We would highly recommend staying at Heliophos. It's near Oia but far enough to feel away from the madding crowds. The little village of Finikia is a lovely traditional settlement and has wonderful views over the Agean, albeit not the caldera. It's DIY breakfast and it is lovely to sit outside on your private terrace, but it is a bit limited if you don't want toast or yogurt. Sophia is extremely charming and helpful and makes the stay feel very homely! We would recommend hiring a vehicle to get around from Finikia.
