About This Listing
This cave house, hanging on the cliffs of the caldera, is part of a traditional synthesis of houses owned by a family of architects.
The complex used to be the old bakery of Oia and it was recently restored with respect to the unique local architecture. The marble floors, the built in beds and the antique furniture together with modern amenities strike the right balance between sophistication and coziness.
Out on the wide terrace literally on the rim of the caldera, the sensational view of the volcano will leave you breathless. The deep blue of the sea landscape and the picturesque
domed houses carved in the volcanic earth create a calm and magic atmosphere filling you with emotions you have never felt before.
Our houses are located just a few steps from the heart of the village of Oia. All traditional tavernas and high quality restaurants, cafes, shops and the world famous Oia sunset are at a walking distance. The complex is very close to the parking area, taxis and public transportation.
Originally renovated for personal use, the houses combine traditional style with comfort. The built in king size bed (180 x 200 cm) with high quality latex mattress and the fully equipped kitchen with a small oven, ceramic hot plates, small refrigerator, coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster and cutlery will make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
We will meet upon your arrival in Oia and I will be at your disposal for anything you may need during your stay. I will be glad to share with you info about Santorini and everything that is worth doing here.

Amazing stay!! Couldn't have asked for more. Cannot recommend highly enough. If youre coming to Santorini this is where you need to stay!
We had a simply amazing time on our short break in the cave house! It was exactly as described and in the pictures!
Laskarina and John were really helpful and the house was kept clean and veranda tidy by lovely Anna.
We had everything we needed to make our stay super comfortable.
All the finishing touches were thought of including a bottle of wine and water waiting for us in the fridge!
Throughout our stay Laskarina was really helpful when we were organising our sunset cruise and arranging where to get collected etc.
We had the most amazing time and would highly recommend to others!
Thanks for a wonderful time!
This place was everything we expected it to be and more, it was perfect and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Laskarina was very helpful with organising transfers and recommending great places to eat and see, she made us feel incredibly welcome and everything was made very easy. I would go back in a heartbeat.
"Perfect beauty" is the only way to describe this house. From the moment you approach it, down the long terrace overlooking the caldera, you know you are in for a treat. The house is traditional construction, with a living room (carved out of the rock) in front and a bedroom behind. Everything is simply beautiful: all choices have been made to satisfy aesthetics. Except that the bed is also supremely comfortable, there is a great shower, and the tiny galley kitchen is fully stocked with everything a cook could need.
We didn't meet Laskarina, but her husband John was so lovely. He met us at the parking lot when we arrived to escort us to the house, and he phoned the day before we left to check whether we needed help with our luggage early the next morning. When we bumped into him at one of the caldera-side bars and asked him questions about the church next door, it turned out to be his family's private church (once the norm in Oia), and he offered to show it to us.
Santorini is a special destination. Oia is the most special town in Santorini. And it's hard to believe that the Cave House isn't the most special lodging in Oia. We feel fortunate to have spent a week there.
Laskarina and John were amazing hosts who helped us settle in and also provided local phones to enable communications with them when we were in Santorini. As multiple reviews have confirmed, the cave house has a perfect location with an amazing Caldera view, restaurants and cafes a short climb away and all amenities that you could possibly need on a holiday.
The hosts were kind enough to allow us a late check out on our last day after our flight was rescheduled. Thank you Laskarina, John for opening up your amazing home to us and I hope we will back soon because we are already missing Santorini.
Jan and Laskarina were wonderful hosts. They sent someone to help us with our luggage and Jan met us upon arrival. There was even wine and fruits in the house as welcome gifts.
The house has an amazing view of the caldera. The pictures are gorgeous but it is more beautiful in person. The location is also very near the shops and restaurants in Oia and the bus stop.
I would gladly recommend their cave house to anyone who's looking for a place in Santorini and I would choose their house again if given a chance to come back. Thank you so much Laskarina and Jan!
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on the island! It was the best location in Oia. The flat had everything we needed and more. Very relaxing atmosphere. Laskarina gave us a phone to use to call them if anything went wrong and Anna was right above the cave house if any issues came up immediately. It was very comforting. I would recommend staying there!
