“One of the best times in Greece”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at the Stone Cottage for 6 nights, and it was one of the best times we had in Greece. Mr Manolis takes a lot of pride in the property and it shows. It is well maintained and every day he takes care of the pool and garden.

Douliana is a quiet and beautiful village and we enjoy walking through it. The local taverna serves really yummy food and there is also a cafe and cafenio. The place has a very authentic feel and interacting with the locals made our stay extra special. In the morning fish and bread vans go through the village, which I bought some fish from once - with the help of the girl from the cafe where we were having breakfast.

The cottage itself has two levels and each level is rented out separately. There was a couple in the lower level for part of the time we were there, but it still felt private. The rooms were a good size apart from the loft which is probably better suited for children. However, we quite liked the loft so we were able to squeeze in up there. The whole place was clean and also had lots of areas for outdoor living, such as the balcony and pool area.

I really wished we could have stayed a bit longer as it's a very peaceful spot with lots of trees and bird life. I can definitely recommend it as a good place to have a holiday. Also, it's quite well positioned about 10 mins from the national road so you have easy access to the rest of the region.

“Ideal for family vacations”
Reviewed 15 February 2016 for a stay in August 2015

If you wish relaxed family vacations, you are on the right spot. We had great time. Children loved the free bikes and we loved the safe alleys. In general, Manolis House is as the description. Quiet and easy going.

“Unique traditional Cretan accomodation”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I stayed 3 days with my girlfriend, wanted to be somewhere quiet. We are most satisfied with this cottage, how clean it was and the staff was excellent! Although it was off the beaten track, in a quiet area, we enjoyed walking in nearby paths, cycling, and observing the flaura and fauna of Crete. Will definitely come back to stay another time, its an excellent getaway in nature! Highly recomended!

Strongly recomended for those who seek simplicity. Manolis house has all that it says. Plus the typical cretan hospitality of his owners. Looking forward to come back some time.
