The apartment is right on the waterfront in a beautiful ancient marina - one of three on the island and the nicest by far. It even has a romantic balcony that looks over the water and is perfect in just about every way. The only minor minor issue I could mention is that the water pressure in the shower is extremely weak. Highly recommend the apartment particularly in february as the area is not overrun by tourists and the marina is really amazingly beautiful.
A few notes:
-Dont take a taxi from marina grande where the ferries come in. Its 10 euros for what is a 5 or 10 minute walk up the hill. The island is really small.
-The only restaurant open in the area when we were there was il postino on the marina. Suprisingly it was recommended by the guy who runs the apartment. It was without doubt the worst and most overpriced meal we had in Italy. Check out the other reviews on it if you have any doubt. A complete tourist trap. Strongly recommend you stay away from it and there are other good restaurants on the island at a fraction of the price..
-There is great food on the rest of the island and you can buy pasta etc. in the alimentari markets 5 minutes up the hill to cook in the nice kitchen in the apartment.
