Not more than 60 meters from the lungomare, the street that goes true the coast where all the bars, the restaurants, the clubs etc. are situated.

We did not stay at this property after being shown around it. The small ground floor hall/ reception / living room had no natural light. The steep narrow stairs to the next floor opened straight into a bedroom and seating area overlooking the backs of other properties. The narrow stairs continued to a kitchen/dining area and the tiny shower room/ toilet was off the small balcony. There was an extremely strong unpleasant smell in the shower room and the host's husband responded to my query about dealing with the smell by saying we could find another place to stay if we wanted to. On reflection we decided we did not want to stay and had to find other accomodation - not though Wimdu.
We tried to contact Wimdu about this problem immediately and on their urgent line and beyond a message saying they were dealing with it, nothing more has been heard from them. This was 6 days ago and we are now back in the UK. We propose to follow it up next week and expect a full refund.
We found Giardini Naxos a good place to stay - in spite of the somewhat dismissive comments made in some of the guidebooks. It's bustling, well-positioned to visit the surrounding area, and unpretentious. It caters well for tourists, but there seemed to be a real town there as well - which suited us perfectly. It also has the largest and oldest archaeological 'dig' we saw, although the visible remains are somewhat diffuse, and lack the majesty of Syracuse or Taormina.
The house is split over 3 levels - kitchenand terrace on top, bedroom and terrace in the middle, and the sort-of antechamber on the ground floor. It has been recently refurbished to a high spec in 2015, and it is gorgeous - absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway. Due to the open-plan nature of the house, and lack of doors to the stairs, it is not really suitable for small children, or big enough for families.
Tano - our host and Mia's husband - was absolutely fantastic. We could not have asked more from him when it came to the practicalities, and he was convivial company when we bumped in to him in one of the restaurants on the waterfront.
Just round the corner is a great bar called Salamone. It plays good music, serves great ice-cream and has the best bar-nibbles I've ever seen.
It was a nice stay in Mia and Tanos house in Giardini Naxos. We had a very friendly and warm welcome when we arrived. They even set up a plate of fruits in the kitchen. The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. The balcony in the first floor is really nicely done up with a little pavillon and a couch with pillows.
The sea is only two minutes away and there are many shops, restaurants and supermarkets in the neighbourhood.
We had a really nice time there and enjoyed our stay.

We had a lovely stay in Giardini Naxos. The house was perfect for us; it was very comfortable, quiet and spacious (for two people). The proximity to the beach, restaurants and shops was an added bonus. There is plenty of parking along the beach so, we abandoned our rental car for a few days. We loved our very relaxed stay in Giardini Naxos. Mia and Tomo were wonderful hosts; giving us recommendations and tips on good restaurants, tours and directions. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The house is situated in a quiet side street, just a few meters from the beach and to restaurants. It goes over 3 floors: Downstairs living room, in the middle of the master bedroom with balcony and kitchen with top of the bathroom. The stories are interconnected open (no doors). The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Overall, highly recommended.
Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Seitengasse, nur wenige Meter vom Stand und von Restaurants entfernt. Es geht über 3 Stockwerke: Unten ein Wohnzimmer, in der Mitte das Schlafzimmer mit Balkon und zuoberst die Küche mit Bad. Die Stockwerke sind offen miteinander verbunden (keine Türen). Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und verfügt über alles Notwendige. Die Besitzer waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert.
Vi kan varmt rekommendera detta boende. Blev upphämtade av vår trevliga värd Tano på busshållplatsen som tog oss till vårt boende. Vår värd hade verkligen tänkt på allt vad man behövde när man anländer till en lägenhet. Vatten, frukt, en flaska vin i kylen och is i frysen. Allt det du behöver för att kunna diska, torka och handdukar, badhandukar och lakan. Ren och fin lägenhet ett stenkast från havet. Läget kändes perfekt och var tyst på natten. Vi var så nöjda med vår vistelse och boende och vår värd Tano förhöjde den känslan ytterligare med sitt gästvänliga oerhört hjälpsamma sätt!
Erg gastvrij ontvangen. Fijne plek tussen de locale. Strand, boulevard en supermarkt om de hoek. In het huis alles aanwezig. ( ook fleecdekens voor een koude avond en keukengerei te over.
Wir waren eine Woche im Haus von Mia und Tano. Die beiden waren sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeber und haben uns tolle Tipps gegeben. Bei unserer Ankunft war der Kühlschrank mir frischem Obst gefüllt!! Danke vielmals!
Das Haus ist wirklich nahe am Meer und sehr zentral gelegen. Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und alles verlief sehr unkompliziert.
Danke für die tolle Woche!

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana in questo alloggio, la casa è disposta su tre livelli, è arredata in modo piacevole e confortevole, con mobili e combinazioni giuste che danno all'appartamento un insieme funzionale ed armonioso. La posizione dell'immobile è veramente strategica, a poche decine di metri dal lungomare (attrezzato e ricco di locali di ogni tipo), ed a pochi chilometri da Taormina, dall'Etna e tantissimi luoghi che vale la pena visitare. I proprietari ci hanno accolto con grande gentilezza piena di piccole attenzioni, la loro cortesia si è manifestata già prima di conoscerli personalmente, nelle poche comunicazioni mail e telefoniche.
I proprietari (Tano e Mia ) ci hanno dato dei validi suggerimenti per itinerari, locali dove cenare e fare spesa; con grande discrezione, si sono dimostrati molto ospitali e generosi, è stato veramente un piacere conoscerli. Torneremo sicuramente a trovarli. Consiglio quest'alloggio a chiunque voglia soggiornare a Giardini di Naxos.
Ci siamo trovati benissimo in questo bellissimo appartamneto, i proprietari ci hanno accolto benissimo sia al nostro arrivo che alla nostra partenza con una disponibilità da apprezzare, la casa è veramente in ottima condizione ed è tutto perfettamente funzionante.
Per non parlare poi della località situtata, a pochi passi davanti a noi ce la via principale con tanti negozi di ogni tipo e subito dopo cè il mare che tra l'altro si raggiunge dopo due minuti a piedi. E' veramente una casa vacanza da consigliare e sicuramente da non pentirsi.
