About This Listing
When you watch the sunset and you are lying down on the beach in Falassarna, Balos or Elafonisi it’s very hard to leave such a fabulous place. But if a sweet and charming home is waiting for you, it is not that hard!

I, my husband George and our little daughter are ready to welcome and help you. We will surprise you with our olive oil, wine and honey and when it is possible with fruits and vegetables (depending on the season). You will love our country, the clean and hot sea, the excellent food, the hospitality, the people, the wildness of the mountains. You will feel days and nights of total relaxation allowing you to escape from the daily life and to feel the real cretan life.
In general, we live in a complex that includes two apartments and our house on the basement, and six studios on the first floor, all of them fully furnished and autonomous. During your stay we provide you with everything you need to prepare your breakfast and your meals and also A/C, Wi-Fi, BBQ and parking space. Our place is located at a famous for its natural beauty, part of the western Crete, at Kissamos, next to the amazing golf of Kissamos, at Mavros Molos Beach.
As soon as you arrive to the island by boat or airplane and even before you step your foot at the island you get to breath a different air. Many truly believe that Crete is still one of the most incredible wonders of the nature. In fact, the island in combination with the quality of the beach and sea and also the cretan hospitality make people want to come again and again because every visit isn’t enough. In case of the Kissamos area the beauty of the nature, sea and beach, the history and the Mediterranean tasty food worth everything!
Crete is the largest Greek island retaining its own local cultural traits (dialect, poetry and music). Kissamos area combines perfectly clear turquoise waters, powders and beaches, small mysterious beaches to be isolated and lay beneath the perfect sun, amazing colours all around. Kissamos is a perfect strategic place and convenient country to stay because it gives you the opportunity to visit dreamy cretan beaches such as Balos, Falassarna, Elafonisi and unique natural beauties such as Samaria Gorge, while being familiar with one of the most ancient civilizations and healthiest food.
In a few words Crete means:
Eight thousand years of history!!! It is the centre of the Minoan civilization, the earliest high-level civilization in Europe, comprising the first palaces in Europe, the land of Ikaros and Minos, the home of El Greco, Kazantzakis and Venizelos. Crete is located between East, West and South, is full of olive trees, orange groves and vineyards. Crete has famous palm forests (at Vai and Preveli) and also cedar forests (at Gavdos and Chryssi). It’s an island full of contrasts, the paradise for those who love isolated beaches. Crete is romantic, with its sea, rocks and gleaming plateaus, scented with wild fennel and fresh basil... CRETE has everything!
We stayed at Elina's apartment for 3 nights, and it was lovely. The room is cleaned every day, Elina and her husband are very nice and welcoming. It's a few minutes walk to a nice beach. We had a lovely time there and it's worth the price. We recommend this place.
Town hopping around Crete so only stayed one night. I Chose this property because of the write up on Breakfast and I wasn't disappointed. You pay extra €8 for it but it was amazing with local produce, greek yogurt with local honey and walnuts fresh orange juice and fruitsalad local tomato pesto and soft cheese, toasted ham & cheese sandwich a perfectly fried egg in olive oil, cakes, bread, coffee and a cretan marmalade great experience of local produce. I also enjoyed home grown tomates and local olive oil on arrival. The apartment is modern very clean close to beach and bus stop. I was very kindly picked up at the bus stop although its only a 5 min walk the property has no number and would have been hard to find. Thank you for a memorable stay.
Wow, no words, such a lovely place that you can sens that they thought about every little thing!
The place is amazing the bed is even more, such a good sleep we had there.. Location is perfect 15 meters from the beach, great traditional restaurant next to the place and a beautiful garden of the place, don't hesitate about this place its perfect!
We booked the studio because of the good recommendations and it was truely nice. Clean and very friendly. Very good communication before. It's a good starting point to explore the beautyful beaches of the westside.
We had a lovely stay at Elina and George's place.
The apartment was very clean and well furnished.

About the Host, Elina
Hello! I am Elina from Crete. Me and my family are looking for unique places to go around during our holidays. I am sure you are doing the same and I can help you spend the most unforgettable and relaxing days in our place. You can ask our help to plan the best holidays!
In our daily life we are dealing with flowers and plants as George is an agriculturalist and me with humans, especially those with dementia problems, as part of my work as a psychologist.
But above all these, we are parents of a little precious, for us, child. She is 18 months and her name means hope.
