“Utterly beautiful”
Reviewed June 7, 2010

My husband and I stayed at Dream Blue Cave House (1 of the 2 houses managed by My Blue) for 6 days in early May for our honeymoon. We were very pleased with all the correspondence through emails and phone calls with Louanna, the owner of the property, prior arrival. She was very attentive and caring, even though, she wasn't around during our stay, she asked her brother to welcome us and called us regularly to check if everything was going well and if we needed any recommendation.
Dream Blue has 2 bedrooms: One master bedroom with a queen size bed and one with two single beds. We use the smaller room to store our luggage. The house is decorated beautifully in white and blue. The bathroom is beautiful with wonderful toiletries from L'occitane. There are two bathrooms: one attached to the master bedroom with a standing shower the other one is attached to the kitchen with a bathtub. The kitchen is fully equipped and literally has everything needed. We used the kitchen everyday to cook breakfast and probably other meals too when we were too lazy to get out.
The private terrace is spacious with a jacuzzi, really great (but I only tried it on my last night because I was too busy exploring other parts of the island). When we first arrived, we were welcomed by Alberto, the handsome porter. It was quite a challenge initially with all the climbing up and down in Ia village. Definitely not a recommendation for people with walking difficulty. However, the fact that we are living right in the most beautiful spot of the whole island made up for it.
The housekeeper came to clean everyday (washing and ironing clothes and washing dishes). Louanna also gives to guests a mobile phone with an amount of money to make local phone calls and to contact her or the housekeeper. She also provided a list of things to do in Santorini with recommendations of restaurants as well. We have tried several of her recommendations and they were all successful. My husband who is also in hospitality industry had to claim it out loud that Louanna was so thoughtful, she didn't miss a single detail. Inside the drawer where you find the phone, there is a binoculars if you want to use it. We didn't.
On top of Dream Blue, you can find some of the most famous restaurants in Santorini. Close by is also one of the most beautiful spot in all of the island to watch the sunset (close to the old castle).
We rented a convertible Nissan car at a near by Drossos car renting company (recommended by Louanna and a few others in Santorini) and got a very good price. The parking space is very close to the house as well.
Santorini was amazing and I am definitely coming back here with my family in the future and will choose My Blue again.
Next time, though, I will remember to pack some warm clothes for the evening as it can get quite chilly.
Thank you, Louanna for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at the Island Blue villa of My Blue and were immediately enchanted by the beautiful view. My husband and I travel a lot and this time we brought my in-laws with us because we heard of Santorini's charm and beauty. Louanna, the owner of the villas, was accomodating, kind, friendly and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. The villa we stayed in is a traditional cave house with stunning views. It was completely remodeled from the inside (with the architecture and surrounding kept intact to maintain the original beauty of the area) to include an indoor jacuzzi, bedroom, and beautiful bathroom (with rain shower). The villa is steps away from shopping, wonderful restaurants, ATM's, supermarket's etc., so you never have to go far to get what you need. Furthermore, Louanna gave us an orientation the first day we were there so we would know where to go to eat and what excursions to take. She also provided us with a cell phone to call her at any time and was always available when we needed to ask her anything. Lastly...she found out we loved cheesecake and made us one on our last day there - that says a lot about her wonderful spirit. Louanna has done a lot of work to decorate the villa to maintain its old world charm with all of todays amenities. I believe that everyone must visit this place once in their lives...it is a hidden gem.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the view from the terraces of MyBlue in Santorini are worth a million! We truly had an amazing experience at MyBlue. Our trip to the 'Dream Blue' house was without a doubt the best vacation we have ever had! This is the best private house you will find in Santorini for the price. It is truly 6 star quality at a 3 star price! I have never stayed at a private home for a holiday like this one, particularly one that comes with top hotel service quality.

You will know you are in for a good experience starting with the first email you receive back from Louanna, the owner of MyBlue. Louanna is the nicest and most sincere person you will ever meet, and she will take care of you from that first email until you are on the plane returning home. Louanna goes out of her way to accommodate every possible need you will have. She meets you at the house on arrival and provides a personal 'orientation' to both the home and the island, giving many excellent recommendations. She'll arrange excursions, rental cars, dinner reservations, etc. She even provides a free prepaid mobile phone and a stocked refrigerator on arrival with many beverages as well as basic foods (eggs, bread, butter, fruits, etc). At one point, we had some issues with a bank card. Louanna offered to bring us some of her money as a temporary fix! How often will you find that?

