A truly unique traditional Greek style property in a spectacular setting overlooking the Aegean Sea. This beautifully appointed two bedroom and two and a half bath house, is perched on a cliff in the town of Oia.

This home features two separate bedrooms, both queen bedded, which is ideal for two couples traveling together, or a family of four. The bedrooms have queen-size beds, a built in armoire, air-conditioning, and a ceiling fan. There are two separate bathrooms with shower to ensure maximum privacy. An additional half bath is located on the main floor. In addition, there is a third bedroom with bunk beds - suitable for children only.

The setting of this property includes a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and volcanic islands. There is a lovely verandah with pergola facing the sea, where you can enjoy your meals and the spectacular sunsets.

About Gina Galloway

I am a Greek citizen born in the USA, and I spend most of my summers in Greece. I live in Virginia during the winter months with my husband and three children. The house is most often used by my family and friends during the summer months, as well as given for use to the Greek Church and other charitable organizations. Because of this, we have very limited availability.

Why Gina Galloway chose Santorini

Santorini is the jewel of Greece and the views cannot be surpassed anywhere in the world. The beauty and tranquility of Santorini and the Caldera owns itself to a relaxing holiday. Oia's Dream has a truly spectacular, 180 degree - unobstructed view of the Aegean Sea. It is all about the views in Santorini and Oia has one of the best on the island. The small private pool is also a welcome change from having to compete for chairs and space at other hotel pools. The space is great compared to other properties as well, and together with the private driveway and parking makes this one of the very best places to stay.

What makes this house unique

The most magnificent views you will ever see from any house anywhere in the world. The comment I always get is that the views are even better than the pictures! The private driveway and private parking directly in front of the house is also a very big bonus - no steps to climb! Together with the space and private pool/veranda, this is a great place to relax and unwind on your Holiday.

Oia's Dream, a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Oia's Dream for a week in August. The description of the villa is spot on. Gina was wonderful with helping to coordinate our stay. Between her suggestions and the recommendations in the guestbook, we had more than enough to do for the week. The location is very good and the views of the caldera were breathtaking. Close enough to walk to Oia but far enough out that you can enjoy the views and some privacy. We had dinner twice at the restaurant across the street, Santorini Mou. Great food, reasonable priced and a super atmosphere.

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two of our best friends stayed three nights in Gina's home and truly wish we had more time there. The home was perfect, better than all of our expectations. The views were breath taking. It was a short and easy walk to the middle of Oia where you could find great shopping and restaurants. A bus stop right out front if wanting to travel into Fira. Gina provided us with amazing recommendations prior to our arrival and they all were spectacular. Unfortunately, we lost our luggage while traveling and Gina went above and beyond to help up with the process, which was appreciated more than I can explain. If we travel back to Greece, this is where we will be staying. As a bonus there is an amazing restaurant that sits across the street called Santorini Mou with great food, music, atmosphere and staff. They treated us like family!

Owner's Response: Dear Molly, Thanks so much for your kind words! I hope you finally received your luggage, which took a trip around the world!!! It can really ruin your vacation but you got past it and enjoyed your time at Oia's Dream and I do hope you come back again soon. Gina

Outstanding Santorini

  • 5 of 5

The view of the Caldera is even more incredible than you can see online. I had to pinch myself every morning when I sipped my coffee from the spacious veranda and marveled at the scenery! Our stay at Oia's dream was the best vacation we had every experienced. I investigated several properties in Santorini on the Caldera and I could not find anything comparable to a 2 bedroom suite (which was smaller than Oia's Dream) for less than 1,000 Euro per night. The location in Oia was so convenient to shopping, dining and the nightlife for our group. In addition, we had our own private pool and didn't have to fight over pool chairs which is common at resort properties. The house is charming and beautifully decorated in traditional greek style. Oia's Dream was truly a "dream come true"!

A great time, great location in Oia

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful. This home is at an excellent location in Oia, close enough to walk to the main strip of Oia with its shops and restaurants, but removed enough to enjoy the breathtaking Caldera views on the deck, in the pool, and at sunset with tranquility and privacy. We rented a car and were able to park at the house. We enjoyed several nights at Santorini Mou, the restaurant across the street. We caught the hiking trail from Oia to Fira from the house. And it was close enough to walk to Domaine Sigalas, the vineyard in Oia. Right out of a dream! Thank you!

Beautiful, great location, perfect for 2 couples

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 couples who stayed here for a week without a car. It is an easy walk into Oia but outside the really busy, crowded part of town. You do have to walk on the road but only for a very short way. If you turn left and go up the hill at the desalination plant you can get onto the pedestrian walkway that runs between Fira and Oia. The pictures of the view speak for themselves but of course are not as good as when you are there in person. The villa is clean, the beds are comfortable and the housekeeper, Thespina, is very pleasant and responsive. When she noticed that we were actually doing some cooking in the kitchen, she brought us an entire new set of pots! It was still just a little too cold to use the pool while we were there but it appeared very well maintained.

We ate at Santorini Mou across the street a couple times. It is friendly and fun with pretty good food. However we prefered the food at Finikia's Place up the road a little bit away from Oia. We ate there several times.

My only quibble is that the internet service does not work inside the house (as we were told ahead of time). Between the wind and the sun it was not always possible to sit on the patio to access the internet. This made it a little inconvenient for contacting tour guides, etc. Fortunately, none of us needed to do work while there.

As long as you do not need reliable internet access, I highly recommend this villa.
