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

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.

Guest access

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.)

Other things to note

The rooms are fully equipped with a/c, screens, TV, WiFi, refrigerator, kettle, coffee maker. We provide coffee, tea, sugar, milk, Greek honey, marmalade and fresh bread for your breakfast. Gluten free cuisine is also available, prepared by Rick from your specific requirements.

Rick's place is really nice and quite. It is close to the beach and center of Glyfada. Rick was really helpful and staying at his place was like visiting a family.

If you want the warm welcoming of family and good hearted people Rick and his wife are definitely just that. They gave a brief tour and for the space and privacy given this ,is worth it. Also a cute lounge room with coffee, water, fridge and other amenities available. We loved everything.

Rick and Titika were great hosts. We book the room last minute and they did their best to assist us. The house was very good and clean. It was overall a beyond expectation experience, and I would like to tank them once more for the hospitality.

Rick's house was our final stop in a 9-day trip around Greece. We wanted to have a calm day before we headed to the airport and that's what we got. The house is not so big, but it's enough to accommodate 4. Rick and his wife gave us a map with the main spots to visit and were always available for any doubt we had. Very good.

Rick User ProfileRick is a superhost.

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.
