Sunset Terrace Cave House
This traditional cave house is well protected from the sun and wind. It offers panoramic view to one of the most attractive sunsets in Greece. It is in the heart of Oia. Very close to the center and away from all the hustle and bustle of the main street. The multi level terrace offer a place to enjoy the sun in privacy behind a wall of bougainvillea, a space to enjoy a glass of wine and a book and the perfect place to stretch out on the outdoor bed to view Oia’s magnificent sunset performance each night. The outdoor garden is extremely peaceful and beautiful. The very large terrace overlooks the sunset, the volcano, Old and New Kameni, the island of Thirassia and the church of St Dimitrios.

SUNSET TERRACE, consists of two bedrooms with traditional style built in double beds and a living room with a traditional handmade sofa bed and a skrinio. There is also a separate dining/ kitchen area, which includes a second traditional sofa and a large table with a tray of welcoming drinks. A folding away bed provides a sleeping option for a sixth person. Kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom features a shower.

SUNSET TERRACE has an outdoor hot tub and a private outdoor shower surrounded by bougainvillea trees and flowers!
In case you are more than 6 people and you need more bedrooms and a second bathroom, there is HELIOS nearby, a beautiful cave house with a double bed in the master bedroom, two single beds in the living room, a kitchenette and a large bathroom with shower.

SUNSET TERRACE is recommended for one family or even two groups of friends. It is nice if you want to get away to relax, write and just enjoy the life of Santorini without feeling like a tourist. The house has Wi Fi in all areas and AC although rarely needed as the house gets a nice breeze if you leave the windows open.

Enjoy your stay in one of our Oia cave houses!
Some more info about Sunset Terrace
The house was built into the volcanic ash more than 150 years ago in the traditional way. In Santorini people build their houses partially underground or into the cliffs to be protected from the wind, the cold and the summer sun. At the same time, they used doors and windows for ventilation resulting in an airy feel and the historic Santorini architecture.

The house is now modernized and comfortable, with a full kitchen, air conditioning, cable tv, internet and washer. However, tall men should use caution as they enter the small door frames of the traditional home. A guest’s comment: When someone visits a "Prehistoric Pompeii" as is Santorini, he should contemplate that, centuries ago, people had to adjust their life to the rocks. They used stones, mountains, seas and everything else they could, for the continuity of life after the total devastation caused by the volcanic eruption. It is remarkable that people made this land live again, full of beauty and creation! The charm of this house is at this value, which is over time and place: the power of man to be reborn from his ashes!

The beautiful garden and entrance way to the house is 12 steps down from the main pedestrian walkway of Oia. From the wide terrace you have an unobstructed view of gorgeous sunsets.
You will enjoy the CDs that are in the house, especially the bouzouki music.

The house is located in Oia, one of the most beautiful and desirable spots on the island. Oia is the town known for its beautiful cobblestone paths and staircases leading to a variety of beautiful boutiques and artisan shops, delicious restaurants and many exquisite opportunities for photographs.
The house is easily accessible to everything. For example a market, bus stop, coffee shop and information center are also located nearby. Despite its location to the shopping streets and the sunset viewing points, the house is in a peaceful and quiet area.
