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!
Absolutely sublime house – a must for any Crete visitor!
Aglaia is the best host ever; one of those hosts you just wish they would be staying in the house as well :)
Ce logement est situé dans le vieux Chania.
Cependant, le logement est une petite maison sur 3 niveaux (besoin de 2 niveaux si on est maximum 3 personnes) très bien rénovée de manière très moderne.
A proximité immédiate de la mer et des rues du quartier historique MAIS au caaaalme...
La maison se trouve au bout d'une rue piétonne étroite en cul de sac.
Toutes les maisons (principalement des chambres pour touristes) ont installé des tables. C'est très convivial.
On n'a jamais mis un pied sur la terrasse privée tellement la terrasse commune était conviviale.
Quel luxe d'avoir toute une maison alors que les voisins ont en général uniquement une chambre.
Aglaia nous a toujours très bien aidés: où manger dans le quartier? où laver nos vêtements, etc.
Dommage que nous n'ayons pas pu nous rencontrer.
Le parking a toujours été relativement facile (même en plein mois de juillet).
We had a fantastic stay here! Couldn't have asked for a better place. The townhouse is gorgeous and it literally has everything you need. The location is fantastic, so close to great restaurants and also the old harbour. As mentioned by other reviews we had groceries left for us to make a great breakfast and were also provided with a bottle of wine. There is plenty of space, the house was very clean and the rooftop terrace is a great place to hang out after a day out. We honestly believe that this is the best airbnb place that we have stayed in. A definite recommendation from us! :)
