My husband and I stayed here for two nights and I wish we had booked it for more. The apartment is in a beautiful location with a perfect view of the sunset from the balcony. The apartment has everything you need and is quite comfortable. The shower, while a little tight, was great and overall the apartment had plenty of space. You must be warned that there are about 300 steps UP to this apartment met with about 20 very narrow and steep steps back DOWN to it's entrance. It is rigorous and tiresome, but in life sometimes the best places are the hardest to get to and this is well worth the trip. Barbara and her father were quite helpful at check in and Orpheo came quickly when we reported a small problem with the toilet. He fixed it immediately and everything was great. He recommended we eat at Billy's which is next door. It was AMAZING! You must go and you must order the fish special of the day. The waiter recommended a white wine from Cinque Terre which was the best white I have ever had. Please note that Billy's is closed on Thursday nights. We wanted to go back our second night and could not so I am so glad we went our first night there. I strongly recommend you stay in this apartment in Manarola! It is a beautiful town and we hiked to Valastra, Corniglia and Vernazza. It was a much larger undertaking then they warn you of with some pretty steep heights, but also a must do! Take the day, hike it and return on the ferry. Thank you Barbara and Orpheo!
