The apartment was fantastic, with magnificent views. Very comfortable and well equipped too.
Stefania was very welcoming, warm and helpful. She even reserved a restaurant for us for dinner as we were running late on the night we were supposed to arrive! She also gave us many tips on things we can do around the area.
The place was slightly difficult to find at night (as the GPS took us to a different location nearby). But providing GPS co-ordinates on Google Maps did the trick for us. Stefania was very helpful in providing us with directions and the GPS co-ordinates.
Stefania was very friendly (even if you wake her up on a sunday morning :) ). The appartment is very nice. Just be reminded that the street is direct under the (beatiful) balcony.
The view was amazing! Could not have asked for a better view. The home was a bit hard to find, so make sure to use the correct address. There are 2 listed, and we unfortunately used the wrong one. Once we arrived, Stefania was very friendly and helpful. She was willing suggest places to eat and see during our short stay. The house was clean, large enough for a family of 5, and we had plenty of privacy. There is even a private parking with seperate entrance to the apartment. There was a small issue when we first arrived, but Stefania and her husband did fix the problem. Overall, we had a good stay. Thanks Stefania for your hospitality!
This place is fantastic! Lake Como in general is ethereally beautiful. Then, the Menaggio area is the gem of Lake Como. Stefania's airbnb can be a little tricky to find at first since there are two addresses nearby that are spelled almost identical--the place you are looking for (Via alla Grona 33) is located higher up than the address Google map gives you; you'll find your destination right next to the village name "Logo" on the way to Pleasio. The key handover was convenient and on time. The unit has great views and a comfortable living space. Make sure to hike to Refugio Menaggio from Plesio, a short drive up the mountain from Stefania's airbnb.
Stefania was a wonderful hostess, she is professional and offers a clean beautiful space in a quiet and sweet area.The view of lake como was awesome! What a dreamy place! Thanks so much!
Stefania and her husband were amazing hosts. When we first arrived to Como station, we had to take two buses to get to their home since it was located in Plesio. Stefania's husband was waiting at the bus stop for us and this was really a lovely surprise. Their home was lovely and warm. I wish the weather was better but we didn't let that dampen our spirits. Since we were there in a low season, a lot of the shops and restaurants were closed. One night Stefania helped us order pizza and this may not seem like much, but it showed me she was eager to help out as much as she could. We had to go back to Como station early the next morning and Stefania's husband was so nice enough to drop us off. Despite the cloudy and cold weather during our time in Lake Como, I had a great time and Stefania's hospitality was definitely a huge factor. If you are looking for a place to stay, do not hesitate to stay with Stefania. She is always eager to help and even though we were unable to see the view what this apartment offers, I'm sure it's nothing short of amazing.
Stefania, I just want to thank you for your hospitality. You have made our visit wonderful. Grazie di tutto!!!
awesome place. View in the pictures doesn't even do it justice. I constantly walked out in the private patio to take a look.
-strong wifi. Was able to teleconference for school
-the host. Very sweet and accommodating. She provided breakfast for 5€
-the living. All updated and clean interior. Fully furnished.
-value. Amazing price for the space.
-cozy. Plenty of hot water and heat.
-water pressure. Very low. Frustrating for showers and sink.
- the noise. It wasn't terrible but there is a full family living on the floor above you. I was able to study just fine but it's worth mentioning. It is very peaceful otherwise with occasional street noise.
You don't need to have a car but I highly recommend it. I was trying to avoid having a car but I'm so glad I had one to go into town. Menaggio is a great town and great hop off point. I'll be back.
