One bedroom remodel with a brand new kitchen dining area, Queen bed, sofa bed, single bed in cubby hole, canopied roof terrace, WIFI and air conditioning. 1 minute walk from main shopping , bars and restaurants while in the center of a quiet and characteristic old quarter.
Our house is in the city center in the old part of Cagliari, Villanova. It is a one bedroom apartment on the second floor with a spacious living room-kitchen and a terrace the size of the entire home. There is a lot of light in the entire apartment. 4 people can sleep comfortably as there is 1 bedroom but the living room has a new sofa bed that folds out to a queen size bed.
We completely remodeled and refurnished the house in March, 2013. The house has all you need to live as if you were at your own house (see below).
The house is 100 meters from a beautiful square called San Giacomo and 300 meters from the center of town. Our neighborhood has undergone a transformation for the better in the past 5 years, House owners and shopkeepers have remodeled their homes and while they have maintained the old feel to it, due to strict building codes, it is clean and polished up. The neighborhood is full of cafe's, restaurants and bars. It is only a 2 minute walk from the shopping center but our house is extremely quiet.
I am American and have lived in Sardinia for 20 years and my wife is Italian. My friends and family call me vacation master and I love helping people plan their time on the island. We have a house in Pula as well- and that house is fun as well if you want to do 5 days here and 5 days there, for example.
Our roof terrace is one of the strong attractions of the house. It is a place in the middle of the city where you can talk, eat, rest and really feel like a local. No great views of the sea but just a feeling of living like a local, enjoying a lot of space on top of your house and taking in some sun or staying in the shade and taking it all in.
We keep the house very clean as we are clean freaks:0).
What is included?
Fully equipped and stocked kitchen (olive oil, coffee, tea, pasta, salt, sugar).
2 sets of sheets and 2 sets of towels.
Air conditioning and heating.
Hair dryer, dishwasher, clothes washing machine.
High Speed Wifi throughout the house and on the roof terrace.
Roof Terrace is equipped with tables and chairs to have meals and to stay out even when it is sunny and hot (we have a sort of canopy-gazebo on the rooftop).
We have a cleaning lady who can come midweek for €10 per hour.
Please note: my stairs are steep so if you have any problems with walking, maybe not for you.
If you have a car, there is a parking lot 200 meters from my house and it costs €5 per day. You can also find parking near my house on the street for €1 per hour.
PLEASE remember my house is in a no driving zone so while you can risk it and drive and drop off your bags in front of the house ONLY from7 to 15 and 17 to 21). you can only stay there in time to drop off the bags and make sure you park in a place where you leave space for the city bus to get by.
You have access to the entire house. it is a comfortable home with everything you need to cook, go to the beach, etc. If you get in at a strange hour, I have a way to leave a key in a secret hiding place so you can arrive when you want and pick up the key without me coming at 2 am to open the door:0).

A lot. I am social and love helping you. This can go from a simple coffee or beer upon your arrival where I give you suggestions to a planned dinner, outing...I find no great satisfaction than helping visitors enjoy the Italian/Sardinian culture to the max and doing what I can to help you get that local insight which often gets lost in translation.
I have a number of friends that do cool things and can make your vacation richer. This goes from going to the market with a local chef and cooking with him to talking a guided walking tour of the city with my son or with a more speficic guide if you are looking for art history. I am a golfer and am happy to spend a day on the golf course with you or hook you up with my golf pro. I have friends who have boats, I can organize all sorts of food or nature activities.
Please treat my house as if it where yours. Garbage is recycled, so you need to separate plastic, cans, glass and the rest. If you break something please let me know and please use the beach towels for the beach and please try to use towels sparingly.
