Thanks very much to Panos and Tim for providing an excellent holiday destination - the house is a destination in itself and there is little motivation to leave it on a sunny day! The terrace is spectacular and the view has to be nearly unrivalled in Oia. House is simply but elegantly furnished and the 'sit-down' rain shower was quite the experience. Only criticism (as some have said before me) is that the 'heated' jacuzzi is not heated. It barely scraped by as tepid, and is certainly not warm enough on a cloudy day or an evening dip in May. It was lovely on a hot, sunny afternoon though. Nice and close (though lots of stairs of course) to Ammoudi Bay for sailing trips or to eat at one of the fish tavernas.
