Excellent Villa!! Superb location and view😍

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 and were very comfortable! We can't say enough about this wonderful villa! The location was truly superb! The only issues were how many steps it was to the villa 56😞But we have to say the view was spectacular😊

Fabulously unique!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place, great staff. We would highly recommend it. The jacuzzi pool was so nice to get in and cool off. The kitchen was fine for our needs. It was clean and well organized. They left a delicious bottle of wine in the fridge for us. When we arrived our kids said they wanted to stay for the whole week, not just two days! Oia is absolutely everything you think it would be plus so much more! Magical🌟

Sensational Santorini Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could hardly believe our eyes when we arrived at the property, right in the heart of beautiful Oia, amidst all the whitewashed houses with a sensational view over the ocean, the iconic bell tower right in our front yard! It was amazing!

The gorgeous cave house was decorated beautifully with crisp white sheets and fluffy white towels, changed part-way through our stay. We were also supplied with beach towels and the bins were emptied every day. The house had ample room for our family of 5. The wi-fi was fast and the pool was refreshing and got lots of use after climbing stairs in the heat of the day.

The kitchen was a little bit basic but we still managed to cook a couple of times - a bit like camping! We ate out most nights so it didn't matter too much.

George and Maria were super helpful, organising transfers for us and we can't thank the boys enough for carrying all our heavy bags up all those stairs in the hot sun!

We loved sitting out on the front balcony, watching the sun go down, with drink in hand, pinching ourselves so we'd know that we were actually there.

We sure do hope we can come back one day!

Million dollar view, ten cent property.

  • 3 of 5

Our family of 5 recently stayed in Oia for 6 nights. This property has an excellent location and the view is even better in real life. It was very hot while we were there and the airconditioning was not really adequate in 2 of the sleeping areas. The kitchen is barely a kitchen and needs review. There is no plug in the sink, or bucket, making washing dishes difficult. There is no tea towel.The oven, very small, was dirty. We had to ask for more plates--only 4 there and we are a family of 5. We also had to ask for a chopping board and bread knife. The hot plate took an hour to simmer a pot of water for pasta. There is no toaster. Whilst I appreciate that alot of people eat out on holiday, our 6 nights were towards the end of a holiday and we were sick of eating every meal out, hence we rented a self contained property. Also, because it was so hot, walking out for every meal was not really what we wanted to do. But the kitchen , with barely any bench space at all, is virtually unusable. Also, the back bathroom smelled funny intermittently. The view and the Jacuzzi make this property rentable, but knowing that cooking is not a great option. If the kitchen and appliances were updated then my review would be very different.

George looked after us. He was lovely and showed us around Oia when we arrived, which was extremely helpful.

But he did say that the bins would be emptied every day and this didn't happen. There is no washing machine so George organised a bag of washing to go to the laundry. We were told this would take 24 hours, but it took more than 48 hours and there were items in the returned bag that did not belong to us. After 2 weeks away and with a family of 5, I was unable to tell you if all our clothes were returned.

The lights in the property were not fully functioning. The globes had blown and despite requesting these be addressed some of the rooms have inadequate lighting. Also, quite a number of times the safety switch flicked all the power off. Whilst this can be reset, this definitely presents a problem when you are in the shower.

Overall location is outstanding, but the property is tired and needs some maintenance. Despite this we had a lovely time in Oia and would still recommend staying here but with the expectation of eating out for most meals.

Amazing house and host!

  • 5 of 5

This "cave" house was an amazing experience! It is the iconic Santorini white cave house set on a hillside overlooking the caldera. The view from the house was absolutely gorgeous! From the house, is is about 20 steps up to the main pedestrian street, which is full of shops and restaurants and cafes, most with amazing views. The house is equipped with all the amenities and the wifi is good. There are 4 different sleeping areas, which was nice to allow our kids each their own space. The host was extremely helpful, especially bringing a helper to carry our heavy luggage up & down the steps. If you come here, we would recommend a private sailing tour around the caldera, as well as Pitogryos for a cheap, delicious meal!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

The cave home is exactly what you would imagine. The view is fantastic! George is the caretaker and he is on call if you have any issues. Great place and would highly recommend it. My only complaint would be to have the trash emptied more often and towels replaced. We were there for three days.
