“Amazing small home in the heart of Oia”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We travel extensively for work, this is an exceptional get away on the island of Santorini with an amazing view from the small patio area, well restored traditional cave house with living room, small kitchen, bedroom and bath with laundry. Bit concerned about visiting in low season but we could not be happier, love the slow pace and lack of crowds. At high season, you will have the best view in town of the sunset. Expect exceptional device and friendly host; if looking for a resort, this is not for you, if looking for a unique once in a life time experience and quiet accommodations in a fabulous location you can not go wrong

Room Tip: It's one small house you'll love it

My parents and I had a 3 days vacations in Oia this winter. Although it is off-peack season, it turns to be an excellent stay in this beautiful island. Dimitri is an extremely friendly and considerate host. He pays attentions to every details of the house - making it a very cozy, relaxing, artistic and homey place. We didn't feel we were at a guest house at all! The location is perfect, we didn't need to compete with the crowds on the castle for the sunset and just enjoyed it right in the small front yard of the house! I have been to the other side of Oia and found it too commercial, the side where Anemi House is located is much more residential, we also e lovely neighbours and this made us feel much less tourists. All in all, this is a wonderful place that you won't regret and it will become part of your good memories for a life time!

Room Tip: We have three adults, the house provides a single bed in the living room and a double bed in the bed...

Like the 19 reviewers before me, I cannot bear to give this cave house anything less than a perfect score. We booked Anemi House but was given another house, Oia's Connection as we had a group of 3 and the latter was supposedly larger and hence more comfortable for the 3 of us.

Oia's Connection was nothing short of amazing and its location is perfect. In summer, it will be the perfect place to catch the sunset. Sadly, we were not able to witness this fine spectacle as we went in winter and it was cloudy for the whole duration of our stay. The cave house was amazing, exactly like what you would imagine from all the postcards you may have seen about Santorini. It has all the modern facilities, a huge TV, wifi and even a private jaccuzi! (That's something which we enjoyed a lot). Imagine sipping wine, watching a most magnificent sunset and soaking in the jacuzzi.

We could also attest to the most wonderful host, Dimitrios, who helped us resolved all our problems and did everything he could to make our stay in Santorini a most memorable one. As public transport was very limited during winter, he arranged for the collection of our ferry tickets and drove us from Oia to Fira early in the morning. In addition, he also drove us to the port at night for our ferry. His dedication to providing the best for his guests really warrant a strong recommendation for us. It will definitely be anemi's house or Oia's Connection the next time I return!

This place is charming! The sunset view from the front porch is great, just as good as the view you see the cruise-ship passengers crowding onto the roof of the nearby fort to take pictures of. The kitchen is small but good enough to comfortably cook basic meals which is all we needed -- there are plenty of local restaurants within a few minutes' walk of the place. The wi-fi is reliable and fast enough for web browsing and email.

The house was pleasantly quiet most of the time, though since we stayed during an off-peak time of year (early November) we did get some construction noise in the morning -- but that's a risk anywhere in Oia since the residents take the departure of the mobs of tourists as an opportunity to fix up the houses. Aside from that, off-peak is a great time to visit since you'll have Oia's streets to yourself pretty often and the daytime temperatures are warm but not hot.

Dimitris was super-helpful during our stay, checking with us every couple days to make sure we had everything we needed as well as helping us rent a car and find our way around the island, and he also gave us some insights into local life that were pretty interesting.

A couple things that didn't really bother us but are worth noting: When you're indoors you'll have no cell coverage, though you can go out on the porch to get a signal. And the bed can only be entered and exited from one side, so if two people are using it, one will need to climb over the other to get up and use the bathroom at night.

We loved to stay in this property during our holidays. The house was nicely decorated by the owner Dimitris with a personal touch and we could find everything needed in the kitchen to prepare our breakfast and dinner when we wanted to stay in. The tv set and the high speed wifi worked very well and we were able to entertain ourselves and do some work online. We enjoyed the silent nights in the cozy and comfortable bedroom after a full day of activities. The house is located in a very nice spot in Oia and offers precious view from the balcony, where it was possible to enjoy a lovely sunset and after walk to one of the many restaurants near the house to have a really nice meal as we did. The cave style of the house made us feel in a different world and we could relax and disconnect ourselves from our busy routine. Above all, Dimitris made our holidays very special by giving precious tips about things to do in the island and helping us to organize our days. It's definitely a house to return for many and many times!
