The description is inaccurate - there is no air conditioning, only a fan. It was tolerable, but still very hot.
Now that that's out of the way, Afrodite was a very welcoming host. She happily met me at the apartment at 1 AM, and even brought fresh, local fruit. She made herself available for anything I might have needed, and was pleasantly flexible with check-in/out times.
Her apartment was very well-stocked: there was plenty of soap, towels, fruit, and a few bottles of water in the fridge. I booked the same night, otherwise I think there would have been even more in the fridge. She also has a juicer, so you can make fresh orange juice in the morning. Her bed has a pillow-top cover on it. Following the advice of some friends, I tried walking into some seaside hotels before booking Afrodite's place, and comfortable beds are surprisingly hard to find in Chania. That by itself makes her home worth considering. There was a spot on the street right in front of her house that made parking very easy. It's a good base if you want to voyage to Rethymnon or Gialiskari Beach during the day.
The unit is in the same building as her home and her son's. The only window faces right out into the common courtyard, so you have to choose between daylight/fresh air and privacy. The showerhead is handheld, so it's good for rinsing off, but you probably won't be taking leisurely showers here. The WiFi was not working very well at all when I arrived, but I restarted the router and it worked after that.
Afrodite was a very nice lady. If you want a place with easy parking and don't mind the missing AC, her place a good choice. If you'd rather be in the walking part of town or have a bit more privacy, I also had a good experience at the Elia Palazzo hotel.
