My wife and I arrived in Santorini at the end of June and stayed 3 nights with Chelidonia Villas in the Captain's Suite. We booked our room through AirBnB and worked directly with the host. Not only was the room fantastic with amazing views, but our host was also incredible. His attentiveness and kindness made Chelidonia Villas the best part...

Could not believe how lucky we are to have landed such a beautiful place. Views are spectacular morning, noon, or night. A bit of a maze but you figure it out quickly. No worries. If you forgot something they have it. Food issues? Not a problem either as they serve great Greek foods but can accommodate for almost any condition....

I recently stayed at the Chelidonia Villas during a two week visit to Greece. My friend and I thought that Santorini was a must see due to its iconic architecture and beautiful scenery. What better way to immerse ourselves in the setting than to stay in a cave house in Oia? After an extensive review of Trip Adviser, Rick Steeves...

We have stayed here before, but the owner has done a beautiful remodel, making the bathroom and the kitchenette state of the art. Very private with patio and again the view to take your breath away. Extraordinarily affordable compared to the outrageous prices of some of the other places in Oia, and they all share the same amazing view. We...

I cannot recommend Chelidonia Villas enough - you will not regret staying here! My husband and I stayed in the Captain's Suite as it was our one year anniversary. The service we experienced was incredible - the owners went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves from booking tours to restaurant reservations. The Captain's Suite is...

My wife and I stayed at the Chelidonia Villias during our honeymoon last October, and it was pure magic. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The room was comfortable and had a small patio where we would sit and drink wine and take in the beautiful view. The service was wonderful. The pictures on their website and and the webcam...

I just returned from an off-season (late November) visit to Santorini Greece. My two daughters and I stayed at Chelidonia Villas, and I can't give it a high-enough rating. It was a beautiful "cave house" with the perfect balance of classic and modern (like huge shower with rain shower head) furnishings. The owners were delightful and just the right amount...

TripAdvisors, you steered me right again....what a wonderful little gem in the heart of Oia! Chelidonia Villas was the third stop on our belated Honeymoon trip, and my husband and I loved our stay here. This is a small, family-run villa property set into the cliffside just a few steps down from the heart of Oia. Every villa on the...

The owner of this hotel is an absolute Angel He saved our family vacation to Santorini.

I think the name of our room was Katina or Katrina. It was lovely... spotlessly clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet, charmingly furnished, with small well equipped kitchen. Of course, the porch and the view were magnificent. This is clearly a family run business and they do an excellent job of every aspect. I found the price to be quite reasonable for...
