“Not quite what we were led to believe..”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The heading on the page describing the property says..

Castellammare del Golfo| Holiday Rental House – 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

... and then "This centrally located 250 square meter apartment ..." And that is what it is, an APARTMENT, not a house. In fact there is another apartment below this one and yet another round the side of the house. Entrances to the 3 apartments are separate and the "huge garden" is obviously not part of this apartment - it was used by the children in the apartment below when we were there.

CONS
Only two of the 4 bedrooms had air conditioning.
The wifi was barely adequate and kept dropping out.
There was only one sun lounger.

You definintely need a car. It's a steep walk to the nearest beach (not the best one) and decent sized supermarkets are in town several kilometers away.

The coordinates of the apartment building are ..
38.020033, 12.900882
To see exactly where the apartment is, pop them into Google and click on maps.

On arrival, we were welcomed warmly by Elena and her mother and provided with wine and cakes. The apartment was fully equipped, in fact it was more like a home that the family had just moved out of.

On balance the apartment was adequate but not what we expected and we felt the description could have been more accurate.

Liked best: The large balcony
Liked least: Not receiving accurate information about the apartment and its facilities

Es wäre gut gewesen, die Beschreibung auch zu lesen, bevor man in der Bewertung schreibt es handelt sich lediglich um ein Appartement. Denn dort steht es handelt sich um ein Appartement in einer Villa. Nichts anderes steht dort. Der Strand ist 300 Meter entfernt, den viele als einen der schönsten einstufen. Aber selbst wenn er nicht den Ansprüchen der Mieter entsprochen hat, hat das nichts mit der Qualität der Unterkunft zu tun. Supermärkte gibt es zahlreiche im 1 Kilometer entfernten Castellammare. Und die Unterkunft ist auch korrekt eingezeichnet. Für die geografische Beschaffenheit der Ortschaft (am Berg) kann auch die Unterkunft nichts. Es wäre schön gewesen, wenn siech Bewerter bei ihren Beschreibungen auf die Unterkunft beschränken würden. Zumal diese ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis bietet. Schade, dass so eine besondere Unterkunft schlecht gemacht wird.

We stayed at this wonderful house for 4 nights in late November. There were 4 adults and 4 children. We were all very comfortable in this house and truly loved the view. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle (although in late November there isn't much of that anywhere). We felt very safe and taken care of. They even thought to put a few items in the fridge and snack items for our children since we flew in so late.

“Comfortable, clean, with a lovely view of the sea”

A great house - 4 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, living room and a dinning room - all extremely clean, incredibly well-equipped with everything you will and won't need during your stay.
All amenities work, great contact with the owners, quiet neighborhood and a view to die for.
Also, pretty close to the Castellammare beach.

one tip: we would recommend renting a car, since there are no sidewalks around this part of Castellamare.

“Spacious, homely, spotlessly clean, but hire a car to make the most!”

We hired a car and were soooo glad we hired it as you get to see much more. We had an easy, picturesque drive from Palermo Airport. We were later going to collect another two from Trapani Birgi Airport. Both airports were very easy to negotiate and there were no traffic wardens rushing you off too early to load luggage. Two members of the family, Elena and Piero, met us at a nearby landmark & they took us a short way to the apartment to make sure we knew where everything was. This huge apartment is obviously still a much loved family home and we found it great for the four of us with 80m sq exterior space for al-fresco meals and BBQ's. The interior accommodation is traditionally decorated and furnished so don't expect an Ikea-esque contemporary styles. Some fittings are charmingly 'tired', which we all quite liked. The whole place was equipped with everything but a kettle so ask for one if you need it. There are 4 double rooms so 8 sleeping are easily accommodated. There were 4 of us and we could lose each other for short periods in the 250m sq. 2 x En suites, both large enough for a couple to use simultaneously. The lounge has a sea-view picture window and is 12m x 5m approx. but we had good enough weather to not need it much. The tiny TV was not used either. We would return. There is a resident Labrador-cross in the downstairs apartment who loves to play and is not at all aggressive but might scare non-dog lovers and small children when boisterous.The information/direction sheets provided upon request, are perfect, even down to where to shop as it is obviously cheaper self-catering. Local supermarkets were ideal for supplies. We were offered a recommended private tour-guide too, but we explored and found the roads easy with online maps along with a SatNav from home enough to find any beach, shop, restaurant or monument we wanted to find. I could have written another 1000 words but I'll conclude with a warning that you are on a hill that would not suit elderly or lower half disabled folk without transport. It is hot and hilly so hire a car! All in all, well worth the money so go!

The villa is gorgeous, very large and spacious with a lovely Sicilian décor. It is suitable for anyone; a large group of friends or a family with young children. It has all the amenities of home and Wi-Fi. The location is great, about 20 -25 minutes from Palermo and 7 mins walk to the beach and pretty much central to the sites of Sicily. There are also plenty of restaurants close to the villa. The panoramic views from the villa are spectacular and the landlords were the friendliest and most accommodating people. Would recommend 100%.
