I have been coming to Capri for years and I have stayed at all the best; Quisisana, Capri Palace, JK, you name it.
The Private Trade Winds property blows them all away. I have rented private homes before and unless the staff is competent, it can be a nightmare. I did not miss the 5-star hotel service for one second. The PTW staff is truly, truly amazing. I can see PTW hand picks them all. These are professionals and they really knew how to make us feel at "home" and with the kind of service we expect, whether it's getting some food at 1am, ice for my drink at 2am or coffee at 5am, the staff was just awesome.
The Villa, on the other hand, leaves me speechless. I am convinced there is no better home on the island, period. Private, spacious, elegant, and my list of adjectives could go on and on. I don't know what else to say except you have to see it and experience it to believe it.
