Description

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Aci Castello

Our “Villa delle Kentie” is a structure, on the territory of Acicastello, next to the town of Catania, the sea, the city centre of Catania and the main high roads that lead to all the famous sites of eastern Sicily in less than an hour (Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Caltagirone, ...). It consists of: a) a double-villa, one occupied by the owner and the other hired to up to 6 persons (living-room, kitchen, 2 bed rooms, 1 bath and a wide terrace), called "Villa delle Kentie - Sole" (ref.nr.235510), b) a second, separate building, with separate entrance, consisting of a wide living-room with kitchen, 6 bed-rooms (up to 13/17 persons), 3 bath rooms and a wide terrace, called "Villa delle Kentie - Mare" (ref.nr.260724) and c) a wide garden with swimming-pool, common to all the 3 structures (the pool stays on a sort of a hill, in the middle of the garden and higher than the buildings around, so that the 3 units are not visible one from the other).

  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Great pool, large, nice owners, dated kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very reasonable about allowing us a Monday to Monday week, and a late checkout. The large (shared) pool and gardens and most of the house are very nice, especially the outside tables. We had easy day trips to Syracuse, Catania, Taormina and Mount Etna and good evenings and meals out in Aci Castello and Aci Trezza. The house is large for the price and there are many rooms. The ensuite double however has no windows and suffers from very loud mechanical noise by being beside the pool mechanism which made it almost impossible to sleep in that room.

. The kitchen as you can see from the picture. It would be good if the owners updated the kitchen and the kitchen equipment (utensils) and things like the TV and added some lamps and wifi in the living room. Overall lovely pool, very large for the price, good trips and sights nearby. Helpful owner.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and suggestions. The kitchen equipment (utensils) seams to be a big deal, even if we try our best to put at ours guests disposition every immaginable thing and tool, but ... once they miss a garlic press, than they need a big fish preparation knife, more an electric koffee machine (while the 3 XXL mokas are not enough) that's difficult to find in Sicily, ... - it's hard to have everything but we try to be as complete as possible - in any case, ask for what you are missing and if possible we will give it to you! :-) The WiFi is not foreseen yet, but we are installing it these days.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trovato la casa comoda e funzionale.Siamo stati accolti con professionalità e gentilezza.lo spazio esterno è meraviglioso:la piscina è grande,limpida,pulita...attrezzata di sdraio,ombrelloni,tavolo da ping pong,docce...tutto a nostra disposizione.Il parco verde è curato in ogni dettaglio,e la vegetazione ricca e rigogliosa,ci hanno permesso di sdraiarci al fresco in giardino.Per questo e per tanto altro,consigliamo Kentie mare a comitive numerose e a famiglie con bambini.GRAZIE MILLE!!!

laissez-vous tenter...pour une aventure martienne

  • 3 of 5

L'accueil est très sympathique contrairement à l'apparence de la villa un bunker en sous sol avec une façade qui ferait frémir un architecte. La cuisine est minuscule et pas du tout adaptée à la capacité d'accueil, il manque des ustensiles élémentaires tels que la cafetière, bols, poêles et le réfrigérateur n'avait pas été nettoyé!!! Le salon est spacieux mais avec deux canapés sales et inconfortables. Les chambres sont grandes et climatisées mais les draps sont usés et sur les taies d'oreiller de magnifiques auréoles jaunes et les matelas mériteraient d'être changés. Les deux salles de bain sont très petites et une une des deux douches n'est pas accessible pour un individu de taille normale.

La piscine est très grande et le plongeoir très apprécié avec beaucoup de transats et un beau jardin mais prévoir une séance de manucure car vous ressortez de la piscine tout vert, la piscine étant chargée en sulfate de cuivre. Cependant la villa est très bien située, proche de Catane, de l'autoroute et des sites touristiques à faire sur la côte ouest.

Owner's Response: Merci pour Votre témoignage et Vos suggestions. L''apparence de la dépendance est bien sure pas élégante, mais fonctionnelle (presque toutes les pièces ont accès direct à la terrasse) et sa position à moitié hors de sol la mantient très fraiche en été et nous a permis de réaliser une terrasse grande comme toute la maison, ou il y a la table de ping-pong, les chaises-longues, .... La cuisine est normale (pas industrielle), mais il semble que c'est très difficile de l'arranger et équiper comme il faut, car une fois nos hôtes cherchent la cafetière continentale (il y a 3 mokas XXL que font 1.5lt de café et c'est très difficile de la trouver ici), une fois le presse-ail, une autre fois des poêles industrielles, ... - en tous cas, signalez nous Vos exigences que nous chercherons toujours de les satisfaire, si possible immédiatement. Les draps et les serviettes sont louées à la blanchisserie, mais même si nous cherchons d'y poser l'attention maximale il peut se passer qu'elle ne soient pas parfaites - signalez le immédiatement que nous disposons d'une réserve ou atteindre pour les substituer. Les salles de bain ont été rénovées et les futures témoignages le indiqueront. Enfin, que la piscine fait devenir vertes certains cheveux est du (selon notre maitre piscine et notre coiffeur) aux shampoos utilisés, car il ne se passe à tous et jamais a nos mêmes - la qualité des produits personnels est importante, même en voyage - en tous cas c'est naturellement ennuyant mais se résoudre au premier lavage. Continuez s.v.p. de nous signaler toutes les aspect que nous pourrions améliorer, de sorte que les futures hôtes trouvent possiblement tout ce qu'il choisissent. Merci d'avance!

Inadmissible hébergement ...

  • 2 of 5

Inadmissible hébergement pas du tout lié avec les photos du site, plutôt un bunker qu'une villa. Accueil de la propriétaire très sommaire. Mobilier désuet et quasi inexistant pas du tout pratique, cuisine trop petite canapé en très mauvais état impossible de s'asseoir. Salles d'eau trop petites. Humidité permanente dans les chambres le seul point positif il y a l'air conditionné dans chaque chambre car la chaleur y est permanente. Sinon l'endroit où nous avons séjourner était plutôt calme. Le babecue est vétuste l'utilisation est impossible. La Piscine nous à laisser nos maillot de bain vert !!! Hygiéniquement laisse à désirer.

TROP CHER POUR CE QUE C'EST !!!!!

Owner's Response: C'est très dommage que les hôtes que font des dommages leur même (les enfants ont cassé 2 lits, jeté les chaises longues dans la piscine, ...) et que donc voient retenir des petites contributions de leur caution à la fin du séjour se vengent en faisant des témoignages terrifiants, en sachant bien de faire encore plus dommage qu'avant, car les sites publient toutes les témoignages des hôtes et permettent aux propriétaires seulement des réponses, pas des éliminations de ces attaques. Quoi faire donc, comme propriétaire? Subir sans jamais atteindre à la caution? Mais ça ne met pas au répare de ce type de témoignages non plus. Il faut simplement se taire et subir, à l'apparence!?!
