The apartment is beautifully presented with much attention to detail, and is very clean. The owner's love of the house, the town, and its setting is apparent throughout, and is a pleasure . Fantastic views! It is possible to do all your essential shopping in medieval Gaeta, and fun to do this on a daily basis. The walk up and over to the nature reserve to the sandy beach on the other side is both peaceful and full of interest, with wonderful vistas. We were only in Il Mio Mare for a short stay, but it was the perfect antidote to our few days in Rome. Next time we will hire the 'house' yacht to discover the coast....
If you are ok in a small space and able to climb up and down stairs you will love it. It would be perfect for one or two fit travelers. We are both 6ft and had our 10 year old son with us, so it was a squeeze. Especially for my husband the shower was too small. The description has a typo. There is only one bathroom. (And to say it sleeps four would mean 4 traveling college girlfriends maybe?) The upstairs bedroom has a double and single bed. The 4th "bed" is chair that folds out in the kitchen/dining room. The location up 80 steps in Old Gaeta was wonderful for us, we love to walk and had much less guilt for all the Gelato we ate...but there is certainly no elevator! You can drive to the top of the steps and walk down to bring your luggage. But parking overnight up at the top isn't too easy in the summer months. The view was lovely and we enjoyed many meals on the porch. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the owner of the property brought us fresh plums from her tree in the garden below. She couldn't have been more kind and helpful. We didn't speak Italian and she did not speak English, and yet we still have nothing but fond memories of our chats (thanks to Google translate!)
