Just back from a lovely 2 night stay at Villa Damecuta.

The friendly family welcome, the spotless accommodation, delicious breakfast and location overlooking the sea from the terrace makes Villa Damecuta THE b&b to choose.

The location is peaceful, however not far from the main Anacapri square or bus stop to Capri town, only around 7 minutes stroll through local streets and part of the old town, very interesting.

Rafaella and her parents go the extra mile, no wonder Villa Damecuta has such excellent and well deserved ratings.

Thanks Rafaella, Mum and Dad :-))

Rafaela and her parents were the most welcoming and genuinely kind people we met on our entire month vacation. They were extremely helpful and went above and beyond what we expected or what was required of them. The Villa Damecuta was a lovely, clean and refreshing place to unwind and relax. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to a potential ferry strike, which we would not have known about if it hadn’t been for Rafaela. Rafaela, with no consideration for her own loss of business, made sure to inform us of the pending strike and advised us to leave early in order to avoid the stress and inconvenience of trying to get off the island during a ferry strike. We strongly recommend a stay with Rafaela and her family at the Villa Damecuta. We guarantee you could not meet kinder and more lovely people.

I was just at the Villa Damecuta 2 weeks ago, late June 2012. It is an amazing place to stay for the incredibly reasonable rate in Anacapri. I had a lovely room, and when the heat came pouring in, there was an airconditioner available! The family is the kindest, most helpful you can aimagine. Raffaella is a very open, kind young woman who makes you feel part of the family! The breakfast was amazing. Who gets omelettes included in Italy? We would sit on the veranda and watch the "tramonto" {sunset) and talk politics with the family. I really had a great time. I was able to take the bus down to the beach at Grotta Azzura and there are areas that rent chairs with umbrellas, and there are steps directly into the sea. Just heavenly. I couldn't recommend a place more highly.

I'm so happy we stayed at Villa Damecuta. From the moment we arrived, when Raffaella offered us ice tea and explained us everything about the Island, until the moment we left, everything was perfect. The B&B is some 5 to 10 minutes of a very pleasant and picturesque walk to the center of Anacapri - I didn't see any another hotels/B&B's next to it or on the way to town. You can almost feel like you are part of the Island.
As mentioned by many others here on Trip Advisor, Raffaella and her lovely family will do everything to make your experience an enjoyable one - without at any moment being intrusive to their guests.
My girlfriend and I stayed in the room Raffaella said to be the simplest one, Oasi. Although not luxurious (not what I looking for) it had everything necessary for a comfortable stay: very nice and large bed, fridge, air conditioning, nice shower and towels and a good overall size. The room faced the lovely garden with its beautiful flowers and fruit trees (lemosn, peache, figs, etc.) an it was EXTREMELY quiet, just the way I like!
The breakfast had everything you need for a good start - the jewel being the omelet with buffalo mozzarella and fresh vegetables from their garden.
Raffaella will give you great suggestions of restaurants, attractions, walks, and will explain to you all you need to move around the island.
I much preferred Anacapri better than Capri, both day and night - most of the attractions of the island are there (Blue Grotto, chair lift, Villa San Michelle) and it has far less tourists than Capri, especially at night - the streets are extremely charming and the people very nice and helpful to any requests.
We have decided that next time we go to Europe we'll visit the Island again certainly will stay here and enjoy this magical experience.
Some tips - if you enjoy walking the blue grotto is some 40 minutes down the road from the B&B and you can take a bus on the way back. By doing this you will take a good walk and save some bucks from the boat that leaves from the Marina in Capri.
If you get lost at any moment in the maze of Anacapri, don't worry - you will find yourself soon enough! If necessary ask for directions and people will be more than happy to help you!
Thank you Raffaella!

We were so pleased to have chosen this B&B to stay in. The room was simple, clean, cool and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful, with superb fresh orange juice. Location-wise, it was a lovely 10-minute stroll through the historic district ally-ways to the main Piazza Vitorria, with several restaurant options along the way.

But the main reason for the 5 stars is the welcome and hospitality of Raffaella and her family. On arrival we were invited to join Raffaella on the terrace, where she gave us some very welcome (and tasty) iced tea, melon and lots of useful information about the island, where to go and how to get around. She was available throughout our stay for information and advice, and gave us lots of help in getting our bags back to the port at the end of our stay.

The local bus system is regular, simple and very easy to use. We found it just as easy to just buy the tickets on the bus from the driver, rather than trying to get them in advance. There’s no real need to memorise timetables as they are all fairly frequent.

Tip 1: You probably will get slightly lost finding the B&B for the first time - just accept that and don;t panic! The directions are correct, but the historic district is such a maze that it’s impossible to describe the route clearly. One good thing - you probably won’t be as lost as you think you are - as most routes end up in the same place. The first trick is to get off at the correct stop - it is the third stop once you arrive in Anacapri (the first being Piazza Vittoria and the second is opposite a little bus station with bays for about 5 buses). Just ask one of the locals on the bus - we found everyone to be very friendly and willing to help. Immediately beyond the bus stop there is a little ally way. Try and follow the directions, but when you get confused I’d suggest opting for a left-hand and/or downhill option or ask someone for Via La Vigna. Eventually you will end up coming out of the pedestrian-only area into a narrow road - unless you’ve really messed up this will be Via La Vigna. Just turn right and keep following it for a while, past the little salumeria, then checking the numbers on the left hand side until you get to Number 45.

Tip 2: If you want to go into the Blue Grotto, we’d strongly advise arriving no later than 9am. We got there just after 9, got straight on a boat into the cave and, for the most part, it was just us and one other boat inside the grotto. By the time we were coming out 5 minutes later, all the tour boats had arrived from the port and there was a MASSIVE queue of the small boats that take you into the grotto and there were about 10-15 boats actually in the grotto at any one time - hardly a magical experience!
