+On arrival to the villa it was a wow, private parking behind electric gates only 5 mins from the airport. Inside it was very clean & tidy the host showed us around, outside looked great as it was late we couldn't see much but the pool looked great. Its only at the most 20 mins from either end of the island, which was very convenient.Lots of room outside and seating. I did tell the owner that we only needed the maids once. - Having been to lots of villas over the last 15 years this was the first time i have had to order and pay for a welcome pack on arrival, 99.9% of the time they are included in with the price,which was not cheap. The kitchen was not very well stocked with equipment or pans. Outside we noticed that there was no shower which you normally use before using the pool to get rid of sun cream. Also i think the villa was built before the road was opened up as it can be a bit loud at times. As we did ask that the cleaners only to come once we were surprised to see them a couple of times, if they did need to come with the gardener to help they seemed to take a long time up to 3 hours so couldn't relax while they were there. Also on the photos there is a hammock which was not there, also an outside light near the door would be helpful when coming home late.

PROS -A very beautiful home on a very large property which is great for a family who want quiet time, and who have a hire car CONS -$70 per additional person per night = $630 for 3 other people besides myself (I refused to pay this) -Poor communication with the manager -Too far from the main center for the spectacular views, shopping, restaurants etc -Their page initially stated that you will receive chocolates and flowers on arrival and that there is a hammock (there is not) -EVERYWHERE in Greece that we stayed had complimentary beer and wine in the fridge, they did not -Internet is very poor -Air conditioner freezes certain rooms and creates a sauna in others, so choose your room wisely! -No access to the laundry facilities -Sheets had stains on them -Bathroom soap is not replaced, so bring your own -Bare minimum toilet paper, so bring your own -No tissues, so bring your own -No shaker to make coffee, so bring your own -Not enough bath towels, and no towels for the pool, so bring your own Having used many shared homes over the years this is the worse "host" that I have ever stayed with as basically once that have your money, they skimp on as much as possible which is sad as it is a beautiful property.

Beautiful house set in paradise. You hear the odd chicken and a donkey but otherwise very peaceful. Six of us spent a week here getting away from the rat race and it was heavenly. House is immaculate and cleaned daily for 2 hrs by two ladies. If into exercise bring trainers you can use the grounds to run in. We also brought nespresso pods and some bits for the first day or two. If more than 4 bring a li low or something you can inflate as only 4 sunbeds. We didn’t hire a car due to bad roads and mad drivers plus 6 of us. The gentleman leaves a mobile phone for local calls, taxis etc he booked Marryposa Royal Services for our airport pickup and we used them for the week and the service was amazing. Cabs aren’t v cheap on the island but €20 to Fira is grand. Tips: you can watch Netflix on the TVs. WiFi isn’t great. Book the cleaners when you plan to be out. Order takeaway from Tabasco they deliver everything from pizza to pasta. Take Marryposa tour of the island and forget a wine tour go to Santo Winery instead. And enjoy it’s heaven...,

Wow wow wow! I stayed at Zafira residence with my family for our wedding in the amazing Santorini! I couldn't believe it when we arrived the photos do not do this amazing villa justice we were blown away! Zafira the owner contacted me before we left the UK to introduce herself she organised our transfer from the airport and got us some groceries ready in the villa as we arrived late! Zafira is lovely the best land lady you could wish for nothing was too much trouble she contacted us every morning to make sure we were ok and to see when we wanted the cleaners to come, she organised our excursions, restaurant booking and return transfer to the airport! The villa is right near the airport but not close enough for it to disturb you it's nice to watch the planes coming in whilst lying in the pool on your lilo! The villa is absolutely beautiful 3 immaculate bedrooms with plenty of storage, main bedroom has a lovely ensuite and another bathroom! The kitchen has everything you need and the lounge is huge and leads out to the beautiful pool area! It was paradise waking up to the beautiful sunrise and sitting around the pool everyday for 10 days we really didn't want to come home! The cleaners came everyday and were friendly they did such a good job, fresh towels everyday. The villa has electric gates which were great and looked very grand, we hired a car and explored the island and loved coming back to the villa it felt like home! I will definitely be returning to this villa next time I'm in Santorini and would recommend this villa to everyone worth every penny! Zafira is an absolute diamond thank you for making our stay so special!!

Zafira is fabulous! She meet us at the airport and we followed her to this amazing Villa! She goes above and beyond! She treated us as if we were personal friends. You can’t help but love her! She was like your private concierge, booking excursions and restaurant reservations. Gave us Greek Cell to stay in touch throughout entire trip. Quick responses. Villa was clean and spacious. Pool was excellent! The grounds were beautiful. Even though it was close to airport and main road, you didn’t hear anything when inside. And it was still quieter than staying in Fira. I took several siestas out by the pool. Short 5 min drive to Fira for dinners. Would definitely stay here again if ever to return.

Nos alojamos con mi pareja y mis dos amigas en Zafira Residence. La casa es enorme, nueva, de lujo, con detalles hermosos y en un lugar perfecto. Esta a minutos del aeropuerto, de Fira (el centro) y de las mejores playas de santorini. Pero lo mejor de todo fue el trato y la atencion por parte de todo el equipo y principalmente de Zaphiroula y de Tasia que son dos amores de persona, que estan constantemente pendientes de que el cliente disfrute de su estancia en la casa como su estancia en Santorini. Se encargan de ayudarte en lo que sea, de recomendarte lo mejor siempre y de estar pendiente al minimo detalle. Una cosa que es muy destacable y valorable cuando uno no es local en el destino. Desde ya que les estamos agradecidos enormemente por habernos acogido tan gratamente y por supuesto volveremos a Zafira en cuanto podamos regresar a Santorini para disfrutar de la isla y de su maravillosa gente.

My fiancé and I stayed here for the week we got married in Santorini. The villa is absolutely stunning and was the perfect place to stay for our wedding week! Zaphiroula was on hand via phone/text whenever we needed her, and she arranged many things for us during the week that were above and beyond what you would ever get at a standard villa or hotel. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wants a bit of luxury!

This is a fantastic villa that is very traditional from the outside and very modern on the inside. Beds are very comfortable, showers are amazing, kitchen is well equipped and the pool is lovely for a daily dip. It has everything you need for a fantastic visit. They have amazing customer service and are always contactable for anything you need in the villa or for finding and booking trips around the island. They are very knowledgeable about anything you want to do on the island and will make suggestions and booking for anything you want to do. I would recommend this to anyone and hope we can visit again soon!!!!

This villa is a very special place! It's set in its own grounds with wonderful gardens but only a short distance from the airport and capital city Fira. Sunrise over the private, very decent size pool is well worth getting up early for. The owner Zaphiroula is amazing, very attentive if required, nothing was too much trouble for her and she is more than happy to arrange whatever trip, for example you want to take. She also supplies a local phone for you to contact her with during your stay. The villa is not only very comfortable and furnished to a very high standard, it has everything you could possibly need during your stay including very good quality indoor and outdoor wifi reception and is cleaned daily to a high standard with fresh towels and linens. I would definitely recommend this villa which would greatly add quality and comfort to your Sanatorini holiday.
