“Unbelievable escape from the amalfi coast madness just 300 steps”

This beautiful apartment was recently renovated with Modern bathroom and kitchen fixtures, and Every night was a good night sleep on the surprisingly comfortable beds.
What can I say about the excellent location? Just steps from the sea and the beautiful beach. Secluded and away from the hustle and bustle of the main amalfi Coast strip, but still accessible by boat or by climbing the 300 or so steps up to the bus.
Everyone from the three restaurants and the beach staff were friendly and always willing to assist in any way. And the food was great also.
If you are looking to stay in the amalfi area for a while and don't want to be right in the thick of everything Conca dei Marini is the place to be. We absolutely Loved it. Thank you for allowing us to spend our time there.

This is a perfect place to stay to take in the beauty of the amalfi Coast. The apartment was totally renovated 2 years ago, 2 bedrooms with two baths, it also has a washing machine. This worked out great for 4 people. Stefano made this experience totally painless, his help was priceless. It is about 50 feet off of the very secluded beach. There are 3 restaurants on this beach, most customers arrive by boat, we ate at two out of three and the food was great. Best way to get to the town of amalfi is by boat, the alternative is 297 stairs up to the bus stop above, better be in okay shape it is a workout. Fyi, the buses are very crowded and never on time, this is true throughout the amalfi Coast region. From here we took the bus to Positano, took a boat trip from amafli to Capri, Capri was beautiful. We recommend when walking around the town of amalfi to walk to atrani, the next town East. Go to the Nettuno bar on the beach and talk to andrea, he is a wealth of information. We would highly recommend this location.

It would be our pleasure to review this beautiful property. From the minute we booked it after reading the wealth of information provided about the property and its surrounding, to our arrival by boat to this jaw dropping destination, we knew we were on a winner. Stefano, and his welcome staff were friendly, and very helpful, and could'nt do enough for us. The apartment itself is perfectly simple, and very clean, with all the necessities required to make our week here comfortable.
It's located on a gorgeous small beach, with a seafood restaurant run by a beautiful family (La Tonnerella) located below the apartment which was both convenient and also on of the best gastronomic experiences of our holiday. The apartment was well insulated so we weren't disturbed by restaurant noise. A bonus was the coffees and croissants for brunch while looking at the view.
The biggest compliment I can give is to say that our family will return to the same apartment again for another holiday, and I have already raved about it to family and friends, recommending it highly.
Thank you Stefano for one of the highlights of our trip.

Place where the house, very beautiful is located. At any time there is an opportunity by the boat to go to amalfi city. On the first floor of the house the cafe is located, cook well and do a discount). The house very much was pleasant. In total that it is necessary to eat. Unusual view from windows on the sea. if you worry that from cafe will be noisy, I assure you it not so. If to go to eat in cafe on the first floor, it will be possible to use their wi-fi.
Many thanks of Stefano. Everything very much was pleasant to us. Now if we go to the sea to Italy it there will be 100% of Casa della Marina - Amalfi Coast.
