The space

From the entrance we have a small dining area with a table for breakfast and a window that opens on a typical Cinque Terre court. There is no kitchen in this apartment, but we have anyway a refrigerator, a microwave oven and tea/coffee maker so that giests can nicely have here breakfasts and light meals.
Two rooms open on the right: one double and one double with extra bed. On the left a spacious bathroom with shower.
Central heating, makes the apartment enjoyable even in winter season. No air conditiong in these rooms, due to the fact that:
1. stone walls are very thick here (more than 60 cm) and this keeps the properties fresh even in the hottest days
2. authorization for air conditioning equipments are very rare and given to owner only for strictly medical reasons
3. all the Cinque Terre belong to the Park Administration and respect nature trying to limit waste of energy as much as possible.
It is ideal solution for families or party of 5 and a nice property for all who want to feel the real village life.
Everybody is happy in staying at this centrally located property.
Property is equipped with tea / coffee boiler, microwave oven, free wifi.

Guest access

Reaching the apartment can be a bit tiring since stairs are quite steep, but once in the apartment, light and colors fill up your heart.

PLEASE NOTICE! City Tax (Tassa di soggiorno) 1,00 € per person/per night and will apply to the first three days of your stay. The City Tax is not payable by children under 11, tourist guides and drivers of groups staying within the Cinque Terre area.

Other things to note

WIFI - do not come to the 5 terre if WIFI is a must
WIFI is often an issue in the Cinque Terre and most of our reviews, even the most enthusiastic and positive, mention disappointment for WIFI service provided (or not provided).
GOOD WIFI SERVICE: that’s a miracle!!! So be surprised if that happens!
If phone companies won’t improve their service consider that, in The Cinque Terre, wifi does not work nicely. We do our best to offer the service, but we are not responsible for any failure! You are advised!
So we need to point out a few basic info on this argument.
Being the Cinque Terre a National Park with ancient buildings and reduced ways to add phone lines and repeaters (they would inevitably destroy the environment !) WIFI SERVICE IS INEVITABLY BAD OR LACKING.
Where possible, owners and property managers struggle to provide the best available service, but it must be clear to all the Cinque Terre Lovers and Travellers, who choose this destination to discover Nature and Landscapes, that they they cannot get, at the same time, CITY LIKE services. 
A lack in comfort and civilised (and stressful) services is the compromise to be paid to get as close as possible to Nature.
Most of the owners that offer complimentary WIFI to their guests, also struggle, everyday, to offer comfortable, clean and welcoming properties, most of the time with amazing views, and always with a personal and human touch and with high management costs (given the difficult area where properties are located). 
It is really frustrating for all of them knowing, at the end of their guests staying, that the only comment is on their wifi service or receiving bad reviews just for this.
We offer for free, at Cinque Terre Riviera Company, out of our office premises in Vernazza a FREE WIFI SERVICE (FREEwiMAN). This service is acceptable and well working 24/24 for all guests having or accounts and that’s what we can do to help our guests not staying disconnected when in the Cinque Terre. 
But we hope, anyway, that a holiday in Vernazza and in all the other villages will not be spoiled by the lack of the internet. 
We would say that NO WIFI is a plus!!! Enjoy your holiday, have fun and relax! 
There’s so much out of the WEB and in your HEARTS to be explored!
No refund will be give for lacking or bad wifi service! Sorry!

Vernazza and the Cinque Terre are a piece of paradise…
Where locals live all year round, so you’ll see them really enjoying the village life, taking care of their vegetable gardens and vineyards.
The village slopes uphill so expect some stairs or hilly small roads.
The water is beautiful, perfect for a jump after a hike.
Give a try to a sip of white wine, order some anchovies here, and you’ll definitely fall in love, wishing to spend more time in this village.
Our rentals here are simple and most of them with great sea views.

The apartment is in a great location! We walked right out the door straight to the beach or to the shops and restaurants in Vernazza. I loved staying in that town. For 5 people for 4 nights it was a bit cramped, but overall we had a good time. There are quite a bit of rules that go along with using the apartment, which I didn't expect. Less of an air b&b and more of a self service hotel. Overall good experience!

Response from Cinque Terre Riviera:
Dear Kelli, thanks a lot I know it's annoying adding rules, but unfortunately we are forced to put them inside our apartments, since not all guests are alike and basic daily house cares are unknown to many. We sadly discovered it in years of rentals and this prevents much issues to the following guests. Sorry to hurt you! All the best, Miriana

Our stay at Sti Scainetti in Vernazza was wonderful. The two bedroom apartment was clean, quaint, and exactly as advertised. The stairs were a bit difficult to get up with all of our luggage for a two week trip around Italy but we knew that before hand. Checkin with the Hotel Riviera was a a very short walk from the train station and the apartment was just a quick walk from there. Everything was so easy and convenient. We were there on a Tuesday morning and there were markets right outside our building which apparently happen every Tuesday. We loved every second in Vernazza and our stay, and we didn't want to leave!

This is the best place to stay in CT. Vernazza is the cutest town of the lot and this apartment is perfectly located on the Main Street. The bedrooms are a good size, the kitchenette is small but it's all you need as you'll want to eat out each meal and enjoy what the town has to offer. We truly had the best time - highly recommend!

We stayed in Sti Scainetti in late May. The location was perfect! Far enough from the main square to be quiet, but close enough to everything to be very convenient. We arrived on the last train from La Spetzia at 11:30pm. It was very easy to find Cinque Terre Riviera office and find the keys and easy to find our apartment. We found the accommodations fine for a family of 4.

We visited Sti Scainetti over a three night trip to the Cinque Terre. We wish we had more time! Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It's worth noting that it is a little on the small side, and if you've got 4 (or 5) people, it's quite cramped. There's also not much of a common area to share. With that said, I doubt you'll find anywhere as centrally located in one of the villages that's large! The price, location (absolutely fantastic) and friendly (prompt!) hosts make up for that -- they even kindly turned the central heating on for us when Mum got cold overnight :). Our hosts also pointed us in the direction of the outdoors shop across the road, who advised us on which paths we could take between the villages to avoid the bulk of the tourists -- very (very) valuable advice. Thanks again for a great stay!

Friendly and accessible host. Great location. Clean and comfortable bedrooms and bathroom. A convenient place to explore the Cinque Terra from and to sleep. Lack of living room and kitchen means you don't plan to spend time other than resting in the apartment.

Overall enjoyed our stay. Very good location in the centre of town. It was very noisy in the evenings which is to be expected being right in the centre of town and we didn't mind. Beach is close by and so is the train station and plenty of beautiful restaurants. As described in the listing, the apartment is up 3 very steep flights of stairs. At check in we were kindly offered a porter to take the bags up for us at €3 per bag - money well spent. Initially I was put off booking due to the large list of rules and extra charges on the listing, plus some of the other reviews mentioned have to take out rubbish a long distance away on the last day. Despite this we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
