This was a wonderful getaway -- lovely area, beautifully decorated and maintained condo, great restaurants within short distance. Jim was attentive and helpful before and during our stay. We could not have been more pleased.
We stayed a week at the condo. The condo was very cute in its decorations and was very roomy and comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nicely appointed and the view from the family room and bedrooms was very pretty. Lots of green space and a view of the swimming pool. Everything you might need, such as glassware, dishes, coffee pot, etc was available. It had all the comforts of home.
Something really nice is how clear Jim, the owner was in his directions, from the TV to the WIFI, to the laundry and AC, it was all clearly explained. Suggestions for restaurants, and restaurant delivery and local events were listed too. If you felt you had an additional question, Jim was readily available. Texting worked quite well for us, but he always encourage a phone call if needed. The place is close to restaurants, grocery stores, and the beautiful lake and Abby Resort. The proximity to the swimming pool was ideal. It was an quick walk and visible from the condo, but not too close. We had our little grandchildren visit for a couple of nights and they loved the pool and the nearby property of the Abby Resort. I can't say enough nice things about our experience. I can highly recommend this as a great place to stay if you want something in the Fontana/Lake Geneva area. We really had a terrific time!
My family and I stayed at this condo during a relaxing get away to celebrate my mom's birthday. Five us stayed in the condo and had plenty of room. The condo is tucked away behind the Abbey Resort and very private and quiet. The pool was very close to the patio door, yet far enough away that both we and the swimmers and sunbathers had some separation/privacy from one another. We arrived on a Tuesday and hardly saw another soul for the first couple days we were there. Had the weather been a little nicer for us (it rained the first couple days) we would have basically had the entire pool to ourselves until Friday. The condo was very nicely decorated and was stocked with most everything we would need during our stay (silverware, cups, pots/pans, coffee maker, games, bars of soap, etc.). The owner, Jim, was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process, from the time we first inquired about the condo through after our stay. He even offered us early check in and late check out, free of charge, as he had no other reservations directly before or after us. He was very prompt in returning our security deposit and overall very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The Abbey Resort was walking distance from the condo and offered a couple restaurants, a spa, a game room, etc. There were some additional restaurants very nearby just across from the Abbey Resort, right on the lake. We had a very, very nice stay overall.
Now for the few and fairly minor negatives, which are the only reasons I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. I will add a disclaimer that my family is a little meticulous, so some of this may not bother everyone. Upon arriving, though it was clear the condo had been cleaned, it needed a little more thorough cleaning, in my opinion. There were a few dead bugs along the base boards in one of the bedrooms and when I looked behind the bed/nightstand area for an outlet, there was a build up of dust bunnies and more dead bugs. Additionally, we went to make lemonade in a beverage dispenser we found in the kitchen (which was pretty great that this was even there for our use), but it was dirty. It appeared some iced tea or something had been made in it and not cleaned. Finally, my sister slept on the pull out bed in the living room and was so uncomfortable that she hardly got any sleep and decided to just sleep on the couch itself for the rest of our stay.
Overall, we had a great stay and I would definitely rent again and recommend to anyone!
My husband and I spent 5 days at this very nice well-appointed condo with my sister and brother-in-law. It is as nice as the pictures show with lots of nice outdoor space in addition to the indoor space. We had a wonderful time in Lake Geneva and plan to visit again soon and stay here again. We had wonderful walks around the lake, great shopping and exploring in town, mini golf and nice restaurants. Jim, the owner, was extremely helpful and willing to answer questions. Definitely consider this condo if you're visiting Lake Geneva.
The condo was accurately described in the listing. The property was clean and well maintained, and conveniently located to the private pool and the resort pools. The owner was very helpful and stayed in touch during the stay to be sure we were accomodated. I would definitely stay at this place again and recommend it to others.
We were in the Lake Geneva area for a family reunion.
Our family had a fantastic stay at this condo. The location was perfect. We walked to restaurants, shops and the lake. The condo is nicely decorated, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked for cooking. We went to the lake during the day and the kids swam at the pool right outside the patio every night.
Jim, the owner was very informative and helpful during our stay. We will definitely stay there again.
