Step in a real life Santorini postcard while staying in this unique traditional cave house that offers an unobstructed and captivating caldera view!
House Nicoletta is a restored traditional cave house located in Oia, close to the Venetian castle. It is set on the quite fringe of the buzz of the main street and it overlooks the caldera and the volcano. Due to its unique location, the house offers a panoramic view of the entire village of Oia and at the same time ensures privacy and tranquillity. It is only a 2 minutes walk away from Oia’s main street where all the restaurants and shops are situated.
House Nicoletta is divided into two separate and fully independent cave houses – House Nicoletta 1 and House Nicoletta 2 – that can be rented separately.
House Nicoletta 1, is part of a two-storey cave house that is partly carved out of the soft volcanic rock. The house is separated into two rooms by a wall with a door and three interior windows, which is the traditional Santorinian style. The room in the back is the bedroom, and the one in the front is the living room suitable to accommodate 2 more persons. This apartment consists in total of the back bedroom, front sitting room that includes a kitchen corner, and a bathroom. The bedroom features a double bed and plenty of storage space. The sitting room has a sofa, table and 2 extra beds. The apartment leads out onto a private courtyard, a perfect spot for admiring the spectacular caldera, volcano and deep blue sea. If needed, upon request, there is also the possibility of the use of an extra bathroom.

Communication with Nicoletta was great and very helpful from the start. We had all the information needed and were hosted by her two daugthers on our arrival. We had great tips from them on nice places to visit and good addresses for food/drinks. The place was even more beautiful in reality. This is a perfect location. You can have breakfast on the terrace in front of the sea. The view is stunning! Everything in Oia is walking distance. The place was very clean and enjoyable.
There is all you need! I strongly recommend this place.
My husband and I loved our stay here. Nicoletta was very communicative and helped arrange transportation for us to/from the airport which was affordable and convenient. Her daughter met us upon our arrival and gave us helpful directions and instructions. Nicoletta also provided an entire document of suggestions from restaurants and activities which was very helpful. And the complimentary wine bottle was awesome! The location is incredible and a 2 minute walk to the main sunset viewing the spot. The view from the private deck is amazing and we spent a lot of time enjoying it. The amenities all worked well and the bed comfortable. The only thing to note are the lower door frames. As someone who is tall I bumped my head more than once! So make sure to duck if you are over 5'8"! There is also a daily cleaning service which felt like icing on the cake!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay on Santorini with a highlight being the splendid location of our apartment and the ease of the experience from initial contact with Nicoletta to help with airport transfers and settling in from her daughters.
A charming apartment with a stunning view. Nicoletta's daughters were there to meet us and provide us with helpful information about local sites and restaurants. We had a wonderful time!

THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE.
Nicoletta is a wonderful host. She had her two beautiful daughters pick us up with full assistance with the luggages. Service was superb! Apartment was awesome! The apartment I believe is the best around Santorini and around Oia. The pouch of the apartment has the best view for sunrise and its minutes away to the castle where people gather to take sunset photos. We had a once in a lifetime experience and a really enjoyable one. Thanks Nicoletta and her daughters Christina and Alexandra! And the housekeeper too. All are very nice and welcoming hosts. Love you, love your apartment and love Santorini! ️
Do yourself a favor and book this NOW! House Nicoletta is amazing!!! The view is spectacular, the apartment is immaculate and roomy and you are literally 30 seconds away from the castle where everyone gathers to watch the beautiful sunset. Nicoletta's daughters welcomed us when we arrived in Oia and gave us some great hints and tips to the island. They answered any questions we had and were very helpful. We are so lucky to have stayed at this fabulous rental in the most beautiful part of Santorini!!!

I am from Athens, however I have very close ties with Santorini, as my grandparents were born there and I spent all my summers as a kid in Oia. Nowadays, I live half of the year in Santorini working as a tour guide. Furthermore, I had the great opportunity to bit by bit, renovate the traditional houses, that are under the property of my family. Hence, I started renting them out, in order to offer, an authentic Santorinian experience to guests from all around the world!
In addition, many years ago, my mother visited the island of Patmos, fell in love with it and decided to buy one and later another one beautiful piece of land, including very old farm houses in ruinous condition, that she slowly but steadily renovated. In this way, our family and numerous friends enjoyed many unforgettable Patmos Easters and summers. Nowadays, I am responsible for the good condition of the houses that I rent out and share the beauty and special ambiance of this island with people from all around the world.
