We had an absolutely amazing time here.
We got the ferry over, and were met by George at the harbour. He drove us back to the villa, and pointed out all the interesting landmarks and good-to-know places on the way. There was some mix up with the booking, and we were given a twin room with a kitchenette. It was very spacious, with all the amenities we needed. We had a small patio area with a table and chairs too.
The location is second to none in Perissa- 5 minutes from the beach and all of the great restaurants on the beach front, lovely bars and restaurants along the road, and right beside the bus stop to go to Fira and Oia. We rented a quad from Nick the Greek around the corner at Georges recommendation, and wouldn't dare spend a minute in Santorini without one! Nick was really nice and we rented at very reasonable prices. There is also a bakery 2 minutes from the hotel with beautiful fresh bread and pastries.
George and his family were amazing at all times. From giving us information about the island, to knocking on our door and serving home made, fresh food (it was a tomato ball of some sort and unbelievably delicious!), offering glasses of their home made wine, they accommodated our every need, want, and more!
The island is magical, and hospitality like George's makes it extra special!
If I get my way, we'll be back!
