About Roberto Gualtieri
I'm a scientist and work at the Dept of Biology, University of Naples Federico II
Why Roberto Gualtieri chose Positano
This holiday home is my family home at least from three generations. It is the home of the wonderful town and the sea where I spent my childhood. It is a part of my heart, or better, my DNA. In 1996 I decided to rent my house weekly to keep it in good conditions for me and my family. I do that through several agencies and under different names for commercial reasons. My greatest desire is to let my guests feel at least some of the love I have for my home and for Positano
What makes this Villa unique
Special features of my villa are: the spectacular 180° views from a height of 50m on the sea. It feels like you are on the deck of a ship. The ceramic floors and handmade terracotta. The tranquility and privacy. The furniture that is not that of a normal holiday home but that of a house that has been furnished by the owner family to live in. The vaulted ceilings Saracen style.

I THOUGHT THAT I'D DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN!
Immediately upon entering Villa Ibiscus, I knew that I'd stumbled upon the PERFECT choice for a vacation rental. The home, the location, the views...everything about it was breathtaking. This was a girls-only vacation for myself and 4 girlfriends and I was charged with finding our vacation home. A daunting task, because it's difficult to please 5 women, and because I knew that it was important to find a place that gave each of us our own private space, yet also provided common areas for us to hang out and enjoy each other's company. Villa Ibiscus provided both....plenty of bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, plus huge patios on all 3 levels (furnished with exactly the right amount of furniture), plus spacious indoor common areas that included 2 living rooms, a huge dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen. Honestly, we didn't really make use of the indoor space very much because the ocean and city views from all of the outdoor patios was so beautiful that nobody wanted to be inside. The property is managed by Marco and Maria, both of whom moved mountains to make sure that our visit was spectacular. We hired Marco to give us a private boat tour of the Amalfi coast and that experience was so wonderful that we ended up spending a good bit of the rest of our vacation with Marco as he recommended and guided us on many adventures. We all agree that Marco has become our friend. He showed us places that we never would have found on our own (ask him about the farm-to-table restaurant on the mountaintop,! Also the little fishing village that we accessed by boat, with the little restaurant whose owner is a gourmet chef, where Marco spun a few records and EVERYONE in the place, including the staff, jumped up and began dancing!). Marco brought the FUN to so many of our experiences. On the last night, Marco and Maria prepared for us a gourmet Italian meal at our Villa, wines included, which was the perfect conclusion to our Positano vacation. (Maria is a lovely and kind person who also happens to be an incredible cook!) Without reservation, I have recommended Villa Ibiscus to my brother and his family, and another friend of mine, who are planning vacations in Positano next year. Book this villa and you will not be sorry. It's absolutely PERFECT.

The Villa was every bit as beautiful and more than the pictures depict! We LOVED our stay!
Roberto and his team of Maria and Marco are the perfect hosts. They worked hard to make our stay warm, inviting and as comfortable as home. They arranged for cars, porters and excursions as requested. The dream team! We loved our stay immensely and hope to be back soon! Grazie! 😃�

Great location and beautiful views!
We recently had the pleasure of staying at this villa and couldn't have made a better choice! The location of the villa was exactly where we wanted to be and the views of the sea from every patio were absolutely beautiful. The villa was very quaint and had everything we needed. Our trip was a last minute decision but Roberto was very helpful with planning transportation to and from the villa and was always quick to answer any questions. Marco and Maria were also both great and provided us with lots of useful information. We hope to visit again someday in the future!
Mark and Karen
Hi Karen, thanks so much for your testimonial. It was a pleasure to have you as guests.
I look forward you stay again at my property in a next future
All the best
This is an absolutely beautiful property! The Villa is charming and we wanted for nothing on the stay. Maria Delores and Marco prepared a beautiful meal for us one night and gave us great advise and suggestions on where to eat and things to do. The terraces are beautiful to just sit and watch the boats and activities. The villa is situated above the beach and below the street so it was very quiet. I will be back soon!
Am Amazing Villa in an Amazing City.
In reviewing a property in a vacation spot, it's important to separate the brick and mortar experience from the vacation experience. For the latter, if there is a more beautiful and more breathtaking place on Earth besides the Amalfi Coast, I am yet to hear of it. The area far exceeded my expectations many times over.
Roberto Gualtieri, the owner of the property, provided excellent service from the day we booked the villa until the day we arrived. He was always fast to respond to emails, and offered helpful tips on parking, eating, and the like. He definitely put us in a comfort zone knowing that there was a real, reachable person behind the property.
The villa is beautiful. Three floors, four bedrooms, 2 living rooms, three balconies, a kitchen. There is a lot of square footage to spread out and relax here. The rooms have A/C. The view from every balcony and slider is beyond belief. High above the impossibly blue sea, you can see all the way to Praiano and Amalfi. And the view is even more gorgeous at night. Mornings I will remember for a lifetime.
Location is central and excellent. Multiple good restaurants are a short walk; Da Vincezo, Next 2, Il Fornillo, Buca di Bacco others. The beach is just a walk down the hill about 15 minutes. Bring beach shoes!! Shopping is wonderful and everywhere. If you rent a car, there are multiple garages that are a short walk for about $20/day.
One enters the Villa via a series of cement staircases starting up on Via Pasitea 172/178. It's about 90 steps down to the front door and back up to go anywhere. If you have physical limitations that would preclude climbing stairs, you may want to look elsewhere. In fact, if you have limitations, you may want to avoid the Amalfi Coast as stair climbing is part of everything you do. Everything.
I personally believe that one would be crazy to complain about anything that happens in this beautiful place. So I won't. But I would offer these very few, simple suggestions pertaining to the villa. More and better bath towels would be a very small investment that means a lot. The matress in the top floor master suite was new but very, very hard. Locals told us it's an Italian thing. Besides that, Roberto's place is heaven on Earth.
