Massimo is a very nice, helpful and kind person. We felt taken care of. One night he coocked the most delicious dish we've eaten during our stay in Pisa. He also recommended us a bike trip towards Lukka, Asciano and Calci (which is totally worth of taking). The room we lived in was clean and spacious. Bedding was freshly changed as we arrived. We have no objections for the bathroom as well.
Cons - If you're not a cat person (which - for the record - we totally are! ) you might not like the place because there are at least two lovely cats rubbing against your legs :) .
The road you'll have to take to get to center of Pisa is quite busy indeed. We came up with another - safer solution, but if you'll be getting back late, you could use some bike lights (because there are none). Here's the route we came up with (to campo dei miracoli, but to city center as well): (website hidden) . Also (it has been pointed out by other person in commentaries) the kitchen cleanliness could be a bit improved. And for those who like to stay in touch with the world while being on holiday - Wifi connection for mobile phones is quite weak (connection in the bedroom is practically non-existent).
A few things to note about this place: you will have to bike ride 4km to get to the city or walk 1km on a dangerous road to the closest bus stop. If you are allergic to cats or dust do not come here. There are a lot of flies and Mosquitos because it is close to the water. The place is a grubby but otherwise nice. The backyard and view is gorgeous. The room is nice though don't forget your own towel. Massimo was helpful on his days off to pick us up from the airport and take us to the city. It was nice to stay a little out of the city but not so easy to get around.
