“Perfect Vacation Home”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We, family of eight, spanning three generations, spent a week at the Rivendell for a family reunion. Our group included 6 adults aged 67-32 and 3 kids, 6, 3.5 and 6months. The villa was perfect in cleanliness, the quality of all amenities and in all other respect, accurate to the letter in the description found on Trip Advisor. Would recommend warmly to both groups of adults as well as families with kids.

“Spectacular view from large, clean Swiss chalet”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The chalet is in Grindelwald, which is a great town to use as a base for exploring the Jungfrau region. It's a modern multi-story Swiss style chalet whose defining feature is a stunning view of Mt. Eiger from the living room, which can also be enjoyed from the deck while having a nice meal. Three of the bedrooms are on one floor and one bedroom is on the top floor, with the living/dining room and kitchen in between. While not super luxurious, it is very clean and well-kept and the kitchen has most everything anyone could want. The owner Vince was very responsive, responding to questions re the chalet, shopping, etc normally within a couple of hours, and GriwaRent, his agent in Grindelwald, was helpful and user-friendly. While there were only 4 of us, the chalet would be perfect for up to 8 people. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this chalet.

Quintessential Swiss chalet that anticipated all of our expectations down to the cowbells in the morning. Spacious, light airy rooms with stunning view of the Eiger from the balcony. Looks like a scene out of Lord of the Rings with door to the mines of Moria. Fields of wildflowers including wild pansies gentians and even peonies at high altitudes in end of May. The owners have anticipated all your needs from all the kitchen gadgets to great light for reading in the evening. Comfortable furniture wireless access great heating system..perfect!

The house, with an exterior in the traditional Grindelwald style, is modern and extremely spacious. Several bathrooms and toilets. Stunning views. A few minutes walk to the bakery, a very good restaurant just round the corner. Trains, buses and cable cars take you all over the Grindelwald/Jungfrau/Wengen/Interlaken area.
