Glorious views over Positano. Good restaurants nearby. The Apartment itself was a delight. A Large terrace with sunny and shady areas. Beautiful gardens and well planned accommodation. Great showers. The family were very helpful.
OK, let me cut to the chase. Positano is a vertical city, be prepared for stairs, many stairs!!! Now, if you have to climb some stairs, there is no better place to rest your weary legs than this wonderful apartment in Casa Mastro. The Mastro family were wonderful and gave us some great tips on how to get around and recommendations for restaurants and boat tours - thank you Ambra!
The apartment was very well appointed and we cooked a couple of meals in the kitchen and had our dinner out on the terrace under the beautiful Positano moon listening to jazz and generally pinching ourselves at the beauty of our location high up above Positano. The casa has a lift that takes you up from street level and then there are about 70 steps up to the apartment. The apartment is a fair way up from the centre of Positano (probably around 1500 steps and took us about 30 minutes to walk down). We never did try to walk back up all the way, and chose to take a bus to Chiesa Nuova - a small intersection where you can find a couple of cafes, a Tabacchi where you buy bus tickets, buses, and a small grocery store. There are about 347 steps from Chiesa Nuova to our apartment (and we did this trip back and forth every day - and this took about 10 minutes). We also took a taxi back up to the garage level a couple of times - but at Euro 25.00 is pricey. This apartment is beautiful and in a really lovely part of Positano - it is highly recommended!
This was the most amazing place we have ever stayed in our lives! Two bedroom, 2 bath apartment with full kitchen, dining room and a deck that was huge and out of this world. It even had 2 lemon trees that were ours to pick freely. The Mastro family were incredible people and were there to answer any questions or concerns you might have. They actually live in an apartment nearby.
Would definitely go back to this Casa!
We had a wonderful time at this home. It was 2 full bedrooms with a huge patio and spectacular views. The pool was an added bonus for hot days when the beach was crowded.
The view and spacious balcony made this a memorable place to stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The parking at 15 Euros a day is secure and your car is off the street. The villa is located very high above the beach taking 1/2 hr to walk down. You need to carry your bags up 2 long flights of steps from the garage. The kitchen has basic equipment only. Beach towels were lovely but the bath towels could really do with replacement.
