Excellent stay - great location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 6 nights here in late June - 2 adults. Host was responsive and finding the place/host was straightforward other than the fact that you cannot drive right up to the unit since cars are not allowed in old-town. Location was ideal - restaurants/shops right out the door. Only a few hundred meters from the harbor. A/C worked well (it was hot when we visited). Safe, secure area. Clean and well furnished. Washer was small but more than sufficient. Be aware that this is a 4 level unit (top level is one of the bathrooms and deck) - so lots of steps.

Charming place in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming and well-located home base to enjoy the many pleasures of Old Town. You can walk around to the many outdoor restaurants and cafes, and shops where artisans sell their beautiful clothing, jewelry and crafts. The picturesque Venetian Harbor of Chania is nearby. You can also easily step out of Old Town into the city and walk to the bus station for travels elsewhere in Crete. The place is a small, vertical home – 4 floors. For each bedroom, the bathroom is on a separate floor. Katerina was a very helpful host, and responded right away to any questions we had.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cris for staying with your lovely daughter in my property and appreciating its amenities. This house is very old . It was built before the seventeenth century in the Hebrew neighborhood of Old town according to the typical way locals built their houses in old town. I wish you visit again soon.

Location, location, location in the heart of Old Chania!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 18yo daughter and I enjoyed four days in this lovely home in June 2017.

Communication Pre-Stay: Outstanding! Katarina could not have been more helpful, detailed, clear and responsive.

Check-in: Katarina's assistant Constantina met us and greeted us very warmly, even though we were quite late arriving. She was very gracious and thorough, and made sure we knew everything we needed to know (including that we could call on her at any time for any help). We were very grateful that the kitchen was stocked with bottled water, coffee and creamer, fruits, bread, and even wine!

The Home: Highlights were OUTSTANDING air conditioning in the two bedrooms, a washing machine on the top floor (and a nice drying rack for the wet laundry), a lovely roof patio, reliable WiFi and--again--LOCATION! I cannot imagine any home in Chania being more conveniently situated.

We loved Chania and hope to visit again!

Great mix of urban and old world

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful renovated home, with an eclectic decor. Aikaterini had thought of every detail down to shampoos in every bathroom, detergent, hair dryers.., all the touches and the home is immaculate and fully functional. We were welcomed with fruit, wine and a treat upon arrival. We felt as if we were staying in a friend's home.

The location is amazing, in the heart of the old town close to everything and we truly lived like locals, even having dinner right next door at Mikio where Georgia took extra special care of us as Aikterini's guests and greeted us every day as we went about our adventures. The rooftop patio was a great place to unwind at the end of the day before heading out for dinner. Aikaterini was available by text or phone and any questions were promptly addressed.

This home is perfect for 1 or 2 couples or a family with teenagers as there are lots of beautiful furnishings and steps which could pose problems for younger families. Anyone with mobility problems should also avoid as there are 4 floors and quite a few steps to handle.

Overall a great way to experience Chania and would highly recommend.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most delightful week in this lovely home. The pictures do not do it justice. The charming home, lovely hosts, and delightful neighborhood won us over from the first minute we walked through the door. Katerina responded to every question we had immediately, offered us lots of help getting oriented and acquainted, and was so kind throughout. The location is perfect, right in the heart of old town and just a few blocks from the bus station and taxi stand. We will definitely be back.

Great location! Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, near harbor, transport, shopping and dining! Most comfortable beds ever! We loved eating on th rooftop where we could hear music from the cafes. Please make sure to visit the artist shop across from the rental. He is the most amazing person and a beautiful representation of the Greek people!
