Our two families, 7 people altogether, stayed in the traditional cave house studio and the one bedroom apartment. Both accommodations are charming and traditional, although the cave house is truly extra-special. The views from the balconies are breathtaking, and we loved enjoying lazy breakfasts gazing at the cliffs and sea of the caldera. We bought fruit, yogurt, pastries, beverages at... More

I booked Lava Oia for one night due to a change in travel arrangements. We had already stayed in Oia for a week somewhere else. I booked via a booking site and the hotel was listed as having air conditioning and a 24 hour reception. Our room did not have air conditioning, the very small terrace was tiny, the rooms... More

We stayed 3 nights in this small but extremely charming and cute cave house. The owner is a very nice and welcoming lady who makes sure her guests feel comfortable. She is also very helpful with any requests. The view from the rooms is absolutely STUNNING. And the place is 3 minutes walking distance from the pedestrian pathway with all... More

The owner of this small apartment hotel is an exceptional woman. The service she gives is super! We stayed in the biggest apartment. Beautiful mix between old and new. Spacious bedroom and living room. Beautiful and clean bathroom. A small kitchen with everything you need. And the view out at the sea (south facing) is stunning. If you want to... More

After a busy week of travel and a missed flight, we arrived at Lava Oia at 7:30 in the morning, exhausted and hungry. Pepita greeted us, helped us get settled and brought us a lovely breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, croissants and bread, still warm from the bakery. We sat on the porch, taking in the view and the quiet. Amazing.... More

The owner of this hotel makes all the difference. From the way she designed/decorated the suites to how she manages the hotel, it's like staying with family with all the comfort of a hotel. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully furnished, the views are absolutely amazing and the location is prime. A GEM!

We stayed with Pepita at Lava Oia and were 100% delighted with the apartment (house) we had and the help Pepita gave us to make our stay in Oia the best. We wanted to tour the island by bus and see the history and the real island - not just the tourist towns and Pepita did her research and found... More

We had an amazing stay at Lava Oia's. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner who is extremely welcoming and helpful. She offered to upgrade the three of us to the larger traditional cave house for the same price as the smaller cave house we had booked. We loved staying in the traditional cave house which was clean and... More

We were a group of 15 dental students travelling from London in June and we had an amazing experience in Santorini at Lava Oia. We stayed here for three nights and rented 4 of the 5 villas. The owner Pippitza was extremely helpful and gave us directions to the best beaches, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions in town. The bus... More
