Ruth is a wonderful host and her apartment is the most beautiful airbnb I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The apartment itself is modern and well equipped with everything you could need and more. Ruth is an extremely attentive host and clearly has a great eye for detail and pride in the accommodation she offers. The apartment is set in an idyllic location overlooking a small rocky beach and out to the beautiful Mediterranean sea. I will very much miss sitting on the balcony and listening to the ocean and I hope to be lucky enough to stay here again in the future.

Worth any price! The apartment is beautifully situated with a fantastic view. We had wonderful days and will come back very soon. The hospitality and the great tips to get the most out of your holiday are really awesome.

I cannot recommend this apartment enough or Ruth who owns it. The apartment is one of those romantic little gems that you would never get bored of. It is beautiful and thoughtfully decorated and has everything you could possibly need provided. Ruth is an excellent host and gave us so much advice and help from the very start. We would never have managed the car parking or train without her help. She goes above and beyond and is passionate about the area and had excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants. The home was spotlessly clean and we wished we had booked a longer stay. We will definitely be back.

Just book it! It is worth every penny to stay in Ruth’s apartment. She is a fantastic host and we will miss the peaceful sound of the waves breaking on the beach below.

Book now!!!! Ruth’s home is amazing and the location and view is incredible! Ruth went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She met us at the train station and personally walked us to her home while showing us around along the way. Her place was sparkling clean and she had extra amenities like coffee, snacks, soap, shampoo, conditioner and even a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge. Her list of tips for food, hiking, shopping and more was fantastic and we were able to relax and use her notes to guide our entire stay. We splurged a bit more on this AirBnb stay since it was our honeymoon, and it was worth every penny.  The best AirBnb experience we have ever had!!!

Ruth made us feel right at home in Vernazza. The apartment is newly renovated, very clean, offers plenty of space, and a breathtaking view of the water on the private porch. Ruth was one of the best hosts we’ve had in all our travels – offering frequent and timely communication leading up to our trip, meeting us at the train station to help us with our bags, and giving us wonderful tips and recommendations of what to do in Cinque Terre. She made our honeymoon stay in Vernazza even better than we could have expected. Highly recommend this stay to anyone!

It is not accurate to call Ruth a superhost on Airbnb because that would equate her to so many others. There is no equal! Ruth is a Combination of Martha Stewart (sanz law breaking) and Rick Steves! She is generous with the amenities in the home with details such as umbrellas and walking sticks, maps and books, electrical connectors (a brief list!), and generous with her time in making your holiday a most memorable occasion by recommending and arranging the bookings you require for a perfect vacation! She knows business owners in Cinque Terre and makes arrangements happen. We’ve seen both apartments that Ruth manages and they are both gorgeous…and the view from both is incredible! Oh how we already miss that view!!! We had a magical time for our 30th anniversary in Vernazza – THANK YOU RUTH!!!

Ruth is more than a super host. She is more like a good friend focused on ensuring that every part of one’s trip even before arrival is supported with her wealth of information as well as her warmth and genuineness. Her apartment is perfectly located with two balconies, one with a timeless view over the Mediterranean Sea and the other immersed within the rooftops of Vernazza. This latter view allows one to truly feel like part of the Cinque Terre community, a true sense of escapism from our usual lives. As has been said many times over, the apartment is impeccably clean, wonderfully bright and airy as well as perfectly equipped with everything that one requires in a home. Ruth does not take any shortcuts and once again, the sense of being looked after is very real. Thank you Ruth for providing such amazing accommodation.

Best place to stay in Cinque Terre. The apartment overlooks a beach on one side and the city on the other. Ruth was a phenomenal host and provided us with all the information we could’ve hoped for to make our trip a success. This was our best Air BnB experience to date. Amazing.

The perfect vacation home! Ruth made sure our stay was comfortable, with every amenity available. Location & views are amazing – staying here was a highlight of our trip. We’d love to visit Vernazza again, and if we do, we will definitely stay here again. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you, Ruth!

We were a hot mess headed in late and flustered. The entire trip there, Ruth helped us with advice on what to do when our trains were late and all seemed impossible! We were expected to arrive much earlier than we did and Ruth welcomes us with smiles and such happiness that it felt like all would be okay. And it was more than okay! The apartment is something out of dreams! The views from every window and door are incredible! She thought of literally EVERYTHING! If I can get back to Italy, it will be to spend the entire trip at Ruth’s place! Vernazza was our favorite and had so much charm and wonderful shops, people, restaurants—you will not be disappointed! Ten stars!

This airbnb is worth every penny. My group of friends was a bit concerned about the price so we stayed at more budget-friendly options for the remainder of our trip, and we all agreed this one was entirely worth it! You’ll wake up to the sound of the waves crashing underneath you, then spend your morning barefoot on the patio watching the sunrise. Cinque Terre has my heart, and this apartment is, I promise, exactly where you want to stay in Cinque Terre. Two night was not long enough, I could have spent a full week here.
