HIGHLY RECOMMEND. FIVE STARS. mario is awesome. of hosts i've had, mario one of the kindest, flexible understanding (even when i missed the last SITA bus back from positano, got stuck there, and thus missed my supposed 8am checkout the next day). my time is sorrento was so terrific i kept wanting to extend my stay and mario kept saying "no problem". he brought up the most AMAZING breakfast selections every day. WAY better than any typical continental i have ever seen.
the home is mediterranean style, lovely and the rooms are situated above the house so you have MAJOR privacy--granted the next room over was vacant, but it was super quiet nonetheless. cathedral ceilings, lovely balconade windows with double shutters (for sleeping in if you like), sea view from right outside the room, beautiful tile floors and a super cute tile bathroom (only thing is if there were several people you might run out of hot water unless it was turned down for the winter). ample heating and ac in the room. overall very spacious and comfortable.
15 minute walk downhill grade (though mario graciously offered to retrieve me) (but remember you have to walk back up eventually) from the piano train station (circumvesuviana) and local (EAV) bus stops very near by. ONLY 5 MINUTE WALK to the seacliff. 2 towns over and 5 minute train ride from sorrento so you miss all the of the tourist trap congestion. SITA bus in centro to get to the amalfi coast and even solerno if you want to do the long tour versus the ferry or hydroboat.
THE PHOTOS ARE VERY REPRESENTATIVE, MARIO IS A GREAT GUY TOO!
i would totally stay here again, i recommend for you to book and enjoy...
