Hi, I am Nikos
I was born in Athens and I have lived my whole life in this city apart of short periods when I lived in several European cities.
I have studied economics in the Kapodistriakon University of Athens.
I am married to Kiriaki and we have two sons, Alex & Mario, both attending University studies in Electronic and in Mechanical Engineering.
Nikos Karipidis purchased this apartment in 2010
"Gorgeous apt. with a fabulous view of Athens from a hilly location. Highly recommended. Very friendly and accommodating owner."

Would you recommend this rental to a friend? Yes
We had a very pleasant stay in Athens. This is one of the nicer apartments you will find in the area. Very comfortable and spacious apartment, spectacular view of the city from the rooftop terrace, and in a safe and convenient location. The apartment is located at the top of a hill, so walking from the shops to the apartment is a bit tiring, but good for the legs. If you have a physical disability, this may be an issue.
We had booked this apartment 6 months in advance of our trip, and Nikos was very helpful along the way. Good, prompt communication, always treated us fairly, and did his best to orient us to the apartment and surrounding restaurants and areas. He arranged transport to/from the airport and offered to hook us up with tours, rental cars, restaurants, etc.
Thanks Nikos for a very nice stay in your beautiful country. We will make a point of returning some day.
Having arranged a transfer with our host Nikos in advance, we arrived at the Athens airport and were met by our driver. We were two couples with luggage and the Mercedes van that we had booked was spacious and very comfortable. The drive to the apartment took approximately half an hour.
We were greeted upon arrival and took the elevator to our top floor apartment. The apartment is modern, clean, spacious and well-equipped. It is very secure and well located in the city. There is an outdoor seating area right off the living room as well as a rooftop terrace that provides a 360 degree view. You can see the Acropolis, the sea and the mountains from here and it is stunning!
Nikos gave us information on transportation, restaurants, tours, the apartment , pretty much everything we could possibly need during our stay here. He was very helpful, even going so far as to pick up groceries and wine and supplies for our arrival when asked since we arrived on a Sunday when the shops were closed.
All in all a lovely apartment that I would certainly recommend.
Wir haben im August 2015 eine Woche in dieser wunderbaren Wohnung gelebt. Sie ist geräumig, hell, supersauber, komfortabel und mit Stil eingerichtet. Drei Klimaanlagen und Außenjalousien sorgen für individuell angenehme Schlaftemperaturen.
Nikos hat uns wie gute alte Freunde empfangen. Alle Zahlungen liefen problemlos und die Kaution war ein Tag nach Abreise erstattet.
Diese Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert für alle, die eine ruhige komfortable Bleibe in Athen suchen. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt.
Dank an Nikos für die schöne Zeit.
Beautiful apartment and a great location. Nikos is a very gracious host and will tell you all about the area upon arrival and give you great suggestions on where to eat, shop and how to get around. The apartment is on a hill which gives you the most amazing views of the city but that also means its a hike down and up to walk to the shops and such. If you could possibly find anything wrong with the apartment Niko will take care of it immediately. There is a great farmers market on fridays, very close to the apartment, that has the best fresh fruit and vegetables.
We had a wonderful experience in Greece/Athens. Nikos was very helpful with all the preparations and communicated quickly to any of our questions. The condo is well furnished with everything you need to make it a nice stay. The view from the rooftop is spectacular. The food in the city was wonderful!! If you are planning a trip to Athens I would have nothing but positive comments about our stay. Of course if you have a walking issues you should be prepared to have the taxi take you up the hill to the condo. It can be a challenge, though we saw plenty of older women walking their way up. Our view was for each time we walked up it the more calories we burned which allowed us to enjoy more of those wonderful greek dishes! :-)
the apartment is well furnished and in a good shape. pictures are equivalent. it is located in a quit residential area. you need a taxi to reach the center or acropolis, approx. 20 minues drive.
nikos offered us to book a transfer taxi from the airport what worked fine. on arrival he asked us if we need a taxi to the airport and we paid 100 €. later we changed our plan and wanted to cancel the taxi announcing the change by SMS 3 days in advance. we never got the money back because he claimed is was too short notice.
Our title 'Amazing View' gives literaly the picture of this property.
The (30kms range) views from the 24h accessible terrace is breathtaking.
It's more like flying over the city in a helicopter.
Acropolis, Piraeus harbour, the sea of Saronic Gulf and the islands Aegina and Salamina are just a few of the visible sights.
The apartment located at the sides of the mot central hill of Athens.
The Attica region
The mainland of Greece forms the southernmost part of the Balkan peninsula, in the north also including parts of the historical regions of Macedonia and Thrace, further to the south narrowing into a 'Greek peninsula' in its own right, including historical Epirus, Thessaly, Boeotia and Attica, and concluding in the separate peninsula of Peloponnese, comprising the historical territories Sparta, Corinth and Argos, all surrounding the peninsula's heartland of Arcadia.
As for Attica, the region is incredibly famous and unique for its breathtaking monuments and museums. A region with great history due to also being the birthplace of the famous philosophers Aristotelis, Sokratis, Aristofanis etc.
So why not come and explore the region for yourself !
The Athens / Nea Kipseli area
The location is 'Nea Kipseli', part of the center circle, which means that if you enjoy walking you'll need about 20 minutes to Omonoia square and through that to Plaka, the old town, the Ancient Market, the Acropolis and lots of other 'must see' monuments.
On the other hand, if you are the type of public transportation, you'll find several different bus lines in 100-150 meters range around the flat, taking to all main points of the city, ex. time by bus to Omonoia square 5-6', Syntagma 10', Mesogion ave 5-6', Acropolis (south side) in 12' etc.
If you are after all a practical type, you'll realize that you can have a call-taxi waiting for you right outside your door and take you to all places mentioned above before you know it, with only a few euros. Taxis are exceptionally cheap in Greece (Omonoia 4 eur., Plaka 6 eur, Acropolis 7 eur, etc).
In a range of 100m there are pharmacy, super market, grocery, bakery, butcher shop, tobacco, food take away, you name it.
As for the issue of safety, you can ask the little children playing out in the street.
In 5 minutes walk, about 300m there is the famous Fokionos Negri street, full of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, clubs and any kind of night amusement.
