Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We checked into our apartment without any problems. The owner was easy to keep in contact with via phone calls and text messages as we arrived in Florence. The apartment was very clean and tidy. Plenty of supplies and plenty of room for our family of four. What a beautiful view from the front windows of the Arno River and right next to the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Our apartment owner was extremely helpful with guidance on where to eat, shop and site see. There was plenty of supplies also in the kitchen. We definitely recommend this historic apartment in Florence. Enjoy it as much as we did. We hope to be back.....minus our kids ;)

Location, location, location; View, view, view.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location or view - directly on the Arno with views of the Ponte Vecchio and hills on opposite side of river. Go out front door and bridge is 1 minute to right and Uffizi 1 minute to left. Galileo museum is 2 minutes and Duomo is 10 minutes away. Excellent supermarket (Conads) is just over bridge to left, less than 5 minutes away. At least 3 gelaterias within a few minutes. We had 2 excellent dinners at Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco - 1st street on right over the bridge. Try the pappardelle with boar sauce or the gnocchi with shrimp.

Other observations and suggestions: (1) Check out the central market for dozens of food stalls; approx. 15 minute walk from apartment; just north of Duomo; great for picnic items but probably too far to haul a major shopping trip; (2) Definitely take the half hour walk across the river using next bridge to left and up the hill to Piazzacelle Michaelangelo and one of the oldest churches in Florence. Great views of the city; (3) The apartment is larger than a hotel room but not huge; ideal for 2 people but probably tight for four. Many stairs to 5th floor but building has a very small but reliable elevator. Apartment overlooks street with much vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Expect street noise with windows open but near silence with windows closed; (4) Train station is an easy 15 minute walk without luggage but narrow streets and cobblestone sidewalks may make hauling luggage more of a chore than all but youngest and fittest travelers want. No problem because there is a taxi stand 1 minute to right from apartment; 10 euros fare to station; (5) Guide books recommend reservations for Ufizzi but it is so close to apartment that we walked over just before opening at 8am and got right in; (6) Property manager Marusca was available and immediately responsive. When we encountered a minor problem with accordian style shower door coming off track, we called Marusca and a maintenance worker appeared within minutes. Also, because the apartment was vacant the day before our arrival, Marusca graciously accomodated our request for an early check in.

We have traveled throughout the world ( Spain, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, the Caribbean) but this is the first time we used VRBO / Homeaway. In addition to Florence we stayed with VRBO in Massa Lubrense (near Sorrento) and Lucca. All 3 accommodations met or exceeded our expectations. Give it a try.

Best view , location with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Marcusa is a lovely , responsive , flexible and informative host. The apartment view up and down the Arno is spectacular. Close to everything but high up enough (with elevator) to feel like a respite from crowds. Well equipped, pleasingly decorated, spacious for us two. Loved having a clothes washer. I would be very happy to stay here again.

Wonderful view, really nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful view of the Ponte Vecchio, and walking distance to all of the major sites. A nice escape from the bustling and busy streets of Florence. The apartment was spacious and decorated tastefully, with a nice kitchen and table/lounge area, bathroom, and bedroom. Felt relaxed and comfortable staying here. Marusca was so nice and easy to communicate with. She gave us great recommendations for food and drink in the area which was so helpful! 5 stars from me!

The apartment worked out well. Great location, comfortable bed, air conditioning ( I was surprised to need it in Oct). Etc. Minor problems with lights and no internet access lowered my rating.
