Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Oia - Cactus Villa

Sea views at the front, mountain views at the rear.

Our property is composed of two adjacent villas set in an acre of private land. Quiet and spacious, laid out on two levels, each of our homes is the ideal accommodation for a couple or a family of four. The upper level has the master bath and bedroom as well as a balcony to watch your most memorable sunrises from. The ground level consists of a living room with a couch/bed for two, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining table for 6 people, and a bathroom with shower. Each little villa looks out to an airy and shady patio with day bed, hammock, table and chairs for relaxing and enjoying a cold drink or having lunch or dinner. Tastefully decorated, the house will make you feel at home. Our purpose is to make guests feel that they move to their own holiday house in Santorini. Laundry facility is in only one of the premises.

One villa is separate from the other so that each party of guests is not disturbed by the other. Perfect, though, for friends who travel together and want to be close but separate.

About Anna

I came in Santorini about 25 years ago as a tourist and I was spellbound by this place. I have my own business on the island. Lately I bought this beautiful house at the most quiet spot for my retirement. Until then I have decided to rent it.

Anna purchased this villa in 2011

Why Anna chose Oia

I chose this part of Santorini because of its peacefulness and its rural atmosphere which is rare in super touristy Santorini.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Un paradiso! Una villa meravigliosa immersa in un ambiente unico. Perfetta per una famiglia con bambini con tutte le comodita' . Dalla terrazza del piano superiore si vede il mare e la sera una stupenda distesa di stelle. L'host e' stato molto carino e gentile con noi, ci e' venuto a prendere all'aeroporto e ci ha accompagnato a casa spiegandoci lungo il percorso tutti i particolari dell' isola, e ci ha dato anche tanti buoni consigli su ristoranti e spiagge. Posizione strategica per visitare tutta l'isola, parcheggio interno ( e' essenziale un mezzo di trasporto)

We arrived in Santorini very early in the morning. Nikos met us at a café very close to the airport and escorted us to the property. Some of the roads leading to the villa are very narrow and made me nervous.

Once we got to the villa, Nikos spent a lot of time going over a map with us. He recommended beaches and restaurants, and told us which places to avoid. One night he even made a reservation for us at a nice restaurant in Oía so we were able to enjoy the famous Oía sunset while we dined (I can't remember the name, but if you go you should ask Nikos the name because they had the best baklava on the island).

The villa itself was lovely, both inside and out. It had all the comforts of home and was decorated with the utmost care. The outside seating lounging was a favorite for our family. There was plenty of comfortable seating. An added benefit is that there was a farmer living nearby. He speaks no English but was so friendly. He gave us fresh eggs, watermelon, cucumber, grapes, and wine during our stay. Everything was delicious!

We spent our time in Santorini exploring the island: the towns, beaches, and historical sights. This villa was centrally located to everything, which made our trip all the more enjoyable.

I highly recommend Cactus Villa for your stay in Santorini!

We have booked our stay near Pori in a wonderful villa. We arrived at Thira airport and were warmly welcomed by Nikos, the owner of the house who escorted us to the house. We had rented a car and everything went very vell - easy and practical.

20 minutes later we reached the rental house. It was really warm and welcoming and we immediatly felt at home. The cactus garden that Nikos and Anna design and planted, the beautiful terrace outside which was wonderful for long breakfast and bruched as well as barbecues in the evening (a barbecue was provided by Nikos) were just beautiful.
The nearest house is about 300 meters away so calm and peace are for sure. The house itself was nicely decoreted, everything that was needed for cooking was there, The bedrom is on the upper floor and has its own big balcony with beautiful view on the sunrise. Kitchen was nice and modern and the living room big enough to accomodate another person (a friend came by during our stay and slept on the sofabed which was really comfortable for her).

Nikos was really healpful and gave us a map of the island and recommendation were to go or were not to go. He gave us really good restaurant hints (always better to ask local people!).

The side were the house is located is the beach side (east), we always went to Baxedes beach (5 min driving) since the were no rocks to get in and the rent for sunshade and chair was only 5 Euros per day for 2 persons. Nearby is a good beachbar which makes good fruit smoothies!

We went on high season and were amased how few people were on the beach! So if you are looking for a stressless time without any tourist loads this place is perfect.

To get to Oia, which was the most beautiful city we have seen (we visted the whole island) it took only 15 minutes. Parking was not problem.There were many supermarkets which selled everything needed. The sunset in Oia is really worth to be seen but try to avoid touristplace because you may get claustrophobic :)
Nikos gave us a good recommendatiopn (again!) from were we could see the sunset in total tranquililty!

All in all a wonderful stay with friendly and helpful owners. Tranquillity, beaches, side seeing, beautiful house and terrace.

We would recommend this place to our friends.

Car: necessary

By a fishermen's port, and looking at the sea, this house is conveniently located between Fira and Oia, the two prime destinations of Santorini.

A quiet sandy beach is at walking distance. The nearest organized beach, Vourvoulos beach, is just 2 miles away.Many more taverns and restaurants as well as super markets, tourist offices and rental car agencies can be found at Fira or Oia, both just 5 miles away.

The house is surrounded by one acre of land which carries pine, fig, apricot, lemon, olive trees, and a huge collection of cactuses. Right outside our walls there is three tiny churches which our visitors are free to visit. We also offer honey which is collected on the slopes of the mountain behind our house.

Only half a mile away, there is a secluded black sand beach protected by a red volcanic rock which I call Santorini's small red beach. One mile further towards Oia is the famous Coloumbo beach. The other way towards Fira, is Vourvoulos beach with a fish tavern next to a picturesque fishermen's port.
