Commanding awesome views of the volcano and caldera from its majestic hilltop location, Michaela Residence is a peaceful 5-bedroom villa ideal for up to three couples or a family. The centerpiece of the villa is a private courtyard, which looks out to sea, and out at the back youll find an intimate alfresco dining area overlooking the old Castle of Akrotiri.
Clustered around the central courtyard are the main living areas. As you step through the front door, the villas playful character reveals itself. Bright paintings, intriguing pieces of art and elegant furnishings are all offset by harmonious views. On the ground floor, youll find an inviting living/dining room stocked with digital home comforts and a fully-equipped country kitchen with walls painted by a famous Greek artist.
Five individually styled bedrooms wait to usher you into dreamland each night. The Ladys bedroom, with its romantic setting, dressing area and adjoining red bathroom can be found on the ground floor. Upstairs, the elegant master bedroom boasts a dressing area, HDTV, a home theater, DVD player and relaxing sea views. It shares a blue bathroom with the double bedroom/mezzanine next door, which enjoys direct access to the terrace. The basement apartment receives natural light from the courtyard and benefits from a kitchen and living area. Bedroom five is also on the lower level, next to the spa room with Jacuzzi.
Although the inner rooms are extremely comfortable and a sanctuary to retreat to when the sun gets too hot, youll probably spend most of your time outdoors. The softly illuminated infinity pool extends a cool invitation any time of the day or night and there are various resting places from which to soak up the sunshine and beautiful views. An elegant lounge area, shaded by a pergola with fluttering white drapes, is a particularly atmospheric place to gather and chat by candlelight in the evenings. Stairs lead to another large terrace, the perfect spot to absorb unrivalled sea views. And if you love the tang of wood smoke, fire up the wood oven for a delicious family barbecue.
Do not worry about finding the Michaela Residence, as transfers will be arranged to and from the airport. If you choose to explore the area on foot, your villa is within 15 minutes walk of the beach and 10 minutes from Akrotiri town. The airport is a 20 minute drive.

Upon arrival the owner, Niko, did absolutely everything to help us settle in and feel welcomed. He even baked for us (best baklava ever!) and left us a cell phone with his number on the speed dial in case we needed anything. The villa is gorgeous, private, and extremely well maintained. Photos don’t do it justice. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, with plenty of closet and storage space. The air conditioning and all appliances functioned perfectly. We used the hot tub, the pool, and spent hours laying around on the patio lounge chairs and shaded couches. We felt a world away from work – which was beyond what we expected. Niko made numerous recommendations for us for sightseeing, private charters, restaurants. Should our travels find us in Santorini again, we would absolutely stay at this villa again. We can’t express our gratitude enough … Thank you, thank you, thank you! Absolutely outstanding experience!
