“This is my favorite ever AirBnB. We stayed two weeks which is longer than the usual guest (I'm told) in Oía, but never once wished for less time there. Not only is the location beautiful with a stunning view of the caldera to wake up to each morning, the house itself is very cozy with lots of comfortable space. The showers were fantastic, the kitchen more than enough for a holiday. Giannis is extraordinarily helpful. He helped set up our transfers, our car and our catamaran trip (which, btw, far exceeded our expectations!) and this was extra good because it would have been difficult for us to find the cave house the first time without it, but only because we were not familiar with the village's layout. He responded quickly and thoroughly every time we had questions and even took took the time to call us to check in to see if there was anything else he could do. His associates, Dana and Dimitri, were also incredibly warm and helpful with plenty of suggestions for out-of-the-neighborhood restaurants and beaches. The whole experience with Giannis and Hector Cave House changed our holiday from merely great to amazingly memorable. Thank you, Giannis!”
Step in a real life Santorini postcard while staying in this unique traditional cave house that offers an unobstructed and captivating caldera view! You can spot the cave house on most of the photos of Oia, due to its distinctive terracotta colour!
“That view. Completely amazing and unbeatable. Coffee and watching the sun come up on the balcony every morning was unbelievable and the +/- 2 minute walk to watch the sunset from the lookout point was amazing as well. Fantastic location within easy walking distance of everything you’ll need. The hosts were so incredibly helpful with maps and tips to maneuver the somewhat labyrinth-like streets of Santorini and how to interpret the bus schedule/routes if I didn’t want to take a taxi to other towns. The daily cleaning service was also so appreciated. The biggest con was trekking in and out with my bag. Not the hosts fault AT ALL (they actually helped me carry things at arrival) but be prepared for the rocky streets that are often very steep with uneven stairs. A bit of a workout if your bag is large! This is to be said for anywhere in Santorini because all of the streets are this way, but worth the warning if you’ve never been :)”
Oia Home II is a spacious and gorgeous house, comfortable to live in and beautiful to look at! Also renovated with respect to its history, Oia Home I is an OPEN SPACE apartment (there are no doors except for the bathrooms and kitchen), has a large living room,one double bedroom and a loft room with a semi - double sofa bed), a fully equipped kitchen and two shower bathrooms. It can accommodate families, couples and friends. Five steps take you to its beautiful balcony overlooking the volcano.
“Look no further - if you are looking to stay in Oia and be in the middle of the action and have a close proximity to everything Oia has to offer, stay here! The bed on the main level was amazing! We did not use the bed upstairs as it was only the 2 of us. I am hoping I can find the bed and purchase it for our home it was that great! The location is wonderful - you get to watch all the action below on the main pathway through Oia from the deck/balcony. It's a prime location to peacefully watch the sunrises and only about a 1 minute walk to the main sunset watching spot. If you walk further towards the windmill, you'll find some more spacious sunset watching locations which I would recommend. This location is also blocked from the wind so even on a super windy day, you don't have it too much and can enjoy sitting on the balcony. They have an amazing maid who comes and cleans the place daily and they update the towels and sheets every other day. You truly feel like you're getting the hotel experience, but with the luxuries of a home including a kitchen if you don't feel like eating every single meal out. The kitchen had all the cooking basics which was great for us as we ate breakfast here each morning and cooked a few lunches which we then ate on the balcony. Kyriakos, the owner of the cave house, stopped by on our 2nd day and helped us plan out the remainder of our trip which was super helpful as we didn't plan anything ahead of time. I truly can't say enough amazing things about this location! We will most certainly return and will stay again at this cave house!”
