This villa is beyond magnificent; our expectations were far exceeded! Hilary and her husband could not have chosen a more perfect location or built a more perfect place for our large 23 person and 2 dog annual family reunion. We really did feel like we were on top of the world directly overlooking the beach full of people and boaters, which was fun for the kids and those in the family who like crowds. However, some of our family chose to relax in the more peaceful setting on the not-so-crowded national park beach. Either way, they are next to each other and our group was only 25ft apart which made it very comfortable for everyone to be together.
The house is not only beautifully decorated, but it's comfortable, user friendly, and so very full of amenities. There's nothing missing that we could have possibly wanted. Being there was like owning your own Mediterranean villa for a few days. No one wanted to leave.
Our family came from Wisconsin, New York, and Nevada for this year’s family reunion and are so glad we settled on Miller Beach. The ages ranged from toddler to 79 years young and this house was fabulous for each and every one of us. The beds and bedrooms were extraordinarily comfortable and beautiful (no expense spared on bedding and furnishings). The kitchen was an awesome dream—who offers two kitchen sinks, two dishwashers, two ovens, two ice machines, and two wine cellars? Not to mention all the mini-bars all over the place. This place was made to entertain on all levels.
The site was superb not only with its gorgeous views from the terraces and decks. The view of the lake and skyline were breathtaking. Sunrise soaks in the hot tub and sunset dinners on the terrace in front of the fire are memories that will be shared for years.
Every picture of this house on the web is accurate, however, they did hang more art and spread more rugs and stuff. Everything is as you see it and beyond. And, an added bonus was the personal service we received from Hilary and her staff. Being a clean-freak, I was surprised about the attention to detail, especially for such a large home. We could not have had better care. It made our stay so positive in every way. We are seasoned travelers, and cannot recommend villa Santorini enough.
It is worth every penny and more.
