10 Incredible Santorini Airbnb’s with a View

Airbnb’s in Santorini are plentiful which is great for the budget but difficult to sort through when planning a trip. For us, having that iconic caldera view was an absolute must. Traveling to Santorini was a dream in itself, but what was the point if we didn’t get to wake up to incredible views right outside our window?

While I was researching for our trip, it took forever to compile a list of the best Airbnb’s in Santorini with a view. So once I had it, I knew I needed to share it with others who have the same dream.

2. Oasis in Pyrgos Kallistis

Looking to escape the chaos of Oia? Head to Pyrgos Kallistis, the highest point on the island of Santorini. Its central location makes it the perfect place to base yourself to explore the entire island. The quiet atmosphere of the town mixed with the quintessential Santorini landscape will make all of your Greek island dreams come true.

  • “…The city of Pygros is beautiful and out of the tourist area, but close enough to Fira and Oia that you can easily rent a car or ATV close to the villa and travel all over the island. Our host, Anna, could not have been easier to work with. Fast communication, wonderful service with breakfast served each morning and cleaning services prompt each day…”

3. Peaceful Fira Villa

Who says you can’t get it all on a budget? This Airbnb is located just a short walk away from the town of Fira. It’s quiet but easy to get around to other parts of Santorini.

  • “…Waking up next to the sea was a huge blessing every morning. The pictures do not do this place justice, it is even more beautiful in person. The best place to watch the sunset…”

4. Breathtaking Views on a Budget

Imerovigli is another quiet Santorini village where you won’t find crowds, only incredible views, beautiful white-washed buildings, and iconic blue domes.

5. Unbelievable Value in Oia

This Airbnb is near and dear to my heart because it’s where my husband and I stayed in 2017. Staying in the heart of Oia can be very expensive. If you want a view and are on a budget like us, there are very few options. Pano Meria Studio 3 has the charm, the views, and the location. Not to mention fresh, warm bread will be delivered to your room each day! Check out this post to see more pictures. The Airbnb photos do not do this place justice. Check it out here.

When every single review mentions the view, you know you’ve found an incredible place. This Airbnb is in the heart of Oia right under the famous blue domes. You might have to hike a bit to get to it, but the effort will be rewarded when you wake up to the most beautiful views you’ve only seen in the movies. Check it out here.

7. Traditional Oia Cave Villa

Another gem in the heart of Oia. Have you ever envisioned yourself staying in a traditional cave home in Santorini? This is your chance!

Review highlights

  • “…A few minutes walking from the Main Street and the typical sunset view, but out of the way so it is still peaceful and quiet…”
  • “…The view of the caldera from the patio is seriously breathtaking; we spent so much time out there relaxing. We even brought a lot of our meals back to eat there since it was just as beautiful as many of the restaurant views!…”
  • “…There were quite a few steps to get down to the cave house from the main street in Oia but the person who checked us in helped carry our bags!…”

8. Bright White Caldera Cottage

If you’d prefer your own little Greek cottage with unbeatable views, this Airbnb might be perfect for you. While it seems like the wifi might not be as reliable in this place, you probably won’t miss it. The pictures look like a postcard and I guarantee the views will be better in person (they always are). Check it out here.

Review highlights

  • “…Markos’s place is in the perfect location. The balcony of the room has a view that is like staring at a postcard. Breathtaking. It is just steps away from the main strip and all the shops and restaurants…”
  • “…Markos was a dream host, he was so attentive & very helpful when we arrived. He showed us to our room & explained everything we needed to know. He also organized transport to the airport on our last day for 5am…”

9. Imerovigli Cliffside Villa

I can almost smell the fresh sea air through the stunning photos of this Airbnb. It will be hard to have any bad days when you wake up in this bright white villa each morning with the sunlight pouring through the windows. If you can tear yourself away from the views, you’ll be steps away from the heart of the action of Imerovigli. You won’t have to fight the crowds of Oia, but you’ll still be steps away from wonderful restaurants, adorable island boutiques, and fantastic hiking trails. Check it out here.

Location: Imerovigli

Price: $228 per night + $34 cleaning fee + $93 service fee

Amenities

Review highlights

  • “…The location is one of the best you will find in Imerovigli! Sparking clean place, excellent communication with the host…”
  • “…Omgoodness the VIEW! Right outside the front door Marko’s apartment truly has the most stunning view in all of Santorini. The apartment is situated right in front of Skaros rock and from the balcony you can watch the sunset…”

10. Santorini Splurge Villa

This Airbnb isn’t exactly budget friendly, but I had to throw in a dream villa for fun! Who knows? You may decide you need to treat yo’self after you check out the pictures of this place.

Located in the heart of Oia, you’ll be close to all the action. Although, it might be hard to leave your villa each day. I mean, you’ll have a jacuzzi INSIDE your villa. When you’re not soaking in the jacuzzi, you’ll want to be outside lounging on your private rooftop terrace.

If that isn’t enough, this Airbnb is located in the most famous spot in Oia. When you arrive, you’ll recognize it immediately since the location is photographed regularly.

Since this Airbnb holds 4 people, you could travel with additional guests to bring the cost down. Check it out here.

Price: $630 per night + $244 service fee

  • Kitchenette
  • Breakfast

  • “…The view cannot be compared to anywhere else on the island. It is absolutely breathtaking and is THE view to have in Santorini. You’ll have the best view of the whole island!…”
  • “…The next door neighbor, Rula, is the sweetest older woman. She is 86 years old and has been living in front of the 3 blue domes for many years – she greeted us immediately with fresh bread and flowers from her garden. I went to Santorini hoping for a relaxing vacation, and never expected to have a such an authentic Greek experience…”

Santorini Travel Advice

Cat sitting out on a ledge in Oia Santorini

Santorini is a beautiful place, but just like anywhere in the world, there tricks and things you should know to help make your visit as smooth as possible. For a detailed list, check out my post on 5 things I wish I knew before traveling to Santorini. Here are a few additional things that will help in your planning.

  • As of January 2018, Greece has implemented a tax of 0.50 Euros per night to be paid directly to the Airbnb owner. It’s possible your Airbnb host will ask you to pay this when you arrive. If they do not tell you ahead of time, ask so you’re not stuck trying to find the cash when you arrive.
  • The island of Santorini is not handicap friendly. It is possible to find handicap accommodations, however, getting around the island will be difficult. The island is covered in stairs and you will most likely have to climb many flights during your stay.
  • No matter how luxurious the accommodations, you will not be able to flush toilet paper down any toilet on Santorini. Their sewage system cannot handle anything but organic waste. Most hotels and Airbnb’s will provide a trashcan by the toilet with a lid. In my experience, they will empty it every day. If you’re accustomed to flushing your toilet paper at home, this might be a little uncomfortable at first, but it becomes normal.

Planning a trip to Santorini can be a little overwhelming, but I hope this list helped with narrowing down your accommodations. If you enjoyed this list of Santorini Airbnb’s with a view, let me know if the comments below.
