A lovely little retreat! I wanted a quiet get away and its exactly what I got - a quiet, private space with use of the garden. The room itself is great with equipped kitchen, good bathroom and all the facilities I needed. The place was beatuifully clean. Down the road is a fantastic coffee shop, deli, supermarket and general store. Use of the bikes was a huge bonus. Maria was very kind and picked me up and dropped me to the bus stop. I really enjoyed my stay here and I would highly recommend it.

Maria is very welcoming and helps you with whatever you might need. She picked us up from Rafina. The room is very cozy and clean and fully equipped with everything you need; if you search the room, you can find a booklet about the Marathon area, which is very helpful if you're searching for things to do or to visit and a CD player with some good music CDs. The bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is new and clean. The neighborhood is very picturesque and quiet, at a relatively good distance from the beach. Maria has two bikes, which can be very handy to go to the seaside. Maria is a smart and funny person; we really regret we couldn't spend more time together, but maybe next time... All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at Maria's house.

Response from Maria:
Thank you again for staying in my room and I wish you can come again and I really regret that we didn't have more time to show you some more beaches nearby and other interesting places. So, next time!

First of all Maria met me at Rafina Port, which was perfect after a four hour ferry ride. The room is as described and a perfect place for my needs. It is very clean and very comfortable - especially the bed and pillows. Having a kitchen was one of my priorities. A special gesture made by Maria was to have cold water in the fridge, some fresh bread and grapes and a yoghurt for my breakfast the next morning. I was delighted as not many hosts would think to put such thought into their guest. I like walking, so the 2km walk to the beach was good - there is a pushbike if you prefer to ride. Maria was a wonderful host - she took me to her special beach, invited me to share dinner with her and her friends and also took me to the Marathon Museum and other places of interest. The Museum is a must see when you stay - it is out of the way but very special. Maria herself is a wonderful person! She respects her guest's privacy but when you wish for company she is a delight to talk to and be with. She has a great sense of humour and was happy to share her knowledge of the history of the area as well as Greece in general. I feel I not only met a wonderful host but have made a friend that I will stay in touch with. Thankyou for everything Maria - it was a lovely week!

First, Maria is a wonderful host. She picked us up from Rafina port right on time and also gave us simple directions on how to get to Rafina from Athens Airport. The directions were easy to follow and it was a cheap way of reaching Rafina. Second, upon our arrival she had some food available for us which was really nice as it was very early in the morning. She also gave us a map with directions on how to reach grocery stores, recommended restaurants and the beach. The place was clean and tidy, looks just like the photos. Lots of privacy as well. With Maria being so kind and Nea Marki being a very nice relaxing place we enjoyed our visit and would return. Note: it is a little walk to get to the beach from the house, she does provide bikes which helps a lot.

Hi all! My name is Maria and I'd like to welcome you to my cozy apartment with sea view in Rafina or my house in Nea Makri, or even my beautiful private room, close to Athens!
I like walking by the beach with my dog and during the summer I go swimming almost every day!
I am a biologist and I work at a marine research center, at the fisheries department. I care about the environment and I have worked as a volunteer, occasionally. I like literature a lot as well as music!
...and I am an animal friend as I believe that we all share this planet and we have equal rights!
I love meeting new people and making connections that make the world a better place. I look for independent guests who can let themselves in and manage on their own (with simple to follow instructions that I leave for you!).
