Hello everybody !
Our house lies in the district called "Chrisi Akti" (Golden beach), 4 kms away from the centre of Chania and only 150 m from the golden sandy beach. Three more beaches are at your "disposal" within a 5 min walk. Just a few steps from the house there is a lovely park where you can enjoy running, jogging or just walking early in the morning or late in the (website hidden) ideal spot for friends or families to discover real Crete.
The apartment is on the ground floor of a family building and has been recently decorated with a lot of colors in a creative way. A green yard with unspoiled view and BBQ, a fully equipped kitchen,a sunny and cool living room and a cozy bedroom with a double comfy bed are all yours !
You will also be pleased to find lots of English and German books, a high-speed internet connection, a washer with free detergent, air conditioning and fresh Cretan products that will be waiting for you in the house to make your stay relaxing and memorable.
Fresh bath towels and bed linens, tips about Crete, and a free city guide with the hip spots of the town are provided so that you feel like a local. During your stay we will assist you any time needed.
Within walking distance you will find the bus station (100 m.), 2 supermarkets (800 m), many restaurants and a pharmacy (800 m.).
In case you want to take a trip , the exotic beach of Falassarna, the astonishing lagoon of Balos and the breathtaking Samaria gorge are highly recommended!
Please let me know your dates and a bit about yourself. Hope you are a traveller, not a tourist.
Come, stay and leave happy :-)
I naturally want everybody to have a great time- so there are only a few things to consider.
Since it is a quiet residential house I would appreciate your discretion and please, no smoking in the house. You can enjoy your cigarette in the yard!
I and my family had a wonderful time at Stylish house. Perfection holiday is not enough said. Elina's mom is a grate person. She took care of as from the beginning.
Beachs and stores are close. To the Old City you can go by walk along the sea. What more could we wont :-).
My daughter and I spend 6 memorable days at Elina's apartment. She and her mother could not have been more welcoming! We were close to the beach and to the supermarket so we could cook for ourselves if we wanted. The accomodations are just as listed. Elina's mother lives in the building and was very helpful with everything we needed and even cooked us Cretian specialty, Boureki. The apartment is only 10 minutes by car from Chania and there is easy access to the National Road for traveling around the island. there is a lovely view of the mountains from the kitchen window and the back patio. We really didn't want to leave! If I lived in Europe I would definitely return.
L'accueil que nous avons eu de la part de Elina et de sa mère a été très chaleureux et plein de délicates attentions telles des produits locaux à notre intention et des informations pertinentes pour faciliter notre séjour. Nous avons apprécié la grande disponibilité de notre hôtesse. Le logement est propre et fonctionnel et bien situé pour visiter l'ouest de l'île. Un séjour donc fort agréable.
This was such an amazing, perfect, cozy place to stay. Elina and Nadia really make you feel like its a home away from home, ensuring you have everything you need in Crete. I was there in winter, so it was great to have Elina's maps to tell me the best places to go, since I knew they would all be open (as they are local). I cannot say enough good things about this place and would return in a minute!
My stay was nothing for of fantastic. The family is super kind and generous. Elina has maps she and her boyfriend made available so you can experience the best of Chania. Much appreciated.
The place is perfect, with every detail taken care of. There was great food when I arrived. I never tired of scampering down the hill to the beaches and the hiking, and the walk to the old village and harbor was great. Plenty of markets nearby to pick from. Only a 10 minute walk away. The kitchen is great to cook in. Strong wifi. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood. I can't say enough good things!
This family were incredibly friendly, hospitable and accommodating hosts. they went above and beyond what we expected and we thank them very much, especially when we had to leave early for personal reasons.
The apartment has all the comforts and is very clean.
Having a car would have been a great plus for us in helping to see more of the country south of Chania. Many of the Regional buses had stopped for the season. As is usual for Greece, and especially in suburban areas many of the local services for tourists had closed their doors for a very well earned break.
Our visit to Elina's house truly was like home from home. Her whole family were so hospitable and made us feel so welcome. The apartment was beautiful, clean, spacious and very well equipped. I can't fault it. Elina's attention to detail makes it a delight to stay in her house. Elina's information and maps were also very useful and she gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. Also great to have wi-fi. The welcome food was delicious - such variety and wonderful to sample the local products. We had a hire car and was great to park it just outside our house. The location was great for going out to explore the west of crete and staying more local to see Chania. We had a wonderful time and would definitely go back to stay - I highly recommend Elina as a host.

I m 26 and work as a teacher in Crete. When I m not in the school, I like riding my bike , crafting, making pastries and sewing. I, also, love to travel, cook and receive people in my home. I know travelers wish to try out what is real and typical, and since not everybody has friends as tourist guides, this type of stay will help you avoid tourist traps and discover what to do during your stay at Chania, while enjoying a wonderful home.
