“Spacious apartment with amazing view”

We had a lovely stay. The apartment is spacious, clean and nicely furnished. The highlight is the amazingly large terrace with several seating areas and the magnificent views of the rooftops of Sorrento, the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Giuliana, Irene and Antonella were all very helpful and responsive - especially when I made a foolish mistake and thought I had locked myself out on Sunday morning, when they were very gracious and forgiving!
The kitchen is a little basic, and the necessary downside of the lovely view is being on the fifth floor - there is a small elevator, but probably not recommended to anyone who wouldn't be able to manage the stairs if they needed to. The location is great, just 5 minutes walk from Piazza Tasso. We would definitely stay again.

“Great location, great terrace, terrible bed”

This apartment is in a great location, and has a fabulous terrace with spectacular views over Sorrento. The check-in and check-out arrangements went very smoothly, and Christina went out of her way to give us an early check-in time. The apartment comes with all the toiletries, washing equipment etc, which makes it much easier for guests staying in the apartment.

Unfortunately the bed in the main bedroom (which has great furniture and an excellent ensuite bathroom), is an old metal framed bed, with sagging squeaking springs and a poor mattress. We had to sleep in the second bedroom, which was an inferior room, without an ensuite. The bed needs to be replaced so that it is up to the standard expected of an apartment (we have travelled for almost 6 months in the last two years in Europe, staying mainly in apartments, and have not had such a poor bed before).

“A LARGE, attractive, comfortable apartment with a fantastic terrace.”

This location is advertised & photographed accurately but we were still surprised by how big & bright it was.
We enjoyed staying at Apartment Sun so much we ate dinner almost every night on the wrap-around terrace with the bay of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius & the Sorrento hills as our view.
Floor to ceiling glass doors in each room lead to the large terrace.
Even the kitchen & 2nd bathroom have a small shared balcony.
The management thoughtfully supplies the basics; toilet paper,paper towels, soap, laundry detergent, towels, table cloth, tea towels, oil, balsamic, salt, pepper, sugar - we were even greeted with a bottle of good red wine - nice touch ladies!
The lift is right outside the apt. door with 2 full service markets 3 minutes stroll away.
Friendly & charming Christina was a patient & professional introduction to Apartment Sun.
She waited with us at the train station for our travelling companions, took us to the apt.,explained how everything worked, showed us the supplied maps & timetables
for the area.Thanks Christina! At the end of the week we didn't want to leave.
A small tip for my fellow travelers - take ear plugs (we always do) there are a couple of dogs
protecting their homes nearby and the barking can echo through the Sorrento hills.
This is not under management control and it's not a big deal - just a friendly "heads up".

“Lovely spot for a family”

We rented Apartment Sun for 4 nights. It worked out perfectly for our family. One bedroom with a double bed for the parents plus another bedroom with single beds for the kiddos. Plenty of room to stretch out (a nice contrast to being rather cramped in our Rome accommodations just days beforehand), and a beautiful view of Mt. Vesuvius and the surrounding coast. With a few grocery shops just down the street, it made for an easy way to find breakfast and snacks. The kitchen had everything we needed to make homemade lemonade from the lemons we found in town.

The management were very helpful and provided all the information we needed about the local area, including providing maps and making restaurant recommendations.

Our only pet peeves were that the mattress on the double bed could have been more comfortable and the shower in the master bath drained rather slowly. Neither was so bad so as to really affect our stay.

Excellent self catering apartment in the heart of sorrento with stunning 360 degree views of the coast and mount Vesuvius ! Many a night sat watching the sun set with friends drinking some limonchello !

Spacious apartment staff very helpful on arrival and departure;)

Supermarket a very short walk away catering for all you would want they were really friendly too felt very welcome .

Short walk into the bustle of sorrento lots to do if you want to escape for a walk to a local fishing village and stopping at the boardwalk bar or take a Trip to Pompeii !

Take a train to Pompeii and Herculaneum !

Take a boat to amalfi get the hop on hop off bus to the villages and then bus back to sorrento stunning and a bit hair raising!

Also take the hop on hop off bus in sorrento and that will take you out to the countryside

Great holiday ;)
