I traveled with my family, a total of 5 people, and the apartment comfortably fitted us (two bedrooms with queen beds and living room with single bed).
The location is perfect to get to know all the towns on the Amalfi coast. Keep in mind that the whole area is in the mountains, with crazy winding and narrow roads, so if you rent a car, you are going to have a lot of fun. It is at a decent distance from Amalfi, and not far from Positano. We personally rented a car, and moved around. We also did use the ferry to go from Positano to Amalfi and back. Probably faster than doing it by car.
Assunta and her husband were very attentive. We needed a bigger coffee maker for the 5 of us, and they provided a new and bigger coffee maker the same day. Great recommendations as well for restaurants close by.
I would definitely recommend this area of Italy, and I would definitely recommend the Bellavista as your headquarters to discover the Amalfi Coast.
We spent 4 nights at the La Bellavista on our summer vacation in Italy. Our flight was delayed and car rental took ages so we arrived to Conca dei Marini later than expected. Assunta and her husband were extremely flexible about our late check in and gave us a warm welcome.
The flat is spacious and the views are just breathtaking. Kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are big. The only inconvenience was with the toilet&bathroom. The bigger bathroom itself is quite spacious but had a small invasion of ants (which is quite normal in Southern Europe) so we couldn't leave anything on the counters. The shower stall in the smaller bathroom was very small, but for us it worked out okay.
Conca dei Marini is beautiful and very quiet compared to the more famous and touristic Amalfi coast towns like Positano or Sorrento. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Thank you for a lovely time!

The apartment is great. Clean, spacious and has specular views of Capri, priano and Amalfi.
Being between amalfi and priano it is a quiet and a little off the beaten path. Nothing can happen without a vehicle. The location is well served by bus service which we used regularly.
Distances here are figurative where a 7 km car ride taking almost 30 minutes. But that is what it means to be on amalfi. the coast is not the place to make a home based for exploring Campania region.
Besides that,the owner Assunta was very helpful
and provided us with all that we needed to have a successful stay here. The apartment has 2 bedrooms and a large parlor. The kitchen is quite large and well equipped. The air conditioning worked great and the views are better than the pictures.
Well worth the price and no worries about parking.
I would definitely consider this apartment again.
Beautiful place, lots of space, clean, amazing views - balconies in every room. Flowers everywhere on the property, friendly family. If driving, park near the house - safe. About 15-20 min to Amalfi by car - drive safe. Bus is also close by, but we drove. Parking in Amalfi can be pricey. We will definitely rent this property again. Vitaly, Elena
One of the most picturesque places I have ever visited. The roads are built mostly for a couple of Smart cars, so it can get a little hairy when the coach buses pass by.
If you decide to drive, be sure you get the super car insurance just to be safe and be prepared to keep pulling your side view mirrors in when you get to the tight spots.
Also, if you get car sick be sure you are sitting in the front seat as most of the roads twist and turn around the coast. Our kids were getting quite car sick toward the end of our short two day stay.
