Interaction with guests
I'm an Athens native so I know the city like the back of my hand. I can help you find anything from neat little corners and historic cafes in old Athens to nice beaches, good restaurants and night life.
I'm a native speaker of both English and Greek (+ un peu de Francais) so I can help in many ways. I'm also very discreet and will not be in your way at all unless you ask for my help.
I know Greece very well as I used to manage properties in Santorini, Laconia and Thessaloniki, and can help you plan the rest of your trip and save on expenses.
I'm available online more or less around the clock to help with anything you might wish (travel arrangements, taxi pickups etc). It's my pleasure to help, don't hesitate to contact me at any time.
Airport pickup and trips along the coastline to Sounio/Kalyvia and other places can be arranged.
Check in/out times can be very flexible subject to availablity.
The Apt. is situated at the crossroads of Plaka and Syntagma. On one side you have ancient ruins and temples on quiet pedestrian streets leading to the Acropolis, on the other the bustling city center, with many shops, restaurants and night life as well as easy access to the airport, Piraeus and pretty much everywhere else.
Plaka, by far the nicest neighborhood in all of Athens, is mostly comprised of Neoclassical mansions and pedestrian streets with plazas and ancient ruins interspersed throughout.
The area around Syntagma is very tourist oriented with many shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and travel agencies. Shopping is also very convenient as Athens' premiere shopping street (Ermou) is only 50m away. A short downhill walk from there and you hit "Monastiraki", Athens' major tourist oriented market. From there it's a short walk to Psiri, Thiseio or Keramikos.. the areas where Greeks go to relax and have fun at night.
Syntagma square, 150m away, is the absolute Center of Athens, tram, bus and Metro service is available.
Easy and affordable access to the airport and port and even the regional bus station (KTEL).
You can also just walk out the front door and hail a cab on the street 24h/7d year round.
Most car rental companies have offices on nearby Syggrou avenue, just a 5 min walk. For a one day trip, you can pick-up and drop off right there, never having to worry about parking in Athens.

I'm a Greek born, mostly American educated Musician. Other than Greece, I've lived in the US, Thailand, Myanmar and Belgium. I like trekking and camping as well as computers and technology. Athens is my hometown and I know the country like the back of my palm. I'm open to hang out and show you around Athens and I can help you plan your stay in Greece to make it both less "touristy" and much cheaper.
