Nello Massa Lubrense Villa
We enjoyed our stay at Nello’s villa. However there were a few unpleasant surprises which we were not prepared for. First, we were not told that we would have to share the property with other couples that were renting the upstairs property. In fact the listing did not mention that the property has two properties, an upstairs and a downstairs property. Nor we’re the upstairs renters told about the downstairs property. This led to considerable confusion regarding parking spaces and sharing the pool. Fortunately the upstairs tenants and the downstairs tenants were able to work things out without any input or help from the two owners. Second, the property did not have any hand soap or shampoo or paper towels and only one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom for a week’s rental. So we had to go out and purchase these basic items which any hotel would supply. Third. The kitchen utensils were sorely lacking. For example there was no spatula for cooking. Although the VRBO property description boasts that the property has a brick pizza oven, there were no pizza pans or pizza paddles at the property or matches to light the brick oven. Therefore we had to purchase our own pizza pans to make a pizza. We donated two pizza pans to the property so future renters will be able to make a pizza. However, the location and views made it a pleasant stay.
First of all, thank you for the positive judgment. As for the comments, I point out that the presence of a second property in the same building and the pool sharing are clearly shown in the property description on the Homeaway site and also referred to in the pamphlet I sent after the reservation.
For other issues exposed, a simple phone call or e-mail to our receptionist Sonia would have allowed us to resolve the problems. For example, all the equipment for the external oven is in a shed in the garden adjacent to the oven. I reiterate that in the pamphlet I clearly have the problem solver function of the receptionist, indispensable for simply managing the small problems that may arise.
Spectacular views and location
We were a group of ten adults that enjoyed a fantastic vacation at this Villa. The pictures do not do justice of the property. We rented 3 small cars and were easily able to travel to Sorrento and other towns in the area. The pool is beautiful after a day of sightseeing, the rooms are comfortable. The common areas are perfect for gathering together. We had a lovely vacation.
È sempre un piacere constatare il gradimento di chi è stato in vacanza in Villa, godendo della bellezza dei luoghi e del confortevole soggiorno negli ambienti interni ed esterni.
We arrived for 8 days at the villa with our 5 children from the US. The property was fantastic...exactly as described. Unbelievable views and sunsets. The location was idea for us to get to Capri, Positano and Ravello. We were able to go boating, swimming, relax at private beach clubs and visit all of the wonderful local sites. They are not kidding about the ants...it is important to keep food up and not drop crumbs or they will come out in full force. That is a small inconvenience for such a special place. I would highly recommend this home...it was perfect!
Ospiti che hanno lasciato tutto in perfette condizioni ed hanno saputo godere la bellezza dei luoghi.Complimenti. Nello Polese
Excellent, exactly as stated and a holiday of a lifetime
Greated on arrival in the local village. Nothing too much trouble and WOW what a villa and view, great access to the sea. Private pool was amazing and clean. We were a group of 13 with 7 children ( two teenagers) they had an amazing time. A must do would be the pizza cooking experience 100% thanks to Sonia she was fabulous! We will be back 😀�
Our family had a great time at this villa. The view is simply breathtaking!
The owner, Nello is very nice and helpful, so is Sonia, the house manager. We were greeted by both of them and Nello's wife upon our arrival with some wines & Italian delicacies. The house is big & beautiful. The pool is perfect overlooking Capri island.
However, it only needs a few improvements & upgrading in order to make it more comfortable.
1) It's listed 7 bedrooms but in fact, it's 4 good size bedrooms with Air conditioning , 1 medium kids room with no AC, 2 very tiny rooms with no AC. Unfortunately, we couldn't open the windows because there are too many mosquitos. I would recommend some fans in those rooms as it gets very warm & stuffy with the doors closed.
2) The house is infected with ants. Although we've been warned in the house rules booklet not to leave any food outside, the ants invasion was beyond our expectations. If you have kids, you have to be extremely careful as 1 drop of any crust or even toothpaste can result into an invasion of ants. Despite our utmost efforts to keep it very clean and spray ants repellent regularly, there was just so much ants at time that it was very unpleasant.
3) The kitchen stove was a bit difficult at time to operate as the fire won't lit up.
But overall, we had an amazing time at this house. The amazing view outshines it all. The beautiful village of Massa Lubrense is down the road and Sorrento is nearby. You do need a car as taxis are extremely expensive!
Exceeded our expectatations
We stayed here for week with 11 people, including seven adults and four children. The property was spacious and well laid out; each family had their own separate area with two bedrooms and a bath and a large great room to get together. There were also two large decks and a pool deck each offering amazing views of the Mediterranean, Vesuvius and Capri. The sunsets were absolutely stunning. Nello and his brother (the owners) and Sonja (property manager) met us at the property to make for quick and easy check in. Sonja arranged multiple excursions, dinners at the property and provided local recommendations that were fantastic, and made our planning very easy. I highly recommend the on-property dinners; we had a pizza night and pasta night. The chef Titina was a wonderful and the food and service was top notch.
I opened my vacation residence to guests, above all to share, with those who arrive, the beauty of the places that surround us and the quality of those who help me in facilitating the organization of visits to the surroundings, in trying good food, in choosing walks according to one's tastes, keeping the pool and gardens in order. I am therefore happy with the appreciation and I find in them a pleasant consonance in the ability to appreciate life.
