What a fabulous gem of a place! Nikos could not have been more helpful, and communication prior to booking was excellent. I had 5 days here on my own, and felt totally safe. The studio was just lovely, and had everything I needed plus more. The communal garden area was large and just lovely. The village of Finikia is very quiet, with the occasional donkey passing by. I ate at two of the tavernas in the village at night, which were excellent. Hopefully I will return! Thank you Nikos and Admir.
Everything was perfect! Nikos was a great host. I do recommend his place beautiful place located in a charming small village about 15mn walk to the center of Oia. The place is peaceful and just great to chill.
Super hosting. The house is cozy and make you feel like home with everything well- equipped. Located in a quiet area but with convenient transportation network and walking distance to Oia. Highly recommend. I will choose this again if I go to Santorini again.
My best friend and I had the most wonderful stay at Azalea Houses. We stayed for 4 nights in the ground floor unit. It is spacious, thoughtfully designed, spotless and has all the amenities we could possibly need. Finnikia village turned out to be a great location - just tucked away enough to get the village feel and yet close enough to walk to Oia centre. Nikos was the perfect host - he showed us the best places to go eat and gave us handy tips on getting around the island. Admir made sure our rooms were tidy and helped us with our luggage. We also made friends with a few neighbourhood cats and a dog. I really had the best time and will always treasure Azalea's warm hospitality. -SY
We were taken in with Finkia's welcoming warmth! Being greeted by neighbours on the road, island cats, great food on the balcony while the sun sets...sounds cliche, but it was truly picture perfect. Nikos and his assistant were amazing hosts, we felt they were really keen to make sure we were at ease and comfortable, giving us invaluable tips where to go and food is a big thing for Malaysians so we were not disappointed AT ALL. They also helped us when we realised our Ryanair (goodness never again) had a strict policy on printing out our boarding pass. We rented a car, which was useful to get us around the island and had no problem parking at the site. The apartment is really cosy - cool when we got back from a day of intense sun, and warm under the sheets by the time we woke up (clean sheets daily!) It was a first for us in a "cave" home so we have say be prepared for it. We didn't feel claustrophobic because the apartment is really spacey. And you can always nip out to the charming patio and sit under the pergola and look up at the bougainvilleas and the unbelievable blue sky. Azalea is a gem!…
