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!

Room Tip: Just ask for the best accommodations, she'll do what she can to help!

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.

Room Tip: Visit Spinalonga in the morning.If you want the restaurants on friday, saturday and sunday the island opposite is illuminated.

I stayed two nights at Stella Mare. It was perfectly located for a visit to Spinalonga. The family that run it are very welcoming, generous and helpful. The room was lovely, clean and well equipped with a lovely porch to sit at in the evening. Walking distance to tavernas, the harbour and bus stop. Highly recommend if you are looking for a more traditional alternative to all the resort style accommodation in the area.

We spent several nights here and were very comfortable. We liked having plenty of space including a shady terrace, which faced inland. The sunny balcony at the door had a view of the sea. The bathroom was I think new and very nice, and the kitchenette was fine for fixing breakfast or a drink.
My only issue was the two steps running the length of the main room which we thought a bit dangerous.
Very good value and very friendly owners. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor.
