“Fab holiday”

We stayed at the Blue Canaves cave house between the 2nd and 9th April. The house is amazing- just as the pictures show on the website. We loved the jacuzzi and the Nespresso machine as well as the beautiful bathroom. The wifi was as fast as it is in the UK. Outside the views are wonderful and despite being early April the weather was very good, being sunny and warm everyday. The accommodation is a short walk up the steps to all the shops and tavernas. It is situated close to the centre of Oia but is very quiet and private. At night there was no noise at all from outside. At the start of April Oia is quieter than in the height of the summer but there was more than enough choice for eating out. The cave house is managed by Kostas, who is friendly and professional and simply can't do enough to ensure that his guests are happy. He leaves a phone so guests can contact him at any time if they have any problems or would like him to arrange excursions or car hire. He is really genuine and arranged an excursion through santorini yacht club which is a great afternoon and evening cruise. In the morning Kostas brings the breakfast, in two wicker baskets, and everyday it was better than you might get in a large hotel chain. The freshly squeezed orange juice was lovely and we always had so much that we never went hungry. The accommodation is cleaned very thoroughly everyday - when we returned after a morning walk it was like entering the accommodation for the first time! We would definitely stay there again in the future.

“Absolutely Perfect”

We had the best time on our honeymoon in Oia, Santorini mainly because of the Blue Canaves villa. From the time we arrived we were met with exceptional service by the manager (Kostas). He greeted us at the bus station in Oia and walked us to the villa which is only a short walk from the station/main square. Throughout our stay he was so accommodating and helpful. We were provided with a local mobile phone so we could contact him if we needed anything.
The villa itself is a single villa situated in a quiet area but still overlooking the caldera and a stone's throw away from the magnificent three blue domes of Oia. Tourists aren't allowed to walk through that path making it very private. We spent a lot of our time just lounging in the courtyard enjoying the view, particularly in the mornings when we had our breakfast delivered in lovely baskets.
The villa is self sufficient with a kitchenette and cooking facilities, a Nespresso machine (a must!), tea, a wine/champagne selection, and ice! The entire place was so comfortable and spotless when we were there thanks to the daily cleaner. We also enjoyed the indoor jacuzzi especially at night. Also very importantly there is free wifi and a Samsung tablet to use!
All in all, this was one of the best holidays we've ever had. Santorini is beautiful beyond words, but our stay was made even better by the Blue Canaves and the hospitality provided by Kostas. He also made a lot of good honest recommendations on where to eat/what to do in Santorini, and also arranged for taxi transfer for us to the airport even though it was quite in the last minute. Nothing ever seemed to be a chore for him. We were taken care of so well! We highly recommend the Blue Canaves for that personal touch, the privacy and the view!

“WoW ... Simply Perfect and Private”

From the first moment to the last moment you will feel nothing except perfection.
Fully Privacy for whom want privacy like the honeymooners or the arab muslims ... its perfect
I went with my wife in our honeymoon and I was afraid that the reality is not like the photos ... but when I reached there ... it was the opposite.
Mr. Kostas who recived us and prepare everything to us is an awesome guy .. he made our bed with flowers as a honeymoon gift, gave us a cell phone during our stay, gave us a tablet for internet inside the villa (beside that there is a good speed wi fi) ...
Everything was very nice
Additionally, the location is fantastic and even the little walkway infront of the villa rarely you can see anyone pass because it is a private area
I recommend it for anyone wants a quite romantic private vacation ,,,
