Majestic on its hilltop, commanding awesome views of the volcano and caldera, Michaela Residence is a peaceful 5-bedroom villa ideal for up to three couples or a family. The centerpiece of the villa is a private courtyard which looks out to sea and out back youll find an intimate alfresco dining area overlooking the old Castle of Akrotiri.
Clustered around the central courtyard are the main living areas. As you step through the front door, the villas playful character reveals itself. Bright paintings, intriguing pieces of art and elegant furnishings are all offset by harmonious views. On the ground floor youll find an inviting living/dining room, stocked with digital home comforts, plus a fully-equipped country kitchen and the Ladys bedroom. Upstairs, the bedrooms are built into the curved roof space and offer a calming retreat from the sun. The other bedrooms and a spa room with treadmill are in the basement and enjoy direct access to the courtyard.
Although the inner rooms are extremely comfortable and a sanctuary to retreat to when the sun gets too hot, youll probably spend most of your time outdoors. The softly illuminated infinity pool extends a cool invitation any time of the day or night and there are various resting places from which to soak up the sunshine and beautiful views. An elegant lounge area, shaded by a pergola with fluttering white drapes, is a particularly atmospheric place to gather and chat by candlelight in the evenings. Stairs lead to another large terrace, the perfect spot to absorb unrivalled sea views. And if you love the tang of wood smoke, fire up the wood oven for a delicious family barbecue.
Five individually styled bedrooms wait to usher you into dreamland each night. The king-size master bedroom boasts a dressing area, HDTV, a home theater and DVD player. It shares a bathroom with the double bedroom/mezzanine next door which enjoys direct access to the terrace. The basement apartment receives natural light from the courtyard and benefits from a kitchen and living area. Bedroom five is also on the lower level, next to the spa room.
A rental car is included in your accommodation, as well as transfers to and from the airport, so you dont have to worry about getting around. If you choose to explore on foot, your villa is within 15 minutes walk of the beach and 10 minutes from Akrotiri town. The airport is a 20 minute drive.

A beautiful villa in the most spectacular location. The Santorini heat is? by the constant warm breeze
Villa Michaela is a wonderful house on a quieter part of Santorini. The quality of the home is outstanding and it is very well-appointed. We enjoyed the pool and the outdoor area and the views are spectacular. Our hosts were also extremely friendly. They greeted us upon our arrival and were always available to help us arrange day trips or to answer questions.
A few things our group was not aware of prior to our arrival: The back of the house is located on a rather busy road, which is directly next to the pool. There is actually a look-out point just a few feet from the pool, so this interrupts the view and also your privacy. It was not ideal to have cars, buses and trucks passing by on the road at all hours, but we adjusted and made the best of it.
Second, the home is really for 3 couples, not 4 couples as advertised. The downstairs "apartment" bedroom is sub-standard accommodations and not suitable for this price point. The owner of the home agreed with us on this point.
