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.
