A central location to historical sites in Athens!

Luke & Jennifer Starr were terrific hosts. They were very responsive to every email inquiry made prior to arrival, gave great directions for taking the metro to their home and met us at the station for the approximately 5 block walk to their home. They live upstairs and were always available to answer our questions. They showed us the local supermarket, restaurant and coffee shops and provided great advice for getting to the Alimos marina for the next part of our trip after Athens. The house was within walking distance to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Roman Agora, restaurants and everything we planned to see as well as having easy access to the metro. The house was as described and perhaps it was our North American ways but we did find both the beds and the living room furniture uncomfortable and the 2 burner stove did not seem to work well. That said it was a safe neighbourhood and close to everything.
Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and will certainly check out the cooker. Sorry that you were not as comfortable as our guests of the last 2 years have all lead us to believe; guess it might be that North American thing...

We enjoyed meeting you all both in Athens and Agistri.

With thanks for your feedback, always room for improvement.

Best wishes,

Luke and Jennifer

Was exactly what we needed! The place was clean, had all the facilities needed (laundry, kitchen, etc.). Great location - close to the metro, and also close to historical sites. Luke was very welcoming and hospitable not only on our arrival, but throughout our stay. If we had any questions, he was happy to answer. Would highly recommend!
Owner's Response: Megan, thank you so much for your kind review. I am glad you all had such a good stay at Athens House and that you all found everything worked so well for you. Kind regards Luke Starr

This is the second year in a row I stayed at Athens House and I had a great time. The house is set up wonderfully for a group and it's in a great location. It was only a short walk wherever we wanted to go and the metro station is really close too. The owners of this property are really nice and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this house if you are planning a trip to Athens!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to send us a review again and thank you for coming back to Athens House, we were so pleased to see you. We look forward to the next visit. Regards Luke and Jennifer Starr

We had a wonderful stay in Athens at this holiday rental. The house was very clean and all the facilities were very nice. We were a large group so it was difficult to find a place in Athens but this house fit us very comfortably. The owner, Jennifer, was so friendly and was able to answer any questions we had. She gave us all the info we needed to have a fun trip around Greece. We were in the perfect location close to historic sites and the metro. I would highly recommend this house for future visits to Athens. We had a wonderful experience staying there and I know future guests will as well.

We stayed at athens house during our trip to athens in August. It is a beautiful, cool, typically Greek house that is based right in the city centre. It is in a perfect location for tourists as it is so close to all the main attractions. When we arrived the rooms were beautifully prepared ready for our stay, the air conditioning had even been put on ready for our arrival. A lovely touch! We loved the cool, outdoor space! There was a lot of information available to us about things to see and do while we were there. The property itself is perfect, it is spacious and comfortable and has everything you would need during your stay. Its much better than staying in a hotel where the rooms are small and the service is impersonal. It is really good value for money. A special thanks to Jen Starr, the owner, who made our stay very special and memorable! Starr by name, star by nature!!!!
Owner's Response: Glad you all enjoyed yourselves,anytime!


Best regards,
Jennifer

Located within Athens Historic Centre, easy walking distance to the Acropolis, Museums, Markets, Plaka, Monastiraki and most of historic Athens. Keramikos Metro and Thiseon Train Station are both very close by.

With the best of both worlds in central Athens. The convenience of being close to all of Athens' major sites and a home to call your own, away from the hustle and bustle. yet just 20 minutes walk from the Acropolis.

Ours is a truly unique experience living in spacious comfort in a private house right in the historic centre of Athens.

The perfect base from which to explore.
