I live in Chicago. My husband and I love to take our son all over the world so that he can learn about life in different countries.
i already wrote a review
Since I knew them already, I trusted them and left them the entire apartment, so that expceially at nigth they could use the kitchen and save quite a lot of money.I am happy the did. Not everybody knows that italian law requests the presence of the owner in the apartment when it is a bed and breakfast, while the owner is absent if it is a vacation rentall..The tourist has no time to think about it. My opinion is that a tourist that does not speak the local language and stays only a few days, has better stayi in a hotel or in a bed and breakfast, because he needs help and assistance.
Deciding to go away, I trusted Maria and her family to be able to face any problem or unwanted situation, such as for example the lack of hot water.
Mind you, a single tourist is fragile like a child of kindergarden, but a whole family has resources ten times as much. So I made my choice. If the Rome's town hall had checked, they would have fined me, but I preferred to make my guests happy. I hope I succedeed
Maria Paz her husband and their son were given the king room, and since they come back on the seventh, I'll add a bed for the child. The queen room was given to her brother and his wife,The couple of their parents I put in what I call single room to say immediately that although two beds can be squezzed in there, there is very little space left aarounf the bed, so it is only on rare occasione that Ishould give it to two people.. I believe they choose my house because it is within walking distance from Stazione San Pietro, where they picked up a train for Civitavecchia, a port where their cruise started.. A whole philippino family, 6 adults and an infant, what an experience for me.Luckily they were easy going an simple and unpretentious, and clean, I am now glad that since they know everything already, I will leave them alone in the apartment, on their way back to the states. They are the ones who can say whether I can offer the entire apartment again to this number of people or not, if the answer is positive, maybe the excperience can be repeated, not as a general rule, but maybe at Christmas time, when families enjoy the Christmas tree and the midnigth mass rigth across my street in the open air in the square, so even if cold, even the elderly could come.
