I am very happy I had to opportunity to stay in Stylish house.
Everything was better that I could imagine.
Highly recommend to anyone who wants to visit the Chania and outskirts.
We had a lovely stay in this apartment. Very clean, comfortable bed, nice bathroom and reasonably well-appointed kitchen area. The bedroom has an air conditioning unit that works well and is fairly quiet. The terrace at the rear has lovely views over an olive grove and the garden around the property is well-kept, with a lemon tree that gave us a couple of huge, fragrant lemons during our stay. The washing machine worked well and there is a drying area for clothes at the side of the property. The owners are welcoming and pleasant but not intrusive.
The description of the property as "convenient for the beach" is something of an understatement as there are 4 different beaches between 3 minutes walk and 15 minutes walk away, each with a slightly different aspect and character. We swam every day, mostly in the early evening when the beaches were quiet and cooler, then had a drink at one of the beach bars afterwards. There are a couple of tavernas within a short walk in either direction- about 15 minutes or so.
The apartment felt authentically local, which we found a good thing, but this did include the builders at the property next door and some noise as a result, Fortunately our hire car was very small and easy to park, as the street is quite narrow (although if this bothered you there is easy parking at the beach end of the street, a couple of minutes walk to the property).
We drove into Chania on a couple of occasions- it's a short drive and we found an underground pay car park just outside the Old Town- but if you did not have a car there are frequent local buses, although the lovely American girls in the adjacent apartment walked there every day. Overall, I would definitely recommend this apartment.
I couldn't imagine staying in a more perfect place. I have nothing but positives to say about this rental. Welcoming hosts, a perfect location, quiet space, and conveniently located. Having such a perfect space to return to at the end of our travel days made our trip to Crete so enjoyable.
The villa is situated in a quiet area overlooking an olive grove. The table for two on the patio overlooking the olive trees is simply wonderful. I spent many an hour there drinking lovely Cretan wine while reading a book. The apartment was very clean, spacious, bright, and delightfully decorated by the host's daughter. The hosts are incredibly kind, gracious, and knowledgeable. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived to the very second we left. Being locals, the hosts were able to provide a list of places to see, restaurants to visit, and the best shopping in the area. That advice proved invaluable time and time again.
Chania, with its turquoise water, beautiful beaches, soaring mountains and a rich history, is definitely a paradise. The locals are friendly and always happy to help a tourist. Who could ask for more?
The "Above and Beyond Award" goes to our hosts, Nantia and Kostas for their very generous hospitality. After a long day of travel from Canada we found our hosts had left us some wonderful treats: local olive oil, raki (a traditional Cretan spirit), wine, pastries, coffee, tea, and the most delicious oranges we have ever tasted! We felt so spoiled. Each message we sent was answered promptly and we were even provided with a local map designed by their daughter that proved very useful.
I encourage anyone to pay a visit to beautiful Crete and to make a point of staying at Nantia's place in Chania. You will not be disappointed!.
Nantia was a lovely,friendly host. Nothing was too much trouble. She left us lots of greek goodies for our stay, yes,including Raki!.
Only a 5 minute walk to beach, and there were plenty of them.
Quick bus ride to Chania, really cheap.
We will be planning a return visit in the near future.
The appartment is exactly as shown on the photos, very well equiped and lovely decorated with charming details. Everything was clean and in a very good condition. Nantia and Kostas were so generous hosts, there were so many delicious cretan specialities prepared for us, and Nantia had a lot of recommmendations for us where to go. The appartment is located a few minutes walk away from 3 nice beaches, and there are several hotels and supermarkets nearby, also the bus stop to Chania. Despite of some houses under construction in the neighbourhood, we had a relaxed time at stylish house. Absolutely recommendable!
A beautiful and well kept modern apartment with an incredible view, Nantia's place is super close to public transport and within walking distance of Chania. A short walk to local restaurants & beautiful local beaches too.
Nantia and her husband were the best hosts ever and Nantia took so much time to help me plan my stay in Crete and help me find the right transport to get from a to b. Upon arrival I was also greeted with so many edible delights (local cheese, yoghurt, wine, salad & homemade sweets!!!!).
This place was beautifully presented, super clean & tidy yet homely, and had everything you could need. Definitely recommend very highly indeed.
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment. Nantia and Kostas gave us a warm welcome and tasty refreshments they had ready for us! The tips they gave us proved really valuable. It's a great place, with the beach in 3 min walking distance and lots of shops and tavernas nearby. We had a great and relaxing time! Thanks a lot, Nantia and Kostas! All the best!
