“Beautiful Beyond Words--The Villa and The Host”
Reviewed May 12, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

Having left the Astraea House in Santorini 2 weeks ago, I could still see in my mind the calm silent Aegean Sea from the veranda, where I hung out each day when the afternoon begins to cool and the sun begins to descend. The scene was pure zen. Day 2 I actually dropped to my knees to praise God for this blessed experience. Over dramatic? Not at all; please go see for yourself.

Six friends arrived at Santorini Airport. Walked to the taxi stand, took 2 taxis 20 Euros each. Both drivers dropped us by Fira center--wrong! Should have been Firastefani. Property host Ms. Marianna Vazeou (a wonderful person beyond words) later explained we could have phoned her at the taxi stand to have her speak with the drivers about the location. But the rest was bliss. Marianna's porter helped us with our luggage to the villa going and leaving; she arranged our pick up back to the airport; she assisted us with our pre-flight luggage storage issues; as she had time that evening, she even sat and chatted with us until the van picked us up at 10 pm!

Exit villa, turn left to walk the scenic stony path to Fira, not far at all. I enjoyed several meals of grilled whole sea bream fish with fries (9~12 Euros). Exit villa, turn right to the path leading to the Firastefani bus stop. Buy fare (less than 2 euros per person each way) on the bus to Oia to see the blue dome churches.

We bought groceries at Oia to make soup and omelets back at the villa. Unforgettable.

“Very Private & Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

This thing I loved the most about this villa was how private it was. It was about 15 steps up from the walk way and behind a locked door with nothing else above us. The jacuzzi fits 6 people comfortable. You don't want to leave that veranda because you can see the sun set right from it. Both kitchens were fully equipped. The upstairs level has a queen size bed & 2 full size beds. The pictures are true to life. I would like to also mention that the customer service from Maianna & Gregory was superb!

“Phenomenal Experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Santorini was my family's dream vacation destination, and this vacation rental was perfect. We traveled with 4 adults, 1 teen, and 2 10-year olds. The villa was more than enough space and we loved the layouts of the room.

The area the villa is in is really nice- it's close enough to Fira (3 min. walk) but is far enough away to have a "lazy island" vibe. There's a ~15 steps staircase that leads to the gate, which opens up to a private balcony. The view is spectacular! I couldn't believe my eyes when looking at the caldera. The balcony also has a jacuzzi and outdoor table and lounge chairs, and is large and spacious. It also has outdoor staircases leading to the top rooms.

The villa itself is beautifully decorated, and all the bedrooms are different but in the same style- bright, bold colors and simple furniture. There's a living room, two kitchens, three bathrooms, and a couple smaller balconies at the top! When sunset time came, all 7 of us spread out around the villa and stared straight ahead- there is no better place to view a Santorini sunset than from this villa.

I wish we could have spent more time there, but I will definitely return! I would highly recommend choosing this villa over the manny regular hotels on the island, especially for large groups!

We just spent a week on Santorini....It's the most beautiful place.
We were fortunate enough to find "Astraea House" with only a moments notice as our booked accommodation had been canceled without notice.
Natali and Mariana who manage Astraea House were so wonderful, doing all they could to help us with such short notice.
Suggesting Astraea House, a stunning home in prime position with everything you could hope for whilst on vacation... We loved every moment spent there and send thanks to all who helped us during our stay. With a special hug to Violetta our beautiful house keeper!
Thank you all so much and we look forward to returning to your beautiful Island one day.

I've traveled all over the world and Santorini has been a dream come true for me. What made it so memorable was staying at Astraea House. This amazing villa, Captain's House, provides you with the comforts of home and more and a 5 star luxury hotel experience. It has the amenities that your heart desires. It is ideally located in the center with walking distance to Fira and Firostefani, restaurants and other tourist destinations. It is an enchanting hideaway suitable for family and friends with the perfect view of the sunset and the Aegean Sea. The service they provide is out of this world. The villa was always very clean. Thank you Natali and Marianna for making our stay worth remembering. You are the best. Highly recommended!
