We were there for 3 days and in the large 2 bedroom apt. The view is wonderful, and after visiting all the towns, we thought Manarola was the best town to stay in. Not too touristy and beautiful. Some of the other towns are still under construction from the mud slides in the fall.
The apartment was clean, well equipped and the kitchen had what was required so that we could make breakfast and have light dinners, after our large lunches. Which saves money. There was a TV (not sure about wifi) but all the stations are in Italian. Our only complaint was the shower, it had such a small place for your feet. It is meant as a combo tub-shower, but doesn't work well as either. But lots of hot water and good pressure.
Some people complain about steep climbs and steps- my response is if you can't do any climbing, or take a few steps you shouldn't come to Cinque Terre. The whole area is steep and all of the towns are hilly. There are some easier walks, but no matter what, even the easy walks require one to go up hills to get to the walk. CT is gorgeous place and well worth the visit. If you hike, go early, as it gets hot in the day. And you must eat at Trattoria Billy's, a fews steps from the apt. Best meal ever, but you need reservations at night.
