HELIOS OR 'SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS', PANORAMIC SUNSET VIEW!

Oia House Rental Photos and Description

Cave House, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath (Sleeps 4), Panorama Sunset View

HELIOS Cave house is located in the heart of old Oia, one of the most beautiful and desirable spots on the island. An additional advantage: HELIOS is ideally located just bellow the Castle, the famous sunset point of Oia, on the main pedestrian walkway leading to Ammoudi bay. Guests enjoy the unobstructed view of Oia's famous sunsets from the lovely private terrace!

That is why 'SISTERHOOD of the traveling pants' was filmed THERE! Most of the film, especially the first part, was filmed in front of HELIOS Cave house. At the last scene you can see the facade of HELIOS as Lena rides a donkey on the steps from Ammoudi to Oia!

The second part was filmed in Ammoudi bay. The steps of HELIOS lead to Ammoudi and to St Nicolas island, where the jump off took place! (write ' Lena & Kostas' and 'Go Jump Off a Cliff-STP' in google search and you will find the episodes!)

Unlike most cave houses in Santorini, once you enter HELIOS Cave House you are surprised by the soaring heights of the curved ceiling. Spacey, roomy, well-lit, the house maintains a constant temperature throughout the year (bioclimatic house), providing a refreshing, cool welcome after a long day under the demanding Greek sun. Inside, the white color prevails almost everywhere. It will make you feel refreshed, calm and pure. The unique architecture of the cave house meets with art objects and airy furniture to please the senses.

Outside, the spacious private terrace provides the stage for unencumbered relaxation staring the amazing landscape of the caldera. Your eyes feast on the view producing numberless private mental postcards. You will enjoy your breakfast/dinner at the romantic private veranda with panoramic view of Oia's sunset, the volcano and the island of Thirasia.

HELIOS, as most cave homes, was built into the volcanic ash more than 1000 years ago in the traditional way. In Santorini people built their houses partially underground or into the cliffs to be protected from the wind, the cold and the summer sun. At the same time, they used doors and windows for ventilation resulting in an open airy feel specific to historic Santorini architecture.

HELIOS Cave House is modernized and comfortable. It is a beautiful cave home that has a spacious living room with two traditional style single beds and a bedroom with a double bed. The crisp white walls are indicative of a traditional island cave home and will provide a true cave home living experience, with modern amenities. Staying with tradition, there are no inside doors between the living and sleeping areas. The roomy bathroom includes a shower. There is also a kitchenette. Furnished in traditional Greek island style and decorated with the owner’s original artwork, this property provides guests with a unique experience. The property is perfect for the solo traveler, a couple’s retreat or a family.

Villa Size:50 m²

• Bedroom 1: 1 traditional style double bed

• Living room: 2 traditional style single beds

A Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Helios house for a week and to say it surpassed my expectations is an understatement. The pictures of this house aren't an exaggeration-it actually is that beautiful. Just looking over the pictures again made my heart hurt that i wasn't there right now. It's in the perfect location-you can leave your door and just walk down to Ammoudi bay, walk a few steps to all the shops, or just go to your private rooftop to have a cappuccino in the morning and some Greek wine during the sunset. Speaking of the sunset, i can honestly say the best view is from that rooftop. Ever since reading the Sisterhood books or seeing the movie, I've dreamed about spending time in Oia. And being in Helios cave house (seen in the actual movie) made that childhood fantasy come true. Every morning I woke up and got to look at the house where Lena spent her summer. Between the beautiful atmosphere and the warm hospitality, I 100% recommend this house!!!!

Idyllic and Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
This Helios Cave House property exceeded our every expectation. It was an authentic, clean, and well-supplied apartment, with clearly the most coveted sunset views of the caldera from your doorway or rooftop. Additionally, the property owner went well above any normal professional support. She showed us superb Greek hospitality, and sought to make every aspect of our stay the absolute best. She made excellent recommendations, and cared for our every need. She even helped me learn some of the nuances of the Greek language and shared great conversation and wine with us. I cannot recommend her highly enough for her integrity and professionalism. Stop searching--I travel the globe--this is your last stop for your dream vacation!
