It Just Doesn't get any better!
This beautiful penthouse apartment is as spectacular as the pictures! It has been completely remodeled with floor to ceiling windows over looking the sea, a beautiful well appointed and modern kitchen, laundry room and cozy couch/sitting area. The master bedroom is to die for with an incredible view of the sea from your bed, a large walk- in closet and gorgeous bathroom. There are also 2 more bedrooms and bath. The apartment is spotless and the hosts are the best we have ever experienced! They are committed to ensuring you have a wonderful experience and are incredibly responsive to any questions you have. We were welcomed upon our arrival by Daniela', Gaetano and their son, who helped carry our luggage up the stairs. Waiting for us in the apartment was a bowl of fresh fruit, Proseco, juice and milk/cream in the refrigerator. Upon our departure, they insisted on coming to help us again and say good-bye. Unbelievable! Our only regret was not being able to stay longer than 3 days. We did a lot of day trips - using the apartment as our home base. We visited Taormina, Skordia, and Noto and wished we had flown into the Catania airport- 30 min away vs Palermo. We also found the restaurants steps outside our apartment to be excellent as well as the service. You can't go wrong with this place and we in fact hope to find our way back!!
Dear Sally ,
We are glad you enjoyed your stay in the apartment!
You are super kind and nice !
We really hope to meet you again in future .
Thank you so much

Beauty in Aci Trezza
Beautiful property in lovely town. Lots to do within walking distance and very friendly people. Great views. Great local cafe outside your door!!!
Dear Catherine ,
It was a pleasure for us to meet people as kind and friendly as your family .
Thank you ! Really hope to meet you another time :)
Family stay in Aug 2019
We booked 11 nights in the apartment and first impressions matched the description in the listing.
Location - really central to the town - above one of Aci Trezza's best cafes (serving gelato and granite, both should be tried with brioche), local stores and bakery. Lots of options to eat - and we tried a number of the recommendations from Carla.
Apartment - fully supplied with all conceivable appliances one could wish for. Clean with plenty of towels.
Great place to be based and less than an hour to Taormina, Etna and Siracusa/Ortigia so plenty of options to explore the key spots of eastern Sicily. 30 mins to Catania airport.
Beaches - 2 mins walk to rocky beaches (which we did lots) or decks with sun loungers/umbrellas (which we also did). Plenty of other beaches can be driven to (Isolla Bella, Catania etc)
Parking was fine as took the option of reserved parking (at EUR6 per day) in a nearby underground car park - kept the car cool too!
Would recommend the property and Aci Trezza for exploring the eastern side of Sicily.
Thank you to Carla and Guido for the help during our stay and the additional tips they gave us.
Best regards, the Taylor family.
It has been a pleasure for us to host your family , Lachlan .
We hope to meet you again in future !
Thank you :)
Great accommodation and host, highly recommended
Spacious penthouse apartment with amazing large terrace looking over port and sea , situated in lively street of small village. Fully equipped modern house and from here you can easily explore the east coast or have a chilled time in this lovely village. The host is minding her guest into perfection. You can find restaurants, bars, supermarkets, vegetable and fruit shop across the road and a parking garage nearby (5 euro / 24h). We had a great 2 weeks holiday and can highly recommend this place.
Thank you very much Johan,
we are happy to have hosted you.
As beautiful as the pictures
The view of the sea and harbor from the balcony is spectacular. The balcony is massive (if you practice yoga, bring your mat!), and there is an overhang that provides shade throughout the day after the early morning. The living room/dining area and master bedroom all have this beautiful view, with glass walls and doors. It was very hard to leave to go do our tourist things (Mt. Etna, Siracusa, Taormina-you get the picture), which were all easily accessible to Aci Castello by car. The apartment is beautiful, modern, and very comfortable. The master has a large closet and ensuite modern bathroom, and of course the view!! Blackout curtains did help in the morning to let us sleep later. The two back bedrooms were comfortable, one had a small window, the other was without one. But I was told both were just fine. They shared the bathroom in the common area, which also was modern, clean and a good size.The kitchen was fully equipped, and even had the coffee pods for us to use. We didn't cook, just heated up a few things, but if you wanted to cook it would be easy there. There were a lot of restaurants and cafes very close by, so no need to get into your car. You can walk along the waterfront for a long distance as well.
I was so grateful that they left cleaning supplies, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, sponges etc. just so we didn't have to purchase those things. Oh, there is a small market right across the street, open in the morning and reopens at around 5:30 pm, where we bought essentials and lovely prosciutto and salami. And right downstairs is a café, for coffee, drinks, gelato, sandwiches, snacks, desserts and they are so very nice, and seem to be open very long hours. Same customers are there most days hanging out and chatting. We drove from Palermo, which much of the way was scenic. We let the owners know approximately when we expected to arrive, and we were welcomed by them. They helped us with our suitcases up the stairs (2 flights), and they had champagne, Italian cookies, fruit, fig jam, bottles of water and coke waiting for us. They were lovely and helpful. They arranged a parking garage for us down the street, and answered our questions-even checked in with us during our stay. When we left, which was hard to do, they met us at the apartment and again helped us with the luggage.
I would definitely recommend a stay here, I hope I will have the chance to return.
Dear Laurel ,
It has been a pleasure for us to host people as kind as your family and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay in our apartment .
It would be great for you to come to Sicily another time , we sincerely hope to meet you again :)
Thank you, Carla
Wonderful apartment in fantastic setting
Despite our delayed arrival, Gaetano and his family were the perfect hosts. When we walked into this spacious apartment, we were delighted with the view to the island and faraglione. The apartment was spotless. Our host provided welcome Sicilian prosecco, fruit, homemade biscuits and jam. There were plenty of provisions in the cupboards. Our hosts responded promptly to questions and requests. Despite being on the main street, it was very quiet. We were very close to many excellent restaurants and cafes. Two weeks was not long enough in this haven.
Dear Claire and Frank ,
it was great for us to host people so kind as you are . We would like all our guests to be like you.
We hope to see you again . Thank you
Daniela and Gaetano
