The 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment was excellent for a family of four. Pasquale was incredibly helpful and the sea views were amazing! The unit is super clean and well taken care of. The kitchen was sufficient for daily breakfasts and the grocery store was close by. The beach was about 15 minutes away as well as restaurants. Just be prepared for 100's of steps which is a byproduct of the beautiful Amalfi Coast. The upside to all of the steps is this helps to burn the calories from all of the great food you will eat there.
Myself and my newly married wife visited the Amafi Coast and stayed at Casa San Tommaso over our honeymoon period. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment which was clean, spacious and well equipped. The view was to die for and we particularly enjoyed relaxing on the balcony every evening enjoying a cold glass of wine or beer after a day at the beach. Our hosts Giovanna and Pasquale were absolutely fabulous and made us feel so welcome. They were very helpful with local knowledge and recommendations for places to visit and where to dine. Nothing was a problem; they are a lovely couple. We would definitely visit again in the future.

We are writing this on our last day at casa san tommaso and we cannot recommend this place enough! From the moment we arrived we were greeted as if we were one of their own and even though we arrived at midnight were offered to be cooked a meal and made cups of tea by our fantastic hosts pasquale and giovanna! (Pasquale even insisted on carrying our suitcase down a flight of 60 stairs on his shoulder #legend) we were then invited to a village get-together at the local church square the next night as a fund raiser for the victims of the italian earthquake and again were made to feel like one of the family when meeting all of their beautiful family, giovanna is so warm and friendly and pasquale is always entertaining! From there on they were always on hand for a friendly chat or to give useful information about day trips to this amazing part of the world, but otherwise give you all the space you need to enjoy your holiday. Cannot praise them enough for this, the best hosts ever!
Praiano is a perfect location, right in the middle of the amalfi coast yet away from the hustle and bustle of the main towns. So authentic and romantic. Great restaurants nearby and retains the charm of this magical part of the world! If u want a holiday you wont forget stay with pasquale and giovanna at casa san tommaso!!!
Brilliant views glad I went but too many steps and town spread out.
Yes it was the quietest town on Amalfi Coast because of the fact it's the hardest to get around even for fit people. There is no port at Praiano so transfers to other locations are more expensive and time consuming.
The accommodation was lovely and clean, well catered but we shared with our friends who had the main bedroom and we used the second bedroom.
The second bedroom has a door and a little window which is high on the wall into the MAIN BEDROOM which
I did not like. There is no fresh air if you close the door. There is no privacy for 2 couples to share this accommodation. It is more suited to one couple and children.
The town is too difficult to get around and spread out over many levels with a totally time wasting bus service or very expensive
I would recommend to stay at Amalfi or Positano.
The main reason I would not recommend this accommodation is because once I paid in full in advance the owner sent me an email asking for 145 Euro extra for cleaning and electricity. I was very offended that this was not included in the initial quote inquiry, deposit or final payment. It is WRONG to be notified after booking and payment has occured.
Please be aware when booking on TripAdvisor of any additional hidden fees. I contacted TripAdvisor before leaving Australia who notified the owner that she cannot charge these fees, they should have been included in my 1st quote.
She wrote an email to me making some excuse which was not true.
Example: the extra charge is to pay the cleaners but I paid in full weeks in advance before leaving Australia she could have paid the cleaners weeks in advance.
The owners are NOT ALLOWED TO CHARGE MORE THAN THE QUOTE NO EXCUSES.
