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 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 dogs are very friendly and they really love 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.
Maria is a great host! The place in Nea Makri is perfect for couple which want to spend a nice, peacfull, relaxing time around nature and close to see. Maria gave us a map and marked most important places to see/ visit. We highly recommend staying with Maria !!!!
After enjoying the hustle and bustle of Santorini we wanted to have some quiet time away from the tourist destinations and live the Greek lifestyle. Maria's place gave us just what we needed and we had a restful week, exploring Athens when we felt the need to go there, otherwise riding the bikes she had for us and exploring Nea Makri. Maria was wonderful. She picked us up and dropped us back to the port when we arrived and left and thoughtfully had food in the fridge for us when we arrived knowing we would be too tired to shop. Maria was also great company and we both know we will keep in touch with our new Greek friend.
Wie had a very good time in Maria's house. The location is calm and offers good opportunities to walk through the Mountains nature. The very nice beach is 5min. to go by car.All you need is in the room and wie found it Quote tasteful. Maria is a decent host who respects privacy but she supports whenever help is requested.
The room is perfect for two. It was our second time with Maria and we recommend her because she is a real nice and friendly host.
A big thank you to Maria Karkani for your warm welcome and Greek hospitality! We loved your house (quiet and very clean) with a beautiful garden jasmine-scented and filled with olive, orange, pine, etc and flowers. We discovered with pleasure Attica: Marathon and a wonderful nature as the mountain to the sea.
Maria is a lovely hostess who taught us a lot about Greece and the challenges of its area of Nea Makri. We had a wonderful experience and it is with pleasure that we recommend this beautiful space both in a natural setting but not too far from Athens! Fotoula and Jean Claude!
Maria picked us up and thet busstation. Even when we first said we'll walk. :) The room was fine. We loved the place beceause it is near the beach. In the area of Nea Makri there is not so much to see/tourist places. In the appartment we missed a map or information about the area.
Ilja thank you for your review! For me it was, as I said, great to host you in my room. I would like to tell you also that the room was dyed few days before your arrival, with organic paint. Also, I don't let my dogs stay in the room. As for the map, there was a map with some information on it. Something that is missing, of course, is a complete guide of the area and I am working on this. There are many interesting places around (Schinias beach and forest protected from Ramsar convention, Marathon museum, tomb etc, Marathon lake, Ramnous archaeological site, ancient Egyptian temple in Nea Makri and other places). Someone needs a car or motorcycle or a bike to reach these places. The area is mostly for swimming and walking at the beach and around, if you don't have a vehicle. Thank you again!
Maria came and picked us up at the bus stop and made us feel welcome right away. She was the perfect host giving us some things to eat and making sure we had everything we needed then allowing us perfect privacy.
The accommodations are neat and clean and in a quiet neighbourhood. Just at the end of the street there are several tavernas to have a meal-all good. The price for value is really great!
Great host! So nice and sweet did everything she could to make sure we had a great stay. Lent us bicycles and advised us where to go and even started us off with some fresh fruit when we arrived. Best airbnb experience yet!

About the Host, Maria
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!).
