Lara's flat in Giardini Naxos was very much as it is described and I had a mostly comfortable stay. I found that the place was missing some of the basics (dish and hand soap for example) and, as noted, its a climb every time you get back to it. We had a bit of difficulty finding the flat as the address just provides the street and had to wait 15 min when we got there even though we had been in touch with the host as requested. I've stayed in dozens of AirBNBs and am a host myself, but this is the first AirBNB stay for which I cannot leave a positive review. The biggest concern I had was with the WiFi. The Internet was not working at all the first night we arrived, which made it difficult to organize myself as I planned. Laura fixed the issue, but it became unusable a day later and in total only worked during about 30% of our stay. When it did work, it was still very slow (apparently this is normal) and we were told that we were only entitled to use it 3 hours per day (which is not mentioned in the listing). Laura wasn't terribly helpful or sympathetic with these issues.

We were disappointed about the accomodation. It was very humid due to the lot of rain. There was normal bed and two sleeping couches. In one sleepingroom you can't stand. We move out due to the humidity and book a hotel in Taormina. Laura accepted it immediately and promise us to gave our money back. So the communication was ok.

Response from Laura:
Unfortunately I couldn't host Eelze due a problem caused to our roof by the extremely heavy rain showers this winter in Sicily. As soon as the weather seemed to improve we entrusted to a local painter the resolution of these problems before the arrival of Eelze. But the persistent wet weather, with another thunderstorm exactly the day before the arrival of the guests didn't allow the paint to dry causing the resurfacing of the problem. I'm really sorry for this unlucky event and I asked Eelze to accept the refund of the payment. About the other considerations I have to say that the apartment is exactly described and photographed in Airbnb. I'm really sorry for what occurred.

The unit was clean and in a good location--maybe 100 mt from the beach. It has one large bedroom with a double bed, a smaller room (with slanted roof) with pull out sofa and a pull-out in the living room. Air conditioners are in the larger bedroom and the living room. The kitchen consists of a sink, cooktop and small under counter refrigerator. It has a beautiful large terrace with views of the sea and Taormina. The unit does not have potable water which apparently is common in Sicily. The problem with this unit is that it is on the fifth floor--so it is not for the unfit as there is no elevator. Also you must pay extra for sheets and towels.

We were family of 5 adults. Apartment is very nice located and minutes from the sea. There are two double beds (one sofa) and one sofa which is double but can be used as single bed only. The two air conditions are fine for two rooms. The third room is not AC. The roof terrace is great with very nice view. Hot water container is small and sufficient for max 2-3 showers so the next person should wait at list 15 minutes. The kitchen is small but contains all needed equipment / gear including Microwave, oven, coffee machine, small refrigerator, etc. The apartment delivered clean and all explained by the house-hold staff. I would recommend it for less than 5 adults. The issues we raised upon check-in about more toilette paper was resolved but still we left with three double blankets. Apartment is beautifully decorated.

Laura's apartment was absolutely beautiful! Enough space for at least six or seven people and very well decorated. The rooftop terrace is by far the best view I've seen ever and it was so great to just sit up there. There was no hot or drink-able water but the stay was totally worth it! Having a beach just down the road was great, too! I highly recommend staying here!

Nice clean, modern apartment in a somewhat dingy building. The views of Mt Etna from the terrace are exquisite. But you'll be winded hustling up eight flights of steps to the top floor (no elevator). The kitchen really isn't set up for cooking, the water is non-potable and bring your own toilet paper as just one roll is allotted by the out-of-country owner, even for a one-week stay

Nous avons passé de très belles vacances et l'appartement était bien , le coin cuisine est petit, pas possible d'être à deux, l'appartement était propre et calme. Les 4 étages permettent de garder la forme. Il manque un peu de lumière dans le salon. La vue sur la terrasse est magnifique Taormina , l'etna et mer . A coté de l'appartement y a un restaurant sympa et une supérette et un tabac en revanche pas de point pour retirer de l'argent. Pour les poubelles, c'est compliqué car les éboueur ne passent pas la rue donc on les déposait dans des poubelles au centre de Giardini naxos. Dans la chambre il y a un bac afin de récupérer l'eau du climatiseur du salon pas très pratique et on entend les gouttes d'eau dans la nuit. ll y a un parking pour la voiture.
