What Past Guests Are Saying
Cobie's review of Casa Mare
Good, although the steps made it very difficult with babies.
The centre of Positano town.
Robert's review of Casa Mare
Outstanding! What a great way to vacation. The view from the villa was spectacular, the locals friendly and helpful, and we saved a ton of money by not having to eat out all the time.
Definitely the view. Wonderful patio overlooking the ocean and the city. We spent lots of hours out there. Sunset and a great glass of wine...hard to beat.
The upstairs part of the villa is a separate rental. Our upstairs neighbors were a nice couple from England but it was a little strange to hear them up there.
The location of the villa is central to restaurants, shopping, and the central area of Positano. Very convenient for getting around. There is certainly no need of a car.
Tonya's review of Casa Mare
The view was spectacular.
All of the steps to get to and from the villa. Plus the bathroom upstairs was hard to use because the shower door handle was missing - and it flooded every time I showered.

The shower door handle has been fixed. August 2007
Jonn's review of Casa Mare
Needed one more fan, but this is a small thing.
The sea, food, wine.....
Margaret's review of Casa Mare
The apartment is spacious, with stunning views from all the living areas. The apartment itself is very attractive, although quite cluttered. Does anyone really need 16 pottery owls in a bathroom? The terrace garden is a lovely feature. It is a very well located apartment. Although Positano is notorious for its steps, this apartment is well placed; it is located 50 steps down from the main street, so getting luggage in and out is not a big problem. The bus stop is a 5-minute stroll and the main beach and town centre is an easy 10 minutes away.
We were horrified to be charged more than 150 euros for utilities for the week. Granted, November can be cool (heating costs), but cleaning is 100 euros which at least is notified up front, and transfers to-from Naples will add another 100 euro each way. This is before you even start eating - Positano is not a place to find value for money! The master bedroom was large and airy but the second bedroom is cramped and unattractive. In both rooms the beds and bedding were old and uncomfortable. Water pressure is very poor, with the downstairs shower almost unusable.
Even out of season, public transport is regular and reliable, very cheap and far less stressful than driving. Day trips to Ravello, Amalfi and Sorrento are easy and worthwhile with the bus trips back and forth along the Amalfi coast an absolute highlight in their own right. Positano pretty much shuts down at the end of October, the few restaurants that remain open are mediocre and expensive and even the locals seem to have deserted the place.
Ben's review of Casa Mare
The beautiful garden terrace, and proximity to the town were fantastic.
The shower was a bit tricky, even by Italian standards. Also, there was a little bit of noise from the main street above the house.

Scott And Diane's review of Casa Mare
Would highly recommend the property to anyone staying in Positano. Lots of space and first class view of the town and sea.
The view was fantastic as was the large patio to sit out on. Our daughter enjoyed the extra space to play while we lingered enjoying the view and wine.
Bit of a musty smell given the humidity and dampness. Bathrooms, and in particular, the showers, should be redone; the rooms are soaked each time they are in use.
Raquel's review of Casa Mare
The view and the quiet were wonderful; it was a very relaxing vacation
The bathrooms; the shower spilled all over the bathroom, and the water pressure was low. It would have helped if there were some soap and extra toilet paper so we would not have to go out right away and buy it. There were no clear instructions in English how to use the washing machine.
Very charming and colorful.
Russell's review of Casa Mare
If you're looking for an exceptional view, this is the place. Every night we would sit outside in the private garden about the size of a basketball half-court and drink a bottle or two of wine while we watched the sun go down. You'll find fragarant flowers and lemon and lime trees all around you. It's really hard to express how fantastic it was to just watch the ferries and small craft come in and out of tha marina at Spiaggia Grande from your own garden perch. All the rooms except the bathrooms at this property face the sea with large French doors. At night, we just opened then all up and slept with a light breeze blowing through the house. We discovered the villa also has a record player! We hadn't seen one in years, and proceeded to play the owner's collection of Beatles, David Bowie, U2, Cure and Smiths albums whenever we were sitting outside. Wonderful!
There was nothing we didn't like about the property, but here are a few things to be aware of: The villa advertises AC, and it does exist, but in the form of two large, heavy portable units, both of which were upstairs. Carrying one down to the main living space would have required more effort than we were willing to expend during vacation, so we didn't bother with AC. Also, the wiring in this house is understandably old. I doubt we could have run both machines at the same time without blowing a fuse. If you use the combination washer-dryer, don't try out the dryer. As we discovered, it will trip your electric breakers every time you turn it on even if the refrigerator and all other electric appliances are off. FYI, the breaker box is outside the villa by way of the kitchen door. Use the drying rack outside instead. You also do need to be in fairly good shape to traverse the stairs from and to the main street and around Positano in general. We're both runners, so it was fine.
The villa is well situated -- It is near enough to central Positano to be convenient, but far enough away where you won't have throngs of day-trippers jamming up the immediate area.
Francis's review of Casa Mare
Positano is such a great town. The shopping, restraunts, shops are all wonderful. We ate in at the Villa about half the time, using the most fresh and delicious ingredients the area has to offer. At Casa Mare, we had the best of all vacation options.
The view, the structual beauty of the Roman arches, and the garden.
We couldn't stay longer. Maybe they could increase the pressure in the shower a bit.
