Very nice family home-has everything you need with small children (incl baby bath tub, toddler toilet seat, many toys, garden, safe environment, etc).
Very nice, friendly owners, who help you whatever you need.
We enjoyed greatly our stay!
Only warning: beach which is in walking distance, next to the church has been found unsafe for bathing this year by Greek health authorities/has pebbles and too much algae. Thus would not recommend this beach for swimming (good though to have a coffee/play tennis-free courts and play with kids on playground and around)
Other beaches are around though to go to-but you need a car or taxi to go (only 1km away, but not pleasant to walk) either to the beach of the Lagonissi resort (very nice, but expensive to get in- even though includes lunch, so may be good option) or to the beach right next to the resort, which has also Blue Flag water and very nice sandy beach. This is the one we most visited and enjoyed from beach options.
We stayed in Lagonissi Summer House for two weeks. House is very clean an big enough for eight people ( 4 adults and 4 kids ). There is lots of toys. Kitchen is well equiped. It is close to shops and restaurants, and about 300m to the beach. Magda is great host - very helpful and kind person.

We had a wonderful stay at Lagonissi Summer House. The place is very clean, in very good condition, fully equipped and nicely decorated. The owner and her husband are very nice people who take care of all eventual needs. We were staying with our little baby and Magda arranged everything for us (including baby bed). Thank you so much!
The accommodation is clean, comfortable, quiet, functional, fully equipped and located near all the amenities. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room. All the windows have glass, mosquito nets and wooden shutters, so it's easy to maintain a comfortable temperature without being eaten by bugs - although there weren't many in any case. The beds were very comfortable with soft and medium-soft pillows. There is a dishwasher and more importantly a washing machine so don't bother taking loads of clothes, it takes no time at all for clothes to dry in Greece, especially at midday. The owner, Magda, couldn't do more for you. We arrived at midnight, she showed us around the accommodation. Then she returned the following morning to show us around lagonissi. She also showed us a map of East Attica and explained the public transport routes. She drove us around lagonissi, showed us the beaches and best restaurants. The beaches are safe, clean, populated but not rammed like the islands can some times be. Magda then drove us to the supermarket, bakery and fruit and veg market. She helped us chose the best local wines, meats, cheese, olives, etc... She was always contactable if we needed anything and we often called her to ask her to arrange taxis for us. She uses the same taxi driver, George, for everything - he's a cool guy. My advice would be call Magda to arrange a taxi for whatever time your going to eat and just ask George to take you to a nice meat, fish or traditional restaurant. He took us to a couple of nice places 10 minute down the road and picked us up a couple of hours later - costs about 25-30 euros total. If your in lagonissi for more than a week you'll probably want to do this at least once to get a bit more culinary variety. While in Lagonissi I also recommend contacting Beyond Athens, they can arrange all kinds of day and half day excursions and activities. They arrange all the transfers and fit everything around you. I did wind surfing and scuba diving lessons and mountain biking in the national park (no cars - amazing views). But there were many more cultural activities as well.
This was our first trip abroad with three small children and it was a great success. The property is very clean, very comfortable and comes with air conditioning. It is ideally located - being only a short walk from shops and the beaches. The property is a real home from home and has everything you could possibly need. - including some great toys for children! Magda, the owner, speaks brilliant English and went out of her way to help us. She arranged taxis to and from the airport so there was no haggling over prices with over tired children in tow; she lent us a stroller to help get our youngest to the beach; she met us at the property very late at night to make sure we got into the property and knew where everything was. From the property there are frequent buses that are easy to catch and take you into Athens (we saw the Acropolis and highly recommend the museum - go to the museum first to watch the short video on the history of the Acropolis and then go to the Acropolis itself). We also went in the other direction to Sunion to see the Temple to Poseidon. There are some gorgeous beaches along the way. We were grateful we took sea shoes as there are some slippy rocks in places. This is also great snorkelling territory so take your snorkel too. Magda is very trustworthy and she really helped make this a stress free holiday for us! We hope to go back.
