this property is privately owned and I hope that you will look after it during your stay, just as if it was your own home!
During your stay you are expected to:
- Leave the apartment in the same condition that you would like to find it in yourself.
- Leave it tidy for the next guests.
- Do not exceed the number of people for which the property has capacity.
- You are personally responsible for anything you damage. In case of personal injury you should always contact your own insurance company. I can't be held responsible, but I'm obviously available if you need help!
-Enjoy the apartment and have fun!
We arrived nearly 36 hours late owing to complications with flights from India and were greeted enthusiastically even though it was 2am. The flat is terrific, everything works, water pressure nice and high, and the neighbourhood is beautifully quiet.
The extra touches, like directions to nearby restaurants, public transport and food shopping, made the stay very special. We'd certainly visit again.
Appartement génial, quartier superbe à proximité de tout transport. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et Maria et son mari ont été très arrangeants. Je recommande grandement cet appartement. Attention à une chose que l'annonce ne précise pas et qui n'est pas forcément évident : à Rome chaque personne doit payer par jour une taxe de séjour (compter environs 5€/personne/jour).
Cette ville est magnifique !
The flat is very nice and clean. It is situated in a quiet and calm place close to train and trams directly to the centre of Rom. Shops and restaurants are really close i.e. within few minutes walking. Maria and her family was very helpfull and always ready to help.
Christmas in Rome - a familyreunion for our dearest ones from Finland, Sweden an Denmark was just a fantastic experince! Rom is breathtaking, we explored and enjoyed, we walked hour after hour in the nice Decembe Weather, just perfect with sun almost every day. Our haven, our home for these nine days and nine nights was Marias and her husbands wonderful apartment in Monte Verdi. Five adults could easily relax and rest in the beautiful house, the kitchen was small but offered everything we needed. We were happy for the dishing- and washingmachine which made the long stay possible. Maria is a warm, open, bright person who embraced us in every small detail to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The map Maria had made, with shops, restaurants, buses and trams,gaves us useful information. The daily market, just arround the corner, was our favourite pantry with the best Italy can offer – with fresh fish, vegetables, fruits, cheeses and wine. Whenever we return to Rome – we do know where to stay. Thankyou Maria - hope to see you again. And whenever you come to Finland - let us know - I am sure we have many things to share!
One night will nine - a lovely apartment in the heart of Janiculum -Trastevere - a wonderful haven for our family spending Christmas in Rome. Maria so welcoming opening her beautiful apartment which already is a safe haven. Yesterday with made some good shopping at the market very nearby and for dessert we picked up Gelato from the house on the other side of the street. Get back to you later!
Maria is great! We arrived in Rome and Maria was kind enough to pick my family and myself up to take us to her location. She gave us some food recomendation and told us how to best reach our requested destinations. Her apartment was very clean and in a nice location. We would definitely stay with her again! Thank you Maria!
