The description of the house was accurate. The host Ms. Bruna was very nice and helpful. I have communicated with her many times prior to our trip. She provided us a hand-made map. She even found out excursions from a hotel for us although we were not the guests of the hotel. Upon our arrival, she waited for us at a convenient location and walked us back to the house. Then she drove us to a market for food. In addition, we didn't get our luggage after the arrival at the airport. So Ms. Bruna helped us to arrange a Taxi and picked up the luggage the next day afternoon. We really appreciated her help.
About the house, it is in a gated marina community right by the beach. Also, it is right next to the Forte Village Resort where my husband went for his conference. He could just walk there. We felt very safe during our stay. The house is small as described but we were fine with it. Although the bathrooms and shower facilities were out dated, we managed ok. There were 2 small markets within walking distance so we bought groceries there. We were happy that we found this place to stay. We will certainly stay there in the future if we have a chance again.
Overall, we have had good experience with Airbnb. We love the idea of "You don't visit Italy, you live in Italy."
