The house is situated in front of the famous cliffs of the Caldera. Built on a plot surrounded by vineyards and overlooking the sea. It is on the road to Akrotiri in the middle of a quiet atmosphere and a landscape with unique sunsets.

The space

The accommodation is immersed in the typical landscape of the volcanic island of Santorini out from the crowd and from the tourist bustle but not far from the town of Akrotiri or to Megalochori, between sea, vineyards and cliffs. Within 300 m. They are two of the most exclusive resorts of Santorini. Not to mention the spectacular sunsets and the dawn sun kissing your windows every day. The apartment has a balcony and a terrace (with sea view) on which you have the option, if desired, to eat while enjoying the beautiful view of the vineyards and the sea not far away. The decor of the apartment in addition to necessary (fully equipped kitchen, beds and cabinets) is made up of photos, paintings and furniture made by the owner to give a personal and particular. The tranquility and serenity is what will greet you every day of your stay in the "house of Irene."

We had an excellent 2 night stay in House Irene. Our host, Irene, was very friendly and answered any questions we had. She allowed us to check in early and gave us great recommendations. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. The many windows and balcony doors allowed for a wonderful cool breeze to flow through during the day and at night...which made for an amazing night's sleep. It was great to have a full kitchen to make some home-cooked meals when we didn't feel like going out. We enjoyed that the location wasn't touristy one bit. We had amazing views from the home and were close to a bus stop to take us anywhere on the island. We would definitely stay here again!

Very cute space. We loved having the patio available for coffee in the morning and stargazing at night. Claudio was very available and helpful!

The location is situated away from the tourist area, very nice to live in. Easily accessible by bus, although the timing might not be very accurate. The room might get a bit stuffy when there's hardly any wind especially in the second level, but it's bearable. Overall its a quiet environment.

Claudio is the best Airbnb host we've ever had. He treated us like family, shared his favorite Santorini tips with us, and was kind enormously thankful to give us a ride to the grocery store and his favorite bakery. My family and I were grateful to stay away from the over-touristed hustle and bustle of much of Santorini, and Claudio's home and authentic hospitality were the perfect fit. The Airbnb itself was wonderful. Great kitchen setup, lots of windows, and literally across the street from an amazing caldera view. There are quiet, stunning, non-touristed beaches within a 20 minute walk. A car would be ideal, but we used the island's bus system without a problem. One note - we were there during a heat wave, and the upstairs got quite hot. If you're looking for an authentic feel for Santorini life away from the tourist traps, Claudio's place is the perfect fit for you. He treated us like family, and we can't thank him enough.

What we liked: 1. Claudio picked us up and dropped us off to/from the ferry dock. 2. Claudio helped us find a reasonably priced rental car (don't expect miracles here--it was about the same price I found online myself, but it was pretty much as cheap as what I had found myself). Claudio drove us to pick up the rental car and drop it off again in a nearby town. 3. Claudio recommended some good restaurants that we liked and were a good value. 4. Claudio recommended good things to see and do on Santorini. 5. The apartment was spotless and very nice. 6. Unfortunately for us, Claudio's wifi router started failing while we were there. It wasn't a total failure--it was just sometimes the wifi worked, and sometimes it didn't. Once Claudio figured out that the problem was the router, he replaced it immediately and gave us the new password. The main things we didn't like: 1. Road noise. The house is right next to a fairly busy road. It's the road you take to get to Red Beach and the most famous ruins on Santorini. Santorini is unfortunately full of ATVs driving on the roads all over the island, and they are especially noisy.

This is Airbnb and hosting at its best! No commercial establishment could match our experience at Claudio's: an unique home-away-from home stay. No lengthy manuals on how to operate appliances, etc, no tricky arrangements to collect the key or find the place... Claudio took care of all that by collecting us from the ferry and airport (the same on departure), provided basic rations such as milk, bottled water, tea and coffee. The apartment is comfortable and tastefully decorated, resonating with the hosts' personality. On our first night Claudio dropped us off at a local taverna - the best on the island and away from the tourist throng, and picked us up at the end. A bus stop nearby makes up for the location, and taxis are readily available for anyone having a big night at one of the hotspots. However, own transport is an advantage. Excellent value for money meant more Euros for eating out and sightseeing. Please consider House Irene if you're heading to Santorini, this truly is the magic formula for Airbnb: a great host, excellent accommodation, and value for Claudio should be voted as Airbnb's Best Host.

About Claudio

Salve a tutti! Il mio nome è Claudio e sono italiano. Sono ex operaio in pensione. Ho lavorato anni nel campo aeronautico e nella componentistica per aerei.
In seguito alla mia pensione ho deciso di venire a vivere a Santorini e di trascorrere gran parte dell'anno in questa casa.
Le mie passioni sono la musica Jazz, l'archeologia, e la cucina greca e italiana. Come hobbie mi dedico soprattutto al disegno e alla pittura a tempera oltre che alla cucina.
Dopo aver trascorso ormai piu' di 20anni su quest'isola posso dire di essere una guida provetta e di poter dare i migliori consigli sui luoghi da visitare e in cui mangiare. Mi piace indicare luoghi e paesaggi dell'isola molte volte sconosciuti a gran parte del turismo

After spending 20years on this island I can say that I'm a quite excellent guide. I can advice and tell you all the best spots and places with an amazing view, and for eating which are normally unknown to most of tourists.
