Mermaid House - A home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was lovely ~ bright and airy ~ an eclectic mix of old structure with modern/new interior. It was meticulously clean and stocked with the necessities. The beds were extremely comfortable and each room was each equipped with satellite TV including the main floor living area. We were only steps from a long stretch of a beautiful beach. We enjoyed barbecuing and dining on the privately-enclosed patio. We were welcomed by Carmen who has a fantastic and outgoing personality. She showed us around the house and provided useful suggestions of places to visit during our one-week stay. She was always a phone call away. The villa is perfectly situated. We were a 10 minute drive from Taormina which could be seen on a mountain, to the right, while standing on the beach close to the villa. Catania to the south, and Messina to the north, were each approximately a 40 minute drive away. There are numerous cafés/bars/gelaterie; indoor/outdoor restaurants and grocery/speciality stores (i.e., fish; meat; cheese/deli and fruit/vegetable shops) within this quaint town and the BEST ice cream (whatever flavour) is at a bar in the piazza closest to the church. Carmen, thank you for your hospitality and kindness. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid House. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and family. We hope to visit again one day soon.

Mermaid House - our stay and experience

  • 5 out of 5
This villa was very clean and well kept . The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and well supplied. The villa was an old structure from the 1600's which was restored and was very charming. It was located near the sea and just off the main street (Lungo Mare) in Letojanni. The piazza was near to our place with many restaurants and bars within walking distance and we loved it, providing us with all the amenities we were looking for.
Carmen was most accommodating with our questions and sightseeing suggestions; she was very professional. giving advice and always up for a chat and a laugh, nothing was too much trouble. She was always available to us for anything.
Thank you Carmen for having been the great person that you are and we will recommend this place, and you , to all our friends. We will look forward to our next visit there.

Outstanding property, so close to the beach!

  • 5 out of 5
The description and photos of the Mermaid House ticked all the boxes and the reality is just as lovely. We couldn't believe how close we were to one of the quietest beaches in the area! Another added bonus is that the sun beds provided in the courtyard are light enough for any able bodied adult to carry them down to the beach, saving you the typical 4 Euro a day tourist tax on rental. The house itself is stunning and spacious, ideal for our 4 adults but we could also see how it'd be easy enough to accommodate another two. It's a blend of typical Mediterranean and well thought out design, whoever decorated it obviously has an eye for these things. There's loads of storage space (often one of my whinges about holiday lets), everything is there that you'd expect in terms of facilities and the air conditioning and other electricals all work very well.The house was very clean when we arrived and Carmen was the perfect hostess, coming to find us when we got lost, making sure we knew where all the best places to go were etc. We found Letojanni to be a brilliant location for us as we were close enough to Taormina and other famous locations (Isola Bella, Etna etc.) - just a short drive away - but we also got the benefit of a lovely local village atmosphere with enough restaurants, cafes and shops to keep us amused on more lazy days when we didn't want to drive. Prices were a lot more reasonable in the local area than in more commercial tourist resorts, our shopping was coming up at a comparable price for Lidl or similar in the UK and the quality was really good. Overall a really fantastic holiday and one that we'd all be happy to repeat tomorrow (didn't want to leave at all!)

luxury villa close to beach

  • 5 out of 5
I went on holiday with my partner for two nights only, unique house just a few meters from the beach, furnished elegant and taste a mix of old and new, garden terrace with barbecue, lounge, kitchen complete with everything needed to cook two large bedrooms, each bedroom with sea view and air conditioning satellite TV, wifi, bathroom with large-shower , exceptional cleanliness.
I had lunch and dinner outdoors for a good two days just breathing the scent of the sea. No unpleasant smell AND NO FARM AROUND, JUST A Countrymen WITH SOME AROMATIC PLANTS AND A DOG. The only negative note: Unfortunately I only booked for two nights.
I'll be back '

Sewage treatment, chicken farms, & graffiti

Sewage treatment, chicken farms, & graffiti
  • 2 out of 5
We just spent a week in the Mermaid House in Letojanni. We had a very mixed experience and we were surprised no one had mentioned some important drawbacks in other reviews. For this house, unfortunately, I need to list the “cons” first--

CONS
- The house is surrounded by an active sewage treatment plant and 2 chicken farms. You definitely smell sewage any time you go outside. If we tried to open the windows to enjoy the “sea air”, we smelled sewage instead. Fortunately for us, it was mid-winter and we could keep the house closed up. (The owner, Carmen, says the sewage is a “seasonal” problem—if you are interested in staying here, you might want to ask.)
- The house is on the very edge of town, on a road where all neighboring houses are hidden behind high concrete walls that are covered in graffiti. (Note there are no photos of the house from the street....)
- Less important-- Pillows are foam bricks. House is missing some basics, like garbage cans beyond the kitchen, or a colander for draining pasta.

PROS
- Carmen was very nice to deal with, and she kindly provided milk, coffee, tea, and muffins for us so we would have food when we arrived. When our hot water heater went out after a storm, she got it repaired quickly.
- Newly redone house, with very nice bathrooms, wood beam ceilings upstairs, and tile floors. Pleasant outdoor eating area on the patio (if the wind is in your favor…)
- Nice layout for families or couples, with 2 bedrooms upstairs each with their own bathroom, and a shared space downstairs with another bathroom.
- Partial views of ocean from upstairs windows are nice
- Location truly is walking distance to the beach (but you will want to go a few blocks south to avoid the sewage smell).

Unfortunately, due to the location and the smell, I would not recommend this house to anyone.
