If you are looking for the best and most unique Airbnb in Santorini, look no further, as this list has some of the most unique Airbnbs you can rent on the island of Santorini.

So… Airbnb has changed dramatically the way we travel and the way we plan for our holidays over the last years.

Even though, it’s still not that popular in Greece, you can find some amazing Airbnb places to stay in Santorini that won’t break your bank account…!

Where to Stay in Santorini
Best Hotels in Santorini
Best Beach Hotels in Santorini
Best Hotels in Paros

However, after speaking to many hotels hotels owners in Greece and in Santorini in particular I figured out that most of the hotels, villas and apartments owners in Santorini (and in Greece to be honest) are using both Airbnb and Booking.com.


  • Most Airbnb’s in Santorini are also listed in Booking.com and will probably cost you less because Booking.com doesn’t charge you any additional fees and you don’t have to wait for confirmation by the host. Everything is instantly bookable.

  • Famous dramatic volcano views but no beach (and more expensive): Fira, Oia, Firostefani, Imerovigli

  • You’d better: rent a car, scooter or an ATV in Santorini as buses can be unreliable and it also gives you more flexibility with times (best site to rent a car in Santorini: RentalCars)

Keep reading…

Booking.com is the website with the most available rooms and Private Villas in Athens, Santorini , Mykonos & Crete (more than Airbnb!)

Ferryhopper is the best website to book your ferry tickets or check the timetables for Santorini, Mykonos , Crete & all greek islands

Get Your Guide has the best and largest variety of Tours in Athens and the greek islands (Santorini, Mykonos, Crete etc)

Rentalcars is the easiest way to rent a car or a quad for Greece with thousands of available options

Expedia has all the available flights to and from the greek islands

I picked up some of the most amazing (and on the budget side) Airbnb’s of the island that hopefully will help you make a safe choice.

So…here they are:

Villa Anita Cliff Suite (Imerovigli)

Just imagine waking up to this amazing view and cute little balcony… This is actually a really traditional Santorini island house that has been renovated by the owners and it now looks fantastic. Book it here

Santorini Hara’s Houses  (Imerovigli)

Amazing cute little traditional greek island house built on the rock! Book it here

Elkaza Villa  (Fira)

This must be the ultimate lovenest… It’s located at a walking distance to the capital of the island Fira but in a very quiet and seclusive area. Book it here

 Theoni Apartment   (Perissa Beach)

If (for some very strange reason) amazing views is not your thing and you just want to be literally on the beach, then this is an amazing option. The apartment is literally 10m from the beach! Book it here

The small Architect’s Villa  (Pyrgos village)

This is one of the most unique and super stylish Airbnb’s of the island at one of the most amazing locations of the island.  Book it here

Ramni Yellow Suite  (Koloumpos beach / Oia)

So…you get a private beach. And a pool. And an amazing traditional house. Close to Oia. For this price??Seriously??  Book it here

Old Vourvoulos House  (Vourvoulos)

An amazing cute little house that was recently renovated and is now fully equiped and super elegant and stylish. The awesome stone patio is a plus too!   Book it here

Kalipso Beach House  (Kamari)

A really cute and quiet place at a 2 mins walk from the famous Kamari beach and all the restaurants and shops , just below the big cliff of Kamari.   Book it here

Casa Galazia  (Pyrgos)

Pyrgos village is one of our favourites places on the island and this super cute house has amazing views and even a bathroom scarved on the rock!  Book it here

Finikia Cave House  (Oia)

You cannot get more traditional greek santorini style than this one! And you also get the typical amazing views from…your own personal outdoor jacuzzi!  Book it here

Maison Faros (Oia)

If this cave house in Oia with its private balcony overlooking the Aegean sea is not enough for you, then there is seriously something wrong with you… 🙂  Book it here

Mega Cave House (Megalochori)

Megalochori is one of the most picturesque and less touristic villages of the island but it’s full of houses like this one carved on the rocks, creating an amazing architectural complex. We really loved the bathroom and the terrace on this one!  Book it here

Caveland (Karterados)

This is a traditional cave house in a “labyrinth” of cave houses at a former winery! Wow!  Book it here

Exo Gonia Studio (Exo Gonia village)

Really new and stylish studio at a very quiet and unique location. Book it here

Argithea Studio (Oia)

You get your private balcony overlooking the Aegean sea. In your own cave house. What else do you want? 🙂  Book it here


There are hundreds more Aibnb places to stay in Santorini and there are even new ones coming up every year as the platform becomes more mainstream for the locals.

All the above are just some of my picks that won’t break your bank account but will offer you an amazing and unique accommodation on the island. If Airbnb is not your thing then you can check out some amazing Hotels or even some amazing private villas in Santorini.

There is one thing for sure though: every Airbnb owner will treat you like a member of your family and they make sure you’ll have an amazing time! Greeks are famous for their hospitality and Airbnb owners are no exception to that!
