“Indeed a dream villa”
We are a Danish family of 2 adults and 2 boys aged 11 and 8 who stayed at the villa for 2 weeks during the summer of 2014. We have rented villas/apartments 5-6 times before for holidays and this villa is the best rental we have tried. Villa is located 3-4 km outside the center of Chania. We had a rental car which was very convenient but not a must. There are two super markets (Lidl & Inka) 300m away. Nearest beach is about 500m away and very nice with fine sand and nearby cliffs where you can walk. Also in walking distance are 3-4 restaurants which we frequently visited. So overall the location of the villa is very good and from the huge terrasse on the 1. floor you have a beautiful view of mountains on one side and the sea on the other. The villa has a very good size for 4 persons. Two bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms, one toilet, kitchen and a large living room. Each bedroom and the living room have an a/c unit so even though temperature outside can reach 35d, you can make it very comfortable inside. Villa has two pools, one regular and one small one for babies. We only used the regular which is approx 4,5x4m and with a water depth of about 1,45m. Very fine size for our two boys who used the pool a lot! The owner, Andreas, lives close by and is very very helpful with anything we might need. There were two cleaning ladies coming about three times a week. Might not be the most thorough cleaning but your towels and sheets get changed. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the villa. A few more utensils in the kitchen would be nice and a few other minor things could be better but it does not change our view that the villa is indeed a dream villa. It comes highly recommended :-)
“Wonderful Villa in a peaceful environment”
The Villa Elma&Andreas is located in a peaceful surrounding, but still close to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores (Lidl and INKA). This was an ideal accomodation for our family with two children, aged 4 and 6. Own private swimming pools, dishwasher, washing machine, Wi-Fi connection, good cleaning service and a well equipped kitchen. We really were able to relax in this Villa, which was one of our main hopes for the holiday. I would really reccomend this Villa to everone who seek a holiday in a peaceful environment with some own privacy. The owner, Andreas, was wery kind and helpful.
We stayed at Villa Elma for 2 nights + 1 night in a one-bedroom apartment of the facility. Overall we found andreas and his lovely wife extremely helpful and friendly. The place is easy enough to find with the directions provided by andreas... (don't rely on a GPS though - ours could not get us there). Wi-Fi was appreciated at Villa Elma, but unfortunately it wasn't available at the apartment. The villa is big enough to accommodate easily and very comfortably 2 couples and a child or two. The exterior is where you will probably spend most of your time, with 2 pools (one for children and one for adults) as well as a large balcony on the 2nd floor; the property is secure and very quiet. The landscaping around the properties (Elma & Andreas) is gorgeous and well maintained. The beach, which by the way is one of the best we've seen in Crete (but we didn't know that at the time since we were just arriving) is a 5-minute walk. Beautiful sandy beach that we tried on the day we left. The only suggestions that I would make to make the visitors' experience more interesting would be to ensure that the electronic equipment in the villa works (the radio didn't) and to leave instructions for TV & satellite or any other matter that is of importance. The walls could also use some décor. As for the apartments, Wi-Fi would be a good asset. The little bar where we can grab coffee or a drink (and chat with other visitors) is a definite asset for clients. The pool is great, although there could be less animals around the pool area. This was our first exposure to the affinity and generosity that Cretan people show, not only to people but also to animals. It seems that they all feel responsible for saving a few dogs and cats. So dogs and cats are very present in Crete, but they are all good-natured. They stick to themselves...except for cats who are allowed to beg for food at most restaurants. Overall a great experience. Thanks andreas. We will definitely recommend your villas.
We had a wonderful holiday in this nice villa. Private pool, air condition, short walk to beach and restaurants. Lovely.
Having spent 9 nights at Villa Elma & Andreas we can wholeheartedly recommend the Villa for anyone looking for a base on the Western side of Crete. The Villa itself was perfect for our family ; very clean, well spaced and with a lovely pool. The location was ideal : quite but only a 5min walk to the beach,restaurants and supermarkets. Thank you andreas for your hospitality.
“Great price, great place!”
We had a great stay at Elma's Dream. The place was spotlessly clean and all of the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our apartment was basic but comfortable. The beach is really close and very beautiful. Bus connections to the city centre were frequent and extremely easy to use. There are convenience stores nearby where all the essentials can be bought (albeit at a price!!). It was the perfect place for us!
nice green place closed to a lovely beach, calm and good starting position for all kind of daytours.
“Perfect lodgings for visiting west Crete”
I spent 10 days in villa Elma&Andreas in September 2012 with the members of my family. The location is ideal for exploring west Crete, very close to beautiful Chania town. In the neighborhood there are hypermarkets Lidl and Inka and lots of local super markets with fresh fruits. Villa is very comfortable, spacious and contains everything you need for a pleasant stay - there are plenty of kitchen utensils, including even those for barbecue. Dishwasher and washing machine were nice bonus. Wireless internet was running flawlessly, but the choice of satellite channels was limited (it wasn't important to us, but to someone it might be). The yard is beautiful, full of flowers and with nicely trimmed grass. It was great to have a hose for car washing too. The area is ideal for relaxed vacation, there is no traffic or any other source of noise. Villa was cleaned twice a week. The owner, Andreas, was kind and ready to answer any question and so was the lady who did the cleaning, Elizabeth. This is the best lodgings we had so far on the Greek islands and I would choose it again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend it to everyone who wants to visit west Crete.
Great place. Quietly, relaxing, suitable for families but also for young people. Kindness and help at any time
“Very nice villa”
We spent our holidays last october at the Elma's Dream Villa. Unfortunately, the weather was not that summerlike as expected, so we could not use the pool. However, the villa is really nice and we enjoyed staying there. Supermarkets are just around the corner, the beautiful beaches are quite near and also restaurants are close by. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We can really recommend the villa.
