“Things to consider before you book.”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

There are advantages and disadvantages to Casa Vacanza Gabriella that you should consider prior to booking. First the location is near to Sorrento but not in Sorrento and off of a loud street in Sant'Angnello. We thought we would skip staying in Sorrento for a quieter stay in a small nearby town however, the road next to Casa Vacanza was only quiet during the Italian Eurocup games and early in the morning; which considering you have to have the windows open to get any air circulation in the house (no AC), it can be hard to get a good night's rest. The walk to Sorrento is 20 minutes BUT it is on a very narrow street with a small (1 meter or less across) walkway next to a very busy road of tour buses, motorcycles and cars. This was a smelly and an unnerving walk with children. We ended up taking the bus to get into town which takes longer than the walk itself. If you want to visit Sorrento, I suggest staying in Sorrento.

Casa Vacanza Gabriella is a large and spacious apartment. The deck view is beautiful. The deck is great for hanging laundry during the day when it is too bright to sit out and gorgeous to have dinner out on it and watch the sun set. In the front bedroom bathroom, we had a problem with a sewage smell for three of the four days we stayed. It was awful and the manager hadn't any suggestions about what to do. We kept the bathroom door closed and dealt with it.

The beds are older and we had to request for extra linens to utilize the pillows in storage since the one pillow/person was bumpy and thin. I guess the manager hasn't had anyone comment on the added cleaning (50E) and linen cost (50 E), but I didn't see this on the regular TripAdvisor description and was surprised. No other Italian rental included these charges. Fortunately, some of these costs were waived which was appreciated.

This property would be nice for a larger group of people in Spring, Fall or Winter when it is not too hot outside and you have sound sleepers. The manager was very responsive as well as dismissive at times. It was our least favorite apartment on our three week trip to Europe.

“Good location, great place and excellent host”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were 6 adults and one child and we fit super comfortably in this house. It is very spacious, the bathroom is super big and has a smaller en-suite as well. Well equipped for our short stay. We loved staying here. We really appreciated being close to the train, 15 mins walk to the centre of Sorrento, the washing machine, the free wi-fi and having Fabrizio as a host. He is super helpful, flexible and very attentive. He recommended two places for us to eat that were really good. We had a big van so we could not get into the house parking and Fabrizio had daily parking tickets ready for us. Only drawback are the two flights of stairs to climb to get into the apartment and that towels, cleaning, linen and tax are not included in the booking quote, but all was still very reasonably priced. Totally recommend this place, we loved it!

Fabrizio made booking and communication before and during stay easy. We had 7 in party so we were please the apartment had a roof terrace out from the lounge which we ate on and relaxed there. Small but adequate kitchen and may need a few more pans and utensils if you plan to cook a lot as we did but no problems for us. Location just outside Sorrento ( 15 min walk to center of Sorrento) was perfect and San't Agnello has great little bars and restaurants without having to go into Sorrento. Would stay again and if travelling from Naples Airport the transfer Fabrizio offers is worth it. Train in town great to visit Pompeii but a bus from airport to station and steps down to platform and a long train journey with 33 stops. Not good with cases so take up transfer offer unless your travelling light. Great place and WiFi a bonus.

“Amazing Apartment in Sorrento”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

On the first day that we arrived to Sorrento from USA, our car broke down in front of the apartment. Fabrizio spent three hours with us trying to help us with the rental car company as we are not fluent in Italian and did not know the area well. Once we figured that out, he helped book is a driver for a day tour of the Amalfi Coast and a driver to take us to Rome. The apartment came with everything we needed. This apartment is perfect for a two day stay, a three month stay, and everything in between. If I ever return to Sorrento, this is where I will be staying. Not only was the apartment great, but the hosts were even better. Thank you Fabrizio!
