Is an apartment located on the beach of Positano, 10 yards away from the sea.
It is ideal for family accommodation with children, and people who like to have everything at your fingertips.
Near the apartment there are the best restaurants in Positano, and down the stairs (12 stairs) there is an exclusive wine bar where you can enjoy a fantastic aperitif in the shade of the magnolias and then go to dinner in one of the restaurants that are in radius of 20 yards.
The advantages of the apartment are to have the sea to 10 yards away, and then, beaches, boat rental, restaurants, bars and shops all in a radius of 30 yards, and finally only 100 yards away there is the pier that allows you to reach by ferry or hydrofoil all the top tourist destinations as the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Naples, Sorrento and Salerno, enjoying the journey in peace without having to drive in the summer traffic, or worse yet, use the bus, and finally enjoy a holiday in peace.

Hi this is me. As you can see, Villa Costanzo is right on the beach, 10 yards away from the sea (real).
Edmondo purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Edmondo chose Positano
If you choose Villa Costanzo for a vacation in Positano, you'll have everything at your fingertips, such as: Beach, sea, restaurants, bar, internet, shopping, etc. ...
What makes this Apartment unique
The advantage of having the sea below the apartment is amazing, especially if you have kids. Have a drink in the bar located below the apartment and watch the childrens play on the beach a few meters away from you, is something that relaxes a lot, or go to dinner at one of the restaurants that are within 30 yards from the Villa. These and other advantages offered by the location of Villa Costanzo will make your holiday a wonderful holiday.

Spectacular location, but could use a few improvements
Pros: This is literally the best location in all of Positano. This is not hyperbole. Everything you need will be right outside your door, including fantastic restaurants, charming shops, and a wonderful cafe where you can start your day with delicious cappuccino and fresh squeezed blood orange juice. You will realize that this convenience is a rare commodity in Positano, as it can be very difficult to get around, given the steep steps.
You will have oceanfront views from every room. John Steinbeck apparently lived there and wrote his famous essay about Positano from the living room ("Positano bites deep..."). The apartment itself is extremely clean and tidy. It's clear that the owner cares very deeply about the place.
Cons: The shower is in serious need of updating. It's basically a vertical plastic coffin, but smaller. And you will have enough hot water for one shower; then will need to wait 20 minutes for the water to heat up again. A larger boiler and a decent-sized shower stall would seem to be easy fixes. The beds are the hardest beds I've ever slept in. Again, an easy fix for the owner.
Also, I think the orientation can be shortened. Ours literally took 45 minutes, where the owner painstakingly showed us how every window opened and locked, how the washer and dryer worked, how each kitchen appliance worked, etc. We tried to explain that we are not going to cook or use the washer/dryer, but he insisted on the tutorial. After the long drive from Naples, the length of the orientation could drive you mad. The worst part is that he left out information that we actually needed -- including that there are no toiletries. We spent another 45 minutes trying to find a pharmacy that was open.
The downside of being close to everything is that you will hear some outside noise. The windows aren't really soundproof, and on one of the nights, the cafe turned into a dance club. This really didn't bother us, since we're from NYC, but light sleepers should be aware.
Some tips: Try and pack light. Your driver will drop you off and you will need to negotiate some steep steps going down to the apartment with your bags. When leaving, I highly recommend hiring porters (the owner will call them for you), as going up the steps with even small bags will be a huge challenge. They charge 10 euros per bag, which will be money well spent.
We absolutely loved staying at this spacious and clean apartment with great views of ocean. The location was perfect, and allowed our two children to head to the beach on their own. We were steps away from all the shops and restaurants. The newly placed windows were completely soundproof and air conditioning worked very well. We all loved our stay.
Great location near the main beach in Positano
The villa was spacious and classically Italian. It was right in the heart of the main beach area and made getting around with 2 kids very easy. We were close to the beach, marina, great restaurants and shops. It was nice having laundry in house and fantastic people watching from the balcony.
Fabulous property with a gracious host. Location perfect close to all shopping and restaurants.
This is a spacious 2 bedroom unit overlooking the beach. Our host Edmundo was very attentive from my first inquiry of the Villa to the moment we left Positano. If you hope to prepare your own meals the kitchen is well equipt with modern appliances. There is a groceria 1-2 minutes away and a fish market in the same courtyard. The unit was well appointed and perfectly maintained. There is a lot of activity all around the Villa which can be right in the middle of it from your balcony or completely close it all out with the stylish soundproof French doors. Washer and dryer are convenient and allow you to pack lite. If it's beach stuff your looking for your 20 yards to the sand, water, boat rentals and the ferry dock.
Our family had a great experience, come here and stay you won't be dissaponted. Thank you!
See you next June.
Many thanks for your review I hope to have you as my customer next year (:))
Fun location; Very Clean apartment and Surprisingly Quiet
We really enjoyed our recent stay at Villa Costanzo with our two daughters (ages 11 & 14). We've rented several HomeAway properties over the years and this apartment was by far the cleanest we've ever stayed in. You can tell Edmondo takes pride in his property-- his check in process can take about 45+ minutes but it's all very helpful information about the apartment and the area. The apartment is in the middle of all the action but once you close the soundproof windows, it's very quiet and we had no trouble sleeping. He also gives you a laminated card you can present at several of the local restaurants for a 10% discount.
If arriving by rental car like we did, you will also get a discount from the Di Gennaro Parking Garage (20 euro/day; this is the very last garage before you come to the pedestrian-only area). You can hire a porter to take your bags down to/up from the apartment. Our daughters really enjoyed hanging out and swimming at the little beach club located just outside the apartment. Get there early to reserve your chairs and umbrellas but you can come and go all day. Positano was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Italy!
This is one of the best and detailed reviews I have ever received, Iam very happy you had a nice holiday in my apartment I hope to have you as my guests in the next years (:))
Clean, neat with a perfect location.
the apartment is in a great location. Pictures are a pretty good representation of what the apartment looks like. Edmondo was very quick to fix an issue we had with the air conditioning. We enjoyed our stay.
