Wir (7 Personen, 4 Erw. + 3 Kinder) hatten eine tolle Zeit in Esmeralda´s und Marco´s Wohnung. Marco ist ein sehr guter Gastgeber gewesen, der uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stand. Die Wohnung war für uns groß genug und auch sehr gut ausgestattet. Gerne wieder und an dieser Stelle nochmals ein herzliches Danke an Marco+Esmeralda.
Merci à Marco et Esméralda pour leurs gentillesses et attention.
L'appartement correspondait bien à la description et était idéalement placé entre mer et Etna ainsi que pour nos visites vers Taormina, l'Etna, Siracuse et bien d'autres endroits qu'ils nous ont indiqué .
Nous étions trois couples et avons tous apprécie cette maison au milieu d'orangers et citronniers ( avec des fruits excellent ). Confortable, spacieux et bien équipé pour recevoir bien plus de monde. avec un rapport qualité prix exceptionnel !!!
Encore merci à vous deux.
We had a great stay at Isula, made even better by Marco, who handled all of the arrangements of getting into the apartment and much more. We've stayed in about 50+ apartments as our family travels Europe together, and rarely have we met a host who is willing to do so much to give us a true "local" experience and help out. Before we even met, Marco noticed from our profile that we were members of a church that had a church group in the area, and put us in touch with some of his friends at the same church in Catania, to have dinner at their home. The experience was wonderful, and we had a fantastic time eating real Sicilian food in a real Sicilian home with a wonderful very big Sicilian family and making friends that we will always remember.
On our way driving down to Sicily in our rental car, we'd also sliced a tire on a backroad up in Calabria, so we were driving on our spare when we reached the apartment. Marco was wonderful in finding us a place to get a used tire (saving us $100+ on a new tire) and taking us to the tire shop to get it changed over. We would never have been able to do that alone! Marco had offered to show us around Catania when we arrived, and took the opportunity after changing the tire to walk us around the AMAZING Catanian fish and vegetable market, then took us to a grilled horsemeat shop where we had incredibly good horsemeat steaks, grilled and eaten out in the open (and we NEVER would have thought I'd eat or like horsemeat!), and helped us to try a bunch of different local drinks and pastries we'd never have know about. We loved the Catanian leg of our trip, and Marco really added a local dimension we'd have totally missed out on if not for having booked one of his apartments!
The apartment itself worked great for us. The location is perfect for making day trips to Catania, Taormina, Siracuse and Mt. Etna, all within easy driving distance. We had thought about staying right in Catania, and are very glad we didn't. This location was perfect. The house is large as others have described, well-equipped, and while we didn't spend much time there as we were out exploring all the time, it had plenty of room for the six of us and convenient parking out front for a large 8-seater van (although streets are narrow as they are all over - just expect that anywhere you go in Sicily). We've seen a lot of Europe after 13 months of travel, and Catania and the surrounding area has been one of our favorites. Sicily is a whole different world of its own, and a great one at that!:)
Great villa! We enjoyed every minute of our stay
L'appartement est très vaste et lumineux (nous étions en hiver).
Merci Marco de nous avoir dépanne en gaz Le jour de Noël.
Our stay was fantastic. First, we have a Tesla electric car and Esmeralda was so kind to have installed a red 5 pin plug for us to recharge. So any other electric car drivers that need a charge in Sicily, this is the place to stay!
There's amazing views of Mt Etna and the sea. Can't ask for more than that. In the morning we were surprised with more wood for the fireplace, eggs from the chicken coup and fresh oranges from the orange grove outside.
All in all a fantastic stay and the most welcoming of hosts.
Truly awesome place, exceeded our expectation - from the private beach, boats to take out to wonderful November weather. This place is amazing.
It was the end of the season and we wanted some last minute sun. Esmeralda's place was perfect. It was exactly as described. We had a great 10 days there even though we did get rain for two of them.
It is amazing apartment near very warm sea. Owner Marco is very hospitable, kind and cheerful. Aparment is very spacious and cozy. Foto on Airbnb is exactly match with reality. Sea is in 1 minut walking. In 3 minuts walking is a lot of small restorants on the beach, where cook very tasty seafood, which right now catch from this sea. If you want have serene, comfotable and unforgettable vacantion - I recommend you this appartment.
Это удивительная квартира находится в тихом районе недалеко от Катании. Владелец Марко очень гостеприимный, добрый и веселый. Квартира очень просторная и уютная. Фото на Airbnb точно соответствовать действительности. Море находится в 1 минуте ходьбы. В 3 минутах ходьбы много небольших ресторанов на пляже, где готовят очень вкусные морепродукты, которые только что поймали в море. Если вы хотите провести спокойный, комфортный и незабываемый отдых - я рекомендую вам эту квартиру.
The flat was a beautiful and relaxing place that suited us perfectly for our final cycling leg of Italy (we, 5 guy traveled from Milan). The flat had our cleanest sheets in Italy!!
On arrival the host was kind and welcoming.
Extra merit, must be mentioned as we were running a few hours late due to a issue on the road, he waited for us without any complaints. thank you again.
would definitely stay again, would definitely bring my family!!!
