Owner's description is VERY ACCURATE!
Traveling with 21 yr old son, 18 yr old daughter and husband. Nikos, the owner, provided very helpful, timely answers to my questions before and after booking. Nikos greeted us upon arrival and the house was wonderfully appointed. Much larger than the photos illustrate. first floor bedroom was perfect for daughter and her friend. Master has huge 2nd floor patio which wraps around to the other bedrooms. 2nd Floor bathroom is very cool! Gorgeous gardens and seaside views. Very convenient to buses, taxis and assortment of restaurants, bars, grocery stores (quite a few walking distance).
Kitchen has everything you may need. House has everything you need. Very comfortable and peaceful ambiance.
We spent the night before our week stay in Athens, toured the Acropolis, and surrounding area. Next morning, we took 30 min taxi ride to house. Mid week, we took a taxi back to Athens to spend more time walking around and take in the Acropolis Museum. (Do this first before Acropolis, it will mean more!) Visited Lake Vouliagmeni one day - a must do! Last day, we took the bus to the Temple of Posideon and it was only 7.50 euro each way per person. Easy to catch (take the orange or yellow bus from bus stop 2 blocks away), and well worth the trip.
Nikos was available for our questions and offered assistance throughout our stay. The only surprises at this vacation rental were pleasant ones!
TIPS: there are no currency exchange storefronts in Varkiza, so exchange money (get small bills, no one wants 50's) in Athens or at airport.
we did not take out an international cell phone plan (we are from US). We used wifi at hosue and then in Athens, we used various cafe wifi spots with purchase. Good opportunity to try and unplug and enjoy the relaxation.
