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 beautiful double bed. There is additionally a small adjacent room to the master bedroom. In the living area there are two traditional 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 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.

1) Bottled mineral and sparkling water, wine, juice/sweet upon arrival.

Why Maria chose Santorini

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.

Hospitality at its finest

  • 5 of 5

The Blue and White villa not only provided spectacular views as promised and was steps from restaurants and shops, it also came with Maria's (and Serge's) warm hospitality. We arrived to a fully stocked refrigerator as well as other appreciated amenities such as a washing machine and real hairdryer.

Maria made sure we not only knew where to see the best sunset in Oia, but set up a private terrace with a table and chairs for the viewing. We were pointed in the right direction on places to eat and things to do. Maria helped make this a memorable trip for my daughter and me. We'll definitely return again one day with the rest of the family.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay in Santorini and Maria made it even more perfect. She greeted us with wine and snacks as the sunset in Santorini (w the most perfect view) and gave us so many recommendations of places to eat and things to do - all of which were perfect!

The cave house was great- amazing views, cute, comes with breakfast options, etc.

we LOVED our stay here and would recommend it to anyone else!

Breathtaking views, comfortable, clean place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay! Maria is a marvelous hostess. She and her staff could not have been more attentive and welcoming. The food at the local restaurants was terrific and the wait staffs were gracious. The visit to the volcanic hot spring was a fantastic experience unlike any I have ever had and was arranged by Maria with her friends. I heartily recommend Maria's cave house to anyone intending to visit Santorini. You won't do better anywhere else.

The villa is 2 minutes walking distance from shops, restaurants, market, galleries, and 5 minutes from the bus and taxi terminal. It is located in the old city of Oia near the Castle which is the famous 'Sunset Point' of Greece! It is also 5 minutes walking distance from the Lounge Cafe Pool Bar called “Lyogerma” and 10 minutes' drive from the three beaches that are near Oia. There are many exotic places to go swimming, sandy or with volcanic rocks, all over the island!

Other Activities: You can take a boat trip around the volcano,explore an archaeological excavation of a 3000 year-old civilization, or perhaps visit some cultural museums. You can tour ancient Byzantine churches and charming wineries, or go trekking along the rim of the caldera and discover its traditional villages and stunning scenery. You can also ride on a donkey to the old port where you can go on an excursion to the volcano and swim in its hot springs. There is so much to do and this is the ideal place to enjoy doing it.
