This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Elisabeth and as always everything has been perfect, if you are looking for a family villa you couldn't ask for more. Firstly, we had originally booked to come during 2020 but due to covid were unable to travel. Eliza very kindly agreed to let us use the deposit this year instead which we are very grateful for. Absolutely everything you could think of is catered for down to a stocked kitchen, dishwasher tablets and laundry liquid etc, but more than that it is the amazing hospitality of Stelios and his family that really make this place amazing - just to list a few things that we had as gifts during our stay, raki, honey, homemade cakes, wine, fresh cream cakes and eggs, olive oil- Absolutely amazing. The villa is in the hills above perama, 10 minute drive to the coastal town of panormos and about a 25 minute drive into rethymno so a car is a must if you want to see the island a bit, but we are just as happy to spend our days in the villa as you have everything you could need. Absolutely no negative feedback I can think of, we have a brilliant time every time we cone here. We have had the most wonderful time and can't wait to return again soon.

Nous avons passé 10 jours à la Villa Elizabeth pour notre tout premier séjour en Crète. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par le propriétaire avec des produits locaux (huile, miel, œufs, fruits et légumes). La villa, ultra propre, comporte tout le confort nécessaire Je , le jardin est magnifique et la vue à couper le souffle. Merci encore à Stelios pour son accueil chaleureux et toutes ses délicates attentions.

Villa Elisabeth was just perfect and we had such a great holiday. The owners are such lovely people and spoilt us with 2 fantastic meals as well as other goodies. The friendly personal approach the family make with guests is a rare thing these days and truly appreciated. We were 2 adults, a 6 year old and a 9 month old. To summarise the villa: quiet, private, large gardens and great sized pool accessible for both children. Local village has numerous supermarkets that has everything you need and you are also only about 30mins from Rethymnon which has a great old town. Car is essential. 10 mins drive there are a number of coastal tavernas/restaurants offering a variety cuisine. Fancy a BBQ? Get fresh pork and lamb from the local butcher in town! If you are after a quiet getaway with the family away from the general hustle and bustle then this is for you. Lots of garden/pool toys available. New swings/slide for young children as well. Stelios is very hospitable without being intrusive and having the property cleaned twice a week by a really lovely local lady was great! Elizabeth was great in the booking stage and also on arrival when we arrived late at night with young children. Also, very accommodating with some small requests eg. getting a microwave so we could sterilise baby bottles!

Villa Elisabeth is very well located in an elevated position, featuring mountain and sea views. it has a superb garden area which catches the sun throughout the day, and an excellent shady patio with table and dining chairs. We met the owner (Stelios) who was both friendly and very helpful. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided for. It's a peaceful location and a great place to relax. The local village (Perama) has a couple of small supermarkets, but there are few tourists there. Best place to go out to eat is Panormos, about 7 km away on the coast. Plenty of decent tavernas there. Make sure you hire a car!

We had a truly wonderful stay at Villa Elizabeth. This is by far the best holiday house we have been to. E Pros: heavenly pool with children's pool, mosquito windows (never saw 1 mosquito though), airco in bedrooms, toys, high chair, cot, quiet location, waning machine, swing chair, amazing view!!! On top of this all is provided for: from cutlery and hand soaps to linen and towels, washing pods,... The fridge was stashed with fresh fruits, wine, juice,water,...we got honey from Stelios' own make, raki,.. We have been recommending the house to everyone since our arrival. Hopefully we'll make it back here some day!

Villa Elisabeth is an outstanding place. From the veranda you can enjoy a spectacular panorama from the coast line near the city of Panormo to the mountains around Perama. Stelios and his family have created a paradise: The lovely garden with palms, olive trees and flowers and the Villa combining traditional creatan style with state of the art equipment. We came again for ten days in mid-May and despite one day of rain and a stormy night spent great spring vacations.

My wife and I stayed here with our 5 year old son for a week in August, and the villa really was perfect for us. We spent nearly all week in the garden and the pool, and only felt the need to visit the coast once during the trip. The garden is large enough for hide and seek, the views are wonderful and the pool is lovely and warm. The nearest village/town is not a beauty, but it does have plenty of supermarkets, and prettier coastal towns are only a 10 min drive away. The interior is spacious, the air con works really well and the kitchen had everything we needed. Everything was spotlessly clean, and Stelios made sure we had everything we wanted without intruding on our privacy. The layout was perfect for us, as upstairs you have a twin bedroom which our son slept in, then the landing, then the king bedroom for the grown ups. Both upstairs rooms, and the landing have access to the balcony/terrace, but the doors are well secured so no worries about safety. Downstairs you have the large open plan sitting room and kitchen, then the big semi-covered terrace leading to the garden. The big barbecue in the garden is fantastic, and we used it every night. If you want nightlife, this is not the place for you, but if you want some quiet and relaxing time in a gorgeous setting then I completely recommend Villa Elizabeth. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, including when we had to change our dates to fit a flight change. We booked through Holiday Lettings and had no problems from start to finish.

Nous revenons d'une semaine en vacances dans la Villa en famille et nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre sejour. La vue est magnifique, la maison est très grande et il y a tout ce dont nous avons besoin, on y retrouve tout ce que nous avons ici chez nous en France. Quant au propriétaire, il est vraiment au petits soins pour nous ! nous avons été accueilli avec les gâteaux au miel, du Raki, du miel, de l'huile d'olive fait par lui même... franchement un très grand merci au propriétaire ! Le changement des draps et des serviettes a été fait une seconde fois dans la semaine ainsi que le ménage ! le top !

Heading home tomorrow after a 9 day stay at the villa Elisabeth , the accommodation is just superb, very spacious, immaculately clean, very well equipped and maintained to a high standard, it is tastefully decorated throughout with beautiful furniture. The beds I found were very comfortable,there is excellent facilities within the villa . The grounds in which the villa stands are very well maintained and the swimming pool /jacuzzi are very clean, there is a large BBQ area also available. The views from the villa overlook the town of perama, yet we never heard any traffic noise, just that of the birds chirping, there is a villa next door but even so the grounds in which villa Elisabeth stands is completely private and not overlooked by neighbours next door.i would highly recommend a hire of a car as the property is elevated on a hill, the local town has plenty of supermarkets etc and is roughly a 5 minute drive away, this property I would not recommend to those with mobility issues, there are stairs to 2 levels and stairs to enter the property. The owner Elisabeth was very helpful before we arrived, arranging taxi transfer from the airport and putting me in touch with a car rental firm( which delivered the car to the property on date and time stated) also was available during our stay to answer any queries via e-mail,stellios her father who came when we arrived to introduce himself was most helpful ,he came 2x daily to access the garage below the property was unobtrusive and didn't come up to the villa, this was reassuring to us to know that incase we needed anything we knew he would be coming.katrina ,stellios wife came to clean during our stay, we never got to meet her. I would highly recommend this villa to anybody .Thank you to you all for making our stay an enjoyable one, we look forward to returning in the not so far distant future.
