It was magical, stunning and forever memorable
Ilivatos in Oia, Santorini was the highlight of our Greece trip. The place and convenient location, the warm hospitality and the stunning views on three levels of decks exceeded everyone's expectations.
Raymont, the local caretaker, was warm, friendly and extremely helpful throughout our stay. He greeted us upon our arrival, made us breakfast every morning and did many other things to make us feel happy and comfortable. He was absolutely wonderful! In appreciation, we want to give a special shout-out to Raymont -- "Thank you, thank you, thank you, you were terrific!"
The location was perfect. It is steps away from the main street in Oia, with many nice, interesting shops, cafe's and restaurants. You will begin to notice that Ilivatos is easily recognizable from the many postcards and online photos of Santorini.
The views from all three decks were spectacular. Unlike other places, we had both a great view of the famous caldera and the picturesque town of Oia. The views of the colorful stacked houses were as wonderful as the caldera and the sea. Also, the rooftop deck provided a 360 degree view of Oia, the caldera, the Aegean Sea, the ports and other neighboring towns.
Every view and picture taken was postcard worthy. Ilivatos is a great place for friends and families to come together to enjoy an experience and a lifetime of memories in the most scenic place on earth. It is romantic, relaxing and fun. I highly recommend a visit to Santorini, and especially Ilivatos. It's magical, stunning and forever memorable. Efharisto!
Ilivatos was simply fabulous. We rented the entire house, which contains 2 apts and a studio for 10 people for a birthday celebration. Each unit was exactly what was portrayed on the website. Each unit has awesome air condition, wonderful beds & pillows, fluffy towels and great wifi. It felt like home.
Irene helped in so many ways; she connected us to a company for a private sunset cruise. The cruise was great and the food they served on the catamaran was out-of-this-world. The cruise was one of the high-lights of my trip. Irene, also helped coordinate a chef to come to Ilivatos to cook a fabulous dinner for 14 people.
The "icing-on-the-cake" was Raymont. He oversaw the property and took care of everything on a daily basis ~ from bringing fresh breakfast every morning, helping with our bags, and bringing a genuine smile everyday to us. He felt like family to me.
I highly recommend Ilivatos! You will make memories to last a life time; you won't be disappointed. :)
Best spot to stay in Oia!
Me and my family just stayed at Ilivatos and it was amazing! I am convinced it has the best view in all of Oia. You really can't beat the view from the rooftop. The blue doors and details are exactly what you imagine when coming to Greece :) me and my whole family didn't want to leave! You definitely need to stay here once in your life!
Lifetime experience- could not have asked for more
The house is amazing and the view from the cliff stunning!! This was a dream vacation and surely a lifetime experience, we will definitely come back to Ilivatos. The house had all amenities and ever more than we could have asked for, the property was super clean and everything was renovated and refreshed. Raymont ( the person that takes care of the house) was always there to assist us, smiley and helpful.
The house is close to everythig ( cafes, restaurants etc). We strongly recommend Ilivatos! thank you so much for this amazing experience!
We stayed 3 nights in september 2014 in the guest house. We reserved via Internet with Irene who was very kind. And we were welcomed by Rajmund on our arrival. He was so kind, professional and very helpful! Really great service! and AMAZING location!
We were amazed by the 360 degree view we had from the top balcony! The room was great, including WIFI and breakfast. Even beach towels! 2 single beds. No fridge in the guesthouse, but we had access to one in one of the apartment that was available during our stay. we really recommend this place.
If you have the budget for it, enjoy an apartment! They are really amazing!
Enjoy your trip!
