Eric: The experience in Florence was stunning

Diana and her team are simply amazing. The experience in Florence was stunning. We loved the apartment for its style, proximity, and hospitality. I hope to visit Florence again in the future and will definitely be booking with Acacia for sure when I return. - Eric

Colette: This apartment was the perfect "home"

This apartment was the perfect "home" for our time in Florence. It was comfortable and conveniently located! My favorite thing about it is the traditional styling...we wanted to make sure that even when inside, we knew we were in the heart of a beautiful Italian city, and this apartment did just that. It's located on a very well-kept street and in walking distance to everything in Florence. We appreciated the supply of movies on DVD, which provided for some relaxing evenings after active days in the city. It was also supplied with some essentials like coffee, espresso, sugar, toilet paper, etc. One minor issue is that on nice evenings, it would get loud with people/music echoing from the Piazza del Strozzi, but we found that closing the interior shutters in addition to the windows, helped a lot. We hope to visit again some day!!!”

Juliet: It was an amazing 5 days in Florence

It was an amazing 5 days in Florence. The apartment was spanking clean, big and spacious as the photos show. Yes, it is definitely in a noisy part of town, but if you have earplugs that will help a bit (or lots of wine!) The apartment is in the middle of it all, a sweet little market just outside our door. Everything you need is close by. Diana has a beautifully curated Welcome book + map of the city of Florence with all the information/tips a visitor could want. We will definitely return. Thank you!

lauren: This place is absolutely adorable!

This place is absolutely adorable! The view from the terrace is so stunning I cried a bit the first time I took it all in! The bed was ridiculously comfy, the decor was beautiful, and it was in a great location (we walked everywhere easily- 5-10 minute walk to a major shopping district, 15-20 minute walk to the Florence Cathedral, 20-25 minutes to the train station). It’s definitely small overall, but was definitely doable for the 3 days we were there. The bathroom was very narrow and has a shorter angled ceiling so it causes some...creativity for taller people (my husband is 6 foot tall and just had to be careful about not bumping his head or knees) but we found we had that issue just about anywhere in Italy we stayed. We had everything we needed and made a few meals there without problem. We were also arriving late at night and they arranged a self check in which went perfectly and was easy to do. I absolutely recommend staying here anytime you’re in Florence and we would be glad to stay again if we come back!!!

Deborah: Great Location

Great location, quiet and with plenty of restaurants close by. Very clean and comfortable. Great check in. We were met by Diana who very kindly helped us with our luggage up the 5 flights of stairs. She provided us with a fantastic map marked with the main attractions, restaurants and lots of other helpful information. We had one night, quite late, the hot water went out and I messaged Diana not expecting to get a response till the morning but she was very quick to respond and helped us rectify the situation, which was very much appreciated. Enjoyable stay in Florence. Thank you

Michael: Amazing place.

Amazing place. Right next to the beautiful Santa Croce church. Super quiet and super stylish. Suited us perfectly. Diana had a phone she loans to guests with google maps and calls included. Helped us so much renavigating the city. She has also created her own map of the city, with eating spots and must sees, that she gives to everyone on arrival! We tried a few of her recommendations and her taste was excellent. She also helped us with various needs we had in our stay there and all in all helped make being in Florence super easy to navigate. Highly recommend

Chris: Wonderful authentic apartment

Wonderful authentic Florentine apartment; you feel like you are staying at your Italian Grandmother's flat (in a good way!). Wonderful quirky space with rooftop terrace, and beautiful antiques filled living spaces. A warm and homey space to retreat from the bustle of Florence. Wonderful central location, and very helpful owner who has a free i phone loaded with great ideas and cell/internet access. Thank you Diana!

Rob: Great location in the heart of Florence

Great location in the heart of Florence, only minutes away from the Duomo and easy walking distance to everything. Well appointed kitchen and living areas. Open the windows and listen to the buskers next to Basilica di San Lorenzo. Appreciated the briefing from our host with tips for enjoying the city. Really handy to the Mercato Centrale Firenze (Florence Central Market). Skip the stalls outside and go for the food - watch pasta being cooked downstairs and great food from the food court upstairs. · Steps. I know it's an old building, and the view really was worth the climb, but you need to be prepared to drag your suitcases up 87 steps. Just be aware...

