Charming and scenic cottage

The cottage was quaint and comfortable. It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The location and view were fantastic. We highly recommend this fabulous cottage in Monterosso.

Wonderful home base for Cinque Terre!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandra was an amazing host, and really made my three friends and I feel at home in Monterosso! This homeaway has incredible views, is very close to the center of town, and is incredibly comfortable. Thank you for such a wonderful stay and an amazing home base to make memories!

Great location, rocky experience

  • 2 of 5

Monterosso is gorgeous! I absolutely love the town, restaurants and people. The beach is gorgeous and the hikes are amazing with breathtaking views.

The house itself is good. It is spacious, clean, a great view, and equipped with a washing machine. I appreciated the locked gate with security lighting.

My biggest concern was the communication with the owner. Alessandra is very demanding of payment prior to the due dates. She speaks very good English through email, but pretend not to know English when there is conflict.

She greeted us when we arrived on time and went over instructions of using the house. Before she left us she asks us to leave by 10:00 AM for checkout because she has cleaners coming. At the rate we paid, I expect to not depart until 11:00 AM which is normal checkout procedure. We paid a costly cleaning service, yet we were expected to clean the dishes, take out the trash, pull the bedding off.

The day we were supposed to check out she arrives at the residence while we were still sleeping. It was very unprofessional. I have a much better experience with 3 of the home rentals that I used during my holiday in Italy.

Overall, I wouldn't stay here again.

Owner's Response: 1) I didn't request a payment prior to the arrival. However such an automated request is generated by way of the booking site. And in turn, I sent an email to clarify that payment could be made in full upon arrival, and if the payment was made via PayPay then the fees would be for them to cover. Unfortunately the payment was already made, and to reclarify it wasn't my request, for which there was a €28,47 that l paid and didn't ask again for. 2) My English is not very good; it's basic. It's easier for me to write and read than to speak English, especially if the other person speaks very fast. I don't pretend to be' fluent in English, unfortunately I am not. There was never any "conflict" between us. 3) Upon arrival I explained that on their departure day they would have to leave the house by 10:30 a.m. With a same-day turnover the property had to be prepared. They informed me that they would have to leave in the late afternoon. l told the guests it would be fine for them to leave their luggage and they could return to pick them up before their departure. Then, that same evening, l recalled the new luggage storage service being offered by the Tourist Office just under the train station. l wrote an email to inform them of this option, since logistically it seemed like a better optionfor them in order to avoid going back and forth up the hill to the house. l didn't receive a response to my email and so, the morning of their departure, since l had not seen or heard from the guests, l stopped by the house at 9:30 a.m. l rang the bell to remind them that at 10:30 a.m. the cleaner would arrive to begin the turnover for guests arriving the same day. At 10:30 a.m. the cleaner didn't find the guests at the house and l had to send the security deposit back via PayPal. My house rules clearly state that check-out is by 10.30 a.m. lf else where ceck-out is done at later hours it doesn't concern me or my property. The guests should have read the house roules more carefully before accusing me of not being professional. 4) lt's a basic and common practice that when you leave a rental property, even when a cleaning fee is involved, for guests to not leave dirty dishes (the house has a dishwasher) and to have their trash taken out. The guests didn't leave both. The cleaning fee serves to have the property clean for the arrival of the guests, which is what they wrote to have found. Alessandra

Cinque Terre in the Fall

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the charming place with another couple. We flipped a coin for the bedroom, and it worked out just fine. This place has everything you need, including peace and quiet. On our last night we ordered take out pizza, and enjoy a nice bottle of local wine. Our hostess met us at the train when we arrived, and arranged for taxi to take us to place. She was so helpful in giving us the list of places to eat, etc. This place was fine for two couples, and would be great for a family of four. The yard has a pleasant view of the ocean. I would highly recommend.

You will love this place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited Cinque Terre in May 2016. I was a bit nervous traveling in Italy for the first time. Staying in this beautiful beach home with our gracious host made such a difference. She met us at the train station, paid the taxi to take us to our home. Gave us useful information. The home is so charming and has everything you need. It looks just like the pictures. Out of the 4 properties we syayed at in our travels this was by far the best! Alessandra thank you for everything. I hope I see you again some day!

4 night stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fine visit at Alessandra's lovely flat in Monterroso. We had a rental car, so her private parking place immediately across from the apartment worked well. My wife's bad knee was challenged by walking the stair steps into town and back, but I could jitney her down (very short by car) then take her back up when our outing was over. All that exercise caused me to lose a few pounds, despite eating very well. Do not miss the Restaurant Miky!

Alessandra's place is well buffered from the sounds of passing trains, which zip by in a right-of-way about 25 meters wide; it is sunken, so as to buffer sight and sound. Don't book anyplace in the CT until you find out its proximity to the rail lines.

Two items totally out of the host and visitors' control. The boats that carry visitors to the other three "Terre" that are on the water cannot dock whe the sea is up. Use the info in the apt to

We had a great time and really enjoyed our interactions with Alessandra. She's a fine host!
