We stayed here for 3 nights with our two children aged 3 and 5, and the apartment was just perfect for us. The location is fantastic, with an incredible view of isola bella, and it's a very short walk down a few steps to the beach,with lots of restaurants, cafes etc. nearby. It's also very easy to get up into beautiful Taormina town with the cable car (the cable car station is just a short walk from the apartment) or if you are feeling fit, you can walk up the (many) steps, which start just across the road from the top of the steps to the beach - we did this one day, and it was worth it for the fantastic views (and to feel like you had earned your lunch/worked off a few gelatos!). Angelo was really kind and welcoming and the apartment has absolutely everything you could need - there is also a private parking place (which I think is quite unusual for Taormina). We had an excellent time and would love to come back. Highly recommended.
