From the very beginning to the very end of our stay at Villa Dakoronia I felt as if we had 1st class treatment. Both Memo and Ioanna from the time we contacted them until we left made us feel welcomed and part of the family. This was one of the easiest reservations that I had made for our month long trip through Italy and Greece. The pictures are exactly what you get but above and beyond that which are not evident in the pictures is the love and care that they put into making their home as comfortable for their guests as if we were their family. Since I am a sticker for cleanliness I can say that this was the cleanest of all of our stays. I was impressed with the attention to detail and the exquisite way that they were able to make this home accommodate 6 people, 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 kids. Everything was designed to be compact yet functional. They picked us up from the docks and immediately introduced us to the island with ideas for both the adults and the children. The beds were the most comfortable that I had slept on in close to a month. Traditionally most beds in Europe are very firm but they made a point of making their mattresses softer and it made a huge difference in the pain in my back that I had been putting up with for the whole trip, allowing me to enjoy my vacation with less pain. The views are downright spectacular! Fira is the perfect location to experience the capital of Santorini and be able to enjoy it's beauty and all that the island has to offer. It was in the minor details that made this stay special. Coming back after long days doing tours or going to the water park and finding that Memo and Ioanna had lit up their walkway with the candles and on our balcony to welcome us back to their beautiful home made this special. Not too mention the incredible orange pound cake and tomato meatballs that Ioanna made for us herself! They made our 4 boys feel welcomed and made our stay memorable. Santorini is full of steps and can be steep in certain areas so it is wise to take only what you need. From the car to the home can be rough if you have too much luggage. I agree the entrance to the second floor is steep but if you are over 65 and can't go up the stairs there is plenty of space on the first floor. With Memo and Ioanna staying in their own home below we always had them available for any questions that we may have had. This is a must! Both the spectacular views of Santorini and the spectacular couple made this stay incredible!
