My two friends and I were very happy with this vacation rental. While it's a little tricky to find, it's a very nice option if you want to be close to Chania downtown (7-9 min drive) without paying through the roof prices for spacious accommodations. The Villa is part of a small complex that has a shared swimming pool and a little mini restaurant that is open from 8 AM to 8 PM. The property has lots of vegetation and olive trees, and the people managing the property are very friendly. There are three bedrooms in this townhouse style stand-alone unit, and the two upstairs bedrooms have air-conditioning units. We enjoyed having the kitchen and lots of space. The only drawback was the parking… Because there are people staying in the apartments on the other side of the pool, the parking can get a bit tricky and one night we had some difficulty figuring out where to put our car. And by the way, to take advantage of a place like this (which is a wonderful value for the money) you do need to have a car because it is not walking distance from downtown and I don't believe that any public transportation comes very close to this property. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property.
Half an hour's drive from Chania airport. Close to nice beaches the villa is well sited.
Taxis arranged by the resort at 3 minutes notice!
There are good restaurants nearby and the resort food is also very good.
Mr. Michalis and his team were very helpful in advising us about the things to do and places to visit in Crete.
The only improvement I would like to suggest when they renovate is to replace the bath tubs with shower cubicles as it will help people with creaky joints and is also environmentally friendlier as one needs less water to shower..

We stayed at Villa Elea as a group of 6 for 6 nights and found it an ideal place to stay.
The apartment itself was super - clean, spacious and very well equipped. The site was peaceful and we felt we had our own privacy, which was great. The location was perfect - less than 10mins walk to some amazing beaches. Lidl, the local supermarket and the essential bakeries were also a short walk away. Taxi into Chania was quick and easy (only €8 per trip). We also walked the route into town a few times, took approx 40mins.
We found the hospitality to be really accommodating as well, very friendly and helpful (thanks for booking so many taxis for us!).
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it as a ideal location to explore Chania and enjoy the beach!
Nice villa and very convenient. Near to shops beaches.
Will come again as prices are very reasonable.
Nice helpful family run business. They advised us where to go eat and sightseeing.
The Vila is 3 Bed with 2 Bath, large living room and a kitchen - ideal for a family of 3 and above big kids (teenagers). there is also nice swimming pool.
the location is great - close to a supermarket, bowling, mini golf and only 10 minutes drive from the centre of Chania.
