Stayed at this villa in August with family which included 2 children. There are a lot of steps over 4 floors which doesn’t make this a good choice for young children and older people. We also had an 81 year old lady with us.
The pool is situated on the roof and is only big enough to cool off in.
Of the 4 bedrooms only one had a balcony large enough to sit out on. The main balcony, on the first floor, had a table big enough for 4 people with 8 chairs!
The villa is tastefully decorated, the bathrooms (except for the master bedroom ensuite) need some storage facilities as there aren’t any.
It is ideally situated close to the beach and all restaurants and shops.
It has a sea view by going up onto the roof or from the front upstairs patio. The villa fronts onto a dirt road lane.
The WiFi was also very hit and miss.
Overall this wasn’t really for us. Agia Marina is very commercialised and busy, we prefer quiet and tranquil so we won’t be back.
Could really ask for more! Superb apartment, secluded a few yards from beach, restaurants and shops. Above all staff couldn't have been more helpful
Thank you all!

We hired to villa as a group of 6 to attend a wedding in Chania. Wonderful villa right by the beach. Great rooftop pool and easy access to Chania old town by bus or taxi. Perfect base for day trips to secluded beaches across Crete. Would definitely recommend.
Stayed for seven nights - two families with toddlers.
They provide beach toys and towels which was excellent. Beach is super close. Heaps of restaurants and shops nearby albeit a tad touristy.
Things to note:
There is a single front loader washing machine for six 4 bedroom villas. It is not sufficient and you need to wait a lot. Also, it jams quite a bit and needs manual draining.
The wifi was hit and miss. Some phones wouldn't connect at all and it dropped out frequently. This was very frustrating.
Three bedrooms are on one floor and the fourth is two floors down. Not ideal for splitting two sets of parents and toddlers.
Location is right on the Main Street so it's quite noisy and busy.
Grassy section at the front has no fence and opens straight out onto the street so not suitable for toddler play.
All in all, we had a good time but would look elsewhere for next time as I think there would be better options for our family situation.
