One night in Santorini - lodging suggestions?

We will be getting off a cruise ship one day and hopping on a ferry the next in mid June on a Sunday.
Hoping to find a nice convenient spot that has easy access to the ferry terminal yet is in a nice location.
Thanks!

Which island is after Santorini? What time does the ferry depart? What is your maximum room budget for the night? Do you want easy walking-distance access to youth-oriented nightlife?

We go to Milos. Budget is up to $120. Partying is not high on our agenda, but we like good music. Alas, I am no longer a youth, but my daughter is only 25.
I'm hoping we can catch a ferry mid to late morning. but it might be an early one.
Is it realistic to find a room within walking distance of the port, or should we just plan on taxis?
thanks

Hi I would recommend to stay in Irinis Villa Resort. Perfect view, the best price/quality ratio.

There are 7am and 8am ferry departures to Milos mid-June on a Sunday. It's not realistic to think of walking to the port. It's at the base of the cliff and there aren't any places to stay nearby for $120 (€104), especially if you want to be able to stroll around and enjoy your surroundings. Instead, just find a hotel in Fira that offers free transport to and from the ferry port, or have the hotel book you a taxi. The port bus may even be operating that early from Fira but you'll have to ask at the bus square in Fira to be sure.

Check Anemomilos Suites and Villa Anemomilos for availability. http://www.villa-anemomilos.gr/suites

Thanks - I just studied the map and realize now that it is not so simple. I'll look for a hotel with transport.
Actually - may just stay on the cruise ship back to Piraeus and then catch a ferry back to Milos from there - or a flight. It actually may be easier tho it seems counter intuitive!
