The owner Elisabetta has at least two different apartments, the one described in the other reviews and one in which we stayed one night, which I am describing here. The one we stayed at was a one bedroom affair, bedroom/bath on first level, spiral staircase leading up to second level containing kitchen/dining area w/ refrigerator, with door leading out to a outdoor area dominated by a fig tree, and steps leading up to a terrace with table, flower boxes, and some views. Everything was working fine including wi-fi; kitchen well-enough equipped to do your own meals if you want (we did a proper hot breakfast there). In September the tree had ripe figs on it which we were shaking off and eating (there was a net to catch them); this was the best little extra benefit of this place!
We booked at the last minute and couldn't stay in any one place more than one night in a row in 5 Terre; we left this apartment and moved across the street into the "Casa Orietta" (different owner) whose entrance door was literally about two steps across the alley from the entrance to this place (easy to move our stuff). Seems like at least half the apartments in Corniglia are let out to visitors. BTW Casa Orietta is more spacious, comfortable and nicer than here at about the same price, but Azzurra had the outdoor areas which were very nice, and Casa Orietta either didn't have wi-fi, or it wasn't working (I don't remember which, and Azzurra's wi-fi didn't QUITE reach across the alley)!
Corniglia was our favorite stop in Cinque Terre.
