“As if we were at our home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were hosted in the beautiful and quiet home of Stelios & Maika. The house owners are very friendly and full of courtesy and helpfulness. The room is nice and clean. Maika is a superb cook and together with her husband Stelios they make you feel at your own home!

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

Stelios & Maika are incredible hosts! They greeted us at the front door, helped with our heavy bags and led us out to the patio for fresh lemonade, sweets and hot coffee, such a lovely welcome after a long and sleepless night on the ferry. Our accommodations were lovely: large bed with linens and towels. Beautiful tile shower and security door. The neighborhood seemed quite safe we walked around and rode the bus at all hours and never were at all concerned. Central Athens is a different story. The architecture of the house is gorgeous! Stelios had printed maps and highlighted important transportation, shopping and dining features near the home. He printed a similar map for Athens center. We sat and he explained both maps to us and answered all of our questions about getting around, what to do and see, etc. He made clear to us that we could call his cell phone at any time if we got lost, were in any kind of trouble and he would come find us and help. This attention to detail and offer to help made our visit so much more pleasant as we felt confident that nothing could go too wrong.

The food was excellent. We had dinner at the house three times and each time was delightful. More delicious food than we could finish dessert and a 750 ml bottle of good wine for only 10 euro! Each meal had at least one dish that blew me away and I consider myself a bit of a foodie. Pray Maika makes you her wine & octopus dish. Seriously good eats. Much of the produce & herbs are grown in the garden and all is quite fresh and local.

The only drawback I found is that it is time consuming to travel to central Athens. There is a nearby Metro station but it is not yet operating as of September 2012. Getting to central Athens was straight forward: a short walk (~3-4 blocks) and one bus to the metro station but was time consuming (especially waiting for the bus that seemed to keep its own schedule). This is problematic if you want to spend a day sightseeing and then go out to a fancy restaurant or bar. We found ourselves hot, sweaty & tired from sightseeing so we ate and visited a bar. It was fine until to evening crowd started rolling in at which point we felt pretty out of place among to coifed and clean Athenians out to see and be seen. If we had travelled all the way back to the house, I doubt we could have found to motivation to head back out. This would not be a problem if you were to do something near the house then change and head out to the night scene, but we were trying to pack as much as possible in only a few days. Once the metro is running, it should be quick and easy to get anywhere you want to go.
