“Big pluses BUT big minuses too [cleanliness]”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

Cosy, comfortable apartment with view overlooking Lake Maggiore 15 mins from Stresa. We appreciated the basket of welcoming local produce. Choice of books, DVDs and CDs for bad weather.
However, we were immediately asked for an extra €50.-- for "cleaning" : apparently this appears on the booking form but so far down, it is very difficult to note. Caveat emptor!
Apartment was advertised "from €60.--" We were asked 95.-- per day, so felt the added cleaning bill of 50.-- for 4 days was outrageous, or at the least, grasping. The cookplates in the oven not cleaned in ages: there were dead insects on the bedroom floor which also had accumulated fluff under the bed: the washing machine was half full of dirty, smelly, stagnant water: a ca. 3cm screw was sticking out from broken kitchen flooring, tearing stockings and open slippers. We left early very disappointed. Sorry, would not recommend.

Thank you for your feedback.

I would firstly like to confirm that the cleaning/laundry fee payable locally was reiterated in a letter sent to you shortly before your arrival date, which states "I will meet you at the apartment before you depart in order to collect keys and the €50 payment for cleaning/laundry and to check the inventory." so I am sorry if you think this was not clear.

I appreciate that you offered to clean the apartment yourself but I do have people who come in to prepare not only for your arrival but for that of the following guests, which includes washing, ironing and changing of the bed linen, towels and preparing the welcome pack - and these tasks must be done regardless of the length of a guests stay.

The "from" price indicates the starting price for the accomodation, depending on when one wishes to travel.

I have taken a note of the areas that you feel require some attention but as you can see from previous reviews (and I can confirm from reviews received from other sites), the apartment has always been praised for its cleanliness and I rely strongly on my cleaners to maintain the high standards we have set so far.

I will however make sure that they receive a copy of your feedback and address any maintenance issues that had previously not been brought to my attention.

Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

WOW. This apartment has everything you could ever want, it's modern and extremely comfortable inside. The outdoor space is unbelievable with fantastic views, my wive and I sat outside for breakfast in the sun, and then when the sun set at the end of September we got blankets and stayed outside to enjoy the lights of the lake.
Helen could not have been more helpfull with lots of information and advice on hand.
We will deffinaltly be going back to stay in the future.
Thanks you Helen.

“Just Lovely!”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A great place ot stay in Stresa, we booked via trip advisor & this was all very easy & trouble free with good communication & helpful advice. The apartment is lovely & a real home from home, very comfortable & kitted out with everything you need (& more!) there. It is spotlessly clean & very comfortable. Helen is really helpful ( she lives nearby) & has lots of information & suggestions of places to visit etc in the surrounding area, there was also more helpful information in the apartment than at the local tourist office! We walked everywhere, it is a bit of a hike up the hill but we managed it quite easily ( & we are not youngsters – 59 & 62) We had a car with us as we had driven from England but we left it in the car park at the apartment for almost our entire stay here, so a car is not essential.
The best part of all is the huge private terrace where you get stunning views of the lake, when I first saw if I thought it was to share with neighbours, but no, it is all private for the apartment – lovely! I would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone - it set the bar very high & was a hard act to follow on our tour of the lakes. Thank you Helen we had a fabulous time, loved your apartment & Stesa & hope to return one day – of all the Italian lakes we visited Maggiore is our favourite.

“Great Value and even better views.”

We had a great stay in this apartment in Stresa. The apartment was extremely well appointed.
It had everything you needed for a very comfortable stay. Helen communicated with us well before and during our stay. She has prepared a folder with information on Stresa that leaves no stone unturned and we found interesting to read and an invaluable guide to the area. But the very best aspect about the apartment are the absolutely breathtaking views which never fail to amaze you every time you look out the window or step out on the balcony. We have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.

The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The view of the lake is wonderful, specially of an early morning as the sun rises. In our view the pictures do not do it total justice. The owner Helen was kind and very helpful. We specially enjoyed our visit to Isola Bella and enjoyed some wonderful food and wine around the area. The ease of parking our hire car at the property was greatly appreciated. The local grocery shop was very good and an easy place pick up provisions for breakfasts.
