We choose the villa, as it has everything we were looking for:

Direct access to the sea, parking, pool. A lot of room to live and enjoy inside and outside. Furnished like an Italian family home and not like a typical vacation home, with a lot of art.

Spectacular view to the ocean from all rooms and from the large terraces.

Unique rock corridor.

INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa La Madonnina is more beautiful than pictures or words can describe. Even rainy weather cannot deter from the beauty that surrounds the villa. Inside, there is everything you could want, including the views! This villa was a treat to stay in. The location is wonderful as well, as it allowed for many great day trips!
Frank, Luigi, Teresa, and her son made our stay as enjoyable as possible! Frank is easy to communicate with and gave us helpful tips! I encourage you to have Teresa cook a meal for you if she is available. Frank has a splendid wine collection that is inexpensive and tasty! March is a wonderful time to visit the Almalfi Coast. The weather is moderate and the tourists have not yet arrived!! It was truly one of the most beautiful places we have visited.
Thanks Frank! We hope to come back!

INDEED SPECIAL!

  • 5 out of 5
We were very impressed with just about everything: the house itself, the surroundings, the owner's tips.
If you can afford the luxury it is worth every penny. A special thanks to Teresa for taking so good care of all of us.

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE! EVERYTHING YOU COULD DREAM OF AND MORE!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I along with my brother, sister and brother-in-law stayed at Frank and Julia's home and it was the best travel experience we have ever had. The villa is ABSOLUTELY stunning and if you can believe it, more beautiful than the pictures. Frank ensured every detail was taken care of, Proseco and flowers awaiting us on our arrival, the home was impeccably kept, we were able to order groceries before our arrival and they were waiting for us when we arrived. Teresa, the housekeeper was lovely. We felt as though we were at home immediately upon our arrival. Beautiful restaurants within walking distance in the quaint and unspoiled Marina del Praia. We would highly recommend Frank's villa to anyone looking for an authentic, local experience of Amalfi. Thanks so much Frank and Julia-you have set a gold standard for VRBO.

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING PRIVATE AMALFI VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
You will not find a better villa to rent along the Amalfi coast. Absolutely stunning views with a very private setting and all the amenities. Beautiful villa built right into the cliff with a rock tunnel to a wing of bedrooms. Each room was large with more than ample closet space and beautiful ensuite bathrooms. Each enjoyed a beautiful view of the ocean - even the showers had windows!! The property had multiple decks to enjoy the scenery and the waterfront area was beautifully landscaped with various sitting areas. The owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating and offered invaluable tips on things to do while we stayed on the coast. It was an easy walk to the next local town and nicely positioned between Praiano and Amalfi. We found restaurants were very willing to pick us up for dinner and if not we could walk to several or take a bus. We couldn't have been happier and I would strongly, strongly recommend staying here. The home is very nicely decorated with local ceramics and you really feel like you are staying in a home. We went in March and the weather was lovely - 17 degrees and given the villa faces south west we had plenty of additional warm sun to make the stay perfect. We will be back again for sure. Thank you Frank for making our stay perfect in every way!!!!

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 out of 5
I have to apologize for the late review. Eight of us (6 adults and 2 children) stayed at this beautiful villa last May. Pictures cannot describe how lovely this villa really is! Not only is it clean and full of wonderful amenities, it is in a great location on the Amalfi coast. We were a short walk from several restaurants as well as a short drive from Positano and Amalfi. The owner, Frank, provides you with ample information about the area and local attractions & restaurants as well as contacts for groceries and such. We had an amazing experience relaxing on the terrace w/ wine from Frank's wine cellar, swimming in the pool and sea, and experiencing life as the locals do. To this day, my 9 and 7 year old children say the best part of visiting Italy was "The Villa" and I couldn't agree w/ them more! We would not hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity should arise. Many thanks to Frank for sharing his villa and allowing us to stay in such an amazing place.

EVEN BETTER THEN THE PICTURES SUGGEST

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at this Villa and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The facility was immaculate, the views were breathtaking and the owner could not have been more helpful. A very unique home in a very unique setting. We had a trip not soon to forget. Sitting on the terrace looking at the view was everything one could hope for in a Villa on the Amalfi Coast. Highly recommended.

Our only advice would be if you have a car be sure to have small one - two small cars would work as well but a large car is a bit of a challenge as with everything in the area - parking is tight.

Notes:
The main living/dining room is furnished in the same colourful, eclectic style that characterizes the rest of the house. The two big vases, original oil paintings and ceramic tiles on the floor give you an immediate feeling of being in an Italian home. The antique dining table can accommodate 12 people for a nice meal. For an after dinner drink and a nice talk you may want to sit down in the comfortable sitting area fitted with sofas from Gervasoni - a famous Italian design brand. See and -if windows are open - hear the ocean from your seat. You can also play a round of cards or other games at the game table. Decks of cards and some games like chess, backgammon and others you find in the villa. If you have guests you can use the game table to accommodate more people for a meal. A rest room is adjacent to the social area. In front of the living room is the roofed loggia, which leads to the main terrace.
