“Charming, homely apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in two of Marida's apartments for our week's stay in Rome, and we loved both of them. The booking and checking in process was easy and efficient, and Marida was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, helping us to book museum tickets and storing our luggage on our last day.

We immediately felt at home in Boschetto cove, with it's cosy feel and attractive beamed wooden ceilings. The apartment is also very well-equipped, with a very comfortable king-size bed, and spacious bathroom with plenty of storage space. The location of the apartment is ideal; in the lovely, safe and friendly neighbourhood of Monti. We found many great restaurants in the neighbourhood, and even an artisan gelateria (Fatamorgana) a few minutes away, which was the best gelato we had in Rome. The only aspect that we felt would have improved the apartment would be having windows to let more light in.

“Great location to see Rome and live with the Romans!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My wife and I stayed at Boschetto Cove for five nights in early May 2013. We arrived by train from Naples and walked to the apartment. The directions provided were great and we met Marida at the doorstep.
The apartment is on the ground floor directly off the street but noise wasn't an issue for us.
We did miss not having a window looking out on the street but compensated by going out and sitting in one of the many sidewalk cafes in the neighbourhood.
We loved the area and with Marida's directions, quickly found a bakery, fruit market, grocery store and butcher. There were many excellent restaurants within two or three blocks of us so other than light breakfasts and one dinner, we didn't cook in the unit. The kitchen was well equipped with basic supplies provided, the wifi worked well and the wall mounted TV provided many Italian channels to watch.
The location is perfect for walking Rome.
The first night we strolled to the Colosseum and got a feel of the area. It felt very safe so we were not concerned with venturing further.
The first full day we walked back to the train station and took a double decker tour of the city. We then walked back and found our way to the Trevi fountain and Spanish steps which were just 15 minutes away. On our way we found a small opera house showing fully costumed performances from five operas which we booked for that evening. We ended up with a very busy day!
The next day we took a guided tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palentine Hill and were amazed at the size and scope of the Roman settlement.
For our Vatican tour the next morning, we booked in advance with Dark Rome tours and were very glad to be led into the grounds ahead of the hordes of tourists. Dark Rome has an agreement with the Vatican to allow its guests entry before the regular visitors. It was an excellent tour with a small group listening with head sets to a very knowledgeable guide.
Our last evening was a walking tour of Trastevere with Eating Itay Food tours. We walked to the Tiber Bridge and met our guide Anna who led a group of 10. We walked through the narrow and historic streets and sampled cheeses, salami, pasta, pizza, gelato and wine. Another wonderful adventure and we certainly did not go home hungry.
We used the private taxi recommended by Marida to travel to the airport and were pleased with the service. Lugging suitcases on the crowded subway during rush hour wasn't an option.
Early May is a wonderful time to visit Rome. The weather is perfect for touring and there are not too many fellow tourists. We left Rome saying we would definitely come back.
