SUNSET VIEW TRADITIONAL CAVE HOUSES

Oia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House with living, kitchenet, bathroom and personal yard

Three architects, having three old cave residences of their own in Oia, the most beautiful and picturesque village of the island, decide to repair and reuse them, using the most strong, resistant and sustainable materials along with their true desire. The location of the unit, on a natural monticule of the cliff, provides the most wide panoramic view of the Caldera, the volcano and the sunset.

The absolute view, combined to the especial aesthetics with respect to the local architecture, create an ultimate living experience in fully organized apartments. The traditional room, the modern materials, the best sleep conditions, the volcano’s pulse…

The view from a seagull’s eye!

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • smoking allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

About Owner?Property Manager

I am an architect, grown up in Athens.

Soon I quit with my job in the city and escaped to find the calmness in Santorini island.

I found it...!

Owner?Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Owner?Property Manager chose Oia

Because of the excellent combination of the geomorphic relief and location that makes this point one of the few points from where you can see the sun setting on the amazing village of Oia, all the Caldera and the volcano as well as the islands Thirasia and Aspronisi. The view is amazing. Panoramic. The location is calm, 8 minutes far from the noisy center. Perfect to relax and enjoy the myth of Santorini's perfect sunset at it's best!

What makes this apartment unique

You can stay there all your day. You do not need to move to see the sunset. The houses are big enough to let you cook and accommodate easily. So, you can enjoy the best way to have relaxed vacation, avoiding the car driving and trying to park at the crowded centers. Perfect for romantic couples, easy for older couples (less steps you can get), enough for families with up to two kids.

Relaxing and Gorgeous Cave House

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do this rental perfect justice. This is an ideal vacation spot, which is relaxing and beautiful. It is near the commercial part of Oia, but is far enough way to be in a quieter part of Oia so you can enjoy your personal time. My only regret is that I did not spend enough time at the property laying back in all the comfy nooks or enjoying the vino and the sun on the deck. I would love to come back here, but if I dont have that opportunity I would recommend it to any friends heading to Santorini. Also, the people that run the unit are very warm and friendly and help walk you through any unknown details since the unit would be tough to find on your own. Something I learned after getting around Santorini though is that although the bus is easy to use, you have to connect through Fira most of the time. This means you have to plan a little more. I wouldnt have changed where I stayed but I may not have tried so many of the black beaches and just mazimized the soaking up of the sun in Oia.

Best vacation you could ask for

  • 5 of 5
We are greeted at the hotel by our receptionist Katrina. Even though it was late at night, she stayed to make sure everything went smoothly for us.
Our room was perfect. Just as pictured. We loved the balcony area we had at the Cabbiano room. Amazing sunsets every night.
We had a maid come in everyday to clean for us and to make sure we had everything we needed.
We enjoyed having Katrina available to ask questions about the island, where to eat and shop etc.
We felt very taken care of in every way. These apartments come highly recommended.
Only thing that the facility may consider is either a microwave or toaster even.

Gabbiano house

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Gabbiano house for 3 nights and we had a wonderful time. After a very warm welcome by Katerina, the receptionist, we lost ourselves in the spectacular view, which overlooks both the islands across Santorini and the town of Oia. The apartment is small but designed very functionally and we especially enjoyed the comfort of the Cocomat mattress and pillows. We will definitely come back to this property and try to stay a bit longer next time.

Everything about this apartment exceeded our expectations. This was our second visit to Gabbiano & we stayed in two different units to accommodate our dates and the owner and Christine could not have been more helpful with us. Apartment was very clean, well decorated and everything was as it was advertised but actually better. Now, to view -- you will not want to leave your terrace with the expansive views of the caldera, sunset falling behind the white cave houses and the comfort of the well-appointed apartment. Gabbiano's terrace was the highlight of our Oia vacation enjoying wine and snacks and watching the sun go down. I highly recommend their units. We've enjoyed them on two vacations, son & his bride for their honeymoon, too. And, we are looking to return again this summer.

Oia Sunset

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at Gabianno on two separate occasions and are already planning our next stay. The location, the view, the comforts are by far the best we have ever experienced. The owner and on site staff really truly care about their clients. Every need was met and more, from the vinsanto during evening sunsets, the fresh flowers in the room, fresh fruit, selection of wines. The location is perfect and the views are breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you Manolis and Katerina! Looking forward to seeing you again!
