This spacious, unparalleled cave house, hanging on the cliffs of the caldera in the center of Oia, is part of a traditional complex of cave houses, owned & renovated by a family of architects.
“Words can not describe how special Laskarina made us feel for our anniversary. From start to finish she has been the greatest host we could ever ask for on our 5th year anniversary. Her place is phenomenal and location is exquisite. She went above and beyond to make our stay the best while we were in Santorini. If you are trying to make a lasting impression or just want to visit Santorini then look no further Laskarina’s place is for you. It was worth the stay. Thank me later.”
Live the myth by staying in a cave that used to be a sailor's domicile back in 1875. Today after a full restoration, it has been turned into a jewel, keeping its traditional cave-curved Aegean island style with its pearl white walls.
“Staying in Lava Caves truly feels like a resort experience. The staff takes care of you in a way I’ve never experienced through Airbnb. If you’d like, the staff will help arrange transportation to/from the port as well as other touristic experiences on the island. They were always close by when we had questions. We did have two power outages during our stay (one of which was a village-wide outage), but the staff was incredibly responsive and got it fixed as quickly as possible. Katerina even called halfway through our trip to chat and ask how we’ve liked everything. The space and the view is amazing- a true caldera view. The balcony is not totally private, but it does face a smaller, more secluded road, so we felt we had enough privacy. The free breakfast provided every morning was fresh and delicious. The staff was even able to accommodate our breakfast delivery time based on our preferences. You do have to walk quite a few stairs to get down to the AirBnb from the main road- we didn’t mind this at all, but someone with disabilities may want to find a home closer to the main road. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Lava Caves and would highly recommend if you’re looking for a luxurious way to enjoy Santorini.”

“Since our stay was impacted by the travel ban and closures being put into place during our stay, I can truly speak to the outstanding nature of our hosts. Our hosts not only provided current up to date info in regards to the Coronavirus closures they also provided reassurance and helped us to navigate these unprecedented ever changing times. Thanks to their help we were still able to enjoy the local food as takeout on our picturesque balcony and tour the beautiful sights. We were still able to enjoy ourselves despite the growing fear and uncertainty related to these bans. The cave house was wonderful in every way! Everything was super clean and the porter did an amazing job with our super early check out that was not originally planned for. I pray for the people of Santorini to stay safe! I hope to return again in better times, and will stay here again for sure!”
