Thank you for a wonderful holiday! We all loved the villa and it's gorgeous pool. Your team, in UK and Menaggio, couldn't do enough for us.
August 2012Thank you for soliciting feedback. The property was beautiful and reflected the photos on your website. We were very pleased that we had the complex nearly to ourselves, and the welcome bottle of prosecco was a nice touch. Robert, USA
We stayed in La Perla Di Sonenga Panoramica in June. The floorplan of the property is fantastic and the views are exceptional. Every room has a fantastic view. However, I cannot completely recommend this property. One of the reasons we chose this property was that it was represented to have air conditioning. We could barely get the a/c to work on the bedroom floors. We were told that the property allows very few kilowatts so there was not much power to cool the place. We were also told there was WIFI. The elevator was broken. The parking is small and difficult to manuveur. One last item to note is that the washer and dryer work great, but are in the garage which has no access to the apartment. One must go down several flights of stairs and outside to get to the garage which was quite inconvenient. The home itself it spacious comfortable. Happy Holiday homes provides you with a fantastic concierge, who arranges many amazing activities and restaurants for you. We were very pleased with him. The location of Menaggio is an ideal location for Lake Como. This property is nice, but small issues need to be noted before choosing such an expensive property.

****ANSWER: Thank you for your review. THE ELEVATOR AND WIFI ARE ALL WORKING. Unfortunately during the week of Mrs Smith's stay, the WIFI was not working and the elevator broke. As the elevator is a huge machine to fix, we could only do this once they had left. Now there will be no problem walking down the flights of stairs! We are pleased all in all you had a great time! The car park is perfect fine - I know it well .. and all the car parking spaces and measurements are inline with the building regulations. Thank you, HHH Menaggio
