We stayed in the Venetian Suite. Breakfast on our balcony overlooking the velvety Mediterranean Sea was truly something from a dream. The staff was wonderful, welcoming, and accommodating. I recommend walking to most things, and renting a four wheeler to drive across the island.

Magic: from when Marcos collected us from the ferry terminal and expertly drove us through the winding roads against the spectacular views, to when Yiannis the donkey carried our luggage to the Falling Stars house, to opening the door to our little piece of Santorini heaven and gazing past the four poster bed and across the rooftops to the caldera....

We had a fabulous few days in this romantic hotel, the perfect setting to get engaged! The champagne breakfasts on your balcony with those views are to die for and the sister restaurant to the hotel is delicious! Head down to the castle at sunset and it's worth the trip down to the sea for a dip. The donkey carrying...

I am probably being a tad unfair giving this hotel 4 stars but hear me out before scrolling on to another review. I booked this hotel as part of a multi hotel trip to both Mykonos and Santorini. We had stayed in 2 very good hotels in Anastasis Apartments in Imervogili and The Vencia hotel in Mykonos. Both with swimming...

We stayed in two of the hotels rooms and both were absolutely gorgeous. Stunning rooms, beautiful linen and amazing infinite views made our stay so wonderful. On top of that were Antonio's massages and Romi's breakfast's. Wow! Both added so much to our already fantastic stay in Oia. Dinner Ambrosia Nectar is also must - the food is delicious and...

Thank you for your review and I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay in the Captain's suite for 4 nights and also in the Falling Stars house for 1 night last September. I've passed your remarks along to both Antonio for the massages and to Romi for the breakfasts. I know that you also stayed elsewhere on the island and...

Hands down, this may have been one of the most spectacular hotel stays I have ever had. The Sea Captain's House was an amazingly intimate, unique and truly special place. My boyfriend and I stayed for a short 3 day visit in mid July of 2012... our last stop during our tour of the Greek Islands. Tony, our proprietor did...

From the start the whole experience has been very good. The booking was easy with Tony being very responsive and providing details and costings. We booked the falling stars house. A traditional house with great views back to Fira and the volcanoes. Although away from the main house (about 60meters) it is like having your own place. The fit out...

We stayed here recently for two nights with high expectations on our 3 1./2 weeks on the Greek Islands (including 5 nights elsewhere in the South). We had also previously stayed on Santorini in Imerovigli. I would say this experience definitely missed the mark and was our least favorite of the trip. It may be more of the room we...

Thank you for the comments and I'm personally apologise that your 2 night visit with us didn't totally meet your expectations. But we had no indication during your stay that you weren't happy, so we couldn't do anything to assist. I should be more proactive in this regard. Luggage - as you arrived by rental car, we did email ahead...

My boyfriend and I stayed here in July based on the TripAdvisor reviews that we had read. I am happy to report that all of the positive reviews were spot on!
