Amazing views, spectacular customer service (Rosa is a gem!), great breakfast, a fabulous beach 400+ steps down (which is super cool), and a very cool Garfield the cat. :) I love this place. The packed SITA bus from Sorrento was a fun experience. Glad we took the bus.

We rented apartment Patrizia for a whole week and we were very pleased with it! It was very clean and every morning they came tidy up the place providing clean towels and even changed the bed sheets. We were also very happy with the location. The apartment being a bit outside of the Positano coast offers a magnificent view of... More

It makes me sad writing this review because I want to be back at Holiday House Gilda! It was the perfect place to stay on the Amalfi Coast and really well-priced for the accommodation & views. We only stayed 3 nights, but I wish we had stayed at least a week. The staff are so friendly and helpful (thank you... More

If it wasn’t for the fact we had a driver waiting and a schedule to keep, we would have stayed longer; not because it was Positano, not because of the BnB per se, but had had such a relaxing stay which included some of those defining, unforgettable moments you treasure. Read the other interviews. The cover very well the essential... More

Gilda's was recommended by friends and did not disappoint. After a busy few days in Rome, Gilda's was the perfect spot to relax. The view is wonderful, beyond words. All at Gilda's are so welcoming and hospitable, and nothing was too much trouble to organise or explain. Rosa gets a special mention for her patience, humour and excellent English as... More

Holiday House Gilda was perfect for our stay in beautiful Positano. Gilda and her family are incredibly welcoming and treat every guest like family. She is the Itanian Nona everyone loves! The property is perfectly clean and the rooms are extremely spacious. Each room is apartment style, complete with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom. The views... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holiday House Gilda. The apartment was self contained. The pictures on this website are very accurate and all reviews are accurate. It is approx 15 minutes brisk walk out of Positano which was no problem for us, and ideally located in close proximity to Arienzo beach (if you dont mind the stairs). The setting... More

It's home away from home... it's a hidden paradise in Positano, Arriving there you feel you are welcomed, you feel you have just entered a place you can call home for a few days. The place was spotless clean, the scenery is amazing, the hosts are warm and welcoming, helpful, and nice. You have breakfast in the outdoor kitchen in... More
