"Fantastic Hosts, Wonderful Place!"

I must start with our hosts, Eva & Yiannis, who went to great lengths to ensure that everything was perfect for our holiday in Crete. Yiannis was even good enough to meet us at the airport, despite ou… More

"Lovely villa, well located, fabulous hosts"

me and my husband stayed at this villa last September and enjoyed the true home from home experience of this lovely villa. Giannis and Eva and her family are fabulous hosts. We arrived to a full fridge of wonderful Crete delights - not to mention delicious honey raki!! Giannis met us at the airport which was just as well as the villa is hidden down a short lane.

The villa has everything you could wish for - good sized bedrooms, living room will all amenities, good strong wifi, satellite TV (no BBC1/2 ITV), music system, DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped - you really don't need to take anything with you apart from beach towels.

The villa is located across the busy main road from the village high street, literally a 5 minute walk. The high street has good restaurants, bars and shops. Follow the road all the way round and over the bridge to the sea front. If you don't even want to cross the road the taverna at the end of the lane (30 second walk) does fantastic steaks and the best gyros we ever had - and they do take away as well!!!

There is a small group of shops 2 minutes away which sell all the groceries, meat, veg and fruit you could need - everything is fresh and so tasty. The butcher will prepare your food any way you like. There is also a bakery across the road which bakes delicious cakes and pastries.

As the villa is on the main road (there is very little road noise) it is very easy to get all over the island. The hire car that comes with this villa was excellent value for money and we made good use of it.

The garden and pool were well maintained and there is a good variety of outdoor furniture - sun beds, umbrellas, awnings, patio table and chairs, bar b q, and there are swings for the kids (of all ages.....).

All in all this is a lovely villa, well located and your hosts will go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your holiday. They fully respect your privacy and nothing is too much trouble.

We would definitely recommend Eva's Cottage.

"highly recomended"

Wonderful staying here for a month! We came to Crete with our 1year-old daughter and it was deffinetly a right decision to stay in Eva's cottage! We had everything for a child - high chair, looooots of toys, stroller, carseat, a great room for a baby! It is close to supermarket, to the main shopping street. Near the house is a wonderful taverna, not touristic, but for the local people, that is why it was very tasty there! But the main thing was our neighborhood - Eva's parents live just opposite and there is a connecting door in the garden, they brought us fruits, cakes, some homemade greek dishes! Such a nice people! We totaly enjoyed our vacation, hope to come back here again!

"Modern, clean and comfortable - highly recommended."

Spent just over two weeks in Eva's Cottage, and after travelling to Crete for over 10yrs, I can say it was one of the best accommodations we have spent time in.
The villa itself is beautifully designed, and all the interiors are modern and very comfortable. The outside pool area and gardens are very spacious, peaceful and private. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed to prepare food, and included a lovely welcome pack from the owners containing food, drinks, snacks and local cretan specialities.

The villa and outside grounds are spotlessly clean, and there was additional cleaning services during our stay. It is very central, within walking distance to Gouves town centre and it's shops, bars and restaurants. It is also only a two minute walk to bus stops which service all over the island.

A wee bit further away is Spyros' taverna, in the old village of Gouves, It's a five minute car journey, although maybe a twenty minute walk uphill. However, Spyros will arrange free transport to bring you up and down – the food is delicious and definitely worth a try.

Nothing was too much for the owners in regards to helping make out stay enjoyable, and we even received some of their mother's home cooking and baking on a few occasions - Lovely.
