“Very well designed apartment, in excellent central location”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

It was all that was advertised. All the equipment worked well, the place was spotless, the handing over the keys etc. well managed. It is in the centre of Taormina, which means inevitably steps in all directions - not suitable for those who avoid steps. Cars have to be left elsewhere. We missed wi-fi, but there was an internet cafe at the foot of the entry to the lane, i.e. very close. The roof terrace had wonderful views. We thought perhaps there might be more than 2 deckchairs, as there are likely to be 4 in the apartment? Not a problem for us as only 2 wanted to lie in the sun. Can't think of anything else that could improve life there. Taormina is a great place, very crowded in parts even in April, but there are lots of peaceful lanes and courts off the main street.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This apartment is located next to, but also aloof of, Corso Umberto, the main road of the town with all its continuous flow of tourists and streetlife. It overlooks, with two rooftop terraces, the town and the whole bay. The entrance is up a narrow stair, and at the first floor the two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with two separate bed) and the small, but convenient bathroom are located. On the upper floor (reached by yet another steep, winding stair) there is a living room with adjacent small kitchen, and a wide window door providing access to the rooftop terraces and the view of the bay from the Roman Theatre to the snow-capped top of Etna. The rooms are furnished with taste and particular reference to what the guest really needs and what not, differing very much from the usual haphazard way of equipment of such accommodations. The owners are very helpful and friendly and provided for our Easter stay a basket of oranges and two big surprise chocolate eggs for our daughters. The apartment is very quiet notwithstanding its central location. Parking in the nearby Porta Catania garage costs 50 euro a week. The walk from there to the apartment is easy and short enough. Highly recommended even if we experienced only the off-season time.

We spent one week in this apartment while attending our nephew's wedding. All the reviews are 100% correct. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The apartment was perfect in every way but we do agree with the helpful comments made. We had never before stayed in an apartment which supplied tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits as well as cooking accompaniments. Virginia was at the end of the phone throughout and her mother Pina was lovely. We felt help was at hand 24 hours a day if needed. As we were on Aer Lingus night flight we were concerned about where to leave our luggage during the day. The O Seven Irish Bar near the apartment held on to our luggage for us until it was time to leave as we had spent a few lively nights there during our week and we really appreciated their help. Tony, his wife and staff at The Time Out Bar at Porta Messina also deserve a mention. We would return to John and Virgininia's apartment in a heartbeat.

“Most enjoyable holiday experience”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My sister and I spent a very happy week in the Apartment. The location is superb and close enough to all activities without any noise. Able to nip back for a cup of tea and then continue with the holiday! All as advertised, very clean and well provided for. Lots of stairs but OK if taken slowly. We were met by Virginia's mum who ably showed us round the place and explained how everything worked. Weather was very hot and the air conditioning was excellent so we slept well. No complaints at all.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The flat was great. In the centre of Taormina's historic city, and all its attractions and restaurants, supermarket round the corner. It is quiet, clean comfortable and modern. We highly recommend this flat.
