Complete house, charming, uncomplicated, in a huge condominium with natural woods, golf, tennis, horses, pool, bars and restaurants; in a residential area with good shops, international banks, restaurants of various styles and supermarkets, approx. 30/40 minutes from downtown. There is good public transport. I am a great hostess, uncomplicated, happy and ready to make things right! I like music, from classical to rock, and I prefer rock. I like to dance, cinema and cooking. The house, recently renovated, has a modern style with an elegant touch of ethnic Africa; each room has large doors that give onto the garden, the bathrooms are modern, the kitchen is complete with a large door and window to the other gardens; the dining room and comfortable living room give onto the garden too. Our difference is in the location between town and country, and half an hour by car from the beach! with a live-in domestic help, and the easy-going style of life I lead.

Towards the end of our Europe week, we wanted a nice relaxing place and Marta's place is just perfect for that.. Its a nice big room with private bathroom and a lawn where we spent good time enjoying morning tea in the sun.
The best place about this stay is Marta. She is very friendly.. always willing to walk the extra mile to make her hosts comfortable. She picked us from the train station and dropped us back several times. She patiently explained us with a hand drawn map on what to see and how to travel. You should meet her once and see the positivity she brings in to the life. Very recommended airbnb.. I look forward to have Marta in our Himalayan school in India.
Marta is a great host and is very nice. Made us feel right at home. Dogs are very well behaved and friendly. Was a pleasant experience for my first airbnb stay.
Avant notre arrivée chez Marta, elle était très disponible par e.mail et nous a expliqué en détails comment se rendre chez elle, ce qui nous a permis d'éviter un tas de recherche. Seulement, une fois que nous sommes arrivées Marta n'était pas là, nous n'avons donc pas vu qui nous recevait et n'avons eu aucun échange avec elle. La maison était sale et ne ressemblait pas aux photos, où elle avait l'air très agréable. Le matin, nous nous sommes retrouvées enfermées car la poignet de la porte était en mauvaise état. Nous sommes déçues de l'accueil et des lieux.
Je suis desolee que la maison n'etais pas propre. En effet, je du partir last minute mais j'etais sure que le garçon de menage aurais laisse la maison propre, come toujours. La poignet de la porte n'etait pas en mauvais etat, absolument pas. Il y en a deux. Il fallait seulemet user la deuxieme. Quand Emma m'a appelle je jui est dit la quelle ouvrait la porte.
This was one of the most awful stays that my family and I have had. We travel to many places and we have never come across a place like this. For starters Martha wasn't home when we discussed a time to meet, and after an hour wait her housekeeper came who barely spoke English. That was the smallest problem. We had then found out that Martha had to huge dogs, which we were not warned about. We were then lead to our rooms through her living room that was extremely dirty and smelt like urine, once we arrived into our room we saw that it was a little cleaner but still dirty. We didn't feel safe nor clean sleeping there. My family and I were extremely disappointed in the stay and we couldn't believe that a place like this was put out for rent. We would suggest you find another place.
Marta gave us a great welcome on our first night in Italy. Her warm personality and kindness ensured that we felt very much at home in her house. Marta was also very flexible in the time of our arrival, and provided us with a great restaurant recommendation. All in all, a very pleasant stay!
And it was great to have you with us, Lotte!
Thank you for the suggestions on how to improve: To get to the house you will have to call me at the security gate, and from there more instructions are given. This is a gated compound where security is the top priority. Politicians, diplomats, and celebrities live here so they want to make sure their security is well kept.
As for the dogs: it is in the description of the room.
Thank you again!
Marta truly went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. She is very quick to respond to any questions, and while we were at her place she even drove us to the grocery store and train station. I caught a cold and she offered medicine and extra blankets. She is a wonderfully caring woman!
The apartment is quite far from Rome's city center. At least an hour with transfers between train/bus/metro. There is not much to do near the apartment, the closest restaurant is about 20 minutes walk away. There was wifi in the living room but not the bedroom. For those with allergies, be warned there was some mold in the bedroom.
Overall the apartment is a good option for people on a tight budget who don't mind a slightly arduous journey to the city center. Marta is a wonderful host!
This guest + boyfriend chose the house exactly not to do anything, to get a break after a lot of travelling, before moving to a hostel in historic Rome a few days later to explore it.There are plenty of things to do around the house; it's an upper market gated condominium, with semi-olympic swimming-pool, restaurants and bars, pizzeria, golf, horseback riding, plenty of safe areas to jog, run, walk. All activities open for guests. And above all, relax. If you're not interested in any of those things, and want historic Rome, don't stay here.She's the first guest to have problems with wifi. They stayed in my personal bed-room and it's also my study. I use wifi 24/24It's not as hard to get to the house as she claims; I gave her FULL instructions; she knew about the buses and trains; maybe she was just too tired.They stayed in the room the whole time and never mentioned the mold on the walls. I left the room completely tidy and ready for them then I was away for a couple of weeks. It rained a lot and some patches of mold did appear. But she never told me about it. It is a very simple thing to be removed. Again, nobody complained about it before her because there had never been any mold before.
