Outside of Chania but still a short bus ride away, this place is close to 4 nice beaches (we recommend the Iguana Beach, go north, then take a left and go over the hill -- volleyball, nice facilities, and kid friendly). There are two supermarkets very close by (Inca is perferred). There are a variety of restaurants in the area too but we cooked our own meals in the room.
We had a room in the back which got the full brunt of the sun in the afternoon. The air conditioner wasn't working right when we first came in but it was fixed while we went to the beach. A nice kitchenette and a very small shower space -- typical in Europe, you get used to it.
Virginia and her husband and her two daughters made us feel right at home. They provided anything we asked for and helped us with our travel arrangements. Be sure to allocate a day in downtown Chania but our chief recommendation is Elafonisi Beach, one of the best beaches in the world. It is a curvy 2-hour bus ride (bus stop is only 5 blocks away) but the clearest water we've ever seen, pink coral sand, and excellent beach facilities. Just be sure to put on lots of sunscreen every hour -- the sun is much stronger here than in California or Hawaii.
We would definitely come back again and stay at Sun Clty for a longer period of time (and with a rental car this time)! This place was much friendly than other places in the area and we felt we were part of their family.
Thank you Ginny! We'll be back...
