In summary: A great host and a great apartment. Francesco was a very helpful, friendly and gracious host - not just with the apartment but he also collected us from the airport and arranged transport to the airport for our journey home. He is a very nice person and speaks very good English. I would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Mondello. It has everything you need in terms of all basic requirements – air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher ironing board etc. The apartment is in a quiet residential neighbourhood but it is only an easy ten minute walk from Piazza Mondello and the public sections of the beach. Francesco also has everything you will need for the beach in the apartment – umbrella, chairs, football and so on. The bus stop to central Palermo is also close by (tickets cost just over one euro and it takes about 20 minutes). The supermarket and a very nice pasticceria / wine bar (Bar Collica) are also just around the corner. Cash machine and post office nearby too. Regarding the terrace, the pictures do not give an accurate sense of what is it really like. It is HUGE. It seems bigger than the apartment itself. 360 degrees with views of Capo Gallo nature reserve on one side and Monte Pellegrino on the other. In the distance you can also see the sea and the Antico Stabilimento Balneare di Mondello. The terrace also has a big tiled BBQ stocked with charcoal and real wood and there is also an outdoor sink. All doors and windows have outside shutters. All except the main door to the kitchen also have inside mosquito / insect mesh screens so you can open the windows at night if you want. Highly recommended.

Francesco's penthouse is fantastic: very spacious, very clean and comfortable, air-conditioned and quiet, 10 minutes from the gorgeous beach. Francesco's house is near the best part of the beach, which is a public part so you don't have to pay for sunbeds. It's also next to the best place on the strand for lunch (El Chiosco). The views from the huge terrace of the penthouse are beautiful. Best in Mondello! The beach is amazing: fine, golden sand and warm, turquoise sea. Swimming was awesome. The bus stop to Palermo is also near the penthouse, and we went there 3 times for dinner and promenading (the town is very convivial at night: hopping!) Francesco was the perfect host; excellent at communicating and facilitating everything, from travelling from the airport to handing over the keys, giving us information about the island, Mondello and Palermo. Best experience I've had so far on Airbnb. I'd say best place to stay in Mondello.

English and French English: Absolutely perfect apartment and a wonderfull Host Franco met us at the apartment at our agreed time of our arrival giving us a warm welcome and introduction to Mondello. The apartment was well equipped, clean, bright, comfortable and in a super location (10min from the beach). Particularly lovely were the expansive views of Mondello rooftops and beyond from the roof terrace, which was a great place to have breakfast and an early evening glass of wine. Communication with Franco was always prompt and friendly and we have no reservation in recommending Franco as an ideal hostess. We can definitely recommend Franco's apartment as an ideal city centre location giving easy access to the city centre and at 20min from Palermo. Highly recommended. French: Franco est un hôte très sympathique et disponible. Nous sommes arrivė en milieu de matinée et quelque peu en retard sur l'horaire convenu. Mais Franco a néanmoins pris le temps de bien nous accueillir, de nous faire visiter l'appartement, et de nous conseiller des choses à faire sur Mondello et Palerme. Nous avons également echangé par téléphone pendant le séjour sans soucis (Franco peut éventuellement appeler un taxi pour vous par exemple). L'appartement est très mignon et bien situé dans la ville. La terrasse offre une vue à 360 degrés. Il est vraiment conforme au photo et très propres. Je le recommande sans hésiter.

Penthouse is just like at the photo or may be even better. Spacious, but very cozy inside and outside. Great living room with large dinning table, completely equipped kitchen, a lot of towels. 2 independent bathrooms, very clean, no problem with water pressure, even if 2 showers are used at the moment. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds. For 2 couples which preciate privacy everything was perfect. And terasse is brilliant, it's really 360*, the views are amazing from any place. It's really great choice for vacations in Mondello. 15 minutes by walk from apartment and you are at the beautiful beach with caribbean colors. On the way to the beach there is good supermarket. Francesco is helpful, very nice person easy to communicate. We are very pleased with our stay in Mondello - thank you, Francesco!
