Clean, comfortable and a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented Efi’s lovely town house in Chania in September 2016. We arrived late at night and after some help from Efi on the phone we finally found the house at the end of a quiet lane. We had a small rental car (city type car) which we were able to park at the end of the lane next to the house – this was a real bonus as parking like everywhere is a problem. The house was immaculately clean and comfortable and just what we were looking for. The location could not be better, three minutes walk to the bustling old harbour area of Chania which is packed with restaurants and little shops. Great town to explore and a great base for doing some touring. All in all the accommodation gave us everything we needed and Efi was on the phone a few times to check we were OK. If you want a bit of hustle and bustle with a quiet haven after a busy day (sitting on the roof top terrace having a glass of wine/ouzo after a busy day was a real pleasure) and a base do some touring then Efi’s little town house fits the bill.

My wife and I rented this house to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Efi was extremely easy and willing to communicate every detail. Her house was just as presented and we were extremely pleased. We chose it based on the reviews by others and they were spot on. The location is perfect being extremely convenient to everything in Old Town but situated on a dead end street making it seem quieter than the busy harbor just minutes away. We would highly recommend staying there and plan on doing it again ourselves on our next trip!

Phenomenal !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Efi's Venetian house in January and I could not have been happier. The house is immaculately clean, bright and tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. There is no detail that has been overlooked; everything is taken care of and thoughtfully chosen. Even though it was winter I really had a wonderful holiday feeling in this house -plus comfortable heating and hot showers !

The house is in a quiet dead-end street just behind the old harbor, which makes it amazing peaceful in such a central location. An amazing place to stay.

peaceful, charming and romantic

  • 5 of 5

Due to a delay with our flight we arrived much later than expected, however Efi made provisions for us and kept in touch with us regularly before we flew out and when we arrived she informed us of the cost of transfers to the property from the airport. When we arrived at the house it was tidy, clean and ready to be used. We had a look around the house before retiring for the night and found the listing description of the property to be entirely accurate. The surrounding neighbourhood was peaceful and quiet, which matched our expectations for a quiet place to stay whilst on holiday. The harbour and other conveniences such as local shops were also a brief walk away, so it was very easy to buy everyday ingredients and cook for ourselves whilst staying at the house or to have a meal at one of the nearby restaurants on the harbour. The rooftop terrace was one of the highlights for us at this property, due to the lovely sunsets that can be admired from it and the relative privacy that it offers whilst enjoying meals. The rooftop is also perfect for sunbathing too, however we found ourselves going to one of the many nearby beaches on our many walks. Efi visited us twice during our stay at the property and on the first occasion kindly gave us a bottle of Malagousia to enjoy, which was a lovely introduction to Greek wines and a fantastic start to our holiday. I could not recommend this property enough if you are in search of a peaceful, charming and romantic locale whilst in Chania!

brilliantly located, greek hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Venetian House in July 2015 for one week. The house is brilliantly located in the Old Town, about a 3 minute walk to the harbour and a five minute walk to the hub of the Old Town where all the local restaurants, bars and markets are. The bus station is an 8 minute walk so the house is really in a prime location. The house was very clean and we were welcomed with a bottle of local Greek White Wine and some roasted peppers that Efi had prepared which were delicious. The house is split on three levels with the roof terrace on the fourth floor which has superb views of the mountains and New Town on one side with the sea, lighthouse and old town on the other; a great place to have breakfast or a drink in the evening watching the sunset. The house was superbly equipped with everything you could need to make your stay a home from home. Everything that we needed was equipped. I would most definitely stay here again.

Great holidays at Venetian house

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit. So stylish and comfortable. We loved it. Great location. House

charming , and everything in excellent order. This house has everything you could possibly want for a week's holiday. Very clean and beautifully presented and decorated. This is a different experience, living in the heart of Chania within walking distance from everything in the town.

The roof terrace is a joy to sit on. It is what sold it for us and we made very good use of it for lounging, eating and sitting out under the stars. A perfect location, embedded within a friendly local community, very different from the many faceless tourist accommodations in Crete. The location was excellent, close to shops, great restaurants and in a lovely part of the town

Efi is the perfect host. She gave us all the info we needed and then left us in peace for the week, but was on hand if we needed her. We would recommend it to anybody who loves an independent holiday in a remarkably quiet part of the old town, yet in the centre of the old Venetian town of Chania.

One of Crete’s main attractions is the beautiful old town of Chania with its Venetian Harbour lined with cafes and restaurants, and winding cobbled alleyways. Steeped in history, Chania stands on the ancient site of Kydonia which flourished during the Roman period, and later became the capital city of the Cretan State (1897 to 1913).

The harbour was built by the Venetians between 1320 and 1356. It was used for commerce and also as a fortification against pirate attacks.

The lighthouse is a distinctive feature of the harbour. It was built at the harbour entrance by the Venetians and restored in its present form by the Egyptians (1830-1840).

Take time to explore the back alleyways, you’ll be amazed at the gems you’ll discover: beautiful old Venetian buildings with courtyard cafes and cozy restaurants, Cretan handicraft shops, boot makers on the Leather Street, and rows of shops selling hand carved Cretan knives at the Stivanadika.
