A Bait and Switch Business VRBO

  • 1 of 5

The home is in a good location. We made the reservation and paid for it before arrival for 3 adults and 2 children. When we arrived, they had the reservation for 2; after we showed them the reservation they agreed and apologized for the mistake. They then had to provide more bedding At the end of the stay, The property manager demanded another 100 euros (20 euros per person) when we were checking out. They also would not give us the address of the home before arrival; we were required to use there taxi service from the airport that would take to the home for an additional fee. The taxi driver is nice and not associated with the rental company but I can see the rental company takes a cut of the taxi drivers fee. Most of all, the experience of raising the rate after you move in and telling you at check out makes the vacation experience sad. I would not recommend staying here. I am a Vacation Rental Home owner of multiple properties and would not treat any of my guest in this way. Please beware if you decide to use this property there will be more fees than they advertise.

Perfect location and beautifully decorated. Looks exactly like the pictures. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property couldn't be any better as far as the ability to walk to Everything! The Acropolis, Agoura, museums, grocery store, ATMS, transportation, shopping, and more restaurants/cafes than you can imagine.

The apartment shares a common courtyard area that is welcoming and open to the sky. Lovely flowers and comfy furniture provided a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee. There were 4 of us (2 couples) sharing the apartment. The kitchen was small but provided everything we needed. It had really one true bedroom and a loft with a sofa/trundle bed. The loft was pretty private, but no closet or storage area for clothes. The one bath was modern and quite sufficient with a clothes washer included. The apartment was a separate unit from the other apartments and therefore felt more like a separate house!

I asked Panos if he could arrange transportation for us from the airport and he arranged to have Cristos meet us with a sign with our name on it and a taxi large enough to accommodate 4 people and all of our luggage. We enjoyed our ride with Cristos so much, that we arranged for him to take us sightseeing during our stay. One day we went to Delphi and another day he took us to the Temple of Poseidon. Cristos was very knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. Be sure to ask Panos to arrange your transfer with Cristos, you won't be disappointed.

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this beautiful apartment.

Perfect for exploring!

  • 5 of 5

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 enjoyable stay!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Well appointed apartment within easy walking to major tourist sites

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great place--fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

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.
