Value for money

Good value for money . They have washing and cooking amenities . Francesca was helpful.
Far from train and ferry , especially with luggage and quite a steep climb for older people and kids . No wifi , dont believe the ads . Door knobs falling off .
The appartment was in a fantastic location and spotlessly clean.
The sofa bed gave me possibly the worst nights sleep ever. We have a young daughter and put her in the main bedrom on the first night so that we could relax in the lounge. The second night this was not an option!!
Very large apartment, maybe 100m2, 2 BR, large LR. Great views of the lake. Centrally located.
Connected to Wi-Fi, but could not access internet. Probably my computer's fault. Bed leans in towards center a little bit.
A great location near the town square with a good view of Lake Como. The apartment is very well equipped and clean. It's a bonus having 2 separate bathrooms for 4 adults. There are many restaurants nearby.
Convenient location just off the main square. Two balconies and big windows with views of the lake. Suits two couples as rooms are on separate levels. Big living area.
Data limit must be set really low as the wifi worked for the first hour or so and then it didn't.
We loved our place at Sandrahouse. Our three days that we stayed were amazing and the accomodations were great.
The only complaint that I have is that Sandrahouse was not pictured in the on line information. I was looking forward to enjoying the balcony but Sandrahouse did not have a balcony. Our place was great but was not what I had expected.
We loved the clean decor and the layout. There is a partial view of the lake and literally just steps away from the plaza. It has all the facilities you'd want.
The only thing missing was a full view, but that wasn't promised.
Views from the apartment were fabulous Location just off the town square perfect Spacious
WiFi did not work Francesca was not timely in replying to our queries (mainly about the lack of wifi) Could add another couch for comfort No English speaking TV channels
Nice location and clean apartment close to Varenna square. Friendly owners and quite atmosphere in the middle of town. Wi-Fi acceptable and nice to have washing capabilities.
Lack of cutlery, bowles and glasses for preparation of own food. Vehicles disturb to some extent in the morning, especially since light come through windows. Price is ok but quite expensive since view is missing.
Clean and cool with all necessary amenities for a pleasant stay. The location was phenomenal, right in the heart of the town with easy access to the waterfront and waterfront walkway. We stayed 3 nights and it was not enough.
I was not expecting this apartment, which I did not see pictures of before I booked it. I cannot confirm this now, months later, but I do not believe the pictures of Sandrahouse (1 BR with "lake view"-where we stayed) were on the website. Therefore, I was expecting a balcony. It appears that the website has been updated, but be aware that there are other apartments besides the one shown on the main Varennahouse page. Also, we did not expect to pay cash. It wasn't a problem and we had time to get the cash, but it would have been nice to know before the trip that cash was expected rather than a credit card.

Uncomfortable beds and no wifi during stay
Lovely views lots of space located near to restaurants and transport. Very pleasant stay.

Watch your feet when stepping on and off the balcony.
Great location,very usable layout.
lots of space and a great view!
kettle did not work and when we told the contact about it we were told just push the button! The light was on but the kettle actually was not working...would have appreciated them coming to check that we were correct...it made making tea and coffee diffi ult.
Well equipped kitchenette to make light meals. Cozy and comfortable apartment. We will stay again!!
We stayed at the Barneyhouse and the apartment was wonderful. Clean, spacious, with a great balcony which afforded amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The location could not have been better - right in the center of town. Perfect in every way! The only thing I didn't like was that we only stayed 2 nights!
The location was central to everything and having a full kitchen was great for breakfasts and whatever other meals one wished to prepare. The view from above the town was wonderful and magical. Everything was very clean and new. The owner was willing to help us with our bags, both at arrival and departure. Varenna was one of the best places we visited and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be in a much quieter place than in a city.
I would have liked to receive clearer directions on the location of the apartment from the ferry terminal. Fortunately, someone helped us. Often in Europe, climbing stairs is part of getting to your room. However, the lack of a railing on the second flight of stairs made it a bit hazardous, especially coming down. Anyone with balance issues should have someone with them to help. It needs to be clear that both bedrooms are upstairs, so one couple needed to use the first floor bathroom in the middle of the night. It also would be nice to provide soap in the shower. Payment needs to be in Euros-cash.
Wonderful and spacious apartment in a quiet neighborhood, 10 minute walk from the train station. Stunning views of the lake from every room.
Such a great little find, amazing view of the lake, just up the hill from the main lake side restaurants and two seconds from the main square. Well stocked with sugar, detergent, iron and good hair dryer. Immaculately clean well decorated and very secure. Francy was helpful.
Only 1 not so firm pillow. Bit rushed to leave on our last day so check that your intended departure time is ok with the cleaner. The church bells start at 7am but there's no escaping them from anywhere in varenna!
Great location in this charming village. The apartment offered great views and we will definitely will return.
