“Great times at Villa Dakaronia”

I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Dakaronia for 3 days with my husband and 2 friends. The villa is lovely with a large terrace to relax on and a beautful patio to watch the spectacular sunsets. The hosts, Joanna and Memos, were very caring and kind. Our sightseeing trip with Memos was great and he even drove us down to catch a late ferry many hours after checkout. Our stay here was a highlight of our holiday and we will are definitiely planning to return.

“Amazing Views”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We loved Villa Dakoronia. We couldn't have picked a better location, view or hosts.
Will definitely visit again.
Joanna and Memos were excellent hosts and arranged our travel to and from the airport even at inconvenient times. They gave superb recommendations for restaurants in the area and things to do and see. Thanks for an amazing trip!

“Superb place to stay”

With friends we stayed here for three nights recently. The owners Memos and Joanna are wonderful hosts. Location is excellent - just a short walk to the bustle of Thira but without the noise of the nightlife. We enjoyed late afternoon drinks on the balcony watching sunsets before wandering along the cliff top lanes to one of the many terrific restaurants for dinner.
The accommodation is just as listed and the hosts are superb. We spent a day with Memos driving us to some of the many island attractions, finishing with a wine tasting at Santos winery - not to be missed if you enjoy wines. Memos' driving is very safe and the day gave us some fascinating insights into the island's history and culture.
This stay was a highlight of our 2 weeks in Greece.

“A fantastic experience”

We had the most wonderful time staying at Villa Dakoronia. Memos the owner looked after us during our stay and he was unbelievable. From always being available for all our needs, to taking us on a tour of the island and a great seaside authentic restaurant. He even helped our family celebrate an anniversary with a special cake. He was totally committed to making sure our stay was a 5 star experience. The apartment is exactly as shown on the site, excellent and location and outlook superb. This is a must stay place, could only think of one think we could of had on some hot days, a swimming pool, but Memos is planning to build this over winter. Thankyou Memos!!

“Wonderful vacation experience”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay at the villa in July was spectacular from the moment Memos picked us up at the airport until the day we departed. They were the most gracious of hosts and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The villa was very accommodating and the little extras Joanna provided daily were so nice!! Our hosts made this feel like a home away from home.
The view from our rooftop deck was breathtaking, including the caldera and all the cruise ships daily.
If you want to see Santorini, this is the place to stay.

“Truely Spectacular”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From the moment we arrived, Joanna, Memos and Joseph made us feel like family. You cannot find more gracious and helpful hosts. They are exceptional. The villia is beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located. We did not want to leave and hope to return. You cannot select a better place to stay.

“Location, location, location !!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Beautiful villa, amazing location and great owners only begin to summarise this villa. I have just returned from a week at the villa with a good friend.

We were met at the airport (despite a late arrival time) and taken to the villa. The villa is situated near to the cliff edge in Fira and it is only a few minutes walk to the centre of Fira. However this walk can be delayed by the many people wanting to take pictures of the view, which is mind blowing.

The Villa was spotlessly clean and tidy and had all the amenities you could want. No request was too small and I thank the owners for sourcing a U.K. Power adapter for me. Both bedrooms are of a very good size with loads of storage and air conditioning. The villa also had a safe although it never felt as though it was needed. It is worth mentioning that the bedroom on the upper floor and also where the private balcony is does require the negotiating of a slightly challenging stair case which is virtually vertical. It was certainly easier without champagne ;)

The owners are full of great recommendations for places to eat and visit, I would endorse "idol" for dinner in the evening, we had 2 lovely meals here.

We loved staying here and have taken away many fond memories....thanks :) x
