About the property

Nice two bedroom house for 8 people with sea view & big terrace

The house is only 50 meters from the 'Bikini' beach. The terrace of the house Gives an extraordinary view of Naples gulf.

The House Has Two bedrooms and it's an ideal accommodation for a large family or a group of friends. Anche Accommodation includes a full equipped kitchen / living room and two bathrooms. The best part of the house, However, is the terrace with the beautiful view of the Naples gulf. The entrance to the Bikini beach is just below the house (20 meters).

We have just refurbished the bedrooms and the kitchen. The bathrooms are clean and functional.

The best way to explore Sorrento Coast, Pompeii and Naples is the Circumvesuviana Train Station. From the house you can reach the Scrajo station (400m) or Vico station (2 km).

In summertime there are 3 trains per hour, However, please check the timetable.

The house has now Wi-Fi as we gave our teen-ager daughters.

For large groups (8+), we have an adjacent house that can host up to 5 people.

Nice two bedroom house on the Sorrento coast in front of the beach
average rating of 4.6666665 based on 21 reviews

Fabulous stay

  • 4 of 5

A fabulous place to base yourself to explore the Sorrento Peninsula and the surrounding area.

The property is as described, easy to find with the excellent directions sent from Gennaro. There are fabulous views of the Bay. Genaro is great with any queries that you have and replies really quickly to anything you ask.

Like everywhere in this region the roads are busy and the Italian drivers take a bit of getting used to. The train is a great alternative but the nearest station (Scrajo) was closed for the duration of our stay and didn't appear on the timetables we saw. Catching the train in Vico Equense is easy enough though and if you don't fancy the 1.3km walk, there is a manned car park really close which is good value.

It was our first time to this part of Italy and we loved it. Don't expect peace and tranquility it is vibrant and busy pretty much wherever you go. Great time !!

Great jumping off point for the sights of the Sorrento to Naples coast

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, which includes 3 kids in the 12-16 range, spent 5 nights here in late June and it was perfect for our needs. The place is not fancy, but was exactly as advertised and was a perfect jumping off point for the start of our adventures in Italy. Items of note that I think would help a fellow traveler include the following:

* Gennaro was a kind, responsive and helpful owner. Communication was easy and quick. The deposit was returned very quickly and without any difficulty.

* The house is perfectly located, roughly half-way between Sorrento and Naples. It's 10 minutes by car to Pompeii, 20 minutes to Mt. Vesuvius and around 30-40 minutes to Naples and Sorrento.

* The town of Vico Equense, which is charming and has wonderful restaurants, is a quick 5 minute drive (2km's). We highly recommend Tito's for dining and Gabrielle's for gelato (and cheese).

* The house also includes a parking space, which is vital, as a car is a necessity if you stay at this house. Be forewarned, as nice, warm and welcoming that the Italians are, Petrol seems to have a Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde effect on them, with the insaneness increasing as the number of wheels decreases. Driving is 'an experience'. I'll leave it at that.

* There is a wonderful deli within a 1 minute walk named Oasi. They have all the basics and make wonderful sandwiches called Saltimbocca's. We all loved them. Excellent to-go coffee in the morning as well.

* The beach across the street is a beach club as is 95% of the beaches in the area. Bikini Beach was a little too pretentious for us, so we spent our beach day in the area at Scrajo (5-7 minute walk), which we enjoyed. You need to bring or buy your own beach towels.

The only nits that I have is that the washing machine was a bit temperamental and didn't really clean our clothes and the mattresses are a bit dated and somewhat uncomfortable. It might be time to replace both.

While this is a 5 star review, it should be noted that the house as clearly depicted in Homeaway's pictures, is a 3* property. Its clean, functional and the AC works well in both the bedrooms. There is also a lovely outside terrace with wonderful views of the Bay of Naples. Its a 5* due to the excellent combination of location, price, owner service and the accommodation. I'd enthusiasticly recommend to family and friends visiting the area and brave (crazy?) enough to drive. It was perfect for us.

Amazing Amalfi Coast Sunsets over the Bay of Naples

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location!

This lovely family home serves as an outstanding home base for those who look to pack in as much into a vacation as possible. The two bedrooms and private bathrooms at opposite ends of this rustic home offers privacy while the expansive terrace delivers spectacular sunsets every night of the week.

Make a left and head to Vico Equense, a small, charming village with markets, shops and a great restaurant -Tito's (ask for Frederico) or try others. After a break, drive further to explore Sorrento, Amalfi and Postiano (depending on how many cappuccinos you start your day with) or even arrange a private boat tour of Capri.

Be captivated by the ever present lemon trees of the local area (several on the property) and blossoming olive trees (mid-May) as these sites and scents mingle with the salty air of the sea and the breathtaking view!

Make a right and you can visit Naples and Pompeii conveniently either by car or train. If you would like to take a leisurely day off, just leave the car behind and walk to the stunning Bikini Beach accessible safely from the property. All the conveniences- beach chairs, changing rooms, umbrellas and an extensive snack bar- remember it is "Eataly" as much as Italy!

The full and well equipped kitchen invites mornings, afternoons and evenings full of cooking (all made with the finest produce and food available from the many nearby local markets). If you are not an aspiring chef just walk down stairs and savor the delicious food from Oasi, voted best roadside food for the past two years!

A special note to light sleepers- location, location, location means road traffic so be sure to pack ear plugs or bring CDs to play on the provided system. Good food and fine wine tends to soften the road noises. Whatever your concern, the owner Gennaro, is gracious, helpful, attentive and responds immediately to your questions or concerns from inquiry to follow up after your departure.

You will not be disappointed in this authentic Italian home nor by the warm hospitality of the owner and local residents!

Beautiful terrace overlooking Gulf of Naples

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time here. The large terrace with spectacular view on the Gulf of Naples was terrific. The house was clean and spacious. The houseowner was extremely friendly, making sure that everything was OK several times and offering his help when we needed it. We love to come back one day.
