Beautiful view and garden terrace
The view is amazing and the garden in front with the lemon tree was a treat. We enjoyed the home comforts in the apartment, such as an espresso machine! Rosa and her family were so nice and they baked a welcome cake for my two young sons when we arrived. It was delicious and such an unexpected treat after a long drive! It's hard to beat a spot with a view and parking in this area. Two couples or small families could easily share this space. We would come back again!

Quiet, beautiful hotel on the hill
The hotel is off the main road and away from the congestion that happens in other tourist towns along the Amalfi Coast. It takes a short little hike up a hill; however, it is close to the bus stop. There is a little grocery store at the bottom of the hill that has just about anything you need. Rosa was wonderful and very helpful when it came to figuring out the bus and ferry schedules.

beautiful views, wonderful owner!
Rosa absolutely made this stay wonderful. We would have been lost without her. She helped us so many times making travel arrangements, figuring out the buses, helping us when our daughter lost her purse at a restaurant... And the property was the largest we stayed in while in Italy. The apartment was adorable, clean, and spacious. The market just below the apartment was well stocked, and very kind/friendly. This is a beautiful place, but requires riding a bus to get pretty much anywhere. During the busy summer months, this special area is VERY busy. Be prepared to ride buses early in the morning to get to Amalfi or anywhere and if you don't catch the early buses, you most likely will not be able to get on the bus as they are full, full, full. The local communities have hired smaller shuttles on the weekends in the summer to run routes specifically to address some of this, so they are trying very hard to help visitors get around.

Clean, comfortable, beautiful ocean views
Great location, in quiet town between more tourist areas. Unit is spacious, clean, and lends well to families. Great side for making meals and enjoying time viewing sunny days on the patio, under the orange trees! Grocery store, pharmacy, emergency clinic, several excellent restaurants within a short walk. Great hosts who can also connect you with reliable vendors (scooter rental delivered to your door!). Washer machine came in so handy too!

Absolutely wonderful!
Amazing hospitality. Incredible view. Great location. So much better than I imagined. Small convenience store next door. Bus stop directly in front. I could not ask for anything better. Very lovely. They even baked a cake for my kids.
