Great response time and communication from owner. Most helpful and accommodating in considering early check in/later checkout as available. This place, no doubt, has breathtaking, panoramic views from the veranda. The large veranda allowed me to practice some yoga. Location is just a stones throw away from the town of Thira. The public parking was easy to reach and worth the short walk. Stamos escorted us on his scooter from our meeting point so that we didn't get lost. Gave us useful advice for best sunset viewing: Oia
Be prepared for lots of uneven steps and terrain that is the nature of Santorini. This is a place where less luggage, good walking shoes with covered toes, able climbing legs, is best. Stamos was on hand help carry luggage when you arrive and depart. We stayed at the top unit because of the large veranda and views. In the room, there are steps (with no railing) to go down to the bathroom. We found this quite hazardous. We got to see the bottom unit while the housekeeper was there. It was smaller and most like a hotel room. We did notice that it was newly renovated and didn't look as tired as the top unit which bathroom could use a make over.
We were disappointed that the spa was not heated well and thus we were not able to enjoy it beyond a few minutes as we became very cold. Thira is filled with tourists and this unit is along a wonderful walking path for all admiring the view. The unit, however, maintains its privacy as it sits above the walk so you only see mostly heads of passers by. We went in early November. Many shops, restaurants, and businesses were already closed. However, we still managed to take in the awesome beauty of Santorini.
I can’t explain how truly amazing the view and location was. Close to everything shops, restaurants and the Thira to Oia cliff side trail that we got the pleasure of running each morning. Stella who treated us was the most wonderful and sweetest lady! Panagiotis (owner) was very quick to respond and very helpful as well a sweet man. Everything inside worked perfect kitchen, hot water, the shower situation was a little off but always a fun new experience. The tub got half full before the hot water was out so wasn’t able to turn on the jets. The pool outside is heated but not hot tub temperature great in the summer but our November trip it was a little too chilly as the temperature was around 60 f during the day. I highly recommend this VRBO for any couple looking for a romantic get away or anyone just looking to stay in the heart of Thira. Thank you again for helping make our trip even more gorgeous and memorable!
