Stella Mare consists of a group of rental units with balconies offering sea or garden view. Our room, decorated in local style, was not luxurious but clean & more than adequate, had a balcony with a view, a kitchenette, two rooms with a queen + a single bed. Excellent location in the middle of the village, a short walk to...

To be honest the accommodation is a little basic but clean and comfortable and beautifully set in a quiet garden. We had a big terrace where we had breakfast and pre-dinner drinks every day. Stella and family are lovely, friendly, hospitable people. Stella Mare is very close to the beach, restaurants and shops of Plaka but also secluded and quiet....

A beautifully kept garden sits in the nest of the small apartment buildings. All apartments have terraces - most of them looking to this very garden - where your privacy will be undisturbed. The town beach (a really nice one) is only a few minutes walk, restaurants and shops are just steps away. The hosts are nice and the rooms...

Very welcoming owners, a beautifully maintained garden, big balcony for the hours before dinner, close to everything and great value for the money. Stella Mare might well be the best choice in the area! Beware of the bad wi-fi, who needs it..

When we arrived at Stella Mare, Stella the owner showed us our apartment. The bedroom was beautiful with roses on the bed and swans made of the towels. The living room had a nice view at the sea. Since we were with our children, we slept in the living room. The beds were really nice. A few minutes after our...

We stayed at Stella Mare on a trip from Chania, via Knossos, to visit Spinalonga. Arriving at the end of the afternoon, we were welcomed by the owner Stella. We were led to a beautiful two room apartment with two balconies. Traveling with two kids of 5 and 7, they slept in the bedroom. Swans made of towels and rosebuds...
