This was the house of my grand father and it's fully renovated by our hands. We have a special bound with it so please respect the stuff inside and if you book for many days in a row please give water to the plants at the entrance, they will appreciate your kindness.
We felt welcome an the neighbourhood was quiet during the day but very lively at night! Everything closes during the day for three hours but livens up later in the day. The place was clean, modern and lovely and cool!
Il polpo ubriaco è stata la mia prima esperienza su airbnb.
Casa comoda, arredata con gusto, con tutto ciò che occorre, ubicata in un posto comodo con bella vista.
I genitori di Stefano sono stati molto gentili, disponibili e cortesi.
Sicuramente appena deciderò di passare un altro week end a Gaeta sceglierò sempre loro.
A lovely stay in Gaeta. The apartment looked exactly as listed, was clean and very welcoming. Stefano's parents met us on arrival and were very nice. The two bikes were very handy for exploring the area. There isn't really a dedicated off street parking space for the apartment, we were forced to park right in front of the apartment on a very busy road. If you are sensitive to traffic noise then beware, as it is noisy up until late night with trucks and cars as the apartment is next to a set of lights. With the windows closed it wasn't too much an issue and could be dealt with. All in all a pleasant place to stay and would recommend!
Il nostro primo weekend con airb&b è stato "il polpo ubriaco". L'appartamento è confortevole ed accogliente, e con una posizione ottimale sia per i servizi vicini che per il posto auto praticamente garantito davanti alla porta di casa. I genitori di Stefano sono stati molto disponibili e cordiali. Vi ringraziamo per il fantastico weekend di relax e non mancheremo di ritornare da Stefano per la prossima volta a Gaeta.

L'appartamento descrive in sintesi familiarità e accoglienza. L'host è stato gentile e di aiuto. Abbiamo anche avuto la possibilità di usare due biciclette. Niente da obiettare. Perfetta prima esperienza con airbnb
I would highly recommend renting this apartment.
We never met Stefano but he was always very helpful by email. Stefano's mother Elizabeth was very hospitable and was there to greet us on our arrival . The apartment was very comfortable and spotlessly clean . They had thought of everything to make you feel comfortable . An extra surprise for us was the beautiful view from our lounge window !!!
Grazie per tutti Stefano

About the Host, Stefano
Trentenne, alto quanto basta, magro quanto basta, viaggiatore fai da te che non disdegna più il campeggio anche libero (mai stato in un villaggio vacanze). Amante della buona cucina cucinata e delle chiacchere in larga compagnia, con la passione per la musica, soprattutto swing, i balli anni '40 e le arti applicate (il giardinaggio rientra in questa categoria). Con una pistola puntata alle spalle tra gatti e cani preferisco i gatti.
Infine, informazione culinaria che non guasta mai, mia madre fa un'ottima tiella (pizza ripiena ricetta tipica gaetana), io sto ancora imparando ma spero di superare la maestra.
