Overview

About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2.0 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

In search of a family-sized holiday apartment in the heart of Athens? You've found it at Acropolis View Beta Penthouse.

Inside, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms provide ample living space for families or groups of adventurous friends, sleeping up to 8 people. And while the modern interiors are impressive, it’s the wraparound balcony and landscaped roof terrace that set this sleek Athens pad apart! It's 5-star comfort, without the 5-star price tag.

ROOMS WITH (OUTDOOR) VIEWS

Beta Penthouse comes with a city-view balcony, perfect for starting the day with an alfresco coffee. In the evening, head up to the roof terrace, shared only with our AlphaPlus Penthouse next door, and enjoy the shimmer of moonlight on rooftops with glass of wine in hand; or enjoy a special meal under the stars, thanks to the handy gas BBQ grill and plentiful outdoor seating.

For larger groups, Beta and AlphaPlus can be rented together as a spacious duplex, giving you exclusive access to the landscaped rooftop terrace. Wine tasting and catered breakfasts can also be arranged. Ask us for details!

3 BEDROOMS/2 BATHS

We have 3 bedrooms that sleep 8, with 2 more guests accommodated on the sofa bed. Two bedrooms have Queen and twin-sized beds, making them ideal for families with small kids. The third room, an internal room with air-conditioning and double bed, is a cozy option for the teen who wants privacy.

The two full baths come with all you need to refresh after a day's sightseeing. Each comes furnished with organic Greek bath products and fluffy robes. One bathroom has a hydro-massage walk-in shower, while the second features an American-style combo of jetted tub and hydro-massage shower.

AUTHENTIC ATHENS

You’re right in the center of it all at Beta Penthouse. Gaze over your morning coffee as Athenian life unfolds around you. Just outside, in the 4 “platieas,” or local squares, you'll find kids at play and neighbors catching up before heading to the nearby farmers’ markets.

The tree-lined street is full of cafes and restaurants – take your pick and discover some of the best Greek food in the city. The area is favored by locals in the know and travelers after a slice of the real Athens.

And when it’s time to see the sights, you’re within walking distance of the historic center and the best museums in the city, like the Benaki, the Cycladic, and the National Art Gallery. Easy-to-navigate public transportation makes it a breeze to visit Syntagma Square and the National Gardens too. You’re also a stone’s throw from the jogging paths and pine-scented playground of the Little Forest of Pagrati.

AMERICAN-STYLE AMENITIES

While the neighborhood offers authentic Athens at your doorstep, Greek Vacation Rentals provides their guests with true American-style comfort once you step inside. You’ll love the charging station for US electronics (no more fumbling with adaptors!) and the fully stocked kitchen, perfect for big, boisterous family dinners. All the necessary appliances are here – think large full-sized washer and dryer – to ensure an easy vacation for everyone.

The imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, heavenly high thread-count linens, and sumptuous bath products make Beta Penthouse feel like home (only better).

We believe our Acropolis View Beta Penthouse is the perfect place to live like a local - make it your chic home-away-from-home in downtown Athens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was well centered as we could walk almost anywhere. The apartment was very clean and well appointed with all the necessities and then some! Carole has outdone herself with helps and recommendations -and she took care of all the drivers and tours. It was like our very own concierge in Greece!

Thank you Carole for your hospitality!

Well equipped apartment in lovely area of Athens

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this well equppied apartment in Pagrati area of Athens. The apartment had everything we needed and was surrounded by local amenities. If I were to visit Athens again, I would certainly use these guys. The view from the roof terrace was breathtaking.

Very clean and had a nice welcome basket. My only issue is that it is not well marked from street.

  • 4 of 5

Clean accommodations with washer and dryer. Also supplied well for our stay. A little difficult to find for taxi purposes - would appreciate it being better marked.

The beautiful photos don't lie! We loved our stay at this Acropolis View penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

Carole (the homeowner) made planning our trip to Athens so easy and the property did not disappoint! We had incredible views and were within walking distance of several fantastic recommended restaurants. Historic sights were a 15-20 minute walk (or a $5 euro cab ride) away. Watching sunsets on the rooftop patio after long hours of sight-seeing was the perfect end to each day. The penthouse was spacious, modern and very comfortable. There were even several "American" electrical sockets so our family didn't have to argue over who could charge their cells next! Carole went to great lengths to explain the neighborhood, suggest day/side trips and ensure we felt completely at home during our stay. We highly recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to Athens!

Fantastic place and Excellent service

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was fantastic for my family of 6. Extremely clean and had everything we needed during our 3 days in Athens. Carole made sure we were well taken care of (even when our flight into athens was cancelled....which made us finally arrive around 2am). 5 stars for the place...and 5 stars for the service!!!!

Greek Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The apartment is fantastic. It has everything we needed and is really comfortable. We loved the balcony and the view of the Parthenon at night. It is convenient for walking and exploring Athens. We only took a cab back once after a busy day with the food tour and Parthenon tour.

Carole is extremely timely and helpful. She was able to arrange several wonderful tours and transportation for us at the last minute. We really appreciated her help. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We loved having you as our guests (and it was great to be able to meet in person!) and our RealGreece team enjoyed getting to know your family on your tours and daytrips. We hope we'll have a change to welcome you back to Greece to help you explore more - or perhaps we'll see you in Chicago at our Magic Factory Lofts.
