About Maria or Anthony Lamberis

Maria is a retired educator, Tony is a semi-retired attorney who is still busy with some cases.

We purchased this property for its location to the center of Athens, and easy access to the beaches. The Metro is 5 fast stops to Syndagma - center of the city - we also liked to be near the antiquities so when our family and friends visit they have easy and fast access to them.. The tram is near Syndagma where it can take you to the numerous city beaches in the summer.

I also was a part time travel agent and can help travellers with their holiday plans to islands and greek villages.

We love travelling but understand comfort.

We live in Michigan 7 months out of the year and reside in South Africa, and Greece the rest of the time. We also have a 2nd home 2 hours away in a village high on a mountain where it is breezy and you can breath fresh mountain cool air. We go there often and also rent it out.

Maria or Anthony Lamberis purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Maria or Anthony Lamberis chose Athens

Our property has an open living space between Large entrance, living room and dining room. It is a wide space to feel comfortable. It is extremely spacious - 1300 sq. ft. Read some of our reviews to get a better idea as to why this property over others. Have a look at the youtube link as well.

What makes this apartment unique

the location is great, near the center of Athens (Syndagma), 7 minutes away on the Metro from the apartment. The local tram, near Syndagma takes you to the numerous beaches of Athens. The neighborhood is safe, and has some of the best restaurants in the city They are very reasonable, and authentic Greek cuisine. That was one of the reasons why we love it here. Live like a local. Buy fresh produce from the farmer's market down the road.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick note to let you know what a great time Rebecca and I had in Greece.  Your property is truly wonderful.  Very close to the metro - which we used frequently and so many great cafes - we took advantage of it all.  Eleni is a truly wonderful ambassador for your place.  Eleni was beyond helpful and we felt perfectly “looked after”.  Not too much and not too little….she is a delight!



We ventured out to Santorini and had a remarkable couple of days out there.  Everything was superb. It was a remarkable experience for me - one whom has been to Europe several times - to see it through the eyes of an 18 year old who is on her first European adventure.



Thank you for being a part of this trip - all the info and the suggestions.



Greece will be in our travel plans in the years ahead.

A Oasis of hospitality and Space

  • 5 of 5

Spacious apartment in a great location. You get a real Greek hospitality and experience. Near a large park to sit and watch the local life while you enjoy a great meal or just a coffee.

We spent 6 nights at the apartment, and enjoyed ourselves immensely here. I wish we had been able to stay longer, as we loved this apartment. The owner, Maria, is a terrific Lady, who gave us over the top information. She sent us maps and instructions in advance, so it was easy to find the apartment, she also gave us great tips about the neighborhood and Athens in general. Her agent lives below the apartment (separate entrance), who was available at all times. Walked us around the neighborhood on our first day.

We loved the neighborhood; a short walk to the metro station, and close to all the major bus lines. Lots of grocery stores, bakeries and cafes nearby, even a child's playground. It was nice not to be in the heart of “tourist” Athens, yet close enough to all the attractions.

The apartment is lovely! Very spacious, well furnished, exactly as described. The air conditioners worked extremely well, so if you are here during the hot summer months, you’ll be assured of a cool oasis in the city. Complimentary wi-fi access and even free cell phone to make local calls, or call a taxi.

I highly recommend this apartment, and I will stay here again on my next visit to Athens. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this establishment. Clean apartment, close to Metro. Metro close to everything. Within minutes we were at the Parthenon entrance, the Acropolis Museum and walking from there to Plaka and Monastiraki.

Maria recommended a taxi company she uses to pick us up from the airport. Our plane was delayed 2 hours and he was waiting for us to take us home. God send!!! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Comfy Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely experience

What a nice experience we had few weeks ago. It was our first trip to Greece and we were very skeptical about the trip in a foreign country.

We contacted the owner, and she made us feel confident about our trip. She forwarded numerous emails about things to do and places of interest, besides the obvious sites we had planned to visit.

She also had a private taxi who spoke English and took us everywhere we wanted to go. Prices were the same as any taxi, but he made it 100% easier.

The house and neighborhood was exactly as it is described in the web.

Clean, spacious, wonderful local neighborhood and great reasonable restaurants. The Metro was very convenient to go everywhere. Our taxi driver took us at further places we wanted to visit. He was only a phone call away. Super convenient.

We felt safe and lucky to have found this great jewel in a foreign country.

Thank you!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This site only allows a rating of 5 stars but I give this apartment 10 stars!! The unit was exactly what the owner presented in both the photos on the VRBO site as well as in the phone discussion we had. I cannot say enough about the hospitality we received from the owner, her agent & the driver the owner connected us with!! This trip was a graduation present for my daughter and we had the time of our lives!! Maria gave us so much helpful information before we arrived that we felt comfortable navigating ourselves all over Athens! The metro/bus station was a quick 5 minute walk through an absolutely adorable neighborhood and there's a super market & tons of great coffee shops too 😊 We fell in love with the apartment, the beaches, the food, the islands, the food & of course the shopping!! Athens and all the gorgeous sites are a quick metro stop away and the metro is super easy to use. I would HIGHLY recommend this destination and staying at this apartment. This apt. was extremely clean and has everything that two people or a family would need. I have to extend a huge thank you to the owner and her amazing team for making our first visit to Greece incredible!! We will return 🇬🇷🌞⛱

FANTASTIC APARTMENT IN THE CITY

  • 5 of 5

This was such a delightful vacation.

The apartment was clean, very comfortable and very close to everything we wanted to do and see. Maria even gave us a taxi number to call to pick us up from the airport. This started our vacation on the right foot from the start.

The apartment is walking distance to the metro that only took us minutes to go to the Parthenon, Plaka, Monastiraki and the center of Athens. She also recommended things to do, and places to eat. She made our vacation more meaningful.

The agent was always there to assist in everything we needed. She was a wealth of information too.

We stayed in three separate places in Europe and this place was the best organized to assist us.

We highly recommend this extraordinary place to stay.
