“This great apartment made our vacation wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

First of all, the thanks - to Sandra and Brady, who own this great apartment and have had considered every little detail to make our stay wonderful. They always promptly answered to all my e-mails and made me feel good about working with them. Additional word of thanks is to Stephanie, who greeted us at the apartment, made us feel very welcomed and showed how to get to most places on the map. Now, to the apartment itself - the apartment is a little bigger one of the two apartments that share entrance and a utility room with washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, and cleaning supplies. There are plenty of Rome maps at the entrance, as well as books and board games. Our apartment was clean and comfortable, having all the things to make us feel at home. We had enough dishes, pots and pans etc. in the kitchen, nice linen and towels. All the appliances were in good working order. The sofa in the living room can be opened into a double bed or two single beds, if necessary. However, the apartment has a shower (not a bath), which may not be as desirable to travelers with very small children (our kid was 7 at the time of the travel). There is a safe box in the apartment. The apartment is well kept and is absolutely safe. The wireless internet connection worked without any problems. The area has all necessary infrastructure with two grocery stores and a VERY nice farmers' market with EXCELLENT selection of seafood and veggies. We especially liked the boulangerie store for their great selection of smoked meats and cheeses on Marmarata street. Bus stop is about 2 minutes walk from the apartment. Make sure to remember that your stop is Marmarata Vanvitelli, as there are several Marmarata stops indicated on the signs at the bus stops :-) Number 23 bus and 75 bus go pretty much everywhere in Rome you have to go. Metro is a great choice to get around the city, but the metro stop (Pyramid) is about 15 minutes walk (nice area). Will we stay there again? Absolutely, yes! Will we recommend this rental to anyone? Definitely. The reasons: great owners who have thought of everything (in your confirmation package from them, you will get a map, booklet with recommendations regarding the area, the tourists attractions etc., and even bus tickets for your first trip (I thought it was very touching and considerate). Secondly, Stephanie, who greeted us in the apartment and to whom we could call with all our concerns (by the way, there is a cell phone with a local number and prepaid balance of 10 euros in the apartment). Thirdly, the apartment itself, having all the appliances and stuff you would need in a home away from home. Fourthly, the area, which is safe and has the infrastructure to support your needs (a bank, stores, restaurants, transportation, etc). By the way, if you are a good walker and are not pressed for time, you don't even have to take a bus to get to the major tourist attractions from the apartment, but that would take you good 30-45 minutes. We used taxi for our airport transfer, which was also arranged by the owners, and the taxi driver was prompts and very courteous. Thank you.
