Myself and my husband travelled to the island of Ischia with our three kids (aged 7, 5 and 3) this year and spent three weeks at "Da Giusy". We took over the full apartment and absolutely loved our stay! Giusy is a caring, attentive and warm host. She collected us all at the port when we arrived and brought us back to the port the morning we left the island. She made sure the house was fully equipped with kitchen stuff, towels and bedsheets. Three times during our stay she gave us a lovely basket full of vegetables and fruit just picked from the orchard. She cooked us an amazing rabbit dish the day before we left!! This was truly magnificent. Thank you Giusy!!
As far as the house is concerned, it is exactly as described in the ad, if not nicer. The rooms are spacious, there is a lot of outdoors space to eat and relax in the good weather. The kids had plenty of space to run around and play. They really enjoyed the whole experience! A great bonus was the use of the pool. When the kids were tired of going to the beach, we would go for an hour or two to the gorgeous thermal pool of the Hotel Villa Teresa which was located in a beautiful panoramic spot.
What else should I add? Since I am originally from Napoli, even though I have been in Ireland for 14 years and my husband is Irish, I had a few members of my family coming to visit me and calling over to the house. My mother stayed with us for a while and since she decided to stay a little longer than expected, Giusy helped us accommodating her in a lovely en-suite room at her sister-in-law's residence which is located next door to the house. As a result, I had the best of both world as I had my independence but I also had members of my family staying nearby and calling over to the house for breakfast and dinner.
Last, but not least, Giusy gave us a lend of her second car as often as we needed it. This made our stay absolutely superb as it gave us a chance to explore the island and go to different beaches, etc.
In one sentence, I absolutely recommend this holiday house and I am hoping to be able to go to it again and again!!!
