Maria and her husband are all very nice, and the room is so beautiful and comfortable. We left Santorini at night, her husband took us to the port even we were not their guests that night.

High recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: upstairs is more better, you can see the beautiful sky from window

My girlfriend and I spent a wonderful week in Santorini in late July 2011. Villa Rose was the perfect place for us to stay. A short walk to the tavernas and cafes of Fira and 15 minutes drive to wonderful beaches. The Villa Rose property itself is lovely. There are a number of balconies and outdoor areas to take in some sun and the pool is pleasant. Our room was clean and comfortable.

My friend and I stayed at Villa Rose for 3 nights while we were in Santorini. It was about a 10minute walk from Fira city center, right on the main road. Please take note that it does not have a caldera view but in Santorini not many hotels do. Maria, the owner and receptionist was the sweetest person! She gave us fantastic suggestions of where to eat and what tours to take. The free pick up and drop off at the port/airport plus the free wifi was very gracious and convenient. The free breakfast consisted of bread, jam, croissants, milk, juice and water in the fridge not a buffet (just be warned). I highly recommend staying here with a group of friends since it's close to the bars and shops in Fira center but to head to the Oia side of santorini for couples.

I have no doubt to recommend you to stay in Villa Rose when you are going to Santorini.
Very near to Fira. Friendly Staff.
Free transportation from Airport.
Able to stay one night only in Villa Rose as it was full.
My advice is to book as early as you can!

Firstly I HAVE to say that Maria & her husband were the nicest locals we met in the Greek Islands!
I booked one night about a month earlier - then we changed our minds and needed another nights booking - Maria worked it out so we didn't have to change rooms, although I think she was fully booked!
From the moment Maria met us at the airport I could tell she was a sweet gentle lady ... it was our first visit to Santorini so she was keen to help us and wanted us all to have a good time...
Our room (for 3 females) had a dble bed and a single - plenty of room and a small kitchenette stocked with bottled water, milk, juice, fresh eggs, croissants and cake. WOW we felt spoilt as we knew breaksfast wasn't included. The rooms were clean and comfortable and they also had an outdoor table & chairs so we could relax once we got home from our busy days.
Our room had airconditioning and a hair dryer.
There was a swimming pool - reasonable size, but we didn't have time to use it ... Maria also lets you check your emails on her computer in reception.
Location: We walked into town regularly - maybe 7 - 10 mins walk.
The service we received at Villa Rose was 'above & beyond' what one would expect.
On the last day we left our luggage at the Hotel, as we had a 10:30pm Ferry booked... After our busy day, Maria gave us towels & we used the outdoor shower, she also gave us tea, cake AND an ice cream - she didn't want us to be hungry on the Ferry !
Then her husband offered to drive us to the port so we didn't have to carry our heavy backpacks to the bus station.
If you're looking for a homely atmosphere with caring, knowledgable people, I would suggest you try Villa Rose. I'd definately return !
Thank you Maria, and your husband - thanks for looking after us in Santorini (even though we're grown women) - You have a heart of Gold and I wish you and your family many happy days!
from the 3 Aussie Girls !

Nice host, good and clean rooms, close to the center of Fira. Because we have two kids a swimming pool is very handy keeping them busy. The swimming pool of villa rose is quite small. So overall it is ok (compared to the price).
