We had a great stay at Benito's place in Ostia. It is located very closely to the city center which provided us with all we needed (train station, restaurants, gelato and a supermarket). Also the apartment carries everything you need, full kitchen equipment and enough space and a very comfortable bed.
We very much hope to come back soon.
The Mimmocchi family are wonderful hosts, they are very accommodating and did everything possible to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They respond very quickly to e-mail and addressed all my questions and concerns. They could not have been better hosts!
I stayed at the Ostia apartment for the month of August 2014 and had a lovely experience. The apartment is in a very convenient location, right across from the beach and in an area filled with beach clubs, coffee bars, restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, clothing stores, etc..
The pictures posted are a very accurate depiction of the apartment. I stayed at the apartment with my young child and the apartment is suitable for a family- there is one bedroom and the living room has a pull out couch and doors that close to make it private so you can have two separate sleeping spaces. Also, the building has an elevator which makes it convenient to get up and down with a stroller. The kitchen is quaint but fully functional and the bathroom has been recently renovated.
Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend staying here if you are looking for an apartment for a beach holiday.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, the start was wonderful, so I will definitely use the site again.
Benito's daughter and wife were very attentive and hospitable, gave us useful recommendations about the area. The apartment was nice, comfy and fully equipped. There was an elevator in the house. Convenient location, one minute walk to the free beach, not far from the train road which leads to the center of Rome. Great trip. I recommend.
Thanks for everything.
Very nice, clean apartment. Was greeted by Benito's wife and daughter who gave us nice tips for the area. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

About the Host, Benito
I was origiinally born in Italy, Migrated to Australia and now to and fro between countries in my retirement after working as a dental technician.
The holiday apartment is ideal for budget travellers and traveling with family to Rome and it's surrounds. It has a homely welcoming feel and you can feel completely at home.
I am bi-lingual Italian and English so feel free to email any questions about the area or the apartment. Quests have used the apartment for longer term holidays to explore greater Rome and have also found it easy to do day trips on the Eurostar and local buses to Florence, Tivoli, Anagni, frascati, Castel Gandolfo not to mention easy access to the historic centre of rome
