Sunny house with garden

Our house is a two-story building with yard on a quiet street and in a friendly area. We have a nice and independent cat who goes in and out of the house and into the backyard through flap doors that are not in your living/sleeping quarters. The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom upstairs has a king size bed and a bathroom next to it. The double bedroom downstairs has a queen size bed and a bathroom en suite. Both bedrooms have large closets and both beds are very comfortable. To go from the entrance to the upstairs area, you need to go up 5 stairs and a flight of stairs. The bedroom downstairs opens into our back yard. The living/dining room is sunny (with two large windows and double roll up shades) and has an open L shaped plan and a corner office area. We provide WIFI throughout the house, a TV set (no TV channels, but a cable DMI to connect to your laptop for streaming and also a selection of DVDs you can play from our DVD reader). We also have a nice amp with good sound system that you can connect to your device to play your own music. We do not have AC but San Francisco has cool summer weather. Our kitchen is very well stocked with every implement for cooking (including convection, regular oven and microwave oven), blender, cuisine art cake mixer, good quality pans and pots, several types of coffee makers, electric tea kettle and a dishwasher. The house has a washer and a dryer in the garage. Please use our own environmentally friendly detergents. Tap water is drinkable. The house is very quiet and on an uphill/downhill stretch of about 25 yards to reach flat streets that in 3 minute walk will take you to the commercial strip of Cortland Avenue. You can park your car parallel to our double driveway all the time (except for 2 hours on Tuesdays for street cleaning). Highways 208 and 101 access ramps are close to our house. If you are on foot, buses that go downtown and to BART are at less than 5 minute walk from our house. Our neighborhood has good restaurants (3rd Cousin, Red Hill Station, Vega, Vino Rosso, Bernal Star, to name a few) several coffee shops and a few pastry stores. It also has The Good Life, a very good grocery store (less than 10 minute walking distance from our house), Avedano, an excellent meat and fish store that also makes exquisite grilled sandwiches, a dry cleaner (less than 5 min walk), a few other deli’s, a public library and 2 parks (Holly Park: with baseball, basketball, tennis court, children play ground and picnic area, and the Bernal Heights Recreation Center, with children play ground right behind the public library and a basketball court right South of it). Down the hill from our house is the largest farmers' market in San Francisco (every Saturday morning) and flee market (every Sunday morning). We have a good relationship with our neighbors and we ask you to please not play loud music after 10 pm. If you book for a stay that is longer than 2 weeks we will offer a free cleaning with change of linen every 10 days; you will pay for the last cleaning only. As for our cat: we set up a few things for her in the garage and our cleaning lady will need to coordinate with you to come for 15 minutes every 5 days, - in the garage area only - to clean up and check on the feeding/drinking and electronic litter box. Upon departing please make sure: to leave all furniture the same way you found it, to clean pots and pans and dishes (please don’t leave dirty dishes in the machine, you can do a last dishwasher run, even if it is not full) and to leave the house keys on the dining room table. Received payment of security deposit Plus 30 percent of rental will confirm your booking.

Cecilia's place is a gem. It's central, comfortable, and we highly recommend it. We are a family of four with young children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The roof-top terrace is delightful. The flat is a charming, tidy place with high ceilings and workable well-organised kitchen. Shops of all sorts and great restaurants nearby. Cecilia was wonderfully helpful and communicative with us at all times. Excellent. Also, Lecce truly is an exceptional place. Winding streets, unique architecture, beaches only a short car-ride away, and of course lots of terrific Italian food. The city is hushed and hot during the afternoons, but we took advantage of this to go for short walks. I don't use words like glow and shimmer often to describe a city, but for evenings in Lecce they fit perfectly. Excellent Shena 9/2/2016 1:30:00 AM
We enjoyed a very comfortable 30-days vacation at Cecilia's apartment. It's clean, quiet and in a great location - maybe a 5 minute walk to St. Oronzo Square - Lecce's main square and the ancient Roman amphitheater . It's location is an easy 15-20 minute walk from the train station. taxi's charge a minimum fee of USD$10.00. The rooftop terrace is excellent for relaxing, having breakfast, lunch or dinner. Wi-fi was excellent. Large kitchen with almost everything a Chef needs. Only problem is the caretaker Hari doesn't speak English. So, we needed to communicate with Cecilia via e-mail to San Francisco about a few concerns - not complaints. Payment and refund security deposit was okay. Excellent VHZ 8/2/2014 9:06:00 AM
We had a most delightful time staying in Cecelia's delightful apartment in the center of Lecce. This is a very old building that has been totally renovated in a most tasteful fashion without losing the charm of its original Baroque beauty. I cannot stress how comfortable the apartment is with a fully equipped kitchen where we prepared dinner nightly and comfortable sofas to drop into after a day walking the surrounding historical district. If you are thinking of visiting Puglia don't miss out on this place
