About Vagelis Polatos
My name is Vagelis Polatos and together with my wife Niki we own and manage Happy Villa. I am an Architect and in 2016 my wife and I decided to put all of our effort to create Happy Villa with very high standards in terms of design and quality as if it would be our home and at the same time a very good sample of my work. Our wish and efforts are to meet our guests needs and make them happy staying in our villa.
Vagelis Polatos purchased this Villa in 2016

What a surprise when we arrived at Happy Villa. The pictures are great on VBRO and very complimentary however, the home is simply lovely, architecturally well designed and clever, and very nicely furnished. Lots of natural light and windows and outside space throughout the house and wonderful views and vistas. The beds and linens are wonderful and even though on 4 levels the home is VERY LIVABLE. We were a party of 6 and we all lived very comfortably for 12 days. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space to relax. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials and the property owners were gracious and left us a basket of groceries plus other goodies until we could get to the store. The location was very good, walkable to several very good restaurants and a local market, also easy access to major streets or the freeway to get quickly to town or other parts of the Island. We took many day trips. The property owners were extremely helpful in sharing their local knowledge of restaurants, sightseeing and special activities. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at Happy Villa. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your absolutely beautiful property with us. Tom and Carol
Ideal family accommodation
Spacious well equipped property with nice balconies and terraces. It's only a two minute walk to the local taverna which doesn't look much but provides excellent food and service. Also the host was great and was always quick to provide any information we needed. Only downside with the property is that it's located on a fairly busy crossroads but it's not a major problem.
Amazing house. Incredible hosts. We could have not asked for a better home to rent. Outstanding!!!
The house is simply amazing and far exceeded our expectations. It is incredibly comfortable and convenient to all that Chania has to offer. We also cannot say enough about our thoughtful hosts. The communication was outstanding from the start and they were available for anything we needed. They know the area very well and made outstanding recommendations for food, shopping and sightseeing. They even offered to help us book any excursions that interested us. The home is so comfortable we didn’t want to leave. Great restaurants and food stores are close by.
We travel quite extensively and by far this is the nicest experience he have had.
Sasha, Josh and family where adorable guest. They where very happy and polite people. They left house in excellent condition. It was a pleasure that we met them and we hope to welcome them again in Happy Villa!
Happy Villa is outstanding!!
The house is even better than the photos! It was child friendly and comfortable for our family of 9. The design was so well thought out with eating/ conversation areas in several locations. The pool was a favorite of all!! Our hosts were incredibly helpful in taking care of our needs with foods, toys and information. A highlight of the week was having their recommendation for a chef prepared meal at the house. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and having a car to travel to Elafonisi Beach to the south for swimming and Kissamou Bay to the west for a private day with a boat on the sea. A bus stop is close by, but we preferred using the car for the downtown Harbor and restaurants and an olive oil tasting.
Thank you for your lovely review! You were absolutely wonderful guests and we would be happy to welcome you again in our place!
Beautifully designed, spotless, comfy home.
We wanted somewhere which was easy to live in, relaxing, somewhere we could just chill out and yet the children had what they wanted too. We purposely chose somewhere not to far from the airport and relatively close to a beach with a heated pool. And we picked HappyVilla and indeed it was. The children were never out of the pool! Beds more comfortable than the excellent beds at Premier Inn and this made our stay perfect. Niki and Vagelis made us feel right at home and when asked about where to go etc. couldn’t have been more helpful. The kitchen was easy to use and with 9 of us the dishwasher was on a few times a day; on the quick wash - no problem. A couple of the days we went exploring to the beach a short walk with beautiful fine sand and shallow water with a restaurant too, enabling us to have food and drink whilst we were there. For a few evenings we took a short taxi ride down to the old harbour, we tried a variety of restaurants which all seemed to be good and very friendly. Thank you Niki and Vagelis for letting out your beautifully designed home and we hope to be back some day.
Katherine and her family where lovely guests. Communication was perfect and they left the house in perfect condition. We hope to meet them again in happy villa.
AMAZING!!!!! OUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN GREECE
We stayed at Happy Villa for 3 nights and would recommend this to everyone. Vagelis and his wife made us feel at home. We were treated with so many extras and the house itself is very clean and modern. Vagelis did so many thoughtless things for us to make us feel at home. The house is very close to the beach as well as not far from Chania town. All the amenities are 10/10 and there is a lot of space for a big group. We will be returning to this amazing Villa. On behalf of the whole group, we thank you very much Vageli. Euxristo
