“Perfect for Honeymoon!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Nice room, nice view, nice staffs. This is one of the best hotels I recommend for staying @ Santorini. The rooms are nice and clean. The view is unbelievable. The breakfast is great . I love yogurt and honey the most. And the lady staff is very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Lavender And Delphi are the best.

Almost everything. Deserves a perfect 10/10 according to me
- Perfect view of the Caldera and the Oia slopes from that point
- Delightful staff, superbly courteous and amazingly helpful
- Rooms have that idyllic cave-like ambience (with the stunning views from the balcony, you will hardly want to stay inside the room)

Onar Villas is everything you want out of a cave room experience on the island of Santorini. Tassos and the town of Oia. We stay in Villa Jasmine - fab view, perfect and clean and tasteful in every way. Awakened each moring by the clip clop of the donkeys climbing the stairs neaer the room -- better than a rooster IU say! Huge tasty each morning, and the absolute friendliest staff I have ever encountered! Incredible value -- eager to provide helpful hints for places that were open (We came in March - low season). The brightest sunsets in the world. A true "10" in every respect!

After much searching for the right place, we found Onar Villas in Oia. It was exactly what we were looking for... boutique, romantic, and personal. With only 5 units, the owner and staff make you feel right at home and give you the perfect balance of friendliness and privacy. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfast every morning on our terrace overlooking the beautiful caldera. The location was great giving us the picturesque Santorini experience we were hoping for.

We stayed in Villa Lily, which was cozy and very affordable. They've made a great use of space in the villa and did a wonderful job with the decor. I would highly recommend Onar Villas and we would love to visit again.

We are a group of 4 girls who had planned our Mar14 trip since Oct13 when we started to plan for Santorini. We all mutually agreed on Onar Villa due to its perfect star review and positive feedback on Tripadvisor. We booked through Booking.com.

As March was a low season period and paranoid about the local bus service and if we couldn't enjoy the whole island in 3 days, I liaised with Kiki and Tassos on car rental. They were quick to response and upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Vazeos Car Rental at the airport.

Our jaws dropped upon check in to the perfect view. Tassos greeted us with a map of Oia and recommended us to places to go and also on the route to the places.
We had breakfast with the fantastic view and they even served us our special request for a vegetarian breakfast.

The service was excellent and it was really a joy to come back to a clean and neatly arranged room after leaving an organised mess before we left for our activities and after coming back from it. Everyone was friendly and eager to assist.

Location was spot on as it is a walking distance to where the sunset is and the Oia, where you can visit the famous postcard view, purchasing souveniers and enjoy good food. We were there during the off peak period so most business were closed but you can still find decent food around the area.

We hope to one day come back or even better hope to read more stories from travellers who will share our wonderful experience in Onar Villa, Oia.

Beautiful property on the side of the cliff overlooking the volcano and caldera. Close to the road too, so you don't have to hike those steps every time. Walking distance to all the famous Oia shopping and restaurants! Tassos and his crew definitely do their best to accommodate any of your needs, and breakfast on the patio overlooking the whole of Santorini is something priceless in itself. They even overbooked the room, so we got upgraded to an even better room on our last night there. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a diamond in the rough!

Thank you Tassos!

My husband and I spent a wonderful 11 nights on Santorini in the middle of October to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. For the second half we stayed in Oia at Onar Villas. I won’t repeat everything that has already been said, but this is a wonderful place to stay, the villas are clean, well furnished and very comfortable. What a luxury to have breakfast served just outside your door! We enjoyed the nice, clean jacuzzi on several cool evenings. For us, just sitting on the terrace and watching the view, the ships, and the people was all the entertainment we needed. The location is great, just a short walk from the pedestrian area and not too far down the side of the caldera.

When we made our reservation, we chose Villa Olive, because it was the right size for us, the price was good and mostly because someone had written that the view was the best. We would agree! We also loved the bathroom in the old oven. That said, after three nights we were upgraded to Lavender for the last two. The view was still good, but we couldn’t see over to Fira and the cruise ships. However, the patio is more secluded and the sun was blocked at breakfast time, which was nice for us. Lavender is roomy, but someone who wants to book this for four people should realize that the second bedroom doesn’t have its own air conditioner and that it is off the bigger bedroom/ living area so there is no direct access to the bathroom. Also, the second bed is smaller.

Tassos, Laura and her helper were wonderful hosts, looking after our every need and always there to help or answer questions. Tassos gave us great tips to eat at the Sunset Restaurant down at the bay and also for Roka. We highly recommend both.

Our stay here was a memory for a lifetime and well worth every penny.

Room Tip: Best view at Olive!
