“Brilliant vista”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We decided to go for the top floor apartment in the same block, which has fantastic views over Taormina and the bay, and sunrise, also partial view of Etna at the back. Location great, only a few steps to the beach, a little further to the centre of Giardini, but there are plenty of restaurants at this end of town and it's a little quieter.
Apartment was clean and functional, 2 rooms with a double and a single bed, light and spacious: maybe a little worn in places but certainly not bad and everything working.
Parking was good, not sure how full it gets at peak times. Convenient to get to the autostrada if you want to visit other places.
Taormina - can park above Isola Bella or by the cable car (Mazzaro), bus worth considering although we didn't use it.
Note that the lift is not on the same level as the apartment, so you need to go up a few steps.

“Best Location in Giardini...but...”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The apartment is located in the best location in Giardini (towards the end of the city, near the small port). The whole building was empty apart from an handful of apartments (its a holiday sort of building where people have second home). The apartment per se is quite OK, nothing fancy and definitely not as described on the site (beautifully furnished it mentioned..give me a break....NO WAY...unless beautifully furnished means be made up by a cupboard with a drawer missing or a table with a doggy leg). The owner is weird too. let me explain: I specifically chose the place based on the fact that it had WIFI..we arrive and there was no WIFI (of course) and the owner would not return my call for 1.5 days...finally after 4 days, he installed a router to allow me to use the net.
There was not a single knife in the kitchen to be able to cut some bread...another weird thing if you rent out an apartment for vacation (Thanks good I had my swiss army knife), there is no light in the kitchen making cooking in the evening quite risky (you cannot see much what you are doing).
Thats all.

Management Response

Mr Vassallo, thanks for review. Our excuses for the missing drawer, it is already replaced and if you could be more tolerant you could understand that its nothing more but a damage left by previous guests which was not possible to restore in short period of time. In the kitchen there is a light and knifes, we are sorry that you was not able to find it during 2 weeks of staying. WiFi works perfect, the signal is ok, and the weak recept of your notebook during the first days of your staying was improved asap with a purchase of a new router, so your sarcasm is not appropriate at all.
Now regards the 'weird' owner.. From the booking date up to arrival each day you sent us a message with different requests: you choosed one apartment and decided to change it for another - we accepted, you asked for a microwave - we bought it, you ask for cradle - we bought cradle, high chair and bath for your baby and provided you with it free of charge, you asked for early check-in on Easter sunday - we confirmed also free of charge, you asked for early deposit refund - we confirmed. We were happy to fulfill all your wishes. And you? You left after yourself apartment full of rubish and disorder like never before and acid review full of unkindness. It is a sign of bad manners and narrow-mindedness. We absolutely do not recommend you to other houseowners.
