We loved our stay at Oia Blue! It was in a great location in the heart of Oia. The view was magnificent and provided incredible sunrises every morning. You are just a short walk to incredible shopping, restaurants and more! The house was clean and we didn't have any issues whatsoever. Johan made sure we were taken care and we would stay there again.
Couldn't ask for more from a place to stay, the same for the sister villa nextdoor, White. The views are stunning, the location peaceful, even though the bustling alleys of Oia old town are only a few dozen steps above you (you honestly don't hear any noise whatsoever!). Our pre booked taxi, via Johan, dropped us off 5 minutes walk away and we were met by a very helpful lady. Everything has been thought out nicely, the layout and decor is contemporary and minimalist and fits nicely with the villa location. For what it's worth, I recommend, after a day of pounding the pavements, grab a bottle or two of whatever you drink, and sit and enjoy the early evening views, before getting ready to head out.
The biggest compliment we can pay it... we've thought about being there every day since we got back
The Cave House does not disappoint. Nestled in the mountainside overlooking the beautiful Caldera and beyond. A beautiful veranda is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the views. Inside is a modern immaculately kept mini-home, well equipped Kitchenette - hotplate included and a beautiful circular, open shower off the bedroom. The cement floors were beautiful and cool on the feet. The living room was open as well as cool and comfortable. Would highly recommend trying a Cave House - it's a one of a kind experience.
Note: Johan is a great help, he will answer your questions promptly and help with transfers to and from the airport..

First off, the communication with Johan was excellent and our questions were answered clearly and quickly. We were there for 3 nights.
We were met at the post office by the housekeeper (I can't remember her name), who took the time to show us around a bit and then took us to our lodgings. What a wonderful surprise we had! It was even more beautiful than on pictures - the view from the room was breathtaking. And she (the housekeeper) remained available throughout our stay if we were to have any questions - she also arranged for porters to take our luggage back to our car at the end of our stay.
The room itself was very comfortable and spacious, with clean linens and towels. And the shower!!! OMG, the shower! This in itself was worth its salt :-)
We enjoyed the terrace at night after dinner, with a nice bottle of wine and local pastries (purchased in Thira). It was so quiet and peaceful.
Some people might be turned off by the foot traffic in that area, and we were surprised that despite the hordes of people above, once you get to the room, you can enjoy the terrace quietly, without hearing any of what is going on above.
Ours was a memorable and most romantic experience ever!
Beautiful cave house , gorgeous view and the owner Johan couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommended !
