Other Things to Note
We carry for you all your luggages from the high street level to the house back!!!
The cave house is just gorgeous, and just like the pictures! There were 5 of us, and the sofa come bed was just as good as a bed. The view is spectacular from balcony, and also right in the centre of oia. Couldn't have asked for better. Note, the balcony gets sun all day but doesn't look over the sunset! However that's a 2 min walk away!
Yannis was really helpful, helping with our cases up and down the steps, arranging the best tables in restaurants, seeing the sunsets, picking/returning ARCs and advising of other activities.
Overall our time was amazing since the cave house was so fab!
Facilities wise in the house, shower was great. Also the kitchen was perfect for the small amount of breakfasts/snack we required.
Definitely would advise staying here! Would love to go back!
From the moment we arrived, we loved Menia's Cave House. Yaanis looked after us and made us feel very comfortable, he catered to our every need. From reserving tables at top restaurants to driving us around. We felt as if we were 'home away from home'. This quiet little place is tucked away on the edge of the cliffs, with spectacular views across the caldera. Unfortunately the terrace doesn't have a sunset view, but as you are in the heart of Oia it didn't matter at all. The house is conveniently located near restaurants and bars, and around 20minutes to Fira. I will be recommending this place to all my friends and family! A must if you are staying in Oia.
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had a great experience. The porch has an amazing view of the caldera, and the house is right in the middle of Oia. Everything you'd want in terms of restaurants and shops is right around you. The only negatives for us were that we couldn't get the Jacuzzi to work. We never could get enough hot water to fill up the tub. Also, it would have been great to have enough clean bath towels to get through the week. It may not be a bad idea to bring your own. Other than that awesome place!
We had a wonderful time despite the rainy weather. The view from the terrace was gorgeous. Yannis was very helpful and the place was easy to find. The beds were super comfortable but the sheets and quilts were way too small for the beds. The only negative was a complete lack of drawers, closets, wardrobes to put clothes, etc. There were no hooks in the bathrrom for towels so we draped htem everywhere in the bathroom. So we lived out of our suitcases the entire week. I don't like clutter so it was a bit of an eyesore. The bathroom is a dream. The shower was wonderful. The location was perfect.
We stayed 4 nights in Menia's Cave House and we had the most magical time. Yannis organised a taxi for us from the airport and greeted us upon our arrival in Oia, kindly carried our suitcases up and down the stairs, and showed us round the flat. He was also available for any of our questions throughout the stay, and helped organised rentals, restaurants etc. fantastic service!
Like most places in Oia, there are a number of stairs et go up and down to access the flat - tiring at first but you get used it after the first few times!
The flat was perfectly clean and exactly like the photos (extra points for a very comfortable bed). Someone came every day once we were gone to tidy and make the bed. It was like staying in a hotel but with more privacy and freedom.
And nothing can beat waking up to that view and having breakfast on the terrace!
As far as the location is concerned, we loved staying in Oia because it's a little more quiet. And while the terrace doesn't face the sunset, it means the flat has a certain amount of privacy you do not get on the other side of Oia, and you can still get to the sunset view in minutes.
A bottle of wine was waiting for us upon arrival, a lovely touch.
Overall, as you can tell, we loved it!
We had an awesome time in Oiya, staying in Sotiris's amazing cave house. The house was exactly as pictured- the view was stunning, and the location perfect. A short walk up the steps and we were on the main street for shopping and restaurants. Yannis the young man who met us and looked after us was amazing! He arranged a ferry pickup, and and checked in on us regularly. He made reservations for us- even drove us to a travel agent and helped us talk to the agent.
the shower was amazing!
You can't go wrong with Menia's cave house, if you are looking for an exceptional Santorini experience. Thanks Sotiris!
This was my first airbnb experience and could not be more pleased with the accommodations we received while staying here! Menia's Cave house was truly an adventure I would recommend to anybody! The cave was located in the best part of Oia! We were minutes from everything! If you are looking for a true Oia, Santorini experience this is the place to stay; especially with the host, Giannis who knows all the right people to get you the best table for the most talked about sunset in Greece! We would definitely stay here again.
