I have been in Athens a few times with family or friends and stayed in Maria's place twice, and I will not look for other places when I go next time.
It is convenient for everything, very clean and comfortable place. I felt it was my own home when I was there. Danilo is extremely helpful whenever we wanted to go somewhere. He picked up us from airport and drove us around whenever we asked him.
Maria's place is wonderful! It is a nice quiet neighborhood in Athens that is within a 10 minute walk to the Acropolis, and just a little more to the Temple of Zeus, Agora, old churches. After cultural experience we would go to Plaka or Syntagma Square, or just nearby the apartment for some of the many many coffee taverns, bars, restaurants, or street food stalls. We walked to the most places because the location is so convenient - walking is a the best way to experience the magic of Athens. Maria's friend Danillo was waiting for us with the keys at our arrival and he helped us get acquainted with the apartment and the area and was happy to answer to many questions that we asked. Maria provided a cell phone for our use, and we could call her or Danillo's any time in case we need assistance during our stay. We received a present on arrival - a bottle of a great Greek red wine. We had email communication with Maria prior to our arrival and they provided all information to help us navigate across Athens. Danillo drove us from/to the airport at a fair price.
I could go on on and about how happy we were to stay in such a clean and comfortable apartment during an amazing visit in Athens. The bakery across the street is amazing - bread, pastries, cakes, bagels ...
We are coming again!

I am very happy with my stay. The neighborhood is quiet, stores are available nearby for buying food and drinks, including the nice bakery across the street. I had no trouble finding the place on foot from the metro station in the area (traveled light). I found the description of the apartment accurate. I must mention that the apartment was very very clean and I found the welcoming bottle of wine a nice gesture by the owner. Overall, very pleased with my stay and the apartment is highly recommended.
