Worst homeaway ever

  • 1 of 5

First off i want to let everyone know that kurt and gina seem like very nice people, but there is also something very odd about them.

First off the Villa is NOT IN ATHENS so it is falsely advertised, the villa is in a village called Vari which is 30mins away from athens, and is probably a 20euro taxi ride each way with only one bus that can get to athens which is a 15min walk to the bus stop. On multiple occasions kurt and gina made it seem like the villa was in the heart of athens which was a lie. Next i honestly believe that kurt and gina live in the villa, the villa had clothes in the closet, personal items in the bathrooms even baby pictures in the bedrooms.

Now to the condition of the villa itself, the villa is full of ants, totally outdated, the furniture is discolored thast how old it is. The Towels have stains on them and, how could i forget kurt also doesnt allow you to flush toilet paper down the toilet paper, you must put it in a doggy bag due to the toilets inability to handle the paper which is gross.

During my stay at Kurt and gina's villa i felt like i was part of a scam as kurt told us that ubers and taxis didn't work in vari but he always had a person who was able to drive us wherever we need to go between 130-160 euros while the taxis and ubers costed about 10-20 euros.

Dont get me wrong im not bashing like i said in the beginning of the review i think kurt and gina are nice but a little odd and i feel like my group and i got ripped off

Owner's Response: Mr, Jean Baptiste Thank you for the compliment that we are nice people, and thank you for showing a picture of your self before you even come here if you would we would not have this problem first of all, If you look and read the head line it says on our advertising it says Villa in Athens, Vari, Varkiza and if you reading it is 5 min to the beach and 30 min to Athens and 15 min from the airport so figure you seemed to be little bit educated easy to look at the map like everybody else is doing I'm sorry that you are so unhappy, when it comes to the villa we have not lived there for 3 years because it's booked 300 days out of the year I'm sorry if you saw a picture of our son in one of the 6 bedrooms, maybe if you was looking in some other plat forms you can see at least 85 5 stars reviews and I understand now why you can not book from this sites we live and learn everyday don't we Mr Trump lover Lol....... Now you asked for airport transfer for all your people at the same time so I arrange a minibus 10 people the cost was 80 Euros you find anything cheaper you could have booked it but I did it for you Like I do with 90% of my guests, then you also came in 3 hrs late with no extra charge, and then you wanted to go to the center of Athens at 10 pm to GAZI down town Athens I arrange a bus for you to bring you there and back at 3 am normaly after 12 is a double charge and the next day I also arranged a half day tour in Athens for you and your group for 10 people for 160 Euros and then the same day in the afternoon you have booked by your self a sunset cruise for 10 people for 120 EUROS per person =1200 Euros for a 4 hrs cruise and it was not even a pivate sail boat, and i never said that UBER or taxis is not working there you had the home phone and the taxi numbers who would cost you 25 Euros to go to Athens for 4 people so I arrange it for you for 120 Euros for 10 people so take a taxi there and back would have cost you for 10 people 210 Euros at 3 am, And Mr know it all 90% of the houses or Hotels in Greece you can not put paper in the toilets I'm sorry, I'm born in Sweden and also lived in the USA for 30 years so yes it is hard to get used to it but thank god you where only here for 4 days so you did not had to deal with that any more And I'm sorry you feel you get riped of you staying in a Villa with 6 bedrooms with 10 people for 175 Euros per night you must be living for free in the USA in one of OBAMAS apartments Hope to see you next time in Greece

Nice spacious home with welcoming hosts

  • 4 of 5

This villa was nice and spacious, with enough beds to sleep 14 of us on our family reunion in Greece, my two kids were excited about the cute kids room in the basement and the starry ceiling lights. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.

Totally at home...

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had. The house is very comfortable with lots of space (we were two families of four). Kurt and Gina took such good care of us, recommending activities and helping us with ANY question. They even took time to take us shopping and give us a brief tour of the area! If you are looking for a get-away with a little of everything, this is it - beach, lake, sight-seeing, sailing...

Thank you, Kurt and Gina, for opening your (second) home to us! All the best and perhaps we will see you soon!

Great beach and Athens location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, beautiful views. Large, spacious home with plenty of space. Kurt and Georgia are kind, considerate hosts and provided us with all the information we needed to get around Vari as well as Athens. They helped us book a day long cruise to 3 near-by islands and were there to welcome us with traditional Greek food and drink as well as see us off. Just truly wonderful people!

Great stay in a little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this Villa in Vari Varkiza with my wife my sister her husband and our children last summer. I get known about this wonderful place from my friends in Sweden. This Villa was so safe for our children and we really feld like we were in our home. Clean, big bedrooms, studio with extra kitchen, yard for the children and for us,l air condition in all the rooms, sunny and very nice decorated. We had great moments in the most famous beach of Varkiza named Yambanaki and lots of fun and sports with our children. We tasted the Mediteranian food in the great restaurants which are right on the beach, beside a big children park with rides. We saw the zoo with the wild animals park and the sea life in one place that is only 20min from the Villa. Our hosts Kurt and Gina guided us at the Poseidon Temple, Acropolis and Herodion Theater.

Around the Villa we had lots of fun in the Tennis Club, Surfing Club, Basketball Courts football and Spa center. This sunny and wonderful viewing Villa is really great for family's and this place is a small Paradise for children,plus our dog was allowed and we were so happy to have all our family with as.

Kurt's and Gina's hospitality was perfect. They are gentle, friendly,helpful, they are really very nice people.

Thank you Kurt and Gina and we will see you soon

The best ever and ever

  • 5 of 5

Hi Kurt and Georgia i am so happy to see your property listing in to Homeaway.

I want to say to all my friends who are viewing this property that i had a really great time with my company of 8 persons in this wonderful Villa last summer.

This home has everything you need, its very clean, nice decoration,the beach is wonderful and the Hosts are the best. Their hospitality was 5 STAR! Everything we asked for Kurt and Gina were there. We travelled to Athens Vari which is a paradise like a Greek Island to celebrate my husbands birthday. And there we had a big surprise! The host Kurt Grunnan is one of the most popular singer video jokey all around Europe. So he did a special party for us on the roof garden that i will never forget in my life.He sang the most popular songs that everybody knows so we were singing and dancing with him the whole night under the moon light.I love you Kurt and Gina and we will be back with some friends in September.See you soon Anastasia.
