We are delighted with the house, is spectacular, the view, the location, the privacy. It offers a unique space to enjoy with great serenity. Anastasia, the owner, is a very warm person and very willing to help, with incredible hospitality, she was aleways in contact with us since we start the arrangements, coaching our trip; she offers many facilities with the flights, and she quickly resolved any questions or need we had. A family and a house absolutely recommendable and enjoyable, I hope we can come back and so our friends and familiy.
“Finestra sul blu”
Michela L'appartamento di anastasia e Nikos è straordinario: una vista mozzafiato in uno dei punti più suggestivi di Oia, già di per sé il gioiello di Santorini. Loro poi sono ospiti premurosi, ricchi di piccole, genuine attenzioni, che rendono il soggiorno un'esperienza personalizzata in un ambiente di per sé già curato e pulito. Ad esempio, all'arrivo ci hanno accolti offrendoci alcuni assaggi dei prodotti locali, come i tipici pomodorini dell'isola. Assolutamente consigliato!
“Baignade et farniente à OIa”
Parfait pour un sejour reposant en amoureux...l'appartement de type troglodyte est spacieux et calme, très bien équipé, conforme au descriptif, avec une terrasse offrant une vue epoustouflante sur la caldera. Un petit chemin pedestre mène à la mer de l'appartement, pas de plages mais on peut sauter directement des rochers pour se baigner dans une eau bleu marine de part sa profondeur. Très agréable auusi car très peu de baigneurs dans ce coin. Le village est très fréquenté des touristes mais c'est tellement charmant que l'on fait abstraction de ce desagrément. Je conseille cette location pour vacances en mode farniente, endroit idéal pour devorer de bons bouquins et se retrouver en amoureux.
From the moment Nikos picked me up at the ferry port, I knew I was in for a very special holiday. He answered my questions about Santorini on the way and his wife, Anastasia, called on his mobile to welcome me, too. Nikos cheerfully stopped so I could buy groceries and carried them and my bags down, down and down the magical winding stairways above the sea. I stayed in the studio, which is simple and cozy but has a very comfortable bed with an amazing view of the sea. I was thrilled every morning when I woke up to that stunningly beautiful caldera view. Wow! The little terrace is a delightful place to drink a glass of wine in the evening. I spoke to other travelers during my week at Oia Waves and have no doubt that I had the best value by far of anyone I met. Because I was traveling alone, Anastasia and Nikos invited me to their home for lunch and a chance to meet their adorable daughter. They are obviously a happy, loving family who delight in making their guests feel like welcome friends. I can't recommend Oia Waves highly enough! True, there are a lot of stairs, but that's part of the fun.
“Best 11 nights of our lives”
Look no further, these apartments in Oia are well worth the price, and then some. Upon arrival at the Santorini airport, Nikos (Anastasia's husband) was waiting to take us to our apartment. Nikos' family has an organic farm on Crete, so he brought us a large bag of veggies from the farm. Anastasia and Nikos were very hospitable throughout our stay and this was just the first of many times they went above and beyond for us. We traveled the entire island during our stay and our favorite part of the entire island was our veranda at Oia Waves. Lisa and I would go to the market and pick up veggies, olives, honey, meats, cheeses and grab some bread from the bakery and just sit out on our veranda and watch the water. Between the great food and the amazing wines we felt like royalty sitting on this beautiful veranda. During our stay anastasia called us periodically to make sure everything was OK. One day she stopped in and brought us some homemade crepes with different local cheeses inside. A few days later anastasia and Nikos stopped in while we were visiting the island of Thirassia and cooked some dinner for us which they left in our fridge. I will never forget the dish because it had Santorini tomatoes and braised veal in it (both favorites of mine) with some greek olive oil... it was amazing and much appreciated! Beyond the owners' hospitality, the apartment had more character than we were expecting. We stayed in the large apartment and we had plenty of room to live over the 11 night stay. The bathroom is ample, the kitchen was larger than average as far as cave homes go and the living room was spacious and comfortable. Most of your time will be spent outside enjoying the view though. I recommend staying at Oia Waves because thanks to ana and Nikos we had a perfect honeymoon. Anastasia has a love for Santorini and Thirassia that is infectious and I would recommend asking ana for sight seeing suggestions during your stay! Thanks again ana and Nikos!
