106 steps down to paradise !! Thanks to Ana Stamos & Leah & the pool man sorry I can't spell name but he carries 40kg up the steps
Hara's house studio 5 is magical! Amazing view and semi private pool as no one really uses it for long and also unobstructed views as studio is right at the front of the cliff! Sun sets over Imerovigli. We are slightly inland so cannot see Oia or Skaros but really beautiful sunsets even with the fog that rolled in a couple of times which made it ever more dramatic. Loved the patio... Even when people were using pool, it was nice chatting and getting tips on other good finds in Santorini from other guests which we enjoyed. Early morning and late night pool users are a little more intrusive as you can see people from the inside when shutters are open but still I think this is the best studio being next to pool and on the cliff edge. You can watch all kinds of birds soaring up and down the cliff... Pretty (website hidden) works good and kettle and coffee press were great. We loved being able to walk over to Skaros for sunset and being away from crazy Oia and Fira. Great location. Little store at top good for getting water, coffee and yogurt. Stamos arranged minibus transport for us to and from airport/port. Made it very easy. He also stored our bags until our pick up time for the airport. The wifi is horrendous - don't even bother trying to use it. It didn't bother us too much but if you need to work and check emails etc, this will not work for you. Just trying to send out an emailed arrange check out took a very long time. All cafes/restaurants have wifi, just ask for passwords and they will gladly give it to you.
Staying in Studio 5 was amazing. Beautiful views and beautiful accommodation. Stamos, our host there could not have been more helpful and Lia the cleaner was also very friendly.
Hara's houses is ideally located. A 15-20 min walk takes you into Thira which is the capital. Within a couple of minutes is some lovely restaurants as well as supermarkets and a pharmacy. Everything we needed was on hand.
Thank you Anna for a truly amazing stay,
Stamos was waiting for us upon arrival ~ showed us around the area, and let us know all the ins and outs of the room itself. The room was in perfect condition...clean, cozy, large and stocked with anything you could need for cooking up meals in house. The location was spectacular, unreal view. I use airb&b with some frequency, and this was by far the most spectacular place I have stayed ~ would recommend it to anyone! Also - Stamos helped us with car issues we where having and was always in contact when we needed!
Nice location, on the cliff. The place was cleaned everyday. Close to Fira.
Stay here when travelling to santorini.. dont look anywhere else. Amazing place, unobstructed views, amazing hosts.
