Interaction with Guests
I am available for any request or advice. I reside in the house upstairs and I am willing to help as much as I can.
The house is in sparsely populated area. It's very quiet and peaceful here away from the traffic and noise of the big city. A wonderful place to rest and relax. Even though, it's not far from the market, bars and tavernas, not to forget the beach also!
2 BIKES (free) ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE GUESTS for getting around. Walking is also an alternative or taking the bus to Athens or elsewhere.
Other Things to Note
I should mention that my dog is very friendly and he really loves people!
It will be appreciated if you used my personal belongings wisely and keep it clean. Respect the privacy and rest time of the other residences.
Please close the windows and door when leaving the house, as well the garden door which I would like to be always closed! I wouldn't like my dog to go out!
DO NOT throw paper in the toilet! Use the bin instead. This is the standard for Greek sewer systems.
Please, leave the room in the same condition that you found it.
Before check-out make sure everything is clean, including kitchenware, no garbage, etc.
Take the garbage with you when leaving the apartment (there is garbage bin near the house).
Don't forget to give me the keys at your departure.
Hi all! My name is Maria and I'd like to welcome you to my cozy apartment with sea view in Rafina or my house in Nea Makri, or even my beautiful private room, close to Athens!
I like walking by the beach with my dog and during the summer I go swimming almost every day!
I am a biologist and I work at a marine research center, at the fisheries department. I care about the environment and I have worked as a volunteer, occasionally. I like literature a lot as well as music!
...and I am an animal friend as I believe that we all share this planet and we have equal rights!
I love meeting new people and making connections that make the world a better place. I look for independent guests who can let themselves in and manage on their own (with simple to follow instructions that I leave for you!).
