“Good accommodation in Oia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Room is big. Have everything you need. Transfer service for free which is great! Better if the pool could open earlier / close later (9am-8pm atm). The pool is great but as a traveller may not have time to use it during these hours.

Recently returned from a 2 week stay in Marias Place in May 2012. I cannot praise the whole place too much. We were met at the airport by the owner Kostas who gave us a brief run down on Santorini on the trip to the accommodation, roughly about 45 minutes depending on time of day. At the apartments we were met by Anna Kostas' partner who gave us a warm welcome with a cup of coffee. We were then shown a number of apartments on the ground floor (which we requested) perhaps this may not be possible in peak periods. The apartment was spotlessly clean with the usual Greek facilities, hot ring, microwave, plates and cutlery etc, double bed, safe deposit and air conditioning (which came within the price so no added extra costs) and with the most spectacular views across the pool out to sea and a nearby island. The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels as required.Throughout the stay Anna supplied us with coffee and cakes when we met up and was a mine of information on the island. The apartments would supply breakfast by prior arrangements. There was no bar which was fine as there were plenty of eating and drinking places within a short walk. The sunset views from the apartment were nothing short of spectacular, which you could access from your veranda. It is only a short 10 minute walk to the centre of the village Oia which has everything you want albeit a little expensive. Both my partner and myself would fully recommend this accommodation but if you want to book (direct as we did) be quick as it is only a small complex and I assume that it will fill up quickly. We hope to return.If you are interested in the island please see my separate post on Santorini.

Room Tip: All rooms have spectacular views !!

My husband and I stayed at Maria's Place (hosted by Anna and Costas) for 6 days, and they were very friendly and accommodating. They give great recommendations about the island: places to see, places to go, and places to eat. They can set up a car for you if you so choose, and they are always trying to make you comfortable and offer coffee or tea (which they do NOT charge for, this couple won't try to cheat you!)

The location was really nice. It wasn't in town, but it was a short walk from Oia, and an easy bus ride away from other locations in Santorini. You have a great view of the sunset from your balcony/pool area, in case you don't want to fight traffic in Oia.

The apartment has a kitchen which is fully equipped. Very neat and clean furnishings, and they clean your apartment every day. I highly recommend Maria's Place, and when we go back to Santorini, we will stay again.

On April 2012 we spent five days hosted by Anna, Kostas and all those lovely cats they care for. Just give a quick gaze to the other reviews: no exaggeration when everybody praises this couple, their warmth, sympathy and kindness, not in order to flatter the client (as it often happens round the Mediterranean), but because Anna and Kostas are a really swell couple made out of good-old-times Greeks.
We rent two studios at ground level: one for my partner and me, the other for my mother (age 81).
Because of her problems in walking and climbing, I had been very concerned about the access and the comfort provided by the hotel. We realized that Maria's place offers the best to those who want to stay in a relatively high area of Santorini, whithout being obsessed by stairways. The studios are comfortable for two people, clean, towels changed every two days; the kitchen is basically equipped for four persons. The shades let the morning light enter the room, therefore if you need the total dark in order to sleep, remember to bring a folding mask with you.
The double bed is extremely comfortable for those like us who need a hard, well tense materass. But we know that kyrà Anna provides softer materasses to those who prefer them.
During our staying, there was only one other studio hosting a couple, and it was not swimming pool season; if you plan a high season holiday, probably the same top standard of calm cannot be garanteed.
The view is excellent, although on the opposite side of the Aegean than the caldera. The location is off the main street, which is noisy, busy and dangerous for pedestrians; although, in a ten minutes walk you are in the core of Oia; in five you have a spectacular panorama on the caldera; again in five minutes you can strall around the lovely settlement of Finikià (and eat at the taverna "To Krinàki", which deserves a visit!).
Actually, you get all this and more, saving up to 50% on what you should pay for an equivalent quality hotel viewing the caldera.

Excellent place for budget travelers, not only the best position just a few minutes walking to centre of Oia, but also the warmeas help from Anna, like Mum. Ofcause the room is clean and there's small but useful full funished kichen. It's great place specially compare with the price.

Moreover, Anna, sister-inlow of Marias, also manage Eurocar rent in the airport, took care of me like Mum. She's not only the owner of the place but also the total helper or adviser of Oia.
If you have any bad event of accident during the travelling, and you stay at Maria's place, you do not need to warry about it...

If you have any chance to stay Oia, stay in Maria's place.

We just spent 5 nights at Maria's Place. It was amazing! It was clean and comfortable and very affordable - very, very nice, in a beautiful location just outside of town. Most amazing was that we felt like we were visiting friends (and if we make it back again, we will be visiting friends). Kostas and Anna went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to suggest places for us to go. Since it was off season, this was wonderful - it was difficult for us to figure out which places were open on our own. Every suggestion they gave us was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back some day soon!

This place was even "green" - more so than you find in the United States. The power, etc. is set up so that the heat or AC will not run if you have the doors open - what a great idea!

We highly recommend staying here!

These ample rooms provide all the essentials that you need without the hefty price tag of other hotels in Oia. You can avoid the massive crowds that flood into the main section of town to watch the sunset, and instead enjoy it from your poolside view. Its about a ten minute walk into the heart of Oia, so the joys of the quaint village around far away. Kostas, the owner, was very hospitalable and provided transportation to and from the ferry, which saved us at least $50. Overall, it was a wonderful stay!
