The place was very neat and clean. The numerous instructions and house rules everywhere made me feel rather funny and a bit annoyed, too. They seemed to be targeted for guests who have no knowledge at all about how to behave and clean after oneself. Maybe that's necessary.

The place was something one should look forward to while staying at Athens for a leisure trip. The description of the location was quite apt and the location was peaceful and safe. Vaki and Mike had put up all the information needed for one to check out the city and helped us on our trip to make it more knowledgeable.

As hosts, we try to provide best solutions for our guests so they can enjoy everything they need in our place and explore our city.
We have functional properties, all amenities offered. We provide very detailed instructions- each guest who takes a moment to read them and will follow them, shall not face any problems.
We also have plenty of information and suggestions about your destination-Athens. But here we rather encourage independent attitude and will provide the fishing rod not the fish itself for our guests. We will not make your travel plans for you- we show you directions where to find information and from what to choose. We believe that traveling can develop and teach us more when we do such choices ourselves;)
**
As guests, we like other hosts to treat us as we treat our guests. We appreciate basic information about our whereabouts, clean and functional place.
