Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for a great 3 weeks! We were really taken with Lake Como, it is a really enchanting place! Our holiday apartment was conveniently placed for reaching Menaggio and the central lake by car and there were some beautiful walks nearby for us to enjoy. The nearby village of Rezzonico offered us a public beach although this was quiet small although we enjoyed relaxing by the pool in the resident grounds anyways and the lido in Menaggio was really great for more serious sunbathing!! Our apartment was really modern and spacious inside and all 6 of us were perfectly accommodated in here. The outside lake view terrace was hugely popular with all of us and we enjoyed some great meals here during our holiday. There was so much to do in that part of the lake and we couldn't have had a better time. Power boat rental, kayaking, golf, quad biking, hiking.. the list goes on!! A big thank you to the helpful team at Happy Holiday Homes!

Not a "luxurious lakeside apartment" by any means!

The view is quite spectacular but the title: 'luxurious lake front apartment' is very misleading. We arrived late on a Sunday evening tired, but optimistic. However, first impressions were not good. As suggested in the Lake Como Homes Welcome Notes, "tomorrow it will all look different"! Well, no it didn't, because the toilet seat was still cracked in half, the shower hose was still leaking, the broken glass was still on the veranda, the dirt and crumbs on the settee, dangerous and unusable electrical socket, dust and hair from previous occupants and the filthy floors were all still there. So, quite frankly it was not worth the high rental charge (which included cleaning!!!) .

On the plus side, the property is in a quiet and well maintained complex and the swimming pool is a bonus and the kitchen has been replaced. However, its accessibility by two narrow and steep staircases is unsuitable for children and the elderly. The small garage was only for a Smart car!

The apartment is tired, tatty and in urgent need of TLC. The two bathrooms need renovation. The previous occupants' dirt was very evident and the shower curtain disgusting. The double mattress is badly stained and should be thrown away. The sofas had sheets thrown over them to hide the paint stains and general dirt, and are uncomfortable too. The table lamp was non existent, none of the floors have seen soap and water for some time, the rug was filthy and so too were the seat cushions on the kitchen chairs. Chinaware is either cracked or chipped with no complete sets. The venetian blind was broken and caked in dirt. The walls need repainting and the first thing we glimpsed in the morning was not the view but all the weeds growing in the garden flower boxes.

So, for goodness sake make sure something gets done about this so called 'Luxurious Apartment' because we felt that you took our hard earned cash and didn't give tuppence as to how this property should be presented. If you value your reputation, then you should insist that Bella Gaeta comes up to an acceptable standard quickly. We did complain on Monday morning and the Agency cleaners came but only did a superficial job. The toilet seat and shower hose were replaced but it should not have required us to mention this need.

The Agency seems very keen to market add-on additional services but perhaps they should make more frequent effort to inspect and check their properties, if ours is anything to go by.

Not worth the money!

  • 2 out of 5
At first we have to say that we did not rent this flat over fewo, but over lake como homes, but we wanted to write down our experience with this flat.
We arrived at the flat quite late in the evening with our six weeks old baby and our three children. You can imagine that we only looked at the flat very quickly, because we had to bring up our luggage and get everything ready to put the four children to bed. At first we realized that there was no baby cut, that we ordered, so we had to phone the office of lake como homes to send somebody with the baby bed.
When the children were in bed, we could already see that the apartment was not clean and that it was very dusty. The next morning we noticed that we had to clean a lot of things, because it was even dirtier then we thougt so, for example there were many of hairs on the floor in the bathrooms and even in the lavabo and the bath tub and on the terrace our children found two trash cans full of old trash.
This was very annoying, because the rent for the flat is quite high.
This flat is allright with a nice view over lake como, but not more.
The refrigerater is very difficult to open and to close, a lot of things are rather old, the shower curtain is full of fungi, hooks are defect and so on and so on.
We called up the office again on sunday, but we couldn’t reach anybody. On monday we went to the office to tell how dirty it was. The lady was very friendly and sent a cleaning staff to clean the flat and remove the trash.
When we came back we could smell that somebody cleaned the floor, but to tell you the truth, it wasn’t much better than before and they didn’t take the trash from the terrace, so we had to call the office again. An hour later a man came to get the trash.
This is not what you expect, when you want to relax with your family for some days.

‘Bella Gaeta’ Menaggio is just a 5 minutes drive from the main centre of Menaggio, which is one of the most famous Lakeside towns and forms part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ which also features Varenna and Bellagio. Menaggio offers all the desired local amenities such as Supermarkets, Bakeries, Banks, Boutique shops and a great variety of restaurants and cafes.

The frequent Ferry service also operates from the town’s port and is the ideal method to explore the rest of Lake Como. Local attractions include Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello, Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and the beautiful towns of Varenna, Bellagio, Tremezzo and Como city.

Other Activities: Boat Rentals/Charters

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
