Fabulous location, not easy to find (minimal signage typical of Greece). Constructed of beautiful building materials. Water system is on a well so it is not always reliable. Had trouble with booking arrangements, booked and paid for one accomodation and put in a different one. Proprietor made good on the sacrifice we took which was wonderful.
Used a different booking website than Trip Advisor and the description wasn't clear that we were renting a room in a house with common areas of the kitchen and living room shared with other renters. The actual place was nice and location ideal for Elafonissi but on the other website it wasn't advertised as it actually is.
