VILLA HELLIOS, ELOUNDA, EAST CRETE. PRIVATE POOL, NEAR BEACH AND SHOPS, SEA VIEW

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Elounda - HELLIOS

Luxury villa with incredible views over the Elounda bay.

We have done our very best to make this lovely Cretan house YOUR home for the holidays.

Villa Hellios, is a brand new luxury villa, built to fit perfectly between the gorgeous countryside and the breathtaking views over Elounda bay. Set in Mavrikiano, a typical village, 2 min from Elounda and its blue flag beaches, you will definitely enjoy the low key, cool pace of life there.

Everything has been done to make our guests happy and to offer them 'hassle free' holidays from day one! 'Full fridge' on arrival, Internet access, Flat screen TV + satellite + DVD players in every rooms, storage space, leather sofas sitting 5, fully equipped kitchen ,sunbeds, garden set with BBQ. You'll love swimming at all time in your private pool (21 m2) enjoy lazy afternoons on the terrace, have breakfast in bed watching sunrise from your bay-window,nap as long as you want in the garden, on the swing, have a romantic dinner 'al fresco' watching the shimmering lights of Elounda at night. Welcome!

ACCESS and parking: dear guests, as many properties in Elounda, our villa is built on top of a steep street. Please keep this mind when you will rent a car. Small cars are always easier to use in this area, like Suzuki 4X4 or any of these kinds. You will realise that our lovely Greek neighbours have not the same conception of parking than us. Big cars, will have trouble accessing the narrow streets of Aghios, and are too heavy to go up steep streets and hills.

You have your own private parking space in front of the house, but getting to the house will be much easier if you rent a smaller car. 5 years of experience taught me well!!!

VILLA HELLIOS

  • 5 out of 5
We had a very relaxing stay at Villa Hellios. The views were amazing - as we'd expected from the photos.
We were impressed by the welcome even though our flight had been delayed and we arrived in the early hours of the morning. The villa is well appointed and thoughtfully furnished and we were made to feel at home. It's a short walk into Elounda and the harbour but a quite a steep hill for the last hundred metres or so on the return journey - good for working off those extra calories after dinner.
I'd definitely recommend this property to friends.

A GORGEOUS BIJOUX VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful compact bijoux villa with stunning views and gorgeous pool and terrace area. It is tucked away and sufficiently private but you are still able to see what's going on in the busy little harbour below. There is a wide choice of friendly well priced restaurants within walking distance and the neighbouring locals are very friendly. The Bluebay Crete Management organised a meet and greet and could be contacted if needed. We had a wonderful week here and will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

THE PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Absolutely stunning Villa. We travelled in November - a little later than normal - and it was therefore important to us to have a few home comforts. The Villa didn't disappoint. Beautifully appointed, lovely decor and very comfortable. Plenty of seating areas for eating, reading or sunbathing with sun or shade to suit from dawn until 4pm. Extremely comfortable bed - often hard to find in Greece. Loads of storage space and very well thought out rooms. Well equipped kitchen which had everything we needed to self-cater. Only one small comment - there were no soup/cereal bowls - but there were some lovely big cups which sufficed! We wouldn't normally need bowls in Greece but as cornflakes were provided in the welcome pack, we thought we may as well eat them!! Super views both front and back. Extremely quiet location. Central heating was used for a few of the evenings and was very effective. A real bonus for us was the internet access - a "must have" item when you run a small business - this was fast and worked on demand every time. The location itself was great and provided a good base for exploring the local area. Centre of Elounda is only 10 minutes walk away and the town has every facility, plus some lovely back-streets, hill walks and beaches within a reasonable distance. You could easily manage without a car, but the slope up to the village wouldn't suit everyone. One tiny point which didn't affect us but might affect the less agile and is worth knowing is that there is no hand-rail on the stairs. We would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone and hope to return in future years.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments! Come back anytime!
We are happy that our guests can now enjoy the internet connexion, as it was really something they were asking for...now its done!
About the stairs we will definetely think about it,although its our first comment on that subject, but, it can greatly improve the stay of many guests.
Thank you Liz and doug!

GOOD LOCATION BUT EXPENSIVE FOR AVERAGE VILLA

  • 3 out of 5
A contemporary 2 bed small villa. Great views of the sea. Villa is one of 4 and sits between 2 so outside terrace gets lots of shade. Windy on side of mountain so heat never an issue by the pool. 2 areas for outdoor dining and very close to Elounda restaurants and bars so easy to eat out. Whilst self catering, the cooking equipment/crockery was limited, so only basic meals could be prepared. No mirrors in the bedrooms so take your own if you need to do your hair. A lovely clean and well maintained villa but we were expecting more for the money we paid!

Owner's Response: Owner's Response: dear lisa
sorry you did not appreciate your stay...We take notes of your remarks about the basic cooking problems , as its has never been reported to us in 3 years. ( I still wonder what extras could have had been added to the kitchen to satisfy our hypothetic clientele of "gordon ramsay wanabees" . Yes there is no food processor or bread machine, but so far our guests did not ask for more. But we will definitely think about it.
About mirrors...Well, there is one huge mirror inside the wardrobe in every bedrooms placed "cleverly "so you can even do your hair sitting on your bed...maybe you missed that detail.
About shade...well, there is shade in september...more than in august but less that in april..Thats the beauty of seasons changing...
About the price , may I highlight the fact you were offer a deal with more than 300 euros off the usual price, and If you compare services offered in similar villas, you got : midweek clean, meet and great, starter pack for free. A substantial difference!
we do hope you will come back to crete again and wish you the best for the year to come
