LEASING A HOME IN THE GAETA AREA
Leasing a residence in the Gaeta area is accomplished through the Housing Office located on the pier in Building 752. The Housing Office has many listings of places for lease in various locations in the area.
There are apartments and town houses in the city, plus villas in more rural settings. The average Italian home is smaller than homes in the U.S. Typically a large sectional sofa will not fit in an Italian apartment living room. There are homes in surrounding towns such as Formia, Scauri and Minturno which can offer larger homes that will fit your U.S. furniture.
How much money is required for a lease?
First & Last Month’s rent—in cash. A refundable security deposit must also be paid prior to move-in date. Contact your bank to raise your debit card limit to get cash from the ATM at the base gym. It is common for members to take a couple of days and trips to get all of the required money. Remember that upfront costs will be paid in Euro.
Utilities/Recurring Maintenance (URM) is included in OHA. It is used to help defray the cost of utilities. Electricity and city gas are billed every other month. For more information visit this site.
There are two systems for residential gas service: LPG tanks (Bombola) and City Gas (Metano). Members who require bombola gas as per their lease agreement, may purchase Bombola Gas Coupons and schedule deliveries from the NEX. Members who require Metano will pay as per their lease agreement. The Housing office will assist you during the lease agreement process.
Housing will help you arrange electric service through ENEL, the electric company. The electrical service system in Italy is 220-volt, 50 cycle vice the U.S. standard 110-volt, 60 cycle. You will need a transformer or converter to use your 110v appliances and electronics. Check the electrical information label prior to plugging in items. Housing will provide two transformers. You must buy the rest.
Hint: It is common to see household items like transformers, extension cords and converters for sale in online marketplaces and garage sales on NSA Naples.
