Why Steve chose Lassithi

This property was selected before the Villa itself had been built. there was a choice of several plots at the time but this plot stood out as the ideal spot to get wonderful views of the entire bay with further views across the Agean towards Sitia. The colour of the Sea literally changes every hour throughout the course of the day, it is a magical location and most perfect spot for a relaxing or adventurous holiday.

What makes this villa unique

The views, food and Cretan hospitality.

relaxing one week stay in nice villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed with 2 kids (16 and 13) for one week in Mavrikiano. Just up the hill you have a great view over the bay and especially in the morning it was great to see the sun rising above the mountains. We have made a few trips from Elounda to Spina Longa and to the Lassithi heights. Close to the villa there is great snorkling opportunities. Just 100 mtr down the hill there is a typical greek restaurant with local product. Reservation necessary because good ratings (trip advisor) has put it in the spotlights. Especially english tourists were regular visitors. Other restaurants were in the village (10 min walk). Especially the friendly greek people and the relaxed atmosphere ( you do not have to pay for your sunbeds on the beach for instance) and the relatively cheap food made it feel a great holiday.

The house itself, apart from the sights over the bay, was great: very clean, the pool not so big but great to dip in after we came home or just, when the morning was hot, before breakfast. The bedrooms had good quiet airco. My son slept on the couch in the living room so in fact all 3 of us has a separate bedroom.

Great villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with great views across the bay, morning, afternoon and at night. The villa is in a quiet location, but within a 10 to 15 minute downhill walk to Elounda centre. This is the perfect location in Mavrikiano village, which still retains a Greek feel and has three of the four top Elounda TripAdvisor restaraunts within a five minute walk. Everyone raves about the view from the Hope restaurant, but you get this (and a bit better) from the villa all day long. The sun was on the sunbathing terrace from dawn until 6:00pm during our stay in early September, but there is shade by the villa when needed. The pool isn't massive but was big enough for us and the resistance machine does allow swimming excercise when needed.

The service and advice from Steve through booking and from Ken on arrival was great and we had no issues with anything.

The walk back to the villa from town is uphill, but you can always stop and admire the view on the way.

We ate in a couple of times using the gas barbecue and ate out all of the other nights. We didn't find one bad restaurant in Elounda and there is a wide choice including a number of traditional Greek taverna restaurants which provide options for every day of the holiday.

A brilliant holiday and a lovely villa that we would recommend. We have looked to see if the villa is available same time next year as we would have loved to return, but it is already booked, so shows how popular the villa is.

Thanks Steve and team.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2017 and were so happy with our villa. It is perfectly proportioned, two good size bedrooms and bathrooms. The blinds were fabulous, no early morning sun to wake you!!! The pool is small but as its quite deep it felt bigger than it was, it really is big enough. The view is wonderful, there was a nice breeze so it never felt too hot. We visited Spinalonga which is definitely were a trip, also Chrissi beach which is a long journey but worth it when you get there, if you like playing in crystal clear waters. The walk down to the village is very steep, one part in particular, maybe tricky with a pushchair, but the restaurants are amazing when you get there, everyone was so nice and friendly, it felt like a tourist destination without all the tourists!! Perfect! We would return if we fancied a chill out week in Crete.

The perfect home base for your Crete experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Villia Mavrikiano for a long-delayed honeymoon! The hill up to the place is not for the faint of heart, and I was glad I upgraded my car rental to an automatic transmission. Ken was very responsive when we landed and there to meet us when we pulled up. A few things he forgot to mention: there are useful beach supplies (including a travel cooler) in the closet under the stairs and some extra house supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) in a closet in the first bedroom.

You will LOVE this villa! The views are absolutely spectacular, especially from the second floor. I have pictures of the sunrise that look better than a postcard. The place was clean and well-maintained. Good plumbing, hot water pressure, etc. We didn't cook much, but the kitchen seemed stocked with everything you might need.

Location is great. It's about a 10-minute walk down the hill into town (tons of restaurants, shops). The Hope and some other tavernas are even closer. From Elounda, you can quickly hop on the highway and get to some other great beaches & sights in no time.

There were definitely some mosquitos in the area, because we would find the bites on our legs in the morning. But we never felt them or saw them, so they weren't a nuisance. Had we actually used the spray we brought with us, we would have been fine.

Privacy: you've basically got it. On one side of the villa, there is nothing. On the other side, an adjoining wall separates you from your next-door neighbors. The wall is high enough that you will not see each other unless you walk right up to it. We felt comfortable in our bathing suits (and sometimes less) even when the neighbors were home.

Air conditioning is in the bedrooms only, so the villa could get a little toasty unless the windows and doors were open. Keeping the blinds drawn and the bedroom door closed helped a lot at night, and there was a great fan to help cool us off and add some white noise while we slept.

Don't expect much from the satellite TV, but then again, why come all this way to this beautiful villa to watch TV? The wifi worked great on the main floor, though the range is limited in the upstairs. Pool towels were provided, but we bought a beach towel there.

I'm sure a family would do very well staying here. For just two of us, it was a magically romantic experience, and we were SO sad to leave. Owners were professional and responsive throughout. Thanks again, Steve!

Owner's Response: Hi Nathan, So pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday, it sounds like you experienced much of what Crete and Elounda has to offer. The Mosquito's can be a little active at this time of the year so it's a good idea to bring repellent and use it of course :-) I'm pleased to hear the WiFi worked as this has recently been installed. Apologies for the TV, it's very hit and miss to have other channels installed and most people hardly put the TV on, apart from the odd look at BBC World or other local news. If you ever want to visit again be sure to let me know and I'll make sure we look after you. We are putting in a new corner sofa and sofa bed in the Lounge soon so we will be able to accommodate more people then. Kind Regards Steve
