“Great place for a longer stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

We stayed for 21 nights, we had a great time. Vincent was very helpful with our booking and was waiting for us when we arrived, his local knowledge was great and he introduced us to Nikos at the Charlina and we ate there several times. The room was comfortable, quiet and traditional, it was a bit tired and the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner, nothing major just a bit more care. We enjoyed staying there, we shared some nice evenings and wine in the garden with Vincent and other guests.

Room Tip: We stayed in the split level apartment, and would recomend it.

We booked the apartment at 'Cool Cat' for our honey. The reviews and online brochure pictures we saw sold it to us.

Vincent was very efficient in getting back and booking up for us and always very friendly.

On arrival we were shown around and recommended places to eat and shop which was good local knowledge.

The location is fantastic, a minute from the beach with it's many bars and restaurants- great base if you have a car (highly recommended) to see this beautiful island.

The apartment was disappointing. Bathroom dirty- the sink hadn't been cleaned and the shower curtain needs replacing and was held up with old string and wire.

Kitchen was basic but half decent crockery and utensils would have been nice- metal ware rusty and crockery a mix of old plastic and bits and pieces.

The bedroom and living room are simple but ok- everything just a bit tired.

We're not fussy people and I feel bad for writing this but it was quite expensive compared to what you can get and for that price and for our honeymoon it wasn't good enough.

If they spent two days worth of what we paid improving the apartment it'd be so much better.

I see from other reviews that they were picked up and dropped off at the airport. Vincent did book us a cab to get there and he did drop us off but did charge us 20 euros which I thought wasn't very nice.

Could and should have been better but we still had an amazing time in Santorini- it's a great place with friendly people, lots to see and so many beaches.

Brilliant. We spent 2 weeks in one of the studios available and we have had very good time. Vincent and Francoise are lovely people, flexible and available to help for whatever you ask. They are animal lovers (their efforts towards them in the island is really admirable), and we would suggest them to anyone it is as well. Thank you guys, hope to be back soon in Santorini. We really think it will be at The Cool Cat again,

Fantastico. Siamo stati 2 settimane in uno dei monolocali disponibili ed è stato molto bello. Vincent e Francoise sono persone deliziose, davvero disponibili e d'aiuto per ogni cosa tu possa chiedere loro. Sono amanti degli animali (e gli sforzi che fanno per loro sull'isola sono davvero da ammirare) e gli suggeriamo a tutti coloro che lo sono a loro volta. Grazie ragazzi, speriamo di tornar presto a Santorini. Siamo sicuri sarà di nuovo a The Cool Cat.

We rented an apartment at the Cool Cat for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The owner Vincent was very welcoming, even picking us up from the airport on our arrival. He made us at home and even gave us a bottle of wine and some small gifts to commemorate our Civil partnership. The apartment was on 2 levels and was simple in the Greek style and clean. Only a few yards from the beach which made it easy to get back and forth in the 31 degrees heat. What we loved most about it was the wonderful garden that had so obviously been designed with love and care. The owners are animal lovers (hence the name) and take care to look after animals on the island. The views are fabulous and we felt very at ease there, Vincent could not do enough to make us comfortable and gave lots of advice on local sights and amenities. When we left, we were presented with another gift as a memento of our stay. Highly recommened.

The apartments and grounds are very clean and well maintained. The hosts, Vincent and Francoise are welcoming and extremely helpful. The beach is clean and the water is incredibly clean and clear. The apartment is located 50 metres from the beach and it is easy to go back and forth for lunch, etc.

There are several really good restaurants along the beach but our favourite was the Restaurant Charlina which is on the way to the beach .. Mainly because of Nikos and Phillippe who were most welcoming and really offered special service to the regulars.

Unlike staying at Oia or Fira, we had the beach everyday and could easily visit the main cities using the public transit buses which were fairly new coaches and cost only 2.20 euro to get from the beach to Fira.

Great value with lots of hospitality, charm and Greek sunshine.

We were looking for a relaxing beach holiday with a bit of sightseeing. What we got was actually better. The accommodation we rented is very close to one of the best parts of a wonderful beach. The accommodation is simple but adequate - and very good value for money. The owners are charming, hospitable and very helpful. We would return.

The Cool Cat is has a stunning garden and beautiful deco. The rooms are simple but adequate, comfortable and quaint. The Cool Cat is quiet and private. The service is great and friendly with a personal touch. Stunning views and very close to the beach, restaurants, etc. Loved the personal contact with the owners, with their advice and suggestions and also the privacy they gave us. Would have prefered a double bed and not too singles.
