Welcome to Athens First Luxury Duplex Penthouse








Traveling to Athens with family, but still want a 5-star experience? You’ve come to the right place.

Our Athens First Luxury Duplex Penthouse was the property that started it all, setting the tone for Greek Vacation Rentals with its modern furnished living spaces and amazing location right in the heart of Athens.

Light-filled and homey – but with all the little touches to remind you that you’re on vacation – this 3-bedroom, 2-bath sanctuary is located on a quiet street just steps from all the action. After your days spent exploring, step inside and fall into the American-style comforts of home.


The sun-soaked rooms are airy and inviting, with a fully stocked kitchen to delight foodies and their hungry families. Don’t worry, you’ll find all the needed conveniences to make dining-in a breeze (like coffee machine, dishwasher, and full-sized washer and dryer – a rarity in central Athens!).

The apartment is spread comfortably over two levels, making it a great choice for couples traveling together who want privacy; or multi-generational families keen to explore all the riches of the Greek capital.

With three levels of outdoor living space, you can wake up slowly with a cup of coffee overlooking the city or sink into a couch in the shade after a day’s exploring. There’s a private veranda on each level, plus an Acropolis view terrace on the rooftop. We can’t think of anywhere better to enjoy a glass of ouzo than overlooking the Acropolis and Mount Lykavittos.


The master bedroom located on the main floor has a plush Queen bed dressed in high thread-count linens, with the convenience of a bathroom with glass-enclosed walk-in shower right next door.

On the second level, you’ll find a bedroom with a double bed and a third room with 2 twin beds (ideal for globe-trotting kids), with a shared bathroom featuring an American-style bath-shower combo. The bedrooms sleep 6, and a sofabed sleeps 2 more.


You’ll find authentic Athens right outside your door in tree-lined squares, restaurants, and farmers’ markets. Your central location also means that the city’s rich historical center is just steps away. Walk or hop on the tram to visit the city’s top museums (the Cycladic, the Benaki, and the National Art Gallery to name a few). You can also study modern Greek life with people-watching in the parks and cafes you’ll find along the way.
You won’t need a car to get around Athens, but if you have one, we’ve got convenient indoor parking.


We know you want an authentic Greek experience – the food, the history, the people – but when it comes to sleeping and dining-in, you crave the little (or not so little) comforts of home.

We hear you. As travelers ourselves – who appreciate a great bed and a gourmet kitchen as much as you do – we’ve given our properties full American-style renovations, meaning our modern bathrooms are fully functional and luxurious (go on and flush that TP – we can’t say the same for other bathrooms in Athens!). You’ll also find imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, cotton-soft robes, and full-sized appliances to make your time in Athens as easy as pie (or a honey-soaked Greek baklava, if you prefer).

Make yourself at home at our First Luxury Duplex Penthouse, the perfect recipe for an authentic modern Athens experience.

Amazing Place to Stay and Even Better People
The apartment was perfect for our group of 11. We spent 8 days in Athens and never got tired of such a nice place. The people we worked closely with were Carole, Basil and Nadia. What exceptional and caring people! If you have ANY question or concern, they are right on top of it. In additional to an extremely well maintained and stocked apartment, they provide excellent vacation planning. Their recommendations for tours, day trips, restaurants and activities were perfect. Never a problem! The people they work with match their compassion. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to visit Athens. The trip planning by Carole was such a hidden gem in this great vactation! Looking forward to another visit to Athens and the Acropolis Sky Villa!

Excellent! Would definitely stay here again.
Apartment was excellent. Would definitely stay here again. Carole, Basil and Nadia are true gems. Thank you.

Great penthouse with fantastic outdoor areas
Great penthouse with fantastic verandas. Hosts are extremely helpful and can help you make the most of your stay! We did the acropolis tour with Maria, temple of Poseidon and corinth and Napflio with Nick. All the tours were amazing. Nadea made sure we had everything we needed including the sweet gift of a surprise birthday cake for my daughter. The flat had everything we wanted. We just wish our weather would have allowed us to use the rooftop and verandas more. I’m sure Carole would fix that too if she were able 🙂

Experience Athens like a local
We were are family of six spending Christmas in Athens. The location is amazing, you are right in the middle of a neighborhood with grocery, restaurants and shops steps away. And it was possible to walk/take a tram to all of the sights. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything needed to eat in, the washer and dryer came in handy. We used Carol’s driver to and from the airport which I highly recommend.

Great Vacation in Athens
Can’t say enough good things about this apartment. Fifth floor with elevator. Two great outdoor seating areas. Kitchen was properly maintained and well stocked for our visit. We were given great recommendations for tours (definately do the foodie and the trip to Corinth) and the transfers to and from the airport and port were seamless. Tony and Nadia, thank you so much! Back to the apartment…. great location. Two blocks to a cab stand. Great restaurants everywhere. Three bedrooms was perfect for all four of us. Clean, neat, great neighborhood. Would use again. Thanks Carole!

Great location and views
We had a great time in Athens and loved the Sky Villa. It was in a good location convenient to the most popular sections for shopping and eating and felt like we were with the locals experiencing Athens the way they do every day. The Villa was extremely clean and well kept, and had everything we needed in the way of conveniences, connectivity, appliances, etc. The best part was Carol’s tips and suggestions for what to do and where to eat, how to get around and great tours. Her partners for the transportation and tours were outstanding and well worth the fees. I highly recommend the Sky Villa to anyone traveling to Greece.

Perfect Athens headquarters
Our family and friends were in town for a wedding and Carole’s double penthouse suites were perfect for us. We loved the location, the view, the terrace, the appointments, the coffee shop downstairs. Everything. Also, Carole was a delight to deal with. If we return to Athens we will immediately see if her places are available.

Great Stay!
The stay was great. The owner and manager were available to answer all questions and were accommodating. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. We walked to all of the major sights and really enjoyed seeing Athens on foot. Some people might find the walk a bit long but we did take a taxi at night a few times and it was less than 5EUR anywhere. Wish I was back there right now!

Everything perfect. Thanks Carole

Great location. Convenient to all the major Athens attractions. Carole provided tips that were very helpful.

I loved it
Everything about this apartment is excellent, Carole , Nadia and Nick were all very pleasant and professional , I was in other apartments during my trip to Europe and by far this apartment is the best, it is well furnished well equipped and all what we needed was already there the moment we stepped into the apartment. If I go to Athens again , I will stay in the same apartment.
