“Beautiful Location and Great Balcony”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

We hope to go back next year but Paul and his wife were so helpful and being around the middle of town a great location plus my favourite the balcony for an excellent price for Positano. Holidays like this keep me going

Four of us stayed at Casa Maresca for 6 nights in late August and it was absolutely delightful. We booked two adjacent rooms that shared a balcony with ocean views where we spent most of our time relaxing, reading and eating! There is a great little local shop down the road that has fresh produce every day so it was ideal to make breakfast/lunch if we wanted to relax and enjoy the balcony. Paul and Lucia (the owners) are very honest about the rooms on their website - the rooms are homely and there is good air conditioning to escape the midday heat if you wish to. Paul and Lucia also gave us many great recommendations for places to eat in Ravello and near Positano so be sure to ask them for those tips too.

garden of Eden...excellent location...view of the ocean from sitting on our bed..corner grocery store 3 min walk, far enough away from town that we werent in tourist zone but only a 5 min walk to all the shops...Paul and Lucia were the best hosts we have ever had...the rooms were spotlessly clean and everything was functional. The kitchen was well equipped. There is no T.V., radio or alarm clock., but I am sure Paul would wake you up if you needed to get some place early and who needs a t.v. when the ocean and star filled sky lend itself to romantic evenings. The deck is in the shade by 7 pm so cooler summer breezes greet you when you return from your day of excursions. Paul and Luci will help you organize your events or local townspeople will...and believe it or not..Positano is not overpriced as suggested by some...Paul and Lucia offer an excellent place to relax at a fair price. We are planning on returning and this time we will stay at Casa Maresca for atleast 3 weeks...

My wife, adult son and I stayed at Casa Maresca for 6 nights as a result of a recommendation of a friend who had a very good stay here a few years ago. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. Paul and Lucia were very good hosts, so welcoming and helpful. The apartment was spacious with ocean facing balconies and a separate deck area that also had a great view. The rooms are nicely appointed. We enjoyed the kitchen and the opportunity to prepare some of our meals. A very good restaurant is directly across the street, Next2. A grocery store is about a 5 minute walk away. We are now back in Vancouver Canada with fond memories of our Positano stay.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in June. Paul and Lucia were welcoming and very thoughtful hosts. Our room was one of four that went out onto a lovely large deck with stunning views. Our room was very clean and spacious as was the bathroom.
The location of Casa Maresca was great. Near excellent restaurants (recommended by Paul and Lucia), 5 minutes walk from a grocer/convenience store, and about 10 minutes walk to the main beach and shopping area.
We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed for 8 days in August 2010 in one of the rooms with the shared terrace. The room and bathroom was squeaky clean, the bed was comfortable and the small fridge was an extra bonus to keep our wine cold . There was also a electric jug and plates and knives and forks etc so you could make your own breakfast lunch.
There is a large terrace shared by 4 rooms, but there is lots of space for each room to have their own table and chairs and some privacy.

The terrace has a lovely view of the sea and the location is right where you want to be, just down a few stairs from the main road (a real plus in Positano where there are hundreds of stairs to everything). There are a number of resturants within 5 mins walk and if you want to go down to resturants in the town, that is about 20 mins walk.
The bus stop is just down the road.

Paul and Lucia are wonderful hosts, full of advice and knowledge about the ferries, buses, resturants etc. Lucia is always there early in the morning if you need an early wake up call, she will knock on the door.

Lucia was wonderfully kind when I had a medical problem, by ringing the doctor who spoke very little english and then coming to the room when he visited so she could explain things to him for me.

Paul brought me lemons straight from his tree in the garden and also the complimentary bottle of wine that was there when we checked in was wonderful. He also helped with the luggage down the stairs.

Altogether we could not have had a more relaxing, comfortable stay in Positano.

There is an apartment on the top level above the rooms and that is where I would stay in the future if it is available, as the deck looked lovely.

If you think that you cant afford to stay in Positano because of the high prices, think again.
It isnt a 4 star hotel but a lovely comfortable, family owned b & b.

Thank you again Paul and Lucia. Kay and Ray Rendall, Australia.

my wife and I spent 8 nights at Casa Maresca recently , wanting a base from which to explorethe Amalfi region . It really turned out to be a gem , not only from a position point of view , but also that it enabled us to completely relax and do our own thing . We hired the apartment , which is simply but well appointed , the beauty of having one's own kitchen meant we were able to alternate between eating out or just looking after ourselves when we felt like it . We also had an ensuite bathroom and a front living room . There is an interleading second bedroom which would be ideal for two couples or for a family of four . There are lovely views from the terrace and we spent many hours relaxing with a glass of wine and just absorbing the atmosphere of this very special part of the world . If your preference is for 5 star hotels , then this will not be for you , but if you are after a quality base offering good value , then look no further . Paul and Lucia Clark will attend to your every need and ensure your stay is a happy one . Our thanks to them for a great holiday and we are certainly hoping to return soon .
