My partner and I stayed in the Perfect Hideaway Studio which is basically the top room above the other two cave houses for a week during May. On a positive note, the location is fantastic - just a stones throw away from all the restaurants and shops. The view from this particular cave house was also excellent - really beautiful un-interupted views of the Caldera and the terrace is very very spacious, especially for just two people. Everything was very clean and as the apartments are pretty new, there isn't a lot of wear and tear however, this being Greece, the accommodation is still quite basic but comfortable enough. Oia is overpriced generally but its a popular tourist spot so they know they can charge a bit more than other area's of Greece. This was okay value for money - approx 160 euros a night.
On a slightly more negative note, the rooms can be a little noisy - there is another cave house directly underneath the Perfect Hideaway and the noise from downstairs carries up through the door into this one depending on who is staying there, you can hear talking and stuff. When we stayed, we heard someone downstairs having a coughing fit and flushing the toilet in the early hours of the morning and we could hear it in our bedroom!
It could just have been an off day, but we also found the owners nice but a little bit disorganised with things such as transfers and we were also told we might have to change rooms for one night because they'd mucked up their bookings - just a teeny bit unprofessional. Oh and the shower didn't work properly. On the whole however, we had a really lovely time and the people in Oia are super friendly. Regarding the slight niggles - these could just be a few teething problems which with a little work, I'm sure Lucky Homes can sort out.
