“Amazing Vacation Spot”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

As a family that travels a lot with two toddlers we've stayed in a lot of holiday apartments, instead of hotels, over the past couple of years for convenience. This one was hands-down our favorite one so far. We chose this apartment at the recommendation of another family who raved about it and they did not steer us wrong. The apartment was impeccably clean and had a very homey and comfortable feel. The correspondence with the owners before arrival was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was very well stocked - the best we've had so far. We LOVED the location - Lauterbrunnen is one of our favorite places we've ever been. We enjoyed walking around the valley and taking the various cable cars/funiculars/gondolas/trains up into the mountains for some spectacular hikes and views. The apartment was very quiet and we never heard noise from the neighbors. There is a nice campground a short walk away that was super convenient for picking up small amounts of grocery items as well as take away food for the nights we didn't feel like cooking or eating out. The only problem with our stay was that it was just too short (and we were there for over a week!). We definitely hope to return someday soon.

“Fabulous apartment, stunning location - highly recommend”

We spent a week here with our two children (6&4yo) and had a fabulous time, the apartment was first class, comfortable, clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for self catering.
The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning and the location is perfect - close to the bus stop which connects with the train or just a short river walk into the town. There is a lovely restaurant and shop only a few mins walk away in the campsite. Our kids had plenty to do, there is a park a few minutes walk away and a swimming pool in the centre of Lauterbrunnen which also has a trampoline, table tennis and table football. You can take the cable car up one side of the valley or mountain train up the other side to Wengen and with Interlaken only about 15mins away on the train we where never short of things to do.
I would highly recommend this apartment and the area as a holiday destination.

“Comfortable and cosy - worth a repeat stay”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

This was our second time staying with young children and another couple. The owners made every effort and succeeded to make our stay as comfortable as possible. A true home away from home. That's why we decided to stay again in April 2013. The valley is ideal and the location provides easy access to both Wengen and Murren and all the attractions nearby. Highly recommended.

“Home from Home with an unbelievable view.”

Location and view are out of this world, public transport access within 100m, excellent services all day and night. Access to the mountains is so simple with lots of hiking areas all around. The apartment is absolutely spotless, comfortable and very relaxing. It suits a group or family with plenty of storage and dedicated parking area. Close to shops and bar everything is within short walking distance. The owners are so helpful, friendly and supportive, you just couldnt get any better. We'll be back for sure.

“Gem of a place - Amazing location!!!!!”

I stayed with a couple of friends for 5 days. The apartment is in a fantastic location with local shop in close proximity, allocated parking, adjacent open spaces and great transport links. Inside; the apartment is spotless with a large open plan living / dining area which would cater easily for a much larger party and children. Furnishings are top quality, which add to that "homely feel" and to sit out on the balcony with the views of the mountains is special to say the least. Messy wet boots, skies, snowboards etc can be securely stored in a separate room to dry. The local bus stop was approx 100 yards away which ran every 20mins to any number of places (our most frequent being Lauterbrunnen station, approx 2-3 minutes away). This will certainly be a place for me to visit again with friends or with my family and this apartment will be top of my list.
