Thank you so much Mary! Forgive me for posting my review quite late, passed my stay in Rome. We had a fantastic time while in Rome and enjoyed your place. The walking distance to the Vatican and train station was a blessing.
Thank you & looking forward to my next trip back!
Convenient location with great outside space, close to the metro. Mary the owner, friendly and helpful. We had wonderful stay , thank you.
I wanted a pleasant, clean vacation rental in Rome that was conveniently located and at a reasonable price because I was traveling with my spouse and three young adult children (well one was still a teen). Mary's property worked out well for us. It was close to the Vatican which was on out visit list. It was also a short 5 minute walk to the nearby metro station. Most of the interesting places were 15 minutes or less on the metro. The home itself has two levels with the bathroom and sleeping for three upstairs. There's a sofa bed downstairs that sleeps 2 more. The house has a nice enclosed private garden area where we could eat and relax which was nice.
The neighborhood around the home is a working peoples residential area so you will get a feel for typical Rome which is a nice break after spending the day in crowds of other tourists. The neighborhood restaurants serve tasty food at reasonable prices in relaxed settings. We were pleasantly surprised to see people on hot summer evening sitting around the watermelon stand around the corner eating fruit and watermelon like you would more typically expect to see at a cafe (and won't see in a more touristy environment). I should mention that the area has a fair amount of graffiti which was a bit of a shock for me, this being my first visit to Italy. However, as I later observed, Romans and Italy on the whole seems to have a peculiar attachment to graffiti judging by the amount.
To summarize, I think this is good rental for a small groups. It is clean, conveniently located, and well equipped. And Mary, the owner, was super helpful. She arranged for a taxi from the airport for us and gave us a bunch of tips on places to visit in Italy.

Fantastic location and great landlady, helpful, prompt, and available. Wonderful apartment with private street entrance, and well protected by walls and a lovely garden. Well appointed kitchen and Bathroom.
My family have done a few of these types of rentals. I have to say that this is THE perfect place to stay while visiting Rome. We traveled to Mary's place with 4 kids and 2 parents (6 in total). The apartment was well equipped, and in a perfect spot. We were a 10-12 minute walk to the Vatican and Saint Peter's, a 4 minute walk to the "easy to navigate subway," and 1 minute walk to the nearest full grocery market. In addition, the place was very clean and quite.
All that great stuff being said the number one reason to rent this apartment is because of Mary the owner. She speaks fantastic English (which we found was rare in Italy, unlike France and Germany), and she was extremely helpful in finding a secure spot for our large vehicle, and any other questions we had. She goes above and beyond what is normally expected. She is just great.
I would recommend this place for anyone and will send all of my friends who are travelling to Rome to Mary.
