Wow what a marvelously beautiful stay at the Villa! We have no words to describe our experience from the moment we landed until the moment when we left. Santorini is by itself the most beautiful place on earth for sunsets, but what made our stay beyond beautiful, unique and exquisite was due to our host - Antonios. If you're trying decide between places look no further and book this place.
There are many ways Antonios made us feel special, we will list some of the best ones below. But rest yourself assure that every single dollar (or euros shall we say) is worth it. We can assure you that you'll feel like a Greek goddess.
1st: Antonios will be like your cousin or friend who'll pick you up at the airport and drop you off so you don't have to worry about anything because he's only concern was that we enjoyed ourselves and that we didn't get lost as GPS is tricky because a lot of the streets don't have names. It is very small island.
2nd, You have two amazing entrances, we prefer the one you walk thru the sunset rooftop/bar. Once you walk down the amazing stairs you feel like your going into a cave and see an amazing view, you'll then be amazed with the view from the villa. It is brand new place, you'll walk in to to a calm grayish/white interior decoration, beautiful bedroom setting and shower is to die for. One of the best things we love is that this is a place to escape from everything (including tv), however, you'll have a nice stereo system to play your own music which you can enjoy while inside the jacuzzi, the balcony or inside the villa.
3rd: The main reason we chose this place was because the level of privacy you get at the jacuzzi. It is important to know that because of how the calderas are set up (The houses are right on top of each other, hence everyone can see each other), it is difficult to find a place with some privacy on the jacuzzi which will make it difficult to have a honey moon or anniversary (like us) in private, and feel like it is only the two of you and the sunset.
4th: The villa is two levels below a bar/rooftop,so you can order room service style to your jacuzzi. The big plus is that you are their only guest! We highly suggest to order the local/family wine. No worries there is no real noise from upstairs and there's also a nice discount on bar tab as guest of the villa.
5th: What an amazing breakfast! You'll feel again like a Greek goddess. Antonios will ask you the night before to choose a time frame for your breakfast and to pick few things you can personalized, but the rest is on him, so let him indulge you and all you have to do is enjoy everything he offers and brings, including some great local fruits.
6th: Antonios will help you explore the island, the best way is on 4x4s and he will setup the delivery of the quads, plus special pricing. Feel free to explore and do not worry if you get lost, you can cross the entire island in less than 30 minutes.
Lastly look no further and do not book in hotels. Here, all the attention is dedicated to you and only you - you can call him, text him and ask for anything at anytime no matter what it is. We are afraid of visiting other places in the world and not like them because he spoiled us immensely, his service, professionalism, humanity, accommodations and everything will leave you wowed. We must say this is going to be our special occasion place to return. Ratings at this place is infinite!
This property was by far the best property I stayed in while visiting Greece. From the outstanding views to the villa itself. The villa has a very modern chic style to it but also gives you the feel of a typical Greek cave house. It is located on the caldera cliffs and very close to restaurants and bars. We enjoyed the views and the sunsets every night from our hot tub which were amazing! In addition, the PK bar is literally upstairs from the villa and makes some of the most delicious drinks in Santorini. Their service is also phenomenal.
Having worked in luxury hotels for more than a decade I always value great customer service and this place surpasses most 5 star hotels. The level of attention from the hosts is fantastic. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave Antonios is there every step of the way. One morning my girlfriend and I wanted to buy the board game UNO and asked Antonios where we could purchase the game. He showed up to our villa 10 minutes later with a gift bag that had the game UNO inside for us. This really blew us away and has won me as a customer for life.
If you are looking for a nice romantic getaway and want to be in the best spot in Santorini Greece I highly recommend you book this place. My girlfriend and I will most certainly be back in the future.
Nothing - although hooks for towels would be appreciated.
Everything - we were absolutely blown away by the beauty of this place. Please make sure you connect with Antonios (he won't let you forget) prior to arrival, otherwise you will not find the place. I was in Santorini exactly one month ago and thought I knew where it was by looking at the map, but in reality, it would have been impossible to find on my own.
The house is built into the rocks of the caldera and located under a bar (which serves the best mojito we've every tasted anywhere in the world) but is very quiet due to soundproofed doors and windows and we slept well both nights. It is very spacious with a separate bedroom, a sitting area, a lounge area (which has a double bed/day bed), and a spacious outdoor terrace with hot tub, lounge chairs and outdoor eating area.
