The Neighborhood

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.

  • My husband and I just returned from a one month stay at the Athens Sea View apartment. We've lived in Greece before (downtown) and this time we wanted to live by the water. You couldn't pick a better location. If for nothing else, I think the location is absolutely perfect! Situated in an affluent neighborhood right across the beach of Alimos, on a quiet residential street across from an elementary school. We had restaurants and stores nearby, two TRAM stops to choose from and easy access to the main road of Leoforos Poseidonas. It took us 10 minutes to drive to Glyfada and 10 minutes to drive downtown. PERFECT LOCATION. Given that it was summer, the traffic wasn't very bad but I can imagine that it probably gets super busy during the summer. No matter for you however, if you're walking across the street to the beach - no need for a car!

    The apartment itself was alright. This is the 5th floor penthouse of a 5 story building. It's an older building, so don't expect modern decor or amenities, but it does have everything you will absolutely need for a great trip. Spacious 3 rooms, living area and kitchen! I assure you that you wont be spending much time indoors anyways. You're in beautiful Greece with everything you need OUTSIDE so get outdoors!

    The patio is the real seller here. Every morning we would enjoy our coffees and breakfast outside watching the water and old men play paddle ball on the beach. Watching people walk up and down the platform and seeing the water was a delight.

    Helena and her husband were very helpful. Whenever we had a question, they always promptly replied back to us to offer their assistance. Gracious hosts!

    If this is your first time in Greece, be prepare for awesomeness. Greece is the most amazing country in the world, especially when you know where to go! I visit every year and every year I learn about new things to do and see. Especially in Athens! If this is your first time, or you don't speak the language, I would ask Helena and her husband for help. They seem to offer tours and tips around the Athens area. A great way to learn about the city.

    We will be sure to contact them for our next vacation stay in Athens! We love this city and you will too!

  • Vassilis and Helena were wonderful with us.
    The house is really big and comfortable for every kind of person . We were in 3 pilots I'm the house , we stayed for about a month and Helena was there for any help.
    You can find everything you need around the house , the center of Glyfada is in about 5 minutes were you can find lot of shops, restaurant and night life. The view of the house , especially the main veranda on the beach is just amazing .
    You basically fell like home and the beaches are just in front of the house in 2 minutes walking distance .
    We want again to say thank you Helena and Vassilis for your help , we wish to see you again soon .
    From the first day back to Milan we were missing the special view from your apartment.
    Grazie Mille!

  • Helena and Vassili's place is perfect for anyone wanting to stay in Athens. A half a block away from the beach, very close to the tram station and buses. The view from the balconies was amazing! You could spend hours just sitting there relaxing and taking it all in. The apartment itself was VERY roomy, the four of us we really comfortable and I could imagine a group of 6 or even more being just as comfortable. Helena and Vassili made us feel very welcome. They have everything well organized. You can tell they have thought of every detail. Safe neighborhood, quiet neighbors, immaculate. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

  • Останавливались в квартире компанией из 4 друзей на протяжении 9 дней в октябре 2013 года. Это был первый опыт бронирования жилья через сайт airbnb. Наши впечатления превзошли все ожидания. Квартира просто супер!!!!!! С первых шагов понимаешь, что ты дома, а хозяева сделали все возможное, чтобы вы это чувствовали. Везде разложены подробные инструкции относительно пользования квартирой и информация о жизни в Афинах. Сама квартира очень большая, комфортная, чистая. В кухне имеется все необходимое: посуда, чайник, микроволновка, тостерница, плита. В квартире есть есть стиральная машина. Про балконы и виды с них - отдельный разговор. Они шикарны. Честно! Порой идти куда-то не хотелось, а хотелось просто сидеть и смотреть на море, порт и корабли. Романтика полнейшая! Размещение очень удобно для путешествий в город и порт. Пляж находится через дорогу, примерно в 200 метрах от жилья. Сам пляж мелкогалечный, уютный, с кафе. Вход на пляж в летний период 3 евро, лежак на день столько же. С 1 октября вход на пляж бесплатный, лежак 3 евро. Всем, кто сомневается заказывать эту квартиру хочу сказать, что если судьба приведет меня ехать в Афины, я хотел бы остановиться лишь в этой квартире. Она чудесна!

  • Even though I never met Helena, my stay was great! I was picked up with no problem at the Athens airport after a very long flight. The apartment was beautiful and spacious with a gorgeous view of the sea. The balcony was wonderful to sit and have dinner on. I will definitely stay with Helena in the future and highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to stay in Athens.

  • Only stayed for one night, but it was comfortable and clean. Very spacious, with a balcony that runs the entire length of the apartment. Fifth floor though, and only one very small elevator for like two people at the time. Lengthy process if you have a lot of luggage like we did. Helena was very friendly and had helpful written guides for the things to use, as well as for the tourist stuff. Location was also very convenient: across the street from the tram, and not far from the Pireaus port (for our cruise).

  • Квартира большая, но удобно разместиться могут только 2 пары ( 2 спальни с двуспальными кроватями) Симпатичный вид на море, до пляжа пешком - через проезжую часть - 5 минут. Но очень шумно: все ночь - часов до 4 утра - гремела музыка в пляжном ресторане. Всего одна ванная комната - с утра пришлось устроить живую очередь, чтобы умыться. Кухня крохотная и не очень удобная - вместо плиты небольшая электрическая плитка с двумя конфорками. Квартира показалась не очень уютной и какой-то слишком туристической. Очень удобно останавливаться яхтсменам, арендовавшим, как мы, яхту в марине Алимос - до нее 10 минут пешком.

  • lovely apartment, fast response (we booked it the same day as we wanted to stay) and very helpful host! Vassily waited for us over an hour the 1st night to give us the key after we got lost, helped us book boat tickets to visit Hydra Island, drove us to the port early in the morning, and spoke to us on the phone several times. There is beach access right across the street and we found several nice restaurants close by. Bus and tram access right across the street as well. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, 2 beautiful balconies, perfect for a big group. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
