"Modern beachside apartment in a peaceful suburb"

We had a most pleasant and relaxing stay at this apartment and thoroughly recommend it.

It is in a quiet block with a lovely, verdant courtyard. The top floor apartment is modern, very well decorated and equipped with far more facilities than usual e.g. a washing machine, an insect-zapping fan, DVDs for the DVD player, a hammock, bathrobes, a cot, a high chair for babies/toddlers etc. The owner thoughtfully provided an international mains plug adapter, spare batteries for remote controls and a welcome pack of milk, bottled water, fruit juice, wine, biscuits etc. She was very keen to make it a comfortable experience and gave us many practical tips about the area.

This apartment is right by the sea in the centre of Mondello and has a partial sea view from its balcony. On a couple of very hot days, there was an unpleasant smell from the nearby rocks on the shoreline but this was localised to a few metres of the shoreline and did not affect the apartment at all. There was plenty of free parking right outside the apartment during our mid-October stay.

Mondello is one of the most pleasant and peaceful suburbs of Palermo and on a direct 25 minute bus route to the city centre. It has a good selection of cafes, restaurants, shops, beaches and a pleasant walk along the promenade to the Art Nouveau pier.

"Wonderful stay in Mondello"

We have stayed at this wonderful home this July and have enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment is on the top floor of a charming villa with a well-kept garden. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and well equipped, plenty of storage space and attractive furnished. The terrace is wonderful, you are surrounded by green and you can even see the sea.
The location is perfect, as you can easily reach everything on foot.
Mondello is a perfect place for a holiday, especially with children, the beach is spacious and the sea wonderful and the city of Palermo is just a 20 minutes bus ride away. The owner is charming and helpful and the communication was easy.
We've enjoyed our stay and can warmly recommend Gabbiano House.

La casa si trova in vicino alla piazzetta di Mondello proprio di fronte al mare, la posizione è splendida e dalla grande terrazza privata comodamente arredata si gode un panorama magnifico; l'appartamento è confortevole, comodo e pulitissimo, inoltre è arredato con molto gusto ed ha tutto ciò che occorre per godere di una piacevole vacanza.
La padrona di casa disponibile ed accogliente è pronta a soddisfare eventuali esigenze.
Siamo stati benissimo e qualora ne avessimo l'occasione ci ritorneremmo molto volentieri.
Grazie di tutto.

"Perfect accomodation for a couple to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the sea in May but remaining close to the city"

The house is located in an elegant setting surrounded by the green, near the charming village of Mondello and 20 meters from the sea.
The house offers all the facilities required for a pleasant and independent stay (e.g. full equiped kitchen).
In addition, the kindness and discretion of the owner have been an added value of our stay in Gabbiano House.
In this context, we enjoyed the tranquility of the place and the proximity of the sea, but still being just 5-6 km away from the heart of the city of Palermo (quite well contected by bus).

"A bit run down but accommodating"

The emails leading up to our arrival were very prompt and helpful. The location of the property is great. Very close to the beach and a few minutes walk from Mondello centre (lots of shops and restos)… More

To the knowledge of Mrs. Carolina: Mondello was a swampy area that was reclaimed in an exemplary way in 1800, hence the constant presence of mosquitoes as long as temperatures are as high as in October this year, where the temperatures except for some downpour are maintained between 25 ° and 33 ° C temperatures due to waves of sirocco wind from africa desert, who famously brings warm and sand also inside the houses. The conscious travelers are provided with mosquito spray in these cases.
The fact that the house was dirty, there were complaints from the lady, after two days of their stay, so it was promptly sent the maid to clean the house again. Point out that the one year old child at the time of check in at home was so dirty, that the lady was embarrassed of the hygienic conditions of their child, for which I doubt that the child is able to annoy the presence of sand, given the conditions in which he was held by the parents.
