Our Acropolis View Beta, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse, complete with views of the Acropolis and Lykavittos from the roof terrace, sleeps 8 guests in 3 bedrooms, two with Queen and Twin beds, the other with a double bed.

Please do not confuse this with AlphaPlus or Alpha/Beta together which has the Acropolis views from the living room. This one has Acropolis & Lykavittos views from the shared terrace & wraparound balcony.

The space

This fab rehab contemporary penthouse renovation sleeps 8 in real beds in 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms each have one Queen bed and one twin bed, the third bedroom has a double bed. The living room sofa sleeper can accommodate two additional guests. There are two full baths (one with a jacuzzi style whirlpool and hydromassage shower, the other with a hydrojet shower only) and a private veranda with views to Mount Imittos off of the living room. 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.

Our fully air conditioned homes are designed to offer our guests a true home away from home, familiar and comfortable with the same amenities they have at home. We were the first and are still among the only 2 - 3 bedroom, 2+ bath apartments in downtown Athens and we may be the only apartment in the Athens area in general to offer a full size washer and clothes dryer, luxury bed and bath linens, plush bath robes, and all natural bath and body products.

Our guests in also enjoy the use of FREE UNLIMITED high speed wireless internet along with FREE UNLIMITED international phone service to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and several other EU countries and an IPOD docking station. The apartment also has a computer (and a printer is available on advance request).

The penthouse is conveniently located in the museum area of downtown Athens (Pagrati/Caravel), between the Hilton Hotel and the Marble Stadium. It is a 15 minute walk to the historical center and Syntagma Square, past the Old Olympic Stadium and Hadrian's Arch or through the National Gardens. The Evaggelismos metro station is 5 - 7 minutes by foot as are most of the finest museums in Athens (the National Art Gallery, Benaki Museum, Museum of Cycladic Art, the Byzantine Museum & the Museum of Contemporary Art). Most of our guests choose to walk to Plaka and the Acropolis from the apartment, others prefer to take the trolley from the stand around the corner.

Guest access

Our homes are private apartments - you do not share the home with any other guests, nor will you find our personal items (clothes, etc) in the drawers. We are the owners of these apartments but we're also professional vacation rental managers who love sharing our homes and cities (adopted Athens and hometown of Chicago) with visitors from around the globe.

*The Acropolis views & terrace are shared between our Alpha & Beta penthouses. If you book both you will have them to yourself. If you book one or the other, you may be sharing the terrace and views with other guests.

Interaction with guests

Sometimes we are in Athens, something we aren't. When we are, we may be staying in one of the apartments in the same building or we may be down the street in another of our places. We are there as much as you want us but we won't bother you unless you call.
We do have a 24/7 manager who is there on the ground whether we are in town or not, so you will NEVER be without immediate support should you need something.

We spent 5 days in Athens and our stay in the apartment was great. The apartment is well located: outside the tourist area but close enough to it (some days we walked, other days we took a taxi for 4€). The apartment is spacious, comfortable, superclean, stylish modern decoration, lots of terraces and plenty of sun-light. It has everything you need: 3 rooms with very comfy beds, kitchen with all the kitchenware, dinning table, 2 bathrooms with lots of towels, shampoos and hair drier, and of course wifi. Supermarkets and bakeries are in the neighbour area. The host was very helpful and welcoming both before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to Athens.

Response from Carole & Basil:
Airbnb is built on trust. Basil and I put alot into our vacation rental homes and hope that guests staying with us will respect and honor our that. We're clear in our listings that we don't require a cash damage deposit but we do require a signed guest agreement and major credit card on file like a hotel for all of our guests. That info is made clear prior to booking online. Unfortunately we can't open our homes to guests who aren't willing to agree to those house rules. We are very transparent online - (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Carole Heiman Kezios and you'll find hundreds of past guest reviews on the various online listing sites. We have beautiful homes and happy guests, and we want to continue that but we do respect that this particular guest did not want to honor our terms and while unfortunate that we had to cancel, we do hope this brings attention to this particular house rule and that if you are uncomfortable with it, you'll move on to a home that suits you better.

We loved the house and the view was great. Very clean and homey. We really enjoyed the upstairs terrace with the view of the Acropolis. Highly recommend taking a walk and hitting up the bakeries located all around the apartment. I would absolutely recommend this place!

Stayed with five Italian friends in Acropolis B for 3 nights. We spent most of the time out and about but the apartment is ideal for people who want to eat/drink/cook there - fully equipped with everything you could need.Lovely residential area with everything you need shop: cafe/restaurant wise on your doorstep. a little away from the centre of Athens. That said taxis are very cheap - €4/€5. Make sure to spell out Imittou to taxi driver as the address as opposed to as another location that sounds very similar about seven minutes away. Apartment was clean with all facilities - we found 2 bathrooms a little tight for 6 girls, but we'll know for next time. All very efficiently run and everything explained very well, always happy to take your calls and advise you where to go and what to do. We were accommodated with late check out and given use of the roof terrace which is fab and has covered area, tables, sun loungers and we were able to access fridge in the apartment while cleaning was underway. Plenty of advice in welcome pack sent in advance on little known restaurants, information on the area, the people etc. Had to fill out a contract in advance which was quite time consuming after already having booked - however imagine that landlords, based on their experience have to set everything out and make sure it is read and understood. Great wifi throughout the apartment which was wonderful and we made great use of it. Space a little tight in bedrooms - but plenty of beds, pillows, extra covers - whole apartment very well decked out. Place was extremely clean and well kept - was struck by the fact that the cleaners put everything through the dishwasher when I popped back in to et some water -even though we hadn't used most of it (we ate out most of the time) which shows how thoroughly clean everything is. I would definitely stay again - personally with a smaller group (maybe 4) or if the 'sister apartment', Acropolis A, next door were available with a total of 6 people. However - price is less in Acropolis B so it all depends on your budget. Great roof terrace, spacious and comfortable, well furnished and pretty amazing to be able to look out over Athens as you sunbathe.

Who would have thought when I boarded a plane for Greece more than 20 years ago, planning on backpacking through the mountains and then heading north through then Yugoslavia I'd end up making Greece my second home?
But here I am, 20 something years later, running a fabulous Greek vacation rental business with historic homes & penthouses in Athens, planning Greek travel itineraries and leading small group food & wine focused tours around my adopted homeland and loving the life that I am lucky enough to be living. Of course I did pick up an equally crazy, workaholic Greek husband along the way, as well as a stray Greek animal or two!

Update: End of October 2016 .... This year Basil and I celebrate 14 years opening our Greek vacation rentals to guests from around the world. All these years we've been hopping between Basil's home city, Athens and Carole's home city of Chicago. Time and time again guests in Greece ask us if they can stay in our Chicago home while we're in Athens.... so we're finally doing it - we've just completed the renovation of a fab 3 bedroom 2 bath loft in our 10,000 sq foot Lincoln Park hybrid warehouse (which in a previous life housed a bar and a dance hall, followed by a costume and magic card factory and then a photography studio where probably every Butterball turkey advertisement in the 1980s was shot .... the photos, not the turkeys!)

So come stay with us ... and then stay with us again. Whether we share an ouzo in Athens or a beer and a hot dog in Chicago, we know that you won't be disappointed.
