Dear Amanda and Barrie, we enjoyed meeting you and the apartment was perfect...good, light space, comfy and well appointed. The gas/wood stove is just the thing for good heat and efficient good looks, love the skylights. Grateful thanks
We loved staying at Amanda's apartment. We were visiting local colleges with our two teenage daughters and the location was very convenient. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very clean and bright. We would definitely stay here again!
Appartement très bien situé, très chaleureux, agréable, éclairé et aménagé.
This apartment is everything one could want from a rental. Clean, incredibly cozy and welcoming and in a perfect area. The hosts are wonderful and clear with directions and expectations. Couldn't have been better!
This is our third time to stay in Florence, MA at Amanda's apartment. We have family in the area and really appreciate the ability to cook our meals at home. This apartment provides a well stocked kitchen with sharp knives and cutting boards. Any time the apartment is available and we are in the area, we will stay at Amanda's place.
