Seriously, if you are considering Santorini as part of your trip, YOU HAVE TO at least consider staying at Villa Manos. Here is a quick breakdown
- Nice pool with a bar next to it for busier nights, great lounge chairs
- Transfer to property from port / airport included
- Clean units, with a rustic "by the sea" look, with drapes in doors leading to our balcony.
- Poppy (owner) knows her stuff and she already answers for every basic questions you have RIGHT UPON YOUR ARRIVAL. Like where are the beaches, where are the nicest ones, how to use local buses, etc..
- You can also book a wide array of day trips through her. (You gotta do the 1 day Santorini trip, you will have done everything pretty much in 1 day, leaving you the rest to relax and/or explore)
- THey also offer breakfast ($) and laundry services ($).
- Located about 10-15 min walking from Fira! Or bus takes 1min for $1,60 euro.
- We even got a surprise upon checkout!! (I wont spoil it)
- Not really a negative, but since it was low season (mid october), the bar at the pool was pretty much closed in the evenings, but the pool water was cold anyway at this point. the Sea is warmer...
Overall, out of my 2 week trip, this was by far the best place I have stayed at (out of 6 establishments). The owners are super relax, friendly and always willing to help you out, even for ride out to town at 9PM!
Tip: Rent an ATV, you can go across the whole island in about 1 hour with it so you get to go to beaches other tourists won't usually go.
