Enchanting traditional cave house

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect place to explore Santorini, take on the numerous water sports, eat, drink or just be lazy. Away from the hustle and bustle of Fira and Kamira yet only minutes by car to both.
An excellent Taverna just a few minutes walk away - Metaximas - you need to book though because it is very popular.
Clean with all the bits and bobs you need to cook and wash. Spectacular terrace overlooking the sea and a plunge pool in which to cool off and Sarah and Kimberley were only ever a message away for anything we needed.

The perfect place to relax!

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is amazing, the perfect place to relax or, as I found, be inspired! The location is perfect for exploring the island. As for the hosts, Sarah and Eddy could be more obliging. The pools and property were maintain dot a very high standard and having worked on such places in the past I can appreciate the work that goes into maintaining the place to such a high standard.

I would recommend this place if you want to immerse yourself in the relaxing atmosphere a traditional Greek village this is the place, to relax and enjoy all the island has to offer!

Thank you Sarah and Eddy!

Unforgettable holiday

  • 5 out of 5
From booking until departure Sarah and Eddy were great hosts and did their best to make our stay on Santorini unforgettable and as comfortable as possible.
When we arrived at Santorini Airport Sarah was waiting for us and offered some refreshments. She also took care of our luggage.
At Cavern House Helios we found the fridge already filled with everything you need after a long journey. After a little tour through the house Sarah gave us useful tips about the island, restaurants, shops, beaches ...
The location of the cavern house is awesome, because it's situated in Exo Gonia in the middle of the island, which makes it a great place to relax (far away from mass tourism). You can go everywhere on Santorini within a short drive (car is required!).
During our stay Sarah came around regularly and asked, if everything is ok and if we would need something.

Thank you very much, Sarah and Eddy! You are great hosts! We had a wonderful stay!

Vacances de rêve dans un cadre idyllique

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé deux semaines parfaites dans les deux maisons de Sarah et Eddy : une semaine dans Anthea et une semaine dans Helios. Toutes les deux ont beaucoup de charme et sont uniques. On se sent tout de suite chez soi et tout invite à la relaxation et au farniente : les maisons sont très accueillantes, chaleureuses et possèdent tout le confort nécessaire pour apprécier encore davantage notre séjour : rien ne manquait ! De plus la déco est très jolie et dans le style épuré et naturel de l'île. La cour ombragée d'Hélios est un havre de paix et donne envie de se mettre à table sous la treille de vigne et les bougainvilliers. La terrasse avec la petite piscine permettant de se rafraîchir à tout moment invite au repos sous le soleil... ou à l'ombre ! La vue que l'on a depuis la terrasse sur la mer et l'île d'Anafi est magnifique, particulièrement au lever du soleil.
De plus Sarah est toujours disponible pour tout ce qu'on peut lui demander et à l'écoute de ses hôtes ; nous avons beaucoup apprécié ses petites attentions comme le fait de nous apporter en cadeau un panier de figues fraîches sauvages au début de chaque séjour ! Tout est très propre et bien tenu. Autre point très appréciable : la taverne Metaxi Mas, une des meilleures de l'île, qui se trouve à quelques pas des villas et propose des plats délicieux et pas très chers.
Il faut, bien sûr, une voiture pour se déplacer dans l'île et faire les courses, mais c'est ainsi que l'on peut jouir d'un cadre calme et d'une belle tranquillité.
Nous reviendrons sûrement à Santorin car c'est une île unique et inoubliable, d'une beauté saisissante, et il y a de grandes chances pour que ce soit chez Sarah et Eddy !

Paradise in Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I arrived by ferry. Our ferry was about 45 minutes late but Eddy waited for us patiently at the port. He then drove us up to the villa and helped us get our luggage inside. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of this place. The photos just cannot even capture how wonderful it is. We arrived to find plenty of food and beer/wine in the fridge which is just what we needed after our long ferry ride. Eddy let us settle in and then drove us down to the bike shop and helped us hire quad bikes so we could get around the island. He also recommended some great places for us to go to - such as the nearby taverna (Metaximas?) which is by far the best food on the island, and the nearby winery (Santo wines) which has a gorgeous view of the sunset (personally I thought it was better than Oia - which gets too crowded during the sunset). Four more of our friends arrived a bit later, so there were 6 of us staying in the villa. We were very comfortable and the rooms were nice and cool and spacious. We had everything we could possibly need at the villa, but I'm sure if there was something we needed Sarah and Eddy would not hesitate to help us. The location of the villa is perfect. It is situated in Exo Gonia, right in the middle of the island, which makes it very easy to explore everywhere on quad bike. The outdoor courtyard was an ideal place for BBQs, surrounded by beautiful flowers and grape vines. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. Sarah and Eddy are very lovely people and will make you feel entirely comfortable. Sarah was extremely helpful when we found out our afternoon ferry to Ios was cancelled and had to return our bikes, pack, get to the port and buy our tickets for another ferry all within an hour - she rushed over immediately after finding out and drove us around.
Thank you for the most wonderful week of my life so far. I am most definitely returning sometime in the future!

The Perfect Villas

  • 5 out of 5
After receiving the news that our friends where getting married in Santorini we searched long and hard for accommodation for 6 couples and we were so pleased we didn't go for a hotel and rented both ajoining cave houses (Antheas/Helios) for the week.
The villas are amazing and perfect for family or friends to rent, they have AC in each room and everything you will need for your holiday. Sarah and Eddy were lovely, they met us from the airport and helped with our booked car hire/luggage etc, they stocked our fridges with drinks and some snacks on arrival and bought us bread over, popping by occasionally to check on us and clean the pools.
The villas have the added bonus of wifi, washing machines (with powder) and a welcome pack with lots of info for the Island - all came in handy!
We would advise car hire as they are based in a residential area but the villas are so nice that you would be very happy spending time there. We booked a car for the week but found we spent at least two full days at the villas, just chilling and enjoying the pools and views. We all stayed in one night and used the BBQ, food from the supermarket is reasonable and only a 5 min drive away.
The villas are close and 5min walk to the award winning restaurant called Metamiximas where we ate twice, the food is lovely and it's open late, food comes as and when it's ready, expect to spend around €20-€30 euros per person when eating out, drinking, starters etc...
The villas are close to Pygros/Fira but I would get a taxi or drive, as the roads could be dangerous to walk on, its only €10 to Pygros, which is nothing when its uphill all the way. Fira is around €15 and has a lot more going on but my favorite restaurant was the Mediteran restaurant in Oia, which was amazing and worth a visit, book the top table on the terrace to watch the sunset - beautiful!
All in all could not have been happier, I thought the villas were amazing value for money and we had the perfect holiday.
The only thing I would change, is for them to have long length mirrors in each room, locks on the bathrooms (is greece thou) and longer BBQ utensils. None of these things would stop me renting them again in the future!
I hope to return within the next couple of years, either with family or friends. I think for value or money, I would not book into a hotel or rent anywhere else on this island.
I forgot to mention that the villas are very close to Santo winery, should you be attending a wedding there! :)
