Absolutely stunning, luxurious villa!!

Absolutely stunning, luxurious villa!! Each bedroom and bathroom en-suite was perfect, not like usual when someone gets stuck with crappy room. The pool was perfect, tons of sun beds, towels and even floaties and toys. Place is super private, even though it is located so close to beach and amenities due to the wall and trees surrounding the villa. Great privacy and space in top floor master suite with 4 en-suite rooms downstairs. Every room has its own outdoor space as well! The area is also perfect. Short walk to endless number of restaurants (try “Roots”!) and a number of different beaches only steps away so you can try a different beach everyday. Nice blend of locals around, not just overrun with tourists. Also a lovely little park just outside the villa that you walk across to get to the beach. The park provides a semi-shaded trail loop which is great for jogging. Short, 15 min drive into the lively town of Chania or bus stops just next to the villa and runs every 15 mins. There is no doubt we would book this place again if we ever vacation in Crete again!

Best Villa close to the beach in Chania

In the last eight years we have spent five summer vacations in Crete, Chania region. We have always rented villas. So we could say that we are very experienced in this matter (-: The Sea Queen Villa is the best villa we have been to, and its location is certainly the best one possible in the Chania region. If you want to spend your holiday in this villa you have to book it almost 12 months in advance. And why the Villa is so in demand you will see if you manage to rent it. Good luck!

Highly recommended...!

We spent some wondeful time at Sea Queen Villa. Even with 5 kids and 5 adults, house felt big and well planned for such a big group. Time was mostly spent outside, at the pool area, which was well equipped with sunbeds, sitting a great area for dining and a sofa to chill out in the shade. House is gorgeous and very well hosted by Mike. He is very service minded and keeps the villa in perfect condition. House is also perfect located in a comfortable distance to the more hectic Chania centrum, close to several beaches and excellent supermarkets, and there’s good restaurants in short walking distance. If you’re looking for a fantastic holiday in Chania, this is the house to choose. Highly recommended.

David H.Markham, Ontario, Canada (USA)

We were three couples from Canada who stayed there from June 1-8, 2019. The villa was perfect in every way. It was spotless when arrived and met Michael who was very gracious and helpful and gave us a full tour before leaving us on our own. After viewing the villa on line all our expectations were met. It perfectly met our needs. For us the location was also perfect. The beach right across the street was great and has a couple of beach cafes for food and drink. Also because it is in a sheltered cove it always calm which we prefer. The villa is also in a relatively quiet location which we also prefer. Having seen the busy beach/hotel areas to the east and west of the villa this was much more desirable. Several tavernas are a few minutes walk away and the Synka and Lidl supermarkets are just up the street. Given how hot the beach could get the villa and the pool were a nice, quiet retreat. We could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Sea Queen. Five stars all the way!! Date of arrival - June 1, 2019

Fantastic Villa and fabulous place

We have just got back from the first week in Easter 2019 and are a group of 2 families (2ad, 3child 5, 12, 14 and 2 ad, 2child 11, 15) and the Sea Queen villa and its host were fantastic for us! We had seen the impressive photos on the website and in the flesh it was even better. We loved staying there and the villa was the immaculate with attention to the finest detail and all facilities we could have wanted.! The location is perfect with a park straight over the road and 3 minute walk to a great beach and 3 others within another 10 mins walking. Two supermarkets, several bars and restaurants and the nr 21 bus to get to Chania in around 15 minutes were all within a 3-10 minute walk of the villa. Thanks Mike, a fabulous place and we will be back! Yamas! (cheers). Simon and family

5 star Villa and close to Chania..

