Two Wonderful Weeks in Oia
I admit, I was blessed to be able to spend two full weeks on Santorini this month (April 2013), it was the most fantastic luxury. Fortunately for me, I chose to spend those two weeks at Maria's Place with wonderful hosts Anna and Kostas. The price was definitely right, the location was great (easily walkable to the main area of Oia with all the shops and great sunset-viewing), and the room was very well appointed with everything I needed - free WiFi, refrigerator, double burner, microwave, cooking utensils, pots, a pan, drinking glasses, wine glasses, a large bowl, place settings for four, the full setup. Since I was there for so long, I cooked my own meals a lot but I also got out and enjoyed the local restaurants - which I sincerely recommend. Anna was great about giving me insider tips of where to go, what to see, directions, and generally anything I needed. The view from my room looked out to the ocean and was absolutely beautiful. There was a balcony with a nice table and two chairs. I enjoyed having my wine there in the evenings and tea or coffee during the day. Frankly, I did not notice how often the sheets on the bed were changed but it was certainly re-made and the room cleaned everyday. The towels were changed every couple of days which was often enough for me. One of my favorite parts of the day was sitting in the lovely shaded outdoor communal seating area with Anna in the mornings, having coffee, and talking about my day. And if there is strawberry jam, have some, because Anna probably made it herself and it is delicious! Honestly, I had a great couple of weeks on Santorini and that is in large part because of Anna and Kostas and their wonderful hospitality. I highly recommend Maria's Place!
