Beyond Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at House Oliver was beyond our expectations. Oliver and Lela were such gracious hosts. We arrived to a fully stocked home (fruits from Oliver's garden, cereals, coffee, milk, juice, water). There was not one household item missing ie iron, ironing board, hair dryer -- very important for three woman travelling together!! -- full kitchen etc). Oliver greeted us with a bottle of proseco and he and Lela came over our last day with coffee and beautiful lemon soaps for each of us. The views are breathtaking from the terraces (and from the windows). The pictures on the website do not do it justice!! Although fairly close to town, do not hesitate to use his driver who was a phone call away and extremely fair pricing. I could go on and on but we cannot wait to go back!!!!

The most AMAZING view!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a beautiful villa! Oliver' and his wife Lelea go out of their way to ensure their guests have everything they need! The view is amazing! Although the Villa isn't specifically in town, the SITA bus stop is right outside the door. Be aware that you can take the bus either way regardless of what side the bus stop is on. We did the half day boat tour with Oliver and his skipper Pietro, and it was absolutely fabulous- we highly recommend it! Although we traveled with our two young girls, this villa could accommodate two couples easily as both bedrooms are master bedroom quality. Thank you so much Oliver & Lelea!

Words cannot express the beauty

  • 5 of 5

What a magnificent experience. I can't say enough about Oliver's hospitality; from our arrival to our departure everything was wonderful. The day on the boat swimming in the Mediterranean is an all time high Great villa, everything one would need. View more beautiful than pictures. We loved the location. Walk to amalfi toen, walk to atrani and walk to minori. We will be back!

Majestic View on the Amalfi Coast

  • 4 of 5

House Oliver has much to offer. The most spectacular aspect is the view of the sea. It's really beyond description. And the terrace is lovely and a perfect place to enjoy this beautiful scenery. The house itself is very nice, with 2 large bedrooms and a cozy sitting room (with a piano!). The daily cleaning is really great and not typical in a house rental. The kitchen is in one of the bedrooms which is odd, but fine, and while it is compact, it is well-stocked. In fact, Oliver and Lella stock the fridge and kitchen really generously for your use. There is wine available for purchase and while not expensive (12 Eur), we found the same wine at a grocery for less than half the price. Other really nice touches include beach towels and totes, a safe, air-conditioning and binoculars. The house is very nicely decorated, and just a great place to stay. There are many steps from the street to the house, so thankfully Oliver (and a driver he works with) are very gracious in helping with luggage. The location is kind of a mixed blessing. It's nice to be out of the city itself (I mean again, that view!) but we found it challenging (or expensive) to get places. The bus stop is indeed very close but unfortunately, we were never able to actually use it to go from the house because it didn't come often and when it did, it was full and just passed us by. That was frustrating. We did take the bus back from Amalfi and Ravello but that wasn't a great experience either. The walk to Amalfi is a good 30 minutes at least, so that's ok, but because you are walking on the winding road with cars, it's a bit to get used to. We loved walking to and from Atrani though (about 15 minutes) and the Mistral restaurant there (recommended by Oliver) was our favorite. We ended up using the car service Oliver recommended to get to Ravello, Maiori, Minori and Paestum. The car service was great, and comparably reasonably priced, but still expensive, so it would have been nice to have some less expensive realistic options. Overall, a really great experience and a really nice place to stay for our family.

Go...you'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our fabulous stay at House Oliver. Oliver welcomed us with open arms and enjoyed a wonderful glass of prosecco with us on the balcony, overlooking the million dollar view! It really is a fabulous view and we spent many hours just staring out to the sea, whether over a cup of coffee at breakfast or drinks in the evening…you will just love it. Oliver helped us with any questions and was always really quick to respond. We only met Lella, Oliver’s wife once, but she was very lovely.

We walked everywhere and although transport is available, the Amalfi Coast requires you to do a fair bit of walking, so you will definitely get fit, if you’re not already.

Oliver and Lella provided some provisions for breakfast and some home grown basil from the garden, which was so fresh and flavourful. We must also mention the lovely cleaning lady who we bumped into a couple of times, who was also very sweet and friendly and keeps the villa extremely clean. You really do get a sense of family when you are there and nothing is too much trouble. We were recommended a great little spot at the beach and frequently sat right at the front of the seaside…go, you’ll love it. Christine & Leon

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!
