If there's one thing I could say about this place, is that its absolutely amazing! The beautiful view over Ios and the ocean, takes your breath away, especially when the sun goes down in the evening while enjoying a glass of wine or taking a late swim in the pool. The house it self is so nice with the interior, the pool and all that comes with it. The hosts Emmanuela and John made our trip a complete success with their kindness and ability to always help us out if we needed anything. If you choose to spend your holliday at "On the rocks", I can guarantee you an amazing stay, with great service and beautiful facilities!

I spent a week in this villa with a group of friends and it was just beautiful.
The island is awesome and the villa is even more beautiful: You get some wonderful sights of the environment around the place, other than a direct access to a small beach. The two owners, Emmanuela and John, are two great people, who made everything they could to make our vacation as pleasant as possible. I strongly recommend this wonderful villa to anyone who wants to have a great time in ios
Not sure whether it's the breathtaking views of the sunny Aegean, the pure quality of these fantastic villas or the wonderful hospitality from hosts; John & Emmanuela that makes 'on the rocks' probably the best holiday villa experience we've ever had! The villas are in a quiet location but within easy walking distance of the main town & the local beach. The villas are finished to a very high standard & comes with all the amenities you could ever need. It was only my wife & I however our villa could accommodate 6 comfortably & a larger party if we took both villas. The hosts couldn't be more helpful & having lived in the UK for many years, there was no language issues. We'll definitely be coming back to the beautiful island of Ios & staying again at 'on the rocks' - Brilliant!
Fantastic maisonettes with a stunning view over the Aegean.
The interior was of great design and cleanliness, the kitchen perfectly equipped and the beds unbelievably comfortable.
The view from the balcony and the pool is magical, especially at sunset.
There is a tiny path which leads you to a secluded beach in minutes.
The traditional Cycladic town with its many bars and restaurants is also within walking distance.
But the best experience of all was the unbeatable hospitality and warmth of our hosts who made sure we had an unforgettable holiday.
A great place to stay, particularly for a large family/group, with the bonus of the very friendly and bilingual owners close by. The 2 luxury villas are linked by a screened seating area, overlooking a large swimming pool, with stunning views towards the Aegean and open goat/sheep farmed hillsides. Extremely well fitted out with every attention to detail. A home, from home with many comforts including a/c in all rooms and plenty of space both inside and outside. The nearest beach and small taverna is a short walk downhill. Sunsets were some of the best we've ever seen. Chora is a wonderful evening stroll of about 15 minutes, with many friendly tavernas and late night shopping. Plenty of good alternative beaches, tavernas and restaurants to explore by car. A gem of a holiday experience!
