Description from the owner
This whitewashed cave house, hanging on the cliffs of the caldera, is part of a traditional synthesis of houses owned by a family of architects. The complex used to be the old bakery of Oia and it was recently restored with respect to the unique local architecture. The marble floors, the built in beds and the antique furniture together with modern amenities strike the right balance between sophistication and coziness.
Out on the wide terrace literally on the rim of the caldera, the sensational view of the volcano will leave you breathless. The deep blue of the sea landscape and the picturesque
domed houses carved in the volcanic e...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Look No Further - This is the Place to Stay!
My partner and I spent a week on Naxos this past October, and then came to Santorini and stayed at Laskarina and Jon's Cave House for two nights. It was an unbelievable experience. I only wish we had done the trip in reverse -- a week on Santorini and two days on Naxos! If perfection can be found in a rental, this place has achieved it. The furnishings, while spare, impart a beauty and peacefulness that invites relaxation. The location is simply stunning. ("Stunning" doesn't even begin to describe it. Really, there are no words that can do it justice.) As others have said, we were aware of the rush of people each evening up on the main road heading for the edge of the island to take in the sunset, but felt no compunction to join them: our view was better overall. I particularly enjoyed taking in that view from the spa, which Jon was good enough to keep operational just for me. We lucked out: there was no one renting the unit next door, so we had the whole patio area to ourselves. We did not get to meet Laskarina, who was busy with a colicky infant I think, but she was terrific to communicate with by email when I was booking the rental. Jon was lovely (in a quiet, gentle way -- really a lovely man), accommodating and present only if we needed him. I can't wait to find a way to get back there. In the meantime, I'm recommending Cave House to everyone I know! (Caveat: I would not recommend it -- or anywhere in Oia -- to anyone who has trouble walking. The houses are built into steep cliffs, and making your way down to the house is a bit of a challenge to leg muscles, even for those with no disabilities. I cannot, sadly, recommend that my parents (who are around 80) make this trip, for example.) On our last evening, we walked down the famous 300 steps and had dinner at Katina Fish house. The food was terrific (though not cheap). But mostly I'm so glad we walked down -- I was unenthusiastic about it, but it was really a great experience to see the town built into the cliff from the perspective of those steps as we descended. Just try to make sure you do it when it's still light out -- there's a fair amount of donkey manure you'll want to avoid stepping in! The other restaurant I would recommend is Melenio Cafe. We only had dessert there but the setting is simply beyond description. Overall, it was one of the best vacations of my life, and I now keep photos from it as my screensaver so I can be reminded of it frequently.
Everyday you wake up to Heaven!!
One feels totally speechless the first time you step on the ' Cave house ' terrace, it is so utterly beautiful that it's almost unbelievable. You feel so privileged staying in this stunning,immaculate apartment.
Everything about the ' Cave house' was perfect ,the spaces, the quaint kitchen with Caldera view, the pristine white walls, the linens and an absolutely huge terrace where you could sit all day and watch the Caldera view.We loved the little details with which Laskarina has left her touches all over the house.Laskarina and Yanni are wonderfull hosts, very caring and thoughtful,always just a call away.Thank you Laskarina,Yanni for one of the most wonderful holidays ever.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Oia. The villa was beautiful, overlooking the caldera and the sea. Our host, Laskarina, was wonderful, as well. She greeted us at the bus stop and led us to our villa where there was water, fruit, and a bottle of wine waiting. She also emailed us numerous suggestions on things to see and do in Oia. We loved her suggestion of Skiza for morning crepes and Fanari for dinner. Fanari had an absolutely beautiful view of the sunset. Thanks so much for a great stay!

Picture perfect paradise
A traditional cave house in Oia, understated elegance with a designer's flair welcomed and sheltered us in the ever changeable springtime in Greece. Quiet, private, comfortable and a million miles from mundane. Our hosts were helpful and very hospitable. Dream here with your eyes open, we did!