It is bit of a hike up and down from street level and as such, not recommended for those with mobility issues.
The house is very clean, beds are comfortable, and Antonios made sure that we had everything we needed/wanted, including a beautiful breakfast on the terrace overlooking the volcano. The best part of our stay is the hospitable service offered by the owner and host. His assistance and guidance alone is worth 10/10 and the beautiful house is just the bonus.
This villa is incredible and even better than it looks in the pictures. We did not want to leave, the sunset and views were amazing and the host, Antonios could not do enough for us. He made our stay just perfect.
We can honestly say that of all the very many five star hotels we’ve stayed in across the world, this is up there with the best.
We will definitely be returning!
Let me paint a pretty picture for you.
The best caldera view on the island greets you in the morning as you emerge from your chic and luxurious villa perched on Fira's clifftop location. A sumptuous breakfast awaits on your private balcony, and as you sip your coffee the faint sound of bells can be heard from the donkeys walking along the path a few stories below you. You lift your face to the sky and the warm sun greets your face with a soft kiss on your cheeks. Your let your eyes drift to the shimmering indigo sea and spot a cruise ship off the coast. Your mind is calm, and one thought comes to mind. "Heaven. I've found heaven on earth."
This isn't fiction. It's a true account of our mornings at the cave villa. The view alone will blow your mind, but the sincere hospitality from the most amazing staff in Santorini puts this villa in a class of its own. Antonios, Vas and the rest of the team provided service above and beyond any stay we've ever had. From booking airport and ferry transfers, to recommending restaurants and car rentals, Antonios not only provided the best options, but considered our preferences and the amount of time we had on the island. The accommodations, the breakfast, the service, THAT VIEW, the location! There is something for everyone. If you work hard and want to vacation like a celebrity don't think twice, book a stay with Antonios and live the dream! We will we be back, I guarantee it.
What an amazing place to reflect an amazing island. The cave villa was everything I hoped it would be and more. I had pretty high expectations based on the pictures and I was not disappointed. I was floored with the patio and cave space. It is centrally located in Thira and offers fantastic views of the caldera from Akrotiri to Oia. The villa is located underneath a popular bar and you can access your room through the bar or from a public street. It was really fun to go through the bar because you got to walk through a cave tunnel which opened up to the amazing caldera view. Despite being so close to the bar, the villa was very quiet: noise was not an issue in the slightest. The private hot tub was one of the my favorite features of the villa. It offered full views of the sunset as well as a little privacy from the neighbors. If anything was better than our villa, it was our host. Antonios was very communicative, prompt, and friendly. He arranged our ATV rentals, a sunset dinner on the patio, a wonderful breakfast every morning, and last but not least, my proposal! My now fiancé and our host planned and executed the most perfect proposal all in secret and it was truly a magical experience. Antonios decorated our room with bouquets of flowers, local chocolates, champagne, and even arranged a photographer to take pictures of the moment. He will go above and beyond the duties of any host to make sure your Santorini experience is one you will never forget and will leave you yearning to go back!
We were absolutely amazed when we arrived in the NK Cave house. Firstly Antonios greeted us at the pick up point after we spent a couple of days in Oia before that. He also arranged for transport to take us to Fira.
The apartment is even better than it is in the pictures. The view from terrace is amazing. The terrace itself is huge. At the back of the terrace is a lovely big hot tub, which is great to chill out in when the sun goes down with a few drinks. There was a lovely bottle of bubbly waiting for us inside the apartment. The inside is also very spacious and finished off too a very high standard. There are two beds. One is within the bedroom, which is lovely and has air conditioning. The other is in the main area in the apartment, within a cave-like area. Perfect for relaxing on when it gets to hot outside. The bathroom is also beautiful and the shower is really spacious.
Every morning Antonios brought us breakfast which was lovely. Try the Greek version of scrambled eggs. Really nice! Antonios himself is an absolute gentleman. Always a click of a button away from answering any questions you may have. He also advises on lovely restaurants to eat at. The apartment is cleaned every day too, so it is always spotless. There is a fantastic cocktail bar above the apartment. We got a discount on all our drinks too. Everyone that works there are really nice and even let us take drinks down to the apartment. The walk way down through the cocktail bar is also really cool!
On our last night there, the sunset from the terrace was the best I have ever experienced. One I will always remember. We will most definitely be back in Fira and will stay in the NK Cave house again.
