There are no words to express our satisfaction since we decided to stay in Gemelas Family Homes. It is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy of the best views of the Caldera in Oia. The apartment is convenient located closer to restaurants, supermarkets, shopping center, car and tour rentals. Irene and her husband Adonis though about every single detail... More

30 seconds walk to grocery store, ATM, restaurant, bus station 8 minutes walk to the beginning of the main shopping street. My second visit to Santorini is so much better than the first, thanks to Gemela Family House! I stayed in Thira during my first visit. Let me tell you, it so worth it to splurge a bit to stay...

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and loved it. Our cave room and view were absolutely breathtaking. It is in an idyllic location (about 400 metres or so from the pedestrian walkway in Oia) and away from the throngs of tourists who come up to Oia to watch the sunset. Irene and Adonis provided the most wonderful... More

My wife and I just got back from our stay at Gemela's and we are still in awe of how perfect everything was with our stay. Irene and Adonis made us feel like we were at home except with a view to die for. Everything with the cave home was immaculate. It was easy to see the pride that they... More

Finding the right location in satorini was a challenge in an island famous for its steps as my 72 year old mother was my travel companion. We were so blessed to come across this gem of a place! Where do I start! Location- this lovely cave house is located in beautiful Oia by the caldera. It is on the quieter... More

Our experience at Gemela's was beyond our expectations (on our fourth trip to the island, our expectations were already very high). Our goal this time was to cook Greek food and enjoy meals "in" with our friends" and that's what we did. Gemela's is in a gorgeous location,...caldera views are stunning, and small markets and the town of Oia are... More

The review is long overdue as we went to Santorini last September. We did extensive research before choosing Gemela's and our efforts paid off. Consider yourself lucky if you find this hidden gem in Oia. I honestly can't think of any other place that we'd rather stay in and we're already planning to come back sometime in May. The location...

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon...8 nights were spent at Gemela's Family Homes. We were in the Earth home and it was seriously beyond perfect. This home is located in the perfect area of Santorini. You are still in Oia, but away from the heavy foot traffic of the village. The village is within easy walking distance... More

Anything positive I can say about Irene and Adonis, their hospitality,the view, the state of the accommodation (both earth and water) have already been said here many times. I only hope "earth" or "water" is available at the time you are requesting it, as staying anywhere else in Santorini will just not be as good as staying at Gemela's.

Gemela's is a gorgeous choice and situated in the best area of Santorini (Oia). The cave-houses are beautiful, light and wonderfully designed and decorated, and the pool is exceptional. The professionalism and friendliness of the owners far exceeded our expectations. Not only were they friendly, helpful and informative but they also provided us with enormous gift-baskets full of gourmet foods... More
