5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Located only 5 minutes walking distance from the beach and 10 minutes from the centre, Casa del Mar residence compromises of modern, clean apartments with AC, equipped with a kitchenette and beautiful garden. Marina di Modica is a good base with only a short distance to Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, Ispica and Pozzallo. Walter was very helpful and friendly, he even gave us a lift to the centre and suggested some restaurants and bars.
Would definitely recommend Walter and Casa Del Mar Residence to anyone :)

We were so pleased with this peaceful, spacious apartment, that we booked for 4 nights and stayed for 8! Casa del Mar is a beautiful, family-owned and very well kept residence (head for Pozzallo, then signs for Marina de Modica and then Casa del Mar). The apartment was light and clean with 2 bedrooms, 2 balconies, secure parking and free bikes. It was a great base for swimming and sightseeing (Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, Ispica, Montalbano territory etc), with a gentle rocky coast at the end of the lane and 2 large sandy bays along the coastal track. The family (who also speak English, German etc) are charming and professional. There are good, simple restaurants in Marina de Modica and Pozzallo open all year and food shops nearby. Car recommended. It is so far south with warm seas and sunshine that a winter holiday seems very tempting!

Room Tip: Some 1st floor apartments have views across to the sea.

Our holiday in Sicily was made even better because of Walter whose family own the apartments here. He was friendly and helpful and was so kind to us. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and the garden so tranquil and beautiful that I could have stayed on holiday longer! It is only 5 minutes walk to the sea and a short car ride to the restaurants in Marina Di Modica. If you're looking for Inspector Montalbano locations Casa del Mar is an excellent base to stay in as Punta Secca, Scicli, and Modica all in this area. The port of Pozallo for the ferry to Malta is only a few miles away. All in all this place is superb and I intend to go back there next year. Irene.

The Casa Del Mar is a family owned/run residence and we were greeted by Walter (the son) on arrival, who made us very welcome and even gave us a lift to and from the local restaurant on our first night.

Afterwards, he was able to arrange car hire for us which is invaluable if you want to get around the area sight-seeing as buses are infrequent.

Casa Del Mar is a great location as Modica and Regusa are close by as is Punta Secca and Scicli. The area is popular with Inspector Montelbano fans as the programme is filmed here.

Our ground floor apartment was comfortable and extremely clean; two bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen/dining/living area with a private patio with seating overlooking the beautiful and well cared for gardens.

The beach is only a five minute walk away via a pedestrian lane and very child safe.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Casa Del Mar as the ideal bolt hole for sight-seeing around the south of Sicily or for a relaxing beach holiday in the sun.

The staff are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful.

There are also various restaurants in Marina di Modica and there is a small bar on site at Casa Del Mar. We had a wonderful holiday at Casa Del Mar and we were sad to say goodbye - we are sure you will too.

Room Tip: You have a choice of patio or balcony rooms, either is excellent.
