Beautiful Amalfi view
The place is excellent! Great location with a wonderful restaurant in close proximity. The grocery store is a short drive and has everything you require. Morning sunrises and evening sunsets are gorgeous. Our host Pasquale and his wife Giovanna are easy to deal with.
Wonderful house for a holiday!
Great views of the coastline, wonderful host who met our driver when we couldn't find the house and gave us food suggestions! House was as described, loved the garden with the clementine tree and lounge chairs and a quiet location on the coast. I want to return!
Some GREAT, some not-so-much.
The owner was wonderful! He helped us up the 59 stairs to get to the house by hefting my 50 pound suitcase on to his shoulder and hiking all the way up without stopping! I was impressed. Then toward the end of the stay we decided to forgo Napoli and stay two days longer. Called the owner who was happy to accommodate us. Very nice kitchen which we used several times. It was stocked with basics; dishes, pots & pans, flat ware, salt, pepper, garlic, etc. however really could have use one sharp knife and a couple of ice trays. There was a very handy clothes washing machine but no dryer. We had to hang clothes to dry on a drying rack so they all turned out crunchy, but clean. The restaurant right below our house was great! The family who runs were really wonderful. They made gnocchi special for my husband because he told them it was his families specialty. Very sweet people. Also we had a designated parking space for our rental car which was wonderful! Parking is hard to come by in the area.
On the down side, there was major construction going on across the road from us and down below our house. Wish we had been informed. The cranes obstructed the fantastic view from the very sweet balcony and the noise was bothersome. Also the dogs and rooster in the area were pretty noisy. The beds were brick hard and the pillows were like sand bags. We could not get the TV to work at all. The whole house was in need of a lot of repair with plaster and paint pealing off the walls in several places. The showers are super tiny. My husband is a good size man but not obese and he could not turn around in either one of them.
Of course when renting a private house you are not going to find perfect and the price was right. Obviously it was not so bad that we didn't want to stay the extra two days. LOVE THE AREA! Truly this was the best vacation EVER!
Very scenic place with great management
This is a great villa with a great terrace overlooking the sea. As mentioned, it's plenty of stairs to reach the villa (as is the case all over Amalfi Coast). We counted about 50 stairs but it's not too challenging if you're in ok condition and the view is worth it. The couch and beds could be a little more comfortable but to be fair, we stay in Italy quite often and this seems to be the norm everywhere, every time in rental places. This is a rural area so there will be rural sounds such as a very near rooster who was proudly crowing every morning as early as 5am and there is a dog close who is barking a LOT. We were treated very well by the property manager who has perfect English and a great professional personality. We very much recommend this place! There are so many great things to see and do from here.
Hated to leave.
Great location! Loved all of the people we met, thanks to Pasquale! In particular, he set us up with local drivers who really showed us some special places on the Amalfi Coast. We really hated to leave.
Beautiful view but lacking a few things
This place has a great view and is overall a nice place to stay. The restaurants nearby are good places to eat and location is good. A few things to consider; there is a flight of steps (around 50) that needs to be considered when packing to keep from needing to haul large bags up, the reserved parking spot is very difficult to use unless you have a fiat or something very small (this type of car is needed for driving the coast also), the beds are very firm, the shower is very small, and the coffee maker didn't work well when we were there. Many of these things are normal for Italy, but just need to be aware of them in case your physical needs don't allow you to enjoy this place.
