Pure Joy Boutique Town House is an eclectic renovated structure, in a charming cul-de-sac in the Venetian Harbor of Chania. In this pedestrian street, the liveliness of the historic quarters pauses, unfolding moments of contemplation and privacy.

The space

In keeping with the tight scale in these historic grounds what is unique about this property is its chimerical use of space, surprising young and old with features such as staircase drawers and a steep architectural staircase (not for everyone:). This architectural gem is the perfect accommodation both as a romantic hide-out as well as a home away from home for a small family.

Guest access

This unique accommodation has two bedrooms, one bathroom and a WC. There is one bathroom with a rain shower on the first floor, and a WC on the ground floor. The living room and fully-equipped kitchen are also on the ground floor.

We visited Pure Joy for our honeymoon for 3 nights along with another couple. Agalia's place is very conveniently located near the harbour which made it very easy to access everything we needed around the town. The house was spacious and perfect size for 2 couples. We arrived late and the key was in the lockbox waiting for us so we had no issues with check in. There was a big basket of fruit, some yogurt, milk and orange juice waiting for us which was a nice surprise. All in all, highly recommend staying here and the pictures/description are very accurate.

We had a very relaxing holiday staying in this lovely house with 2 adults and a 18 year old. The house has obviously been modernised to a high standard and has quality fittings in the bathrooms and kitchen, and the bedrooms are very comfortable with AC if you need it. You can sit around outside the front door or on the lovely roof terrace with its very comfortable sofa. The location is fantastic, right in the old part of this very historic harbour/town with shops and restaurants immediately accessible. There is a great beach 10 mins walk with plenty of sun beds, restaurants etc. We had the best free snorkelling experience there - swimming around the rocks - much better than the snorkelling from the Chania boat trip we went on. Aglaia was a great host and was very helpful in providing local information and arranging taxis etc.

Visited Crete with three friends and that was our first time ever using airbnb. The location, the place and the price is unreal! We recommend this place 5/5!

Aglaia's place in Chania is perfect. My husband, daughter (13) and I stayed for 6 nights. The location is ideal! We loved walking to the port in the am for a frappe and in the evening for dinner. There is on street parking near by and we never had a problem finding a spot. I would stay here again when visiting Chania.

Our family had a wonderful 5 night stay in Aglaia's lovely house in August. We have two teenage children (boy 14, girl 12) and the house worked perfectly for us. The location could not be better, in the old town, a 1 minute walk to the bustling waterfront with the choice of all the restaurants. We were met on check in by Aglaia's mother, who explained everything to us, answered any questions we had. She had even left some supplies for us (bread, eggs, milk, juice, fruit) which was a nice touch. We were there during a hot August (up to 35C), but the air conditioning made it a real haven to come back to and cool down. And the wifi was adequate for two teenage kids! The beach is less than 10 minutes walk away. And there is free car parking nearby if you are driving. It gets busy at weekends, but I never had more than a 5 minute walk back. There is a rooftop balcony to sit out on in the evenings, though we preferred to sit outside the front door in the shaded alley with all of the other locals. I'm sure there are more positive things I could write, but you get the point. We highly recommend this location if you are visiting Chania. One very minor point. When our taxi driver put the address into (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps at the airport, she was directly to an incorrect location downtown. It's best to mention that Ritzou Andrea is off "Theotokopoulou", the main pedestrian street through the old town. And note, this is a pedestrian street, though the taxi can get you to within about 50 metres of your destination.

Beautiful home! It was able to fit two couples comfortably with more than enough space! Close walking distance to top rated restaurants and the beach. If you want to catch any tours, the bus picks you 100ft away. An amazing place for our Greece adventures!
