My husband and I stayed here with our adult son for 2 superb weeks and it was the perfect apartment for us: very spacious, excellent A/C, immaculate, identical to the photos, located amidst every amenity and style of eatery, 15 minutes by bus to downtown Rome and easy walking distance to many local sights. Quiet, safe residential area so you get away from the "maddening crowd" when you want to. Massimo is an impeccable host, returned my emails immediately, met us here on arrival day, explained all, and made us completely at ease from the moment we enquired about booking his apt. Will absolutely rent casa Melinda again and recommend Casa Melinda 100%.

I cannot give enough stars to this apartment for its cleanliness, beautiful decor, amenities and quality. Everything from the Persian rugs and China to the high-end furniture and linen made us feel like we were staying in our own luxury home in Rome. Our hosts were charming, efficient and very helpful making suggestions for local restaurants and arranging our taxi on our final day to the airport. I think this is the nicest apartment I've ever rented and yet the price was very competitive.

The only challenge we had was the distance from the heart of Rome but if you're open to taking taxis, the metro and/or busses, which are easily accessible, it is well worth the effort. There are some attractions nearby but the main ones like the Trevi, Vatican, Borghese, Pantheon, and Spanish Steps are not really within walking distance. This part of Rome makes you feel like a local and gets you away from the crowds, traffic and noise. There are shops, cafes and restaurants just steps away. I really looked forward to coming home in the afternoons to Casa Melinda.

The most wonderful holiday rental experience of our lives! Working with Massimo was exceptional. This lovely gentleman and his wife met us at their lovely apartment. Gave us tour. Gorgeous bedrooms, comfy King Size beds, beautiful closets. Modern big bathrooms. And the character, especially in the living room, you really are in Rome! The fantastic kitchen and all the heavenly china! Anything and everything...even garlic!! Massimo sat with us going over a large map of Rome, important sights to see, a binder filled with incredible information, American breakfast a few doors down, delicious!!! Modern appliances; a linen closet filled with luxurious linen. If you are 2 couples this is the apartment for you! Privacy for both. LOCATION LOCATION!!! Grocery, wine, fruit markets, it's all there. 15 MINUTE WALK TO THE COLOSSEUM and wonderful restaurants. And what better way to end each day, coming home to Casa Melinda, so quiet and lovely, a glass of wine on the sweet little deck to cap off our day in Rome. A dream holiday. Thank you Massimo!!!

The Perfect Rome Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment delivers even more than it promises. Everything was perfectly described - spacious, comfortable, incredibly clean, well located - but above all it felt like a home and that made all the difference to our stay. We immediately felt relaxed. Massimo was there to greet us and was very welcoming with a tour of the apartment and so helpful with details of the local area. He has prepared a very informative folder containing details of everything near to the apartment. There are many sights within a 20-minute walk (e.g. Colosseum, Basilica, Baths of Caracalla, Appia Antica) but Rome is such a wonderful city to stroll around, most of our time was spent on foot rather than public transport. We can honestly say that this is one of the nicest properties we have rented and has left us with warm memories of our stay! Grazie mille Massimo.

This is a GREAT place. Conveniently located, well-appointed with everything we needed for a terrific time. I would not hesitate to stay here again and again, and I will whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone and everyone. And I'd say that even if my name weren't Melinda! Lol
