“Italian hospitality and comfort in a unique little home across the Arno.”

My feedback is nothing but positive -- a 5 star review. First, you made it so easy transitioning to Italy from the US with detailed telephone instructions. I called Maurizio when we arrived and he and his daughter met us at the house. The cab ride was also easy, thanks to your clear directions, printed out in Italian. The home itself was charming, everything the other reviewers described. We had a lovely welcome basket of baked goodies waiting for us. The house was very comfortable and the decor charming. It was fun learning how to make Italian coffee on the Bialetti. I even bought one to take home!

The Oltrano neighborhood was ideal. We could walk everywhere and see all of the museums, etc., but stayed on our side of the bridge for dinner. The restaurants in the Oltranno neighborhood were not full of tourists, and had better prices and better food. Casalinga was our favorite. Our favorite piazza in the City is Piazza Santo Spirito, a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment. We loved having wine at sunset up at the PIazza Michelangelo and strolling through the Boboli Gardens, right in our neighborhood. We had friends staying on the other side of the bridge and they came most nights to “our side" to get away from the crowds. I did not see their rentals, but they said ours was extremely large, quiet, and well-appointed compared to the places they were staying.

As you know, we had a little mishap on the last day in Florence, locking our key, and my phone with Maurizio’ contact information in the house. It was a holiday in Italy and a Sunday afternoon in the US. Nevertheless, we borrowed a very friendly neighbor’s computer and emailed Italy Perfect. We were able to get your number, called you, and you immediately responded. You got us in touch with Maurizio who drove an hour out of his way, on his holiday, to bring us the key! Meanwhile, some renters on our street, obviously not booked through Italy Perfect, had just flown in from the US. They were sitting on the curb with their suitcases, trying to contact the owners of their apartments. Needless to say, we were so grateful to have booked through Italy Perfect. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, Lisa and Maurizio. I will recommend the Casetta Bonsi to all of my friends.

“Living like real Florentines in Casetta Bonsi”

Just wanted you to know how much we loved staying in the Casetta Bonsi. We thought the house was adorable and loved its location in a real neighborhood. The living room was attractive and cozy, and the kitchen was well equipped, except that there could be a few more wine glasses. We didn’t cook in the house, and only used the stove to boil water for tea, but there were plenty of pots and pans and enough workspace had we decided to cook meals there. The dishwasher worked well the one time we used it.

During a hot spell in Florence, the house remained cool and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was modern and well lit, and there was plenty of hot water in the shower.

The little terrace was a wonderful place to sit and read and enjoy the view of the Palazzo Vecchio tower.

Our only noise issue was the sound of motorcycles parked near the front door starting up in the morning, but we adjusted once we were over our jet lag.

Maurizio could not have been a more gracious and accommodating host. We very much appreciated the gift of wine, cookies and fruit that were waiting for us in the house, along with all the information on visiting Florence. The one problem we had was finding a puddle of water by the washing machine one morning. We contacted Maurizio, and he had the situation (new washer had not been connected properly) corrected within 48 hours. We used the washer the next day, and there were no more leaks.

Maurizio’s suggestions for restaurants were wonderful. We tried most of them, and especially loved Cinghiale Bianco, where we enjoyed two great dinners. We had breakfast every morning at the Open View Bar, down the hill from the house, and within a few days we were recognized as regulars.

Most of all, it was a treat leaving the tourist hordes behind and coming back up the hill every day to our own little house. We look forward to a return visit in the future. We were also very impressed with Italy Perfect and plan to use you again for our next trip to Italy.

Thanks so much for providing such a great service.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Florence. It's location is quiet and yet close to the centre. You are within easy walking distance of all the main tourist destinations. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and attractive. The owners could not be more accommodating and friendly - I would recommend this to anyone
