Saint John Oia - Private Pool Villas By Local Host is located in Oia

The beauty of Oia is matchless. It is undoubtedly the best place to watch the sunset in Santorini. You can never get tired of watching Palaia and Nea Kameni islets glistening in the clear blue waters as the sun dips into the Aegean Sea. Oia also has the famous Ammoudi port, where you can enjoy freshly cooked seafood.

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and wine houses serving delicious food and beverages are scattered throughout the village. There are also plenty of shops to buy stylish clothes, authentic artifacts, and souvenirs from.

There is nothing better than staying among the whitewashed houses in one of the most famous villages of Santorini and overlooking the majestic water-filled Caldera with your friends and loved ones.

The villa is amazing - it has everything you need on holidays. Also the pool is huge, it is also very private, no one disturbs you not like in other parts of Oia for example. It is very close to the center of Oia, the distance you can walk by foot. The views from the villa are breathtaking, you can really relax here. Apart from all that, the host Tassos is just wonderful, he helped us arranging everything we needed and also booked us great tables in popular restaurants even though it was high season. Amazing!!

The villa itself is awesome, but first let’s talk about the host, who makes it amazing. Tassos is a really great guy, who will help you out with anything you need during your stay on Santorini. His attention to details is clearly visible on many parts of the villa as it has everything you could possibly need and more, with small goodies like Marshall bluetooth speaker, a power bank and more. The villa itself is as shown on photos, with cave-style bathroom, comfy bed and an actual pool (be aware that “private pool” by Oia standards is usually just a whirlpool). During off-season you can watch the amazing sunsets directly from your pool instead of pushing through the crowd in the Oia Castle. Location is perfect as it has a nice sea view and is quiet and private between gorgeous daisies and olive trees, with parking available next to the villa and just a couple of minutes away from Oia centre. The food selection for breakfast is also amazing, as you can choose from 9 different main course menus every day, which you can also adjust if you don’t like an ingredient, while the breakfast is served on your terrace (or inside if bad weather) at the time you select. So overall, an amazing place to stay and we are surely coming back!

I think me and my husband, found a secret gem. As will not be secret for long time, as the villas are new and opened last year. Great location, walking distance from Oía, 10/12 min for us. Little hard at the end as is a little bit uphill. But was ok for us. Actually, if you want to explore the magical island of Santorini you should rent a car, and Tassos helped us with that! So, close to Oía but far from traffic of Oía. You are PRIVATE. Villas are new! Big terrace, big pool and not plunge pool like many hotels in Santorini. Big hammock, nice sunbeds, amazing outside area! The villas are very very clean! Full of amenities, you have iPad, with menu of pizzas, souvlaki, restaurant to order. Tassos will order for you, he is so helpful, made us feel so comfortable! You have also your Marshall speaker, high speed wi fi..snacks, bottles of water. Generally you have everything and a very comfortable bed!! Breakfast served daily outside from Tassos or from his polite and English speaking partner. Book this place and you will not miss!! Tassos, thanks for made our trip so nice!!🙏

Where to even begin with this villa and this experience. We came to Tassos’s villa as part of a 4-island trip around the Cyclades and can say without any hesitation that the days we spent here were at the top of our list of highlights. After reading the previous reviews, we booked our stay with the thought, how can this really match up to what we have read and seen; well, it smashed our expectations. You will see from the pictures that the place obviously looks amazing but much like many wonders in this world, how stunning it is can only be experienced with the human eye. Delightful touches and attention to detail are littered throughout the villa, a great sense of modern but contextual taste in the decor and thought that has gone into small amenities you don’t find everywhere. We made quite some use of the Marshall music speaker which was awesome to have in the background. You awake to breakfast brought to you at a time that fits you and your schedule. It’s personal, it’s delicious, there is choice. Eating on the terrace is just a beautiful and calming start to the day, with the sound of the sea, the pool water and such surrounding you. Actually another note on breakfast is that Tassos has provided a feature I find quite innovative, an iPad with the choices of food to pick from, but also featuring numerous places you can order food from (he orders for you!) and a few other bits and bobs we didn’t make use of. I’m not sure if I just didn’t see this kind of thing before in other accommodations but that for me felt quite innovative. Again, small touches. The pool was actually a little larger than we expected having seen the pictures before. That is possibly dependent on your own perceptions but that was a nice surprise and it almost goes without saying how great the private pool was for such a stay, it had a good temperature too. There is a cool little top balcony on the top floor where you have a view of the sea (/sunset) from a better vantage point too. We watched the sunset from the terrace area on a couple of occasions rather than relying on either extremely expensive restaurants (paying for the view basically) or tourist-cramped spots and my God… it was just a beautiful experience. Lying on the hammock as it sways gently while the sun slowly declines beyond the horizon. These were unforgettable experiences. So it really needs to be noted, that having a private, amazing Santorini sunset view is not to be overlooked as a huge, huge plus for this place and isn’t 100% obvious from pictures I feel. And then… Tassos… honestly the best host we ever had in any place by a long, long distance and I am under the assumption probably ever will unless we return. A genuinely kind man; very empathetic and considerate to both your needs but also your privacy. He helps out even before the stay has begun, sorted out a few things for us regarding our logistics (the suggested taxi driver was very good also) during our stay. I would need a separate review alone just for Tassos in all honesty, so I will just leave it as if we could rate his hosting 100/5, we would. 5 out of 5 genuinely feels a disservice for this place. Writing this review makes me sad we are not still there. It’s just an absolutely amazing place and we couldn’t be happier to have had this experience and to have met Tassos.
