Overall this was a lovely spacious 1 bedroom apartment; I would stay again and recommend it to friends.
We stayed 2 weeks and were initially a little disappointed with Mairoi - it is not too picturesque. But over time it grew on us and we loved the fact that is is less touristy than Amalfi and other places along the coast. Maiori is more like an Italian small town. We travelled by boat along the coast and enjoyed visiting the many lovely places along the shoreline. We appreciated returning to much quieter Maiori. The beach is very long and there are plenty of places to get refreshments.
The bedroom was big and the huge bed very comfortable.
The living room was large, and would be big enough for an additional comfy chair so I could sit looking at my beautiful wife rather than always sitting next to her. (Owners please add one).
Communication up to the time we arrived was very good and airport collection was excellent. We were taken straight to the apartment by the driver who carried 1 case up the 80 steps.
What needs improving?
At the time we arrived we felt that the pictures were misleading, but I notice the pictures have now been updated. The only one that was still misleading was the first one showing the red sun loungers - there was only 1 at the apartment when were there. Secondly the bedroom could do with re-decoration - but it looks like that has now been done.
The shower unit in the bathroom is old and doesn't work well. The owners should use it and I think they would agree that the shower cubicle should be replaced. It is old and a bit shabby.
What is wrong?
There is no microwave.
The description does not mention internet - it is there though the speed was slow.
The method of lighting the gas stove was dangerous, the spark machine was too small and I burned the hairs off my fingers, a longer one would improve it no end.
Kitchen equipment that we would like adding
good sharp knife
large frying pan
dishes for cooking in oven
washing up liquid
clean dishcloth - the one that was left was very unpleasant.
Communication subsequent to arrival was not so good. We twice visited the office during opening hours, some distance away, and found it closed with no message in the window.
Email communication subsequent to our visit was brief and curt, our deposit was not approved for return until about 10 days after leaving.
Finally Guilia - your title on trip advisor "Casa girasole amalfi coast" would look far more professional if you took time to add capitals like this "Casa Girasole Amalfi Coast".
All in all, we had a lovely time - we visited several restaurants and loved the fact that there is a small supermarket with most things you need , just a few metres walk from the bottom of the 80 steps, to cook some meals at home.
We want to come back again and we would return to Casa Girasole. We recommend this place.
