As we arrived Mena, the housekeeper, greeted us and assisted us with our bags. She showed us into the apt and pointed out anything we would need to know. Fresh fruit was there for us and the AC was a pleasure. The apt as exactly as described and perfect for my husband and I. Just outside the sliding glass door is an amazing view of Positano. The apt is in a great location with a staircase, not too far from the entrance, that brings you in the heart of Positano and close to the beach. We felt and comfortable and safe throughout our visit. The apt was clean and well maintained. This was a great experience which I would def recommend.
My husband and I stayed here in July for 3 nights. Rafaella's apartment was in an excellent location. We truly could not have picked a better spot- walking distance to everything. She responded in a very timely manner to my questions over Airbnb. The view from the balcony is even better than the photos... can not say enough about the view! The bed is hard as previous reviewers mention... but that really didn't bother us that much. The only problem we had that was somewhat annoying.. was ants. They were in the bathroom when we arrived, but Mena took care of them immediately. Mena, by the way, does not speak English- but she is very sweet and tries her best to be very helpful. The third day of our trip the ants came back and they were in the sleeping area. Rafaella did offer to come to the apartment in the middle of the night, but we did our best to kill them all ourselves. We didn't feel it was necessary to ask her to do that. The price was fair for the location but the ants were a bit frustrating. I understand that this is in an issues in many of the apartments in Positano, so I do not know that it is fair to blame anyone.
When deciding to go to the Amalfi Coast, we had no idea which part to choose from. After a bit of research, it seemed Positano would be best suited to us and when arriving, we were right!!!!
Positano has got to be hands down the most beatiful and magical place we had ever been to. On arriving to the apartment, based on location alone, we knew we had been lucky! Right bang in the middle of Positano, the beach and restaurants all clustered around us, we felt very lucky to have chosen such a great location!
Then we entered the apartment and ...wow!!! It had such a positive ambience, the interior is really cute and full of character. The sea view from the terrace is breathtaking and just to the right, you can see all the gorgeous houses built into the hillsides.
On the first night, my boyfriend proposed to me on the terrace of the apartment. It's one of those places that really is special enough to pop the question!
For me and my fiancé, we can honestly say that this apartment is one of the most magical places we've ever stayed
Raffaella's apartment was exactly as described, comfortable and in a perfect location to access Positano.
There was good restaurants close by and the hotel is located next to 2 of Positano's premier hotels.
Communication with Rafaella was clear and prompt. I felt she did as much as possible to ensure all required information was communicated.
Highly recommended Villa.
Positano is beautiful! We took the ferry from Salerno to Positano after visiting Rome. One key piece of advice: pack light! Our luggage had bottles of wine and olive oil in them and it was a struggle getting to this apartment with such a heavy bag! There are lots of stairs to climb up from the beach level. This apartment is in a prime location! We had some trouble finding it and the host at Le Sirenuse hotel which is right next to the apartment got on the phone with Mena and helped us locate the apartment! Le sirenuse was very helpful the entire time. They would call us cabs etc. The apartment was adorable and perfect for my best friend and I. It's small but the only time we spent there was to sleep and get ready. The view is absolutely perfect... The pictures do not do it justice. Unfortunately the air conditioner stopped working the first day and was not repaired at all for our four day stay because it was the weekend. It was mid July and it was HOT. One other thing is there were a ton of ants! In the bed and in the bedroom. Raffaella did warn me about this but we would wake up in the night with ants on us! Other than those mishaps this apartment is perfectly located. Bruno restaurant is right above it and I highly recommend eating there. Also Franco's bar is right next door and we really enjoyed stopping here for drinks before or after dinner. Also there is a lovely ceramics shop of you walk from the apartment past Bruno's towards the bus stop called ceramiche parlato Positano. I highly suggest shopping here for ceramics. They make everything on their own right there in the shop. Most of the other shops we passed through all had the same stuff. This shop was different. In conclusion we had an amazing time at this apartment In Positano and despite the problems with the air conditioning and ants I would recommend someone to stay here! Can't say enough how great of a location it is!!! Just use le sirenuse as your home base for cabs and trolley services to pick you up.... They didn't mind at all!
I stayed there with my girlfriend for four nights and had an amazing experience. The location is perfect right near the Main Street and 5 minutes to the beach. There's definitely a lot of steps (relative to what I'm used to) but relative to the rest of Positano the walk to the beach is a breeze. Raffaella (owner) and Mena (who greets you) were both great and were easy to get ahold when we had any questions. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family! Especially considering that hotel rooms are easily twice as expensive.
Some pros and cons are below (although none of the cons would keep me from staying here again!)
-incredible view (pictures do not do it justice)
-the hot water heater is small and erratic at times, so the showers have to be quick!
-lack of storage (one small dresser, and closet)
-give Mena a heads up when your close, note that she speaks very little English so I use google translate to text her in Italian
-there are no beach towels in the apartment (but you can rent some on the beach for 5 euros)
-Casa E Botega is the best breakfast in town
-Next2 was where we went to our fancy dinner, owned by the same woman as Casa E Botega. Fresh, upscale food but not as stuffy/fancy as other places
-Music On The Rocks is a pretty ridiculous club/bar worth checking out. Just go, trust me. But don't till midnight or later
Where do I even start. There are no pictures that do this place justice. It is perfectly perched on the hill with an astonishing view! It was very clean and perfectly located. The hostess was very welcoming upon my arrival and even met me earlier than the scheduled check in time due to a prior engagement I had scheduled. It is located next to or within a 5-10 minute walk of all the restaurants and shops you could want. Raffaella provides a great list of suggested places to visit. I would not hestitate to stay here again!
