“Wish our stay had been longer”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Five of us spent several days at Residence Schuler Apartment C. Getting to the apartment was quite convoluted but Claudio made certain we had detailed instructions and made himself available to meet us if we got lost.

The apartment is in an excellent location for quick access to Umberto, the Main Street in Taormina. It is necessary to go down stairs and part of a hill to get there but all of us could manage (there were two seniors among us). One member of our group has mild mobility issues but was not deterred from participating in our daily activities.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The master bedroom has a spectacular view of the sea and Mount Etna. We all had that view form the two terraces, too. One of the other bedrooms was a very good size and had an ensuite bathroom. The third bedroom was small but we knew that ahead of time from the photos on the website. There was a second bathroom and that did cause some inconveniences because there were 4 adults using it. There was lots of hot water.

Claudio was available to suggest restaurants and arranged our trip to Catania airport. I would highly recommend the Schuler apartment. The only thing I would change is the length of time we spent there. A few days was just not enough to do Taormina justice.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Perfect location, only a short walk to Corso Umberto and a view of Mt. Etna and the Med from balcony as spectacular as anything you can imagine. .

The owner/manager, Claudio, is very attentive to the needs of all of his quests. We were there for over a month and we could not have enjoyed it more. We will return. We were in Residence C but you can't go wrong in any of the units.

“Epitomises what excellent rental accomodation should be!!”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We booked here for 3 days in early October, but extended it for a further day. The owner Claudio, is a really nice guy, and will be helpful in any way possible to you. We were having a little difficulty finding the apartment, but rang him and he came and led us there. Apartment is located above Taormina, with fantastic views of the bay, Giardini Naxos, Mount Etna, and even Castelmola!! Although it occupies such an exalted position, in less than 5 minutes you are down on the main street. The apartment was very sizeable, and equipped with all the necessary equipment (cooker, dishwasher, fridge, washing m/c, etc.,) together with a great array of utensils. We were given a Residents pass for our car, which allowed us to park safely just outside the building. Parking in Taormina is almost non existant, so this is a big bonus. You will probably not need your car, as visits to Castelmola, Giardini Naxos etc., are all better undertaken by public bus, of which there are many. Main bedroom is monsterous, with an entire wall of glass, allowing you to supervise the comings and goings of the giant luxury liners in the bay, from your bed!!
There are shutters and fly screens on all windows, so total darkness in the bedroom can be achieved, even during the day. Sleep is guaranteed!! Hot water and lots of it, is available all day from a very efficient boiler. A good size Supermarket is based at the bottom of the street stairs (circa 4 mins), and there is a fishmonger beside it offering fresh sole, bream, bass, salmon, everything you could possibly want. Television with CNN (possibly more, as we did not really switch on), and wifi is also available free.
I have rented villas both Summer and Winter skiing, throughout Europe, but this was one of the best I have encountered. Well done Claudio, and I hope lots of Irish/English visitors get to enjoy your great facilities!!

This is the most beautiful apartment Really spacious and well equipped.
The balcony and large bedroom have views to die for
Well equipped kitchen and the location is perfect.5 minutes down some steps to the main street.We were all in our 60's and we managed them you just take it easy.
The owner Claudio and his driver arranged trips and took us out and about for a very reasonable charge.
Don't miss this one you will have made the right choice.it was just stunning in every way.

Stayed in Apartment C, D and E for two weeks in April and had a fabulous time and experience. Claudio was great and most helpful when encountered problems with car rentals, driving and directions. I highly recommed Residence Schuler for small and/or large family gatherings as accommodations are very spacious and have most of the amenities you find in a hotel. If I ever travel to Taormina again I would definitely stay at Residence Schuler. Also Taormina is a great base to explore eastern Sicily. Thank you again Claudio for a once in a lifetime vacation.
