About the Property

Perfect Penthouse Sleeps 2 - 8, Wifi, Views, Walk To Sites, Cafes, Parks, Shops

Why not let a past guest tell you why you should stay here:

"Athens and the Acropolis View Beta were fantastic!

After a long absence from greece, i didn’t know what i to expect, especially with the economic crisis putting a squeeze on the greek people. As a mother of two young children, i worried in particular about staying in athens. Would it be safe? To my surprise and delight, athens was as i remembered and even better. The people were warm, helpful, and hospitable.

The six of us, (4 adults and two children) stayed 3 nights in the acropolis view beta penthouse. The penthouse was clean, spacious, and modern. Carole has thoughtfully equipped it with all the comforts of home (wifi, air-conditioning, fully stocked kitchen, even a flat iron!). The beds were so comfortable too. It has also several verandas in the unit, but the most amazing one is the roof top veranda that wraps around with spectacular views of the acropolis and lykavittos hill. We sat up there every night with a bottle of wine, enjoying the illuminated views of athens at night. Awe-inspiring!


The location of the beta penthouse was within walking to all the major sites in athens, which is a huge plus in my book. Athens is a wonderful place for walking, taking in the local ambience. Be sure to visit the new acropolis museum!

I loved dealing with carole, the owner, who i found to be helpful, professional, and very kind. In her literature, carole suggested we visit the farmer’s market “laiki” on tuesday. What a treat and a sight for our eyes. The vegetables and fruits were aromatic, fresh, and tasted so delicious – not like what we get here in the los angeles, and for much less money."

Our Acropolis View Beta, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse, complete with views of the Acropolis and Lykavittos from the living room and wraparound balcony, sleeps 8 guests in 3 bedrooms, two with Queen and Twin beds, the other with a double bed.
Our imported Sealy Posturepedic beds have been noted by our guests over and over as providing the best sleep they've experienced during their travels in Greece! Depending on your age, you may or may not be able to appreciate the importance of this!

The spacious living room accommodates two additional guests on a sofa sleeper. There are two full baths (one with a jacuzzi style whirlpool and hydromassage shower, the other with a hydrojet shower only), and a wraparound balcony which overlooks a vibrant tree and cafe lined street, with Lykavittos and Acropolis illuminating the night sky beyond.

This penthouse shares access to our landscaped and furnished amazing Acropolis view roof terrace, which we own and is accessible only to our guests in the Alpha and Beta penthouses.

  • Housekeeping $75
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

Basil & Carole's American homes in Athens are often copied, but never duplicated. We're still real vacation rental owners - we stay in our home when we are in Athens - so it is truly still our own home away from home. This means we know the beds are great & the kitchen stocked with everything you need to really cook. But we also love to be tourists in our adopted city, too.
