La casa de Barnaby es exquisita, está a una corta caminata de la playa o a dos minutos en vehículo. Rodeado de vegetación y selva. Muy adecuada para una escapada de la civilización. Está a media hora conduciendo de Quepos y Manuel Antonio lo cual lo hace que siempre tengas algo que hacer. La cocina está bastante completa pero le faltan algunas cosas como un microondas, por ejemplo. El A/C principal de la sala no funcionaba al igual que el de la habitación principal y era una lastima porque si que es necesario, hace mucho calor en verano. No hay conexión a internet como lo dice la descripción pero todas las operadoras de telefonía del país tienen cobertura en el lugar. Los trabajadores de la casa son muy amables. Sólo asegures que le gusten los perros ya que tienen dos de guardia sueltos por la propiedad. Nosotros disfrutamos muchísimo nuestra estadía.
Barnaby's house is exquisite, is a short walk from the beach or two minutes by car. Surrounded by a major greenery and forest. Great for a getaway from civilization. It is a half hour drive from Quepos and Manuel Antonio which makes you always have something to do. The kitchen is quite complete but is missing some things like a microwave, for example. The main A/C of the living did't work as well as the main room and it was a shame because it is really necessary, it is very hot in summer. No internet as it says in the description but all telephone operators in the country have coverage in place. The house workers are very friendly and helpful. Only be sure that you and your mates like dogs bc they have two guards and are loose on the property. We enjoyed our stay very much.
We stayed for one week in this beautiful villa with the nice view. The house is old , so it has some small deficit (it smells a bit fusty in some rooms, when too many electric appliance are working, there can be a power blackout, some of the beds bounce when you turn arround...but that is all and I think, these are aspects, which aren't deciding). The location is optimal for hikes and visit towns like Genova. The beach (the part which is for free) in Chiavari is rocky and slim, but enough to cool.
We advise: Hiking through Cinque Terre and on Monte Penna, visit Fruttuoso and Portofino AND chilling at the pool! :)
We enjoyed the evenings with candlelight in the garden and breakfast on one of the terraces.
And at last: All my questions were answerd directly, not only by Barnaby, but also by Claudia the neighbor!
Great house in a great environment. Good location on the top of the hill, very quiet. Enjoyable to stay by the pool and admire the beautiful view.
We had everything we needed. Although Barnaby is not nearby, he gives clear instructions and his kind neighbors are here to welcome you, and would help if needed.
The place was clean.
We do recommend
Die Villa liegt traumhaft versteckt in den Bergen oberhalb der wunderschönen Stadt Chiavari (vormittags ist u.a. der Markt sehr zu empfehlen). Der Ort ist ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge per Bahn nach Genua im Norden oder Cinque Terre im Süden (jeweils ca. 1 Stunde Fahrzeit direkt an der fantastischen ligurischen Küste). Für die Faulenzertage ist die charmante Villa selbst mit ihrem schönen Garten und Pool hervorragend geeignet. Mit 2 Familien mit Kindern lassen sich die Tage hier großartig verleben. Die Wanderwege und der nahe gelegene Bolzplatz sorgen für extra Abwechslung.
Auf unsere Probleme nach einem Hagelsturm hat Barnaby schnell reagiert und hat sich auch sonst als nett und hilfreich erwiesen.
With two Dutch families we spent a fantastic time in this charming, authentic house in the hills of Liguria. We loved the swimmingpool and the garden which is spread out on several terraces with fruit trees and fresh herbs to be used in the kitchen. We had a very nice walk with our children (aged 7 till 11) on the "five towers" hike which starts immediately next to the house and which follows a trail through forests and vineyards. We had a nice meal at the Osteria in Sun Rufalo. The restaurant in San Bartolomeo is also highly recommended. The small football field on turf was used quite extensively during our stay. Perfect house for two families. Do not expect an inconspicuous holiday home. This place has the original charm that only exists because of its history that is tangible in every room. Highly recommended.
We had a great holiday with family and friends in this beautiful house on top of hill. We loved the artistic atmosphere. The location with the beautiful coastline and hills is ideal. You can hike, relax on the beach or read books in the garden on the different terrassen or near the pool overlooking the mountains.
This is an amazing house with an incomparable position. Charming, personal, beautiful, private. We loved it!

The house was just what we were looking for--a great place to relax and share with friends!! The driving instructions were spot on, and we had no trouble finding it (just keep going up!!). We followed the instructions, which told us to enjoy the old house and forgive the quirks! The rooms are charming and the pool and patio quite relaxing. Jeff may have gotten a bit tired of driving up and down, but that was the only complaint! The town of Chiavari is charming, as well. The people are friendly, and we finally got the pronunciation right! We loved La Cava!! We went back a second time and were treated to Italian karaoke on Saturday night! They may still be talking about our friend, Flor from Mexico!! We also enjoyed Pisa and Portofino. Thanks, we truly enjoyed our Italy experience!
Everything is easy with this type of guests. If I have to define them, the words are friendly, quiet and respectful. Everything was left nice and clean
Barnaby was a great guest! Fun to have around, clean, and respectful. We'd love to have him back anytime!!
Unfortunately I did not get to meet Barnaby and his friends as they were getting into town quite late. They left my place in perfect condition. Easy going!
Barnaby is a class A act! A wordly, intelegent gentleman living the life in NYC. He's got great taste, a "know how" for NYC and his apartment is clearly awesome. A ideal host and a great apartment you're sure to enjoy.
