Lovely apartment , very central but still in a very quiet area. Paola and Max was so nice, Paola brought us extra towels to the beach when she heard we didn't bring it. Light nice and very clean apartment. I'll be back :)
Couldn't be happier with the choice of accommodation for our holiday in Taormina. The apartment was faultless inside (descriptions accurate), and with a lovely balcony with views to the sea and (partially) to Etna. Central to the many fantastic bars and restaurants along and around Corso Umberto. 10 mins stroll to Cable Car down to the lovely (busy!) beaches at Mazzaro and Isola Bella. Taormina was great as a base for day trips to Mount Etna (recommend Eddy Tronchet/Legendary Sicily), Siracusa and others (head North for a taste of Sicily within easy reach). Paola and Max were brilliant before and during the holiday with advice and suggestions, arrangements for the transfer to/from airport, scuba dive, Etna trip. The apartment is very secure, being part of Paola's extended family residence, who were also very friendly when you occasionally met! Loved it all. Thanks Paola and Max.

I have just returned from a week at Casa Costa, it is an excellent apartment in a superb location, as it is a stones throw from the Corsa Umberto the hub of Taormina, the Restaurants, Gelato shops and 5 Minutes from the local supermarket.
The apartment is well kitted out, with all you need for your stay and the 2nd bathroom is a bonus in a 2 bed apartment. The terrace is a real plus point with delightful views of the Sea and Etna.
Paola and Max welcomed us in person and provided a welcome pack as it was Sunday and the supermarket was closed.
Casa Costa is great for couples and children alike, but young children need to be supervised on the terrace due to the steps.
Taormina itself is a fantastic location for a holiday and I would thoroughly recommend both the Town and Casa Costa.

Just back from a fantastic week at Casa Costa. The apartment has everything required for a relaxing, enjoyable holiday; it is very well equipped and very clean & comfortable. The terrace is great for meals in the sunshine or just relaxing and enjoying the views of Mount Etna and the coast. The 'extras' provided by Paulo & Max were much appreciated - a supply of food, a bottle of wine, a bowl of fruit , toiletries - so kind and thoughtful. Nothing was too much trouble, when we asked for a sun umbrella Max brought one within hours. The location is perfect; just a few minutes walk from good restaurants ( the fish from the restaurants below the apartment was wonderful) , cafes and shops but quiet and peaceful. The information provided by Paulo on arrival was invaluable for sightseeing and eating out. Would not hesitate to go back.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday staying in the Casa Costa toarmina, from the moment we arrived to we left everything we needed for our stay was there. Max & Paola were there to greet us on our arrival and showed us around their beautiful apartment. They were very helpful providing us with information on restaurant, best pizza & points of interest to see on our stay. As we arrived late it was fantastic to see supplies for us to eat in the fridge which is very kind of Paola & max. The location of the apartment is perfect so close to the main corso umberto street which was handy for us as we had 2 young children. There were 4 adults & 2 children which the apartment was ideal for with plenty of space, the boys had plenty of space play both inside and out. I would highly recommend casa Costa for a wonderful stay if you ever go to visit the beautiful place of toarmina, Sicily. Thanks so much to max & paola 2 perfect hosts, your Irish lodgers from this week x
