The month of May the space has been cleaned up for expo, and is excellent condition, I would hope it could stay that way, but whatever happens it can be cleaned up again. Pets are welcome, but please no smoking, do that in the garden.

The space is certainly quite large, and we were a sports team wanting a place to crash for the weekend tournament, so suited us very well. To be clear on the beds, which we were concerned about - there are 5 single beds, one fold out couch (small double or large single), and anot…

Douglas was an amazing host and he had put in a lot of effort to ensure that we have a comfortable stay. The apartment is a big basement with some lovely pictures. Since it was winter when we stayed, Douglas installed an extra heater to ensure we had a cozy sleep. Really delighte…

The house offered be Douglas looks beautiful in pictures. But unfortunately, that's not what it really is like. Its a makeshift studio apartment with not even basic amenities like blankets and toilet paper available. It was fairly cold when we visited Milan (Oct 15-16) but we wer…

Response from Douglas:
On the first cold rainy week of the season, during the most crowded event in the history of northern Italy, Expo, I was able to respond and confirm within 20 minutes of her request. That week alone many people found apartments on a speeding train more than an hour away 120K. When you overload the system, such as claim 7 guests, but there were 8, the system will break down, There are 5 single beds and one mini double, with 6 blankets, if I know that there was another guest I easily could have gotten another blanket or two from my home 6 minutes away, In Italy on Oct.15 all apartments turn on the heating, I have no control over this, but I have installed 5 new heaters (4 years ago) plus one old one, they all were on max. The heating is on mornings, lunch hour, late afternoon, and evening, all centrally controlled. As I said showers must be organized at different times, and taken quickly, half of the water pressure works twice as long as full, the shower installed in may is 3 meters in height, if you turn the handle of the running water in the bathroom to the left you will get hot water, but not to the right, a simple sms could have solved this. In the photo of the micro kitchen yes there is a electric stove top with two burners, one for the pasta water, and one for the sauce, pre-pare on one of the two tables before, and I can make a super pasta dinner, but dont forget you are in Milan Italy, during Expo which is all about food, this is one of the reasons I love Italy great food everywhere! Make a great dinner at home, or a simple quick pasta in my studio. As a host for the general public as this, I have all of the basics but my wife would not permit me to bring the fine utensils we have at home, one of the wooden utensils was slightly burnt, but that happens to all of them in time. The small kitchen was not prepared for the 12 liters of boiled milk that was prepared during the 22 hour trip, I have 3 trash cans and outside to door was also another two. Its nice when you have a large group to help out with your personal trash, to leave so much in all of the trash cans can make your last visual image not as beautiful as a bright sunny day in may. After the taxes that I have already paid on this transaction, a price of 14.875 euro per person is quite a deal, during the highest of high season, If that seems to be shit overpriced for 150sqm. studio with 4m. ceilings, and a private garden just as the photos, location 120m. from the metro, then you may not be the kind of guest I am looking for. For all the people between 4-6 this is perfect, the 7th works when there is a couple, but 8 which was not disclosed begins a system overload, (the 8th person used the large blanket of the mini double which became their bed making others cold) When, as a host I have tried my very best, to have everything clean, and purchased new beds and put in a new shower, respond quickly, and had to clean for 3 hours plus wash all of the sheets, and all of the dishes, and to return an hour later because you are not ready when leave when you say, it hurts to have such an awful bitter review.
