About The Experience
Here is a charming Amalfi Coast apartment rental, ideal for friends traveling together or a couple seeking a romantic getaway. The views of Positano and the Mediterranean Sea below this Positano rental are unmatched. Light and airy inside, with a wonderful terrace outside for relaxing and dining, this Amalfi Coast vacation apartment is a good choice for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
Location Description

A 15 minute walk from this villa will take you down to the center of Positano; it is 10 minutes more to the main beach, "Spiaggia Grande." From the street level (104 steps downhill from the apartment), a short bus ride takes guests to the top of the village every 15 minutes, and from there busses leave to various towns. To the right of the main beach numerous ferries and hydrofoils leave daily between Positano and Capri (50 min), Naples (50 min), Amalfi (30 min), and Salerno (30 min). Within a few minutes walk there is a variety of shops, bars, internationally known boutiques, and various restaurants. Guests can use a payable car park 100 meters from street level (arrange at time of booking). Blue SITA busses cost about 1-2 euros, depending on destination. Stops are marked with a blue and white SITA sign. The small internal bus (orange mini-bus) of Positano is marked by a brown FERMATA sign. Driving times are: Ravello to Amalfi, 15 minutes; Amalfi to Positano, 30 minutes; Positano to Sorrento, 35 minutes.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

The interior is airy and the furnishings are very comfortable.

There is a fully equipped kitchen (with fridge, oven, and gas stove) with a dining area, and a sitting room with a double sofa bed (suitable for one).

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Our overall experience was magical! RentVillas.com offered outstanding customer service. Each player in the experience was professional, on time and beyond welcoming. Destiny from RentVillas was always on top of all aspects of our requirements. Patricia who picked us up at the airport was punctual and beyond personable. Her boss Fabio was also very on top of things. We requested Patricia several times to drive us to Pompeii and Sorrento along with Naples. Patricia added to our fantastic experience. Giovanni and Rita the owners of the villa welcomed us like we were family. Philamina the key holder and Salvatore who carried our luggage up 104 steps were both delightful and amazing to deal with. Antonietta, who was our villa contact, was always available and helpful. There was not one aspect of our Positano stay that we did not LOVE!
Enjoyed Most:
The view the owners and the amazing location. Property was immaculately clean. It was like being home!
Enjoyed Least:
There was nothing to not like! Ok, so the 104 steps were not the most fun, but the exercise was fantastic. We could eat as much as we wanted and not gain an ounce. That was a huge plus!!!!
Surrounding Area:
The restaurants, shopping, beach, ferries, markets and pharmacy were all inviting and convenient. We travel a great deal and I must say Positano was the most beautiful, breathtaking place I have been to.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We stayed in Positiano. Nothing outside of that was in walking distance. The ferries made traveling very convenient. Went to Capri, Amalfi, Ravello, Sorento, Salerno!
Tips or Restaurants:
Things to bring: bathing bar soap, umbrella, rain jacket, shoes that you can walk for miles in. Restaurants Baca Di Bucco, Di Vencenza, Il Fiornillo, Chez Black
Directions:
Always hire a driver to take you to the property. Much easier!
Check In Out:

Overall:
A comfortable, relaxing week, with gorgeous views of the water and graceful accommodations.
Enjoyed Most:
Terrace. View. Tiled floors everyplace. Cool rooms (never even turned on AC, in 75+ degree weather) and pleasant interior design. Comfortable bed and living room furniture. Two charming and functional baths. Washing machine. Having to walk and climb steps every day. Landlords nearby, friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed Least:
Smallish kitchen. Artificial flowers. Steps made carrying a lot of luggage in and out a challenge. Noisy machinery nearby at night. Difficult walking in Positano traffic, narrow streets. Town overrun with tourists, even in May, crowded, sundress and souvenir shops dominating downtown.
Surrounding Area:
Excellent restaurants with beautiful views. Friendly people in markets. Gorgeous views. Beach.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano. Yes. Lots of steps, but we were prepared for this.
Directions:
We had no trouble finding the property. Used a car service from Naples airport.
Check In Out:
Filomena was very nice and full of good information when she arrived, and she was also very accommodating re departure.
