“Convenient Comfortable Clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Search no more! We have stayed in many very nice apartments and Residence Schuler is at the top.
The view is postcard perfect from a very private terrace. Large living room, 2 large baths, 1 queen bed and 1 king bed, well equipped kitchen, wi fi flat screen TV
The best is a short walk down stairs to the Corso Umberto. There is a grocery near by too. The owner is very helpful and has arranged for the apartment to be restful and complete. We had a wonderful stay.

We had apartment E, a 2 bedroom with 2 baths, very good and well equipped kitchen, good size living area and really nice balcony with furniture and a fabulous view to the sea and Mount Etna. It's a large apartment and of high quality with some nice antiques, well appointed & comfortable.
The owner, Claudio Schuler, met us and helped us drive and park then drove us back when we later returned our rental car - very considerate. He also was helpful with local information, maps etc.
There is some parking by the apartment but otherwise driving can be a challenge in the narrow streets of this hilltop town. We only had the car on arrival and then enjoyed walking for the rest of our stay. Be prepared for hills and steps though. Taormina is built on a hill side with a central town area about halfway up so if you want to be close to the lower area and beach you should plan accordingly.

Room Tip: I think all the apartments are good with similar views from balconies.

We had a great week here in Apartment C. Fantastic view from the balcony terrace over the Mediterranean and Mount Etna and only a 5 minute walk to the town centre. Claudio is a great host, so welcoming and helpful. The off-road parking was such a bonus as Taormina's narrow streets are a pain to park in. The main bedroom is gorgeous, with doors leading straight to the balcony. The smallest room got a little warm at night for the children but otherwise it was fantastic, so spacious and a great location.

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.
