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!

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!

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!!!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 7 days staying at Holiday House Gilda! What a perfect location, and wonderful hosts. We loved waking up to Gilda and Guiseppe making us a delicious breakfast, with a view. We looked forward to evenings in the garden overlooking the sea while we drank wine and read books. The proximity to incredible hiking was a real highlight. Rosa was awesome, and always there to help with advise on where to eat or what to see on a given excursion. This was the best vacation ever! Grazie mille from Cati and Corrine!!!!

Exceptional!! View and hospitality couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out renting a room in this gorgeous location by chance. Not knowing anything about Positano, we chose this place at random...and we couldn't have done it better. The hosts were warm and helpful; the views were simply spectacular; and having off-street parking was a bonus. We were able to stay only 3 nights on our tour of Italy...this is a place to stay for a while and relax.
