In English in order to be grammatically correct you would need to say: "The window doesn't have a nice view."

That is one of the accepted translations. If it was not accepted there might have been an error. If you could send us a screenshot showing the exercise, your translation and the response from Duolingo se could resolve this issue.

Does θέα also mean goddess?

So near but yet so far. It is θεά with the accent on the last letter. I can't find any connection in any of the dictionaries or in the etymology. Very interesting observation. Thank you.

From the etymology, I think that θέα must come from θεάω (to view, to observe). The occitone accent for goddess is classical.

Yes, I was referring to "θεά". "Θέα" is more logical.
