Guestbook comments from the manager

A will remember this location as one of the best I've ever enjoyed. The house is absolutely gorgeous, every little thing shows a great attention to details, and the location is the best you can think about, as it is in the Old Town center and just few steps away from shops, restaurants, and anything you need.

And on top of a wonderful house, is the kindness, openness and helpfulness of the owner Yannis and the house administrator Christina. I rarely encountered people so dedicated to any possible need of the guests, always present to satisfy your request, giving suggestion on what to do and where to go.

Indeed I recommend this house to whoever wants to spend an holiday in Chania.

Beautiful, Comfortable, and Convenient Stay in Chania!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed pleasant stays in many different HomeAway and VRBO properties, but our five night stay in the Dorotheou House was the best yet! The location was fantastic for exploring the charming old town of Chania. Restaurants and shopping were steps away and the beautiful Venetian harbor was just a short walk.

The design of the house was both attractive and extremely functional with all the modern conveniences in a charming historic settingl. All the finishes were top quality and the entire house was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and the closet space was very useful The doors and windows were excellent in keeping out street noise and providing for good insulation. The air-conditioning was not needed often, but worked very well when we used it. The terrace and balconies were great places to soak up the ambiance of this charming ancient city.

The kitchen was well furnished with everything we needed and the cupboard and refrigerator were stocked with cheese, fruit,, bread, milk, wine, crackers, coffee, water, and more so that we had supplies for our breakfasts and snacks. A supermarket was a few blocks away where we were able to purchase other supplies as needed.

The washing machine had controls marked in English and worked very well. There were several racks outdoors complete with clothespins for drying clothes. There was also a laundromat a few blocks away which we used when we wanted to tumble dry some of our clothes.

Both the owner and property manager were very helpful in arranging our transfer from the airport and our orientation to the house. We were provided with extensive contact information in case we needed assistance, but that was not necessary because of how well everything was organized and maintained. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay at the Dorotheou House and to visit the beautiful island of Crete!

It is like coming home ... a beautiful house with a good atmosphere in a good part of Chania - a bit like Venice with shops and nice restaurants round about. Thank you Ioannis for you host and your tipps and all the things you had in your kitchen for a warm welcome. We enjoyed the time in the middle of Chania with shopping in the market hall with stop at the small taverna 'O Michalis' - such a friendly family and the Taverna Glossitses at the port with the best mussels, grilled Octopus and small fried fishes and although the restaurant Xristosomos at the end of the port with lamb specialties. It is not the last time in Chania ... Karin & Friends
