Testimonials


Is CR(Commendable Rentals) truly an extraordinary agent in providing exemplary customer service? Unequivocally yes!

CR’s portfolio of properties clearly represent a range of beautiful and highly sought after rentals in some of the most desirable locations. The service provided by Susan,the proprietress of CR,on our holiday in Paris was exemplary proving that not only is the choice of the property important but the organization behind it is critical.

Susan responded to our questions immediately,thoroughly and in a most supportive manner. The service Susan provided reflected a level of integrity and empathy that affirmed CR’s commitment to insuring clients of the most professional and pleasant rental experience.

In retrospect we felt that Susan was like a family member who was dedicated to making certain everything worked perfectly during a special vacation. If only we could take such holidays much more frequently..with CR and Susan attending to the details.

The location of this apartment in the center of Trastevere is perfect. Cafe’s, restaurants, night life abound. The apartment was perfect as a starting point to explore all the major must see sites of this wonderful city. The accommodations this trip were perfectly appointed. Nicely stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, large bathrooms, cozy living and dining area all make this apartment the perfect place to call home at the end of your touring day. This being the 3rd time i have used Commendable Rentals, as always, they did not disappoint in their description of the property or their impeccable service. Without hesitation I highly recommend them for any travel plans you might have through many parts of the world.

Susan and Adrian are charming hosts to their beautiful apartment in the center of Uzès! We found our second visit even better than our previous stay because they have added a pool to their garden. and made it accessible for the Chez Vous guests. The apartment is just steps from the heart of town where there is a great local market 2X a week. It is beautifully decorated and feels homey and elegant at the same time. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is fully fitted out for the most discerning cook. Relaxing with a glass of wine in the living room overlooking the garden is a perfect way to end the day! We hope to return soon!

What a beautiful home. The frescoed ceilings in the living and dining room are exquisite. We highly recommend This property. There were 5 of us, including our 8 year old grandson and plenty of room. The location is perfect, kitchen up to date. Commendable homes, which we have used before, could not have been more accommodating and helpful, especially after my fall and breaking my nose while walking to the Vatican. Thank you Susan and Adriana.

Timeless Rome Guest, January 18, 2017 (Historic Center of Rome, Italy)


We were very lucky to find our apartment through Commendable Rentals because it is like having a great apartment with a private concierge service attached. The two story apartment in Trastevere was perfect for two couples or a family. It came well stocked and the owner met us and showed us around. It was an added plus to have a washer/dryer and dishwasher. There was a great view from the little balcony. Trastevere is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Rome and one of the hippest. Great restaurants and bars. Before we even arrived in Rome, Adriana and Susan from Commendable sent us all sorts of helpful information, arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and even made hard-to-get dinner reservations for us. When I realized I had left our passports in the apartment, after we were already in Venice, Commendable took care of everything for us, even though it was New Year’s Day. This was a great apartment to stay in, made ever so much better by our association with Commendable Rentals. I highly recommend the apartment and Commendable.

I cannot say enough about my stay in this beautiful apartment. It’s a studio yes. But it’s so exquisitly done that you don’t notice or care! It’s large and airy with soaring ceilings and window seats that allow you to sit with your morning coffee, your afternoon wine or proseco, your evening limonchello or sambuca, and watch the life in the piazza. My first time in Rome I stayed at the Hotel Cavalieri, a 5 star luxury resort. It is true luxury. But my time in Susans apartment outshined even that experience. I will never stay anywhere else!

This was the second time I have used Commendable Rentals. The apartment in Uzes is stunning, comfortable and most importantly a home. I can say enough about this company as they are at the ready for anything you may need to make your experience the best it can be. As far as the town of Uzes – it is definitely worth the trip. A walking village where the locals are wonderfully welcoming, great restaurants and history abound. The town is conveniently located to many other villages in this part of France. It serves as a great home base. If however, you don’t want to travel, it is a great place to relax and rejuvenate.

The most professional team you could imagine and a location with something for everyone. Their recommended driver( Elie ) meet us at the airport and when he heard we hadn’t had breakfast he stopped the car at a local shop and bought us coffee and a wonderful pastry. Alessandro meet us at the door to the cool air conditioned apartment and explained what we needed to know for our stay. That evening I received another email from Adriana suggesting a few possibilities for sightseeing. I would stay at Dieci again as well as any other location represented by Conmendable.

– Dieci Guest, August 5, 2016 (Trastevere, Rome, Italy)


This is the second time my company used this property for our clients and again it was a wonderful experience. The property is located on a beautiful piece of property and is well maintained. Dragi our caretaker was great and went well beyond the call of duty to take care of all of my guests throughout the week. We will definitely use this property again should we have clients wanting to spend time in the Bavaria area of Germany.

What an adventure! We set out each day with a destination in mind, and promptly found ourselves lost. That was half the fun of Rome. The city is culturally and historically stunning — every boulevard, lane and alleyway whispering from the past. I can no longer recall what we expected upon arriving, but in the end experienced so much more. Thank you Susan, Adrian, Adriana, Amrita, for your kindness and hospitality. We can’t imagine having a more comfortable and welcoming and ideally located home in Rome. Until next time…

Roma Romantica Guest, January 3, 2016 (Historic Center of Rome, Italy)


The charming and helpful Amrita from Commendable Rentals assisted with all the details, including booking a driver from the airport (recommended!) and greeting us… Definitely not a “cookie cutter’ experience. We were very fortunate to meet the gracious and interesting owners Susan & Adrian who happened to be in town. The flat became a welcome haven after days of sightseeing and our 10 days just flew by. Grazie!

