“cozy spot, great location”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Giacomo and Maria welcomed us to Vernazza as we descended from the train looking lost. The charming room was perfect for us! Cozy and clean, right on the harbor. No stairs, which was a plus after hiking each day and climbing hundreds of stairs. There is a small table and a fridge which is handy for snacks and wine. We loved this special spot and felt lucky to have been able to stay there.highly recommend!

Vernazza is a beautiful, beautiful town right on the water. We stayed in Maria and Giacomo's Cozy Room above the Piazza. Note that it does not have windows on the the Piazza but has a few windows opening out onto alley ways.

The Cozy Room is "cozy" (I.e on the smaller side). Comfortable big bed (with single bed in room as well). The kitchen is a good size with breakfast table and mid size refrigerator but you cannot cook in the kitchen (no oven or cooktop). The bathroom is small but adequate. Good heating systems as well.

The only real drawback here are the number of stairs (approx. 50) up to the Cozy Room. The last 20 stairs are a little steeper. Giacomo met us and kindly helped with the bags. They were very helpful and considerate hosts. Thank you both

Room Tip: If you pack light and/ or are visiting for just a few days then the Cozy Room is just fine. For youn...

We loved our stay in Vernazza, and it was made all the more special by the wonderful welcome of Giacomo and Maria. They are such warm and friendly people - we felt like long lost family!

The charming room feels like you're staying at your Nonna's house. It's spotlessly clean with traditional decor. The bathroom is a good size and you even have a little kitchenette area with a kettle, cups, glasses and cutlery.

Open the window and you have a stunning view over the lovely harbour. Early mornings are magic here - just the time to sit outside with a cuppa and talk to the passing locals. Everyone is very friendly and they love to help you practice your Italian.

Our only regret was that we should have booked for longer! We were sad to leave and plan to return one day soon.

Room Tip: The Charming Room is the best!

We really liked Vernazza and this room (actually, a main room, plus a kitchen and a bathroom) right on the harbor. Giacomo met us, and he was very helpful and gracious - a delightful man. No stairs - a great benefit, and not so easy to find in a town where the buildings tumble down the hills. Only negative - it smelled moldy upon entering. As with all odors, it quickly ceased to be a problem - one stops being aware of it. But if you're sensitive to mold, think twice. It hit us every time we entered. Otherwise, a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: There is only one room in the building, though we believe Maria has other rooms on the harbor.

We stayed in the Charming room April 14-17 (4 evenings). The location is fantastic! It is right in the harbor area which means NO stairs to carry your bags. Because of our early in spring visit it would get cool in the evening but the room has a heater although we did not need it. The room has everything and more that you would need for your stay. It was GREAT!!

Stayed here at the end of September 2013 - bit slow with reviews!
Giacomo and Maria are very welcoming, meet us off the train, and check each day that you are happy and not needing anything. And we would meet them out in the square sometimes and have a chat and feel like locals!
The apartment is compact, comfortable, secure and superbly positioned - tho can be a bit noisy at night - but a pleasant buzz of people enjoying themselves
It is right down on the main path to the harbour and in the morning we'd take chairs outside and sit with our cup of tea and watch this beautiful little village come to life.
Right next to a Gelato shop too.
Lots of good restaurants in Vernazza, easy access to train, walking paths and boats.
My favourite of the villages -stayed here 8 years ago in room just above this one.
Have never stayed up higher as not keen on climbing 100 steps tho I'm sure the views would be great.
We love feeling like we are part of this place for a few days.
And would recommend Maria's room every time.

Every have the urge to completely immerse yourself in the Italian lifestyle? Have an experience of a lifetime in a small unspoiled Italian village, living the same way and in the same building with the locals? The Cozy Apartment will give you all that and more. Just on the corner of the Piazza Marconi, up a few stairs lies just such an opportunity.

Vernazza has come so far from the devastating floods of 2011 and now offers the same wonderful atmosphere and peacefulness it did before. Maria and Giacomo are the most gracious and beautiful couple imaginable. They will make your stay even more memorable and you will leave with new friends for life. The Cozy Apartment was very clean and well appointed, with a comfortable double bed and equally comfortable single. The bath has plenty of water pressure and we never ran out of hot water. Nice towels, clean floor and shower, obviously well cared for and managed. We also found everything we needed in the kitchen during our stay. All in all a terrific experience. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Capellini for a wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: The Capellini's also have a room just off the Piazza, which has no stairs to negotiate, called t...
