Customer Reviews

Overall:
My family really enjoyed the experience. The pool was wonderful as well as the rest of the outdoor areas. The villa itself was as described and very luxurious. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
The property is gorgeous. Plenty of room. Good cooking facilities, good bathrooms. Very comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
The cleaning schedule of tues and thurs for 3-4 hours felt intrusive and not needed. Fresh towels and tidying the kitchen would have been enough. The location is difficult if you are relying on public transportation. The taxis are very expensive.
Surrounding Area:
The views from the villa were awesome.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We walked to Praiano, the nearest town, a few times. There was always a lot of speeding cars on the road so it felt a little dangerous, especially when the tour buses went by.
Tips or Restaurants:
Think about doing food shopping in Sorrento. The villa has a great kitchen but the markets in the area don't have everything you need. We did a very last minute shop at the supermarket there after it was suggested by the owners to do so, but it would have been better if we knew to plan for this.
Directions:
We took the bus from Sorrento which was very crowded and we couldn't spot all the landmarks specified in the arrival instructions. The bus drivers are no help at all. We used our phones to help guide us, but service was spotty due to the high cliffs.
Check In Out:
The actual check in and out were fine.

Mary, October

Overall:
Absolutely amazing. Had a fabulous time.
Enjoyed Most:
Peace and quiet and the pool, without this to cool down it would have been awfully hot! The owners, they looked after us so well and nothing was too much trouble.
Enjoyed Least:
The vegetation around the property is growing, the view we most enjoy is the sea. The trees below on the next level are growing and the grapevine at the top of the verandah is growing, these both will eventually impede the view of the sea.
Surrounding Area:
The best area to be in, Positano one way about 6 minutes by car and Praiano the other way about the same distance by car. Can walk to a couple of the local hotels but other than that you will need a car or a local taxi.
Nearby Events or Locales:
See above. Lots of nice restaurants to eat in.
Tips or Restaurants:
Lots of Areogard (mosquito spray!)
Directions:
The directions were good, we arranged a pickup from the airport. We did hire a car but we were travelling and meeting family there so coming from two different countries. There is nowhere to park on the Amalfi coast so even though you might have a car, being able to use it and park it is another thing!
Check In Out:
Easy, Nello was not available as we arrived earlier than expected, however, his brother checked us in with Rosa, very easy and welcoming.

Marina, September

Overall:
We had an amazing vacation and stay at Villa Veduta... absolutely perfetto!!!
Enjoyed Most:
The gorgeous grounds and views... and we loved the warmth and inviting decor of the house.
Enjoyed Least:
NOTHING... loved everything!
Surrounding Area:
Great proximity to Positano and Amalfi ... enjoyed great restaurants in Praiano. Note that some restaurants will even send a car and/or deliver! .
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano... not walking distance... short car/taxi ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
Best restaurant- Ristorante Franchino (Praiano); Next 2 - Positano; Da Vincenzo- Positano; Al Palazzo - Positano. If you don't want to wait for buses (which get very crowded) taxi service to Positano is about 35 Euros.
Directions:
Used a GPS ... Property manager was waiting at the gate upon our arrival.
Check In Out:
We cannot say enough about our property manager/contact. He warmly welcomed us. He provided us with information regarding restaurants, things to do in the area and where to shop. He arranged for us to have a chef (his uncle) come and do a cooking class for us that we thoroughly enjoyed. Loved our conversations with Nello over wine and coffee!! Check in and check out a breeze!!!

Paul, August

Overall:
Amazing, so relaxing and our host did everything possible to make this the best vacation ever!
Enjoyed Most:
The pool, the view, the location. It was perfectly quiet and peaceful but close to town.
Enjoyed Least:
The driveway. It's very steep and it took a series of three point turns to turn around in the driveway to leave.
Surrounding Area:
Hotel nearby had great food; takeaway restaurants delivered with no issues.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano - no town is within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Small car. Don't eat at Next2 in Positano - high priced and snobby service. Go to Adolfo for lunch (boat leaves from Positano beach front - casual but good food, fun atmosphere). Beaches are rocky so plan footwear accordingly.
Directions:
No trouble finding property.
Check In Out:
Nello was wonderful, no issues with check in or out.

Il Pirata at Marina di Praia. Bring food.

