Beautiful, convenient and friendly

  • 5 of 5

The Terrace. This is a great spot! My brother and I stayed here during the Palio - what an experience! The location is ideal – close enough to walk to the old walled city (5-10 min, depending on your speed up/down the hill) or you can take the little bus, which stops just down the hill.

The Terrace is large and pretty – bright, comfortable and with a very well equipped kitchen with everything we needed for coffee, meals and snacks. We visited in mid-August and were concerned about the heat – no problem! The house overall stayed cool and comfortable – the largest bedroom gets warm as it gets direct sun; it has a very effective wall-mounted air-conditioner that we would use for just a few hours per day. The outside terrace is amazing – large, private, with a covered area with a large outdoors table – it’s beautiful with old stone, wisteria and gorgeous views.

Our VRBO host, Rhoda, is a gracious and attentive person – quick to offer help, whether it be a ride to the bus or some tomatoes from her garden. Rhoda and her husband Charles are helpful with small things and large; from how to operate the washer to making recommendations/reservations at local (terrific) eateries.

For a beautiful home, convenient location and friendly, helpful hosts – this is a 5-star stay!

The Garden Flat is Great

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Flat for 2 weeks in November. The location is just a 10 minute walk to the San Marco gate to Siena. It served as a perfect base for our exploration of Toscana. All of the hill towns are within an hour and a half drive. This made for easy day trips. The Garden Flat is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom worked well for us. It is quiet and secure and we had no problem parking our rental car. Rhoda, our hostess is a delight! Very accommodating with lots of great information. Extremely helpful with making dinner reservations and suggesting activities and sights to see. Rhoda is an expat Brit with a wonderful sense of humor. We left feeling as though we had made a very good friend. I highly recommend Rhoda and the Garden Flat

Fabulous apartment 5 minutes from gate to old Siena

  • 5 of 5

We needed a respite on our last few days in Italy and Rhoda made that possible. The flat easily could work for 6 people but it was perfect for two couples. A great sitting room, good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms worked great. Very close (walking distance) to the gates and all the beauty of Siena. The best part was Rhoda arriving with a bottle of wine ready to tell us all about Siena. She also organized a fabulous day trip with a friend/chef to escort us around the countryside, tasting wine and cheese. Weather wasn't hot enough in October to use the outside space but would be beautiful in the heat of the summer or spring with the wisteria in bloom. All in all Rhoda and her husband made this stop a highlight of out Italy trip.

Very nice and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults staying at this nice apartment.

Convenient to Siena (20 min walk) and also to grocery. Rhoda was very helpful in arranging restaurant reservations and other suggestions. Had a nice sitting area just outside. Apartment was clean and well stocked, we were able to cook dinner there one night.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review I would like to point out that the 20 min walk is to the campo in the middle of town not to Siena the walk into Siena old town is only five mins rhoda

Se ina made easy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Garden Flat. The accommodations and Rhoda made our stay in Siena wonderful. The flat is just a short walk downhill from the city gate. The walk uphill feels significantly longer. We are looking forward to a return trip as soon as possible.
