“Splendid, warm, more than we wished or hoped for”
Reviewed July 8, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

person found this review helpful

May 3-7, 2011 An absolutely wonderful experience. Three bedrooms, 3 baths, living room, eat-in kitchen, computers, telephones (and the accompanying service); on & on & on. Everything in the description was exactly as described. What wasn't listed was the complete set of instructions, directions and loving care that accompanied our visit. There is no way to describe the care that Carole and Basil extended to us - 3 young at heart couples. The topper was asking, "What is the extra key for?" and finding ourselves on the roof one night gazing at an unobstructed view of the Acropolis!

This is a review so now to the basics. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms were spotless and the shower, tub, sinks, toilets all worked perfectly. Towels, linens and a welcome "goody" basket were waiting. The location is accessible to restaurants, sights, and transportation. I do recommend this vacation apartment. The only drawback was that we had to leave. This is a private apartment be prepared for not having the services of a hotel. It is not what we wanted anyhow.

“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed May 8, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We stayed in the Lykavittos View apartment. It was incredible. It seemed newly renovated and furnished. It was large and roomy with several lovely balconies. It was nice to sit out and eat breakfast outside. It was stocked with everything imaginable... full cooking items, Greek movies and music, a laptop, umbrellas, nice toiletries, and more. There was a wonderful welcome basket to greet us. The best part was the hospitality of the owners. They weren't in Athens at the time, but were easy to contact and gave us great recommendations on local food joints, things to do, and more. Carol even went as far as making reservations for us for a perfect Easter dinner....top, personal service. It was great to stay in walking distance to everything, but not be in the "touristee" area. It was nice to stay in a place where Greeks live. Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.

“Didn't want to came home.”
Reviewed April 7, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Comfy beds, newly decorated, and very convenient with everything you need. We were lucky enough to have Carole in town. We went to Greece for the first time and every question we had was answered with a phone call to her.If you love to cook the kitchen is quite workable and everything you need is there. I mean everything. I feel like I have family in Greece.

“Great base for exploring Athens”
Reviewed March 28, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Stayed here with friends for a long weekend in Athens. Nice flat with well kitted-out rooms, clean and tidy, and with a 'welcome basket' to tide us over. Excellent views over Athens from the roof terrace on the top floor. Would definitely recommend this place.

A word of warning though for UK visitors, the price is in Euros, but paid in US Dollars, so there is essentially a double conversion charge!

“First trip to Athens...great people, very welcoming”
Reviewed February 21, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

We had an amazing time. The apartment was in a great location. It was everything we were looking for in our stay; walking distances to main sites, shops, and restaurants.

“Fantastic Place in Athens”
Reviewed February 15, 2011 for a stay in September 2010

Carol and Basil were the owners and our hosts at the Athens Penthouse we stayed at for a week in September 2010. She was from Chicago, and Basil was from Athens. They spoke wonderful English, and gave fabulous recommendations for where to go and places to eat. It was great to have someone help us in a city that was totally unfamiliar to us. They arranged for our trips to and from the airport, a walking tour with our own guide, and a day trip with a van and driver to Corinth and surrounding cities.

Our party consisted of us (the parents) and our two grown children and their spouses. There were three bedrooms that were very separated from each other. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, and the living/dining/kitchen area was open, surrounded by a wall of windows to enjoy the view.

The kitchen was very well supplied, and when we arrived, there was a large, delicious basket filled with fruits, breads, jams, drinks, and many other goodies. We were just a few blocks from a wonderful farmers’ market and walked there to stock up on things we needed while we were there. Incredible watermelon!

But let us tell you about the view! We climbed up a circular staircase to a rooftop terrace that had amazing views! We felt like we were on top of the world looking at this amazing city, including the Acropolis and other major monuments. The terrace had very comfortable overstuffed furniture to enjoy a drink in the evening or just relax after a long day sightseeing.

We loved staying in the city, yet living in a “neighborhood.” Instead of feeling like a tourist and staying in a high-rise hotel, we enjoyed the feeling of living among Athenites! In every aspect, it was a great experience for us - thank you Carol and Basil!
