“Perfect host - going the extra mile”

person found this review helpful

Excellent location in a residential area away from the tourists but a 2 minute walk to the red line metro which has all of the main attractions and also the main train station for the express connection to the airport. My wife's bag didn't turn up at the airport so we were delayed in getting to the apartment but Massimo waited for us with the keys. He then spent lots of time ringing the airport and courier company the next day to track down the back and kept us updated with the information. He even came and sat in the apartment to wait for the courier so we could get out and see Rome! There are some small supermarkets close by for essentials but we would also recommend going to the market next to the apartment (out of the door, turn right, walk 30 mtrs and it's the building in front of you. Great apartment and great host

“A little gem”
Reviewed February 7, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Rome and we can't wait to come back ! Located in a very convenient area close to the Cipro metro station which made the whole city easily accessible. Massimo could not have been more accommodating and even met us at Cipro as our phones weren't working properly so we couldn't use our google maps to find the apartment.
The apartment itself was bigger than it looked online, clean and very comfortable.
We loved our stay here and highly recommend the house in the light.

“Close to Amenities”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The apartment is close to the Cipro metro station (figure out your route early on and it's extremely convenient) and a large grocery store on Via Andrea Doria (one block away), a smaller store down the block and even more importantly half a block from a huge covered urban market (Trion Fale - open from 7:00 til 2:00) with all sorts of food and supplies - just walking around is a pleasurable experience. It is well appointed although the shower is a bit of a squeeze for an L size and we did have trouble with the hot water as we unknowingly but mistakenly turned off all the radiators which shut down the water supply (not being used to Euro heating systems) as well the locks took a bit of getting used to. Massimo and Paola could not have been nicer, more reasonable and more responsive; excellent landlords and in the same building. The apartment has some noise at night (e.g. ambulances from the nearby hospital or vespas going to work) but earplugs solved that difficulty. It is also close to the Vatican and in a very safe residential area.

“Welcome to Rome”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Massimo & Paola are the perfect hosts and we felt as though we were extended family rather than strangers from the other side of the world. Travelling can make you feel very dislocated, but we felt very at home in this spacious apartment. I can't recommend this place and these lovely people highly enough.
Thank you.

“Beyond Expectations”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Our first trip to Rome and our host Mossimio made our stay wonderful. The apartment was clean and cute. Really has the flavor of a Rome neighborhood. Convenient to all attractions, walking and hop on hop off bus ,public bus and the Metro. A little market a few steps away. great local restaurants. The host really had a personal touch from day 1 to making sure we had a 7a.m. cab our last day.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Paola and Massimo are really perfect - from the first contacts till the farewell words. Prompt in answers, flexible to the changes and sincere in communication. Apartments are spacious, kitchen is able to feed even more than four persons, especially when local market with all Italian freshness is very close. With always hungry kids it is really important :-).
"House in Light" is located very close to the Vatican City and to metro station, so both makes simply for you to get from airports and to reach Vatican Museum, St.Peter and other places of Eternal City.

“Central, comfortable and felt like home.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The owners are very organised and promt. The apartment is just right for 3 people... the wifi, washing mashing, the well equipped kitchen and TV made life easier and felt like home. Bus/metro connection is just round the corner. The mini market next door and the Trionfale market just at the corner of the street made shopping very easy. Area very safe at night... restaurants and ice cream parlours at walking distance. Only complaint would be the noisy traffic... but I suppose that is normal in Rome; and one gets accustomed to it by the end of the stay!!
