Dream Come True
Turtle's Dream was just that! We wanted to take our entire family to Rome over Christmas and stay in a place that was centrally located and was also big enough to provide comfort and privacy for 6 adults. This apartment fit the bill.
Dr. Morris provided wonderful customer service from our very first interaction. He ensured that we had car service to and from the airport. He was also kind enough to spend a significant amount of time with us after we arrived to familiarize us with Turtle's Dream. They even had a Christmas tree and food and wine waiting for us when we arrived.
Turtle's Dream is very clean and well-maintained. The beds were extremely comfortable and the shower pressure was very nice. The kitchen was well stocked so it was easy to prepare meals. They even had a lightweight grocery trolley that we took to the farmer's market for fresh items for our Christmas Eve dinner.
One of my favorite memories from the trip was the night that Chef Cristina (Cristina Costaguti) came over and prepared a gourmet Italian feast for us. The meal was the best we had while in Italy and she is very charming and gracious.
I would highly recommend Turtle's Dream to anyone looking for a beautiful apartment in a wonderful location in Rome. The Costaguti's were fabulous hosts and Dr. Morris (the property manager) was extremely helpful and prompt with responses to any of our questions.
If you are looking for a vacation rental that tops all others, Turtle's Dream is definitely the place!
Our ideal home in Rome.
We live part of the year in Rome, and we love to invite guests from home (US) as our apartment in Rome is a tad small. This beautiful apartment, the Turtles Dream, was perfect in all respects. It is large, with excellent layout, well furnished, equipped, with finest fittings and decor. The ceilings are high, and the rooms airy. It is also a very peaceful and quiet abode in Rome's frenzy center. The terrace is large, serviced, exclusive, and we loved to hobnob especially in the evenings. The views are terrific, you can single out many of Rome's sights and domes. The palace exudes history and character, like we hardly have experienced in all of Italy. The location was to die for, it was a great surprise, much better, with more animation and character than others we knew in Rome's centre. It's like a little village, nestled in Rome's centre, with all kinds of facilities, restaurants and cafes. We are planning to find a long term in the area, after having discovered it. As for our hosts, Dr. Morris and his team, let alone kind Dr. Costaguti, have all been helpful at all times. Morris also organized our car services and an excursion, which was the highlight of our stay. We recommend this property highly, and will return.
Dear friends, we are glad that you were pleased with our property and with our service, as we know that you are Rome connoisseurs. We strive to improve the property as our mission is to enable our guests to experience a memorable Rome stay. On your next stay you might experience other services we offer, for ex. the "Roman cook at your home", which many guests loved. Arrivederci!
Spacious but noisy
I had been struck by the all 5 reviews that this property received so perhaps my expectations were too high. There were many fine details to the apartment and it is great for multiple families.
I had thought the higher floor would insulate sound better but the piazza is quite noisy very late -- past midnight on weekdays. And the noise in the building (construction, foot traffic) started by 8AM. This was a real kink in the stay. People should consider it.
The area is pretty and convenient and the layout and amenities of the property are charming. Kitchen/dining room in particular were well stocked and warm/inviting.
Dear Mr. Robert,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Thank you also for appreciating the many features of this great apartment, situated in a famous old Rome historical palace.
Allow us though to pour a grain of objectiveness on your remark about the noise. We acknowledge that there was some noise during your stay, yet it was caused by sudden temporary renovation works that occurred in the apartment below ours, of which we were not notified. Once we found out about them, we contacted the owner, and he reassured us that the works were carried out only between Mon-Fri and only from 8:30 am til 4 pm, i.e. during the time in which usually our guests are outdoors sightseeing.
As mentioned, the works occurred in the apartment below, because there are no properties above ours, the Turtles Dream, so fortunately the noise wasn't loud. The works are also temporary, they will end in a few weeks: in the town with the greatest architecture historical legacy in the world, some works are exceptionally necessary, in order to make its visitors find the Eternal City in good shape.
As for the square with the Turtle Fountain, and the location, please appreciate that they are universally renowned for being among the quietest and most charming of Old Rome, off the usual routes of the millions visiting Rome, making it a noisy town since ancient times (even Julius Caesar complained about it). Our property is loved by our guests especially for its quiet, as you can read in all previous reviews. One in particular, describes our property as "Oasis of calm and refinement". Many of our guests in summer leave the windows open to make the gentle Turtle Fountain water splashes become their lullaby. We truly enjoyed hosting you, and we would love to host you again, though we suggest that perhaps on your next Rome vacation you might consider staying in a more peripheral / rural setting near Rome. Kindest regards by Dr. Costaguti, Dr. Morris, Clara and all the staff.
Spectacular Easter Holiday in Rome
In organizing a family reunion in Rome for Easter, we considered ourselves very fortunate to have been able to find several apartments in Palazzo Costaguti. My family and I stayed in the penthouse apartment known as the "Turtles Dream"
The proper manager Dr. Morris Abate took care of everything for us and paid attention to every detail. He organized our airport transfers (which I highly recommend) which got us to our apartment door in less than an hour during the morning rush hour. The Palazzo is in Piazza Mattei which is adjacent to the Jewish Quarter with its characteristic restaurants and shops. It's two streets from the Tiber River (great for a morning jog) and a ten minute walk from the Pantheon or Piazza Navona. In addition to the famous Turtle Fountain, the Piazza has several coffee bar/restaurants and is full of activity during the day and evening, but quiet at night. Dr. Abate was also able to recommend a gym nearby where my wife could get her daily workouts in. There is also a large supermarket a 5 minute walk away for food shopping.
