“Barrie was the most friendly with his wife, and the PLACE was incredible, the view in picture is nothing compared to the place. We just wanted to stay in and look at the lake all day and night. Then Barrie sent recommendations and was here to help anytime. I remember when we needed to get out we couldn’t find any taxis and he found one for us. It really was a magical experience- Ill go back and advise all my family and friends.”

“The best penthouse in como hosted by Barrie and his team. They were kind, caring, attentive , flexible and truly here to make our stay magical. Best of all the place is fantastic, renovated and has best view in como!”

AMAZING and WOW!!! What a view!!!
“We read about the view ahead of time and thought we set the bar high in our minds, but the view surpassed all of our expectations. You are literally on top of Lake Como when looking out through the ceiling-to-floor glass windows. Additionally, Como City is just a short walk away. Would recommend this Condo to anyone desiring a memorable vacation in a safe, amazing location. Additionally, Barrie was there for our every request.
Would stay again in a heartbeat.”

It was fantastic, even better than the pictures!!! I strongly recommend it. You will not find a better place in Como!!!!
Nelson, Oct 2023

Barrie’s place was exactly as advertised. Beautiful, spotless, and amaging views But the big big bonus was Barrie was so responsive not only to our questions but also proactively with dinner and activity recommendations. We rented a boat, and 4 hours on Lake Como was one of the most magical experiences ever. He even offered a late checkout and arranged transportation for us to align with our departure train schedule. I would highly recommend Barrie’s place to anyone!

Barrie was the perfect host!!His home was very comfortable with a breathtaking view of Lake Como!
Rose, Sept 2023

“What an amazing place – views are breathtaking!!! Pictures do not do this place justice. Barrie is an amazing communicator and was always on – he helped us secure transportation from the Milan train station and back to MXP airport (way better price and secure) – gave us all the information we needed for great food locations and any support we needed. Checked in several times to make sure we were taking care of. Unit has a tone of amenities (if you like cooking you have everything you would want). Top notch coffee machine, tons of fridges and wine cooler. Wifi worked great and you have a ton of entertainment options. A/C was great – also everyone talks about the walk to the unit it is not that bad and one can get to the side paths very quickly if you know where to go.”
Casey-Aug 2023

“This apartment is wonderful- I have no words to describe how perfect it is
Obviously the views are incredible and the way you can see the lake from every room even the toilet!!
The AC is fantastic and much needed when we were there
The roof terrace was only ever used by us – so was very private
Barrie and Julie are just the most attentive hosts and we cannot wait to return to the apartment and will also look to rent others managed by them
The best airbnb experience we have ever had.”
Jane-August 2023

“I couldn’t have chosen better. Regarding the design, comfort, size and view, the apartment is on a different level when compared with other properties around Como.
I’d love to put more emphasis on the amazing views, but one really has to see that in real.
Our host Barrie was just 👌, providing us with an extensive list of places to visit around Como.
Everything 10/10. Thank you!”
Valentin-July 2023

“This apartment is beautiful and spacious with enough room for the five of us (2 adults and 1 child) and has fantastic views of the lake and Como. The 10-15 minute walk to Como helped us have our daily walk quota and made us enjoy that extra gelato! Very relaxing to come back to each day after travelling to the other towns around the lake. We enjoyed meals on the rooftop terrace. Barrie is a very helpful and gracious host. Would definitely come back and stay here” Barbara July 2023

“Stunning views of Lake Como and fantastic hosts, we’re incredibly responsive and friendly. Even got us some lovely wines for our stay! Would recommend”
Rory, July 2023

“This property was absolutely beautiful and offered grand views of lake Como. Our host was wonderful and very communicative before check-in and throughout our stay. He was so kind to offer many suggestions around town and willing to help schedule excursions. I could not recommend staying here enough. Close walk to town and stunning views, you can’t go wrong. An experience I will never forget!”
Brittany, July 2023

“Can’t be happier with our stay!
This is the perfect place to stay in como, if you rent a car you’ve got easy parking and can therefor get anywhere easily on the lake. Restaurants are only a 10 minute walk and our host gave so many excellent recommendations as well as being extremely responsive to any of our questions!
You won’t be disappointed if you rent this place it is stunning!!”
Alex, July 2023

Views at sunset were sensational!
Definitely will be my next go to if heading back to Como!
Compliments to Barrie and Julie for a memorable stay!”
Adriano, June 2023

The property is all it’s cracked up to be. Magnificent & 5 minutes walk to the centre of Como.

5 of 5 stars!

This property is amazing & only a 5 minute walk to the centre of Como. The photos and the views are exactly what you get but in real lifte they are so much better. It’s a magnificent place to just keep coming back to.

Italian appartments were fantastic as were Barrie & Julie. Anything you needed they were more than happy to help with. I could go on & on but just book it and come you won’t be disappointed.

5 Star Panoramic View of Lake Como.
We really enjoyed the spectacular view this place provides. Watching boats and ferries come and go along with watching the sea plane traffic provided just enough activity to enjoy but not distracting at all. 10 minute walk to restaurants was no real issue unless older then you may consider taking a taxi up.

September 2022

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the penthouse. It has a lovely location and the pictures don’t do it justice. It combines great views with a short walk to all the facilities needed including multiple restaurants, stores and the ferry terminal. I would highly recommend a stay here

August 2022

August 2022

Amazing location on lake Como with views from every room, they are better than the photos. clean and spacious, has all the amenities one could need on a vacation rental as expected.
Great communication and recommendations by Barrie and Julie also the welcome by Cinzia was very nice.

August 2022

This is an amazing property overlooking beautiful Lake Como. My family and I stayed here for 8 nights and truly loved it. It’s ideally located very close to the city center, and the unit has been remodeled with top notch appliances and furnishings. Air conditioning which is very much needed during the summer months works in every room. I can’t say enough positive things about this penthouse! The view upon entry to the unit is breathtaking! Additionally the hosts, Barrie and Julie were exceptionally welcoming and helped us with may suggestions and reservations. It was very comforting to know we had hosts we can rely on since this was the first time we were in Como. That said, we will be coming back for sure.

July 2022

House very clean, amazing view of the lake from living room and kitchen as well as the bedrooms. All what you need.
Best house I have stayed in and most wonderful views. If I am back to Como diffidently I will hunt for the same next time.
Owner very helpful and responsive to any clarification for the whole trip advise.
