This was our first trip out of the country and we could not have been more happy with Maria's Place. The location is perfect! Far enough from the hustle not to be bothered by crowds but close enough to walk to the nearby sites. Anna is AMAZING! She saved us tons of money with her recommendations... So much we did not need a tour guide. We rented an ATV and traveled the island with a map. The rooms are clean, cozy and the pool is fantastic. I can't wait I go back.

With the fantastic views that Maria's place has, looking out to the Aegean and some of it's islands, you would think that it would cost a lot to stay there. Anywhere else in Greece you would have to pay a lot more money for what is on offer at the apartments. On my first days stay, I saw a couple arrive and they were disappointed that the view wasn't of the caldera. They obviously hadn't read about it on tripadvisor as we had done so often and got a good idea about what we would be getting. Rooms are spacious with air conditioning, the view of the sea from the balcony is fantastic and I would argue that the sunset is just as spectacular as the one you get from Oia. The swimming pool is excellent and well maintained and the whole complex is very peaceful. The apartments are located in a great place, just 5 minutes walk from little supermarkets and restaurants and the walk to Oia only takes 12 minutes to get to the traffic free, paved footpath which winds its way through the narrow streets of Oia, past all the shops and restaurants. Anna is a great host, very welcoming and gives out good information on things to do. They also offer a free airport pickup which saves a lot of hassle.
The view of the Caldera is undoubtedly unbeatable, but if you don't want to spend the amount of money that the hotels on that side are asking, book to stay at Maria's Place and take in a fantastic view from there. After all it is only a short walk to sample the Caldera view whenever you want to.

We stayed for only one night which was a big mistake, Maria’s place was amazing. Anna was so helpful and friendly and recommended we spent a day on a boat tour of the hot springs and volcano which is definitely worth doing (and good value).
Maria’s place had a great pool, facilities, room (including kitchenette) and location, which was a short walk from the more busy side of Oia.
Would love to visit again soon!

We have just returned from a one week holiday and can thoroughly recommend Maria's Place. We searched for hours to find reasonably priced accommodation in Oia before finding this little gem. The studios have everything you need for a comfortable stay and are well equipped. The kitchenette contains a little hob, kettle, microwave and sandwich toaster; all you need to make a simple meal but this will save you a fortune! Each studio has views over the beautifully kept pool and of the famous Oia sunsets, if you don't fancy the evening crowds within Oia. The centre of Oia is just a short stroll away and just 1 minute from the bus stop and the mini market. The distance from the centre made this a very peaceful and relaxing spot to stay yet within easy access to Oia, the most beautiful town on the island.
Anna and Kostas are both wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome, constantly checking we were happy and have everything we needed. They were kind enough to give us free transfers to and from the airport which is about 25 mins away.
Thank you so much for our wonderful holiday :-)

People reading the previous comments may wonder: It can't be. This is too nice to be true. Well, we did stay at Maria's Place from June 1st to June 7th 2013. And all positive comments are absolutely true. Yes, Anna and Kostas are wonderful people. Yes, they did help us as they did with all others who wrote positive comments. Yes, you can see the sunsets not even from your balcony but also from your bed. (We were in room 7). Yes, this place is a model of cleanliness. Yes, it is close to everything while being a quiet place. And I could go on.... We highly recommend this place. If you're looking for the BEST place in Oia, don't hesitate. A big hug to you Anna for everything you did to make our stay memorable.

Room Tip: Don't worry, all rooms are excellent
