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.

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

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.

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.

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.
