it's been said many times in other reviews below but yes, Gemelas was perfect! We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon after 15 days traveling through Switzerland and Italy. We arrived in Oia to find Irene and Adonis waiting at the drop off point for us and helped us down to the villa with our bags. We had... More

We cannot say enough good things about Gemela's. This is hands down the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at and that would include 5 star hotels. It was perfect in every way. The cave home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. I wish I had that bathroom in my own home. The shower is divine. The owners have... More

Two weeks since our return to real life after our week long stay at Gemela's Family Homes..My second visit..my friends first. We booked both Earth and Water House. It was a magical experience! A very big thank you to our hosts Irene and Adonis, who made every effort to make our stay a personal and wonderful experience..!

Do not waste your time looking for other places, book this one right now. It deserves a 11/10 and it is even better than what you see on the pictures. The location gives an amazing view of the caldera. It is extremely clean. The welcoming basket is big enough to last the entire 4 days. The fridge is filled with... More

Could not fault a single thing everything with Gemelas everything was just perfect. Food provided for "first breakfast" which included meat, cheese, bread and various snacks, tea and coffee was enough to last a week! Owners were a beautiful honest couple who went out of their way to make our honeymoon stay perfect. Pool was great and very private, location... More

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.
