  • We had a wonderful experience at this apartment. Nicoletta was easy to work with, her assistant Vanessa was helpful with maps of the subway and neighborhood. It was me, my husband, 22m old son, and my parents, and it was great to have all the extra space for our son to run around. The apartment was in a fantastic location, super easy to get to. Nice big balcony for my dad to have his smokes. The only thing I would say is that the carpet in the living room has some minor stains, it's probably from people wearing their shoes in the apartment. We're asian so we didn't wear our shoes in the apt. Carpet could be spot treated, but it's minor.

  • Nicoletta was very prompt in replying to our queries....arranged a pick up from the airport....her assistant Vanessa was very kind in showing us around the locality....the house is in an awesome neighborhood.....centrally (email hidden)ry nicely furnished house ...only thing the room with the bunk bed is smaller than it looks in the photos no space to store anything else, were provided with spare beds instead. Vanessa arranged adapters when asked for. Overall a very good experience will definitely come back.

  • Nicolette was a great host. She replied very quickly and was super helpful. Her assistant met us at the house on time and everything was great with the apartment. Very clean and tidy. Very comfortable beds and everything that we needed.

    The location is perfect. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the main square with the Parliament building and super close to the metro line that takes you directly to the airport. Close by there are lots of great shops and cafes etc.

    I was very grateful for the elevator!

  • We were very fortunate indeed to stay in Nicoletta's gorgeous apartment in Athens. The location is exceptional - it's a great area, with lots of cafes, takeaways & bakeries close, plus it's about 2 minutes down the road to the metro (Evangelismos), from where it is very very straightforward to get to most destinations, including the Acropolis, or there's a cab rank 50m up the road.
    Nicoletta's lovely business delegate Vanessa met us, and was immensely friendly & helpful, even providing us with a map of the area and taking the time to tell us a lot of very useful tourist info. We arrived early and they let us park our bags at the apartment which was a another great bonus.
    The apartment is on the 6th floor, with a working lift and a tiny view of the Parthenon in the distance through the orange trees on the sunny balcony. Nicoletta has a daily cleaner who keeps it immaculate, and it's a pleasure to visit.
    We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone, and would certainly love to return ourselves if we were ever lucky enough to have the opportunity to return to Greece.

  • We had the pleasure to stay in Nicoletta's Athens apartment, and in her Santorini apartment, House Loukia during our recent European holiday. Both her apartments are simply stunning! Everything went smoothly and according to plan. Nicoletta was a wonderful hostess and always very accommodating and helpful.
    Her apartment in Athens was very centrally located and within easy walking distance of everything. We felt very safe and comfortable here.
    House Loukia was a dream come true- we didn't want to leave! The views of the Calderra from our very own private balcony took our breath away. We were SO glad we stayed here! Thanks for everything Nicoletta- it was wonderful to meet you!

  • Spacious, comfortable apartment in great location. It was less than 2 blocks from the Metro station and there were a number of shops, restaurants, markets, and bakeries on the same block as the apartment building. We felt safe walking around the neighborhood - even at night. The well-equipped kitchen made it easy to cook when we felt like it, and the 1-1/2 bathrooms (bathroom + WC) made it easy for our family of four to get ready each morning. It was very convenient to use the apartment's washing machine. (A dryer was also available, but we chose to hang our clothes to dry). After spending the day sightseeing, my husband and kids enjoyed the wi-fi in the apartment. I would have spent much more time on the lovely balcony if the weather had been warmer.

    Nicoletta's assistant was very helpful, friendly, and quick to respond when we contacted her with questions.

  • Athens is a great place , lively n very cozy. Staying at Nicolettas place was a real enjoyable true experience. Living direct in the downtown area in a huge mansion of a really nice sweet interior setting was an unforgettable experience, where can you live in a mansion in downtown in a city like Athens for a reasonable price? I was afraid with some many members of my family, but it fitted perfect.
    She was a very nice host and also her assistant was around us all the time answering questions, organizing and recommending sightseeing's.
    Next year in April 2015 again the same congress and will definitely try to stay here again.

    All the best,

  • Nicolette was such an amazing host. The Dream Penthouse in Athens is exactly what it states, an absolute dream. After booking at the last minute (literally hours before we arrived.), we drove in by car, and easily found the apartment. Nicoletta is such a warm and welcoming host, and even helped negotiate a better parking rate for us at the parking garage directly across the street. We were welcomed by hugs and instantly felt like we were with family. Her apartment was beautifully decorated, and was a perfect stay for our group of 5. The apartment is also across the street from the bus station which you can take to the airport (for only 5 euro I believe) and also a line of taxis, which we easily took at 3am for about 40 euro. Unfortunately we were only able to stay in Athens for 2 days, but without a doubt, we will stay with Nicoletta again as soon as we are able to make it back.

I am from Athens, however I have very close ties with Santorini, as my grandparents were born there and I spent all my summers as a kid in Oia. Nowadays, I live half of the year in Santorini working (email hidden). Furthermore, I had the great opportunity to bit by bit, renovate the traditional houses, that are under the property of my family. Hence, I started renting them out, in order to offer, an authentic Santorinian experience to guests from all around the world! In addition, many years ago, my mother visited the island of Patmos, fell in love with it and decided to buy one and later another one beautiful piece of land, including very old farm houses in ruinous condition, that she slowly but steadily renovated. In this way, our family and numerous friends enjoyed many unforgettable Patmos Easters and summers. Nowadays, I am responsible for the good condition of the houses that I rent out and share the beauty and special ambiance of this island with people from all around the world.
