Other Things to Note
We carry for you all your luggages from the high street level to the house back!!!
We were met by Yannis a little ahead of our reserved check-in time and he allowed us drop our bags off because the house was still being cleaned. Yannis helped carry some of our luggage down the steps to the house and gave us his number to text for any further questions.
The house itself was amazing. The views are just as beautiful as pictured and it is just below one of the busier intersections in Oia. A large number great restaurants and coffee shops are just a few steps away from the apartment and the sunsets and ocean views are breath taking. The apartment even came with two smaller complimentary bottles of wine (that was better than some of the house wine we had in some very highly reviewed restaurants). The experience of staying in a cave house will be one we will never forget. The Jacuzzi was an added bonus and the cleaning staff came daily with fresh towels.
We couldn't recommend the place more. If we were to visit Santorini again we would have no hesitation in trying to book the same house again.
We had the greatest days at Sotiris cave house. Host Yanis met us up at the bus station and helped us with bags, guided us to the best spots and restaurants in the area. Fantastic service! The view from the terrace was marvelous and the house was lyxurious and well equiped. Warmly recommended and me and my company will definitely come back next year!
Amazing location, not set too far off the main Oia strip but far enough to be really quiet. Little patio and the view is just unbelievable. Bed Rooms are small but you don't need much more. Yiannis was very helpful in carrying out bags and being available to help during our stay. Highly recommend!
We can't say enough about our trip to Santorini and our stay at Sotris' place. It was amazing.
There were 4 of us - two adults and two teens. We took our daughter and her friend to Santorini for our daughter's 16th birthday, so we wanted it to be a special experience. The location was perfect. The cave house is about 60 steps down from the busy main street in Oia. It takes about 3 minutes to walk the steps, but it instantly gets you from the crazy streets and shops above to a quiet, beautiful view down below. There is the occasional tourist that walks by, but they tend to stay up above more. It was very quiet at night, which is good, because we were often pretty tired by the end of the day from walking up and down in the heat. That being said, we all lost about 5 lbs on the trip.., so bonus.
The house is very close to restaurants, bars, tavernas and a grocery store. Also very handy to the bus stop where you can grab buses into Fira and other places. Defintely everything is walkable. The A/C was crucial and it worked great, as did the wifi. All the comforts of home, but with in an incredible location. The pictures are very accurate, and actually don't do the place justice. The view of the Caldera is beyond incredible. Everybody loved it. The girls even "adopted" one of the many stray cats that roam around Oia. She was a thin calico one, that they named Medusa. They fell in love with her. If you happen to see her, please be kind. She can be moody, but she stayed outside on the veranda for most of our trip and became one of the family for that week.
Sotris was a perfect host and helped arrange a car to pick us up and set us up with a great catamaran tour. Giannis manages this place and others and is amazing. He picked us up at the post office the first day and brought us to the house. He made himself available at all times and visited most evenings to make sure that we had all we needed. It was great to know that we had access to Giannis if there was ever an issue (which there wasn't). On the last day, he arranged for our pick-up back to the airport and saw us off. We appreciated all that he did.
This was a special trip for us and the cave house really helped make it. We defintely recommend and will be 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.
