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!

Sehr charmantes Ferienhaus !

Ein sehr sympathisches Haus in der Mitte der Altstadt. Super Lage und doch ruhig und entspannend. Schoen sauber und in gutem Zustand. Die Terasse ist ein absoluter Wohlfuehlplatz. Die Hausherrin war sehr hilfreich und grosszuegig.
