“Simply wonderful!”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We loved Villa Caruso! Mario and his father, Luigi, are fabulous hosts! The villa has two fabulous terraces that afford a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples , Mt Vesuvius and Beautiful Sorrento!
The villa is lovely and equipped wonderfully! We loved our stay.
One note: DO rent a Fiat to navigate the road to the villa? We had a Fiat 500L and were able to drive straight to the villa with no trouble....the road is very narrow in places and a larger car will probably have difficultly going up it. BUT, Mario or his father will help with your luggage if needed! They are great hosts as I have said!
We wholeheartedly recommend Villa Caruso and we will stay there when we return to Bella Sorrento!

“Great villa between Naples and Amalfi”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at this comfortable villa with a great view over the Sorrento bay from the living room, small terrace and the upstairs large terrace.
We had a big car, which can easily be parked down the road. Mario helped us getting the luggage in his small car up the hill.
Each couple had its own bathroom with toilet, which is great too. The bedrooms overlook the garden.
The narrow road to the house is quite a steep climb, but the view is a great compensation for that. Only if you rent a small car and are a good driver you can drive up the hill for the last 250 meter.

“Magnificent view and perfect apartment!”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A bit of a hike up the drive if you don't have a small enough car, but worth it! Views are just as pictured and the apartment is beautiful. We were two couples and liked that both bedrooms were equal. Each had a large bed and an extra single bed. The bathrooms were large and modern. Mario and his family were wonderful. Thanks for a spectacular stay.

“Incredible view, lovely villa, friendly and welcoming host”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Villa Caruso for a week in late Dec/early Jan, and while the weather was not as good as we had hoped, the villa itself was delightful and I would definitely recommend it as a destination any time of the year.

Our host, Mario, met us at a nearby restaurant, Il Borgo, that was a good reference point easily found on Googlemaps. The location is about 7-10 minutes out of Sorrento, in an area called Priora. The views from the villa, as mentioned by previous reviewers, are spectacular, and the driveway is therefore quite challenging initially. We hired a Fiat Panda, as Mario recommended, and as the driver I was very grateful for the small car's manoevrability; I wuold not be put off by this aspect as the drive is very do-able, even for an Australian!

The villa is new, exceptionally spacious and well-furnished, with a lovely adjacent courtyard garden and huge roof terrace. The kitchen equipment provided is very basic, but Mario welcomed us with some lovely homemade wine and olive oil which balanced things out! Unexpected features included an integrated sound system and excellent central and under-floor heating which was great given the cold weather. The roof terrace would be incredible in warmer weather, as the views across the bays of Sorrento and Naples are simply stunning. Nice high railings on the balcony off the living area and the terrace itself so completely safe for children.

As another visitor had mentioned, we also stayed in on New Year's Eve and the fireworks display was simply spectacular - this in itself made the stay a truly special holiday.

“Best view”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful, new home. The family all lives nearby and it is very safe. One of the best views we saw on all of Amalfi. The owner is very easy to work with and presented us with wine, olive oil, pasta and tomatoes upon our arrival. A few clarifications, however, are necessary. There is no air conditioning, although Mario did provide fans upon request. The wifi isn't great and is only available in the living room when it is available. I think the physical location of the house may be to blame. The parking is more of an issue than the description implies. I think only an experienced, Italian driver in a very small car could actually park at the house. Parking is available at the bottom of the hill to the house, but be aware that it is quite a steep hike to reach the villa. The villa is close to Sorrento, but a bit tucked away and difficult to find until you get your bearings. A few more items in the kitchen would be helpful: a sponge, dish detergent, bowls and perhaps a coffee maker. There is an Italian espresso maker that we were able to figure out. We did enjoy this house and felt like it was a real Italian experience.
