The experience was fantastic. The home is beautiful and in a quiet area close to town.
Obviously the view was the main draw, but the layout of the villa suited our group. Access to the water was a plus as the swimming was a bonus due to the warm weather in October. The outdoor shower, while never mentioned, was a huge hit with all of us and the only shower we all used.
The quiet, quaint, and authentic part of Amalfi, no tourists. Easy access to other sites and towns.

Location, view, living area, aesthetics. The clothes washer was also key. The owner supplied a bus schedule, which was great, since they are hard to find.
The dishwasher is on its last legs, the stove is serviceable but a bit cranky. I'm told that undersized electrical services are typical for Italy, but we had three nights where we had to reset the main circuit breaker multiple times. However, my complaints are really quite minor, and we got good help when we asked.
The hiking is fantastic. That is what we went for, mostly, and it was unbelievable.

We had a great time. The Amalfi Coast is amazing! So much to see and do. Yet the villa was quiet and relaxing.
The view has to be 1. We spent every evening on the porch watching sunsets and admiring the scenery. The rooms, except for the kitchen, were spacious. The furniture was comfortable.
Upon arrival, the floors were swept but not clean; there were dead bugs in the tub in one bathroom and the shower needed a good cleaing. Also, one guest cut himself on the edge of the shower. The sea is 12 meters deep where the villa sea access is located. Only for strong swimmers. We were upset that we had to pay 280 euros to park our car down the road from the villa in a restaurant parking lot with no overnight security - when the 3 or 4 spaces behind the gate at the villa remained empty for the entire 2 weeks with only one space occupied on the weekends. We couldn't understand why the owner could not have made arrangements for us to rent one of the spaces.
A bus stop was just a short walk from the villa. This made it so easy to travel to all the spectacular sights on the Amalfi coast and beyond. Between the buses and the train we never had to use our car--a definite plus considering the curvy road along the coast.
