My wife and I stayed for a week at this apartment. It is everything as described in the advertisement and more. Anna was the main communication for renting the apartment and was friendly, helpful, and professional. Alessandro picked us up at the bus station and drove us to the apartment. A bowl of fruit, pastries and bottle of wine made for a warm welcome. They provided written instructions on how to use appliances and an overall orientation to the complex. As described the apartment is in a secure gated complex, that is beautifully lit in the evening with lush plantings. All items needed for sleeping, cooking and living are provided including coffee and bottled water. We bought an ice cube tray, but only because we overlooked to the two that were in the freezer. This is a high quality condominium with great views, space and features. Taormina speaks for itself in terms of beauty. Would return and stay again.
