My family of 6 and I had a wonderful stay at Il Boma in July 2014. Maddy is a lovely host, providing helpful information. We stayed in all 3 rooms. 2 of the rooms were spacious and had air conditioning. The third room was smaller, but Maddy had been upfront about that when we made our reservation and it worked... More

We had a fantastic experience at Il Boma! We knew we had picked the right place to stay from the first email we received from Maddy. She provided information about Cinque Terre that one just cannot find online. Maddy is very attentive, a great host who made us feel at home with the convenience of our own privacy. We slept... More

My husband and I stayed at Il Boma in June 2014 for 4 days of our 2 week honeymoon. Leading up to the trip, Maddie was extremely helpful in sending/responding to emails answering my questions, giving directions, and sending ideas of things to do when we arrived. Walking from the train, was quick and easy as Il Boma is only... More

This is a great place to stay. Good value for the area and very comfortable room. Wi-fi was strong, room was spotless and cleaned everyday. I could not think of anything that would have made this a better stay...will be back!

Thank you Maddy for the wonderful stay. She is very kind and helpful and always reach out to help her clients. We had an early train on the day we checked out and instead of baking the croissants that she always does (yummy!), she baked a pound cake for us so we can eat it on the train. So thoughtful... More

Right in the middle of the action in this great little action town. Some stairs to climb, but the end result is worth it. The room is spotless, quite large, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom is well above average for Italy. The refrigerator is stocked daily, and the fresh croissants everyone else has mentioned are as good as they... More

What a great B&B with a great host Maddy. Our room was perfect and cleaned spotless every morning. We loved the espresso machine in our room which complimented the fresh, warm croissants in the morning. Best we have ever had! We even got given a departure gift of homemade limoncello. Perfect location + personal touch = a highlighted destination forsure.... More
