The property is set back from the main road and less than 10 minutes from the beach. The apartment we stayed in was equipped and furnished to the highest standard leaving us to want for nothing. There are two bedrooms, one double and a second twin bedded room. We were met by Simos who could not have been more friendly or helpful and who provided us with a bottle of wine on arrival - very welcoming.
Would I recommend this apartment - without hesitation
The apartment is even more attractive than the photographs suggest, everything is new, perfectly clean and nothing is lacking, beds are comfy and once you are placed in one of the deck chairs on the spacious terrace you would stay there forever - only the view of the very close beach convinces you to rise again. So much to the "hardware", but much more important than that are Sandra and Simos, with their warmth, hospitality - I guess New Zealand hospitality must be as overwhelming as the Greek, but I have known only the latter. We were three brothers going on a sailing trip - it is characteristic for the thoughtfulness of Simos, that he told me in an email to Germany, where we should stop on the way from the airport to do do our shopping for the sailing trip - a good recommendation. In the evening they gave us a ride to a lovely restaurant close by where we has gorgeous seafood.
We are looking forward to seeing those two and their place again - a strong argument for sailing from Lavrion again next year!
I always believed that, in the hospitality industry ,a 5 stars establishment should be judged since the moment of the reservation, not just during the stay. Well, in my experience , this is exactly what happened me ! We booked Sandra' view to be near the port of Lavrio the following morning for a 7 day cruise on Celestyal Nefeli. This departure was cancelled by the cruise line : even if the Sandra's apartment rate was non refundable, they where so kind to refund me . Of course I higly appreciate this , worthy of the ( alas forgotten ) style of the true 5 stars establishments. Next time I'll be in the area this will be for me the only place to stay.
- A minimalist apartment with all comforts capable to accommodate a family or a group of 4-6 persons.
- Sandra and Simos were very kind and hospitable

We only had one night in Athens before our flight home so we decided to see the sunset over Sounio, a great way to end a vacation in Greece. This is an absolutely beautiful apartment... Brand new and gorgeous! The bathroom even has a glass shower door which was greatly appreciated after weeks of tiny showers with curtains at other accommodations. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with plenty of storage. It has a full size kitchen with everything you need and a balcony with a beautiful sea view. The living area is spacious and comfortable and there are board games and books for your use. The owners are super friendly and helpful. They are amazing hosts and welcomed us with a snack and a bottle of wine. You should take advantage of the breakfast offer. It was excellent in taste and value, fresh omelettes, eggs, tomatoes, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade marmalade, cereal, meat and cheese, coffee. I really can't say enough nice things about the accommodations or hosts. I highly recommend this apartment to everyone looking to visit Sounio. I only wish we could stay longer and next time we will!
