Peaceful, quaint, a glimpse into genuine Santorini living.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to escape! It is hilly and to access the cave house and terrace you navigate uneven cobbles, however this is all part of the charm of this renovated cave house. A great base for exploring this small island (2 hours of hill driving and you would see the island) or enjoy a wonderful terrace with pool from which to gaze across vineyards, blue topped churches and mountains to the sea. The only noise came from birds and the occasional helicopter. A place to rest and relax, little touches like the daily delivery of fresh bread warmed in the morning sun were a lovely bonus. Fantastic local knowledge and service from Panos, the best baklava ever from the bakery next to the supermarket and reliable wifi kept our family very happy for the week. Thank you!

Absolutely phenomenal

  • 5 of 5

A group of five grad school friends and I stayed in this absolutely beautiful home that was true to the photos, if not better. From the very beginning of our booking (months in advance), Sarah proved to be an excellent hostess, asking and answering all the right questions in the best way. She arranged for individual pick ups from the airport and provided excellent suggestions for the island. Panos, the villa manager, took it from there. His service was unparalleled to any I have ever received. From stocking the fridge and bringing fresh bread in the mornings to helping us arrange our daytime activities and making sure we got the best prices and didn't get ripped off or taken advantage of -- Panos proved to be our lifeline. He picked up and delivered our boat tickets, helped us get a very cheap but reliable (and new!) rental car, booked the nicest restaurants based on our criteria and then hooked us up with his friends there who gave us excellent attention and service. He was always easy to get a hold of, whether we were at the house or out and about and needed help. Charming and kind, knowledgeable and resourceful, Panos was a huge part of why we loved our stay. The house itself was clean, air-conditioned, and luxurious. The pool and rooftop were fantastic, but it was equally pleasurable to find refuge from the heat inside the house. We found it particularly helpful to have a washer in the unit for our post-beach trips. With a car, everything was very close and conveniently located. Would highly, highly recommend a stay here, and we are hoping to come back here one day!

Home Away heaven

  • 5 of 5

Caver house Anthea welcomed us with open arms. The house is immaculate and imaginately decorated. Panos the villa manager was delightful and very attentive.We visited many places of interest on the island but were always grateful to return home to the tranquility of the cave house. Our stay was enhanced by several suppers at the Metaxi Mas restaurant just a short stroll away. We would love to return to this little slice of heaven. Thank you Sarah and Panos for making our holiday so special.

Unique Traditional Cave House with Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful traditional cave house offering a very unique experience. It has all the facilities you need and is very well maintained. The rooftop terrace was amazing, with fantastic views across the village and down to the sea, perfect for a dip in the plunge pool and even for my morning yoga session! We would highly recommend the local taverna: Metaxi-mas for delicious Greek food, plus the Mexican restaurant: Senor Zorba with very friendly staff and huge portions, not to mention the fantastic sunset.

Santorini has so many places to visit and enjoy.

A truly amazing holiday, and we always find the Greek people are super friendly!

The only downside was that the path that leads up to the villa can be quite steep in places, so just need to be aware if you have walking difficulties.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband booked for our Honeymoon. The house itself had everything you needed. The kitchen has all the facilities you need even a coffee maker. The outside grounds are beautiful. The house is built in a cave slightly up a mountain which meant the views across Santorini were outstanding. The terrace was a beautiful place to watch the sun rise. The house is situated in the middle of the island which meant exploring was perfect. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house as a perfect home from home
