We had a wonderful time. Positano is quite beautiful.
We were upgraded to Villa Begonia (larger) which was very spacious and comfortable.
There were ants. There were also barking dogs that were annoying in the middle of the night.
The views, the proximity to other towns.

Wonderful--we had a great time.
The view. It was nice to have AC in the bedrooms. The maid service was also excellent.
There were many ants in the kitchen. Also, wireless Internet access was inconsistent, even though it was advertised.
Close to colorful and inviting restaurants with good food, and away from the major crush of tourists all the amenities of Positano, including beaches and restaurants. The local smaller beach just below the villa was very nice and scenic.

Commanding view; terrace.
Hot water heater didn't work well; coffee maker was slow and inadequate. In the upstairs bedroom we had two twin beds put together and would have preferred one queen.
Restaurants, shoping, beach views of coast, weather

Our family would like to rent it again this year. What is your availability in the summer?
The amazing view, the lemon trees, and the fact that most of the apartment was outdoor living at its best! The outdoor terraces can not be surpassed.
The kitchen, but who's complaining?!
The town of Positano itself terraced on a hill...the proximity to Pompei etc.

Nice villa. Be careful with ceilings in bedrooms, they are low.
Views are most beautiful I have ever seen!
Service personnel was not very tactful (came in early and was a bit loud).
Everything is within walking distance(5-15 min.) if you don't mind walking steep stairs. If you do - take local bus(every 5-10min). Very nice restaurants, bars and shops most with breathtaking views and not very expensive prices. Positano itself is not very crouded with tourists, which we liked very much. You can take the hydrofoil to Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi. Check out the downtown area.

The villa was really nice. It had a great view of the sea and the garden area & decorating inside was nice too.
We enjoyed the patio dining area that overlooked the sea!! It was beautiful!!
We had no dislikes. The steps up & down through the village were certainly good exercise, though!
Everything; The food was good and the scenery was great!!!
