Great holiday had at this accommodation! The place is great with good clean rooms indoors and lovely grounds and swimming pool outdoors. The location is excellent for those coming into Fiumicino airport. Rome itself is accessible via public transport easily enough (though may need taxi ride or 25ish minute walk to metro station). Gary and Irina were great hosts and answered all questions promptly before our visit. If they weren't able to meet us during our stay they ensured a friend or neighbour could do so. It felt like they went out of their way to help and accommodate us. All in all, a great time was had by us all.

We had an absolutely amazing week in September staying in Gary and Irina's home. The house is absolutely gorgeous! There was 6 adults in our group and we loved the big table outside to enjoy evening drinks and meals, or to escape to the shade through the day. The outside sofa was also a winner! The pool was brilliant, and had fun with the diving board. The only thing I would say is that you definitely need a car. The transport links from the train station into Rome are brilliant, and I think you can get a bus to the train station, but to make life easy for yourselves a car is a must. There is free parking at the train station and it is about a 5 minute drive away. Also for grocery shopping you will need a car as there is nothing within walking distance. Other then that, this place is amazing and we would definitely stay again. I would like to say a special thanks to Patrizia who really looked after us and was always at the end of the phone if we had trouble with anything, or just wanted some information on the area.

Gary has a lovely home and we enjoyed our stay despite some electrical issues which Gary's daughter valiantly attempted to deal with. The pool and garden are fantastic and it affords easy access to Rome. We managed without a car but it would have been a lot more convenient if we did have one. The Roman ruins of Ostia Antica are a walks away and are absolutely amazing. The town itself has some very nice cafes, gelaterias and bakeries and there's a Conad supermarket nearby. The house has lots of room and could easily have accommodated another family.

A Relaxing end to our adventurous holiday. Gary picked us up from the metro, gave us a full briefing of the local area, a lift to the supermarket for shopping and arranged our transport back to the airport. We wanted a few days with our family to relax and that is exactly what we had. A well stocked villa with plenty of amenities at our disposal.

Cocoon villa was a lovely place with the private pool. Owners did a simple breakfast for us which was included. They lived next door so we could ask them anything. Bedrooms were good enough room for all of us and made us feel very welcome.

Had a lovely stay in Gary's house. The house is spacious and clean. The pool is great. The house is in a residential area and a car is definitely needed. However the airport, Rome and local shops are very easy to get to!
