  • Real Venice

    "This was our first trip to Venice and we didn't care where we stayed as long as it was comfortable, quiet, and affordable. This place sounded perfect, and we were happy that we received such quick emails from Barbara explaining how to get there and answering any questions. So -- here are the pro's and con's of our visit. Pro's It is blissfully quiet. No partying or stomping around of other tenants. It rained the whole time we were there so we were unable to sit in the tiny sliver garden downstairs, but it was very private and we would have enjoyed that. Our bed was heavenly -- soft sheets, great pillows, lots of blankets to choose from. We slept VERY well while we were there (and we were only there for 3 nights). Barbara has some great books -- they perch in many places and in many rooms. I wished I could have stayed longer just to read some of them! The apartment is eclectically decorated, which we enjoyed. The windows could be opened and you could see slivers of the Venice rooftops -- lovely. Her directions and suggestions were spot on -- and the person waiting for us was very sweet and friendly. She was worried that she didn't know enough English to explain, but she was excellent! The two bathrooms are beautiful! You take a shower and it gets everything else wet -- we thought this was a novelty and fun! Our son (who was 11) slept nicely in the living room -- we had to make up his bed, which meant moving a few hundred (just kidding) pillows, but that was fine. Had we needed to cook, the kitchen had everything needed --small, but who cares! The apartment is in a more residential area, but we walked everywhere with no problem, and that is with my husband who had just badly injured his foot and was using a cane. There was a corner cafe that we spent some time in just around the corner and it/they were lovely. A washer and dryer to use! That was wonderful! CON'S This was not really a "con" for us, as we enjoyed this bit. But if you have trouble with stairs, this is neither the city or the apartment for you. Fortunately, we thought it was fun and just added to the romance of our adventure there are two steep flights going up to the apartment. But for someone with bad knees or poor health, this could be a detriment. The final thing is that the owner asked if she could rip up the $200 deposit check. My husband said no, to please send it. And she never did. So we had to put a stop on it, which was disappointing."

  • retired U.S. couple

    "This charming apartment is located in the eastern part of the 12th arrondissemont, which contains no major tourist attractions, but is a lively, typically Parisian neighborhood. (And a short walk to the Marais.) There are a number of excellent restaurants nearby as well as the highly-rated Aligre market and one of the best boulangeries just across the street (yum!) There are also several excellent supermarkets within a short walking distance for those who wish to take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen in the apartment, or just stock up on breakfast items or snacks. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortably furnished with plenty of storage space. Some reviewers have commented on the firmness of the bed(s) in the second bedroom but our guests found them comfortable. Another positive aspect of the apartment is that it is very quiet, considering it is in the heart of a busy city. The hosts were friendly and helpful, eager to provide information on transportation, restaurants, etc. And any questions or minor problems were addressed immediately. In addition to the available wi-fi, there is a telephone which can even be used for international calls (within certain limits.) We have been to Paris a number of times and when we come back again we would love to return to this apartment!"

Croatia Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Croatia Vacation Rentals

Croatia’s climate is largely dominated by the warm Mediterranean Sea. The coastal areas in particular benefit from a relatively mild climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Because it is drier, summer tends to be the most popular times to visit Croatia. Even though it gets hot, there is typically always a cooling breeze from the Mediterranean that provides some welcome relief. The summer months are from June to September and the peak tourist season is during the months of July and August. For those traveling to Croatia for its cultural and historic attractions, you can benefit from off-season rates. Many of the attractions are indoors so good weather isn't crucial to your trip.
