“Palermo, what a beautiful place - don't miss this charming accommodation in Mondello!”
Reviewed 23 November 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

A friend and I visited Palermo for a week during June (2017). Fantastic season - blue skies, sunny and hot, perfect beach weather! We were welcomed to the accommodation by the very lovely Nadia - the owner and her son Alessio who showed us around the house and recommended lots of things for us to do in Sicily - they had even given us some typical Sicilian pear juice and biscotti as a welcome treat! The house is very spacious, spotlessly clean and fully furnished, complete with kitchen and all utensils - not that we used them much as food in Palermo is so delicious!! The house is just a short distance from the picturesque coast (about 20min walk) and lots of cafes and restaurants around where we were able to try lots of typical Sicilian dishes! I definitely recommend Panelle (fried chickpea patty), brioche with gelato and pasta norma and pasta with sardines. We rented a car and were also able to drive to the city centre in about 15 minutes. We had a fantastic time in Palermo and would definitely recommend this beautiful city and fabulous accommodation to anyone wanting to visit!

Unfortunately, the barking dog was a family of tourists who had taken it despite the ban.
As soon as they left, the quiet is back!

“"Our Little Paradise"”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

On Thursday 31st March 2016 my family and I went to Palermo and stayed at this fantastic apartment. It was so nice to return to "our" wonderful little paradise, the Smile House. My husband Kim, our son Adriano and I were so thrilled and emotional to see Nadia again and to spend our holiday, for the second time, at her lovely property. On our arrival Nadia warmly greeted us with her remarkable and thoughtful manner. Nadia, being such a caring person, had baked some almond biscuits for Adriano and I must say....Nadia has great baking skills :-) :-) Her delicious biscuits were fully appreciated by the whole family :-) :-).
The apartment was yet again in an immaculate condition: clean, well equipped, newly decorated, welcoming and peaceful. Nadia is a perfect host: always very kind, helpful and cheerful.
We love staying at the Smile House. It feels like home to us and this is thanks to Nadia for having created a little paradise on hearth.
My family and I are planning to spend our summer holidays in Palermo and we will definitely be booking Nadia's accommodation again.
For the readers looking for a place to stay in Palermo, Nadia's place is strongly recommendable.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Nadia for all her kindness and generosity.
Nadia......WE WILL BE BACK!!! :-) :-) :-)
Alla prossima. Ciaooooooo!!! :-) :-)
Regards from us.

My family and I returned yesterday from Palermo where we spent our Easter holidays - We stayed at the 'Smile House' for 4 days - The Smile House is, in our opinion, a 'paradise on earth' :-) :-) The flat itself is absolutely magnificent, very clean and welcoming - It had all its comforts - The location is perfect - the accommodation is located in a residential complex of villas and it is very close to Mondello beach - Nadia, the owner of the flat, is a delightful, thoughtful, generous and very helpful person - She made us feel at home - She even made for my son who is 13 yrs old the traditional easter sicilian almond cake - I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful paradise to my friends, relatives and work colleagues - THANK YOU NADIA for having us and for making our holiday memorable and enjoyable - We will see you soon - Paola & Family

“Very nice house in Mondello”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013
4
people found this review helpful

Thanks for our very nice vacation in Mondello. At our arrival the house was perfectly clean and the interior was as good as expected by the description in the web. The free driving service from and to the airport was very comfortable, thanks again. The restaurant recommendations by the owner were absolutely helpful. Especially the restaurant Villa Antigone is very recommendable and located right next to the house.

As expected the beach is around 15 minutes walk away from the house, but it was ok as there is also a bus driving. The shopping centre of Mondello is about 10 minute bus ride away from the house, the bus to the centre of Palermo drives about 20 minutes from Mondello.

Overall this house is very recommendable and we had a nice vacation there.
