“Smelly!”
Reviewed 20 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Very difficult to locate due to insufficient info from owner even with Sat Nav, ...Owner did come and find us..Electric gate to enter premises.Fantastic location and views but next to a railway line (not mentioned in blurb) which run til 11 pm and started at 5 am !!
Nasty sewage smell pervaded the premises and thought to be coming from AC.Owner was telephoned but did not get back to us at all.Spent sleepless night after turning AC off half way through. Smell improved after switching off AC.

Dear Paul ,
i'm very sorry to read this bad review from you , it was unexpected because I was thiking you were happy with the apartment.
We are in the center of Taormina Mazzarò,in front of IsolaBella , the main beach of Taormina,considered one of the best spot in Taormina.
You didn't find the place and decide to stop almost in Giardini Naxos,another city,totally wrong place,I came with my car to meet you there,I was hoping it was kind and a welcome thing,unfortunately it doesn't seems from your review,it seems that was my mistake that you didn't find our apartment,but it was yours.
The railway line in Taormina was built in the coast(not always in Taormina ,also in adjacent cities like Letojanni etc),it's typical,just one track.We have special and double windows that make the train noise almost null.I'm sorry you did not notice that while being in the center, we are far from the noises and annoyances of the highway,you can't hear the traffic/cars.Having an almost surreal silence, I think that the passage of the train makes more sense.
You called me the last night of your stay and advised me about this strange smell, it was from the town ,not from the apartment,so it was normal that if you turn on the AC the air comes direcly from outside to inside,but that was , strangely,from the town not from us and , as you told me on the phone , happened only the last day,you said that was not a problem,now it seems like it was one,but i'm upset to hear that i didn't get back,because i prontly answered and explained it to you.
I'm very sorry for this review,really,but i'd like to say anyway thank you for your stay in Taormina.
Kind regards
Emanuele

This apartment has the best view of Isola Bella and the beach is just 2 minutes walk away. For those wanting beach clubs there were 2 to choose from to book your lounge for the day. The fanicular is 5 minutes away so getting to the restaurants at the top of Taormina was easy.

“Beautiful apartment in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment was pefect for the 4 of us. Its ideally located above Isola Bella, with easy access to the beach. Its only a few minutes walk to the aerial tram, which is a fantastic way to go up to downtown Taormina in just a few minutes. Although parking at the apartment is very easy, there's no need for a car because everything you need for a great stay is easily accessible, and driving and parking in Taormina is otherwise very difficult.

The apartment has all the amenities you need and is very comfortable. The furnishings are new and everything is very clean. While the railroad tracks are right below the apartment, the trains are infrequent and fairly quiet, and never disturbed our sleep. Emanuele, the manager is very friendly and accessible.

It was a great place to live for 5 days. We loved every minute of it.

“Amazing view and ideal to enjoy the most beautiful beach of sicilia”
Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

We came there in may which is a great period because it is not too hot and there were not too many tourists at that time and we had a great stay in this place which is ideally located if you want to be close to the most beautiful beach of taormina ! You can walk down 20 stairs and you are on it. Moreover if you want to visit taormina, you can find the cabin that gets you up there at only 15 min walking distance and the city is clearly worth it !

Regarding the location it was exactly as you can see on the pictures, nice and clean.

I would recommend it to my friends with not any doubt !

“Luxury and serenity by the sea. Bellisimo!”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The apt.at Isola Bella has a perfect location. It is only a flight of stairs from the beach and a short walk to the cable car. It is a short ride by car up to the main st Corso Umberto, in Toarmina. There are a lot of resturant to choose from along there. Personal favorites are Malvasia and Granduca. There is a grocery store, Deco, a short car ride to the south. The autostrada is also very close. We used the apt as a base to explore the valley of the temples, and Sacco where The Godfather was filmed, as well as Siracusa,and many others. The airport in Catania is less than an hour away.
The apt. Is clean and neat and very comfortable. It is exactly as described or better. The view is unbelievably beautiful. We stayed for an entire month and found everything we needed. One of the two bedrooms has 2 twin beds which were made up as a double but could be used as twins. The other bedroom is a double and has a connected bath. The two baths are very similar. Only one is pictured. The two sofas in the living area are both sleepers. There is easy parking in front of the apt. This is a gated community of only 12 units.
The most important part, for me, is the owner, Emanuele. He is responsive, honest, and very helpful. I would stay here again,and have recommended the place to all my
friends.

Isola Bella beach literally in front of the apartment. The service was impeccable - we arrived earlier than planned and we were met to access the property early. We left our car keys and they found and posted them. Would def' go back - clean and modern apartment - best location in Sicily. Thank you
