Guestbook comments from the manager
This apartment was well centered as we could walk almost anywhere. The apartment was very clean and well appointed with all the necessities and then some! Carole has outdone herself with helps and recommendations -and she took care of all the drivers and tours. It was like our very own concierge in Greece!

Thank you Carole for your hospitality!

Who would have thought when I boarded a plane for Greece more than 20 years ago, planning on backpacking through the mountains and then heading north through then Yugoslavia I'd end up making Greece my second home?

But here I am, 20 something years later, running a fabulous Greek vacation rental business with historic homes & penthouses in Athens and traditional Cycladic homes on the island of Tinos, planning Greek travel itineraries and leading small group tours around my adopted homeland and loving the life that I am lucky enough to be living. Of course I did pick up an equally crazy, workaholic Greek husband along the way, as well as a stray Greek animal or two!

Carole Heiman-Kezios purchased this condo in 2003

Although I traveled around Greece for many years, after Basil and I married we started spending more time in Athens - usually staying with his mother. But I wanted a little pied a terre to call my own, and while spending a few months alone in Athens studying Greek I came to know the Pagrati Mets area, which I fell in love with. It's the perfect Athens neighborhood, full of squares (platieas), friendly locals, an outdoor farmers market three times a week - all within walking distance of the historic center and the best museums in Athens!

When Basil and I started looking for a place to call our own in Athens, I'd lived and rented enough Athens apartments to have some ground rules:

1. It must be walking distance (no more than 10 -20 min) to the Acropolis, Syntagma, Kolonaki & the museums.

2. It must have outdoor living space.

3. It must have a view that screams ATHENS. Of course an Acropolis view was first on my list, but the beautiful Cycladic St George church atop Lykavittos Hill is very beautiful as well - so either would do (and both would be smashing!)

4. Not many Americans know about the 'fotagogo' or air shaft that runs through most Athens apartment buildings. It is designed to air out the bathroom and/or kitchen, but also means that you have an early morning symphony from all of the units in your building ... not something I was willing to get used to (I guess I'm a bit of a spoiled American girl deep down)

5. Acceptable paper disposal after use. Yes, more of my spoiled nature came out when I started living 'local' in Athens and discovered that little sign in the bathroom: PLEASE DO NOT THROW PAPER IN THE TOILET (sometimes translated as: Please do not throw paper AT the toilet ....) Regardless, I needed to be able to flush my used paper ... and so, all of our homes offer the unique benefit of being able to flush it down!

Athens and the Acropolis View Beta were fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
After a long absence from Greece, I didn’t know what I to expect, especially with the economic crisis putting a squeeze on the Greek people. As a mother of two young children, I worried in particular about staying in Athens. Would it be safe? To my surprise and delight, Athens was as I remembered and even better. The people were warm, helpful, and hospitable.
The six of us, (4 adults and two children) stayed 3 nights in the Acropolis View Beta Penthouse. The penthouse was clean, spacious, and modern. Carole has thoughtfully equipped it with all the comforts of home (WiFi, air-conditioning, fully stocked kitchen, even a flat iron!). The beds were so comfortable too. It has also several verandas in the unit, but the most amazing one is the roof top veranda that wraps around with spectacular views of the Acropolis and Lykavittos hill. We sat up there every night with a bottle of wine, enjoying the illuminated views of Athens at night. Awe-inspiring!
The location of the Beta Penthouse was within walking to all the major sites in Athens, which is a huge plus in my book. Athens is a wonderful place for walking, taking in the local ambience. Be sure to visit the New Acropolis Museum!
I loved dealing with Carole, the owner, who I found to be helpful, professional, and very kind. In her literature, Carole suggested we visit the farmer’s market “laiki” on Tuesday. What a treat and a sight for our eyes. The vegetables and fruits were aromatic, fresh, and tasted so delicious – not like what we get here in the Los Angeles, and for much less money.
Many thanks to Carole for a wonderful stay in Athens and we look forward to our next stay there. I highly recommend this penthouse!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your stay - it is especially nice to hear from a mom regarding the issue of safety in Athens and as someone who knew the Athens of yesteryear, it's great to know that you found it better than ever!
I'm looking forward to your eventual return - and sharing a glass of wine on the terrace with you!

We loved Athens - thanks to Carole!

This review is for the new apartment, Acropolis View L, where we stayed from May 26 to 30, 2013. The apartment is very spacious, clean, modern, and comfortable. The view is magnificent: the Acropolis and Aegean Sea are right in front of you if you walk out to the enormous veranda that wraps around the apartment. Carole is an invaluable hostess. Meeting her was worth the trip. Our plans had changed due to a family emergency and we arrived to Athens without any idea where we are going to go and what to see. On our arrival Carole spent almost 2 hours with us planning every detail of our stay. She immediately arranged for a driver and a guide, worked out a detailed walk around Athens and had tons of recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. People she works with - driver Nick, housekeeper Nadia, guide Mariza - are highly professional and knowledgeable. We are especially grateful to Nick who took us on a day trip to Delphi and another one to Argolith and also from and to the airport. Nick is very tactful, sincere, modest, and fun to be around. Athens will forever stay in our memory as a hospitable and friendly city because of Carole and the people we met thanks to her. THANK YOU, CAROLE!

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Acropolis View Penthouse Apartment during the week of Thanksgiving 2011. All the reviews are accurate. Carole and Basil thought of everything possible to make our stay comfortable. I stayed in the apartment with two of my teenage children, my husband and mother. The apartment exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect for us. We walked to the Acropolis, Plaka, the New Acropolis Museum and Lycabettus Hill. Since we enjoy walking and the weather was pleasant, we had no problem walking to the sites. There is transportation available for those who need it.

We also enjoyed the immediate neighborhood. There is an extensive street market on the streets behind the apartment on Tuesdays. Everything is available- food, clothes, jewelry, etc. We walked through blocks of tables lined with all sorts of merchandise. There are grocery stores, a pharmacy, a cheese shop and other stores just steps from the apartment. Every restaurant we went to was fabulous. In the apartment and on their private online guest book, Carole provides numerous suggestions for dining in the area as well as sightseeing tips. If you have the opportunity to visit Athens, stay in the Acropolis View Penthouse Apartment or one of the other rentals. We actually originally rented the Athens First Luxury Duplex, but we were upgraded to the Acropolis View. When I return to Athens, I will definitely stay in one of Carole’s rental apartments.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, Leslie and for trusting us to provide you and your family a home away from home in Athens. Basil and I are always happy to hear "when I return to Athens ...." from our guests, since that means we've successfully shared our love of Greece with you!

FANTASTIC VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I just spent five nights in the Acropolis Beta and it is just a fantastic apartment! HIGHLY HIGHLY endorse this is you want a comfortable and lovely place to stay in Athens. Our vacation was so easy and fun because we had a great place to relax, have dinner and drinks on the terrace every night, watch the Acropolis as the sunset--the works. The apartment is full of every convenience we have in the States, and it's in the heart of a cute Athens neighborhood. The owner supplies all kinds of information on where to eat and what to see--and she was fabulous about providing recommendations and answering all our questions. One of the best vacations our family has ever had! Thanks Carole!!
