Unbelievably friendly and warm staff who gladly gave expert travel advice and recommendations that only a Roman would normally be privy to. - Loic Diels
I LOVE this website and will gladly recommend it to anyone headed this way. Nothing disappointed us! - Mary-Iris Taylor
I have been using Cross-Pollinate for about 10 years now. The service is consistently great and I can always find just the kind of apartment we like, at the right price. - Hirani Himona
A really great idea - with a network of hand picked little rooms/guesthouses. If only we could have this in more city destinations! - Zoe Buck
I love Cross-Pollinate and every time we go to a new city I look to see whether they have some accommodations over there. - Arantza Aldea
The two places I have stayed at from Cross-Pollinate have been among the best across Europe. Highly recommended. - Nicholas Burn
Thanks a lot to Cross-Pollinate for the opportunity to experience a city as an insider! We really enjoyed our stay in Rome and Venice and look forward to more. - Tatiana Marchenko
Cross-Pollinate was very helpful when the owner of the B&B wanted to charge us for the baby under 2 y o. It would have been difficult without them since the owners did not speak any english. - Yulia Pichugina
This was our only stay with a C-P apartment and we were very pleased with the entire process. Will look to use them again on our next Europe trip! - Anthony Giglio
Great web site and quick response from the team a CP made the whole experience easy and hassle free. I have already recommended CP to quite of few of my airline industry colleagues and I'm sure they will make use of their excellent service. - Shane Pickles
Cross-Pollinate was extremely helpful! They found us a place to stay in our price range when many other places of business couldn't help us. - Sarah Seminutin
Cross-Pollinate was very easy to use, and it is so much better to stay in places like these than big corporate hotels; you get a much better feel for the place. - Kaspar Deane
Very straight forward. Well done. Definitely would use it again. Love these type of alternatives to hotels! - John White
Cross-Pollinate was fantastic and easy to use. We used Cross-Pollinate to book a room in Florence (the second leg of our trip), which was everything I thought it would be. We have recommended Cross-Pollinate to our friends. - Barbara Carlin
Cross-Pollinate are great - the descriptions are accurate and they are very responsive to questions. - Dominique Bayne
Cross Pollinate was just the best. I had tried a couple of places before coming upon them. As soon as I sent the first email I stopped looking for any more websites. I just wish they expanded to every city in Europe. Their knowledge, helpfulness, etc. was second to none. - Caroline Collis
Casa delle Rose Apartment
Casa delle Rose Apartment is owned by the same people who own the B&B of the same name, which is located right next door. The owners also live next door, so they are available to do check-ins at any time and on hand in case you have any problems or questions.

They recently started renting this 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment. The highlight is the private garden and deck, since it's on the ground floor, where guests can sit outside to have meals, relax, and enjoy the shade of the peach and apple trees. The apartment itself is comfortable and welcoming, with 2 bedrooms that each have a queen-sized bed, and a third queen-sized sofabed in the living room, so it's perfect for a family or couples who are good friends. The newly remodelled bathroom is also a highlight: it has a large jacuzzi bathtub, as well as an extra-wide shower. There's also a fully stocked kitchen, so guests wishing to save money can cook in. Other amenities include washing machine, WiFi, cable TV, and a parking spot on request (this has an extra fee of 10 euros per night).

It's located in the center of Lido island, a 15-minute boat ride from the Venice mainland. Lido is an interesting area to stay in, as it's off the tourist path but still close enough to get easily to the center of Venice at almost any time of day. It's a residential area, so there are plenty of restaurants, shops, coffee bars, and more in the neighborhood. It's a perfect spot if you want to enjoy Venice by day, then get back to Lido in 15 minutes and take a refreshing swim in the sea and relax on the sandy beach.
