  • We had a fantastic time at Elenas apartment. It is very clean, comfortable and completely furnished. At our arrival Elena offered us coffee, fruits and rakias well as fresh flowers on the kitchen table.The view above the bay is just magnificent, so the days started perfectly. We are sure, one day we will return to this lovely place on earth again. Elena, thank you so much!

  • I have stayed with 8 different hosts in 4 different countries over the past 16 months and this was the BEST! Elena was fantastic, the place is beyond comfortable and the view from the terrace is exquisite. The sunrise over the mountain ridge shining onto the bay starts the day off just right. Elena had wine, nuts, coffee, tea, butter, jam, etc in the apartment, all the little comforts for the bathroom, the washing machine was great and she also loves to travel, providing lots of info and tips. Perhaps best of all, she is a good hearted and solid person, very interesting to talk to. Highly recommend.

  • I stayed in Villa AMALIA, Miabello gulf view with my husband for our honeymoon. We had a great time. The apartment is spacious and clean. The shower was a little tricky to get in and out of, but once we got used to it, it was ok. Elena and her son were such sweet hosts. They made themselves available to answer any questions we had and give us directions, etc. We had some problems getting our luggage from the airline and Elena and her family were so kind in letting us use their phone and giving us advice about how to handle the situation even very early in the morning and very late at night. She even gave us little cakes and fruit for breakfast. It was like staying with family friends. I definitely recommend staying with Elena in either of her apartments. Thank you for everything, Elena! :D

  • We stayed at Elena's appartment for five weeks. It is an excellent spot for vacation with children - quite place, sea within 5 minutes walk from the house, olive farm with animals (10 minutes walk), wonderful beach and comfortable, SUPER clean appartment. Elena is a wonderful host, she took great care of us and gave us a ride whenever was needed. I highly recommend Elena and looking forward to coming back!

  • We stayed at Villa Amalia for a whole July of 2013. It was fantastic: great view at gulf of Mirabello, 5 minutes to the Havania beach, roomy apartments and of course very very hospitable Elena and her family. She has met us in first day with fruits and raki :) and told us all about Agios Nikolaos also Lassitti sights. Thank you Elena for your big care after my daughter Alisa and my wife when I had departure to Moscow after two weeks.
    P.S. It was our first trip to rented apartments. Before this we tripped only in Hotels. But after Villa Amalia I will trip only via rented apartments due to great service and help from Elena.
    I wish we will visited again Villa Amalia on next summer.

  • We stayed there during June 2013 and had by far the greatest holiday by the sea in our lifes. As the other reviewers mentioned, Elena and her family take excellent care of their guests. The place is very simple (even basic) but spacious and tidy. We loved the balcony and tried to have all of our meals there as the sea view is terrific!

    Any issues we had we taken care of and resolved quickly. If you're travelling with a little child, it's a good idea to rent a car as the nearest minimarket is about 500m away, as well as the best beach in the area that we found for our little guy. As we didn't rent a car for the last 2 weeks of our stay, Mimi and Elena were very kind in taking turns to drive us to do our shoppings and to Agios Nikolaos for a walk. And, despite of being very busy at work, Elena took us to some lovely places and beaches nearby.

    I liked the full-sized fridge with a freezer, a well-stocked kitchen (Elena even provided us with a blender, a steamer, a juicer).

    Elena speakes very good English and the communication was excellent (and we've found our way with Mimi, too). Thank you, Elena, Mimi and Manos!

  • We stayed at Villa Amalia for a month. Elena was a generous, caring host who took excellent care of us. She made helpful suggestions as to what to do. She got us involved with a local hiking group for a marvellous hike through a mountain forest, and went with us on a fantastic gorge hike. Elena was willing to drive us into town for groceries when we needed them and really treated us as part of the family. The villa is a short walk from beautiful Havana beach, and even in November we got to spend many gorgeous days swimming and sunbathing. The apartment was clean and spacious...our favorite part was the beautiful terrace looking out at Mirabello Bay. We enjoyed our breakfast there each morning and spent many peaceful hours watching the sea and the life of the surrounding community. Elena takes pride in the villa and we thank her for all her efforts in helping make our holiday in Crete so outstanding.

  • Very sweety and nice holidays. Amalia and her family are perfect householders. They paid attention to our holidays. When we arrived, we found fruit, milk, water, orange juice and cake in the fridge.
    The apartmenti is very big for a couple like us. Two rooms with 4 beds. A big fridge and a big balcony with amazing view on Mirabello gulf.
    The sea was close (about 5 minutes by car). We falled in love with the bay and the sea very close to the city of Agios Nikolaos.
    There's a possibility to go by foot, but we prefer to go by car.
    Very nice experience.

  • Elena was the perfect host of all times: she waited for us until 1 am -our flight arrived late- and welcomed us with a bowl of fresh fruit, raki (crete's typical drink), and coffee, milk and pastries, &marmalades for the following day's breakfast.
    The house is spacious and very tidy and nice. We loved the patio, where we spend some nights looking at the gorgeous view of the bay. A dream come true!
    Elena had also put fresh flowers all over, so we really felt at home.
    We will definitely come back soon!
