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.

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.
