About George Delikouras
Hi I am George and with my wife Zinia we welcome you to the family's summer house in the world's top destination: Oia, Santorini! The house is a contemporary construction built on top of the ruins of an old windmill that existed at the same spot since the time of our grand-grand-fathers. The mill has three levels totaling a surface of 77 sq. mt. On the ground floor we find a fully equipped big modern kitchen, a living room with a sofa that transforms to a double bed and a bathroom with shower. The middle floor is a big bedroom with its own veranda and a spectacular view at the Aegean sea. The attic is where children love to sleep. It has two beds but can accomodate up to 4 children (or adults). The big advantage of the mill is its private yard equipped with wooden furnitura and an umbrella for sunlight protection it is ideal for breakfast or late night cocktails with music. The house has no airconditioning because it never needs it! Its unique location at the top of the cliff ensures cool air streams even during the hotest days and hours of the Greek summer. We are looking forward to receive your reservation George+Zinia
George Delikouras purchased this Mill in 1998

Sunset Windmill Oia
Very nice stay.
Beautiful windmill in the perfect location
The windmill was perfectly located for all the attractions in Oia. The accommodation was ideal and our favourite part was enjoying the sunsets from our balcony. Any issues were quickly addressed and resolved by our hosts
We enjoyed our stay at the windmill very much! Fabulous views of the sunset, close to the pool and the shops. Very impressed with the janitor, he came every 3 days to clean, change the sheets and towels. Plus lots of extras supplied - toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, sponges, shampoo & shower gel etc. Kitchen well equipped to prepare food if needed. The air conditioning and WiFi were excellent which was a bonus! People have previously mentioned the stairs bring steep but it’s no different to anywhere in Oia. We stayed with 3 children (including a 3 year old) and had no issues.
Very cool place with great views, would highly recommend.
Had a great time here.
When looking for a place to stay on Santorini for a month, I found the "Sunset Windmill". After confirming the dates, I had the opportunity to "chat" with George the owner about the windmill and my plans on the island. Needless to say, the "Sunset Windmill" is everything advertised and more! Its located in OIa, the best location to watch the sunset, about a 15 minute bus ride from Fira. The janitor meets you at the shuttle drop off and carries your luggage to the mill, after a quick orientation, your stay begins. Its very clean and well maintained.
It has all the comforts of home and more! The pool is near and plenty of restaurants, shopping, and markets nearby. Although it has one shower on the main floor, and it was just me most of the time at the windmill, I did have a couple guests stay for a week and the one shower was not an issue at all. The owner's wife checked in from time to time to ensure everything was okay. I should also add that the owners supplied a document on things to do/where to eat on Santorini. The month flew by and the hardest part was leaving the "Sunset Windmill", but I will definitely go back again. I should also add that I had the opportunity to meet George ,the owner, on my connection from Santorini to Rome, at the Athens airport. We had a great lunch and I learned a lot about the Sunset Mill, Santorini, Greece, and the owners. Don't miss the opportunity if you have the chance. 5 Stars +.
We thank you for your kind words. It was a real pleasure meeting you George!
Great family vacation house and terrific value.
The windmill was the perfect place for our family of five to stay. It is in a wonderful location and we used the nearby pool every day. We were able to easily enjoy nightly sunsets from the front porch then head out to a wonderful meal in downtown Oia. My daughter accidentally left her SD card behind and Zinia was able to locate and mail it to us quickly. George and Zinia are clearly in love with Oia and want their visitors to love it as well.
