“Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!!!!!”
Reviewed 6 November 2009 for a stay in August 2009

We had the best time staying in Carole & Basil's "Acropolis View - Beta" and "Athens First" apartments during our recent trip to Greece! This was our first time traveling to Europe w/ our four children (14, 12, 9 & 7) and father-in-law (who was born in Greece, but hadn't returned in 63 years). The apartments were perfect in every way --spacious, nicely furnished, & updated w/ all the creature comforts necessary for a "home away from home." The location was ideal, too. We felt like tourists by day and locals by night b/c we visited attractions during the day and then had a relaxing dinner at a local taverna near the apartments. Carole's welcome package and recommendations were extremely helpful, and really made our trip so much more relaxing for us. We would highly recommend any of Carole's Athens apartments, and plan to contact her the next time we visit Greece (which our children hope is every year!). Thank you so much, Carole -- You're the BEST!!

“One of our most memorable stays”
Reviewed 27 October 2009 for a stay in August 2008

This review is short because I echo the extremely positive sentiments of most other reviewers.

Carole and Basil are wonderful, perfect hosts.

Carole was prompt, professional, helpful and informative before and after we decided to make the reservation.

The location of these apartments is absolutely fantastic. Everything in the apartment was thoughtfully prepared and arranged. Whatever we would think we needed, it was there. Many times the furnishings appear great in pictures but are not so great when you actually reach there - in this case it was exactly the opposite, the furnishings were of very high quality, better than what you would expect in the best hotels.

My wife and I, our two children 13 and 10 years old, and our 77 year old friend, loved the apartment, had great conversations with Carole and Basil about life in the U.S., in Greece, culture, family etc. We all connected with them like they were family. And they took care of us like we were family - from personally helping us rent a car, giving us careful and thoughtful directions, recommending restaurants and places to see, enjoying a glass of wine with us etc.

It has been over a year since our trip to Athens, but we have really fond memories thanks in large part to finding a home away from home.

“great, well thought out place”
Reviewed 27 October 2009 for a stay in October 2009

we stayed with two young children for a week in October. the apartments are fantastic in a number of ways

- well appointed - kitchen / laundry / bathrooms were all new, clean, working and had enough provisions / cleaning stuff to hit the ground running

- furniture was all contemprary and in good condition - practical for a family

- HEAPS of information provided online, via guide books etc thoughtfully in the apartment PLUS DVDs etc to occupy the nothing hours / kids


it is a little bit of a walk (with kids) to the main attractions - not impossible at all - just requires a bit of trip planning as dropping home for a nap etc is not practical

a really well thought out place - wish there were more like this elsewhere in the world!

“All you could ask for and more”
Reviewed 23 October 2009 for a stay in September 2009

Our weeks stay in Athens was wonderful and the apartment's location was ideal for all of our planned activities. Carole and Basil are excellent hosts and prepared us well for our stay. Twenty minute walks in any direction can take you to the Acropolis to Lycabettus Hill to the Plaka, anywhere. And Yannis is the best!! i would recommend these apartments to anyone planning on staying in Athens

“Perfect!!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2009 for a stay in September 2009

My friends and I (6 people in total) stayed 3 nights at this apartment and loved it. After being cramped in small hotels on the Greek islands it was so nice to have room to spread out. The apartment is very nice, spacious, clean with everything you'd need for your stay. It is close enough to walk to everything you're probably going to want to see in Athens. A metro stop is pretty close by if you don't want to walk about 20 mins to the main attracation. The owners, Carole and Basil, are fantastic. They helped us with arranging transportation from the airport and ferry port, a few of us were coming from different places when arriving in Athens. They made a list of great recommndations to grab a drink, lunch, dinner, grocery store, etc. We had a slight problem of blowing a fuse with a blowdryer and they had it fixed within an 30 mins of calling. After staying here I will always look at renting an apartment instead of staying in hotels. You will not be disappointed if you stay here or I imagine anyone of the other properties they own in Athens.
