Wow.....what can we say. We had the pleasure of staying at the lovely Main House at On the Rocks Ios for a week in Sept. the Hosts Yannis and Emmanuela were polite, helpful, discrete and very responsive to any questions or requests.
The house was immaculate, the beds superbly comfy with good linens, fluffy white towels and everything you would need supplied. Plenty of space for a large family gathering with privacy for everyone.
The best part for us were the spectacular sea views and cocktails watching the beautiful sunsets. Everyone flocks to Oia to watch the sun go down but this view overlooking Valmas Beach beats it hands down............a must visit if you find yourself looking for the perfect spot to spend a memorable holiday.
We would recommend to families or small groups

This is a long overdue review following our fabulous holiday back in August/September 2015. Our 3 families stayed in the 2 villas with our 7 children ranging from a baby to a 14 year old. The villas,
with their shared pool and children's playrooms, worked really well for us and the standard of accommodation is extremely high. This is a genuinely luxurious holiday destination with utterly
beautiful views but what makes it even more special is the hospitality of the hosts Yianni and Emmanuela and their housekeeper and all the personal touches and advice they give. Daily cleaning is
such a blessing when there are so many children around! The island is lovely with plenty of good beaches and places to eat but you must make the effort and use the outdoor pizza oven at the villas
too. Our family enjoyed walking down to the small but pretty beach beneath the villas for a bit of snorkelling followed by treats at the beach bar! We had a special day celebrating a few of our
birthdays by beach hopping around the island when we hired a luxury cruising boat and an exciting trip back to Santorini on big speedboats. Happy memories! Thank you so much to our hosts for an

What a wonderful vacation! Breathtaking views. We rent the two villas for a family reunion and everybody loved it. Emanuela and Yannis were perfect hosts making us feeling like being guests of family
friends. Alina the housekeeper, spoiled us every morning cooking muffins....everything was fantastic!

Eravamo in 16 tra bambini e adulti...ci siamo trovati benissimo. La casa è bellissima, accogliente, ben organizzata e pulita. La vista e la posizione eccellente. Il personale che pulisce attento e
gentile. Veramente una bella esperienza che ho già consigliato e fatto vedere a parenti e amici . Grazie !

Το On the rocks - Ios είναι ένα πανέμορφο, σύγχρονο, λειτουργικό δίδυμο συγκρότημα συνδεόμενο από μία πισίνα. Τα πάντα είναι σχεδιασμένα, προσεγμένα και φροντισμένα από τον Γιάννη και την Εμμανουέλα
μέχρι και την τελευταία λεπτομέρεια.
Μέσα σ’ αυτή τη λιτή πολυτέλεια φιλοξενήθηκαν με μεγάλη άνεση οι τέσσερις οικογένειές μας. Ένα μεγάλο μέρος του χρόνου μας το περάσαμε εκεί, και μόνο όταν η επιθυμία μας για μπάνιο ή ένα ποτό ήταν
μεγάλη, τότε μας έκανε καρδιά να το αποχωριστούμε. Ωστόσο τα έφηβα παιδιά μας συχνά πετάγονταν πεζή ως τη Χώρα ή κατέβαιναν στην παραλία ακριβώς από κάτω.
Ο μεζές υποδοχής και η καθημερινή καθαριότητα από την Αλίνα συμπλήρωναν την φιλόξενη ατμόσφαιρα.
Ακόμα νομίζω πως, καθισμένος στην πισίνα, μπορώ να αγγίξω ψηλά από «τους βράχους» την απέναντι Σαντορίνη.
Εμμανουέλα και Γιάννη, ευχαριστούμε πολύ.

OooH! So very, very excited. Who is this fella called John though? :) Will Yianni be there to roast the vegetarian lamb? Very much looking forward to seeing you and being there. Big hugs.
