Great Apartment near the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at this apartment. Only 2 blocks from the beach and restaurants. The owners/ property managers are amazing! Always available and very helpful with information and directions. If you have a car you can go to the port and shop in the mall. On Saturday there is an outdoor market in across from the port. Gaeta is the next town over which is also amazing. Highly recommended. Also easy travel on the ferry. The apartment is just like the pictures but the kitchen is small, so don't plan on cooking big meals. Great for snacks and breakfast or lunch. We were five people and were very comfortable here. It is on the top floor without a lift so be prepared to climb the stairs with luggage. Worth the trip up. We would stay again and are planning our trip again next year.

After 5 days in this house I really don't want to go back home. Great location, lovely interiors and furnitures, everything was as you can see from the pictures, even better!

The place is not noisey at all, and you need to walk for less than 2 minutes to sit on the sand.

My wife and my children was so happy about this house, you can even find a shopping center nearby, and it's full of restaurants, pubs and bars where you can enjoy italian food and drinkd.

I will book again next time with ItalyHome XP, the team was kind and every answer for my question was so instant. Thanks!

Nice size and convenient location with rental car

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was a nice size, the beds were comfortable, it was clean, and it was in a good location. We had a rental car, and we never had a problem finding a parking spot directly in front of the apartment. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to walk up stairs with your luggage bags. We never did walk to the beach, it was a good distance away. We arrived past 9PM, and we were charged a late check in fee. We were looking forward to taking a hot bath or shower after our long day of travel, however the water was ice cold. We read later in the "house instructions and rule book" that hot water is limited in the area. We also had to read the house instructions to figure out how to turn the stove on, which is a gas valve behind the appliance. The apartment comes with a washer but no dryer, we found clothes pins on the patio to hang and dry. We heard the train go by every now and then, but did not bother us. We enjoyed day trips up the coast. It was an overall pleasant trip. I would stay again, especially now that I am educated on how to use the home.

The BEST Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this lovely home

The apartment was very neat and cosy. (very important not noisy at all)

This is a perfect location- so close to the beach- especially with two teenage daughters .

The welcome was splendid and our hosts were very accommodating.

We enjoyed the available list with tips for food and recreation. We had a wonderful diner in one of the local restaurants.

We definitely recommend the place and hope to visit again.

Thank you!

Home from home fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

It’s the perfect location to get away from it all and experience local italian life - yet with good access to all the main sightseeing opportunities. The apartment matches the listing description and is clean and comfortable with all modern amenities and a lovely view across the rooftops from its high position. The local food is just delicious, with fresh vegetables, inexpensive good wine and excellent traditional italian dishes at nearby restaurants. Owners couldn't be more helpful and made it easy to make arrangements for transfer to and from the airport, and with family nearby we felt home from home!

One of our favourite days out was on the Enogastronomic Tour in a village not far from the villa. It was an interesting and entertaining experience touring the olive and lemon groves, tasting gorgeous olive oil, fresh lemons (yes - sweet enough to eat!) freshly made mozzarella, and home-made wine! We also made it down to the local marina at the foot of the hill (a very long walk but worth it - and there is a bus to bring you back up if you don’t fancy the long walk!) where restaurants can be found jutting out into the sea serving all kinds of delightful food and traditional home-made italian ice cream. If you like a holiday with a local feel, freshly grown produce, beautiful views, plenty to explore, and the sea - and far away from the madding crowd - this is the perfect holiday for you!
