LIVE ROME LIKE A ROMAN.TRASTEVERE'S MOST DELIGHTFUL APARTMENT

Trastevere area Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

The apartment has a large bedroom (U.S. double-size bed, 140cm) and PLENTY of closet space, a spacious, eat-in kitchen, and a living room that looks out on the piazza. The bathroom, though narrow, is quite modern and pretty; it has a shower, not a tub. There are ceiling fans in all three rooms and in the summer there is air conditioning as well. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME BEFORE CHECKING FOR AVAILABILITY EITHER ON THE HOMEAWAY CALENDAR (SEE BELOW)OR MY SITE:

Roughly 60 square meters or 700 square feet, the three-room apartment is on the second floor, European-style, which means there are two flights of stairs. There is no elevator. It has lovely, wood, beamed ceilings in all three rooms and is very cozy and warmly furnished. It differs from most of the others on the market because of its real, lived-in charcter and, in fact, I lived here for over 20 years before moving down the block seven years ago.

Along with its attractive furnishings, new, firm mattress, and extremely well-appointed kitchen, there are several hundred books in English, a broad selection of guidebooks and maps, and a new TV with Sky Italia satellite that gives you access to dozens of Italian and foreign channels. There is also a VCR (with a small collection of films) and a CD-cassette player with radio. There is no washing machine, but there is a coin-operated laundromat a few blocks away. Unlike most apartments, in this one, a LAPTOP with XP and a DSL connection is available at NO CHARGE for getting on the internet, reading your web mail and surfing. a week for unlimited access. There is wireless if you are bringing your own device. On arrival, you will find juice, bottled water, and a bottle of wine waiting for you. Generally, basic household supplies are included e as well as food basics such as olive oil, coffee, salt and sugar.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE APARTMENT IS MEANT FOR ONE PERSON OR FOR TWO PEOPLE WHO SHARE A BED. In some circumstances, the living room couch can be used by an additional person for sleeping, but there is an extra charge for this. MINIMUM RENTAL PERIOD IN APRIL,MAY, JUNE, SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER IS ONE WEEK, UNLESS THERE IS A SHORTER GAP BETWEEN TWO LONGER RENTALS.IN OTHER PERIODS IT IS FIVE NIGHTS.

The bedroom is extremely quiet. The entire apartment is quiet during the day and the piazza below is delightful.

In the evenings the living room side is less quiet because the café downstairs is highly popular. In some periods, depending on the vigilance or lack thereof of the Rome city police, street musicians and peddlers also make an appearance. And generally, except in the coldest part of the winter, there are lots of people walking about and enjoying the scene since, as you probably know, Trastevere is a sort of Roman Greenwich Village or Marais and is consequently quite lively.

During the day the cafe is a nice place for a light lunch and, of course, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere is great for coffee in the morning, and for people watching, one of Italy's oldest and favorite spectator sports.

TRASTEVERE TREASURE!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment exceeded our expectations in every category. The location, the comfort, the spaciousness, the ambience! The owner has created a very special retreat, right on an exciting piazza but so comfortable you hardly want to leave. When you do venture forth, you will easily walk to great restaurants, interesting sights, good local shops & transportation if needed. The owner was easy to deal with, prompt in all transactions & most informative. She arranged for the excellent driver
Roberto to meet us at the airport & let us into the apartment. We definitely want to stay at this Trastevere Treasure again!

WE LIVED LIKE A LOCAL!

  • 5 of 5
There is always a degree of anxiety renting a place to stay that is not 'normal' accommodation such as a hotel. After an exchange of emails with the owner we decided to rent the apartment so we could experience an authentic Rome lifestyle for a few days. Sari (the owner) recommended her preferred limo driver pick us up from the airport and that was the first of many pleasant surprises. We were driven to the apartment by a driver that not only knew exactly where to go but also helped us with our baggage and as we found out later was cheaper than a taxi! We were met by the person who services the apartment and shown where everything is (ask to see the wall safe...it would be impossible to find it without knowing exactly where it is). The apartment has a very welcoming feel and is very comfortable. The piazza where the apartment is located is surrounded by many eateries. The local supermarket is a short walk away and public transport even closer. I totally recommend this wonderful apartment to people wishing to experience a different tourist adventure. As an authentic apartment it is on the 3rd floor with no lift but we enjoyed the exercise of the stairs. Thank you for letting us stay there.

