Guestbook comments from the owner

In life, we far too often find that things that sound perfect must be too good to be true! How wrong we were with our stay at the Seahorse Residence. From the moment we began our journey to staying there, everything felt comfortable. The booking process, communications with Chantal, silly and odd requests handled with respect and a feeling of welcome. However nothing prepared us for our arrival at the villa. After a long and tiring multi-stop trip from the States, we arrived in the late evening at the villa. The staff was there, waiting to greet us, get us settled in and provide us with nourishment…making us feel as if we had just arrived to our own home. When we awoke in the morning, everything that we had read; been told would happen; and we hoped was real…was indeed just that…absolutely real. Beyond real, it was magical. Our guests came and went throughout the time we were at the villa and as each and every one of them arrived, their jaws dropped and their eyes popped wide open at the luxury and warmth this historical and unique home provided. We never had a worry in the world, every little detail was taken care of with a smile. Having a personally crafted breakfast each morning with a view that is nothing short of breath-taking is something we or our guests will never forget. The option to have two private chefs, whose food rivals any Michelin starred chef we have ever eaten; was the best choice we could have made. Why go out to a crowded restaurant, deal with tight table seating and other patrons, when each night we could have a personally designed meal served by chefs who love what they do…and with a view that would be coveted by anyone visiting Santorini. To say our stay at the Seahorse Residence was magical is simply an understatement, but truthfully you cannot put into words how you feel while you are there. You only long to have the honor of returning again to this enchanted place. ‘Madame’ Chantal has created something so special and memorable. We are honored to have been her guests and look forward to visiting again next year!

The Perfect Stay in Santorini

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to put into words just how perfect our stay at the Seahorse Residence was. We rented out the entire villa (15+ people) for our wedding party for the week and were waited on hand and foot the entire time. Chantal made sure every single person was taken care of, the chefs cooked us custom incredible meals using all fresh local foods, the breakfast options were to die for, and the rooms were kept spotless the entire time. Anything we needed at any point, Chantal was there to help us or connect us with someone on the island. She helped us arrange boat trips, transportation (including a trip to the grocery story and all airport transfers), carried our luggage (and we had plenty!), gave us bottles of the best wine, provided tips of what to do and see, etc. I could go on and on about how this villa will make your stay in Santorini like no other. It's situated right off the path but is hidden enough that you don't hear any of the noise and feels like you're in your own paradise. Not to mention, the views from the rooms are AMAZING. Cannot recommend the Seahorse Villa highly enough, book now because it will be the best decision you could ever make for your trip to Santorini!!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

A group of 15 of us stayed at Chantal's place and it was pure bliss and magical. The views are so amazing and the property is in great shape. We really enjoyed our stay here because everything was taken care of, from delicious breakfast every morning, to organizing transportation, to laundry service and help with our wedding festivities. Chantal made sure we were happy. She really is an awesome person and owner of Seahorse Residence. She was super helpful wherever needed and went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend her place to anyone staying in Santorini. The villa is very private and secluded and has great little nooks to hang out at. We just wish that the hot tub was hot so we could make more use of it especially at night. Everything else was great and the rest of the staff are very friendly and nice. Thank you so much for making our stay very comfortable and welcoming.

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We choose to rent a home this year for the first time because there were going to be 16 of us and thought it would make for a different experience. We were flying in from the states and our Cyprus family was meeting us in Santorini, we all had great accommodations and were happy to wake up every morning to a home made breakfast cooked by a fabulous husband and wife chef Xenophon and Athena. They also cooked our last dinner at the house for us that was out of this world delicious! Chantal the owner was accommodating and easy to work with, anything we requested she went out of her way to locate such as yoga mats, alcohol preferences, someone to make a blueberry pie for my husbands birthday, anything we needed. The staff was delightful! The views were the best on the Island, it was amazing to wake up every morning and see such beauty outside your door. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you Chantal and your staff for a lifetime of memories with our family that will never be forgotten! Tassos and Dolores Paphites.

OMG!!! - To beautiful for words.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing trip to Greece and Sea Horse Villa was the highlight. As my son said "this is better then where the Kardashian's stayed when they went to Santorini" (I am not a fan but found that funny).

The views are breathtaking and the location terrific as it's just below the pedestrian walking path that connects fira to firostefani - you have everything you could want within a 10 minute walk. The villa is in perfect condition, very clean and well maintained. The owner, Chantal, is terrific and ensures every need is met. And the staff (yes you have staff) is amazing. The chefs, Xenophon and Athina, are great. They prepared breakfast and we also hired them to cook a tailored dinner which is a MUST do!!! The remaining staff were fantastic - Anna, Tonia and Kostas. They even did our laundry while we were here!!!

The villa does have a lot of steps, as does everywhere in Santorini, so be sure your group is ok with steps. The pool is perfect and the hot tub great. The views are amazing. I expected our stay at Sea Horse Villa would be a trip highlight but it was better then I ever imaged.

If you go to Santorini then make sure you spend time at Sea Horse Villa. I promise it will be the highlight of your trip also.
