Looking for a supersize apartment fit for a large family in Athens? Acropolis View Alphaplus might be your perfect penthouse. With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and an open-concept, soccer field-sized (almost) living area, up to 12 people will find plenty of room here - all with a lovely view of the Acropolis and Mount Lykavittos.

A TERRACE TO REMEMBER

The landscaped terrace (shared with the next-door Beta Penthouse) is our pride and joy. It has outdoor dining, a BBQ grill, and nap-worthy lounging sofas that take full advantage of the view. At nightfall, the terrace view glitters with city lights and moon-washed Mount Lykavittos. We'll even cater a full breakfast or host a wine-tasting for your group out here. Talk to us!

And ask us about renting both AlphaPlus AND Beta to accommodate an even larger group of up to 24 people - with this arrangement the gorgeous terrace is all yours.

AN AMERICAN-STYLE RENOVATION

In Greece, the definition of "rehabbed" is a bit different than ours. For Greeks it means "slapped on a new coat of paint/installed new kitchen cabinets." But Greek Vacation Rentals' version of rehabbed means totally transformed. At the Acropolis View Alphaplus Penthouse, upgrades include all-new, American-style plumbing (TP flushing encouraged!), plus brand-new appliances and Sealy Posturpedic mattresses imported from the US and wrapped in buttery-soft, high thread-count linens.

Foodies love our kitchen, which we stock to the heavens with small appliances, cookware, and other gadgets. Even a multi-course holiday feast is no trouble here! After a long, leisurely shared meal on the terrace, a dishwasher is on hand to help with clean-up.

We also have a full-size washer and dryer for your clothes, too - a rarity among Athens vacation rentals.
3 BEDROOMS/3 BATHS

We have 3 bedrooms, with beds for 10 people plus a sofabed for 2 more. The master suite has a king bed and a twin, making it a great option for a family with a youngin' they want to keep close. The indulgent master bath has an American-style bathtub/shower combination with a jetted tub and hydro massage shower jets.

The 2nd bedroom is also family-friendly, with a queen bed and two twins. A 2nd bathroom on the main floor has a walk-in shower. All bathrooms have Organic Greek bath products and fluffy robes.

Upstairs, a 3rd bedroom - also a suite - has a queen bed and a walk-in shower in the attached bath.

DOWNTOWN LOCATION

Our downtown residential neighborhood is in the thick of things! Here, locals sip coffee under shade trees at the cafes and watch their kids play in the "platieas" or "squares," then browse the farmers markets for dinner ingredients.

From the AlphaPlus Penthouse, you can walk to the historic center of Athens - or take the trolley just 4 or 5 stops - and experience some of the best museums in downtown, like the Benaki, the Cylcadic, the National Art Gallery, as well as Syntagma Square and the National Gardens.
As Greek Vacation Rentals third property, we really found our footing with the AlphaPlus Penthouse! We consider it the culmination of years of learning what our guests want from an authentic-yet-indulgent Athens vacation.

Great Apartment in Athens!

Date of Stay:

Our group of ten stayed here in June 2014. We were 8 adults and 2 children. This apartment was great--it was wonderful to have a kitchen and laundry facilities, t.v. and internet. The owners also provided a delightful "welcome basket" with some treats to try--a lovely touch. We also had access to a rooftop terrace--beautiful and wonderful additional space to hang out. It was a little cumbersome that to reach the rooftop terrace, you had to walk through one bedroom. But that is a very minor issue. If you book one of the properties from this group, I would HIGHLY recommend booking the ATHENS FOODIE TOUR, which was a walking tour of Athens. The tour guide, Nadia, was truly delightful and gave a great tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We also used the services of driver Paul to take us to Cape Sounion...I would also highly recommend him and visiting Sounion. It was beautiful. Overall, this is an excellent rental for a group, especially if you want to experience a true slice of life in Athens.

Our family of nine including the baby and toddler, loved it.

Date of Stay:

Thank you for the great advice you provided for our vacation to Athens, including the lovely accommodations at the Acropolis View Alpha Plus, tours, and transfers. Your place is conveniently located just a few minute taxi drive or short walk from the main sites. The flat was spacious, well kept, and comfortable, especially the terrance. What a view! Our family of nine including the baby and toddler, loved it. We were in town for a family wedding. I was happy that some of our extended family could join on the tours that you arranged, including the Acropolis, Poseidon and Foodie tours. This made them extra fun. All of our family commented on how good the tours were, the guides helpful and flexible, thank you! The Acropolis Tour was a perfect start, and the guide was great. Our Poseidon tour was fun and relaxing, thanks to a great guide, Frank! We loved getting to go to the beach, what a good choice. Nadia did a fabulous job on the Foodie tour with our large group of 14. This was the highlight of our vacation!! The pace was perfect as it allowed us to stroll through Greece neighborhoods, nibbling on numerous interesting foods. We especially appreciated how relaxed this tour was, allowing us to visit with our family along the way, almost like a walking family reunion! We loved the breakfast pastries and Greek coffee. The meat and fish markets were fascinating. The tour included a magnificent feast at a great restaurant, just awesome. Please thank Nadia for us! Lastly, I want to complement the drivers that provided our transfers. It was nice to know that this was all taken care of ahead of time. We'd highly recommend your place - 5 star!

“Family and friends loving Athens”

Date of Stay:

Our five night stay in the Acropolis View A&B was wonderful. All thirteen of us were very comfortable with the accommodations. We travelled from the United States and for the first time that all 13 of us have been together considering that we reside in Las Vegas, NV, Reno, NV and Houston, TX. We all enjoyed the city of Athens, the culture, the locals and of course the food! The penthouse is located near the center of Athens that it was easy to get to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Temple of Zeus, and the old Olympic Stadium as well Plaka (souvenir shopping). I have extended family that lives in Greece so it was easy for us to get together. I want to thank Carole and Basil for taking the time with all the questions I had prior to arrival as well as thank Nadia for her help while we were staying at the penthouse. Nine of my travelling group visited Greece for the first time and they enjoyed it so much that they want to return. Thanks again for a wonderful experience from beginning to end from all of us. Tom.

The Apartment made the vacation

Date of Stay:

Without a doubt the location, amenities and the spaciousness of the apartment really changed a trip into a true vacation. All the comforts of home with a panoramic view of Athens, including the Parthenon. Frankly, it was better than the comforts of home, with everything a traveler would want in this nicely appointed apartment. It was a cool oasis for relaxing or re-energizing after an amazing day of touring or exploring Athens on our own. If you like to cook the kitchen is fully equipped and supermarkets three blocks away. If you don't like to cook, there are plenty of restaurants within a block or two to eat there or grab takeout and eat on the apartment's terrace. Breakfast for us was simply choosing among the three bakeries within a ten minute walk to pick up fresh, delicious baked goods. Having traveled several times in Europe before, I know the beds can sometimes be "utilitarian" at best. The beds at the apartment were perfect, however. Comfortable, spacious and just right for a great night of sleep or just a power nap before going out for the evening. Carole, the owner, was extremely helpful in planning all aspects of our trip. She arranged for Athens area tours (described in detail other reviews) and airport transfers as well as gave expert advice on our far flung travels, including Crete. She is a gem. When ever we had any questions about the apartment, the tour arrangements, or general questions about Greece, Carole or Nadia (the local manager) were ready with answers. We had a few last minute changes and Nadia handled them with aplomb. If you have plans to visit Athens, this is the place to stay.
