Lovely, well-located house for a relaxing stay.
Our family of 5 (all adults) had a wonderful 5-day stay at House Eirini. The house itself is a restored Santorini cave house, with 3 beautiful terraces for sunning, reading, eating and enjoying the view of the village and the sea. Two of the bedrooms, one upstairs with its own terrace and one off to the side of the house with its own bathroom, have absolute quiet and privacy, and the third is located just closed off from the kitchen in a wonderfully cozy curved ceiling room that was part of the original cave house. Our young adults loved that room! The house is well-equipped with everything you need, including beach towels, games, TV, and a helpful homemade restaurant guide. The owners Mark and Christine were so friendly and helpful. They had us picked up at the ferry port, and Mark met us where the driver dropped us off to help with our luggage. We were welcomed with a fridge stocked with cheese, ham, butter, wine and beer, as well as bread and bottled water to kick off our stay without having to immediately run to the store. There is a bakery with some convenience store items just around the corner, with a wonderful selection of Greek pastries and the best gelato we found on the island. We were grateful to be located in Megalochori, which is a quaint traditional village that is wonderfully peaceful, has a handful of excellent tavernas, and is well located to reach everything we wanted to see. It's about a 15 min drive away from the main town of Fira, which was unpleasantly full of cruise ship day tourists to the point where you get pedestrian traffic jams. Much better to do the Fira-Oia hike, spending a little time in the towns as you go, and otherwise head to the beaches of Perissa or Kamari (Go to the Kamari outdoor cinema - fabulous experience!). We highly recommend House Eirini - wonderful stay for a great value!
We had a wonderful week in Christine and Mark's property. The house was immaculately clean and it was great to have so much space inside and out. Christine and Mark were always on hand to answer any queries and the communication was excellent throughout the holiday. Megalochori is a beautiful little village and very close to breath-taking caldera views . We spent a few evenings in the village square sampling local cuisine. Thank you for a lovely, restful week!
Spacious, quiet and relaxing
So pleased that picked this property for our trip! The villa was beautiful, town was quiet. The only place on the island that wasn't swarmed with tourists. Mark and Christine were great hosts... very accommodating and responsive. We felt even better about our choice once we heard some nightmare stories about certain Santorini hotels from people that were on the same flight. It really made our trip that much more enjoyable. Without hesitation we would recommend this villa to anyone.
Excellent Home, Excellent Location, Excellent Hosts!
Although we have stayed at many VRBO/HomeAway properties all over the world, the experience we had at this wonderful home surpassed all of our expectations. The location of the home is Santorini is absolutely perfect if you are seeking a home base to explore all areas of the island, but do not want to be in the more congested and noisy areas at the end of the day. Mark and Christine provided VIP service from the moment of the booking to the end of the stay. From the transportation to and from the airport, the convenient delivery of the rental car, the wine, beer, cheese and fresh bread waiting for us at arrival, all could not have been more appreciated. And it is impossible not to fall in love with the people, and the food and wine in Megalochori - the village we determined to be the most beautiful village on Santorini. The surreal view from the home will be in our memories forever. We cannot wait to return to Santorini and would not consider staying at any other home other than those owned and managed by Mark and Christine!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, and we are so happy you enjoyed our house and the village.
We do hope you will return some time in the near future.
All the very best.
Christine & Mark
We loved our week in this beautifully clean and well equipped house. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are great. Being picked up and dropped off at the airport was much appreciated. We enjoyed exploring the island using the local buses and had some great meals especially at the Mexican restaurant and at The Wave at Akritiri . It is a truly beautiful island with the most spectacular views and amazing sunsets and this house provided us with the perfect base although it is so lovely we often didn't want to leave it!
We stayed in this Villa for two weeks, it’s situated in a a very traditional/beautiful Greek village. It’s quiet but lovely and very close to other towns/villages. Mark and Christine were fantastic, very warm and welcoming. Always on hand to help us when needed whether that be about something in the villa or just general info about the island.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday & would definitley recommend a stay here.
Megalochori is one of the most peaceful and traditional villages on the island of Santorini. The property is a short walk to the village square where there are three excellent restaurants offering Greek and international food. You can't fail to notice the large number of wine tasting places here and indeed this village is at the heart of the island's wine making industry. Many of the bigger facilities, like Boutari, are on the village's outskirts among the vineyards.
