“Lucky Homes - very good but could do a little better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2010

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.

Our stay was amazingly comfortable, beautiful & relaxing at these wonderful newly renovated traditional houses situated in the beautiful village of Oia. A definite value for money! Our house was newly furnished with a touch of history, air-condition & TV, we had a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room & two spacious bathrooms. We had our private balcony overlooking the volcano. We had a marvellous time and will definitely be returning soon again. Thank you so much Lycky Homes.

We stayed in 'home i' in the beggining of May and were absolutely in love with the place!
The weather was wonderful and the accomodation was exactly what we needed. It was like living in our own house, comfortable and also enjoying the organised hospitality and pampering we wanted. We are definetly coming back soon with our new baby!!!

There were 4 of us, 3 adults and 1 teen. We decided on this place because of other reviews and the photos on their website. The location of the house is great, very convenient. You're basically at the tip of Oia so the view is beautiful. The common area is as pictured on their website, spacious and clean. It was nice to be able to sit outside and take in the view, although during our stay it was a bit on the cold side to do that for too long. We stayed at the home with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is a bedroom downstairs next to the common area. The kitchen and one of the bathrooms is also downstairs. Upstairs there is the second bedroom and bathroom. The bathrooms are very crammed and you have the feeling of showering in a cave. The doorways are very low and it's easy to hit one's head if not careful. The concrete stairway is narrow, I wouldn't recommend bringing young children here as that could be a danger. The internet access had just been installed but not up and working, but we were the first rental of the season so that will probably change. All in all it is a good place for the price, but if we had to do it over, we'd probably opt for a hotel instead as the concrete kitchen and bathrooms were a bit depressing.

We stayed at the private hideaway studio at lucky homes last august and I have to say, it was the best choice. It was an absolute luxury, during peak season, to be able to choose between busy and quiet. It was the best of both worlds as we could venture out when we wanted the buzz but had the luxury of a tranquil and romantic retreat when we chose to. The view was breathtaking, soothing to the eyes and soul. The staff were superhelpful and discreet. I would definitely return again and again.

The accommodations at Lucky Homes were great and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something special...!!! One of the most important aspects of our experience was the scenery, the beautiful balconies, the amazing view. The service was excellent and we totally suggest Lucky Homes for accomodation in Santorini.
For sure we will visit Lucky Homes again!
