Finding Airbnb’s in Santorini is not a good idea. The best locations are already owned by hotels. Before you book your Airbnb room, try browsing at Booking.com. You can find better rooms for almost the same price and sometimes even with a caldera view. Plus, booking.com doesn’t have penalties for cancellation, unlike Airbnb.

Be extra careful of Airbnb’s. If you can, have someone on the island check it out before booking it. They could be fake. The last thing you need is to be scammed during your vacation.

The best parts of the island are the caldera towns of Oia, Fira, and Imerovigli. These are the best places to stay in when in Santorini.

Villas in Santorini

The best hotels on the island are Cavo TagooCanaves, Katikies, and Grace Santorini

If you want a pool, go for hotels instead of Airbnb. The price for both of them is not very different from each other anyway.

Things to know about Airbnb in Santorini

There are good Airbnb rooms on the island.

Take extra care when booking rooms at Airbnb. It could be a scam. The last thing you need is to be scammed on your vacation. Try and have someone check it out before booking it or ask people who’ve been on the island if they know the place. 

If you’re going for Airbnb, don’t expect a caldera view. That part of the island is owned by establishments. But it doesn’t mean that you’re not going to get a good view. It’ll just most likely be a view of the beach instead of the volcano.

Since the caldera part of the island is mostly owned by hotels, most Airbnb are located near the beach. Expect to find them in the beaches of either Kamari or Perissa. If you’re going for the view, hotels are the only real option.  

The biggest con of Airbnb is that you need to allot a portion of your vacation to meet with the owner of the house. Of course, you need to talk to the owner and let them lay their house rules. This could take about half a day of your precious time on the island. Unlike if you stay on hotels, it’s pretty straightforward. Just get there and check in. 

Fira is the busiest and most touristy town in Santorini. Most of the night scene is there. It also has the most number of shops and restaurants on the island. Imerovigli, on the other hand, has the best views and some of the finest restaurants. Oia is a weird fusion of both of those towns.
