Guestbook comments from the manager
Great location in Como
My family of 5 stayed at Villa Elika in april for a few nights. From Como S. Giovanni train station, the walk is about 10 minutes. From Como Nord Lago train station, the walk is even shorter. Eric was waiting for us with the keys in a cafe next to the apartment building. The building is very secure. It is about 2-3 steps up, then the main entrance which requires a key, followed by a few more steps to the elevator. I think the stairs would be manageable for the elderly (maybe not wheelchair bound). Eric showed us everything about the apartment - how to use the kitchen appliances, tv, reset the breaker in the basement, etc. He was very patient and informative. There are flyers, maps, ferry schedules and brochures in the apartment in case you didn't do your research beforehand. The WiFi also worked well. The apartment is clean and well kept. We found the beds to be comfortable. My sister didn't have any issues with the sofabed.
The location of this apartment is amazing. It is literally 1 block and 1 piazza/square from the Lake. It is within walking distance of everything especially the ferry and trains. It is next door to a supermarket and a few storefronts from a bakery. We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is large and roomy which is not what my family was expecting after travelling through Italy where things are usually more conservative in size. It was great having a large living room for our family and a big kitchen. The bathrooms are also big as well.
Eric and Robin have been very helpful from the start. Answering my questions and acting as a concierge. They helped me make all my dinner reservations since most restaurants only accept phone calls. They also gave me suggestions on things to do and where to eat. Since I didn't have a phone in Italy, they were very responsive to my emails when we stayed in the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anybody and hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you!
