The perfect Oia vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I searched long and hard for the perfect place to say in Oia. I wanted the cave-style, hill-side, caldera view place. When I came across Johan's properties, I knew I had to stay there.

Johan was quick to respond to many of my questions leading up to my stay, from restaurant recs to activities and car rentals. He helped arrange transfers for us from the port and to the airport.

We stayed in Villa White and everything is exactly as pictured. It's clean, spacious, has a great shower, good-sized bathroom, living room area, small kitchen area with mini fridge and some kitchen tools, and a great AC. Johan even provided us with beach towels. We also enjoyed playing his Frank Sinatra CDs on his sound system, we felt so classy.

The villas are the perfect distance down from the busy main street, which is a couple flights up. You won't hear the many people walking atop. We walked around all of Oia often and could easily return back to the villa to rest during the hottest time of the day. The place is not accessible by car but is only a 5 minute walk to the post office which is a main meeting area for pickups/drop-offs. We rented a car for a day and parked it in that area.

There wasn't a day we didn't take advantage of the front porch, you just can't get enough of the Caldera view, morning or night. The mornings are peaceful, enjoy your breakfast looking out at the clear view. At night, you can star-gaze and see the lights from the towns across the caldera.

It was the most memorable stay of our two week trip. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Oia!

Not Worth It at all

  • 2 of 5

Based reviews I expected a fabulous property but that is not what this apartment is -- it is NOT a "villa". The best thing I can say is that it has an amazing view from the small and very hot patio. That is it. There are many steep steps to get to the apartment and the path leads you right into a tourists' hell -- so many people looking at the tourist shops that you literally can hardly walk. And, it is certainly not interesting at all. There are very few beach in Santorini and they are small, not and far. You really want a pool at your location, but as you can see, the apartment does not have one. We were very disappointed in the quality of everything in the unit - all the electronics are very old and the kitchen really only has a hot plate that looks like one my grandmother would have gotten for her wedding. Why bother with this when hotels make you a fabulous breakfast. There was no space, no utensils and no grocery store close by.

The furnishings are shabby and uncomfortable and there is no laundry in the unit. There are many hotels with great views, services include pools, for less than we paid. My daughter and I got food poisoning the first night there and wrote to the owner in the middle of the night that we desperately needed housekeeping. We heard from him at 5pm the next day and he sent a young porter that night who offered to "help" clean. In a hotel we would have had someone there immediately to clean the room and change the bed. We had to live for three days in a stinky room and the owner was only concerned about his cheap furnishings.

Next time we will stay in a hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at this cave house!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly like the photos. The house was intelligently designed, beautifully put together and well thought out. Johan & Vivi were great hosts and were there in case we needed anything which we didn't because it was all perfect to begin with. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and hope to sometime in the future.

I loved my stay at this villa. Not only was the villa beautiful with an amazing view, but the hosts were wonderful - they were responsive and accommodating. Plus the villa was in the most perfect location!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Villa White! The unit is exactly as pictured, clean, private, and the views of the caldera from the balcony are absolutely breathtaking. It is located right in the middle of everything in Oia, however it is far enough from the pedestrian walking path that it is still very private. I was a little nervous to prepay for my stay prior to arrival, however Johan's professionalism and attentiveness to my questions put me at ease. He arranged for pickup at the airport for us (I highly recommend this), and meeting the person to give us the keys and a tour of the villa was a painless process. Although we never met Johan, he checked in with us several times via e-mail to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves and there weren't any issues. I would HIGHLY recommend this villa to anyone vacationing in Santorini! If we are fortunate enough to ever make it back, we will without a doubt be staying at Villa White again!

Hidden gem in Santorini!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing! The picture you see are true! We were on the tail end of our 2 1/2 week trip and this was the best way to wind down from all our travels. With the intense heat of August weather, the villa was naturally cool, being built into the hillside, and this gave us an opportunity to stay cool, and relax. As you step out on the patio, we were greeted by very friendly neighbors, and some of the best views on the island. The location is perfect for eating, shopping and recreation. You're right in the middle of all the best places of Oia. Very close to Amoudi Bay, which is where I really wanted to go for some swimming and cliff jumping. Johan was very easy to work with, and his associate Vasilis was very nice and helpful as well. If we had a concern, they were very easy to get a hold of and answered all our questions. After 2 weeks of travel, this was the perfect way to end our vacation. I would highly recommend Johan and his villa to anyone traveling to Santorini. If I make it back there, his number will be the first one I dial. Thanks for the great memories!

With exception of the classical Greek monuments, the iconic village of Oia on the Northern tip of the Santorinian Caldera rim is probably the most frequently photographed location in Greece. With its picturesque cliff-edge houses, imposing captains’ mansions, cobbled marble streets and ubiquitous blue-domed churches, Oia presents the ultimate Cycladic experience. Oia boasts the most hip and refined restaurants, hotels and clubs on Santorini and arguably the most sublime sunset in the Mediterranean.
