My second experience with tripadvisor's vacation rentals and it was a perfect stay!! The pictures do not do the place justice, as we felt right at home. Starting from the great communication from Lucia, all the way to the house having all the necessary amenities (and some extra goodies too). Lucia helped us arrange our airport pickup and drop off. We got in very late and Lucia even helped us find an open restaurant (I San Pietrini – the food and service was excellent). The location is great as it a couple blocks away from a supermarket and restaurants. We are a family of five and we fit very comfortably.
Traveling overseas can be really stressful at times especially when your trying to find the perfect place to stay and the wrong place can truly break your vacation. Well look no further, I cannot say enough great things about our host, Lucia. She arranged the taxi for us to and from the airport, she met us at the apartment, which was clean, immaculate and well appointed, with breakfast items waiting for us. And after such a long flight it was much appreciated. The historical building the apartment was in is an absolute gem, with a charming old school wooden elevator, which the kids absolutely loved, to the beautiful solid wood front door with large skeleton keys for door latch. Details everywhere you look which is what one expects anywhere you look in Rome. Only 2 blocks from Vatican city. Bus stop, taxis and train station only block away. Grocery store, restaurants, souvenir shops all within 10 min walk. Location is perfect and quiet. But I cannot overstate how lucky we are to have Lucia as a host. She was very willing to do what it takes to make your stay memorable and to that end we had a great and pleasurable stay in Rome. Will definitely look forward to coming back again soon. From a grateful family, the DeStefano's.
5 Minute walk to St Peter's with many restaurants nearby. 100 metres to train station with bus stop and taxi rank. Immaculately presented, comforable and very well furnished apartment with every amenity, Lucia the owner was extremely friendly and helpful to the point of arranging private transfer from the airport. It will be our first choice for our next stay in Rome. Thank you Lucia.
Nicely appointed with furnishings, newer kitchen and so close to a grocery store! Very happy with our stay, we are a family of 6, 4 children 15-20. Lucia was happy to help us with luggage storage after check out and arranging a taxi to and from the airport where we left our rental car. Would stay again!
As a side note, I would recommend the bike tour from the Red Bicycle. What a way to see all the sights of Rome, and the kids were happy to be moving at a quicker pace.
The best thing about this apartment tis the owner, Lucia Cacioli. Lucia is quite simply the "gold standard" when it comes to holiday rental apartment owners/managers. Lucia was unfailingly helpful, responsive and professional in all my dealings with her. Nothing was too much trouble for Lucia. This is the holiday rental apartment owner/manager that every vacationer hopes to find but so rarely does. Lucia's apartment is ideal for a single traveller or a couple looking for a stylish Rome rental near the Vatican. This is definitely not your typical poorly furnished and basic vacation rental. Best of all, you get to deal with Lucia!!
