We actually stayed at Pure Joy, Aglaia's beautiful and comfortable 3 story home in the Old Town of ancient Venetian Chania.This home has been renovated to a high standard, cool and comfortable in its vibe, an authentic, historic neighborhood with a modern renovated interior, yet still retaining character. The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax. We could walk everywhere, just minutes from the harbor and beach. All basics plus some lovely extras were provided. Aglaia could not have been a better or more gracious host. She met us, helped us park, provided detailed information and insider tips on restaurants and must do activities. We fell in love with Chania and Aglaia and feel we have made a true friend for life. A 10 +, highly recommended.
A super beautiful and charming house, that offered everything we needed for our comfort. The location of the house is just in the old city of Chania, which is very nice, but still close to the beach. Our superhost, Aglaia, gave us the best recommendations for greek restaurants and bars. The food was lovely and not expensive. Aglaia welcomed us on eastersunday with a lot of lokal food and even brought us breakfast on the last day. There was a cleaning-lady coming, every second day. All in all we totally recommend the house and its host. It was a pleasure to stay in. Luisa, Janika, Natalie, Carolin, Marie
Aglaia kindly arranged our taxi from the airport and her mum Irene and the cleaner Eva were waiting to greet us which was lovely. The house is beautiful. It sits up at the end of a little cul de sac right beside the old town. The street is quiet but there are restaurants and shops right at the end. We were not blessed by good weather but the roof terrace is lovely and you can also sit outside both the back and front doors. Eva cleaned the apartment after two days and changed all the bedding and towels. ( we only stayed for 4 days in total) . Aglaia was very helpful and welcoming. The gifts of fruit , veg, wine bread etc were also so thoughtful and much appreciated. Very well equipped kitchen. Microwave,kettle, nice dishes etc, great shower. Second toilet very useful too, as there were four of us.
We would love to return to Pure Joy and recommend it as a lovely place to stay in Chania.
We spent 6 wonderful days on the New Year holidays. The home is warm, thoughtful and elegant. We traveled together with our friends (two couples) and felt nice and comfortable. Aglaia is a fantastic hostess, her tips helped us a lot in discovering Chania's best places.
We got lovely "vasilopita" cake that was delivered to us on December 31st :-).
By the way, don't be afraid of the cute steep staircase that leads to the second bedroom. It takes just one time to try and you will like it.
This little home was perfect! The photos do it great justice. It has great history yet completely modern. Aglaia was a fantastic host! She met us at the airport, provided us all her favorite tips (best restaurants, beaches, markets, etc). Her mother bought us some great staples that were on the counter when we arrived. This was my first experience with AirBNB and it far surpassed my expectations. Thank you to Aglaia for providing such a beautiful home for us to relax in for a few days.
Wir hatten eine super tolle Woche auf Kreta, trotz viel Regen. Denn die total süße Wohnung hat uns für das schlechte Wetter entschädigt. Die Bilder entsprechen der Wirklichkeit. Man konnte auch gut mal ein gemütlichen Nachmittag oder Abend zu Hause verbringen. Sehr sauber. Die Lage ist super zentral in der Altstadt gelegen, man braucht eigentlich kein Auto. Aglaia war jederzeit per mail ansprechbar und immer bereit für eine Auskunft. Sie hat uns am Flughafen abgeholt und zu unserem Bus gebracht, wie selbstverständlich. Alles sehr herzlich. Vielen Dank nochmals :-)) Petra
Brilliant location . House and facilities spot on . Host extremely thoughtful & helpful though we did not meet face to face . Lovely birthday cake !
Dear Aglaia, Thank you for a wonderful stay at Pure Joy. You made everything so easy for us and the basket of fruit and vegetables was great. My particular favourite though was spending the lovely evenings having aperitif and watching the sun go down on the roof balcony. Thank you for everything. Sue and Russ
Aglaia answered all our queries ahead of our stay promptly and clearly. When we arrived at Pure Joy she made us feel very welcome, provided a useful pack of basic provisions to get us started and gave us very useful information about local restaurants, beaches and tourist sites.
Pure Joy is very well located in Chania - in the old town and close to bars and restaurants but down a quiet side street so you can sleep at night.
Pure Joy has been very nicely restored - modern and well equipped with thoughtful touches such as beach towels provided. The shower was excellent, the air con worked well and was quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The house was spotless and was cleaned twice while we were there.
We would definitely stay again
We loved this beautiful house in the charming town of Chania. Aglaia gave us a wonderful welcome and could not have been more helpful in giving information about the island, best restaurants in the town as well as arranging a welcome gift of local bread, fruits and wine! We couldn't fault any aspect of our stay, highly recommended!
