Maria and her network on the island greatly helped with arranging taxi and transportation in and out of Oia. There was daily room service for towels and clean up. All people were helpful and friendly. Her communication was perfect.
The location of the cave house was ideal for a getaway in Oia, Santorini.
I would definitely recommend staying here, the price and location are great.
My only criticism is that the pictures do not match the actual place. The furniture, bedding, paint and items in the photos are different. The pictures make it appear much more crisp and high-end then it is inside, but the home itself is the actual home pictured.
Great location in Oia, with amazing views. Traditional Cave house on mountainside, a unique experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. To see the sunsets you walk a minute around the corner, as the sun sets behind this side of Oia. There were three of us and we could sleep comfortably there. This house isn't ideal if you want to cook at all, as although it has a very small & basic kitchen, it's not conducive to cooking. We attempted to cook a hot breakfast one morning (bacon & eggs) but it was almost impossible, no basics are supplied (ie., olive oil, sharp knife, salt etc.,), as are supplied with all other Air BnB properties we have stayed at over the past two months of travelling Europe. However, if you have no intension to cook, it's ideal. You are met by a Porter at the bus/taxi stop who helps you to the house and opens up. Maria, the owner stopped by and was lovely. Our only suggestions are that a soap be provided for the shower, Kitchen basics like olive oil and beach towels be left in the apartment for use at the beach, although maria supplied the towels as soon as we requested. Overall a fantastic stay.
Probably the best location on Santorini, amazing view. Unique experience sleeping in a cave. Everything was really good, including the communication and greeting us late at night (our ferry was 6 hours late, which was accommodated with a smile). We didn't contact Maria during our stay, but felt comfortable that we could have for recommendations or help. Sitting on the front terrace with a bottle of wine and some olives each night away from the tourists on the main street above was a highlight of our trip. Many restaurants charged a significant premium to dine with the same view.
Great location and amazing service. Santorini is a wonderful place and this place was perfect.
We stayed at this cute little apartment with my family was very happy to see the beautiful view of the blue sea and the island volcano.Our daughter he had never seen her so happy and smiling. The porter Vasillis was very helpful and patient even though we had difficulty communicating because we are a family deaf. Good thing he knows something of the Italian language! Mary responds fast my messages on mobile. Wonderful experience for the last two nights of 19 days in Greece!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the cave house. It is in a great location for walking around Oia and the porter who met us and directed us to the house was very friendly. Maria was easy to communicate with also. The house stayed nice and cool during the hot day and was comfortable at night. Just make sure you bring your own soap and shampoo.
Conveniently located with a great view! Very clean and tidy. Would recommend for others to stay here.
