Fotis was really helpful. He waited for us at night and directed us to the flat. He talked by phone with the taxi driver to get to the flat quicker since there wee some problems with the public transport due to the political situation in Athens. Fotis gave us some tips waht to start with in Athens and offered us a lot of guide books.
The flat was really nice with the view of the city and a mount. The greatest thing about the flat is, I think, the location: it's near the tram stop from which you can easily get to the beach or get to the centre where you can take the underground or a bus. There is also a bakery and supermarket very close to the flat. Well the next great thing is the park just on the other side of the street where the local people spend the time almost till the midnight. In the park there is the open-air gym which you can enjoy. It is quiet in the flat though. We also appreciated the air conditionong installed in every bedroom. The kitchen is eqipped with all the necessary things.
I recommend visiting the local tavern - 10 minutes' walk from the flat where we tried authentic Greek cuisine!
I booked the apartment for my family we they came to visit us. They had a lovely stay. It's a big apartment so they wasn't on top of each other. The apartment was clean and close to lots of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and other retail shops. The tram was also close to the apartment which can take you all they way in to city centre or all the way to south coast beaches. We will book again the next time my family come to visit.
Perfect apt and neighborhood for small children. Apt just as described. Host was welcoming and helpful. No complaints, we had a perfect stay :)
We had a great time in this appartment. It is very spacious and nice and cool. Location is perfect with an tram that takes you both to the beach or the city center. We liked that the area was not touristic at all. People were really nice and there is a beautiful square with lots of nice bars restaurants and shops. We would recommend going to the one at the corner next to starbucks!! The market on wednesday was also really nice. Owner of the appartment was also really nice and he made sure we had everything we needed. He even picked us up at the tram station to make sure that we would find the appartment.
Thanks for a great time!
Fotis is a great host ! He was reliable, flexible and available for us. I also highly recommend the appartment which is very good located, between the sea and the center of Athens, and well furnished. There was everything we needed. Thanks you very much and hope to see you during a next trip in Athens :) All the best !
The host was most welcoming and accommodating to a family with a small baby. The location was very convenient to public transportation, a beautiful park and shops of all sorts.
The contact with Fotis was accurate, quick, friendly and helpful from the beginning by email and later in person. He showed us places to go and gave valious tips for our stay in Athens. The apartment has ample space to stay with a larger family and is well equipped and clean. The center as well as the beach can easily be reached, either by tram or car. An excellent place to stay that I can definitely recommend!

About the Host, Fotis
I rent my properties since many years short term and long terms to tourists and visitors of Athens. I am glad to help and provide friendly accommodation.
I personally like to travel around, have visited almost all European countries so far. I am married and we live in Athens, and visit a lot another nice place called Loutraki, 80 km away, where my parents live.
I enjoy the smiles that satisfied tenants have after they leave Athens, and am glad when they come back. Feel free to contact me for anything you want to know about Athens, or questions you have on planning your trip, even if you won't stay at my apartment!
