“Great place for extended families or groups of up to 8-10”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed at the Villa Olivia for 3 nights. We were a family of 7 + 1 infant, and enjoyed it immensely.

Structured and organized in a very clever way, this place easily accommodates 8 people, but can even more if those would sleep on one of the two sofas.

It is very convenient and includes 4 bedrooms, 4 toilets, 3 bathrooms (one has a small Jacuzzi in it), 2 terraces (one has beautiful views to the port, especially at sunset), a kitchen and even in indoor elevator if someone gets tired of stairs.

The place is run by two lovely ladies, Nandia and Anna, who - in addition to being genuinely nice - have been super attentive and responsive, before and during our stay. Possibly the quickest response time I had encountered when travelling.

Two points to consider though - one is the location. It is not in the 'heart' of Athens where all the restaurants and bars are at, but rather in a simple neighborhood, ~20-30 minutes walk from everywhere. We actually liked its quietness and the walks, but it is something to consider, especially since Athens is sometimes rocky. The second is that there are no spices, oil, etc. so if you are planning on cooking - you should take care of that on your own. The kitchen itself is fully equipped however, so no need to worry about that.

Bottom line - HIGHLY recommended!

“Amazing value for the price”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
people found this review helpful

I was visiting Athens for the first time, and was skeptical on renting a house. After researching hotels in the area, we made the decision to go with Villa Olivia mainly because hotel rooms in Athens (Plaka) were very small.
From the moment we arrived, we were sure that we had made the right decision. Anna was absolutely fantastic in making us feel comfortable from the get go. She made sure we had everything we needed at the house, and she also went out of her way to give us a list of nearby attractions and restaurants to visit.
The house was beautiful both inside and out. Very well maintained, clean, modern, with a touch of neo-classical charm. The beds were very comfortable, and most importantly very clean. Same goes for the restrooms, and the kitchen. We couldn't believe the price we were paying for the type of house we had rented. (Absolute bang for your buck!)
The location couldn't have been any better. The house was in a clean, safe and quite residential neighborhood, pretty much in the heart of the city. That is extremely hard to come by. It was no more than a 5-10 minute drive to most attractions in Athens. If you do not have a car, the metro station is less than a 5 minute walk from the house.
I would recommend this home to anyone that's willing to go to Athens, and feel the comfort that you will in your own home. The service which Anna offered, made our trip that much better.
One would be making a huge mistake picking a hotel room vs Villa Olivia. It's a no brainer, and the lovely pictures on the website do not do any justice of how amazing the house really is. The pictures on the website, don't do any justice.

The best part about this job is meeting new people and helping them have the best time in our villas and our country. It is always wonderful to realize that, most of the times, we actually achieve that.
