Stephanie was a most welcoming host. Unfortunately we found the road and traffic noise so loud that we left a day early. We booked for 4 nights but after 3 days traffic passing the balcony (the road is literally 3 m from the deck on sharp hairpin bends) where the beautiful view was, we simply could not stand the noise anymore. We came to Lake Como for some peace and quiet but could not find it here. The cleanliness of the apartment was average and needs improvement for the price being asked. Town is at least 45min down the hill so don't try this with younger kids, especially when it is hot. A car is required to get anywhere. Double check your directions. Like others reviews, the listing is not clear that it is located in Logo! A disappointing last accommodation stay after 3 months travelling in Europe.
I am very sorry to read such a bad comment... and it seems so strange: they told us to leave one night before, due to early flight. It would happen having some noise form the nearby road - I cannot avoid it - but we are in a nice place near wood: we are not in the center of a big town, and in the small village live about 700 people.. It's not so noisy: there such a big-city traffic. In addition, we had always the same cleaning support and never had bad reviews before about it.. we put a big attention on cleaning and precision, it's one of our most relevant jewls of crown! (please read ALL the 90 reviews...)
Beautiful apartment with lovely view of lake Como. We had a rental car that made getting to Mennaggio easier for our group of 4. Walking would have been a bit of a hike along a very winding road with hairpin turns and lots of motorcycles. The are many motorcycles along this road.
The apartment in the house was very homey and clean. Washing machine was a nice feature. Our family with two grown children fit fine into the twin bunks.
While we didn't get a chance to meet Stefania her husband greeted us shortly after our arrival. Stefania was available by text and answered promptly.
We like others had trouble with our gps finding the house. Study the map and don't rely on gps. Google maps was better. We were a little panicky as it was getting dark.
Overall a nice stay in their lovely home.
Huge thanks to Stefania for hosting us!
The apartment is amazing and view is breathtaking!
The apartment has anything you need for a great stay at beautiful lake Como. Beds were good, everything extremely clean and well stocked. Parking and Internet available.
Very close to Menaggio and easy access by boat to all other beautiful Como cities/villages!
Stefania and her husband were extremely nice a helpful! Stefania was very kind to suggest nice places to visit in vicinity as well as helping me recovering my credit card left at the store.
If I would be coming to lake Como int the future I'd be happy to stay there for few more days next time.
The apartment was clean, tidy and specious. Our host Stefania was always prompt and helpful with communication.
The view from the terrace is fantastic. We did enjoy it very much.
Stefania and Luka's place was absolutely adorable. It was quite a way uphills with the car, but really worth it. There is a beautiful terrace and the rooms on the inside where really neat and comfortable. We were sad we had to leave.
Luka welcomed us in the evening and helped us out if there was a problem.
The only remark would be the noise of the cars that pass by (the road is right next to the house). Luckily it didn't bother us much. Maybe
This two-bedroom apartment was the perfect getaway for my husband and I when we visited Lake Como. Around five minutes drive up the mountain from Menaggio, the flat has everything you could need (including a washing machine!), plus the most incredible view of the lake.
Stefania emailed us before we arrived to ensure we had what we wanted (such as wifi passwords etc) and even emailed to check we were alright when she hadn't heard from us, which was sweet.
Small touches, like having maps and local booklets on nearby sites, was a nice touch too.
The only thing I'd note is that that this flat is not accessible for those without a car, as there's no street lighting or walkways.
Stefania and her family were wonderful hosts and were available for any questions! We really enjoyed our stay here as the place was spacious and quiet; also the view from the veranda is wonderful. We hiked down to the Menaggio center one day instead of taking the bus, which I recommend if you like a nice scenic walk. Outside of that we took the bus and taxi back and forth. The taxi was 15 euro one way and the busses stop running at either 5:30-6:30 depending on the day. The host always recommeds renting a car to travel betwen the towns and this property.
Thanks for your hospitality, Stefania!
