We were booked into the Elounda apartments but a couple of days before departure we were informed that the accomodation had been double booked and we would be staying one week at another property and then transferred to the originally booked apartment. We weren't happy but could not find other accomodation so off we went. We arrived in Elounda at 1:30 am and the transfer driver told us to get out at the church. We refused and then the driver had a convoluted discussion with the taxi drivers nearby and ten minutes late the owner/manager drove up and took us in his car to Leonidas House. He then at 2 am told us that he had mixed up the bookings and that we would stay in this house for four nights, then transfer to another property for three nights and then the apartments for the next three! We weren't happy but resigned ourselves to it. Leonidas House is in Mavrikiano - a lovely spot. The house is well equipped but definitely not suitable for anyone with mobility problems - steep stone stairs lead to the bedroom upstairs. We enjoyed our four nights and then prepared ourselves for the next move only to be told that the Elounda apartment was now available. Back in the owner's car again! The Elounda apartments are well situated in the town. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom and bedrooms are of a good size. The only downside is that there is no balcony. We enjoyed our stay and the moves didn't really inconvenience us. The owner is a lovely guy of nearly eighty and I think he is just trying to keep his occupancy at a maximum. However we also saw the same thing happen to two other couples booked into his accomodation when we were there for ten days. So if you want typically Greek accomodation and are prepared to be flexible then this is the accomodation for you!

Room Tip: Make sure you book a sea view if you opt for an apartment.

Started badly as we were dropped off at 12 midnight in Elounda and no-one picked us up to take us to the house as had been arranged. However we were rescued by some wonderful Greeks who found out where the house was and arranged for us to be transported there.

It was worth the bad start. The house is amazing. So many traditional and quirky features with the most amazing view from the balcony. The outside kitchen is a great place as it has a fridge etc and it tempted us to make two meals there something we never do on holiday. The house has the biggest key we have ever seen and we showed it off to everyone we met. The village is lovely and the people warm and friendly. The house is directly opposite The Hope restaurant which has the fattest cat we've ever seen in Greece.

In the description it says it is not suitable for people with mobility problems and if you haven't got a car this is true because it is quite a walk from the centre of Elounda with a couple of steep inclines but it is so worth the effort.

So glad that we chose this accommodation and would recommend it to anyone who likes a property with history and tradition.

A world famous over done restoration of a 4000 yr old Minoan palace. The site is overcrowded, tricky to navigate around, very hot with little shelter, and confusing without a guide. Footing can be treacherous and difficult for the unfit or the elderly. More valuable by far is a visit to the wonderful museum in Heraklion.

Although we had a confirmed booking from www.booking.com the owner had double booked the Almond Tree resulting in us not haveing a place to stay. Our vacaction was ruined!
Be carefull, although you will get a confirmation that you have booked the villa, nothing is guaranteed as the owner is a crook and books it several times on the same dates.
