About martin finkelman

I am an American retired pediatrician (non-Greek-American) who fell in love with Greeca and Santorini 30 years ago.

martin finkelman purchased this house in 1988

Why martin finkelman chose Santorini

It was sold to me by friends 25 years ago at a time when foreign residents could only 'lease' house. With the European Union and the extensions to other foreigners, I was able to own this house out-right in 2001.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location!!!

A little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I highly recommend the beautiful cave house on the caldera. It was the vacation of our dream. We wanted to stay in a Greek home instead of a modern hotel. The owner called upon our arrived to make sure we had arrived safely and found everything to our liking. He had a journal to tell you about everything in the home. The cave home was just lovely but when you walk out the front door ever day and see the view of the Agean Sea, what else can you ask for. What else---the gorgeous sunset every evening and you never have to leave you terrace. I would highly recommend this lovely place to anyone. You will have a wonderful time We definitely want to go back. Joyce
