Our stay at Le Sirene Loft was exceptional. When we arrived in Positano by ferry porters were right there to take our luggage up to the villa. We were instructed where to go to meet Chiara and Giuseppe in town. Positano was busy with locals and tourists (it was a holiday weekend) and we had no idea if we were going in the right direction. When we came upon Chiara and her husband we were greeted with hugs and so began our trek up to the villa. (there is only one small road through Positano and thankfully it was a one way). We reached our stair way to the villa and then descended 70 steps (yes I counted them) to the gated entry. The villa was beyond our expectation! Beautiful! The view, furnishings, washroom, stairway to the loft and balcony, cleanliness .... was exceptional! The owners greeted us with a bottle of wine, bowl of lovely fresh fruit and told us to use their garden for fresh vegetables and of course lemons! A small local grocery store was extremely convenient and only two minutes away. There is a stairway that goes down to the town - 263 of them (yes I did count those also)! Needless to say our legs got a great workout and we enjoyed every minute of it. Chiara and Guiseppe thank you for a great week!
My wife and I traveled to Positano in March and stayed at "Le Sirene."
This villa (or condo) is an excellent place to stay. The owners, Joseph and Chiara, are extremely helpful and friendly. They truly care about making your stay enjoyable.
The villa is every bit as nice as the pictures indicate. The view from the kitchen and living room is spectacular. The furnishings are nice and comfortable. Plus the unit has pretty much all the amenities one could ask for (cable TV, wifi, air conditioning / heating, full kitchen, etc).
The villa is centrally located in Positano about 50m above beach level and a short 4-5 minute walk to the "Centro." There are also some excellent restaurants close by, and a nice grocery / coffee shop just above the unit (called Latteri).
There are stairs to access the apartment (downwards from street level - but it's Positano, stairs are a part of life here). A porter can be arranged for luggage.
The only minor criticism is that the hot water heater is a bit small - but it's Europe, so you can't ask for much more.
All in all, this is an EXCELLENT place to stay and you will certainly enjoy your vacation!
