Fantastic location, well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

All the positive comments agreed - and then some. We always self-cater and this was one of the best for location, space, comfort and facilities. Terribly sorry we forgot to clean the oven - remembered on the plane.

Wonderful home by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for eight nights, it is in a beautiful location, easy walk to restaurants and shops. Beautiful courtyard to sit and relax in. The house has been remodeled and is very modern. Especially loved the bedroom with attached bathroom and good size shower. Carmen was excellent to work with and gave us many suggestions where to go.

I would highly recommend staying here. Also next door is a Beach Club where you can go and spend the day for a fee and have a lounge chair with umbrella, they also have a restaurant, bar and pool. Was quite nice.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one night at the Mermaid House as a way to break up the drive from the south to the north, but I could very happily have stayed much longer. The house is absolutely immaculate. It is an old stone structure that has been meticulously renovated, and elegantly combines the old and the new (the pictures definitely don't do it justice). The bedrooms are big and the beds are very comfy. Both bedrooms upstairs have ensuite bathrooms, plus there is another on the main floor. In addition, Carmen made sure that the kitchen was stocked with all the basics for cooking a meal at home.

The location is really great - only steps from the beach, and within a few minutes walk of many excellent restaurants. Carmen can tell you all kinds of excellent things to see and do in the area, including visiting some spectacular beaches. Taormina is only a few minutes away by car, and Etna is a short distance beyond that. We really enjoyed our (all too short) stay at the Mermaid House.

Mermaid House - A home away from home

  • 5 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 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 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!)
