“A real Gem”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This accommodation was the best we experienced in Sicily. The apartment could not be faulted, it had all that Holiday Lettings had promised which was a good deal better than other "... B&B" rentals. This was clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, decent bathroom good quality linen, Sat. TV. The apartment is well serviced being close to supermarket, butcher, general produce store, close to everything a visitor would want, tourist attractions etc. To be able to sit and watch the changing faces of Mt. Etna from the Terrace of the apartment was a joy. Although the apartment in situated in a busy part of the township. street noise is not intrusive. This apartment was the jewel in a very sad Sicilian crown. Mr Rando was a pleasure to deal with, he spoke v/good English, and was more than happy to make our stay enjoyable.

“If I am in Taormina this is where I want to stay!”

I rented Ezio's apartment for the month of June, 2014, while I was attending language school in Taormina. The welcome from Ezio, and his care and attention to my needs while I was there, was excellent. The situation of the apartment is the best you could ask for in Taormina. It is just off the Corso Umberto. There is everything you need within a couple of minutes walk; shopping, bars, restaurants etc. Any problem I had Ezio dealt with immediately. He was very attentive to all of my needs. I was staying for a month and was looking for 'home' comforts.

The terrace is wonderful, with a fabulous view of Mount Etna. You can watch the world go by from the terrace! The apartment is very spacious and comfortable and the WIFI worked very well. The big bed was new and very comfortable, something one does not always get when renting. The bathroom is not that large but has really good shower and washing machine. There is a fine kitchen if you wish to cook and eat in.

What I liked very much was that when I arrived the apartment was equipped with many of the products that make renting very expensive for a short period of time such as lots washing powder and cleaning products. There were plenty of towels and bed linen. The kitchen had olive oil, tea, coffee, sugar, and other things that make life so much simpler if they are there when you arrive. Ezio thank you for all of that.

I also met Ezio's Mum, a lovely lady, who helps him to look after the apartment. I hope we may meet again.

If I return to Taormina this is where I will stay.

Thank you Ezio

We stayed in Casa Rando 2 weeks ago for one week. We loved every day of it! The owner was super friendly, even came to pick us up from the busstation and brought us also to our carrental on our last day in Taormina. He gave us tips on where to go and what to do. Best to communicate with him is per sms: email might take a couple of days.
The apartment is very nice: perfect location in the middle of the center, very spacious, light and with a big roofterrace.
