5/5 Excellent

Beautiful setting
We came over for my brothers wedding and he was staying in another one of Sarah’s villas. From start to finish sarah helped us out with car hire, recommended many places to visit and eat. The view from this property looking out to sea from the pool was amazing. But especially at night overlooking all the villages below was stunning. Sarah was the perfect host always available as she lived near. Highly recommend the stay not only for the views but for the fact sarah was there for us whenever we needed assistance. Many thanks Jane and family. X

5/5 Excellent

Lovely peaceful property!
This house is stunning, with great views and a beautiful rooftop pool. It was extremely clean and easy to get to from the airport. Sarah was extremely responsive and helpful, even recommending a few great restaurants in the area. The only flag I have (which is definitely standard in Santorini, but I didn't realize) is that you can't drive up to the house so there's a short uphill walk from the road.

5/5 Excellent

Quaint little villa
We were 3 couples staying at the villa for one week. The cave house is very nice, but smaller than we expected. The pictures make it look larger than it is, but we were ok with it - as it is so charming. The bedrooms vary in size (small, medium, large). 2 have an adjoining on-suite bathroom. The other bathroom has a very low doorway (in which many heads got banged on the way in). The front courtyard is lovely with lots of flowers and is wonderful to sit there in the evening with candles and wine! We didn't realize that the pool was not connected to the house (but a few steps up the road). The pool was also smaller than we thought from the photos but we also enjoyed the area. Suggestion would be to have a coffee table placed next to the benches, so you could enjoy food/drinks there too. The kitchen is well stocked and everything worked wonderfully. We were very pleasantly surprised that we had a welcome package of fruits, meats, water etc. Such a thoughtful touch. We were able to do some laundry while we were there, which was super helpful. You definitely need a car here, as there is really nothing within walking distance except for the restaurant Metaxi Mas (which was our favourite - GO - the food and service are AMAZING). Mark was really super helpful with going over all the details of the property, giving us tips on places to go and restaurants to eat at. He also helped us arrange cars. It was fantastic to have that kind of help at our fingertips. We all definitely enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to friends or family travelling to Santorini that don't want the hustle/bustle of Oia.

4/5 Good

Holiday with friends
The villa is beautiful and the owner Sarah and manager Mark could not have been more helpful. However the location of the villa is remote and the only viable transport is via car rental.

Weeks Stay July 2019
We choose this cavern house not only because because it was close to the venue our daughter was getting married in but because it was a cavern house. Everything was just about perfect. Both Sarah and Mark (the local property manager) could not have any more helpful. The welcome pack was most welcome as we arrived quite late on the day of arrival and a cold can if Mythos went down very well. There are two great restaurants very close by Metaxi Mas and Anemoloos. We used both twice. The first is a little bit more special and is ideal for an evening meal after a day’s sunbathing whilst the second has a fantastic meze menu which makes for a great long lunch. Although it only takes about 25 minutes to walk to Kamari car hire is almost an essential e.g. for shopping and visiting the rest of the island. This doesn’t take anything away from the property location as it was a quieter location we were seeking. All things considered you will have to go a long way to beat this beautiful cavern house. Thanks Sarah and Mark
