Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your holiday home in Florence. We were amazed at the size of the apartment, the high quality kitchen that was fully equipped, wonderfully comfortable beds, plenty of closet space, most incredible views of the Arno river and city of Florence, close proximity to all of Florence, I just can't say enough. We just couldn't believe our luck at finding such a large apartment so adequately and comfortably furnished, so close to everything. One of our biggest regrets was not realizing what a great neighborhood was just around the corner until two days before we left . Air conditioning if it is really hot, elevator if you have knee problems, all the things that are so attractive to spoiled travelers! we hope we will be able to return someday soon.

Thank you for all of your help while we were in Florence and for being so good to do business with.

Sincerely,

David and Suzi

Top flat! Top location!

  • 5 of 5

Todo fue perfecto en nuestra estancia en este precioso apartamento. Coincido con los comentarios que dicenque las imágenes no le hacen justicia. Amplio, luminoso, cómodo. Y hasta fresco en verano. Las vistas sobre el río Arno son preciosas, especialmente de noche. A unos pasos del Ponte Vecchio y con buenos servicios cerca.

Personal de recepción muy atento y disponible para cualquierduda.

Fantástico.

Fantastic base for exploring Florence

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two couples) had the pleasure of staying in this lovely apartment. We were in Florence to explore and celebrate some significant birthdays and a wedding anniversary. The pictures don’t do it justice; the east-facing living area is comfortable with a fantastic view of the Arno, the Uffizi and Galileo museums. The kitchen was complete with a gourmet-style gas range, large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, as well as a small balcony. The bedrooms were large and comfortable – three have queen-sized beds and one has a king. The bathrooms were nice with good water pressure. The whole apartment was immaculately clean.

Our only quibbles were the lack of dishwashing liquid, trash bags, pot holders and sharp knives for food prep (we cook a lot). The bath towels were nice, although you need to bring your own facecloths. Note that even though there is a small elevator, the flat is not handicap-accessible. It is on the 4th floor of the building, and you have to walk up several steps to access the elevator. Unlike some European buildings, the lights in the foyer do not come on automatically when you step inside. There is a brown light switch on each floor that will turn on all the hall lights for about 10 minutes.

Massimo, our host, was very kind and responsive. He provided good instructions for accessing the apartment, and he was generous with restaurant recommendations and other advice. We happened to be staying at the apartment when a major city water main burst, and Massimo was very understanding when we decided to move to a hotel for the last two days of our stay since there was no water, and he refunded our deposit and two days’ rent.

The apartment is ideally situated near the Ponte Vecchio, and everything you need for a comfortable stay is in the immediate vicinity, including a grocery store (Sapori & Dintorni Conad), a bank with two ATMs (Cariparma), a most excellent wine shop/wine bar (Signorvino) and many restaurants, bakeries and gelato shops. From the apartment you can easily walk to all the major sites in the city, as well as the train station.

Many thanks to the wonderful Massimo for sharing this beautiful apartment with us, and we would highly recommend it to other travelers.

Owner's Response: I thank you for all the compliments you said. I thank you for the suggestions you gave me stating that I give to rent my house ( apartment) and can not give additional services such as an hotel or B/B. Usually in my house there are potholders as trash bags and soap dishes for the first use: i remember that i showed you the soap for dish washer, for washing machine, the softner, the soap for the hands; I will verify the knife sharpening although I remember that in the house there is also a new ceramic knife for preparations. Thank you very much again

Great Apartment - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is even better than photos. Perfect location:2-minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and has an amazing river view; less than 5-minute walk from a great supermarket; and next to several good restaurants (Golden View and Signorvino are both by its doorsteps). Massimo was very polite and attentions. My family and I would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely amazing apartment!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is amazing! It is clean, spacious, well equipped with stunning views. The location of this apartment was unbelievable! We were centrally located for everything we wanted to do. It was also very convenient to be able to stop back at the apartment with purchases or to use the WC. We had 8 people in the apartment and were truly blown away when we walked through the doors! We absolutely loved it and felt lucky to have found it at Home Away. Massimo was extremely friendly and helpful with all of our arrangements and we would highly recommend this to anyone traveling with a large party. We definitely will stay here again and are already planning our next trip to Florence! Beautiful!

Lovely Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even better than seen in the photos. It is large, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and very well equipped. The location is absolutely perfect, a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio but still away from the hordes of tourist crowds. The views from the living room are amazing with fabulous reflections along the river, especially at sunset. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip to Florence!

Appartment for a Vacation of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our two daughters, son-in-law and two grandsons for a two week stay in Florence to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our stay in this apartment was perfect. There was more than adequate sleeping space, the kitchen was well equipped and the living room and dining room were perfect for a group our size. The pictures provided on the web site are very accurate and the views from the windows overlooking the Arno are breathtaking. The owner, Massimo, was very helpful and provided us with great information on how to get to nearby grocery and dining options. The location, very near the Ponte Veccio, provided us with easy access to the center of Florence, and there were many great sites and options for shopping and site seeing within several blocks of the apartment. We were also within walking distance to the train and bus stations for day trips to Venice, Rome, Pisa and Sienna. It got very hot the last week of our stay and the air conditioning was great after a long day of site seeing. I don't think we could have found a better place to stay in Florence.
