About The Owner

Hello, my name is Maryellen and i will be your primary host during your stay. I was born in the United States but am currently living and working in Chania.

Kyanon House and apartment is my family home.

The house was designed with lots of love by my parents to embrace the views of the Cretan sea and the beauty of the surrounding forest.

My family has always loved to entertain and host guests, so it seemed very natural to start to share Kyanon apartment as a vacation rental and assist others in enjoying their vacation in a peaceful, luxurious setting.

A great stay in Chania in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Kyanon house only for 5 nights (unfortunately) but wish we could stay longer.

The house was surrounded by trees and located in an amazing spot overlooking the town of Chania, which was only 5 min drive. It also had one of the most beautiful sunsets we had seen.

A few of the things worth noting was the beautiful pool, the nicely decorated interior with attention to detail, all the amenities that were available for us to use and very importantly the cleanliness inside and outside the house.

Last but not least, Mariellen and her family were great hosts!!! They offered us advice about things to do and where to go and always made sure that we are satisfied with our stay. We also enjoyed all the small Cretan treats they brought us.

Thank you for an amazing stay and looking forward to seeing you again.

Just a perfect place!

We spent wonderful days at Kyanon house.

The house is amazing with a wonderful view of Chania, with a beautiful garden and the location is great, close to the city center.

Everything in the house is perfect and the attention given by the owners made a difference to our stay being perfect.

However, this apartment is ideally located even for those who do not want to explore by car but just want to relax and enjoy all the amenities of city living as well. The neighborhood of Agios Mathaios is very quiet and residential, but it is located on the outskirts of Chania, right off the main road that connects the town with the Airport, the University Campus and all the beaches and villages of the Akrotiri peninsula.

Guests can take the bus (Bus stop is located 600m from house) or even walk to downtown.

Getting around:

Distances to other important locations:

- Nearest bus stop that takes you to Chania City Center is 600 m walking distance.

-5.2 km to old Venetian harbor of Chania

- Within 1 km walking distance you can find a bakery, a fruit market and a 24 hr mini mart.
