Villa was large enough to accommodate 4-6 people comfortably, but can sleep 9.

Penelope is the star of this operation. She was very friendly before and during our and very willing to accommodate. She met us in our villa when we arrived to check us in there at the kitchen table. She assisted us like a concierge throughout our stay by providing assistance with restaurant bookings and excursions.

Breakfast: This is stocked in the fridge for you to prepare each morning. Breakfast food consists of 2 types of lunch meat (turkey & ham) and 1 cheese, eggs, yogurt, granola, 1 type of cereal (corn flakes), honey, butter, milk, orange juice, coffee, and tea assortment. A fresh loaf of bread will be hanging on your door each morning. The bread is very good.

Television: We don't watch TV on vacation, but for those who do, there are 15 channels and 6 radio channels. Mostly local Greek channels and 1 movie channel in English w/ Greek subtitles. Enough TV's (3) in the villa, though.

Internet/WiFi: Good. Works normally 75% of the time and fast enough (for the most part) for 4 of us to be on at the same time with the kids streaming.

Cleanliness: Ok for the average person, but my expectations are above average. None of the dishes were washed very well.

Here are some of these are things that management should fix:

NO MICROWAVE! This is very bad! Full stove and oven, but no microwave to reheat your food.

Only 1 bathroom. You have to be creative. The shower is a hand wand that hangs low so it does not shower down on you - you have to hold it to shower yourself. No bathtub. Management should move the shower wand holder above your head so the shower can spray down on you while it's in the holder instead of spraying towards your waist when it's I he holder.

No outside grill for BBQ.

Iron cord was too short. The cord was 24 inches long which isn't long enough.

Outside security light kept going on and off all night and it shines directly into the master bedroom. I finally got smart and closed the outside shutters on the room, as it had me up all night.

Not as clean as I'd like. Basic cleaning done. Several of the dishes in the cabinet were dirty and had to be re-washed. Under the master bed was very dusty and dirty.

No shade umbrella by the pool. There was a base but no umbrella.

Master bedroom AC didn't work. They came and looked at it a day later and came back out to fix it 3 days later. The main area AC started making noises. I was glad they fixed the air conditioning relatively quickly as it was a tad too warm to sleep comfortably. It would have been a deal killer if we were there in July or August.

Very large outdoor area and pool. No barbecue grill to cook outside - that would be a big plus. The water was too cold for us to swim while we were there (June 5th-15th).

Overall: Good villa and very good value for the money, but no attention to detail on the smaller things needed to make this a really great place to stay.

Dear Ben,
Thank you for staying at our Onar Villa and for taking the time to review us.
We appreciate your feedback and we already added the wand holder at the shower and we have a portable BBQ upon guests request. The satellite is restored in the living room TV set (a previous guest has tried to tune it and completely ruined the satellite reception) and we are even more thorough with the cleanliness (we always were but we want to improve our services). The automatic night light was flashing because of the wind blowing the leaves in front of it but we couldn't know, thank you for informing us.
The a/c was replaced, not fixed (it broke because the extreme heat of the days although it had been regularly serviced two months earlier).
We will be glad to see you at your next visit and get a great review from you. It is challenging to be able to content people having high standards.
Earino Team

We stayed at suite 4 with the plunge pool and what an amazing experience we had! From the minute we arrived Lee and Penelope were so welcoming and friendly and the relaxed atmosphere of the staff was lovely! The room itself was so much more than we expected and could easily sleep 4-5 people! We arrived to a selection of local sweets and the night before we checked out we came home to 2 complementary bottles of wine! The little finishing touches we're really appreciated! Our private plunge pool with beautiful views was the perfect place to relax after a hard day's sunbathing! We hired out an open top Suzuki Jimny at avance cars in the airport and we had so much fun exploring the island in it and would definitely recommend hiring transport to get around the island, I could go on forever about how much we enjoyed our stay, we stayed 4 days but will definitely be staying for a week on our next visit in the same suite!! Thank you for the amazing hospitality, we would give you 11 stars out of 10 if we could! Louise and JohnPaul! ☘

Good budget option for Akrotiri for those wanting to stay away from the crowds. Penelope was just the most wonderful host and was the highlight of my stay.

The room was large and spacious and very clean. For those who don't travel light/have mobility issues, choose a room that doesn't have a narrow winding staircase to the upstairs bedroom.

You fill in a bit of paper at the start of your stay with your breakfast food choices. For those staying more than a couple of nights, it would be nice to have the option of choosing different items so you're not eating the same thing every day (i tend to only order what i would eat, and not just tick everything on the list for the sake of it).

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Earino.
It was our pleasure hosting you.
The breakfast, though, is flexible. If the guests want, they can change their choices every day. In fact we have added some new choices that you can taste at your next visit!
Waiting to see you at your next trip.

We stayed at Earino for a week and it was one of the most comfortable stay. It is in a quiet location with beautiful views. The staff are very friendly and added a personal touch in their service. Accommodation is very clean and breakfast is excellent.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Earino from 20 May to 24 May this year. The manager of this place, Penelope, reached out to us two weeks before our arrival and made sure we know how to get to this place from the port. So it's very thoughtful of her.

When we arrived, she gave us a lot of tips and told us what are the best places to visit,where to eat and how to secure seats in the best restaurants, etc. She helped us plan our trips and even drove us to the closest bus stops every day.

The cleaning lady is very diligent and made sure our rooms are clean and well-maintained. She served us breakfast based on our selections on the menu. The food is fresh and nicely presented.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. I miss the warmth and friendliness of the staff. They made us feel we were at home.

The only word of advice I have for visitors is that: it is better to rent a car if you decide to stay here for your trip, since this place is a bit far from Fira (city centre) and bus only comes every 20 or 30 minutes and taxi is quite expensive on Santorini.

Room Tip: ask for a room with sea view
