"A great place to stay"

The villa was a delight to stay in, having looked on line before booking we expected the accommodation to be good, but when we got there it was even better than we had ever anticipated. Yannis met us at the airport and took us to the villa so we avoided the chance of getting lost. There was ample supplies of food and drink in the fridge and as we arrived late in the evening Yannis was kind enough to go and get us some supper from one of the local restaurants at no extra cost. We unfortunately could not take up the offer that Yannis and Eva made to cook us all a meal on the final evening because we had made prior arrangements, which typified the kind hospitality we received. The villa was very clean and spacious all 4 double rooms were very spacious and each room had a balcony. The villa had air conditioning in all the rooms and there was more than enough room to accommodate all eight of our party without us ever feeling that we needed more room or space if you wish to cook for yourself there is a very large modern kitchen and a BBQ outside. The villa is only a short distance away from the main tourist area and is only a short walk away from local shops and a bakery and many restaurants in the resort are just a 15 minute walk away. We would recommend this villa to all and would happily go there again. The pool was a little bit smaller than the picture shows on the brochure but was more than adequate for our needs. Staying here makes you feel that you are in the countryside when near the town and with the kind and not intrusive attentiveness of Yannis and Eva this is a great place to stay.

"Wonderful Villa and great Hosts"

We have had a great holiday at Evas Cottage. The house is absolutely stunning and immaculately clean. Yiannis met us at the airport gone midnight and was waiting for us with a hire car that he had arranged for us. They had prepared us meals and filled the fridge with necessities and also a lovely cake. We had teenagers and a toddler and they all loved the house. There were lots of toys for the little one and a safe area in the pool for him. The older ones enjoyed the pool area with loungers and made use of the gym. We were also prepared a lovely home cooked meal one evening with local Crete beer. The local restaurants a not far away but there a some lovely villages with many great restaurants a ten minute drive away. Thanks you for looking after us so well , we will definitely be back in the future. Peter Sara and Family

"Exceptional 5* Property"

Where do I start, Yiannis & Eva can only be described as the BEST HOLIDAY HOME OWNERS EVER!!! Our Family were met at the airport and taken to the villa, where we received home cooked food and plenty of other food items and drink to get our holiday started. The Villa is beautiful and to a high quality, it is safe & secure,it has a beautiful pool & garden and it's in such a great location to go off and explore the rest of the island. The Villa is exactly as described on line, everything about it was absolutely brilliant!! We met their lovely family who were at hand should we have needed them, Yiannis was also at hand to help with anything from hiring a car, booking taxi's, recommending bars & restaurants, he is just so helpful. Would highly recommend this villa to anyone, guaranteed you will have the best holiday ever!!! For those worried about the crisis in Greece - NO NEED TO WORRY, we were there when the referendum was on & spoke to many Greeks about the situation and clearly the Media have reported the crisis badly for tourists, it's absolutely fine and will not affect your holiday whatsoever. Take Euro's, just don't rely on your card too much as not everywhere takes cards but you can use it in some bars, shops and restaurants & certainly some of the ATM's! Yiannis and Eva thank you so much, we will definitely return!!! Oh and for anyone reading my review check out Yiannis' other property to rent on Homeaway in Chania, it's also fabulous!!

"this is more than home"

I would prefer not to advert Eva Cottage, as if you would know how great it is, we will have a very small chance to rent it next year as it's gonna be fully booked :( it was our second year, i would say now then Yannis and Eva and their parents are more then even our friends, they are like part of our family! it is hard to find more friendly and open people! absolutely perfect come back this year! more then you could even expect! Thanx a lot guys hope to see you 2015!

"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.
