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

This is possibly one of the loveliest places in Santorini. The cave houses are beautifully designed and decorated, the swimming pool is perfect and the view is beyond incredible. The service was quite marvellous and the welcome basket was so generous we hardly had to purchase anything during our holiday, even the fridge was stocked. I can't recommend it highly... More

Our four night stay at Gemela's Family Homes was the highlight of our vacation. The view, home and the host/owners were all perfect. At departure we forgot our passports in the room safe. We did not discover our mistake until we tried to check our bags at the airport. Irene and her husband were kind enough to personally rush us... More

We stayed 5 nights in the Water apartment and can only echo the sentiments of all the other reviewers. We would give it 6 stars if it was possible, as it was just one of the best places we have ever stayed, 5 star hotels included. The apartment has a sophisticated and luxurious feel and all the inclusions, glassware, crockery,... More

We decided on Gemelas because of all the great Trip Advisor reviews. They are all correct. It is a fabulous place to spend a holiday. The accommodation and view are both stunning. It has the perfect blend of self catering accommodation with all the daily care of a hotel. The thing that really makes Gemelas so special is Irene and... More

Last month we spent the holiday in Oia Santorini. It was a holiday more special because we chose to get married in this beautiful place. We could not choose a better place than Gemelas's Family Homes. The owners, Irene and Antonis are wonderful people, we felt very good in their presence, very friendly, great family. They did everything to make... More

Wow, what an amazing place to stay. We stayed here for 6 nights with the intention of travelling around the island. The views from the terrace and the convenience of having a plunge pool next to us meant we hardly moved away from here. A great place to recharge the batteries. The welcome food hamper was fabulous - so much... More

It would be hard to find the words to express how wonderful Gemela's is. It's smack on the Caldera, so you're surrounded by gorgeous white buildings and a stunning ocean and island vista. We stayed in the Fire room and it was beautiful. An old family home that's been renovated with modern amenities while retaining its character, it's hollowed out... More

This cave apartment is in the perfect location with absolutely amazing views of the caldera and the rest of Oia town. We where greeted when getting of the bus and brought to the perfect apartment filled with complimentary dressing gowns, slippers and enough products and food to last weeks. Overall this was an unforgettable experience that we owe completely to... More
