We had a fantastic time and the apartment was exactly as described. Just 5 or so minutes from the main part of Marina de Massa, the apartment had everything that we needed even a couple of bicycles. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the area was extremely safe. The WiFi took a day to get going but Rita was very helpful and after that we had no problems however it is 3G Wi-Fi so the signal can be a little bit intermittent at times. Thank you for a great day.

In fact, we have no complaints. Everything was as described. The accommodation helps Patricia (a friend of Rita) - she doesn't speak English, speaks only Italian :). She also came at 4am when we were leaving the apartment. Apartament was super-located, 10 minutes to the beach, similar to the city center. Internet didn't work, but Rita was trying to help us. We not repaired the router, but most of the time we spent away from home so we didn't mind. Rita stay in touch all the time - mail, phone messages. Watch out for mosquitoes.

We are a family with 2 kids (2 and 8 years old). It is a nice comfortable apartment situated not far from the beach. Everything was wonderful incl. communication with the host, house assistant support etc. before one case has happened. One day (the 5th day out of 11) we came back from the beach and found that all our electronic devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) are stolen. We would like to mention that all the window doors and front door were closed and locked by us as always. After that we found a damage of the front door. Our host gave us a house assistant and the interpreter to support us and call out for the police upon our request. The host also called the lock specialist to install additional locker and promised to visit us. From the talk with a house lady and interpreter we found out that this is not the first time when theft happens in this building. After that we noticed additional locks on the doors of the other apartments in the building. We understood that safety level of this apartment is not enough because there is no safety box, additional lock, etc. Due to the lack of security and proactive information from the host about theft risks in this region we made a decision to write a letter to the host regarding possible damage cost compensation. At the same time we informed Airbnb helpdesk about the incident. Afterwards the host disappeared and almost stopped to communicate with us not only regarding this case but also for the daily house activity requests. The lock specialist has never appeared to install the additional locker and the host didn't visit us as was promised. We tried to communicate with her through SMS and e-mail, which was a mistake. As soon as we wrote the official letter regarding all the open issues through Airbnb we managed to get the feedback regarding all the open issues from the host only in the evening before our last day of stay. Check out time was at 11 a.m. At 10.30 the house assistant has arrived and was sitting by the door waiting for our leaving. At 11.00 we received a call from the host with strong impolite request to leave the house. In fact we left the house at 11.30. We were very upset with this attitude. We do not want to make any conclusions. We just want to share our story and experience with other travelers. The decision is upon you. P.S. We would like to thank our house assistant Anna-Maria and interpreter Benedetta who supported us as much as they could.

It was an unpleasant experience for our family with 2 children . We sent a message to the owner informing our arrival time. We had a wrong turn at the high way , so we sent again a message telling the owner we may arrive half an hour later. By the time we arrived, no one was there. We called the owner. The line was busy. About 10 minutes later an eldly lady arrived. She could not speak a single word in English and we tried to guess what she said. Meanwhile she tried to call the owner. The line was still busy . So she left. About 15 minutes later we called again. Finally my wife got the owner on the phone. She told him that no one was there at the door when we arrived and we could not communicate with the elderly lady . No air conditioning and no Wi-Fi.( Our own misstake, we thought this appartment has air-con and Wi-Fi ) It was very hot in the appartment. We needed some help and some information about the supermarket, drugstore (our son was bitten by a mosquito in this appartment within 10 minutes after we checked in). The owner told my wife that it is not a hotel and they are not supposed to offer any infos. My wife could not believe what she heard. The conversation was over . There were not enough bath towels for 4 of us. A small , thin roll ( half was already used by the former guests) of toilet paper was hanging in the bathroom. We sent a message asking where we can find the toilet paper. He sent back a message telling us that we have to buy the toilet paper by ourselves and should leave a roll out of courtesy. If that was the conditions that we had to fullfill, we would never have chosen this appartment. The location is good.

Dear Guenter I did not say any of it I immediately sent the lady take what was missing and I have given with kindness all the necessary information that I have requested arrogantly . Logically, when we go into a house and arrive with a delay of more than an hour we can have the patience to wait 5 minutes and I repeat there is no daily housekeeping service .

Very comfortable apartment with all amenties except no WiFi which made organising trips etc difficult. TV reception isn't great and not as close to Cinque Terra as we would have liked some 45 to 50 minutes away but Massa is a beautiful area with push bikes to ride and is close to amazing Cararra marble quarries.
