Where do I start... To have the privilege to stay at Emilio's beautiful home is such a gift. My husband and I were in Italy for two weeks and stayed in Airbnb's in every city we stayed in. The experience of staying at Casa Baker is beyond first class. The home: This home is perfect in every way. The kitchen is beautifully designed and has every amenity you need plus more... for example: filtered water/sparkling water right from the kitchen sink! Nespresso machine with coffee for your use. Off of the kitchen is the most beautiful outdoor balcony with breathtaking views of Positano. Perfect place for morning coffee, glass of wine in the evening before heading out to dinner, or stay in and have a wonderful meal on your own private balcony... The living room is beautiful and spacious and well equipped, the bedroom and master bathroom is perfectly appointed - extra pillows if you want - the most comfortable bed we slept in on our whole trip and the master bath is wonderful! Washing machine if you need it. The location: Casa Baker is located central to everything you want to experience in Positano... Short walk to the beach, local restaurants, shopping, local bus and grocery store. The host: Verena is your welcoming host and she is beyond fantastic!!! She met us at the bottom of the stairs where our driver brought us. She greeted us with a huge smile and hug and helped us up the stairs with our luggage. Once inside Casa Baker, Verena explained every detail of this magnificent home and all of the great details of how Emilio renovated this beautiful location (he didn't miss a detail in his renovation, it is beyond thoughtful and perfect in every way). Verena spent all of the time we needed answering our questions and making great suggestions on what to do, where to eat, how to get around the area, local grocery stores, etc. She has put together the most complete binder that explains how everything works within the house as well as best places to eat and how to get around... Honestly - she is beyond amazing and is available to help or answer any questions you have at anytime during your stay! If this place is available for you during your stay in Positano - do not hesitate - book it because you will not be disappointed... LOVE Casa Baker !!!
If you see Casa Baker available for your dates, BOOK IT IMMEDIATELY. We had the great fortune of staying at Casa Baker for 3 nights and 4 days during the busiest time of year. We were told it was busy season but we didn't experience that because of the amazing location. It is not in the main area where all the hotels are so it gave us a more authentic and private experience. For us fast walkers, it was a 10 minute walk to the main beach and a s sandwich shop Giuliano the mortadella and pistachio pesto panino is to die for!
Casa Baker Positano Italy is the must stay of the Amalfi Coast. The Apartment is immaculately clean and has everything you could ask for to make your stay perfect. The beds are scrumptious and the location and views to due for. Verena took very good care of us and nothing was too much trouble. About 10-15 minutes walk from the beach and shops and restaurants along the way all the way to the beach. Sergio (recommended by Casa Baker) picked us up in Naples in his private vehicle/van and drove us to Positano and back after our fantastic stay of 5 nights in Casa Baker. Sergio was fantastic and you couldn't ask for a nicer more helpful driver. You have to be reasonably fit as there are dozens and dozens of stairs and steep inclines in Positano and in August it was very hot 27-35 degrees. We took a day trip to Corfu Island and it was fantastic seeing the blue waters, eating beautiful food and swimming in the Med Sea. We had a blast and would go back tomorrow.

the apartment was centrally located in positano and was newly renovated. our house manager Verena was lovely and gave us some great recommendations for dinner and helped us to organise a taxi. would definitely stay again.
We couldn't have been happier with this home. It was beautiful, clean, well equipped, excellent views, nice location, great manager. There are shops and restaurants a short walk away, the local bus delivers you to the steps below the home so situation is great. It is a long walk into town or the beach, but you can use the bus if desired. My daughters used the murphy bed in the living room and they were messy, so a closed room for the second bed would have been good for our family but may not be needed for other guests. The manager Verena was excellent, responsive and helpful. Loved our stay here!
Casa Baker will be an apartment we will remember for all time. The experience was exceptional in terms of location, comfort, cleanliness, communication and overall, everything you could want in a trip to Positano. The most important aspect is that it is located with a max of about three staircases( about 50 steps) above the road which is extremely minimal as it pertains to apartments in Positano, Emilio has done an exceptional job in the decor, eco-friendly elements, design, comfort and service. The balcony was wonderful, the views perfect, comfortable beds, water pressure, all amenities, safe door lock and air-conditioning in every room which was essential in the hot summer days. We cannot wait to return to Casa Baker. We loved every minute of our stay.
Casa Baker is the perfect place to stay if you are going to Positano! The house is absolutely beautiful and has amazing views from the terrace. Emilio is a great host, he has literally thought of everything you could possibly need in a vacation rental, and getting in touch with him is never a problem. The house is super clean, the beds are comfortable, there's access to Netflix on each TV, and a Nespresso machine in the kitchen along with everything you'd need to cook. Just a disclaimer- since Positano is built on a hill, there are about 3 1/2 flights of steps to climb from the main road in order to reach the house so pack lightly! My parents are 63 and handled the steps with no problem. The house is right above one of the bus stops to get around Positano and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The location is great because it is above the super crowded touristy areas but only about a 15 minute walk to to beach/city center and you can reach everything from the main road without having to take additional stairs. I had a great stay at Casa Baker and was so sad to leave! Will definitely stay there again when I come back to Positano :)
