Georgis Apartments
Ranked #28 of 74 Specialty Lodging in Oia
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I loved our apartment at Georgis'! It was very nice, clean, specios...oh, and this breakfast! All in all, it was a great rural experience... it gives you the privacy that no hotel in Oia can give you..but at the cost of 15min walk to the city. On booking.com it says it takes 10min but it is 10min to the parking of Finikia and not to the hotel...there are another 7-8min to the hotel itself which might get a bit tiring after a whole day of sightseeing, swimming, eating, drinking...what i really liked is that Georgis picked us up from the airport to the parking of Finikia and then the donkey took over our suitcases from the parking to the room...to be honest I felt really sorry for the animal but it looks like he has a good life taking into account his healthy look as well as the fact he was taken out of his comfortable "apartment" only when there was luggage to be transport from the parking! What I didnt like was that Georgis told us its only 25min walk to the see ... well the road is really not convininet (very steep and extremely hot) and the beach is more than terrible (only rocks, u cant even go in the water without shoes). Do not want even to discuss the way back uphill. I strongly recomend u to not try to walk by foot from Georgis to the beach

The apartments are located around 15min walk from Oia and has amazing views of the island. It was less crowded in Oia compared to Fira and we felt it was a more charming town so we were glad we chose to stay near Oia.

We had a small balcony/terrace and it was very nice to wake up to nice views in the morning. The rooms were clean and homely and had most of the appliances we needed.

The owner was super friendly and always willing to help. We arrived by ferry and left via the airport and he helped us arrange free transfers. Definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend Georgis apartments to anyone coming to Santorini.

I stayed at Georgis for two nights in August and had a lovely time here. George and his family, including Yatsus the donkey, were very friendly and accommodating. I emailed George our ferry details and appreciated his free transfer service. The room was nicely furnished and clean, with a spacious deck area for sitting and relaxing in the sun. The pool was great for a quick dip after a hot day walking and the breakfast each day was delicious - both Greek specialties and also the more standard fare. Georgis is about a 15 minute walk away from Oia but to be honest, this made our stay more enjoyable to escape the crowds. We enjoyed dinner at Santorini Mou Taverna just up the road which had great food and a fun atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks George and family!

We booked this hotel last minute because of an issue with another hotel that we were supposed to stay in while in Oia. The owner, Georgi, is very nice; he picked us up from the ferry and loaded our stuff onto a donkey to take our things to the hotel. The hotel is small but adorable, and the rooms are very nice and clean with a great view of the Mediterranean. Some of the staff has limited English, but they are all very nice and accommodating. The breakfast is really good--try the tomato eggplant dish! Georgi runs on Greek island time, a.k.a., he is sometimes late, but he will get you where you need to be.

The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Oia, but it is a very easy walk. We did not mind the walk for the value and charm of the hotel--stay at Georgi's!

As I go through the apparments and stumble into yet another little handmade decoration or a handy appliance or another remote yet perfectly dusted surface, I can barely resist the urge of running down to Tania and Giorgis and hugging them for being such perfectionist in what they do!!!
I mean, if you are the kind of person that does 150% at work you will appreciate when you see someone else doing what they do with such great attention to detail and love as well as it will probably make you feel very comfortable as you'd trust them to do the right thing overall.
In a nutshell it'a meticulously clean (think shower curtains, window curtains, facets and drains etc and other places that normally give away if the place is not really clean!), taken care of (little tastefull and practical handmade decorations all over) and thought through (decent blow dryer with both attachments, wet cloth hangers outside etc).
Finally, reading through the reviews I got a feeling things were improved according to comments, and I wanted to add a sugestion - a wall shower holder would be great :-)
Overall, 5 out of 5, will be back :-)))

Last week my partner and I stayed at Georgis Apartment. If you want to stay at a place that is family run, a part of the local culture, and conveniently located, then stay here.

The People: Georgis the owner is a kind and friendly man. He is efficient but always smiling and simply takes care of things. When interacting with him, it seems as though he is just looking to serve and money is simply helping to do so. Tanya, his partner and wife, made us a late breakfast as we were jet lagged and gave us a taste of Georgis's homemade wine. Nataly, their daughter, was smiling and laughing and quick to help us with anything.

The property is located in Finikia, which is walking distance from Oia (the most scenic part of Santorini). I highly recommend staying here as you get the beauty of natural Santorini within walking distance of some of the more toursity places.

Lastly, the terrace at Georgis's Apartment is stunning for a view of the sunset.

The apartments are hidden in local residences and you do need to walk for about 5 minutes from the car park but for us it was perfect! The walk to the apartments was quite pleasant with a view of typical Santorini houses and the ocean. We never got lost because the thoughtful owner marked the route to his place with blue arrows all the way from the car park. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and travelling in the peak tourist season. We were lost in crowds wherever we went. Georgis apartments are quiet and away from the Oia center where most tourists go to see the sunset therefore it gives you more personal space plus the sunset view on your own balcony. Public transport in Santorini is not very busy therefore it helped a great deal that Georgis offers pick up and send off services. He even has a donkey to transport our luggage from the car park to the apartments. We had a great time and really appreciated Georgis and Donia's hospitality!
