Guestbook comments from the owner
Marina's apartment was absolutely wonderful. A perfect mix of luxury and home comforts. The location near Santa Croce is fantastic. You are within a 10-15 minute walk of just about everywhere, but you are on a street away from crowds and tourists. As someone who is very hygiene conscious, i was very pleased with the cleanliness of the apartment when I arrived and found that the luxuries of the apartment (air conditioning, wifi, and the spectacular view) were all top notch. The bed, like all he furniture, was very comfortable, clean, and inviting. The third floor walk-up can be tough if you have heavy luggage, so just be prepared. The view of Sanata Maria Del Fiore completely makes it worth it though. In the vicinity of the apartment you have a supermarket, a Vodafone store, several pizzerias, great bars, and a lovely beauty salon just doors away. Communicating with Marina was very easy and pleasant. She is kind and very conscientious about responding to e-mails quickly and as helpfully as possible. I will definitely be staying at this apartment the next time I am in Florence. The only down-side to the apartment is that you won't want to leave.

Me and my husband live in the beautiful country between Florence and Siena with our Great Dane and a cat . Our two children 'left the nest': the girl works and lives in Florence, the boy studies and works near London. Rent the apt. gives us the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and find new friends.

Marina purchased this apartment in 2012

We bought this little apt. in 2011 and we renewed it at all in 2012. We belive that now it is cosy just like a nest. We love to share it with tourists who like to visit Florence and to find peace and calm after a day of sightseen. The district is amazing, full of life, with the near Market of S.Ambrogio and many restaurants and bars. It is out from the tourists crowd, but in a walking distance from the main Monuments. It is inside the restricted area for traffic, but there are paying parking nearby.

We had many guests many of them came back, many became friends. All of them feel at home, because the apt. is cosy, comfortable, well equipped, bright and quiet. All of them love the near Market of S.Ambrogio, because they can find all kind of goods and sellers are very friendly.

COZY & QUIET!

Cozy & Quiet!
  • 5 of 5
I loved this apartment - it was in a good location near restaurants and supermarket. Marina was available via phone or text and responded promptly to my questions. The apartment was equipped with pretty much anything one may need to get started. Marina left a bottle of wine for me to enjoy during my stay. As a female traveling alone I felt very safe in the apartment since the door has an amazing locking system and the building is only accessed with a key separate key to the front door. I would definitely return to this apartment whenever I return to Florence.

ROMANTIC APARTMENT WITH ROOFTOP VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location in Florence, away from the tourist crowds, but convenient to the major sites in Florence. Apartment is exactly as pictured, nice 2-story space with lovely rooftop views. Many reasonable restaurants near by. We especially liked Natolino on Borgo Albizi, went there twice for dinner. The apartment had everything you need including a nice washing machine which we availed ourselves of.
My husband accidentally left his favorite hat inside when we left on our final day. Marina went far above and beyond to get it back to us. She sent it on to our next stop in Venice, but I had given her the wrong address, so she got it back again! It finally arrived back in the US just today. She certainly did her utmost to reunite us with the missing hat. we can not thank her enough.
Would definitely recommend this fantastic apt in lovely Florence.
Thanks again, Marina!

GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two weeks here over Christmas and New Year's – everything was fabulous: Marina (charming and helpful), the apartment (beautiful and comfortable), Florence (endlessly fascinating). Definitely recommended.

A TRUE GEM.

  • 5 of 5
Marina's apartment is exactly as pictured and described. It is lovely, well designed, and very clean and comfortable. We are a 60ish couple who spent a week there in late November 2013 and loved coming home to our perfect little nest after sightseeing and walking all day around fascinating Firenze.
We slept soundly in the king size bed and thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the upstairs living room, with it's unique, extremely comfortable, L shaped sofa. The views from the two large windows were magical at night, with the spire and belltower of Santa Croce and top of the Duomo lit up. The small bathroom is very well designed with a great shower. The Wifi worked great and the kitchen corner has everything you need for cooking light meals. I especially enjoyed shopping at the nearby S'Ambrogio market and preparing my delicious purchases. There is also a good grocery store 1 1/2 blocks away.
Marina has put a great deal of thought into designing this apartment, including the lighting, heat and decor. She is also very responsive and helpful. She met us upon arrival, answered all our questions including the ones we emailed to her later, gifted us with a very good bottle of local wine, made reservations for us at the Uffizi and for our cab ride to the train station at the end of our visit.
Because it's on the top floor and has a set of stairs between the two floors of the apartment, it is not for the mobility impaired, but I recommend it for everyone else. Did I mention that the neighborhood is great? Probably the best neighborhood to stay as its away from the hotel/tourist areas but still close to all the attractions and with plenty of restaurants and shops.

QUAINT AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
I loved this apartment. It was very quaint and decorated in a very homey way. Plus upon arrival there was a pleasant surprise of wine! I loved the way the apartment was broken up into two levels and the views from the sitting area/kitchen.

Although the apartment is small it is very cozy and very comfortable. The service provided was excellent and I would highly recommend this place to any couple who wants to be out of the hustle and bustle.

There are some very good places to eat in every direction from the apartment and our favorite was a little bakery about a block and a half away. Delish! Thanks for a fantastic stay!

**The only down fall would be if you are a older couple who doesn't do stairs very well it is on the top floor or for larger individuals the showe was small.

EVEN LOVELIER THAN THE PHOTOS!

  • 5 of 5
This was a really lovely apartment, which looked even nicer and larger than the photos. Everything was provided such as bed linen, towels, toilet paper, shower gel, washing up liquid, adapter plugs, books, maps of Florence, condiments and tea and coffee, even a bottle of wine and a bottle of chilled water to welcome us! The location was fantastic, right next to the city centre, but quiet at night, with pretty views from all windows. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. Marina, the owner, was very helpful via e-mail before our stay and met us at the apartment on the day we arrived, then let us check out late and nobody else needed the flat on the day we were leaving - we just left the keys on the table and shut the door - really convenient!
