We had no idea when we booked this – it is clearly one of the best locations in Santorini – that the deck and spa look directly at one of the most photographed views in Greece which is on the cover of all of our tour books. We were amazed to find the home so very quiet and private yet seconds from phenomenal restaurants and stores. Our Airbnb host, Nick, was the most professional and courteous we have experienced. We will certainly return.

Otium Villa (Bluedome Cavehouse Villa) is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice as the views are breathtaking -- the view is literally the one on all the postcards and you can sit in your private hot tub while you enjoy it. The fact that it is an authentic converted cave does not take away from the upscale feel and was a bonus as it was exciting for our kids to stay in a real cave. Nick provides every amenity you can think of including breakfast items, a welcome bottle of wine and a basket of fresh fruit. He has thought of everything and was readily available during our entire stay for anything else we needed -- from ordering take-out to arranging transportation to restaurant advice to arranging a sunset sailboat tour of the caldera. He is a true local and completely knowledgable about and well connected in Santorini and Oia. There are quite a number of steps to reach this villa, but do not fear...he arranges for people to help carry your luggage.

The most beautiful and breathtaking Airbnb I rented to date!! From setting up for our DIY vow renewal to booking the private chef along with a server, photographer, makeup/hair, dinner, transportation, the host Nick went well beyond our expectations to ensure we had all our needs met and a memorable stay. We loved everything! Unfortunately the last day in Santorini, we encountered the ferry strikes that prevented us from moving on to the next island on our itinerary. But Nick was there providing us updates/alternatives and even booked us another villa so we weren't completely stranded. We were all amazed at his prompt replies, hospitality and professionalism. I highly recommend and I'd definitely stay here again when we return!

Nick's cavehome at the Blue dome church offers amazing views in the heart of Oia, situated right on the Caldera cliff. The quality of the home and quality of service provided by Nick was an excellent value and made navigating Santorini stress and hassle free. Prior to the trip Nick would respond very quickly and was able to assist us with arranging transport to the dome house as well as help bringing our luggage to the home. He was available throughout our stay to assist us with scheduling excursions and offered many tips for activities on the island. The home was the perfect place for two couples to stay as it offered two private master bedrooms and a third full bathroom in case you have kids or a third couple staying with you. It features a large living area on the inside as well as a very large patio for relaxing. The views offered at this location are amazing and the area was very peaceful and quiet after sunset. We would absolutely reccomend any of Nick's properties, especially this one. It is a great value for the location in Oia, unforgettable views sitting on the Caldera cliff, and Nick's excellent hosting.

Nick and Anna's bnb is a luxurious five star experience! First of all, the location is absolutely unbeatable, it's right in the middle of town and best of all, it's right next to the Blue Domes...literally! We felt such a sense of pride coming home everyday to our air bnb in the best location, not to mention we had so many opportunities to take many great photos! Nick and his team were also amazing hosts in reaching out and helping us make arrival preparations, picking us up from the airport and helping us with dinner reservations and city tours. I've already recommended them to so many friends. Staying with them is not just about location, it's about the experience and if you love luxury living with personal service, then this will be the best air bnb experience for you ever! Thank you Nick, Anna, George, Theo and our porters for creating an unforgettable experience, we will definitely come back!

What a fabulous place to stay in all of Santorini and Oia, in particular. Imagine staying in a place that is in every postcard out there. So the next time, when friends ask you about your trip to Santorini, all you do is pick up the very first picture on the Internet and show them where you lived. This is that simple! Very nicely made house, all things is great working condition and overall a fantastic experience living in a "cave house" with all modern amenities. Further shout out to Nick for help with our luggage. Thank you!

If you are considering going to Santorini for holiday, look no further and book the Blue Dome Villas right now! I can absolutely guarantee that all your expectations will be wildly surpassed by the 5-star treatment your host Nick will bestow upon you. You will be stunned breathless when you walk out onto your private terrace and take in the obstructive view over the Aegean, its truly not to be believed how beautiful it is...and if that is not enough, you are right next to the most photographed Blue church domes in all of Greece. Honestly, nothing will prepare you for the majestic Aegean sunsets, sunrises and overall stunning beautiful views you will experience sitting on your large, private terrace sipping your wine, or having a cool drink in the jacuzzi while gazing out over the endless blue sea. The cave house is centrally located in beautiful Oia, walking distance to everything (bring flat shoes/tennis shoes). This place is absolutely lovely, with every amenity one would desire. Three bathrooms with great showers all new and upgraded, comfortable living area, very comfortable beds & pillows and plenty of room for all of us (6 of us) to easily co-exist. Nick truly is better than any luxury hotel concierge. He made our entire trip so incredibly easy. Absolutely no hassle, every aspect was effortless! If you desire, he will arrange your transfer from the airport to the villa & activities while on the island at better deals than if you tried to do it on your own. When we first arrived at the villa, there was chilled wine, stocked refrigerator with greek yogurt, fruits, coffee and so many other thoughtful items. When I mentioned a few days later that we loved the yogurt and ask where we could buy it and also, that I really liked a certain Greek wine, we came home from our walk a few hours later and there was the yogurt and wine in our refrigerator with a note telling us to enjoy. We didn't lift a finger, he even proactively made dinner reservations for us at restaurants we would have never known about. He is so incredibly helpful and knows EVERYONE on the island. His local knowledge allows you to have a true local Greek experience which is what our family desired. We went on so many different excursions that would NEVER have been possible without Nick's helpful insight of the island. Everyone in his crew from George, the driver who picked us up at the airport and drove us all week long, (whom by the way, we invited to come stay with us in California), to Rahani, who carried our luggage up and down the steep steps, checked on us daily to make sure we didn't need anything and one of the kindness souls you will meet in your lifetime, to our wonderful housekeeper who came daily and kept the villa spotless. I can't express to any of you enough how easy this vacation was because...
