Amazing hosts

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed here for two weeks with my family. It is very rare to find people so willing and helpfull to make your holiday special but you will find them at Orange Park. Stefania, Guiseppe and co are wonderful hosts who really made our stay special. We had the large Fichi D'India villa which had everything we needed, it was cleaned every day with heaps of fresh white fluffy towels to hand. The villa has two air conditioned bedrooms and whilst the systems were old they worked very well. The pool is not heated but believe me in the 36deg heat that was most welcome, there is also a shower at the pool and it was great watching the planes come in whilst sunbathing, they were never obtrusive. Yes you are very close to a huge Mall but for us this was very convenient, the lunches were incredible value very tasty, also great to pick up a rotisserie chicken or pizza at the end of a days travelling. Or some Italian fashions.

A wonderful family-friendly place to stay!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at Orange Park with my wife and several small children for 4 weeks while working at the nearby Navy Base. We stayed in a 3 bed/2 bath rental, and we absolutely loved our stay. The owners and Stefania were all very kind to all of us--particularly our young children. There was lots of room for them to run around, toys, a playground, and all the oranges we could eat. Stefania was wonderful in helping us figure everything out for tourist activities, was very accommodating in how we paid for the rental, and even helped when we got lost looking for a store one evening. The catering of dinners was great in that they had lots of variety and did well in trying to provide more kid-friendly meals. The owner Giuseppe even provided several treats and meals he and his wife prepared that were fantastic! Our favorite part of staying there was definitely the interaction with the owners and Stefania. My kids were more homesick when we left Orange Park than when we left the states! I would absolutely stay here again

Fantastic family get away!

  • 5 out of 5
We stumbled upon this gem through the VRBO website and right from my first enquiry Stefania answered every query/question I had very promptly and professionally. She is an invaluable resource of information on any aspect of touring/sightseeing and anything we asked of her while on holidays was dealt with quickly and efficiently.
On arrival at Catania airport Stefania had arranged for a taxi to pick us up and bring us to a nearby shopping mall and then directly to Orange park. We arrived at our country retreat and immediately we were shown to our spotlessly villa by Upitise. We availed immediately of the superb pool and then enjoyed a wonderful dinner cooked on site! We hadn't hired a car and Guiseppi very kindly dropped us to Catania one afternoon and took my husband grocery shopping another day. His kindness and also that of his wife is remarkable. He cooked a traditional Sicilian meal for us one day and his wife continually invited my daughters (3&6) to take from her store of toys!!

Our villa was very comfortable and had 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It also had a very large table outside and a little outdoor play area about 20 metres from the back door. There was a laundry room and clothes line also next to our villa. It was cleaned almost daily and linen & towels very frequently changed.

Overall we had a wonderful holiday relaxing in total seclusion by the pool and going for a stroll to the nearby shopping centre in the evenings. My daughters loved how quiet the pool was-some days we were the only people there. We arranged a car and driver to take us on the Godfather tour and also to the beach and Etna-all within an hours drive. On hindsight we should have hired a car but the driver made the touring very relaxing!

We will look back on our 2 weeks in Orange park fondly and we miss the kindness & warmth of all who live & work there,
M

Not what it seems.

  • 1 out of 5
Arrived late in the evening here. Was very difficult to find.
Thought we had the wrong address, because it was not at all like what you see from this website.
Garbage strewn streets lead to the property and when you look at the view through your window, you see the parking lot of a huge mall with high tension power lines.
Bathrooms were marginally clean and there was a leak in the kitchen roof with mold growing from it.
Hot tub was dry and not working.....Bad experience.
Stayed for only one night there.
Would not recommend.
Definitely not what you are expecting from the pictures and description. This is not a country location.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest,
we are sorry that our place was not of your liking.
We respect your personal opinion but in order to supply correct and complete information we care to give some more clarifications.
The presence of a shopping mall close by our residence has been clearly communicated to you in the e-mail sent on 8th March and then repited at the phone during your conversation with the secretary. Moreover, the proximity to the shopping mall has been considered a positive point of their stay at our residence by the majority of our guests. It proves to be very convenient for shopping and getting food, while it never giving any noise or disturbance because of its vicinity.

The place is well signed, easy to find and marked by proper geographic coordinates indicated on the website; the geographic coordinates are always repeated in the last e-mail (as done as well to you) that we send to our clients before their arrival and they are accompained by written road indications attached to the same e-mail. All other clients have found our residence very easily, at any time, day and night!

The remaining complaints come, sorry to say, from an instinctive and superficial evaluation of our place due, most probably, to the very short presence at our place and influenced by a bad initial state of mind and tiredness. In fact you arrived very late in the night end left our villa straight after you woke up in the morning.

No one ever complained about the cleannes of our rooms (how you can see from the other numerous and positive reviews), while the little leak on the kitchen is just a small spot that we had not time to paint because the villa has been booked since months without any interval.

The hot tub was dry because it was the day of the regular weekly maintenance in which we also change off the water for the best standard of hygiene.

Finally there is nothing to say about the supposed garbage on the road as it doesn't exist at all. Certainly I remain astonished at such shamelessness. In any case about this matter I can say, by being a lawyer practicing for over 40 years, that this accusation can be considered as a crime of “spreading defamatory, false and misleading news” according to Italian law.

After all this stated above I conclude by wishing that, at the end, you have found something to your liking.
The owner
