We are looking forward to seeing you.

This house is outstanding. It’s beautiful, stylish, spacious and relaxing. It was really well equipped - everything you need in the kitchen, loads of games, pool toys, etc. The hosts could not have been nicer - answering all our questions super quickly and providing lots of items for our baby and five year old - making our stay really easy and meaning we could travel light. They also gave us loads of great tips about places to visit. The house is in a great location with beautiful beaches about a 15 minute walk away. The nearest taverna is in the next corner and is fantastic - everything was freshly prepared and delicious. About a 5 minute walk away is s pharmacy, grocers , bakery, butchers and great little coffee shop. Chania old town is really stunning with loads of great places to eat and is only a 15 minute drive away - or there’s a regular bus which goes from right outside.

The house is simply amazing and far exceeded our expectations. It is incredibly comfortable and convenient to all that Chania has to offer. We also cannot say enough about our thoughtful hosts. The communication was outstanding from the start and they were available for anything we needed. They know the area very well and made outstanding recommendations for food, shopping and sightseeing. They even offered to help us book any excursions that interested us. The home is so comfortable we didn’t want to leave. Great restaurants and food stores are close by. We travel quite extensively and by far this is the nicest experience he have had.

Vagelis’ Happy Villa is a fantastic place to stay to explore Crete from. Close to local shops, and a short drive to central Chania. The house is beautifully designed by Vagelis himself. We were 9 adults staying and were very comfortable. I highly recommend staying here if you’re visiting Crete. Cheers!

We absolutely loved the location and the incredible traditional tavern a few homes down the street (we went twice). This home exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend staying here!

Attention to detail in the villa - it was beautifully designed and furnished and absolutely everything worked. As well as being extremely stylish and comfortable, it was also a space that everyone could relax in. A lot of thought and hard work has gone into the design of the villa and it has definitely paid off. The villa owners, Niki and Vagelis are welcoming, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and very generous with their time.

The house is even better than the photos! It was child friendly and comfortable for our family of 9. The design was so well thought out with eating/ conversation areas in several locations. The pool was a favorite of all!! Our hosts were incredibly helpful in taking care of our needs with foods, toys and information. A highlight of the week was having their recommendation for a chef prepared meal at the house. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and having a car to travel to Elafonisi Beach to the south for swimming and Kissamou Bay to the west for a private day with a boat on the sea. A bus stop is close by, but we preferred using the car for the downtown Harbor and restaurants and an olive oil tasting.

We wanted somewhere which was easy to live in, relaxing, somewhere we could just chill out and yet the children had what they wanted too. We purposely chose somewhere not to far from the airport and relatively close to a beach with a heated pool. And we picked HappyVilla and indeed it was. The children were never out of the pool! Beds more comfortable than the excellent beds at Premier Inn and this made our stay perfect. Niki and Vagelis made us feel right at home and when asked about where to go etc. couldn’t have been more helpful. The kitchen was easy to use and with 9 of us the dishwasher was on a few times a day; on the quick wash - no problem. A couple of the days we went exploring to the beach a short walk with beautiful fine sand and shallow water with a restaurant too, enabling us to have food and drink whilst we were there. For a few evenings we took a short taxi ride down to the old harbour, we tried a variety of restaurants which all seemed to be good and very friendly. Thank you Niki and Vagelis for letting out your beautifully designed home and we hope to be back some day.

Happy villa is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!
We absolutely loved the place and the Evangelos were such great hosts! I stayed at few AIRBNB villas before , but the happy villa is the best one so far! We Would definitely visit there again , and the “Value for money” is guaranteed! The villa was even better than the pictures, so luxury and so Comfortable! Kitchen and Living room that Designed to the last detail, and amazing bedrooms, great porch and great pool as well.
The villa located at a small quiet village right outside Chania, few minutes from the beach, shopping center etc. A great tavern located 1 min walk, and you could easily get to the old city and to the highway. The hosts were so nice and responsive and were accessible to any question we had. Gave us great tips for places to visit and restaurants to try
I Strongly recommend any one how is looking for a great vacation at an amazing place, not to think twice and to book happy villa
We had an amazing time and the house was absolutely stunning! Down to the last detail the house had everything we needed. Close to supermarket, gyros, local taverna and beach!...
This is the best Airbnb experience I have ever had! The host, Vagelis, was wonderful—he provided amazing restaurant recommendations, activity suggestions, got us reservations—he really did it all. But just as important, the house is special! We loved it. it is even better than the photos. I highly highly recommend.
The place is absolutely amazing and designed perfectly for a large group to stay with seperate areas and bathrooms. Vagelis and his wife were very welcoming and provided great tips to local spots. Everything was arranged easily. There’s a bus just outside into town...
