My husband and I traveled with our baby to Mondello to visit my relatives. I had never used AirBnB in Italia before so I was a little nervous and asked Dario about a million questions before we even arrived. Dario responded so kindly and quickly to each inquiry. We arrived late at night to check-in but Dario accommodated as he lives just upstairs. It was great to have a host so close but also who gave us as much privacy as we wanted. When we arrived we were starving. He graciously had left us some fruit, beer, juice and water in the fridge but we really needed dinner so Dario helped us order pizza from a nearby restaurant and even delivered it to our door when they came! Talk about a host going above and beyond! The apartment itself is so well decorated and much larger than we had thought from the photos. It's a great mix of modern and antique furniture. And my goodness, the view from the balcony is absolutely amazing and it's so large. We could have spent every second out there taking in the view if it weren't of the mosquitoes! Note to self, next time bring some bug spray! Parking was just below the house in a secure location, however the drive is steep and narrow (which is pretty typical for Italy). But if that is too much for you, there was also ample parking on the street. One thing worth mentioning is that the balcony might not be safe if you have a toddler running around as the slabs are very wide and a baby could climb out. This wasn't an issue for us as our baby isn't walking yet. The living room also has a couple of different elevated sections (one step up or down) which again could be a little tough with a young one running around but perfectly fine for adults and children over 5 I would think. Another positive experience was on my birthday. Even though the house rules had said no parties, he allowed me to have a few cousins over for a couple of hours for cake (all quite tame but he could have said no and didn't which I really appreciated.) We invited him over for cake and he came and was really such a lovely person. Finally the location, you can walk down to the sea and the restaurants within ten minutes! There's a market by the sea for quick essentials or for a full shop, a supermarket is only about a 10 minute drive away. Overall, we would definitely recommend Dario's apartment in Mondello. For the price, we were simply blown away by the view, the location, the size of the apartment and the kindness of its host! Thank you for a wonderful stay, Dario. We'll be back! Hopefully next time for even longer than 10 days!
