After a hot day in the hills, it's very good to come back home to a fridge full of cold drinks. A few nights we were too tired to go out for a meal and bought some provisions from the local mini mart. To eat a meal on your terrace with a view of the sun going down over Positano is something never to be forgotten. You can't stay at a better place to walk the path of the gods or any of the other hikes in the hills.

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.
