Very good apartment! Friendly hosts that made us feel at home right away. Especially because the fridge was already filled with cold water, fruits and basic breakfast items upon arrival. Thank you Elena and family! Apartment is really clean and spacious. Good kitchen items and a good washing machine. Good access to the nearby beach, quiet location, but very close the beautiful town of Agios Nikolaus. Highly recommended!
L'appartement de Helena est judicieusement situé à l'écart du tumulte de Agios mais très rapidement accessible, 4 à 5 minutes en voiture . S'il y a quelques voitures de passage la nuit en contrebas et les traditionnels chats grecs qui draguent, la vue de la cote le matin au lever sur la terrasse est superbe. L'accueil de Helena avec son ouzo et ses fruits de saison est d'une gentillesse peu commune. Quelques bebetes à exterminer , mais l'endroit est parfait pour une découverte du côté est de la crête. Un agréable séjour.
Elena welcomed us at her beatiful home with relevant groceries ready fo us so we dont have to rush to a supermarket, gave us fresh fruit fron her garden, and even offered to help us with luggage, she is really nice! Enjoyed our stay!!!!
Elena and her family are truly marvelous hosts. They went well out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, and then some. The apartment is very comfortable with a delightful patio. Elena provides a very high level of service for a rental of this type. Beyond what we expected after 8 weeks travelling through Europe.
We particularly enjoyed the windows and the lovely views. A gorgeous place to wake up. kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed many meals cooked with fresh, local ingredients. A trip to the market in Agia Nikolaos on Wednesday is highly recommended. Even in November, there were enough warm sunny days to sit outside and enjoy the sun., and to swim in the ocean. The location is ideal with easy access to the Agia Nikolaos and Elounda. Lots of wonderful beaches very close by.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villa Amalia and hope to return some day.
The apartment was nice and well situated, about 5 / 10 minutes by car from the center of Aghios Nikolaos.
It has a garden and it's very nice to take the breakfast in the sun, with the visit of the family's cats.
The bed room is spacious and confortable. The wifi works very well.
The road next to the apartment can be a problem because it could be noisy sometimes, but i used to that, so that was not a problem for me.
I recommend this apartment.
Also, I would like to recommend a nice restaurant typical from Crete to eat at less than 10 minutes from the apartment :
Avli Taverna - Ouzeri
12, Prigipos Georgiou str.
Elena and her husband are the best hosts you can imagine. They gave us such a warm welcome and made our stay in Ag. Nikolaos very special. Elena used to say "whenever I can help, I will help"... and she truly did. We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, cosy and well located place with its beautiful terrace and wonderful view. We can highly recommend this apartment and would come back anytime. Thank you, Elena!!!
Opening our bedroom window on the first day to the view over the bay was truly wonderful.
Elena and her son were very helpful and were happy to get up early in the morning to let us in (4am).
The flat was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked very well.
I'd recommend this place to anyone interested in discovering Crete. We were well placed to explore almost all of the island and being only a short walk from the beach or short drive from Agios Nikolaos meant you didn't feel isolated but it was peaceful and very calm.
