What guests are saying:

Katie A
Room to spread out, easy access to the beach, with all the comforts of home!
“At Villa Santorini you can expect lots of room to spread out, easy access to the beach, and a kitchen with all the comforts of home. The house was ready to go when we arrived and if something came up, the house manager was quick to respond with a solution. Our family of 18 ranged in age from 72 to less than 2 and we all found something special there. We enjoyed watching the sun rise on the beautiful balconies. The kids loved playing in the beach and used the raised area in the center of the round room as a stage for their "shows." We spent a couple days in Chicago using a nearby train depot to get there. We also enjoyed visiting the Dunes and the cute little towns nearby: Portage, Michigan City, Chesterton, and St. Joseph, MI. The property overlooks a public beach with a paid parking lot and a concession stand. We didn't feel it was overwhelmingly crowded and it was kinda fun to people watch from the balcony. Still felt very private up on the hill. This property offered many little touches that you might not anticipate: beach towels, beach toys, and beach chairs, outdoor shower, 2 dishwashers, lots of kitchen gadgets, several mini fridges throughout the house. Overall we had a great experience and hope to visit again!”
