I recently stayed in Marizan with my boyfriend. We had booked the private cave house and on arrival were greeted by Giannis (the owner) who told us that we had been upgraded to Villa Alexandros. This is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa with a huge terrace and private jacuzzi with fantastic sea views!
My boyfriend had booked the stay for my birthday so I hadn't read anything about Marizan before I arrived (I normally analyse Tripadvisor in great detail!) and it was such a fantastic surprise. Oia is a stunning place and Marizan has to be one of the very best locations in the village. The sunset views are spectacular and dozens of people line the streets above you to watch the sunset…you feel very special having a private area to watch the sun go down and sip some champagne!
The villa was really well equipped, it had a good kitchen which was filled with everything you need, from the basic pots and pans to an ice bucket and stand and great coffee machine. Breakfast was also supplied every day for you to enjoy on the balcony each morning - fresh bread, meat, cheese, yoghurt, orange juice, cereal…everything you need.
Giannis was very friendly and welcoming and brings you some local wine on the first night to enjoy the sunset with. He is also full of information and advice about things to do…we loved Oia and Marizan too much to leave though so we didn't mange to do any of our planned trips! The one activity I would definitely recommend is a walk down to Ammoudi bay for some lunch at one of the traditional restaurants, it's worth the 300 steps down and back up!
It is really great having the use of the pool next door, the drinks may be slightly overpriced but you ...it is also a nice spot for an evening cocktail.
Overall, an absolutely beautiful place - I would definitely recommend Marizan and we will certainly be back!
