We booked the venetian and sailing suites for myself, my husband, and my parents. This left us the beautiful balcony to ourselves. We are all still raving about our experience here. I am incredibly detail oriented when planning a trip, and believe me when I say that this is the best place to say in Oia for this price. The... More

This was our favorite hotel in all of Greece! Because it is rated as a Historical Landmark, the building and all of the furniture is authentic from the 1800's. This house is shown on every postcard of Oia, Santorini. It is very famous so you will need to book in advance since there are only 3 rooms. They have taken... More

Takis and his wife could not have been better hosts. The historic house sits right on the caldera with a fantastic view. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the bay was a great way to start the day. Not cheap, but perfect location and well worth the money!!!

If you are looking for a charismatic hotel this is the place to stay. Very well decorated with attention to detail. We were met by the hotel manager and a man with a donkey who took our luggage to our hotel. It's a great location just off the main strip and quiet in the evening. What we will never forget... More

It's the stay of your dreams and everything you want from your stay in santorini. We stayed in a two bedroom cave suite with a jacuzzi and out very own sit out and balcony facing breathtaking views of the ocean. Breakfast was served on our balcony every morning! The suite was beautiful, staff were very helpful. Helped us rent a... More

It's hard to imagine a more beautiful place to stay anywhere, including in Santorini. Our room was an immaculately appointed and cleverly re-imagined hideaway with stunning traditional features (we stayed in the Cave Suite, 3 nights, using both bedrooms) with sweeping ocean and village views from the external private terrace where we enjoyed breakfast in the sun each morning. The... More

I cannot begin this review without first personally thanking Takis and his wife Demetra for providing us with such a spectacular stay during the 6 days we visited Santorini as part of our honeymoon; and if you are both reading this, our offer to show you around San Francisco whenever you come to visit still stands! :) So what is...

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

Located in the center of Oia. Very crowded area filled with shopping and excitement. Steps can be difficult if person has trouble walking. Breakfast was fantastic and served on a private veranda within the unit. We booked the "Cave Suite" , and it was beautiful and large. The grotto (hot tub) was actually a cold bath/spa. That part was disappointing,... More
