Wonderful spot to stay, house was very clean and the view is spectacular. Yota was fantastic and set us up perfectly with a ride from the airport, a rental car, and a fantastic catamaran ride. I would recommend this spot to anyone who wants to visit the island as it is a perfect location to stay, rural and not so close to all of the tourism.
One of the Best Ways to Travel
In Santorini, I was able to stay in a luxury hotel on the Caldera, which was great, but my VRBO stay at the Galazio house was even better. To me, when visiting someplace new, it's more rewarding to experience the culture and lifestyle from a more local perspective.
The house is situated up in the hills overlooking the sea in the village of Akrotiri. We strolled down the hill to the town square and enjoyed the local restaurants. We stopped in the market to grab a few things to prepare a meal in the well-stocked kitchen. A stroll in another direction took us to a few more outstanding restaurants with 360 degree views of the incredibly scenic island.
Our host, Yota, was fabulous. She helped us book an amazing wine tasting/cooking lesson tour and a fishing charter where you could experience how the locals have been fishing for years. She made all the logistics work too which alleviated all the stress including getting a driver to show up on time (5:45 am) to get us to the airport.
The house was clean and comfortable. Lots of pillows and blankets which came in handy since it was a bit chilly and windy. I found myself wishing I had the kind of job that would let me work remotely so I could stay a few months.
If you just want to be a tourist, then by all means, stay in the fancy hotels and let them spoil you with their polished, homogenous offering that with enough $$s you could get anywhere. I admit it was quite nice. But staying at the Galazio House allowed me to have a more real Greek experience that caused me to truly love Greece and especially Santorini.
Thank you a lot for choosing our residence for your stay in Santorini and it would be greater pleasure for us to have you back here any time you wish. You have a home in Greece away from your home. Best wishes!
