A first class holiday for all the family

  • 5 of 5

The information we were sent before arriving looked too good to be true! However when we arrived at the Villa it was clear that everything was in fact even better, if possible, than the information we had been given.

Right from the start when Mandy and Tony met us in the early hours of the morning at stupid o'clock, and didn't rush explaining the layout of the villa and how everything worked plus the very welcome "welcome pack" which removed any immediate need to worry about shopping first thing the next day. This set us up for what was to remain as a thoroughly relaxing 2 week stay for us all and well suiting all ages from late sixties to 18 months.

The property has everything anyone could want with excellent rooms, first class pool and all the facilities you could hope for. This together with Mandy and Tony being so helpful and available to help with advice when needed and the unsurpassed location with the wonderful views made this by far the best villa holiday we have ever experienced.

We all look forward to the day we will be able to return to what can only be described as paradise.

Thank you so much Mandy and Tony from John and Jill (grandparents), James, Dave, Phil, Josh and Katie (sons and daughter-in-law) plus grandson Joel. xxxxxxx

Party of 5 adults

This is an ideal property for those who want luxury, views to die for and a quiet location. Situated well above the small port of Elounda and in easy reach of beaches, bars and airport. Mandy & Tony provided all we needed and were on hand to answer all our questions. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to families and groups of adults and will certainly be returning.

There were 5 of us and we enjoyed barbequeing and eating outside. The pool was great fun at the end of a day at the beach. Views were spectacular. House is very private.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ellie in Elounda was by far the best place we have stayed .From

the greeting we received from Mandy and Tony to the beautiful villa

which had everything you could possibly want.The photos of the villa are

exactly what you get and more.The only down side was you need to stay

longer just to appreciate it.

My family and I traveled to many destinations across the world, but the experience we got staying at the villa Ellie in Greece this summer was unbelievable! From the moment of our arrival to the villa our minds were blown away! The villa is located at the very top of the mountain; therefore the view that you get is spectacular. You get to see the most beautiful sunsets overlooking at the mountains and the waterfront; and even more breathtaking starry skies and the view of the night city. The villa seems to be secluded from every other house located nearby, making this experience seem very private.

The villa is very spacious. Although we had a crowd of 6 people (all different ages and interests), there was room for everybody, and a quite place to “escape” if needed. The villa has two big terraces and a big pool area, making this a perfect vacation spot for those who enjoy spending their vacation relaxing outside, and not go sightseeing every day. For those that enjoy sightseeing, the villa was in a good proximity to various attractions. There are also a variety of beaches near the villa, so we had no problem getting around (we had two rental car).

The Inside the house id very equipped, and has all the things that you can imagine (starting from hair driers, and irons, ending with detergent). We were especially pleasantly surprised with how well equipped the kitchen is. There is plenty of dining locations in the house- a dining room/living room inside the house, a beautiful balcony terrace outside the house, and a nice brick stone oven on the upper level terrace. All three dining areas have beautiful views!

Every bedroom is connected to the main balcony, therefore you wake up to a spectacular view every morning. The rooms were spacious, and with a lot of storage space. The beds were very comfortable.

The owners of the house are very pleasant and helpful. They were always there to help with any questions we might have had. Overall, I would grade our stay as an A++. Would definitely come back again, and recommend to all my friends.

Thank you so much Mandy and Tony! ☺
