Fabio and his mother were excellent hosts and spent time to explain everything to us. The house is within walking distance from the beach and a small cafe/bar. It is also within a short driving distance to many restaurants and 6kms from the Catania airport. The beach is wide and sandy and very clean. The area is very family friendly and though we had no children with us there were accommodations in the house for children such as toys and child size furniture. From the hosue we were able to drive to other historic areas around Catania without a problem Overall we had a very enjoyable stay.
Rosita was flexible w/ arrival time (she lives in building) and addressed our initial questions promptly; perhaps because we arrived early, some fairly important items were missing, such as bath mat, dish rack & dish towels, sheets/pillowcases for sofa bed. I'm sure she would have provided them had we asked, but we returned to flat late at night and didn't want to bother her again. Property is just a couple blocks off Garibaldi which leads directly to Duomo and city center (10 min. walk). Though it's not in an upscale neighborhood by any means, it was clean and comfortable and my friend and I felt perfectly safe. Small bath, w nice jetted shower. A reading lamp beside sofa would be a nice addition.
