“Could Not Have Been Better”

We were four couples who rented Grand Canava for a week. The property was immaculate. It was clean, fresh, attractive, well-equipped and, best of all, close to everything one could want in Oia. We used public transport to visit Akrotiri and Fira. The liquor store, grocery store, meat market, fruit vendor and bus stop were 3 minutes away. The music system was complete with many CDs featuring (what else?) Greek music. The pool sparkled the entire visit. The vistas from Grand Canava's patio were spectacular. Our breakfasts were prepared expertly by George and Mosa each morning and the menu varied - how sweet can melon get? Leading restaurants with the freshest of Greek cuisine were close by and easy to find thanks to Tripadvisor. Our host / owner, Roxanne, was most helpful in sorting out ground transportation arrival and departure details. Everything went off without a hitch. Our accommodations were perfect and contributed immensely to one of the best vacations we've had.

We had 11 in our group for an early September 2013 visit. Everything was as advertised. The service was special, wonderful breakfast every morning, they did laundry on request and arranged a great sailing excursion for the group. The views were great and proximity
to the main street of Oia and restaurants and shops was very convenient. Our host, Roxanne, was always eager to help in any way. I would highly recommend the Grand Canava, specially of a large group of friends or family.

Beautiful villa, amazing views, relaxing pool and jet tub, beds were made daily, breakfast made every morning, fresh bath and pool towels were given every day, excellent vacation rental!

Stayed with a group of 11 people total, had enough space because of the separate wings and worked nicely to have rented the whole villa to ourselves. I wish I can go back right now! Roxanne and her 2 helpers were so nice and accommodating; made us feel very welcomed! She offered to do our laundry considering some of us were traveling for more than a week. She also arranged our airport pickup when we arrived.

Great location in Oia, just walk right out onto the main street to go shopping or eat at the many delicious restaurants, or even go to Ammoudi Bay! Highly recommend staying at the Grand Canava in Oia, Santorini!!!

“The Grand Canava Oia is a must do”
Reviewed 28 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

The Grand Canava Villa was beyond lovely. Nestled on top of a beautiful cliff of Oia there is a spectacular panoramic view of the Caldera/Aegean sea. The view not to be outdone by the villa itself or the wonderful treatment we received from the owner Roxanne. The pictures shown are absolutely accurate. We traveled with a large group of 10 so we rented the entire villa and fit very comfortably. We loved spending our days at the pool which allowed us to really relax and enjoy the beauty of Oia. Every morning we began our day with a tasty Grecian breakfast prepared for us by Roxanne and her staff. Roxanne was also helpful with arranging transportation and a wonderful catamaran excursion which I highly recommend as well. The villa is located at the beginning of sunset walk right near many shops and restaurants and of course the beautiful sunsets. I would like to thank Roxanne, her staff, and the beautiful Grand Canava for making my stay a truly memorable amazing experience. I would recommend the Grand Canava Villas to my family and friends and you and I would stay there again when if I return to Santorini.
