Very nice cave house in Oia. Maybe I can say one of the best one. Nice view but less traveller. The hot tub is wonderful! Can enjoy it and see the sea view. Fruit is prepared for me. When I check out, Panos send porter to assist to luggage transfer. He is very kind. I love the time spend in his house.
It's clean and warm like the home, the opposite of the house you can see the sunset of Oia, enjoying sunshine or sunset just on the balcony. 5 minutes walk to Oia town center, good place to have a rest whether it's day or night. A little bit far away to go to the Fira, you had better to rent a car here.
Staying at Panos' cave house was beyond our wildest dreams!
My girlfriend and I spent three nights in his cliffside retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of Fira.
Panos' accommodation was PERFECT!! A sunset view everyday from the private balcony, a magnificent fresh breakfast every morning, a comfy bed to sleep in and a jacuzzi too... what more could we have asked for!?
I would recommend this to ANYONE and we hope that one day we will be back in Santorini and staying here again. It was a dream!
As for Panos, he was a brilliant host who replied to any queries we had with diligence and efficiency.
Stupidly, we left his apartment on the final day having forgot our phone charger. Panos was easily contactable and he arranged for the charger to be delivered to where we were staying in Fira... saving us the hassle of travelling back just to collect this. It was fantastic!
Panos' apartment was THE BEST.
Highly recommend!!!! :)
One of the best locations for sunset. On the Bay of Ammoudi, rather than Oia town. Very nice apartment with good sized balconies and spa. Very recommended.
I am still in awe of the view from this beautiful cave house!!
My husband and I are also still in awe of the superhuman strength of the man who took both our suitcases up (one hand each) and down the stairs!
Panos came around on your second day to check that everything was ok. We had trouble working out the TV but we never used it anyway (who can watch TV with a view like that!!!).
Watching the sunset from the jacuzzi is something I will never forget.
We caught the bus to Fira and later agreed that we we glad we got accommodation in Oia because it was much quieter and had better views.
We found a restaurant near the bus station to eat at our last night called Fino - try the lobster risotto!!!
But back to the cave house - AMAZING!!!!!! I hope to return oneday soon!!!

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??
