Decent apartment but with issues

  • 3 of 5
This apartment is located just outside Stresa up a steep hill. The apartment was clean and reasonably well equipped. However, we had annoying problems with the boiler that provides hot water and radiator heat. It seemed to have a mind of its own and would turn off randomly. The stove was difficult to light. We eventually located a lighter instead of using the stove's spark starter.

We wanted to change the sheet (only one on the bed) and could not locate another one. The local agent, Inge, while friendly and who met us at the apartment, did not show any real concern and was difficult to contact after our introduction.

There is a small grocery store within walking distance of the apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Jocelyn and Mike,
We are sorry that you had some issues with the apartment and it is important that we give you our feedback. We investigated the boiler problem immediately you informed us (which, my Agent has confirmed was on your departure date) and a loose screw was found and fixed immediately. It is such a shame you did not inform the local Agent when the issue occurred to give her the opportunity to resolve immediately. The local agent has also confirmed that she did not receive a request for additional bedding, which would have been dealt with immediately and I have requested that we leave spare bedding for future clients in the apartment just in case they they require it. The ignite button on the cooker that you have mentioned today has also been investigated and although a little stiff, is working as normal, and I am sorry you had a problem with this. I have spoken to our local Agent and she is both sorry and frustrated that she was unaware of your issues while you were in the apartment and would have responded immediately to text message requests which I understand was the agreed communication, during your stay. I hope this answers your questions and thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Rest assured, we treat all feedback as positive, and will continue to strive to provide outstanding services to clients. |I hope that your return journey was pleasant and uneventful and that you are both keeping well. Best regards to you and Mike.

Beautiful, Well-Equipped, Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful apartment can only exceed expectations!
It is spotlessly clean and equipped with absolutely everything that you could possibly wish for - and more! It is in a lovely quiet location, within easy walking distance of the town and all amenities - ferries to islands, cable car to top of Mattarone and even has a well-stocked shop just 10 minutes down the road. The view from the apartment is stunnng! Sitting on the spacious terrace on a glorious evening with Andrea Bocelli on the CD player is the stuff that romantic dreams are made of.
This truly is a home away - we were only sorry that we had only booked for four days - we did enquire about staying on but another lucky person was arriving straight after we left! Thank you, we had a truly wonderful time and we will definitely return.

Lovely quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 1 week in this lovely apartment in June this year. Description and photos on the website are accurate and it certainly lived up to our expections. It was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The apartment is in a residential area and was very quiet and peaceful during our stay. The local supermarket is about 10 mins walk and has a good selection of produce and pleasant helpful staff. It is about 15 mins walk to the railway station and about 10mins further to the town centre/square where is a good selection of restaurants. The ferry terminal is at the lakefront and there are frequent ferry services going in all directions. We had hired a car so drove to Lake Orta and up to the top of Mattarone. We also took the car ferry to the other side of the lake and visited the market at Luino and another day had a boat trip to the beautiful Borromean Islands.The Lake Maggiore Express is a lovely day trip, travel up to Switzerland by train and return by boat. A lovely area of Italy and a great apartment which we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The good things about this apartment are Inge, local agent, and the panoramic view. Inge is a generous hostess. She gave us lots of valuable tips and is a great asset to the property. The apartment is neat, clean andwell equipped. We had great weather and spent a lot of time on the terrace where more comfortable outdoorchairs would have been appreciated. The walk from Stresa centre back up to the apartment was fine for us until the temperature reached 33 degrees. Then we took a taxi home(10 euros). We spent 9 days in Stresa and found plenty of things to do. This little town is lovely and makes a good base for exploring Lake Maggiore.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated and so happy you had a great holiday. the sun beds are in our Canteen, and in future I will leave them on the terrace for guests (the weather has been unpredicable this summer, hence they were put away) and the cushions for the chairs outside are in the wooden trunk on the terrace. I will add this info into our introduction pack. Many thanks again for your kind words and your 5 star rating.

Great apartment, perfect location for dog owners

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the apartment and Stresa was perfect – so much so we have already booked for 2 weeks next year. We found it very relaxing, everything we needed was readily available and we still have more to see and do.

The apartment is located within minutes of the walking trails and about a 15 minute walk down to the waterfront, which is great for us with 2 dogs. We parked the car up when we arrived and didn’t move it all week as everything we needed was within easy walking distance.

The handover with Inge, the local agent, went seamlessly, she was punctual and offered us some great information and recommendations of places to go and things to do e.g. local supermarkets, dog walks and restaurants. We and our dogs were made to feel extremely welcome by Inge, the rest of the residents in the apartment block and Stresa.

The layout of apartment is well planned, clean and perfectly maintained. All equipment was very good from the kitchen equipment, storage space and entertainment/Wi-fi etc. couldn’t have wished for more. The outside space worked well with the dogs and we spent a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the views from the terrace.

We went to the Cafe Torino as recommended – the staff were extremely helpful, explained the menu to us, there is a good range of vegetarian food on the menu, food was excellent, reasonably priced and dogs were welcome – we will certainly be returning on our next visit.

Overall great apartment, great people and great place - we would certainly recommend it.
