“Architecturally Superb”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

The Oia Blue Cave house is absolutely amazing. Johan was responsive to all of my emails leading up to our stay in Santorini. He arranged for someone to pick us up from the ferry and also take us to the airport at the end of our trip. He was also available via email while we stayed in his Villa. He also outlined activities and restaurants for us to visit while in Santorini.

The Villa was extremely clean and perfect for two people. I cannot begin to express how architecturally superb this property is. The decor, the lighting, the views...perfect. Speaking of the view, you really cannot beat the view from this villa. Words cannot describe how amazing it was to stay here. Thank you, Johan, for allowing us to rent your property. We were able to return to the States with such great memories and we have already recommended your villa to our family and friends traveling to Greece.

“Nice place. But stay away from Santorini”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Johan is nice and responsive, the cave-house is clean and nice. However: Santorini has become a terrible tourist mill with thousands of cruise ship tourists in the tiny streets you can't walk or breath anymore,there is no romance in such human masses. Everything is overpriced, from mini markets to restaurants. The price-performance ratio is not very good.

The good part from Johan's apartment is that you can see the Fira harbor. If there are more than 1 cruise sips anchored, (there can be u to six or eight), stay inside. The gorgeous views don't make up with cruiseship destruction. Look for islands without cruise ships if you want to experience Greece.

“Immaculate and romantic”
Reviewed January 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

My partner Rohan and I stayed in Villa Blue for 5 nights in August 2014. We loved that the villa was so centrally located to the shops, restaurants and sunset views but was so private and peaceful being located one flight of steps from the street. The villa is perfect for a couple who want privacy and romance. My only disappointment was the during the day, the terrace was very sunny and hot but once the sun started to set, the terrace was perfect for enjoying a bottle of wine. The villa was also immaculately clean and the decor was the perfect mediterranean look. The villa's owner was also very prompt in responding to our inquiries for availability and also in returning our deposit. The owner's wife also met us promptly at the town meeting center upon our arrival to personally walk us to the villa and give us the tour. The entire stay was perfect. We also strongly recommend taking one of the catamaran day tours and a winery tour. Both were great adventures.

“Perfect, stylish, contemporary interior in a stunning setting”
Reviewed December 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had the most perfect stay at Oia Blue. The sleek, pared back interior was calm and elegant. The owners have done such a great job at retaining the original character of the cave house, yet providing the most modern environment. They were so incredibly welcoming when we arrived and during our stay. We only wish we could have stayed much longer! We would definitely return here. After visiting all of Santorini, and staying in other accommodation, we felt this was one of the most beautiful, intimate locations. We were very lucky that, just before the opening of the summer season, we had perfect weather and were able to enjoy Oia in complete quietness. THE most romantic and perfect holiday ever. Unforgettable. Thank you so very much, from New Zealand.

“Cool, quiet and relaxing”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

My husband and I spent 5 very relaxing days in this villa in Sept. It is exactly as the pictures show and we loved our time there. Each afternoon I made up some nibbles in the little kitchen and we had those and a few drinks on the front verandah overlooking the caldera enjoying watching the boats and ships sail by. It was so quiet, calm and relaxing you really couldn't believe there was all this hustle & bustle happening above (especially at sunset time) even though it was only about 30 steps above us!!

We never needed to use the air con even though it was quite hot at the time in Santorini as the villa naturally stays cool. The villa was clean and comfortable but we did have a few difficulties in trying to communicate with the housekeeper when needing a few things as she didn't speak any English but Johan was always available by email to rectify and sort any issues we had promptly, although we never did get the TV to work. Have to add also that this villa could do with some more outdoor cushions as only 2 were allowed to be used outside and if we took any others outside, the housekeeper soon made it known it wasn't allowed and 2 sets of towels inside instead of a single set are definitely needed. Other than that, we would definitely recommend this villa or the adjoining one by the same owner as the location is perfect and if we are ever back in Santorini would def stay there again.

“Perfect honeymoon stay in Oia”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Oia Blue for 3 nights for our honeymoon and it was perfect. The location is so awesome. Its at the heart of Oia but situated just below the cliff, so it was private and quiet. It was so easy for us to walk to many shops and restaurants which were just a few flight of stairs away. The villa was clean, the owner Johan was polite and prompt in replying all my questions. It also has a mini kitchen in which we enjoyed doing a bit of cooking. Overall it was a great stay!

“Wonderful stay in Oia”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We traveled with another couple. One of us stayed in Oia Blue and the other in Oia White. It was perfect. The villas are next door to each other. The location was great. We had privacy and great views and could walk to many restaurants and shops. The owner was responsive and very accommodating. Would highly recommend it and love to go back.
