“We Left our Hearts...”

Our expectation of the Villa and the Owners of the Villa were high. Everything that we read and researched about the island, the property, and the Owners of the Villa was incredibly lovely and might I say, "too good to be true." As we all know, if it's too good to be true...then, it is. Well, let me rest your mind and reassure you that our expectations were met beyond what we could have ever imagined.
All of the good things that are written about this property and the Owners are true...YOU DO NOT NEED TO LOOK ANY FURTHER. Trust me, you aren't being misled by this or the other reviews. We got to spend 8 glorious days of our 2 week trip at the Villa.
Memos and Joanna are the Hostess' with the Mostest. The Villa is spacious, clean, private, well appointed, and perfectly located. We loved the Welcoming Basket of Fruits and nice bottle of wine. The freshly baked breads that Joanna made were incredible. The lovely breakfasts that was prepared by Joanna and served in the outdoor patio under the portico was yummy and a great way to begin the day.
Memos took us to the grocery store to stock up on some provisions for the meals that my husband was planning to prepare. Then, we went to a bakery that had wonderfully baked breads and other baked goodies. My husband and I ate his tasty and beautifully presented Greek meals on the table located at the front terrace where we watched the sunsets. Each moment that the sun slowly dipped into the horizon presented a magical picture that can only be described as exquisite.
At the end of the day after walking around and exploring Fira, Memos and Joanna would ask us about our day and we'd share our experience with them. They offered other things for us to see and explore, but more than that we'd talk about life. We couldn't have ended our day any better.
Also, we highly recommend the 6 hour tour that Memos offers to the South side of the island. We stopped at the Monastery, visited a traditional Greek Village called, Megalochori, stopped at Red Beach, drove to the Lighthouse and White and Black beaches, then ended our tour at the Santo Winery where the view is phenomenal. Memos was a wonderful guide...informative, educational, and fun. He answered all of our questions and made us appreciate the rich history that Santorini has to offer.
While there, I celebrated my birthday. On that day after consuming one of Joanna's yummy breakfasts, she and Memos surprised me with a sweet birthday cake that was not only beautiful, but fragrant. They also presented me with a lovely gift. I was so surprised that I got emotional and shed a few tears of joy. I knew then that we were home. They made all of our dreams come true. We left something there that we hope they will find and keep forever in their care and that would be...our hearts. Efxaristo, Wendy and John Larsson. October 2013

“Amazing”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at Villa Dakoronia for 8 nights and it was truly amazing. It was in a fantastic position and the views were beautiful. The owners hospitality was all and more we could possibly wish for. We were met at the airport and on arrival at the villa were given a huge bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine to welcome us. Throughout the week we were supplied with various home made goodies - such a thoughtful thing to do. We were also supplied with a folder of all the local attractions to visit which was so helpful. It was like a home from home. I would certainly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to visit Santorini.

“Absolute bliss, unbelievable view!”

A group of six of us stayed here for four nights, we were blown away by the view, the villa, and the incredible hospitality of the owners.

The location is perfectly close to everything (downtown, grocery, bike rental, shopping) and well equipped for a lengthy stay. Bedrooms were beautiful, but the rooftop patio stole the show. Caldera view without leaving the villa.

Thank you so much to the wonderful owners, you were a big part of what made our visit to Santorini special.

“HEAVEN”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I would recommend Villa Dakoronia to anyone. This was a fabulous Trip of a Lifetime for me. I met up with my family who had been travelling the world and we stayed with Joanna and Memo. We were greeted at the airport and then when we arrived back at the Villa Joanna had a gift basket of goodies waiting with a drink and food as well. We all felt at home instantly. If we had any concerns or problems they were sorted instantly. We were given plenty of help on where to go and what to do. Offers of more help were always there. We wish we had longer to spend there. I would not hesitate to tell everyone to stay here. Thank you so much for having us, we loved every minute. Hope we didn't leave you with too much to do. The Greek Traditional Feast is a must that Joanna and Memo offer. Never felt so fantastic. xkc
