“Deceptive advertising & mold ”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We booked this property based on a low price for a 5 BR home which would sleep 10 people-which escalated after we made the booking for only 3. We paid 150 per night which had to be paid in advance.
What is not explained is there are 3 separate bookable apartments. I even asked for clarification and the owner said we would have the "whole house." What we had was the downstairs 3 bedroom unit, while other noisy guests got the upper 1 br lofts. You can hear the washing machine, talking, walking, etc through the ceiling.
There is one king bed, which is quite comfortable as long as you don't move. The sheets are not big enough. The other beds are doubles and are quite firm.
The bathroom, living room,and at least one of the bedrooms
has a serious mold problem. There is a snail living on the bathroom wall. Though the unit seemed clean on our arrival, the floor made our socks black and there was no cleaning supplies.
The kitchen is very nice with good working appliances. Though they are with German or Greek words, we were able to use YouTube to find out how to use them. There were no hot pads or dish towels.
There is a washer, though it left our clothing smelling rancid. The drying racks are attached to the upstairs lofts. It would have been helpful to have o e in our unit.
The wifi is the best we had throughout Europe- we could even watch Amazon videos.
The location is very convenient for someone not wanting to rent a car- you can get on the walking trail across the street,and go to Fira or Oia. We rented a car and were able to park at the house.
I would not recommend anyone renting if you have allergies to mold. We had little contact with the owner during our visit.

We rented the house downstairs - very spacious and comfortable but equipment was a little outdated.
This is really a great location, with easy access to the caldera for lovely walks. It's also convenient to visit the island; I strongly reocmmend renting a car!
Also, the owner gave us some very useful tips and contributed to the quality of our experience.

“Convenient location but dated furnishing and equipments”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We took the downstairs house with 2 bedrooms and a single room upstairs. The room upstairs is very basic and small. The bed dings are old. The downstairs house is spacious with sofa, dinning table and a full kitchen but the equipments are rather old. The sofa set needs refurbishment or cleaning up. Curtains are old and somewhat stained. It is a pity as the location is good, you can walk to view the caldera and sunset. It is at least a twenty minutes walk downhill to Fira. There are a few eateries nearby. Look for better alternatives if you can.
