WOW! This place is unbelievable! This is the ONLY place we will stay in Rome! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We were initially drawn to the property by the impressive pictures, but times that by ten. In particular, the upstairs sun room and connecting terrace overlooking the Roman Forum was our favorite spot to relax. What drew us to the property, other than the stunning pictures and reviews on the place, were the reviews on the homeowner, and ultimate hostess, Otensia (and her daughter Francesca). This is not your everyday HomeAway property. These two ladies, along with their housekeeper who comes daily, run this place like a 5-star hotel. On a daily basis the beds were made, the kitchen and bathrooms cleaned, the furniture pillows fluffed, the windows spot-cleaned, etc. It was complete luxury!

Prior to coming to Rome, we had a fair amount of email exchange with Otensia looking for recommendations on restaurants, tours, etc. She was always quick to respond with lots of suggestions and guidance. She helped us sketch out a great vacation even before we got there.

We stayed there for five days and wished it was longer. There were four of us, but this place would be perfect for three couples traveling on vacation together or a large family. Each of the three bedrooms have their own newly renovated bathroom. The first day we got there we thought it would be great to relax in our new place with a "home-cooked" Italian meal. So we asked Otensia if she had a chef she would recommend. She quickly arranged this for us, so we ended up inviting her and her daughter to join us. We really enjoyed the conversation with them over the seven courses of our meal - the chef was great and the food was awesome!

We hope to come back to Rome again and if we do, we will only stay here! Thanks again, Otensia!

Unbelievably stunning.

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse overlooking the forum with a 180degree view was breathtaking. It was immaculate and very well appointed. It is located in a very special tranquil section of Rome. Incredibly located with a grocery store and a gem of a restaurant and also a trattoria around the block. We were two couples who thouroughy enjoyed our time there and couldn’t wait to escape back to our apartment. Ortensia, the owner greeted us upon arrival and helped us with reservations, cabs, suggestions, or anything we might need to know. Ortensia was a gift and was always available to us. Five stars isn’t enough stars for this piece of heaven!

Unbelievable home, location and hostess

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't believe the view when I stepped out onto the terrace -- a magical place to celebrate my 50th b-day!! This home is incredible! Our family of five stayed here for one week in April 2018 for our first time in Rome. Contrary to the usual small spaces in Europe, this home is plenty large. Ortensia, the home owner, helped us book several things, including our transfer to/from the airport. The home has a washer/dryer, wifi, Nespresso coffee maker and beautiful bathrooms with great water pressure, clean towels ea. day and robes. Each day the home is cleaned by a wonderful housekeeper. We felt right at home and look forward to staying here again.
