From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiles by two of the owners children. They were friendly and very helpful. Heather was great every step of the way. She helped us make reservations for dinner at a local restaurant and gave us many suggestions of local places to eat and see. We had a great time and our adult children enjoyed the nightlife! We highly recommend staying in this lovely apartment.
Lovely large apartment with four generous bedrooms, perfect for our party of 6 adults and 2 kids. Location was fine, c30 mins walk to the main station and a bit further to the centre - quicker by bus but walking was pleasant. Minor niggles like the lack of comfy seating in the lounge (a sofa & 2 chairs meant a couple of us were on desk chairs) but overall well appointed and the kids loved the games and toys. Heather was very responsive and helpful and the apartment was just what we wanted.
Heather was the best, most responsive host ever. She spoke to me months earlier and helped me arrange tours and figure out logistics for our Florence stay. Onsite, she was an amazing resource. Florence is not the easiest city to navigate but she made it easy for us. Upon arrival, Heather provided a map and gave us a rundown of important areas, restaurant recommendations and transit options. The tours she arranged were fantastic as well.
The apartment is great for families (we had 11 in ours). It is spacious, clean and conveniently located close to the bus station and grocery stores. We even walked home on several occasions from the Duomo and it wasn't that long of a walk.
If we ever return to Florence, we would stay with Heather because she is indeed a superhost and really just a very kind and attentive person. Thank you for a great experience, Heather!
This spacious apartment was perfect for our family consisting of four adults and three children 6,8 and 10. It was conveniently located in walking distance or easy bus trip to the city center. It is surrounded by many excellent restaurants, cafes and gelaterias. Our host Heather went above and beyond to assure that we all had a great vacation.
We had a lovely stay in Florence at this apartment. Very roomy and equipped with everything. We were two of a party of six (younger) people. For our backs, the beds were not comfortable for us, but everyone else were quite happy! The best part is Heather who gave us a walking tour of the great places to see (only a 20 min walk to Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori) Piazzale Michelangelo, Uffizi Gallery. Accademia Gallery. San Lorenzo Market, etc. there is even a market at the end of block. Also Heather knows the best and closest places to eat. I highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Florence.
