A very pleasant 4 days in Positano

  • 5 of 5

We (my wife and I) enjoyed a great stay at Guesthouse Gilda in early September. The location, the serenity, and the views were all outstanding. The owner-hosts were charming and fun (despite difficulty in communicating given our ignorance of Italian) and the staff (who were able to communicate with us in our native tongue) were great too. Oh and the cats were pleasant and charming too.

We cooked some of our own suppers in our kitchen and ate out on the terrace - fun. We traveled to Positano in a private rental car and we took advantage of the private parking offered, at additional cost. That worked out fine for us even given the hair-raising experience that driving the Amalfi Coast is known for. We only took the car out to travel to other towns along the coast.

Be advised, the town itself is not outside the front door. We walked into town multiple times (less than 1km to the one-way road through the lower town), it was a bit challenging at first, but the views along the way and the "being immersed in the day-to-day experience" made it worth it for us over the public bus line that stops right outside the door - which we also took.

We'd stay there again and we recommend it to others.

A special place - view, comfort, hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our visit to Positano in large part due to our good fortune in choosing Holiday House Gilda for our stay. We felt right at home with Gilda and her family the moment we met on our arrival. They are amazingly warm and loving people, who opened their home and hearts to us throughout our stay. The views of Positano from our room were breathtaking, and the location was perfect for us -- walking distance to town, but away from the hustle and bustle. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning in the open air kitchen was the perfect way to start the day. Rosa went out of her way to help us in recommending things to do and helping with travel arrangements. Her restaurant recommendations were superb and easy since she arranged for a car from the restaurant to pick us up and take us back after dinner. We have wonderful memories of our stay and highly recommend Holiday House Gilda!

Warm hospitality, spacious apartment, peaceful and scenic location overlooking Positano.

  • 5 of 5

Gilda and her daughters were warm, extremely helpful hosts. It is like visiting a second cousin you've never met in a foreign country, and they want you to have a perfect vacation so they treat you with familial affection and give lots of support.

We loved staying just outside of Positano where it is quieter and more verdant. There is a convenient walkway with approx 230 steps down to the nicest beach in the area, the Arienza beach club. There you can sit for free on one side or utilize the beach club for a small fee. Chair, umbrella and table and also towel rental available. The restaurant at the beach club was really good and the staff are very friendly. Frozen cocktails were excellent too and not too expensive (€8). It is helpful but not necessary to make a reservation.

We walked to Positano and back one evening for dinner. Other evenings Rosa suggested 3 different restaurants who came at our chosen time to shuttle us back as forth. All 4 of the recommendations were truly excellent. I will review them all 5 or 4.5 stars. We also utilized the local bus, regional bus and water taxi all of which are right there to use! You will enjoy comfortable and extremely spacious lodgings with a world class view and locale. The hosts were the best part along with the views. A delightful and authentic Italian family experience. We hope to return again someday!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Holiday House Gilda, just outside Positano and an easy walk into town. Also good bus service. Great greeting on arrival, nice balcony overlooking the sea, Positano and the mountains and coast. In fact the view was so good we had no idea what to do with the view!!! And they will arrange for grocery delivery! Lots to do along the coast, places to see, pictures to take. Good kitchen, air, nice family, breakfast if u wish.

Perfect place to fall in love with Positano!

  • 5 of 5

Rosa and all the wonderful woman of Holiday House Gilda made our time in Positano so effortless and special. They were extremely helpful and so pleasant!

Our suite was more than enough, with amazing views from both rooms. Gilda cooks a delicious breakfast every morning (well worth the 5€) while you overlook the panoramic views of Positano!

Steps away from Arienzo beach (my favorite Positano beach), the path down is so enchanting that it's half the fun!

I recommend 100% and cannot wait to come back!

Fantastico!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this holiday house overlooking the sea! Rosa and our adopted italian family were perfect hosts during our stay. Room was spacious, AC worked well, water pressure was great in the shower, and the view is incredible! We didn't cook in our room but we used the shared kitchen facilities with the balcony overlooking the ocean on a daily basis for delicious breakfasts and just chilling after visiting Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, and Praiano. The bus stop is pretty much right outside the front door of the complex, but if you feel like walking, it is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk into the center of Positano. Steps from the property also directly lead to the beach below if you want to take a dip in the ocean. Rosa made perfect recommendations for us including local restaurants (which will come pick you up and bring you back home), bus/ferry times, day trips, and local attractions. Note also, the end of the incredible Path of the Gods hike is very close to this villa, so you won't have far to walk to get home once you come down the 1,500 steps at the end of the hike. Probably our favoriet place we have ever stayed during our many trips to Europe. 10 out of 10 stars, Molte Grazie!!!
