We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Costas's home. We were looking forward to it because the Airbnb photos looked so great - and when we got there, everything was even better than we'd expected. It's a dream home! With the most beautiful views and everything we could possibly hope for in a holiday home. Our only regret was that we only stayed for one week! The home is quiet, cool, fantastically designed and decorated, with a view of the entire bay from the balcony and garden which is simply magical! I loved Costas's art, which decorates the walls, and the entire home oozes art and creativity. I am both envious and grateful to him! And Costas is an absolute gentleman! His communication was excellent throughout. He's a font of information, with phone numbers for everything from taxis and takeaways to a children's doctor. And fully knowledgeable of the area, its history, where to go and what to do. We also had the opportunity to meet Costas's family and had a delightful day in their Company: they are generous hosts with open hearts and made us feel so very much at home and a part of their family, which is a very special gift indeed (they're all, also, fantastic swimmers and divers and put on quite a show!). The complex itself was quiet and peaceful too. The pools were just perfect. We made lots of friends and it was heaven for our boy: a safe and friendly environment for families and children. During the day we were the pools or down at the (many, beautiful) beaches. In the evening there was tennis, a playground, the pool tables, the gym, and even an outdoor cinema (we saw Pete's Dragon and Despicable 3). I can wholeheartedly recommend Costas and his home to anyone. One of the things I love about Airbnb is the opportunity, it provides, to meet new people and share in their hospitality. Costas is a great example of what makes Airbnb special. Thank you again, Costas - our very best wishes (and fondest regards) to you and family. Thank you. I hope we see you again soon! Philip

Had a great time over Easter at Costas's place in Porto Rafti. Costas is a very open and helpful host, he made sure we got settled in, despite a late night arrival. The next morning he stopped by to help get us oriented, showed us around town a bit and gave us some great suggestions on what to see, where to eat, etc. It's a lovely villa with an amazing view. The complex is quiet and private, but also a short walk from all the best places (beaches, restaurants, coffee shops and a great bakery). I would certainly recommend staying at Costas's place if Porto Rafti is your travel destination.

We had a great time in Porto Rafti. Costas' place is beautiful, the view unforgettable and our holiday was even better than imagined. We stayed there in the deepest winter and even though the temperatures were pretty low for Greece, we had it cosy and warm thanks to the open fireplace in the livingroom and numerous heaters all over the place. We could sit in the terrace, looking over the bay, even at night. Costas himself is really nice, helpful, we felt right at home. Thank you, Costas!

Porto Rafti is a great location within reach of Sounion and Athens, a beautiful bay and nice beaches. Apollonio Complex is beautifully designed by a famous architect and the apartments are owned mostly by Greek families. We were there in June and felt like we had the place to ourselves in the week. Kostas apartment is great - situated by the pool and easy to walk to a local shop and the promenade. It was clean comfortable and has great art by Kostas himself. It has a dishwasher, washing machine, well equipped kitchen and air conditioning. It has a great covered veranda with breathtaking views of the sea and bay. We spent most of our time out there. Would highly recommend it. Kostas and his family were very friendly and welcoming with useful contacts and tips for our stay.

We had an awesome time at Soli’s and Costa’s place! The communication with Costas directly after we booked the place was super nice and helpful. We had to delay our booking and Costas reacted with a lot of understanding and in a really nice and uncomplicated way. Furthermore he sent us a map with self written hints to find the way from the airport to the place, which was a big help. And durig our stay, Costas gave us a call from time to time to aks if everything is fine. We had a very warm welcome on our arrival. They showed us the place, explained everything importand regarding the place and the whole Apollonio Complex and Costas gave us lots of tips about the whole area around Porto Rafti and Athen. Guidance at it’s best! The place is really huge and pretty well equipped. Three TVs, a washing machine, a dishwasher, everything you need to cook in the kitchen and perfect working WiFi. The best: you have a homely garden in front and a veranda in the back with a view that is just a blast! We spent hours of relaxing and starring at the sea and at night we enjoyed the fireplace in the comfortable living room. The Apollonio Complex itself is just a fantastic neat and secure housing area and much more we had expected. We walked around for hours, used the tennis court and the really nice pools. The sea and a lovely cove called Love Cave, kinda private beach is just minutes away. The Porto Rafti area is a picturesque spot and we did walks along the nice promenade and into the mountains for hours. There a lots of great restaurants, bars and at the center are regional supermarkets, Carrefour and Lidl where we found everything we needed. Besides the great place, you get wonderful hosts. Soli and Costas are really great persons and we are happy to met them and having them as our hosts. They rock! Before we’ve booked the place, we’ve checked out neraly 20 other places on airbnb in this area and to choose this one has been a perfect decision. We would book this place again definitely!

Costas and Sol were lovely hosts, whose home was a little piece of paradise. My family spent ten happy days enjoying the wonderful views from the veranda, the comfy beds, the pretty garden, well-equipped kitchen, the fabulous pools, and lovely Erotospilia beach, about 15 mins walk from the apartment. Thank you both so much for sharing your home with us.

Friendly, an open character, honest and reliable.
I'm married since 1974, have a son, a daughter and 4 grandchildren.
I'm in pension now, which gives me the opportunity to spend more time doing things that matter more, like living my life w/o anxiety and spend more time with my grandchildren.
I enjoy meeting new people, nice food ( but I don't drink), and I am a passionate lover of my country.
Finally, I love sports ( sailing, tennis, swimming, bike etc), read good books and I ...paint! :)
