“Perfect place to stay right on the edge of Oia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We enjoyed an entire week on Santorini. Anna was always happy to help, made reservations for us and recommendations on restaurants and activities. It is a short walk into the busy area of Oia and great to be out of the crazy tourist area. Very quiet for sleeping with a sea breeze coming through the window each night, we never needed the air conditioning. The pool is nice and clean and there are plenty of chairs to lounge on. We had cleaning service daily, fresh towels and sheets and pool towels provided when we inquired about them. Also, they will transport back and forth to the airport which is very nice and a big cost savings. Anna was always concerned about our comfort and was a great hostess.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartments get a nice breeze and also have patio areas

First, we were picked up at the airport and driven back to the hotel. Anna the owner went out of her way to make us comfortable, suggested tours and made arrangements for us. The rooms are a few minutes walk from the main area in Oia, we loved the walk back and forth to Oia. We were able to cook our own breakfast using the microwave and panini grill for toasts. The grocery store is just a few steps away. The bus stop is around the corner. We would definitely return to Maria's place. The WiFi connection was weak and intermittent. The bed was a bit hard, but OK. The place is spotless and the pool side great.

We stayed here for three nights in September, and really enjoyed our stay. The proprietor was immensely helpful, and made excellent recommendations for activities and places to eat. The room was very spacious, and included a safe box for locking up valuables. The room comes with a kitchenette, including pots and pans and dishes, and a microwave and fridge. The ground floor rooms have their own balconies overlooking the pool. It is within walking distance of Oia. We really liked this place a lot.
Downsides: The pool is freezing. If someone loud is staying above you, you can hear everything. The wifi is slow. The beds are not comfortable. The couch was more comfortable than the bed. (I think uncomfortable mattresses are normal in Greece though. Every place we stayed had terrible mattresses.)

We stayed here for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it! The pool has very good position to watch the sunset !the room has everything u need from AC to kitchenette and safe box! Really big size rooms and very comfy bed! The price is also great as u r minutes away from the point of the best sunset of the world ! If u coming to santorini u have to stay here unless if u want to spend a fortune to expensive hotels! For sure ill stay again here and I strongly recommend it!
The owner offers a free pick up and drop off from/to the airport/port which saves you lots of money!!!

The owners bent over backwards to make our stay incredible.

Vue wasn't great, however, if you want a place you can stay by the nice pool or your poolside apartment in the day and then are a beautiful 2 min walk from the main pedestrian part of the beautiful village, this is your place.

Amazing island and lovely place to stay. Our host was so nice and careful. The place is very charming, clean and very good located. We had a balcony and a beautiful view on the famous sun set. Maria is a very lovely person. I cried when I left this place. I really recommend it. Thank you Maria.
Un séjour magique. Une hôte très sympathique et qui prends soin de ses clients. L'hôtel a beaucoup de charme, propre et agréable. Nous avions une chambre avec balcon et vue imprenable sur le fameux coucher de soleil. Maria est une très belle personne. Je recommande vraiment cet hôtel a Oia.

Oia is incredibly expensive so when we found Maria's place was a reasonable deal for a room with kitchen and swimming pool for the kids. Plenty of room indeed, very clean, and they clean it every day, but dishes are missing to do real cooking and serve a family of four. We liked the room really. Location is okay. Owner is proud of the view but it is of no interest when you just came from another island as beautiful as Amorgos.