We have just left the Sea Queen and are sad to leave. It is more beautiful in person. We were greeted by Mike who manages the villa, he is on hand for anything that you need during your stay. This luxurious villa is certainly 5* it truly is beautiful and very spacious, each room offers a balcony and an en-suite bathroom finished off to very high standards. The pool is inviting and large enough for 10 people. There is a large dining area outside with an equally large built in BBQ. In the evenings the outside comes to life with lights around the house, garden and pool. Only a few steps away are 4 beautiful beaches. Restaurants and 2 good sized supermarkets. Angelos restaurant was certainly a great night and highly recommend. The buses that run into Chania harbour run every 20 minutes and only a couple of euros. I also recommend Forum suites bar and grill. Chania harbour is packed with sea front restaurants which, in the evenings are truly magical. Very beautiful with the White Mountains as a backdrop. If you are looking for a luxury villa then look no further than the Sea Queen. We will be booking again for next year that’s for sure. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

Fabulous Home

We spent a week at the Sea Queen Villa July 2018. The rental process through Chania Rentals went smoothly and was very professional. Upon arrival, Michael the property manager met us to handover keys and review the property - he was lovely! He left us with some local Cretan honey, olive oil and wine. The home was beautiful and easily accommodated our large group. Each bedroom has an ensuite bath and AC which was great for those hot summer nights. The kitchen was fully functional – even had a dishwasher (though who wants to cook on vacation?!?). The outdoor area was well maintained and beautiful – loved having the pool! Being at the villa was truly relaxing! The midweek clean was a nice feature too. Sea Queen is centrally located, just a short drive to the Lymani (Old Harbor) with tons of restaurants, shops and cafes. A 2 minute walk to Ag Apostoli Beach and Synka Supermarket up the road. It has quick access to the Ethniki Odos (Highway) to get you anywhere in Crete….Elafonissi Beach, Falassarna Beach, Kefalas Town, Rethymno, etc. We travel to Chania often as we have family there and will definitely rent the Sea Queen again!

The perfect Villa in the perfect location of Chania

We spent a week at Sea Queen Villa in July. Our group from Finland (5 adults and 3 kids) enjoyed the week very much. The villa is modern, very clean and well equipped. It is located in a nice area and the property is very private. The pool is superb! It is quite large, and our children spent most of the week swimming and playing in the water. There are also several beaches within short walking distance. We didn´t rent a car because all the services are within walking distance. There are restaurants (delicious and tasteful food) and supermarkets nearby, and you can take a bus or a taxi to Chania. Our host Mike was very helpful and friendly. Sea Queen villa is a relaxing and wonderful place to spend a holiday! We highly recommend it to everyone, with or without kids. Thank you, Mike, hopefully see you again someday! Many thanks to Chania Rentals for very good service!

Martin Stoker (Salisbury, England)

We are a group of 5 couples all over 50. We have various needs and requirements when we go away on holiday and Sea Queen Villa met all those requirements with room to spare! The villa has stunning sea views with an excellent outside area (pool, BBQ, etc.). The rooms are all clean, tidy and quite spacious. The master bedroom takes up all of the first floor and is stunning. There are a number of very good Tavernas and Restaurants within walking distance (10 mins max) to the villa. The bus service into Chania is very good and runs quite regularly (cost Euro 2 per person). Mike (the property manager) was extremely helpful during the booking process and, also, sorted out a transfer for 10 people with luggage at a very reasonable price. Once we arrived at the villa, Mike gave us a great introduction to the area and some great places and things to see and do. Overall a very helpful and nice man. As a group, we would definately stay here again and certainly reccommend this area of Crete.

Beautiful villa. Above expectation.

Our family have spent a week in this beautiful villa. I have to say the pictures do not give it justice and it is much more spacious than expected. The villa is immaculately presented and fully equipped. We are a party of 8 with two young children who absolutely adored the pool. I would certainly recommend the villa for families and groups alike. The location of the villa is excellent too. 2 minutes to the beach, local shops and restaurants. It’s an easy 15 min bus ride into beautiful chania or a £10 taxi. Mike has been incredible in his advice and support with the booking and credit should be given to his hospitality. Thank you for a lovely week and in the beautiful sea queen villa.
