Ciao a Tutti ,sono Gippy e vi aspetto per trascorrere una bella vacanza a Positano !! )))
My friends and I stayed at Gippy's place for a couple days and had the best time! He was great with communicating early on. He was exactly like other described him!! Fun-loving, happy, (email hidden)e list goes on and on! Breakfast on the terrace every morning! He even set up a day trip to Capri for us! He graciously offered a ride down to the boat when I hurt my foot! (Thanks again!!!) I highly recommend staying here. It is a bit farther from the beach but there are buses and it's so nice to walk down to see all the shops along the way! Gippy suggested many great restaurants and many had a discount if you mentioned you stayed at his place! I will return to Gippy's place when I come back to Positano! An incredible time was had by all of us!!!!
Great experience with Gippy and his residence in Positano. The rooms were large and clean and had a great view of the city and the ocean from the private patio. The rooms are much bigger and nicer than appears in the photos. We were very pleased with the assistance Gippy provided us in arranging transportation from Naples. In all respects, Gippy was an excellent host and has excellent advice on how to best enjoy the town and the 4 days we spent there were comfortable, fun and memorable. We just returned from a 21 day trip throughout Italy, and our stay with Gippy was one of our the highlights of the trip. We loved the experience, appreciated Gippy, and we will return! 5 stars for the host, the accommodations and the value.
We loved our stay at Venus Inn. Gippy was very nice and helpful. The room was very nice, clean and large. the balcony was perfect to relax and enjoy the view. I will stay there again.
Thank you for a lovely stay, ideal location, near to the good restaurants higher up in town.
Very friendly and helpful host!
Gippy lives up to all the reviews that I had read about him: friendly, helpful and known by everyone. The accommodation was very good- lots of stairs but that is Positano. The location was excellent and only 15 minute walk downtown, literally. For niello beach was cheaper than the main beach but watch the 450 steps coming back up. A walk around via the main beach and up the road is an easier option on the thigh.
We loved Gippy and Gippy's place. The location is perfect! We would not hesitate recommending Gippy's to family and friends and we'd love to come back. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. It is simple. And it's a little plain looking in the room - but who goes to Positano to stay inside! A little tip, definitely go to the restaurant - just around the corner that Gippy recommends. It's excellent. Also, the little beach is much better than the main beach. Walk down the steps to the beach - and if you use the little blue and white beach bar and chairs you can Cath their free water taxi back to the main beach in the afternoon and then catch the bus back up the hill. Thanks for everything Gippy! We loved it!
What a great gem! My niece and I stayed here in May 2013 and Gippy was a fantastic host! He had breakfast every morning on the balcony overlooking Positano or would deliver it to your room. We even had our own private balcony and separate rooms which was really great! He was helpful, friendly, and stopped by daily to make sure we had everything we needed. The room was clean and had its own kitchenette and refrigerator which was helpful. The beach is just a few steps down and the town of Positano is like heaven! We loved it so much, we will be back again every year! Thank you Gippy for being such a wonderful host!
This B&B is awesome! Located in an ideal and incredibly beautiful piece of the Amalfi coast, this is your best option. For a change the online pictures didn't actually give justice to the accommodation. I couldn't help but be blown away by the view from our balcony every morning. Gippy is helpful, funny and welcoming! Problem is, once you arrive, you won't want to leave :)
Had a great stay with Gippy in Positano - great location and very helpful host.
Our trip to Positano, and our stay at B&B Venus, could not have gone any better. Gippy was a great host, and met us at the Grotto Fornillo located on the main road running through Positano, and walked us about 100 ft down a path off the road to the Venus Inn.
The room was perfect for our needs - full bed, bathroom, balcony with 2 chairs and a great view. There are only 3 rooms, and all of them have a little private balcony with a great view of one of Positano's 2 valleys. There was no kitchen or anything, but we had no need for one. There is also a larger communal balcony on which to eat breakfast in the morning or chat in the evening with Gippy and other guests.
Breakfast was from 8:30-9:30 each morning, and again was perfect for our needs - don't expect a big American breakfast, but rather some bread and jam, and a cappuccino.
The beach was (we counted) almost exactly 400 stairs away. Not too bad going down, a bit tiresome coming back up. This takes you to Fornillo beach, which is not the Main Beach. We preferred Fornillo, which is smaller and more quiet. There is an internal bus that will take you to the main beach, but we never bothered. Down at the beach are a few beach bars with some drinks and small food menus, which treated us well.
Walking past Grotto Fornillo on the main road about 10 or 15 minutes, you get to the main drag of Positano, full of shops and restaurants. There are also many restaurants within 2-5 minute walk from the Venus; we ate at several of them, and all were good.
The Venus is not a luxury hotel, but we weren't looking for one. It's a very reasonable and well kept B&B in a great location, located close to both shopping & eating as well as the beach. Gippy was a great host, happy to help with anything we needed.
We would highly recommend, and would stay again if returning to Positano.
