2 BR, 1.5 BA, sleeps 4
- english, greek
My mother, siblings and children live in the northeastern part of the United States. Although we have traveled to Greece over the years, having our own home now allows us to visit several times every year. Most of our friends and family still live in our neighborhood. It could not be better! All of us speak the Greek language and are familiar with Athens and other parts of the country. We would be happy to help where we can to make your trip more pleasurable. Thank you for considering our Athens home!
Urania purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Urania chose Mets
'The Stratis' was built in 2005 on the property where our family first immigrated to Athens from other parts of Greece over 100 years ago. Although there were many memories made throughout the decades, we chose to re-build with all the modern conveniences so that our family and friends could enjoy our home for many more years to come. We are located less than 30 minutes from the airport and the major ferry port, where we are able to leave for day cruises or longer. Public transportation and taxis afford us the luxury of being able to go to the local beaches and mountains for the day. There are also car rental companies within a few blocks when we want to travel through the mainland of Greece. Our condominium becomes home base so we can visit with family and friends and still vacation. It is truly our 'home away from home!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great Central Location
This place completely met our expectations! It was close to the Acropolis and the Plaka which made every day easy to slepp in if we wanted and wander out at our leisure. The neighborhood is completely safe, just watch when you cross the road. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and we used Antonis for the airport pickup which was a very smart decision and takes the stress of landing and getting your bearings much simpler. There wasn't a single negative thing to mention about this apartment and we loved the fact that it has a neighborhood feel just around the corner if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Would definitely stay there again!
Gem of a Place
We very much enjoyed this lovely, cozy condo right in the heart of the Athens tourist area. No need for taxis, which was such a relief! Marika was very warm and welcoming and was happy to arrange our transport to the airport upon leaving. Antonis the driver was very friendly. Loved the condo...clean, well-appointed, quiet. Urania the owner was also very responsive to all my questions when we booked the property. All in all, a super choice for us! We would recommend it to anyone (except for the dates we want to come back!)
A Wonderful and Perfectly-Located Apartment in Athens
This apartment has all the modern conveniences we wanted and it is located in a neighborhood not far from the sites most visitors want to see, such as the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, the Agora, and good restaurants in the Plaka neighborhood, etc. (Plaka is actually about a 10 minute walk from the apartment). An important feature for us in the apartment was the bed. It was most comfortable and provided for a good night’s sleep. The apartment is also very well maintained and furnished. Although the weather was cool for us, there are air-conditioners in each of the rooms for those very hot and humid days in Athens. A definite plus!
Marika, the property manager, was very helpful and always accessible to us. She told us where to find near-by grocery stores and restaurants, suggested places to go, gave us directions and she was clear about how everything worked in the apartment. She helped make our stay enjoyable and we enjoyed a great conversation with her over a cup of coffee at a neighborhood café. When we return for another stay in Athens, this apartment will be at the top of our list.
PERFECT Athens accommodations!!!
We spent the end of April and beginning of May in Athens, and it could not have been better! The best "find" was our accommodations! What a fabulous, perfect respite in the heart of Athens! Most everything - the Acropolis and museum, most historic sites, parks, gardens, shopping, restaurants, walking routes - all easy access from this wonderful condo! We walked most everywhere, and this was the perfect location to explore it all! The Metro is close and easy to use for any "beyond" destinations too. Absolutely perfect location set in a quiet neighborhood, just off the hustle and bustle of Athens city life! Convenient, and easy walking too!
The condo itself keeps Athens' beauty and elegance alive in the apartment that shares an actual archeological site exposed to appreciate and enjoy - just steps away! Everything is modern, attractive, and absolutely clean, comfortable and well stocked!
Everything is easy to use, well labeled with a book that explains anything needed to understand. We don't speak or read Greek, and there was NO language problem at all! Plus there is always a live person just a phone call away for assistance. (No recordings to have to deal with!)
This reassurance and meeting up with Marika to introduce and confirm everything, plus all of the most thoughtful and helpful assistance and support she provides makes this vacation spot ideal!
A local market, excellent restaurant choices, and a full and complete kitchen make meals easy and "Greek good"! Eating in, picnicking or Greek gastronomic is equally easy and most enjoyable in this lovely apartment or easy venturing out in the neighborhood and beyond!
Two bedrooms with comfortable beds, and plenty of natural and decorative lighting as well. Warm and cozy in the evenings, and cool enough during the more heated afternoons - excellent! Plus two bathrooms, one with the shower, are perfect and convenient too! We especially appreciated the solar water heating - it's great to experience world-wide environmental changes!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Athens - not only because of the amazing attributes of Athens, but our Athenian apartment was truly the perfect choice! Comfortable, cozy, welcoming and the best atmosphere and environment! Marika has made this a welcoming and relaxing and hospitable vacation retreat. THESE are the Athens accommodations to book!
Everything was just as promised, and even better than pictured.
The location was just where we wanted to be, walking distance to the Acropolis and Hadrian's Gate. Groceries and restaurants all an easy walk. Spotless, with everything we needed for our comfort. Was great to have the dryer since it wasn't quite the season for drying clothes on the balcony. Marika is the true gem in this picture, she makes certain you have everything you need. We also used the driver recommended (Antonis Karalis) to get to and from the airport (we took a side trip to Crete - so he took us for that trip too!) - he was on time, fair price, and handled random road closures like a champ. Thank you for a great vacation!
Loved Heart of Athens
Our first visit to Athens and a perfect location close to the Acropolis and walking distance to great restaurants. The accommodations are perfect to stay and has all the comforts of home away from home. More importantly, glad to have Marika greet us and tell us about the area. If you ever need a friend, Marika saved me in an emergency when my cell phone got wet. She recommended a cell phone repair service that truly are reputable. We definitely would stay here again!
