We stayed at Emily's apartment for 5 nights and overall very much enjoyed the experience. Emily was always very quick to reply to out queries and came to check that everything was ok. We were allowed to bring our Westie dog, which was great!
The apartment was spacious enough for 3 adults without feeling cramped, was clean, very easy parking and most importantly, had amazing views of Lake Como! It is less than 2 mins to walk to the lake and beach. However you do have to drive to Menaggio to take the ferry, as they don't stop at Acquaseria. We didn't realize this beforehand. There is a corner store and grocers in the village (2 mins walk).
The only downsides were that the double bed is extremely saggy and soft, and we got bad back and neck pain after 5 nights sleeping on it (the other single bed and bunk beds were comfortable though!). Also, on arrival we found quite a few extremely large and scary looking spiders in the main bedroom and living room!
Emily was a wonderful host. We arrived a bit earlier than expected, but the appartment was ready for us.(Us = young couple with a baby and a boxer dog). The appartment was everything we hoped for. It is very spacious, plenty of room to put stuff, a very nice equiped kitchen, a spacious bathroom with bath, which was perfect with the baby.
Emily is really helpful. She left us plenty of tips for shopping, walking, eating,.. When a light was broke in the living room it was replaced immediately. She also was very helpful with tips for cycling and helped me out when I needed a bike mechanic. This was a really nice first experience with airbnb.
My husband and I traveled to Europe for our 10 year anniversary where we stayed here on our 2nd leg of the trip. Emily's home was exactly as it was pictured and described. It was very clean, very minimalistic and had everything we needed. She even had a (large!) box of delicious honey biscuits, milk and juice waiting for us, which was such a warm welcome to a really long day of travel. What was even better was the fact that while she was not home to see us, we were lost and couldn't find her apartment so she sent her husband out to find us, roaming the narrow streets of Acquaseria. He's such a lovely man who showed us around the house and later saw at the local bar as we watch one of the World Cup matches.
We planned on staying at Emily's apt for 4 nights but ended up leaving early so we could visit some other cities. Regardless, her place was great, the town super quaint and beautiful. Emily was quick to respond to us and extremely helpful.
Thank you for letting us in your home! :)
It was a really lovely place to stay. Emily was helpful, but non intrusive. We were happy to be out of the major tourist towns and to feel more like locals. Easy drive to the alps and menaggio. Great garden to eat breakfast in!
Thanks Emily! Everything was perfect excluding the fustiness of the old house and the cleaning. Still would like to return if you can improve cleanness!
Casa pulita e spaziosa con un giardino a cui si accede direttamente dal salone e dalle camere. Perfetto per noi e i nostri bimbi. Ottima base di partenza per gite giornaliere ma anche per vivere il lago vicinissimo (noi non lo abbiamo fatto per il tempo e perchè volevamo girare). Emily è stata molto gentile e disponibile.
CI SIAMO TROVATI MOLTO BENE. LA SPIAGGIA E' VICINA E DALLA CASA C'E UNA BELLA VISTA SUL LAGO. LA ZONA E' TRANQUILLA E L'ACCOGLIENZA OTTIMA. LA CASA E' FORNITA DI TUTTO.
Nuestra estadía fue perfecta. Un lugar fantastico a tan solo unos metros del lago. Confortable y reconfortante desde todo punto de vista.
Llegar es muy fácil y la comodidad de contar con cochera es genial.
Llegamos en la noche y Emily fue muy amable al recibirnos a los seis, mostrandonos el apartamento y dejándonos algo para el desayuno del dia siguiente. El lugar es muy cómodo y completo, todo listo para pasar unos dias fantásticos. Gracias Emily!
We stayed at this apartment with our 2 children. The location was great. The views of the lake from the garden are beautiful. Giacomo greeted us when we arrived. He knew the stores would be closed and was incredibly kind to supply us with bread, milk, juice, butter, homemade fig jam, and cookies. The apartment was well stocked and clean. We highly recommend staying at Eliot's apartment.
We have just spent 6 nights at Emily and Giacomo's apartment in Aquaseria and are more than happy to recommend it to other travels. We arrived to a bowl of figs from the garden and a litre of milk in the fridge - very thoughtful given we had just driven from France.
The place is clean, well laid out and fit the four of us easily. We took the ferry from Menaggio to Bellagio for some great shopping and took Emily's advice and did the walk from Livo to Grotto Dangri which is one of the highlights of our Trip to Europe.
Thanks to Emily and Giacomo for their place and hospitality.
Emily and her friend were lovely, very curious and sympathic.
Appartment was left perfectly clean !
hope they enjoyed.
