Excellent place - the location is ideal, the suite is very comfortable, and the hot tub is fantastic! Panos was a great host. Highly recommended.
My friends and I had such a magical experience in Santorini! Our place's location was absolutely perfect. Panos accommodated us really well, which really helped us relax and get the maximum experience of our stay despite us staying for only two days.
The location requires arrangement of transit and porter because of the distance from the airport and the steps you have to reach to get to your place. Panos, arranged this easily for us which cancels this out as a problem. He also recommended places and restaurants to go to making it easy for us to choose and enjoy the culture in the island. We had nutritious and really good breakfast at our balcony which had a breathtaking view. Cleaning ladies also came daily to maintain the cleanliness of our temporary home.
I would definitely come back and stay here the next time I go to Santorini.
The cavehouse is fantastic, view from the balcony is spectacular. Panos was there to welcome us on our arrival and he made us feel at home right from the beginning. Airport transfer was seamless and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Just a word of caution, the numerous flight of steps leading to the cavehouse might prove to be a challenge for those with weak legs. Otherwise, it is indeed worth the hassle and effort. Highly recommended.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Panos did a really great job at making us feel welcome and cared for in Santorini. Offering to organize a ride to and from the airport and a very nice gentleman to carry our bags to "the cave". The apartment could not have had a better view of the sunset each night! By far, best spot on the island to be. I love Oia and this apartment was a beautiful place to stay to enjoy one of the most scenic islands in the world. I would definitely recommend Panos' Paradise Cave!
I'm not sure which part of our stay here demands greater attention or accolade; the Cave House, the view or Panos as a host.
First - the Fisherman's Cave House. This is probably the most unique location at which my wife and I have ever stayed. Built into the side of a very steep hill, this fully refurbished and modern house has ancient roots. You can see other, unfinished houses along the hillside where fisherman eked out a living with their little families but are now long abandoned. Panos' place is clean, beautiful, well taken care of and incredibly comfortable.
Second, the view. My wife and I were looking for a place to just stop for a few days and get some work done. We work remotely, so the wifi (which was going on and off a bit but was reliable enough to conduct all our business) and the view made for the perfect office. It's very hard to explain how captivating it all is in Oia. One of the most beautiful places in the world really. Of course, the sunsets are brilliant. The house is perfectly positioned to see the sunset every night - and not every place in Oia can make that boast.
Finally, Panos himself is the perfect host. He ensured we had a taxi waiting for us (who was great). When we arrived in town he had a great guy take our bags through town and down several hundred steps (did I mention it is on the side of a steep hill). We were traveling for three weeks - so the bags were about 23 Kilos each - not easy. Panos met us at the house - a very easy going fun guy. He had some food, wine and everything we could want waiting for us at the house - very classy. When it was time to go, Panos made sure we were taken care of from the moment we brought our bags out of the Cave till we arrived at the airport. Thank goodness we didn't need to carry the bags back up those stairs (obviously we tipped the guy very well).
I wholeheartedly, and without reservation, recommend this place and Panos to you!
The location was perfect! A dream come true. And we were able to watch the sunset directly from the balcony. The house space was just right for the four of us.
Panos was a great host. He arranged to transport ourbags from the post office to the house. We couldn't have managed it on our own as our bags were BIG and there were plenty of steps to reach the house. He also responded to our requests efficiently.
We would stay in Fishermans' Cave House again if I ever come back to Oia.

Hey, I am Panos from Greece,after studying, and working in Athens and other European cities in earlier years,I realized I would rather spend a bigger part of my time and everyday life in a more natural and simple environment,.. and here i am , in this unique island!I decided to carefully renovate two cave houses in Oia, Santorini, offering my guests exactly what i would expect to be offered in such a location,a beautiful place to stay literally between heaven and sea,respecting traditional lifestyle but yet offering the touch of luxury necessary,isn't it where the essence of holidays in the Mediterranean lies after all??
