The Neighborhood

Nea Smirni , is a quiet area of Athens and you have the opportunity to discover the real city of Athens and not just the typical touristic areas.The house is close to the city center, and the port of Piraeus. The house is 3 minutes walking from the shopping area, and 10 minutes drive from the marina where you can choose among, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, while enjoying the beautiful sunset over Castella Hill (see photos).
Located on top floor and close to the sea we are enjoying the fresh sea breeze in the summer time compared to the more warm center but mostly away from any traffic jams.

  • We had a wonderful stay at the Athens Family House. The apartment was very nice and clean. The main balcony was wonderful. Access to the City Center was very easy using the Tram. Helena had her team pick us up at the airport when we arrived and took us to the port to catch a ferry for the islands. Having this transportation was great, and getting to talk to the drivers about the area was very nice.

    Response from Helena:

    Thank you Steve for your nice review. Regarding not recommending a walking distance restaurant, the reason is simple. We DO NOT recommend any nearby restaurant, as we believe they are not good. Also as we are having guests from all over the world with different diet habits, and in the past we received from few guests, bad reviews because they did not like the restaurant we suggest(!!), ....so, we took the decision to suggest some really outstanding restaurants which are not in the touristic area of Athens.

  • Nice apartment with a great view! We were met at the airport by Karissa who made us feel very welcome! Everyone was very helpful, we would definitely recommend this apartment to others.

  • Nous avons apprécié notre séjour , et trouvé l'accueil très sympathique .
    Appartement vaste , accueillant avec une terrasse , que le vent , malheureusement , ne nous a pas permis d'utiliser autant que nous l'aurions souhaité .
    Petite précision , que nous avons signalé à notre hôte , le non fonctionnement du lave vaisselle ,une légère fuite au frigo et aux WC du haut ,un ménage préalable approximatif ,et un jeu de clés qui fonctionnait très mal ,tout ceci pour les locataires suivants .
    Malgré tout , nous le confirmons , séjour très agréable .

  • Absolutely perfect!!!
    Chryssa, who picked us up from airport and also returned us, was amazingly friendly, charming and made us feel very welcome.
    Apartment owner Nick very helpful in letting us store luggage at his property way past our checkout time.
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Helen's company and this magnificent apartment!

  • We stayed in the Athens Family house, and it was wonderful! It's a gorgeous apartment, plenty of room, there were 7 of us and it worked really well for us. Helena and Vassili were very helpful, providing a very reasonable car service when we wanted it. Great apartment, lovely people.

  • We are traveling for a year throughout Europe using airbnb in each city for two weeks per stay so we know what works and what doesn't. This place works. The price was great and everything was as described in the listing. The apartment was very spacious and the huge deck was a perfect place for morning coffee - in fact anytime of day. We like staying in homes where you get a sense of how the owner lives. You definitely get that when you stay here! If you are looking for sterile IKEA this place is not for you. However, if you want a true 'living in Athens' experience in a neighborhood outside the center then this IS for you.

    There is easy access to the Tram just a couple of blocks away and that will get you to the city center or the beach. The stores in the neighborhood were great, too - and on Friday there is a great open air market within walking distance.

    The hosts were absolutely wonderful and very helpful. They can arrange just about anything you need - from transportation to tours to just being quick to respond to your questions. We really enjoyed getting to know them. We highly recommend this airbnb!

  • A great top floor flat close to the Tram!
    Vassili welcome us very well. We spent time there as we were at home.
    Perfect.

  • We had a lovely stay in athens in the family house. We have two young children and they loved the balcony and space of the apartment. Helena and Vasili helped us find a translator at very short notice and were both very helpful. The apartment is close to shops and we had a car so were able to drive easilÿ to beaches and attractions around athens. We will definitely go back again. Thanks.

  • The apartment is on a great location very close to tram station across from a park and with great view. It was comfortable to stay there

  • Helena and Vassilis were an absolute delight to work with! My fiance and I truly appreciated the opportunity to hire a car through these hosts for our arrival and departure. They are also extremely friendly people, and Helena was fantastic about quickly responding to my questions (and I had quite a few!).

    The apartment is located in a central and safe neighborhood. It looked even better than the beautiful pictures online! The bathrooms are spacious and the seating space is perfect. Helena and Vassilis left easy to read instructions throughout the house which we found to be very helpful. There was even a massage chair and a back inversion table which were wonderful after our long days of sightseeing!

    We HIGHLY recommend this property, and are thankful to have worked with Helena and Vassilis!
