I stayed at Bordonaro 98 from September 12-19,2009. It is a great apartment. Entrance on the street side is narrow, next to the restaurant (but so are all doors there).
The perfect base for a holiday begins undoubtedly from the choice of the accommodation and our strength lies precisely in this aspect. An extensive and careful selection of properties able to satisfy even the most demanding customer: apartments in the typical medieval town centre of Cefalú only a few meters from the beautiful sandy beach, for those who want to live in the heart of the Norman town. The historical center is the heart of the location, characterized by the presence of many shops, supermarkets, restaurants and the famous longbeach within walking distance.
Our apartments are equipped with all the comforts: kitchen (or kitchenette), TV. Bed linen and towels, air conditioning and some of them have Wi-Fi
No charge if you cancel at least 1 week before your arrival
100% charge for late cancellations and no show

I stayed at Bordonaro 98 from September 12-19,2009. It is a great apartment. Entrance on the street side is narrow, next to the restaurant (but so are all doors there). You have two stairs to walk up to an iron door (key provided) and then down the hall is the apartment on the right, just before the next stairs. You enter in a living room with a sofa, kitchen table, TV etc. Kitchen is semi-open. Bedroom is upstairs (open to living room, vide type, great bed!). Completely renovated and very clean. Balcony is at the front overlooking the street. It has a table and two chairs on it. It is really only 25m to the small beach and the great restaurant there. Lots of Alimentari around for your daily shopping and the Piazza del Duomo (the main square) is a 5-7 minutes walk (uphill though but very doable). Perfect location and perfect apartment for a single or couple.
The only "complaint" I had is the shower. Bathroom itself is big enough, with all what you will need (including washing machine), but the shower is simply too small. I am not a very big guy, but I had problems getting in and out of the shower through the doors. Simply to narrow. If you are heavy-set, you won't get in. While showering I was afraid I would knock out the plastic sides with my elbows, turning around. The drain seemed to be stuck with something (hairs?). Water was not draining quickly enough. I could not shower for more than 2 or 3 minutes without risking the water to overflow and flooding the bathroom floor. Plus the shower handle was coming off the wall. Water pressure was low too, so just a miserable stream. It all looked very cheap. That really needs to be fixed! My advice? Get rid of the bidet (who uses those anyway, except our French friends maybe) and install a bigger (and better!) shower. This is the only minor point in the apartment though.
However, if that is fixed, or you can live with that, then this is a perfect apartment for a reasonable price in beautiful Cefalu.
P.S. be aware that garbage and empty bottles from the restaurants in the street are being picked up between 7-8am.....But that is what you get at a prime location.
