This place is very good, you just like come home or to stay by friends who provided all conform to you. Elena had amazing surprise with delicious food that was waiting us and actually the fridge and kitchen was totally full with all needs for several breakfasts. Mimmo was very helpful and easy reachable for all questions. The apartment is very cute, specious and has outstanding view. The amenities in the apartment are more than enough and can be very helpful if you forgot something to take with you. We were happy with everything! Only one note for travellers, who accounts for active internet use, the signal is weak and works only in 1 room as well as slow. We hope that Elena and Mimmo will improve this.

A very nice apartment in Siracusa Only 15 minutes walk from Ortigia, 20 minutes walk from the Train Station & 25 minutes walk from Teatro Greco a 2 bedroom self contained apartment on the seafront. It has a full kitchen with complete cutlery, stove, fridge. The apartment is suitable for couples or families with small children. The bathroom is a nice size with a washing machine as well. The apartment has a nice balcony & plenty of windows to allow for sea breezes as well as air con in the main bedroom. Miami & Elena are very generous and supplied copious amounts of breakfast foods, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, mineral water and even wine & beer !! Elena even made us a lovely lunch for us to enjoy on our arrival as well as a nice snack when we left. Car parking is secure and outside the apartment block (suits small cars best although we had a Peugot 308 station wagon which squeezed in). You also have use of snorkelling gear for use at the entrance to the private rocky beach. Communication was excellent and Mimmo is able to converse easily in English. Highly Recommended

Elena and Mimo's place is beautiful, comfortable and a joy to stay in. Their description is entirely accurate. It is right next to the sea and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was so restful. They welcomed us like friends and contiuued throughtout the holiday in the same manner. They had prepared a lovely lunch for when we arrived which was so welcome after our long journey. And this was the first of many meals throughout the holiday. All vegetarian and much appreciated by a life long veggy and a carnivore. The apartment has everything you need and much more. The bedrooms are so comfortable, as is the living room and the kitchen is very well equipped. I would recommend this apartment to family, friends and everyone in the Airbnb community. It is in the centre of Syracuse, a beautiful, authentic Italian city and a short walk from the lovely island of Ortigia. The views from the window are lovely and there is a wonderful cliff walk, starting from just up the road. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and it is on a local bus route. Elena and Mimo are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed every minute. Thanks so much

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is very lovely and has great views out to sea and across to Ortigia. It's in a good position and within easy walking distance to Ortigia. If you stay here be sure to have a swim and snorkel off the private beach. Thank you Elena and Mimmo for being so welcoming and helpful!

Don't even know where to start..this Airbnb experience is the best one we ever had, and we had a lot. Elena and her husband are the most kind people you'll ever meet, so welcoming and easygoing. Communication was smooth, they're available whenever you need them. When we arrived they cooked us a beautiful meal, had a bottle of cold local wine and our fridge were full of fresh fruit, cold beers and breakfast. Coffee, spices, everything is provided. The balcony is amazing with the seaview and Siracusa itself is really charming. Would definately recommend everyone to stay here, if you wanna meet a warm and italian family which u quickly feel a part of. Thank u so much guys

Our hosts were welcoming and helpful. Checkin was easy and the apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Our hosts provided a generous welcome pack and a delicious first night (URL HIDDEN) thoughtful. The apartment is located right on the beachfront and has lovely garden and seaside views. The beach was warm and crystal clear- lovely to swim and snorkel. Supermarkets, restaurants and Ortigia are walkable, approximately 15 minutes. Enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
