Terrific, met our needs and expectations

  • 4 of 5

The home is clean, pleasantly decorated and very conveniently located close to shops and the beach. No beach view from apartment. No sitting area. But we didn't miss these things due to the ideal location in the middle of the village. It was so easy to get down to the beach or up to a spot overlooking the sea. I was a bit concerned about noise on the street mentioned by a previous guest, but it was no issue for us. Then again October is nearing the end of the high season here. Giovanna is very easy to communicate with in advance and it was easy to make arrangements for arrival. Thank you for having us!

Great apartment to serve as Home base to explore cinque terre

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this Monterosso apartment. The location was very central - close to good restaurants, bakeries and gelato. There were 2 nice size bedrooms with a smaller one that was fine for the kids and a cozy kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the shower has great water pressure, lots of hot water and plenty of towels. Giovanna was lovely and very helpful. There is no WiFi in the room, but I we were able to get connected by getting time from the Internet cafe across the street. The only bummer was we didn’t have WiFi when we couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night. Otherwise a fantastic stay.

Great location, fair price, but lots of street noise all night (Septmeber)

  • 3 of 5

Our host was prompt and all our communication prior and during our stay was good. The plus of this apartment is that we had beds for 5, 2 bathrooms, a spacious (Italian) kitchen, and the location was nice. I was afraid that it would be far away from the waterfront, but everything is a 3 minute walk. There is no sitting area to speak of (one chair next to the kitchen table) so we treated Laura's bakery across the way as our "living room" for morning coffee and afternoon aperitivo. The downside is the street noise. None of us slept well for the 3 nights we were there in September (Saturday-Tuesday). There are a few bar/restaurants in the two squares which the windows open onto, and of course people (tourists and later the locals enjoying themselves after things closed it seemed) pour out onto the streets; add to that the early morning bottle and trash collection is very noisy. I'm not complaining about the noise - that's what you get in a town like this, but next time we'll look for something a little farther up the hill OR if we want to stay here again, we'll come in more of the off season. We've stayed at lots of independent rentals, and sometimes they are well stocked, and sometimes not at all. This place is the later but no worries, there is a small market just down the hill for toilet paper and olive oil (we were all thankful for the little sugar, salt & pepper packets we'd been collecting :) ) Take your bug spray. Monterosso is a wonderful little town! The hike to Vernazza is awesome, the trains easy to navigate, lots of great food and wine. Our favorite restaurant had yellow rope lights and is to the left -facing the water- of the apt, sorry I didn't catch the name but we ate there twice it was so good! IF you need the medical clinic, it is not very easy to find. Look for the pharmacy (green "plus" sign) where they have a sign posted up with a phone number to call. Take a photo of that sign. Down in the main square (old town) to the left as facing the water, look for the door with the same sign. Take your passport. Also note that the ferries don't run if the water is even slightly choppy so check before depending on them. I'll put some of our pictures on my Instagram for villagetocastle after we settle in home.

Wonderful Stay in Monterosso!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of four enjoyed staying in Giovanna's apartment! I it is large and roomy and provided us with all we needed. The location is superb, right in the middle of the historical area which is exactly where we preferred to be! The first day was quite warm and the air conditioning was fabulous but it cooled down over the days and we didn't really need it as much because the apartment stayed cool. With three bedrooms we could all spread out. We spent late evenings together in the kitchen area. The only reason I am not giving five stars is that every morning the glass recycle truck parks outside the building and is very noisy, although that is not Giovanna''s fault or anything to really do with the apartment. I did notice that some other reviews mentioned that. However, once the truck left we were either awake anyway or just went back to sleep! GIovanna was there promptly since we called from a taxi on our way from the train station. She does not speak much English but was able to communicate well with us. I would highly recommend this apartment. It was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect! Thank you, Giovanna!
