Reviewed April 24, 2014

We had a great family stay on Lake Como at Lcbr. Eric was very helpful and knowledgable and went the 'extra mile' to make sure we were comfortable and settled.

Such a Special Place

  • 5 of 5

I don't often give reviews but after enjoying two amazing weeks in July at Lake Como Beach Resort... it really does warrant the effort. I went with my family and was initially anxious it may have been too quiet for my two girls aged 15 & 12. I shouldn't have worried.. They loved it!! Swimming in the lake, Kayaking or exploring, with lots to do. I would highly recommend hiring a boat for the day, great way to see the Lake. We met some wonderful people whilst there, and the hospitality of Eric and Jennifer was second to none! Highlights were waking up to that amazing scenery, eating breakfast in the peaceful gardens and having the most BBQ's at dusk. (Butcher in local store is great) Thank you Eric for everything! Hope to see you again some day :) Christine & Peter

Very relaxed

  • 5 of 5

My only complaint is that when we arrived the door of the hotel was locked so we couldn't get in- take their phone numbers to contact them when you arrive. Overall the accommodation was just what we wanted, comfortable with all we needed. Eric & Jennifer were extremely friendly & helpful. We met some fantastic families that we socialised with (sorry to the other guests for our late night). The bus & ferry services were easy to get to & easy to use, perfect to see around the lake. Perfect holiday, would definitely go back

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. We are sorry for having the door locked but as we are a holiday rental and want to keep everything secure, we keep the front locked for the guests and they normally use their keys that are located in the lock box at the front door on arrival in the instructions. Good idea to keep our numbers and entry info. So sorry that happened to you. We have also had passers by remove wine from the resort so best to keep the front door closed when not in use. We really enjoyed having you and are so happy you enjoyed your stay and were able to relax and take in the amazing lake. We look forward to having you back again. Ciao from Lake Como! Eric, Robin, Jennifer and the Lake Como Beach Resort Team.

Clean accommodation and a great host in a beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday, a beautiful location right by the lake. Everyone else staying at the villa was friendly and we enjoyed chatting to different people during our stay. This part of Italy is not for those with walking problems or toddlers on account of the steep hills and countless steps. The lake is deep even near the edge and there aren't many safe shallow areas for young children. The locals in Pognano were friendly and the ferry is a short walk from the villa.

Amazing waterfront villas!

Don't you miss this one! The apartments themselves are not the most luxurious ones but the views will blow your mind! Also the host Eric is one of the kindest people we have ever seen. Credits for this place. Highly recommended!

Incredible views!!! Amazing Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four from Tucson, AZ USA. My wife and I decided to take our two teenage boys age 14 and 16 to northern Italy for a summer family vacation. Eric setup a driver, Aziz, to pick us up from Milan Airport. (We don't speak Italian so having someone take us to the villa was stress-free.) The cost 140 euros. The van was very nice and relaxing after a long flight.

The views of Lake Como was breath-taking. Eric greeted us and help us with the luggage. (Several step to get to the cliff-side elevator-advice-wear comfortable shoes). We had unit #1. Magnificent views of Lake Como and grassy courtyard from our bedroom window. Eric drove us up to the local butcher/deli store so we can stock our fridge with food for always hungry teenage boys and local wine for us. The salami, ham, prosciutto, fresh bread, mozzarella, pesto, pasta, etc was fantastic!!!

Our unit had a full refrigerator and a smaller beverage fridge. Small galley type kitchen, eating area and sofa on the 1st floor. Going up narrow spiral staircase was difficult at first but we became proficient by the end of our week.

There is a lobby with an expresso/coffee machine, fridge stocked with sodas and water bottles, DVD's, books all on a honor system sign up sheet.

We followed the recommendations provided by Eric for our daily outings. We used the ferry (<5 minute walk) to go to Tremezzo, Cernobbio, Villa Carlotra, Bellagio, and Como. We used local buses as well. The towns surrounding the lake was charming with great shopping and restaurants. Just follow Eric's recommendations and you will be fine.

We met couples from the U.K., Dennis and Fiona, Germany, USA, Austria all in the central courtyard where we all gathered for our evening meals and happy hour.

We have used VRBO and HomeAway all over the world. I read all the reviews for this property. Rent Eric and Robyn's place-you will not be disappointed. We highly recommend.
