Everything you described can not make one that gives my apartment.
We were made to feel very welcome by Naja on arrival. She was very friendly and gave us a tour of the spotlessly clean flat.
The flat was as advertised except that the large terrace was not really usable and appeared to be shared with neighbours.
The flat was a little cluttered with no wardrobe / cupboard space allocated for guests.
However the flat was spacious and we had full use of all facilities - washer, dishwasher, cooker, etc. A cleaner visited every 2-3 days and did a great job.
Location was fantastic, stones throw from the vatican, a selection of great restaurants and a fantastic food market, literally across the road selling amazing produce, meats and cheese.
Naja responded very promptly to calls and texts and was flexible about arrival and departure times. Thank You Naja, we had a lovely week in Rome.
Très grand logement avec 3 superbes terrace dont une avec une vue sur la basilique st pierre...hôte très attentionnées à nos besoins et toujours disponible.
Great location (5 min walk to vatican) in a upscale neighbourhood! Naja has a great taste so I am sure everybody will feel very welcome in this great apartment! Ciao
Naja made us feel very welcome. She was very sweet and thorough in giving us information about her flat. The neighborhood feels safe and has a lot to offer. It is close to the metro and the Vatican. The elevator was very small so you may be walking up all 6 flights if you cannot fit in with your luggage, but without luggage 2 people can fit. The last flight of stairs is not accessed by the elevator so you will be carrying your luggage up one flight. 3 of the 4 doors require a key to get out which is a fire hazard. We were instructed to leave the keys in the apartment when we checked out. The main door locks when shut, but the door to the staircase remained open. What was forgotten in these instructions is that there was another door that required a key to get out which made us super panic after we shut the automatically locking door. Luckily for us, there was someone at the bottom to let us out so we could make our flight home!
The apartment was not as spacious or luxurious as it looked in the pictures. Yes, it had 3 beds, but all of the rooms are connected by a hallway so more than 4 people would be knocking into each other when passing from room to room. There was a lot of clutter which can result in misplacing your own items if you're not careful, but everything was well dusted. I also worried about breaking something. I neglected to see on the listing that smoking was allowed in this flat. My fault entirely, but be aware. One thing that was upsetting is that a cigarette or two had been smoked in the apartment right before we arrived as there were freshly put out cigarettes in the trash can that made the whole house smell and gave my husband and I headaches. There were a lot of windows and doors to open which helped. Naja left us a very nice bottle of wine which was a nice touch.
We had a wonderful week in the flat with our three small children. Naja was responsive, helpful and very flexible with timings which was a huge help. The apartment had stunning views, was spacious and warm and we felt very at home. We would definitely recommend and return. The location is also superb for beating the tourist queues!
Naja made us feel very welcome. Her apartment was really very special in a great neighbourhood.
We were warmly welcome by Naja who took time to give us key information for our stay.
Her apartment is very spacious, very well located with nice terrasse and splendid view on St Peter basilic. It's very well equiped with even an operationnal fireplace.
We spend a very nice week with our daughters and visited all key Roma touristic areas.

About the Host, Naja
"Vivere per sopravvivere è una vera bestialità" potrebbe essere il mio motto che ha accompagnato il mio viaggiare nel mondo, un mondo in cui ho cercato bellezza ,armonia,sorrisi e gratitudine da scambiare con gioa ed allegria. Avendo da sempre lavorato con le Immagini ( prima nel cinema e ora più sulle immagini interiori) ho cercato che queste immagini (le cose che mi circondano) fossero belle. Per questo vivo in una casa molto particolare, quasi in cielo ,con molta luce,fiori,silenzio pur essendo situata nel cuore della Roma Antica e dove dai suoi terrazzi la si può ammirare ( Il Cupolone di San Pietro è a vista da tutta la casa.) La mia ospitalità è discreta ma accogliente: amo che chi arriva si senta a suo agio e possa godere con la sua personale disposizione ciò che questa meravigliosa città può offrire. Amo cucinare,la musica e,se capita l'occasione,offrire con gioa questa mia ospitalità.Non sono presuntuosa ma credo di avvere catturato in questa casa un pò di quella MAGIA che Roma dona ad ogni suo visitatore e sono molto lieta di poterla offrire.
