Probably the most beautiful area of Athens, next to the beach with magnificient sunset & great night life
Great place and locationtion to explore Athens. Excellent service and communication from Helena and Vassilis, they gave valuable tips for our stay in Athens as well as where to go and what to see afterwards during our stay in Greece (thanks for suggesting Paradiso in Agia Anna ;) ). Would choose again and suggest to our friends!
The host made us feel very welcome! The communication was excellent and quick. We had pick up from Helena's airport and it was efficient and a really warm welcome.
The best parts were the roof deck and the neighborhood around the apartment. My friend and I loved bringing our coffee back in the morning and sitting on the deck looking at the city. We also loved feeling like locals in such a big city and enjoyed the apartment's neighborhood as much (or even more) than downtown Athens. If/when I go back, I will definitely stay here again!
My friends and I stayed one night and we really enjoyed our stay at this great apartment. The apartment was clean, quiet and close to a fantastic restaurant, just across the street.
Helena and Vassilis couldn't have been more accommodating. They are truly fantastic hosts and I couldn't recommend them more highly.
Helena and Vassilis were warm and welcoming into this nice flat. It was clean, quiet, close to a nice grocery store and the beach. The terrace was amazing as well. All in all, a refreshingly nice accommodation in busy Athens.
Vassilis also let us store our luggage for a few hours as the check in at our next place was at a very awkward time. Later he helped us get some pre-made food as provisioning for our sailing trip and delivered it personally to the marina! Great food and great help! Awesome!
Our experience was great from start to finish. Our pick at the airport was waiting when we arrived, the apartment was perfect for our one night stay in Athens, the listing described it perfectly. The Veranda was beautiful and a great way too look out at Athens.
