“Cavern House Anthea”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A well appointed villa, sleeping up to six, in spacious surroundings with two bathrooms. Sarah is very welcoming and can meet you however you choose to travel there. A welcome pack was gratefully received, and one got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. Well recommended.

“Spectacular Santorini”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Great place to chill away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist traps. Great location on the hillside with fantastic views over the island with a nice private courtyard complete with barbecue and friendly cats. The house is brilliantly well equipped, good size rooms all with a/c. Two important local attractions are metaxi mas which is a fantastic little restaurant just a couple of hundred yards down the hill (5/5 for food, atmosphere and value) and santos wines 2-3 minutes drive away where the sunset is spectacular and with few crowds (and the wine is superb too). Sarah couldnt have been more helpful from meeting us off the boat to explaining about the best places to visit to fixing computer problems. Brilliant place and we would definitely stay here on our next visit to santorini.

“Like home away from home!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

It is ideally located at the centre of the island making it very easy to travel to all the attractions both north and south of the island.
The house was lovely, clean and had everything we would need for our week stay there including some first day food and drink essentials so we didn't have to go out to the shops immediately.
The views from the terrace are lovely and you can see the sunrise from there as well.
Sarah is a great host. She had thought of every detail, recommended lots of lovely restaurants and places to visit. Whilst on the island, the power station caught fire and we were without power for 2 days. Sarah bought all the candles, paraffin lamps, camping gas and had it ready for us as soon as she heard the news! We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend staying at cavern house anthea.

“Perfect Villa on picturesque island”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This villa is absolutely perfect - and Sarah (property manager and owner) makes your stay here amazing. The property itself was clean, modern and just stunning. It was the perfect place to come home to after a day out. The view from the pool was breathtaking. For us though, what made all the difference was Sarah. Knowing she was there to help us book tours, restaurants and to answer any questions we had was PERFECT. Thank you Sarah. You were fantastic. We would recommend this villa to anyone heading to Santorini. Honestly, we could not thank you enough. From helping us with our luggage to booking our hire vehicle and quads, you were so helpful. If you are looking for a peaceful, beautiful location with a FANTASTIC taverna at your doorstep, look no further. You have found the most perfect place in Cavern house Anthea. Thanks again Sarah

“Relaxing, well-equiped traditional hideaway.”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon for 7 days in May. We found Sarah to be a great host as she met us at the airport and took us straight to the property. She organised a car for us and also ran through local and island attractions.

We had a great time here and here with the following being some of our highlights;
1. beautiful bbq courtyard area parfect for a lovely evening meal.
2. kitchen spacious, with a big fridge, good washing machine and fully stocked with everything you would need.
3. we were left some welcome gifts which were lovely and put us in a great mood.
4. interesting but very comfortable bath and the whole place clean and tidy.
5. comfy sofas for watching a massive range of dvd's (supplied) in case its raining one day.

a few points to mention though;

1. there is only one restaurant in walking distance. This restaurant however is AMAZING, but we ate there twice and would have been nice for another option without driving. (not really a big deal).
2. We feel the the standard of the property is very high but the beds let it down. we found them a bit too hard or short (normal double bed size). We tried sleeping in all three. I think the master would become next level if there was a queen size bed in there. Again this is personal preference and im sure many people would be perfectly happy with the beds. this was literally the only drawback.

The final point is you definitely need a car. It does say that, and it was easy to get around. We like having a car so we could come and go as we please and dont be worried about driving around the island. just take your time and you'll be fine.

oh also there was a picture on the website from the swimming pool of the sun appearing to set , this is rising not setting. so you get a beautiful sun rise, but not a sun set as that is over the otherside of the hill.

The property is really central if you have a car and so like i say easy to get around. Traditional and lovely and the owners are helpful, efficient and made our stay great.

Thanks

“A delightfull, contempory santorini village house!!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My girlfriend and i stayed at this cavern house in exo-gonia, we had a great time, the property is a traditional cave type house built into the hillside, lovely decor and well presented in every way! It is recommended to have a hire car and we would definately say the same as the bus service, though only a 100m to the bus stop, it can be too hot to wait around for it to turn up! Plenty of reasonable car rentals on the island anyway! A must visit is the restaurant just below the house, Metaxima i think it's called! The hosts, Eddy (a Robbie Savage lookalike) and his wife, Sarah, were so helpfull, they made us feel so much at home!! We are sure you wiould enjoy a stay in this lovely house on this spectacular island!!!!

“Superb !!!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Wow what a fantastic holiday. After being greeted by Eddie and Sarah ( the owners )at the airport we were transferred to Cave house Anthea . A fantastic welcome pack awaited us with all the essentials ( bread ,milk, cheese ,ham etc...) . The accommodation blew us away and was very well thought out with everything we could need . The views which greeted us from the terrace will take your breath away and many an afternoon was spent with a glass of wine relaxing on the terrace and in the plunge pool. The owners were very knowledgeable about the island advising us on the fantastic restaurants , beaches and things to do .
We would defiantly book again and we are already planning a return trip to Cave House Anthea.
