Guestbook comments from the owner

We are back home now in Florida and talking to friends about our fabulous vacation in Menaggio on Lake Como. Everything was perfect, from our arrival at your office to transport to Bellavista de Lago and the spectacular views from this apartment. What a wonderful vacation getaway. The location is within easy walking distance to the ferry, the town center and many great restaurants. The apartment had everything we needed from wifi to a washer and dryer. Breakfast on the terrace was a perfect start to a day of touring. Your staff gave us many great places to visit. Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbiano were breathtaking. Of course, ferry rides to Bellagio and Varenna were a must. Two highlights were the market in Leno and the festival in Tremezzo. They transported us to three small towns for lunch. At each stop we ate a different course and had a chance to meet and talk with the locals.

What really made this vacation great was the personal support from your staff. Viviana Pianarosa was wonderful. From places to see, to restaurants to transportation she was always there to help. Everyone we met with was so professional and accommodating. As soon as I upload my photos I will send the best to you. As a trip advisor reviewer, you can be assured I will have great comments about Happy Holiday Homes and Bellavista de Lago. We will be back.

Ok

  • 3 of 5

We booked this apartment for our yearly holiday. Apartment ok. Clean and in a good position with lake views. Its about a ten minute walk into Menaggio. The walk is downhill but is quite a steep uphill walk back.

The aprtment was well equipped although needs updating and there were a few things which needed to be maintained. Needs a paint outside. Also be advised that the apartment is situated in a residential complex. There is a shared pool. The residents there did not seem happy when the pool was being used. I particulary picked this apartment as it had a pool but we were all made to feel uncomfortable so had to go to the lido. Communication with the Owner was not good.

Well equiped apartment with a view

  • 4 of 5

The appartment is very well equipped, spacious, has lots of cupboard space which was great as we stayed 3 weeks and had a lot of stuff. The furniture is tasteful and there is enough cutlery for 8. Happy holiday homes that manages the appartment is a professional company that helps efficiently in case of problems and that is actively planning excursions and giving good tipps (dining with children...).

However, not all services are up to the high standard that the company strives to give. The cleaning company is not up to much. We had a sticky bathroom cupboard and lots of dust under the bed. Also, the toilet flush in one of the bathrooms did not work when we arrived. How can you NOT notice this when you clean a bathroom? HHH sent someone the next day to fix this and some other plumbing problems.

The dishwasher had no salt and someone had put salt into the space for the rinsing liquid. Again - this should be checked by the cleaners.

We cooked a lot and it was a bit challenging as the largest pot was barely large enough to cook 500 g of spaghetti, but not more.

The condominium is in a complex of around 30 appartments that share a swimming pool. The pool is large enough to swim and was rarely crowded, even in August.

The view is gorgeous and the terrace is large enough to have meals outside - if the heat allows it.

The area is very scenic and there are lots of things to do and places to visit. We went to Como by boat twice, to Milan by ferry to Varenna and continued by train (beware - you have to buy the tickets in the tourist information in Varenna, no ticket sale at the station), and of course we took the ferry to Varenna and Bellagio and visited some villas.

Unfortunately, the restaurant in the Lido di Menaggio closed while we were there (legal problems) and the local authorities only managed to get a kiosk to operate that sold panini and ice cream. Apart from that, the lido is very nice.

HHH has multilingual friendly staff. With some more attention to detail this could be a five star place, the potential is there.
