Maria Oikonomou: 'This cave villa was constructed ages ago in the traditional manner of the people of Santorini at this time. They were dug into the volcanic rock so as to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This is bioclimatic architecture. I have artistically decorated it and also updated the villa to protect against humidity. It sleeps 4-5 people comfortably by using the roll out bed at night. The panoramic views from the patio are breathtaking! Enjoy lying on the mattress on the bench in the afternoon and evening and viewing the lights of the other cities on the top edge of the Caldera. In the evening gaze at the sparkling stars and moon in the dark sky. The house, located in the old part of Oia, is like a love nest, small but unique and idyllic, about 60 m2 in size.

Wow!! What a beautiful place!! I am so glad that we decided and we choose to get married in Santorini Island and stay at these villas. This place was gorgeous!!! I'm not sure a review could possibly capture the love we had for this amazing location. We had always dreamed of getting married in a mansion on a piece of property - The Oia Sunset Villas was just that! All our dreams come true. If you want a fairytale wedding, this is the best place to have it! The villas were super clean and full of facilities, the decoration was extremely beautiful and the sunset view was excellent. The all atmosphere was magical and every detail is taken care of, even down to the last detail. Marcos did such and amazing job, for helping us in everything we need. Very quick with email responses and any questions we ever had. There was honestly not one thing we would change about our stay in Oia Sunset Villas!!!! We have no complaints and we recommend OIA SUNSET VILLAS to anyone.

We had an amazing honeymoon at the Greek Paradise! It is a lovely and very welcoming home with breathtaking views and is within very short walking distance to anything you could possibly need in the village of Oia. Maria is such a great host and helped us plan our stay and informed us of all the "must sees." If you are thinking of vacationing on Santorini, Oia is where you must stay, specifically at the Greek Paradise! It truly was a magical trip that opened our eyes to many things and we hope that someday not far away we will be able to return! Thank you so much for your hospitality and warm welcome! You made us feel like family and we really enjoyed getting to know you. I hope someday to meet again! If you ever plan a trip to the United States, be sure to let us know! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!-Chuck and Laura

Greek Paradise -Perfect cave house experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
My stay at Greek Paradise was perfection. The cave home offered everything I was looking for on this trip. The view is so beautiful it seems unreal, like someone could roll it up and take it away but it’s there every morning when the sun greets you, in the afternoon when the water turns to liquid silver and in the evening when you can watch the nightly performance of the setting sun from your private terrace, perhaps in the hot tub.

From the traditional styled furnishings that compliment the house to the artistically tiled bathroom that offers a bit of whimsy, this was the perfect place to spend my vacation. The locations is minutes from the shops and restaurants but still offers peace and quiet.

Maria was a wonderful hostess. She provided suggestions for everything from restaurants to beaches. At her suggestion I went to Eros Beach and swam in the sea as the sun set, or as she explained “as the sun joins you in the sea.” The reflection of the sun off the surrounding sand walls turned the water in to the most beautiful copper color. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it. Also, the Theros Beach Bar there is very unique, with unusual outdoor furniture on the terrace and umbrellas and beach beds on the beach.

The trips to Akritri and Thira ruins are not to be missed. The hike to Thira was worth the walk. The view was brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed the walking I did on the island. I didn’t consider it exercise. It was about getting to a destination. A destination that was breathtaking no matter where I went on the island.

I would recommend Greek Paradise to anyone that is interested in experiencing true Greek hospitality (Thank you, Maria), a view that will remain in your minds eye for years to come and the opportunity to live in a traditional cave home. It was everything I imagined and more.

I will be back.

Best vacation ever!

We were fortunate enough to stay in Maria's rental home in Oia, Santorini. The highest level of comfort, convenience, beauty, and taste typify this cave house. Through Maria’s neighbors, friends, and contacts, a host of individuals are available to support vacationers: shopkeepers, guides, cab drivers, business people, restaurateurs, and winemakers. She has decorated the apartment with her own art.

The house in Oia is chiseled out of the volcanic rock. It is cool inside, a welcome refuge. Santorini is hot. Oia is by far the island’s most well-located village. The nightly pilgrimage to sunset points is mind-boggling: hundreds of people hurrying west in the early evening. Maria’s house overlooks the Aegean straight down; the hill is steep. You can see Imerovigli and Firastefani as well. The stone path leading to the house begins at a higher point, at “street-level.” The many shops, which are OK but cater to day-visitors and are easily avoidable, dwell there, as well as some quite solid places to eat. The car rental recommended by Maria is inexpensive and convenient. Ammoudi Beach may well be a highlight of any stay at Maria’s cave house here. Oia is an extraordinarily beautiful place and the cave house is lovely and cozy. Photos don’t do it justice.

It is no exaggeration to say that my wife and I enjoyed the best vacation of our lives, which was due in no small part to Maria’s personal and creative touches.

Wonderful place to relax

Really loved staying here. The place felt like home, convenient. We liked opening the cute double doors and viewing the sea from just inside the apartment. We were greeted graciously by Maria who also provided some nice port to sip on. The house is located right in town but far enough below the Main Street to be convenient yet private. Maria really treated us like family. She showed us true Greek hospitality. Recommend to rent a car and enjoy the island, parking was easy, jus t a few minutes from the house.
