A nice place to stay, with a wonderful host in ersi
A nice spacious place, always parking outside on a fairly busy and loud road. The apartment was clean and tidy, any issues where dealt with promptly. 3 floors up but there is a lift. Gets the morning Sun on the balcony. The only reason not 5 star is some parts in apartment are falling apart, shelves in cupboards,door to a cupboard. No big deal and did not effect our stay! We would recommend and will return soon
Thank you for your kind remarks.
Pls allow me to say that if you choose a location next to everything is not possible to be quite like to stay in the top of the hill.
The 2 shelves in the 2 cupboards there were removed by the previous guests,unfortunately they didn’t say anything and i didn’t have time to check because I had my mother in the hospital.
Every winter I’m renovating and restoring the apartment, from the damages occurred.
Once again thank you and I hope to see you again.
Excellentes vacances à Varkiza
Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances à Varkiza. L'appartement d'Ersi est agréable, propre et spacieux. Il est très proche de la plage et des commodités (5 mn à pieds). Le quartier est très calme.
I would like to thank Maguin familly, because they were polite, clean and they respect the apartment, I strongly recommend them and I wish to see them again in the future. I wish them all the best !!
Lovely apartment and perfect location for Athens getaway
From when we initially enquired about the apartment until the moment we gave the keys back after our stay, the owner was very helpful, easy to contact & really nice & friendly. The apartment was lovely, very big! There were only two of us and we had tons of space which was nice, but would easily have been fine for another two people as well & we didn't even use the second bedroom. The balcony is huge & perfect for watching the sunrise over the mountains if you're an early riser (as my partner is!) or for eating meals. We cooked quite a few meals in the kitchen, everything worked fine and there was plenty of pots, pans, plates etc. The place was very clean and tidy and nice to relax in after a long day on the beach! Lots of towels provided. Had an iron and board too.
The apartment is a 5 minute walk down the hill to the beaches (Varkiza & Yabanaki). I would recommend Yabanaki as it is bigger with more facilities and cheaper (6Eur weekdays) but prices increase at weekend (11Eur). Although we had a lovely dinner at Varkiza beach cafe. Supermarket & deli are both good, our meal at Zaxos was not good, but we did have nice ones at most other places nearby.
Vouglameni beach & town is only 10 min on E22 bus around the bay & definitely visit Lake Vouglameni (few stops before) natural spa (9Eur).
Small things: Washing machine wasn't working when we arrived but had only just broken down so just check if its fixed if you want to wash stuff. We couldn't find a plug anywhere for baths/washing up so improvised with a few large round stones we found in the bathroom, which worked just as well :-). TV works but is old & only shows Greek channels so if you want to watch films etc. there is a DVD player.
Bus to Athens is E22 which goes from down the hill just outside the 'Esplanade' cafe. You have to buy tickets from the kiosk across the road which sells beach bits and magazines (1.40Eur inc. metro). Takes about 45 min. Get off at last stop & get on Metro to Athens centre (Acropolis etc.) Bus to Sounion is the orange bus (no number) which you get from the stop opposite 'Esplanade'. It's a local Attica bus & you pay on the bus (5Eur ish each). Takes just over 1hr.
Generally the place was great & I would definitely recommend both the apartment and area. Good value for money & perfect for staying in a quite local town then traveling into the city. We had a lovely holiday and got engaged at Cape Sounio which was very romantic! Perhaps we'll go back for our anniversary!
Thank you so much Kate and his fiancee, they were perfect guests,
I strongly recommend them and its my pleasure to host them again.
I would like to inform for the future that the washing machine is not
included in the facilities of the apartment, in the bath tub there is a filter for the hair and the plug was in the cupboard, misunderstanding which could easily be solved if you have just called me, besides phone calls are free.
I wish you all the best in your new life and i promised to change the TV , as soon as a gained some money. !!
Be happy and come again with your children !!

I would like to thank the owner of the appartment for contributing to our great vacation! We received a very warm welcome and the conditions of our stay were up to the highest standards. The appartment is very pretty, comfortable, clean and quiet, with a very nice view and a good location. We found everything to our liking and more. Everything was thought of, to the small detail. The beds are comfortable, the bedspreads and towels are new, there are all necessary amenities.
Great place for spending your family vacation!

We (2 adults and 3 kids of 4-6 years old) were staying for 3 weeks in this accomodation. It's a very comfortable, cosy and pleasant place with a very warmly welcoming mistress. She prepared vine, olive oil and water to our arrival and, what was very important for us, different maps and booklets of Athens. Accomodation is on a quiet street, 5-6 min to Yabanaki beach with fine, small-scale sea entrance. It has a big balcony and we could see mountains, sea, pines. Mistress helped and consult us in any problem. Varkiza is close to the centre of Athens, we usually go by taxi or bus. And it's close to a wonderfull lake Vouliagmeni with fishes who peel our feet. I've rented accomodations and travelled in different countries but this flat is my favourite.
