Ranked #37 of 58 Hotels in Oia
Reviewed 17 July 2013

This hotel exceeded expectations. It came recommended from a friend, and we couldn't have been happier. It is a little out of the hustle and bustle of oia town, but the walk up to the village immerses you in the real community of the island, and is a pleasant 25 minute stroll. The view from the balcony was enough to keep us there to watch the sun go down on both of our nights stay, and we found the facilities more than sufficient to cook up a couple of tasty meals from local produce. Christopher was a wonderful host, providing us with an invaluable insight into the best that the island had to offer, from food to activities, and helping to organize them all. Can't recommend highly enough!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, and the view was incredible. The ground floor had direct access to the l...

Christopher is a great host and sits down to explain everything about the island before your exploring begins! He also organised quads for us and did our laundry but turned everything pink. The hotel is pretty far away from any action such as the pubs and restaurants of fira and the beautiful beaches of Kamari and Perissa! It is located about 20 minutes from Oia where there are some nice restaurants. The worst part of the stay was the bed in our room. It was like a bunk bed with a ladder up to it, was not romantic at all trying to climb into bed and crawl out to get down!

Our stay at Ecoxenia was perfect. The apartment style room had a kitchenette, two beds, breakfast nook, patio - with bistro set and lounge chairs. Everything was very clean and readily available. Christopher was the most gracious host. He showed us all the points of interest on a map and wrote down everything we would need to know for us. He helped with every request we had! The grounds are very well maintained and they soon will have an outdoor bar on-site to go along with the outdoor seating/lounging areas and hot tub. I would recommend Exocenia to anyone wanting to stay in Oia, Santorini. I couldn't have enjoyed my time there more!

Room Tip: Rooms on the top two floors have the best views.

When I chose to go visit Oia I expected accommodation to be expensive.... And it was at the touristy town hotels. Here's the surprise - Ecoxenia is not located in the town. It's a 3 minute drive away (15 minute walk) but offers a much better view of the famed Santorini sunset than those other pricey options overlooking the caldera.With all the amenities of a service apartment, its more private, quiet and exclusively intimate at a fraction of the cost. In fact I proposed to my girl on the balcony of our apartment amidst the gorgeous sunset. New visitors to the island will also appreciate the hospitality of owner Christopher who greets you with a drink of your choice before patiently running though all the things to do in Santorini and booking whatever you need, from car rentals to boat tours. His recommendations for food were spot on and we didn't have a single meal we didn't like! Three thumbs up

Room Tip: When it comes to a good views, the higher the floor the better. We had a perfectly good view from wh...

We enjoyed an outstanding week staying at Ecoxenia. Christopher was an extremely friendly, helpful and informative host. The accommodation was first rate, with a lovely view over the garden to the sea. We enjoyed an invigorating walk up to Oia each day, and from there could use the frequent (often crowded even in May) buses or walk to explore the island. But it was good to stay a little distance outside the town where the only disturbance was the sound of bells on grazing donkeys.

this trip was awesome and staying at Ecoxenia was a great decision. Christopher (owner) is so helpful and knowledgeable about the area. the apartment I stayed in was so cute and and kept very clean. the gardens onsite are so peaceful and a nice touch to the property. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I had always wanted to go to Santorini and see Oia's sunset and I must admit that staying in Ecoxenia made my perfect stay even better!!! From the very first letter I sent inquiring about reservation till the very last moment all was excellent! I loved the place, the people, the location as well as the beautiful scenery! I have already recommended it to many of my friends and hope that everyone feels as happy as I was there once!
