Home away from home. Just a 7 min. walk to the beach; 10 min. bus ride to geothermal Lake Vouliameni . Two bedrooms, private bath. Best for 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults. Enjoy the peaceful life of Athens; away from the city, but close enough to easily get to all the beauty and monuments of Ancient Athens. Nearby nightlife in charming Voula and fabulous Glyfada. Buses & tram 7-10 min. on foot. Convenient to Airport, Metro & Downtown. Breakfast included.
The space is our entire upstairs: bedroom, bathroom, breakfast/TV room and large balcony. It gives you privacy along with lots of fresh air and sunshine. Depending on the time of day and your mood, you can sit inside or out-all year round. There is greenery everywhere. We no longer have a dog.
Access to your space is through our front door and up a flight of stairs. Voula is a calm, safe neighborhood with lots of trees and parks. On the seafront there is a long promenade, great for walking or sitting at the cafe/restaurant. Voula Square is a 20 minute walk and is chockablock restaurants and cafes, filled with neighborly ambiance till midnight and later. It is not touristic at all and a good place to experience the Greek way of life. Just next door to Voula is Glyfada, a vibrant, hopping place pulsing with night life, cafes, bars, restaurants, cinemas and shopping.
Interaction with guests
Titika and I have lived in Greece for 35 years. I'm American and she is Greek-Canadian. We're retired teachers. One of us is almost always home. We're here to supply information about Greece, the Islands, Athens or Voula/Glyfada. You will also have access to our extensive collection of books about Greece as well as a sizable library. (I used to own an English bookshop in Athens.)

Titika and Rick met in the romantic setting of her school (she was a teacher) or was it his book shop? in any case, the school needed books and the shop had books to sell. The long and the short of it is they met and fell in love. They married and raised two children who are now building their own lives. So we've taken their rooms, redecorated and made them available to you, our kind guests. Our kids may show up, but their rooms are now yours. We have both traveled extensively and know what the needs and vexations of travelers are and so we want to help our guests fulfill the former and avoid the latter. I've traveled nearly round the world and the best places I've stayed at, were those where I felt truly at home; in someone's house. Traveling is always such a mixture of pleasure and apprehension. That's what makes it interesting; that's what makes it compelling.
