You will always be welcomed by either Stephen however if I'm not around you will have the pleasure of my friends Nevyana or Vasia. I work as a tour leader which is why my place is sometimes available for rent.
I'm also a perfect person to ask for suggestions on travel in Athens and the rest of Greece!
Athens is a bit of a scruffy city but it's very friendly and fun and generally safe.
The city is still going through a massive financial crisis but it's still one of the warmest, kindest places I've ever lived. I love the Athenians and they are the reason I chose to move here!
This is my home so while I want people who stay here to feel welcome I would also appreciate that they take care of it and keep it clean and tidy.
If something gets broken please just let me know so I know to replace it.
The apartment is simple and nice. The area is friendly, safe and the neighbors are good people so please don't be too noisy.
There is no smoking inside the apartment but there is an ashtray on the balcony, please clean it when you've used it.
There is always a basic stock of supplies in the kitchen, feel free to use what you need.
Don't flush paper down the toilet, the pipes in Athens are old and terrible and become easily blocked. Use the waste-bin in the bathroom for disposing of this.
Enjoy staying in my home!
Lover of Greece, traveller and friendly man who likes to rent out his place while he goes on adventures!
I love the city lifestyle and my neighbourhood because it's an authentic slice of Athenian life.
I'm not always home to welcome you so my friends Nevyana or Vasia will be there to welcome you!
