It can be arranged for private transfer from the airport with 8 euros from 1800 pm to 530 am
Booked for two nights but couldn't stay more than 12 hours. It was great talking with Joe and he tried his best to be a good host. However, as the other reviews mention this place is completely run down. It's very dirty, smelly and an absolutely No No. Me and my sister had quite an adventurous night at Joe's place. We reached at 9 pm from Meteora --the taxi charged us 40euros to drive from Monasterika to this place. The drive was more than an hour in no traffic. But Joe mentioned that if we take a bus from town center we should be there in 50 mins--which I am sure is not true as it will take more than 2 hours if you use public transport.
We had quite an interesting drive in those no street lights road and got really scared but we reached. There were no lights on the path that leads to the wired staircase...its a backdoor entry. Oh boy! the dogs scared us to death--kept barking and the fences were so low--but thankfully they couldn't get us:)
We used our phone -torch app to reach the room--my sister was in tears in seeing the room! We couldn't sleep the whole night-mosquitoes, the hard box spring with no mattress, the smell and the dogs' barking. Next day morning we left! Tried calling Joe a hundred times but no response. The bathroom and kitchen cannot be used tho the refrigerator was a big treat. I wish if I could post some pics!
The place has a good view of the sea. The neighbor Sofia was very helpful as she helped us to get out of there--by calling a taxi for us. The place is not close to the airport--it's atleast 20-25 kms from airport. There was a person from Albania in the same premise who helped us a lot and our taxi driver called us 4 times that night to check if we were okay...met good people...anyway now both of us just laugh remembering that memorable night at Athens!
The other side of the story is that when they called me from Athens, metro station Monastiraki I told them to get the metro and then the bus to reach the place in about an hour, that will cost them around 3 euro each, they decided to get a taxi .
I talked to the taxi driver to help him locate the place but they had already agree the price.
The distance from Athens is 30km and the taxi driver charged 40 euros .
I send a man to take them up in the house and carry the heavy lauggages, they asked food to eat and the same man took them to a close fast food.
The next morning decided to leave the house leaving all the lights on and food all over the place.
I talked to them later the other day ..
The place is 12 km from airport .
Any way I hope they have good time
They picked us up from the station. The appartment is near to the sea. A wunderful beach and nature!
Για άλλη μια φορά η παραμονή μου ήταν εξαιρετική, όπως και η φιλοξενία. Εκτίμησα ιδιαίτερα ότι ο ιδιοκτήτης μού παρείχε προσωρινό χώρο παραμονής μέχρι να απελεθερωθεί το διαμέρισμα που ήταν κρατημένο από άλλα άτομα. Πρόκειται για ένα πολύ ωραίο διαμέρισμα με απεριόριστη θέα στη θάλασσα, πολύ πράσινο γύρω, άνετο μπαλκόνι, μεγάλους χώρους, υπνοδωμάτιο, κουζίνα, ευρύχωρο σαλόνι. Μου άρεσε ιδιαίτερα η εύκολη πρόσβαση στη θάλασσα σε 10 λεπτά με τα πόδια αλλά και στο κέντρο της Αθήνας με το λεωφορείο που περνάει κοντά. Πολύ ευχαρίστως θα έμενα εκεί ξανά στην επόμενη επίσκεψή μου στην Ελλάδα. Βαθμολογία 11 με άριστα το 10.
Joe is a great host, he did his best to make me feel comfortable during my stay in Greece, and he is always friendly, polite and easy to talk with. The house is also very comfortable, it has everything you need: a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, living room, and a big balcony with great view to the sea. The beach is very close, only a 10-15-minute walk, and also at a 10-minute walk distance you can find super markets and the bus stop, to take the bus, any time you want to visit the the center of Athens. Everything was so great, that I decided to extend my stay for one more week, and for sure I will make a new reservation when I visit Greece again.
Really loved the place. It was rustic, quite basic - but you get a whole place to yourself with a nice little terrace - and a beautiful sea view. For us it wasn't so good as we needed to be close to the airport and couldn't get the lift described on air bnb blurb. So not good if you need to be close to the airport as it takes a long time on the bus and a taxi is expensive. Having said that I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all, it's in a really beautiful area and the beaches are quiet and secluded..
Like said by other people who came in Joe's apartment:
Joe is a very nice host who is helpful and polite, he is easily contactable. The flat he offers is situated in a nice and calm town by the sea.
Other advantage : a man drove us to Athens airport early in the morning.
The problem was with the cleaness : the flat was very very dirty !
There is also loud neighbours and barking dogs.
A little housework and some restauration work can transform this flat on a very beautiful place!
