This apartment is close to the inland border of Castellamare, so you can be on the motorway to Palermo, Trapani, or the South Coast in a matter of minutes. It also means you are spared the narrow streets of the old town. We found the apartment very comfortable for the four of us, and there was room for another friend who sadly had to cancel her visit.
We didn't need to try out the air conditioning (it was April), but the plant seems well specified, and was able to provide backup heating on one cold evening.
The owners (who live above this rental) were very helpful; they showed us where to park (behind the building, out of sight from the street). This parking is not suitable for low-riding sports cars, but I had no trouble making it onto the drive with a rented Renault Clio.
If I were returning to the area, I would have no hesitation (well one; there is no dishwasher) in taking this apartment again. And eat again (for pennies) at the Old Station Pizzeria, a couple of hundred yards down the hill towards the town center and supermarket.
