Guestbook comments from the manager

Given that we were looking for a little hideaway for exploring the island at a good price, Aura Marina was a great choice. These villas are very well constructed, and the finishes, furniture, and linens are of the best quality. Each villa has a small dipping pool that's great for cooling off under the sun, but they're not suitable for swimming. The property is very private and has a nice position on the hillside of Akrotiri, providing almost unobstructed views of the caldera.



Akrotiri is the quieter side of Santorini. There isn't a beach or many restaurants/services within walking distance of the villas, which would be my only caution to travelers. That said, there are several fantastic beaches that are reachable by scooter or 4wd within about 15-20 minutes. The manager was surprised that we hadn't rented a car for the 10 days that we spent there - her skepticism was understandable in retrospect. But we enjoyed the walks down to Perissa beach and Akrotiri's main square, and rented transportation for the days that we visited Oia, Thira, etc.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was shared by two women for five nights. We felt very welcome and safe the entire time. The complex is very clean and quiet. It was a bit early in the season to use the pool but it was cleaned regularly and was pleasant to sit beside. Our host, Dimitri, was extremely helpful, professional and spoke several languages. The patios and grounds are cleaned daily. The view, especially from the upper patio, was stunning. Everything we needed for cooking, etc was available to us.

The apartment is a 10 minute walk to the local taverna (good home cooking and ocean views.) The village of Akrotiri is a 15 minute walk to shops, restaurants and Red Beach. The apartments are at the south end of the island, so away from the heavy tourist areas.

Dimitri arranged a car and driver for us one day to visit Thira and Oia. Airport transportation was also arranged.

One thing to note: these units are not wheelchair accessible and the upstairs bedroom is accessed via a steep stair/ladder.

We would definitely stay at Aura Marina if we return to Santorini.

Outstanding location away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location with a spectacular view. Stayed 6 nights. Loved having our own private pool with a view. Dimitris even came at night to let us in after we locked ourselves out. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend.

WOW FACTOR!!!!!

WOW FACTOR!!

Where does one begin when talking about this amazing place Aura Marina Apartments on Santorini.

Nike is an absolute gem and accommodating in every sense of the word. She dealt with my endless email enquirers with great patience and never failed to reply to a single one.

She arranged airport Vehicle Hire for us on our arrival into Santorini and ensured that the Rental Company were scheduled to pick us up on our early departure.

Nike explained to us in detail directions to some of the best places to eat, where to buy groceries and even where the best location were for a beautiful sunset.

We took her advice on all her recommendations and were not disappointed.

The apartment itself was everything the pictures revealed and more. The breathtakingly gorgeous views out from your own private balcony off your bedroom was stunningly amazing. The sheer delight in watching the early sunrise from your private plunge pool area in the mornings and watching the sunset in this same area in the evenings was a bonus to enjoy after spending a day in Fira shopping and tackling a donkey ride.

Overall it had all the comforts of home and the only thing I would add is a Washing Machine and Dryer facility onsite as we found the laundry charges highly inflated.

Thank you Nike for a wonderful stay, apologies for the delay in posting this review, Chelsea and I have just returned from our European Tour and have just settled back into our everyday routine.

Kind Regards Philomena

Séjour idéal à Santorin

  • 5 of 5

Location très agréable suffisamment éloignée de la foule d’Oia. La vue sur la Caldera est magnifique. la maison confortable. Le plus : la grande terrasse et sa piscine.

Superbe

  • 5 of 5

Vue sur la caldeira splendide en particulier de la terrasse du toit la nuit! Terrasse agréable souvent rafraîchie par le vent.

Très bon accueil.

Magnifique plage (red Beach) à proximité

Seul petit bémol, nécessite une surveillance accrue avec des enfants en bas âge.

Une très bonne adresse à l'écart de l'agitation de Fira et oia

Aura Marina apartments are situated in Akrotiri in the southeastern part of Santorini. We are located near the archaeological site of Akrotiri, the famous Red Beach and the old lighthouse, where one may admire panoramic views of the volcanic caldera and the sunset.

Aura Marina apartments resemble a small village, comprised of nine houses, all decorated in a traditional but comfortable manner. All the houses boast a private dip pool, terraces and balconies with views of the Caldera.

The village of Akrotiri itself with its traditional little white houses and churches is within walking distance and just a couple of minutes by car. There one may find mini market and all the everyday shopping necessities. Akrotiri is only 6 km away from the port and 8km from the airport. The village is also serviced by the public means of transportation.
