This home is amazing! Everything is brand new inside and outside. Two full baths and two king beds were perfect for our group. We didn't allow enough time to stay at the house and enjoy the porch and the views. We only stayed 3 days and should have spent a full week. The home is a short drive from the water, but the view was absolutely perfect! The retaining wall blocks out homes that are lower and closer to the water. The landscaping is beautiful as well. Google Maps did bring us to the property through some areas that we would have avoided at night, when coming in from the airport at dark. The host was right on time despite our late entry and was very accommodating. He had restaurant suggestions and places to tour - he shared pins for many of these locations.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Villa Artemis in mid-October. The property is in a marine protected area within an active horticultural community. It is very well maintained, clean and secure, and has direct water front. Our hosts were most gracious, responding quickly to our questions, giving advice on travel and showing us the locations of a wonderful café and a supermarket. A car is a necessity and it is a great location to use as a base for day-trips or just relaxing on the spacious first floor balcony and enjoying the spectacular sea views. It’s away from the noise and commotion of Syracuse and Ortygia yet is within a short 15 min. drive to the city parking areas. It was just what we wanted.
