Reviewed June 5, 2014

It was just like the photos on the website! What a delightful place to stay. The staff couldn't be more helpful!
Could have stayed for ever!
Everything was clean and inviting. The terrace was amazing overlooking the jewel of the Agean sea. A close walk to the restaurants and shops of Oia.
Would definitely recommend.

This is one of the absolute best places I have stayed as a paying guest. One of 3 cavehouses dug into the mountain, and then equipped with top materials and furniture, all sorts of creative little touches, two rooms, lovely bathroom, little kitchen, wonderful terrace for breakfast, sunbathing and sunset gazing.
Essentials for breakfast provided, little supermarket 50 meters away. Total calm and quiet, but the busy town of Oia 10 minutes away. With all its exclusive shops and good restaurants.
And then there is Katerina. Like everyone els who has written about Gabbiano, we fell totally for this lovely blond young thing, who seems to be able to to do everything and think about your needs before you have exoressed them yoyurselves. A week before arrival, she sent us detailed information about how to get there, and came to meet us where the minibus dropped us off. She brought us big glasses of local wine, and in general behaved like the absolute perfect hostess/manager. The lady who cleaned was a real professional too. Bravo, Katerina.and your staff
This is an absolute winner. One of the best places ever.

First class apartment you need to see to believe! Breathtaking views of the caldera and sunsets, the apartments themselves are unique and architectually beautiful. Classy, modern interiors with great size balconies overlooking the water. The apartment is well appointed with everything we needed. Katerina our host was professional, helpful and really friendly. We would recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing accomodation experience. Can't wait to get back!

We loved our stay at Gabbiano apartments! Great service - we were sent arrival information beforehand, and they walked over to pick us up at the bus stop nearby when we arrived by bus from Fira and the port.

Stayed in apartment 1 - and loved the traditional cave style gone modern. All the furnishings and amenities are very up to date. The apartment might be a little smaller than you get the impression of in the photos, but it looks just like the pictures in style and design. The view is unbeatable - possibly one of the best around Oia - as you get the sunset views with Oia in the background.

There is a cobblestone path straight into Oia - and you get there in 10-15 minutes, but there are stores and restaurants all along the way. Buses go to the port, the airport and to the other cities almost every half an hour, so well connected in that way. We also recommend Sigalas Winery - a 25 minutes walk away - they do a pretty good winetasting!

Room Tip: Apartment 1 has the best views - totally unrestricted, and as private as you get in in Oia.

I've been to Santorini with my family last summer..!
And the time that we’ve spent in Gabbiano apartments won’t never be forgotten.
The owner was very kind and I was really thanks to her that she adored my little sister !!
Even we had changed the reservation often, she was kind to us..! Thanks!

The view from balcony was wonderful and the 'white and blue' cave apartments was also fantastic.
It is a little away from the center of Oia so quite and calm. And the market where we could buy something to cook was closed to the apartments. I love it!
If there were swimming pool, it would have been better.. but with the price we were satisfied.
I recommend this apartments to traveler who are planning to go to Santorini!!

The apartments are great and very (very) nicely decorated. Excellent view from the terrace, and great (great) service from Katherina. I think these apartments are a bargain for the location and the quality. Highly recommended.
Ps: I recommend the apartments, but I have very mixed views about Santorini which is like the Disneyland of Greece

Incredible stay and service in the best sunset point of view of Santorini, Oia. It is not in the centre but near. Good room, bed is very confortable. Kitchen and living very nice. The balcony is incredible to have meals or view the sunset over Oia.
