Sea Captains House and Boutique Hotel Santorini

Posted on July 2008 in Cyclades Islands

The Sea Captain’s House, in Greek ‘Kapetanospito’, was built by the Sigouras Sarris family after the Greek War
of Independence from the Turkish rule. It was completed the same year as the signing
of the new Constitution of Greece. A peaceful house, with it’s grand exterior of two terraces – each positioned as the ship’s bow facing directly into the sea. And a courtyard framed by simple, white walls – filled with midnight stars and the afternoon sun.

It has been discreetly restored and the family has introduced all mod cons. This hotel is tucked away in a narrow alley in the heart of Oia. The hotel is now a listed building, so there’s no pool, although there is a blue marble ‘Rain Zone’ mega-shower in which to cool off after sunbathing on one of the two terraces. There are just three large and airy suites, each with spectacular views of Santorini’s volcanic caldera. Breakfasts can last well into the afternoon, and the two restaurants run by the owners – Oia’s CafĂ©-Restaurant and Ambrosia – will provide lunch and dinner on request. The house has its own Jeep and access to a private yacht. It can be booked outright as the ultimate luxury villa on Santorini.

Relax the moment you arrive The Sea Captain’s House provides our guests with services we call – ‘your choice’ our guests can decide when and how to enjoy Our ‘Lazy Breakfast’ – served until late into the day…
