The location and accommodation is just as pictured and is gorgeous with great views, hot tub, fast wi-fi (no password) and most important great air-conditioning.
The house is one of the last ones on the cliff so you don't have people walking past. It is technically a shared terrace but it felt private. The hot tub wasn't really hot for us but we here happy with the temperature. Lots of stairs but its located down a cliff so what do you expect.
John was fantastic to deal with and would recommend staying at any of his properties. He organised free transfers and was always quick to respond to our queries.
Tips: If you have difficulty with steps I suggest the arrangement of a porter to assist with carrying heavy luggage.
Loved this stay! Could not have asked for anything better! John was so nice and willing to help whenever I had a question. Perfect stay and host!
John was amazing, he picked us up at the airport even though our flight arrived late and took us to the apartment. The cave house is as pictured, clean, great view, nice porch. All the essentials were available in the kitchen. John gave us a bottle of wine to welcome us. Only negative was that the hot tub was not in working order for the majority of our trip. Overall great experience, excellent location. Easy to walk to all the major sights in Oia. John gave us some great restaurant recommendations and suggested other activities, he is an excellent host.
John was very welcoming right from the start. he picked us up from the airport and on the way to Oia, we stopped at a booking agent as we wanted to do a catamaran trip. He was very patient and even assisted in translating for us. He even offered to take us out diving!
The place was amazing. Right at the end of the path down from the main street in Oia (this was important as we didn't want people walking past, looking in to our place). The steps up to the main street were no hassle at all (with a short rest half way up!).
The hot tub was a perfect temperature (it wasn't 'hot', but in 30 degree heat that's a very good thing!). The view was spectacular.
The cavehouse itself was very spacious, clean and had quick and trouble-free wifi. We loved it.
We contacted John a few times throughout the trip and he was always quick to respond.
We are already thinking of booking this place again next year with friends as this place was next door to another cavehouse of John's.
John is very responsive and helpful. This house is amazing. We love the jazzuci. It has the best view! You have to walk down 100 stairs to get to the house and some of the stairs are rough but it's all worth it! I think my stay was too short.
We had a wonderful trip to Oia, thanks to John and this beautiful cave apartment. Similar feedback to everyone else that there are lots of stairs, but if you're planning to stay in Oia, you should be expecting lots of stairs!
John was always very quick to respond and took us to and from the ferry port. The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures, very clean and it has an amazing view from the patio! The patio is shared with the people next door, but we didn't have any issues sharing the space.
If you are traveling to Oia, we highly recommend you check out these restaurants: Roka (traditional Greek), Karma (traditional Greek), Pitogyro (gyros), Hungry Donkey (crepes)...and the sunsets are amazing, but to avoid the crowds, you should watch it from Amoudi Bay.
Great location , idyllic views , John was quick in addressing any questions .
