Massimiliano was a great host and very communicative before our arrival! He was very gracious as we ended up arriving a few hours later than expected. He answered all my questions beforehand very thoroughly and provided a detailed tour upon arrival. The apartment was very…
Response from Massimiliano:
Thank you very much for your kind review , dear Jennifer ! I wish you all the best About the road in front of the house, it is not an highway, but a normal town's road and it is strongly less trafficated and busy than many roads here in Desenzano. It is a local street, that connects the lake and the little centre of our town. I usually do not feel it as busy or noisy and sometimes it is completely silent and quiet...:-) There is a little petrol station 100 m far from the house: it is not so noisy and it doesm't cover the view on the apartment's balcony, as the balcony is higher :-) Therefore, that station is there since more or less 40 years, they have changed owners sometimes in these years : we do prefer that this petrol staion still be there (it may be also comfortable, if you need to get gas, maybe in emergency, as it is also a little mechanic service) than a big building in the same area..:-) A little petrol station is better than a big new building there ..:-) Suggestions about grocerys / supermarkets : I usually gives to my guests some suggestions about grocerys , supermarkets , restaurants and other services in the neighborhood , during check-in and also later , when we meet each other and also by sms or (Hidden by Airbnb) ...:-) If I remember correctly, I did the same for you :-) If i didn't do it, you could have asked me about it , as we often met each other during your stay and I live in the same building , so I am almost always here..:-) I would have been very happy to help you! Thanks again and all the best, Massimiliano
We had a wonderful stay in Massimiliano's place in Lago di Garda. It is quite a spacious and comfortable apartment with a nice view of the lake. We are a family of 5 (two adults and 3 teens) and all slept there comfortably. There was only air conditioning in the bedrooms, but tha…

Thank you very much, dear Felicia. I found very well with you, too. About washing machine in the apartment, it is since I began to rent my apartments (4 years ago) that I am thinking about it. Only matter is that, if a washing machine would break, it would take maybe some days to repair it . So, the guests that wouldn't find it in the apartment while it is in repairing, would be penalized and it is not correct to promise the washing machine and then don't find it...:-) So, the way could be to find a washing machine easy to use, easy to repair and difficult to break..:-) I am going to think about it, I'll keep you in touch about that...:-) Therefore, there is the automatic laundry shop just in front of the house, long life to it..:-) Thanks and best regards from Garda Lake, Massimiliano
Massimiliano could not have been more helpful! Always attentive to all our needs, his flat is superb, we enjoy our 3 day stay very much..having dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake Garda was one of our highlights on our 2 week trip! His apartment was very clean, kitchen ha…
A spacious, airy apartment with fantastic views of the lake. It is more or less equi-distant between Sirmione and Desenzano town centre, which makes it an excellent location. About a ten - fifteen minute walk or a two-minute drive to a nice beach.
Masimiliano was very nice and the house is very big but only two bedrooms. we enjoyed it a lot.
Massimiliano is a very friendly host. The apartment is nice but 10 meters away from a gas station. This gas station also has an outdoor car wash. So there is constant noise pollution. The bathroom of the apartment is not good. The shower is really not nice and clean. Furthermore…
Response from Massimiliano:
Thanks for good words about my job as guest Therefore, I would like to do some clarifications about your review. 1) Gas Station : I know that there is a little gas station , with car wash, close to the house. If you say " 10 meters away " , it is not correct, as the house is rounded by a big garden and then, after another space in the middle, there is petrol station. I never hide to my guests the existence of this station : when I do check in, the first thing that I do (and I did it with you too) it's going in the balcony with my guests to show them the view and tell them some things about the lake and our area. From there, the station is visible , the view is not covered by the station and noise is not loud and absoultely bearable. I usually sit there when I clean the house and it is a quiet place , my guests usually tell me that too. If in photo gallery of the apartment , the station is not so visible, I think it is quite normal . " Noise pollution " from car wash is not constant, it is for some hours in a day, more or less 5/8 hours and is bearable, considering that car wash was not just under you and your apartment was at second floor. 2) Bathroom : The bathroom of your apartment is good. Consider that it is not brand new, as the house was built in 1971 and it is renewed each year in a different part (one year windows and doors, one year furniture , one year electrical system etc) . We usually do this each winter. It is not brand new but it is constantly checked and cleaned , after each guest's departure. All bathroom and also the shower: i could assure you that it has been cleaned before your arrival, as it has been cleaned by me, as always (Website hidden by Airbnb) Nobody has complaint by now for cleaning by now, you are the first person in 4 year , so I could be sure that more than two hundred people are right and only one is wrong, even only for a statistic reason . Maybe you could find a little limestone in the shower tray : we often clean it and it is quite difficult to remove and quite normal to find. We are going to change shower tray and put a new one , in a short time. At check in bathroom was be given clean , but at your departure it wasn't clean at all : on shower drain, so on shower tray, I found lot of hairs . Wc closet was dirty, with some " rests " that I immediately removed : it was only the third time in four years that I found them . When I made you noticed it, writing you politely by message after your departure, you told me that you have paid 50 euro for cleaning and you didn't mean to clean bathroom. Nobody asked you to clean it and I don't ask it to anybody, but it is normal and a normal sig of education to leave it clean . 3) " Apartment is dangerous for children " : this is false, at all. You didn't have little kids with you , so you couldn't have experienced it . Balconies are safe, with high railings . Little Children should be controlled, as everywhere , but the place is totally safed and totally checked. I have thousands of family with little kids , nobody has complained about it ! 4) " Several electricity wall sockets were loose and not working " : In each room there more than 5 wall sockets , so there is place for any item to use. We checked one on the bedroom just before your arrival , we tried to repaired it but it was a little complicated and we were in a hurry , as we found it broken few hours before your arrival. We repaired it just before your departure. There is one little broken in the living room , but it worked as I used it during cleanings and we repaired it after your departure too. So, in conclusion, I thank you again for such good words on me , but i conside your review a little specious and I am going to discuss it with Airbnb Customer Service, as I already did few minutes after your departure , to let them now my " side of the story ". Other things about my experience you could see in review that I did sincerely, Massimiliano
