“Fabulous views with every comfort”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

So much trouble was taken by Gianni and his wife Valentina to make our stay welcoming, including the lovely wine to share on our first night on our balcony listening to the sea. Superior kitchen made cooking a pleasure, very spacious and comfortable living area. Although primarily a holiday apartment it really felt like a home. Peaceful location ( in October) Enjoyed using the bikes to cycle into the town and surrounding area.
Thank you so much for a relaxing stay. Elaine and Martin

Elaine and Martin was simply the best guests that a host can desire. Always in time (check in and check out), perfect communication, they left Casabedda in perfect conditions and then it was a pleasure to talk with them, they are really 2 special persons. If you, dear host , will meet them, you'll be lucky! ! ! Super recommended from Casabedda!

“A fantastic place to stay”

We absolutely loved our holiday at Casabedda. We were excited about it from reading previous excellent reviews and wholeheartedly agree with them. Gianni and Valentina were so kind, welcoming and hospitable, and the location of the property is really great, halfway between Marina di Ragusa and the little beach village of Casuzze. Both can be reached in 15 minutes or so on foot, less by bike, and 5 minutes by bus.
Casabedda is a lovely property, very comfortable and very nicely set up with all the amenities we could need. Gianni and Valentina are very generous and looked after us very well. As others have mentioned the cupboards already contain lots of basics you may need at the start of your holiday. On top of that the fridge was full of lots of lovely drinks, there was a very nice bottle of wine waiting for us and we were even provided with lots of bottles of water, which was great as we didn't have a car and it was extremely hot when we arrived, so it was very helpful not to have to carry them. As a previous guest has said, this is indeed hospitality with a 10!
The view from the terrace out to sea is fantastic and we spent lots of time fascinated to watch all the boats as well as people fishing, swimming and walking and cycling by. Cycling and walking to and from the house are both really nice as there is a dedicated cycle and pedestrian path. Lots of people use this and it feels perfectly safe walking or cycling back to the house even late at night. We used the very nearby Holidays pizzeria several times. The pizzas were delicious and the service very friendly and helpful. The small Spa supermarket near the house is convenient to use - uphill on the way but downhill coming back with the shopping, which is great! This shop does shut in mid-September, but there are others open in Casuzze and of course at Marina di Ragusa. We liked Marina di Ragusa and the whole area very much but we particularly liked going to the beach at Casuzze, which was quieter and less of a 'resort'. We went through the village and out the other side a little to the beach at Lido Selene (there is a sign on the village road when you come to it). There is a great beach bar there where you can have a delicious and very good value lunch (a range of pasta dishes as well as grilled fish or just panini), or coffee, drinks, breakfast pastries etc. We only found this in the second week of our holiday and wish we had done so sooner. This may be closed after the end of September, we forgot to ask. Swimming from the rocks opposite the house can be fantastic too, the water is really fresh and clean and it can be very tranquil, but it does need to be reasonably calm so that you can get out of the water again easily. When it is like that it is really lovely to cross the road early in the morning for the first swim.
You can get the timetable for the local Tumino buses from the internet or just ask in the Tourist Office. This is in the Municipale in Marina di Ragusa. Just keep on walking from the bar Stella Marina which you will see as you walk in, and the Municipale is on the left hand side 5 minutes further on. The staff in the information office are really friendly and helpful and will talk to you in English if you don't speak Italian. We found the bus service to be generally very reliable, although the bus can be up to 10 minutes either late, or in the low season early, so best to allow for this. The only problem is finding the bus stops because they are not marked! The bus will stop at Holidays Pizzeria, very near the house, for going in Casuzze direction, and just to the left of the Spa supermarket up the hill for going into the Marina (you will see an AST bus stop sign here). You do need to stick your arm out for it to stop, and be aware that at the pizzeria it sometimes comes along the coast and sometimes down the hill from the supermarket, so look out both ways. From Casuzze the bus goes on to Punta Secca and from the Marina it goes on to Ragusa itself, so both are easy to get to. It normally stops at obvious places like supermarkets, the above mentioned Lido and so on. You can buy the tickets on the buses. From Ragusa you can get AST buses to Modica and Scicli but for these you need to get the tickets from the bar at Ragusa bus station before you get on the bus, and this is also the case for local buses to Ragusa Ibla. It's helpful to be aware that the local bus number 33 to Ragusa Ibla leaves the bus station about 5 mins usually after the Tumino bus from the Marina arrives, so you need to run to the bar for the ticket unless you want to wait another hour, or you can get the local bus number 11 which only goes part of the distance. This is fine if you are ok to walk the rest of the way. Ibla, Modica and Scicli are all beautiful.
At the end of our stay Gianni drove us to the airport in Comiso, which was again typical of the kind and friendly help which we received. The only problem was that we wish we didn't have to leave! We would definitely stay at Casabedda again and we would definitely recommend it to our friends. Thank you Gianni and Valentina.

