Helen's studio is very comfortable and fantastic value. It is a little farther from Fira which we liked as it was quiet but easily accessible from a close bus stop if required. Good places to eat which were not over priced are within walking distance. Helen was very helpful with organising transport and answered all our silly questions.

It was great to be picked up at the airport and given water when we arrived late and were too tired to walk to the shops. Helen was very gentle and helpful and we had a very pleasant stay.

Helen and George were very gentle, kind and helpful. We were picked up at the airport by a very kind and gentle driver with a super clean ban. The room was clean and quite. Swimming pool and shaded areas with tables and chairs very handy. Highly recommend this convenient location, only 4 minutes scooter to Thira. As soon as we arrived Helen gave us a great run down of the must-see locations of the island, plus she organized for a scooter which was delivered in 5 minutes at our door step, where we also dropped it before leaving.

We throughly enjoyed our stay with Helen. She was lovely and has a beautiful friendly personality. The room was clean and tidy. Short walk to Fira and some lovely bakeries just around the corner. The hotel is pretty quiet which was nice and the sunrise was visible from our windows, lovely location. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Helen :)

Our stay at Helen's was great. We had a complimentary transfer from the port of Santorini to her place which was great. The apartment was nice and spacious and cleaned daily for us. The location is about a 20 minute walk from the main town, Fira, however you can get a bus into town easily. Helen was always very helpful and gave us lots of great information about the island and was always there to call Taxi's and organise things for us whenever we needed. We stayed for 6 nights and would highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic time in Santorini, and Helen's place in Karterados village was the perfect base. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped, with basic cooking facilities and a beautiful view from the balcony. It was private and quiet, and Helen was really hospitable and helpful, as was her daughter. Karterados is a really gorgeous village with lots of character, much more laid back than Fira, which is only 15 minutes walk away. The bus stop is close by, and there are car and bike rental shops in the village. The free transfers to and from the port were a great service. We loved our stay at Helen's and unreservedly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a very special part of Santorini.

The most welcoming stay yet! Many thanks to Helen and her daughter for making it easier for us on the island! What a beautiful place! Accommodation was as pictured, special pick up and drop off to the port (very much appreciated in the heat) and the location was walking distance to laundry and local buses. Fantastic! All the best Helen!

Welcome to my profile on Airbnb! I would be very happy to host you in my pension on Santorini island! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
I am an English lady who is married to a Santorinian man and has been living on Santorini for the last 28 years - so I can give you some good insider tips about places to go, things to see and such like ! The thing I love most about hosting is seeing guests who arrived looking tense and exhausted , leave looking so relaxed and happy and completely refreshed - that gives me great satisfaction as my aim is for my guests to benefit from their holiday in spirit, body and soul.
