About the property


Welcome to our second home in Santorini! Our first home, in Imerovigli, is listing 220376 on Homeaway and has had a history of excellent reviews from our past guests.

This new addition to our family's rentals has been an exciting one that we can't wait to share with the rest of the world .

Recently completed, it is a fully restored cave house spanning 2000 square feet of indoor space and 1000 square feet of outdoor lounge space.

It has a modern look while still keeping an emphasis on the old architecture of the past .

Our villa is an ideal place to call home while visiting SantorinI, a short walk to Fira, and Just across from the caldera views from the village of Firostefani. It faces toward the opposite side of the caldera from which water views are still offered. It comprises 2 large master suites, each with a kind bed, and another large room connected to one master which can be used as a master living room or an additional bedroom with 2 beds, offering a complete family set

up. The bathrooms are luxurious, with rain showers, cathedral ceilings and all carved in to the rock. The kitchen and living area are spacious and modern and separate the 2 sleeping quarters. All 3 spaces have their own door which lead out to a spacious veranda with private pool, bbq, patio table and sunbeds with umbrella.

About Andreas

We are moved to Santorini from Canada and California back in 1998 and decided to call this our permanent home. Having done so we purchased our other Villa on the Caldera (Imerovigli) in 2000 and have been renting ever since we moved back to Canada in 2006. Since then we have catered to so many beautiful families and as of last year decided to purchase this particular property and rent it out for the world to enjoy! We visit Santorini on a yearly basis and have 2 beautiful homes there.



Andreas purchased this villa in 2001

Why Andreas chose Firostefani

We saw this property and we knew the potential that it could offer. This is unusually large property with vast openings and open concept living, which does not come easy for Santorini homes. Right in the heart of it all the location is perfect.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy the walking distance to the square of Fira and 1 minute walk to the town of Firostefani.

The 3000 sq ft of living space inside and out is among the largest in property rentals.

A fully functional kitchen is also rare to find as well as the unique rain showers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived at night, and the villa looked stunning. We had airport transfers arrange and these went perfectly. On our arrival, we were met by the lovely Vanda, who was extremely helpful and supportive with our questions during our stay, including helping us to arrange car hire, which we'd definitely recommend to explore the beautiful island. The villa is very private, something that villas facing the caldera lack, but does still offer a sea view. Comfortable large beds and plenty of seating space. The kitchen was perfectly adequate for our needs during our stay. The outside area and pool are perfect for relaxing after a days sight seeing. Would highly recommend booking, you won't be disappointed.

Great location with an appropriate name

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Island Oasis was wonderful. The location was perfect, as we could easily walk to town for meals or supplies. It was a quiet and very peaceful house on a beautiful island. My tip to future visitors: make sure you take the pedestrian path into town, not the road as we mistakenly did the first day.

Séjour inoubliable dans cette villa tout confort

  • 4 of 5

Notre séjour était super dans cet oasis au calme et à 5 minutes à pieds du centre ville et des commerces. L'ile de sanction est merveilleuse et la villa était très confortable ! Andrea nous a réservé un très bel accueil et était à notre écoute pendant tout le séjour ! La villa est un bon point de départ pour le circuit de randonnée menant jusqu a oia absolument fabuleux ! Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette villa et Andrea !

Charm and comfort on beautiful Santorini!

  • 5 of 5

Oasis is a beautifully and cleverly designed, very spacious, cave house within easy walking distance to Fira and even closer to Fiorstefani. Vanda greeted us warmly and provided excellent advice and support during our stay. There are really two sections to the house, so for the four of us, we each had our own spaces. The spaces are all connected with no doors which was surprising at first but it ended up not being an issue at all. It's large enough that the lack of doors between the spaces made no difference with respect to privacy or sound. Lela, the housekeeper, came every day to make beds and straighten up and that was an unexpected treat. By all means do not miss a dinner at Yalos, a restaurant on the beach at Exo Gialos. The setting is beautiful and food the best we had...and very reasonable. If we come back to Santorini, we all would stay at Oasis again in a heartbeat!

Stunning well located luxurious accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

This place is as impressive as the photos suggest. It is immaculate, modern, and huge. Everything is top of the line, it is cleaned every day, and the outdoor space including the pool was a perfect addition. The owner Susan and the property manager Vanda ensured a wonderful stay, helping us organize excursions and even yoga, at our request. Hope I have a chance to return.

You MUST stay her

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice! Firstly, the caretaker Vanda is great. She arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport. Upon arrival, she gave a very detailed review of the area and the top spots to see. There is a beautiful pool which is a great place to cool off. We hired a yoga instructor one day and it was perfect. The location is perfect. Literally a 10 min walk to the heart of Fira if you want shopping and people watching; Imerovigli is also 10 min the other way, and has the beautiful views. There are also local restaurants if you don't want to walk the 10 min. Bus stop is up 3 flights of stairs. Very easy. The place is beautifully done. We were three women, and we basically had a wing to ourselves! Very private and well maintained. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
