Villa Zoe Maria is simply stunning. It was spotlessly clean, modern throughout and perfect in every way………even down to the freshly conditioned bedding and towels which smelt just like home! The patio area is well presented which allows you to enjoy the outdoor living in the sunshine all day. The location is ideal for shopping, the beach, eating out and the cocktail bars, which we tried a few! There were a number of restaurants recommended to us, many of which knew Sue & Steve very well and they made us feel extremely welcome including the odd free desert!! The locals are extremely friendly and they put us to shame as they speak perfect English. A big thank you to Rose & Fred for looking after us during our stay and a huge thank you to Sue for making the booking process pain free and also giving us perfect weather in the middle of October! Thank you Sue for everything, we will be back! Richard & Justine

The house is so cute, it's like something from a fairy tale. The views from the terrace are fantastic. Hanging out in Elounda was great fun. There's a beach right at the bottom of the hill and the town has loads of great places to eat and drink. The next town over is also lovely and not too far a walk (or a quick bus ride). We had a great time, I'd highly recommend it!

They organised the taxi for us and we followed them to the villa. Yiannis showed us round the property and poured us a drink and then Eva brought round a home cooked (and very welcome after a long journey) meal. The groceries provided were very welcome too as it gave us time to sus out the local shops. During our stay there were a couple of emails to make sure we knew all we needed to about the area and to inform us of when the cleaning day/time was. When Yiannis came round on cleaning day he noticed that we had finished the wonderful cake and organised another to be baked and brought round by Eva's mother. Fresh towels were provided. I loved swimming in the pool every day even though some would consider it a little on the cold side at the end of October. We chose not to hire a car although on reflection I think I probably would in the same situation again. We wanted a chilled out week of doing not very much so we didnt really go anywhere. We did go on the little train ride which was An interesting morning. I'm not sure i would be too keen on it in the middle of summer! At the end of the trip Yiannis organised the taxi back to the airport for us and came round for a last drink. Thank you for the gifts, they were a lovely surprise.
