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.
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

L'appartamento di Stefano è ottimo per passare un weekend a Gaeta; è molto comodo, ben tenuto e curato in ogni particolare.
Siamo stati accolti dai genitori di Stefano che sono state due persone davvero gentili e disponibili consigliandoci su spiagge e ristoranti per la sera e mettendoci a disposizione 2 biciclette! Il parcheggio gratis è sempre disponibile vicino all'ingresso di casa e la cosa ci ha fatto molto piacere visto che il sabato sera al porto non si riesce a trovare un parcheggio libero!!
Insomma..è stato un weekend davvero piacevole anche grazie al "Polpo Ubriaco"!
Sono stata al Polpo ubriaco per una settimana e non volevo piu' partire. La casa e' molto carina e curata nei dettagli, funzionale dotata di tutti i confort con una splendida cucina! Non ho conosciuto Stefano ma i suoi genitori sono stati molto accoglienti e sempre a disposizione. Ottima la location con parcheggio davanti casa. Lo raccomando vivamente e sicuramente ci tornero' il prossimo anno!
My friend and I spent 3 nights at "Il Polpo Ubriaco" and found it to be great. Stefano's parents went above and beyond what i'd anticipated, they picked us up at the train and also dropped us off there as well. We used the two bikes provided to get around into town and the beach etc. We liked "l'ultima spiaggia" best. The apartment was great, really clean, like mentioned by another reviewer, it's not for the light sleeper. We both really enjoyed our time there. It's always a great trip when you are so warmly welcomed by the hosts and even offered a few history facts. Thanks again!
Gaeta is a lovely town - Serapo beach is very nice, very busy in high season. The apartment was great, and Stefano was a great host - lots of info at the apartment plus we borrowed two bicycles which was really helpful and a nice way to get around. The only two small things were the bed was very hard (but that might be your preference!) and the main road runs right by the apartment so it's a little noisy but not too much of a bother. I would recommend it.
Siamo stati benissimo nella casa di stefano; i genitiri che ci hanno accolto sono stati gentilissimi e l' appartamento è delizioso! Assolutamente da raccomandare =)

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.
