The villa has no theft insurance, security system and is located in a distant and dark area. Bad, bad!!
Yes, I mean it. The sunrise, beach and private pool. Marou being the most awesome host I've ever met. Being free to eat or cook whenever we get hungry because why not, there is a kitchen with electric stove, fridge, toaster, complete utensils, etc. And since they own a restaurant, we did not think twice but to try it. We had the food deliver to the villa because right after we checked-in, we chose not go anywhere else (you need a car to go to Fira) but to relax and enjoy Marou's place. We had a comfortable sleep then. So cozy and clean, we felt so at home! Booking for a tour, driver or car rental will not be a problem because Marou can help to take care of everything, just like what she did for us. It was perfect! Without a doubt, the next time we'll go back to Greece we will book Abelomilos again. More power!
This beautiful villa is a hidden gem on the Santorini island sunrise side. The morning sunrise over the sea was so, so spectacular. The peaceful villa is especially suited for families.The location is a off the beaten path; you will need a car to get to the villa as well as to get around the island. Maro, the host and owner, and her father were super friendly. We met them at the villa to give us the keys. The villa is very well appointed, with a full beach view, peaceful, and very private. Easy drive to Oia (or anywhere else; the island is small). We went in Oia for sunset and woke up in this villa for the sunrise.
They filled the refrigerator to provide us a big breakfast, gave more towels on demand, cleaned the pool daily and attended us well. The kitchen is equipped. Maro provided complimentary bottled water and breakfast ingredients (eggs, bread, jam, bacon, orange juice, coffee, etc). There was also a welcome fruit platter on the table. This villa in many ways was better than staying in a five star resort!
A dream come true! Who doesn't want their own private villa looking out over the sea. The pictures are as accurate as possible, but the real thing is so much more amazing. I travelled with my mom and son, my sister, brother-in-law and their youngest son. Our stay at Maro's family's place was the last stop on a long vacation, 3 weeks for half of us. Traveling is fun and exciting but also exhausting. When we arrived at Maro's villa, you could tell we all immediately relaxed and felt at home. It's off the beaten track as described, it's on the sunrise side of the island. Some member of the family got up every morning to see the sunrise. Spectacular! The villa and the grounds were immaculate and the fridge stocked. We could tell the Maro put a lot of thought into the goodies she left for us. In fact, we didn't leave the first day and had plenty of food and drink for all of us that night and for breakfast/lunches throughout our stay. Maro and her family were very accessible and readily gave us advice about where to go on the island, and what not to waste time on. We loved her and her family's enthusiasm about Santorini, the mom's restaurant (Roza' Taverna), their vineyard and their trips to the states. As much as they told us about the islands, it was very hard to tear ourselves away from the villa with our own private pool and beach just below. In fact, we stayed in one night, bar-b-cued (after getting advice from Maro about food shopping) and had a glorious meal outside over looking the sea and stars. I could go on and on, we definitely want to return to Santorini and if we do I can't imagine staying anywhere else but at Abelomilos Exclusive Villa. So nothing is perfect, but the villa is close. Seriously, the only thing I can think of the could be improved on is the wifi consistency. Maro and her family take such loving care of the villa, that you want to do the same in return. It's a very comfortable oasis, you just don't want to leave.
After a busy few days in Fira we were hoping that the villa lived up to its description as a peaceful retreat; we were not disappointed. Abelomilos stands on the cliffs right above the rocky beach with wonderful uninterrupted views down the coast. Sitting under the covered terrace the only sound is of the waves crashing on the beach even though the road to Oia/Fira is only a few hundred metres away from the property making it easy to reach other areas on the island. There is ample outdoor space with a lovely pool which is cleaned daily by Maro's father and lots of places to sit and relax. The constant sea breeze/wind kept things comfortable even in the heat of summer and the air conditioning inside worked well The villa is kept immaculately clean and you are also provided with a fridge full of goodies to keep you going for breakfast. Maro is extremely friendly and helpful and you must try eating at her mother's taverna, Roza's, about 5 minutes or so away - excellent food. We would highly recommend the villa and hope to return.

Abelomilos Exlusive Villa is a great experience of cosiness and hospitality. Marousa and his family do everything what's in their power to make you feel comfortable and help you wherever they can. The newly built villa and the spotlessly clean rooms was cleaned every day and towels changed daily. The pool and the rooms was absolute lovely and the owner was always available . Embedded in a beautiful surroundings of only the blue sea view, without tourist shops and noisy bars, it is a lovely place to relax and forget the whole world for a while, but also a good starting point for discover the magical santorini island. We will definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family!!
Tip: Marousa mother (Roza) have the best Greek Tavern at Santorini you must visit it..
