We loved our stay in Athens! Felt like we were slightly off the beaten path to avoid the sounds of the city but restaurants and sights were just around the corner. Literally! Parthenon is an easy stroll of 20 minutes away via nice walking streets. Usually we tour during the day and then return to our lodging by nightfall and settle in for the night. But here, it was extremely easy to go out, see what we wanted, return to the House for a break and then go out for dinner (or dessert at Full Spoon or Diavlos). It also felt safe which is important to me with children. Lots of people enjoying the evening in a pleasant way. Honestly, it was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had. The subway system is just around the corner but we felt like everything was so close that we decided to walk everywhere. As far as the House itself, it was immaculately clean, plenty of towels (thank you!), fluffy pillows for all, adjustable heating system to keep you warm, wi-fi perfect. We loved the seperate bedroom, large living room and upstairs loft that gave us room to spread out. Only regret is that I wish we had been there for warmer weather to enjoy the enclosed living room-pretty plants and relaxing atmosphere. Perhaps next time!
We had a wonderful experience! We were met at the airport by the taxi driver recommended by the owner. At the apartment, the owner's mom met us and showed us around the place and offered her assistance. We were treated very well. The apartment had the necessities for our family of 4, including 2 young children. The Acropolis, Monastiraki and Plaka districts were all within walking distance. It was just a few minutes to the Thissio metro station, and there was a supermarket and bakery nearby. We recommend this apartment.
We were a family traveling with our children on vacation, and this was a great spot close to the metro and to the Acropolis. The apartment was well equipped with a loft with a sofa and trundle for the kids to sleep in their own space. We mostly ate at the many local restaurants, but were able to keep leftovers and make morning tea and coffee in the compact but functional kitchen. The owner's mother met us to give us the keys as well as an introduction to the apartment. And for hot summer days when we were fm doing a lot of site seeing, the air conditioning felt great!
Elli, Paros' mother, was warm and welcoming. The aprtment was very clean, efficient, and nicely done. Both Elli and Paros were available for what we needed. With all those good things, by far the best feature of the apartment was its location. For the major historical sites, for the Central Market, the apartment was never more than a 10--15 minute walk. Next time back to Athens, it is exactly where we would stay.
We came to Athens to run the Athens marathon on Nov 8th, & booked this place for 6 nights. Its an old house that has been completely refitted into a 2 room apartment. It was perfect for 3 of us - my wife and I took the downstairs bedroom & my sister-in-law slept in the loft upstairs. ( technically its not a bedroom, but its very cozy & can sleep 2). The location was great, we walked all over, (its a nice, safe neighborhood) made the circuit around the Acropolis through Plaka & Monastiraki & back several times - its about 4 km to go all the way around. Thisso metro station is very close by & convenient. There is a bakery, supermarket & plenty of cafes to dine in very close by, as well as an authentic taverna just around the corner, where you buy your lamb chops by the kilo! We even walked back from the Marathon finish at Kalimarmaro stadium to the house. Ellie (Panos' mom) was a wonderful host, she even arranged a day cruise for us to Hydra, Poros & Aegina, and Christos picked us up at the airport, even dropped us early on Sunday morning in Marathon for the race start, and was extremely helpful. Of all the amenities, I found the pocket kitchen most delightful, an entire functional kitchen packaged into a kitchen cupboard sized space. The washer and the drying rack also proved to be handy, to wash all that soaked through race gear. And the wi-fi was flawless. All in all, we had a great stay & I would recommend this place to any one.
I think most people who use VRBO are like us and want a place in the thick of things. This place really fits that description. It is less than 2/10 of a mile, 240 meters, to the Thissio Metro station, a quick walk through a park. Just as close are many very good restaurants. Walk another block and there are more restaurants with a view of the Acropolis, that is beautifully lit at night. We walked all over Athens, averaging 5 miles a day but cabs are waiting near the restaurants and metro, if you don't feel like walking.
The apartment itself is quite lovely and roomy. It is also very clean. There are two units and we were able to stay in one while my in laws took the other. It was great for each of us to have our own apartments but still be close.
Ask the Owner to arrange for Christos to pick you up at the airport. His cab is very roomy and he is a wonderful guide. He also took us to Delphi and Sounio.
