Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Although we had a good idea of what to expect from reading numerous VRBO reviews, upon our arrival at "house Oliver" we were more than pleasantly surprised. Walking up the few steps to the house we were taken back by the sheer beauty of the views. Their were gorgeous views that stretched from Minori on the left to shimmering blue waters on the right. Breathtaking! Entering the house, we set eyes on a tastefully furnished apartment with three levels, all spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we shared a glass of Prosecca while Oliver shared his ideas for places to eat and things to do. It was a great first day.

Beautiful and quite functional, the home was tastefully furnished. The kitchen, modern and clean is actually co-located with the upstairs master suite. Don’t ask me how they pulled this off but it fits perfectly and works very well when transporting coffee from the kitchen to the porch for an early morning viewing of the sunrise.

One must keep in mind that Amalfi Drive is RIGHT beneath the gate to House Oliver. Each time you leave you must proceed with some caution. Walking along the Amalfi Drive can be daunting at first but after a few days you will likely find it fun, interesting and great exercise. We did.

The view! You must see it to believe it. Enough said.

Now for what makes the visit a truly pleasurable experience: Oliver and his wife Lele (sp). They sparkle with enthusiasm for their beautiful home. They are proud of their country and the wonderful area they call home and rightfully so. Gracious, friendly and helpful they were available when we needed them and went quietly about their business when we didn’t. Indeed, it was because of this exuberance that we took him up on his “Boat Ride”. An experience for the ages. Seeing the Amalfi Coastline from the water was worth every penny. Oliver showed us sights we would never have seen on our own then took a slow cruise to a restaurant where my wife and I shared “Jackie’s Favorite” pasta. We swam twice and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

During our stay we had but few moments to talk with Lele. We would have loved more time with her.

I give House Oliver every bit of five stars in my rating. They work hard to earn that rating and all their efforts translate into a vacation experience that you will never forget.

PS: If you need a driver, ask for Claudio. He is something special!

Summer holiday on Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start of our arrival, Oliviero & Lella were there to greet us with a glass of prosecco. The apartment was spotless, extremely well kitted out. Comfy beds, several areas to sit & relax on the terraces. Amazing views over Amalfi bay.

We were provided with various ingredients to make a very tasty pasta meal. We were even given a huge bowl of fruit which was most welcome.

The kitchen was well equipped, if a little quirky as it is located in one of the bedrooms, but honestly it was fine and very convenient for an early morning cup of tea/coffee.

Lots of books to read whilst relaxing with a glass of wine

A couple of things to note - the closest food shop/ bar is about an 8 minute walk down towards Amalfi. The roads are very windy, however the cars go slowly & drivers are very considerate to people walking.

We would certainly recommend House Oliver and shall return.

Thank you to our hosts for providing a beautiful home from home.

The house that has everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

House of Oliver exceeded my expectations and my dreams! From the beginning of the process of choosing a place to stay Oliver was kind and attentive and responded to all my questions immediately. Oliver and Lella greeted our party with a bottle of wine and some fruit and cool, wet towels to wash away our travel! The house is perfect for 4 people with 2 private bedrooms with attached bathrooms for each. Oliver stocked the fridge with fruit, yogurt, milk and water to enjoy over our stay free of charge. He also has wines stocked for a fee! Oliver has thought of EVERYTHING and the home had more than we could have asked for! Fully stocked with all toiletries as well beach towels, a beach bag, robes, slippers, two types of coffee makers, an iron, even electricity converters for foreign travelers!

Oliver and Lella had wonderful suggestions to make the most of our stay. Oliver made reservations for us at restaurants and we were treated like family everywhere when locals knew we were staying at House of Oliver!

Without a doubt the highlight of our stay was the mini-cruise along the Amalfi Coast with Oliver. Seeing the coast via boat was spectacular and Oliver took us to special spots to swim in the most amazing water I have every experienced! Oliver was our personal paparazzi so that we could enjoy the moments but also have photos to look back on! He prepared a lovely meal for us with cheeses, crisps, salamis, fruits and of course wine! It was the very best day!

Upon our departure Oliver and Lella came to say goodbye with a special espresso and gifts! Olive oil from his own olives, soaps and crushed chili peppers!

I will 100% be back and I will always stay at House of Oliver!

The villa was absolutely perfect. We had 5 people in our family and fit comfortably. stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Oliver and Layla, left no detail to chance. The hospitality was amazing, from a welcome at the gate and a welcome glass of champagne to the fond farewell with a wonderful espresso! Oliver and Leyla shared great restaurant and excursion suggestions and all were wonderful! The day out on their lobster boat with Lunch and swimming off the boat was a trip highlight not to be missed! Seeing the coast from the water was absolutely amazing! Oliver set us up with wonderful drivers for day trips! We enjoyed our down time on the beautiful veranda and cooking a little in the well appointed kitchen! Unforgettable family experience that was perfect in every way! We felt like family!!

Smooth Sailing!

  • 5 of 5

House Oliver delivered as promised! 2 couples, no agenda, just going with the flow. Oliver sent a car to pick us up at the train station in Solerno, met us at the door 30 minutes later, and we never looked back. We are pretty easy going and it helps to have a free spirit attitude because each village has its own style and brings something different to the table. The walk up the 1700 steps to Ravello was challenging, but the reward was a quaint village with great wine, food, gardens, and views/vistas!!!!! Oliver’s mini cruise is a requirement, highlight of the trip!

Spectacular Owner and Property

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our stay at House of Oliver July 2-6, 2018 and could not of been Happier with our time at the house.

My family of five, My wife two adult children and one teen were all very comfortable in the home.

The view was amazing, we spent a good time on the patio, gazing out at the ocean and couldn't help but pinch ourselves occasionally just to make sure we weren't dreaming.

Oliver is a true professional and as I got to know him while out on his boat and the communications we had, I could tell he is a man that cares about his customers and wants them to be happy.

He stocked the pantry with necessities, like eggs butter milk toast , fresh tomatoes and pasta, which we ate most of. We use VRBO a lot and that is not common. Oliver is not a common man..

He also stocked the bar with wine and beer, which in our world is also a necessity. Note: the beer and wine our extra and you pay for what you take, which I feel is completely fair.

The beds were comfortable, the interior was beautifully furnished and the AC worked well, I think we ran it no stop, probably didn't need to, but when you came home from a hot day at the beach, it was nice to walk into an icebox.

I would say the day cruise on his boat is a must, you get to see a lot of the coast and a grotto, that you otherwise would miss from staying on land.

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but he supplies the day cruise with wine beer and a fabulous lunch, we felt like royalty on the boat, my family says that was the best day of our 15 day trip to Italy, well worth the money.

I should mention his wife was extremely nice and I believe she was the one who did our laundry mid stay, which was totally unexpected.

The regrets I have is that I about the place is I wont get back enough to enjoy again.

Thanks Oliver

You made our vacation memory my family will hold dear for the rest of our lives.

Hope to see you again. Ciao Michael
