I was a bit skeptical when I made a booking here since it was the first Airbnb experience. However, I received a prompt response from Panos along with all the assistance and information about the trip from him. I was in Oia for 7 days, thus I had enough time to explore the whole town, and I see nowhere better than this house! It is perfect for 2 people where you can relax and enjoy the sunset while in the warmed jacuzzi or one of the terraces drinking wine. Although, it is about 5 minutes of walking up and down the stairs but it was very worth the peaceful location and breathtaking view.
What an amazing location!! Absolutely stunning view of the Caldera and Amoudi bay. The cave house is lovely, perfect for chilling out and relaxing. Floating in the private jacuzzi watching the sunset is my favourite holiday memory. We can't wait to come back!
Panos and his team are great, really helpful and friendly.
Really great location, with an amazing view, especially for the sunset! Panos is really prompt with replies and gave us great recommendations. And all is team was very helpfull. I highly recommend to stay here in Oia.
Incredible location (near castle & mills) & views of the sunset, beautiful house, really nicely decorated. The two-level terrace is absolutely stunning. We enjoyed homemade meals there, morning, lunch and dinners, and enjoyed breathtaking sunsets away from the crowd.
Panos is really helpful and did everything to accomodate us during our stay.
I highly highly recommend to anyone not afraid of the 5 min walk (130 steps) to reach the center of town.
Such a beautiful location and perfect little cave house. Thanks for the people who took our bags as there are a lot of steps!
Highly recommend this beautiful find!
Great location. Great help from Panos for transfer, answering our questions... However, we rented in a busy saison and the value 'price vs quality' was not as high as expected, for exemple: humidity smell, deep cleaness of the appartment, we never got to have a hot jaccuzzi at night (cool temperature, which is good during day time but freezing for night time). Tommy was great and helful in carrying our luggage - which is a must with all the steps of Santorini :).
Easily the best hotel/apartment/hostel we have ever stayed at, by a long shot!
Absolutely impeccable apartment - we actually discussed with my girlfriend how we would love to build a house *exactly* like the one we stayed at, just unbelievably beautiful and well equipped, and clean, and comfortable --- perfect.
The view was breathtaking, but coupled with a private jacuzzi made it otherwordly, absolutely stunning. I can't speak highly enough of the apartment/cave house, I doubt we will EVER stay anywhere as perfect - unless we come back of course!
Panos was also extremely helpful and attentive with everything, couldn't have been friendlier!
An absolute MUST if you come to Santorini. Even if only for one night, it was the best decision we've ever made.
We spent two weeks travelling around a number of Greek islands and the two nights we spent at The Cave House on Santorini were without doubt the highlight of our stay.
We would walk down to the Oia port and look back up at the apartment and we soon realised there could not possibly be a better spot to view the sunset with its position high up on the cliff face. The views in the evening truly are breathtaking and was amazing to have an option of two balconies from which to choose.
The apartment has been meticulously renovated to a standard of luxury whilst using the traditional materials that would have been used in its original construction as a fisherman's house. As well as this there is a nice mix of well chosen contemporary and antique furniture.
Panos himself was a fantastic host, very friendly and helpful.
We would have no hesitation in staying at the Cave House again.
Panos was an excellent host! The cave house was exactly as described and the view was absolutely incredible.
Would recommend this listing to anyone thinking about going to visit Santorini!
This was the perfect place to end our three week trip around Turkey and Greece, and Panos was the perfect host. I could not recommend this option over nearby hotels highly enough. We had so much space and privacy, and could not believe our luck when we found out that The Cave House has the best possible view of Oia's famous sunsets, which we enjoyed every evening with a bottle of wine on one of our two balconies. We'll be back as soon as possible.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
