The Apartments are just off the Main Street with a large car park across the road.
The reception was closed when we arrived but the lady who owns them let us into our room which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
There was a bedroom with a double bed and 2 single beds in the main room. It had a balcony with a table and chairs and was well stocked with glasses and cutlery. There was also a kettle, hairdryer and cork screw
I would certainly return to these apartments.

We stayed at stellas for 4 nights.
We arrived early hours in morning due to delays.
The host waited up for us and was very friendly. Giving us a lovely welcome.
Nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was clean with views overlooking spinnalonga.
On the last day we were allowed to stay in the room all day at no extra cost as our flight was late that night.
Would recommend a stay here.
Caring hospitable family and great location in centre of village.
Would definitly stay here again.
Thank you xx

Lovely quiet little village opposite Spinolonga so very short boat trip away. Mini supermarket not very good but better range of products only 3km away in Elounda. Stella very welcoming and helpful and friendly. Nice clean apartment and site.

I can't express how happy I was to find this gem. We were visiting from the other side of the island, and wanted to visit Vai Beach and Agio Nikolaos. Elounda is quite expensive and we were traveling with a group of girls who simply wanted to shower, have a nice dinner and move on to our next beach the following morning. Stella and her daughter were lovely. Our 2-part room had clean everything, adorable Greek interior, air conditioning, wifi and she was an excellent hostess. And the budget was unbeatable - the little terrace/porch was perfect as well. Close to the ocean, village - everything. We'll be back!

I did read the book The Island about the lepper colony on Spinalonga in Crete. The story starts and ends in Plaka a little village near Elounda. It is of course very tourisrtic but in the evening when all the tourists are gone the rest and calm come over the village and you can enjoy a nice meal in the many restaurants around.
The Stella Mare Appartments are OK, small bedroom, small bathroom but big shower if you compare with the traditional Cretan showercabins. Little sitting room with ktchenette, small terrace.
Airco, fridge , watercooker, some pots and pans ....
Very nice for one or two nights.
