We stayed 4 nights. First, Kostas picked us at 6:00 am at the airport and we checked-in before 7:00 am. Very nice, we could sleep a bit more! When we woke up Anna welcomed us with coffee and cake. She is very very welcoming! She suggested us activities, places to visit, and much more. She was always there to answer our questions. Maria's Place is a 5 minutes walk to Oia. The supermarket, the rent-a-car; where we rented scooters, and the buses to the volcano are nearby. The studios are very clean and the place is lovely. The pool is very appreciated after a hot day. Although they picked us at the airport, they would not drive to the port on our last day, we had to arrange something with the car rental company.

I and 3 others would recommend this place,
from Montréal, Canada

We stayed in May 2013 for a week and enjoyed every moment of our stay from the moment Costas picked us up from the airport free of charge. The rooms are spotless and arranged around a lovely pool,with views over countryside. Its just short stroll to bus stop, supermarket and 5 minutes to Oia. The bus connections into Thira are excellent. .We walked into Finikia and there were a couple of traditional restaurants that were different from the touristy ones in Oia. Anna was on hand in the office and always asked about our day,she can book trips for volcano boat tour and other trips.Again Costas returned us to the airport to end a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms had little terrace with patio doors, view overlooking pool.

It was our honeymoon and we are glad to stayed in this hotel. The owner - Anna - so friendly and cute women, we became friends after only one night of liviong there. The hotel is small and ideal for young couples and families. We have a view on the sea, at the other side then Caldera (hotel is located in Finikia). The rooms is clean and comfortable, with bathroom and small kitchen. Also there is one pool in hotel. So, we was happy to stayed in this hotel and recommended it to our friends and partners. Many thanks to Anna for a warm welcome!

I have spent 7 days at Maria’s Place in Oia with my daughter at the end of June and we absolutely loved it! The studios are very fine, well equipped, cosy and comfortable, wi-fi works very well and Anna & Kostas, the owners, are just the perfect hosts: doing everything they can to make you feel at your ease! It is set at the entrance of Oia, a few steps from the bus stop and the beginning of the walk on the Caldera, close to several mini-markets and bakery, just 10 minutes from the famous sunset place. We really do recommend this place to anyone searching for a good and quiet house in Santorini!

This was our first trip out of the country and we could not have been more happy with Maria's Place. The location is perfect! Far enough from the hustle not to be bothered by crowds but close enough to walk to the nearby sites. Anna is AMAZING! She saved us tons of money with her recommendations... So much we did not need a tour guide. We rented an ATV and traveled the island with a map. The rooms are clean, cozy and the pool is fantastic. I can't wait I go back.

With the fantastic views that Maria's place has, looking out to the Aegean and some of it's islands, you would think that it would cost a lot to stay there. Anywhere else in Greece you would have to pay a lot more money for what is on offer at the apartments. On my first days stay, I saw a couple arrive and they were disappointed that the view wasn't of the caldera. They obviously hadn't read about it on tripadvisor as we had done so often and got a good idea about what we would be getting. Rooms are spacious with air conditioning, the view of the sea from the balcony is fantastic and I would argue that the sunset is just as spectacular as the one you get from Oia. The swimming pool is excellent and well maintained and the whole complex is very peaceful. The apartments are located in a great place, just 5 minutes walk from little supermarkets and restaurants and the walk to Oia only takes 12 minutes to get to the traffic free, paved footpath which winds its way through the narrow streets of Oia, past all the shops and restaurants. Anna is a great host, very welcoming and gives out good information on things to do. They also offer a free airport pickup which saves a lot of hassle.
The view of the Caldera is undoubtedly unbeatable, but if you don't want to spend the amount of money that the hotels on that side are asking, book to stay at Maria's Place and take in a fantastic view from there. After all it is only a short walk to sample the Caldera view whenever you want to.

We stayed for only one night which was a big mistake, Maria’s place was amazing. Anna was so helpful and friendly and recommended we spent a day on a boat tour of the hot springs and volcano which is definitely worth doing (and good value).
Maria’s place had a great pool, facilities, room (including kitchenette) and location, which was a short walk from the more busy side of Oia.
Would love to visit again soon!
