Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Eva & Yiannis,

We had a wonderful time in Gouves, and Eva's cottage was the perfect location for our stay.

Your hospitality was greatly appreciated and we look forward to returning to Crete at some point in the future.

Many thanks for all that you prepared and provided, we had a marvelous experience and a holiday that we will never forget.

Best wishes,

Clayton, Louise, Callum & Miranda.

ROMANTIC EVAS COTTAGE... Luxurious & Private with HEATED POOL !!!
average rating of 5.0 based on 47 reviews

Very well equipped, clean and conveniently located for North Eastern areas of Crete.

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 6 adults, arrived late on our flight from Uk. Yiannis was waiting for us, along with a hire car rep, who equipped us with 2 hire cars, with absolutely no fuss or requests for extras.

Yiannis guided us from the airport to the villa and showed us around the villa, explaining some of the finer controls for water heating etc.

Within 30 minutes of our arrival we were presented with a huge array of Greek dishes, each very welcome following our extended journey. In addition to the meal, the fridge was stocked with assorted foodstuff, including beer, allowing us to do our supermarket shopping at leisure.

Located within walking distance from the villa are a number of supermarkets, from small to quite large, which includes a very good butcher and extensive deli. Bread and cakes are available from 2 bakeries.

The weather during our stay was quite warm so we made extensive use of the swimming pool and occasional use of air conditioning. We did make use of the barbecue, dining also fresco whenever we ate at the villa. A well equipped kitchen made preparing a meal for 6 adults quite straightforward.

As other guests have repeatedly stated in their reviews, the outstanding feature of this villa is not so much the fabric of the villa, but the hospitality and welcome from Yiannis and Eva and Eva's parents who live next door (very discreetly)

Good night's out can be had at Spyros , in Old Gouvres ( they will provide transport in a mini bus). Island restaurant, try the chocolate sphere and the Island by the Sea restaurant. There are other smaller taverna restaurants dotted along the road down to the beach. Try them, you will be amazed, not just at the quality of the food and the price, but more importantly, the friendliness of the people.

Awesome house, garden and host!

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at the beautiful house of eva and ioannis. everything was perfect! clean, modern, big, beautiful pool and garden, close to town and airport. the food made of the very gentle hosts was delicious, the fridge filled with everything we needed for the first days, and the recommendations for journeys perfect!

just e wonderful holiday! thank you!

only one thing is to mention, the house lays in the area of the landing zone from the airport. so you might hear the planes arriving. this was no problem for us but for sensitive people it may be one.

Lovely hosts lovely villa!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the moment we were collected from the airport Yannis and Eva looked after us. The villa is large, got plenty of space and superb modern facilities. Is a great location for going to the beach, taking a drive out and only around 15 minutes from the airport.

The hosts looked after us so well, it was amazing they responded instantly to any requests, even offered to cook us a meal on two occasions and even cook for our poorly boy! Simply amazing loved the guys who owned it. Will be back again!

It was amazing !

  • 5 of 5

the villa is very big, comfortable and very clean. the pool was also clean and has pool-toys and mattresses so we really enjoy it. when we arrived, the fridge was filled with water bottles, food , fruits and vegetables, milk and more. the kitchen is well accessorized: oven, microwave, dishwasher... enough cleaning materials for all purposes. different kinds of coffee and tea. Every other day the villa is cleaned. the rooms are very comfortable. the hosts are extremely nice and are available for every question or advice.

they made dinner for us all on the first day of our arrival and again after a few days. they even gave us a home-made jam to take home with us, which was extremely nice of them. we enjoyed our staying and recommend it to all.

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! House is very clean and comfortable and the family are very kind and welcoming, providing lots of extra touches to make the holiday special. Eva cooked wonderful food for our first evening including a beautiful cake!

We spent the first week of our holiday in the family's other property near Chania. We absolutely loved Crete and can't wait to return!
