  • We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Maggie's apartment! It was much bigger than we even thought from the pictures. Everything was perfect and you can tell that Maggie really cares that her guests have the best experience. She went above and beyond to provide little things that you may have forgotten to pack like bandages or shampoo. The decor in the apartment is beautiful and really helped us to feel like we had a true home in Athens. The apartment is in a perfect location to see all the important ancient sites and within walking distance of countless great restaurants. This was among our best experiences through Airbnb!

  • Our stay at Maggie's place was wonderful. It was just what we pictured. Maggie provides everything you would need and more. Our luggage had been lost and she even took the number and called for us to make sure we would get it in time as well as reschedule our dinner reservation. She provided us with such helpful tips and recommendations when we arrived. The apartment was extremely clean and stocked with everything you would have at home, even homemade cookies. We expected to be close to everything we wanted, but didn't expect to be as close as we were. We literally walked out of the door and were right near the metro, Plaka, Acropolis and more! We highly recommend staying here and would love to come back some day to stay.

  • If you are staying in Athens, you MUST stay here! We had such a great stay at Maggie's, I barely know where to begin.

    The apartment is absolutely lovely- modern and well equipped, but you can still see beautiful traditional elements, like the gorgeous marbel floor. Maggie has thought of every small detail to make your visit to Athens the best it can be.. maps, guidebooks, pens, mobile phone- and Maggie's own guide to the neighbourhood, which was so useful. The bed was so comfy, and we slept so well here. The location cannot be surpassed, right on the doorstep is the Acropolis, Plaka, and much more. The metro station is just up the road, which made our journey to Piraeus very simple. Plenty of grocery stores, ATMs and all practical things very close.

    But the best thing is Maggie herself- she is a beautiful soul. She is so warm and friendly, and made everything so easy and lovely for us.
    I've visited Athens before, and have stayed in many hotels- But Maggie's place is by far the best place I've stayed while in Athens.
    I highly recommend stayig here!

  • What can I say about this wonderful apartment and its host that hasn't already been said.
    The apartment is wonderful, the location excellent, the host is one in a million.
    We used Maggie's place three times in our trip to Greece and each time it felt like we were coming back to our own home. The proximity to great food and wonderful attractions makes it an experience that can only be positive.

    Maggie's welcome was the best start to 3 great weeks in Greece. The people that we met in our time were so friendly, genuine and helpful and Maggie is tops in all of these.

    The reviews and words do not do justice to this wonderful apartment and Maggie. The only way is to experience it for yourselves. You will not be disappointed. I will spread the word about "Maggies Place" and we will be back.

    Regards

  • Maggie's apartment was superb! It was well located, exceptionally clean and very well appointed, and she left generous supplies of necessities. In addition, Maggie has put together a compendium of tourist information which includes recommended eating places.
    It was a delight to return "home" each night to all its comforts. It made our stay in Athens so pleasant. Thanks Maggie

  • Maggie was a wonderful host who explained all we needed to know about the area, and made sure we were comfortable in her apartment. We would not hesitate in recommeding this wonderful property

  • We loved Maggie's apartment and really felt like we were guests in someone's home. In fact more like we were at our own holiday home in Athens as there was everything provided we could possibly want and having a base to relax in such a warm atmosphere so close to the city centre was an absolute delight. Maggie was so helpful both before we arrived and with contact on arrival and during our stay. We had privacy but knew she was there to help if needed at all. We will certainly be recommending "Elegance under the Acropolis" to friends and family and I guess the only hint is you need to be able to plan ahead to book the dates you want as I am sure other guests who stay here feel exactly the same. Thank you so much Maggie for making our stay in Athens so memorable. We found the local markets, bakery, restaurants, public transport and even a yoga class for me!

  • Maggie's place is awesome! We loved staying in this beautiful apartment. The location for downtown Athens is ideal. Lovely architecture of first floor flat. Maggie's husband was waiting for us with keys, instructions and beverages. Very welcoming and accommodating. If you need a place in Athens---stay with Maggie!

  • Appartement très bien situé, bien aménagé, décoré avec goût et tout équipé, nous avons adoré. Notre hôte a pensé à tout, si vous avez oublié les cotons tiges ce n’est pas grave vous en trouverez à votre disposition, si vous avez une petite faim et bien vous trouverez des petites friandises dans la cuisine, y compris la confiture maison. Notre hôte - critique gastronomique - était charmante, très attentionnée et pleines de ressources. Vraiment vous ne serez pas déçus.

  • My partner and I had 4 nights in Maggie's beautiful apartment. Maggie was lovely and extremely helpful. Her wonderful little guide book of things to do and restaurants proved invaluable, with all of her recommendations turning out to be great choices. Maggie even went out of her way to organise a taxi for the port for us so we wouldn't miss our ferry to our next stop, which was extremely lovely of her. The apartment could not have been in a better spot. We feel the location was what really made our stay. Everything was in close walking district and we felt completely safe all the time. The apartment itself had everything you could want and was an absolute delight to come home to after a big day out sightseeing. I would recommend Maggie's place to everyone!

About
I am Greek/Italian with two children spending lots of time between my two countries. I am a restaurant critic and therefore I like cooking, gardening, sailing around the islands and reading lots of books. Most of all I love hosting people, make them feel at home even if far away from their homes.
