“Great Location and View but a few Cons”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Pros: Great location and views, communication with host and caretaker is good, nice outdoor area, quiet.

Cons: I know Taormina is an expensive place to be regarding accommodation, but we stayed in quite a few rentals in Italy and Sicily and this was the most expensive and standards was the lowest.

In terms of standards I am referring too the condition of some appliances provided to us. For example the Wifi is unusable, extremely slow and its valuable to have to research your travel plans. Kettle had water in it with paint that had been corroded off the bottom of the kettle on arrival.

A damp/musty smell through the apartment, suspecting some dampness/feeling in the rooms.

Used the oven, functional but seemed to be a surge current running though it, buzzes a zapps when touched.

Dishwasher and Washing machine provided, but no detergents provided. Not a big deal but there is no main supermarket close by unless you want to go up to Taormina.

Look overall it wasn't a holiday wrecker, just think for 140 euro a night plus bond and cleaning fee, some of the appliances need some maintenance and we expected a bit more than just a view.

“Lovely spacious clean accommodation with great outdoor space and wonderful views!”

We were very pleased with the accommodation which contained everything we needed and within a very short walk close to mini markers and restaurants. We were able to cook our own meals on occasions and take advantage of eating outside on our terrace admiring the beautiful views of the Bay of Mazzaro. The accommodation is very conveniently situated close to two beaches which both have public access areas. At a cost of 10 Euros you are also able to hire a beach sun lounger and parasol for the day which would also give you access to toilets, changing rooms and showers. There are buses to the town of Taormina and for 3
Euros (single trip) a chance to access the town by a very quick and frequent cable car service which is only 5 minutes walk away from the accommodation. The town is well worth a visit full of lovely shops and a wide range of restaurants, we even found the Wednesday market which sold a wide range of fruit and vegetables at considerably lower prices than the mini markets. Taormina also has a couple of supermarkets (further end of town) which sell all produce cheaper than the local mini markets and if you have a car it is worth travelling out of town to the larger supermarkets near Giardini Naxos, here you will be able to save considerably on bottled water, fruit, vegetables and local meats.
A visit to the amphitheatre in Taormina is worth doing you will get some beautiful pictures and views from the site.
We hired a car for a few days and drove to Mount Etna for the day. This was very easy to do as the roads are well signposted and we were able to do the day at our own pace. All tickets can be purchased there and you have the choice on how far up Etna you would like to travel (cable car and then by a 4x4 vehicle if you pay the extra to take you to the top).
Our stay in Taormina was excellent and we have brought back some lovely memories from a beautiful place.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Very strategic location with a stunning view over the bay of Mazzaro . You could spend hours on the terrace at night without feeling any lassitude , Ideal for rest and romantic escape ! close to the beach and to Funivia for Taormina .
My only regret was the absence of TV while i was promising myself to watch the Football Mondial at that period , There is no telephone on site also so it is recommended to have your own mobile phone functioning on site . Horrible singer from the luxury Hotel downside , fortunately alternating with an excellent Jazz pianist ! I will not hesitate to come back however , Ms. Magda is a delicious classy Lady always concerned to make her guests feel satisfied ! which was the case finally .

The apartment is ideally located in Mazzaro' within easy walking distance to the cable car up to Taormina. The photos shown in Tripadvisor are exactly what you will find. We were welcomed by Signora Ines who is the caretaker of the property and who ensured that we had everything we needed for our stay. I would have no hesitation in recommeding this rental to anyone who wants to spend some time in the Taormina/Mazzaro' area - certainly one of the most idyllic locations in the Mediterranean.