“Sunny days and moonlight nights!”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A great place to sit and enjoy the sunshine and ocean views from the balcony. Peaceful location away from the main Marina di Ragusa city centre which is about a 1 KM walk. Private parking out front for your car off the street. There is a road out front but only local traffic and one way was turned into a bike lane during the time we visited. Lots of entertaining views of boats and people biking and walking along the sea shore. The apartment is spacious and has a fully equipped kitchen, full sized fridge, a gas stove and lots of pots, pans and dishes. Even sharp knives for food preparation. Wifi is excellent and fast. Big TV and lots of channels with some English ones like BBC etc. The owner Gianni was very responsive to our emails and texts. He met us when we arrived and there was a fridge full of beer and a nice bottle of red wine! Well worth the price you pay. A great place to stay!

I don't really know if I'm lucky or what but ,even this time I met 2 special persons. It's always a pleasure when this happens and I learned something new from theme. I liked their way to travel, their attitude, their smile, their way to leave everything in order , their way to be friendly and much more. I can only say a thing : if you will meet , one day , Wayne and his wife, offer Wayne a glass of wine and his wife a cold beer and find the time to listen to them, you will be " captured ". More than super recommended from Casabedda.

“A most pleasureable stay”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have stayed in many apartments in many countries but none with such close proximity to the ocean. Instantly relaxing this apartment was second to none. Excellent value for money and such friendly and helpful owners we had no need to worry about anything. Gazing into a fridge full of beers plus a bottle of wine waiting to be drunk is music to the traveller I'm sure many would agree. Our 8 year old son Thomas loved the free WiFi and the regular visits to Holiday's the local tasty pizzeria with large beers for mom and dad of course! Day trips to Ragusa Ibla, Noto and Mount Etna made a change from the delightful sandy beaches where we made good friends and relaxed in the shallow waters of the sea. Enjoyed the new cycle/pedestrian route outside the apartment too as traffic reduced greatly resulting in little noise. We would have liked more time to explore Marina di Ragusa at night as this is when it truly comes alive but otherwise a truly memorable holiday. Thank you Gianni and family for everything and especially for your hospitality. Sicily is beautiful.

My guests was simply what every host could desire. Perfect communication, they've respected casabedda as their house , everything was in order and clean and this made me save a lot of time. I can surly say Louise and her family are not tourists but travellers , and there's a big difference in that for me. I feel luky to meet them , they will be always welcome at my house. Super recommended from Casabedda.

We've rented a lot of holiday apartments and this is one of the nicest. We like to travel light so a washing machine is a must and we like to have a nice view for breakfast/ early evening drinks so Casabedda seemed to fit the bill and our expectations were exceeded . Beautifully decorated ,spotlessly clean and very well appointed, we could not have asked for anything more. Great location for Montalbano spotting , Punta Secca ,Scicli,Ragusa Ibla all within short driving distance and Marina Rgusa centre just a pleasant 10/15 minute stroll along the seafront. Really enjoyed our stay and would wholeheartedly recommend
