Rachel was really helpful before, during and after our stay. A great host and a wonderful apartment to stay in! The view was gorgeous and the swimming pool was lovely (although the other Italian's living there constantly told us off for not showering before entering the pool, even though we did!!) It was a shame, especially as I can speak Italian to have heard them moaning about it constantly. The apartment was well catered - it had everything we needed for the week and the terrace was perfect for evening meals. The walk into town through the woods was easy - we did it (both ways) with no problem and then just got a 12/13euro taxi back late at night if we needed to (the restaurants/bars were very good at ordering us a taxi too). A holiday tip -We recommend visiting the Sky Bar for drinks at sun down - it's amazing! Overall a lovely stay and a perfect apartment for a trip to Stresa! Thank you!

Firstly, great view. Couldn't really be better. You'll need to be prepared to walk if you want to access anything. But to be honest we loved a lot of evenings on the balcony. Not sure i'd call the trains 'occasional' but they are not disturbing. Lovely place, although the electrics are challenging if you want to cook hot meals for 4! And also come prepared for different power sockets types around the place. Overall though, great value for money and we'd certainly stay here again. Definitely read the 'book', full of great information which will save you time exploring. We had a great time at a really nice place.

Beautiful apartment with great balcony view and shared pool. Very clean and well equipped kitchen. Limited bedding and towels provided, bring your own beach towels. Short drive to town and rail station. Stresa is a very nice town. Limited use of hot water, electricity. Very unreliable and limited wifi access.

The flat is spacious and have a beautiful view. It is very close to train rail, but the noise is not too bad. The fact that the building's central heat was off was a problem as at night was only 4 degrees outside (and probably colder inside). There was one electric heater that was enough to heat the bedroom but we couldn't use the rest of the flat because was just too cold. There was a ant infestation that was really bad. We got several bites as the ants were everywhere. We even found ants in our luggage when we got back home.

Thank you for your feedback. So sorry you has a couple of issues whilst you were staying in the apt and that could have been resolved quite easily had you notified us. You made no mention of these issues when I enquired if everything was ok instead you responded that 'everything is fine'. It is really important to notify the host not only for yourselves but also for future guests. The guests after you told us about the ants (that arrive every spring) and the situation was resolved straight away. (Please see review 'Wessel') We rent the apt from May to September and it is specified in the information that there is no central heating (as usually it is not needed) . Unfortunately you arrived in an unusually cold spell. The heater provided is usually enough heat the apt in these situations, according to guests feedback. If it was not enough we could had provided some more heating had you informed us. It doesn't make sense to suffer in silence during your stay and then compain at the end when the situation could have been completey resolved and you could have enjoyed your stay completely. Please bear this in mind if you decide to rent another property in the future as it is also very frustrating for hosts to read these reviews when, like myself, we are more than willing to help to make sure you get the best from your stay.