Response from the owner WONDERFUL REVIEWS OR JUST WONDERFUL PERSONS Probably there is no reason to respond in a positive review, although we are always respond privately to all our guests that spend time to write a review. We have the pleasure to receive positive reviews from the vast majority of our guests, but there is something that is hidden behind these wonderful reviews: the fact that the people who wrote them, are actually wonderful persons, but they do not mentioned it on their reviews. For this reason, I am writting this response in order to reveal it. For example David, did not mentioned that before his arrival to our house, he was asking me what is the best gift that he should bring from Paris for my mother (!) who he had never met, he had just read about her! He did not mentioned how much time they spend to wash in hand a hand made tablecloth that was accidentally splotched by some drops of red wine (although I told them that it is not their obligation and that there is laundry service) or how much time he consumed talking with me about my renovation plans, providing me his ideas and his knowledge in different issues. He also did not mentioned that they left on purpose their brand new beach towels (we will keep them for the next time that you will come, David). We also very pleased with all the guests who spent much time in order to replace a broken glass, with another (usually more beautiful), who are leaving a print of their presence to our house (a painting by an artist, a bowl, a postcard with view words, a ceramic etc). Sometimes I am thinking that the decoration of this place is a result of the contributions of its guests. Some of them prefered to be lonely, some others liked to have us around, but all of them are taking such a good care of the house. Most of our guests are giving us great time and they finally become friends. And the best compliment that we often receive is that they consider our house as their own house. Thank you!
We couldn't have been more thrilled with our stay at Oia Waves. The cave house is delightful, charming, beautifully equipped, and blissfully cool. The view up the slope towards the town and out over the caldera is unreal! It was so quiet and peaceful, perfect for a restorative week. Oia is a delight and we loved our little excursions into town (don't miss the baklava at Melenion bakery, just at the top of the stairs from Oia Waves!). We felt so well taken care of; Anastasia and Nikos were so sweet and accommodating and it really did come to feel like our home for the week. We'd go back in a heartbeat!
“A little treasure in an expensive area”
We arrived late in the evening and were kindly met by the owner who showed us to the accomodation. We were offered an upgrade which gave us more space both inside and out. The 'cave' was delightful and a unique experience. It was beautifully quiet,amazingly cool inside, away from the bustle of Oia above.The place felt very homely and relaxed as at one time the owners had used it for their own home.There were a lot of steps down, but it was worth it -just remember you have to carry your own case up and down!.The outside area was not overlooked so you could sunbathe and take in the amazing view all day. At night the stars were spectacular with little ambient light to hide them. We learnt to go to Oia early morning to avoid the crowds, and to get the bus service which became very busy. Oia has lots of shops and restaurants but was generally expensive.
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was exactly what you would expect from a cliff-side place in Santorini! Really incredible view from the balcony where we spent many hours sitting and soaking it all in. Anastasia and her husband were so kind and accommodating. The only thing I would let people know about is the stairs, it's 148 to the top - my husband and I are in good shape but even so it was a bit much. Also there is no air conditioning, I think we were in town during a particularly warm spell and we spent a lot of time at the apartment. The fans kept us comfortable at night though. We loved our trip to charming Santorini.
Response from the owner Dear Amy, thank you for your review. I am happy to inform you that we have already install air cooler devices in the house. As I explained you, there are special laws and rules that do not permit interventions on the facade of the buildings, that are located in the most beautiful part of the traditional settlement of Oia, where people from all over the world are coming to photograph it. Actually we are not allowed to install even TV antennas on our houses (that is why we have cable TV).We are also not allowed to have an external device of an aircondition not only because of the preservation of the unique architecture, but also for the noise that will might disturb the neighbours. Although cave houses have a stable temperature (are usually cool during summertime and warm during winter), the air coolers will provide more comfort to our guests during the limited days of particularly hot spells. Reading in your email that "the stairs were not that big of a deal, but worth mentioning to anyone who may have knee problems" I thought that I wouldn't have recommend you to stay with us if I knew that you had a knee problem. I felt relieved, when I read that despite the fact that you usually have a bad knee, the dry Greek climate agreed with you! Thank you for mentioning that you will recommend our place to your friends. I am glad that you had great time as you wrote me, we will be happy to see you again in future and we wish you to have a wonderful marriage with your lovely husband.
If you want to truly relax on your vacation then this is the place to be. We could sit on the patio and look at the view all day long. 8 of us slept comfortably (even without a/c in the heat of July). Just leave the windows open and feel the cool caldera breeze. The beds are decent, good water pressure, and free wifi. The manager is very friendly and at your service. The famous blue domed churches are literally steps from the villa. Be prepared to walk a lot of steps though, but it's so worth it!.
“Wakker worden in een droom”
Elke morgen was het weer een feest om wakker te worden in deze kleine knusse grot. Vanuit het bed trek je zo de luiken open en zie je niets dan zee... Elke morgen had ik opnieuw het gevoel dat ik wakker werd in een droom... En als je dan naar buiten stapt en al die andere grotten om je heen ziet, gaat de droom gewoon verder!