Each day Eugenia (the maid) comes and provides basic cleaning, bed service and fresh towels, etc. She will wash and dry any clothes you needed laundered, and also irons! This is included in the daily rental rate. Albert (also known as Hercules because he transports your luggage up/down the cliffside on arrival/departure) comes every day and waters the plants and maintains your private hot tub outside.

Overall, we had the most amazing and relaxing week we could ever imagine. The location in Oia could not be better and is within minutes of all the restaurants, shops, markets, etc the town has to offer. You will have magical views from your private patio, a private hot tub, fantastic accommodations, and 6 star service. There is nothing missing from this place. Everything you can want and more is at your fingertips!

Do not miss out on MyBlue. We are so happy we found it and will without a doubt be back very soon.

We stayed at Island Blue for three days in mid-April. This was our first trip to Santorini and it far exceeded our expectations. First and foremost, the view from Island Blue is breathtaking. It's even better than every postcard you've ever seen of the island... blue church domes, white walls, amazing water views. Every time we walked out the front door or rounded the corner on the walk back to the villa, we stopped because we couldn't believe it was that really that beautiful.
Beyond the view, Island View is a cozy and romantic villa. The owner, Louanna, thought about every detail. There are special touches that make you feel like you're at home combined with the feel of a high-end hotel. From the bath products to the personal mobile phone to the fresh flowers, Louanna took great care of us. Although she wasn't able to greet us in person, within minutes of our arrival, she rang us to make sure we were settling in and offered to help make plans for our stay... from restaurant recommendations/reservations to suggestions on island highlights and "must do's." This highest level of service made our stay that much more memorable and special.
We had phenomenal meals while in Oia. We had lunch at Demetri's Tavern (at Ammoudi Bay) and dinner at Ambrosia & Nectar and at Candouni. These dining experiences are not to be missed. Joy at Demetri's had an infectious passion for the island. Panos, the owner of Candouni, made our dinner one of the highlights of our entire trip.
In my opinion, if you have the chance to stay at one of Louanna's properties, you must do it. While we were 4 friends trying to fit into Island Blue, we were able to fit everyone comfortably. But it's probably best suited for a couple. This really is a magical and special place... truly heaven on earth!

My boyfriend and I stayed in dream blue for 5 nights at the very end of September- it was fantastic! Oia is beautiful and we were very spoilt with the weather, location and so many restaurants very close by. The cave house is beautiful and Louanna has thought of everything. She offered an amazing service and whatever you wanted she would do her best to organise. She was always on hand (on the other end of the phone) regardless what you question was and any time day or night. The view is stunning and we hardly left the house or the 2terraces for the whole of our stay. The outdoor Jacuzzi was a real treat and we spent every evening sipping wine and relaxing under the stars. The kitchen was fully equipped and stocked with essentials which are always a nice touch.

We had a superb and very memorable stay. I will definitely be recommending it to friends and family-although we don't want too many people knowing about it because it needs to be kept special.

The only suggestion I would make and really not that necessary would be nice to have a couple of sun beds to lie on out on the terraces. We spent most of our time relaxing on the cushion pads on the lower terrace, often lying on the floor.

This is a very beautiful place to stay and we would love to go back again one day. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

If one could paint what one imagines the Mediterranean area embodies one would paint Santorini. Add to this the extraordinary hospitality of Louanna, the owner of this divine cave house and you are ready to experience the apotheosis of what I can now call "Greekness". Her welcome to this blue and white wonder, the fresh flowers on the table, the bottle of wine from the Santorini vineyards, her helpful staff, the mystical view, and our lifeline in the form of a mobile phone gave us everything we needed and a whole lot more. We loved coming back to our "home" after a day swimming and exploring. Living with beauty truly lifts the spirit!

The best you can expect...Seriously...Its a traditional blue and white Greek cave house authentic and yet modern...so very very comfortable. We thought it was extremely luxurious...we had a private jacuzzi inside with heated water and beautiful colorful lights...The bed is extremely comfortable. The view is breathtaking...Its out of a postcard...it really is in one of the most coveted spots in Oia. Louanna is the perfect hostess...anyone staying there pls take her advice on where to go and where to eat...She suggested some restaurants for us for authentic Greek food and I have never tasted better Greek food and for a reasonable price. You can tell her what you like and acc Louanna will suggest an itenary for you...She really pampered us. She had arranged for a porter to carry our luggage even though we arrived and left at odd hours...got us a good deal on car hire. Its like living in your own Greek house...very private..and you can cook your own breakfast in a cute small kitchen so no need to wake up at a certain hour:)... It was a wonderful experience for us and made our holiday really special...
