Nafeli homes is at the highest points over looking Santorini the views from our balcony in room 11 were truly breathtaking.
Family owned & operated very eager to please,friendly& helpfull.
Bus stop is 2 min walk from hotel to Fira town centre for food & shopping or connecting buses to other parts of the island.
Buses run every 15 mins and are very reliable & affordable 1.60€ each way per person.
The donkey track from hotel to Fira town centre is advisable along the cliff face & is all down hill 20 min walk down slowly.
Nefeli homes comes highly recommended from us as your ideal stay when in Santorini.
The best sunset views are just 2 min up the road were the church with the blue dome roof is.
Consider Nefeli homes & you will be thankfully of my review.

BRILLIANT! Nefeli Homes has the best view in Santorini and in my opinion the best hosts. Joanna and her family were lovely and made you feel like you weren’t just a guest, but like family. The accommodation was sensational, clean, good service, good value, good location, helpful, perfect! They picked us up from the port, brought breakfast to our balcony and gave us a truly unforgettable holiday. If you are looking for a place in Santorini, look no further. Thankyou Joanna and family, we will be back again and we will recommend you to anyone we know travelling to the beautiful island of Santorini.Jamie, Aaron & Remie (Thanks for the wine!)

Great friendly helpful staff! Surprised to get picked up from the airport and transfered to the hotel and they took us to the port when it suited us as well all for free!
The view is to die for, literally took our breath away. Sitting in the sun on the terraces admiring the views and having a nice breakfast brought to you on a tray (also included in the price of the room!) was so lovely.
Didn't need to go anywhere, just went from the sun lounger to the pool and back, it was great and so relaxing.
The rooms are well set up, clean and tidy, nice and cool and also have air con, fridges etc. Comfy beds and a nice flash bathroom with horizontal water jets in the shower even! Again a great view from our private balcony.
Highly recommend! Couldn't fault it!

We didn't have any hotel reservation and we absolutely lucked out at the airport courtesy desk! She showed us pictures of this hotel, at the tip of the caldera, and we never thought we would find such a wonderful place on short notice. We did go just before high season, which I'm sure helped. We arrived at dusk and the view was breathtaking! We were picked up at the airport and shuttled to the hotel, where we were greeted and offered something to drink, which they brought to us on the balcony (no charge). Very friendly and eager to please. During our stay they went out of their way to help us in any way with phone calls and things like that. We enjoyed our breakfast served to us on the balcony each morning with a view that I'll never forget. I would highly recommend this place. It would be hard to beat this deal. It was the total package: Ambiance, nice rooms, view, amenities, helpful proprietors, & location.

I was there the last week in October, me and my parents and a couple of friends. We had two excellent and cute rooms.
We had a wonderful time; they pick us up from the airport which was great from their part.
Ioanna the owner is wonderful, she treated us great, and we all loved her.
The views from the caldera are breathtaking. I will definitely recommend Nefeli homes. Great service, great breakfast, cute rooms and great views.
Giasou Ioanna!!

I was recommeded to stay in Nefeli homes by Yannis of Adrianna, Naxos. Pick up was prompt at the New Port, and they have couple of hotels under their wing. The room that i took was a suite at a discounted price. The best thing about this small room is that its built into the cliff and the air inside is always cool. The view was breathtaking from the balcony.... and I thought that was the best view, but i was stunned in the morning looking at the mist playing hide and seek with the ferries below......

Simply a must see place. Nefeli homes was in one of the best locations and the owners were really friendly. I will definitely come back!

I was there last week for 4 nights with my boyfriend (we are 28 and 32 years old). We had room number 1 (I saw room number 5 though and i think it s the best). Although the room was for 2 persons it was huge!It had a large twin bed and two singles!The room gave you the feeling that it is somebody's home and had a traditional style.Generally it looked a little bit worn (eg. 3 lamps didn't work) except for the bathroom which was brand new and modern. Our balcony was the cutest ever!! Great view (buy little candles to put them in the lantern)!!

As far as the premises are concerned, they need renovation to some points as well.. e.g. worn sunbeds and in some cases torn.
The breakfast was very ordinary: Juice,yogurt,bread,butter,marmelade,honey,coffee and 3 slices of cheese and 3 slices of ham. The feeling having the breakfast though at the highest point of the island was perfect!

The reason i gave this hotel 4/5 is that the view is the most amazing of all the places in the island (Imerovigli has the highest altitude, higher than Thira and Oia) and it offers you a swimming pool to cool yourself when the sun heats you enough (other hotels nearby were more luxury but people were "burning" on their sunbeds since there was no pool. Hotels which were more luxury than Nefeli and also had a pool were extremely expensive,thats why i chose Nefeli).

I've been in this island for 3 times and the location and the view are undoubtedly the most perfect.

As far as the swimming pool is concerned don't worry for the size!!! Nefeli homes has 10 rooms and almost never were we in the swimming pool together with other people. Also if you notice the other hotels nearby (the ones that are on the cliff), the swimming pools are not big at all (maybe it s not so easy to make them due to limited space,cliff etc) . The swimming pools at this side of the island are more to cool yourself while having the breathtaking views, than really swim!!

Fira town was 15-20 minutes away on foot but if you take the sea- side route is the best walk you ever had!! You really enjoy it as you walk into little picturesque roads with traditional-island white houses with sometimes colourfoul roofs, and gives you the opportunity to take perfect photos of the Volcano, Imerovigli, Fira, Firasia and even Oia at some points. If you are on a hurry the bus stop is very close to the hotel(so is the supermarket). The buses can get you to Oia in about 10-15 minutes and in Fira town in 3-4 minutes.

The staff was very friendly and helpfull. They took us from the port and got as there as well when we left. It is a family-run business.

Generally i suggest this hotel for sure to couples and honeymooners who dont really care for very luxury stuff. I have to notice that if i didn't live in Greece and visited this hotel i would be even more excited about the whole thing(eg. even the old traditional-island style that the rooms are decorated with, is something usual and indiffirent to us Greeks but to foreign people is something really interesting and cute) because when you travel abroad you are more enthousiastic about everything!In fact I would have almost no negative thing to write.I would probably characterise this place (Santorini) and this hotel heaven on earth!!
