One of our travel partners received a recommendation on these accommodations from a friend who had stayed here. She booked for the 4 of us as well and we found it to be PERFECT in every way. The owner was so kind and pleasant, meeting us when we arrived and giving us all the information we could need to feel comfortable in the apartment and in the area. She has a wonderful binder of information available for guests which helped us navigate. The apartment, perfect for two couples or a family, was meticulously clean and much more spacious than a hotel. The beds were comfortable and all amenities were provided down to shampoo in the beautiful bathroom. The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking or just making tea/coffee and the living room has dining and lounging furniture with a TV and filled bookshelf to peruse. The location is just right. We walked everywhere but it is a block to a taxi stand and bus route. We felt safe and secure in a quiet neighborhood with breakfast options right out the front door.

Our friend handled the booking with Lavinia but relayed that the communication was excellent and thorough. We stayed in the two bedroom/one bath unit but they also have a one bedroom/one bath unit which was equally beautiful.

This apartment is a great value and I highly recommend it. We will stay again on our next trip.

The apartment was fantastic. Lavinia was helpful and professional throughout the process. The apartment was clean and spacious for four adults and one child. The information book was the best I have ever seen. Location is great as we saw all the main sites without the need for transportation.

We stayed in this apartment as a family with 3 kids 10, 8 and 6yr old. It was fantastic. The location is amazing which meant we could pop back to the apartment during the day to take a break, chill out for a bit, have lunch etc. The location also meant we didn't take transport once and were able to walk Rome.

The apartment was really clean with loads of linen and towels. There were provisions in the kitchen to get set up and a shop very close for anything extra. The hosts were so friendly and helpful - we took many of their recommendations on places to see - they couldn't have been more helpful.

Really great holiday - one we'll remember for a long time. Thx

So why more than five stars, let me count them for you:

First star: The apartment is in an excellent location, easy walk to Vatican, Pantheon, Spanish steps, Tervi fountain, to name a few

Second star: The neighborhood is quite, safe, and has a variety of restaurants in a few minutes walk as well as three different grocery stores.

Third star: The apartment itself. Spotless, well stocked. Ours had a full kitchen, a wash machine, refrig, all the plates, utensils, staple items (salt, paper, coffee, oil), breakfast items, etc.

Forth star: The size, very large, and large by US standards, huge by European standards

Fifth star: The booking process and pre-arrival information. The website was supper easy to use, the pictures were the actual apartments, and once booked it provided great documentation and Lavinia and or Max provide an additional email confirmation

Another five stars: Lavinia and Max are worth way more than another five stars. First they emailed me in advance with detailed information from help with a private transfer from the airport to step by step instructions for the bus. When we arrived, Lavinia met us, welcomed us, and spent over an hour with us and a map talking about everything and anything we wanted to know. She probably saved us a day of walking around trying to find things.

Lavinia has also created a book within the apartment with detailed information and corresponding pictures for things like the hop on hop off buses, the Vatican, getting around, etc, etc.

And, if that was not enough, I asked a weird question, did they know of any tailors if I wanted to get a suit made, they didn't, but within an hour, had two suggestions.

We will never stay anywhere else, we felt like we were part of their family.

Had a great stay in Rome. Max was a great host. He arranged transportation from the airport for us, then met us at the flat, and spent an hour with us explaining great restaurants, landmarks, grocery store , pharmacy and even hospital, and how to get there. He provided breakfast for us, and showed us how to use everything. Comfortable beds, nice artwork, and most importantly good air conditioning. Location can't be beat, we walked to everything! Would definitely stay at Max and Lavinia 's next time in Rome.
