“Spectacular!!!”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and a good friend and I stayed in Apartment C at Alphaven and it was perfect! It was clean and well equipped but it was the view that impressed the most. It is even better than it looks in the pictures. We LOVED staying here. It was a challenging walk down to Engelberg and back up but we did it most days and loved it!

John and Ursula were wonderful to deal with and made the whole rental process very easy and were also very helpful with suggesting place to see etc.

We hope we can go back to this beautiful place one day and enjoy all Alphaven and Switzerland have to offer. Spectacular!

My wife and I stayed at Alphaven on our European trip and it was the highlight of the trip. The views are spectacular as described and the location in Engelberg has to be one of the most beautiful in the Alps. The space is very spacious and clean with views from nearly every room. The owners are gracious and incredibly helpful. This is a VRBO listing you'd expect to be featured in their marketing materials. One heads up (especially for Americans).... Bring your own bathroom toiletries as they are not provided. Bottom line.... Do not hesitate to stay here. You will joy regret it

“Great Views & Location”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in Apt C for six nights and enjoyed it VERY much. We spent our time hiking the surrounding hills and took trams up the local mountains. There is plenty to do in town, but we also wanted to explore other areas of Switzerland. The countryside all over Switzerland is spectacular but we think Engelberg is about the most beautiful location we saw in Switzerland. And Alphaven offers among the very best views of this beautiful valley and mountains. We ended our days sipping wine on the balcony and watching daylight give way to the twinkling lights of Engelberg below. Apt C is very well supplied and quite comfortable. Everything worked and the apartment was well maintained. The owner was exceptional at communicating recommendations and responding to our numerous questions prior to our arrival. If you want a beautiful apartment in a beautiful location this is it!

A wonderful place to stay. We stayed in Apt. C+ with our family and our very good friends and their children (4 adults and 4 teenagers). We had a fantastic time and felt the property was very well represented. It is just as beautiful as the pictures represent. The views are breathtaking, the apartment and views are so unique and special. We loved sipping our coffee in the morning and looking out at the ever-changing view. We loved exploring the area in the day and coming back to sip wine and enjoy the evening views. John, the owner is an amazing photographer and his amazing photos are displayed in the entry hall way stairs. As previous reviewers have stated, there are many steps up to the apartment, but it is well worth it. Also, would definitely say a rental car is good to have driving up to the apartment as it is a good 15 minutes walk uphill from the wonderful town. We did the walk each day which was some good exercise, but I wouldn't have wanted to do the walk more than once a day. Would highly recommend this place to friends and family.

“Fantastic !”
Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and 2 children stayed in Alphaven in february and enjoyed every minute of it.
The house itself is very beautiful and well equipped and view is absolutely amazing ! We received very good and detailed instructions on how to get there and what could be done in the area.
We will certainly return to Engelbert and when we do we will stay in Alphaven again.

Thanks you for a great stay, see you next time.

Three of us stayed in apartment B, the place is fantastic and John was on hand to answer our questions and pointed out some good bars and restaurants.

The views from the terrace are just amazing and we have already started discussing returning in the summer!
