Guestbook comments from the owner

See "Casa Josephina Ostuni" on TripAdvisor for complete reviews of excerpts below (and more). Casa Josephina has been rated 5 of 5 by all guests!



May 9, 2012 - “Great place to stay to explore Puglia!” We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was very nicely presented and had all the facilities etc that were necessary. It also has a roof terrace which looks out over the town.



It is situated within a five minute walk to the town centre and there is free parking around the park nearby, which we did not have a problem with despite the Easter festivals.



There are many attractions and towns to visit nearby, although a car is probably necessary for most of these.



Communication with the owners was very good and they responded promptly to any of our questions. Overall rating = 5 out of 5.





April 19, 2012 - “Charming Puglia residence” . Three floor apt near old Ostuni. Great location for day trips all over Puglia. Wonderful rooftop views. Overall rating = 5 out of 5.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Casa Josephina a perfect example of Ostuni living, and offers plenty of space to enjoy your time here, both inside and out. The house was redecorated and refurnished in 2012. The character of the home was maintained while the furnishings and entertainment options were modernized. The stone architecture is magnificent and also helps keep the home cool in the summer. That being said, heating and air-conditioning is also available. The stairways are large by Ostuni standards, and unlike many Ostuni properties, most people won't have problems with head-bumping, the stairs may be steep for some. Based on that, the property is not recommended to those that have trouble going up/down flights of stairs. Also based on the stairs/terraces, the house is not recommended for those with toddlers. Casa Josephina is a non-smoking property. Outside: The lower level terrace is accessible from the kitchen (believe me when I say this is very handy) and includes a dining area for 6 and a large umbrella for times when shade is desired. Stairs lead to the upper terrace with a sofa/lounge area, and additional seating, offering spectacular panoramic views of the sea, cathedral and centro storico. The views of the town illuminated in the evening are especially stunning. The terraces are flat and tiled. There is a gas BBQ grill available. Utility Room: Ground Floor/Garage - The clothes washer is located here. Abundant storage space is available here for empty suitacases and belongings, which is a great way to free up valuable living space. A 2nd sofa bed, seating and bath are also located on this floor. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaning, as well as high-quality linens and towels are included. Beach towels are also provided.

Beautiful old Ostuni house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Ostuni. The house was comfortable, had all we needed, beautiful view of Ostuni from the roof terrace. It is priceless to experience living in 18th century house. Location is also great,easy access to shops and stunning beaches. The owners were helpful and flexible to our needs. It is highly recommended. Thank you

Stunning property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a great location handy for everything. the pictures don't do it justice it really is a great mix of traditional meets modern. the roof top terrace is superb with great views and tranquility.

barely 10 minutes walk and you can be in the middle of the old town (beautiful) equally the same time (opposite direction) to the middle of the new town. don't just read about it if this is the area you want to go to, this the house to stay in. many places around to visit

Amazing Stay at Casa Josephina

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Josephina for 2 nights in July, and the only problem was that we wished we could have stayed longer. The property has everything you could ever need for a comfortable stay. The house still retains its old world charm with tile floors, chandeliers, and stone ceilings, while having all modern amenities. It is in the perfect location – a 5 minute walk to the main square where you can find all the shops and restaurants, and a 5 minute walk to the park where you can enjoy the greenery and have a coffee. The house has 2 outdoor terraces which are amazing. We enjoyed our morning coffee and lunch on the lower terrace, while we had a glass of wine on the upper terrace while enjoying the views of the entire town and the sea. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Our security deposit was promptly refunded. We will definitely be back!

An excellent 18th Century Town House

  • 5 of 5

A large 3 storey town house plus 2 good size roof terraces. 2 shower/toilet facilities, one small shower room but a larger shower in the basement. Kitchen complete with fridge and small freezer compartment, microwave, gas hob, plenty of utensils, large gas bbq, washing machine and hairdryer. A good supply of fresh towels, bedlinen and beach towels. The property was clean, nice decor and well maintained. The stairs are narrow and the steps are deep. When booking Paul & Debbie was excellent with a quick response to our enquiry and with a full in depth information pack on the property, places to eat and visit. This property is excellent if you are looking for a relaxing holiday and wish to explore the wonderful city of Ostuni and the beautiful region of Puglia. We will defiantly be returning. Thank your Paul & Debbie for sharing your delightful apartment.

Outstanding house in beautiful Ostuni

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay in Casa Josephina. This house has everything you could wish for and more. Very well equipped and very clean, it even has air con if you need it. It has an outdoor terrace for dining and rooftop terrace for relaxing with amazing views to Ostuni old town and the sea beyond. We enjoyed using the BBQ on the upper terrace while watching the sun set. Perfect location, the house is in a quiet cobbled street but only a few minutes walk into the main square. Call in to Mona Lisa café on the way in to town for the best cappuccino in Puglia , they do superb cocktails too. Pauline, the house manager, is very helpful with lots of hints and tips and is only a few minutes walk away if you need her (and English too). Debbie and Paul the owners have been great from start to finish, very quick to reply about availability , information pack was so detailed it should be an example to all, deposit returned promptly, books maps and guides available in the house, 10 out of 10 for attention to detail. Ostuni is a lovely historic town with narrow cobbled streets, city walls, Cathedral, lots of restaurants, best ice cream ever, and is a perfect base to see some of the sights of Puglia. Places to visit while in the area are Alberobello to see the Trulli houses, Martina Franca old town, Polignano a Mare for the cliffs, Grottoes of Castellana be sure to do the long tour. We caught the train to Lecce and at only 11 euros return per adult it was an excellent day out. Brindisi airport is a 35 minute drive along the coast and I believe a Pullman coach runs from there to Ostuni making this an easily accessible place to stay.

We hope to return and will definitely look to stay in Casa Josephina, we felt so relaxed and at home there, thank you to Debbie and Paul for sharing their wonderful house with us.
