“Good location near the beach”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

As earlier reviews mention it's not on the beach, but close. As close at in can be since it's a road between the beach and the residential quarters in Giardini Naxos. A bit of sea view from the balcony. It's also conveniently located in the very centre with most things needed just outside the door. The garden outside is really nice and well taken care of but the exterior of the houses is a bit rough.

Owners are very helpful and speaks good english. They gave us good advice about the neighbourhood and were available by phone or sms during our whole stay.

The apartment is recently renovated, nice and stylish. What keeps us back from giving it a 5* rating is that there is a few things that do need a bit of maintenance even though it's quite new.

“disgusting place”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were going to stay in this apartment for five days , but were forced to leave the next day, without refund. The walls are very thin, it was cold in the winter , in the summer , I think it will be hot . Conditioners cheapest brands very noisy . All wiring can not withstand the inclusion of two or more air conditioners off. Incorporating cutout located two hundred meters. Wiring located very dangerous , powerful electrical appliances included in the tees , can be fire. The apartment stands strong smell of dampness . If you look at the photo , you might think that the apartments are the first line of the sea . This is not so , the fourth line across the road.

“The heart of Italy - Sicilia Bella”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Alessandro and Lea were very welcoming and warm as expected true Sicilian style. We felt right at home at this apartment tucked away from the main Via Naxos chaos but with a tranquil view of the sea. The property is well looked after and the children enjoyed the small playground. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, The location is ideal as we travelled south to Siracusa and north beyond the majestic Taormina and inland to the Etnae towns. Just perfect!
