The apartment is comfortable and close to the sea and the cable-car to Taormina.
Jane is a very nice attentive host.

“Wonderful stay with a great view”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A great location within Taormina. The view from the balcony is one of the most stunning in town. The steps leading up to the town centre are steep and hard work in the scorching sun but completely worth it for some spectacular views. The cable car is nearby and only €3 a trip. The apartment was comfortable, clean and with good facilities. Perfect for a short stay.

“Well appointed appartment with stunning views”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We (four adults) stayed in the apartment Isola Bella in early June for a week. The apartment is very comfortable with all the amenities in the description. It has a stunning view of the island Isola Bella and is a short walk down steps to the beach. The town of Taormina which, although full of tourists, retains much of its charm and is further up on the hillside. The steps run outside the apartment and it is probably a twenty minute climb up approx. 450 steps. Ok for once or twice but not a regular daily hike. It is much better to have a car (small - as streets in Sicily can be narrow) and the apartment has access to a nearby car park which is free to the apartment. The location acts as a good base for exploring the East of Sicily especially Etna and the surroundings. Thoroughly recommended.

“Excellent apartment and location”
Reviewed 23 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in Jane's apartment for a week in February 2013. The apartment is spotless and very nicely decorated with taste and with all necessary for living comfortably. The view from the flat is splendid, you cannot ask for more..Jane has gone out of her way to be helpful and make our stay as nice as possible. We loved everything from the walk to Taormina using the steps to the nice beaches, shops in town, friendly restaurants and of course the lack of crowds at this time of the year. This apartment is highly recommended.
