The Absolute Perfect Vacation
There isn’t a single thing I’d change about my stay at the Paradise Santorini Cave House. Every bit of the process was a breeze. Maria was so friendly and helpful and her staff was kind beyond belief. They went out of their way, above and beyond to ensure I had the best stay. One evening they even took me to one of their other properties on the Caldera side to watch the sunset from the huge terrace since that property was vacant that night AND provided me snacks and wine to enjoy while I sat there! If that isn’t hospitality!! Seriously, above and beyond! The house is adorable and sparkling clean with everything you could need, toiletries, kitchen supplies, and the breakfast and snacks were a lovely to have available. Maria helped coordinate the airport transfers and everything. If you want a seamless, easy, incredible stay in Oia, call Maria ASAP! The location is awesome, very central to the town with quick access to the main road, but removed just enough that it was quiet and serene. I can’t wait to stay there again and have already recommended the Paradise property to a ton of friends. Hope you enjoy!

Dear Halina, due to high season I did not have the time to reply to your comment sooner, but future guests can always judge the quality of our service from the reviews of our previous guests. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your life in Santorini. I wonder why. You mention that the hot tub was the problem. However the hot tub is automatic, it functions all the time and it is auto - cleaned! The day you arrived, Sunil, the person in charge, filled it with fresh water, I was there, supervising the preparation of the house for you! There is no chance for it to get dirty in 2 days the time you booked the house for. That is what happened: because there is a small flower veranda of ours above the yard where the hot tub lies, some leaves may have fallen in - it was windy during the night. The morning, after breakfast, Sunil took them away and that was it! In Oia, Santorini, we live in plain nature and by default this is not a static situation, it is a dynamic one! I wish you well and to be happy!
We loved staying in this beautiful cave villa with the perfect location in Oia. Just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy the beauty of Oia with some privacy. The views were incredible and Maria and her team took great care of us. Loved our stay!
thank you so very much for your lovely review! Love that you enjoyed your vacation with us and hope we see you again soon!
Sea View: The villa is located in the old part of Oia, 2 minutes from the famous 'sunset point'.
Maria Oikonomou:'This cave villa was constructed ages ago in the traditional manner of the people of Santorini at this time. They were dug into the volcanic rock so as to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. I have artistically decorated it and also updated the villa to protect against humidity. It sleeps 5 people comfortably. The master bedroom is separated from the rest of the house by a door and two windows.The panoramic views from the patio are breathtaking! Enjoy lying on the mattress on the bench in the afternoon and evening and viewing the lights of the other cities on the top edge of the Caldera. In the evening gaze at the sparkling stars and moon in the dark sky. The house is like a love nest, small but unique and idyllic, about 60 m2 in size. Every single hour of the day and night is magnificent from its romantic veranda.
Other Activities: boating, rock climbing, health/beauty spa, horseshoes, scuba diving
