                                                                        Elizabeth M.

                                                                        There aren't enough words to describe how amazing our trip was from start to finish. Petra is the most amazing host and friend you could ever ask for. A light in the dark always brightening your day. We wish we could have spent more time with her. But she steered us in the right direction. Our island cruise was unforgettably amazing. And the villa was a dream. The best location only steps from all of the main stores and restaurants in Fira. With an unbeatable view all day and night. The beds were heavenly. And having a kitchen and washer plus two baths, we felt like we were living like royalty. The pool was a huge hit. We spent the days we weren't exploring laying beside it Andrea passerbys constantly stopped to admire our choice. When we come back to Greece again, there's nowhere else we'd choose to stay. Villa Dakoronia is hands down the best on the island and we are so grateful to Petra and the staff who took care of us. They were so kind, helping with our bags and cleaning every day. It was a dream come true. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

We followed many of their recommendations which were always awesome, then came hope to a refreshing dip in the pool and wine overlooking the caldera. By far our best vacation in the perfect spot ❤️

                                                                        It was a real pleasure having you here and I am really glad that I helped you to experience an unforgettable vacation.

                                                                        Hope to see you again soon

                                                                        Marie W.

                                                                        I booked this villa based on the location and amenities, but also based on the excellent reviews of the personal service by the owners. The villa was as listed, but the experience was not quite what I had expected based on the reviews. Joanna and Memos no longer live on site nor do they personally manage the property. We were told upon arrival that as of the first of October, it is now being managed by a rental management agency. Unfortunately, we were one of their first clients and they hadn't quite mastered the learning curve. We arrived after dark and were met at the airport by a van transport service which dropped us off at the closest parking area to the villa. From there we had to wrestle our own luggage down a steep, winding, dark, broken cobblestone path to the villa, being led by a management member who gave us only her first name and phone number should we need further assistance. The internet didn't work, and after several attempted calls to the phone number provided and an email to the owners, someone came out to change out the repeater, which helped only marginally. Internet service was unreliable at best. The pool was not heated, but after the first 2 days, that problem was solved. Hopefully the service provided by the rental agency will improve.

                                                                        Having said that, we really enjoyed the villa. The location and views of the caldera were unsurpassed, especially at sunset. It far enough away from Fira to be quiet, but close enough to easily walk into town, which we did daily. The cable car and several really good restaurants were within easy walking distance. We never rented a car and didn't feel that we needed one, as we could walk wherever we wanted to go. We had hoped to enlist Memos for an island tour, but instead took and island tour with Dimitris at Ocean Wave Tours. He was great and I highly recommend him. The upper and lower level outdoor spaces at the villa were amazing, and we really enjoyed the pool. The beds were comfortable, and the villa was clean and well stocked (with daily cleaning service). Upon leaving, we were provided with someone to carry our luggage to the transport van for our return trip to the airport. We had a great trip, but it wasn't quite the experience I had expected. There are 2 flights of stairs to access the first and second floor, so if your are mobility impaired it might be an issue.

                                                                        Amazing views!

                                                                        We loved our visit. Villa was modern, very clean and convenient to restaurants and shopping. Joanna was a great hostess. Gave us a lovely parting gift that was very unexpected. Thank you for making our visit so nice.

                                                                        Wonderful family vacation

                                                                        Nick G.

                                                                        I stayed with my family (Mom, Dad and sister) at Joanna's place and had a wonderful time! For those who haven't stayed on the Caldera, it's important to note that certain locations require more or less effort to reach, and this location was one of the more accessible ones. Joanna was very helpful throughout our stay, and very accessible as well. She was responsive on email and well prepared for our visit with welcome materials.

                                                                        When I come back to Fira, I will seek out this property again - it's in an excellent location and extremely well-managed.

                                                                        Amazing

                                                                        We could not have been more impressed by the hospitality offered to us by our host Joanna. We arrived much later than planned and yet she was able to provide efficient transportation and information to make us feel welcome. The location of the villa, 5 minutes from the cable car, was absolutely perfect, allowing us the opportunity to have access to what the entire island has to offer. We would absolutely recommend and encourage a visit to Villa Dakoronia. Thank you so much Joanna.

                                                                        Firá is the capital of Santorini. It is a traditional settlement. Fira is a city of white-washed houses built on the edge of the 400 m high caldera on the western edge of the semi-circular island of Santorini. The two main museums of interest are the Santorini Archeological Museum,( 300 m east of Villa Dakoronia), and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at the southeast corner of the White Orthodox Cathedral . Access to Fira is mainly by roads on its eastern side, climbing from its port via the Z-shaped footpath on foot or on donkeys, or by riding the steep cable car from its lower terminal by the port. The central square of Fira is called Plateia Theotokopoulou, with a bus and taxi station, banks and pharmacies. The narrow paths, lined with all kinds of souvenir shops, jewelry shops, and restaurants linking the upper cable car terminal and the central square, are packed with tourists during the summer seasons. The view from Fira is magnificent, with a nice panoramic view of the 18 km long caldera from southern Cape Akrotiri to northern Cape Ag. Nikolaos, plus the volcanic island Nea Kameni at the center with Thirassia Island in the distant west on blueAegean water. Big cruise ships can usually be seen anchoring in the small harbor between Nea Kameni and Fira.
