Stayed two nights at Studio 5. The view is breath taking and Stamos is very friendly and helpful. Everything went very smoothly and we had a great stay. The pool is a perfect way to wake yourself up and cool down again after a long day exploring the island.
There is no doubt that Santorini is one very special place, and the location of Hara's houses is superb. Out of the bustle of thira, yet within easy walking distance and with stunning views, we thought the location was perfect. Also this group of little self- contained apartments are so quiet and private, as there are no houses further below you, so no one walking past- this is a major plus. The other big plus about staying here was the property manager Stamos- he went out of his way to help sort out a few issues we had on arrival, and we really appreciated that. He really genuinely cares that you have a good experience in Santorini! The pool area is gorgeous, and although small is still very relaxing and has stupendous views!
Unfortunately though we do have to say that there were some problems for us with the accommodation, due to the nature of staying on the side of the cliff on the rocks. I think many places do have issues with the damp and mould due to the rocks, and this was true of house five and we were kindly able to move to another house which helped a little, although there was still damp and mould in the bathroom. This worried us more than possibly the average traveler as a family member has allergies to moulds. If you are not worried by these things, the location of these houses really is brilliant.
Hara's House Studio 5 was a wonderful little unit tucked away in a beautiful nook of Imerovigli. Great little plunge pool outside the unit. Stamos the facility manager was extremely responsive and helpful. Highly recommended place to stay. Cave bed is adorable but a bit confining for big guys like me...a bit stuffy on warm nights, too. All in all a great unit. Location is perfect in Imerovigli, right below some great restaurants (La Maison, Anogi)...less touristy than Fira. Highly recommended!!
My stay at Hara's Houses was wonderful! Exactly as described. Stamos was reliable and friendly, the studio was cozy and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and the view is unbeatable! It is a short walk to Fira (15-20 minutes) or a quick taxi or bus ride. There is a place to rent cars and motorbikes just up the hill, a little market and several restaurants. I highly recommend Anogi and the Aegean.
The only improvement I would suggest is to provide nicer coffee for the mornings, for us coffee lovers. There is a french press but only nescafe packets provided. I loved my time here, though, and would happily stay again!
Excellent service with pick up and drop off.
