This family vacation was four years in the making and there are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe how wonderful this weeklong vacation was! We owe a lot of this to Gippy and our stay at the Venus B&B! As others have stated, he is the perfect host! The Venus B&B has good sized rooms, it is... More

Amazing place to stay! The location is great, close to Fornillo beach and not far from the main town. We loved having breakfast on the terrace each morning, the views from it are lovely. Gippy was a brilliant host, always friendly and cheerful. He gave us lots of advice about where to go, restaurants and events happening. We wouldn't hesitate... More

We were staying in Positano for a special celebration. I was looking to hit the sweet spot of convenience, price, view, comfort and relaxation. This was perfect and Gippy went out of his way to make sure our stay memorable. I was uncertain about location in Positano, up hill, down hill etc. This was perfect, somewhat above the main city...

Venus B & B The Venus Inn (B & B) in Positano is a marvelous choice. First, Positano is the jewel of the Amalfi coast. It is smaller, prettier and less congested than Amalfi or Sorrento, and it is better located than Ravello. The Venus B & B is better than places costing three times as much. As others have... More

We stayed at Venus Inn for 3 nights during a visit with my best friend - we cannot speak highly enough of it! Firstly the location is perfect - 10 minute passeggiata to the main non pedestrian area of Positano - and close to some fan static local restaurants. If you're worried about the stairs in Positano this B&B only... More

Positano can be an expensive place but please don't miss out on going to the best city in the world - you can stay there affordably by booking at the Venus Inn. My daughter rented a two level apartment and found that it was clean and comfortable and within walking distance of everything (beach, restaurants, shops). Gippy was warm and... More

This place was incredible. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a small kitchenette. And each room had a balcony. Breakfast was basic but there was always plenty of good, strong coffee. However, there are three things that make this place stand out. The price, the owner and location, location, location. This place is extremely reasonable well priced for... More

The BB Venus Inn was a lovely place to stay in Positano. The location is great, it is around a 15 minute walk through the windy inner road. The walk itself takes you past plenty of restaurants, shops and bars, many of which have stunning cliffside views of the town. We arrived via boat and decided to take a taxi... More

I booked through expedia. JP the owner e-mailed me confirming the reservation. He welcomed me when I arrived and was very informative and friendly. Made me a great coffee in the morning. This 4 room BB is near a bus stop which takes you to the town square where you can catch the boats that go to other locations. The... More
