We would recommend it to anyone. It is a beautiful place. Very comfortable. Away from the tourist trap of Fira, but close enough to be able to drive most places within a few minutes.
It was very private, clean and spacious.
Not within walking distance to the beach.
It was quaint and charming. We were surrounded by the authentic Greek culture. It wasn't commercial. Lots of nice places to eat within walking distance.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Most places required driving to, although you could walk. We walked to Fira one day and it took us about 45 minutes. During the busy summer months it would probably be too hot to walk. There was enough accessible in the town where we stayed, so we were content.
Tips or Restaurants:
Renters have an option to request an automatic car if they are not comfortable driving manual. We didn't know that and we would have chosen automatic if we had known.
I would say not to over-pack. It becomes a burden.
Metaxumus is a local restaurant only known to the local people. It is a gem.
All of the restaurants in Megalochori village were great.
We were taken to the property by a representative of the property, so we had no problems. In fact, he was so nice - he even gave my husband a crash-course in driving a manual car.

Our key-holder, Ester, was kind and sweet. She made us feel very comfortable and welcome.
