"We had a wonderful week at the house this past summer. It was very clean, quiet, great location with quick walk to village with a lovely view of the Mediterranean. The caretaker was very helpful when needed and the owners are only an email away, with very quick answers to questions. Thank you, Grace for sharing your island home with us! We definitely will be back!"

"My family and I enjoyed a nice week on Stromboli island at Casa Dox in the Ficogrande beach area. My parents joined us and our three kids for a week there and we enjoyed relaxing away from the distractions of internet, phone and tv. We read a lot of books, enjoyed the very close beach 30 meters away and ate a lot of gelatto in the process. We only ran into like 2 English speakers there, so it was like a crash course in Italian to get us by, but we made it through okay. Fiora was extremely nice and helpful to work with in booking the rental and Pippo at the island was helpful and kind although he spoke no English so we never really knew what he was telling us with regards to living in the place.
The house is roomy and has plenty of room for 10 people including three showers and a laundry room. There are fans in each room and an adequate kitchen. If you come from the West like my parents did, you would probably miss air conditioning and a microwave, but thankfully we had some rain which cooled things down for a few days.
The garden was really pretty and nice there and added to the mood as we were able to gaze at the sea laying in loungers there and looking at Strombolicchio all day long. At night, we turned the chairs around and stared at the volcano where you could watch is spew small amounts of lava and clinkers hourly.
My kids had a great time at the house and actually did quite a bit of artwork there of the volcano and seascape. We found Pumice rocks on the beach, collected lava rocks, made sand castles and swam in the ocean. The only downer for them was that although there are pools on the island, no hotel on the island would let us pay a daily rate to use it so the kids never got any pool time.
This was a special place and has given us many fond memories for the future."
