Jon is best
We were 2 parents, 1 grandma, 2 eleven year olds. Stayed one week.
The host, Jon, an artist (painter) and former business man, is very friendly and forthcoming. He picked us up at the airport and arranged a rental car from a befriended company and passed onto us a special rate which was 30 Euro per day plus 7 Euro full insurance per day optionally.
The rooms are great and it is a small adventure for city people. Not everyone is staying in a former winery every day.
Jon the host, knows his island very well. He recommended us very good and price worthy restaurants in Perissa and Emporeio and a very good boat trip for 22 Euro per person which covers almost all you need to see in the Caldera area, like vulcano, hot springs, a small neighboring island and Fira.
On the last evening Jon made great supper for us and the kids (hamburgers, souvlaki, cheese and other greece dishes). Jon lives in Greek for already 35+ years and speaks the local language.
The rooms are great, TV and home surround system is great, but we did not use it much. Two showers and toilets available, a nice kitchen with large fridge. All in all with much love for details and very perfect matching of new and old things. We just loved it. His cat is lovely and joined us whenever we did some grilling on the roof top.
We can without doubt recommend the place and especially the host.
As our reviewer of Osnabrück said it, yes, Jon was described as a very good host and it made them suspicious, but well it is true, we confirm it.
One small downside was though, that the outside room was a bit warm in the night and the fan provided did help. But it was still very warm in that bedroom. But that may be an individual issue, others might find it not too warm.
