Great location, lacklustre amenities
The apartment is fantastically located and has wonderful views of the piazza surrounding streets . We found the set up a little unusual for the size and number of beds. There is only one North American style shower which is on the second level, with access via a walk through of a bedroom. The second full bathroom has a bath tub with a shower attachment that has no wall hook - easy fix that is recommended. We were greeted on time and received a warm welcome from Maria who was helpful with all our questions. There is a washer /dryer, however remember to buy detergent . We thought there was some on hand and unfortunately we were stuck the last night searching a store to buy some . The living space is very large , however it is not set up for people to use. if your are 3-6 people there is limited and awkward seating in the living room. The AC worked in the kitchen , however the bedroom units did not work, so be prepared if it is during hot weather . It was a disappointing last day , as we had misunderstandings around departure arrangements. We were told a certain time and this changed that morning creating some frustration. Overall , a great place if you are looking for space, cleanliness and awesome location
Warning - Under renovations! Noisy and no privacy
Major exterior construction is underway on the property and this was concealed from us. To our surprise and disappointment we arrived to find huge scaffolding down one entire side of the building, rendering 6 of the 8 windows in the apartment unusable. Workers began at 7am yelling, sledgehammering and grinding. We had no privacy and our sense of security was greatly affected as they were working outside of old doors that had poor locks. It spoiled our stay in Sorrento. Avoid this property if you can. They have a high rating but clearly lack integrity. When we told the manager we were not pleased she did not think to inform us about the construction we were offered an extra night, which we could not use due to other “paid in full” accommodations following it. We asked for a partial refund as compensation instead and received no reply after two attempts. Be ware! The workers we spoke to said the construction would last another 3-4 months. You have the right to know this before booking this property. This trip meant a lot to our family and it was very disappointing to be deceived about this property.
I apologize again for the inconvenience of the rennovation and for not getting back to the message you left us few days after your departure.
The scaffolding have been taken off 2 days after your departure and there are no more rennovation going on at the apartment or the building.
The workers you spoke with, clearly did not speak english well enough and probably meant to say that the works went on for almost 4 months, instead than a couple, because of the bad weather we had the past winter.
During the entire time of the rennovation (stucco and painting basically) of the exterior of the building we kept the apartment closed.
We were told from the company that we could have open the bookings from the 1st of May. Unfortunately they took 2 extra weeks.
As you also mentioned in your review we offered an extra night at the apartment to compensate the inconvenience. We never received an asnwer to that offer or we would have gladly help you find another accomodation for your stay and gave you the refund for the nights you would have not spent at our apartment.
Great apartment in great area
We stayed at this apartment for three nights with our 3 college age kids. It had more than enough room for us and we loved the location. We could walk everywhere, to shops, restaurants and the marinas. Staff was very easy and friendly to work with. We hope to return some day!
Our Spring 2017 stay at Tasso Square apartment was prefection
We stayed for a week in early April 2017 (family of 5, with our three adult children). The apartment is every bit as nice as the pictures with a perfect location overlooking Tasso Square. It was great to people watch from the balcony with some wine and cheese in hand. Michele (local contact along with Heidi), was very helpful - gave us a run through on how everything worked in the apartment (washer, dryer, WiFi, trash recycle schedule, etc). He was also available via phone and helpful with a few questions we had during the stay (even his restaurant recommendation was excellent). I really have no criticisms - perfect location and perfect place.
Be prepared to have your breath taken away when you set foot in this apartment! I don't think you could find a bigger or more grand 3 bedroom apartment on the Amalfi Coast. The lounge which we dubbed the 'ballroom' is amazing with balconies looking over the main square in Sorrento. Everything is just a short walk away and it made our holiday stress free and easy....even when we accidentally locked ourself out of the apartment, Heidi was able to come down and let us straight back in. Great place, beautiful town and we highly recommend it!!
Comfortable apartment in the best location in town.
Exactly as advertised. Nicely, but somewhat sparsely, furnished.
If you like people-watching, the balcony overlooking the square is the best ever.
Really helpful owner, and managed by a great Italian & American couple so no language issues..
