It is really easy to access the airport and the port of Piraeus.

Interaction with Guests
It's up to you! My first priority is to be always available for my guests through mail, text or call. It will be my pleasure to give you information and tips about my city and for short excursions near Athens. Upon request, there is the possibility to have a taxi driver waiting for you at the airport, to take you back at the airport/port, or to organise short, private tours in the city. If you are interested in something of the above, please let me know to arrange it and inform you of the choices and charges.
Is there anything special that you celebrate during your stay? Birthday, anniversary or something else? Please let me know about any special occasions.
If you are going to visit an island or another area of Greece before or after your stay in my apartment, let me know about the place, it will be my pleasure to give you tips and recommendations.
I am not only here to host you but to help you organise the best holidays ever!
The neighborhood is friendly and safe. I love this small green hill, right in front of the apartment, it is so quiet and green.
It is really convenient that the metro, bus and tram stations are in walking distance. And many times, I love walking until Acropolis and Syntagma square, it is not so far away!
There is almost everything you night need in walking distance, really close to the house, such as:
super market (which is open daily, even on weekends until late at night),
open air vegetables, fruit and fish market every Monday,
coffee shops and restaurants in the square of Aghios Ioannis, where the metro station is.
My neighbours are really friendly, you could even knock their door in case you need something!
Aghios Ioannis metro station in only 2 minutes walking away. Neos Kosmos tram station is in walking distance too.
From the airport you can take the bus, line X95. You will arrive at Syndagma Square and there, you will take the metro, the line to Aghios Dimitrios or Hellinikon and the metro station by the house is Aghios Ioannis metro station.
-or take directly the metro from the airport and change line in Syndagma square as above.
As soon as you arrive at Aghios Ioannis station, take the road on your left, it is Kasomouli street. After less than 60 meters (there are traffic lights), take the road on your left again. This is Barmpanou street, where the apartment is located.
Other Things to Note
Daily/weekly cleaning upon request (extra charge)
Private tours upon request (extra charge)
Pet friendly, gay friendly, no drugs, no guns!
Please respect the neighbors (no party) and the property. The flat is made with love and care and all objects have a sentimental value. Keep it down between 14:00 to 17:00 and after 23:00, due to quietness policy in Athens.
The place is a great quite homely fell.. felt like i was in a village. i loved the living room in the winter close the doors and its lovely and warm. didnt get the tv to work but the wifi is good. cooker is old but workable. all was good. never needed to contact katerina. the lady in the building showed me everything
Katerina is very kind. Her house is confortable very close to the subway easy to go to the centre or Acropoli. The right place to start visit Athens.
Thanks to Katerina.
Katerina was a very kind host and great in communicating. Since this was a last minute booking she had everything arranged in time. even a taxi which picked us up right from the airport. The apartment is just how it's shown on the website and is was wunderful. The location is unbeatable and the surrounding neighborhood couldn't be better. The little booklet with recommendations Katerina has in the apartment was very helpful along with lots of maps and tour guides. We would not hesitate to stay there again and highly recommend it to everybody who would like to visit Athens on a long or short term.
Athens is a lovely city and Katerina's apartment is located in the best spot to start discovering the capital. The apartment is very beautiful, clean and full of light. Its balcony opens on a garden full of pine-trees: we were not expecting such a luxury! We didn't have the chance to meet Katarina, but she has been extremely thoughtful to us, even at distance. We had a wonderful experience and I would recommend Katarina's apartment to everyone.
I've stayed in the apartment for a week in the end of July. The location of the apartment is great, very close to the metro, and just a couple of stops to the center. It is also fairly easy to get to/from the airport. The apartment is clean and spacious, and it has everything one might need. Katerina provides written instructions for everything (from grocery shopping to how hot water works), as well as a pretty nice package of tourist information, which is really nice. Katerina was also very attentive and helpful, replying very quickly to messages. Overall, I highly recommend this place!
Katerina is a warm, lovely host and made us feel very welcome. She gave us a whole lot of maps and guides and good recommendations for restaurants which we tried and loved. The apartment is just as pretty as it looks in the pictures. It is comfortable and has everything one could need. The location was perfect- close to the Metro, a supermarket, a bakery, a bar and a few restaurants. The verandah looks on to a lovely pine forest which is quite unusual in a city. We enjoyed our stay here and looked forward to coming back each evening after a hectic schedule of sightseeing.
Наведались сюда с супругой на 3 дня в конце июня. Отличная квартира в центре Афин, действительно минута пешком до метро. Несколько кафешек и магазинчиков рядом, в самой квартире - все условия, 2 кондиционера, вай-фай, пожалуй, самый быстрый из тех, которые нам попадались в Греции, телевизор, спальня, кухня, со всей утварью и даже соль, сахар,крупы, макароны - на всякий случай, большой балкон.
Отдельно хочется сказать о хозяйке. Катерина - большая молодец, оставила в квартире кучу дельных советов от лучших заведений - до самых интересных пляжей и маршрутов. Во время нашего путешествия возникла сложность с ранним трансфером в порт Рафина, Катерина подключилась к решению проблемы и предложила 3 варианта - как добраться - в итоге было выбрано такси и она его сама заказала, причем цена оказалась ни сколько не завышенной.
Все здорово, рекомендуем!
Airbnb is something I really enjoy. It gives me the oppurtunity to meet people from all over the world, exchange experiences, to help people have a great time in my country.
Other than that, my hobbies are travelling, photography, yoga.
My favourite time is when I am close to animals and pets I am taking care of them. I have been an animal welfare volunteer for the last 6 years and I love it!
My favourite destinations: Ubud, Bali
