Spacious family house for 4, with a fantastic view of the caldera, greatly located close to the main walking path of Oia. On top of that, the hosts Irini and Antonis are probably the friendliest people in the business. If one wonders how tourism was in Greece before the traditional Greek values of hospitality were replaced by profit-oriented thinking, this... More

Stayed here on the tail end of a three week trip through Greece. Would love to be able to give a higher review because the property is pretty and has been very well restored, but it was not what we thought we were getting, not what we paid for, and I don't think the details are clear. Basically, there are... More

Gemela's Family Homes is a must for anyone visiting the picturesque island of Santorini. We stayed in "Water" a family home with 5 star luxury for a wonderful week. Adonis and Irene were the perfect hosts and provided outstanding customer service. They answered all emails and questions promptly before our arrival. They organised transport from the airport to the property.... More

Gemela's family home is exactly that but with the luxury of a 5 star hotel. You can tell how much the place and your experience in it means to Erini and Adonis, it is a beautiful home in the most stunning location and they just can't do enough for you. The location means not only is it peaceful with uninterrupted... More

Hard to find any fault with this place. Irene genuinely wanted us to have a memorable stay in the home. She told us of its history and meticulously went through everything we needed to know to take advantage of all that was there including the use of a laptop computer and printer provided. She also told us to call her... More

it's been said many times in other reviews below but yes, Gemelas was perfect! We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon after 15 days traveling through Switzerland and Italy. We arrived in Oia to find Irene and Adonis waiting at the drop off point for us and helped us down to the villa with our bags. We had... More

We cannot say enough good things about Gemela's. This is hands down the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at and that would include 5 star hotels. It was perfect in every way. The cave home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. I wish I had that bathroom in my own home. The shower is divine. The owners have... More

Do not waste your time looking for other places, book this one right now. It deserves a 11/10 and it is even better than what you see on the pictures. The location gives an amazing view of the caldera. It is extremely clean. The welcoming basket is big enough to last the entire 4 days. The fridge is filled with... More
