We stayed at the Thea Studios last August and it was beyond our expectations! The apartment was great. It was comfortable, having into account we were 4 adults and it was located next to restaurants, shops and everything in Oia. The only flaw we found it was actually not theirs, but the city's. The city cuts the water supply sometimes, so for showers you have to hurry just in case. And the Internet connection is really poor, but as Markos (the owner) put it, "why would you need Internet when you have this view?" And he was sooo right!!! The view from the apartment's balcony was breathe taking!!! And that was what we were looking for.
The owners were super helpful. Torun helped us a lot with bookings and recommendations. From our transfer from and to the port, to beach recommendations, tips and so on. Markos also deal with our car rental (when they didnt appear on time, he came by the apartment and helped us) and booked us a boat excursion to the volcano and sunset that was perfect!!!!
Markos and Torun have been of exceptional help from the moment we booked, and until our departure. They arranged car transportation from the ferry port to the studio very late at night, a rental car for our last couple days (touring the island is an amazing experience: beaches, wine tasting, etc.), Markos booked us a sunset sailing boat tour, and gave us advice on all things Santorini. The studios are very clean and I cannot believe the low price considering we were oceanfront and right on the caldera. Best location, VIEW and value, I hope to return soon! Thanks again so much for everything ;)
I am surprised to read the negative reviews below. We were blown away by the beautiful view from the terrace and that's all that really mattered to us. The location was perfect, just a few steps up to the Main Street of Oia. Torun was incredibly helpful and Markos was a lovely host when we arrived. We loved our stay and hope to stay again in the future.
I luckily found this rental at an amazing price. The view itself was worth every cent! The staff was very friendly and attentive to anything. They were very responsive and friendly. The day of arrival, I was met at the shuttle stop (which they arranged to pick me up) and walked down to my room and ran me through the room info, the city, tips on what to do and where to go, and even helped book my yacht sailing tour! The room itself was very basic, but very clean. The bed was comfortable and the AC worked great. The wifi gave me no problems and I was able to use it without any issues. I have nothing but good things to say about this studio. I am definitely going to miss that amazing view!
Stayed at Thea end of August into September for a week. Torun was really helpful in the booking stages & her replies were very prompt. Could not ask for more. On arrival at the airport there was a car waiting for us as requested with Torun & we were taken to Oia and met by Marcos - he & Torun are fantastic and are really great hosts.
Not sure why the two reviews below are so bad as what they are saying is utter lies really! No there is not a pool - it states this on the website! You can use the Lyorema pool which is in walking distance or, low and behold the SEA! No there is no parking however Marcos tells you on arrival about a place to park if you need to. Wifi was perfect the whole of our stay - not that we used it much as we were on HOLIDAY!!!
Its Greece so you don't get power showers like in the UK or USA - yes its attached to the wall and hand held, not a problem!! Its not 5* but then again neither is the price - its perfect accommodation with the most breath-taking view you will ever have.
A supermarket just up the steps where you can buy wine, beer, food, snacks etc - many a night we sat with a bottle of wine looking out over the Caldera & at the amazing view. LOTS of tourists stopped above us to take pictures of our view from Thea so its in a very enviable position! Thank you Torun & Marcos for an unforgettable holiday, we will be back!
I would have given negative ratings if I could. Where do I start? We knew its studio flat, small, no pool or parking. Let's start with pros - its in Oia & close to all shops. Also it was clean & has decent views of the Aegean sea & Oia white houses from shared balcony. But its stop there.
When we arrived on enquiring about free parking, guy seemed to least interested to guide us. Room itself is tiny not worth €420 for 3 nights. Other than few basic utensils & towels nothing else in terms of facilities. Shower was a joke as water dribbles down rather than actual shower, television not working apparently because of lighting, WiFi at best is equal dial up, I could not believe when I saw dish washer soap has water to last longer !!. Owner lives next door, seemed to object for using AC all night as water started leaking from it. I am using seems as I do not understand Greek. There was no introduction to the island at all in fact best guide I had it from the car rental guy!!
I would suggest stay outside Oia & come back in the evening for sunset & dinner than paying premium for absolutely nothing.
Lovely. Calm, clean, comfortable, stunning views and reasonably priced. Plus they were very helpful with information and taxis etc. All perfect. Couldn't have hoped for more. Loved it.
