The perfect retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Let me start by saying that this is the first holiday that really did what it said on the box. Being met at the airport with our hire car waiting was only the start. Sarah took us to the wonderful cavern house which was spotlessly clean and so well equipped. The fridge was stocked with water, beer, wine, raki, cheese, meat and milk along with fresh fruit, tea, coffee etc. Sarah spent time explaining how to get around the island, where to go and what to see and the guide that is in the cavern was also very informative and helpful. Sarah recommended the taverna in the village for our first evening meal and booked us a table. What wonderful food - we ate there 3 times!!!! We also had some amazing seafood at stunning beach locations.
The cavern is set on a hillside with wonderful views from the sun terrace and its so peaceful and relaxing yet within easy reach of the whole island. We would recommend having a car as the roads are easily manageable and very sensible drivers.
Santorini had been on my wish list for many years and can honestly say it was as beautiful as I'd hoped. This is a truly special place to stay and visit.

I must just add that being a cat lover it was lovely to have daily visits from the local cats (especially the two black boys) who are like a double act.

Thank you Sarah and Eddy for making our stay so perfect.

Our new favourite destination!

  • 5 out of 5
We rented the property for a week at the end of August for my sister's 30th Birthday. In the lead up to the week, I sent many emails to Sarah asking ideas for birthday surprises and also asking her to decorate the house with 30th balloons,bunting, confetti etc that I would send over. Sarah was always extremely prompt, friendly and accommodating with her responses and the house was decorated as I asked (with the added bonus of a bottle of champers and other goodies!!) when we arrived.
The house was bigger than the photos suggest with plenty of room for 3 couples. Kimberley, the house manager, met us from the airport at 11.30pm and sorted out our car rental. We then followed her and our luggage to the house. She gave us lots of tips on where to go during the week and came and cleaned the pool a number of times. She was also in contact the day before the private catamaran trip I had booked through Sarah to arrange times etc. As our flight home was at midnight, we were able to check out of the villa late (2pm) and Kimberley met us at the airport at 10pm with our bags.
The villa has beautiful views over Kamari, the mountains and the sea and we spent many hours sitting in the pool taking in these views. The pool was a necessity in the hot weather and we always retreated there after a day out sightseeing.
There is lots to do in Santorini and the highlights for us were the open air cinema, fireworks from the Caldera (only happens once a year I believe, in Aug), shopping in Fira, sunset at Santo winery and the private sunset boat cruise from Oia.
The villa is so pretty and is quiet as it is away from the roads. It means a little walking uphill to get to it from the car park but the views on the way are worth it! The island is one of the most beautiful I have visited and we had such an amazing time, our only regret is not booking for two weeks!!
Thanks to Sarah, Eddy, Kimberley and the wonderful island of Santorini for making my sister's 30th an experience we will never forget!

What a fantastic holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We were greeted by Kimberley at the airport who very kindly picked up our luggage and dropped us off to the lovely Perivoli beach stretch as we had arrived early in the morning prior to check out time. We were picked up again to arrive at the lovely Anthea villa which was cleaned spotless. It was very well laid out, with spacious well equipped kitchen, living room and good size bedrooms. The bathrooms were an absolute delight with a big bathtub and a power shower, and hot water supply was never a problem. Again, bathrooms were cleaned spotless.
There were some fine but excellent touches to the whole experience:

1. Interestingly enough, something which we had not encountered before, the fridge was stocked with milk, juice, wine, cheese, fresh fruit etc, just until we could find our way around. Kimberley very kindly gave us a lift to and from the supermarket on the arrival date for us to do some extra shopping.

2. Pick and drop off to and from airport and luggage storage.

3. At the villa, there was a booklet with very useful information making the whole experience much easier and so much more fun. Information included numbers to some fantastic restaurants, pointers for activities such as boat trips, museums, beach bars etc.

4. When it came to renting a car, the girls were extremely efficient at accommodating the request. We had one for 40 euros/day with full comprehensive insurance cover within the hour and on 20 euros of fuel, we have been everywhere on the island.

5. The pool at the top of the hill provided a fantastic chillout area anyone feel like having a lazy day.

So in summary, this was an absolutely fantastic experience, a great holiday and we definitely going back

Thank you.

Fantastic

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful place to stay,everything you could possibly need in a beautiful setting.Our party consisted of 6 and we were very comfortable and looked after by Kimberley from the minute we arrived and were picked up at the airport.The fridge was stocked with a few essentials including a bottle of champagne for our daughters 30th birthday,a lovely surprise.
The house is roomy with lots of outdoor space including a very welcome plunge pool a must in the hot weather,and also very peaceful away from the hustle and bustle.
Also a gorgeous restaurant 3 minutes away we did'nt find any better while we were on Santorini.
From the minute I booked the house Sarah answered any queries promptly and everything went smoothly from start to finish,I would certainly recommend Cavern Anthea.

Real Gem

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing villa, hospitality and service! A great place to stay, great views, cute pool and deck, away from the hussle and bustle but central to lots of great spots on the island. Our hosts could not have been more helpful! We got help with taxis, restaurants, quads and tour booking were all too easy. Their great local knowledge and recommendations were invaluable.
We were met at the port, helped to our accommodation, had a car waiting for us, along with a beautiful house, cold beer, home made wine, and essentials already in the fridge.
A truly memorable experience and one I would recommend to anyone visiting the island, the villa is located central to the port, wineries, beaches and Thira.
Nothing was too much trouble, you will fall in love with the villa, your hosts and their hospitality. We will be back!
