John's place was beautiful. Great for honeymoon with an exceptional view of oia. He was very pleasant and helpful at all times. We had everything we need in the apapartment. We would really go back and recommend the apartment to our friends!
Really no need to leave this place! You are the last cave house on the path and have a 180 degree view of the surrounding caldera and beautiful views of all the cave houses above. The cave house is in pristine condition and has everything needed for a good long stay. The only reason to leave is to go up the steps to one of the many restaurants within short walking distance of the house or to grab some groceries from the market and cook yourself a meal in the fully stocked kitchenette. The cave house is large and comfortable but the real selling point is the huge deck that is all yours (this is where we spent our time thinking how lucky we were to be sitting in this spot and not shuffling through the crowded alleys of Oia trying to find what we had all to ourselves)
We never met John, but did corespond with him on many occasions and he was very reponsive to any questions or requests we had. He made sure that someone was there to greet us upon arrival and give us the lay of the land.
If you are looking for a place to be awed by a spectacular view that is all yours then this is your place.
John was a fantastic host and his apartment was amazing - traditional cave house with all the character you would expect of an island with Santorini's history. The apartment was spacious, airy, light, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The mostly private terrace was an added bonus for taking in the stunning views. The location was tranquil but being just 100 manageable steps from the main street activity meant we had the best of both worlds. John was friendly, hospitable and relaxed, all the while giving a lot of his time to us and we noticed, other guests, whenever needed. We highly recommend him and the Oia apartment.
The Goddess Lethe is the place of my dreams. While staying in Oia, this place, this host and the the restaurants in the area will forever be in my memory. Everything is as described by John on the profile. The room was clean, well equipped with a small kitchen, big bathroom, great AC and the most fantastic view of the volcano and Mediterranean sea money can buy. I will always remember how good John made us feel and how helpful he was. I know I left a friend there.
My stay in Oia wouldn't have been the same hadn't I stayed in Godess Lethe. As Giannis told us, Godess Lethe makes you forget all your travels, but far away from the topic, by bringing an intellectual and touching experience which has nothing to do with the vulgar "beach plan".
This host is unique. He is nice and really cool, he would talk with the guests about interesting topics: greek music, politic and culture. He's friendly and very arranging.
Sincerely, I hope I will come back soon.
Loved our stay here. The place is in a great location and has everything you could need. John, the host, picked us up from the bus stop and took us to the apartment. He was helpful in making suggestions as to what to do and recommended places to eat.
Would love to come back and visit again!
Great place, view, location.
Got engaged here!
Totally worth it!
Great location with amazing Caldeira view!
Nothing was missing and the room was spacefull.
You simply MUST stay here! it was perfect in every way.
Very accommodating - big smiles, nothing was a problem. John and Sofia are an extremely warm, welcoming, lovely couple.
Vast! Extremely clean, tidy. Had every facility you could possibly need - Good water pressure in shower, fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and TV. All new!
View will take your breath away.
Accommodation is at the very end of one of Oia's famous winding paths. This means that picture-taking tourists don't often get as far as this balcony which makes the experience all the more special, private and quiet.
The view and landscape are truly overwhelming from its location.
Only 1 negative:
The number of steps to get to the accommodation itself.
Over 100 steps and all uneven so perhaps not suited to someone who struggles with flights of stairs - could be exhausting in the heat.. especially with heavy luggage!
All in all - we couldn't have had a better experience here and would recommend Godess Lethe to anyone visiting Santorini.
Very kind host and a perfect apartment! I can recommend it to anyone looking for a cosy and cute place to stay in Oia with an amazing view. Thank you for everything, John!
