“Casa Costa - Beautiful Apartment, Brilliant Location, Excellent Hosts”

Couldn't be happier with the choice of accommodation for our holiday in Taormina. The apartment was faultless inside (descriptions accurate), and with a lovely balcony with views to the sea and (partially) to Etna. Central to the many fantastic bars and restaurants along and around Corso Umberto. 10 mins stroll to Cable Car down to the lovely (busy!) beaches at Mazzaro and Isola Bella. Taormina was great as a base for day trips to Mount Etna (recommend Eddy Tronchet/Legendary Sicily), Siracusa and others (head North for a taste of Sicily within easy reach). Paola and Max were brilliant before and during the holiday with advice and suggestions, arrangements for the transfer to/from airport, scuba dive, Etna trip. The apartment is very secure, being part of Paola's extended family residence, who were also very friendly when you occasionally met! Loved it all. Thanks Paola and Max.

“Casa Costa - Excellent Appartment in a Fantastic Location”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

I have just returned from a week at Casa Costa, it is an excellent apartment in a superb location, as it is a stones throw from the Corsa Umberto the hub of Taormina, the Restaurants, Gelato shops and 5 Minutes from the local supermarket.

The apartment is well kitted out, with all you need for your stay and the 2nd bathroom is a bonus in a 2 bed apartment. The terrace is a real plus point with delightful views of the Sea and Etna.

Paola and Max welcomed us in person and provided a welcome pack as it was Sunday and the supermarket was closed.

Casa Costa is great for couples and children alike, but young children need to be supervised on the terrace due to the steps.

Taormina itself is a fantastic location for a holiday and I would thoroughly recommend both the Town and Casa Costa.

“Perfect apartment in a perfect location”

Just back from a fantastic week at Casa Costa. The apartment has everything required for a relaxing, enjoyable holiday; it is very well equipped and very clean & comfortable. The terrace is great for meals in the sunshine or just relaxing and enjoying the views of Mount Etna and the coast. The 'extras' provided by Paulo & Max were much appreciated - a supply of food, a bottle of wine, a bowl of fruit , toiletries - so kind and thoughtful. Nothing was too much trouble, when we asked for a sun umbrella Max brought one within hours. The location is perfect; just a few minutes walk from good restaurants ( the fish from the restaurants below the apartment was wonderful) , cafes and shops but quiet and peaceful. The information provided by Paulo on arrival was invaluable for sightseeing and eating out. Would not hesitate to go back.

“Our perfect holiday apartment”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from a wonderful holiday staying in the Casa Costa toarmina, from the moment we arrived to we left everything we needed for our stay was there. Max & Paola were there to greet us on our arrival and showed us around their beautiful apartment. They were very helpful providing us with information on restaurant, best pizza & points of interest to see on our stay. As we arrived late it was fantastic to see supplies for us to eat in the fridge which is very kind of Paola & max. The location of the apartment is perfect so close to the main corso umberto street which was handy for us as we had 2 young children. There were 4 adults & 2 children which the apartment was ideal for with plenty of space, the boys had plenty of space play both inside and out. I would highly recommend casa Costa for a wonderful stay if you ever go to visit the beautiful place of toarmina, Sicily. Thanks so much to max & paola 2 perfect hosts, your Irish lodgers from this week x

“Fabulous !Apartment / Fabulous location”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in the beautiful Casa Costa for five days in early May. The reviews for this beautiful apartment are accurate and it deserves the 5 stars it has received from Trip Advisor. Paola and Max have made a big effort and it shows. We arrived late at night but were met within 5 minutes by Max who kindly showed us around the spacious, well equipped apartment and recommended a great restaurant for pizza as were were starving. The next morning we woke to a beautiful sunny day and a magnificent view of a beautiful snow capped Mount Etna (thereafter we ate our breakfast and I read some really good novels on the terrace!) Paola called around the next morning and helpfully answered all the questions we had for her in relation to best places to eat, where to find the bus stop/car hire, beaches etc - this was hugely beneficial as it saved us a lot of time aimlessly searching trying to find things. The location of the apartment could not be better, just of the main street, yet quite and peaceful during the day and night. We have fond memories of Casa Costa - I would love to go back someday. Thank you Paola and Max for making our holiday in Taormina so special and memorable :) The Meehan"s, Kildare, Ireland.

“The apartment is kept like it was Paola's family home - which it is!”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

It cost half again the price of our last rental - but provided triple the advantages. The apartment is an extraordinary value: for location, facilities and supplies, comfort, and service. Our best rental, ever. We were standing in snows of Etna in the morning, and wading at the beach in the afternoon. The benefits of a touristy area are dozens of restaurants within metres, and lots of shops. Unlike many tourist destinations, shopkeepers and restaurant staff have kept their enthusiasm and friendliness toward visitors, and we felt welcome everywhere.
We suggest the restaurant directly beneath the apartment - great seafood. Tell the manager you are staying at Casa Costa for a warm welcome, and complimentary homemade Lemoncello!
