We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful apartment! The sunset views from the balcony were spectacular, the location is perfect (on one of the most picturesque streets in Ortigia) and it has all the basic appliances you possibly need for a holiday/ break away. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough - we would love to come back again!

Emilia's place is fabulous! The apartment is exactly like the photos show - so close to the sea -amazing sunset views from the balcony. The apartment is well furnished with everything you need -including for simple meals. The location is perfect -really close to all the fantastic restaurants, sights and atmospheric streets of Ortigia. Emilia was a great host -she communicated really promptly before our stay and was there to greet us with lots of tips and recommendations about the best places to go. We loved staying here

Emilia's place is in a great location for seeing Siracusa and communication with Emilia was really easy and straightforward. The bed is springy (and up a flight of steep metal stairs, so not great for people with mobility issues) and the shower is tiny, but the view out to the sea from the balcony makes up for the small issues. Also, as noted in the description there is no Wifi but we were fine to use it in cafes and restaurants instead. We stayed in April and found the location to be quiet at night (I read other reviews that said it was noisy in the evenings, so I imagine those were from the summer months when it's busier.) It's in a great location and good value for money!

Emilia is an amazing host and I would recommend her to all my friends. The flat is in a wonderful location and the view is great. The bathroom is small and it would probably needs a refurbishment but the flat overall is very pretty. Emilia helped me in any possible way and I felt like at home.

Clean, basic studio flat in a central location of Ortigia. Easy walking distance to all the places of interest, bars and restaurants. There is a small beach/sunbathing area about 5 minutes walk away. Lovely sea view, and on a pedestrian area no traffic noise. We were unfortunate with some really unexpected cold weather, so discovered there is no heating nor wifi available, when otherwise would not have been bothered.

Response from Emilia:
I'm sorry for the cold water, of course there is heating. Maybe it was off and we didn't notice that. Sometimes asking is the best solution! (: The description of the apartment services says there is no wifi. Still hope you had a nice vacation and once again, I am sorry for the cold water, next time I will check twice if the heating is on!