Gudbrand, Norway: Plenty of good choices for restaurants and bars around the apartment

It’s a spacious apartment, with a bit unusual layout. Not that it was a problem. It’s a bar on the ground floor that plays loud music, particularly in the weekends. You can hear it in the apartment, but didn’t bother us much. Very easy to get to downtown, with just a five-ten minutes walk across the bridge. There are also plenty of good choices for restaurants and bars around the apartment.

Gordon, USA: Cats, brilliant rooftop balcony and quirky historic features

Diana's place makes sure you continue the experience of being in Florence. It seeps with historic quirkiness that you need to see and feel to understand. Those tight streets and beautiful corner awnings are part of the feel you get inside. Diana's place has more space than we could utilise but we did appreciate it. Also, for the cat lovers within the Air BnB community you may be frequented by one of Diana's gorgeous cats. One unusual aspect of the place is that Diana has three sets of doors to access the apartment. You have the huge double door to the street, then 62 steps to a door into a shared corridor that has a further door into the apartment. That shared corridor has two offices Diana has for her businesses. I believe this is a good aspect of the apartment as Diana and her team are happy to help. Once you are established, you feel completely independent and comfortable to enjoy the apartment including the brilliant rooftop balcony and quirky historic features.

Gray: A great and spacious apartment

This is a great and spacious apartment especially if you take the place requiring more than 2 bedrooms. The bedrooms are large for an apartment located in an older structure the baths are not cramped but , as usually the showers are a challenge to bigger people. This is not a place for large meal prepping the kitchen is tiny compared to the rest of the place. It does not have a microwave which I would strongly recommend adding.The location is just perfect just minutes from Duomo, The Academia the Central Market Do go to Narbone for a beef sandwich and just around the corner from Jimmy's Leather my personal favorite store. All in all you can't go wrong staying here.

Ross: great apartment

This is a great apartment in Florence. Location is close to everything. We walked to everything. We came in/out by train. it is only 500 meters from the Florence SMN station. It is very clean and comfortable. We had 4 adult couples. Each had their own room with bath. The property i was clean and well maintained. It was the end of September and it had cooled off so we really enjoyed the courtyard. Diana was friendly and eager to assist us. Overall , a great stay in Florence. We would definitely use it again

Melania Torok: Everything about Baobab was perfect

Everything about Baobab was perfect — the stylish decor of the apartment, the amazing location a 2 minute walk from the Uffizi and the Palazzo Vecchio, as well as tons of great little bars and restaurants right in the heart of the city. The house was spotlessly clean, well stocked and the team were so incredibly helpful throughout the entire booking process and welcomed us so warmly that we felt instantly at home.

Ali: Both check out and check in were a breeze.

The space was beautiful, and perfectly located for ease of access to all things in Florence. Maximum 20min walk to anywhere you’d really want to go. Plenty of options for food nearby. We were met by Neri who was lovely and pointed out some nearby amenities. Both check out and check in were a breeze.

Danielle, Canada: A one minute walk to a square with restaurants yet was quiet

The house was perfect! Great location, it was clean, organized with all amenities. It was a one minute walk to a square with restaurants yet was quiet. Diana was awesome, she organized taxis, answered all my questions and came to say goodbye. I would stay here any day!!! Thank you so much!!!

Amazing location

Amazing location and very responsive and accessible management. Diana is terrific. The gift of a mobile device for the length of stay is incredibly helpful , especially the digital walking/driving map and local/international calling... easy and free!!!

Definetely recommended

Diana’s house was wonderful. It was not too far from the station and not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Easy to find and close to everything. Would definitely recommend

Kris: what a warm welcome

A Fantastic apartment situated less than a block off the Piazza dei Signori. Super comfortable will all the amenities you might need - extremely communicative hosts and just a generally great experience. Keep in mind that you're smack dab in the middle of the city, so bring along those earplugs for sleeping. Will definitely return!

Amie: The View is amazing

I just love this apartment!! Location is great...and the view is AMAZING! The bed , pillows and towels are top notch! I can find no fault in this lovely apartment. That being said it is not for tall people or people that find stairs hard. There are a lot and walk up the street is difficult. But I love it!! Thanks to Diana! a great host!

Robin: Exceeded location for the busy season in Florence

Lovely spot near the Ponte Vecchio. It’s a steep (but short) hike from the bridge, in a relatively quiet area and with wonderful views. Basically, you’re a short walk from the action, but just enough removed so you can get a peaceful night sleep. My husband and I (40s) stayed with my mother (70s) and it was perfect, although my mom complained a bit about the hill and the couple flights of stairs to the apartment.
