Mascali Appartment

  • 1 of 5

The Appartment was a litlle disapointed. The airea is noisy and untidy. A lot of traffic for the House and a Churchbell wo rings every quarter of an hour, all the hours and quarters. There is a lot of dirty on the street and also outside the railing of the Flat were we like to sit on the beachside. So we clean that first . You don't have a private place to sit outside. What you see on the Photo is the place were every Person of the Flat pass away to go to the beach. Inside it is also not very clean. The Kitchen did not have respectable utensil to cook and to use. We hire an Appartment because we want sometime to cook, otherwise we can better go to a Hotel. The cupboards are musty and smells. There are not much windows but the Lamps are also not good.

The only possitive is the space of the bedroom. So, if that is the only importaint for you, hire it, but you will be pay to much.

Owner's Response: Dear J.H., I appreciate you took the time to write a review for my flat but your opinion is not very objective, you are only trying to damage us and I can only assume this is driven by the general disappointment of your holiday for some reason. I respect the fact that you can be unhappy with your stay, not everyone can be pleased but I can not tolerate that your very personal opinion,that often goes far from reality,is trying downgrading a property that I have rented out successfully since 2005 with consistent ratings of 4 or 5 stars. I think it is extremely unfair that for all of these "issues", you never tried to contact us to discuss your concerns. I can acknowledge the fact that there could have been a bit of noise in the area during those days. This unfortunately has to be expected during summer months as the house is just ON the beach in a touristic area. Had you asked me at time of booking I would have said that the best time to come would be from SEPTEMBER to MAY if you were looking for a very quiet place. In Italy traditionally most churches’ bells ring and that it is something we can not control at all and also this has not affected most of our past customers, and when it did, it was nothing close to the way it affected you. You are also mentioning that it was dirty outside the gate, that again has nothing to do with the property. That is a public area and the week of your stay there was a general strike of waste collectors which is the same reason why you saw the streets messy. Also the courtyard outside the flat is my property and all my guests have the right to stay there. We have to allow only access to the beach by regulations but it cannot be like you said, it is not a skyscraper, there are just four other holiday apartment units which are rarely inhabited at the same time. The thing that makes me more upset is that you have questioned the cleanliness of the place. In eight years never ever someone complained about this, we always clean the place thoroughly at the end of every stay. If you had noticed something that was not in a good state you should have told us straight away. As for the kitchen utensils, again your expectations are probably too high. In the apartment there is everything as described in the website to cook basic meals, nothing less! I will learn something from your review and will do my best to avoid any future disappointment with my customers but the extent of your complaints is far beyond reality.

Mascali apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Mascali apartment. The highlights were its proximity to the beach and the views of Mount Etna.

The apartment was perfect for the two of us. It's well sited, so easy (with a car) to explore the many attractions in the area - Taormina to the north, Catania to the south and the dramatic landscape surrounding Mount Etna immediately to the west.

We arrived quite late on our first night so appreciated being met in the nearby town and escorted to the apartment - without this I think we would have had trouble finding the apartment!

Wonderful stay at sicily

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sicily. The flat has two nice rooms: one room for cooking and eating and a separate bedroom with enough space. Additional there is a bathroom with toilet washbasin and shower. Outside is enough space to sit and relaxe in the shade of a tree with big foliages. The distance to the sea is only 50 yards. From the flat you have a direct exit to the beach. Outside of the flat to the sea side is a shower. It's a great advantage because you can take a shower directly after swimming in the sea!

We enjoyed this stay very well because of warm and sunny weather and a very nice region for adventure and sightseeing. A special tip: Rent a scooter and feel the warm wind and the sun at your skin! It's a great feeling!

Great off-season vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this flat in October and enjoyed very much the small community, the lack of traffic, the ease of parking, the quiet town, and good nearby restaurants. We found this a good base for touring the seaside communities, Mount Etna, Syracuse, and the small hill towns. The accommodations were as described and were comfortable for our stay. This flat is a good value and we recommend it.

Nice apartment in Mascali, Sicily

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was pleasant and cosy, nicely close to the beach. The apartment is easy to access, it would be convenient for e.g. visitors on wheelchair. The equipment of the apartment was moderately good. The hosts were very helpful and friendly, wanting to ensure our vacation was successful. There were good restaurants and bars close to he apartment, as well as a nice tobacco shop.

Pied à terre au bord de mer

  • 4 of 5

Appartement avec terrasse donnant directement sur la mer. Nous avons apprécié la situation de l'appartement, bord de mer avec vue sur l'Etna, le calme avec commerces et restaurants à proximité. Nous garderons un beau souvenir des petits déjeuners avec vue sur la mer et lever de soleil.

Point de départ idéal pour visiter Taormina, l'Etna, Catane et Syracuse.

La disponibilité et la gentillesse des propriétaires est à souligner, avant le séjour pour répondre à nos questions, à notre arrivée pour nous accueillir et après notre départ pour nous renvoyer l'argent oublié sur place !

Adresse a recommander pour couple ou famille avec enfants.
