Beautiful Setting and Gracious Host
The apartment overlooks the Bay of Naples and Capri. It is very clean and well stocked for a nice stay and you cannot beat the view - especially at sunset. The owner is quite lovely and helpful - arranging trips to the Almafi Coast and even sharing her Sunday ragu with us. Masa Lubrense is a small community outside of Sorrento - a good home base from which to explore the area.
The property was nice but payment problems with Homeaway
The property has a beautiful view and is away from the touristy areas but easy to get to them if you have a car or take the bus just up the street. There are nice restaurants within walking distance and the marina is close by as well with access to sightseeing ferries to Capri or Amalfi Coast. A car is recommended and day trips to Naples, Pompei, the Paestum Greek ruins, Positano etc. which are all easy to do from here. As long as the terms are to pay in full at booking time with Homeaway's full guarantee, this property is great.
Unfortunately, of all the places we booked through Homeaway et al, this was the only one that didn't ask for full payment upfront. We received reminders a few days ahead from Homeaway to pay the balance, so we paid on our credit card and received a receipt confirmation from Homeaway. Upon arrival, the hostess wanted us to pay the balance again in cash saying that she has a special contract with Homeaway. I showed her the receipt and there was a bunch of unsettling drama leaving us both calling Homeaway and in our case we have since received a $150+ phone bill for all the failed overseas calls related to this mess. Eventually someone at Homeaway confirmed to the hostess that the money was received and she just had to accept it, so she apologized to us although she was still mad at Homeaway. (We knew nothing of any special cash only arrangements, and we wouldn't have booked there if we'd known that as there would be no proof of payment or protection for us). Everything was fine for the next 4 nights, but then on the last night she called saying that Homeaway is saying they don't have the money any more(?!). Once again we spent two hours on phone calls overseas to Homeaway which kept getting cut off. Furious, we just paid cash so we could go for dinner before the restaurants closed as the stores already had.
Two evenings were ruined because of the strange payment issue, and sadly that is what we most remember of this stay.
My husband and I spent a week in Patrizia’s apartment (better described as a little cottage) and we really enjoyed it. We found it to be well furnished with everything that we needed and many things that one doesn’t always find in Italy, such as screens on all the windows, excellent lighting, a shower with plenty of hot water, and one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in. We spent many hours sitting in the garden enjoying the wonderful view of Capri and Ischia. The location is excellent; away from the crowds and chaos of Sorrento, but only a short walk into Massa Lubrense where there are restaurants, a grocery store, banks, and a convenient bus to Sorrento. Directly below the cottage is Marina della Lobra, with its restaurants on the sea where one can enjoy fresh fish. Patrizia made us feel instantly at home and was more than happy to do whatever she could to make our stay enjoyable, such as arranging a boat tour to Capri. We are looking forward to returning some day!
Jhon & Carol, my special guests, silent discreet, have greatly appreciated the long sunsets in the garden and walks around. When they left the house was clean and tidy .... that beautiful people
Well furnished to a high standard and attention to detail
The property is clean, well furnished with nice gardens and fantastic views. Modern interior, good air conditioning and a great bathroom. The host is most helpful if you need it but otherwise non intrusive. Highly recommended
Andrew and his wife exceptional guests ....recommend them
Wundervolle Woche bei Patrizia
Wir haben bei Patrizia und Ihrem Mann Per Luigi die wundervollste
Woche unseres Urlaubs verbracht. Die Unterkunft ist genau wie beschrieben und die Aussicht auf das Meer und Capri unvergesslich.
Wir lieben den kleinen Ort Massa und werden auf alle Fälle dorthin zurückkehren! Patrizia ist eine wunderbare, hilfsbereite Gastgeberin.
Beate Dank für die wunderbare Kritik, Sie waren perfekt Gäste und wird ein Vergnügen sein, Sie wieder Gastgeber ... wir warten
Patrizia e Pierluigi
Lovely bungalow and garden in a quiet village. Our hosts were kind and relaxed ! Would reccomend
Glenn and his wife, two exemplary guests...... recommend them
It 'easy to fall for Massa Lubrense, for those who love peace and unpolluted sea and in the same context, the nightlife of Sorrento just a ten minute drive.
