We stayed at this lovely unique villa as a last minute change to our holiday plans (we stayed extra days, and was lucky enough to find this gem to accommodate us)
Mark welcomed us and was really helpful and kind. We could not fault the villa, super clean, equipped with everything we needed and the most amazing views over the neighbouring islands. The sun terrace was the perfect place to relax with the chill out pool, which was nice and private and the shaded garden was a blessing in the midday sun. Would definitely recommend and we plan to return next year. A big thank you to Sarah and Mark
We booked here as a family for a week, was a bit skeptical at first as pictures didn’t give much away but this is such a hidden gem. Absolutely stunning place to stay. So quiet and relaxing (apart from our rowdy annoying next door neighbours) and away from all the hustle and bustle but really not too far away. It’s about 10 minutes from the main towns so perfect distance. We hired a car as there aren’t any paths to walk on and there are a lot of steep winding roads.
The house is lovely and had everything we needed and Mark was an absolute diamond. We had fresh bread and fruit, water and wine when we got here which was perfect and Mark booked us in for a meal in the local restaurant (1 minute walk from house) on our first night. Food was gorgeous.
We can’t praise Mark enough for all the recommendations and the hard work he put into making sure the garden was tidy and the pool was clean everyday.
Was extremely gutted to be leaving but will definitely be back and will be staying here again. Thank you Sarah and Mark for such a wonderful time.
The cave house was a great choice for us. The location is very central to everything on the island and there are some fabulous places to eat within walking distance.
We were met by Mark and given a very good overview of the house and the local attractions. He even got us a short notice reservation for dinner because were starving after a flight delay.
The house had everything we needed and it was very clean. Mark also came around daily to water and clean to pool.
We were there as 3 couples, but it would work well for a family too.
Exo Gonia is a quiet and quintessentially Greek village where you can retreat from the rat race. The ‘Blue house’ is set into the hillside with the most stunning views down to the sea.
When first entering the pretty courtyard with table and chairs and an abundance of pink bourganvillia we felt the stresses and strains of our hectic lives melt away.
At first the Cavern house felt strange but we very very quickly got used to the feeling and embraced cave life and all its benefts....cool rooms, no mosquetoes, peace and quiet.
We cannot thank Panos (property manager) enough for his incredibly kind helpfulness to ensure we had everything we needed from fresh daily bread to meal reservations at Metaxi Mas (local taverna), transfers and visits to the beach. Even a reservation for 17 to the outstanding ‘Rosemary’ restaurant in Pirgos.
We travelled with our adult children for a family Wedding at the Santorini GEM and all agreed how lovely it was to chill on the sun deck upper level and sit in the gorgeous little dip pool.
The kitchen was very well kitted out and we barbequed outside several times, we shared two bathrooms with excellent powerful showers and a super little laundry room with a washing machine.
We were all sad to leave this gorgeous little quirky house and the lovely island of Santorini and genuinely hope to return again.
My thanks also to Sarah for her communication and excellent advice whilst making the booking before we arrived.
I cannot express how wonderful of a time we had in Santorini! Our stay in the cave house in Exo Gonia was special...Panos went over & beyond to making it an unforgettable vacation...we cannot thank you enough! Our favorite restaurant a few steps away "Metaxy Mas" incredible food and wonderful service! Thanks, Sarah for getting back promptly with questions to be answered... again thanks, Panos for making it a magical time!!
