“One of a kind experience”

This house is an adventure and each day brings its own story-- stories we have collected to remember about our first trip to Crete.
First of all, this house is not directly accessible by car. You need to unload your luggage on a side street and walk 100 yards to the house. The hosts live next door and address all your needs promptly. This was not an issue for us.
The house is 3 stories with two bedrooms and an alcove with a bed that allowed our little one to live out her "Heidi" dreams. It is spotlessly clean and bright. The best part of the house is the location. You are in the middle of the town and don't really need a car unless you want to leave Chania. All restaurants are within stone's throw from the house. It is a very safe location and we walked everywhere (even at midnight with kids) without any issues.
The downside: there is some noise late at night thanks to the restaurant below but lilting Greek music might just be soporific to some. We closed our windows to filter out the sound at night.
Xenia and Costa are the perfect hosts-- never intruding but prompt with their attention to any needs or queries. We loved our stay in their home and thank them for providing us with such a fun adventure. Xenia also leaves some local goodies for you to enjoy. We appreciated all the small touches. Thank you for our parting gifts too.
Hope we can see you again when we return to Crete.

“Beautiful family home, centrally located for all the best of Chania. Thoroughly recommended.”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Odyssey house is a beautiful home in a very quaint, idyllic side street in the heart of Chania old town. Our hosts were so welcoming they made our stay extra special. We thank Mr Kosta and Mrs Xenia for their warm hospitality - it was a wonderful holiday, we will be back!

“Loved and will return”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were 8 people and stayed in both the Odyssey House and Odyssey Studios. The location could not have been better. We enjoyed staying in old town near the water. The house was big, spacious and super clean. Xenia, the owner was amazing. She was available and accommodating. The odyssey Studio was not a studio like in the USA- it was a one bedroom. Large and clean. We all enjoyed everything about this property. It was quite a reasonable price as well. I will return. Thanks Xenia

“Exceptional hospitality, beautiful house in a fantastic location”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great hospitality from Xenia and Kostas. They always made time for questions or chats. The house was lovely and in a fantastic location. The harbour was a two minute walk away and Nea Hora beach about 10 minutes along the sea front. The terrace upstairs can be warm, but you can always sit outside in front of the house at the traveller's table. The house was perfect for 5 people. It was very clean and the mattresses were comfortable.

“Perfect! Gorgeous house in a gorgeous location”

I traveled to Chania with a group of 4 other friends. We were so happy with the house, everything is clean and tidy! Greece is so beautiful and Chania is the perfect get-away location with amazing beaches (defiantly visit Agii Apostoli beach) sun, delicious food and lovely friendly cats!

The house has 3 spacious bedrooms that were perfect for a group of our size. Walking distance to loads of restaurants and shops that usually stay open until 10 or 11pm! Everyone is so friendly, the area is really lovely we can't wait to return!

The owners provide towels, plug sockets, tourist information... honestly the owners cannot do enough for you! I want to thank them for their amazing hospitality towards us, we had a wonderful stay and only wished we stayed longer!

“Perfect bolt-hole from which to explore CHania Old Town”

person found this review helpful

We have a villa in Kokkino Chorio ourselves (Villa Vouno), but as our flights back to Dublin are on a Wednesday and I had guests coming on a Tuesday, we decided to take an overnight in Chania itself......WELL....what can I say!
We enjoyed it so much that we are planning to do the same thing this October and have pretty much decided to make it a part of the holiday time we have as a family from now on.
There is a fabulous little tavern opposite Odyssey House which we made great use of and whiled away the wee small hours putting the world to rights with the waiter there!!
Perfectly positioned to explore the oldest part of the city and metres away from the harbour front. Our youngest loved the high bunk up at the very top of the house and our girls loved the fact that the kitchen was in the basement with a vaulted ceiling. You can nearly feel the history around you. Xenia and her hubby were the most welcoming hosts and kept our bags for us for a few hours the next day.
If you want a perfect base, Odyssey House is perfect.

“A home from home”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What a fantastic find, the house is tastefully renovated and contains everything you would need on your holiday, the owners who live next door could not have been more welcoming and helpful. As the house is in a pedestrian zone the few car parking spaces nearby are soon taken but there is a large free car park only minutes away.
There was a welcome breakfast pack waiting for us together with a homemade liquor in the fridge.
Good WiFi in all areas of the house.
There is a music bar next door but this was closed during our stay so cannot comment of this.
