    Right from the moment we booked we received great communication from Eva and Yiannis. Yiannis met us at the airport with a taxi minibus which he had arranged on our behalf and took us straight to the villa. First impressions were wow. After a welcoming shot of the obligatory raki he showed us all round the house and explained how everything worked. He then advised us that they had prepared a meal for us and after leaving us to settle in he returned with a lovely home prepared Greek meal complete with cake. It was delicious. The fridge had been stocked with just about everything we needed to start our holiday. Probably the best welcome we have received anywhere we have stayed. The next day we received an email with lots of useful information about the local area with suggestions of places to visit and restaurants. The villa itself is very well equipped with a great kitchen and lots of indoor and outdoor space to relax. The bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable. Our party being three couples having three bathrooms was great. The pool area was lovely to sit around and the pool itself was a good temperature so that we could use it every day. The outdoor kitchen area looked good but we didn't use it as we ate out every night. The villa is very well situated with supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants all within easy walking distance. Baraki became our favourite spot for a late night drink on our way home. Great atmosphere with good music. During our stay we celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary and having asked us where we were going to dine Yiannis arranged for the taverna to surprise us with a celebration cake. While we didn't meet Eva during our stay the service we received from Yiannis was absolutely brilliant and far exceeded anything we have experienced at any villa we have previously rented. Everything was first class and we would love to return to Evas Romantic Cottage in the future.

    A perfect family experience

    As other reviews have mentioned we had such a wonderful time at Eva’s romantic cottage. The hosts are rightly very proud of the lovely Villa they have created, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything needed to enjoy your stay. Our family loved the peace & quiet of the villa and felt very safe & relaxed during the entire stay. Bedrooms are spacious and comfy and the living areas are well equipped. We spent all of our time outside though, eating on the Veranda and utilising the outdoor bbq and pizza oven. Our hosts prepared an authentic Greek meal on the first night which was a fantastic welcoming present. The villa was also cleaned to a very high standard during our stay. They were also available for any questions whenever needed during our stay. Thank you again to Yianni & Eva, we will definitely be back :-)

    Excellent villa!

    On arrival at the airport we were met by Yiannis with the hire car he had arranged for us. He then took us to the villa where we found a fridge stocked with fresh fruit, bread, milk, water, butter, jams and beer. After showing us around Yiannis went next door to Eva's parents and came back with a hot meal plus a beautiful cake for breakfast! This was just the beginning of the treats produced during our week. The villa was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Although the heated pool was not as big as some, our two granddaughters, who are keen swimmers, loved it. Overall, Romantic Eva's Cottage is probably one of the best villas we have stayed in and Yiannis and Eva's hospitality is exceptional!

    Excellent - Great Holiday

    We can only underline what was already said by the previous guests: Yiannis & Eva are simply perfect hosts. They have organized a very affordable rental car without any pickup delay and we had a great Greek evening dinner prepared for us. For the other days just trust their restaurant recommendations. We stayed in mid- to end April with the taverns & shops awaking to life around the coast with most of them open. The heated pool was a benefit with a pool temperature that pleased everyone – even on slightly colder outside temperature days. So much more to say but all captured in the other reviews…this is a perfect place to explore Crete to the West, East & South. Our beach of choice not too far away was in Stalis (check out the “Nemo”). Thanks to our caring hosts! Hope to come back some day!

    Fantastic family holiday

    Eva’s cottage was just perfect and Yiannis and Eva were brilliant hosts. Any queries were answered really quickly and helped with car car hire and recommendations of places to visit. The villa was extremely well equipped, spacious and clean. We were welcomed at the airport by Yiannis and a tradional Greek meal was provided when we arrived at the villa. The pool was great fun for us all, especially as the weather was so hot. Would definitely recommend Eva’s cottage to family and friends.

    Wir, Familie 6 Personen, waren angenehm überrascht über die tolle Betreuung. Die Abholung durch ein Taxi am Flughafen hat super geklappt. Empfangen wurden wir mit einem Mittagessen und auch der Kühlschrank war schon mit dem notwendigsten bestückt. Es wurde zwischendurch das Haus gereinigt und die Betten bezogen und als Überraschung noch eine griechische Köstlichkeit bereitgestellt. Es hat uns gut gefallen, nur die Hähne auf den beiden Nachbargrundstücken wurden in der Beschreibung nicht erwähnt.

    Ein Traum von A - Z

    Hier stimmte einfach alles. Haus war genauso schön wie auf der Seite beschrieben und es war alles nötige vorhanden. Selbst Lebensmittel fürs Frühstück standen schon bereit. Darüber hinaus waren Eva und ihr Mann unglaublich Gastfreundlich. Wir wurden am Ankunftsabend noch super bewirtet und auch unseren Mietwagen hatten sie schon organisiert. Inklusive 3 Kindersitze! Danke für die schöne Zeit und die Herzliche Betreuung! Umgebung ist auch super, viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und Supermärkte direkt um die Ecke. Wir kommen sicher wieder! Perfekt für mehrere Familien mit Kindern!
