Great like 300 year old place to stay in - there are 4 different suites so be sure you know which one you pick. We stayed in the captains suite and it shares a common courtyard and wall with the reception - we didn't know this when we booked. While you don't have a view from your bedroom, as soon... More

We stayed here for the last few days of our honeymoon to experience Oia. The property is beautiful and the rooms are fantastic. We stayed in the Sea Captain's Suite which was absolutely beautiful- every single detail had been thought through. I would highly suggest this room. The breakfast was wonderful and included in the room rate. While this is... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cave Suite for 9 nights in June 2015 and had an amazing time. Takis and his wife Dimitri (hope I'm spelling that right!) are the best hosts and really took care of pretty much any needs we had, including making arrangements for a scooter for us, after we had been turned down for...

What an amazing place! The experience surpassed our high expectations. The views were incredible, the accommodations lovely, and the morning breakfasts overlooking the caldera delicious. Takis helped us navigate the island and made our stay so much easier by arranging our activities and providing very helpful information. His lovely wife Dimitra was sweet, fun and a delight to be around.... More

Before we arrived, the owner, Takis, was very helpful in making arrangements for our stay. The rooms were remarkable. The views were outstanding. The breakfasts were something that we will remember for a long time. The ony downside is that we were only able to stay 3 nights!

We stayed three nights in the Sailing Suite in early June 2015. Takis and his wife were excellent hosts, willingly and graciously looking after our every need. Our accommodations were superb. One of our best holidays ever! We would certainly return.

Perfect, just perfect, the setting, the, view, the vernacular architecture, the stylish interior design, the continuous flowing sculpted white surfaces, and the setting on the edge of the volcano and the deep dark blue of the Caldera lagoon. How good could it get? Takis and his wife are the most charming and helpful of hosts and over a delicious breakfast... More

This review is long overdo. I stayed two nights with two friends in September 2014. Takis (sp?) the manager was accommodating to every wish. When we arrived, he suggested a catamaran tour around the island, which was the highlight of the trip. He called and arranged everything. He also recommended dinner in Amoudi Bay, which he booked, as well. It... More
