Hi everyone, this is my first review ever about anything so sorry Catherine It took me so long. I think is an understatement to say this but this review express my personal opinion about my 7 day stay in Catherine’s duplex in Lugano Last July.
My stay in Catherine’s duplex was aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
First, you can’t find a better host, Just for starters we were supposed to get their around noon, but we got there at 7PM. She waited for us at the station and gave us a ride to her duplex. She took the time to explain how the duplex work, appliances, lights, TV etc. She explained us and also left a booklet with maps included of how to get to the nearest pharmacy, doctor, supermarket or any store that we could possibly need. She also left her phone number for any emergency but best of all she introduces us the neighbors, by the way, excellent people, for any emergency we could have. She even offered her fridge full of food, it was Sunday and every store was closed.
When I saw the listing the first that caught my attention was the view but when you see all the amenities and equipment that this duplex has, like motorized blinds or retractable sunshade over the tea table covered terrace, kitchen and oven with fully electric controls. I and my mother enjoyed the breakfast and the tea with an amazing view. After dinner we watched TV with the lights off so we can see the Lugano city lights at night. Believe me you’ll never get tired of that. At first I couldn’t believe it but there is a well-equipped elevator to get to her duplex in the 2nd floor. Within her apartment you have to use the stairs of course. The listing doesn’t give you justice. There is an extra room that is a study and I used it every day to plan my trips in my laptop, with a good internet connection.
The duplex was functional and super clean the neighbors always there to give you a hand, also super quiet. By car 15 to 20 min to down town Lugano or less if you want to go to the post office or supermarket. My only challenge was to drive in those little streets, but I already knew them it wasn’t a surprise at all and if you do not want to drive in little streets better you don’t go to Europe at all.
We enjoyed every single day staying at Catherine’s duplex in Lugano.
Catherine sorry for the late review, you have an awesome duplex in an awesome place, I hope I can rent your apartment again soon……
