Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic Stay
As always, a fantastic stay! Paola was very welcoming, and it was great to see her after the disruption caused by the Covid pandemic. A nice selection of food and drinks had been left as a starter, there's a small supermarket about 10 minutes away for when you need to stock up. There's also plenty of restaurants within a short distance's walk along with some great takeaway options. Some of the taller trees in front of the apartment have been cut back giving you even better views than before of the sea and Mount Etna which happened to be erupting whilst we were there giving some spectacular sights at night. We had a wonderful relaxing stay and no doubt will be back soon.

Wonderful stay!
Paola is the perfect host. She welcomed us very nicely and took the time to explain us the best way to explore Taormina (visits, restaurants...). The apartment was beautiful and squeeky clean, the web pictures totally reflect reality. Its views are breathtaking and it is close to everything (supermarket, parking...). We had a very good and relaxing stay. I am recommending this place without any reservations what so ever.

Fabulous Place to stay in Taormina
This is an amazing property. Its an old family home set in the side of a cliff. There are views of the ocean below you and Mount Etna from the side windows. It has a marvelous balcony for sipping wine and snacks and enjoying the hillsides. The owners are very friendly and helpful providing a map with all the things to see and restaurants to try, etc. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a great place to stay in Taormina

Couldn’t have been better......beautiful location, fabulous ambiance and gracious hostess.
Perfect setting, we’d get up every morning to check if Mt Etna was blowing or if a cruise ship was in. We. Had a welcoming bottle of wine in the fridge and Paola was there to greet us, help us with our bags. She gave us a map and pointed out places to see and places to eat. When one of the girls got sick,she helped us get a Dr. and medicine. The home is impeccable, comfortable and charming with a lovely patio. I couldn’t have asked for a better stay. I rented the casa with Jane.

Absolutely the best!
I was very fortunate to have booked Casa Costa for eight days. The apartment is in the best location in Taormina. The views from the terrace are breath taking and you are in walking distance to great restaurants and major attractions. Paola, the owner, provides all the amenities of home. The apartment has been renovated with modern appliances, comfortable furnishings and essential foods to get you started. The feature which I cannot emphasize enough is Paola's availability and kindness. Unfortunately, someone in our party became quite ill and I was at a lost of what to do. Paola arranged for a doctor to come to the apartment, stayed at the apartment until 10 p.m. to translate and give support. The next morning she picked up the prescription so we could go on a scheduled Etna tour. I cannot thank her enough for the kindness, hospitality and the sharing of her lovely apartment.

The Best!
Where do I start to review this wonderful property and the owner. I would say this is one of the best rentals in town. So comfortable and clean and Paola, the owner was so obliging and helpful in every way. The "welcome" food, wine and water she left for us was so generous and she also had an abundance of toiletries in both bathrooms. Air-conditioning worked very well and we enjoyed early breakfasts on the terrace most mornings. Also, just below the terrace in the next street is Da Lorenzo restaurant which I can highly recommend. We loved our week stay and we didnt want to leave! We will be back some day Paola. Many thanks once again.

Fantastic apartment i Taormina
My husband and I and 2 friends recently spend 6 days at Casa Costa. It was wonderful. First of all our hostess, Paula, went out of her way to make us comfortable, help us plan, sort parking, reccommended restaurants etc.. She had made sure we were catered for upon arrival. In the fridge was yughurt, milk, cheese, butter jam, coffee and bread for breakfast and it even had ingredients to cater for a simple pasta meal in an emergency - not to mention a bottle of wine. . It is only a short walk to a smal supermarket with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, a delicatessen disk with meats and cheeses and most of the things we needed. The apartment itself is incredibly central - only 100 m walk to the Corso Umberto and Porta Catania - and yet it was quiet and had fabulous views. It is clean and tidy. We could see the ocean and through the trees, Mt Etna. We only had to go to the end of the deck and a few steps up to get the full view of the moutain. The apartment has a large and a smaller bedroom, both equipped with good king sized beds. There are 2 full bathrooms - one with bath, one with shower. One even has a washing machine and soap available. The living room is small but comfortable. There is a dining table with 6 chairs, a sofa and a softer chair. It also has a large tv. The kitchen is compact and contains everythng we needed - and more. 4 burner gass stove, oven, micro, dishwasher, toaster, italian coffee pots...There were plenty of pots and pans, plates, cutlerey glasses etc. The best place must be the terrasse where we spent most of our time. Large table and chairs and 2 sunbeds - and umbrellas. We had worried about parking, but Paula guided us to the parking house Porta Catania. Here you can park for short or long term. We had just taken a ticket, but Paula walked with us to the warden to get it exchanged for a multi use pass which was cheaper.. You just take the lift to the 7th floor and you walk straight out on the roof - which is a "piazza" in itself and then 200 m to Casa Costa. Getting on and off the motorway is a bit of a mission - and a long drive. If you are not planning to go for long drives, I would reccommend not taking a car at all. There are busses to many places from the terminal i Taromina - about a 20-25 minutes walk from Casa Costa. There are regular busses to and from the airport - I think it said 7 Euro pp. There are busses to nearby towns and cities and the public transport is definately more fun than driving the narrow streets yourself ;-) Don't forget to take the bus to the village at top of the mountain, Castel Mola. For 3 Euro return you get a strunning drive and views from the cosy village. Don't go to Taormina for the beaches - we were unimpressed. They are best at a distance :-). The food is great and Paula had many good recommendations - Just ask her! Da Lorenzo just below the flat is very nice, not too expensive and you get a discount when you mention you stay at Casa Paula. If I ever come back to Taormina, I hope I can stay at Casa Costa again.

Perfect place to stay and explore
Can't recommend this place enough. We stayed here for a week at the end of April 19 in the two bed apartment. It's located one minute from one of the main piazzas in Taormina in a quiet side road, but sitting on the terrace with a view of the sea and overlooking Etna, it's so peaceful you'd be mistaken for thinking you were miles from the hustle and bustle. The apartment is big and spacious with two bathrooms ( great for us and our two kids ), and it's well finished with all the necessary goods required for our stay, even good Wifi and Sky TV! The vendor Paola and her husband are both lovely and very helpful. They left us lots of food essentials in the kitchen along with some good italian coffee and even gave the kids an Easter present which I thought was a lovely, thoughtful touch. Lots of good recommendations from them ( Ram bar for the granita being a particular favourite ), and even came and assisted with sorting the car parking for a week pass in porta Catania multi-storey - essential if you have a hire car. If we plan to come back to Sicily, we won't hesitate to book this place again. Thanks for a lovely stay.
