“Perfect base for exploring Atica...”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This was my first booking directly to owner... I had doubts, but when you do business with Mrs. Carole you are with No 1 in business. Everything she offered, explained, is true and very helpfull. The apartment is great, with all you need to feel that you are just at home. Very spacious balcony with lovely furniture... Clean, elegant, nice beds... everything! And you will find a lot of usefull tips, maps and books just waiting for you to make a perfect plan for exploring Greece. I liked the Pangrati area, with a lot of shops, restaurant, farmer markets... but you have a pleanty of peace when you need it.
Thank you Carole for a great memories from Athens!

“Perfection: wonderful apartment for family Christmas trip”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

After viewing numerous apartments online, we narrowed down to two apartments in Athens and selected 'Athens First' (the other apartment was with the same owner). From our first step in the apartment, we knew we'd made the right choice. It was the perfect size for our family to spread out and to celebrate Christmas. The three bedrooms had comfortable beds and plenty of storage. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking, including the special touches of spices (rarely found in apartment rentals), US-type plugs for electronics, a wonderful balcony with a table for outdoor dining as well as a comfortable couch and chairs to sip a hot coffee and enjoy the sunshine in Athens in December. There is a washer and dryer in the apartment, which was a huge plus as we were traveling with kids. There is also an elevator, which is not always the case with European apartment rentals. The location is great; a residential neighborhood with grocery shopping and bakeries and restaurants all within a few blocks, easy transportation to the main sights (we walked everywhere, though--the Agora and main shopping districts aren't that far).
One of our bags didn't arrive on time, so Nadia, the local manager, received it and brought it to the apartment while we were out. Having such an attentive and helpful manager onsite is another major plus. Best of all, Carole adds a personal touch with excellent suggestions for restaurants, take out (for those nights when you are too tired to go out!), and activities for kids and grown ups. We are already planning to return to Greece and to stay in this lovely apartment!

“Centrally located Apartment with all amenities”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We were a family of four with two grown children ages 23 and 26. Rather than pay the price of 3 hotel rooms we opted for this lovely 3 bedroom apartment. Carole, the owner, thought of everything to make our stay more enjoyable. She arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport and take us to the apartment. This eliminated any stress with having to deal with our luggage, taxis and public transportation. We found that Carole provided many amenities to welcome us and to make our stay comfortable. There were two pitchers of water in the refrigerator; two bottles of wine; a basket full of goodies;, free phone calls to the US (yes FREE); maps and directions to local shops and stores; and, most convenient, she had a power cord with plug adapters so we could charge our cell phones! We went to the Farmer's Market on Tuesday morning and bought delicious fruits and vegetables. We walked no more than a block to get our bakery goods and groceries. We found a coffee shop near our apartment where the young lady knew how to make lattes. Every night we went to the rooftop and enjoyed the lights from the Acropolis. We sat on the huge balcony and played games and ate our breakfast and lunch. It was great experiencing the life of a typical Greek suburb. On our first day we walked to the old Olympic Stadium. It is a beautiful site and a reasonable walk. We caught a bus to Plaka and Syntagma. We took a taxi back to the apartment for $5 EUROS. We also took a taxi to and from the Acropolis. The uphill walk to the Parthenon is not bad (avoid the horse drawn carriage and its $30 EURO fee for a five minute ride). Overall, we highly recommend this apartment. You will not be disappointed.

“Acropolis View L - great apartment, great host”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This review is for the new apartment, Acropolis View L, where we stayed in May, 2013. The apartment is very spacious, clean, modern, and comfortable. The view is magnificent: the Acropolis and Aegean Sea are right in front of you if you walk out to the enormous veranda that wraps around the apartment. Carole is an invaluable hostess. Meeting her was worth the trip. Our plans had changed due to a family emergency and we arrived to Athens without any idea where we are going to go and what to see. On our arrival Carole spent almost 2 hours with us planning every detail of our stay. She immediately arranged for a driver and a guide, worked out a detailed walk around Athens and had tons of recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants. People she works with - driver Nick, housekeeper Nadia, guide Mariza - are highly professional and knowledgeable. We are especially grateful to Nick who took us on a day trip to Delphi and another one to Argolith and also from and to the airport. Nick is very tactful, sincere, modest, and fun to be around. Athens will forever stay in our memory as a hospitable and friendly city because of Carole and the people we met thanks to her. THANK YOU, CAROLE!

“Great Apartment, Good Location = Great Fun”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We were three women staying at the Athens First apartment in early April. We loved the apartment - it felt very much like home. It had everything we needed, was comfortable. It made for a good home base to explore the city of Athens. We loved the veranda - though the weather was too cool to use it much.

Carole was great to deal with - and we absolutely loved the people she hooked us up with - Nikos took us on several day trips/tours and couldn't have been a better host/guide/tavel guide, our cooking class with Evie in the apartment was a highlight of our trip.

Our trip to Athens was definitely enhanced by staying at this apartment - feeling like we experienced more of the culture and absorbed more of what it means to live in Greece than we would have staying at a hotel.
