BEAUTIFUL SEA VIEW is a house surrounded by greenery on two levels.
The first floor consists of a spacious living room with a sofa bed, a kitchen, a master bedroom with attached full bathroom with shower and a second bathroom complete with shower. The lounge and bedroom have access to a wide terrace with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Amalfi. The terrace is equipped with table, chairs and parasol.
The second floor consists of a large sea view ROOM with a double bed plus a sofa bed and additional pull-out beds (4 beds in total), a small full bathroom with shower.
Access to the house, going down via steps (40 steps), from private parking (two parking spaces) located on the road from the center of Conca down to the sea.
From here you access the terrace overlooking the sea and equipped GARDEN with table and chairs.
The house is ideal for two couples, but also large families (4-8 people).
The property is situated in a very quiet area of Conca dei Marini, surrounded by greenery, and easily accessible from Via Miramare, the road that connects the upper part of the country with the coastal road.
It is located just 4 km from Amalfi, reachable in about an hour on foot.
The property comprises 2 apartments with separate entrance and with the same stunning views of the Gulf of Amalfi:
- BEAUTIFUL SEA VIEW, an apartment on 2 levels of 120 sqm with 4-8 beds located on the first floor.
- MAGIC SEA VIEW, an apartment of 60 square meters with 2-4 beds located on the ground floor.
Both units remain within the typical vaulted ceilings.
The beach is located 700 m from the apartment reached on foot within 20 minutes via stairways surrounded by greenery and picturesque streets.
During the summer months, 100 m from the house, on request, there is a free shuttle service to get directly to the private beach of "CAPO di CONCA BEACH". Furthermore, during the summer months, the school bus runs between CONCA BASSA and CONCA ALTA.
The house is situated a 20-minute walk from the beach, 10 minutes walk from the bus stop, 10 minutes walk from the town center with shops and restaurants.
A small supermarket (with delivery free service) is located in Conca Alta, 500 m from the house, within 10 minutes of walking distance. Nearby, there is also an excellent restaurant and pizzeria "Le bontà del capo" with free WiFi and free transportation.
The house has no air conditioning, but the thick walls protect it from the heat.
It is also equipped with heating system.
The area is visited by tourists all year around, even in winter, especially during Christmas time.
The house is undisturbed by tourist traffic and it's position in Conca dei Marini (4 Km from Amalfi, 15 km from Positano) makes it ideal, in a central and strategic position to visit the entire Amalfi Coast.

Tourists who come to visit Venice (half hour by train from Padua) may have help from us and park your car in our garage.
Silvia Maffini purchased this house in 2006
The house belonged to an uncle of my husband bought it in 1974 when there wasn’t any road yet.
When his uncle passed away a few years ago, we discovered this place and fell in love.
In 2015 we decided to renovate on the ground floor the apartment MAGIC SEA VIEW with the same stunning views of the Gulf of Amalfi: it is a gem!
BEAUTIFUL SEA VIEW preserves the original domes of 600 with original decorations of the time. At the entrance to the domed ceiling it is 5 meters high.
MAGIC SEA VIEW: apartment just completed, with Vietri ceramics in the floors and bathrooms that embellish the rooms.
The typical vaulted ceilings and original rounded walls make the environment.
The view from the terraces is breathtaking.
At any time of the day it was wrapped up in a magical atmosphere and silence.

The short version: we enjoyed our stay very much, and it's the view from the terrace that makes this villa so special. A longer version: While the property is comfortable and the owners very friendly and helpful, there are some details which could be improved. The bathrooms and plumbing are a bit old and tired, and the showers barely have any water pressure. One of the reasons we chose this property was that we wanted a bath for our baby daughter, but the bath was really just an odd deep spa bath sort of arrangement that didn't actually seem to work at all. The very narrow spiral staircase to the top floor was also a problem – not good for people with young children or accessibility issues. Overall, the furniture and decoration in the bedrooms was very old and tired and really could do with some updating. In fact, the place has such amazing potential – a refurbishment could turn it into five-star accommodation. Oh, and the parking area could be very difficult to use when there are other cars parked on the road – extremely difficult to find the space to manoeuvre in.
This home is clearly a family treasure. It has been well used and well loved and is exactly as advertised. If you are looking for the Hilton, do not stay here. It has more of a cottage feel with comfortable furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are spacious. The one on the main floor has double doors connecting it to the balcony which has an absolutely stunning view of the Meditteranean. The one on the upper floor is even larger, private and ,again, comfortable. After a day of exploring the area amid substantial crowds, this is a wonderful place to return to, get a glass of wine and move out onto the balcony to enjoy the view and reflect on the day. We must also say a word about the owners. What truly wonderful people! In addition to ensuring that we had the best stay possible, they allowed us to park our vehicle in the garage of their home just outside of Venice so that when we visited that city we could take the train and avoid the hefty parking fees we would otherwise have had to pay. Not only that but they took us to the train station, showed us how to purchase and validate tickets and picked us up on our return. And all this after insisting on giving us a tour of their beautiful city! We have used VRBO and Homeaway websites for a few years now and have met some great owners and managers, but these people were the best!
A couple of other points to note. This property comes with 2 parking spaces. If you are driving, this is important because parking in the area can be challenging. Also, because the village is perched on a steep incline high above the sea, there are lots of stairs to negotiate if you choose to walk to explore. If you have health issues that would make climbing them difficult , there are shuttles and taxis as an alternative.
Finally, while the owners live roughly 6 hours away from this home, there is a property manager in the village who was helpful, funny and prompt in responding to any questions or issues. We give this home and its owners our highest recommendation. Should you choose to stay here I say good on you! You are making an excellent choice
My best friend, my god son (4) and I had a very pleasant stay at the house. It resembled exactly the description, was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The best about the house is definetely the great view you have from every window and the balcony. The surroundings are very quiet and it is the perfect place to relax. The exchange with the owner was very uncomplicated and they gave us lots of tips for nice beaches, restaurants and what to do. I definetely can recommend this very nice place for a great holiday at Amalfi coast!
"We had a wonderful stay over the Easter holiday at this beautiful home on the Amalfi coast. The home is lovingly appointed, which makes you feel right at home. The owners were extremely helpful with all of our planning and arrangements. The VIEW was incredible from the balcony and all of the windows. We loved the small town of Conca dei Marini and felt very welcomed by the residents. We enjoyed walking down to the beautiful church for Easter mass and picking lemons with the neighbors. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental!"
"The first thing that struck me was that this property felt like a home, it felt intimate, inviting and warm. This Villa had every comfort and amenity needed for a comfortable relaxing holiday, wether you wanted to stay in and enjoy its beauty and ambience or venture out and explore. The views of the Mediterranean below and surrounding landscape were picture framed from every doorway and window and were nothing short of spectacular. It is positioned nicely between Amalfi and Positano. It was very private and quite and yet a comfortable walk to the local village and bus stop. It was well presented and very clean, with nothing left to do but stock the fridge with the amazingly fresh and delicious local produce and relax."
We are a danish/american family- with our 3 adult childern. We had a wonderful time in Amalfi and the home we stayed at was perfect. The view is fantastic, and the home is with everything well functioning.
We give our highest recommendation!
