“This was our second stay at John & Monica’s villa. The moment we arrived the view was still captivating just like the first time, we never get tired of it. We love the villa as much we love the vie, it is spotless , comfortable, plenty of interior and outdoor space with very comfortable furniture to lounge around. Having elevator makes it so convenient to haul luggage and groceries, especially for clyde who doesn’t like to climb steps :)). John is amazing person, he is such an easy going, helpful, welcoming ,he certainly made us feel like we have known him for a very long time even though we have not had a chance to meet him in person yet. Hopefully we will someday. Angelo, the property manager and his wife are amazing people as well, they made us feel like part of their family, they certainly are exceptional people. As soon as they learned we liked lasagne, the next day they showed up with a big tray of delicious home made lasagna made especially for us.. we almost cried. At the end of our second stay we had a hard time packing because our emotional ties with both the villa, the host we haven’t met, and the property manager Angelo and his wife. After John reading this review he might be concerned clyde and I will move in and have to end up evicting us in order to get us out :)) Thank you very much John & Monica for hosting us again, you have extended our life span for a few more years. We hope you let us get through the front door the third time.”
John's reviewsAs a host (2)
“WOW….WHAT A VIEW !! Pictures of lake Como and John’s villa just don’t do it’s justice.. period. We had two incredible weeks at John’s villa. This was one of our best exchanges we have done so far. John certainly designed his villa not just to capture the breathtaking views of lake Como, but he didn’t forget about comfort and living space. Clyde and I had our adult daughter, her spouse and a child visiting for a few days, we all had privacy throughout their visit because of 3 separate living floors, first living floor equipped with a full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms & baths and a very spacious terrace, second living floor has open floor plan that has a huge kitchen, dining , sitting area , huge terrace with gorgeous view and a half bath which was great for gatherings. And the third floor offers two spacious bedrooms, two baths and an office, and having an elevator is quite a luxury. The villa is so well positioned. It was very convenient for us to base ourselves for two weeks to explore lake Como, Lugano and making a day trip across beautiful mountain passes to visit St, Moritz, or even a day trip to Lake Maggiore was easy. John was an exceptional host, he was so easy going, warm, welcoming, helpful, thoughtful and accessible before and during our stay. Thank you John for sharing the piece of paradise with us. We look forward to our return, hope very soon.”
