Much left to be desired, would not stay here again. Would rate a 2 out of 5.

  • 2 of 5

Good points,

1. Location and view are great

2. Overall size of unit is good

Bad points,

1. Overall the unit is very tired, furniture is garage sale at best and quite worn, patio cover falling apart, lighting is terrible and to make it worse large % of light bulbs are out and need replacement.

2. 2 of 3 toilets did not flush properly, asked owner for repair and repairman came and did nothing.

3 Very hot, no air conditioning.

4. There is a bar directly below the unit, noise and partying until as late as 4AM.

5. Check in person spoke no English which left us in the dark on any questions we had, we never saw the owner or anyone else.

5. No instructions there on anything like appliance operation, garbage PU, etc.

We would not stay here again.

Stunning location

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the standard of the property. Although ideally situated with amazing views the property was old, tired and needed attention.

The kitchen was ill equipped, there was not enough seating (table/chairs for 4) on the balcony. Curtains were falling off, the bathrooms constantly smelt and the whole place needed a good clean. Maybe the owner was having a problem with the housekeeper, but we thought this was not acceptable.

We have travelled extensively and stayed in many privately owned property and this was by far the most disappointing.

On the plus side the location is excellent.

Brilliant apartment in stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

The view is beyond words. I stayed for 8 nights with my young family. We used the private stairs many times to access the beach and spent hours playing in the water. The apartment was very well equipped and has three bathrooms. Paolo' apartment in Positano should be on everyone's travel Wishlist.

Great Location & Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 nights in the villa. It is convenient to the center of Positano, and the private stairway to the beach is an added bonus {lots of steps, but that's expected in Positano}. The flat has amazing views of the Mediterranean from most every room as well as an incredible terrace. The only improvement would be the addition of a table and chairs on the terrace - perfect for that morning cup of coffee and nighttime views! We loved our stay and we're sad to leave!

the best place to stay in Positano!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect! The absolute best location in Positano-overlooking the beach with a stunning view and close to the shops, restaurants, beach and the bus stop. There are private steps down to the beach and from the street down to the villa is not that many steps-easily managed. There is a terrace all around so two of the bedrooms and the living room open on to the terrace and a view of the water. The beds are comfortable. There are 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The wi-fi works great. The owner, Paolo, responded quickly to all inquires. He even recommended a driver for transportation to and from Naples who proved to be very reliable. I would recommend staying in Positano instead of Amalfi or Sorrento. Its so lovely and picturesque and very easy to travel to the other sites by bus or boat. It was a magical week on the Amalfi coast. I hope to return and stay here again! Thank you Paolo!

Beautiful Location overlooking the harbor and beach

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the lower hills of Positano. Spectacular views of the harbor, beach and opposite hill is Positano. It was a bit difficult to find at first, but the owner was very responsive and helpful with answering questions. A great place for a couple traveling together or a family. Very convenient to local and Amalfi Coast bus stops.
