Wonderful apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Yes - the reviews are all true. I very rarely write reviews, as I can't usually give wholehearted praise, and Gina knows that I don't really use social media! But, in this case, I feel I have to. The apartment is absolutely lovely - spacious and well-equipped, with very thoughtful touches of oil, vinegar and herbs, tea, coffee and sugar. The drinks in the fridge were very welcome and saved us shopping for heavy things. The terrace is a lovely place to be. I really hope I didn't kill the plants - I have black thumbs not green ones! We really liked the location, right behind the Teatro Massimo, so very easy to find our bearings. We loved walking around Palermo, and would have happily stayed longer than our 6 nights, and it was lovely to be able to relax so comfortably and completely at the end of a tiring day. Although it's a top floor (4th) apartment there is a tiny but perfectly functional lift which is also very secure and safe. The entire time we felt safe, but particularly in the apartment, which is extremely secure. Thank you Gina for everything, especially letting us in earlier than normal check-in time and arranging taxis for us and booking L'Anciova - absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I'm still remembering the outstanding Spada dish.

Very comfortable apartment in wonderful vibrant city

  • 5 of 5

Ideal accommodation to explore Palermo. Spacious top floor flat with wonderful views. Own lift so no need to huff and puff up the stairs. Everything within walking distance whatever your interests.....the opera, cathedral, palaces, markets and lovely restaurants.

Gina very kind and helpful. Arranged taxi from the airport + advice on where to visit.

Thoroughly recommend. Hope to explore more of Sicily another time

Superb Apartment ...Centrally Located...Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5

What an entirely fantastic stay in Palermo!

This beautiful, we'll appointed penthouse apartment, with terrace, is located just steps from Piazza Verdi and the Teatro Massimo. The pictures, while accurate, don't really convey how spacious this apartment is.

The apartment is large, bright, has modern fixtures, and is very clean. It has its own private elevator and is very safe.

From here::

you can catch the inner city buses, the hop on hop off bus, ride a horse drawn carriage through the streets of Palermo, catch the little white tourist train, grab a taxi...walk up the block to the historic Capo market. Close to restaurants and cafes.

Gina, our host, has been most gracious and extremely helpful. Very easy to speak to and readily responded to any questions we had (and we had some strange ones! Like where to buy loose leaf tea! We left the card). She truly made our stay memorable. Grazie mille, Gina! We hope we will see you again!

Rent this.apartment...you will not regret it!

Owner's Response: Omar & Dania are just fantastic and they were very exited about Palermo. It was really a pleasure to have them as guests...to welcome and talk to them. They left the apartment as they would leave theirs. I really hope to guest you again in the future and learn more about my town from you and your enthusiasm. A presto Gina

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, very handy for the Opera and good local restaurants. Very clean , comfortable and well equipped apartment with roof top terrace and views over the town. It lived up to its description and all the previous reviews !! Gina couldn't have been more helpful, arranging a taxi from the airport, provisions for our arrival late on a Sunday evening, recommending and booking local restaurants, looking after us as if we were friends without being intrusive !!

One slight drawback for us we found with the windows open at night (for fresh air ) the City noises were disturbing but this was easily resolved with earplugs but then we are very sensitive to any noise !! It certainly won't deter us from staying there again if Gina will have us !!

Absolutely beautiful penthouse with balcony and terrace. Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely brilliant stay in this apartment for 7 nights. The terrace is perfect for dining when we didn't feel like eating out. The master bedroom which is an excellent size is spotless and we were provided with towels and bathrobes. It has an ensuite and a balcony overlooking the Palermo Cattedrale which is a beautiful sight.

The living and dining room is open plan and a really good space.

Gina and her husband were wonderful and hospitable and check on us regularly if we need anything. Gina has provided us with water and juices and soda drinks on our arrival. Thank you Gina for your care and hospitality. Keith was able to practice his Italian talking to Roberto when he kindly helped carry our luggage to the bus stop.

We love Italy and travelled to many places around the country and we love Palermo and we were all a bit sad when we left as we really had such a nice time. The views of the mountain enveloping the whole city si absolutely spectacular. Even the Palermo airport was well placed with the mountain as a backdrop, its breathtaking.

Thank you for recommending Mondello, our little child had a swim and wouldn't want to leave the beach.

We also loved the market which is a couple of minutes away and there we bought fresh fruits and vegetables and fish. we had dinner at the trattoria by the mercato and the meal was gorgeous. There are good restaurants around piazza olivella and we also tried the street cafes close to the port which is gobsmacking cheap i.e. 50 cents for almost everything including a mouth watering arancini.

There are plenty to do in Palermo from riding the auto rickshaw around the city and cycling which we did. We also had a great time watching the opera at Teatro Massimo.

I could go on and on and sing praises about everything but just to say

Thank you very much once again Gina and Roberto.

I have recommended this place to my colleagues and friends in Oxford so I'm sure they will be in touch when they visit Sicily.
