                                                                                                      The apartment is clean, somewhat minimally furnished, and reasonably spacious for 2 or 4 people. The two shower rooms are an excellent feature. The air conditioning is very efficient and the T.V./stereo systems are good quality. The outside patio is spacious, reasonably private and excellent for eating out and a BBQ with plenty of outside furniture. The kitchen is quite well equipped although a microwave oven would be a very useful addition. One disadvantage of the apartment is the fact that being a lower ground floor apartment there are two flights of stairs to descend from the entrance lobby which is itself up one flight of steps from the street. This is no problem for fit adults but may be a disadvantage for more elderly people with luggage or shopping and mothers with push chairs. The huge advantage of the apartment is its location just a few metres from the main shopping area but still in a lovely quiet residential street. The sea front with beaches, promenade ,ferry terminal, information office,bus stops and restaurants is only 200 metres away and the train station is only a short walk away also. There is no need to have a car to get around. Santa Margherita itself is delighful ,quite the best resort in the area and there are many places of interest to visit using all of the transport facilties available. All in all the apartment and Santa Margherita offer an ideal holiday experience.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The spacious and modern apartment has been recently renovated. Kitchen, dining room and living room make up an open space with a large balcony to the sea side front with a wonderful view. The living room can be separated by sliding doors and used as a bedroom (using the sofa bed). In the back part of the apartment is the main bedroom, a second smaller bedroom with a bunk bed and the bathroom. Be aware that the staircase to the apartment is quite steep. Moreover it was under construction during our stay. The kitchen is well equipped with a dish washer and a full-fledged stove. When it comes to tableware and the like, the kitchen could need a bit more of equipment. It still seems to be in a building up process. We received several new things like bowls and cutlery during our stay. And it's really worth cooking for yourself there because there are so many shops nearby selling fruits, vegetables, ham, cheese, home made pasta and other delicious things. In general when it comes to the equipment, the apartment was well-appointed in some aspects (there was salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, cleansing material and the like) but there could be a bit more of several other things (e.g. more towels, sufficient toilet paper). The apartment is located in a very central part of the city: the boardwalk is on the front side and a pedestrian area with restaurants and bars on the back side. You can reach everything (bus stop, beach, train station etc.) within a few minutes of walking. Admittedly parking nearby is difficult. Because of the central location the apartment is not the most quiet place; but we had no problems to sleep at night. The only thing which was really annoying, were the "open air concerts" of some third-class crooners every two or three days nearby (lasting past midnight). In general it's a quite pleasing apartment which we can recommend.

We were free to use everything in the house, replacing items if we ran out. The beds were very comfortable and a good size. I loved the garden with lots of sun and shade. One comment:- our son was very warm in the smaller bedroom. A ceiling fan would have been vey welcome. A lovely, lovely holiday.
