Dear Yota and Vino Houses family,

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Santorini. We loved our villa, the amazing breakfasts and sunsets, and your great hospitality.

We hope to come back to this wonderful island and to Vino Houses one day!

Take care and love,

Flor, Luis, Viole, Salva and Alfonso

Dear Yota and family,

We had an amazing 3 days at the Nykteri villa. We initially wanted to book a cave house at Oia, but we definitely do not regret staying at your lovely villa.

The hospitality, care, and kindness you gave us during our stay made our stay unforgettable.

It is the first time we can say we had such a great and involved hostess.

It’s also your local knowledge you can’t find on the internet & what made this trip amazing.

Hope to see you soon again!

With Love from the Netherlands,

Jennifer, Eva & Makianne

Dear Yota and everyone at Vino Houses,

We have had a fantastic week in Santorini and we can’t thank you enough for your kindness and hospitality.

The villa exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place to relax after a day exploring your beautiful island.

We are so grateful for your recommendations that helped us make the very most of our time here. We loved the fresh breakfast (especially the figs!!) that was made for us every day, and were blown away by the meal you prepared for us on our first evening.

We hope to see you again in the future.

Dear Yota,

We have really enjoyed our stay at Vino Houses.

On our arrival, your advice on where to go (and where to avoid) helped us plan for the week and in the end, we probably could have done with another week to see the rest or re-visit our favorite places.

Starting the day with breakfast on the patio and ending with a glass of wine, in the warm evening, is something we (the adults) will miss. It was great fun to discover the local fauna of which there is quite a lot of if you have the patience to look. The discovery of kittens in Finikia meant we got a good morning/evening walk, driven by our youngest, Amelie.

Running out of space so in brief, some highlights – comfy, clean accommodation, clear warm sea, amazing cats, warm hospitality, views on hike & Taygetus, views from Oia, Caldera boat trip, …. a lovely stay!!

Dear Yota,

We are so happy that we could be your guests. We felt welcome from the beginning and had a wonderful stay in the Nykteri villa.

Your recommendations really helped us a lot. The boat trip was definitely one of our highlights!

We hope that we can come back one day and wish you and your family all the best.

Thank you,

Philip & Melissa

Dear Yota and family,

The need for a stressless holiday for us was fulfilled.

Everything we needed, a nice house, a fantastic breakfast.

We enjoyed the sea, we loved Lefkes (restaurant).

This unique island surprised us.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Vino Houses was incredible, we wish you all the best.

Dear Yota & team,

We would like to thank you for making our stay at VINO HOUSES this wonderful experience. We enjoyed the time in this quiet area very much and felt so well.

Your foodservice and especially the quality of organic products was a pleasure to taste. You are a great cooker and make your Guest feel like home.

Thanks for everything and we would recommend you to other friends & family.

We look forward to come back one day.

Dear Yota,

The only thing we regret about our stay at the Vino Houses is not being able to be here longer. We have had an amazing three days here. You made our trip to Santorini very special and made our life very easy, even when travelling with 2 little kids can get really stressful. We were impressed by how responsive you were even before we were over here and arranged for our rental car to be waiting for us at the port, with seats for the kids and only with a few hours notice.

We loved your recommendations and how you called every place for us, also many times to tell them we would be coming late. We loved that we stayed in on our last night and were able to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal prepared by you. The house is beautiful and comfortable, but without a doubt, it is you that makes this place so special.

Thank you!

Dear Yota,

We had a very good time in Vino Houses. Very relaxing.

The house is beautiful and the breakfast is good.

Thank you for your kindness to book each day a very nice restaurant for us.

We also enjoyed our first dives in Santorini discovering this volcanic area.

We had a very great time in Vino Houses.

Dear Yota,

We have been in several places all over the World, but never ever have experienced such kindness, service and hospitality. Your recommendations were outstanding!

The apartment is so nice, clean, and with all the comfort you need. Breakfast and cleaning every day are a real luxury.

We really hope you will survive this challenging COVID period. It’s a demanding period, but sure Vino Houses will exist in the years to come. We will definitely recommend it to our Dutch friends.

Yota, many thanks for a great start of our holidays. Go well and once again thanks a lot, keep ongoing. We are sure we will catch up again, hopefully, sooner than later.
