We stayed at Stabia Holiday House for 2 weeks. Our overall rating is easily a 5 starts. The communication with Gaetano was very smooth and easy since the beginning. Although our flight and arrival was quite late it was no problem for gaetano, he greeted us at the place late in the evening. The home itself was very clean and well maintained. The gas stove was very useful to make our morning coffee and cook a couple of meals. The air conditioning sure helped us cope with the warm weather. The location is amazing, 25m from a 24 hour coffee and bakery cafe, 50m from a super market and around 100m from the train stop. Everything was so close and even though it was central the sound isolating is top-notch so no worries with the traffic sound. I also felt safe in the surroundings, even coming home late at night. The place also has a roof terrace that has a beautiful view of mount faito, we had lovely breakfasts there and you also had facilities to sun bathe. Gaetano was extremely helpful. He replied swiftly to all our questions on where to eat, good places and where to go for certain things. He also made sure that we had what we needed and would suggest us if anything we needed was missing. All in all, Gaetano and his wife were very helpful and welcoming during our stay.


The structure is a wedding favor located in a central area and complete with services. Inside it there was anything that could serve to satisfy our needs. Clean and welcoming. What makes it even more special is the huge and functional terrace. The owner was very nice and helpful. I highly recommend it!


We were very well received by Gaetano and his wife. The apartment is clean, pleasant and meets all the criteria of the advertisement. The terrace overlooks the city, what a pleasure! thanks a lot


Very helpful and friendly hosts. The apartment is in excellent condition, clean, well furnished and central: attached to the Circumvesuviana station, close to supermarkets, but also well connected to visit the most touristic places. The best thing is the terrace located on the upper floor, with umbrella, deck chairs .. really well done, useful for relaxing or enjoying a nice lunch / dinner in peace and in the open air. Definitely we will be back.. I highly recommend this place!


Central and very clean and well-kept house. Large magnificent terrace. We easily reached Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano and Pompeii. We enjoyed visiting a destination every day. Very beautiful landscapes, beaches and sea. Very nice owners, I recommend this vacation rental. I also recommend the cable car that takes you to Mount Faito in 8 minutes: spectacular!


Super friendly and helpful hosts. They had arranged fresh fruits and water/juice for our arrival. Lovely big roof terrace. Comfortable beds and nice bathroom. Close to shops and good grocery stores nearby.


Beautiful house with terrace. We reached Sorrento and Amalfi easily. The house is central, clean and well organized. The terrace allowed us to enjoy magnificent moments. The owners are very nice and nice. I advise.


Beautiful holiday in Castellammare di Stabia in this brand new and spotless holiday home, with everything you need. Excellent location, shops, pizzerias all under the house (circumvesuviana train 100 meters). The super nice owner Gaetano advised us for the best. Do not miss the Stabiae ruins a few steps from the house. 10+

The apartment is ideally located for visiting the Naples area. The apartment is clean and a train station for Naples and Sorrento is right next door. Shop at the foot of the apartment. Gaetano is very nice.


Great accommodation. The owners are very nice and offer you help if you need it. They also respond very quickly via airbnb.The house is fully equipped, good bed, excellent kitchen and good bathroom. Especially the roof terrace is really great, a huge terrace with sun beds, a large dining table, a parasol and an outside shower. In addition, the house was also completely clean. The beach is about a 5/10 minute walk. It is recommended to rent a car and visit places such as Vesuvius, Pompeii, Positano (Amalfi Coast), Naples and Sorrento....


Accommodation in excellent condition, clean and well furnished with everything you need. Excellent location (attached to the circumvesuviana station) in a quiet neighborhood. Gaetano kind and helpful. Close to supermarkets and well connected to visit the most touristic places in the area. Do not miss the excavations of Stabia a few steps from there.
