We were picked up from the airport in style and everything was amazing from the moment we arrived.
We loved our villa with the private pool it was absolutely beautiful. It is done to a high standard and I loved the beachy decor. We spent a week and could not have been happier. Our first night we had a romantic dinner delivered to our villa. Which was absolutely amazing.
Kostas and his lovely staff were fantastic. They made us feel like family. Breakfast delivered each morning was excellent. With great service from one of the best!!
Kostas was available 24/7 with any questions. He also was very helpful with the island and where to go and what to see.
Location was very close to a couple markets and some very good restaurants.
Thank you, Kostas and staff, we have great memories of our week spent with you.
I hope will meet again one day.
Love the Beckner's
A very comfortable place to relax after a days walking and sightseeing on Santorini. The shower was spacious and hot and all the rooms were immaculately clean and the beds were really comfortable. The outdoor space is attractive with good quality furniture arranged around a small pool with some nice planting adding a splash of colour. The apartment is very close to the Venetian Tower, the oldest castle in Santorini, from which there are wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
The village of Akrotiri is quite small but had enough restaurants to give us choice in the evening, and the tourist hot-spots of Thira and Oia can be reached using good local buses, which are cheap.
Red beach is a 20 minute walk away and there is a path that goes through countryside if you don't want to drive.
Kostas has been in this three-family business for 32 years, and they built the new villa with lots of love in it. All details of the construction, decoration, and services are of high quality and sincere consideration. We truly loved the place.
My husband and I just got married on 9/1/17, my dream was always to honeymoon in Santorini, thanx to all the amazing friends and family in our lives our dream was able to become a reality. We booked our flights and stays in all the places we wanted to visit in Greece, except for Santorini. We could not find any accommodations. We were beginning to get very worried and sad. We actually found an airbnb, and last minute ,the host never confirmed and cancelled us the moment we got on our plane to Athens. Luckily I had messaged a few other hosts. Kostas was our savior, the owner of Mathios Luxury Homes. He messaged us and told us not to worry he would save us a villa. At first we were reluctant, speaking to a man we did not know, on messenger, from a country we had never visited. He was such an honest kind man that saw our frustration and worry that he held the villa without a credit card. Now our magical experience begins...Upon arrival in Santorini he had his private car pick is up, it was a short pleaseant breathtaking ride. We arrived at his hotel to meet such a kind, honest, warm, loving individual. He told us he felt our warmth and honesty through the phone and that he knew he could trust us. From there he proceeded to guide us on the honeymoon of our dreams.. He gave us all the information we needed to know about the entire island, what to do and not to do, eat and not to eat. He even sent us to his special restaurants and locations that greeted and treated us like family. Him and his staff made our 7 days IN Santorini the most magical experience ever.
Now the villa has no words to describe it besides PERFECT!!!the location is amazing, you don't have the loud crowded towns like Oia and Fira, it a village with locals and tourists and everything is close, you can get anywhere on the Island in car between 10-25 min (traffic depending). The villa was honey and luxurioisly comfortable. Everything was so clean, well kept and new. All white and marble inside and u felt like you were in one of the stone caves on the Island. The best areas were the rooftop deck and pool deck. We stayed put there for hours with wine, cheese and music, talking and taking in the views. Every morning we woke to a magnificent fresh breakfast that was brought to any location in the house by Vitalie and Violet, by far the friendliest and most helpful staff we have ever met. Oh and the pool...AMAZING...
HANDS DOWN STAY AT MATHIOS LUXURY HOMES WHEN IN SANTORINI!!!!
YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!
I had an amazing honeymoon here with an experience that will truly last forever. Kostas, the booking agent and owner was so aware helpful and guiding that everything he suggested we did and it truly made a difference. He went above and beyond and responded to us DIRECTLY before finalized anything to recommend the best villa, time and what to do!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CONTACTING HIM FIRST! I must admit, I was weary of this as it was mt first time in the country but he is very well spoken and trust worthy! Here's a summary:
*Location: Within 20min of everything you want to do on the Island and with its own quite street. Everything meaning the BEST SUNSET spots, restaurants, winery, traditional towns, shops, supermarket, bakerys, etc.
*Villa: All new state-of-the-art 0equipment inside without losing the original traditional essence of Santorini. Faboulous well filtered private pool with beach 4 beach chairs and 4 person table with chairs, Roof top deck with ridicouls views, Smart Tvs, full kitchen with utensils, air conditioning you control and very comfortable beds.
*The booking agent and staff:
Go above and beyond to make this a great experience. They truly make it work for whatever you need and only recommend what they know works well. The nature of the people is to be honest, and Mathios Village staff supersedes all other interactions we've had! They are also a full blown travel agency and book anything addtional to do like rent cars/atvs, boat trips, restaurant reservations etc.
My wife and I will certainly be returning with our closest family and friends!
We have been staying at Hotel Village Mathios since 1997 everytime we visited Santorini. This time we stayed in the Mathios Luxury Homes. They are beautiful with luxury bath, bedrooms, living room and kitchen. The outdoor living space has a private pool, lounge chairs, umbrella, and dining table and chairs. And there are private balconies out of each bedroom. The other nice thing is you are staying in a small village in Santorini; the village of Akrotiri. You are able to experience the real local life and are away from the cruise ship crowds in Fira and Oia. But you can go to experience those villages at non peak times. Kostas and his family are very welcoming and you feel like you are staying at their home. The staff is awesome and many of them have been working with Kostas for many years. Opa!
Words cannot describe the wonderful experience staying at Mathios Luxury Homes. The staff was very accommodating and very friendly. The villa was beautiful with its own private pool. The hotel rooms themselves were very nice. Free breakfast every day. Kostos, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating with setting up our stay in Crete and Santorini along with airfares and cars. Thank you for a wonderful experiance.
