Set in the center of Amalfi, this accommodation overlooks the picturesque seaside resort town, including the Moorish bell tower and cathedral. This Amalfi Coast apartment is right in the center of town, in the middle of it all, but high enough up so that noise disturbances are diminished. From this Amalfi apartment you can take busses or water transportation to towns and islands all along the Amalfi Coast.
This apartment is located on the top floor of a building, and is accessed by 30 steps from the road to the building, then an elevator to the 3rd floor, then 25 steps up to the 4th floor. The building, dating back to the XVII century,... is roomy and comfortably furnished. Each room of the apartment has views and access to a terrace. There is a large, central terrace that offers an ideal spot to relax and take in the views.
Fourth Floor (Top Floor) (with elevator to 3rd floor, then up 25 steps): The entrance of this top-floor apartment leads into a living/dining room furnished with a table for six, a sofa, and a TV. French doors lead onto the terrace. There is a fully equipped kitchen. A master bedroom with a queen-size bed (160 cm) has access to the terrace via French doors. The second and third rooms each have two single beds (in one room these beds can be combined upon request). There are two bathrooms, one with sink, toilet, and shower, and the other with a sink, toilet, and bathtub. From the entrance, 20 steps lead up to a terraced patio furnished with barbecue, lounges, umbrellas, and a dining table for al fresco dining. The roof terrace is shared with the owner who occasionally lives in the studio apartment next to the roof terrace.

The weather did not cooperate while we were there in late October. However, the town of Amalfi is beautiful and the bus rides to neighboring towns offered stunning views.
Views from every room.
It was easy to catch buses to Ravello and Positano from the plaza. The town is compact and full of shops.

It was fantastic. We absolutely loved Ghita.
The deck was amazing. We spent a lot of time up there!
The views were magnificent. Surprisingly, the views behind us of Ravello (the hills) was better than the view of the water.

We spent our last week of our month in Italy at this property with our adult children and found it lovely and delightful. The views were amazing. The terrace was a great surprise and used every time it wasn't raining.
The space for everyone to spread out and the beautiful views of the sea.
Amalfi was lovely as was the entire coast area.

The Amalfi coast is breathtaking and the villa is in the middle of the old town. It could not be more centrally located.
The location in the center of the old town and the wonderfull nights spent drinking wine on the roof terrace.
The steps. It took a few days for my 91 year old father to get up and down more than once per day. He did get good at it.
We rented a 21-foot boat and toured the coast from the water. It was beyond description. The local dining was wonderful.

We had the greatest time! Ghita has the best location. It has easy access to Positano, Ravello, and Capri. Just hop a boat, bus or taxi. All was so easy. Great food all around. Do not worry about the electric charges. We only paid 42 Euros for 2 weeks. At first the stairs are a little much but by the end of the 2 weeks they were a cake walk. Helps burn off all the pasta!
Location, view, and hearing the church bells.
There are dogs on the 3rd floor that bark when people come ang go. There were sheets slipcovering the couches. The beaches are small and have pebbles, not sand. Hard on the feet but the water is so beautiful.

The view and rooftop deck and enjoying wine at the end of the day.
Steps - but it's AMALFI, after all.
Aah... La Costiera Amalfitana.

It was excellent. The property was beautiful and the experience was great - from all of Barbara's help at RentVillas prior to our departure to the great service by the property manager. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our vacation went smoothly - THANKS!
The view and the patio.
Most beautiful place I have ever visited.

Fantastic view, excellent location, very well kept.
Great location. Beautiful view of the Mediterranean and mountains. Very clean and spacious.
The sea and surrounding ports. Easy water taxi trip to Positano, Capri, the grottos.

Steps. Not good for elderly unless they are informed of the stairs.
Everything. Center of Amalfi.
Michael's review of Ghita
Left on 10/31/2005 for a stay in October 2005 | Michael
It is very open and spacious. Very clean and the roof garden is wonderful.
The steps, of course. Not very good for older adults carrying luggage, in particular. It would be good for you to warn people who might be coming with heavy luggage and to offer the possibility of some local kids to help with carrying to and from the apartment. The yapping dog next door is a pest.
A delightful and beautiful place to be and we would certainly recommend the area and the apartment. We were very lucky with the weather. Wouldn't want to be there when the rains come. However, the food that the local restaurants serve up for dinner is mediocre at best and certainly not cheap. The best food we had when we ate out was in Positano at the same price. We eventually tended to find somewhere for a decent lunch and bought food to prepare in the apartment for dinner.
Rhonda's review of Ghita

It was located in the middle of town yet far enough up so the noise below wasn't heard. Convenient location. Terraces off the rooms were great to have and the additional terrace upstairs was nice.
The stairs were very tiresome after a few trips. The entrance to the building was dirty and moldy. Did not like carrying our luggage through the center and up 140 stairs. Let people know that a porter can be arrange to carry their baggage...we did this on the way out and were thrilled.
The coast is beautiful. Loved Ravello. Liked the access to the boats that go to Positano, Capri, etc. Limoncello was yummy.
