All one could need for a holiday base. Its 3 floors up with no lift so not suitable for those who struggle with stairs. We would happily stay there again. Its about 100m from the sea front and a bus ride or 15 min walk from Santa Margherita Station.

The drop out of the front door is to be remembered. There was a stair lift being installed when we were there. Anna who let us in was helpful and took us to a parking space where we could leave the car for 3 days for free, and she didn't mind what time we left the apartment which was a bonus. Communication after payment was frustrating but on the day of arrival all went well. The view from the balcony is fab and the location is very central. We didn't find it noisy at all but we weren't there at the weekend. The apartment would benefit from a small table on the balcony, a new mattress on the top bunk bed as it was so sunk we couldn't use it, thankfully we could utilise the sofa bed, also a bit more kitchen equipment would be good. I agree with a previous review about the deposit, we did get ours back one week after our departure but it was a worry. If you plan to do any washing the machine is a top loader and is quite difficult to open, after an extra spin the washing was still dripping wet but maybe we had done something wrong, you hang your washing on a line on the back wall over the street! Recommend a boat trip to Portofino, really stunning. Despite a few minor faults I would recommend this apartment, it's a great spot.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    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.
