Great all around experience

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very nice and greeted us as expected and followed up along our stay to see if everything was alright or if we needed anything. We were a family of 3 (small 6-month old baby) and were provided with a crib and a high chair, which was really useful. The apartment was clean and cosy and location was perfect for us, just right next to Ponte Vecchio but on the other side of the river, outside the city centre. It is only a few minutes walk from most of the main sights, but also close to other less touristy areas where food can be even better and cheaper than in the city centre. Great all around experience in Florence!

Excellent Location, perfect size, nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Ilkay's apt in Florence on our family vacation was the perfect choice for us. Excellent location (absolute walking distance to all places we wanted to see and do, parking right across, food and supermarket, etc.) It was spacious for a family of four (2 adult children). Well stocked. Itkay and Ayla were excellent. They were in touch with us throughout, answered our questions and even took time to wait while we were hopelessly lost in the maze of one-way roads. Apt had everything we wanted. We are happy that Ilkay shared his house with us. We recommend it without any reservations/hesitation to everyone visiting Florence to consider it.
