I took my teenage son on a 2 week trip around Greece and I am so thankful that I saved Helios House in Oia for our last stop because it was truly the most perfect and magical spot. Nothing could have topped our time there. First, the Cave House is breathtaking. It is fresh, clean, cozy, cool, and well-stocked for breakfast and drinks.. It is newly remodeled with a modern deep tub that will make you relax and never want to get out! Next is the owner, Maria. She would get 10 stars from me! She explained the house, and the flow of the day in Santorini, and was available for anything we needed. Her adorable elderly neighbors will make you feel like you are living the Greek life, so authentic and real. Then, the sunset. Maria has one of only a handful of private patios that have a 100% direct view of the sunset. It is amazing to watch people flock to view the glorious red sunset every night, all standing along the walkways, while we were there sitting comfortable on our deck drinking wine and snacks prepared by Maria and her sweet neighbors. I loved it there. I felt like I was really in Greece and had the feeling of family, yet also had all the privacy we wanted. Finally, the long steps down to the sea is a must! Perfect location to take your time, walk down the steps, take a dip in the sea, snorkel or jump off the famous rock, eat lunch and then make your way back to paradise inside your Cave House. We will be back!
