We are Spyros, Vanna and George, Helena our 14 and 11y. old children. We are both in our 40's. I lived in Los Angeles for many years and I used to teach the English language here in Greece. My husband works for the city Hall and also installs awnings. We bought this apartment as an investment and at first it was rented out by the month. After the last render left we decided to renovate it and turn it into a vacation rental. It took us a long time to fix it and furnish it but it was worth it because it has turned into a cozy getaway that adequately fits our guests' needs. I am so happy that I have started this business because I have the opportunity to meet wonderful people from around the world. I do not even see it as a business, I see myself as a person who can provide tourists a place as a starting point to explore my beautiful city.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2006

I love my apartment. I have personally decorated it thinking how I can give my guests a taste of Greece. For that reason, I have painted it light blue, using wood in kitchen and furniture. I have decorated the walls with pictures of greek islands and put some greek art around on souvenirs. I keep adding things to the place to make my guests stay comfortable. I am here for them and happy to help them in any way I can. They must know that they now have a friend in Athens.

free international calling. Also, Baby crib (cot) available, children's toys, books, boardgames, mostly in English but in other languages too.

This apartment was clean and well maintained. It was a short walk to the Metro, good restaurants, open air market, and cabs and buses. The kitchen was well stocked with necessary utensils and dishes. The bedroom and living room were warm and inviting. The neighbors were friendly. It felt like home!

So Accommodating!!

A group of 4 ladies and I from the US had a change of flight and needed a safe place to stay for just one night. I was able to get in touch with Vanna, who went out of her way to accommodate all 5 of us. What an great place to stay! The location was excellent, as we were able to walk with our luggage (approx. 1 mile) walk from the Metro, and Vanna was waiting for us when we got there - even though it was 1130 at night! We had a wonderful stay and were so thankful to meet such a kind lady. What a wonderful, cozy place for such an inexpensive price!!

Fabulous apartment and host

We were very happy at how cute and clean the apartment was. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils. There was hot water for bathing after turning on the hot water heater. We used the washer to do a load of wash which was very convenient. The bed was comfortable and the shower worked great.
Our host was extremely kind and helpful with explaining in perfect English how to use the Metro, and writing down in Greek the address of the apartment, so we could show the Taxi driver to return to the apartment. The apartment was in a safe neighborhood.
Our host was also very helpful in showing us where the restaurants were, setting up very reasonable massages for us and her hospitality fabulous with meeting her family which gave us a taste of Greek family life.
We would highly recommend this apartment for staying at while in Athens, Greece as it is in a good location, within walking distance to the Metro and especially with the phenomenal help from Vanna during our stay.

Comforts of home

My family and I had a great stay in Vanna's apartment in late September 2013 (5 nights). The apartment was a perfect size for the three of us (2 adults and one infant). The apartment did not have an infant crib for our baby when we initially inquired about the apartment, but Vanna went out of her way to obtain a crib to make sure we would have all the comforts of home. Vanna was an attentive host and made sure everything was perfect with the apartment. We enjoyed the other amenities of the apartment as well, including the full kitchen, washing machine, fast wi-fi, and free international calls. The apartment was a good home base for us to visit the sites of Athens. The Metro was about a 10 minute walk from the apartment and easy to get around. The apartment was also in a good neighborhood with a supermarket, bakery and taverna right around the corner. Overall, our stay at Vanna's apartment was excellent. We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and would stay here again the next time we are in Athens. Thank you Vanna for a lovely stay!

Charming place..highly reecommend!

Charming apartment in a great area of Athens. Our daughter stayed in this apartment from May 6-June 8 inclusive and she loved it! Close to shops, restaurants and easy access to all the tourist attractions as well. A great place for students at the university which is a short distance away and the bus goes regularly. The owner Vanna was very obliging and even took our daughter to shop at a market and sent her home with souvenirs of her stay in Greece. I was very impressed with her being in touch with me and asking if our daughter needed anything to just ask....she also emailed to check to see if she had made it back to Canada OK!!! We have been emailing since our daughter left and have been sharing pics... we look forward to some day going to Greece and we will definitely stay at her apartment....thank you Vanna...I hope we keep in touch!

Except for the city busy day and night life, the area has to offer some nature exploring. In a mile or 2 away there is a forest with a monasteri, a beautiful walk in nature, enjoy a picnic, have your coffee in the fresh air,or just relax. Also,there is Lycabettus Hill with a church on the top offering a panoramic view of the city which is reachable either on foot or bus and a lift that takes you up to the top. Walking to the city center is also very interesting as there are museums,Galleries and the National Garden with animals,children amusement park, an oasis of the down-town area.
