Overview

Central Athens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 rooms, one with a double bed and a living room-bedroom that sleeps 3.

Vanna's elegant place is ideally located in the heart of Athens but away from the business area, 1 metro stop to the main down-town square, Syntagma, and 2 stops for the Acropolis and other main sights. Next to Caravel Hotel and Hilton area, 5 min. from University campus. Touristic down-town area is also accessible on foot in 30 min.for the athletic souls and not only. Direct metro line from the airport.The beaches and ports are accessible by public transportation, such as tram, metro, x-press-bus, which you can catch at a nearby station. Everything you need for a convenient and comfortable stay is at your feet. In Kaisariani area, there are coffee shops, restaurants, 2 children park, a winery shop, bakery, super-market, all just around the corner.Vanna's place features wood floors, cabinets and furniture that makes the atmosphere warm and cozy. Light blue color and pictures of greek places on the walls will take you away to white pebbled or sandy beaches, crystal clear water and blue skies, the colors of Greece. In the sunny balcony, enjoy your breakfast or any of your favorite meal. At your arrival some wine, fruit,snacks will definitely make your day or night.

For better knowledge of the area you can see reviews for Caravel and Hilton Hotels in Athens.

I want other people to enjoy the sun,explore the archaeological sights and everything my beautiful country has to offer without having to pay a fortune.

About Owner/Property Manager

We are Spyros, Vanna,George and Helena our 15 and 12y. 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

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Central Athens

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. A nice cozy apartment with all the amenities one needs. We stayed there with a family of 5 (were charge only for 4 people!) and had plenty of space. We liked the location on a quieter street in a nice neighborhood with bakery and supermarkets just around the corner. Vanna is a very nice and helpful host who even picked us up from the metro station when we arrived with our all luggage. We hope to back some day!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and exactly what we had hoped for our stay in Athens. The owner/host was super helpful and friendly. Public transport was easy to use and relatively close. Parking was fairly easy. Everything worked , plenty of hot water and heat. Great restaurants within a 5 minute walk, a quiet coffee shop around the corner, and THE best bakery ever right outside the entrance. If we ever go back to Athens we would confidently stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello lovely couple from Texas. Thank you so much for your sweat words. I enjoyed having you as my guests. The only thing is that the shop around the corner was not a bakery, was a pastry shop. They told me you were getting baklava every day. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay in my apartment, I really hope to see you again some day, come back for more baklava. The owner, Vanna

We stayed two weeks at Vanna's place. Well,conveniently equipped apartment. With a two-7day pass,transportation was no problem(221,224,250 bus and metro) no need to take taxis. Friday open market on next block was great. Enjoyed so much fresh foods. Highly recommend for stay. Above all English speaking Vanna is so nice.

excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Vanna's apartment 4 nights in mid October and really enjoyed it. The apartment has everything you need to feel at home: confortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, good hot water pressure for the shower and washing machine. It is clean and well maintained. The neighbourhood is very nice and safe , we walked everywhere at all hours, only 10 minutes to the subway or 30 minutes to Syntagma Square. Vanna is a wonderful host, she offered to help with our planning of the trip and gave us good advice when we arrived. Thank you.

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.
