Casa Maria is an older villa in Positano that has amazing views of both the town and sea. The upper terrace is fairly large and open while the lower is more covered and secluded; best of both worlds. Bedrooms and bathrooms are both fairly large with nice furnishings fixtures. Big dining room table is perfect for eating in and there are smaller tables on both terraces. Location is great in terms of views and noise level from town.
The entrance level has 2 bedrooms (one has an en suite bathroom while the other bathroom is down a short flight of stairs to the lower lever), plus combined living room and dining room with large double doors opening on to the upper terrace. Lower floor has the bathroom I mentioned above, a small kitchen, large bedroom with en suite bathroom and another area between the two that has 2 single sofa/beds that could be used for children, but it is kind of an odd, useless room if you are 3 couples. There is also a second kitchen outside that opens on to the lower balcony.
The only drawback to this property is the TINY kitchen. You really can't have more than 2 people in it at a time. And being so tiny means that there is not much cabinet space so therefore a little limited in cookware. There is a lot of silverware, plates, dinnerware etc. But no, and I'm not exaggerating, drinking glasses! Not one except for the tiny wine glasses and some plastic cups I found in the odd room with the single sofa beds. None in the other kitchen either. Dishwasher, oven and stove worked well in both. But if you are someone who likes to cook, you'll be frustrated with small kitchens.
The steps -yes there are many but you are in Positano and that is expected. This property, or Positano in general, is not for people who have problems getting around for any reason, health, age, disability, etc. It can be very challenging even for the healthiest of us! This villa is located at a nice level - a bit above the crowd but below the main road going in to town.
All in all a nice space with a gorgeous view and yes I would rent again as long as I can have some glassware :)
