We have just returned from our honeymoon spent which we spent in Oia for a week in May 2012. Oia was like a paradise, stunning views, amazing food, interesting architecture and a large selection of artwork to peruse. We stayed at the Sea Captain’s House. The hotel is absolutely breathtaking, the view alone is worth the money you pay with... More

My wife and I stayed in the Sailing Suite for 3 nights in May during a 2-week trip through Bulgaria and Greece and I can honestly say that this was one of the best lodging experiences I've ever had! It was definitely my favorite hotel choice for this trip (with the O&B Boutique Hotel in Athens in 2nd place). The... More

I stayed 3 nights in the Venetian Suite while on a grand tour of Greece in May 2012. I booked a room here since it looked like it would have amazing views of the caldera - it did not disappoint!!

I personally would not call this a "hotel", rather a bed and breakfast. We Stayed in the Venetian room and I would say it was a bit disappointing. Our room was very musty and mold was growing on the bathroom wall. The Location could not be more perfect, however! I overlooked the problems because the setting was so wonderful! Tony... More

We ended up here because we complained about the accommodation we had originally booked. The Sea Captain's Rooms was our compensation and what compensation it was! There's nothing I can add that others haven't said - we were so glad we spoke up and were offered this gem. It turned a bad experience into a great one. Great view, service,... More

We stayed in the sailing suite in July. The porch outside our room looked down at the caldera. The view is unbelievable it is the view everyone comes to the Greek islands to see and we sat eating our breakfast every morning looking out at it. The room was lovely, very clean and comfortable.

My husband and I were reminiscing about our lovely time in Oia when we realized we never properly thanked Tony. Between the view, the food and the impeccable service (big thumbs up to Niko if he is still around, too) it was as close to perfect as you can reasonably expect. To wake up to breakfast on the patio overlooking... More

We stayed at Captain's suite. Tony's got it right: easy booking, personalised service, tasteful antique interior décor in comfortable rooms (dusting more regularly would help though to care for those with allergies). The balcony has a stunning view, location is perfect for off season travellers, it is sheltered from the wind and the warm sun will undress you - just... More

I made a reservation for my mother and I in the Falling Stars house - the owner Tony always replied promptly and thoughtfully.
