About the property

The apartment is in a 3-storey villa (stile Liberty), it has been recently renovated.

It is located on a quiet and beautiful street in the new part of the village, near Gigante and the most beautiful beaches in Monterosso (1-2 minutes walk), close to nice restaurants and bars.

It is a 10-15 minute walk from the old part of the village.

The house is very big and bright and very cool in the summer.

It has a large kitchen and a large living room, one big bathroom and three big and confortable bedrooms (two double and one single)

It has three terraces, the view from the house is very nice; one side on the mountain and from one room you can see the sea.

The train station is near the Villa so it is very convenient and in this case, (unlike many homes in Monterosso) does not give any trouble because all the bedrooms are in the opposite direction,and are all very silent.

All the people who have lived this house have always been very happy.

Fantastic location - close to station, beach and restaurants! Very comfortable and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic few days in Monterosso! Walking distance to everything! Beautifully furnished and very inviting! Enough space for our family of six adults to be very comfortable. Owner very responsive and communicated promptly during the booking stage and during our stay. On site accommodation contact was extremely helpful, welcoming and attended to all our needs and was able to answer all our questions about the region. Highly recommend!!

Old Mediterranean charm, comfortable and easy access

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 nights at Maria's property and had a lovely time.

1- the communication between Maria and I before arrival was great

2- Lati, the property caretaker, lives on site, She was super nice, attentive and willing to help with anything. She is just a gem. Thank you Lati, we miss you.

3- the property is as described and as pictured in the photos. The best asset of this property is its location. It can be reached by car, by foot from the train station with no steps or uphill ( except of course the steps at the train station and a few steps into the house which is nothing for cinque terre). It's a super easy 5 to 6 minutes walk from the train station. The beach is very convenient, at the end of the street and convenient stores at proximity.

4- The house reminded me of the house I grew up in, old Mediterranean home, high ceilings, tall windows, large rooms. The house had lots of character, plenty of closets and was very well equipped. The kitchen is very well stocked and the washing machine a very big asset.

5- the bathroom was very well thought out, Lots of storage for your toiletries and plenty of hooks for towels. Bath towels and hand towels were provided as well as beach towels and the best hair dryer ever ( didn't have to use mine)!!!

The bathtub/shower is awkward and in need of update. It has a very old shower head in the wall with almost no water pressure (maybe all it needs is a new shower head) but it does also have a handheld shower head and it worked fine so we managed.

6- it's a nice property with nice views of the mountains and with a good location. I would have loved to have some outside seating on the balcony ( we had breakfast there everyday) and Maria if I may suggest, you have a very large garden with so many fruit trees. It would be wonderful if it were cleaned up with a seating area or a hammock, for an outdoor relaxation area. That's what the house was lacking, an outdoor area.

7- For those who mentioned the train, yes it is super close to the property (just a few meters) but it really isn't a problem.The train runs pretty smoothly and the house doesn't shake. You barely notice it unless you want to be picky.

8- Would I stay again? Most definitely!!this place would be great for a family because of its proximity to the beach.if you are looking for a cinque terre view of the sea, modern amenities and don't mind walking up steps than you need to look elsewhere.Thank you Maria and thank you Lati for the wonderful hospitality!

Owner's Response: It is very important to specify that In the payment is included cleaning and linen as it is clearly written in the site before booking and as everyone can see, so it is incomprehensible any kind of dissatisfaction about this. All the people who were hosted have always been very happy about the house, the location, also about the kindness and attention to all their needs, how is written in many review. The house is very beautifull and always very clean and well kept and so many things in the house are new, walls, windows, bedrooms; some furniture is old fashion but very well kept. Next year, all things and the overused furniture, as always, will be renovated and changed. For us it is very important that people staying in the house are happy and for this reason are always treated with care and attention, giving them the best; and we would like it to be appreciated. Best regards

Spacious Taste of Italy

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had the privilege of staying at this property for just over a week and it was wonderful. Our initial reaction walking in ... was WOW ... Very spacious and comfortable

The property is a great location in Monterosso and close to the train station, beach, stores and restaurants .

The property was well appointed and clean and reflects the pictures shown on the web site.

A wonderful place to stay to explore the Cinque Terre area

The best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property in Monterosso was a perfect rental for our family of six. The location was great and the accommodations lovely. Very clean and comfortable.

Maria meet us on our arrival and gave us a quick overview of the apartment and the area. She also introduced us to Lati, who cleans and sort of manages the apartment for Maria. Lati was also wonderful and always helpful if our family needed anything.

The house is close to everything we needed. The beach, the village, restaurants, the train station, shopping, etc. We could hike trails to other villages in the morning, take the boat back to Monterosso and enjoy the beach for the afternoon. It was everything we hoped for and more.

If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Italy we would go to Monterosso again and rent Maria's property.

Best vacation ever!

Spacious and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This flat in Monterosso is the whole second floor of a nice house about a five minute walk to the beach and ten minute walk to the train station. Our family of five had plenty of room in this clean, bright flat. No air conditioning but we didn't need it with the windows open and a cool breeze blowing the whole time. Maria, the home owner, was very good about communicating with us and provided all of the information we needed before we left on our trip. When we arrived we met Lati, who lives upstairs and manages the flat on Maria's behalf. She showed us around the flat and suggested restaurants and hikes. The flat has a clothes washer so we caught up on laundry. We enjoyed our stay there. There were some issues that we discovered but might not be issues for you.

1. The owner requires a bank transfer as a deposit, the balance in cash and a cash deposit upon checking in. This is all clearly outlined in the property description. However, It cost me a $60 USD fee from my bank to do the international wire transfer. Also, make sure you have the cash before you arrive in Monterosso because the ATM in the train station never had cash in it the whole time we were there, and the next closest machines are in Old Town, which is 20-25 minute walk. (Just my bias because I prefer not to carry that much cash).

2. The house is right next to the train tracks so definitely pack earplugs

3. The shower has no water pressure so you barely get wet

4. The living room couches and chairs were very uncomfortable and sagged to the floor. We didn't spend much time inside but we did watch some of the Eurocup on TV at the house.

Overall this is a nice flat in a beautiful part of the world. Don't miss a visit to Buranco Winery--walking distance from Old Town. We went there on a rainy day and even our teenage boys enjoyed it. We hiked to Vernaza, watched Italy beat Belgium in a cafe with 100 of our new friends, and hung out at the beach. Great vacation.

Owner's Response: I like to specify all this, that can be usefull for any people want to come in this house: 1) first tenants were paying by bank transfer and in any case there have never been any problems. Now to make all happier, tenants pay directly through homeaway. Also, the old town is only a 15 minute and is very nice walk. 2) the railway line passes through the whole village (old and new) and is very difficult to find a house that is away from the railway line and convenient to reach and close enough to the sea in Monterosso, as I always say before taking any reservation,; but in this case, the house has very wide walls, new windows and rooms away from railway line, so everybody sleep very well without problems; In fact, no one has ever complained. 3) About the shower pressure, sometimes in the village there is less water, is just necessary to turn a knob to let out more water; for any kind of problem there is always someone available, it is just necessary to ask to this person or send me a message and everything would be easily solved. 4) in the living room the chair around the table are very confortable and high, there is just some sofas that are not very high and maybe for some one may be uncomfortable, I shall change them. Thank you for your feedback. Best regards
