What can we say about Maria & her lovely family... I have never met an Innkeeper with such love for her guests. She really makes you feel like family. We stayed about a week in an ultra clean & comfortable room. Her Husband Nico picked us up at the airport & upon our arrival at Villa Rose, Maria welcomed us with her warm smile, her sweet daughter Kyriaki, offering us something to drink & a snack. Maria gave us maps & info on tours and such. Everyday our fridge was stocked & wine too! She helped arranged a car rental for a day, the rest of the time we took the bus. The stop was located just a few steps away & runs every 20mins. The pictures that we saw of Villa Rose & Santorini came to life. We highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at Villa Rose for 3 nights and though only there for a short stay we were welcomed literally with open arms. Maria and her family were so welcoming and kind, from picking us up at the port, suggesting and booking excursions and restaurants, and stocking the apartment with breakfast supplies and snacks, we were blown away by the great service we received. Maria wouldn’t even see you sat by the pool with nothing to eat, hand delivering bowls of nibbles! Whilst Villa Rose does not have a Caldera view, it is only a ten minute walk away (as is the bus station with connections to the rest of the island) and we actually found it quite nice to get away from the tourist crowds. There is a small pool, not really suited to serious swimming but perfect for a cool-off dip at the end of a day’s sightseeing! Our room was beautifully decorated, up to boutique hotel standard and cleaned with obvious care and attention daily. Whilst we didn’t do much cooking the kitchen was really well equipped if we had wanted to. The bathroom deserves a mention on its own, with a fantastic walk in shower. As previous reviews have mentioned Villa Rose is situated on a busy main road but we didn’t really notice any noise from it, even when sat out on our balcony. Santorini itself is so breathtakingly beautiful that I’m sure we’ll be back and when we are we’ll look no further than Villa Rose!

The MOST hospitable owners I have ever met in all my years of travelling! Constantly offering drinks while sitting by the pool, a fridge stocked daily with food, wine in the room and MOST importantly, so easy to approach at any time to ask the many questions we had. Free airport shuttle is a bonus especially when suffering jet lag!
The entire place is SO-O-O clean! Watched Maria scrubbing the outdoor furniture one day and not only the linen but even the bedspreads are washed!
A very short walk to Fira town (just watch out in sections where the footpath "disappears"). A MUST eat restaraunt in the narrow streets of Fira is "Nikolas" restaraunt - no caldera views BUT the best food - just notice the queue of people waiting to get in late at night!
Driving around Santorini was not as stressful as I'd thought so it was a great way to see the island in a rental car organised by Maria. Ask for the must see places or you will miss the amazing "Eros Cafe" at Vlyxada beach.
Highly recommend Villa Rose!

From the moment we arrived the port of Santorini, we already knew that the owners, Maria & family will go the extra mile to ensure we had a great time in Santorini...and we did! Upon checking in, Maria explained about where we could go around the island without leaving out details on our bus rides, directions & recommended some restaurants that were reasonably priced. Our room felt like home...food for us to prepare our breakfast were stocked up daily. We love the decors of the room & the reception room...the wall with thank you notes, we call it, "Letters to Maria" just showed how many guests have enjoyed their stay in Villa Rose. Simply pleasant!

Maria was there at the airport to pick me up and it was a very short drive to the hotel. I only stayed one night and Maria and her family made me feel very welcome and comfortable. My room was very inviting and full of treats and wine. They were so helpful and they even drove me to the cruise ship port the next morning. I would definitely stay at the villa rose again next time I'm in Thira.

Very friendly and extremely hospitable hosts, we felt so warmly welcomed! Maria came to pick us up at the airport and gave us so much information about the island. The fridge was filled with enough stuff for breakfast, besides the bottle of wine and cakes waiting for us at the table were a nice touch. You can easily walk to the town centre and there are a few restaurants and supermarket nearby. The only small downside was that if you leave the window open you'll most probably be bothered by the noise street, otherwise a great place to stay in Santorini!

Maria and her family were wonderful hosts and helped us in any way imaginable. We enjoyed our stay incredibly and would recommend anybody else to stay at this lovely place. We were staying in room nr. 4 which was comfortable, well equipped and had the nicest bathroom with the greatest shower, ever seen in Southern Europe!
The building is located at the busy road to Fira, so don't expect a quiet and calm getaway. However, it is only a short walking distance away from the very center of Fira and the bus station.
