Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in November. The location is perfect for exploring all parts of the city. The apartment was spacious with room for family to spread out, but we spent what time we were home on the terraces enjoying the view and wonderful wine. Loved being able to wake early to work before sightseeing and listen to the amazing bells and see the Duomo. Marianna was so helpful with suggestions and offering to arrange cabs and tours. We were fortunate in that we had family here but if you don't she is extremely helpful. The apartment had everything we needed and the beds are quite comfy. YES there are many stairs but what a great way to walk off all the amazing food. We would highly reccommend this apartment!

Rental location is ok. Property Manger was not

  • 2 of 5

The rental is located very close to some of the most visited sites (5-10 minute walk). The unit itself is on the 3rd floor of a building with no elevator. The 3 bedrooms are all on the same side of the apartment and on top of each other. I only bring this up because it caused an issue with privacy among the other guest who were staying with us. We could hear every word the other couple was saying because the walls are paper thin. The unit itself isn't that bad. I would probably give the rental 3 stars if not for the rude service I received from property manager. The day after we arrived she messaged me to remind me of the need to dispose of our own garbage. No problem. Not what I am use to but not terribly inconvenient since garbage dumpsters are around the corner. My issue is her need to send me another message threatening me with a cleaning fee if we fail to throw away our trash. A cleaning fee was already included in my rental cost so I guess it was an additional cleaning fee. During check out she tried to say we caused damage while we ironed our clothes. The thing is we didn't use the iron. One of the other guest brought a clothes steamer so we used that instead cause it was easier. After checking out the property manager found the need to message me and complain about us leaving some trash when we left and that some lights were on when she arrived at the rental for the checkout. I do not contest that lights were left on and yea, I might have missed a small bag with trash in it. Not sure if that deserves a message telling you that you are not nice. We also had an issue with replacing a lost key. I admit I was careless and misplaced a set of keys. I assumed responsibility and asked that she take it out of the security deposit. She refused and said I had to pay her separately through VRBO or she would not release my security. I have been renting through VRBO for over 10 years. Never have I been treated so rudely by a property manager. she even sent me a message stating that I shouldn't review my stay since she did not wanna review me. I want any potential renters to know about my experience. Was my experience horrible ? Not at all but nobody wants to deal with rude service while on vacation. The rental isn't cheap I just wish the hospitality would have reflected the premium price charged

Owner's Response: dear John I am very surprised with your review. You are really brave to write something similar after your've done very badly in my apartment: garbage left everywhere, iron used on a beautiful wooden furniture instead of in the room, cigarettes anywhere despite ban, oil stains and wine on the terrace, lost keys. scratches on the floor and wall due to suitcases. Rules at my home are simplex, but seems not for all guests... Everything after my kindness and availability (visible in all my 5 star reviews) was really sad. Unfortunately not all guests can be polite and respectful. Fortunately most of them are fantastic. Enjoy your life

The view of the Duomo and convienent location are great

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment with great views, less than 20 minutes to most sites by foot, and close to a grocery store make this a great place to be based in Florence. Two bathrooms with showers make it a great place to stay for a family or two couples.

An amazing stay in Florence, Marianna, Thank You!

  • 5 of 5

Florence is a city that will capture your attention in its stunning beauty, historic immersion of arts and antiquity, food and culture, diversity, and the people are friendly and generous. Our hostess owner/manager, Marianna provides a spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable residence that fully met our needs. The views from the apartment and the ease in traveling the city are remarkably convenient. We arrived at the end of high season which was still quite bustling, but had no trouble accessing everything we had hoped to see and do, and more. We walked everywhere except a bus trip out of the city, 7 miles, to the Florence United States cemetery, which is not to be missed for American tourists. We ate out and cooked in with a well appointed kitchen and dining area as well as outdoor deck seating to enjoy the wonderful weather. Airport Taxi transportation both directions was easy to manage, and Marianna was very generous in helping us in any way she could. This was an anniversary celebration trip of a lifetime for us, and we highly recommend it to other travelers.

Gorgeous, spacious, well appointed flat in the heart of Florence is a delight to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

This flat is perfect for anyone who wants to spend time in Florence. Literally in the shadow of the Duomo, you are conveniently located near all the important sites that you will want to visit. Marianna is exceptionally helpful with any questions or problems you might have. Be sure to ask her for her recommendations where to eat. The one close to the flat is exceptionally good but requires reservations that you can make online.

Air conditioning throughout the flat, three balconies from which to have coffee or wine and view the city, as well as a full kitchen makes this property ideal for anyone who wants to visit Florence while staying in comfort. Highly recommended.
