Very good location, excellent service and people very kind. It was amazing the experience
The accommodation is a room at Alisaxni Resort and was more of a resort stay than a typical AirBnB stay. This was, however, not an issue as we loved our time spent there.
The resort is located on the beautiful, quiet countryside portion of the island, away from the huge tourist crowds near Oia and Fira. The location of the resort is available on Google maps if you need to know this.
We stayed four nights and rented a quad for the three full days we were there. It was very easy to get around the Island on the quad and there were many different places to explore around the Island. It was my first time ever on a quad and I had no issues learning how to drive it.
I think you will need a mode of transportation to get around as there are limited shopping and restaurants available close by. We rented the quad through the resort and were happy with this decision. The prices were reasonable and it was delivered to us at the resort. One thing to note is that the island is quite small and can be fully travelled from end to end and back in less than an hour and a half if no stopping. There are other vehicle options available too through the resort (scooter, quad, etc..)
If you only have a day in Santorini and wish to see only the main areas of Oia and Fire this location may not be suitable for you. If you have more time to explore the other parts of the Island and want a more authentic Island experience than I recommend staying here.
The room (we had the studio) was perfect for the two of us. It covered all of the basics and includes a small balcony and kitchenette, with a small fridge. Cutlery and other kitchenware was provided making it easy to cook some small meals in the room. The bathroom includes a small 'no frills' shower. There are some beautiful views of the ocean from the small balcony.
The host - Martha - was extremely easy to get along with and answered any questions we had. She was also able to organize our shuttle to and from the port, as required. Wifi worked good too.
We would go back any day, any time, if the opportunity existed again.
Thanks for everything.

Martha's guesthouse is located in a very peaceful place
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit auf Santorin. Marthas Mutter hat uns spät nachts in Empfang genommen, weil die Fähre Verspätung hatte. Allgemein hat sie sich sehr lieb um uns gekümmert.
Die Umgebung des Resorts ist beeindruckend. Man hat einen tollen Ausblick auf das Meer und kann zu dem Leuchtturm am unteren Ende der Insel laufen. Die Gegend ist nicht annähernd so touristisch (zumindest in der Off-Season) wie Fira oder Oia.
Leider gibt es keinen Bus in der Nähe des Resorts (allgemein sind die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel auf Santorin eher Glückssache). D.h. man sollte sich unbedingt ein Auto mieten, wenn man was erleben möchte.
Zu der Unterkunft an sich: Es war sehr sauber und ruhig. Es war im März ein bisschen kalt in der Wohnung, aber dem konnte man mit einer Klimaanlage entgegenwirken.
Das Resort ist jedem zu empfehlen, der ohnehin ein Auto auf Santorin mieten will und Abgeschiedenheit und Ruhe genießen kann.
Martha's place is like a secret on Santorini. The location is quite south of the island, but the sunset there is spectacular. Best to rent a car to explore the beautiful island. Her mother was also so kind and cheerful to greet us when we arrived late at night due to a delay on the ferry. Martha made sure our pick up from the port went smoothly. The place is exactly like the pictures. Would definitely stay there again whenever back at Santorini, which hopefully will be soon.
I was actually never able to make it to Martha's, as my flight to Santorini was cancelled. However she was completely understanding and went out of her way to make sure we were ok. I hope to stay with her in the future!
We really enjoyed our stay in Martha's house. It is perfectly located in Akrotiri, not far from the Red Beach. The appartment is very cosy, perfect for a couple, and Martha was really helpful!
The room was Nice, with amazing view. Martha and Irène are welcoming! Near, Dimitri taberna is very well... Very good moment there! Thanks. Antoine and Maud
The cave house was very nice! It was quaint and very nice to stay in. Martha was very accommodating and had the house ready for us even though we requested it only two days before and during the offseason. She also arranged a shuttle for us from the airport to the house.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Martha had to be out of town but carefully arranged for her sister-in-law to meet us and lead us to the apartment. The cave house was as described and very comfortable.
It was a very good value for the price.
We had a great time on Santorini and were glad to be off season as there were no crowds anywhere. Parking was available.
