“Great view, very convenient”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Parking by Residence Schuler and driving in the neighborhood are very challenging, character-building; quite a worth-while skills-development exercise. But a smaller car than the big BMW we had would be preferable. The apartment and its accouterments could use some updating and upscaling for the price, although over-all space and kitchen items were ample. Wifi is unacceptable; works only on or near the balcony. Owner Claudio is always very helpful.

Liked best: The view, and walking access to a market and to central Taormina (albeit by many stairs)
Liked least: Rated it good value for money, but wifi is quite annoying: sign in each and every time anew, and only works on or near balcony

“Gorgeous apartment, spectacular view! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I were travelling with another couple, so we booked Claudio's two bedroom unit -- very spacious for two couples and the beautiful balcony is just as shown in the on-line photos. The weather was wonderful during our 3 day stay, so we had an outstanding view of Etna from our terrace every day. Taormina is a great town -- with (mostly) easy walking in the central district. It is not an easy town to navigate/drive in by car, so we opted to keep the car parked and we walked or used taxis and tour buses. Claudio was very helpful and true to his word -- that is, he said if we got lost finding his place, to call and he would meet us and guide us in. And we definitely needed the help! Etna is just a tour bus away and beaches are accessible by taxi or local bus. Thank you, Claudio, for all your help!

“well situated with great views and quiet”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were courteously welcomed by Claudio Schuler and the apartment was spacious,clean and tidy; the air conditioning worked well , although there is only a unit in the lounge area.
Its situation was good with a short walk down a few steps to the supermarket and the main pedestrianised street in Taormina.
We got good deals from him for the beach at Mazzeo, which cost 10 euros for brolly, lounger and transport.
He also helped with the luggage on our departure.
Overall, thoroughly recommended.

“Best in Taormina”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was our second stay at Residence Schuler, the first in March 2013 in Apt. B and this time in the two bedroom, two bath Apartment D. Like the apartment of the year before, Apartment D was spacious and everything in perfect working order. The views from our balcony of the Ionian Sea and Mt Etna spectacular as always, and Claudio as ever his gracious and helpful self. We spent 11 days, the first 9 utterly blissful! On the tenth, my companion suffered a medical emergency, and Claudio responded immediately, driving us to the emergency hospital service in Giardini- Naxos where he waited with me for several hours while my partner received the needful medical attention, after which he drove us back to the apartment. The next morning he called and stopped by the apartment to see if all was now well and to determine if we required any further assistance. Claudio Schuler is a gem, a diamond in our estimation. When we are back in Taormina, we will be booking an apartment with him at Residence Schuler!

“A perfect apartment for a week's stay in Taormina.”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I booked our apartment several months out, and was informed by Claudio he did not need a credit card to confirm reservation. He asked that if I canceled my plans I would let him know. When we met Claudio, he provided a detailed walk through of our apartment and told us he was available for anything at any time. The location of his residence is high on the hill and provides breath taking views of the sea and Mt. Etna from the very large patio outside our room. We were fortunate to be the only ones there that week and enjoyed this extra to ourselves and our friends who stayed nearby. The apartment lacked nothing and Claudio asked us each day if everything was fine. Felt the price was excellent as well. Would stay again in a heartbeat if we return to Taormina.

“Great condo in Taormina”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Herr Schuler’s condo in May for 5 nights. Wonderful place. Waking up to the view of the bay and Etna quietly smoking – fantastic. The place is close to the supermarket and restaurants and Taormina’s main (only) street. Walking there is easy – down the steps and down the steep hill. Walking back up after some vino is more challenging. If you are driving there, then you should be Italian. No other nationality could deal with these streets and corners. The road up from the highway is 7 minutes of pure (yoyful) amazement. Herr Schuler also organized the airport trips for us. Highly recommended.
