K38 Terrace is a stylish, cosy penthouse in the quirky area of Gazi. A perfect urban retreat that offers warmth and tranquility while still being only a step away from all the buzz. Treat yourself to a memorable stay and make yourself at home.
K38 Terrace is a bright 5th floor attic penthouse that has been designed with love and personal attention to make it a unique care-free environment.
In Gazi, one of the most vibrant, up and coming neighbourhoods of the historic center, really close to the adjacent hot-spot areas of Thissio, Psirri and Monastiraki (5 min walk through a lovely mural-covered street). K38 is conveniently located behind Gazi square, right next to amenities and the myriad of dinning and entertainment options that the area has to offer, yet just outside all the buzz. Kerameikos metro station (direct line to the airport) is less than 1 min walk away and so are buses and taxis as well (island hoppers note, the port of Piraeus is only a 10 min drive away!).
It boasts a spacious and bright open-plan living room and kitchen/bar, fully equipped (there's even a macchinetta for all you espresso-lovers and a juice maker and scale for the nutrition-concsious) and a relaxing attic bedroom with a double bed. Both areas lead directly to the:
80m² of sheer outdoor joy, with DIY hand-crafted furniture for a more natural look and feel and several seating and lounging options according to your mood and time of day. Kick off the day under the greek morning sun in the special breakfast area, sunbathe if you are too lazy to hit the Athenian Riviera, or indulge yourself to a hearty bbq meal (yes, you can use it, safely!) If the sun gets too much, enjoy a siesta on the sofa under the shade, or step in directly to the wooden-ceilinged bedroom for a cooler rest. TIP: don't miss the sunset!
Winters can be fun too. Read a book by the warm fireplace or explore the full potential of the home cinema entertainment system. A flatscreen 3D TV-DVD with Dolby Surround Sound and free access to NEFLIX, HuluPlus and other Apple TV streaming channels is at your service.
K38 is strictly a stress-free zone. However, should you need to briefly get to business or just to check your emails while sipping a morning cup of coffee, there is a large working bench in the open-plan kitchen or a more private desk in the bedroom for more demanding needs.
Access to K38 is unlimited. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa for a movie night, enjoy a drink at the kitchen bar or chill on the candlelit terrace. Oh and should you need any extra storage space there is a whole storage room at your disposal, ideal for sports equipment or simply for putting your luggage away and making yourself even more at home.
Prior to your arrival I'll be more than happy to answer all your questions and give you any advice you may need. Once here, expect to be greeted with a smile and get some invaluable insider's tips. In case I happen to be around the globe airbnbing myself, someone equally friendly and committed will be there to assist you.
All windows are double glazed so when closed you are isolated from the city sounds.
The only rule is to be my guest and make yourself at home, love and enjoy it respectfully as much as I do. If you really must smoke please do so in the terrace.
