Why manolis sigalas chose Thera
i advise this property for people who want to feel like home wherever they travel in the world . If you are looking for a a kind of a typical hotel accommodation service this place is not for you . In this apartment you will wake up by the bright sun shining from the big east window , cook a breakfast with fresh local products you bought from the grocery shop next door and set off for your adventure in Santorini . Come back after sunset take a nice hot shower and make a nice meal or cocktail to stay in the veranda or get prepared to go out for a romantic dinner or party untill morning .

Location was convenient to everything
Manager was available for any questions and knowlegable on area.
I booked this apartment based on the charming photos and comments of the other guests on the website. Unfortunately, the apartment we had was not featured in the photos. I assume it was the upstairs apartment! The bed was not a king size bed as indicated and it was not very comfortable and did not sport the lovely white linens shown in the photos! The apartment was very damp making it impossible for the towels to dry. The staff at the Penguin Laundry were kind enough to replace them after 2 days when I asked.
We did enjoy the location as it was off of the very busy main drag and was quiet. It very easy to walk around Fira and to the bus station for travel to the rest of Santorini.
Great location. Every morning we hear the jingling of the donkeys on their way to the caldera.
Nice apartment and Manolis was very helpful. And Santorini really is a dream island.
Manolis was very easy to communicate with before the visit, and we loved his place. Great location in the middle of Fira, and comfortably fit the 4 of us. Would definitely recommend!
spacious and clean place, honest landlord
Stayed in this property for two nights. The property was spacious, clean and comfortable, and well equiped for proper cooking if you have the energy to do so. We didn't use the cooking facility as the local food was too nice to be bothered to do so. Ladokolla is the best restuarant we went to in case you are looking for one.
We were particularly thankful to the landlord's extra help throughout the room reservation and stay. I initially booked for two nights but needed to change to two nights later. The system didn't give me the option to do so and the landlord did it for me. However, the price charged by the system didn't reflect the change of the booking. The landlord acted in a very honest way and refunded me all the difference through the system and by cash again due to the limit of the booking system.
Nice apartment with short walk to the Caldera.
The apartment was a nice 1 bedroom with a sofabed, which we used for our third person. We were there in the offseason, but the location would be away from the crowds. Manolis was easy to contact, and quick to respond. He left some sweets for our arrival. We enjoyed staying here, and would stay there again.
My apartment is located at the heart of famous Fira Town Santorini.
