About The Owner

Hi I'm Evelyn, and I look forward to welcoming you soon! I am married and a mother of two little daughters. I was born and raised on the island of Crete, have studied abroad (U.K.), travelled a lot, and the experience of being an ‘Ownersdirect’ host and meeting so many lovely people along the way is really something I particularly enjoy. My focus has always been the ultimate satisfaction of my guests. I guarantee prompt assistance, comfortable, relaxing and "home away from home" experience during your stay with high standards of hospitality.

I used ‘Evelyn’s House’ as my own home for several years. Since 2016 I have turned it into a for-hire residence hoping to give the opportunity to guests from all over the world to enjoy this magnificent area of Chania town with all the modern amenities. License is granted by the Greek National Tourism Organization (E.O.T.) for the lease of Evelyn’s House.

I am looking forward to being your host and making you feel home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are glad to have found it! The place is in a great condition and it is really comfortable. We planned day trips away from Chania so it was great that we were able to park the car just outside the house. We also enjoyed the 15-min walk to town; definitely helpful walking back after eating all the delicious Cretan food! Also, Evelyn was always ready to answer our questions and gave us great recommendations for things to do and restaurants. Many thanks again for having us!

Best Wishes, Myriam

Fabulous house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days at Evelyn's House July 2018. The rental process through VRBO went smoothly. Upon arrival, Evelyn met us to handover keys and review the property - she was lovely! She left us with a big bowl of fruit and a bottle of Cretan wine. The home easily accommodated our large group. Each bedroom had an en-suite bath and AC which was great for those hot summer nights. The beds were super comfortable. It was fun hanging out on the roof top deck in the evening. The location is great, walking distance to The Dikasteria rotary with grocery, pharmacy, restaurants & coffee along the way. Walking along the water in the other direction leads you to the Lymani (Old Harbor) with tons of restaurants, shops and cafes. We travel to Chania often as we have family there - all the info Evelyn provided (restaurants, day trips, beaches, etc) were spot on - lots of our favorites were listed! We would highly recommend staying at Evelyn's House!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Evelyn's house. It literally was a home away from home. We traveled with 3 of our young adult children.

- Of the 5 different places we stayed during our recent trip to Greece, Evelyn's House was clearly our favorite.

- The house is new, beautiful and well designed. Plenty of electrical outlets for today's travelers with multiple devices. The top floor with the hot tub and lounge chairs is a true gem. The hot tub felt like heaven after hiking the Samaria Gorge.

- The house is fantastically furnished. Beds are very comfortable. Kitchen appliances are top notch and serving dishes and wine glasses are nice. Bathrobes and towels are luxurious.

- The location is great. It is one block off the Main Street so it is easy to find. Mini market is about 4 blocks away. It is walking distance to the old city, but far enough away that you're not in the middle of the traffic. And the view of the sea from the top floor is great.

- Evelyn and her family are great hosts. She responds quickly and professionally to inquiries. We arrived on a Sunday and needed help with some other travel arrangements due to a strike. They directed us to a travel agency that was open that day so we were able to quickly take care of the problem.

- The only negative issues we encountered with the house were very minor. A circuit breaker tripped a couple of times which was easily reset. Wi-fi was limited in the "mother-in-law's" suite. The entrance to the top floor is only accessible through one of the bedrooms. None of these issues posed a problem for us.

- Chania is an enchanting city and Evelyn's House is a great place to stay and use as a base to explore the city and Western Crete. We look forward to going back and we have warmly recommended Evelyn's House to our friends.

Amazing property with stunning roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 mature friends and have just returned from staying in this lovely house. It was exactly as described with extra little touches that made it even more special from the monogrammed bed linen and towels to the luxury toiletries. All essentials were provided and fully air conditioned rooms were a blessing as it was very hot while we were there. The rooftop terrace was a fabulous place to relax or have that pre dinner drink. Although we never met Evelyn, she provided all information in advance via email so we could plan ahead and her family who lived close by were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this property.

Fantastic property in Chania

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (3 adults, 1 child) stayed for six nights at Evelyn's house in April 2018. We loved everything about the experience. Evelyn was very helpful and accommodating -- allowing us to drop our bags early and arrange an early morning taxi. And the house is well appointed including sea views from the hot tub! The location is a 15 minute walk from Old Town in Chania, which was perfect since it allowed us to be at a quiet distance from the tourist hub. You can get to the sea within a two-minute walk to walk along the beach or the pier. We would absolutely stay here again.

Wonderful place in Chania

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples that stayed in Evelyn's place in Chania in January. We all loved it! It was modern, clean, and with every amenity you can think of. Important to us without a car, we were able to easily walk everywhere. Evelyn had all the information we could need on bus schedules, how to get to the airport, good restaurants, maps of the town and surrounding areas of interest. She was always in touch with us and sent her parents to answer any questions. Loved the beds, the showers, and the hot tub. Highly recommend!

Although Chania is not a big city, there is much to discover on foot. The Kum Kapi beach is at a walking distance of only 200 meters. Along the seaside road of Miaouli Coast in Koum Kapi, there are cafes, restaurants and bars, all by the sea and overlooking the endless blue of the Cretan Sea. The island is famous for its Cretan diet and food.

At a distance of approximately 800 meters, you can visit the home of the national leader Eleftherios Venizelos, the house of Reuf Pasha and the mansion of Baron Schwarz. At about 600 meters distance three churches stand: a Greek Orthodox, a Catholic, and a Russian Orthodox one.

Moreover, Evelyn's House is within 100 m walk away from a summer cinema. Finally, there are many food shops, markets, bakeries and groceries close by. There's so much for the visitor to see and truly enjoy. The Cretan people are extremely friendly and helpful.

Getting Around ...

Souda Port is at a distance of 6 km and Ioannis Daskalogiannis International Airport is 11 km away.

It is very easy for one to transfer in and out to down town of Chania. Chania has a good service with public buses towards many places. There is a city bus stop at 100 m.

The radio taxi area is at a 5- minute walking distance.

A rented car is recommended should the visitor wishes to explore the island.
