Virginia and her husband are so great! We have stayed here, and have friends who have stayed here since then. Everyone has loved it. This is a perfect spot for those looking for some peace and quiet. This isn't a resort. No pool or restaurant, so think of it as more of a vacation rental with perks. If this is... More

Honestly, when we all rate a place with a high score, the price of this place will go up sooner and later as more people will go for it, whatever it is a restaurant or a hotel which is not what people expected. However my heart forces me to give a highest rank to this hotel. When we moved in... More

I am so happy of all places searched we chose to stay at Virginia's! It's simply the best location in Oia- away from the crowds but very close to the main "street" and the sunset point, in the middle of everything yet very quiet. The house has everything you need and is impeccably clean. You can cook you meals right... More

Actually it’s only about 20 meters down very steep steps but Virginia’s Houses are a world away from the hordes that descend on Oia at most times of the day. I can underline all the superlatives that have already been posted about this accommodation. An exceptional position with 180° views across the sea-flooded caldera to Thirassia, the volcano, Fira, Imerovigli... More

This place is perfect if you don't need room service or a pool. The apartments are in good condition and nicely, traditionally decorated. You get your own smallish veranda with an amazing view of caldera. Virginia is very friendly and does her best to take care of guests. The location is excellent, just a 2-minute walk to the main street... More

Everything about our stay was perfect- from our reception and help down with our luggage - our host Yannus and his son Mandalus were so kind and informative about the island and house - giving us ideas of where to eat and swim. We came in at night, and when we awoke to the caldera view we were so delighted... More

I am currently writing this review while still booked in. I am sitting on the balcony over looking the most breath taking views I have ever seen. Virginia's Cave are a place like no other. Sure you have all the swanky accommodation in Oia and in Santorini for that matter- but what you have here is a place with heart... More

Virginia's House is not a traditional hotel. It is much more! Virginia will do everything to make your hollidays parfect. Booking taxis and quad motobikes (so convenient and useful to discover the island), selling you tickets for a sailing tour, giving you advices... Her traditional 'cave' appartments are beautiful and super clean. The location is amazing, just 1 minute walking... More

Virginia's Houses are awesome! A truly unique lodging experience. If you're lucky enough to get one of their cave houses you must do it. The location is excellent - close to restaurants, shopping, art, sunsets, etc. Virginia and husband Yianis are excellent hosts with great recommendations. They work to make you feel right at home and the views of the... More

My friend and I are spending the last of three nights accommodation at Virginia's (cave) Houses and we highly recommend it as a place to stay in Oia. Both Yannis and Virginia, the owners, are extremely warm, friendly and helpful hosts. Yannis, the owner, personally met us at the bus station in Oia on our arrival after 6.00pm on our... More
