Hooked on: A Room with a View

When you have a place with stunning ocean views like these, why spend much on decor? You have a perfect focal point right there outside, these gorgeous rooms are the perfect example. A simple clean interior with a stunning view, I certainly would not say no to this place, would you?


The dream of owning a place like this is a distant dream for me, so for the time being I will settle for a holiday similar to this in a gorgeous hotel, how about the Canaves Oia Hotel in Santorini? I'll leave you to enjoy the views...




Breakfast on terrace? Yes please! Happy Friday! Hope you'll have a relaxing weekend :)

I am now sitting at work, researching precisely when the best time of year to travel to Greece is and how much I'd have to budget to afford such a tempting and gorgeous vacation. I'm infatuated with the pictures you put on your blog, you've got such an incredible eye for beauty.

Happy Friday!

completely-coastal.com said...

I agree..., with an ocean view like that as the focal point, you don't need much more..., just a bed, comfi loungers and a table. How wonderful.

Mademoisselle Chic said...

Aww, I would just love to have a bed right next to the view! Imagine waking up to that every morning? :)

anonymously chic said...

Things That Inspire said...

There is truly no better place than the ocean! Whenever I visit the ocean, I often think to myself 'there is no place I would rather be in this world'.

When I was a teenager, I was an exchange student in Greece for a summer. It was wonderful - the host family had a modest vacation home in a seaside town on the Mediterranean, and we would eat fresh apricots and figs from the garden. This post brought back some good memories!

Trixy said...

TAKE ME THERE! It looks so amazing! (:

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Ahhhh. Wouldn't it be fab to have one of those views?! It's fun to dream. :-)

le petit me said...

Beautiful views!

Quenchant of the Curious said...

Greece always looks so clean and blue! it must be the best of mornings to wake up with a view like that, the morning sun slanting and shimmering across the water and glinting in your sleepy eyes!

Jenny said...

Beautiful! We don't have a view of the ocean, but our home has atrium windows that look out to the woods. It is so nice not to look out at houses.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I spent my 1st anniversary on Santorini. (We were living on Crete at the time.) It was magical.
