Getting to Ios: Depending on where we are coming from, we take one of two means of transport:
1. From Athens' port Pireaus - Fast ferry - about 4 hours
2. Fly to Santorini and then take a 50 minute ferry to Ios.
My overall experience was really good even if the weather changed my plan.
First of all, it's been really easy to deal with Athina all along the process. The morning I was supposed to arrive on Ios, my ferry was canceled for strong winds and waves, even at that moment Athina has been flexible with us and accept to modify our reservations with few days less than planned.
2 days later we arrived at the house! Everything as described on the web site. Clean place. Gail, who is working for Athina, was waiting for us at the villa and she showed us around the house and make sure to give us few good spots and address on Ios.
We were only a couple to live in the main villa but honestly 2 couples and 2 kids have more space than they need to have a nice stay.
The pool and pool view are awesome but i prefer to snorkel right down the stairs in the sea.
Overall everything in the house was working well. Few chairs on the patio are shaky and needs to be replace but since we were at the end of the season I would'nt be surprised to see these changed for next year. Also since nobody was in the small villa underneath I cannot say if noises go through the walls or things like this. I don't think so cuz it seems well built.
I would consider to return to this place so I do recommend this villa! Athina and Gail are doing a great job.
Thx to you both!
