I loved the stay at Veggie Garden. The room was very nice with a balcony with evening sun. The family is super cute and I even got to try the wine they are making. Can warmly recommend this place. The area has many good restaurants.

We had a great stay in Stelios and Maika's house. We spent the first night in the twin room. The room was OK, but pretty small and REALLY noisy. However, we were moved to a double room the next day, and it was wonderful. It is actually two rooms with two beds, one double and one single. It has a small bathroom with shower and all the necessities. We also got to try breakfast and dinner cooked by Maika. Both meals were very generous portions and inexpensive, not to mention delicious authentic Greek food. We loved the eggplants (I would love to get the recipe :)). Both Stelios and Maika are lovely, friendly people. They were very accommodating when we needed to change our reservation several days before our trip. Stelios also explained everything to us very thoroughly and suggested to us places to see and the easiest ways to get there. The neighborhood felt pretty safe. There is a children's park nearby. Also, the metro is very close to Stelios' place, so you're a 15 minute ride from the center. All in all, I highly recommend this listing, but if you have the chance, get the double room :)

It was a wonderfull stay in Veggie Garden. We spent 4 nights there and it was perfect. Stellios and maika were very nice and breakfast (5€) were very good and juge. The location is 5 mn from the metro, and then 15 mn from the center. The place is very quiet and sage. If we return to Athens, we will return to Veggie Garden.

A bit disappointing ! We had a room in the basement and it did not look like the pictures we saw in the ad. When we arrived, we were told that the house does not do breakfast but this was what made us chose this place ! The neighborhood is very residential, there is nothing around and you'll need to take the subway to reach the city center or a taxi to reach the sea. Still, the indication we received at our arrival helped us to reach the place easily and it was very clean and had air-conditioning.

Response from Stelios & Maika:
We are very sorry you did not fully enjoyed our hospitality to the maximum extend. We take pride and satisfaction in doing our best to ensure our guests enjoy their stay with us and their holidays in Athens. The pictures in our website are verified by Airbnb. Nevertheless, due to a last minute damage in the air-conditioning unit of our advertised room, we provided to you the next room which it totally identical (size, layout, facilities, etc) with a bit different decoration. The room was not at the basement and had direct access to the garden. Our breakfasts and meals are totally homemade and fresh cooked by Maika. However, she was away for 4 days, and we don’t want to provide any meal to our guests which is not in accordance to our standards. In such case, a local bakery is always recommended (5 minutes walk) as an alternative, which has an extensive choices of nice stuff! Finally, indeed as described in our profile, we are located in a nice, residential area of Athens 5 minutes walk from the metro station, which is 14 minutes to the centre. We are also located within 5-10 minutes walk from numerous restaurants, bars and pubs. Also, the beach is not only accessible by taxi, you can walk there in 20 minutes or take a 5 minutes bus ride. Obviously, we do not expect our guests to know all these, but with a simple question we would have been able to provide you with advice and directions on the area!

Our stay in the Veggie Garden was absolutely wonderful! Stelios and Maika were wonderful hosts - they provided excellent directions and advice for our time in Athens, picked us up and dropped us off at the Metro station upon arrival and departure, and they made the most excellent meals! Their house is a quick 5 minute walk to the metro and then a 15 minute ride into the center of Athens. We enjoyed taking advantage of breakfast and dinner in their beautiful garden and would highly recommend staying at the veggie garden during your time in Athens!

Veggie Garden is very clean, fully new and very comfortable apartments. I was in business trip at the start of April with my partner, and we will return in Veggie Garden at the end of the April with my family. Stelios & Maika, keep it up!

We are Maika and Stelios, a Greek couple in their 50s who love travelling and hosting. We have recently fully renovated our Athens home introducing a new veggie-patch. Having 2 spare rooms and many years of hosting experience, it seemed like a natural progression to run our home as a B&B. We have been operating as a B&B since 2011 with guests from all over the world.

Maika is a keen home-cook who blends traditional Greek cooking with a modern twist. The seasonal produce from our garden encourages cooking experimentation with outstanding results. Besides the available breakfast and dinner options, many guests get to enjoy tasty complementary treats throughout their stay. More importantly, they get to enjoy the treats under the shade of the trees in our beautiful garden.

We always enjoy meeting new people and being introduced to their culture. As an exchange, we hope to provide a fantastic stay in Athens for all of our guests with good old-style Greek hospitality.
