Airbnb asks people who use their service to write a review of where you stayed, in order to give feedback to your host and other prospective clients. The system gives you a month to post your review, which means I am running of time.  My writing needs to do double duty these days, so I thought I would post my reviews here for everyone to see.

View from our Venice window
Sabrina was a great host for us in Venice. She was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and was happy to share what she knew with us. When my Mom's walker didn't make it to Venice with us on our plane, Sabrina helped get it delivered to us at the apartment. Even when we made a mistake on our last day, she and her husband were quite gracious with us.

The apartment was clean and neat. The main bedroom was quite roomy. There was some outside noise, as other people have noted, but it didn't bother my parents at all. The pull-out bed in the living room/kitchen area was quite comfortable. The neighborhood was lovely, with two close vaporetto stops, a grocery store, cafes, a church and a large plaza all nearby.

View from our window in Rome
Rose has a lovely, funky apartment. It was our favorite place to stay in Italy. We especially loved the little kitchen and the view out the window. We felt very Roman when we took our laundry to the roof to hang it up to dry.

The apartment is in a quiet building near the Vatican. The other residents of the building were always very friendly when we met on the stairs or at the elevator. The neighborhood is obviously a real one, where Romans live, rather than full of tourists. My only regret is that I didn't manage to go for a swim at the local pool only a block away!

Any questions or additions for the reviews?
