Sin duda Giorgos fue un gran anfitrión, muy amable y atento en todo momento a mis posibles necesidades. Me ayudó a conseguir taxis, me dio información sobre transporte público y no tuvo ningún problema en enseñarme brevemente la ciudad de Chalkida nada más llegar. Con un anfitrión así y una habitación tan cómoda, ¡desde luego que merece la pena elegirlo!
I loved my four-week stay at Giorgos's apartment. The apartment was perfectly spacious; the air conditioning saved my life; I found the stove and oven to be totally functional; the apartment felt private and quiet and peaceful. I was working at a refugee camp in the area, and coming home to my little sanctuary every evening was a treat. The area is totally safe and walkable, and I was grateful to be off the beaten path a bit in a residential area, as it made my stay feel more comfortable and homey. The mini market around the corner is the BEST and I love the women who run it. I enjoyed jogging around the neighborhood and taking in the vibrant sights and sounds of Chalkida. The ultimate highlight of my stay was Giorgos himself. He was SO kind, SO helpful, SO gracious-- willing to extend himself at a moment's notice to help me with car rental, kitchen supplies, internet issues, taxi info, bus schedules, etc. etc. What a tremendous AirBnb host and all around nice guy. Thanks for having me, Giorgos! I hope your future guests enjoy themselves!
I don't have words to do Giorgos and his apartment justice. Neither do the photographs, the apartment is actually spacious and sunny. It's in the perfect location situated between the city center and the sea, both in walking distance. Giorgos honestly made my trip! He was a true life saver, on multiple occasions. Calling me cabs; spending all day with me when I lost my passport; and introducing me to other volunteers working in the area. Not mention he gave me a tour when I first arrived, and is a wealth of knowledge always available to answer all my questions within minutes. He's such a lovely man, with an exceedingly positive attitude that's infectious. Plus, if you need coffee delivered in the morning, he'll make sure it happens. Book this place ASAP, you will not be disappointed.
Giorgos is the perfect host! We came for a clean, nice apt and a 2 week stay in Chalkida to work at a refugee camp; we left with an amazing friend and a love for Greece! Giorgos went the extra mile to make our stay the most comfortable, fun and positive experience we could imagine. He made sure we had everything we needed in the apt, gave us tons of local advice about the sights around Chalkida and quickly became our friend. What a genuinely kind, open-minded guy! He told us he wanted foreigners to feel welcomed and comfortable in his country. Since we were working in a refugee camp, we also got to have great conversations about Greece and the local perspective. The apartment itself was everything we needed. The a/c is great; the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and the market around the corner has good produce and essentials. Laundry in the basement and street parking is easy. The area is quiet and safe at night. The neighborhood is ideal for a true small-town Greek experience. The market on the corner has amazing feta cheese; the beach is a 5-10 minute walk away; the routes around the island and to the mainland are close. Our only regret is not being able to stay much, much longer and enjoy Chalkida and our new friends more. Giorgos, we owe you a million freddo cappuccinos!
