19th Century Sea Captain's Home Converted into Modern Santorini Cave

Located in the town of Oia, Greece is 1864 – The Sea Captain's House, a luxury hotel that overlooks the gorgeous seaside landscape on Santorini island. The lodging, which was once a 19th-century sea captain's home (as the name suggests), has been converted into several stunning accommodations, including one called the Cave suite. This unit was recently renovated by PATSIOS Architecture, who applied a nearly all-white color scheme to the entire space. This interior design technique creates an open, airy feel, despite its distinct lack of windows.

The Cave suite is designed as an ideal location for two to four guests. Its large space has two bedrooms, dressing areas and bathrooms–each made of white marble, and one also has a deep soaking tub. After relaxing in the bath, visitors can take advantage of the private yard and seaside terrace, basking in the warm Grecian sun.
