“The best hotel experience ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Staying at Maria's Place (July 2014) was my best hotel Experience so far! The location is perfect, 10 min by foot away from Oia in a lovely quiet place, 100m away from the bus stop. From this bus stop you can travel to Fira(capital) and from there to any part of Santorini. At first we thought we would stay in Fira since hotels are much cheaper there, but we didn’t regret a single time that we stayed in Oia. Fira isn’t nearly as beautiful as Oia and sunsets over the white-blue houses on the Oia slopes are priceless!

The room at Maria's Place was surprisingly big (2-storey) with a wonderful see view and fast wifi. Anna and Kostas are just the best! Anna gave us a map of Santorini and explained very detailed about the attractions on the island. This was incredibly helpful since I thought the only attraction on Santorini was Oia. But there is much, much more to it! Kostas picked us up at the port and even brought us back there with his car on the day of our departure. The atmosphere at the hotel is so friendly and warm we didn’t want to go...

The only thing I didn’t like was the pool. It was nice and everything, but after getting out I had a bit of blue paint on my feet. And it’s opened till 19:00 only. Too bad, I was hoping to swim under the starry sky. But it’s really nothing compared to all the advantages of this place.

All in all, a great place to stay and for such a reasonable price! If we ever go to Santorini again we will definitely stay at Maria's Place.

I went to Santorini for Pre-wedding photo shooting last week. I stayed at Maria's Place for 5 nights and really feel like home there! The host, Anna, is so friendly and helpful, when she noticed that I would have pre-wedding photoshooting, she arranged a bouquet for me on the shooting day, I am really touched....she treated us like her friends rather than customers....

About the room, clean and comfy, with good view as well.

Overall, I really enjoy the stay there, if I visit Santorini again, I am sure I will re-visit Maria's Place again!

Thanks Anna, Thanks Maria's Place for giving me a memorable time in Greece :)

We stayed at Maria's place as the last leg of a 4 island Cyclades trip. As others say, the location is good, just a 10 minute walk to the heart of Oia, although the road is busy. The plus points are the rooms which are large and well equipped for self-catering. Coming at the end of our holiday, it was good to save some euros by having breakfast and lunch in.

The pool is good for cooling down but is not really for serious swimming, I was not out of my depth at any point and could sit down at the (very) shallow end. Rooms 11 and 12 have a little less privacy as there is only a low wall between the private terrace and the poolside area.

Maria's place is well managed by Anna and is a good choice for a low cost stay close to Oia.

This was an amazing place to stay. Anna was so helpful with everything. She gave is recommendations (Roka restaurant was INCREDIBLE), and she was a,ways willing to help with any question we had. Always friendly and asking if you are ok and are happy with your stay. We received a ride both from and back to the airport. The accommodation itself is really nice, pictures don't do it justice. We watched a sunset from the pool area as well as from our balcony and it was incredible without all of the crowds trying to find the best photo. A short walk into the centre of Oia and your right in the middle of a stunning village. Would recommend and definitely would return! Thanks Anna for a wonderful experience!

Perfect place! Anna is superb and will help you in anything you desire to find or do! Close to the "strip" but away from the tourist bustle so you get the perfect sunset by the pool and close to all the rest!
