Outstanding and quite large property, right on the Porta Felice with amazing outdoor space and views. The apartment is well furnished with a very high level of equipment (from the number of pillow and bedding choices to coffee machine, panini press and a huge shade parasol on the terrace. Nice high quality bits and bobs to welcome us as well (wine, beer, water, snacks etc). Everything in the apartment was of a good quality. Plus Giovanni arranged a great and well priced airport transfer for us as well. A really good choice for us - we loved it.

The location and views were perfect. The house was well laid out and so clean. The host was very helpful and got us everything we needed. One of our friends said the view was “epic” and we agree.

Wonderful terrace with view of harbour - we loved watching the cruise liners arrive and depart: very spacious, well-equipped apartment: host Giovanni and his mother Marina responded immediately to problems and could not have been more helpful. The apartment is in the Kalsa, the old Arab quarter and a great location. Lots of restaurants, bars, a Sunday Market, and museums like Palazzo Mirto, Palazzo Butera and Palazzo Abatellis are all within walking distance. If we return to Palermo we would not want to stay anywhere else!

Wonderfully located and outfitted rental. Impromptu loud nighttime music in adjoining square made sleeping difficult for some in our party but others were unaffected. Views from the terraces were fabulous.

We could not have asked for a more beautiful apartment in the heart of Palermo. We enjoyed every minute staying here. The apartment was extremely roomy, with many rooms, including three large bedrooms, a great kitchen, an excellent living room, and some amazing views of the sea! Not only that, but there is a balcony which leads to an unbelievably large private rooftop terrace. We had a new year's eve barbecue on the terrace and it was an experience that we will never forget. The apartment is easy walking distance from the main tourist areas of Palermo and many restaurants. It is such a convenient location! If you wish to rent a car, then it is possible to obtain a parking spot and the correct permit. The property manager, Giovanni, was extremely helpful and responsive. He answered all of our questions quickly and he made absolutely sure that we had everything we needed. He also had many suggestions for what to do in Palermo. We couldn't have asked for a better host. If you're in Palermo with a family, this apartment will make you very happy.

Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche in dem Appartment verbracht. Giovanni ist ein sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter und stets ansprechbarer Gastgeber. Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig und mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Aber der Oberhammer ist natürlich die Dachterasse! Die Wohnung befindet sich im obersten Stockwerk eines auf den ersten Blick etwas unscheinbaren Hauses. Dieses ist jedoch architekturgeschichtlich überaus interessant. Giovanni wird auf Nachfrage bestimmt gerne hierzu einiges ausführen. Zu erwähnen ist noch, dass wir kein Wasser schleppen mussten. Eine kurze Nachricht an Giovanni genügte und es stand neues vor der Tür. Sehr angenehm. Ach ja: Der Flughafentransfer wird auf Wunsch auch von Giovanni organisiert, was sehr praktisch ist. Wir können die Wohnung nur jedem wärmstens empfehlen.

Only place to stay in Palermo
We have used VRBO and its predecessor a lot. Giovanni is the best host we have had, bar none. From answering questions promptly, to helping us get transportation from the airport, to making accommodations for our bags as we were checking out, he always was exceedingly helpful. The pictures of the unit do not do it justice. The property is large, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The patio you see in the picture is huge and private to this unit. The location is a short walk away from a market, the pier and many excellent restaurants. If you are coming to Palermo, look no further - book this property.

Just stop looking...
I recall another reviewer saying of this apartment, "Just stop looking." I thought of the accuracy of that review several times while staying here. It's hard to imagine you'll find a better place, in terms of location and quality. Giovanni is helpful and generous. Just stop looking.

Fantastico!
My bride (of 37yrs!) and I were almost overwhelmed by the kindness, support and grace of our hosts and their team. From the arranged airport pick-up, the drive to town (our second visit to Palermo) and arrival at the unit, we were ready for an extended sojourn into Sicilian life. Our comfort, safety and ease of living were their top priorities. As we practice a 'tread lightly' ethos, we were near food stores, a genial neighborhood, cultural sites and friendly environs. The unit is very large, is zoned for either quiet/privacy areas with plenty of doors to and has kitchen/laundry facilities. (Side note- we are shopping for a clothes drying rack! Our dryer is going on hiatus until fall/winter.) You might want to have ear plugs handy, as the areas nearby large buildings tend to amplify street-level activity. Now 2 days away from the end of our month long stay, we miss most, sitting on the balcony or terrace watching the cruise ships, fishing boats and ferries glide by; marveling at the Italian voice-actors on dubbed American TV shows; the smells/sounds of the Porta Felice, the shops on Vittorio Emanuelle, fresh brioch, elegant gelatos; good, cheap wine; a warm 'bon giorno' from Pino as we leave for a day out; precarious foot paths; NatGeo quality photo ops; vibrant and loud conversations; the four-finger Sicilian hand gesture and shoulder shrugs. Our stay was a revelation to us: that we could have so many creature comforts that our souls were able to relax, breathe and take in what Palermo offered. This, was the trip of a lifetime. Thanks to Marina, Giovanni and Pino. We highly recommend our friends to you for your consideration.
