Other Things to Note
It is recommended to wear comfortable shoes and bring a light jacket or a windbreaker. It tends to get chilly after sunset. Cobblestone traditional paths and steps in all villages, high heels might damage your feet. All clean linen and towels are provided! As well as local "Nychteri" welcome wine, water, orange juice and filter coffee.
• Water is precious, there are no natural springs on this island. Tap WATER is desalination water from sea water. It cannot cause you any infection but it contains too much salt. It is advised to drink bottled mineral water.
• Santorini has a delicate sewage system, please do not flush any toilet paper or rubbish, use the special bin provided. Waste bin is just next to the toilet, It may sound odd but last year a guest flushed underwear and expect it to miraculously disappear! Naturally it created a blockage that took two days to fix! Help us keep the sewage system running!
• For HOT water please pull up the ‘BOILER’ levier [RED light ON], wait for max 20 min then turn it OFF & you are ready to take a hot shower!
• SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED INDOORS.
• Towels and sheets are to be used only in your studio. Please do not take them to the beach. It requires double the amount of energy and washing powder to clean them of the salt water and sand.
This apartment is wonderful! No need to rush over Oia to catch the sunset with 1,000 of your best friends because you get a spectacular view from the comfy lounge chairs on the large terrace right outside your front door! There are restaurants and mini markets steps away and it's only a 10 min walk to all the action in Fira.
The apartment is the perfect size for four people. We had a second couple and they happily pushed the two beds in the living room together and made it up as one.
Elvira was very welcoming and was able to accommodate us right when we arrived. She answered all of our questions, provided us with beach towels, and booked a taxi for us when it was time to go. Her associate Claudy was also very nice and came to tidy up the apartment each day.
I will definitely be staying here again next time I'm in Satorini!
Our stay at Sensyo was wonderful! Elvira left a welcome note for us upon our arrival as well as welcome wine, juice and water already chilled in the fridge! The space was exactly as shown in the photos, it was clean and spacious enough for 4 people. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes, utensils, and anything you may need during your stay. The space was cleaned daily with clean towels provided every two days.
However it is the view from the front door that is really special! It is truly spectacular and every bit as lovely if not more so than the photos!
The location of Sensyo in Firostefani village is perfect! There are many delicious restaurants within 1-2min walk, all with fantastic Caldera views. The area is quiet and peaceful but with all the convenience of being only a short and very reasonable 10min or less walk from Fira. We went to Fira several evenings for dinner or drinks and it was not at all a problem to walk there or even take a taxi.
Elvira was lovely and a great host! She gave us many fantastic recommendations for restaurants and activities to do around the island.
I would absolutely recommend Sensyo to anyone planning to visit Santorini! It was a fantastic experience!!
Elvira was most helpful from date of booking...to our time of departure from Sensyo. I initially booked the wrong month...Elvira gladly was able to change this for us.
Instructions for arrival were easy to follow and 100% accurate...even I could follow them! Our apartment 'Gravitate' was exactly as advertised and pictured... the view is breath taking and more than I expected. Great shower, coffee maker and huge fridge/freezer. PLUS complimentary juice, wine, water AND coffee for machine all nicely chilled in the fridge. The cleaning lady is lovely and comes each day. We needed help with booking a taxi to the port...I emailed Elvira who arranged this for us no problem. Thank you Elvira, wonderful host. Absolutely recommend Gravitate for a perfect holiday. The locals are fabulous too! Hope to return!
We had a lovely stay at Gravitate in late September 2014. However we did not meet our host until the day before we left. When we finally met she did call a taxi for us for the following day and arranged for a porter (we paid him) to carry our luggage up the 80 steps to catch the taxi.
The views of the Caldera are amazing and there is plenty of room on the veranda to sit out and watch the sun set. Elvira left clear instructions about the WiFi, turning on the water heater before each shower, offering food recommendations, and details about NOT flushing toilet paper. We were a group of four women and managed well with one bathroom and three beds. We would have appreciated a set of clean towels during our four-night stay. The rental has no windows--see description of cave--but the place is clean, near the public bus stop and a short walk to Fira. Carefully read about the many steps required to access the rental or get back to the shops in Firastafani. We had a lovely time in Santorini!
Loved our stay here. We had an amazing sun set view and there were some great restaurants within walking distance. I struggled to carry my luggage up and down the stairs on arrival and departure but that was the only thing I could pick. It was cleaned daily and with three of us staying there it still felt spacious. A 10min walk in to Fira and a quick bus ride to Oia or Black Beach. I would definitely stay here again.
The house location was excellent, with convenient access to transportation and dining and the sunset views were spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
What a great stay! The view was out of this world and we couldn't be happier. Elvira helped in many different ways and her communication was excellent. Close to Fira but away from the crowds. The cave was clean, spacious and had all the amenities you would need. Thanks for making this an exceptional stay!

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
