The BEST apartment and hostess!!
We’ve done a lot of traveling…and by far this apartment was the BEST…and Maria was the BEST hostess!
Maria is extremely friendly and personable! She went out of her way to help us the entire time we were there, from meeting us personally at the airport, to making sure our ferry departure was on track. At one point on our trip, we decided at the very last minute that we would like to go on a boat tour and we asked her for help. She coordinated the tour, had tickets delivered, and before we knew it we were touring the volcano, all on very short notice, and everything was amazing! She was easily the best hostess we’ve had during our travels through many European countries and she is just incredibly friendly. She even had an array of activities and things available for our kids, from cartoon movies to toys and a chessboard. My kids loved it
Calling this an “apartment” or “house” doesn’t do it justice—the place is magnificent—a beautiful Greek villa! There were 5 bedrooms with about 9 beds. One bedroom is specifically designed for kids and has 2 sets of bunk beds. My 3 kids loved claiming it as their room, while my wife and I stayed in the Master Suite, which is large and equipped with a Jacuzzi bath. I think there were 4-5 bathrooms total. The living room was large and had a full wall of glass that looked out onto the sea and a spectacular view of the Greek islands. There were 5 or 6 private balconies, too.
It’s perfect for large groups and any situation. A beach and seafood restaurant are located just 2 minutes walk from the house. Kamari beach is also just 5 minutes drive away.
We had a rental car during our visit and we thought this villa was perfectly located on the island, almost right in the center, an equal distance from both the Akrotiri ruins or Oia. The capitol, Fira, is only 5 minutes drive away...a quick ride down the cable cars, or on donkeys, from Fira is how you get to the boat tours of the volcano and hot springs.
Santorini is a wonderful place to vacation. The combination of Santorini, this house, and the hostess, made our trip an absolute PARADISE—we hope to go back again and again!
