They told us:

"Best place for that price."

We spent 3 nights at Serenity house in beautiful town of Massa Lubrence. The house is everything the owners said it will be, cousy 1 room apartment with exelent vievs from the terrace, were you can spend all your day :) because we want to see all the amalfi coast towns,we didn't hawe inough time to relax in that terrace. The owners were very nice too, and gave all the information we needed with their numbers if any questions we had to help us. The amalfi coast was amazing....I promise my self that i will come back there couple years later.

"A perfect base for exploring Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast"

The apartment was clean, airy and a perfect base for our stay in the lovely town of Massa Labrense. The view from the roof terrace was as stunning - everything is just as it looks in the pictures. The owner and his family were extremely welcoming and spoke excellent English which helped us settle in and provided us with some suggestions of where to explore during our stay. Massa is a lovely town with friendly, welcoming people. There are a few cafes/bars and restaurants. Our favourite within the town was La Primervera, part of the hotel of the same name, where you can eat on an open-sided terrace taking in the view. Also excellent was La Torre restaurant - family run and extremely popular with the locals, offering fantastic views from it's position high on the hillside. Just make sure you arrange for the owner to pick you up - it's quite a walk!!! The fishing village below Massa also has a great restaurant Feniculi Fenicula with friendly staff who speak good English. We enjoyed a couple of excellent meals there overlooking the busy little harbour with the island of Capri as a backdrop. We look forward to returning to Serenity House to continue exploring a truly beautiful part of the world.

"A very nice place to stay on the Amalfi Coast"

A very nice accommodation in the lovely little town of Massa Lubrense, near Sorrento. The location is ideal, the owners are very nice and available. The apartment is handy and well-equipped, it is really a good value for money. +++ : the terrace at the third floor, with an amazing panoramic view of the bay. We highly recommend it !

"Simple and sweet little studio"

we spent five nights here in August. A sweet little town with easy access to sorrento from where buses to amalfi Coast and Naples are frequent. The owners are friendly and met us in the town square to drive us back to the apartment. The accommodation itself is a smallish studio with basic cooking facilities, a large comfortable bed and a tiny bathroom. This was generally fine for us as we did not spend a huge amount of time in the room. At night with both windows open is reasonably comfortable. The windows opened up onto the family garden (they live next door) so we kept them open all day and it felt perfectly safe. Up stairs (3 flights) is a terrace with a fab view of the sea and Capri island in the distance. We ate dinner up here a couple of times and it was lovely. One or two small criticisms would be that the owners could make more of the terrace, there are two Chairs and a little table but perhaps some sun loungers and a few pot plants? We thought it was a nice space but needed a bit of attention and updating. Having said that the apartment was good value. There is a lovely beach reachable by bus (30 mins from town square) I would recommend this place if you want a simple, quiet spot from which to explore the surrounding areas. One thing to note is that the buses are cheap and frequent but you do generally have to go into sorrento to catch a connecting bus to get anywhere.

"Perfect base, off the beaten track, for a superb Sorrentine holiday"

We stayed for 10 days in September at Serenity House. The apartment is great for a couple. Clean, bright studio, with plenty of sunshine and fresh air through the big windows. Tidy and modern bathroom, with good little kitchen area too. The roof terrace is up a flight of stairs, but has the most amazing views. Watching the sun go down over the Bay, while the church bells chime, with a Birra or two is a perfect end to a days touring about. The apartment is out of the main town. A short 3 min walk on the Massa to Agata road (great little patisserie as soon as you get to Massa too). We used buses to get about. Very easy and reasonably cheap, and much preferable to driving. Most of the roads are quite hairy (and some of the driving is scary too). Much happier/safer to use to public transport. Massa doesn't have many restaurants. But this forces you visit amazing fresh fruit and veg shops. There's a couple of butchers, and as an old fishing port, some excellent fishmongers too. And it's all so cheap. Highly recommend just using the kitchen in the apartment and cooking your own food from what's on offer in Massa. Plenty to do in this part of Italy. We had day trips to Sorrento, Pompeii, Amalfi, Positano, the Isle of Capri, and Ischia too, over our 10 day stay. Great trip, made all the better by staying at Serenity House!

"Excellent little apartment met our needs perfectly."

We travelled to Massa Lubrensa by bus and were met by the owner in the square within a few minutes of calling him. He took us to the apartment in his car where his daughter, who spoke excellent English, met us and explained everything. She told us about the location, where and how to catch the buses, the beaches, the restaurants, etc. There was an excellent folder with all the local details including maps, and bus, ferry & train timetables plus plenty of other brochures left by others. The apartment had everything we needed. It was clean and functional. A big rear window opens out onto the owners garden so we felt safe and left this open all the time to ensure we had fresh air circulating (there is no air con but it wasn't needed). It is ideal for two people but no more. There is no balcony or terrace immediately attached to the ground floor apartment but you have access to the roof terrace with its amazing views. Watching the sun go down over the Bay of Naples with a glass of wine was sensational! At night it was very quiet although you do get woken by the crow of cockerals in the morning. Although the apartment is out of the main town on the Massa to Agata road, within 50m of the apartment is a quiet path you can walk down to get to the town centre (takes about 5-10 mins). Quite a climb but you get used to this in the Sorrento area! We found the location ideal. We used the buses extensively as they left from the town square every 20 minutes for Sorrento and ran until 23:20 back to Massa. We used day bus passes at 7.20 each where you could travel all over the Sorrento and Amalfi coast. We also found a path down from the town to Massa Lubrensa port (about 25 min walk downhill, uphill on the way back). The port is a little gem. Massa only had three restaurants that we could find but all seemed OK. Plenty to do in and around Sorrento. We included day visits (using bus, train and ferry) to Sorrento, Pompei, Amalfi and the Isle of Capri in our 6 day stay. We just wished we had stayed longer!

