We had a fabulous 7 night stay in this beautiful apartment. It was so well equipped, in a perfect location, and Panos was the ultimate host. The apartment is situated right in the middle of Almyrida and as close as you could possibly get to the sea. It had everything we needed and more and was extremely comfortable. Panos was there to greet us (and also to bid us farewell when it was time to leave) and left us with lots of essential provisions and some treats including a bottle of Raki and some of his delicious home produced Olive Oil to take home with us! He also remained in contact throughout the week, regularly checking that all was well. The view from the large sitting room window is amazing, but the icing on the cake is the amazing roof terrace where we spent a lot of our time soaking up the sun and admiring the stunning landscape. As well as sun beds and a lovely shaded seating area, there is a BBQ and kitchen so great for al fresco cooking and eating, and the outdoor shower helped to keep us cool. The apartment was spotlessly clean and we were left with spare sets of bed linen and towels. The location simply couldn't be better. The apartment is above the lovely Cafe Francoise who do great breakfasts and right next to a friendly water sports business where we hired a pedalo. Several small supermarkets are only minutes away on foot, selling everything we needed, and the local bakery was fabulous for fresh bread, delicious Greek pastries and iced coffees! Almyrida is lined with lots of lovely restaurants, we were really spoilt for choice, and most of them have first class views of the sea and even tables on the beach! The sea was so beautifully warm and clear and a real pleasure to swim in, and so safe for children as it remains shallow until quite far out. A bus runs regularly in to Chania and there is an excellent taxi business in the village, so we had no need to hire a car. Thank you Panos for a first class holiday - we can't wait to return!

Great views! Excellent pool!

We have just spent 2 excellent weeks at Stella Maris. The photos didn’t do justice to the views. Sometimes the photos are cleverly taken to give the impression of an amazing view, but then you arrive at the villa and the view is not as it seemed. Not so at Stella Maris. The view was amazing almost wherever you looked! We made great use of the pool. A great size, and plenty of outdoor furniture, and shade to be found somewhere at most times of day. There is a covered veranda upstairs too. We used this at the beginning but I’m unsure why we didn’t make more use of this area! Perhaps because this was the one place there was no view! The kitchen was well kitted out. We made good use of the fridge in the cellar for overflow, mainly to keep drinks cool. But of course whenever you wanted something it was always in the fridge in the cellar not in the kitchen!! If I was to fault the kitchen facilities it would be to say bigger dinner plates would have been better! But there was plenty of everything you might need in there. Also it would have been better to have long BBQ tongs as we found the BBQ was ferocious when it got windy. Lastly we loved the local beach. Great for snorkelling and only a few minutes walk from the house. We could not understand why we never saw anyone else walking!! Oh and we found a copy of Mamma Mia on the shelf. My 3 daughters thought this most fitting as we were on a Greek Island and of course we had to watch it! Thanks Sally. Always very helpful when I asked questions and very quick to respond.
