Big apartment, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Barbara's apartment was excellent! Barbara met us upon arrival and was very available during our stay via phone and text. The apartment is located on the main street however, it was far enough up the hill that it was not loud and busy. It was clean and nicely decorated.The location is fantastic. There is a grocery very nearby (less than 1 minute to walk there). The walk from the train station was easy. I was concerned about the distance and the "hill" with three young kids walking with luggage, but it was a breeze! The apartment was very spacious and had two bathrooms which was so nice with our family of five! The balcony was nice as well. Everything we needed was available in the apartment. There are great places to eat everywhere and little shops all along the street. Monterosso is a great town to explore! We would stay here again!

Fantastic location in old town Monterosso

  • 4 of 5

Barbara's apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures. We had two couples staying in the unit with the Arch way. The stairs up to the door have a higher than normal rise which gave us a workout but that is very normal in this and other areas of Europe we discovered. It was very spacious and clean with the charm of an old town building. Laundry was also hanging out when we arrived but we didn't have an issue with it as it was clear it hadn't dried yet. We did laundry as well during our stay and with it being a humid climate drying simply takes some time. Honestly it added to the charm of the place. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen offered everything needed with the exception of a spatula and the sink plug requires replacing. It would have been nice to have a garbage in each bathroom just for convenience sake (the only one is in the kitchen). These are very minor items and surely didn't effect our stay negatively. The only issue we had with our stay was that none of the seaside paths were open which would have been nice to know in advance. We purchased the rail and pathway pass for 2 days (available at the railway station) and they failed to mention this at time of purchase which was dissappointing. The area itself is truly beautiful and worth the visit but be prepared for VERY steep walks within the towns.

If you arrive by car there is parking available for about 18 Euro per day, public is available as well but involved about a 20 minute walk straight up hill to reach the vehicle. (Recommend dropping and picking up luggage at the bottom area just to the right of the parkade-the apartment is a very short walk down hill from this point)

Barbara met us at the property after we arrived and was very pleasant and answered the questions we had about the area in person.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Barbara, thank you for your hopitality. We included a couple recommendations above and would also add that wifi would be a big selling feature that you may want to consider. I would definitely recommend your property to friends!

We were two couples travelling throughout Italy for a month. This was our 9th stop and the most disappointing to date. There was no outside door of the apt building - anyone could have walked up to the apartment door. One bedroom had no night tables and lamps. One bathroom was not in great shape. We did have a balcony but when we arrived laundry was still hanging on the lines from the balcony. Seemed odd. I emailed Barbara and her kind mother came over and removed. Also, we asked for two keys. No such luck. We did not meet Barbara. There was no information - maps, schedules etc of the area for us to look at. We would certainly not rent this apt. again and would not recommend it to friend or relative.

Owner's Response: I'm really sorry, disappointed and surprised about the first bad review I have ever had(for all my reviews look at ) also because the guests seemed to be very happy about the apartment They only seemed to be afraid about the fresh laundry hanging on the lines but it was a wet day so it hadn't dried yet when they arrived I sent my mother to take it away but when she arrived they told her it wasn't necessary and seemed to be happy about the apartment. Probably there was a misunderstanding about the key because, if asked, we normally provide a second key. The building is a typical Ligurian ancient building from the Middle Ages where it is not possible to add an outside door but in such a quiet village as Monterosso it has never been a problem to have "just" a solid door to the apartment and no building door. As you can see from the fotos one of the two bedrooms has no bedside tables because I preferred using the place differently and leave an easy access to the bathroom door. I'm sorry I couldn't allow the guests to stay longer the checking out day but I had other people coming and needed to clean the apartment. I hope it was not this the thing that irritate them.

Great apartment in the heart of Old Town Monterosso!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Monterosso at Barbara's charming apartment on the main street of the historical center of the town. The location is perfect, and we loved having a balcony overlooking the action! The apartment is plenty roomy and it was so nice to have 2 full baths, which is sometimes hard to find. Barbara's delightful mother met us at the apartment and was so sweet! Barbara is very nice as well and was very responsive to any questions we had. I highly recommend this apartment!!

The nature of the 5 lands offers beautiful scenery that can be seen along the path CAI n. 2 along the sea and leads to the Five towns and their beaches or you can go off-beat and known that there is no lack of leading us towards breathtaking scenery.
