Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was pure magic. Peaceful, gorgeous views, refreshing pool, air conditioned rooms, full kitchen with every amenity one could want.
Enjoyed Most:
That's tough to pick! There are so many wonderful things, however I think Nello was our favorite. We truly enjoyed his visits, and not just for the wine he brought over on his scooter! He's a great host and he made us feel perfectly at home.
Enjoyed Least:
Maybe getting into the driveway from the narrow road, but it wasn't that bad.
Surrounding Area:
I enjoyed that we could just walk into Praiano and behold the gorgeous views from the road. We took the steps down to One Fire Beach and ate at the restaurant just above. Then we took a water taxi into Praiano and got to see the area from the water. It is all divine!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano, and yes!
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring bug spray (depending on time of year) and get groceries in Sorrento on your way there. The grocery store in town is rather small and was picked through when we went. Also, ask Nello for wine suggestions! His were spot-on.
Directions:
I suggest using Google Maps, only. The directions otherwise were perfect. I mapped it out on my computer before hand so I could visually recognize the gate from the road as it's a bit hard to see if you're not avidly looking.
Check In Out:
Nope! It was all so perfect and easy and fun!

Katie, September

Overall:
OUTSTANDING!! The Villa was everything described on the RentVilla site and more!!! You will never find a better host than Nello!!
Enjoyed Most:
WOW!! The Villa and grounds were immaculate in every way... clean, spacious, beautiful, colorful, the view, every room had its own air-conditioning and privacy and opened to the ocean etc. We ate most of our meals on the veranda off the kitchen overlooking the ocean. Literally across the street from the bus stop.
Surrounding Area:
The hillside homes, the easy access via bus to adjacent small towns and connection to the trains.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Walking distance is relative to the renter--but would not recommend walking along the narrow roads.
Tips or Restaurants:
Restaurants recommended by Nello were excellent!! Do stop and buy groceries before going to the Villa if you do not have your own transportation.
Directions:
We hired a driver who picked us up at the airport in Naples and took us directly to the Villa. We utilized the local buses for most of our day trips to Positano and Amalfi and other towns. Bus fare is very reasonable at 2.40 euros per person each way.
Check In Out:
We believe that Nello has the check in and check out process perfected. Nello did not miss a beat and was always available by phone to assist. He is an incredible people person who thrives on Service to his clients.

Steven, June

Overall:
Wonderful! It was situated in the perfect spot and the view was spectacular!
Enjoyed Most:
The quietness and the view. After a day of visiting Capri or Positano and Amalfi to come to a place of solitude was very nice. It was situated in the perfect spot. Positano was 8 minutes away by car and most days we went into Positano to shop or wander around and have lunch.
Enjoyed Least:
I cannot think of a thing I did not like. There was a lot of traffic around the area but other than that I liked everything.
Surrounding Area:
I enjoyed that Positano or Amalifi was not far away. We did not want to spend a lot of time in a car so this was the perfect spot.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano was the nearest town but it was not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
On our way to the house we stopped in Sorrento to grocery shop but Praiano has quite a few little grocery stores which is only about 10 minutes away. There are a number of wonderful restaurants in Positano and cafes for brunch.
Directions:
We did not drive to the property as we used Persico Car Service, referred by RentVillas, which was wonderful. They were reliable and on time and they picked us up at the Naples train station.
Check In Out:
No Nello was very informative and the process was very quick. Nello also took us into town one day. It was a pleasure to meet him.

MOLLY , April

Overall:
The villa exceeded our expectations and was perfect to relax and enjoy the fabulous views. The villa was very close to Positano and Praiano making it very convenient. We purposely didn't rent a car as it's more trouble than it's worth on the Amalfi Coast and used a care service for transfers and a nice tour of the coast. Nello did a great job recommending local restaurants. La Maressa Italian Bistro was our go to spot. The villa is quiet, secluded and romantic with the most amazing views.
Enjoyed Most:
The convenient location and absolutely perfect views.
Enjoyed Least:
Washer but no dryer. In this part of Italy it is typical to dry clothes outdoors and the villa was equipped with folding racks to allow this.
Surrounding Area:
The villa was very convenient to Positano and was a very short taxi ride making it very easy to get back and for to the villa. The location just outside Praiano, which was not as busy as Positano made it perfect for dinner in the evenings when not cooking in the villa which was perfectly equipped.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano was the closest town. We typically called a local taxi which only took 5 minutes, also some restaurants will pick you up at the villa and bring you back after dinner. We did walk back to the Villa one day after a late lunch at La Maressa Bistro and it was a nice walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa is very well equipped and we did not find it missing anything. Not unique to the villa but my wife did find it odd that most locations did not have wash cloths, so you might want throw a couple in your bag. La Maressa Italian Bistro was great for both lunch or a nice dinner and the owner also owns the market where you can get everything you need for the villa. Also the fact they would come pick us up at the villa and bring us back after dinner was fantastic. We arrived on Friday afternoon and stayed at San Pietro di Positano, an absolutely beautiful 5 star hotel. Drinks on the patio at sunset with absolutely one of the best views of Positano, before dinner at the michelin star restaurant was perfect. Everyone makes you feel like family.
Directions:
We arrived at Naples via the high speed train and had a car meet us and bring us to the San Pietro. The following day the driver took us on a tour of the Amalfi coast before bringing us to the villa to meet Nello and check in. My car service called Nello ahead of time and coordinated our arrival and assisted getting all our luggage into the villa. So, arriving was very easy, and the villa is located right on the main road between Positano and Praiano so it is not difficult to get to.
Check In Out:
Nello checked us in and was fabulous. He brought a homemade lemon cake and insisted on running us up to the market to do some quick shopping. The check out was also very easy and again Nello was fantastic.

Raylene, April

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.

Tina , July

Overall:
Marvelous. Beyond our expectations.

Nothing.
Surrounding Area:
Location was perfect and the views were exquisite.

Praiano; not walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Il Pirata at Marina di Praia. Bring food.
Directions:
Perfect directions.
Check In Out:
Very well received.

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.
