Very welcoming hosts. Great breakfast choices included - we enjoyed the omelettes, yoghurt, sour cherries and homemade marmalade. Villa was very clean and spacious with good aircon if needed. The pool is a welcome addition with a shady seating area around it, a sun bathing area and a good view of the sunset. About 10-15 minutes walk to the edge... More

Everything! Fantastic stay here. Sami, Sisi (excuse the spelling), their super cute twin boys and their staff are great. Everyone is so helpful, friendly & knowledgeable, everything is super clean, fresh towels every day, great views, gorgeous pool and lovely breakfasts. We also met some great fellow guests from lots of different places. Great value for money. Will definitely go... More

Traditional cave houses were a unique type of place to stay. Unit was clean and had a beautiful minimalistic design. Beds were comfortable that offer a unique experience, Wifi was available in our villa as well as around the pool If you wish to live in the traditional ‘Santorini’ houses, this is a great opportunity with beautiful surroundings. Great balcony... More

Me, the missis and our 15 year old sleeping machine stayed here for two nights last weekend. We arrived on the Blue Star and we jumped on the small bus which the accommodation arranged for 25 Euro (good value for 3 people as taxi was considerably more). Arrived at the villas about 45 minutes later with a bunch of Kiwis... More

Ambelia far exceeded our expectations. The facilities and rooms are modern with fresh decor, the rooms are spacious and each comes with a private patio which is great for sitting out of an evening. Plenty of variety at breakfast and the food is good. The couple who run this place (Sami & his wife) are what really sets it apart... More

Quiet, relaxing villas about 10 minutes walking distance from Oia. For the people saying it took 20-30 minutes to walk to Oia--they are either directionally challenged, or got there by crawling. You get to experience all the beauty of Oia without the tourist noise and high prices. If you want to be smack dab in the middle of tourist-packed Oia... More

Stayed here for 3d2n. This is very quiet and relaxing place. Room doesn't have wifi coverage and keeping u quiet and away from work. Boss and staff are friendly, nice and helpful. Beautiful pool with sea view. It takes about 15 mins to talk to the oia town and the square. I wld recommend to those budget travellers!

Lovely cave style accommodation just on the edge of Oia. Fabulous manager who even did our washing for us. Big cave, full kitchen, sitting room and bedroom. Very serviceable bathroom. Fresh omelet made for breakfast. No WIFI in room but accessible in the pool/breakfast area. A bit of a walk into Oia but no problem. We thought we were getting... More
