Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful stay at The House by the Sea. The house and grounds are perfectly situated across from a lovely beach, clean, spacious, and stylish, and well appointed with modern amenities. Chania was our favorite town in Crete, and Natalia was a gracious and available host. I'd highly recommend this!

I come from Chania

I studied and I work as a civil engineer.

My family and I live in Chania.

This lovely country house, is the first house, built in this lovely area .

It is built just 10 m from the sandy beach of Chrissi Akti.

Repairs to the house were made with absolute respect to the architecture of the period of its construction. It is a house that I adore just see it, full of memories from childhood ...

The property is as beautiful as in the pictures, with beautiful decoration and full of charm, the apartment clean and well equipped, the terraces dotted with flowering plants. The owners are absolutely charming while remaining very discreet.

Fantastic place, very quiet setting, recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a few days in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere!

The garden is an oasis in its own right with olive and bougainvillea trees encircling the house. This space provides ample opportunities for both relaxing and entertaining at the generous and shady garden table. From the garden, at sunset, the terrace lounge area provides an ideal setting.

Inside the property is an information book giving useful tips and advice to help you make the most of your holiday and the surrounding area. Other activities (water sports, sailing courses and other water sports) are available 2 km from the property. 500 m away there is also horse riding.

For those loving the mountains there is on 15 klm to the wonderful mountain area of for example Therisso Gorge. On the way there are many mountain villages waiting to be explored, offering beautiful views and good old fashion traditional Cretan food. The surroundings offer all someone could wish, from lovely beaches to amazing mountains, from modern beach life to old historical places, all reachable in not more than 20 minutes.

Located very close to Chania with easy access on foot 30 min, by bus 10 min, taxi and car 7 min.

It is perfect for two friendly families....

Beautiful sea view

  • 5 of 5
We must confirm other guests impressions.
The house exceptional location is directly on the beach, that is very comfortable especially traveling with kids. The house is big, clean, furnished with taste and has 1100 q.m. garden. In the garden there is a hot shower, that we loved, tennis table, hammock, swings and oven to grill. The beach is very safe for small children and water is very clear, shallow and warm. August was very hot during the day, but with light breeze in the evening. We booked 10 days 7-17 August 2013 and we were a couple with a 4-years-old daughter. We lived on the top floor with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Linen/towels were changed twice a week, as well as house cleaning, and there were a lot of big and small towels prepared for us in a wardrobe.
In the house there is a washing machine, a big refrigerator and a hairdryer. There is a very good WiFi internet connection. There is also air-conditioning system in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. We had breakfast on the terrace with beautiful sea view and evening dinner as well with candles light. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and the dishwasher. The supermarkets are in max. 5 minutes by car. We got everything in IN.KA supermarket and there are a couple of minimarket round the corner. The bus station is directly near the house. You can reach the old town Chania in 10 minutes by bus or by taxi. The price for taxi 7 euros. There are also good Greece restaurants around 10 minutes to go and a lot of them in Chania old town. There is a parking place inside of house.
The house is a very good spot to reach many beautiful places and beaches like Falassarna, Elafonissi, Balos, and for traveling throught Chania region.
Since August is high season, the beach in front of the house was crowded and during the day there were cars and buses passing by the road between the house and the beach, whereas was quiet during evenings and nights. I think it is more quiet during the rest of the year.
Mosquitos in Summer season are frequent during the night and they can be a problem since there are no windows mosquitos nets in the top floor, whereas there are in the bottom floor.
Natalia was very nice and helpful for everything we needed and she helps us also renting a car for a reasonable price.
Thanks Natalia, we hope to come back again in "the house by the sea"!

Scheduled flights to Athens arrive daily from just about everywhere. You can then either fly on to Crete or take the overnight ferry. Aegean Air is generally a bit cheaper than Olympic for the domestic hop Athens-Chania, and you can book online.

We can arrange for a taxi or hire car to meet you at Chania airport or Souda ferry port.

Chania airport is about 30 minutes drive from Chrissi Akti

Ferries :If you fly to Athens airport there is a bus to Piraeus (the port of Athens) which takes about an hour, or you can take a taxi. Make sure your flight arrives in time to get to the port.

The ANEK line ferries usually leave Piraeus at 21.00 and arrive at Souda (The port for Chania) at 05.30 am the next day.

The return ferry leaves Souda at 21.00 and arrives at Piraeus at 05.30.

They are very comfortable and you can book a cabin.

Walking from the house to Chania town:

Continue along the beach of Chrissi Akti, through Aptera beach, continue along the beach of Nea Hora and arrive at the Firkas Forte in the Old Town

It is a very nice bike ride.

Finding us by bus

Buses start at “Nea Katastimata” square, and it is about 10 minutes' ride to the house.

The bus stop in Chrissi Akti is 50m from the house.

Our beach

Chrissi Akti (2,5 kilometres far from Chania at the West) :

“The House by the Sea” is located directly in front of the majestic Chrissi Akti Beach on the north side of Crete. The idyllic beauty of Chrissi Akti Beach is known by all. Stretching for over one kilometre, Chrissi Akti is blessed with pure and natural golden sand. The water is shallow so it is safe for children. The island in the middle is visible from a great distance and it can be visited by boat.

Walking 300m up the beach heading west, you arrive at Agioi Apostoloi nature area where you find two sandy beaches, a park with a playground, a small forest of pines for walking, jogging, and picnics. Also there are family restaurants, big & small supermarkets, and tourist and car rental offices in the surrounding area.

Many other beautiful beaches are around, such as Glaros, Aptera and Kalamaki.

It’s a good base if you want to be close to town without being in it. It’s also very useful if you have children (the beaches are safer than most beaches on the northwest coast). The beach is a sandy cove with clear water, well organised, with canteens on the beach as well as facilities for swimming and sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas, sea sports etc). Informal volleyball games can also be played in the afternoons and body surfing and windsurfing atop the waves is possible. During the summer season a lifeguard is on duty.

Chrissi Akti is an convenient area, 7 minutes' drive from the centre of Chania (a town that stays alive even in winter), where you can enjoy a rich night life, good food, shops and marketplaces and you can find pretty cobbled Venetian streets lined with shops. A 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the house, there are great restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets ranging from those providing local cuisine to the more international choices.

About the area:
