Had a really great time in Chania staying at at Nikos' place, and ended up extending my stay twice to fully take advantage.
The apartment itself is spacious, with a comfortable bed, and fully equipped with everything one could need during a stay, including a good wifi connection. The place is just far outside the old town to give you a sense of peace and a feeling of living among the locals, but close enough to get to center, or the bus station in very little time. Nikos also lent me his bike, which was great for getting around quickly, and discovering the nearby beaches, villages and nature. Grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants for eat-in or delivery all nearby.
Nikos himself was very quick to respond to any questions, and his mother, who lives next door, always had a smile and some cookies to offer.
Would definitely come back.
