We had a great stay at Maurizio's place. The check in / out with Alessandro was great, and he couldn't have been more helpful.

We (a family of 5 including a grandpa) stayed at this house for a week. It is a large home, with plenty of space and two magnificent terraces with amazing views. The car parking is a plus. As others have mentioned, you have to be willing to walk a lot of stairs to go to and from town, or walk down and take a cab up. We had a rental and found our it was better to just drive to the Porta Catania parking and then visit the town. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are renovated and very nice. (keep in mind there are 3 bathrooms but only 2 showers, the other bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub). The A/C works well in every room but I should mention there is no A/C in the living room/dining room/kitchen which made it very hot in August. Other than July/August this should not be an issue as there are huge doors which open to a large terrace and we had dinner outside a few times. Alessandro welcomed us and he is an asset. All his recommendations were outstanding, from tours to restaurants to where to buy food. He made a huge difference on our trip and if you visit follow his recommendations and advice. He is also an amazing photographer. Taormina is a gorgeous city and this property is a great place to stay.

Wonderful apartment, over-equiped in a calm place close to the center (15 minutes walking), with easy parking. The presence of Alessandro, who welcomes warmly us, with a lot of recommendations and suggestions is very helpful. Our family has really enjoyed to stay in Taormina in a so beautiful and plaisant place. Benoit

The apartment was very good with big rooms. It was very clean in the inside and had a wonderfull panoramic view of Taormina, and the sea. The location is not as good as in the description, you cant go walking to the center of Taormina. The only way to get to the center is by a vehicule. Also the entrance to the department was very dirty and very dark without any lights, it was a very bad first impression. Finally Alsessandro was extremly helpfull in all senses to have a nice stay in Taormina, he went out of his way to share very good tips about the city. Alessandro was a wonderfull host!

Response from Maurizio:
Thanks for your review. I've read some inconsistencies in your comment. What is clear you did not read well our description and comments of the other guests. You definitely do not like walking and you are not in the spirit of Airbnb.

Our stay at Maurizio's apartment was fantastic. The porch views cannot be beaten and the rooms are all very comfortable and well-apportioned. Alessandro was very helpful to us during our stay. He gave us a lot of information at check-in, and helped make reservations for us throughout our stay. He communicated often and was eager to give us the best stay possible. We would happily stay here again.

We really loved spending few days at Maurizio's place. Alessandro was a wonderful host providing all support we needed for a wonderful vacation, including restaurant and activities suggestions. We really appreciated all the help and care with our family and friends. Thanks again!
