A wonderful stay in Mondello
Me and 13 friends had a wonderful stay in Giovanni’s home at the end of September. The 100 year old house is extremely beautiful, well stocked, and with a fantastic balcony and patio area for enjoying evenings in the sun.
Located literally 1 minute from the beach opposite, and with shops and the buzzy Mondello just a short walk away, it is a good location for those wanting a variety of drinking and eating options nearby.
Giovanni and Paola were very communicative and helpful throughout the whole booking and renting process.
Can’t recommend this place highly enough! Just remember to bring your moscito repellent :)
BIG LET DOWN AND WASTE OF MONEY.
The property is as pictured.
However, not picture is the following:
- The area is infested with mosquitoes and plenty of bats. We had to keep the windows and doors closed to keep from getting eaten alive... Imagine having to close the house up at night with the heat and humidity with no ventilation
-No Air Conditioning made this a total nightmare.
- All beds had ripped mosquito netting
- All beds had old dirty sheets.
- The towels were old and falling apart.
- The building was ran down and paint peeling, I suppose some may like the old ran down look.
- NO HOT WATER until asked for upstairs.
- Had to ask for hot water to be connected down stairs.
- Owner wanted to use the parking for his own use while we were staying there. That was crazy.
- The Owner wanted us to water the yard while we stayed. That was even crazier.
- The bathroom electrical was unstable and unusable, GOT SHOCKED BY IT. Lucky to be alive.
We stayed only 1 day of the 7 days we paid for. I would never stay here nor recommend. We rented another place in a snap not too far from this one to have a vacation that was comfortable and clean. Needless to say, this caused us to pay for our vacation twice. What a shame, this place could be an incredible place to stay. The Owner should use our money to fix his place and give people a real value for their money. This place is a dump.
* The 1 star is for the beach across the street.
Spacious house in a great location!
We were a group of 8 women on holiday and enjoyed our stay in this wonderful, old house. There was plenty of room and the owner made us feel very welcome and even provided us with plenty of water and a bottle of wine! The house is located directly across from the beach and several doors down from a couple of great bakeries and a gelateria. The terraces were a great place to watch the sunset or have a cannolo for breakfast. There is plenty of parking and we felt secure with a locked gate. It is easy walking distance to the little town center. Gianni & Paola were wonderful to work with. Thanks for making our trip memorable!
Wonderful place to relax
The house was everything I hoped it would be. There was so much space to relax . The fact that the beach across the road gets so crowded doesn't matter as one can walk to the beach, have a swin and then return to the house, sit out on the veranda and look out at the sea. One can enjoy the amenities of Mondello with a bakery around the corner, lots of shops and bars in the area and then in twenty minutes be in the city of Palermo. Overall it was a fantastic experience and we had a wonderful holiday.

Very nice house and beach location close to Palermo
We have had the pleasure to stay for one week in this Monumental Belgium house in front of the Mondello beach. We were with 12 persons. The house is well equipped and has a good Wifi, especially for our kids a great advantage. There are enough places around the house to follow the sun till the evening.
Palermo is close with the public bus (606 and 101) we have been there a couple times, also have we made a trip to Cefalu, with the public bus and train.
Another advantage is the backery, this is just next to the house, this bread is really tasty.
We went every day to the beach. Our kids followed a windsurfing lesson at Albaria.org by Vincenzo, he arranged a special windsurfing lesson.
Many thanks to the houseonwner and we would definitely recommend the house.
Pieter e la sua famiglia sono stati degli ospiti perfetti.Hanno avuto molta cura della casa lasciandola pulita e ordinata. Spero che tornino di nuovo a casa mia.
"We stayed for a week in ...
"We stayed for a week in this delightfully eccentric art nouveau house across the road from the beach in Mondello. The house is surrounded by a fence and garden, so there is a sense of privacy on the several balconies. The beach itself is wonderful and ideal for families with its soft sand and boardwalk. There are good small cafes and shops within the immediate area and a very friendly atmosphere. It was sufficiently well equipped for the eight adults in our group and though the kitchen is basic we found it very adequate. Gianni, the owner, was very friendly, helpful and prompt in solving the few minor problems which arose.
It is very easy to reach Mondello: 1. by a citybus 806 from Politeama Square(main square in Palermo); by car, just following in the highway A29 the direction Mondello.
