We stayed here just recently, in September and loved the experience. The rooms are decorated with period antiques; the location is perfect with outstanding views of the caldera and the famous Oia whitewashed, blue-domed buildings. It is in the center of town, but very quiet. Takis and is wife are welcoming and charming hosts who are always available, but not... More

Four of us, two retired couples, stayed at the Sea Captain's House for three nights. It's an old but very well maintained house converted to a boutique hotel. Perfect unobtrusive care from the innkeeper and his lovely wife. The only hotel in Oia to meet your incoming transportation with a donkey to carry your luggage. Perfect Santorini views from your...

Sadly I am unable to review room as I was not collected from the airport despite paying for prearranged pick up, after waiting for an hour and missing the iconic sunset I made my own way the the sea captains house to find that the manger had me booked for the next night. On reviewing paperwork he apologised I had... More

Although there was a misunderstanding for your visit, I thought that upon your departure that you were pleased with the upgraded accommodation with outdoor jacuzzi, views to the caldera and sea from the famous Oia castle location, full breakfast (instead of the originally booked Continental breakfast) plus the complimentary departure transfer to your private sailing boat. I enjoyed our chat... More

I can hardly imagine there is a more beautiful place to stay in Santorini. In fact, there are few places as beautiful in the world. I stayed here with a friend at the end of August. We never stopped saying WOW every time we stepped out of the Sea Captain's Suite to see the view. Takis and Demetria are so... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Sailing Suite. When we stepped through the door from the Oia steps to our private balcony the view literally took my breath away. The room was fantastic and breakfast served on the balcony looking out over the Caldera so special. You must visit Oia and stay at the Sea Captain's. It is a memory... More

I don't often take the time to write reviews on Trip Advisor but this place was so fantastic, I can't help but go on and on about it. Takis was the perfect host, our breakfast was outstanding, every detail was taken care of and the room was the picture of perfection. When I think about good hospitality, I will think... More

We arrived in Santorini never having been here before, and without a reservation. We searched online for a unique place to stay on our short trip, and the pictures and description of the 1864 Sea Captain's home stood out from the rest. The rooms looked as they would have in 1864. They were furnished in antiques and were immaculate, thanks... More

From the moment of our arrival in Oia (just past midnight) to the time of our departure, Takus, Demitra and Romi were the perfect hosts. They made every effort to assure that my wife and my stay in Santorini was exceptional. From helping secure the best tables in restaurants to recommended places to visit they never had a misstep in... More

We were there for 2 nights in July 2014. Takis and his wonderful wife, Dimitra and the housekeeper make you feel like you are guests in someones home. The rooms are wonderful, this is a small 3 room hotel with a fantastic view and location. The breakfasts are 4 star as are the amenities and the quality of the sheets... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at 1864 The Sea Captain's House in Oia of Santorini. We were there for 3 days in July 2014. The Captain's Suite was perfect for my wife and me, and our son who was happy in his own private room - the loft, which is part of the suite. The room is clean and nicely... More
