We stayed here in June 2012 for 3/4 days. We caught the bus with our luggage and were dropped off at the top, then caught a local taxi to the residence. Paul (the host) and co were very freindly. We booked a garden view room but we were delighted to find out that all rooms (as we're aware of) face onto the coast, so we had the most amazing view of the coastline. You enter from the street and then the house is down the steps, passing the lovely vegie patch and gardens (very lovely). The hosts were very lovely and even picked up our washing (must admit bit awkward with the "personals" hanging out to dry and being picked up). Other than that the residence is well maintained and with lovely views, gardens and a quaint modest interior that is great value for Positano. I definately recommend visiting here.
BIG - P.S - the street to arrive here is one way, so make sure you know where the place is located otherwise your driver (or if on a bus) will have to go ALL the way down and around to the top to do the loop again (This can be a bit annoying - but i guess that's what makes positano so unique)
