My husband and I, along with my brother and his wife stayed at Villa Olimpo for 3 glorious days - We wished we would have stayed longer. Marina, the owner of the B & B, is fabulous - such a wonderful, kind and gracious hostess. She made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay here. This beautiful home was originally built by Marina's great grandfather - it is stunning, the rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are very nice and the views are spectacular. Rapallo is so central to everything. There are cruises traveling daily to Cinque Terra, Portofino, St. Margerita. By car or bus - short distance to Genoa. For anyone travelling to the Italian Riviera, we highly recommend Villa Olimpo.
My wife Deb and I stayed here for a few days in May 2015. It was absolutely perfect. Marina is a kind, wonderful woman. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding area, even giving us a pre-made map with recommendations for local dining. Breakfast was delicious and the views from the room were gorgeous. The location was perfect for us. Easy access to nearby tourist locations such as Portofino and Cinque Terre. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Me encantó parar en la casa de Marina, me sentí muy cómoda, la atención fue muy acogedora, la casa es trasladarse en el tiempo, un placer con todas sus letras. Volvería allí y se la recomendaré a mis amigos que pronto visitarán Rapallo. Gracias Marina por tu hospitalidad.
We were in the villa for 1 week, it's really fantastic! All the rooms in the villa are beautiful with a lot of art. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast is good. Also the location is nice, just à few minuts walk to the center of Rapallo. Marina is such a nice lady and a great host. She only wants the best for her guests. We will go back!
senza parole! abbiamo soggiornato fine estate 2012 durante una settimana di sole totale ! non riusciamo a trovare difetti alla struttura ed alla ospitalita' del titolare e famiglia. camere pulite e silenziose ; ambiente curato di design ma accogliente e originale. il rapporto prezzo qualita' e' ottimo tenuto conto di quanto ormai accade di trovare in giro tanto sponsorizzato ma poi deludente !!! tornenemo la prossima estate sicuramente .
We arrived very late due to getting lost and Giovanni was very helpful. He even offered to take us down to the village to get something to eat. The next morning when we were ready to leave we went to the car and the tire was completely flat. Both my friend and I are older he was kind enough to change our tire for us and tell us where to take it to get it repaired. Casa Kiwi is very clean and has a view to die for. Only recommendation I could make is to get there before it gets dark. We enjoyed our stay very much. Coni Meyers
What a wonderful stay. Marina is a fabulous host. Nothing is too much to ask and she goes out of her way to make your stay special. Breakfast was outstanding with good home-brewed coffee and served in such a beautiful setting. Her house is a treasure trove of genuine family antiques. It is a short walk to the station, bus stop or supermarket and the ports of Portofino and St Margherita are a short bus trip away.
colazione in veranda: cornetto appena sfornato, focaccia fresca (buona quella alle olive e quella alle cipolle) e uno sguardo meraviglioso sul golfo; ho dormito 10 ore filate, grazie all'ambiente sereno, tranquillo e pieno di storia /storie; sole ed aria frizzantina ... prima di scendere al mare, un giro nel parco (e nell'orto) sulle orme del Capitano ... immersi nei profumi delle rose e dei fiori d'arancio ...
I had wonderful time there. Villa is a really typical Italian villa with a very cute Winter garden with a nice vise. Marina is an amazing host. Overall it is a very warm place to stay. it is also very close to St margherita and portofino.
We spent an outstanding weekend in this wonderful villa, a special thank to the innkeeper Marina. She is very helpful and polite. The view from the villa is wonderful and the position is very good for the beaches as well as the centre. We are looking forward to coming there again.
This was quite a special place inside and out.The decor with beautiful paintings,antiques and rich with family history was so interesting and inviting.The view from the sunrooms and upstairs is magnificient of the bay and Rapallo.We could walk to restuarants and the lovely harbor, take a bus to Portifino for the afternoon,and enjoy a glass of special cello with Marina,our gracious hostess. She served fresh pasteries, yogurt and lots of wonderful coffee for breakfast and provided information on restuarants and places of interest.We did not have a car and Rapallo is convenient for train travel to the Cinque Terre and Genoa,conecting to Milan.
Had three wonderful days overlooking the rapallo bay from this sumptuos villa and park, reading, admiring the wonderful antique interiors and enjoying this kind of " D`Annunzio -feeling" The innkeeper is absolutely charming
