Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mario's family,

A wonderful host you and your family were for us!

The apartment far exceeded our expectations and was so much better than a Hotel. Your assistance with restaurants and the bike were unbelievable to us.

Thank you for making this the bet beginning of our Italian dream vacation.

Ciao

Fabulous Modern Loft

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted with this large (800 sq. ft.) elegant, and spotless designer apartment. Heated floors, stylish bathroom with bidet and a very comfortable bed with excellent linens. The kitchen is along one wall so both of us could be cooking at the same time without bumping into each other. We spent 8 days here and enjoyed coming home to it every day. The street is very quite so you don't have to worry about all night party noise. Very thoughtful welcome gifts which included wine, strawberries, pasta, red sauce, salami, cheese, tangerines, biscotti, and more. You don't have to shop for food for the first couple of days which was very helpful. The apartment is elegant and is designed to host you. Paola, whose family owns the building, is very charming and helpful. When we wanted to make reservations or needed any information he was able to accommodate us immediately. We will return and recommend to our friends. You will enjoy this apartment.

Bella Firenze

  • 5 of 5

Usually when you are renting an apt. online , if you are lucky enough, it is what you see, is what you get.

Often this may work against you but, in my case ,what you saw online was not what you got! It was 10x better!!!!!!! The apt. from the moment I got there was so thoughtfully & professionally done. Every thing you could possibly want is at your finger tips. Paolo was the perfect hostess with food, fruit, drinks, sweets all personally chosen for me. It was better than staying in a 5* hotel. The apt. in itself is beautiful, clean, and so comfy!

I walked every where with no problem. If you had any questions or needed anything( I certainly did not!), Paolo was right there. He was very personable & Edy was so helpful with my bags etc.

My whole experience was unbelievable and then to top it off, I was invited to Paolo's parents house for drinks and canapés!!!!! Who does this ????? His parents were so charming & hospitable. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

I could go on & on but, it is suffice to say, if you are going to Florence for any length of time you have to stay in this new luxury loft.

I was there for over 3 weeks & was sorry to leave when I did!

My favorite!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Florence many times over the past decade. Never have I found accomadations so inviting and beautiful. Mario and his family were so accomadating and the apartment is absolutely beautiful, very classy and top of the line design. It's a quiet environment, so when you get back to your apartment after a long day, it's a peaceful and inviting place to retreat. There are amenities that you would find only in a high end 5 star resort. Fabulosity!

Surpasses Description!

  • 5 of 5

One of my daughters was studying in Florence this semester so my other daughter and I went to visit her during our spring break. I wanted an apartment that could sleep 3 so we could all stay together and this worked out very well although - and this is my ONLY complaint - the "foldout" bed isn't adequate for an adult. However, the couch was very comfortable for one of my daughters to sleep on. The photos very accurately depict the apartment - it is beautifully appointed. The bathroom downstairs is gorgeous with a deep bathtub - unusual for a vacation rental. Another unusual aspect was the half bathroom upstairs in the sleeping loft - since I usually get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, this was a huge convenience for me. Everything that you would need or want is provided for you. I was surprised at all the snacks and beverages waiting for us when we arrived - so thoughtful and unexpected. We LOVED the Colomba - the Easter bread - made a delicious breakfast along with espresso from the Nespresso machine. The very large bed upstairs was extremely comfortable with nice bedding - I'm pretty sure it's a King size bed - I shared it very comfortably with one of my daughters. The apartment is in a great location on a relatively quiet street - we weren't bothered by any noise during our stay. It is only a couple of blocks from the Duomo and I loved going by it everyday either coming or going it is soooo beautiful. It is also close to the bus stop although we walked almost everywhere. Paolo greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the apartment and showed us how everything worked. If we needed anything during our stay it was provided immediately! I fell in love with Firenze and hope to return again some day.

Five Star Location, Accommodation and Treatment

  • 5 of 5

This property is completely renovated with a very modern mix of old and new. Our hosts were most gracious and accommodating. Truly a five star treatment in a five star city. This apartment is ideal for a couple and we felt very much at home during our week stay.

The building has an elevator that was very useful after trekking about the city. The location was ideal being situated close to the city centre without being too close. The train station and bus terminal were close by so that day trip to Sienna was simple to do.

Our host had refreshments waiting for us on our arrival and they made us feel most welcome. My wife and I have stayed at numerous apartments in Europe and this rates at the top.

Sincerely,

Steve and Andrea

The perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three weeks traveling in Italy staying exclusively in VRBO apartments. A Suite in Florence was far and away the best apartment of the entire trip. This amazing gem is equipped with top of the line amenities in every room, it’s conveniently located but away from the crowds, and the host family is extremely friendly and helpful. Their attention to detail definitely exceeded our expectations. When we go back to Florence this is where we will stay!
