The apartment is well sit...

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well situated, only 10 minutes walking from a very nice beach, furniture is more or less OK but the kitchen utensils are absolutely insufficient or even poorly represented. But in spite of that we had a good week until the last day when the owners wife came for inspection of our cleaning job and told us that the job was not well done, while we actually did a perfect job, 2 hours sweeping and mopping all floors, includig the staircase, etc. That was very disappointing and not very sympatic at all. Also it would be nice if the owner would explain some things at the arrival, like how the cooker/oven works and that there is alo a storage room on the balcony (with plastic terrace chairs and a fan) that we only found the last day, 6 days to late. With a few minor approvals this place would be even a lot better and make the stay a great lot nicer.

Excellent place for our S...

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place for our September visit! Nice house with peaceful surroundings and nearby beaches. Friendly welcome and good service. The grocery store was not as close as we thought but you do need a car/motorbike/bike over here anyway.

Just one word for improvement - the kitchen equipment (proper knives, frying pans) could be a little better. However, we managed to do everything we wanted anyway, and the location of Cefalu as a "base" is just perfect for driving around the island. Not to mention that Cefalu itself is very romantic and beautiful. Thank you for a nice vacation!

Vacanza relax

  • 5 of 5

L appartamento dove abbiamo soggiornato e' ampio e comodo ( eravamo in sei), uno spazio della casa che ci e' piaciuto molto e' la veranda, dotata di cucina e tavolo dove poter mangiare o passare la sera in tranquillita, oltre alla doccia esterna molto comoda e funzionale. Abbiamo trascorso una settimama di mare rilassante, meravigliosa la caletta di ghiaia e scogli raggiungibile in 5 minuti a piedi dall appartamento. I titolari cordiali e disponibili.