"Lovely Stay"

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in Dec-Jan. It was lovely! Luigi checked us in and was waiting for us exactly where and when was expected. His family owns the apartment and lives right next door if you need any help or have questions. There are busses about every hour to Sorrento and from there you can go to Naples, Amalfi etc. We had everything needed for cooking and overall it was great! The only thing was it was a bit chilly in the apartment. It is a charming town and a charming apartment!

Fantastic stay with a family feel

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great condition. One large room divided in a very functional way. It has several windows where the air can just flow in. Fridge, 2 gas cooking plates, sink, separate bathroom with shower over WC and beautiful views from the bed and shower into the lovely garden. Plenty of room for 2 and even for a child. We had the roof terrace which is about 30qm just for us. The sunset from there was amazing as you can see in the picture. The whole family made our stay even more fantastic as they are all super friendly and helpful. We also were able to enjoy some of the amazing tasting fruits out of the garden. Will definitely come back there one day. Thank you for everything.

Super App., Hervorragende Versorgung, Ausblick pur

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment war durchweg super und die Gastgeber absolut zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Wir waren zu zweit eine Woche dort und haben absolut nichts zu beanstanden. Preis/Leistung war ebenfalls wahnsinnig gut. Der Ausblick von der Dachterrasse sucht seinesgleichen.

Ein weiterer wichtiger Punkt, es gibt direkt nebenan einen sehr großen Parkplatz (wir haben gelernt, dass Parkmöglichkeiten in der Gegend wirklich Mangelware sind).

Ein paar Eckpunkte die wir uns zusammengeschrieben haben:

- Abwicklung: Super unkompliziert und angenehm

- Am ersten Abend bekamen wir eine umfangreiche Einführung was wir uns ansehen können etc.

- Dachterrasse: Wahnsinn (man sieht auf den Bildern leider nicht wie cool der Ausblick wirklich ist)

- Im Appartment lagen ohne Ende Informationsbroschüren bereit für alle Sehenswürdigkeiten

- Anbindung an Sorrento mit dem Wagen war auch super

- Bett war bequem

- Wifi hatte durchgehend > 6Mbit

Den nächsten Urlaub in Sorrento werden wir gesichert auch wieder im Serenity Haus buchen.

An dieser Stelle nochmals vielen Dank an die Gastgeber, hochverdiente 5 Sterne.

A lovely apartment with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend Serenity House for those who want to live in a little, Italian village near a bigger town. The hosts were very nice and kind to us. The staying was affordable and for those who want to stay cheap, this is the place to be.

A short summary of our staying at the Serenity House:

Pros:

- A beautiful apartment with a good location

- It was easy to get to Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano by bus

- The top floor had a amazing view over the islands of Capri and Ischia

- The village of Massa Lubrense was small and nice

Cons:

- There was no air condition in the apartment so it could be a little hot. There was only one fan that we used very frequently.

- The freezer was a little bit to small and it was not the right temperature for ice cream. It melted :(

We will forever appreciate your kindness and all help we got!

Thank you once again!

low-cost apartment in very nice village

  • 3 of 5

very nice and cooperative people; apartment is stuffed with acceptable equipment, don't expect luxury or details; handicapped shower due to small place (may be 2m in square for toilet and shower and washing place); bed is comfortable, room has high ceiling and silent neighbours upstairs; street traffic is close; village is highlight, not so much tourism, beach is very nice and close.........

Nice location for in the city country living

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location very close to the city of Sorrento in an ecotourist setting with fruit trees, kind hosts and peaceful living.

We enjoyed the safety of the city of Massa Lubrense, and its kind people who will drop whatever they are doing to help you, or engage you in spite of language differences! The city has its own flavor with concerts at the plaza, nice restaurants, excellent views of the coast and the islands. It is position strategically, as it allows access to the beautiful cities along the coast without the noise and traffic - visitors blend nicely with locals in a setting that inspires peace and joy.

The facilities, simple and humble, provide an excellent and safe home base to explore the region. All appliances and needed utensils are provided and are all in good working condition.

Serena, our beautiful young hostess, provided all the assistance we needed to make our excursions to Capri amazingly beautiful, by connecting us with a private boat service that included a lovely and knowledgeable guide. Her recommendations for restaurants were timely and accurate.

Luigi provided timely phone directions that got us to the town's main plaza, where Serena met us to guide us to the house.

My wife and I will forever appreciate Serena and her mom's kind morning gift of freshly harvested fruits. Thank you! Thank you!

Owner's Response: The our little city is in a privileged panoramic position, occupies the extreme tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, among the most famous tourist destinations in Italy, thanks to its stunning natural scenery. Extending into the Tyrrhenian Sea, almost touching the island of Capri, it is a watershed between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno. The charm of the village combined with the beauty of the tourist areas around us, famous worldwide, makes it unique and wonderful stay to our guests. Thank you

Klein und angenehm

  • 3 of 5

Ich war eine Woche in Massa Lubrense. Serena hat mich am Platz abgeholt und mir alles sehr gut erklärt. Es gibt auch noch zusätzlich Info-Material in der Wohnung. Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht und ist sehr sauber und zentral gelegen.Freundliche Atmosphäre im Haus. Wlan perfekt.

Schade, dass es auf der Dachterrasse keine Stühle/Tisch gab. Die ist nämlich fantastisch, da könnte man was wunderschönes draus machen.
