Excellent stay at Helios house. Very clean and comfortable . Had every amenity that we needed. Great

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at Helios house. We liked that is was away from town and quiet. The roof top terrace with pool was our favourite spot for reading and watching the sunrise. Panos delivered us fresh bread every morning and made excellent recommendations for dinners out and a sunset boat cruise. We loved every minute of our vacation. Bravo!

Secluded gem

  • 5 of 5

The place is not in one of the major hotspots, but it’s not very far from all the main attractions, especially with a cheap car rental arranged by the host. The restaurant down the street (Metaxi mas) was the best place we dined at during our stay, we went there twice. As many have mentioned, the property manager Panos was very attentive. The rooms were beautiful and traditional cave style - very unique! The terrace had a small pool and lounge chairs, so that was a bonus. I highly recommend this place.

Loved Santorini Cavern House

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late and Panos, the ultimate house manager, was waiting for us with groceries in the fridge to welcome us after a long journey from the US. We instantly felt welcome and at home. The house is lovely, the bedrooms dark to allow for a great sleep, but sunshine awaiting on the darling courtyard and pool terrace above with a beautiful sea view. Panos returned the next morning with fresh bread and more information to help us get a lay of the land. We realized having a car was a necessity but we quickly loved being away from the most crowded tourist areas and back to our little haven in Exo Gonia. We loved the little town Pyrgos which was nearby. We loved the hike from Fira to Oia. We loved the boat day trip Panos arranged for us. We loved eating at Metaxy Mas right nearby. We loved Panos! A perfect 6 night trip for a family of 4 and Sarah was wonderful to communicate with ahead of time. Highly recommend!!

Tranquil Cave House

  • 4 of 5

The villa was ideally place to see the whole island. Sarah arranged for a car to be delivered to the villa on Sunday morning, the car was very reasonably priced.

The villa was very clean and well equipped. Panos the villa manager delivered fresh warm bread every morning(a lovely touch). Panos also arranged boat trips for us and booked restaurants with transport.

All in all we had a lovely week .

Many thanks to you both

Wonderful Cave House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The transfer to and from the airport was great. Panos was so very nice and helpful. Came by every morning to check on our stay and see if we needed anything. We enjoyed the fresh bread he brought with him. He set up a sunset sailing cruise for us and it was fantastic. The sunrise views from the deck are beautiful. I would recommend a car, which can easily be set up for you before you arrive, as that's the best way to explore and see the island. The house is in a lovely quiet neighborhood, but just a short, easy drive to all the fun things to do and see on the island. Overall a great place to stay, would definitely like to return someday!
