Welcome to my home :-)
My house is build in 1910 in neoclassical style and is located in Monastiraki area right in the heart of Athens. You have immediate access in tons of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and all the main archaeological sites!

The space

My house is a charming neoclassical home built in 1910 with high decorated ceilings, painted walls and large windows that gets very light and see the Parthenon and the hill next to it in the trees . The view of the house is very special and it dοesn't reminds you a big city. Its surrounded with beautiful neoclassical buildings , pedestrian road , archaeological sites, market , caffes , restaurants , bars, clubs etc. The terrace has spectacular view, a small garden with my plants and a few vegetables. There is also a small grill for delicious barbecue. The house doesn't have an elevator you will have to climb 16 marble and 16 wooden stairs. There is not door bell you need to call me to open the door. Living in my house is very comfortable and pleasant. The bedroom is the coolest room in the house (great for summer).Its in the back side of the house away from the road. Quiet, and next is the bathroom and the kitchen. My espresso maker is very good and I'm proud of it. I'd be happy if you tried it.

Guest access

Apart from the bedroom, kitchen and the bathroom there is a comfortable lounge to relax. There is also a table where you can lay your laptop by the window overlooking the Parthenon.

Interaction with guests

I am welcoming and considerate. Our interaction depense on our free time and interests. My schedule is unsettled due to the nature of my work. Sometimes I work a lot sometimes I have more free time. In any case I will not live you helpless. I will lead you to everything you need. I know Athens. I can give you good tips.

The house is amazing, has a lot of character. We came late and there was welcoming music, beds made and everything! We never saw the host, and it turns out we slept in the in the wrong bed!

Great Location, surrounded by restaurants, cafes etc. The flat was full of character and original features. Our bed was comfortable. The flat was clean. Didn't see much of Makis but he gave us lots of tips of where to eat and shop nearby. We arrived during a thunderstorm and enjoyed watching the lightening over the Parthenon from the roof terrace. Our ferry was late so Makis organised a place for us to pick up the key as he had plans. Good communication. Would stay again.

Makis is a friendly & helpful host. He was happy to help me with my luggage up and down his stairs. The accomodation is basic , in an old building with some beautiful terrazzo flooring and interesting art pieces. Bedroom, bathroom & kitchen were clean. The view of the Acropolis from the roof is wonderful. It is accessed by a narrow, metal, spiral staircase. The location is great for transport, eating & roaming. I felt quite safe as a single woman going to eat out at night. 2 doors to the left is a great place for fresh orange juice, sandwiches, pies and chocolate croissants. Great for breakfast if you don't mind standing.

Makis is super helpful and responsive. Great host ! The room is in the back of the apartment which means this is very quiet. Location is perfect and the view from the rooftop is awesome. If you want to stay in a "local" apartment with makis' touch, this is the place you would like to sleep.
