“The culmination of everything Greek and great in the world”

It's taken me over a month to write this review because I'm not sure words can do this place and these amazing people justice. I'll attempt. What an incredible location--out the driveway to the right less than 2 miles is the city (close enough to walk, far enough for quiet), to the left are all the amazing hiking experiences. I won't use too many words describing how perfect Crete is (but it is) but I must say, after six weeks in Greece, Crete was in our top 3 of over ten islands. Take my advice, shorten your time in Athens and add it to Crete. Most importantly, book this exceptional home, owned by three of the most kind and charming people you will ever meet. Their home is gorgeous. Steep stairs up to the bedrooms I don't recommend for the elderly, but fine for healthy adults and kids 5+. Farm animals and a sweet dog and cat. But the people!--So generously brought us home cooked food and wine. We shared conversation and culture and this truly was the culmination of everything Greek--beauty, great food, a kind family and an experience like no other. This is what I dreamt about planning my trip. Thank you Nikos, Maria and Fluery! We WILL be back!

“Hidden oasis in Chania”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This comfortable home is behind a cafe and toy shop and forms part of a small hobby farm. The owners, Maria, Stellios and their daughter, Flery, are wonderful hosts and were very kind and accomodating. As with other reviews, Maria cooked her famous cheese pie, and there were other goodies for us to enjoy throughout our six-day stay (home made biscuits, wine, raki, fruit, etc). They provided excellent recommendations for local restaurants and beaches and allowed our children to collect eggs and feed their goats, rabbits and chickens. It would be helpful to have a car if you're staying here but not essential as Chania has many buses and is only 2km from the house. We would definitely stay here again!!!

“When in Chania, stay here!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just returned from an amazing stay here. If you go to Crete stay here! You will have a truly memorable trip

Firstly, the house is exactly as pictured if not better in reality. We loved the authentic charm this Cretan home had. It was clean, spacious and very beautiful.

Secondly and most importantly what made this place phenomenal were the hosts, Maria and Stelios. They were amazing. They treated us like family and were so unbelievably welcoming. We arrived at 11.30pm to the house and Maria had a homemade fresh from the oven traditional Greek cheese pie ready to welcome us. They had our fridge stocked with wines, local alcohol and homemade limoncello. They gave us fresh eggs from their chickens and homemade olive oil from their olives just to name a few things. Throughout our time they were always available and extremely helpful.

Over the years we have done many home rentals but Maria and Stelios have been the best host we have ever had. They have given us amazing memories to take back from our trip to Crete. We hope to be back soon!
