I want to comment our host and his staff for excellent service. I stayed in a two-bedroom apartment with a friend featuring a cozy, private porch, and stunning sunset view at the tip of the island. Despite hordes of sunset seekers, it's quiet back there at other times. Kitchen area was perfect for snacks and uncorking great local wines from the little market down the street.

We stayed in the traditional windmill for our honeymoon and it was a lovely experience. The spaces surrounding the windmill was ours and it's the perfect spot for sunset. We do not have to squeeze with the crowds. There were outdoor tables and chairs for us to use while we caught the sunsets.

Spiridoula and her husband are such lovely hosts who ensured our needs were met. If there's ever a chance to return to Santorini, i'll definitely pick Golden Sunset Villas again.

when we stayed at this hotel one and half years ago we had a great time. made another visit to oia earlier this month the poperty impressed us again.

the same apartment we had last time was updated with bigger and more modern bathrooms. same great location. same best spot to watch the sunset. the owners were as nice as the last time.

my last review of this hotel still remains true. if we come back to oia again this will be the place for us to stay. two thumbs up!

This is the most magical of places that i had the opportunity to stay. We were celebrating our daughter's second birthday and stayed here for three days. I had previously heard of Santorini being a lil paradise on earth but seeing is believing. This cute place is situated high up in the peaks of Oia and it has fantastic views.The rooms are nicely done nothing fancy but comfortable. The breakfast was lacking variety, it could have had more options.
During our stay in October it rained once and there was crazy storm in the night, felt like the whole place would come apart but i must say this is a solid structure and except for a bit of water coming in the room from beneath the door it wasn't really as bad as i had imagined.
The place has breath-taking views and it is very close to the other areas of interest in Santorini which is why it is ideal and value for money too. They are helpful in arranging rent a cars and you would be needing those anyways to commute to the nearby towns/villages.
The staff at the reception is very helpful and we loved our stay here.

The private balconies make this place. Each room has a private place from where they can view the sunset. You only realize the value of this when you see others lining the streets to watch the sunset. It's pretty much the last hotel on the western edge of the island, so it offers completely uninterrupted views of the sunset. The rooms themselves are big, but simple. The bathrooms are small, but sufficient. The breakfast is lacking in options, but then again, this isn't a fancy resort, and there are many restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The owners are very friendly and are available to offer suggestions on restaurants etc.

If you're looking for a comfortable place, in an excellent location, with the best view of the famous Santorini sunset, Golden Sunset villas is the perfect choice!

After my fifth war, my rather deserving wife of 29 years asked for a vacation. I told her I would take her anywhere on the planet for as long as she wanted. She said she wanted to visit the Cyclades, Santorini in particular, plus Athens and London. I told her to book it. She did.

Arriving in Santorini's port on a high-speed catamaran (upgrade to first class for very little money), we were located by our driver and taken to Golden Sunset Villas, which my wife had selected after considerable research. Man, can she do research.

Approaching the resort's office from the parking lot out back, we stepped around the corner and stopped dead in our tracks, stunned at what our eyes were seeing: the mythical caldera and the cliffside village of Oia, the deep blue sea, and obviously what the Big Cheese had in mind when he created Heaven; an unobstructed view at that. We eventually snapped out of it and were greeted very warmly in the little office. Check-in was easy and a bellman collected our bags and showed us to our room, which was a two-room cave house (#3) with simple furnishings in proper keeping with the resort's theme. Our semi-private patio (a low wall separates it from the neighboring patio) had a table, chairs and umbrella at which we would sit in the evening while enjoying the very best view of the fabled Oia sunset, which is quite an event every evening.

Oia is a fantastic place for dining, scenery, shopping and relaxation. We stayed four nights at Golden Sunset Villas, which was clearly the exact right choice. If you can get cave house #3, all the better due to how your view is flawless. The staff was super nice and friendly.

We will stay at Golden Sunset Villas when we return, and we will return.

Room Tip: Get cave house #3.
