Free parking on premisesThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

This is not just a great place to stay, come feel like your a part of the Italian culture. It is CLOSE ENOUGH to all of the main sights but not TOO CLOSE. Easily get to the popular sites, but step away from the tourist crowds and be a part of the Real Deal Italian life!!! You can have a nice home base and each member of your group can come and go easily to get their daily things right next to the house. Enjoy the friendly locals who remember you after the first time you walk in their shop.

When arranging our arrival, Heather said we had to make contact with a guy named Marco and that if he had to wait more than 30 minutes he would charge us 30 euros. We arranged our plans so we could arrive in time and when we got to the house it wasn't ready for our check-in. Marc…

Response from Heather:
Because we were not in town during this stay it is hard to comment exactly on the condition. We used the same cleaner and check in person for all of the stays and we had all positive feedback. Marco was there waiting for them and in the next apartment taking care of things while waiting but they didn't ring the bell for him to know they were there. They all appeared to be happy on arrivial and no problems when Marco was there. Both Marco and I checked with them several times to see if they needed anything or had concerns and they would not tell us the issues. This apartment is our personal home. But all personal items are removed other than books, games, cooking items and things that our guests can use. We leave half of the closet for our guests to use. Other than that, we don't have personal things out. We are sad to hear that these guests were not happy because we do our best to make sure our guests feel at home and are comfortable in our place, but it is imposible to take care of concerns if the guests don't communicate with us. We use clean and unstained sheets for our guests and the towels are large white towels. All I can say is that the cleaner may have confused some of the old ones because we were not there. I really can't say, but in the future this will never happen. I guess 1 unhappy guest out of 99 is not too bad. I hope they have better experiences somewhere else. :)

Heather's home is brilliant for large parties - lots of space and so convenient for the centre of Florence. We walked everywhere and loved it. A fab coffee shop on the corner as well as the often needed gelateria ;)

Heather's place was spacious and the location is perfect. We felt like home there and ended up staying for an extra night. Every room has a fan and there's AC in the living room so we didn't have any problem with the hot weather. They have a guidebook which was very helpful. Heat…
