Hector Cave House is a wonderful place to spend some time relaxing. The location is outstanding and the house lives up to and beyond expectations. It is well appointed and brilliantly positioned. Giannis is a first clas host - he communicated with us proactively right from booking to check-out and was genuinely keen to ensure that everything was just right and that we enjoyed out stay. Although Giannis was not in Oia during our stay, his team on the ground looked after us really well - nothing was too much trouble and we took them up on many of their recommendations from the best gyros to the boat trip. Highly recommended.

Giannis' place is absolutely gorgeous. It is a picture-esque house you see in the pictures and has an amazing pool to cool yourself off from the summer heat. The house does not have sunset views, instead offering views of the entire caldera bay, with Fira visible in the background. You can view the sunset steps away, just beware of the hoards of tourists. Giannis, Dana, and Dimitris were all very friendly and communication was excellent. Thanks for making our stay very enjoyable!

Worth every penny. Amazing views, gorgeous house and more than enough space for two guests--would even be very comfortable for 4 people. We loved staying in the old part of Oia right in the middle of the action. From the outdoor private hot tub to the superb amenities and gifts, we couldn't have asked for a better stay.

We have been renting places for vacation and business travel for several years all over the world and without question the Cave House has been the best in all respects. In fact not just the best but at least twice as good as anywhere else we have rented. Our experience was outstanding: the property, the location and above all the warm welcome and help we received from Dana, Dimitris and Giannis. I hesitate to provide specific details because I feel that if you're looking to stay in Oia you should just click to book and enjoy the experience first-hand. I will say that the view is one of the best anywhere, and that the first thing you will hear in the morning as you sit sipping your coffee on the terrace is the soft click of cameras as the first passing tourists of the day take pictures on the path below. However, they are not taking pictures of the view, but of the steps up to house you are staying in because they look so amazing! Our only regret is that we did not plan to spend longer here. This is an exceptional property and we hope to be lucky enough to return one day.

This santorini cave house is absolutely stunning. The house was very clean and decorated nicely. The outdoor patio and cave jacuzzi was an amazing spot to watch the sun go down. You will never want to leave this Airbnb! Giannis was a wonderful host. He was so communicative and gave great recommendations for the island. He and his colleagues went above and beyond and it really shows. A wonderful experience, I wish I could give 10 stars!

Giannis User ProfileGiannis is a superhost.

Hi there,

I am Giannis, 36 years old and I grew up in Athens.
After studying and working abroad (UK and Switzerland) for 5 years,I decided to come back in Greece and work for a family business.

In 1998 my parents visited Santorini Island and they fell in love with Oia village where they bought those picturesque cave houses…
Since then all about my summer vacations is to lay back at that terrace and admire the spectacular view.

Traveling is to share…
There is no better way of doing this, other than sharing the experience with other travelers.

Of course I will not lose any chance to discover unique destinations like Santorini around the world…
