Machno and Teresa are such excellent hosts and the apartment is a perfect little place to spend a few days exploring Lake Como. After our flight was delayed, Machno still waited for us to check-in, and was very friendly and understanding, even at 2am! Communication was excellent throughout, and it was very reassuring to know that Machno was waiting for us even at such a late hour! The apartment is very clean, very well stocked with basic provisions, a great size for two people, everything works well, and is in a great location. I really couldn't find any fault with it whatsoever. Rezzonico is a lovely, sleepy little Italian village on the shores of the Lake, and makes a for picturesque and relaxing base to explore the surrounding area. Not much to do there itself, but it is only a short drive away to Como, Mennaggio, Lugano and all the other lovely places to visit in the area. Highly recommended!

Rezzonico is a quiet and delightful place, and provides a wonderful escape from city life. Machno's apartment is the cleanest, nicest, best provisioned airbnb we've ever experienced! The grocery store and pizza place around the corner are great. The lakefront and little trails are really nice. Machno and Teresa went out of their way to make our stay easy and comfortable. We hope to visit the area again sometime soon, and we will definitely stay at Machno's when we do!

The apartment is located in a small town on the shore of Lake Como. The entire town is ancient, with stone buildings and cobblestone walkways. Yet, the apartment ihas been completely renovated and has very amenity. Macho made sure to leave the stone walls exposed, large windows and original doors. The apartment is right on the Piazza across from the old church from the 1400s. Parking is available a short walk away up a cobblestone alley, as is a small market, a bar with great coffe and pastries, a full service restaurant with delicious offerings, and a pizza restaurant with the best pizza we have had on our visit. It is a short drive from Menaccio where you can shop and take ferries to other towns on the lake. Macho provided us with a bottle of local wine, as well as, all the food staples we needed. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and hope to return again.

I'm really happy that you appreciated my apartment and that you spent a pleasant holiday on our beautiful Lake. Thank you for your nice words and thank you for your suggestion about how to write instructions for guests in a better way. Concerning the nocturnal light in the sleeping room coming from the pedestrian street, it's enough to close the external shutters, even keeping the windows opened so that you can feel fresh air ... Sorry if my mum didn't show it to you on your arrival; we are so used to external shutters that maybe she didn't think that in USA this is not so common.

The host canceled this reservation 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Response from Machno:
As I already explained, Sandra, the cancellation of this reservation doesn't depend on my will. I'm really, really sorry about it, but only today I received the automatic weekly report from the german travel agency with whom I collaborate, that informed me about a previous booking. My e-mail provider considered spam the real-time mail that I received on Monday as soon as those guests booked my apartment, and only this morning, on Sunday, I saw the mistake. One more time, I offer you my most sincere apologies, and, to remedy to inconvenience, I offer you 25% discount on next stay you will want to spend in my apartment, during this season, or in the next.

This was a great location and experience. The apartment is in a very old, peaceful and historic area of Como and was everything we wanted. Very clean and excellent facilities. Machno was also an excellent host - picked us up at the railway station and gave us an excellent briefing on the area and the apartment. All in all, a very good experience.
