Oia house description

SECLUDED HIDEAWAY IN THE HEART OF OIA!
ENJOY 'BLUE & WHITE CAVE HOUSE' !
As you gaze at the deep blue waters of the Caldera you feel the calm breeze touch your heart and soul in a unique way. You certainly get a bird’s eye view watching the cruise boats as they sneak from the cape and follow the sun all the way from sunrise to sunset.
Unlike most cave houses in Santorini, once you enter the Blue & White House you are surprised by the soaring heights of the curved ceiling. Spacey, roomy, well-lit, the house maintains a constant temperature throughout the year (bioclimatic house), providing a refreshing, cool welcome after a long day under the demanding Greek sun. Inside, the white color prevails almost everywhere. It will make you feel refreshed, calm and pure. The unique architecture of the cave house meets with art objects and airy furniture to please the senses.
There is one master bedroom with a wrought-iron double bed. In the living area there are two ?raditional style built in twin beds for lounging or for extra guests. The master bedroom is separated from the living area by a doorway and 3 small windows. It also provides a dining table and an extra long sofa for relaxing. There is additionally a small adjacent room to the master bedroom with a fold away bed. There is an indoor tiled bathroom with a shower and a second outdoor bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen faces the beautiful Aegean sea.
Outside, the spacious private terrace provides the stage for unencumbered relaxation staring the amazing landscape of the caldera. Your eyes feast on the view producing numberless private mental postcards. You will enjoy your breakfast/dinner at the romantic private veranda with panoramic view of the cities of Imerovigli, Firostefani, Fira and “Athinios” port on the edge of the Caldera, the volcano and the islands of Palia and Nea Kammeni.
Every now and then, tourists with their cameras in hand, slowly, quietly and respectfully glide down the steps passing in front of the porch of the house as if visiting a church. While they seek vantage points for their picture framing, you can distinguish their admiration for the House when they smile and then turn to ponder the view.

                  Year Purchased: 1970

                  Why Oia:
                  The Blue & White House was built sometime in the late 1800s. It was a sailor's lowly house, just like most cave houses. Sometime in the 1970s it was bought by my maternal grandfather. Antonis Dakoronias, born in Santorini in 1918, was a seaman himself. He spent 37 years at the sea, most of them as a captain, commanding commercial vessels around the world, before nestling again in Oia. He became president of Oia's local council and he founded the Maritime Museum of Oia (a must-see place). I became the owner of the Blue & White House after my mother inherited it in the 1990s. I first set foot in Santorini in 1976 and have revisited most years since then. But since the mid-90s, this house has been my exclusive accommodation point in Santorini. Practically every summer I return to this house and pay homage to this most beautiful village in this most sensational island. In 2000 I performed a full restoration of the house to its current excellent state. I am proud of my ancestral links to Oia and a privileged owner of this classic, cliff-hanging cave house. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have been enjoying it for almost 20 years.
