Recent Europe reviews

  • Wonderful Experience

    "We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment (1st floor by European description) at the beginning and again at the end of our European sojorn. The large apartment is flooded with sunshine, very light and airy. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Very well located for side-trips to WWI memorials & museums, Brussels, Bruges and other Belgian locations. Our hostess Alexandra was very gracious, helpful and informative. We hope to see her again during our next visit."

  • Beautiful and Modern Apt. in a Terrific Location

    "This apartment is the only place we want to stay when we go to London. It is modern and well-appointed with almost-new appliances. The bed is comfortable as are the living room couches. The wifi works flawlessly. The well-appointed kitchen for the occasional in-house meal is very convenient. And the washer and dryer made packing easy! The best part is Location, Location, Location! This apartment is right next to Leicester Square. Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and numerous restaurants are a short walk away. Even more important, not more than 100 yards from the apartment is the Leicester Square underground station. In a 2 week stay we never waited more than 2-3 minutes for a train. We bought passes good for 7 days of unlimited use within the inner city, saving us lots of money. We also used the underground from and back to Heathrow for much less than a taxi or shuttle would have cost. Check out a first-rate little restaurant called Bill’s nearby that became our go-to restaurant for a reasonably (for London) priced breakfast ($25-$30 for 2). Try the fresh mint tea or the hot chocolate with cream. Yum! We have rented half a dozen places in our travels. This is the best one yet!"

  • Sacre Coeur Apartment

    "We stayed here six nights in August. I think the price was fair because the apartment wasn't as big as it appeared in the pictures. Luckily we had the 2nd bedroom for our teenaged son because we would have been in each other's laps otherwise! It's ironic that the heading for this listing says "Calm" because this was the noisiest place I've ever stayed in my life! The apartment's windows look out at the trams that run to Sacre Coeur, which are loud and are open late into the evening. There must be a park nearby because every single night there was a concert going on. Sounded like the same group each night and if you absolutely love "Free Fallin" by Tom Petty sung off key 5+ times a night then you're in for a treat! Once the concert ended we listened to drunk people outside the window, yelling into the early morning hours. (One night it was a young man who was upset about something and spent several hours sobbing and lamenting while his friends tried to talk to him. Unfortunately I couldn't understand what he was saying!) Several nights AFTER the drunks went home we listened to what sounded like Electronica being played from inside the building. Needless to say we got little sleep. What's funny is when I read the check-in instructions at home before we left, I made sure my son and husband knew about their noise policy. It goes on for over a page about using quiet voices in the apartment, not letting your luggage bang on anything, taking off your shoes, moving things softly, even keeping young kids from jumping and running around in the apartment. I can only figure they want it so quiet inside so you're able to hear everything going on outside your window clearly. Must be Tom Petty fans! My suggestion to any Americans staying here is to read the check-in instructions closely and maybe copy them over into bullet points. It's not written by someone who speaks English and was really confusing! After travelling 15+ hours we spent several more hours trying to figure out how to get the key. My poor husband traipsed around Paris in the dark before finally enlisting our teenaged son's help while I stood guard over the bags in the rain. The view from this apartment was incredible and it did have some charm. The washing machine (no dryer) was a huge help and the kitchen was fairly well stocked. I would definitely recommend this apartment to people who don't mind noise and are heavy sleepers!!"

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.
