My home away from home has been rented by my real estate agent in Nafplio for the past year and a half. We're now starting to open it up to Airbnb clients. Although short-term stays are fine, my preference would be to have a minimal stay of 1 month.

Your host, Wanda

My home away from home has been rented by my real estate agent in Nafplio for the past year and a half. We're now starting to open it up to Airbnb clients. Although short-term stays are fine, my preference would be to have a minimal stay of 1 month.

The Space

Nafplio was the first capital of Greece and as an historical site the building codes are very strict. My condo is the only unit on the rooftop of a 3 story building with no higher buildings in sight. I'm across the street from the ocean and have the best unobstructed view of the Bourtzi and Palamidi fortresses, the port and the old town. And if you love being surrounded by mountains, you'll be more than happy!

This is a one bedroom condo with a closed kitchen and bathroom. I've been refurnishing the interior over the past 2 years. Outdoors on the rooftop terrace there are 2 awnings that can be lowered for complete privacy.

The kitchen is on the small side, but complete with a fridge and mini stove, plus a folding table that can be used indoors or out.

The bathroom has a deep tub, a shower, good water pressure and lots of hot water. I recently bought a new washing machine and usually dry my clothes outside in the sea breeze.

Outside on the rooftop is where you'll probably spend most of your time. One of my friends who stayed here when I first moved in spent the entire summer sleeping outside! It's quite large out there so you can bring out furniture for a get together or do your morning workout.

Nafplio is a very safe city and I always feel perfectly fine there on my own; you will too. The natives are friendly and respectful.

Depending on your preference and needs, there is enough room for 2 people - in a pinch you can squeeze in a guest on the pullout sofa indoors, or on one of the sofas outdoors.

I'm a 10 minute walk into the old town where you can find a wide variety of restaurants and bars on the waterfront, and the newer town is only a couple of blocks away. There's parking in front of my building if you rent a car. And if you come by boat you can moor it across the road!

My favorite beach, Aravanitia, is about a 30 minute walk, just past the old town, underneath the Palamidi, and has an uninterrupted view of the mountains - breathtaking!

There's a market in the old town on Wednesdays and Saturdays where you can get everything fresh and local, as well as a liter of wine for 2 euros and stock the fridge!

Guest Access

There is parking in front of the building if required.

Interaction with Guests

I'm always available by email or phone. My real estate agent can help you with everything else. I've also made some good friends there who I can put you in touch with.

The Neighborhood

It's a very peaceful neighbourhood close to everything you need, nestled between the mountains and the sea.

Getting around

You can walk everywhere, but a bicycle or car can give you a bit more freedom to explore.

  • Wanda and I met while we were working in the 'hospitality' business. Hospitality being the key word here. She is welcoming, thoughtful, compassionate and knows how to listen, all wonderful traits for an airbnb hostess. I can't wait to get to Nafplio to see all that she has done with her space. If it's anything like her home in Montreal, it will be simple, clean, functional and as elegant and tasteful as the Hostess herself! If you find yourself looking at the posting, consider it a good omen and trust that you've found a little bit of heaven! ..... and can I say heaven again? I finally did manage to get to Nafplio and to Wanda's well appointed apartment! Most of the time we sat outside to enjoy the view from the rooftop, I even slept outside a few nights, we'd redecorated the outdoor space and added a couch. The kitchen has a basic set up although you won't want to be cooking at home with all the fantastic, modestly priced restaurants to choose from. Town is within a 10 min walk, the beach another 5 min-10 min depending on how you approach the hill. It is certainly worth the trek as the sea opens out onto more sea. Breathtaking!

  • Wanda is a highly enthusiastic and exceptionally friendly person. I have known her for over twenty years and she is a friend who will always make the extra effort to make you feel at home. She has a very laid back, yet energetic style which is reflected in her apartment. Wanda is an avid photographer so I'm sure her place really looks as good as the pictures! Friends of mine have stayed at the apartment, loved every minute of it and highly recommended it for me to stay there as well. Last year (2013) the apartment was rented for a long period, during which time quite some improvements have been made as I can see on the photos. A real estate agent looks after the apartment, makes sure all is in order and will welcome you when you arrive.

  • I have known Wanda for over forty years, in fact we grew up around the block from each other, so i think i really know her!! She is a very dedicated and trust worthy friend to me and to many others close to her. We all love her kind heart and the way she listens. She is the kind of person who will want people to be safe, comfortable and welcome in her home, and she has spent much time in getting her wonderful Nafplio escape, traveler ready. As is her style, Wanda is doing this with great care, making sure that the comforts of home are just right and that the look of the place is ab fab!! This is a labour of love for Wanda, and she has made sure that even the lamps are just so! I can't wait to rent the place myself! I visited Nafplio in 2004, and really, the town is a dream - stunning architecture, beautiful beaches, friendly locals - and I can't wait to get back and stay in Wanda's place with those amazing views!

About
I presently work part time as a receptionist in a dental clinic and this allows me the opportunity to visit Greece a bit more often. My hobbies are photography, dancing and tennis - all of which travel well! What I love most about Nafplio is the small town feel it provides but with all of the modern amenities. You can walk everywhere - I've never needed a car! Almost everyone speaks English, but in a pinch you can easily find a translator. I love the quiet time I can find here all the while knowing that fun is just around the corner if you need it. It's the perfect getaway!
