“Your home in Positano”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was 8 nights in June. The owners are fabulous, excelent place, excelent wifi, excelent apartmens, full equiped. We thought Casa Maresca has an ideal location: quiet, in front of the sea. The walk to downtown or beaches is steep as all rental apartments. Paul and Lucia are very warm and friendly. Thanks for a great stay!!

We recently stayed at Casa Maresca for six nights. Travelled with relatives who had stayed there several times. If you are looking for a 4/5 star experience this is not for you.

If however, you want to stay in a spotlessly clean and homely environment with extremely friendly and welcoming hosts and with a spectacular view from the large terrace, then you will feel right at home.

The rooms are perfectly comfortable but basic and some have a small kitchen/ kitchenette and dining space. Both owners Paul and Lucia speak English ( one of them is an ex-pat Englishman) and will do anything to make your experience a great one.

It is located a little way up the hill but that is what gives you the great view. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you want to do any self catering then ask for a room with a kitchenette.

Can't say enough about this couple. We actually ended up not staying in Casa Maresca but still recommend the place. When we arrived in Positano from the Marina we walked to Casa Maresca. At first, it seemed too far away, but that was only a first impression. After some time in this town you realize that this is a great place to be as the views of the ocean are much prettier then if you stay in the center and you still around the restaurants/bar action. When we got to the house, we were disappointed that we did not have our own private terrace, the terrace is shared among all rooms, which makes you lose a bit of privacy. We also were not impressed with the bathroom either, which has those showerheads that you need to hold up (yes, I'm picky). However, we were received by Paul who was as nice as you can hope a host to be. He told us great tips and loads of info. We ended up choosing not to stay and this was not because the place wasn't nice, but because we were expecting a bit more luxury (for which we had to pay a lot more at the end of the day in a hotel nearby). Even then, Paul and Lucia were still the most gracious hosts and even offered to help with the luggage(!). Don't get a bad impression from us not staying, this place is a great cost x benefit and is beautiful. If you are looking for luxury, then try the hotels nearby (such as Poseidon or Maremonte) but if you are looking for a friendly well-located place in Positano, this is it, no doubt about it.

We've just come back from our second visit to Casa Maresca, and thoroughly enjoyed it again. Perfect location to visit Pompeii, Ravello, Sorrento and Amalfi as well as all the nooks and crannies of Positano. Paul and Lucia are the perfect hosts and are so helpful in giving you loads of information and how to get to places and what to see. The very best tip of the holiday was booking us in to La Traviata at Montepertuso which is just about the most fun we have ever had in a restaurant. Do not miss it!!

My husband and I stayed at Casa Maresca for 3 nights earlier this month. Lucia and Paul are wonderful! They are both so accommodating and knowledgeable. The location is perfect...only a 10 minute walk down to the beach. There are a lot of great restaurants just a few steps away. The terrace overlooking the water is AMAZING! Eating breakfast outside each morning was a great way to start the day. Our room was a nice size and had a perfect view of the water. It has all of the amenities you need. We will definitely be back!!

Had the pleasure to stay at Casa Maresca last weekend whilst in Positano. Paul and Lucia are a lovely couple and Paul recommended some cracking restaurants and wine bars nearby. The location was actually rather convenient, the walk into town was about 10 minutes down a gentle hill and the walk back was not difficult at all (despite the good lady's dodgy knee). The room had everything we needed, was spotlessly clean and the view is quite something to gaze at over a bottle of Italy's finest.

We have just enjoyed 4 nights in beautiful Positano and as we were travelling with friends had the rooms at the top - 2 very comfortable spacious bedrooms with ensuites and and an unbelievable view straight out to sea. The kitchen/living area is a little basic but as we only wanted to do our own breakfasts it worked for us and there are many restaurants close by. Paul and Lucia were great hosts and happily booked taxis for us and gave advice on places to go and places to eat. Casa Maresca is at the quiet end of Positano which we loved and it was easy to walk to the more touristy beach end. It was difficult to leave the beautiful terrace behind when it was time to leave.
