“The stay of my dreams!”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I can not imagine a more perfect, romantic place to stay. Every view was breathtaking, whether is was raining, sunny, or nighttime. Everything we needed for the stay was provided in the apartment, and the owners were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We couldn't ask for anything better, and we look forward to returning soon!

“Aug 2015 family vacation”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Alphaven in august for 3 nights - family of 5
John was very helpful through the whole process
The property was great and in a super location.
Unfortunately we had fog and clouds all 3 days we stayed, but that just allowed us to use the wood fireplace to enjoy some cozy fires.
Everything was ready for us on arrival just as explained.
Candy was on site to introduce us to the property and amenities - everything you would need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay.
If you are looking for an unique location and great accomodations, then we would recommend Alphaven.
Thanks John

“Breathtaking emotions with the most wonderful views”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The most breathtaking views I have ever seen, wonderful house with glass walls allowing to see the views wherever you are. Peaceful site, with lovely neighbours. Fantastic site in summer for trekking, biking, or just relax visiting the surroundings. A plce to return without any doubt!

“All you could ask for.”
Reviewed December 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Located on a hillside overlooking Engleberg, this well equipped apartment met or exceeded our expectations. After viewing the property online and reading the reviews, expectations were high and we were not disappointed. We drove to Engleberg and the car came in handy transporting groceries up to the property. You can walk to and from town, but it is a workout if you are hauling food especially if you are older. I recommend getting the Tell rail pass which gives you access to all of central Switzerland including railroad, cable cars, funiculars, and lake steamers. Rain or drizzle can be expected each week. I, like the other reviewers of this property, are hard pressed to find anything to complain about.

“Most Beautiful Luxury Apartment in Engelberg”
Reviewed November 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We, a family of 4, stayed in Alphaven's Apt. A for 4 days in Sep 2014.

We as a family have been to many holidays but by far, this was the best of our time ever.

Ursula was most helpful.

The place was perfect in every sense, very clean, peaceful, and meticulously decorated.

The town itself has many attractions for tourists.

The views and facilities within the flat are indescribable.

We would recommend this place 100%.

We had such happy memories from this place and would love to return back in the future.

“Perfect Luxury Apartment in Engelberg”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We, a family of 5, stayed in Alphaven's Apt. A for nearly 2 weeks in October.
What can I say. This is one spectacular apartment in the Swiss Alps! We've been in Switzerland several times, and Alphaven is by far the best property we've been to.

Everything you see in the pictures is there and much more. The apartment is very spacious (We had no trouble with accommodating 3 kids), has a luxurious finish, very tastefully designed, incredibly equipped (Mac, printer, every possible utensil, Wi-Fi, a fireplace, electrically adjustable bed, books and DVD's and the list goes on and on). There's also a Sauna, washing machine and a dryer in a communal area.

The view from every floor-to-ceiling window, which surrounds the apartment, is breathtaking. You'll feel like in exceptionally beautiful postcard. The inside is so pampering and the views right from the balcony are so good you'll be tempted to stay in with a good wine, watch in awe and enjoy. Stunning. Add that to a great hot tub facing the Titlis and the surrounding snowy mountains – and it really doesn't get much better, anywhere in the world.

John is easy to work with, very honest and attentive.
Engelberg is a great place to stay in, there are numerous activities right in the vicinity of the village, and even more within no more than an hour drive. We used the Tell-Pass for easy transportation throughout the region.

Booking in Alphaven is a no-brainer, warmly and wholeheartedly recommended. We already booked our winter vacation there!
Thanks for everything John, we had a phenomenal vacation and a perfect stay, and we are coming back…

“The Most Amazing Place EVER!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We wanted a ski trip and Alphaven was the reason why we chose Engelberg. The owner John was incredibly helpful and made the whole process very easy for us. We stayed 4 nights, unfortunately it was not enough. The place is INCREDIBLE! Views are beyond belief. The apartment is very very spacious, was spotlessly clean. Kitchen had everything, raclette, fondue maker, Nespresso machine. The bedroom has the most comfortable bed which you can adjust with remote control, the bathroom is huge! We wanted to spend more time skiing but because the apartment was so amazing, we ended up spending more time in the apartment. The hot tub outside is a nice touch, you can just sit there for hours admiring the view. I´m pretty sure I won´t find anywhere else this beautiful. Candy who was on Apartment D was incredibly nice and helped us throughout our visit making sure we got everything. This is a really special place! If you have the chance, stay there! You won´t regret it! We already miss our trip to Switzerland :D