A PERFECT BASE FOR EXPLORING ROME FEBRUARY 2014

  • 5 of 5
This charming, comfortable one bedroom in Trastevere is perfect for a couple's base in Rome. My husband and I loved the beamed ceilings, the flower boxes, the new, up to date kitchen and bathroom, the quiet bedroom (all the more wonderful as the living room fronts on lively Piazza Sant' Egidio, which is alive with people till late at night). Every wonder of the historic center of Rome was a short walk or bus ride away. We loved stocking our kitchen from the local outdoor market, the local awesome cheese shop, and the local awesome bakeries and wine shops. The kitchen is new, and well equipped for meals at home. And when we ate out, great restaurants were a very short walk away--and a cozy café for morning coffee is right outside the front door. On our one rainy day, we braved the downpours in the morning but loved being able to relax in our own place in the afternoon. So much nicer than a cramped hotel room.

The owner is American and available, accessible, and knowledgeable. She recommended the excellent Roberto to pick us up from and deliver us to the airport. This was our first foray into apartment rental and she could not have made is easier. Highly recommended.

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a week in Rome staying in this lovely apartment. We were delighted with the apartment and would recommend it wholeheartedly. Already planning our return trip.
The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed - one of the best VRBOs we have stayed in. It is on the first floor, overlooking a small piazza. The location in Trastevere is perfect – removed from the chaos of central Rome, but close enough for easy walking access. Lots of cafes and restaurants, and the area comes alive at night with buskers and people dining out.
The owner was extremely helpful and friendly – from initial booking, through meeting us on arrival, responding to queries during our stay, and even helping organise airport transport on departure.

APARTMENT IN THE TRASTEVERE

  • 5 of 5
We can not say enough about this apartment. This was our first visit to Rome and we spent eight nights in the Trastevere. The owner arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and arranged for a taxi to take us to the train station at the end of our stay. When we arrived at the apartment we were greeted by the owner's housekeeper. She made sure we had a complete tour of the apartment and answered all our questions. We soon found our way to the bridges and local markets. It was so much fun to live in the old part of Rome. Great restaurants were recommended by the owner as well as sights to visit. We felt very much at home in this well equipped apartment. The rooms were spacious, there was plenty of closet space, plenty of drawer space, a wall safe, there was artwork on the walls, books on the shelves, comfortable furniture and bed, and a fully equipped kitchen. Even though some days were hot we were so glad to come home to the apartment where there were ceiling fans in the bedroom, kitchen and living room as well as air conditioning in the bedroom and kitchen. The owner used to live in this apartment so she knows the area very well and gave us much needed advise as to where to go and what things to see. We are highly recommending this apartment to any couple or single person who want to feel comfortable in a home away from home.

GREAT APARTMENT IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
Sari's apartment has all the comforts of home - a real place, lived in by real people (unlike some other rentals we have stayed in that are totally devoid of anything personal.) Books, bathrobes, coffee and juice in the fridge are examples of her thoughtfulness. She arranged transportation to and from the airport- a very good idea, helped with airline reservations and laundry, and met us for coffee at the cafe downstairs. The apt. is roomy and well furnished. Lots of hot water and good water pressure in the small bathroom. A window opens over the bustling Piazza Edigio so you can hear the murmur of the passing crowds and music, but the bedroom is very quiet. Only 1 out of 7 nights were we disturbed by a particularly loud group of tourists. The kitchen is modernized with a working stove, fridge and dishes equipped to cook full meals with food purchased at several local food shops.

The Trastevere neighborhood is amazing - streams of people, tourists and locals, dozens of cafe's, and street performers, restaurants brimming with people even at midnight. It's a joyful scene. The quiet morning times are different but equally interesting as locals stop for a quick coffee with neighbors on their way to work.

Downsides: Two flights of steep stairs to the apt.
