Vik has thought of everything you might want to have in an apartment when you are on the road. For example. Not only was there a washing machine, there was laundry soap so you could do a load and not have to go to the minimart to buy soap. Three matching towels for each quest. Cooking supplies. Lots of quilts, a good set of pots and pans. We were really pleased with the thoughtfulness of the host. The location is excellent. Vik is easy to communicate with and always happy to answer questions. We were really happy with out stay.

Vik was really helpful and really quick in all communications. We had a great time in Siracusa - the flat is in a fantastic location, super close to all the local monuments, restaurants and shops.

We had a great stay at Vik's place in Ortigia. The apartment is superbly located (easy to get to from mainland Syracuse, and then easy to get to all the sites we visited on foot), on a small street in a safe neighbourhood. Unfortunately, we were never able to sleep much past 7am, when the street wakes up and we would hear workmen doing construction across the alley (less than 20m away from our room), motos racing down the alley and (adorable) cats crying for food. Not a deal-breaker but important to note if sleeping in is on your holiday itinerary. Nonetheless, the value for price is very good and we were very comfortable here.

It was very nice experience in Vik's Place. Lovely apartment, Cosy, and comfortable. We stayed there 3 Days. And I must admit we would have preffered if it was 1-2 weeks. Syracuse is a beutiful city especially Ortigia. with buildings dating back to the Greek Era from 2700 years ago. Which for me is fascinating. Keep up the good work.
