About this listing
Sunny and modern - my apartment will truly make you feel at home with its carefully decorated cozy corners highlighted with tasteful details. You'll be delighted by the quiet and green area of Marousi and by the easy access to all means of transit.
The arrangement of the exclusive furniture coupled with the spatial flow create a sense of inhouse freedom that will give you a peaceful easy feeling. From the library full of books waiting for you to unfold, to the views from amongst the plants on the fourth floor balcony, you will be surrounded by creature comforts.
A countertop bar separates the fully equipped kitchen from the dining room, which leads into the living room where one big couch can serve as a comfortable bed for the third guest.
In the bedroom there’s a luxurious double bed and full in-suite bathroom with a bathtub. There's an air conditioner for the summer season and a heater to warm you during winter in case the central heating is not enough. Most cupboards and drawers are empty, together with two big shelves above the washing machine to fit suitcases, leaving plenty of storage space, even for long term accommodations. Exactly opposite the bedroom there is an extra bathroom with shower.
High speed wi-fi connection covers the whole apartment, and there is also free parking on the grounds upon request.
The house is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood with a cornermarket, bakery, pharmacy, and other small stores just one or two blocks away. Citrus and olive tree lined streets lead all directions, including a short walk to Alsos Siggrou recreational park with many well developed tracks and small footpaths winding through the vineyard, orchard, meadow, and up & down the hills of the pine forest.
This upmarket residential northern borough of Athens is well known for its open air public spaces, its easy access to the city center and all parts of Attica, and its nestled location between the up and coming area of Chalandri and other posh neighborhoods of Kifissia, Erythrea and Ekali. A short drive beyond takes one to the edges of Attica and the mountain recreational areas of Parnitha, Penteli, and Ymittos with vast forests, long trails, and great views.
A five minute stroll along Alexander the Great street in front of the apartment, leads to Kifissias Avenue, with access to all major bus lines. One kilometer south on the avenue is the suburban train station with direct access to Athens International Airport. The quaint pedestrian shopping area of central Marousi, and its Metro station leading to downtown Athens, is just one kilometer from the house. During recent years, Marousi has become the biggest commercial and business district outside the center of Athens. Here you’ll find shopping centers like the Golden Hall and The Mall with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and cinemas. Just behind them lies the renovated Olympic Complex with myriad sporting facilities available to the public. Since the end of the Summer Games in 2004, after the entire area was upgraded, it has become an important attraction to visitors, and a daily escape for parents to play with their kids.
My modern and freshly designed apartment is here to act as a homebase for you to explore the diverse and seemingly endless Athens!
Interaction with Guests
If I have the chance to meet my guests in person, I give them a warm welcome and I remain in their disposal for any directions or tips they might need.
From a purely selfish point of view I'm a little bit reluctant to tell the world just how wonderful this apartment and the hosts are as it might mean it being constantly booked out and I'll never be able to get a vacancy there again!
But praise where praise is due so I must say that my time at this lovely stylish apartment was fabulous and I could quite happily have moved in.
I work from home so needed a fast, reliable broadband connection and this could not have been any better. The apartment is peaceful and elegant and very well equipped. Only a few minutes walk from a supermarket, hair salon, butchers and coffee shop.
Myrto was always available prior to my trip to answer my questions and her cool brother and his beautiful dog Luna were there to meet me and to make my stay really fab.
I will never stay in a hotel again when traveling to Athens and would urge anybody thinking of doing so to think again and choose this lovely apartment instead.
Thanks for everything, I'll be back, for sure :-)
Myrto is a perfect host! Her apartment was excellent and really lovelly, very clean, situated in a peaceful neighborhood of Maroussi just few minutes from the commercial center. My friends and I have only good things to tell! We strongly recommend it and we would like to thank Myrto and her family for the great hospitality!
Amazing place, super decorated in a safe area. I had a wonderful stay, thank you Myrto

Apartment was exactly as described and as in the photos. Welcomed by Myrto's brother and her father checked everything was ok without being intrusive. Comfortable stay, lovely area. Close to Marousi centre. Exactly as described on site and in reviews. Would recommend apartment and area to anyone staying in the area. I would return to stay here. Thank you for a lovely stay Myrto!
We had another excellent stay at Myrto's apartment in Marousi. We were welcomed by Myrto on our arrival and reminded how everything worked. The apartment is fully equipped and exactly as described on the airbnb website.
We intend to return next spring and would recommend the apartment to anyone wishing to stay in this area of Athens.

About the Host, Myrto
