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!
This is the place we have invested our love to nature and welcome everyone who wants to stay. Most of our guests wish they could stay more. They find our place nice and they love our special decoration we ‘ve put to it, making an ideal place for you that will welcome and serve your holiday needs. We give a lot effort to offer you clean, comfort and relaxing spaces inside the rooms and at the outside environment. Here you FEEL LIKE REAL HOME.
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 were greeted with fresh tomatoes, homemade olive oil and honey. The apartment was perfect, very clean, comfortable and the hosts were lovely. We were able to pay a little extra for a Cretan breakfast which was homemade and fantastic! We highly recommend this place!
We had such an amazing time! Elina and her husband recommended restaurants to eat at and a trip to Balos Lagoon. The restaurants were very good and the trip to Balos Lagoon was absolutely amazing! I can't wait to come back and stay here again. The location is perfect! Very close to the beach, restaurants and stores. They even arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and to Take us to the port. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Unfortunately we were there for only 1 night. We arrived from Elafornissi at around 6pm and George gave us the best tip of a great beach in Falassarna! We had an awesome evening there..
The room was fresher then most of the hotels I've been at - and I travel a lot...
Can only recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Elina & George
We had a brilliant week at Elina and Yorgos place. They are great hosts. We really loved the apartment and the little garden. Our son (18 months old) had great time playing with their little daughter and exploring the garden. The apartment has all you need including a small kitchen area and is very clean and comfortable. There is a very good restaurant within two mintues walk (ask Elina or Yorgos). We hope to come back soon.
The hotel is conveniently located, on the edge of Kissamos in separation from the hustle and bustle, but it has everything you need near the sea 100 meters, the mountain starts behind the hotel, 30 meters there is a mini market, a large supermarket Mavronakis 200-300 meters and the most important One of the best, or even without exaggeration the best taverna in Kissamos stelios & katina. With good service, good food and plenty of choice on the menu. Unfortunately pictures do not convey all the charm, comfort and cleanliness of the hotel, in reality it is much lighter, more comfortable and more spacious better. The bathroom is among other things a hairdryer, which is nice, hot water heater appears after turning the tap almost immediately, and after 10-15 minutes you can take a shower at least an hour, which I am personally very happy. The room has a large dining table and enough dishes to host a dinner party for at least 10-15 people, also in the kitchen has a fridge and a medium-sized plate for three plates (one for coffee) and an oven. So, as we relaxed with a child especially for us spread a carpet in the room, provided a playpen, pillows, blankets and toys. Each room has air conditioning in the master bedroom has a built-in closet, which will fit any luggage and wardrobe. The room has a small balcony with a sofa and two armchairs. Elina is very hospitable and welcoming host responsive to any questions or requests. We really enjoyed the Arodamos, next time when we Kissamos we again plan to stop at Arodamos.
Elina & Gorgi where fantastic hosts.. not only did we receive some great tasting raki and olive oil upon our arrival but the night before we left we where invited along with some other guests to have dinner with their family .. they cooked a huge feast for us including bbq'd meat, salads and homemade cretan specialties and of course lots of drink.. some of which was a lovely red wine made by Gorgi's father.. on top of all this the apartment was located in a very good spot to reach all the best bits of west crete.. balos, elafonisi, falasarna as well as various monastery's and places of historical interest.. crete is a wild and beautiful island and their set of apartments are a great way to experience it!

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.