The apartment itself is stunning! In contrast to so many apartments in the historic center which are located on narrow streets with diminished access to daylight, this apartment is flooded with sunlight. The ceilings are very high, the windows are tall and the marble floors are spotless. All the rooms have windows facing the Piazza. The large kitchen has a central island with 4 chairs and is well-equipped and up-to-date; it is very inviting and comfortable. There is a dining table in the kitchen which seats 8 guests. Dr. Abate was also able to provide us with a private chef one evening who after reviewing the menu with us, prepared a wonderful, seasonal Roman dinner for twelve guests.
The bedrooms are large, quiet and the beds are comfortable. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Another highlight of the apartment though is the private roof-top patio. Perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or star-gazing at night over the roof-tops of Rome, a visit up there was part of our daily routine. This is a unique feature which is not commonly found in an apartment rental which we really enjoyed.
You can't go wrong with this apartment; it's everything it says it is and the pictures on-line are very accurate. We had a wonderful time here and hope to return. Thank you again Dr. Abate and the Costaguti family for making our Easter 2018 so memorable!
Dear Mark, it was our pleasure hosting you and your wonderful family. We were struck of how fast you were able to make our property and Rome your home. All roads still lead to Rome, so we eagerly await your return. Please give our warm regards to everyone in the family.
Dr. Morris and staff.
Excellent property and service. Will return.
Third time in Rome, by far this was the best accomodation. The property is as advertized and as the reviews report. We loved everything: the spacious unit, the décor, the terrific terrace Rome views while sipping a glass of wine in the evening, our morning stroll in the Ghetto and along the Tiber banks with the first cappuccino and "cornetto" (a morning dough). The historical palace has great character. Yet the best value comes from the charm and hospitality of the staff and of the owner. Dr. Morris guided us through the process from A to Z, and made us always feel at ease. Owner Dr. Costaguti is charming and helpful, a real gentleman. We are reommending this property, which they call "The Turtles Dream", to family and friends, and we plan to return.
Dear friends, we enjoyed your refreshing mindset, and your interest and curiosity about all things Roman. We are therefore honoured by your review. We count on your return, Rome is a kaleidoscopic town, one never ends discovering it, and you will always find improvements both in the property and in our service. We consider it our mission. Arrivederci!
This apartment is amazing. It was the first time I rented a flat where the reality was better than the pictures. The location is unbelievable, the unit is elegant and confortable. The building is an historical dream. The staff could not have been nicer. We coordinated our stay via email with Morris, who was super helpful. We were greeted by Clara, who was truly a delight. If you are going to Rome with a group, this is the place to stay.
Dear Anthony and friends, thank you for visiting Rome, for staying at the Turtles Dream, and for your kindness. We look forward to your next visit. We always strive to improve the property and our service, so we think you will enjoy it again. Arrivederci!
Ce magnifique appartement est situé au cœur de Rome, entre le Campo de 'Fiori et le Ghetto juif, et près de la Piazza Navona. Il est situé dans le célèbre palais historique et noble appelé Palazzo Costaguti, qui fait face à la place appelée Piazza Mattei, du nom du palais aristocratique opposé, Palazzo Mattei. La place est célèbre pour sa fontaine de Fontana delle Tartarughe, ou fontaines des tortues (1580), célèbre dans le monde entier, considérée par la plupart des Romains et des critiques comme la plus belle de Rome.
L'appartement est situé à l'étage supérieur ou «piano nobile» du fabuleux palais noble «Palazzo Costaguti», l'un des plus célèbres de Rome, et il appartient à ce jour à la famille aristocratique. C'est vraiment une propriété merveilleuse et des plus élégantes.
L'appartement et le noble propriétaire (descendant d'une famille comptant les rois, les vice-rois, les saints et les cardinaux) sont très accueillants et vous feront vous sentir instantanément chez vous - celui dont vous avez toujours rêvé, avec le plus gentil propriétaire.
À proximité, vous trouverez également tous les sites, églises, monuments, places, palais, fontaines, lieux d'intérêt de Rome, monuments historiques, parcs, musées, académies, et n'oublions pas les innombrables restaurants, cafés, bars, magasins (y compris ceux des artisans) , clubs d'artistes, cinémas et théâtres. Tous ces sites et lieux sont facilement accessibles à pied, et si vous n'en avez pas envie, il y a une station de taxi à proximité et les transports en commun sont efficaces, rapides et bien organisés.
En plus de vous permettre de voir et de profiter de tous les merveilleux sites de Rome, le quartier a une atmosphère très chaleureuse. Il y a des dizaines d'épiceries familiales (chacune avec sa spécialité particulière), des boulangers, des confiseries (`` pasticcerie ''), des restaurants renommés et accueillants, des librairies d'art et de livres, des boutiques d'artisans. Les propriétaires de magasins sont très accueillants et vous vous sentirez immédiatement membre de la communauté locale.
L'appartement est situé entre trois des quartiers centraux les plus célèbres de Rome, avec une personnalité complètement différente: 1) Piazza Navona avec sa place élégante, les merveilleuses fontaines et églises et l'atmosphère chic et Dolce Vita; 2) Campo de 'Fiori, le quartier le plus animé de Rome, avec son marché du matin, ses épiceries et son caractère bohème. 3) Le Ghetto juif, avec son charme ancien unique, ses habitants et traditions millénaires, ses boutiques / restaurants historiques / et aussi avec des sites juifs (la synagogue principale, le Musée juif de Rome, etc.).
En fin de compte, vous ne pouviez pas trouver une propriété plus élégante, grande et complète, située dans un palais romain le plus authentique et historique, dans un emplacement unique à Rome.
