A special villa with amazing views
Our family of 5 stayed in the the 4-bedroom villa with outdoor kitchen and private pool for 6 nights the last week of June. What a great choice we made! First off, the views are even more amazing than the pictures show. It's jaw dropping stunning that you cannot believe until you see it. The villa itself is wonderful with beautiful outside gathering areas for relaxing by the pool, having meals, enjoying coffee or wine, and just hanging around. The rooms are all very nice, especially the two suites at the bottom section of the villa. It was great having AC in the rooms as a reprieve from the heat in the afternoon, but we often would just take a dip in the pool after a walk around town as a way to cool off. Chantal was an excellent host who was helpful with questions and close by in a completely separate villa of her own in case we needed something. We really appreciated the prearranged private transfers from the ferry port on arrival and to the airport when we departed. The cooking staff was very friendly and quite good. We all enjoyed the elegantly prepared breakfast each morning. We had them cook dinner for us one night for an additional fee. It was one of our favorite meals of the trip. The menu was local Santorini cuisine, and the lamb was the best we had in Greece. The table setting and service was top notch, and the view was just as good or better than most of the restaurants in the area. The cleaning staff made sure our rooms and the grounds were all neat and tidy every day. The location was perfect for us. There are shops to pick up snacks and drinks about 3 minutes away. We did not cook at all, but you could if you wanted. Breakfast (included) was a big meal, then in the mid afternoon we usually had snacks that we had purchased nearby. Then for dinner, we enjoyed going out. The restaurant choices are abundant and spectacular, and many are only 3 minutes away. The main town of Fira is about a 10-15 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Santorini.
On a separate note, we rented a car for 3 of the days we were there to allow us to get around and explore the island (e.g. Kamari, Oia, Akrotiri, Red Beach). There is a good free parking lot nearby at 25is Martiou. There are other parking options too, but this one was only 5 minutes away and had plenty of spots.
The view of the caldera is breathtaking particularly at sunset. There can be no better situation on Santorini. There are cafes a few steps away; it is an easy walk to FIra with more eating , strolling, shopping and sightseeing opportunities. The airport transport was timely and drivers polite. This is included in the rental fee as is breakfast which is very nice, at a time of your choice .We did have dinner the day we arrived and it was really superb, probably the best we had on our Greek vacation.
Two caveats: there are several outdoor concrete flights of steps which are not avoidable and somewhat steep. This is not a handicap accessible unit. For the same reason It is not suitable for small children in my opinion. Secondly there is not a large living area for indoor family gathering. This won't matter in nice weather as plenty of outdoor space but I think renters should be aware. All in all for our party it was an excellent stay.
Excellent care for our comfort during family vacation!
We cannot day enough about Seahorse and their staff. From Chantal to Xenofon, Athena and the rest of the staff. They accommodated our every need, even bring toys down for the 15-mon old granddaughter. The rooms very clean and well-appointed, and met all of our needs. It was peaceful just to sit on one of the levels to watch the sunset or the boats pass by. It was also close enough to walk to the shops in Fira. And Chantal arranged for our transportation for a day in Oia. One of our best evenings was the barbecue dinner prepared by their chef. We laughed all night and Athena’s Santorini tomato balls were delicious. We hope to return!
This villa has the most amazing views. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our family had a great vacation here. I highly recommend it. We can't wait to come back!
A wonderful family vacation
My family and I stayed for a week at Chantal's property...it was located in a perfect location and had truly breathtaking views. Chantal and her staff couldn't be more accommodating, whether booking catamaran trips or recommending dinner options. Chefs Xenofon and Athena served beautiful breakfasts daily. We can't wait to be able to come back and stay with Chantal again!
This place is fantastic. Views, location, staff all A+. They even provide laundry service!! No hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. You will not be sorry. There are several sections to the property which allow for privacy when needed. Make sure you rent the right group of rooms if you want the pool. Property manager is very helpful and communicative. Great stay from beginning to end. Only regret was that it wasn't longer.
