I can recommend Captain John in every way. It is really private (only 4 rooms available, and if you have luck, even less used). Positive: -Nice room. -Facilites like Kitchen to cook yourself -Privacy Instead of saying what is negative, I want to stress out who shouldn't go to Captain John. Not recommend if: -you want a lot of service... More

The hotel is not located in Oia center and take around 10-15mins walking to downtown, by walking to cattle for famous sunset need around 25-30mins. We rent a car here so we don't bother by walking. And if you hate to crowd with others you can also enjoy nice sunset view in captain john!!! In our 2night stays we went... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Captain John Traditional Houses and we found it to be the highlight of a larger trip covering Crete, Mykonos, and Athens. We had the option of staying in one of the three apartments or the original Captain John house. We chose the house and were very pleased with the accommodations. You entered into... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Captain John - it was the perfect place for our romantic trip and I couldn't recommend it more highly. We stayed in one of the Romantic Suites, I think they they are called, and it was lovely - very pretty, spacious, had everything we needed including a small kitchen. And the hospitality... More

We had a family holiday in Greece and chose to stay at Captain John in Oia in Santorini. We chose the apartment and a suite for four of us. Both were spacious with all the amenities one needs and a lovely balcony with an incredible view of the sea. The manager is Christina who is extremely helpful and has all... More

We love our stay at Captain John. Christina is so sweet, friendly and helpful. She helped us with the transfer to the hotel and recommended a full day bus tour of Santorini which we enjoyed. We also enjoyed all the restaurants she recommended. Although we spent six nights in Oia, we spent four nights at Captain John. Unfortunately due to... More

I booked Captain John's traditional Houses which came highly recommended via trip advisor. What many failed to mentioned was that there is a cemetery opposite the entrance to the inn, which is at the entrance near the carpark. It came as a huge surprise to us and spooked us out a bit each time we walk back from the town... More

This is a really wonderful place in the most amazing and beautiful location. Located on the side of the cliffs in Oia, our view extended over the entire town, the ocean and unbelievably beautiful sunsets. Captain Johns houses are wonderful apartments and the service was perfect. Wonderful memories for years to come, I'm sure.

I love this place. We (a couple) stayed in the Captains House on the upper level and the privacy, the space and the view are spectacular. You basically get a serviced appartment with a living room, bedroom, bath and kitchen. It is located at the beginning of Oia (Perivolas) and to the sunset event on the very north you would... More
