Some evaluations of our friends that shared with us a bit of their life. Thank you all!


  • Sven dalla Germania - Dicembre 2019 - Das Apartment / die Höhle von Paolo ist wirklich ein Traum. Einzigartig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist nahezu perfekt. Zu Fuß ist man in 5 min mitten im Centro Storico. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

  • Felix & Janet da New York - Dicembre 2019 - Look no further, THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE NUMBER ONE SPOT!!! Three weeks in Italy and carefully selected AirBnBs and this was the winner spot of the whole trip! Absolutely outstanding in every sense of the word. And that bathroom (wow!), one of a kind shower. You're going to want to stay an extra night just for that alone. Pictures usually tell the story, but this time they were not enough to show the true beauty of the property. Simply OUTSTANDING!! Much better than anticipated, almost magical. The house is part of a cave and has extremely beautiful features, at an amazing price. Probably one of the cleanest, with the best towels, perfect water pressure (hot water), perfect heaters/ACs, and very reliable WiFi. The location is ideal and very close to all major restaurants/attractions. A true winner in all categories. The hospitality is outstanding. I felt at home, as if I was staying at my friend's parent's home. Lovely couple will do their absolute best to make you feel loved. To access the house you can park on the main road (don't follow G Maps), which is just 2 flights of stairs away. Plenty of street parking available. I feel very strongly that this is the best place to stay in the area without a doubt. If you find something better then Paolo and his wife listed a second spot :-) Thank you very much for the amazing experience!

  • Candace dal Canada - Dicembre 2019 - We loved the spacious cave and the town of Modica. The cave was one of the most unique stays we had in two months of travel in Italy. It is very comfortable, parking is easy and once you find the place all else is amazing. Just note that you can not drive to the address but must park below, there is good free parking but the address in Google will not take you to there place. Anna sends you information to get to the parking and then they lead you up to the wonderful cave. PS the shower is as good as everyone says!! Thanks for our amazing stay!!

  • Brendan dalla Nuova Zelanda - Ottobre 2019 - What a unique experience … an apartment in a cave … ! It was wonderful. The apartment is very well situated, just 10 minutes walk from the very stylish Corso Umberto I where we found a wonderful wine shop, a lovely cafe and a fabulous restaurant for lunch (Cappero). Easy (free) parking on the street although there is a bit of a climb to reach the apartment. Modica is perfectly positioned for day trips to Ragusa and Scicli. Others have mentioned the wondrous shower; it lives up to its reputation … ! Thank you, Paolo & Simona ...

  • Fred dalla Francia - Ottobre 2019 - Logement recommandé. Original, propre, bien situé pour profiter de la ville. Des hôtes attentifs.... Et un petit cadeau de bienvenue pour nous mettre l'eau à la bouche.

  • Lilla dall'Ungheria - Settembre 2019 - Wonderful little cave house in great location. We loved how inside the apartment it feels a bit like we are still wondering on the streets of Modica. Great attention to details, lovely little kitchen and the best part is the bathroom. Having shower here is like standing under a waterfall. We'll definitely book this apartment again, when we visit Modica! Thanks so much for the experience!

  • Cassidy dal Canada - Agosto 2019 - This was an excellent place to stay, very close to restaurants and parking. Thanks so much for everything, including coming to our rescue when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment!! We really appreciate your care and hospitality and we loved our time in Modica :)

  • Eve dall'Inghilterra - Agosto 2019 - What a gorgeous little place! Really central to the action in Modica, which is a lovely friendly little town. The bedrooms were beautiful and the beds really comfy, the bathroom is so stylish with perhaps the best shower I’ve ever been in. Highly recommended and great value for money

  • Theodoros dall'Inghilterra - Agosto 2019 - Amazing place, strongly recommended! 2 min away from Modica's centre.

  • Eleonora da Firenze - Luglio 2019 - Casa nella roccia spettacolare, curata nel dettaglio, con tutti i confort per un soggiorno da sogno!! Ottima comunicazione, consigliatissimo!!!

  • Arianna da Milano - Luglio 2019 - Alloggio suggestivo ricavato dalla roccia. Simona e sua sorella Anna sono state impeccabili nell'accoglienza. Lo consigliamo sicuramente per un pernotto diverso dsl solito in una cornice inconsueta.

  • Nic dall'Inghilterra - Luglio 2019 - The location was perfect for walking around Modica, and it was very quiet (no traffic) and comfortable. There was lots of space and the apartment was beautifully furnished. We loved its unusual style and the way it was built into the cliff. The bathroom was splendid. We probably would have found the apartment difficult to locate when we arrived in Modica, but we were met at the bus station by the host, which was wonderful after a long hot journey.

