My husband and I stayed at Ikies on our honeymoon. It was just wonderful! We stayed at the Sailor's house and Boatman's house. We wanted to stay at the Boatman's the whole time, but it was booked. I am glad we tried both houses, both of them were gorgeous. It is true that you do not have your private hot...

My wife and I stayed in the Carpenter's Suite at Ikies in June 2012. I must say, the island, the hotel and the staff all are very deserving of the glowing reviews on this site! First, the management. From the moment we booked, we felt that the property managers and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, willing to provide any...

You will never -- repeat: NEVER -- stay in a more spectacular hotel. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in the Captain's suite and we literally wanted to move in by the end of the week. Everything about Ikies is top-notch: the room was spacious and beautiful, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, the private hot tub...

We stayed in The Captain's House for 3 nights (was supposed to be 4 but our flight landed half way there due to difficulties...Ikies did not charge us for night missed...excellent customer service!!) at the end of April beginning of May. WE LOVED IT. I searched and scoured the internet and even emailed the Santorini expert on TA - Brotherleelove...

We just had 4 nights at Ikies (pronounced Icky-ess, as we soon found out when asking directions for eye-kees drew blank stares) in Santorini. We had the Boatman's House and our two sons were in the Fisherman's House. Having not been in any of the other Santorini properties, we cannot compare it but here are my objective views. It is...

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights here as part of our Greek Isles holiday and it was incredible. The property sits on the side of the cliff with amazing views and an incredible staff. Each morning they serve you breakfast on your patio overlooking the caldera and the views of Oia town. At night you can sip some...

So this place is pricey, but if you are going to splurge this is the way to go. We stayed in the artisans house and the room was simple but beautiful. Unlike many high end luxury resorts, which cost you a fortune and then milk you further for every amenity like wifi or minibar, this place provides you with it...

We researched accommodation on Santorini with Trip Advisor and to be honest, we tried to get into a few other places before trying Ikies. I am so happy we were unsuccessful elsewhere! The views and quality of accommodation are tops, but what really makes this a great choice for holiday makers is the wonderful atmosphere and service of Ikies. We...

If you have ever dreamed about how romantic and scenic a terrace overlooking the Agean would be, you will pinch yourself when you stay at Ikies. We were here for 4 nights and really enjoyed every second of it. Every morning we woke up to freshly squeezed orange juice, Greek yogurt, and more on our terrace. Every night we zoned...

I booked this hotel because it was number 1 in Oia on tripadvisor. Everything about this property is a reason for them to be number 1. The service is one of the best I have ever received on my travels. Big thumbs up to Katerina, Maria and Louella from the reception. They are all extremely intelligent and delightful, and they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ikies Traditional Houses is a special type of hotel. Its small size, exceptional location, traditional design, range of accommodation (honeymoon, maisonettes, and studios) and professional operation result in a rare blend of intimate and personalized service offered against a setting of unique physical beauty. Located at the edge of the picturesque village of Oia in the northern part of Santorini and with commanding views over it, into the caldera and of the surrounding Cycladic Greek islands, our guests at Ikies quickly tune themselves into the complete tranquility of the romantic village. ... more   less
