We stayed here for 1 week as part of our 2 week stay in Santorini. Memos and Joanna were true gems. So hospitable and made us feel like it was our own place. The location and view was incredible. The pool was great especially when you wanted to relax from the heat. Close to everything, just a minute walk to everything, very central but far away enough from the influx of daily tourists. This villa provides privacy, relaxation and unobstructed views of the caldera.... What more could you ask for. Thank you so much Memo & Joanna for your kind heart that you have to us xx.
Myself, hubby and our friends ( couple)we , rented this place for 3 nights and 4 days. we were shocked to bits, when they informed us that they will pick up and drop off from airport. The Villa is clean, decorated in white and Turquoise blue. They have themes for their bedrooms, one was blue other was green. Wonderful jacuzzi for > 4 people. The hosts were warm, welcoming, very informative and helped us with best restaurants, beaches, transport , etc. in Santorini.
So if you want a nice welcome, no plans, stress free holiday, this is the place for you.
Joanna and Memos were such gracious hosts! Joanna picked us up from the insanely busy ferry port, drove us to the grocery store and a bakery for provisions and drove us to the villa. She welcomed us with a delicious homemade snack and went through the very comprehensive guide she had put together for us about the island. She also left us a bottle of very good Santorini white wine in the fridge that we enjoyed on our first night. Later during our stay, she made us scrumptious cake with homemade preserves. Thank you, Joanna! We loved it! Memos was away for most of our stay but very kindly carried our luggage up to the car park and drove us to the airport. Both Joanna and Memos were lovely to talk to and could not have been more open and helpful. The villa itself - the pictures simply do not do the place justice! Villa Dakaronia is stunning. Two bathrooms, two bedrooms with large comfortable beds and a lovely living room. There is also a huge, gorgeous, deck off of the second floor bedroom. All of it beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The views over the caldera from all of the outdoor spaces are breathtaking. When I booked the villa, they hadn’t built the pool yet . . . wow, were we surprised! It was wonderful to take a dip at the end of a day of sightseeing. Everything was perfect! Thank you for an unforgettable stay!

We have just returned from a weeks holiday on the stunning island of Santorini where we were lucky enough to have picked "Villa Dakoronia" as our base, we were there for our daughters wedding in Imerovigli and had a tremendous time.
The villas location is simply stunning and although we had use of a hire car for running back and forth to the venue, it's position is such that within a few seconds walk you are right in the heart of Fira, and able to enjoy the numerous superb restaurants and bars, yet you have none of the evening/night time noise.
The main walkway that takes you from Fira to Oia runs across the front of the property and is a great place to people watch, whilst enjoying the newly fitted plunge pool/jacuzzi, we heard many envious comments from passers bye as we enjoyed the front patio area.
When we preferred a quieter period, the upstairs terrace was an ideal refuge,.
Well equipped and immaculately clean, this villa truly is a gem, and with Joanna and Memos keen to ensure your stay is memorable I can only give this property the five star treatment it deserves.

We stayed at Villa Dakoronia In April and loved every moment. Joanna and Memos could not have made us feel more comfortable. The Villa has great access to nearby restaurants and bars and views to match any travel brochure. We loved Santorini and have recommended this destination and particularly Villa Dakoronia to all our friends and family.
