“Stunning views & unforgettable stay-- even for seasoned travelers”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Our family of 5, including adult children in their 20s, came to stay with Memos & Joanna toward the end of May. Even though we have been fortunate enough to have traveled the world including all over Europe, Asia, South America, and the Caribbean-- we were completely taken aback by the breathtaking views of the Caldera. We never could have imagined that we would wake up every morning to this kind of beauty. For the reasonable price we were paying we expected to be further removed from the caldera view but the home was right up near the edge of the cliff that dropped off toward the ocean! The rooms were exceptionally clean without so much as a single crumb on the floor. Never have we stayed in a guest home so spotlessly clean. The hosts paid such attention to detail; we felt so at home. They greeted us with freshly pressed juice and had a complimentary bottle of wine set out for us inside the apartment. They provided laundry service for free if we needed it. Memos & Joanna were so helpful in answering any questions we had and describing where to go around the island. For a small additional fee, Memos is often able to arrange tours of Santorini. We found the tour incredibly all-inclusive of all of the must-sees of Santorini. From our hosts we learned so much about the actual Greek culture. We were sad to leave the island and wish we had spent more of our total time in Greece specifically in Santorini at the Villa Dakoronia. We've come away with amazing memories and our hosts have become life-long friends! We plan to stay here whenever we come back.

“The best in santorini”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This villa is the most amazing place to stay. It is in the best location with the most beautiful views over santorini. The hosts are wonderful people ready to help with anything you need. They are very kind, helpful and thoughtful as when we arrived late in evening it was my sons birthday and they had baked a cake for him. Everything they did for us made our holiday even more enjoyable. I would recommend the day trip that they offer around the island and the villa is the best to stay in santorini. Would love to be able to return one day. Thankyou.

“UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Santorini is without doubt the most beautiful island we have ever been to…and with hospitality not found anywhere…BIG THANK YOU to Joanna and Memos for the unforgettable nine days at the Villa Dakoronia. Your warm and gracious hospitality made us feel at home right away. We loved your beautiful Villa and had a blissful, comfortable sleep! So much that we saw the sunrise only one time during our stay :o). Our stay will always be remembered - an experience beyond all expectations. Thank you so much for a beautiful stay in your little piece of paradise!! We can almost still hear your words of wisdom: “keep swimming” and “there’s always a solution…” Peace and blessings to you both…take care and hope to see you again!!

“Santorini's best accomdation with two of the nicest hosts you could have the pleasure of meeting.”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in August 2013

I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Dakaronia with friends in August 2013. The accommodation was excellent. It was immaculate with everything you would need to be self sufficient. The views were to die for and each day bought a different perspective from the Villa. The changing light, sunshine and of course the sunsets!!! Totally breathtaking. To top of this amazing experience, the hosts, Memos and Joanna, were two of the most beautiful people you could ever hope to meet. They were so accommodating to all of our requests....and there were a few...and they never let us down. They were so kind and helped our Santorini experience be one that I will remember for the rest of my life. It is my wish to return to Villa Dakaronia again some day. Thanks Memos and Joanna for making my holiday experience one to cherish forever.

“Amazing Vacation!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We loved our time at Villa Dakoronia, and can't wait to return! From the first moment our group (5 people) arrived and were met at the airport by Memos, we knew we were in good hands. Upon arrival at Villa Dakoronia, we met his lovely wife Joanna. They were both so kind and welcoming to us. They showed us around the home and explained everything to us. Everything about the home was great - the location is amazing, and very convenient to town, scooter rentals, shopping, restaurants, etc. Everything is less than a 5 minute walk from this location. The views are stunning, and we thoroughly enjoyed its beauty from all different times of day - quiet and peaceful mornings, bustling afternoons, and magical evenings. It could not have been any more perfect!

The photos and listing description are accurate, but we think everything was even better in person! The home was very clean and well maintained, and Memos and Joanna even provided a cleaning during the middle of our stay, with new sheets, towels, etc. It was very comfortable for all five of us, and we never felt crowded while inside the home. Most of our stay, we enjoyed spending time outside on the upstairs terrace, or downstairs in the front courtyard. The location is so incredible; you will want to be outside as much as possible!

Memos and Joanna were wonderful hosts. For our first morning in the home, Joanna baked delicious bread for us, along with a trio of marmalades she had made. A few days later, she welcomed us back from a day at the beach with a homemade chocolate/banana cake. They were available for us daily, so if we had any questions, needed recommendations, etc., they were always available. We are so thankful for all of their kindness.

Our vacation in Santorini was amazing, and we are so fortunate that we were able to stay at Villa Dakoronia. It was truly a 5-Star experience. We hope to make this a regular vacation home for our family in the years ahead, and look forward to spending more time with Memos, Joanna, and Villa Dakoronia.
