accessible as half day or day trips.
We would,without a doubt, recommend this villa

We stayed here for one week in July 2013. The place is simple yet very comfortable and clean! The owners are so friendly and helpful!
Nice pool, bar and the beach is only 200 m away. The bus stop is situated just around the corner and downtown Chania is 10 minutes away.

Elmas is well worth the money and we would definitely stay here again!

Just returned from a week at Elmas Dream Appts. This is a very relaxed, 'no rules and regulations' place. We booked a studio but got a one bed apartment ( No 4 ). It was very clean ( bathroom was so-so ), kitchen is sparsely but adequately equipped. We didn't have a kettle when we arrived but when we asked Andreas for one he produced a brand new one imediately. The cleaners come every day and bedding and towels are replaced more frequently than needed. The pool is deep - really, and no signs saying how deep it is so parents beware. We are 2 couples young 50+'s and the location suited us perfectly, just a short bus ride ( get tickets for 1.1 Euro from Andreas) or walk ( no don't walk!!), from Hania where there's loads to see and do and plenty of places to eat whilst this area is quiet and the beach is fabulous and only100mtrs away ( 2 sunbeds + parasol 5 Euro).Loved the puppies running around and playing and the fact that Andreas' kids mingle with the guests kids freely. Will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and the best recommendation is that we will definitely return. Andrea's is very helpful and friendly and makes everyone feel welcome.

Room Tip: Room 4 was sheltered so stayed nice and cool. All rooms are spacious and clean.
