Wow! This was our first overseas airbnb experience and Kosmas has set the bar really high. A lovely welcome and a veritable feast awaiting us on the table! The house was perfect and the courtyard stunning. We loved the location, quiet and peaceful yet a short walk over the hill to the Acropolis and it really is a short walk! If we do come back to Athens we will be wanting to come back to Kosmas's house. He went out of his way to help and even printed off e tickets for us the day before we left so we could actually fly out! Thanks and we recommend this house to all!

Spotlessly clean, lovely place to stay. Perfect for a city break, you couldn't get closer to the Acropolis, this is the ideal location, close to everything we wanted to discover in Athens. The house is charming and cosy, with lovely sheltered garden, and Kosmas was ever so helpful and kind! The kitchen has everything you need, and we were waited for with cakes, biscuits, fruits, even drinks, that was such a nice touch, especially after a long journey. We had a lovely time, thank you very much Kosmas! Szabina, Paul, Zsana, Ildi

Where do I start. By far, this has been our favorite AirBnB spot. Kosmas was extremely attentive the entire time. The place is very clean and it has anything a traveler may need, even if you may have forgotten something. Kosmas is so well organized; he has a set of maps for you to easily review when you are ready to explore the city of Athens. He also has a lists of restaurants for travelers to visit when hungry. There was welcome gifts upon our arrival which made all members of the group feel extremely especial. Overall, there is not enough words to describe how satisfied we are with this airBnB spot

We stayed at Kosmas place with for four nights , the longest stay during our overland road trip. Our daughter joined us too. His place is beautiful in all sense. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Just loved the creativity in each part of the house. A small yard is perfect place to unwind. For us it was a boon to park our huge car there . Kosmas is an amazing host . Ready to help out. We needed a vacuum cleaner to clean the car which he promptly delivered us next day . He had left us lots of goodies. The best part is that he keeps basic necessary things required in the kitchen. So one doesn't have to rush to the market. The area is nice . Lots of restaurants, nightlife and a couple of supermarkets. Old town is walkable. We walked upto Acropolis and other areas in old town . Just loved the place and positive vibes it has . Thank you Kosmas. Regards & best wishes Devesh & Usha

Kosmas was a wonderful host who went out of his way to book a taxi for us to the airport. The apartment was absolutely lovely and spacious. My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will recommend this place to anyone! Thank you Kosmas!

Kosmas is a great host and he was ready to help at any time. The apartment was very cozy and clean and family friendly . The location was great and neighborhood was very quiet. The supermarket and metro were very close and family bakery near the apartment added a nice charm to the trip.

We enjoyed a very wonderful stay at Kosmas' house in Petralona. It was so lovely to stay in a house with a garden in the centre of busy Athens. The courtyard garden is as pretty as the pictures and is a welcome oasis. As a family of 5 with 3 boys age 6 - 11 this place was perfect. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We were created by Dimitris (as Kosmas was on holiday) who was extremely kind and helpful. He remained in contact the whole time we were there and arranged an early taxi for us when we were leaving - he even text at 6am to check we had got the taxi ok! The welcome goodies in the kitchen were a real treat & much appreciated- thank you! The house is an easy walk into central Athens (Monastiraki & Acropolis). The house is at the foot of Filopappou Hill which you can walk straight through to The Acropolis & great for the boys to run around! Alternatively take one of the narrow paths next to the main path to the hill which takes you up onto the road and you can walk on street level into the Thesio area with its lovely cafes & restaurants. The metro from the airport to Petralona station is straight forward & cheaper than taxi (children half price) but the road to the house is uphill! There are a couple of restaurants & a supermarket near the house & Kosmas has left good information of where to find them. Petralona is a lovely , quiet residential area. Having spent 4 days walking around different areas in Athens we found staying at Kosmas house perfect for us rather than busier, tourist areas of Monastiraki or Plaka.
