I should say this cave house is in best location for sunset in Oia. My husband really enjoyed everyday staying in it. Panos is very helpful taking care of things and he is a good host.
Location location location. The best view. We watched as everybody lined up to watch the famous Oia sunset on the castle steps but we were in the luxury of our terrace everyday.
The apt is at the north end of Oia above Ammoudi bay. I will warn that you should be able to go up and down significant amount of stairs to get to the apt. The view is well worth the work. Oia is definitely not for those afraid of heights.
The apt was spare and clean but just what I liked. You can hide from the mid day sun in the apt or open the doors for light. The terrace was wonderful! We sat there for hours. You get daily fresh towels/maid service and breakfast delivered. Would definitely return.
Panos was quick to answer questions and helpful in setting up transfers and help with luggage. DEFINITELY get help with luggage and be ready to tip well. The guys deserve it.
Fyi - if the wifi dies, just reset it. The router is in the outside closet with cleaning supplies.
Oia is a nice town with a main walking shop area with restaurants and views. I prefer it to Fira as it's quite and more charming. You can catch the bus to Fira from the bus station every 20 minutes. It's 10 minute walk from the apt...lots of steps.
The view from Sunset Cave House Oia was simply breathtaking. My husband and I were very excited when we first arrived at the house, it had one of the best sunset views in the island. The house was cozy and it gave us a feeling like home. It was also very quiet and private, yet it was only 10 minutes walk from downtown Oia, where the crowd were. Panos welcomed us with a bottle of red wine and a basket of fruits.
Panos was a wonderful and amazing host. Communication with him was easy. He helped us make some arrangements and gave us recommendations before our trip to Santorini. Unfortunately we did not have the chance to meet, but he made sure everything went smoothly when we were in there. He made our trip much much easier. He arranged a transfer from the airport to the house and he made sure a porter was ready to help us with our luggage when we got there. He also helped us book a sailing boat tour. Overall it was a wonderful experience.
I would definitely recommend this amazing place!
Our stay at the Sunset Cave House in Oia was magical. Panos made sure we had everything we needed and his recommendations were amazing. All the personnel that Panos works with share his passion for outstanding customer service and deliver such a pleasant experience! We'd be delighted to come back :)
Priceless views. Frontrow seat for the sunset. Private setting. Hospitable host who was always accommodating and helpful. Panos gave great restaurant and activity recommendations. Do not miss a dip in the Mediterranean (email hidden) Nicholas isle. Also within walking distance is an excellent fish tavern- Katina, down at Ammoudi port. Highlight of our honeymoon.
Our host Panos answered all my emails and queries really efficiently before I'd even left England. I found the whole process so simple because he kept in touch with us all the time. Everything he did for us to make the arrival as smooth as possible worked brilliantly. I found he to be really good and so helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better host.

About the Host, Panos
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??
