“A perfect place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2009

Toto and Kathy were perfect host. They could not do enough for you. I almost felt guilty with the way we were treated. They treated us like we were royalty. This was by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed. You could eat off the floors it was so clean. I can't recommend this B&B highly enough. Toto went above and beyond in helping us find our roots in Sicily. He did much advanced work so that when we arrived we were all set to go. Kathy was the perfect host. What wonderful breakfast she presented every morning. I would not hesitate to go back there in an instant. This B&B has it all. Value, spotlessly clean, friendly host, peaceful surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere. A can't miss B&B.

This place was great. I would recomend it to any one looking for great value and wonderful service. We will use this B&B next time we are there.
Ther directing Kathy gave us were easy to follow.

She sent us to a great place to eat the night we got in and had a wonderful breakfast for us the next day.

Kathy helped my son with flight info.

Great place great value. If you fly into Palermo and need a place to stay try Home from Home you will love it.

My wife and I stayed at this B&B along with my mom and dad in April 2009. Kathy's passion for hosting was evident everywhere, from thoughtful touches in the rooms (loved the bed heaters!) to her much-appreciated assistance in booking a last-minute flight from Sicily. As with most of our traveling in Sicily, we were grateful to have had GPS assisting us in finding the B&B, though Kathy was also available by phone. We really enjoyed our stay--wish we could have stayed longer than one night!

We stayed at Home From Home in November, and could not be more pleased with our experience. Between extra help in making appointments at wineries, to recommending area restaurants, to assuring that we did not leave the house hungry, Kathy and Toto were perfect hosts. We would recommend Home From Home to all travellers!

Home from Home has no match with any other b and b we stayed at during our two week trip throughout Sicily, or anywhere esle for that matter. The owners, Kathy and Toto are kind and helpful, generous and accommodating. It felt as though we were staying at a five star luxury hotel with extra special service.

When we arrived on a cold, wet evening, the beds were warmed, and Kathy welcomed us by opening a nice bottle of wine.
For breakfast Kathy offered delicious pancakes with maple syrup, cold cuts, fresh, great smelling bread, cakes, cookies, a selections of jams. Not to forget the cappucino for two, which was about the best we had in Italy.

EVERYTHING at Home from Home was PERFECT! Had we known about this wonderful place before leaving for Sicily, we would have stayed there longer, instead of moving from place to place we could have arranged our excursions from there.

Our family from Australia had a wonderful time in this Bed and Breakfast. I do not think it would be possible to find a better run Bed and Breakfast anywhere in the world. Kathy has everything you may need and takes lots of time taking with you helping you see the best of Sicily. Toto got beautiful bread rolls for us straight from the bakery each morning and drove us into Palermo one day. This greatly reduced our stress and meant we could see much more.
Even though we were there in the middle of winter we had lovely cosy rooms and it was easy to sleep well.Our bags had gone missing due to disruption by airlines so we were very grateful Kathy and Toto continually rang up for us to get them back . Finally in the middle of the night Toto drove to the freeway to intercept a courier so we could have the bags to return to Australia. We were very grateful for this and also the fact that Kathy had offered us spare clothes in the meantime when we did not have our bags. They did not charge us for all the extra time and calls they made on our behalf.
I am sure they did more for us than some of our own relatives or friends would have done so i would really recommend you stay with them - not to would be missing out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to make friends with a beautiful couple

Kathy and Toto are perfect hosts and Ambassadors of the area. Kathy's attention to detail and amazingly quick communication responses and availablity are priceless. Kathy has an infectious smile, is gracious, lovely and generous. Toto is a delightful host too! Their breakfasts are outrageously delicious and abundant, and their afternoon tea is a welcoming treat. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed, clean and quiet ; the private bathrooms are also clean, spacious and well stocked, not to mention the very plush bath towels. Kathy and Toto's absolute knowledge of the area and their B&B's proximity to Palermo, Cefalu and Agrigento are a travelers paradise. Though having a car is preferable, one can arrange a trip with Toto at the helm. They are a real find.
