"We were two families staying in Villa Diamond for a week in July 2015. We had a very nice stay. The view was absolutely fantastic, and it was a short walk up to the center of wonderful Oia. The villa was clean and nice, with a nice terrace both in front and in the back. It also had a private jacuzzi. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They arranged rental of ATV´s and cars, and they fixed groceryshopping, free of delivery.
It was close to a small beach and a very nice restaurant close to it. It was also close to Amoundi Bay, with nice restaurants and fantastic view.
There is a shared pool, with sunchairs around. Be aware of the fact that the pool is only aporoxomately 3x6 m, so not very large if you want to swim or play, or share it with several other families with kids. But it was nice and clean. It was also very windy there. I assume that is how it usually is, as it was windy 6 out of the 7 days the week we were there.
The house has 3 bedrooms in the basement. All with AC, which was nice and necessary. However, the basement had the "regular basement-smell", which is not very nice. In the basement there is also the kitchen and dining room, and a small bathroom with a washer (that did not work, but is probably fixed now since we informed the staff). The fourth bedroom is a mezzanini, above the main floor. That made it hard for the young couple in our group to get any privacy, as it was open to the main enterance and livingroom. The main floor has a livingroom, a small bathroom and a small kitchen with a zink and a small fridge. Wifi only works (at least every now and then) in the living room upstairs, so no wifi or phone connection in the basement.
All in all a very nice stay in Oia Sunset Villas."

"We had a wonderful time at Oia Sunset Villas!!! The place is so spacious but cozy at the same time. Even though it is very close to the center it is very quiet and the view spectacular! Do not miss it!!!!!"

"The view of the Caldera is even more incredible than you can see online. I had to pinch myself every morning when I sipped my coffee from the spacious veranda and marveled at the scenery! Our stay at Oia's dream was the best vacation we had every experienced. I investigated several properties in Santorini on the Caldera and I could not find anything comparable to a 2 bedroom suite (which was smaller than Oia's Dream) for less than 1,000 Euro per night. The location in Oia was so convenient to shopping, dining and the nightlife for our group. In addition, we had our own private pool and didn't have to fight over pool chairs which is common at resort properties. The house is charming and beautifully decorated in traditional greek style. Oia's Dream was truly a "dream come true"!

"My boyfriend and I stayed at Maria's Place in Oia, Santorini for 7 nights and it was by far the greatest experience we have had. This was our first time traveling to Europe and we were a little nervous at first. It is hard to trust reviews from websites with all the scam artists in the world. Anna and Kostas are NOT scam artists. They are truly wonderful people! They have answered my many questions thoroughly via email and provided detailed activities for us to do throughout our stay. When we arrived to Santorini airport, we were supposed to be picked up by Kostas; however, my flight landed much earlier than expected so we took a taxi for 35 euros. Anna's warm welcome when we arrived was lovely after our 11+ hour flight. After we checked into our room, Anna sat down with us and explained the entire island to us and showed us all the excursions we can do. I definitely recommend the Sunset Oia Catamaran tour for 95 euros per person! It includes food, alcoholic drinks, swimming/snorkeling at 2 beaches, as well as a stop to the Hot Springs (don't wear a white bathing suit if you plan on taking a mud bath). The room was extremely clean and comfortable. It had every kitchen appliance needed for our stay, and we went to the market down the road for a couple of items to keep in the fridge as well.
Maria's Place is a quite, remote location from the bustling center of Oia. The town is a 10 minute walk down the road, where there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and views of the beautiful white homes nestled into the cliff-side. Every picture taken can be put on a post card! Santorini does have public bus transportation; however, if you want the leisure of going out whenever you want, I would recommend renting a car. My boyfriend and I rented a 150cc ATV/Quad for the entire week from Panos (firstname.lastname@example.org) for 190 Euros. He was lovely to work with, answered my emails efficiently, as well as dropped off and picked up the ATV. In order to rent the ATV, you need an International Drivers permit (I got one from NY-DMV for $20). The only thing not included in the price was gas (we only spent 12 Euros on gas for the entire week)! I definitely recommend renting an ATV for the week. It gives you the opportunity to go anywhere on the island on your own time, and really experience the beauty of the island.
Check out Kamari, Vlychada, Perissa, Red/White Beach & seafood restaurants at the bottom of the 250 step trek to Ammoudi Bay. This place is a must stay!!"
