Thank you, Maria, for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home with everything you could possibly need. It is close to everything and extremely convenient. The host was outstanding, having welcoming food and treats. We would not hesitate to stay in this home in the future. It was fantastic.
What a beautiful house! The decoration, furnishings and equipment are all first class and show exquisite taste.
It was perfect accommodation for a week for two couples. The owner, Maria, was so kind and helpful. She arranged the airport transfer for us and we arrived to find a huge bowl of fruit, wine, raki and a meal of chicken and potatoes for four. Wonderful! Later in the week, Maria helped us with car hire. The house has its own secure parking just 50 metres away which was a great asset.
The house is really well located and we could easily walk anywhere in Chania. The Venetian Harbour is just a minute away.
Maria’s recommendations for restaurants, bars and excursions were excellent. We ate and drank very well!
We can’t recommend this property highly enough and would love to return one day.
Thank you again, Maria.
Outstanding host and location!!
So I don't know where to start. First off Maria was an amazing host!! She kept in constant contact prior to the trip to ensure we had the information we needed in order top make our trip enjoyable. She sent us a 20 page pamphlet on all recommendations in Crete, to include restaurants, activities, beaches, outdoor stuff, etc. she emailed to ensure we had transportation to and from the airport. she offered to have her friend come pick us up or a rental car company to use (which we did rent a car for 100 euro for the week). When we arrived at the apartment she had her mom prepare a local Cretan dish (similar to lasagna) and it was waiting warm on the stove which was awesome because we were starving by the time we arrived and it was a sunday sp the big supermarkets weren't open. She stocked the apartment with:
- enough coffee/tea and sugar for the week
- a brand new unopened jar of Cretan honey (which was so good. we put it on everything)
- a bottle of local liquor (Raki)
- a bottle of wine
- a huge bowl of fresh fruits (oranges, pears, apples, strawberries)
- sesame seed candies
- local mountain tea (with directions on how to make it)
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
Pretty much everything you need (basics) to cook. The apartment was in a perfect location!!! Literally within 45 sec walk to Venetian Harbour. This was my 5th time in Crete because I love it and this was one of my favorite places to stay. Wifi worked 100% of the time. apartment was equipped with a washer/dryer. the place was immaculate and I don't know what she used to wash the blankets and sheets but they smelt amazing! Maris wasn't intrusive at all, which I was very thankful for because I have rented apartments before where the landlord stayed coming over consistently and it became too much. anyways I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Maria!
Deziree is as beautiful as Chania!
Our first trip to Greece went to Athens, Sailing the Aegean, Santorini, and then to Chania. The stay In this picturesque little port city was like a vacation from our vacation.
Our hostess, Maria, was warm and inviting from the moment we made our reservations. She emailed us a detailed list of all of the information that we would need during our visit. This made it possible to plan some outings prior to our arrival thus leaving lots of time to linger.
We took the high-speed ferry to Heraklion and stayed over there. The next day we had a leisurely breakfast, visited the palace of Knossos, had lunch in the Lovely town of Rethymnon and headed to Chania.
The heavy rains made finding the property a bit difficult but one phone call had Maria’s friend standing in the downpour to direct us down “the wide right” (which turned out to be a miniature street between two buildings). Cold, wet and hungry we entered our little five-day paradise to find an inviting, warm oasis with a hot pan of pasticio, fresh fruit, wine, Raki, a coffee maker AND coffee and candy!!! Thank you, Maria!! We did not have to “run out” for a single provision!
We put on our “fat clothes” and were in for the night.
If you read all the previous reviews and look at the pictures you will see the perfection of an interior-designer inspired space that was spotless!! Immaculate! We felt like we were using everything in the house for the first time.
Visiting in Maria’s home was like going to visit a favorite cousin.
The location of this beautiful, eclectic house was convenient to everything. We ran out in the morning to the bakery for pastries; we walked around downtown Chania; we stopped in at all the lovely convenient restaurants; we ran down at the last minute to see the most spectacular sunset we had viewed in Greece; and we lingered over cocktails overlooking the harbor. When we splashed our way home in the pouring rain an incredible five-star hotel shower awaited us and all of our clothes went immediately into the washer/dryer.
The house is airy and open and the beds are warm and inviting. It is located close to Crete’s best day trips.
We stay in houses when we travel so that we can feel a part of the neighborhood and the culture. This one speaks of dancing, drinking, loving and eating.
If we did not have Thanksgiving, Christmas and jobs in front of us we would be back this weekend.
Efkalisto, Maria, for making this idyllic vacation happen!
Beautiful renovated house in old town of Chania
Great location and practically brand new "old" house on quiet street 1 block from harbor. Parking near the house was easy. Our host Maria was fantastic with welcome wine and fruit. Easy communication and flexible check in and check out. Recommended.
Highly recommend this property!
This restored property is like new, but keeps much of the charm of old Chania. With modern amenites - washer/dryer, plenty of power, WiFi - it made a great home base for our family. The photos tell a good story; the property has an excellent design aesthetic. It is in an excellent location - walkable to everything! We arrived to a bowl of fresh fruit and other local treats, including homemade chicken/potatoes for our family of 4. Maria arranged our transport and was so helpful when we needed advice for traveling on Crete. We loved Crete and Maria’s property was amazing!
