“Lovely apartment with stunning views”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our apartment was really wonderful, very clean,well equipped and with plenty of space. The views from the balcony were absolutely stunning. Etna was covered in snow and looked just amazing. The Schuler residence is situated in a quiet part of Taomina but only minutes from Corso Umberta, supermarket and restaurants galore. If you are planning to eat in then there is a very good market hidden away at the other end of the main street and there are plenty of stalls selling fresh fruit and veg. Claudio was very helpful and accommodating and takes great pride in his apartments. I would have no reservations in recommending it. Taomina generally is pretty challenging to drive through and the road up to the apartment is very narrow. If you are hiring a car, make sure it is not too big!!!

“Top Marks....almost!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This apartment is well located in Taormina and has spectacular views of the sea and Mt. Etna from the balcony. The owner Mr. Schuler was the perfect host and organised transport from Catania airport, provided a map of the town showing us the various sights and even allowed us to stay on for free in the apartment until mid afternoon on the day of our departure. Only 2 small gripes....you had to be on the balcony to access the wifi and the photos of the apartment on the website portray a more modern décor than in reality.

“It's the View!”

I can't say enough good things about Herr Schuler and his lovely apartment. The views are spectacular of both the sea and Mt. Etna. The apartment is spotless and well appointed for a convenient vacation, including a washer. The landscaping, including on the balcony is lovely and loved. The wifi rocks. Herr Schuler is kind, generous, and unobtrusive. The location is convenient to the western end of Corso Umberto down some lovely stairs with a bench at a halfway point!! And the price was more than reasonable! He also offers several solutions to the parking issue. And, as others have mentioned, he cheerfully leads you to the location if you call him on your arrival. Taking advantage of this is highly recommended! Thank you, Sir! I look forward to returning!

“Great view and proximity to center Taormina”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

Mr. Schuler was very professional on the front end, friendly and instructive upon arrival, and kind at the end. The apartment is large, well-stocked and well-situated near town. The balcony is large with a world-class view of the bay and Mt. Etna. It is a short walk into town; the steps up and down the hill may cause consternation for those with walking problems, but the result is worth the walk.

Liked best: The view, the proxmity to center city . . . all of Taormina!
Liked least: Parking is a problem; it was worth the extra parking fee to have a space on site.

“The wiew makes all the difference”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

It's a nice apartment, but nothing special. Quite large, with a nice ambience, but some of the furniture is really worn out, i.e. the mattresses and the sofa/armchairs - you can feel the springs through the cloth. WiFi exists but it is very very slow. Owner helpful, but seemed to be a bit tired of having a guesthouse.

But the wiew of the bay of Taormina and Mt. Etna is very very good, and the terrace is large, green and nice in all weather.

The immediate surroundings are quite nice also, but with some noise in the night from outside. The main pedestrian street, and all the restaurants, shops and cafes are very close. Taormina is a very expensive town though, even compared to a city like Venice or Rome. But we enjoyed our vacation there, even though we will probably not return.

“early break in sicilly”

person found this review helpful

Having just returned from a ten day break in Taormina, I felt I would say a few words in relation to our superb accomodation in The Residence Schuler. Mr Claudio Schuler the owner from the outset was a pleasure to deal with,his prompt replies to any e mails made a welcome change to some other establishments i have used.The description of Apt E was exactly correct,although very difficult to describe the view from the terrace this just has to be seen to believe,the bay of Naxos to the front and Mt Etna to the right,we even saw this erupting on one of the nights.
The Appartment has absolutely everything needed and has a homely feel to it,unlike so many holiday homes that are so basic almost like cells.Claudio met us on arrival and gave us the Grand Tour and then after that like all good hosts was available if needed but unobtrusive if not.Taormina is a beautiful with lovely restaurants,sensational scenery and friendly people .I hope to return at some stage but till then I urge anyone thinking of going check out The Residence Schuler I guarantee you wont be dissapointed
