“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We -2 couples of one family- stayed for 10 days in September! (A perfect time).We agree with all the other reviews- but were surprised by the spacious and practical layout of our Apartment. This is very unusual in Europe especially -for that price. All inclusive and no extra charges WE loved the little park right in front with Saint guarding our entrance door. Claudio is the perfect host.

Booked this place due to tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Stayed in apt b as we had read that it had a huge balcony, and can say that it surpassed our expectations. Incredible views of the bay and an outdoor shower to cool off when sunbathing. The location was great, only a 5 min uphill walk from the corso Umberto. The apt was very spacious and well equipped and Claudio was available at any time to assist. Overall we really loved our stay here and would recommend residence schueler to anyone going to taormina.

We had decided to holiday in Sicily and after many hours of trawling through websites and issuing emails I stumbled accross Residence Schuler... firstly I was impressed with how quickly Claudio replied. We had planned to stay in Taormina for 4 nights before heading to the South of the island. Claudio was able to rent us Apartment C.

The Apartment is tricky to locate but if you follow the detailed directions which Claudio provides then you should be fine (just prepare yourself for some narrow streets, very sharp turns and steep climbs)... If you think you have made a mistake you can always call Claudio and he will come and help but we managed it without any trouble.

The apartment was excellent and provided everything you would need for a fantastic stay in Taormina. The Kitchen was great, and the master bedroom had a wonderful view first thing in the morning

As testiment to how good this was...We stayed in a variety of places whilst on Sicily and we both agreed this is the place we would go back to, the location, the views, the town of Taormina were all simply excellent.

We stayed in Apartment D in August. It was very well equipped with everything you could need - it also has 2 bathrooms which was unexpected - also the showers are very large for Sicily! The balcony is spectacular, looking out towards the sea and towards Etna. Claudio is very helpful and unobtrusive - he gave us a great introduction to Taormina and organised a beach trip for us to a very nice private beach. The supermarket is very handy and the steps are not as bad as everyone says! Location is very central while being quiet. Wifi was available in the front rooms which was fine. Would heartily recommend.

Large terrace overlooking the Ionian Sea and Mt Etna. Super clean well organized vacation apartment. 10 minute walk to the center of Taormina, 3 minutes from a supermarket. Our gracious host, Claudio even met us on his scooter to escort us the property. This was a wonderful stop for us in the middle of a busy travel schedule. This apartment had everything you would want or need placed exactly where you would want it, kitchen tools, laundry facilities, outdoor dining table, sun chairs.

I just got married in Taormina and needed somewhere for my family and friends to stay. I picked Residence Schuler as it is close to the Corso Umberto and has separate apartments, which ment the different family's could stay in their own apartments yet we were all in the same building.
Claudio is more than helpful and a gentleman.
All of the apartments are brilliant with breathtaking views.
One night we had music and food in the bigger apartment type C, it was perfect.
There is a supermarket just down the road. The walk up can be steep for some people however everywhere you go in Taormina can be steep so there is no avoiding this unless you stay right on the Corso Umberto.
If I was having a family holiday here again I would go back without hesitation.

Walk from your spacious apartment on to your private terrace and there lies the Ionian Sea below, turn your face to the right and Mt Etna towers above. All around range the well-manicured gardens of the proprietor, Claudio Schuler, whose grandfather built the residence as the family villa in the early 20th century as well as founding the Schuler Hotel. Such a pleasant prospect might, in making one less forlorn, prove enough for many a seasoned traveler - Christain or pagan - in most vacation lodgings; just being in one of the ancient beauty spots of Sicily - Taormina. But, there is much more on offer. The interior of the apartment we had, Apt. B, was as comfortable as being at home, each with our own bedroom, double closet space in the companionway between, a roomy bath, and a very large living-dining- kitchen area, one with excellent counter areas for meal preparation. Immediately off the terrace, was a small washing machine room. Wifi in the living room and on the terrace was good, Skype connection included. Your host Claudio is a true gentleman who will answer all travel related questions and, living on the property, will quickly address any issue. The location is residential and as such is quiet. It is but a short walk and down to enter on a street of several restaurants and a very good small supermarkert. From there it is one block more to the entry way to the old part of the city with the Greco Roman amphitheater at the furthest end.

One last note: In counterpoint to another's negative evaluation of the host's deportment in "the hospitality stakes": My companion and I found Claudio to be a wonderful host, friendly and open to conversation if given an invitation. The guest has to take the initiative and demonstrate an openness to a further social contract, but should never be surprised - let alone feel rebuffed - if a host demurs. Besides attending to other pressing business, proprietors of guest houses must and should maintain a professional distance from the client, but when issued a suitable sociable invitation, most, I have found, respond. Claudio, in our experience, was no exception; he is a truly engaging and affable gentleman, and one who was scrupulously respectful of our privacy. We spent eight days here, and Claudio's residence is the first place I will consider for lodging if I should return to Taormina. I doubt I could locate a finer prospect or a finer host!

Room Tip: Apartment B if you are a couple, or if simply friends. There are two bedrooms.
