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

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

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.

This is an owner who cares

We booked this apartment for 4 days in April, three ladies travelling together. It was perfect for us. We found it clean, well appointed and equipped. I would not hesitate to recommend it. We didn't walk into the center as we were quite busy, but taxis are inexpensive. We tried one restaurant in the area, recommended by Carole, and it was excellent, fun (forgot the name but it was the most recommended on her list).

Carole takes the time to be sure your stay is comfortable - she provides a lot of information in advance and at the apartment too.

We used Nico for tours & transfer to airport (arranged on Carols advice) and he is very knowledgable and likeable, I can recommend him. We also took a cooking class with Evi, we worked with her on the menu we wanted in advance, the class was at the apartment, she is excellent and makes it interesting , easy, fun ( and I am not a cook ! - we did this as my friends were interested), I can recommend her also.

Thanks Carol for a great time.
