We have always loved the Lake Geneva area and we searched all the condo properties thoroughly before buying our Abbey Villa. This complex has the best location for beauty, amenities and proximity to the beach, etc. You have the best of both worlds with the Abbey Hotel nearby but comforts and privacy of the condo.

There are activities almost every weekend during the summer such as the July 4th celebration, Lobster/Steak Fry in July, Classic Antique Boat show in the autumn, bike and run events, Venetian Festival in August, Snow sculpting competition in February and more. Fontana is on the west end of the lake and is less congested in the summer and makes it easy to enjoy the lake. The fall is also a gorgeous time to visit the area with fall festivals, pumpkin and apple picking farms nearly.

Average condo - owner very difficult to deal with! Beware!

  • 1 of 5
The condo was average at best - very dated, too far from the lobby and pool, difficult to find, limited parking, up a flight of stairs, with a foul smelling odor in the hallway. Check out the 70s furniture and décor and blue kitchen countertop!

The bigger problem was the owner. From the moment we first contacted her, she was extremely difficult to deal with. I am a mature, late-30s man staying in this condo with two friends... I'm not a kid who was looking to throw a party in the condo but the owner was very intrusive, rude, inflexible, patronizing, and rigid with her list of policies and demands. There was lots of hurdles to jump through and rules to follow. She has multiple contracts to sign, and multiple checks you have to write her in advance as well as on the day of check in. She charges extra for each extra guest, and an extra fee for a "late checkout". It was very difficult all around. She made several subtle threats and told us she would be checking in on us to make sure there were no more than 4 people there or else she would charge extra. I'm pretty sure she came in during the middle of the day while we were out. When we were leaving I politely asked what she would like me to do to clean up and she chastised me because I didn't have her lengthy contract in hand to review. I would not rent from her again. Dealing with her took the joy out of our stay in Lake Geneva. Beware.

Owner's Response: I am not surprised to receive this negative review from this renter. From the beginning, he was not precise about how many people were renting the villa which I base my rental costs on. He never reviewed my policies on VRBO to notice that I charge $25 for each extra person over four and the cleaning fee is clearly stated. This is standard policy for many Abbey Villas. He signed the one-page, simple rental agreement which is all that is required. A day before his rental, he changed the rental dates and yet I accommodated him on this change. I had to send him a copy of his check which had the dates on it to verify this information. Upon check-in, my husband and I met him and greeted him in a pleasant manner and I made him a copy of the agreement, for his convenience, which I verbally outlined the simple steps to follow before checking out. He mentioned he might like late check-out and anyplace you go, you will find a fee which is a modest $25 per hour for our condo. He lost the agreement and texted me and wanted to know what to do for check-out. I explained to him that he needed to locate that document as it had everything listed. He took offense to this and then proceeded to send nasty text messages to me because I did not instantly provide the information over the phone. He texted me that he had a big weekend and that the agreement was the last thing on his mind. I explained to him that agreements are important in any business and I have no other option but to use them to secure rentals as I own and operate my condo. He said I really do not have a business and need to be more flexible. I never entered the condo during his stay as I would never invade a renter's privacy. His abrupt and demanding attitude was evident from the beginning of the rental process and he set the tone of the relationship. As for the decor of the condo, it is the 90s style and anyone can check my VRBO site out for pictures. You can judge for yourself.

I was so happy and comfortable in this Abbey Condo!! It provided me with supreme peace and quiet. I just loved having my morning coffee on the beautiful, spacious balcony. The owner saw to my every need. I would be thrilled to return for another stay!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5
The condo was very comfortable during our stay in Fontana. It was convenient to everything we wanted to see. The pool and porch were where we spent the most time. After a long day on the water, it was nice to order a pizza from Pie High Pizza just a minute away and relax on the porch. Everything was very comfortable. Not the fanciest place, but certainly clean and cozy. The owner was very helpful and accommodating as well.

Weekend away

  • 5 of 5
My 3 girlfriends and I had a fabulous weekend at this beautiful condo. It was very clean and cozy! The accommodations were perfect and much better than staying at a hotel. The condo is a short walk to the Abbey resort so if you are going to attend a conference it is perfect. We can't say enough good things about our stay, and the owner made sure we were well taken care of.
