From the manager

Looking for a supersize apartment fit for a large family in Athens? Acropolis View Alphaplus might be your perfect penthouse. With 3 bedrooms plus a private den, 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 an extra deep 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, a twin 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.

Further details indoors

The main apartment has two bedrooms, sleeping a total of 7 guests in bedrooms. TWO optional lock off studios add a third bedroom and bathroom and a fourth bedroom and bathroom, making this stunning penthouse the perfect home for family on holiday and a real bargain for 3 or 4 couples travelling together - each has their own bedroom and bathroom, with added bonuses not found in any of Athens finest hotels - This penthouse is the PERFECT hotel alternative.

BE SURE TO CLARIFY THE NUMBER IN YOUR PARTY SO WE CAN ENSURE THE NUMBER OF BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS.

Please note that this is not a shared accommodation. If you have not booked the lock off studio, no one else will occupy it.

Further details outdoors

Our Acropolis View terrace is point central for our relaxing guests. Relax in the outdoor living room overlooking the Parthenon and the Acropolis along with the rest of the city skyline or fire up the bbq for a mixed grill or traditional Greek "paidakia" (lamb chops!). Catch some rays on one of the sunbeds or enjoy a frappe or glass of wine in the late afternoon.
And although we have a fully stocked kitchen, if you don't feel like cooking there's lots of options for food delivery so you can enjoy a prepared Greek feast al fresco.
