Walking distance (only 7min walk) from Fira town the capital of the island where the big market, shopping, museums and nightlife. Our village is very peaceful and away from the "panic" of the town. My favorite museum in the world is in Fira town, the Prehistoric Museum. There are plenty of things to do from historical, sightseeing, activities, sports or just relaxing and enjoying the picturesque sea views & I am here to make sure you have everything you need and make you feel like home :)

• Water is precious, there are no natural springs on this island. Tap WATER is desalination water from sea water. It cannot cause you any infection but it contains too much salt. It is advised to drink bottled mineral water.

• Santorini has a delicate sewage system, please do not flush any toilet paper or rubbish, use the special bin provided. Waste bin is just next to the toilet, It may sound odd but last year a guest flushed underwear and expect it to miraculously disappear! Naturally it created a blockage that took two days to fix! Help us keep the sewage system running!

• For HOT water please pull up the ‘BOILER’ levier [RED light ON], wait for max 20 min then turn it OFF & you are ready to take a hot shower!

• SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED INDOORS.

• Towels and sheets are to be used only in your studio. Please do not take them to the beach. It requires double the amount of energy and washing powder to clean them of the salt water and sand.

It is difficult to imagine a more wonderful home so well suited to our time in Thera than Gravitate at Senyo Home. The views are as advertised - but you can't properly capture them with a camera, and so they are significantly better than described. You can walk (and you should as much as possible) a mere 10-minutes to Fira along the caldera, an experience that must never get old, or hop on the hiking trail to Oia only seconds away from the door. The home itself surprised us. Living in the cave-like structure was relaxing, quiet, and hard to leave. This is to say almost nothing of Elvira or Voula, who were both incredibly kind and accommodating to us throughout the entire stay.

This was a great place to stay. The location and views are both amazing. The only issue some may have is getting to it can be tough with a lot of luggage as there are a lot of stairs to climb down but to us it was well worth it. The place itself was nice with the cave house maintaining a pleasant temperature and keeping out noise. Wifi only really worked out on the patio but with how nice the patio is and the views from it this was not an issue for us. Elvira made check in easy and was helpful in ordering food for us one night where we were too tired to go out. It had a daily cleaning service which was nice as the bathroom can quickly get dirty with traditional European showers where water gets all over the place. Overall the location(quick walk to the best restaurants and clubs on the island) and the views made this place a great value to us.

My wife and I, and my brother and his wife had a very nice stay at Sensyo home. The location in Firostefani is fantastic, and the courtyard with a view straight out into the caldera is incredible. It was a little challenging for a group of four, because the only way to reach the one bathroom is through the bedroom, so my wife and I, who slept in the beds in the living area always had to intrude on my brother and his wife. Also cave life is a little rustic, but I think that everyone who is staying in Santorini is signing up for that. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Elvira is an amazing host! From complimentary wine and coffee, to her awesome communication, (which even extends to assisting with placing food delivery while you are there), I can't say enough about her level of hospitality. Well, on second thought perhaps I can. The only thing that could possibly rival the awe inspiring view from her home, is the level of her willingness to do whatever she can to make sure you have an amazing stay! As for the home itself, the units are warm and welcoming, and you feel instantly relaxed the moment you step onto the patio and look over the beauty of the Caldera.

The most incredible stay in Santorini. We loved our room - it was clean, centrally located, and the terrace was just gorgeous. I highly recommend!

I am a graphic designer most of my life among other creative paths.
Sensyo Home is a big part of my life that I want to share.
It is a blessing to share all this natural beauty!

I was working from Sensyo home the first 3 years and comparing my creativity to when I lived in the big city of Athens, where I lived and worked until 2008, I was multiple times productive and efficient!

I am blessed to live in such a beautiful place. Living in a traditional cave home is an experience. I have stayed in all 4 units the past 7 years and I do have many stories to tell about the "cave" effect & the rejuvenating sleep one has in a cave!

Sensyo Home name was inspired by the word senses…

Each unit has a unique identity that reflects onto one particular sense:
"Envision" the eye - window to caldera
"Cocoon" the touch - round like a big hag
"Soundscape" the ear - waking up to chirping birds
"Gravitate" - for the sense we take for granted - you sleep so heavily, you think parts of you are falling off

The "round" shapes and the fact that you are underground automatically set you in another scenery. You feel protection from the intense sun, wind or cold the moment you step into the cave.

The scenery here helps you focus and has intense energy. Most visitors simply fall in love with it and want to come again and again. Let alone the history of the island going back 36 hundrend years!

Sharing is powerful, we are blessed to live on this beautiful island and blessed to have all this love from travellers across the continent.

You and your loved ones are more than welcome to share!
:)
