ARTISTS STUDIO - WHAT A TREAT

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-Jun-2012
  • Date of Stay: May 2012
Thank you so much we enjoyed our stay
Magnificent views of Elounda Bay
'The Artists' Studio what a treat
Romantic, quirky, cosy so sweet

Top of the hill you stand so tall
It makes you appreciated life in all
The flowers, insects, birds and bees
Rustling leaves on pretty palm trees

Your walls I bet hide a story or two
Balcony views crystal waters so blue
Sound of the locals fill the air
Breathtaking views shed a tear

Morning sunshine fills your bed
'This is the life' it must be said
If you're lucky enough to rent this place
It'll deliver a smile upon your face

Adele & Brian Dunn 28/5 - 8/6/2012
Thank you so much for making our holiday a good one. Lady Jane who lives downstairs the owner of the Studio is ever so kind and she will wash your bed sheets, towels and beach towels (all of which are provided) as and when required, your own attire can be washed with the help of a washing machine in your studio. The bathroom is quaint with plenty of spare towels to dry yourself after a lovely hot shower everyday with a gismo showerhead that changes colour, blue when cold and red when hot, gadget but wise, this I rather liked. Good if you have children with you on your holiday, just shame they would spoil it as this place needs to be lied back and enjoyed. Ample cupboard space to hide toiletries and a shelf for your false teeth! Quirky little kitchen where everything had its place, condiments provided, two hob electric cooker, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, sandwich toaster, cutlery, pots and pans, everyday essentails under the sink, iron and ironing board. TV in bedroom with DVD player and plenty to watch also stereo in the lounge with plenty of CD's. Air conditioning with timer, fan & turbo boost facility (now an optional extra) worked a treat on those hot nights. Oh! & Thank you! for the complimentary Welcome bottle of wine & water with some bread & milk, nice touch. Would definately return one day even though I did leave some smalls in the laundry basket (how embarrassing) Cheers to a good life!!! x
