Fully renovated luxurius apartment with big balcony(20m²) and private parking
- english, greek
Hello, We are Yannis and Rena, "fellow travelers" for the last twenty years. Three years ago we decided to do something that we love very much, through HOMEAWAY. The Greek word "ΦΙΛΟΞΕΝΙΑ=hospitality" is of a particular importance in the Greek culture. It’s a compound word from "ΦΙΛΩ=LOVE" and "ΞΕΝΟΣ=GUEST " and refers to the act of nestling and caring of a guest by the host. It was an institution for the ancient Greeks to welcome and take care of the guests at their home. They believed particularly in the idea of hospitality and regarded it as a moral duty and a sacred rule of the gods (Xenios Zeus was the protector of the guests). They offered them bath and sleep and they greeted them with gifts. The host and the guest were linked with friendly ties, which where inherited to their descendants. This is our inheritance. It would be an honour to host you in our homes.
Yannis&Rena purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Yannis&Rena chose Ano Patisia
I was brought up in this neighborhood. It is a residential area that is very safe with everything that you might need within walking distance(supermarkets, bakeries, coffee shops, fruit markets, traditional Greek restaurants, pharmacies, commercial shops, banks, etc). While it is central, it is very quiet and safe. The main advantage is that you will need about 15 minutes to get anywhere in the historical centre while you are just 500 metres away from National Road. Through metro network (Ag. Eleftherios) you can go easily from the one side of the city to the other in order to see every corner and aspect of Athens. Acharnon and Patission streets are 300 metres from home. From there, buses leave on a very frequent base for Monastiraki, Thissio and Constitution Square as well as to North (Kifissia) and South (Piraeus). The daily travel card for all means of transportation costs 4,5€ and the five-day card costs 9€ which we can supply on your behalf upon request. If you have a car then the National Highway is 500 meters away with easy access to both directions (North and South) while Acharnon and Patission streets (300 meters range) will take you downtown in 10 minutes.

Couldn't imagine a better place
The hosts were definitely super hosts! Communication was amazing from beginning and throughout. Yannis even offered to stay in touch if I had any questions after I left. There was a MA maison mug personalized. Very sweet touch. It was so comfortable and like a home away from home. The apartment was perfectly located just a few stops from the main centre. It was a great local neighbourhood. Five star all around!
Getting recommended by your guests gives you the strength to continue your effort in providing a complete experience. Regarding the neighborhood you couldn't be more accurate. It is the closest spot to go in the city center while it is very safe and quiet with everything that you might need just a breath away. You can eat real greek food where locals do outside the touristic spots. Comparing price with what you get Ma Maison is at the top. Καλή αντάμωση(until we meet again)!!
Honeymoon in Athens - Flawless
My wife and I spent three days in Athens while beginning our honeymoon tour of Greece. BOTH of Yannis & Rena’s Ma Maison & Ma Maison 2 are PHENOMENAL. The photos do not do them justice - they’re both so perfectly located - a 2 minute walk to the Metro offering access to the entire city. Both locations are in a perfect area, offering a combination of authentic Athens with amazing food choices, local culture and plenty to experience - yet there was enough English around to comfortably make our way around.
As for Yannis & Rena. We cannot say enough about them - they made our entire process incredibly easy. They also set up extra transports for us, and were always in touch.
Both of these properties will give you everything you need and more. The updated ammentities were so lovely, and the locations even better.

The apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious for two people. We liked everything about it.
Thank you for your beautiful words. It was a pleasure meeting you. You are always welcome to stay in our homes.
Καλή αντάμωση Loren and Diana (until we meet again)!!!!
First of all, our host Yannis was terrific, and arranged to have a taxi pick us up from our Viking cruise ship. When we arrived at his property, it was even better then the pictures on the VRBO listing. It was immaculately clean, and he thought of everything a renter might need, down to shampoo, body soap, kitchen items were complete, including coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apples, toast and honey. He spoke excellent English and was constantly available to us via Whatsup App the full 4 days that we were there. The neighborhood is completely safe, walking distance to the grocery store, as well as many restaurants. His TV included English speaking channels, WIFI and a stereo system. This has been one of our many VRBO experiences, and we highly recommend this unit for visitors to Athens.
Getting recommended by your guests gives you the strength to continue your effort in providing a complete experience. Our goal is to go above and beyond the accomodation. Thank you Don and Martine for recognizing all these. Καλή αντάμωση (until we meet again)!!! Yannis&Rena