  • Gennady dalla Russia - Giugno 2019 - Great and unique place! There is no another one like this. An extremely esclusive experience. Comfortable, cozy, well located. Great hosts, welcoming service. Love this place and I want to come again!

  • Sarah dalla Germania - Giugno 2019 - Die etwas andere Unterkunft...Sehr coole, durchdachte Wohnung/Höhle. Die Rückseite der Wohnung ist in Fels gebaut und gerade im Badezimmer kommt das Höhlengefühl durch. Die Lage der Wohnung ist perfekt, da es ca 5 Minuten Fußweg zur Flaniermeile von Modica sind. Paolo und Simona sind immer erreichbar und sehr flexibel beim Check-In/Out...tolle Vermieter

  • Sylvia dal Canada - Maggio 2019 - This place is amazing! My family and I stayed here for 3 days and loved every minute of it. Whoever planned the design and lighting of the renovations of this troglodyte was a genius. The bathroom is gorgeous, I had probably the best shower of my life in there! The shower is built into the side of the rocky cave, with only a glass door to get in. There a huge raindrop shower head, it feels like your showering underneath a waterfall! I highly recommend this place and it will definitely be my first choice if I ever return to Modica.

  • Karen dalla Florida - Maggio 2019 - Amazing cave house in a great location in The heart of Modica. It was a great home base for visiting the surrounding cities. The apartment was clean and had nice touches. We enjoyed our stay!

  • Sonni da Messina - Ottobre 2018 - Piccola casa nella roccia caratteristica ed incantevole a due passi dal centro e con parcheggio gratuito proprio di fronte casa. È stata il puntino sulla i del nostro soggiorno nella città del cioccolato.

  • Laura da Padova - Ottobre 2018 - L'appartamento è stato ristrutturato in maniera veramente bella. rispecchia l'autenticità delle abitazioni locali storiche associando intelligentemente lati moderni alla roccia viva. Anna e il suo compagno ci hanno accolti come degli amici ed è stato super piacevole passare una piccola parte del nostro viaggio in Sicilia come loro ospiti. Verremo sicuramente a trovarvi ancora!

  • Lim da Singapore - Ottobre 2018 - Great little apartment, well stocked and equipped with modern amenities. Surprising since the apartment is partly built into the hillside in a tightly packed neighborhood at the base of Modica Alta. It's an easy walk to the base of Modica from which tours and walks up into Modica Alta originate. Host Marco was friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic and helpful.

  • Vincenzo da Montecatini Terme - Settembre 2018-L'appartamente è veramente bello,un mix di antico e raffinatezza moderna. il grande bagno scavato nella roccia è unico. L'illuminazione dal basso delle pareti rocciose esaltano la bellezza dell'appartamento. Tranquillissimo.

  • Gaia da Milano - Settembre 2018 -Soggiornare in questo appartamento è stata un' esperienza indimenticabile! E' scavato nella roccia come molte case tipiche della rocca di Modica, ma l' arredamento moderno e i dettagli curatissimi gli danno un' atmosfera unica e romantica. In pochi minuti di passeggiata si arriva al Corso Umberto I. Un dettaglio da non trascurare è l' accoglienza calorosa di Simona, che gestisce il vicoletto di Maela con passione e fa sentire i suoi ospiti davvero a casa. Consigliatissimo!!!

  • Ilbibu da Bari - Settembre 2018 -La casa è in un meraviglioso e caratteristico contesto di viuzze. Interni e arredamento di grande gusto. La roccia in camera e soprattutto nella doccia rendono la casa davvero speciale.

  • Martin dall'Argentina - giugno 2018 - Very nice and different place. Hosts are very nice and helpful people.

  • Adnan dalla Svizzera - settembre 2018 - This must've been my best AirBnB stay so far. The owners are incredibly nice and very accurate in terms of communication. As it was very hot when I arrived, it was incredibly attentive that they prepared a big bottle of water for me. A little chocolate as present from Modica was something I was very happy about. All in all, nothing to complain about, highly recommendable - not only because of the great experience of actually sleeping in a cave! :)

  • Conxi da Barcellona - agosto 2018 - Soggiornare in una grotta non è stata una esperienza qualunque. L'appartamento è davvero carino molto curato nei particolari. Modica è un posto davvero incantevole consigliamo caldamente un soggiorno perché ne vale veramente la pena. Naturalmente nel vicoletto di Maela un posto che vi sorprenderà. Un ringraziamento particolare a Simona per la splendida ospitalità.
