We had a fantastic time here, it was very reasonably priced and felt like home. Amazing location, with sunset views against the backdrop of the lovely buildings of Oia, and a lovely 10 minute walk into the village itself. Highly recommended and we'd love to come back. Elena even left us some local wine in the fridge, and was easy to contact.
Gorgeous place, which we will recomend to our friends and love to go again!
The house is spacious for two persons and has two bathrooms. The furnishing, the explications and the contact with Elena are very lovingly.
The terrace is amazing and really as it looks on the pictures. We loved to watch the sunset from there. A pool, which we could use, is 12 steps beside the terrace. After going up steps you will reach a supermarket in about 5 minutes and the beginning of the main pedestrian zone in about 7 minutes. It means it is very close to the center. Oia is very picturesque and one of the most beautiful villages/towns ever seen.
Elena place is perfect in Oia!
The view of the town with the sunset over it is just what postcards are made off!
The place is approximately 5-10 mins from the heart of Oia!
The bedroom is on a loft upstairs and there plenty of space also with two bathrooms! The pool is only a few metres from your front door!
Even though we didn't get to meet Elena her communication was 1st class and she even provides an in apartment phone to call her on arrival.
Would not hesitate staying here again... Loved it
Abbiamo passato una settimana indimenticabile in questa casa.
La location è meravigliosa, romantica, intima, silenziosa e con una vista mozzafiato (tramonto di Oia, mare e Caldera).
Situata vicina al centro di Oia quanto basta per poterla raggiungere con una piacevolissima passeggiata con vista (10 min) ed allo stesso tempo lontana dal caos dei turisti a passeggio.
La casa all'interno è fantastica: caratteristica, perfettamente arredata con stile ed estremamente pulita.
Tutto è esattamente come nelle foto e il wifi funziona bene.
Dulcis in fundo Marilene è stata gentilissima (ci ha anche fatto trovare una bottiglia di vino bianco in frigo) e sempre presente via email/telefono.
Staying at Marilene's apartment was better than expected, the pictures can't do justice to a place that is so amazing. You grab a cup of coffee or tea, open the front door and you are in heaven. The view! The view! Using words could I explain well enough how much I enjoyed staying here? I loved it, a memory I'll never forget. Like a dream.
Now for practicalities: the apartment was very clean and well-organized when my partner and I arrived. Communication between Marilene and I was great (not too much, not too little) before, during, and after the trip. She recommended the best places to go, and I was lucky to meet some fantastic people who really embody the Santorini spirit. The location was fantastic. Far enough away from the bustle, but very easy to get anywhere.
Can I write anything negative? No, actually. I was so happy there.
Matthew is a real "noble guest", very thankful and friendly.
He had the obvious expectations and he was aware of the environment and he respected the house, which is very important.
People like him and his company make you feel more obliged to improve hospitality.
He is welcome anytime ..
We had a great time at elena's house, the pictures set our expectations high but the view particularly was even more beautiful than pictured. The house was well equipped with nice touches such as guides to the island. Elena was swift to correct the few things we asked. It was great to have a nice kitchen to prepare some meals and the balcony was a lovely place for dining/relaxing and not very overlooked unlike other places we saw. I would definitely recommend this listing.
