The host was an employee, and he went through every detail attentively. The apartment was very comfortable, and conveniently situated. It was also clean. When I complained about the lack of plug, I was told I didn't need one, and they were tired of providing them, because guests damaged them. I pointed out that a disinfected bidet was perfect for soaking tired feet, but need a plug!! So it appeared the next day. Lack of wine glasses was also a slight dint in our otherwise very nice stay.
Thank you for your comments. We are a group of property owners and managers and we take great pride in our apartments. When you emailed us, you first said that you just wanted to let us know there wasn't a plug in the bidet. We replied indicating that for the intended use of the bidet a plug/stopper wasn't necessary and it had been removed because it had caused other guests problems. Then, when you replied indicating you wanted to soak your feet, we told you where to find the stopper under the sink. Since you never replied back, we made an extra trip to the apartment less than 12 hours later (since you emailed after 20:00) to make sure you had what you where looking for and put the stopper in place. We aren't 'tired' of guests breaking the stopper, but without careful use it can get lodged into the bidet and because the new style bidet is completely enclosed, when it happens a plumber has to come remove the entire bidet for something that isn't necessary. We prefer leaving things in the apartment that are user-friendly to avoid problems for guests during their stay. We have lots of experience and know works and doesn't work in Holiday rentals. Regarding the wine glasses, while we do our best to supply the basics, wine glasses are not offered in that apartment as they tend to break easily and there is a lack of space. However, there are a variety of glasses in which a guest can enjoy wine.
Very accommodating for arrival time. Met us at the apartment to show us facilities and help us with surrounding neighborhood. Plenty of places to eat and get groceries in the area. Short walk to Vatican and Metro. Apartment was quiet, clean and comfortable. A great place to stay for 4-5 nights in Rome.
We had a great experience renting from Cory! This apartment is a great location to see all of Rome. It is closest to the Vatican but the metro is easy to navigate and just about a 2 block walk. The apartment is located behind 2 locking gates- one off the Main Street and another into the building. On top of that there are 2 deadbolts on the door to apartment. We felt super secure. It was the perfect size for the 4 of us and typically European. There is a lift/elevator but we did not use it- not sure if it worked as it looked a little sketchy. It's only one floor up so be prepared to lift your bags :) Some have commented on the noise from the awesome farmers market behind the apartment building- we had the ac on and only heard them one time in the early morning. We bought the best olives, prosciutto and cheese from there -yum! And they have a great fresh fish market that is just cool to look at! We also used Rome for the holidays shuttle service which was the (email hidden)e drivers were on time for all 3 of the times we used them from airport to apartment, apartment to port for a cruise and again from port to airport. Extremely professional, informative and funny - with almost perfect English. Cory is an American living in Rome - so he has a wealth of knowledge and perspective that few have. Do yourself a favor and rent one of his apartments in Rome and have a great time!
Our host could not have been more supportive. They happily answered any questions and willingly help us to orientate ourselves in the vibrant city of Rome. This apartment is right next door to a fresh produce market open every morning. Local restaurants were good too. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very convenient. The washing machine allowed us to get ship shape. Cory and his team are very professional and they have tried to think of everything to make their guests comfortable. I do not hesitate to recommend this apartment.
We had enjoyed our stay at Cory's apartment. It is very close to Vatican and close to the metro station. The apartment is well equipped with sufficient cooking facilities. Cory was very organised and communicative. He provided us with a lot of useful information while our stay over there.
The living room/kitchen can be a bit dark during the daytime, as the window is facing the north. However, we did not stay long at the apartment as we were there for Rome. That did not bother us much.
We had a perfect stay in Rome thanks largely to Cory and his apartment. The location is absolutely perfect - out of the fray but close to the sites (the Vatican is right there and it's a straight shot on the subway to everything else). Cory met us right at the front door and walked us through all of the various features (and keys) for the apartment. You could not ask for a better host! The apartment itself is very nice with just what you need for a stay of almost any length. We were only there for four nights, but with a large-for-europe refrigerator and a washing machine it would be a great choice for longer stays as well. The market directly behind the apartment makes filling the fridge far too much fun! I can't imagine going back to Rome and not staying in this same location!
Cory and his apartment exceeded our expectations. Cory checked out flight and send me a text as soon as we landed. We agreed to meet us earlier than scheduled however we got stuck on traffic. He is very inviting to the 4 of us and explained everything with detail he had a map ready with recommendations. His apartment included a very helpful guide that has the best restaurants, bars and activities. We used this!! The apartment was very clean and comfortable and close to shops and restaurants. A few blocks from the metro and walking distance to the Vatican. We spent 4 days there and had a great time? We totally recommend Cory's place. Thanks so much Cory for everything. It was a great experience and we appreciate your quick responses and understanding and all the help and for having this place well kept.
