Simpatica, gentile e premurosa.
Lunatica, permalosa e distratta.
Adoro viaggiare e raccontare del mio paese ai viaggiatori che si fermeranno da me!
L'appartamento di Brenda è delizioso, siamo stati benissimo, c'era tutto il necessario per rendere la permanenza molto confortevole. Non abbiamo avuto il piacere di conoscerla di persona, ma spero che potremo farlo in futuro, perché torneremo sicuramente! Un grazie al padre, gentilissimo.
Our stay at Brenda's was good enough. We had trouble initially getting to the station near her house, since the station is a small one and express trains don't stop there. But once we got to the station her house was very close by. Although she wasn't waiting at the station for us like she said she would be, since we arrived late, we were able to contact her through wifi at a hotel near the station and she came to pick us up. The town she lives in is very small, and we stayed here mostly to visit Florence the next day. Brenda took us to Vinci too which was a cute little town with good gelato and nice views and history. Overall staying with Brenda was good enough for one night to rest and relax before heading out to adventure in Florence.
Response from Brenda:
I've been waiting at the station for a long time under the sun and without lunch! And then I came back to pic you up in few seconds! :-D
I will say WOW what I lovely host! ;-)
My boyfriend and me stayed in Brenda's flat for four weeks in June/July 2013.
We found Brenda to be a friendly and very helpful host once we arrived (there was some haggle about the price beforehand) and we did have a lovely time. The location of the apartment was superb - Just a few minutes to the train station with connections to many towns and places of interest. Restaurants, a supermarket and shops were all within close reach. The apartment itself was clean, had plenty of space for two people and certainly had a lot of character.
Despite the apartment generally being pretty quiet, you did notice the surroundings. We had to get used to the chanting from the church that the apartment shared the bedroom wall with - especially at 8 am on Sunday mornings. Also, there were two dogs living in a small run off the garden who seemed quite easily excitable at times.
The garden was lovely (lots of lizards and geckos!), and was nice to relax in, although one should be aware that is it a shared garden and there are other residents who use it.
All in all we enjoyed staying in Capraia and appreciated the luxury of Brenda's weekly cleaning, too.
Response from Brenda:
Garden fornitures is not shared. It is only for our guests. There is our lovely neighborhood ( a couple) who helped us during summer ( from the 6th of July to the 21th) watering the garden. :)
The reservation was canceled 89 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We spent our most memorable 12-day Tuscany holiday here at this lovely place- It's everything as advertised! Perfect location to take day trips to nearby medieval towns, walking distance to train station, grocery store, restaurants, museums, olive groves, and vineyards. Great food and wines! Very helpful and attentive host made us feel at home and welcome. We will return!
It was our best Airbnb experience. The home was perfect located in a small town 20 minutes far from Florence with everything that you could need. Moreover, it was clean and Brenda and its family were very attentive to us.
We recommend this house and for that price you won't be disappointed.
I higly recommed your stay in Brenda's home: you will never regret it.
Brenda is a nice, enthusiastic, responsable person which will do all her best to fell you comfortable, and moreover the place is nice and ideal to travel to the most famous Tuscan cities such as Florence, Pisa, Livorno and Siena!!!
Brenda is really a lovely girl who would do everything for her guests. She is a honest and funny girl from Tuscany. She knows very well the most beautiful places in Tuscany and she will give you the best tips. Her flat is a really nice typical house with a wonderful garden, close to the station and very well connected with the most beautiful cities. What are you waiting for? Know Brenda, you will not regret it.
I`ve met Brenda while she was visiting Athens with her friends. Didn`t took me long to understand that she is a very friendly, nice anf honest person. I am sure you will have a great vacation if you decide to stay in her house. I do reccommend her and her house to everyone.
