“Great location in Como”
My family of 5 stayed at Villa Elika in april for a few nights. From Como S. Giovanni train station, the walk is about 10 minutes. From Como Nord Lago train station, the walk is even shorter. Eric was waiting for us with the keys in a cafe next to the apartment building. The building is very secure. It is about 2-3 steps up, then the main entrance which requires a key, followed by a few more steps to the elevator. I think the stairs would be manageable for the elderly (maybe not wheelchair bound). Eric showed us everything about the apartment - how to use the kitchen appliances, tv, reset the breaker in the basement, etc. He was very patient and informative. There are flyers, maps, ferry schedules and brochures in the apartment in case you didn't do your research beforehand. The WiFi also worked well. The apartment is clean and well kept. We found the beds to be comfortable. My sister didn't have any issues with the sofabed. The location of this apartment is amazing. It is literally 1 block and 1 piazza/square from the Lake. It is within walking distance of everything especially the ferry and trains. It is next door to a supermarket and a few storefronts from a bakery. We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is large and roomy which is not what my family was expecting after travelling through Italy where things are usually more conservative in size. It was great having a large living room for our family and a big kitchen. The bathrooms are also big as well. Eric and Robin have been very helpful from the start. Answering my questions and acting as a concierge. They helped me make all my dinner reservations since most restaurants only accept phone calls. They also gave me suggestions on things to do and where to eat. Since I didn't have a phone in Italy, they were very responsive to my emails when we stayed in the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anybody and hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you!
“A Dream Come True!”
We stayed at the Villa Elika for our 30th anniversary and it was the perfect location for us to travel through the Lakes Region with ease. Eric and Robin are attentive to all of your needs and the pride of ownership is reflective in their well appointed property. They provide all the comforts of home to assure you have a perfect vacation.
The Villa Elika is simply gorgeous - the attention to detail in the tasteful decoration and the quality of the furniture made it an absolute pleasure to spend some time in Como. The location was perfect - it was so easy to stroll down to the lake to catch a ferry to the various islands and lots of lovely restaurants close at hand. Eric and Robin were very helpful - even offering to contact their own Dr when we had a health concern. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful property to anyone planning to visit the Italian Lakes. Friends who had been to the area before advised us to stay at Bellagio but we found this location very flexible for exploring the area. Would love to come back.
“Waterfront Condo Lake Como”
Our family of five had a fabulous time in lake Como. What a beautiful spot. Your condo was perfect, close to everything, close to the waterfront, restaurants, cafes, shops, the Duomo du Como, the funicular and the ferries to all locations on Lake Como. Your condo was spacious, clean and so central. Terrific to have the supermarket only mins away, where we could get everything! We especially liked being in the hub of everything, as did our three adult sons. Enjoyed relaxing on the terrace, where we at our meals, and enjoyed our privacy. Loved to hear the chimes from the Duomo,church, only steps away. We would certainly return! Thank you for your assistance several times, you were always quick to respond. It was great to have met you and that you were there to help us with any requests. We had a fabulous family holiday! Thank you! The Beauchamps from Toronto Canada.
“Memorable family holiday, beautiful scenery and fantastic weathe”
Eric, the propieter of Villa Elika, was most attentive. He offered lots of good advice and was very accommodating. Villa Elika is a super apartment situated literally minutes from the waterfront. It was spacious, clean and very well equipped. Restaurants,cafes and shops, including a supermarket, are all very close at hand. Considering the apartment is so central, noise level was very quiet. The cosmopolitan feel of Como soon engulfs you and you find yourself blending in very quickly. Entertainment in the evening consisted of various music events from popular to classical playing to audiences seated in the many quaint squares that are spread out throughout the town. Villa Elika provides an ideal base to explore other towns around the lake. It's only downside was that it gets extremely hot when temperatures are high - there is no air conditioning.
Response from the manager Thank you for your lovely review., it was very kind and appreciate your comments. We are in the process of adding an air conditioner for the summer 2014 season. Thank you again. Eric
“Great villa in downtown Como”
We stayed ten nights here recently and had a wonderful time. The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable. It is located about two blocks from the lake front and we were able to walk to dinner, the lake ferries, shopping, and other sights in town. Eric and Robin provided us with lots of TLC, booking us for cooking classes, drivers and dinner at a lake front village. We will certainly use this location again when we return the Lake Como.
“Beautiful location and interior..clean, clean, clean and roomy.”
We were very happy in this lovely apartment. The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed to cook. The washer was handy and the clothes really did dry in one day! The living room's best feature, aside from how large it was, was the beautiful carpet. The bathrooms, along with the whole apartment, were in very good shape. This was a tip top experience. The owners are warm, welcoming, helpful, lovely people. The links they provided as to the location and meeting point really helped with a smooth arrival. We highly recommend this space. We recommend eating in Bellagio and Cernobbio, not in Como. You must eat at Hotel Silvio in Bellagio!!!
“Unforgettable stay at Lake Como and Villa Elika”
We had a wonderful week long stay in Como in the lovely Villa Elika. The apartment is beautiful, immaculate and comfortable. Perfect location - one block from the lakefront and the ferry landing. Wonderful restaurants, shops, bakeries and gelateria were just steps out our front door. Our host, Eric, was wonderful. He met us at the apartment at 11:00 p.m. when we arrived from Milan to let us in and showed us everything in the apartment. He came back the next day to show us how to navigate the ferry schedule, plan outings and give restaurant recommendations. He even shipped home for us some clothing items we had left in the apartment! He and his wife, Robin could not have been more helpful and gracious. Our entire family had a fabulous stay in Lake Como and Villa Elika!
“Lake Como gem”
This condo is in a perfect location for walking to shops, restaurants, and the water taxis. The amenities were as described. The condo was very well appointed with everything we needed. So nice at the end of a long sightseeing day to come back to a place just like "home". The owners, Eric and Robin , could not have been more accommodating and helpful with suggestions for touring, eating, and shopping. We would highly recommend this condo and look forward to a return visit.
“Stunning 5 Star Villa in Como Centro”
Lake Como is an amazing place and should not be missed on any trip to Italy. It was a romantic memorable holiday as it was our 15th Wedding anniversary. We were thrilled to have found Villa Elika in downtown Como Center and our fabulous hosts, Eric and Robin. Thank you for your exceptional customer service before and during our stay. The villa is truly unique, one of the most beautiful we have ever stayed in. Large, gorgeous, spacious, very comfortable and beautifully decorated with all of the amenities we could ever need. Loved the high quality designer furnishings and all the personal touches in the villa. The views of the Como skyline and the Duomo were wonderful. We enjoyed our mornings on the terrace with a cappucino in hand. The location could not have been more perfect. The villa was within walking distance to all the great restaurants nearby as well as cafes and pastry stops. We were within walking distance to the two train stations, ferry port. Everything was right at our fingertips. There was also abundant public parking for our car nearby. The waterfront was just a few feet from the villa. Everything was absolutely perfect! We cannot wait to return to Villa Elika and Lake Como. Eric, you are a true gentleman and we cannot thank you enough for going beyond the call of duty to help us set up our day trips and answering our many questions. We probably drove you mad! :) Thank you ! Thank you! A unique fantastic once in a lifetime experience. Magical... Leann and Jason P.