Dany, July

Overall:
A great experience, very memorable. Reception was great. Owner took lots of time to explain all the amenities and services around the villa. Made regular visits to check if all was going well. The cleaning service was more than expected. A family proud of their villa.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and outside area. The terraces were fabulous. The pool was a sanctuary.
Enjoyed Least:
The BBQ was charcoal which we did not expect; charcoal had to be purchased.
Surrounding Area:
The location of the villa between Praiano and Positano is perfect. The local bus service between these towns and the SITA bus service to Amalfi is good. Marina di Praia is a heaven.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano. Not walking distance. Rent a scooter is good idea or take the local bus.
Tips or Restaurants:
LaMoressa restaurant in Praiano. They will pick you up at the villa and return you home. Il Pirata bar/restaurant at Marina di Praia is terrific.
Directions:
Directions are perfect.
Check In Out:
Bring groceries when you arrive. Fridge is large. Cleaning service is amazing. All was terrific.

Patricia, July

Overall:
Villa Veduta was so beautiful and in person it was nicer than we even expected!
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the grounds were amazing!!
Enjoyed Least:
The driveway is beautiful but very tricky to pull in and out of and the roads on Amalfi can be dangerous!
Surrounding Area:
The landscaping and the beautiful fruit trees and grape vines were just so beautiful!! And to see the fresh lemon trees was perfect.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano is beautiful and has so many restaurants and shops and the beaches are so nice.
Tips or Restaurants:
Definitely try the tours we did, as they were perfect. We also took a boat over to Capri and than took 2 small boats to the Blue Grotto. The Blue Grotto was beautiful but very commercialized and Capri was not nice and the people were rude. So I would suggest if you want to see the Blue Grotto take a boat over and enjoy but come right back. I wouldn't waste any time on Capri; it's way nicer to stay in Positano.
Check In Out:
It was all good.

Maria, July

Overall:
This is an unbelievably beautiful property. Host Nella was fantastic and over the top accommodating. Nella went overboard to make sure we were all happy.
Enjoyed Most:
The whole place was beautiful from the views to the home itself.
Enjoyed Least:
Forget the bus; it was always full. Set up car service to pick you up.
Surrounding Area:
Views and hotel around corner had wonderful restaurant with stunning views of Positano. Must when getting dark to fully appreciate.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Right between Positano and Praiano. Can't walk to store or town. So close but yet so far away...once there you will see what I mean.
Tips or Restaurants:
Hotel is 5 minute walk away and views and food are fantastic. Go grocery shopping before arriving. No stores close by. Nella, the host, will help out more than you need but would be nice to have stuff when you arrive.
Directions:
All good
Check In Out:
Everything was perfect. Would not change anything.

FRANK, June

Overall:
We loved this villa, it was large and spacious with superb views. The outdoor terraces were exactly what we wanted from a holiday on the Amalfi Coast
Enjoyed Most:
The views and serenity.
Enjoyed Least:
The bathrooms were a little inconvenient, one upstairs with the bedrooms, and the other two downstairs.
Surrounding Area:
We loved the grounds of the villa, the trees and the sound of the birds, so peaceful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We walked to Praiano each day, around 6ks in full, great way to compensate for the mountains of food we ate.
Tips or Restaurants:
Shopping for food supplies can be a little inconvenient as it is not always easy to find parking, but if you plan and shop well for your entire stay there will be no problems. Lots of good restaurants, with great food and view. We loved Il Pino
Directions:
We had no problem finding the property, we used a GPS.
Check In Out:
Nello, our key holder was also the son of the owner - he was a delight, and extremely helpful.

Anne, May

Overall:
Thoroughly happy and pleased with everything.
Enjoyed Most:
Very clean, spacious, views and comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
Entrance from the road was very tight. Would advise a small car only.
Surrounding Area:
All amenities were very close, restaurants were good, and people were all very welcoming. Views were spectacular
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano was the nearest town--a 5-minute drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
Rent a small car as the drive entrance is very tight. Nino's restaurant in Praiano was the best. The Spa/hotel opposite the rear of the property is very nice and just a couple of minutes walk. Great food and bar, plus spa treatments.

Roy, May

Overall:
The property was absolutely gorgeous. The owner went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was amazing! It was very well kept. It was absolutely peaceful.
Surrounding Area:
The town of Praiano had some cute restaurants that would pick us up at the villa which was nice.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Nearest small town was Praiano. You could walk but there are no sidewalks, so we didn't
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa is equipped with WiFi and pool towels. We ate at a lot of good restaurants. The host gave us the names when we got there.
Directions:
The directions were fine. Plus the owner met us right away to let us in the gate. We also rented a GPS through the car rental company. That was a waste of money as it didn't work correctly. We used our phone and it worked best (google maps).
Check In Out:
Check in was great. The owner took us to the supermarket and he was there very early in the morning for check out. None of it was a problem.
