This is a most difficult review to write as all that is good about Gemelas Family Homes has been written in previous reviews. We are are party of four pensioners coming to the end of a two week stay. We all agree the accommodation and service is par excellence,(of the highest quality). Only 17 steps down to very private cave... More

It's all been said in previous reviews. Gemela's truly is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at. It is close to restaurants, shops, groceries, bus stop. There are 2 rooms on this property the "Earth" room and the "Water" room. Both rooms share a terrace and a pool overlooking the caldera. We stayed in the "Water"... More

Excellent location, private, quiet, close to groceries, buses, restaurants and Oia's pedestrian strip with an outstanding caldera view. Not too many steps! Beautiful apartment with many thoughtful touches including a huge welcome hamper of supplies. Loved the pool! Warm, welcoming and helpful hosts who made our stay even more special! Many thanks to Irene and Adonis for making my Santorini... More

Everything has already been said. We came with high expectations and they were met in every way. We stayed in Water for 5 nights with 2 adults and 2 teens. The Cave House is extremely well stocked to the finest detail, usual things like hairdryer but also things like flat iron (hair straightener), binoculars, star gazing telescope, coffee machine, percolator,...

We stayed in Earth for 4 nights and lived everything about it. The accomodation was five star and the view incredible. Our hosts were lovely hospitable caring people who ensured our stay was perfect. Cannot recommend highly enough.

It's probably all been said before by many previous guests, but our stay at Gemela's was an exceptional experience. Most of this was due to Irene who could not have been more helpful and welcoming to her family villa. Look no further... you will get the real Santorini experience staying in an exquisite cave villa perched on the clifftop, but... More

We would echo all of the other reviews for Gemela's Family Homes… it is amazing. We cannot say enough good things about this place. Glad to see everyone else who has stayed there agrees. Can't even imagine a better experience than what we had on our recent trip. They treat you like family and do everything possible to make your... More

We have been to Oia before and we stayed in a top “SLH” rated hotel. This was much better! We arrived and were met by Irene and her husband Apollo. They were very nice and took time to show us around the cave home. We actually stayed in both rooms during our stay and can say they are both equally... More

Awww...Gemelas. What a wonderful, little piece of paradise! We stayed here for four nights in May. The location is perfect, easy to get to, close to town and right around the corner from a small supermarket. We were met by Irene and Adonis who were nothing other than extremely accommodating and gracious during our stay. We stayed in the Water... More

We decided on Gemelas after lengthy research on TA options in Oia, we stayed for 7 nights. Before travelling we contacted Irene to arrange pick up from the airport to Oia, on arrival in Oia we were meet by Irene. We were taken to the Gemelas Family Homes which is not that far from where we dropped off. There are... More
