“Gorgeous Views in a Serene Setting”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in Sapphirus for a week in September 2015. When we arrived at the rental property, Benedetta, daughter of the property owner, met us. She is a very friendly lady who made us feel at home immediately, showing us each of the very clean and bright rooms of the rental property. This house has been completely renovated, as described in the advertisement, with bright colors of blue and white throughout each room. There is a clothes washing machine in the home which is very much appreciated. There is an additional bedroom with twin beds that we didn't use, as well as a second bathroom also with shower. The views from two different balconies facing the Mediterranean Sea are breath-taking. There are bi-fold doors which open to these views from the master bedroom and the kitchen/living room, giving one fresh breezes and views which are just unforgettable. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one would need to cook. Two grocery stores are within 5 minutes of the home with fresh Italian bread, cold cuts, produce, and local fruits, as well as other groceries. The bus stop is 100 feet from your doorstep. Praiano is close to all the other Amalfi Coast towns, but it is quiet without all of the tourist hustle and bustle of Amalfi, Positano, and Sorrento. Benedetta surprised us with a homemade chocolate chip pound cake and a bottle of her family's homemade limoncello. We've rented villas on the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany in 2012, but this rental property is the best that we've occupied. We highly recommend it.

“The apartment was clean and modern with a beautiful view from the balcony”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment was in a good location with the bus stops and grocery stores literally round the corner.
It was easy to get to the marina but remember there is a lot of walking up and down the stairs but there is a local bus that does go round Praiano and is very cheap
The boat tour is a must and the best way to see the amalfi coast
Praiano is one of the quietest towns around the amalfi coast but it was easy to get round to other towns
The only down side was the WiFi connection was poor and when you have teenage kids it was a bit of a let down
Other than that, I would recommend it

“Beautiful views and very clean”

Wow! What a place! My new wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon for one week. Everything was top-notch. We met with Benedetta the first night to get the keys, and there was a pleasant surprise waiting for us in the kitchen (I will let you experience this surprise after you book this place). Benedetta and Mario (her husband) were so kind and accommodating. Even Benedetta's brother helped us find the place the first night.
Everything in the apartment was clean and easy to use. It really is a short walk to get groceries or local bus tickets (to Positano). I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Praiano. The value is incredible.

“Perfect apartment...amazing view”

This apartment has almost everything you need for a perfect stay...Everything in it is new and in perfect working order and it is immaculately clean. The owner was there to meet us and took us through everything and had welcome Lemoncello and Easter Cake and biscuits for us...such a lovely touch. Parking is included which is a bonus and is a short walk away. The local bus stop is right outside and the grocery store is 2 mins away. The main bus stop is only 5 mins walk down the hill. I loved this apartment and it was an ideal base for exploring the Almafi Coast. The view was amazing...and even better in real life than the pictures! We would definitely stay here again
