This villa was great and the host was fantastic. Maria (host) checked us in at 2am and was really attentive... even providing us water because we didn't have any and you can't drink the tap water due to the salty taste of the island's water supply. Our room was cleaned spotless each day and Maria even arranged for free transport back to the port. One thing to note, the location of the villa is: http://goo.gl/maps/0lU1e


Villa Pelekanos was a cozy and quiet place to stay at. The villa is runned by a friendly couple that will inform you about things to see in Santorini. They even pick you up at the port for free and make you a really good deal when you want to rent an atv (highly recommended to check out the whole island! Distance Villa - Oia is about 25 minutes by atv).Our room had seaview which was pretty nice. Rooms are big and clean, bathroom also. Wifi works excellent (3 routers!) and the pool is a big plus.


This hostel was the biggest dissapointment of our holiday. From the reviews and photos we had expected a beautiful little villa and looked forward to it our whole trip. When we arrived we were grumpily shown our room and given no information about facilities, breakfast, area, nothing. We had to stay in a triple room for a night despite booking a double and when we had to cancel a night (>24 hours in advance), due to a ferry change, she was again argumentative. Not a pleasant stay!


A good place to stay, staff were friendly and helpful. About a 20 minute walk to Fira which didn't bother us at all. Would recommend.

Don't be deceived by the location of villa pelekanos, it was super easy to get from place to place in the island. The owners are so hospitable and wonderful, the place is extremely comfortable and clean and we loved lounging around the beautiful pool area. This is one of the best hostels we've ever stayed at and we would definitely come back in a heartbeat!


Wow, this was just a great place to be at! The only problem is that is about 20 minutes walking distance from Fira, but other than that, the hostel was amazing! It didn't even feel like a hostel, but more like a hotel! We had a mini fridge, large private washroom, balcony, but the best were the owners! They were very kind! They will pick you up and drop you off at the port too, and I'd suggest doing that, as Google Maps shows the incorrect location. I would definitely stay here again!
