“This place was amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Besides the amazing view and the lovely accommodations, we were most impressed with the hostess, Katerina. She was amazing. The room was super clean, and the amenities were everything we needed. We stayed in an upper floor apartment with an extra loft bed area. The view was astounding. The room was perfectly situated to maximize the view, and the balcony was big and shaded. We love that we were not in Oia, which is the most touristy part of a very touristy island. We will definitely stay at Gaby again.

Basic spacious room. Spotlessly clean. Freshly painted. 10 minute walk to Fira. Fridge and A/C worked great. Didn't need to leave your key in the slot like we experienced at other hotels in Greece. Our king sized bed was two twins pushed together. Handheld shower is basically a plastic tray with no curtain. Added to the charm. Hostess arranged an early morning cab to the airport. We stayed on the top floor overlooking the famous blue doomed church and three bells. Would definitely stay here again.

We spent three nights at Gaby appartments and were delighted. The first two nights were in a ground floor room with kitchenette and the view from our room was spectacular. Gaby's is very clean, serene and relaxing. The bathroom was adequate but small with no screen between the shower and the rest of the room. If you plan on walking from the bus stop in Fira stick to the road until you reach Firastefani then take the caldera path a short way back towards Fira.

The view alone in the Gaby Apartments is worth ever penny.

The location is perfect between Fira & Firostefani (5-10 min easy walk up and down steps)

The rooms were basic inside and we had to go on an ant killing spree on night but the view more than makes up for it.

Lovely host too.

Room Tip: Top floor all the way

We stayed 3 night in Santorini and this place is a real pleasure. The most fabulous is of course the view on the caldera, on the sunset, close to the center. Really kind people, easy going. Room cleaned. I maybe just missed a bit more to cook but except that, all was perfect. A lovely terrace on the most beautiful view point.

We stayed for a week at Gaby's appartment and enjoyed every moment of it. With an excellent view of the sunsets, one felt like being on the top of the world, without petty disturbances like cars and traffic. Friendly hosts, quiet environment and within waling distance to almost everything you need. Highly recommendable.

This was a Lonely Planet recommendation that worked out brilliantly! Katerina waited up for us in June until 2am when the ferry arrived from Rhodes and let us into our wonderful apartment. Fantastic views, close to everything and a lovely hostess. Definitely recommend, have already given the contact details to other travellers.
