Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Although we had a good idea of what to expect from reading numerous VRBO reviews, upon our arrival at "house Oliver" we were more than pleasantly surprised. Walking up the few steps to the house we were taken back by the sheer beauty of the views. Their were gorgeous views that stretched from Minori on the left to shimmering blue waters on the right. Breathtaking! Entering the house, we set eyes on a tastefully furnished apartment with three levels, all spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we shared a glass of Prosecca while Oliver shared his ideas for places to eat and things to do. It was a great first day.

Beautiful and quite functional, the home was tastefully furnished. The kitchen, modern and clean is actually co-located with the upstairs master suite. Don’t ask me how they pulled this off but it fits perfectly and works very well when transporting coffee from the kitchen to the porch for an early morning viewing of the sunrise.

One must keep in mind that Amalfi Drive is RIGHT beneath the gate to House Oliver. Each time you leave you must proceed with some caution. Walking along the Amalfi Drive can be daunting at first but after a few days you will likely find it fun, interesting and great exercise. We did.

The view! You must see it to believe it. Enough said.

Now for what makes the visit a truly pleasurable experience: Oliver and his wife Lele (sp). They sparkle with enthusiasm for their beautiful home. They are proud of their country and the wonderful area they call home and rightfully so. Gracious, friendly and helpful they were available when we needed them and went quietly about their business when we didn’t. Indeed, it was because of this exuberance that we took him up on his “Boat Ride”. An experience for the ages. Seeing the Amalfi Coastline from the water was worth every penny. Oliver showed us sights we would never have seen on our own then took a slow cruise to a restaurant where my wife and I shared “Jackie’s Favorite” pasta. We swam twice and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

During our stay we had but few moments to talk with Lele. We would have loved more time with her.

I give House Oliver every bit of five stars in my rating. They work hard to earn that rating and all their efforts translate into a vacation experience that you will never forget.

PS: If you need a driver, ask for Claudio. He is something special!

Prime location for our wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Olivier and Leila,

We are just back from running about Firenze and Rome. I don’t know how to begin with your house and lovely generosity, not to mention the most stunning view on the Amalfi coast. The house was perfect, comfy for us all, positioned well along the coast in between larger more hectic villages, made us feel relaxed and so much at home.

the most enjoyable parts of the entire trip were gazing into the views with wine and music and preparing dinner from the local fish and cheese markets... Castiglione was fantastic, a private little beach with little treasure of local drinks and snacks and water unbelievably aqua and blue. Probably our favorite day relaxing..... we found everything so comfortable that it was as if we were carried away to paradise.... thank you for all the amazing recommendations. Ravello is a gem, if we can help spread the word that you’ve got the most stunning spot on the coast ..away from the touristic areas we will do. Loved minori and maiori as well....

You both are part of what made the trip so special and lovely ! Cannot thank you enough ! Laura, Donna, Sean & Perry

Spectacular views with Great owners

  • 5 of 5

Location:

The house is located in Marmorata, wedged between two small towns (Atrani and Minori) It was not touristy at all (which we enjoyed). We were able to walk to Minori, Atrani, and Amalfi in less than 30 minutes from the house (at separate times) during the day and at night. We were very confident with our safety here. This location is about a 45min drive from Positano.

House:

The house is well furnished with very comfortable beds and beautifully tiled bathrooms. Each room had its own kitchen (both with a stove and refrigerator). The house also has air condition in each room, so you can set the temperature for each room to different settings. There were 2 balconies, and the views were absolutely spectacular

Amenities:

The owners stocked the kitchen with plenty of breakfast food, snacks, and even dinner! This was really nice after traveling for over 12 hours. There was everything you needed in the house; shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels (bathing and beach), hair dryer, etc. The laundry is taken away, cleaned for you and returned folded. There is also a gym! Even the gym has a great view.

Owners:

Our hosts went above an beyond to make us feel at home and comfortable. Even taking additional measures for our friends who joined us on the trip. It was my boyfriend's birthday and Oliver took time to order and deliver a delicious cake. Oliver and Leila greeted us on the road when we arrived, showed us around the house, and had a drink of wine with us. As we left, they both came to have expresso to send us away. They were very helpful with places to go, and all of the restaurants they suggested were very good. We also loved Claudio, who is a local driver that Oliver recommended to us.

Extras:

You should take his boat tour.We took Oliver's boat tour, it was awesome! You are able to ask to stop and swim along the coast. The food and drinks were great, and Oliver was very knowledgeable about the coast. He shared stories at each stop.

Beautiful House and Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

Oliver and Lella are wonderful hosts and the house is even better than it appears in the photos. There are two separate bedrooms with a living room in between. All are decorated beautifully with everything you could think of needing in the house. There are three outdoor seating areas. The view to the coast is completely unobstructed. There was food an wine in the house when we arrived. For travelers who have not been to the Amalfi Coast, location and transportation are key. The house is centrally located to reach Positano, Ravello, Maiori. And from Amalfi we could reach Capri or any of the ports along the coast by ferry. I suggest taking the ferry or waking any time you can because traffic is a challenge along the coast. We hiked the Path of the Gods, visited Pompeii, had a day on the beach in Amalfi with cocktail service and also spent a day on Capri. We had dinner in all of the major towns along the coast and Oliver helped us with recommendations.

This property is absolutely gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

The property was even more beautiful than the pictures. The owners, Oliver and Lella were delightful people who were there to help us when we needed it but left us to ourselves to enjoy our time on the Amalfi coast. From the arrival when Oliver and Lella met us and showed us the villa which included a kitchen stocked with food, to our departure, when they came down and we all had a good bye espresso you could not ask for better owners. If you rent from them you should also take the mini cruise with Oliver on his boat. The coast was beautiful and Oliver made a delicious lunch and served us right on the boat. I cannot say enough about this villa or Oliver and Lella. If I could I would give our entire experience ten stars. My wife and I would love to visit again.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

As noted in previous reviews, the property is simply outstanding. Yes, there’s those pesky steps. But; you get used to them fairly quickly. From the moment you arrive until you depart, Oliver and Lella are excellent host. Zippy, the cat, often joins you on the patio. The night views are simply gorgeous. Walking the Amalfi road is adventurous. But, worth it. The views are outstanding. From the time Oliver’s driver Claudio, picked us up in Rome until he dropped us at the Rome airport, he was readily available to transport us to our daily destination. The restaurants Oliver recommended were superb. The food was delicious and the pricing was reasonable. Our time at the villa was very relaxing. Well worth the expense.
