Reviewed February 27, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Wow what an apartment,their website shows all the amenities,views,reviews,
etc etc.But you have to go there to really appreciate the beauty of the apartment,
bathroom,bedroom,hot tub,kitchen,lounge,under floor heating,cosy decor and lighting,ample storage,great walk in wardrobe,veranda,spectacular views,watching weather change so dramatically before your eyes.We have never been to such a gorgeous area and apartment.Seeing is believing,can't wait to go back which we are doing this summer.Its a great walk to the centre of the town,say 15 minutes max,
Lovely walk in the snow as it was when we went.Town itself majcal,with many attractions,interesting restaurants,hotels and bars.
Have to stop here we could go on and on all good though,our recommendation try for yourself.

“Most amazing Alpine chalet I'll ever experience”
Reviewed February 22, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Switzerland is a magical place - every city, town, village, etc we saw was 'life as it SHOULD be' if everything was perfect in the world. Yes, it costs a lot of money to take a vacation in the Swiss Alps - but it's worth every penny. Specifically, staying at John & Ursula's AlpHaven chalet in Engleberg was the pinnacle of our Swiss winter vacation. I wish time would have slowed down while we stayed in Apt C. Our eyes didn't know where to look: the heart-breakingly beautiful views of the valley, peaks and winter wonderland outside the floor-to-ceiling windows, or the amazing architectural design of the ceiling with it's massive wood beams, trusses and perfectly engineered joins. The warmth and character of the wood inside the chalet was awe-inspiring. Was it expensive? Yes. Was it worth it? Double yes! Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the chalet was the guest book which had been signed by years and years of past guests. Universally they GUSHED over the beauty of their stay and that their number 1 priority was to some day come back. The measure of how happy these guests were with their vacation in the chalet was reflected in how thrilled they were that John & Ursula shared their home with them. Can you imagine a guest at the Ritz Hotel writing something so gracious? Probably not because the Ritz can't even approach the emotional experience one feels when they enter their AlpHaven apartment. In the guest book nobody mentioned expenses or costs - they only talked about how valuable the life experience was for them and their family while staying in AlpHaven. So please don't think about the daily/weekly cost of staying in this chalet. Just know that whatever you pay will be the best deal you've ever had.
You need to be in relatively healthy physical condition to walk up and down the mountain from the town up to Alp Haven. The whole time we were in Engleberg I don't believe we saw 1 overweight person. Everybody walked, smiled and laughed. There are no fast food joints, didn't witness much smoking, and it was obvious that physically fit people are the norm in this town. We were a LONG way from home.

“Perfect stay in the mountains with our young family”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in January 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alphaven. We were travelling with our two children (18 months and 4.5 years) and this apartment was perfect for us. The constantly changing views of the valley as the weather came and went were breathtaking. The apartment itself was spacious and well suited to a family. The free bus into town was just a short walk away when all of us went out, and the town is within walking distance if you are moderately fit (moreso for the way back than the way in). The attractions around Engelberg are well known, but highlights included introducing our Australian children to snow and tobogganing, catching the gondolas up to the top of Mt Titlis and walking through the inside of a glacier as well as the wonderful cheese available in the Abbey. It will be a great ambition of ours to return to Alphaven and experience it all again.

“Absolutely stunning!”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed for four days at Alphaven as part of our recent holiday in Switzerland. The apartment is amazing, very well equipped with everything you would need for a short stay. Two comfortable bedrooms, sizeable bathroom and galley kitchen with cooker, microwave and dishwasher. The view from the balcony was certainly a selling point and does not disappoint - absolutely stunning and there were times when it was almost impossible to tear yourself away from it! However, you do have to if you want to enjoy the nearby attractions, particularly Mount Titlis and Mount Brunni, both well worth a visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alphaven and cannot recommend it highly enough. A magical home in a magical place!

“The nicest place with the best view in Engelberg”
Reviewed March 9, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

John and his wife were lovely hosts, with the perfect apartment for a family stay and a trip to enjoy the snow and fun on mt. Titlis. The kitchen had everything we needed for a "cozy night cooking in", the beds were all quite lovely and comfortable. The apartment was perfectly clean. The water pressure in the shower was excellent and the water stayed warm through 5 showers. The most breathtaking part was the view over the lovely town surrounded by the perfect view of the mountains and valley. If you have the option, this is the right place to stay. You can not find a nicer place in the valley anywhere.
