Su Hal McMillan
Ciao, mi chiamo Hal e sono californiano. Abito a Roma da quasi 20 anni. Sono cresciuto nel sud della California e sono andato all'University of Southern California. Quando ero studente ho fatto un semestre in Europa e mi sono innamorato della bellezza di Roma, della sua storia, della cultura di questo paese. Da quando sono studente ho viaggiato tanto in tutto il mondo, mi piace incontrare gente e scoprire nuove culture.
Perché hai deciso di affittare questa proprietà?
Ho scelto questa proprietà perchè è vicina al centro storico senza averne i problemi e la confusione . Il quartiere è caratterizzato da ville di famiglie aristocratiche dell'inizio del 1900, accanto al parco di villa Borghese e dello Zoo. A soli 25 minuti a piedi attraverso il parco e siete a Piazza di Spagna!
Che cosa rende questa casa unica?
L'elemento positivo di questo appartamento èl'ingresso indipendente in giardino privato con posto macchina, la tranquillità e il fatto che abito nel palazzo e sono avostra disposizione a qualsiasi ora.

Sorry to say, no eating/drinking on any of the furniture or bed. Please use the dining room table. I'm sooo tired of always washing the slip covers!

Hal was very gracious. Following the introduction to the property he gave a a walking tour of the neighborhood pointing out good restaurants within walking distance of the VRBO. The apartment is in an excellent location near embassies and close to the Borghese Gallery and gardens. Only thing left to say is perfect place, perfect location and perfect host! We highly recommend this rental and will likely return in the future.
Second time staying at The Palm House in Rome. We love the quite, peaceful location which is only a short bus/taxi ride from city center. The owner/host Hal is wonderful. Highly recommend this property!
Hello 2nd timer. I just love guests who return and return to the Palm House. It means I'm doing something right! LOL Have a wonderful winter and will see you again next year. Sincerely, Hal
Perfect in every way!
Are just home from a two week stay in Italy. During the first 6 days we stayed in this amazing apartment. The apartment itself is only exceeded by our wonderful host and owner Hal.
First the apartment...it is in a beautiful building and neighborhood just steps from the Borghese park and one of the embassies. The apartment is spacious and has plenty of storage space. My 6' 3" tall husband really appreciated the king size bed and the height of the shower in the bath. Other favorite features were the washer so that we could do laundry which was easy to dry while we were out for the day using two large drying racks and hangers. The star of the apartment for me was the espresso machine and Hal even purchased decaff pods for me in advance of our arrival. We were on the go most of our time in Rome but wish we had had time to enjoy the bikes and the outdoor seating area which is very private and roomy. The apartment is steps from the taxi stand, bus stop and tram stops for both the Collisium and Vatican but we chose to walk most of the time because of our athletic history. But the tram was a great option for our early morning tour. There is a great coffee and dessert bar just minutes from the apartment and also some good options for dinner including fine dining and more casual options, all 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Two grocery stores are also close by.
Now for Hal, the owner. Unfortunately, my luggage was missing in Paris and my bag arrived two days late. Hal was there to save the day by facilitating multiple follow up calls with the airline. Although I do speak some Italian, my skills were not adequate for the situation. Hal was happy to intervene and even postponed his usual evening plans to wait for my luggage to arrive so that we could continue with our evening plans. Hal provided all of the necessary information about the neighborhood amenities through a lengthy tour upon our arrival which was supported by maps and hard copy information at the apartment. Hal has the most wonderful disposition and a delightful sense of humor. We already miss him and will definitely stay with him again unless my review keeps him so booked we are not able to secure the apartment again! This was our second trip to Rome and we stayed in this area once before but in a hotel. The stay at the apartment was much more enjoyable and really felt like Home Away! Thank you for everything Hal. Our wish was truly your command!
Hello and what a review! Thanks for putting so much time and effort into writing it. This must be the longest glowing review in the history of HomeAway ! LOL. I really enjoyed your company and am glad that you loved the Palm House. I reallyhope to see you again here in Rome or in the States next year.
Awesome place to stay
Apartment was a great place to stay. We loved the private courtyard and spent a lot of time there after hours of sightseeing.
Hal was wonderful. Although washing machine was broken, Hal made it right by having his housekeeper take care of it at no extra charge.
I also had a medical emergency on a day trip to Positano and he made our life so much easier by letting us stay an extra night to make early arrangements home. Hal is our hero. Thank you. We look forward to our stay again in two years.
Hello, I'm glad to hear that your arm is healing well after your fall in Positano. The least I could do was to give you an extra free night to sort out the logistical problems on returning back home unexpectically. I'll see you in two years time and thanks for wanting to come back to The Palm House. Sincerely, Hal
Lovely spot to return to after busy days touring the sites.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely apartment near Villa Borghese. After jostling with crowds all day in search of the classic tourist sites, it was relaxing to get back to this elegant neighborhood and sample the local restaurants and take evening strolls in the quiet neighborhood. Hal is the ultimate host, greeting us at the property and taking the time to highlight some of his favorite restaurants, cafes, and tavernas.
Next time we go to Italy, we'll start our vacation in Rome and then head down to the Amalfi Coast to experience the Italian coast.
Thank you Hal for taking such good care of us.

Hello, I had a great time hosting the two of you and I'm happy that you enjoyed the apartment and all the restaurants nearby.
Home in Rome
Hal made us feel right at home. We felt so comfortable navigating the neighborhood after our tour. We are walkers and walked to most sights. With Hal’s initial help we took tram to Vatican. If I visit again I would stay here. You will not be disappointed. Also the bed was very comfortable. Hal also taught us how to work washing machine and appliances. This is a quite neighborhood and great pLace to relax after a busy day.
I'm glad you enjoyed the walking tour of my neighborhood. It's an authentic upper class Italian area with no tourists. Full of restaurants, caffe shops and great turn of the century architecture.
