This lovely Cave House lives up to the expectations created by their photographs and the other reviews. It is rare in Santorini to find accommodation that has two fairly equal bedroom/bath combinations. Most have one great bedroom, whilst the other is just the (hard!!) couches in the living area. This house has two distinct bedroom and bath areas, which are both fantastic. The only question is whether to choose the pink and purple room, or the black, white and red room!
This unit has an upper deck area where the views over the caldera are stunning. The view from the front of the unit is a bit restricted, but the upper terrace makes it all worthwhile.
The heated plunge pool is fantastic, and the view from the kitchen to the pool and out to the caldera is something to wake up for each morning!
We were hosted by Elena, the owner of the unit. She met us where our car dropped us off from the airport and gave us a quick tour of the Cave House and some pointers on where to go and what to see. We asked her to organise a special private island tour and she was able to do that for us. And it was great!
There are a few things that could be improved for the unit. For example, there were robes and slippers provided for the black/red bedroom, but not for the other one. An oversight perhaps, but it needs to be rectified. Although we were not intending to cook in the Villa, there were some utensils and a hot plate. We often had left-overs from our dinners, so a mini-microwave would have been delightful!
There is no coffee-maker, but there is an instant espresso maker. We had to go out for coffee each morning, as it was not very nice. Also, many others have raved about the breakfasts. They were nice, but nothing to rave about. There was a selection of chopped fruit, yogurt, bread or croissant or mini cheese pie.You could also order scrambled eggs and twice we had pancakes delivered, although we had not ordered them!
Anna was our room support. She was delightful and did everything she could to make out stay pleasant and cleaned the room spotlessly every day! I made the bed the first day, and she told me not to do that - it was her job!!! Lovely!
All in all, the Cave Villa is a beautiful place and i would not hesitate to recommend it. Sitting in the warm pool after a day of hiking the myriad hills, dales and steps on the island, with a drink in hand, was a real treat!!!
Arriving at the villa, we were welcomed by our lovely host. The interior areas of the villa were carefully thought, simply amazing and luxurious while the view was breathtaking to say the least!
Relaxing in the pool (which is just as amazing as it looks) and watching the sunset was a moment to cherish forever.
Lastly, having the custom and wonderful breakfast served in our villa by the extra friendly house keeper was the perfect start of the what was one of the best vacation of our lives!
Excellent choice and breathtaking view. Spacious and nice decorated rooms. Great service from host and house keeper. Having our breakfast served in our villa was an amazing experience. The ideal place to relax.
I hope to come back soon!
The view from Ventus Paradiso is simply stunning. Our private terrace and the hot tub are lovely, very peaceful and relaxing. The staff is lovely and friendly, the service is very good. The breakfasts are delicious. Our time in santorini was made so much better because of the experience we had here. The Villa is excellent, very clean and well serviced in a fabulous location. I highly recommend Ventus Paradiso!!!
We spent 4 days at Ventus Paradiso Villa. It was the best vacation ever.
We hope to come back soon.
Thanks for everything Helena!!!
