“spacious apartment excellently situated”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My wife and spent two weeks in the apartment in May. It was clean and well-equipped and the view from the balcony was wonderful. Ezio looked after us really well. The only small complaint I have was that the wifi signal wasn't quite strong enough to reach the apartment, which was on the third floor. However, that didn't really inconvenience us very much, as we were able to access it in the hallway on the ground floor. Overall a lovely apartment which I would definitely recommend.

“Can't wait to come back!”

I stayed in this apartment for 2.5 weeks with my parents, brother and sister in June/July 2013. The apartment was very spacious and clean although basic, but this was not a problem for us as it was totally adequate and had all necessary appliances incl washing machine and TV. Another point to note is that the cost of electricity is included in the price - this is often an extra cost in other Sicilian rentals.
The owner Ezio's mother Francesca lives on the 1st floor of the building and she is a lovely woman who went out of her way to be helpful and welcoming, as did Ezio himself.
The location is superb...the huge balcony looks right onto Letojanni beach; we really enjoyed sitting out there in the mornings/evenings.
While Letojanni is quite quiet, there are some lovely restaurants and supermarkets and the local people are really friendly.
It is less than a 10 minute drive to spectacular Taormina (a bus also goes every hour) so we went up there most nights for dinner and a change of scenery.
Overall the apartment was fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone, although, as mentioned by other reviewers, the 84 steps up to it may dissuade anyone travelling with the elderly or young children!
Will definitely be back here again!

“Well worth the climb”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We were welcomed at Casa Rando by the owners mother Francesca who is the sunniest and warmest of people, she showed us to the rooftop apartment 84 steps up from the street. The apartment had 3 bedrooms a single, a twin and a double. The bathroom had a shower (no bath) and a washing machine (very handy). The living area was open plan and opened out to the very spacious roof terrace which had a table and chairs where we were able to eat our meals, and two sun beds to lie and read in the sun. The beach was literally ten yards from the front door of the house but be warned to bring beach shoes as there are a lot of stones. There is a small bar next door which sells hot paninis and fabulous ice creams along with the local beers ( very friendly people ).
As a couple the apartment was perfect for us,but I wouldn't want to have to carry a small child up the 84 stairs.
