The steps give it a bit more privacy and seclusion that might be expected. You are very close to good restaurants and shops - but you are also tucked away. It has great space - plenty of room on the terrace - but also a couple of balconies. The views are fantastic but it is also easy to do you own thing. We were a mixed party with people working, relaxing, reading and so on. We found most days we wanted to get back and unwind on the terrace - but it was easy for people to do things without getting on top of each other. Definitely well above average accommodation in a great setting. My advice would be to make sure you carry items back with you every time - water, beer, breakfast etc.

Walking distance to the Center of Positano, Positano's beaches and to the Arienzo beach on the other side. The host was great at communication, answering any questions promptly. There is good instructions in a book prepared and left by the host for guests (recommendations of where to go, what to visit, restaurants, etc is all there). We loved the views from the terrace. The quietness of the place, assured an easy sleep after long days of exploring lovely Positano and other areas. The host (Tim) also arranged a welcoming gift of wine, cheese, ham and bread for us and this was waiting on our arrival - thank you very much for this. Overall, excellent place.
