Absolutely Perfect Stay
My son is studying abroad in Rome and Athens and I planned on visiting him for 15 days. We spent the first part of our trip in Italy. I was up late working on the Athens part of the trip and came across this property and it seemed perfect. I emailed to check on availability and Carole e-mailed back almost immediately. I loved the that she was able to arrange transportation to and from the airport and suggested and arranged tours. We loved the food tour and cooking class with Nadea, Nick made sure my son and his friend got to school safely and the last minute tours he suggested to me were great, and the time spent with Maria at the Acropolis on my last day was the perfect end to my stay. I will definitely be back. The place was beautiful-better than I ever imagined it. This was my first experience with Vrbo (I have always stayed in hotels) and it was perfect.
Thanks, Kristie, for sharing your experience with our RealGreece travel plans and our Acropolis View Alpha. All of us at RealGreece loved being able to play a part in making this trip special. And we hope like many semester or college year in Athens students, your son falls in love with Greece so you'll be able to return for more visits.
Carole, we loved your beautiful apartment and the neighborhood was fantastic close to shopping and plenty of restaurants. The apartment was very modern, spacious, clean and it had plenty of room for our party of nine. It had everything we needed for us to enjoy some great family time and views of the Acropolis.
We really appreciated all the help you gave us in setting up our private tours, transportation and for your recommendation to eat at Alexandrino.
We were also extremely happy with your professionalism, expertise, and for being so responsive to all of our questions and requests.
Thank you very much!
When 5 stars isn't enough
Carole and her team earned 10 stars from our well-satisfied group of 6 travelers. They earned an additional five stars for being excellent travel guides. The apartment was clean, roomy, and well-furnished, with fabulous views of the Acropolis (especially lit up at night) from the outdoor penthouse balcony. Transportation was handled seamlessly; Tony picked us up at the airport, took us on an excursion to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion to see the spectacular sunset, and delivered us to the port when it was time to leave. Nadea welcomed us at the apartment, and took us on an extensive food tour of the Central Market area, introducing us to Greek foods and shops we would never have found on our own. They made great recommendations for restaurants and sites to visit (including when to visit and how to get there). Attention to detail – Business cards with house address and map on back for taxi rides home, laminated sheets with directions for sampling ouzo (with two bottles provided in the fridge), directions for using the gourmet coffee maker, restaurant tips, etc. They even left snacks, coffee and a bottle of delicious red wine as welcome gifts for our arrival. I highly recommend staying here, both for the facilities and the “extras” Carlole and her team provide.
Best trip ever!
My husband and I are avid travelers and this trip to Greece was amazing! You can't beat the scenery and the food BUT the best part of our trip was meeting Carol. Carol owns and rents the condo we stayed in and she is the best travel planner I have ever worked with. From arranging picking us up at the airport, suggesting monuments to visit, to recommending restaurants and setting up a foodie tour and getting us back to the airport - everything was flawless and made our trip the best it could be. Our Acropolis View condo was fabulous. Perfectly clean, comfortable beds, great showers, you can drink the water out of the faucet, the living area was spacious, everything was well appointed. The best part is the beautiful view of the Acropolis from the rooftop porch/deck area. We had dinner there several times and watched the sun set and the Acropolis light up. The location is perfect, walking distance to almost everything and anything you would want to eat or see. I highly recommend this rental property but mostly, if you are going to Greece, get a hold of Carol. :)
A vey nice apartment clean, well furnished...

The AlphaPlus Acropolis Penthouse was perfect for our family stay in Athens
We arrived earlier than we had indicated, but Nadia was able to accommodate us quickly and efficiently. The penthouse is located in a very busy part of Athens, but it is easy to find and reasobly easy to get to if you are driving. The penthouse is large, clean with large terraces on two floors. The top floor terrace is well designed with comfortable seating and nice potted flowers. The views of the Acropolis and lycavetos hill as well as major parts of Athens are beautiful, especially in the evening hours.
The bedrooms are large and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped for a large family's needs. There is plenty to do in the immediate area including nice restaurants and shopping. The location is also very close to most attractions including museums, the parliament and many others.
The only negative was finding parking, but we were able to solve the problem by returning the rented car and taking cabs or walking.
We used Nick's service to go to the airport and we found him helpful and very charming.
Carole has done a great job organizing everything well for her guests. We found dealing with Carole easy, efficient and very professional.
We would recommend the AlphaPlus Acropolis penthouse to any family visiting Athens.
