The host and the place was great! The host Rosario is the best you can imagine. Very helpful, nice, and if you travel with kids, it is good to have someone local like him who can help in case of any problems (health or whatever). He also messages you when there is something interesting happening around (he told us about the carnival taking place in nearby town). The place is just like in the pictures. It is situated in quite location very close to beach, there is beautiful garden with orange and lemon trees, lots of toys for children. Kitchen is equipped with everything just like at home. All in all, very recommended!
Perfect house for a family with small children. Big well-kept yard that has plenty of playing opportunities for kids. Responsive and welcoming host that helped organizing a nice boat trip. Recommended!
Lovely garden apartment, well maintained and had all the essentials. Tastefully decorated and very clean. There was plenty of space for our small family. The location is convenient to the beach and much other.
We had a very nice stay at Casa Michelangela. The house is very well equiped. It is especially suited when you stay with children. We stayed with two children from 2 and 3 years old. The baby bed was installed at our arrival, as well as two chairs for children. The garden is definately a plus: clean, well maintained, fenced and it foresees many toys (slide, hammock, playhouse, beach toys,...)
The beach is at 200m of the house. The town as such is not the most beautiful one, but there are nice places in the east of Sicilia: Taormina, Siracusa, Etna, .... You definately need a car to get to the house, to go to the supermarket and touristic places.
Rosario and his wife are very warm people. They waited for us when we arrived very late at night. They had already foreseen food and drinks for the next morning. Rosario seemed sincerly concerned about the well-being of his guests. They provided plenty and detailed information of the touristic places and ‘things to do’ with children.
When we arrived at Casa Michelangela, Rosario and Mariella were waiting for us, despite it was late in the night. Having two kids we chose for this apartment because of the private garden around it, where they could play. And I loved the plants and flowers in the garden, very colorful. The house was big enough for the four of us; it was simple but had all we needed. The house is located in a residential area, quite a walk from the beach, so renting it was a good choice.
