My husband and I stayed at Spitia House for 7 nights we stayed in the top house which accomodates 2 persons.The bottom house accomodates more than 2 people and is bigger of course inside. This house also has sunset views unobstructed.From the point of initial contact with Panos(the owner) we knew we had chosen the right place. Panos is able to arrange a taxi transfer from the aiport to Spitia Houses and also for your return journey just let him know we did and our taxi was waiting there at the airport for us on arrival. Your first contact when you arrive will be with Tim . Tim works alongside Panos. Tim will carry your luggage from the meeting point in Oia where the taxi will drop you off to Spitia House which consists of Tim carrying luggage down steps and then back up a number of steps to reach the house through the village. However nothing to exhausting to be honest for us however we were not carrying our own luggage. Don't forget to tip Tim!! He is friendly , professional and responds to any queires, questions you may have. I must say again Tim deserves a medal for carrying the luggage in those temperatures through the village. Thank you again Tim.
Now for the house very private unlike some of the properties located around Spitia House where people are walking past those trying to sunbathe, relax and /or swim. Spitia has privacy walking back to our house at night we were so glad we chose Spitia. The top house where we stayed has a second terrace with unobstructed views of the famous sunset. We were able to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine in private watching the sunset. Both houses consist of a hot tub yes the water is cool during the day which is much needed given how hot it gets out there however the temperature can be adjusted just ask Panos/Tim and this can be addressed.
The home consists of one bedroom on the first floor of the house with storage to hang clothes and a safe, the kitchenette, bathroom with fantastic shower and lounge area on the ground floor.
The towels are provided which are changed daily and/or as requested the towels are excellent quality by the way. The kitchenette has everything required to cook a meal if you wish, cutlery, plates, pots, pan, glasses, coffee/teacups, wine glasses. The kitchenette has a coffee maker, coffee filters, coffee, kettle, teabags, sugar. The kitchenette also has a microwave and fridge for use if you wish. The house has everything one needs it really is a home from home but with spectacular views.
Breakfast is delivered every morning at a time your request this consists of 2 types of cereals, fresh milk, orange juice,bread, muffins, honey, greek yoghurt. This is more than adeqaute to start the day. Breakfast can be had on the terrace or indoors the choice is yours. There is maid service daily we saw the maid possibly twice during our stay that was because we were hadn't left the house when she arrived on 2 occassion it was around 11-11:30ish am however she will knock the door and ask if you mind her changing towels etc..This was not a problem for us as every other day we were up and out early as did not want to waste any time in exploring this beautiful island.
I could go on forever however would say go and experience Spitia House for yourself you will not be dissapointed a perfect location and a beautiful house excellent service from Panos, Tim and of course housekeeping don't stay anywhere else. We hope to return very soon and we will be staying at Spitia Houses.
