Truly Incredible Experience - Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most magnificent stay in this property. The photos do not even come close to doing the property justice. The attention to detail in every single corner of this home, shows the love and care for this home. The setting is superb, the home even more beautiful. Roberto the host could not have been more lovely and accommodating, and Clementina the grounds keeper brought such light into the home. She cooked for us, and made the stay even that much more touching. I could not give this property a better review. It by far surpasses the 5 star hotel options in Positano, and I look forward to staying here for many more years to come.

Dream location!

  • 5 of 5

Roberto and his crew were perfect hosts for our 5night stay. The view is more gorgeous in person and the casa is large enough for two kids to have their own room (each room is an en suite with balcony and view. One room is on bottom floor if not able to climb two steps of stairs). We arrived with 4 adults, two kids and two toddlers. The two toddlers were able to sleep on the bed with us (queen). There were lots of decorations that we had to move a bit to keep out of the toddlers way but it was easily done and still family friendly.

There are 237 steps approx to go to the beach or downtown area. The kids from ages 5 to 13 all did fine. The adults were another story but definitely do-able for people with no mobility issues.

Clementina cooked a delishes meal for us (fee plus grocery) and she was here as maid service for 4 hrs a day on behalf of Roberto. There is a washer but no dryer in the house.

If weather permits, drying outside is perfectly fine (we went in early April during shoulder season) and maid service was exceptional.

Positano had enough activities or shopping and eateries but not massive like Amalfi. Go after ferry season starts and the transport is a breeze to other islands or Amalfi cities directly out of Positano port. Can go the morning of to get tickets. Although Del Adolfo was not open in April. Strongly recommend this casa again for all ages!

Incredibly AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was exquisitely maintained and beautifully decorated. It is obvious the owner both loves his villa and having his guest enjoy it. The view from each bedroom and the patio balcony is totally breathtaking. We have been blessed to be to Italy many times. This is by far our most favorite villa in the amalfi coast.

Additionally, and most importantly, the owner provides a cleaning lady who also doubles as an incredible cook. Although we ate at many of the local restaurants ( & totally enjoyed each meal) by far our favorite dinners were those that were cooked by us by Clementina & her colleague, Pina - both of whom were incredibly accommodating, gracious and charming. No restaurant could touch the food they personally cooked for us - WE LOVED IT!!!

We are so pleased to give this villa our highest and best recommendation !!!

Amazing location! Right in the heart of Positano, walking distance to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Lucia and Floriana were awesome hosts and Clementina the house keeper baked us an amazing chocolate cake and cooked up a seafood & pasta dinner one evening. She kept the property clean and helped with our laundry. The views were stunning and the villa was very tastefully decorated and well kept. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks to Lucy and Floriana who took care of the hospitality of the guests, and in particular to Clementina who takes care of the guests with the care of a true mom of southern Italy. I am very happy that you have been well and that the house is as beautiful as in the pictures. A warm greeting,      Roberto

Incredible views

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 8 stay here in June 2017 and the villa was just beautiful. The views from the terrace are incredible. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom and the kitchen was perfect to prepare breakfasts and occasional dinners. The owners have taken great care in the design of the villa and Roberto was wonderful and responsive while booking.

A few things to note, the villa comes with daily housekeeping which is a great benefit! It's also 200 steps each way to the beaches. We didn't mind, but for some with mobility limits, this may be too much of a climb. The villa was less than 5 minutes to a grocery store and several restaurants as well.

MOST AMAZING VIEW OF POSITANO!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't describe how amazing the view is from the terrace of this beautiful casa!! The home was very tastefully decorated with museum like artifacts from the owner's world travels. We felt like we were staying in a 5-Star resort! This 3 level home was spacious and comfortable to fit our family of 7. It was in a very convenient location - within easy walking distance to the village shops & restaurants. Our host was extremely helpful - always answering us immediately with any request we had. It was a very special treat to have daily housekeeping service and change of linens by our wonderful housekeeper, Clementina, and we immediately felt like family by the sincere and attentive service she gave us. We can't say enough about Clementina's service...she was amazing! She couldn't have taken better care of us. We most definitely will return and will HIGHLY recommend this gem of a home to our friends and family. THANK YOU!!! :)
