Description

The space

The apartment has a private garden which needs to be watered every night. So if you don't want this task, you have to allow me to go there (just outside, certainly not in the house) so that it can survive. The garden is in total sun during the afternoon, so it's not advisable for big dogs that need to stay outside, cos they would suffer from heat.
The bed is a queen size(120cmx200cm), not double. If you need more room to sleep, you can find an inflatable single bed in the apartment. Sheets for this bed will be considered as extras if requested or can be provided by the guests themselves.

Guest access

For short stays for holiday only. Other types of hosting, can be asked and taken into consideration, but I can't promise anything. Bed linens, towels, kitchenware and basically all you need for a short stay, is included.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is part of my house. I live upstairs (with separate entrance on the other side of the house), so if you need anything, I can be contacted in any moment and, if reachable, I can be there in one minute. Otherwise, once the door is locked, I am very discreet and my guests will be contacted and disturbed only in case of extreme necessity.

The neighbourhood

The neighborhood is really quite and safe and the area outside is ideal to relax after a day on the beach or visiting the archeological sites, going biking or trekking or whatever you wish to do during your holidays.

Getting around

A holiday with a car or a motorbike is advisable cos public means of transport don't pass very often. You risk to lose the opportunity to see the whole area and especially a lot of corners and beaches that are not otherwise easily reachable. A holiday in the Costa Smeralda without seeing some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, would not be the same. The bus stop is 500 mt away from the house and timetables can be checked on the ARST Sardegna and Comune Arzachena - Lu Pustali websites. No problem about parking the car in the road just outside the house. From here you have the possibility to go to Cannigione (6 km away) or Palau (14 km away) to take a boat (private or public or rented) to go and visit the beautiful archipelago of La Maddalena (I suggest you look for some photos on the internet to have an idea). Apart from the beautiful sea, the area offers several archeological sites, mountain bike and trekking routes. For the night life, if you love clubs, you cannot miss the Ritual, the Pepero and the Sottovento, for a drink before sunset the Terrazza Rosa, where you can see a wonderful view of the entire area till Porto Rotondo and the islands of Mortorio, Tavolara and Molara; for dinner several typical restaurants and the brazilian Churrascaria Aruana where you can eat under the olive trees of Sardinia; for a more relaxed night the Lord Nelson Pub in Porto Cervo Marina and obviously the wonderful Phi Beach, a pub/club on the rocks to the sea where you can see a beautiful sunset and then dance till 1am. Just some example... For the rest, I can give you some hints when you are here!

Other things to note

No smoking in the house. You can in the external area. Pets are welcome. For dogs I need a deposit for eventual damages to the furniture, which will be given back at the departure if everything is ok. Don't leave your pets outside in the afternoon cos the garden is really sunny and they might suffer from heat. That's why the house is not advisable if you have a big dog.
I have a cat that goes in the garden and might try to get in the house if cuddled...


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 5PM

Respect of the recycling rules is requested. Details instructions, bins and bags will be given at the arrival.
A party is not a problem! I just ask my guests not to be too noisy outside every single night cos we are in the town center and the neighbors might complain.

Positive: apartment is big enough for two. Good bathroom, big towels, nice kitchen, wifi, parking in the front, near center and supermarket. A few provisions like coffee and sugar. Breakfast on the terrace (till the sun and the mosquitos come. Sitting on the terrace is only possible before 11 and after 19.00h because the sun is shining on the terrace during the whole day. Even the end of september it is very hot. But in the spring it will be ok.) Could be better: the kitchen equipment is a bit minimal. One wineglass, no canopener, just one normal cooking pan. Negative: the bed is advertized as queen size. Normally that is 1.40 so I didn't asked the measurements. In Italy queen size seems to be 1.20/1.90. And that is too small for tall dutch people. Furthermore, the duvet cover was even for this bed too small. It reached to my shoulders. And every night it was a fight who could have most of the cover ;). Also very annoying were the mosquitos. A strange kind; small mosquitos who only stung during the day, and the stings were quite painful. I had 7 stings in the 15 minutes I was on the terrace.

Marina's place was great! Very clean and private with good access to the town. I loved the little neighborhood that we were in with its authentic Sardegna feel. We traveled a lot to see the island and enjoyed the location of this home to return to.

We spent two nights in Marina's place and we had a great time. We really appreciate that Marina was really flexible with our arrival time. The photos of the house are accurate and the house was very clean and cosy. If you have a car the situation is great because you are close to beatiful beaches and the Archipielago of Madalena. The double bed size was ok for us but may be too small for some couples. If we came here again we would repeat without a doubt.

The Host was very solicitious and warm-hearted. She arranged some typical sardinian Food and Drinks,which helped us a lot for the first day. In case of any Need or questions about the flat, she gave us always good advice and help. The flat had all the furniture you need. Marina gave us some Information about Restaurants, Beaches and other Sightseeing-places. The Neighborhood is relatively quiet. And the parking is directly in front of the House. We didnt have any problems. In Arzachena you got all the Conveniences you need like Pharmacy, Banks, Bars and Supermarkets. We love to be back in beautiful Sardinia and staying with Marina. Greets

Marina was extremely helpful and provided us with anything from extra warm duvets to cleaning supplies to mop up the spill in our car. The flat is located on a quiet street off the main road. It is cozy, has a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious terrace overlooking the steep road below. We really felt at home!

We stayed at Marina's place for two nights and it was a real pleasure. Marina is a nice and obliging host who helped us with bus schedules and all upcoming questions. The appartment is comfortable and spacious for two people and close to bus stops and the city center of Arzachena. The best part about the flat is the terrace where you can have nice meals and have a look at the city. Thank you for everything Marina, your hospitability was outstanding.
