mu named is ioanna and i am owner of the rentals houses in santorini island. we born in island and we live in santorini island. we are farmer too we have organic vineyards and we make wines follow only the traditional way.
We absolutely loved our stay here in Oia hosted by Ioanna. The authentic cave-house is fantastic and the views are spectacular! There is not a bad word we have to say about this place. If we return to Santorini, this is where we will stay!! AMAZING!!
Ioanna and her husband were excellent hosts. They arranged transportation to and from the apartment when arriving and leaving, and provided information on the island, things to do, and other useful tips. They also provided personal touches throughout our stay. The apartment is very clean and comfortable with amazing views of the sunset, the caldera, and the sea. Would highly recommend staying there. We had a great time!
We spent two wonderful days in Ioanna 's apartment, with lovely environment and good facilities, as well as their pleasant company.The family are polite and warm-hearted
to us the whole time,and we believe they are the dream hosts for airbnb travellers.
This charming cave house is truly in one of the best locations in Oia. Sitting on your own little deck to watch the spectacular sunset, you will be the envy of the hordes of tourists who line up behind you to see it. We spent 3 nights here and were very disappointed to leave (even though we were moving to a very nice hotel) because it was so authentic and homely. The furniture inside is simple but comfortable. The wifi is great. It was fantastic to have use of a lovely nearby pool, and there is a great ocean swimming spot nearby. Ioanna and Fotinos are so kind and hospitable and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Another of their guests told me that when their lost luggage finally arrived at Santorini Airport, Fotinos drove to the airport and back to get it for them - very nice of him. We would love to stay here again.
Wow - wonderful experience. Oia is definitely the best place on the island - much better than staying in Thira. Plus, the flat is at the very edge of the village, so it is super-quiet at night and you can even sleep with the windows open to hear the waves and see the ships go by. Also, you HAVE to hang out at the near pool bar. The host will show you where it is. You just buy a drink or a salad and can use a deck chair the whole day. As for the restaurants, they can be very expensive, so go and find some in second row and prices are immediately half. The flat itself is wonderful and cosy and you can make fantastic photo shootings around it at sunset. I was not aware there is even a white wooden deck stretching above the entrance, so you can lay down there for a sundowner or photo shoot. Hundreds of people watch the sunset every evening in Oia and YOU will have your very private spot to view it. Everyone will envy you for this great spot and location. I just don't have no words how magical this place is!!
Ioanna and Fotinos were wonderful hosts. They provided us with great recommendations, arranged for someone to pick us up from the airport, and even went out of their way to meet us in Fira with our bags before our scheduled ferry. The apartment is in an excellent location--we had a great view of the sunset and it was a short walk to the bus station and main street of Oia. Highly recommend.
Ioanna and Fotinos were really great hosts, tipped us about some nice restaurants and arranged driver for us when we arrived and when departing. Nice, clean room with comfortable bed in a quiet but well located area only 5 minutes walk to the best beach . Supermarket, car/scooter rentals are really close, and lot of good restaurants within a walking distance of the apartment. Wonderful 10 day holiday in Santorini.
Our timing could not possibly have been worse on our trip to Santorini--we arrived just as a fire at the powerplant left the entire island without electricity and water. What was supposed to be a 30 minute hiccup left us without consistent power and almost no water/plumbing for the entire 5 day trip.
Despite everything that happened, we really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone visiting Santorini. The place is amazing and the location could not possibly be any better. I can't even imagine how much nicer it would have been with air conditioning and a working shower/toilet. There is something really magical about Santorini and this place. It was our favorite part of our 3 week trip, despite all the problems we had.
Ionna and Fotinos are great hosts who were always available and helpful, giving us updates on the power problem and providing water, icepacks and some sweets to keep our mind off the situation.
We hope we can make it back again someday
Excellent experience here and can't wait to return. Fotinos and Ioanna were exceptionally helpful during our stay. They arranged trips to and from airport, and helped with transfer of luggage (certainly needed, otherwise we wouldn't have found the house, and the stairs around Oia are many). We had an early departure flight at 0700, and Fotinos arrived at 0500 to ensure we had a ride to the airport. The house has a beautiful view and is close to all the shops and restaurants, but is just far enough away to be very quiet and nearly private. We also briefly visited Fira, and while it was nice also, for us Oia is the place to stay. Fira seemed to be bigger and had more commercialized shopping, while Oia had more local artists and seemed a little more relaxed. Overall, it was a great vacation and we couldn't be happier with our choice.
Our stay in Oia was pleasant and we enjoyed the cave house. It was neat and clean, and Ioanna and Fotinos were pleasant and very helpful during our stay in Santorini.
