Although we had a good idea of what to expect from reading numerous VRBO reviews, upon our arrival at "house Oliver" we were more than pleasantly surprised. Walking up the few steps to the house we were taken back by the sheer beauty of the views. Their were gorgeous views that stretched from Minori on the left to shimmering blue waters on the right. Breathtaking! Entering the house, we set eyes on a tastefully furnished apartment with three levels, all spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we shared a glass of Prosecca while Oliver shared his ideas for places to eat and things to do. It was a great first day.
Beautiful and quite functional, the home was tastefully furnished. The kitchen, modern and clean is actually co-located with the upstairs master suite. Don’t ask me how they pulled this off but it fits perfectly and works very well when transporting coffee from the kitchen to the porch for an early morning viewing of the sunrise.
One must keep in mind that Amalfi Drive is RIGHT beneath the gate to House Oliver. Each time you leave you must proceed with some caution. Walking along the Amalfi Drive can be daunting at first but after a few days you will likely find it fun, interesting and great exercise. We did.
The view! You must see it to believe it. Enough said.
Now for what makes the visit a truly pleasurable experience: Oliver and his wife Lele (sp). They sparkle with enthusiasm for their beautiful home. They are proud of their country and the wonderful area they call home and rightfully so. Gracious, friendly and helpful they were available when we needed them and went quietly about their business when we didn’t. Indeed, it was because of this exuberance that we took him up on his “Boat Ride”. An experience for the ages. Seeing the Amalfi Coastline from the water was worth every penny. Oliver showed us sights we would never have seen on our own then took a slow cruise to a restaurant where my wife and I shared “Jackie’s Favorite” pasta. We swam twice and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
During our stay we had but few moments to talk with Lele. We would have loved more time with her.
I give House Oliver every bit of five stars in my rating. They work hard to earn that rating and all their efforts translate into a vacation experience that you will never forget.
PS: If you need a driver, ask for Claudio. He is something special!
We thank you for appreciating our Home, it has been a great pleasure to have met you. We wait for you next time to share new experiences.
A big hug Oliver & Lella
Beautiful House and Centrally Located
Oliver and Lella are wonderful hosts and the house is even better than it appears in the photos. There are two separate bedrooms with a living room in between. All are decorated beautifully with everything you could think of needing in the house. There are three outdoor seating areas. The view to the coast is completely unobstructed. There was food an wine in the house when we arrived. For travelers who have not been to the Amalfi Coast, location and transportation are key. The house is centrally located to reach Positano, Ravello, Maiori. And from Amalfi we could reach Capri or any of the ports along the coast by ferry. I suggest taking the ferry or waking any time you can because traffic is a challenge along the coast. We hiked the Path of the Gods, visited Pompeii, had a day on the beach in Amalfi with cocktail service and also spent a day on Capri. We had dinner in all of the major towns along the coast and Oliver helped us with recommendations.
This property is absolutely gorgeous.
The property was even more beautiful than the pictures. The owners, Oliver and Lella were delightful people who were there to help us when we needed it but left us to ourselves to enjoy our time on the Amalfi coast. From the arrival when Oliver and Lella met us and showed us the villa which included a kitchen stocked with food, to our departure, when they came down and we all had a good bye espresso you could not ask for better owners. If you rent from them you should also take the mini cruise with Oliver on his boat. The coast was beautiful and Oliver made a delicious lunch and served us right on the boat. I cannot say enough about this villa or Oliver and Lella. If I could I would give our entire experience ten stars. My wife and I would love to visit again.
As noted in previous reviews, the property is simply outstanding. Yes, there’s those pesky steps. But; you get used to them fairly quickly. From the moment you arrive until you depart, Oliver and Lella are excellent host. Zippy, the cat, often joins you on the patio. The night views are simply gorgeous. Walking the Amalfi road is adventurous. But, worth it. The views are outstanding. From the time Oliver’s driver Claudio, picked us up in Rome until he dropped us at the Rome airport, he was readily available to transport us to our daily destination. The restaurants Oliver recommended were superb. The food was delicious and the pricing was reasonable. Our time at the villa was very relaxing. Well worth the expense.
what a great privilege to share our home with special people like you. Seeing your joy in appreciating every corner of our home has made us happy. We are waiting for you next time for more time. Goodbye
House Oliver is a fantastic place to stay. Oliver and Lella are very gracious hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The house is updated and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and Ferraras supply some dry goods and several refrigerated foods for your use. They even have wines available for purchase! The bathrooms have very modern fixtures including rain showers and are well stocked with soaps, conditioners, etc. The view from the terrace is incredible!! We enjoyed relaxing on the patio in the morning with coffee watching the sunrise and with wine in the evenings for the sunsets. We wish we could have stayed longer. You cannot go wrong with this rental!!!!
Thank you for sharing your opinion of Oliver's house.
We agree that you had to stay more so we wait for you next time.
A big hug Oliver & Lella
Breathtaking is an understatement
This property and more importantly the owner are wonderful. We stayed 4 nights and upon arrival Olivier meets you and shares a bottle of wine as he gets you settled in. He has some food in the refrigerator and some snacks already supplied when you arrive. He is very pleasant and the property is magnificent. It has lots of character and charm with a view that is awesome. He also offers a private boat ride which we highly suggest. On the cruise he supplies food and drinks with a guided tour up and down the coast. He also allows time to just sit and enjoy or swim too.
The best part about the experience besides the view is Olivier himself, he makes the whole experience wonderful and we feel we have a friend in Amalfi forever.
Thank you for your wonderful words. We love our land and our home and try to make our guests live the best part of it.
We look forward to welcome you next time
