“nice spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

The apartment was all that we needed, clean and comfortable. there are quite a few stairs to drag the suitcase, but you have to accept that if you want to stay in the cinque terre. Manuela met us at the train station and was happy to advise on places to eat etc. I think Vernazza was the best of all 5 towns, smaller and less commercialised than some of the others and would be happy to go back for another stay.

Loved the appartment under the castle. It was a perfect set up for our family. One big bed and one small, and our daughter created a 3rd single bed on the floor by piling up some bedding from the well supplied closet. Lovely studio with views of the town harbor! Kitchenette and very nice bathroom. Nice breeze. Quiet. Easy to work with Manuela on what we needed. Challenging hike up many stairs with luggage to get there, but worth it. And we enjoyed our short walks up to Pirata Caffe (top of the village away from harbor) both mornings we were there to enjoy the best breakfast in Italy during our 2 week stay. That's where we got our free WiFi each morning for whatever we needed. Also - the hike from Corniglia down to Vernazza was outstanding! Vernazza and the Cinque Terra was definitely a highlight of our trip.

Of all the reservations I made online for our Italy trip, Manuela took a while to reply to our inquiry. When I did get the reply, the offered price was slightly more than the published rate on her website, and I wrote back to clarify. We managed to agree on the price and reserved the apartment on via Gavino. On the day we arrived, we rang Manuela who met us at the train station and walked us uphill to the apartment. The place is on the 2nd floor, so there are some narrow steps to climb. There's a laundry line but no washing machine facility is available. There are 2 single beds that occupy what would have been a living room, and there is a double bed in the other room. 1 bathroom and a small kitchen with stove and a small fridge. The only problem we had was the mosquitoes in the evening but that was solved as we found some repellent/incense thingy in the apartment. It's very quiet at night, getting our beauty sleep was not a problem at all :)

Back in February I reserved Manuela 2 for 2 nights, June 2nd and 3rd and re-confirmed the reservation a week before arriving. Manuela confirmed our reservation. When we arrived she had her friend take us to the room, problem was it was not the one we reserved. I showed her friend the confirmation with the address but she said she didn’t know where it was. I called Manuela and told her this was not our room, she said there was a problem with the bathroom. Funny, she didn’t mention that when I confirmed the reservation last week or even when we met her earlier the day of arrival. The new room was in a different area of town, was a significant step down in quality and was right above a restaurant kitchen so it was noisy at night. I later learned this was an Italian holiday weekend. My guess is that someone local offered to rent Manuela 2 for more than 2 nights so were out of luck, even though I had confirmed with a credit card. In fairness, Manuela did offer to pay for a continental breakfast worth about $6 euro. This does not compensate for not living up to her room commitment. I do not enjoy writing a bad review but I hope other people don’t have a similar experience.

My daughter, Kathy, and I rented Manuela's 2 bedroom apartment at 22 Via Gavino for 4 nights in September. Manuela met us at the train station and walked us up the hill to the apartment. She took time to explain everything to us and left us with her mobile #. She was very helpful.
The apartment was very clean and exactly as represented in the photos. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. It sets back off the street and was very quiet at night.
Also, we were just steps away from the restaurant, Il Pirata, mentioned in the Trip Advisor restaurant section. We went there every morning for their delicious pastries. We also had a great dinner there. The twins are very entertaining.
Vernazza is darling and is a good base to start your hiking. We were able to hike to Monterrossa al Mare and Corneglia from here. It's an ideal location.
Thanks, Manuela

Although I was a little hesitant to book the room based on the fact that it didn't have any reviews on Trip Advisor at the time, we took at chance based on the photos and the fact that most things in Vernazza seemed to be full or filling fast. Manuela was so nice and the room was great. It was very large and came with a very small kitchenette and clothesline, which was perfect for us since it was mid-trip and definitely time to do some laundry. There were definitely stairs to climb to get to this room, but not nearly as many as other places and if you don't like stairs, you shouldn't be going to the Cinque Terre! It wasn't far from the train, but the train did not keep us up at night, so I wouldn't consider it an issue.

We stayed at Manuela's apartment that had 2 bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, and a bath which included a hairdryer and shampoo. It was clean and well decorated. There were alarm clocks, extra blankets, towels, and averything we needed for a comfortable stay. We did not have an ocean view but we had few steps to climb and were located in a quiet area tucked away against the hillside. The apartment was as charming as Manuela. She speaks English which was a plus for us. In addition, she was kind and helpful. You won't regret staying in her accomodations. Her rooms are reasonable and as charming as the pictures shown on the website.
