The house is very beautiful. It's about 15 minute walk to the local bus station in Messaria which is convenient to hop on a bus to towns in Santorini. The bus is literally 5-10 minutes to almost all the locations. The house was very clean. Irini was attentive and would check on us daily to make sure we needed anything. She scheduled our transport from the port, which I recommend if you don't have your own transportation.

Irini, Kyriakos and Ro welcomed us to their wonderful house. The place was very clean, with an amazing terrace to sit and relax. The village of Vothonas is conveniently located close to Fira, Akrotiri, Kamari and Pyrgos and just a 30-minute drive to Oia. We would definitely stay again at Irini's during our next visit to the the island of Santorini

Irini's appartement is well located into the traditional village of Vothonas. Using the bus system you can get to any destination on Santorini quite easily.

Overall really great place! Quiet area and Irini and her husband made everything so easy for us! From renting quads to getting us booked on a great catamaran they were amazing hosts! The room Could use a fan or something because it was definitely alittle hot at times.

If I were to make any recommendation for someone planning to stay with Irini, it would be to rent a motorbike or an ATV. While Irini's place is fairly remote in the way of being walking distance to places, with the freedom that an ATV will give you, it will increase your enjoyment a hundredfold. Irini is excellent at arranging stuff like that, and an excellent communicator in general. She arranged transportation for us from the ferry port to her house, and when we asked for an ATV, she had it there within an hour. She is also excellent at giving directions and recommendations for places to visit and ways to travel. On our way to Oia, she recommended we take the beachside road on our way there and the mountain road on our way back, which resulted in a round trip of constantly breathtaking views. The place itself was beautiful (exactly what it looked like in the pictures - they're not exaggerated!) and there were many places to sit outside and enjoy the day. Irini has two lovely, friendly cats (they came and cuddled with me for hours on end) and a dog. In the village there sits a church, and the ringing of its bells is a pleasant sound to hear while relaxing in the sun or in the cave house. The cave house itself was spacious, clean and pleasantly cool. It didn't even need air conditioning because of the natural features of a cave house. I highly recommend staying with Irini, especially if you want to get away from the tourist trap filled cities and have a nice, homey private paradise.

Irini is super nice and provided us a home made dessert wine upon our arrival. Her place is a nice local neighborhood and better to rent a car/have a car for east commute.

Irini's Cave house is located in the Vothanos village. It was a beautiful location and a great cave-house experience. However, it is a bit far from the main town of Fira. It takes about a 10 minute drive there but there are hardly any cab services that run. The walk from the house to the main street is about 25 minutes. There is a bus that runs there to Fira. The house was great however the Wi-Fi service kept running down and there were many times my friends and I did not have service in the house or in the location nearby. Irini was very accomodating to us. She brought us new towels and laundry detergent. She helped us book cab services and transfers from the airport. Overall, it was a great experience.
