“Perfect base for Grindelwald activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Chalet Kiwi was the perfect home base for all the hiking and excursions in the Grindelwald area. The chalet was comfortably furnished, immaculately clean, and spacious enough for the family to spread out and have some personal space. It was very convenient to have a second bathroom and access to a washing machine. The chalet is in a quieter, more residential section of the village but just a short walk to the train station, grocery, and shops. The view from the balcony was spectacular!

We found the owner to be very courteous, helpful, and easy to work with. Everything was as stated and agreed upon...no surprises! We would definitely recommend this property.

Liked best: Privacy of an apartment but close to everything we wanted to do
Liked least: There were several rules about handling the garbage, but they were easy to follow.

“Lovely apartment in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This Swiss style chalet is situated just a few minutes walk from the town centre and main railway station, perfect if you have little ones as nothing is too far away. We were able to park our car up for the entire stay and walked to the various cable cars etc which was great.

The chalet has just about everything you could want. They didn't have an iron but Girwarent were able to loan us one, problem solved. The kitchen is well equipped and the extra toilet downstairs was a bonus. There were loads of towels etc, it was very clean and our stay there was very comfortable. It really felt like a home away from home.

“This is a well equipped, very comfortable home with outstanding views!”

Our stay at Chalet Kiwi was great. The chalet was equipped with everything we needed. It was immaculate when we arrived. The views from the front deck are world class! The beds in both bedrooms are quite comfortable. We would spend an active day outside, then go back to our comfortable chalet to sit on the deck and watch the sun set behind the mountains! Awesome! The town center was a short, pleasant walk away. We will certainly return some day.

Liked best: The mountain views from the chalet.
Liked least: The 22:00 - 8:00 quiet time too a little getting used to. Certainly not bad, though.

“Sensational Week in Grindelwald with Superb Base”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011 for a stay in May 2011
4
people found this review helpful

We have just enjoyed the most incredible week in Grindelwald enjoying the beauty of the snow capped mountains and exquisite spring flora. Chalet Kiwi was an extraordinarily comfortable base that was superbly equipped for our stay. The pictures on the web site of the chalet do complete justice to how it presents in real life. The views of the surrounding mountains, however, were simply mesmerising and no picture could hope to do them justice. My dealings with the owners could not have been easier and I was most appreciative of their attention to detail and desire for us to enjoy our stay. I would thoroughly recommend this place and would hope to revisit at some point in the future.

“Amazing Scenery, Comfy Chalet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2010 for a stay in September 2010

person found this review helpful

Next time we go to Grindelwald we will definitely be staying at the Chalet Kiwi. Great location, off the main street, yet a 5 minute walk to downtown.

Super clean and cozy. Cheaper than staying at hotel or b&b. Only stayed 2 nights but they managers were very accomodating. Extremely friendly staff at Grinwarent. Expecially Stefanie.

Can't wait to bring children back and stay for a week. Stayed here as 4 adults. Perfect.

Make sure you eat at the Memory Restaurant below Hotel Eiger. As well as go for a drink at bar under Hotel Spinne. Fun!
