About The Owner

Hi I'm Evelyn, and I look forward to welcoming you soon! I am married and a mother of two little daughters. I was born and raised on the island of Crete, have studied abroad (U.K.), travelled a lot, and the experience of being an ‘Ownersdirect’ host and meeting so many lovely people along the way is really something I particularly enjoy. My focus has always been the ultimate satisfaction of my guests. I guarantee prompt assistance, comfortable, relaxing and "home away from home" experience during your stay with high standards of hospitality.

I used ‘Evelyn’s House’ as my own home for several years. Since 2016 I have turned it into a for-hire residence hoping to give the opportunity to guests from all over the world to enjoy this magnificent area of Chania town with all the modern amenities. License is granted by the Greek National Tourism Organization (E.O.T.) for the lease of Evelyn’s House.

I am looking forward to being your host and making you feel home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are glad to have found it! The place is in a great condition and it is really comfortable. We planned day trips away from Chania so it was great that we were able to park the car just outside the house. We also enjoyed the 15-min walk to town; definitely helpful walking back after eating all the delicious Cretan food! Also, Evelyn was always ready to answer our questions and gave us great recommendations for things to do and restaurants. Many thanks again for having us!

Best Wishes, Myriam

Fantastic property in Chania

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (3 adults, 1 child) stayed for six nights at Evelyn's house in April 2018. We loved everything about the experience. Evelyn was very helpful and accommodating -- allowing us to drop our bags early and arrange an early morning taxi. And the house is well appointed including sea views from the hot tub! The location is a 15 minute walk from Old Town in Chania, which was perfect since it allowed us to be at a quiet distance from the tourist hub. You can get to the sea within a two-minute walk to walk along the beach or the pier. We would absolutely stay here again.

Wonderful place in Chania

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples that stayed in Evelyn's place in Chania in January. We all loved it! It was modern, clean, and with every amenity you can think of. Important to us without a car, we were able to easily walk everywhere. Evelyn had all the information we could need on bus schedules, how to get to the airport, good restaurants, maps of the town and surrounding areas of interest. She was always in touch with us and sent her parents to answer any questions. Loved the beds, the showers, and the hot tub. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had excellent communication with Evelyn. She was very Thorough with the information about the apartment & the local information too.

The house is great! Great accommodations, tastefully decorated. Beds, pillows & linens were excellent. With plenty of extra towels too! Washer & drier is provided As well as well stocked kitchen complete with coffee pods & a bottle of wine!

We had excellent neighbors Evelyn’s sister & her husband who went so far as to order delivery gyro’s & salads & gave us an additional bottle of nice wine!!!

The roof top patio & hot tub are an excellent place to sit with your coffee in the morning or wine and watch the sunsets.

Chania is a charming town & easy to walk to everything...we did rent a car to explore Crete & the apartment also has a garage which was convenient. No detail has been missed & every convenice has been thought of—I Highly Recommend this VRBO!!! Thank you for everything!!!💕�

Great house, wonderful hostess

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised and we spent a lot of time both mornings and evenings enjoying the wonderful view from the deck. The old Venetian Port is a short walk away with its many shops and restaurants. There are also other restaurants and places to obtain groceries or other essentials a short walk away. Evelyn provided many insight on these with maps & descriptions.

We were a family group of 6 adults, 2 married couples included and had plenty of room.

Evelyn was a wonderful hostess and great communicator. We had various issues with the site regarding the second payment which we could not get resolved with customer service so we ultimately used PayPal.

I would recommend Evelyn's House to any group staying in Chania.

Beautiful property definitely 5 star plus.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Evelina's house, from the moment we arrived Evelina and her family were there to greet us, Evelina then took us round the house to familiarise us with all the amenities and rooms, before she left she advised when the housekeeper would be in and also asked if we would like her to arrange for a traditional Cretan meal to be cooked by a family member and brought into the house on a day of our choice, we said we would love to take her up on the offer and said we would email her with a day to suit.

The house was decorated to the highest standard and the views from the rooftop terrace were breathtaking.

Evelina supplied water, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls,soap powder and conditioner for washing, something that we have always had to buy ourselves when arriving at previous holiday rentals.

We had the most amazing chilled holiday at Evelina's house and was made to feel welcome and part of Evilana's family during our stay, we were sad to leave, but will definitely be returning not only for our holiday, but to see Evelina and her family again.

Thank you Evelina to you and your family for making us feel welcome in your beautiful home in Chania.

Look forward to seeing you again.

Amazing!

Evelina's house was perfect for our family vacation to Chania. The house was well equipped, immaculate with a great terrace overlooking the sea. She was very responsive, informative and took care of all our needs. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a great house in great location to stay at Evelina's house.

Car: not necessary

Although Chania is not a big city, there is much to discover on foot. The Kum Kapi beach is at a walking distance of only 200 meters. Along the seaside road of Miaouli Coast in Koum Kapi, there are cafes, restaurants and bars, all by the sea and overlooking the endless blue of the Cretan Sea. The island is famous for its Cretan diet and food.

At a distance of approximately 800 meters, you can visit the home of the national leader Eleftherios Venizelos, the house of Reuf Pasha and the mansion of Baron Schwarz. At about 600 meters distance three churches stand: a Greek Orthodox, a Catholic, and a Russian Orthodox one.

Moreover, Evelyn's House is within 100 m walk away from a summer cinema. Finally, there are many food shops, markets, bakeries and groceries close by. There's so much for the visitor to see and truly enjoy. The Cretan people are extremely friendly and helpful.

Getting Around ...

Souda Port is at a distance of 6 km and Ioannis Daskalogiannis International Airport is 11 km away.

It is very easy for one to transfer in and out to down town of Chania. Chania has a good service with public buses towards many places. There is a city bus stop at 100 m.

The radio taxi area is at a 5- minute walking distance.

A rented car is recommended should the visitor wishes to explore the island.
