Located half-way up/down the mountain - which is apt because (a) the SITA major bus stop into/out of Positano (and an ATM) is located at the very top of the hill. The beach (conversely) is at the very bottom, and a number of restaurants and shops between.
Casa Maresca allows you to a 30 minute walk to get to either, whilst giving you access to that amazing coastal view for which Positano is famous.
It's a modest dwelling, but has everything required: Mini Fridge, air con and clean towels. And up a set of steep stairs across the road, you'll find a laundromat, which is very handy. There is also a secret path that takes you from Casa Maresca, directly down to the smaller beach. But the winner, is really the balcony. Stretching across the three (or four?) apartments, stretches a nice, wide balcony with an uninhibited view of the big Positano blue.
Lucia and her husband Paul are very gracious and helpful hosts - my only criticisms would be no wifi and a bit of a lack of privacy (the doors to the apartment are large glass sliding doors, so you have to black out the room to get any privacy).
But all in all, a pleasant stay.
