“Wonderful stay!!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had a fabulous time here! After a 14 hour drive from Germany, it was so nice to find this welcoming accommodation. Everything you need for an extended stay and the coastline/beaches and the heart of Rome only 15 minutes away in either direction. Mauricio is an incredible gentlemen and most gracious host. Would gladly stay here again!

“FABULOUS FLAT”
Reviewed 25 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

"The Walnut Nest" is a FABULOUS FLAT!!! We stayed there for 10 days and absolutely loved it! It was lovely, comfortable, very spacious, and clean. It had all the comforts of home and a little treat I had not experienced before - heated towel warmers. The bus stop, grocery store, and restaurant were only minutes away. The owner, Maurizio Biocca, is a wonderful ambassador for his beautiful country, Italy! He was instrumental in helping us create memories that will last a lifetime. With his guidance we were able to see and enjoy sites in Rome we would not have found on our own. We cannot thank him enough for making our stay so enjoyable! We have already recommended staying at "The Walnut Nest" to several of our friends when they visit Rome. We threw our coins in the "Trevi Fountain", so when we return we will definitely be staying at "The Walnut Nest".

“EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATION EXCELLENT HOSTS”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

The accommodation was situated between coast and central Rome. The facilities within the rental were excellent all as described in advertisement. The host speaks fluent english and both his sons - who were home at the time - were educated in England. We were welcomed into the property by the whole family. The hosts were excellent - I cannot stress how helpful and accommodating they were - there was nothing they could not help us with.
I travelled with my husband, son aged 21, son aged 15 and daughter 10 and there was enough space for us all !! I cannot suggest any improvements for this property and the only problems we encountered was with the bus service into central Rome - but this was not something the owner could prevent!!

Well done Maurizio and family and thank you again!!

“Terrific Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The Walnut Nest is a wonderful place to stay. It is very spacious; there was plenty of room for us to be together or to have privacy if desired. It was an easy drive to Rome and provided a quiet place to retreat to at the end of the day. The coast was also a short drive away. Maurizio is the consummate host and generously--and patiently--answered all of our questions about the area and provided helpful advice about places to visit, where to park, etc.

“Fabulous, spacious flat...Ideally located between the city & beaches.”
Reviewed 20 January 2012 for a stay in August 2011
3
people found this review helpful

I traveled with my young daughters to Rome in July/August of 2011 and reserved at the Walnut Nest based on the wonderful reviews that previous guests had contributed to trip advisor. Well after having stayed there, I can assure you that the Walnut Nest lives up to its reputation ten-fold!
To begin with, Maurizio, the owner of the residence, is quite the kind and gracious host...the epitome of a gentleman. He is also the ultimate source of Information for Roma, its attractions and its history. He welcomed my daughters and I into his home numerous times to partake in Italian family gatherings and homemade dinners. Even something as simple as sharing an espresso with Maurizio in his gardens while my daughters swung on the hammock and picked fresh fruits for breakfast was a delightful treat. He and his lovely sons of course just being the icing on the cake!
The Walnut Nest itself is a fabulous flat, with plenty of space, amenities and overall comfort. It features a full size kitchen, dining areas and a lovely terrace. The Flat is situated a couple blocks down from a major roadway in which one could catch local buses to go to the beach, Rome or Ostia. There are also small grocery stores, restaurants, and gelato shops nearby.
Though taking my daughters to see Rome and her beaches was the ultimate experience, we certainly looked forward to retreating to this lovely home after our day was done.
Simply put, our experience with Maurizio and his flat, the Walnut nest…are memories that my daughters and I will always hold with true fondness in our hearts.
