Charming house, great view
We (family of five) enjoyed our stay at the house; it was close to things we wanted to visit and do. It is not a detached house as one might surmise from the description, however, the outside area is still spacious and kempt. The dampness mentioned in previous reviews was noticeable (in terms of smell) and visible in some rooms, but it didn’t really bother us. Maybe the damp issues arise because there are no windows in the upstairs bathrooms. Perhaps a cavity wall insulation is needed. Whatever the cause or solution, it is not much of a problem if windows and doors are kept open. The house is fine and the view from the veranda is fantastic. We had a straight view onto Vesuvio and the Gulf of Naples. The wifi worked fine, to the relief of our three children. They also enjoyed the pool. However, given that it is advertised as quality property, the house could have been better equipped and maintained. The cattle was not working and there was no functioning corkscrew, which we brought to the attention of the owner on the day of arrival (the cattle was replaced). A few additional items in the kitchen would not go amiss either, including wine glasses (which we bought), a toaster, a good/sharp chopping knife, and perhaps under cabinet lights as most of the cooking is done in the evening when it’s getting dark outside. Torn shower curtains, unhinged toilet seats, and loose fittings (e.g., in shower) slightly spoil the otherwise good impression the house makes.
Nearby Vico Equense is lovely. This is where we took the children for ice cream, did most of our grocery shopping, and where we went for great pizza (try Da Cardone!). There is a big Auchan store in Pompei (approx. 15 minutes by car) where parking is less of a hassle than in Vico Equense. The nearest beach (Bikini beach) is less than a 10 minute walk away, however, you have to pay to use the beach (more than €50 per day for a family of five). There are two free beaches (spiaggia libera; e.g., Pozzano beach) only a few minutes away (drive towards Castellammare di stabia) and one in Meta. The latter is not great though, and a little awkward to get to. The drive to Sorrento can easily take up to an hour in the evening. We had a great meal on the harbour at Ristorante O’Puledrone (Via Marina Grande 150) where they serve great seafood at affordable prices. Ercolano (approx. 30 minutes by car) and the old town of Naples are well worth a visit, too. The deposit (€1,000) was returned in less than a week.
thank you very much. Sorry for cattle and wine glass...you understand i cannot have all guest want because everyone is different...
The house is comletly indipendant, be carefull when you say the things because it can be a problem after for me.
see you next time
When booking this family holiday we only looked for properties which had 4 bedrooms. When we arrived at the property there were only three bedrooms available. The fourth was not usable because of the severe damp. It was clear that this room had a damp problem for some time as there were several items which suggested this room had been used for storage for some period and in fact the black walls also suggested that there had been a damp problem for some time. We slept in the room above and the bed in this room was uncomfortably damp.
We understand that these problems arise but we would have expected to have been told that this problem existed at least a month before our departure as it would have been clear to the owners well in advance of our arrival that this room was uninhabitable. If we had been told this we would have cancelled and stayed elsewhere.
This was our family holiday and because it is very rare that we can all get together at the same time (one of our daughters lives in Los Angeles) we all hid our disappointment and made the best of our holiday because of course by that time the house was paid for and there was nothing else we could do. The damp was of course the worst problem, but there were others. Our son in law follows sport keenly and was disappointed to find there was no TV as was indicated in the house details. It was very cramped and we all agreed that this was in reality a 2 bedroom house, 3 bedroom if the damp room had been available. In addition the outside area was more restricted than appears in the photographs.
We made no complaint at the time of leaving because this was mid-way through our holiday and we were keen for the return of the very large deposit on our return. The deposit was excessive for the quality of the house.
The star is for the magnificent view.
Dear Maria i have read now your complaint and I am very sad about it.we have just before you came spend one week in the house to clean it from top to down. I have personally wash all the beds the windows tissu and all the cover. I worked one week hard to leave you a house very clean.
About the bedroom less I do that because you asked me only for 3 rooms and I prefer ed changed the little room because it was a good think . I do it because you told me before you needed only 3 rooms.
About television we have remove it to clean but it was in the little room you should have take it and just put on electricity. And if you didn't want to do it by yourself you should have told me and I was be able to come or asked to a friend. The television is OK it was just in the other room . Why did you not tell me? And there is Internet free in all the house!!!!!! To see television !!!! With Vesuvio and Golf of Naples just in front ....
I see you have wait to have deposit to tell me the things....do you think too that i am not a honest person? It is not a large deposit all the things in the house costs a lot.
This year someone has broken the sun umbrella outside and when I saw it it was too late..but I have gave back the money to everyone.
And after you the kitchen table near the gas where damage but I give you the money the same.
You are free to write what you want.i don't understand why you didn't write to me when you were there or why you didn't tell me nothing when we saw the day you leave.
This days I am not very well by health and now with all succeed in France I have forgetten to write to you before, so I regret you were not well in our house .but it would have been more honest to yell me when we met.
Have a good day
Un petit coin de paradis
Avec une vue magnifique sur le vesuve et la baie de Naples, la maison est très agréable !
La piscine est bien entretenue et le secteur est très calme.
Ce qui est appréciable au vue de la vie trépidante de la région.
Le village de vico equense est vraiment sympathique.
Nous recommandons cette location.

au plaisir de vous revoir
Superbe vue et emplacement
Nous avons passé un beau séjour , maison agréable avec vue superbe sur la baie de Naples , calme . Le logement est très agréable , propre avec de beaux volumes . Idéal pour allier visites culturelles et bord de mer .
Nous avons passé une semaine cet été dans cette belle maison à Vico qui a une vue admirable sur le Golfe de Naples. La maison est agréable et très lumineuse, les chambres sont spatieuses et la position très pratique pour tout visiter sur la péninsule. Les glaces à Vico sont très bonnes! Nous avons profiter de la piscine qui est de bonnes dimensions pour les enfants mais aussi pour les adultes.
Sehr schönes Ferienhaus mit tollem Meerblick
Wir haben hier 4 Nächte verbracht. Das Haus über 2 Etagen ist sehr schön eingerichtet und hat eine traumhafte Terrasse mit herrlichem Blick auf den Vesuv und den Golf von Neapel.
Es war uns eine Freude hier wohnen zu können.
Der Kontakt war sehr freundlich. Vielen lieben Dank dafür.
Thank you so much Andreas happy you have been well in our house.
hope.to meet you again
Take motorway A1 until Naples and follow Costiera Sorrentina, take Castellamare di Stabia exit after Pompei. Take the 2 tunnels and on the small road along the sea before arriving in Vico Equense, go on the parking of Oasis Restaurant on the left. You are arrived. Pizza al metro in Vico Equense is a cheap and very good restaurant where you can eat typical Neapolitan pizza but also very good pastas and other meals.
