“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a wonderful property at the start of the pedestrian street in Oia. The pictures really do not do it justice, much more striking in the flesh. Our host looked after us extremely well and took care of our every need. It offers a good location with amazing views. You could not wish for a finer stay in Santorini.

The villa: I stayed at the Deluxe villa and I can say that the place looks better live than in whatever photos can be taken from it. Decoration is modern and clean. Kitchen apparel is pretty good. I have used the espresso machine every day and it makes great coffee. The air conditioning is placed so that the room can be cool but you don’t get any cold wind on your head. The bathroom has LED lights in the shower which give you some sort chromo therapy time. Amazing bathtub. Other than all standard bathroom stuff and towels for showering, the hotel also provides towels for you to take to the beach. The view from it is amazing. I felt like looking at one of those wallpapers you see on the internet from Greece. Unbelievable! The villa is one of the first from the cliff in Oia, so the balcony is pretty private as there are no other balconies that have a view to it.

Services: We were very well treated by Katerina, the general manager. She sent me an email confirming my booking and offered to book a taxi from and to the airport. She made herself available by phone and email and promptly answered all of our requests. Free Wi-Fi. Daily house cleaning and coffee replacements.

Location: at the beginning of Oia. There are tour agencies, bike/car rental close by and it is in the most beautiful location in the island. Very good restaurants also available at a walking distance. If you are going to Athens, I recommend buying souvenirs there, as the variety is bigger and they are cheaper.

Stayed here for 4 days in October, loved the villa - very private, huge area inside of the villa, nice jacuzzi, gorgeous decoration and good location! We had some questions/concerns first about the breakfast, but Katerina - the owner of the place- resolved everything! Very good hospitality and service!
Thanks!
ps. The price of 150e per night seemed little over our budget, but for this price in oia it's a great choice, even considering it was off season...
Recommend it!

Following a hectic week in Istanbul, Turkey my friends and I went to Oia for 5 days of rest and relaxation at Pearl White Villas. Pearl White Villas/Cave House far exceeded our high expectations and the owner, Katerina, made our stay effortless!

Upon arrival from the airport, Katerina met us where the taxi dropped us off and escorted us the short distance to the villa. The villas were spotless and well supplied with items for breakfast along with a bottle of wine and fruit - a very nice touch after traveling most of the day! In addition, the decor of the villas is fabulous. In speaking with Katerina during the reservation process, we knew the villas had recently been renovated but the special touches she added with the mix of modern and antique decor makes the villas even more spectacular!

The villas are located at the beginning of the pedestrian walkway and provide a perfect view of the caldera, especially from the private terrace! The location is perfect - just a few minutes walk to the all of the action but also quiet and removed from the congestion of the daily shoppers. The villas are large compared to staying in a hotel and include awesome showers and tubs! The beds and pillows were very comfortable along with nice linens, towels and amenities. Daily cleaning service was also provided.

Katerina provided us with recommendations on where to go, what to do, restaurants etc. We did almost everything she recommended and felt we got a great overview of Santorini in a short period of time. She assisted us with all of our reservations for taxis, tours, etc. and was always available via text or phone and promptly replied to all of our questions. Her assistance and dedication to ensuring we had a great visit made all the differnece in the world!

Oia is definitely the place to stay on Santorini island and Pearl White Villas is definitely the place to stay in Oia! Katerina, thank you for all of your help and hospitality. You made our visit to Oia a memorable one!

Instead of a hotel this time we select this kind of accommodation, due to the fact that there is no beach to go walking and you will stay out the whole day, so a hotel makes no sense.

The breakfast is included (they bring you the breakfast material), but the fact of having a small kitchen and a fridge gives you the chance to increase your meals as you wish. We rent an scooter and we moved around the island every day, staying in a different beach each day, using the villa just for breakfast and afternoons. It was an amazing pleasure to arrive every afternoon to the wonderful villa, staying on your very private terrace and enjoying the sunset with one of the best views I’ve ever had. As well, the cleaning service is coming daily, so when you arrive to the villa all is perfectly arranged.

The villa itself is wonderful (better than the pictures) and very comfortable. Great beds, by the way! But one of the best things it was the hosting. Katerina was helping us on everything from the distance (to arrange the transfer from the airport till finding the best price for the scooter or car). Once we arrived, her sister Vanessa was our host and as well was fantastic. We saw her almost every single day, and she was giving us recommendations for everything, where to eat, what beach to visit, boat trips, restaurants, etc.. and booking for us if we wanted. As well, her phone was available all day long for anything we needed. In my opinion, that makes the real difference. In a hotel the may treat you very well, but this kind of hosting, so personalize, is what makes the difference; ...and I like it!!!
If they keep maintaining this level of service will be a perfect place to go at OIA.

The location of the villa is fantastic, and compare to other villas around, there are not so many stairs to “climb”.

I really recommend it

Our stay at White Pearl Villa exceeded all our expectations. The location was great, right at the beginning of Oia but away from the direct hussle and bussle. As of many places in Oia you'll have to go down some steps, but our location was closest to the water. We had an absolutely unobstructed view. What I loved about this villa was the privacy. You look out the balcony and unless you look down on your left to see the other villa on the same property, you have nobody else in your view. However once you walk up the steps you're right at the beginning of the oia walkway. A big reason why we chose this villa as well was the fact that it's a cave house. When it's hot outside in the afternoon, the place stays nice and cool. The size of the place was like a junior 1 BR. It has a living room, hot tub, bed tucked next to the window. Wonderful to look out the window and see the amazing view.
Our host Katerina has been excellent. She offered to get us a cab or rent us a car. We chose to take a cab. We also got advice on where to eat. Since right outside is the beginning of oia if you want to take a tour somewhere they can pick u up from the tour company as well.
Breakfast material was provided and enjoying breakfast on the balcony with the view was amazing. There is also room service daily if needed.
Can't wait to go back to Oia, and if so will definately stay here again.

Indulge in the surreal view of the sea sparkling under the glorious Mediterranean sun, the lunar rocks dropping sheer to the sea-filled crater, the cruise ships peacefully floating in the cobalt blue waters, the dazzling white cube-like houses daringly perched on the edge of the steep cliffs, and the dormant volcano standing as a silent sentinel, guarding the secret of the lost Atlantis.