– Roma Romantica Guest, July 2, 2015 (Historic Center of Rome, Italy)


This apartment is spacious, beautifully furnished, and in one of the best areas of Rome. It was quiet and comfortable. The management was so helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back to stay at this great place when we return to this fabulous city.

– Da Leone Guest, August 12, 2015 (Historic Center of Rome, Italy)


“………The fact that you can get so many places so easily and can find fabulous dining only metres away from the property make it an ideal place to stay. Susan, Amrita, and Alex were incredibly helpful at every point–from the first email we sent to their accommodating us for an extra day when our flight back was cancelled. This is a great property in an amazing part of Rome; it is managed with tremendous care and professionalism. We’d stay there again in a heartbeat and have already begun to recommend this property–and this rental company–to everyone we know!”

“Peace of Mind in an Excellent Location”
Our family found ourselves without an apartment when another apartment rental fell through just days before we were to leave for our trip to Rome. We were lucky enough to find Commendable Rentals and it was apparent that we had stumbled upon a professional rental company from our first conversation. Susan and Amrita provided a quick response to every question and request. The apartment was clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything needed. The location was perfect for evening dining and touring. Although being in the middle of the restaurant district meant a bit of noise, this minor inconvenience was worth the location and comfort of the apartment. I do not hesitate to recommend this apartment, but also Commendable Rentals. We will contact them next time we are traveling in one of the locations they serve.

“Hi Adrian,

Indeed, we arrived home about 1 hour ago. A little sleepy but not as bad as when we went over.

Bev and I can’t thank you and Susan enough!! The trip was faultless…and so educational. Whether we were learning about South African politics, the people, the animal behaviour, the fauna, the economic system, judicial system, apartheid, the banks ( didn’t realize they were rated # 6 in the world…terrific accomplishment! )etc etc, it was just a fabulous experience! And the weather didn’t hurt either!! Your contacts and arrangements made it so easy for us to really enjoy ourselves….we really are extremely appreciative for all you did for us.

Once again, thanks so much for all you did to make our journey to South Africa so memorable.”
Gord & Bev, Toronto, 15 February, 2012


We are three families from Norway who have been in Italy on vacation the last 10 years. This is the best rental home we have ever had. The service provided from commendablerentals.com was excellent,friendly and effective! The villa was perfectly clean, beautifully decorated and conveniently furnished. The view was amazing, and the surroundings stunning. The beach and interesting sites where all in reach.”

“This was my first experience of a villa holiday in Italy (having previously stayed in hotels), and I can honestly say that I won’t be going back to hotels if other villa’s live up to the standards set by this one. The place itself was immaculately clean and had a sense of character about the house that is entirely devoid in hotel rooms. The furnishings were comfortable and plentiful, and the grounds ideal for relaxing (or exercising, as was the case on some days). Situated a 10 minute drive from the nearest town (Todi) it was the right balance of being away from activity but also not way out in the sticks. The nearby villages were lovely and Izzalini had a superb bakery which provided us with bread and pastries every morning. A special mention also to a local restaurant (I Cibbiochi), 5 minutes drive from the villa, and serving the kind of Italian food that is making me hungry just at the memory of it.

Overall, I can’t fault the villa, the area, or the country and look forward to my next visit.”

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our holidays in this nice home and beautiful area. Loved our lazy days at the pool as well as exploring the area and its vineyards (which resulted in much excess luggage going home …..). With our thanks and best wishes”
B&K, M&N, SWEDEN, Sept 2009


“Thank you for introducing us to Sermoneta; the whole village was like a scene out of a fairy tale. We especially enjoyed the pizza restaurant, “Il Mulino”. If you are ever around Hertfordshire, please look us up”
R,R,B & K – ENGLAND, Aug 2009


“Many thanks for two lovely weeks’ break from the chaos of Rome, and for your hospitality. Sermoneta is lovely and I did finally get to visit the castle, which was well worth the effort on the hottest day of the year”
K&M, ITALY, Aug 2009


“Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home. We have enjoyed the beautiful scenery you look out to from the pool. The Piazza at the top (of the village) was so friendly, and your neighbours always spoke to us. We couldn’t have chosen better”
B,I,M & B – SCOTLAND, July 2009


“Sermoneta is a delightful place to spend a week. We were blessed with great weather and were able to spend long days by the pool, or exploring the enchanting narrow streets. For those who enjoy eating out, we found “Bonifacio VIII” and “Il Mulino” to be the best”
The T’s – SCOTLAND, June 2009


“Our indulgent 10 weeks tour of Italy has started perfectly with 2 weeks in Sermoneta – a great base to explore Lazio. Your compendium on the history and areas of interest was indispensable, as were the recommendations on restaurants. We’ve made he move from the fast lane to the slow lane, so have enjoyed lazy mornings, lazy afternoons, smelling the jasmine, enjoying your stories and the sights and sounds of the village. Ciao for now and look us up if you return to Melbourne”
