Amazing, comfortable home - Cinque Terre a simple train ride away!
We are in a car so finding a place we could park nearby, without cost was important, Miriam was there to meet us when we arrived and helped us unpack and park the car away for the next three days. Rapallo is a bustling, fun city and we walked everywhere. Great restaurants. Easy access to the train which was important for us, since we wanted to go Cinque Terre.
This home is a perfect layout and location. Yes, the train is right outside your windows but once the dual glaze windows are closed, they are a faint and comforting background noise. When you look around inside, every thing you could want is here. Coffee pots, kettle, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine (I even hung some clothes outside to dry on the clothes line). Sleeping at one end of the house, living room and comfortable "kitchen table" at the other end.
The elevator although small was great for taking our suitcases (x3 people) up to the 4th floor.
Thanks you again for the great stay. If I could give a 6 star review, this would be it!
We really enjoyed our stay in this charming apartment. Don't be alarmed by the facade of the apartment building. The apartment itself is beautifully done and the pictures in the homeaway website didn't do justice to the place! Miriam, you probably want to update the pictures to show how lovely your place is :) We are family of 4 (parents and 2 teenager children) and the apartment is big enough for all of us not to step on each other during our stay. The location of the apartment is great. 5 minutes walk to the charming Rapallo town center and 5 minutes walk to the train station. The alleys leading toward water front are so charming with white umbrellas hanging above you on some alleys while other alleys had big colorful pinwheels hanging above you. Few minutes walk from the apartment is the best fresh pasta store (Pasta La Casana) that we had had in our 3 weeks stay in Italy. We would stop by in the morning to pick up few servings of fresh made pasta and sauce (their tomato sauce is out of this world) and after a day of outing, it only takes 5 minutes to put a delicious dinner on the table. And it is more delicious than most of the restaurants we had eaten. Miriam , the host, went above and beyond in providing the comfort for our stay. Upon arrival, she has a big bag of cookies, coffee, water, ice tea waiting for us. The time we live there, it truly feel like living as local, including hanging our laundry out on balcony. The apartment is next to the train track but it only took few hours for us to get used to the train noise and it doesn't bother us much afterward. The parking can be challenging if you bring a car with you. So be sure to let the host know ahead of the time so they can help with parking spot as they did for us which is greatly appreciated. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.
Great holiday in an excellent apartment
A large apartment, with living room (with TV and DVD), kitchen diner (well-equipped for catering), two bathrooms, two bedrooms (double and twin), a long corridor and lots of storage space. It's on the third floor, with a lift. It's a short walk from the station, and overlooks the train tracks, which our 5-year old loved, running to watch every train run past. The trains are not too frequent and don't run at night, so the noise wasn't a problem for us. There are lots of shops and bakeries nearby. The owner Miriam met us at the station, and was very helpful. It was a particularly nice touch that there were lots of useful things in the cupboards and fridge, including water, salt, sugar, herbs, coffee, tea, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, etc. We didn't use the free parking space, since the train and boats are the best way to get around the area.
A Spacious & Homely Apartment
It was one of the best I have ever stayed in. There was so much room with two good sized bedrooms a dining area, kitchen, lounge and two shower rooms. All were immaculately maintanied and so well equipt. Fortunately there was a lift to the third floor and good security throughout the building. It is true the view of the railway was not to everyone's taste but the soundproofing of the windows cut out most of the train noise - it was not a problem for us.
The apartment was situated within 10 minutes walk of the town centre, the railway & bus station and the Rapallo beaches. There were local supermarkets at hand as well as butchers and bakers.
Our hosts were very welcoming, even met us on the station platform to help with carrying our luggage. They gave us a detailed tour of the apartment and covered the use of all the facilities in excellent fashion. I would heartily recommend this apartment for all potential renters
Great apartment in a fantastic location in the centre of Rapallo
Miriam & Rita are great hosts and were at the end of a message at any time should you need them. We stayed for 9 nights and the apartment had everything we needed and more for our stay. It is well presented and the artwork and attention to detail was obvious. The sofa bed in the lounge was used and was very comfortable. The train track is right next to the apartment and the trains go past very regularly during the day but only a few at night, this didn’t bother us at all and once the windows and blinds are closed you hardly hear them. The location is fantastic and is a 5-10 min walk to the promenade depending on how quick you walk. Here you can get the local ferry to portofino and San Frutuoso which we did twice. Nearest airport is Genoa, we used a local taxi guy who is called Carlo Risso and his telephone number is 0039 335 8438531, his prices are very reasonable. We will use him again, he was on time both ways.
Rapallo apartment / great location
Apartment was good value for money / Miriam and her helpers were invaluable / would recommend to fellow travellers
The central location is ideal for Those Who prefer to make use of public transport. The railway station and the buses are few minutes' walk away. It is a convenient starting point for excursions to the Cinque Terre, Portofino and the Mont National Park of Portofino, Santa Margherita, Camogli and Genoa, a city with a magnificent historic center, important museums and a fantastic aquarium. The whole area around Rapallo is full of scenic walks along the beautiful hills overlooking the sea.
