Great stay in Sorrento!
My family and I had a wonderful time in Sorrento. Mario’s HomeAway was very spacious and comfortable. We were within walking distance from the ocean and multiple cafe’s and restaurants. There was a small misunderstanding on my part and Mario was very gracious to me about it. He made our stay very comfortable!
Would definitely recommend!
We arrived on Sunday and there was no construction but the building was covered in scaffolding. Mario , the building manager who met us told us they are taking it down on Monday. Monday morning construction workers were working and there was no sign of taking the scaffolding down. Construction in progress was very laud and we had workers right outside of our windows making a lot of noise. The apartment is very very close to railroad track. Windows blocked because of construction which made the apartment very dark even with all the lights on. In the detail description it only mentions that the train station is 250 meter away but it does not say the railroad track is only 20 feet from the walls of the building. The train runs from 7am-11pm. We wanted to move out right away but the property manager could not meet us until the next day. We had to find another place over night.
Mario, the property manager told us he would credit us our entire money ( we had reserved 4 nights) if we do not give him a bad review! We don’t want anyone else to be in our shoes. Our vacation was ruined because of this . It’s not easy to find a hotel or apartment overnight in the high season in a foreign
Country. We received a credit for only 3 nights and not the 4 nights that Mario promised us because of inconvenience.
Sorrento Stay - July 2019
Mario, the property manager was very communicative throughout the booking process and was very helpful in answering questions prior to our arrival. He provided us with local knowledge about the places we planned to visit while there. The checkin was a bit clunky. Attempting to meet up at the property proved challenging at rush hour. The property building is undergoing outside renovation resulting is exterior windows that can’t be looked out of. That was not a big problem as there is not much to see. The interior is completely renovated with all the comforts of a modern apartment. The air conditioners were terrific and definitely needed as temperatures were above 90F every day we were there. There are two bedrooms which was too much room for just my wife and I. Recommended for two couples or a family of four. The train runs pretty close to the apartment so there is some occasional noise from it. The location offers a quick ten minute walk to old town Sorrento with all the charm, shopping, and restaurants one would want. Close to train station and rental car pickup and drop off. Definitely would go back.
Our family of four loved our stay in this apartment. Mario was super helpful and the apartment had everything we needed. We really appreciated the sun room for drying all our washing, and the air conditioning worked well.
Could have been better
Mario met us at the property and promptly told us that unfortunately there was building work going on outside of the property and most of the windows were covered with a wooden panel. This made the living areas so dark we had to put the lights on during the day. Mario did offer us a refund if we wanted to find accommodation somewhere else, which was good but we had arrived late in the afternoon and would be out on the pavement with nowhere to go. We had been communicating with Mario before we arrived and at no time did he mention any problems with the building. If we had been given the information earlier we would have booked somewhere else. The accommodation was spacious and in a good position to walk to town. The outside and entry to the building was not good.
Top notch apartment
You will love this apartment. Clean, roomy, great location. Mario is a wonderful host. He gave us excellent suggestions and recommendations, from local things to see, transportation, and excellent local restaurants. Would be happy to stay here again.
The apartment is located in the center of Sorrento, a few meters from the intersection of Via degli Aranci and Corso Italia, the main course of Sorrento. The main entrance (driveway and pedestrian) of the condominium is located on Viale Montariello; the secondary entrance, only pedestrian, is located on Via degli Aranci. The area is well served and offers all services. The train and bus station is about 250 meters from the apartment. An ideal location for those who want to fully experience the area, visiting the surroundings and suburbs of Sorrento, and of course using public transportation for excursions to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples, Capri and the islands, Positano, Ravello and the Amalfi coast.
