About Armando Califano

Owner. Hospitality and Travel Consultant in US and Central America

Armando Califano purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Armando Califano chose Poconos

Great for the outdoor lovers. Hiking, biking, canoeing, relax, fishing, barbecues, etc.

Just finished renovating this chalet by giving a touch of rustic but plenty of space and comforts.

That' s what makes it: ONE OF A KIND!

Very nice touches throughout the house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the "One of a Kind" home. The property had so many nice touches and was beautifully decorated. The owner clearly has pride in ownership. The sheets supplied were of nice quality and very soft. There were a variety of pots, pans and cooking supplies. The owner also had left dish and laundry soap and paper products.

There were televisions with cable in every room and the wifi worked well. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were nicely decorated. If my family returned to Arrowhead Lakes we would definitely rent this house again!

Felt like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My mother, father, boyfriend and me took a weekend getaway even though it was rainy and wet we made the best of if. We hiked bushkill and a few other local falls I love and have been to. We cooked hamburgers and hot dogs on the gigantic grill, played fooseball during the rain showers, and sat by the fire pit we donated to the house. The house was well equipped with everything you needed and then some honestly. The lighting fixtures and decorations were unique and fun to explore. Thanks again Armando for being for kind and curtious during our stay making sure everything was satisfactory. We will absolutely be returning for a weeks stay next time and looking forward to it.

You will want to return to this Villa, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I and another couple rented this awesome home for a few days. We regret not requesting more time here because this place was everything you would want for a relaxing time in the Poconos. The home was beautifully decorated like an Italian villa. The home was not only very stylish but well equipped compared to other pocono homes I have rented. No wonder why this place is unavailable for most of the summer; probably returning renters. The owner is very responsive and works hard to make your experience as stress-free as possible. We want to return-for more time. The only thing about Arrowhead Lake (once you get over the extra community fees) is the strange trash disposal requirements (can't they just have a simple dumpster somewhere) but of course these not the owner's doing.

Absolutely wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family, along with my sister's family had the most amazing Poconos vacation at this beautiful chalet. Armando was such a great host, very quick to respond with any questions we had, and very helpful in all aspects of our renting experience.

His home was so charming and comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities in the community, including the pools and beaches.

We definitely will be back!!

Great find. Warm cozy and clean. Everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

Owner was helpful and available last minute. Had arrived earlier than rest of party, was comfortable enough to "sleep well" in a strange place. Nice cabin like with tasteful upgrades, modern feel with everything you may need to cook nice meals. Quiet on dead end road. Plenty of room for a family of 6 + cot for 7th. Location great with amenities nearby for lake or pool swimming, hiking, biking, fishing, canoe/kayak. Local farmer market awesome, seen deer 2 of 4 days up close and personal. Weather was good 60-84. Too warm for fireplace, next time.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented and stayed many times in PA. This house was one of the best places we've stayed at. The layout of the home was great and very nicely done. The home offer the comfort we were looking for. The canoe and bikes was a nice added treat. I also liked how every room, including the kitchen had a TV. The location was perfect and the community had a lot to offer, including the new club house that had pool tables, and other amenities. We plan to return again next year for a longer stay. Great place!!!
