Casa Aurora is a richly furnished apartment of 120 m2. The ample and bright living room has elegant sofas from Bali ad a vintage teak table. From here guests can access to the wide terrace which railing gives the impression to be on a boat. A stunning view at the harbour and at the sea complete the picture. Casa Aurora has also a courtyard with an outdoor shower very handy to use when returning from the beach, right in front of the house. All rooms have air conditioning and WiFi.
Two apartments with big sliding doors on the waterfront at the marina of the cute village Marina di Ragusa. The apartments distance 200 meters from a sandy beach and from the boulevard with restaurants, coffee bars and shops. The apartments are furnished with great taste.
Marina di Ragusa is in the south of Sicily. It is sunny also in the winter, and inhabited all year round. In the summer it is the most popular seaside destination of this part of Sicily.

The apartment was fantastic, at least as good as the photos. It was comfortable, spacious and equipped to a very high standard.
On arrival, we were greeted with a table full of local produce which was very welcome and fed us all for the day. The location, overlooking the harbour, was a perfect place to relax after a day on the beach or out sightseeing. There is a large deck furnished with comfortable loungers and a good size table. In the evening , when it cooled down, the glass windows still provided a great view
Highly recommended .
The owner was wonderful and the "snack" that was provided for our late check in was incredible. The apartment's location was superb, overlooking the Marina and included parking. We enjoyed the apartment immensely and can't wait to go back!
My wife and I have been traveling for over 20 years and most of our stays have been in rental apartments. We understand that there are times when you have to "roll with punches" because things just aren't perfect. Occasionally, everything is just right and that was the case with our stay in Marina di Ragusa.
Guenter was fantastic to work with and very helpful. He also brought us some incredible tomatoes and strawberries!
The apartment is beautifully located. There were days when we just sat on the balcony and watched the world go by. We didn't need to go anywhere, we were already there!
Just back from a week in Marina di Ragusa. We all loved the apartment. It was comfortable, furnished beautifully, had everything we needed and the views over the marina were magnificent. Communication from time of booking, through our late arrival and during our stay was fantastic. Thank you Guenter and Giorgio for helping us have an amazing holiday! We loved the tray of local food you provided - it was very kind of you.
The town itself was quiet as expected at this time of year and there were only a few bars and restaurents open. Despite this it was buzzing on Sunday afternoon when it seemed like everyone for miles around had come out for a walk in the sunshine. The Stella Marina bar, which was just a few metres away was quite lively on Tuesday and Friday with the International crowd from the marina, who were all very friendly. The local people were very friendly too. My daughter really appreciated getting to play with a baby in one restaurent we were in. It was full of locals and the baby was brought to visit everyone, while her mum got to eat in peace. People were all highly amused by the mad British wearing shorts and t-shirts, while they were all wrapped up in jumpers, coats, hats and scarves! One old lady stopped me in the street to insist the teenagers should have coats on. It was 15 -17°C and we all had caught the sun on the sheltered balcony. Not sure how they would cope with cold and windy UK.
We found plenty to do in the surrounding area, Ragusa and Scicli were beautiful and for Inspectore Montalbano fans it was easy to find all the film locations. I had not heard of it until after I had booked the holiday but would recommend watching a few episodes to see how beautiful the area is and of course bore the rest of the family who didn't get around to watching any. We also enjoyed the Archiological park in Syracusa and the sandwich shop Caseificio Borderi in Ortigia market is not to be missed but it is a slow drive so make a day of it.
All in all it was a fantastic winter break. We had good weather and stayed in a fabulous location without the crowds.
The website promises something special; the reality more than delivers. This is a stunning property in a prime location overlooking the modern harbour and only footsteps away from glorious, safe sandy beaches as well as little cafes, bars and shops lining the seafront promenade and Marina di Ragusa's heart - the main Piazza. Stay here and you will not be disappointed. The apartment is creatively designed and furnished to provide flexible living space with the "Wow!" factor. Enjoy the sunshine and al fresco dining on the beautiful balcony day or night; keep the doors wide open and relax around the dining table; spread out round the huge coffee table or take yourself through the astonishing wooden doorway into the privacy of the dayroom beyond. Stay with friends or family, have fun yet also find your own space. Ambience and views will more than keep you happy. The standard of cleanliness is top notch and everything a holidaymaker might want or need has been anticipated, even down to big beach towels. Room in the suitcase for more clothes/books next year then! Gunter's greeting, support and generous box of local produce are above and beyond. What is there to do? Try breakfast on the balcony and afterwards a stroll to the Piazza for shopping, maybe a coffee, cake or ice-cream or simply soak up the atmosphere and people-watch - the locals are friendly and engaging. Explore the little streets around the square, make your way back home, seek sun or shade - whatever you fancy - followed by a lazy lunch. Late afternoon is a perfect time to head to the beach. Marina di Ragusa is the favourite resort for families from Ragusa itself. They love to gather at the water's edge to sunbathe, chat and paddle. Not many foreign holidaymakers here and plenty of room for a swim or warm bath in September! Evening time, eat out if you will - there are lots of little restaurants to suit each pocket and taste - but nothing beats staying in, watching the comings and goings in the tiny Piazza Scala Trapanese below and along Via San Remo. Sunset over the Marina is to die for! Feel the pull of the main Piazza once more? Find a table, a drop of what you fancy then soak up the sociable Sicilian way of life. Further afield, easy and cheap bus rides take you to Punta Secca of Inspector Montalbano fame or for a full day try the hilltop town of Ragusa Ibla for stunning scenery, architecture and restaurants. More energetic? Water sports and bike hire are nearby. In short - super!
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Aurora in Marina di Ragusa. The apartment is furnished to a high specification, and includes everything that you might need, including air conditioning in every room for when the temperature rises (it was 34 degrees when we left at the end of July). Everything was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers were spacious and suitably powerful.
The outstanding feature of the apartment is its wonderful balcony which provides panoramic views of the marina. We spent many a happy hour sitting on the balcony reading, eating or watching the world go by. The balcony overlooks a square which can get quite busy at night but this in no way detracted from our experience. The evening is the busiest time of the day, with families promenading along the seafront and teenagers riding around on mopeds, and its fun to have a ring-side seat to witness Marina di Ragusa at night.
The location really could not be better when it comes to views, access to the beach and restaurants, plus there is a bakery and various supermarkets within reasonably easy walking distance (15 minutes), although when it gets hot any distance seems too far. There is a bike hire shop below the apartment so if you want to go further afield you can rent a bike for €15 for the day. There are cycle routes along the sea front in both directions.
Guenter was a very welcoming and thoughtful host. On first arriving at the apartment at 10.15pm it was a lovely surprise to find that he had provided us with some complementary local produce and a nice bottle of prosecco, so that we didn't have to worry about finding a shop on our first night.
We would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a relaxing and comfortable holiday by the coast.
