vacation rental description

The apartment, a two-flight walk-up, is located in the heart of
Trastevere at Piazza S. Egidio, just one block from Piazza Santa
Maria in Trastevere and two blocks from the Tiber. It is a three-
room apartment, roughly 700 square feet (60 square meters),with a
large bedroom (double bed) and plenty of closet space, a spacious
eat-in kitchen and a living room which looks out on the piazza. The
bathroom is modern and tiled and has a shower, not a tub. There are
ceiling fans in all three rooms and A/C is available in the four
summer months. IF POSSIBLE, SUNDAY ARRIVALS SHOULD BE AVOIDED AS SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS NEED TO BE MADE.
Fully equipped with all kitchen appliances, computer, dsl connection, wireless, and soft, comfy terrycloth robes, the apartment is designed for one person or for two people who share a bed. In special
circumstances the living room couch can be used for sleeping
arrangments for an additional person (athough this means the bed
would have to be made up each day). There is a small additional charge
for using the couch as a bed.
The apartment is on the second floor (European-style) of this 17th
century building
. There is no elevator. The apartment has lovely wood, beamed ceilings in all three rooms and, occupied until recently by its
owner, is very cozy and warmly furnished. The kitchen is wood and
granite and there are two ovens, a  brand-new six-burner gas range, a refrigerator, a  double sink, a microwave and other appliances. There is no
dishwasher or washing machine but there is a coin-operated
laundromat within walking distance. Laundry service available at a minimum charge.
The bedroom is extremely quiet. The entire apartment is quiet during
the day. In the evenings the living room side is less quiet because
there is a café below, some peddlars and lots of people walking
about an enjoying the scene since Trastevere is a sort of Roman
Montmartre and is quite lively. During the day the cafe is a nice
place for a light lunch and of course Santa Maria is great for
coffee in the morning, and people-watching.

apartment rental amenities

The kitchen is really fully-equipped, with all possible appliances, dishes,
pots and pans, glasses and gadgets. There is a TV with satellite so
you can get CNN , a DVD, should you want to rent some, and a VCR (but it does not take films sold in the U.S.) There is a stereo system, lots of tapes, and many, many books including a broad selection of guidebooks and books on Rome and Italy. Air conditioning is available during the summer and there is an
independent heating system for the winter months.

activities and attractions in Rome Lazio

Trastevere is one of the oldest and most interesting areas of Rome.
By day, it is like a village where everyone seems to know one
another and have the time to schmooz and pass the time of day. There
are many important artistic venues, such as the Basilica of Santa
Maria, churches such as S. Francesco in Ripa and Santa Cecilia, and
museums such as the Villa Farnesina. The apartment is also walking
distance from Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona and Largo Argentina.
And the neighborhood is well connected by bus to all of downtown
Rome. At night, Trastevere shows an entirely different face. Home to
some of the city's most popular restaurants and pizzerie, it is also
full of small clubs, boutiques and "gelaterie" and is, therefore, a
magnet for Italian and foreign evening revelers.

traveler reviews for this rome apartment rental

A perfect base for exploring Rome February 2014

Review submitted: March 24, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

This charming, comfortable one bedroom in Trastevere is perfect for a couple's base in Rome. My husband and I loved the beamed ceilings, the flower boxes, the new, up to date kitchen and bathroom, the quiet bedroom (all the more wonderful as the living room fronts on lively Piazza Sant' Egidio, which is alive with people till late at night). Every wonder of the historic center of Rome was a short walk or bus ride away. We loved stocking our kitchen from the local outdoor market, the local awesome cheese shop, and the local awesome bakeries and wine shops. The kitchen is new, and well equipped for meals at home. And when we ate out, great restaurants were a very short walk away--and a cozy café for morning coffee is right outside the front door. On our one rainy day, we braved the downpours in the morning but loved being able to relax in our own place in the afternoon. So much nicer than a cramped hotel room.

The owner is American and available, accessible, and knowledgeable. She recommended the excellent Roberto to pick us up from and deliver us to the airport. This was our first foray into apartment rental and she could not have made is easier. Highly recommended.

Great apartment, great location

Review submitted: October 21, 2013   Date of arrival: October 7, 2013

We have just returned from a week in Rome staying in this lovely apartment. We were delighted with the apartment and would recommend it wholeheartedly. Already planning our return trip.
The apartment itself is spacious and well appointed - one of the best VRBOs we have stayed in. It is on the first floor, overlooking a small piazza. The location in Trastevere is perfect – removed from the chaos of central Rome, but close enough for easy walking access. Lots of cafes and restaurants, and the area comes alive at night with buskers and people dining out.
The owner was extremely helpful and friendly – from initial booking, through meeting us on arrival, responding to queries during our stay, and even helping organise airport transport on departure.

Apartment in the Trastevere

Review submitted: July 15, 2013   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

We can not say enough about this apartment. This was our first visit to Rome and we spent eight nights in the Trastevere. The owner arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and arranged for a taxi to take us to the train station at the end of our stay. When we arrived at the apartment we were greeted by the owner's housekeeper. She made sure we had a complete tour of the apartment and answered all our questions. We soon found our way to the bridges and local markets. It was so much fun to live in the old part of Rome. Great restaurants were recommended by the owner as well as sights to visit. We felt very much at home in this well equipped apartment. The rooms were spacious, there was plenty of closet space, plenty of drawer space, a wall safe, there was artwork on the walls, books on the shelves, comfortable furniture and bed, and a fully equipped kitchen. Even though some days were hot we were so glad to come home to the apartment where there were ceiling fans in the bedroom, kitchen and living room as well as air conditioning in the bedroom and kitchen. The owner used to live in this apartment so she knows the area very well and gave us much needed advise as to where to go and what things to see. We are highly recommending this apartment to any couple or single person who want to feel comfortable in a home away from home.
