(Text automatically translated) In the center of Cava dei Tirreni, in an old building starting 900. The building has been the subject of a recent restoration efforts with the installation of the elevator for easy access. Our facility is the perfect place to spend their holidays; Cava de 'Tirreni is the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. It is located 45 km from Capodichino Airport Salerno (8 km). It is 22 km from Amalfi, 35 km from Positano, 28 km from Ravello, 50 km from Paestum. The sea is at 2.5 km in Vietri. It has a strategic position between the Amalfi Coast and the most important archaeological sites and landscape Campania: Naples, Capri, Pompeii, Paestum, Herculaneum, etc.. In the immediate vicinity you can stroll through the old town and especially in the "Borgo Scacciaventi" characterized by arcades that welcome places where you can enjoy typical dishes of Bell or have a drink in the numerous bars and pubs.

Clean, comfortable, spacious and archectually esthetic. Close to everything
Hosts were thoughtful and quick to respond.
A modern apartment close to the coast away from the crowds.
This apartment was well appointed and perfect for our 2 families to stay very comfortably for a few days to explore the Amalfi Coast. Riccardo was an exceptional host and his communication was constant right from the time we booked throughout our stay. Always available for recommendations and questions. We are all non smokers and it was important for us to have a clean environment for our children which this space provided. The bedrooms were a good size with King beds and the living space and kitchen was great for us to enjoy our evenings after a long day of adventure. Shops and restaurants close by as well as a parking garage option should you choose. The little town of Cava de’ Tirreni was not very touristy which was an appreciated respite after days on the coast.
Great place to stay!!!
We stayed at Riccardo's place and it was nothing short of awesome! The location is close to the train station, shops, and center of town. The large 3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment is spacious and immaculate. The views from the apartment are stunning! Riccardo was very helpful at giving us recommendations for local restaurants and responded to our needs quickly. I will be back! Thank you Riccardo for a great experience!
Modern apartment near bus and train
The apartment was large, clean and very modern. Cava dei Tirreni was great location to visit the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. The train station is just down the street. We took the 15 minute train to Salerno then the ferry to Amalfi. We then took the bus back. On Saturday night the town was busy with lots of local people socializing and enjoying their children. No cars were allowed downtown which is an easy walk from the apartment. We found a great bakery which was open late into the evening. The host was available if needed.
MONEY DOWN THE DRAIN
I've been using VBRO for over 20 years to travel all over the world. I am familiar with the reservation process, liaising with owners prior to arrival, and most importantly getting what you pay for.
To anyone who is considering renting this property please be advised; the images are not an accurate representation of the apartment. It is not as bright as it appears, the sofa's were wrapped in raggedy blankets and the apartment looks like a run down version of what's posted. The posting says "RESTORATION" - the building is old and run down down, plain and simple. I entered a vestibule with graffiti and to my dismay ashtrays on hallway sills. Although, I was told smoking is only allowed in the hallways, it is inevitable that it permeates the apartments in the building and IT DID. The posting also did not state that this is a smoking building which clearly should be stated under property description.
WHY is this such a problem? I paid to stay in a place that was unlivable for me as I am severely asthmatic. Had I Had this information, I would have booked elsewhere. I spent no more that 10 minutes in this dingy apartment before calling the owner to inform him that I would not be staying. I did not travel all the way from New York to spend a week in physical discomfort. I asked for a portion of the money back who wouldn't if you didn't even stay an hour???? When I expressed how I felt about the apartment the owner became belligerent, and began personally insulting me asking me what kind of Italian am I. If I could post a pic of the WhatsApp exchange, you will think twice before booking here. I contacted VRBO to resolve this but they were of no help.
Also FYI - Sorrento was an hour way and $130 cab ride., where I ultimately booked a hotel. This place is not the gateway to the Amalfi coast by any means. I've been home for over a week and have debated on leaving this review as I do not wish to interfere with anyone's livelihood, however, this owner has a severe lack of integrity in not returning even a portion of the cost of the stay.. To add insult to injury I was offered tours at a discounted rate. So, my money just went down the drain and then he turned around and asked for more?
I don't know what he's doing/offering to guests to get these glowing reviews but this place is far from glowing.
I am immensely appalled by what I read from this review,
I do this job with love and passion for years and how they can abide the many other reviews on the site the apartment is exactly like in the picture.
My experience with these guests was truly indescribable and confirms this mere attempt to denigrate my property and the beautiful city in which I live.
There is not a single point in their review that reflects the truth and I can show it:
inside the apartment smoking is strictly prohibited as indicated in all the rooms in the kitchen and living room, I often host families with children I could never allow smokers to transgress this rule, for them I have equipped an area outside the ' apartment with a bench and an ashtray near a window just to avoid problems, I do not smoke and I am extremely annoyed by the smell of smoke (which there has never been an excuse).
To their request for reimbursement or peacefully made the cancellation policies that do not provide compensation on the day of check-in.
These policies had been accepted by them at the time of the reservation which took place six months earlier.
I received further damage from this booking as the Ladies requested a refund from the bank requesting a payment cancellation for this reservation.
The distance from the Amalfi Coast is correctly described in the listing, public transportation is very close, the train station is 500mt. and that of buses at 20m. I think this is a strong point because you can easily visit all the beauties of the region in a very short time.
I really do not know what I could do more than what I did to reassure the two ladies, I'm really sorry and I do not deserve to receive such hurdles.
I remain at your disposal for any clarifications

Great stay in Cava
My family and I stayed at the apartment for 4 nights. I wish we had more time. The apartment was perfect and clean and even better than the pictures. The town of Cava was a wonderful surprise. Much different that your typical tourist trap town. Strolling the streets during the evening, eating a great dinner, followed by a drink at one of the local bars was truly enjoyable. It was also a great place to use for day trips to Amalfi, Pompeii, and Sorrento.
