About this listing

Step in a real life Santorini postcard while staying in this unique traditional cave house that offers an unobstructed and captivating caldera view! You can spot the cave house on most of the photos of Oia, due to its distinctive terracotta colour!

The space

House Nicoletta is a restored traditional cave house located in Oia, close to the Venetian castle. It is set on the quite fringe of the buzz of the main street and it overlooks the caldera and the volcano. Due to its unique location, the house offers a panoramic view of the entire village of Oia and at the same time ensures privacy and tranquillity. It is only a 2 minutes walk away from Oia’s main street where all the restaurants and shops are situated.
House Nicoletta is divided into two separate and fully independent cave houses – House Nicoletta 1 and House Nicoletta 2 – that can be rented separately.
House Nicoletta 1, is part of a two-storey cave house that is partly carved out of the soft volcanic rock. The house is separated into two rooms by a wall with a door and three interior windows, which is the traditional Santorinian style. The room in the back is the bedroom, and the one in the front is the living room suitable to accommodate 2 more persons. This apartment consists in total of the back bedroom, front sitting room that includes a kitchen corner, and a bathroom. The bedroom features a double bed and plenty of storage space. The sitting room has a sofa, table and 2 extra beds. The apartment leads out onto a private courtyard, a perfect spot for admiring the spectacular caldera, volcano and deep blue sea. If needed, upon request, there is also the possibility of the use of an extra bathroom.

The Terracota cave house of Christina was very confortable specially during the hot days we spent here. It's just near the old castle so perfect to see the sunset and the view on the caldera is teriffic.

This airbnb is in the perfect location, close to the shops and restaurants yet in a quiet picturesque location. The view of the caldera from this airbnb is amazing and the home itself is very clean and spacious and fully equipped with everything we needed during our stay in Santorini. My husband loved the expresso machine :)! The bathroom is also spacious! We could not ask for a more hospitable and perfect host! The ladies arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport and take us to the ferry, greeted us near the airbnb upon our arrival and arranged for luggage handlers for our arrival and departure. They were also very quick to respond to any questions we had. They even arranged for laundry service at no charge. I highly recommend this airbnb. I can not wait to go back!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience in Santorini! Nicoletta, Christina & Alexandra were phenomenal hosts and extremely responsive with communication. The home was exactly as advertised and is in a prime location in the gorgeous town of Oia. Would highly recommend this place and can't wait to have an excuse to come back! Thanks again for the hospitality! Tip: Rent an ATV and explore the island! You won't regret it! Cheers, Felipe

Nicoletta's place is the perfect place to stay in Santorini. There are amazing views from your own balcony and everything is so close. Nicoletta and her girls are very helpful giving us great suggestions and organising transfers. Thanks for a great stay!!!

This is such a gorgeous house with amazing and breathtaking views. Alexandra arranged pick up and drop off to the airport and had someone carry our bags to and from the house. It's very close to the main road in Oia (maybe a two minute walk if that?) but at the same time it was secluded so people weren't walking through our area. House is exactly as pictured and was so lovely. There were four of us, so two of us slept on the "couch" beds and they were very comfortable! Definitely recommend and will stay there again next time!

I am from Athens, however I have very close ties with two beautiful Greek islands Santorini and Patmos.

As my father’s family is from Santorini I spent all my summers there. Since I am a licensed tour guide, in 2004 I decided to move to Santorini in order to work there. This was a great chance to start renovating my family’s properties in order to be able to share them with people from all over the world.

In addition, many years ago, my mother visited the island of Patmos, fell in love with it and decided to buy two beautiful pieces of land, including very old farmhouses in ruinous condition, that she slowly renovated. In this way, our family and numerous friends enjoyed many unforgettable Patmos Easters and summers. Nowadays, I am responsible for the good condition of the houses that I rent out and share the beauty and special ambiance of this island with our guests.

I am very lucky since my twin daughters, Alexandra and Christina, having completed their studies abroad in hospitality management and tourism, returned to their roots in order to continue and develop what I started. Genuine hospitality, love and respect for the island, as well as the embracement of the local culture define our core values. Nowadays we all share our time between Santorini, Patmos and Athens, and have the honor and pleasure to share our family’s story and our love for these islands, with visitors from all over the world.
