OVERVIEW

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.

Reviews

Carole and Basil’s place was perfect. The space is extremely light and spacious and a really comfortable place to relax. The balcony and roof terrace make the apartment feel enormous and really transform the space with an amazing view. The hosting was hands on and intimate without being intrusive. The area has everything that is needed without being too hectic and I will definitely rent this place again if I return with a large group. Thanks!

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.

The place was amazing, and I was blown away with Caroles hospitality. She provided us with the best travel tips, nice restaurants and places to see. We had the best holiday in Athens – thank you Carole for that ❤

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 and the manager Nadia was perfect gave very good service. A cab station 1 minute away, € 5 to all important destinations.

Carole and Basil’s apartment is just lovely, relaxing, and homey, with incredible views of the city and the Acropolis. It’s located in a non-touristy, very safe neighborhood, central to everything. Carole and Basil are both responsive, open to questions, and will do everything to make your stay the best. Highly recommended.

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.

Great property, wonderful management team!
The information provided to us prior to arriving was superb. Carole’s recommendations for tours and local restaurants were spot on. The tours arranged through Carole were excellent. When the weather was too hot for us to go on the walking tour, Carole provided a recommendation for an alternative tour and made all the arrangements last minute. Our tour guides spoke excellent English and were extremely informative. We had an issue with lost luggage and Nadia made herself available to meet the Delta Rep so we didn’t have to spend a vacation day waiting for the missing luggage. Nadia (the local property Manager) was a ROCK STAR! She brought us a fan late at night due to the high temperatures as well as had the AC checked out / repaired on a Sunday. The overall attention to detail and helpfulness was excellent. We had 4 couples and couldn’t have asked for nicer accommodations.

Clean, roomy & comfortable
The beds were nice, the furnishings comfortable, and someone was always available to answer any questions we had. The rooftop view and patio furnishings meant we could top the evenings off at home after a day of touring, hiking, and general bumming around this beautiful city.
