About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Optional Studio, 2 or 3 Baths (Sleeps 8 - 12)

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for getting quotes for our Acropolis View Sky Villa - which is 3 properties in the same building behind the Old Olympic Stadium. VRBO/HomeAway is showing the wrong location inside the historic center. We are located near the Old Olympic Stadium. For 2 & 3 bedrooms. See listings vrbo.com/645696 & 651075.
Downtown Athens penthouse home designed to offer guests a true home away from home, familiar and comfortable with the American style amenities, full time concierge services and space for the whole family to enjoy.

This expandable sky villa can be booked as a 2, 3 or 4 bedroom, each with its own private bathroom.

The kitchen and living room are designed with an open floor plan, which is terrific because it opens on to the house's courtyard, which is secluded from the street and surrounded on all sides by the building. It is full of plants and is a lovely place to enjoy a cup of coffee as you plan your day's activities.


Our open floor plan American style kitchen features everything you need to prepare a Greek feast fit for the Gods, or just a simple breakfast of yogurt, honey & fruit. The beauty of our self-catering vacation rental home in Athens is that the choice is yours.

The kitchen and living room are surrounded by a wrap around balcony overlooking a vibrant cafe & treelined boulevard.

Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the main level of the penthouse sleep up to 7 guests (one bedroom has a King and two twins, one bedroom has a Queen and two Twins), while the Sky Terrace level has a Queen and Twin with an en suite bathroom.

The apartment also has high speed internet and free unlimited international long distance phone service to the US, Canada, Australia, China and several EU countries!

Owner info

Greek Vacation Rentals

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Wow, who would have thought when I told my husband I wanted to buy a little pied-a-terre in his hometown, Athens, Greece, that I'd end up with the greatest accidental career of my life? Born and raised in Chicago, my love for travel was evident early on. Perhaps it was my arrival in the world, early one December morning, way quicker than my siblings had, in fact so quick we were still enroute to the hospital, and I still hold the title of youngest patient ever admitted to that north suburban hospital! (And thus, as a Sagittarius, characteristically smitten with wunderlust).

Why the Owner Chose Athens, Greece:
I traveled my home country extensively with my family as a child, and was fortunate to have parents who encouraged us to study a second language young. While my language of choice as a child was French, my culture of choice was Greek - My earliest jobs were always in Chicago's Greek diners, my university days filled with hours playing backgammon in the cafeteria with my Greek friends, and my Eurail passes always started and ended my European backpacking holidays in Greece. So no one was surprised when I met Basil, a romantic writer but practicing translator and linguist, born and bred in Athens, but transplanted to Chicago, fell in love, and married him. While our life in Chicago was full, rehabbing a warehouse we purchased to house ourselves, our son and our growing Greek translation agency, I longed to plant some roots for our family in Basil's hometown. A small studio overlooking Mount Lykavittos was to be our Athens crash pad, but thanks to what seemed then an unfortunate turn of events, our home in Athens ended up being larger than we had planned, offering it as a short term furnished rental seemed the logical way to afford it. Little did we realize that it would become so popular we'd be sleeping on friend's couches rather than in our own Athens home! Tired of being homeless in Athens, we purchased a second place directly adjacent to our Athens First. In 2006 we completed the renovations of three additional short term furnished rentals. As I said early on, this is the greatest accidental business one could imagine, and I love sharing my adopted city with visitors. Our guests repeatedly thank us for the little extras that often mean so much when you are planning what is often a once in a lifetime trip.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
As an ex-pat in Athens, I know the wonderful off the beaten path places that can make a holiday special, and I also know how to stay on the tourist path without feeling like you are being herded along with the crowds. Feel free to email me with your questions as you plan your trip to Athens - just one of the little extras guests of Greek Vacation Rentals will find when they share our homes in Athens.
