The room was comfortable and charming, just like the picture. The view could launch ships as Helen of Troy did long ago. The hospitality, mostly by way of email, was friendly, flexible, responsive, and helpful. We hugely appreciated the house and the help.
A few small tips: 1) Make a walking map of the route from the cave house to the upper road. Eventually it will be almost second nature, but not immediately…especially if your first or second walk is in the dark (or if you’re an idiot, as I apparently am). 2) Shop around a bit for your rental car. Between rental car (we were given manual transmission; get automatic for the hills), a helpful ride from the airport, and gas, we spent 140 euro for ground transportation over 3 days. I now know we could have done it for ~90-100. 3) If it’s winter, the hot tub is less likely to be a useful feature. And 4) Have a wonderful time! We certainly did.
John was a fantastic host and very responsive to my queries prior to our trip to Santorini. John arranged for a driver to and/from the airport as well as a porter to help us with our baggage upon arrival and departure. The home was exactly as pictured, very clean and the views are unbeatable!
The view is spectacular!! The place is just as it looks in the photos, and the location is really amazing. Be warned there are many stairs but this is par for the course in Oia. The man who let met us and lead us to the apartment upon arrival was lovely, and very helpful. The only negative was the hot tub was really more pool temperature. We visited in November, so this might not be an issue in the warmer months.
The location and view are spectacular. It's a great setting to enjoy all that Oia has to offer. Almost too perfect. Being directly below one of the most iconic sights on the island (blue domed church) means that your path to the main street is packed with picture takers at all hours. The cave house interior has everything you need to enjoy your stay and is very quiet. One warning is the number and steepness of the steps. Definitely not for the "out of shape" traveler.
We loved our stay at this perfect little cave house in Santorini! We were met at the post office in Oia upon arrival and walked to the cave house! The only small issues we had were the air conditional didn't get very cool and we didn't really have hot water in the shower, it barely got warm. Other than those to small things, we loved the place and would highly recommend staying here! Very clean room and amazing location!
The location is perfection, offering beautiful views of sea and village, and walkable. Oia is buzzy but as soon as you drop down a few steps towards the apartment it transforms into a quiet retreat. We made friends with the happy, local cats who visited us daily. The apartment is spacious, with an amazing deck, but the kitchen and bath amenities were sparsely kitted out. John helped us arrange our transport to and from the airport which was helpful.
The place and view were absolutely amazing! The apartment itself was clean, decorated nice and was really open and spacious. The view is truly what makes this place. You could sit out there for hours just enjoying the scenery. There are a ton of stairs but it puts you at the end of all the houses so it's extremely quiet. There were a few things that we feel could be improved. One is that the hot tub was empty. If you advertise the apartment having a hot tub then it should be working and ready to go when your guests arrive. Also, the hosts communication wasn't very great. In the beginning we found him to not be very helpful and extremely short. Even with the few small issues we had we would still recommend the apartment.
