Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Greece - Cactus Villa

Sea views at the front, mountain views at the rear.

Our property is composed of three adjacent villas set in an acre of private land. The south villa, the north villa and the new villa. The first two villas have only one bedroom and can accommodate up to 4 people. The new villa has a second bedroom in the cellar and can take up to 6 people. Quiet and spacious, laid out on two levels, each of our homes is the ideal accommodation for a couple or a family of four. The upper level has the master bath and bedroom as well as a balcony to watch your most memorable sunrises from. The ground level consists of a living room with a couch/bed for two, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining table for 6 people, and a bathroom with shower. Each little villa looks out to an airy and shady patio table and chairs for relaxing and enjoying a cold drink or having lunch or dinner. Tastefully decorated, the house will make you feel at home. Our purpose is to make guests feel that they move to their own holiday house in Santorini. Laundry facility is only in the south villa.

One villa is separate from the other so that each party of guests is not disturbed by the other. Perfect, though, for friends who travel together and want to be close but separate.

1) SOUTH VILLA has a bigger outdoors covered space and a washing machine. It can accommodate up to 4 people. 2 in the bedroom and 2 in the sofa-bed on the ground floor.

2) NORTH VILLA has a day bed area in the back facing the mountain for a perfect evening chillout. It can accommodate up to 4 people. 2 in the bedroom and 2 in the sofa-bed on the ground floor.

3) NEW VILLA has a second bedroom in the cellar with two beds which is perfect for the children to have their own space. It can accommodate up to 6 people. 4 in the two bedrooms and 2 in the sofa-bed on the ground floor.

The houses are surrounded by one acre of land which carries pine, fig, apricot, lemon, olive trees, and a huge collection of cactuses. Right outside our walls there is three tiny churches which our visitors are free to visit.

About Anna

I came in Santorini about 25 years ago as a tourist and I was spellbound by this place. I have my own business on the island. Lately I bought this beautiful house at the most quiet spot for my retirement. Until then I have decided to rent it.

Anna purchased this villa in 2011

Why Anna chose Greece

I chose this part of Santorini because of its peacefulness and its rural atmosphere which is rare in super touristy Santorini.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was perfect! I love the details in the house. The kitchen was fully equipped and Included a coffee machine. The house was very peaceful and conveniently located between Thira and Oia. It was easy to find and Anna and her husband were very helpful. We cooked most nights at the villa and they even went out to get us fresh fish and produce! I have absolutely no complaints, I would absolutely recommend staying here and will definitely stay here again if in Santorini!

Perfect Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Anna's home was beautiful, clean, and a peaceful escape from the crowded, touristy parts of the island. It had every comfort of home. We especially enjoyed the outdoor living space relaxing in comfy chairs on the shaded patio & enjoying amazing sunrises from the balcony. There was plenty of space for our kids (ages 7 & 9) to run around and explore. We had great communication with Anna & Nikos prior to and during our stay. They made us feel very welcomed & like nothing was too much trouble. They had very helpful suggestions of what to see, where to eat, good beaches, etc. We loved every minute there! We would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful rental, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here during the Easter holiday. Anna and Nikos were the most gracious hosts and invited us to join them at every step of the celebration. They even brought us midnight lamb on Easter. The apartment is modern and lovely with a perfect view of the sea and a terrace for outdoor dining or cocktails. The location outside of town meant quiet and peace after the hectic crowds of Fira and Oia. Nikos and Anna have a jewelry store in Oia with the most creative jewelry I've come across in a town known for its original jewelry. Be sure to visit. Great hosts, beautiful location, comfortable and modern apartment. We would definitely stay again.

Don' Ignore This Property

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in South Villa & savoured the tranquillity of the surrounding area but the nearness of Oia. The house was clean, bright, and with super views to the sea in front & the hill behind. It was lovely hear to our neighbour's goats' bells tinkling during the day & the herder was very friendly.

Nikos was full of great advice & tips on how to make our stay even better & his attention to the cactus garden in front of the property is really paying off. A thoroughly enjoyable & relaxing holiday with plenty to do & see on offer . I do recommend it. Louise & Syd

Beautiful, relaxing setting on the perfect island

  • 5 of 5

Nicos welcomed us on our first day and was very welcoming despite us arriving 30 minutes late! He told us about the area and where we could visit on the island including where to watch the magical sunsets from the perfect spot away from the huge crowds.The villa itself is wonderful. It is away from the busier parts of the island (so you will need a car) but for me, this is a good thing. The villa lies at the bottom of a mountain and is a couple of minutes from the ocean including a gorgeous, small beach which few people know about it. The views are amazing and at night you can see a sky full of stars. Inside, you have everything you need and the bedrooms are lovely with a big terrace outside to relax on. We were fortunate enough to stay in both villas and both were equally nice. There are many delicious figs and prickly pears growing around the property but beware when picking the prickly pears!! Anna and Nicos have a jewellery shop, Bezant, in the beautiful Oia where we passed by on a couple of occasions (one time to pick up a spare key after losing one... oops!). They were always warm and friendly. You must visit Santorini and if you do, I highly recommend staying here. Fira, Oia and Imerovigli are all within 20 minutes drive but if you want something away from the hustle and bustle then definitely consider this place. We hope to be back some day! Thank you Anna and Nicos for a wonderful stay.

Tranquility in Santorini

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including our sons ages 12 and 16) had a wonderful stay in the South Villa this past July. This place is a fantastic value for Santorini and a great location (more rural, looking out to sea on the very different northeast coast), but only a 15 minute drive to the action in Oia. Yes, you will need to rent a car if you stay here. There is no pool, but who really needs one when some of the natural best beaches are in this region. There is a secluded one just 1/2 mile north of this villa that had a red rock backdrop and only a handful of people (as compared to the overly crowded famous Red Beach at the south end of the island). I hate to even let out this bit of info. The villa itself is simple, charming, clean and comfortable for a family of four. We enjoyed making and eating our leisurely breakfast at the outside table on the beautiful patio. Unfortunately, we only had 3 out of our reserved 6 nights here. Our arrival from Bodrum, Turkey to Santorini was delayed 3 days due to the port closing in Bodrum on account of high winds. However, we made the most of our 3 days/nights. The owners, Nicos and Anna, were so gracious to not charge us for those 3 lost nights! Nicos was also so kind to bring us a bunch of fresh eggs and heirloom tomatoes in an array of colors and sizes, along with juice and local bread on our first morning. He is also a wealth of information. Also, Anna and Nicos have a nice jewelry shop, Bezant, in Oia. They have gorgeous pieces! We would definitely return to this villa the next time we visit Santorini. Thank you Anna and Nicos for your graciousness. We hope to meet again!

Location

Car: necessary

By a fishermen's port, and looking at the sea, this house is conveniently located between Fira and Oia, the two prime destinations of Santorini.

A quiet sandy beach is at walking distance. The nearest organized beach, Vourvoulos beach, is just 2 miles away.One more beach with umbrellas and strechers is in baxedes on the way to Oia 5 minutes by car. The closest taverna and mini-market is in the village of Vourvoulos less than 2 miles from the house. Many more taverns and restaurants as well as super markets, tourist offices and rental car agencies can be found at Fira or Oia, both just 5 miles away.

The house is surrounded by one acre of land which carries pine, fig, apricot, lemon, olive trees, and a huge collection of cactuses. Right outside our walls there is three tiny churches which our visitors are free to visit.

The other way towards Fira, is Vourvoulos beach with a fish tavern next to a picturesque fishermen's port.
