Alimos , is a beautiful area of Athens and you have the opportunity to discover the real city of Athens and not just the typical touristic areas.The house is close to the city center, and the port of Piraeus. During summer time the coast line of the area is a very popular choice for swimming , walking and dinning. The house is 2 minutes walking from the beach, and 10 minutes from the marina where you can choose among, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, while enjoying the beautiful sunset over Castella Hill (see photos).
Located next to the sea we are enjoying the fresh sea breeze in the summer time compared to the more warm center but mostly away from any traffic jams. The bus and tram stop is just around the corner as well as the stop of the express bus from the airport.

This was scary. These "superhosts" are not truthful or honest. The only plus about this place was that they gave us a refund. It was worn out and not clean. Ice-cold and the basic "things" in the kitchen was not working and even the tea in the cupboard was out of date a year ago. Typical bad example. Definate NO.
As i have mentioned in my personal review, it was the second time that Ingrid chose to stay with me. Regarding the apartment's review, there are 60 reviews (including the review from the guest that stayed the NIGHT BEFORE Ingrid's arrival) that do not share Ingrid's opinion. It was my mistake to accept Ingrid as a guest for the second time, as i did realise the first time that she has many personal issues to resolve and she keeps changing her mind every minute. But i thought that she was influenced from the recent loss of her father. Obviously her review regarding the apartment is not real. She is a kind person but one can not easily handle her changes of mood..... She booked the apartment 2 days before her arrival.She arrived a day earlier and she asked us to help her stay for one night in one of our other apartments. Although i helped her with this last minute booking, upon arrival she decided to stay in a hotel. I offered to drive her for free to the hotel and pick her up the next morning. After a day's stay in the third apartment, she has decided to go back to the hotel....Ingrid is living in Norway. But she has stayed in 3 of my apartments and found all of them cold(!). Amazingly, after her first "bad and cold" experience she decided to book again with me....Anyway i can not recommend Ingrid as a guest.
We very much liked the flat and the neighborhood that we were located in. If the weather had been nicer, we would have spent much time on the very close beach. We were able to use the excellent public transport and enjoyed the sites that we wanted to see in Athens. A good experience!
Chryssa was a very good host. The apartment is big and comfortable with great views to the sea from the huge balcony. Recommended.
We had a lovely trip to Athens and absolutely loved the flat and the neighbourhood. It was nicely situated with lovely views, a great set of local shops and easy access to the beach. The flat itself was beautful and spacious, with everything you could need for a trip, and everything working well. Helen communicated well with us and Chryssa made us feel very welcome when she met us, and they couldn't have been more helpful the couple of times I had to call with queries.
The reservation was canceled 20 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
A wonderful location and reception. The apartment was clean and had great views of the beach!
Helena was really accommodating and we were very happy with our experience. Thank you!
My family and I stayed at this flat twice. A week at the start of our holiday and one day at the end to transfer back to the airport.
We never met anyone that was in the book for us to call if we needed anything; however, our transfer driver was the nicest angel in the whole world. Marietta transferred us from the airport to the flat and gave us the keys. Five days later my husband fell and his toenail was ripped off. He was in a lot of pain and we didnt have first aid with us or nothing was in the house. So we called the number in the book and they sent Marietta to us. It was 10pm and she came and looked after my husband as she would have done to anyone in her family. She was so kind to my family. We want her to know she is amazing!!
The location of this flat is close to a couple of beaches as well as public transport. There are shops for groceries, restaurants, and a bakery within walking distance. We had no trouble getting anywhere from this flat.
The pros of this flat: big, nice appliances in the kitchen, great coffee maker, good location, good air condition, nice balcony.
The cons of this flat: the bathroom was filthy. There was an old rag used to clean left behind the toilet. The shower walls are cover in mould and mildew, black everywhere. The bathroom smells of mildew-this could also be because the mop used to clean the flat is sitting in the corner. When we arrived there were two half used toilet paper rolls and we had to go buy our own. The window screen in the shower is ripped and ragged.
The TV in the livingroom doesn't work, you can only watch DVDs. This wasnt a problem for my family, but I dont think you can say there is a TV here if it doesnt work.
There seems to be an ant problem as they were in the hallways, bathroom and were found in the bed.
I wouldnt stay again or recommend to anyone. We even thought about not staying here the last night and staying at a hotel. We didnt mind losing out on the money thats how bad we thought the bathroom was. My children were afraid of ants in their beds. We only stayed because we couldnt find a room close enough to the airport.
Thank you Rachel for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our country. Allow me to notice some facts. FACT No1 - The apartment has 2 TV sets, one in the living room that plays only DVD (as you mentioned) and another for TV programs in the bedroom. Fact No2 - This apartment has 56 reviews ,and no one has the impression that the bathroom is "filthy". What is impressive is also the fact that the guests just before and after your stay wrote an excellent review , mentioning that the apartment was clean. FACT No 3 - During your 1 week stay or your second stay , you did not mentioned any problem , or you never contacted us referring to the "problem". I would like to assure you that if you had mentioned any problem, we would have send immediately a cleaning lady to listen to your needs and prepare any part of the apartment to your standards FACT No 4 . I would like to inform you that the cleaning lady that cleaned after your week's stay, reported to me that all over the apartment there were left over food and crumbs everywhere (chairs, beds, couch, etc). We were obliged to disinfest the apartment, because as you realise the crumbs have attracted ants and insects.
