I had the most amazing stay at Raki Cave!! Foti and Ian are great people who made my stay wonderful! From providing information on transport, showing me around when I first arrived to bringing fresh towels every day, it was all fantastic and so appreciated! The cave is so unique and by far one of the best Airbnb's I have stayed at. Staying here made my time in Santorini so memorable. Highly recommended!

The host is very nice and warmhearted by showing us around the center of town and recommending some sites worth seeing. The place is clean and comfortable, and is not far from the center of town by walking distance. There is nothing to complain about this stay.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Santorini look no further! This unique and stylish cave house has everything you need. Not only were the hosts gracious, but they went the extra mile to take us to town which was a short walk away into the heart of Fira. The cave house was clean and spacious and also included a garden space as well as a rooftop lounge. We got to enjoy a beautiful sunrise every morning! After just a few days at raki cave we didn't want to leave. We definitely be returning to raki cave if ever back in santorini!!!

Ian & his friend were very generous & friendly hosts! Their place was beautiful, super clean & exactly as pictured. We would stay there again. Even though it seems confusing at first with all twists and turns, it’s easy to navigate & they were helpful by walking us to town & pointing out places for us to eat & drink. They let us leave our bags with them after checking out & arranged a ride to the ferry as well. They made everything easy. Thank you both so much for everything!

A truly wonderful place to stay. The cave is impressive and newly renovated. The location is very good as well, only a short walk into Thira. The guys were both lovely and were helpful organising transfers to and from the cave. Make sure to ask them for their restaurant recommendations!

We absolutely LOVED out stay in Raki Cave. The photos do not do the home justice. It was gorgeous. The attention to detail is great. Love the big doors! The location was fantastic, just a short walk from the main square. Ian was an amazing host. I can't imagine how he could have been any better. We got into Santorini very early (8:30am). Ian set up our transfer from the airport and was waiting at the home to greet us when we arrived. We were able to leave our luggage in his home since we were in 6 hours before the technical check in time. Ian walked us around the main square in Fira and gave us advice on some of the best restaurants and general advice on the island. It was immensely helpful. And as soon as the the unit was turned over for us they let us know (we were able to officially to get into the unit 3 hours early!). Ian was very timely in his responses to my questions (such as where to park our ATV etc). He also set up our transfer to the airport at the end of the trip and his partner was there to bid us farewell in the morning (around 7AM!) and get us into the shuttle. We had an amazing time in Santorini and it was made all the better by our stay in this wonderful home. Next time we are in Santorini we will plan on staying in Raki Cave.
