“Great Place away from the Action”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We arrived in Elba with no real expectations. We booked the apartment through Airbnb and it was the first time we had used that site. We arrived after a long day's travelling from northern Tuscany. Someone was waiting to open up for us and that worked well.
The house has nice indoor and outdoor areas both of which we used in the summer climate. There is a barbecue, outdoor eating area and washing facilities. The house overlooks a gully with a church on the other side and the bells give charming ring every so often. Inside there a nice size main bedroom and a second bedroom suitable for children. One downside is that there is no wifi.
We had a nice time in Elba. It is off the beaten tourist track for foreigners and as we are non Italian speaking that posed some challenges. It is not an easy island to get to and from but Rio Marina has its own ferry service which helped us.
The house is advertised as being 'near the sea' but there is no view of the sea from the house and a 10 minute walk to the town where the port and sea are. Were the house to be located with a view of the sea I would rate it much higher. Another downside for us was that we didn't have a car and were not able to rent one in Rio Marina. However that is not the fault of the property or its owner.
Overall we were happy with our first experience with Airbnb and happy with the house and its facilities

“Great House - Fantastic Location”

Fantastic House - great location in quieter Marina. house had all the extra's that you need while traveling away from home. Rio Marina was fantastic for the more authentic experience. If you are not looking for the real tourist style of Marina then this is for you (short drive or bus trip to the other Marina's). Great mine tour for the kids.

“Nice holiday house with lovely garden, perfectly located in Rio Marina (Elba)”

Perfect location, close to the center of the village and all services (5 minutes walk) but surrounded by green and rather quiet. Very clean, furnished simply but with taste. Suitable for family with children/teenagers, enough room for 4. Lovely garden with ouside shower and shaded terrasse. Kitchen correctly equiped but a coffee machine and/or a (tea) kettle would have been appreciated. Reasonable price for the island Elba.
