Pure Joy Boutique Town House is an eclectic renovated structure, in a charming cul-de-sac in the Venetian Harbor of Chania. In this pedestrian street, the liveliness of the historic quarters pauses, unfolding moments of contemplation and privacy.

The space

In keeping with the tight scale in these historic grounds what is unique about this property is its chimerical use of space, surprising young and old with features such as staircase drawers and a steep architectural staircase (not for everyone:). This architectural gem is the perfect accommodation both as a romantic hide-out as well as a home away from home for a small family.

Guest access

This unique accommodation has two bedrooms, one bathroom and a WC. There is one bathroom with a rain shower on the first floor, and a WC on the ground floor. The living room and fully-equipped kitchen are also on the ground floor.

Everything went well from the start. Aglaia was fantastic with communication via emails. We had a very warm welcome from Irene ( Aglaia mother) She had organised a basket of fruit and vegetables, bread, butter, milk etc, everything we needed to get started. The apartment is beautiful. Just like the photos show. It's located in a fantastic location in the old town. Close to the sea, restaurants and the supermarket. Lovely neighborhood and neighbors. Wish we had arranged to stay longer. Would definitely recommend staying there. Great place for a holiday

We LOVED Pure Joy! The apartment itself is very clean, stylish, and spacious; wonderful to come home to. It was perfect for our group of four with two bathrooms and plenty of space both indoors and outdoors to hang out. The location can't be beat - it's a short walk to the Old Venetian Harbor, countless restaurants and shops, and a lovely sunset view by the water, but also on a quiet and charming dead-end street. Both the street and the space were just adorable. The hosts are incredible - fantastic communication, thoughtful touches in place when you arrive, and excellent responsiveness. Check in and out was very easy. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and wouldn't hesitate to return to Pure Joy if we're fortunate enough to visit Chania again.

We visited Pure Joy for our honeymoon for 3 nights along with another couple. Agalia's place is very conveniently located near the harbour which made it very easy to access everything we needed around the town. The house was spacious and perfect size for 2 couples. We arrived late and the key was in the lockbox waiting for us so we had no issues with check in. There was a big basket of fruit, some yogurt, milk and orange juice waiting for us which was a nice surprise. All in all, highly recommend staying here and the pictures/description are very accurate.

We had a very relaxing holiday staying in this lovely house with 2 adults and a 18 year old. The house has obviously been modernised to a high standard and has quality fittings in the bathrooms and kitchen, and the bedrooms are very comfortable with AC if you need it. You can sit around outside the front door or on the lovely roof terrace with its very comfortable sofa. The location is fantastic, right in the old part of this very historic harbour/town with shops and restaurants immediately accessible. There is a great beach 10 mins walk with plenty of sun beds, restaurants etc. We had the best free snorkelling experience there - swimming around the rocks - much better than the snorkelling from the Chania boat trip we went on. Aglaia was a great host and was very helpful in providing local information and arranging taxis etc.

Visited Crete with three friends and that was our first time ever using airbnb. The location, the place and the price is unreal! We recommend this place 5/5!

Aglaia's place in Chania is perfect. My husband, daughter (13) and I stayed for 6 nights. The location is ideal! We loved walking to the port in the am for a frappe and in the evening for dinner. There is on street parking near by and we never had a problem finding a spot. I would stay here again when visiting Chania.
