From the very beginning the owner and his assistant responded promptly and professionally. While a bit worn (paint-wise), the property is as it appears in the photos, and very clean. The kitchen is small and has the basics, but if you plan to cook, the pots and pans are older and not in the best shape. There is a small toaster, microwave, 4-burner stove and refrigerator/freezer that all function well. You'll need to bring all food / beverages, though there is a small amount of coffee, tea, sugar available. I suggest you stop at the market on your way (large ones available in Giardini Naxos or Catania, only small ones ((but well-stocked)) in Taormina). The condo has grocery carts near the garage (which is a very secure, conveneient, clean location). In warm months, eating outside would be delightful, as the quite large terrace with full table and separate seating area are perfect for outside living with comfortable, solid furniture. Like much Italian furniture, we did not find the living room furniture comfortable...awkward, too low. Master BR has good space and good mattress. 2nd BR has two smallish single beds, but they are comfortable. Bathrooms are large, clean and function well. Plenty of hot water. Real towels are provided, but bring washcloths if you need them. The condo is a 5-min walk from a lovely square and Porta Messina. Nice restaurants, shops are easily accessible. Great value for money, spectacular, unobstructed view. I will try to stay here again!
