    Fabulous stay at Maya's home in Athens. She is a very nice, cultivated person, always available and she does everything to make you feel at home and to make you feel happy. For certain we will come back. Michèle & Christine

    It was my first homestay and I really loved this experience. Maya is so gentle, welcoming (she prepared maps to help us find our ways from her home to the city center, she gives good advises, her breakfast were amazing !) and we've shared nice moments watching dance videos together ! I really recommend Maya ! =)

    Excellent. Maria est une hôtesse cultivée, passionnante et surprenante, nous avons vraiment apprécié cette rencontre. L'appartement est confortable et grand, l'immeuble est bien situé (à quelques 30 minutes de marche du centre).
    Nous reviendrons et/ou recommanderons avec plaisir ce séjour. :)

    Maria est une personne charmante ,discrète et à l'écoute des personnes .La chambre située en sous sol était spacieuse avec une annexe permettant de cuisiner un petit peu si besoin.Je suis satisfaite de mon séjour et Maria se débrouille bien pour parler....français!

    Maria was the best host I've met. She was really helpfull and welcoming. She knows lots of things about history and so on and it was a pleasure talking to her! A great and kind person. If you come to Athens, it's the place to be ;)

    Excellent séjour chez Maria. Logement parfait comme décrit sur sa page. Pas très loin du métro, quartier calme. Échanges et conseils sur nos visites. Maria est très simple et d’une culture riche. Agréable séjour. Nous recommandons.

    What a wonderful, welcoming host. Maria's spacious, private apartment is full of thoughtful extras. A glass of wine and crackers, a hot shower and comfortable bed were just what we needed after a long haul flight. The desk in the room has several informative maps, useful information and clear instructions for living in her home. She provides menu options for delicious breakfasts, and shared her extensive knowledge of modern and ancient Greece. Maria has thought of everything a traveler needs: the kitchen has drying racks, there is a 'mini market' basket of essentials that may have been forgotten, a sewing kit, writing paper, and secure wifi. The location is perfect, 200 metres from bus No 12, in a quiet street, with supermarkets and restaurants nearby. We would love to stay at Maria's home in the future.

    María is the nicest and the most charming host I have ever had. I have learnt a lot from her. Her place is wonderful. I really felt like being at home. Thank you so much! Gabriela, 55, Chile.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
