REVIEW: "We can tell you only good words about the experience. The house is nice and charming, neighborhood is great, connections to Manhattan very good and reliable. But what made our stay most unforgettable was the owner and her lovely son. They really made everything to let us feel at home, they were so careful and helpful on everything. It's not too much if we say that she did way more than she was supposed to do. We won't never forget them and we would definitely recommend such experience to anybody. Then we returned 2 more times and they visit us in Rome!"

Guest Access

Main floor is private later at night. (Please understand, my office is the main floor.) Cooking by permission!
Enjoy the garden! You can have gatherings there.

Interaction with Guests

I'm welcoming to guests and helpful, but busy! Casual, flexible, and NOT fussy guests will be happy here! Make yourself at home. I prefer visitors who plan to be busy, as my main floor is my office and is private space later at night.

The Neighborhood

It's amazing.
