Very well furnished small apartment with terrace. Located in a very lively area but the double glazing is great and we slept very well. A few meters from the Via Nocera station, very convenient for visiting the surroundings between Naples and Sorrento. Licia is very kind.



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!


Gaetano welcomed us into his "house in Stabia". The apartment is like the photos: nice, clean and well furnished. The apartment is located in a lively square with shops and traffic. The windows are very well insulated so you can't hear sounds from outside. It is very close to two railway stations and one of them is the circumvesuviana, with this train you can easily go to юi and Vesuvius. The city of Castellamare Stabia is a relaxed place. The swimming beach is about 20 minutes away on foot. Don't miss the evening promenade and the beautiful sunset.


The check-in experience was great. Gaetano was very helpful and suggested places for every occasion. The place was perfect and equipped with everything you need. The location was amazing, as well as close to pizzerias, supermarkets, and everything you could want. Overall the ideal stay for a trip to Sorrento or Pompeii.


Gaetano, the host, was very welcoming and friendly. He clarified that we could contact him for assistance during our stay The apartment is in a very central urban location in the city with the coast and sea view restaurants a 10 minute walk away and the nearest train station Via Nocera just 1 minute away. We were therefore easily able to visit via train - Pompeii, Vesuvious, Sorrento and other destinations along the coast. Access was also easy to visit the Amalfi Coast and Capri.


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 welcome from Lidia and Gaetano was truly unique: an Easter surprise for our little girl and a thought for us adults too. The apartment is equipped with every comfort and cleanliness is impeccable. It is also centrally located and very convenient: nearby there are numerous shops and a few minutes' walk will take you to the Circumvesuviana station which allows you to easily visit Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum. Fantastic terrace! Very fast and effective communication. Highly recommended !!!


Perfect holiday home, clean, comfortable and with a terrace. We had a great time visiting Capri, Amalfi, Sorrento. Both the port and the train station are close to the house, Gaetano was very kind. We will be back!
