My wife, two sons and I stayed in this house in June, 2012. In the weeks leading up to our stay the owner, Giacomo, was very accesible and helpful via emails. He asked us to let him know approximately when we'd be arriving on the train so that he could be there and ready to help us with our bags, if necessary. When we needed him during our stay, he was very responsive and helpful.
The house was stocked with everything we needed and featured two bedrooms. The largest had a king bed and the other had two twins and a balcony which overlooked the main pedestrian street. The living room was on the small side but, in a town like Riomaggiore, who wants to stay in? Kitchen was well stocked and even had a table to seat four. Good sized bathroom by European standards and washing machine was very handy.
Location was great as the town was literally at our doorstep. Nice restaurants and markets. The beach is rocky but the water is unbelievable! Be sure to hike the trails between the five towns of Cinque Terre for great excersize and an experience you won't forget.
We've done quite a bit of travelling and have stayed in everything from hostels to B&B's to apartments. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone. Also, please note that Giacomo also rents a house in the next town, Manarola.
