“Best rental!”
Reviewed 20 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Most of the properties around here have a stunning view so what made this time very special was our hostest. From the moment we walked in she made us feel so welcomed, helped us with anything needed. The service was incredible and to wake up in the morning with a breakfast laid out for us was just amazing.

The rooms are airy and nicely decorated. Great bathrooms, the pool was wonderful. Just everything was perfect! I would recommend this property to all my friends and would come back here again.

“the holiday of a lifetime”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012
3
people found this review helpful

Everything about Gran Canava is magical: the location, the accommodation, the whole experience. When we first arrived, I could not believe my eyes; the villa is located in the centre of Oia with easy access to all shops and restaurants, yet the terrace of the villa opens up to a 180 degree unobstructed view of the caldera, one of the most beautiful and transcendental views I have ever seen in my life. We would stare for hours without tiring at the caldera, and what is best, from within our own private swimming pool! We had so much fun in the pool as it's deep enough to dive in and long enough to swim around in. It can hardly get any better from there but I was in for an even greater surprise when we were shown to the interior of the villa and our rooms. The living room/dining/room/kitchen area is grande but authentic and very elegant. Each room has its own unique character, very tastefully presented and furnished with original antique furniture. Our bed was built in the rock and plastered with venetian stucco. The bathrooms were large and comfortable. It was just unreal! You can't help but feel incredibly special in this unique setting. Needless to say it was very clean, we had all amenities we could have hoped for and even freshly squeezed orange juice and omelette made for us in the morning. We were so content, we hardly felt the need to go anywhere. I could not help smiling all the time! I had some very deep relaxing sleep in the coolness of the rock. It's a real treat and I would recommend it without second thought to anyone! It's worth saving up for. It's bound to cure you of any stress and worries you may be carrying around. It's a real treat, it's the experience of a lifetime!

“A true Santorinian experience!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had an amazing time at the villa and the island and the service was superb. If I'll ever visit Santorini again, Grand Canava will be my first choice!
Breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere and surroundings were just breathtakingly beautiful.
Roxanne, thanks for the once-in-a-lifetime- experience!

“For An Unforgettable Stay in Santorini”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Santorini for sure is a great place to spend your vacation. But to have the best experience on this beautiful island you should also make the best choices. My friends and I couldn't have experienced it better with this villa and its wonderful & sweet owner. The location is simply amazing and convenient if you are looking to stay in Oia. Great volcano view from the villa, the infinity pool and terrace. Very spacious on the inside, well furnished and decorated with high attention to details.Very comfortable bedrooms.
I won't stress on the villa features and facilities because they're all written, as much as on the treatment we got from Roxanne. She had our cars and catamaran trip arranged before our arrival. She recommended the best restaurants and help us in booking (Koukoumavolos is a must!). Everyday there was new item on the breakfast menu. You feel that you own the villa and not just renting it for a week just like another hotel booking. Thank you Roxanne!

“The perfect week”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

people found this review helpful

My friends and I stayed here for a week on Funnymoon after a number of friends had travelled to the Northern Hemisphere for my wedding. We decided we wanted to go somewhere special and somewhere memorable and we spent a lot of time researching places across Europe that presented value for money and that something special.

We settled on Grand Canava in Oia very quickly once we found it. We all spent six months dreaming about how good the holiday could be and how perfect the villa looked. Let me tell you, every one of my friends was impressed beyond their expectations by the villa. It is absolutely perfect. The villa is immaculate and has the most incredible view which can be enjoyed either from the pool or from the deck chairs. There are six great rooms and each has its own unique aspect. The location could not be more ideal with a close market where fresh beers and greek snacks can be sourced within a minute from stepping out of the pool.

The management team and service team were absolutely awesome and made the stay so comfortable and easy. It was a week which none of us will ever forget. The villa made the week what it was. I can't recommend this villa highly enough!

All facilities are there, restaurants nearby and the breakfast is fantastic.

“Very good view and service!!!”

person found this review helpful

we stayed here with 8 other friends and booked all 3 sections of the Villa (1 room + 3 room + 2 room) so we had the whole place to our selves.

All 3 sections have equipped kitchens

The Pool is nice and clean, and also has a Jacuzzi.

The owner (Roxanne) was very helpful and the breakfast she arranged was pretty good.

Oia has beautiful views of the sunset, and the grand canava has an excellent vantage point.

Our stay was memorable and we really enjoyed our stay at the Grand Canava.

if you have heavy luggage, inform the owner and they will arrange to move your luggage down or up the steps to reach the hotel.
