GRINDELWALD HIGH STANDARD APARTMENT

Grindelwald Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom apartment

Set on the 1st floor of a pretty wooden chalet we have an additional luxury 3 bedroom apartment available not far from Grindelwald center.

At 158m2 it is spacious and furnished to a very high standard in contemporary style. There is a beautiful, fully equipped modern kitchen with top of the range appliances and granite worktops. A master bedroom and master bathroom, a double bedroom, twin bedroom and a further bathroom. The living/dining area is open plan with a fire place. The apartment boasts a stunning 150m2 South facing terrace offering breathtaking views of the Eiger, and valley below. The apartment also contains a flat-screen TV with satellite and DVD player.

Summer season: Whether you want a relaxing escape or an action packed adventure, Grindelwald has it all on offer. The Jungfrau region has around 500 kilometres of hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulty with fantastic opportunities to spot wildlife such as ibex and chamois or various alpine birds. Grindelwald is the departure point for the most spectacular mountain cog railways in Europe. The mountain restaurants are open throughout the year offering breathtaking views. Cycle routes vary from gentle along the valley floor to steep mountain passes or proper downhill tracks. Bicycles are easily rented in the village and are allowed on most mountain trains. The lakes have lidos and beaches all along the shores and there is a heated open air swimming pool in the village. For those who want more adrenalin, white water rafting, canoing, mountaineering, para gliding, hang gliding, bungy jumping and skydiving are all available in the surrounding area.

Winter season: Winter in Grindelwald is ideal for skiers and non-skiers alike: There are 213km of pistes for skiers and snowboarders and 45 chair lifts, cable cars and trains to choose from in the Jungfrau region. Grindelwald is nestled in the valley between the ski resorts of First and Mannlichen and offers easy and fast access to both areas. You can follow the tracks of famous skiers on the Lauberhorn run, the world’s longest downhill race track, or, snow permitting, ski all 16km down from the top of the Schilthorn to the village of Lauterbrunnen. For non skiers there are more than 100km of winter hiking trails, 5okm of sledding trails and a couple of snowshoe trails. Hiking passes are available and allow non skiers to enjoy the mountain restaurants, the breathtaking views and the toboggan runs, as well as some of the most scenic walks in the alps. Other activities include ice skating, ice climbing, curling, heli skiing and the indulging in wellness.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This Grindelwald Chalet Apartment exceeded all of our expectations.



The basement includes two covered parking spaces and a laundry room.



The Apartment covers the whole of the first floor of the Chalet and has a huge terrace. The kitchen is nothing short of luxurious, the living area and master bedroom are huge. The description of the Chalet in the listing is accurate and the local Apartment Manager was incredibly friendly and helpful.



The location is above the main village (15 min walk or an hourly free bus) and looks over the valley straight onto the Eiger, which rises high above the eyeline, as, in Grindelwald, you are so close to the high mountains.



The Jungfrau region is simply stunning and we were lucky to have 5 cloudless days during our stay.



We tackled the Eigernordwand path from Eigergletcher to Alpiglen (a must for the keen walker), the Faulhorn from Schynige Platte (not for the fainthearted - this is a big walk), and had two relaxing days on the two lakes (either side of Interlaken).



You don't have travel far to start your day out, just set off from the Chalet on foot and head up to Bussalp, Bort or Waldspitz. However, to get to the highest views, take the Post Bus, Train or Cable Cars and start your walk from there.



The swimming pool in the village was great and nearly empty at the end of the day, with diving boards and a water slide. There's also an ice rink in the sports centre, where beginners can take their first steps, or (a must), go and watch the local team play ice hockey.



We could write so much more, there is so much to see and so many walks to explore.

THE PERFECT APPARTMENT BIELHOLZ GRINDELWALD

  • 5 of 5
Modern and good equiped appartement. Good location with a very nice view over Grindelwald and on the mountains. The skibus stops about 100 meters from the appartment and the center of the village can be reached walking in 10 minutes. The appartment has three large bedrooms, a large kitchen and a large living room.Two parking places are available. I recommend this appartment.

GRINDELWALD CONDOMINIUM

  • 1 of 5
We would like to share our experience with this rental, which we rented in August 2013. We were in telephone contact with the manager of this property who represented the owners. Arrival and entry to the property was uneventful, and the surroundings were breathtaking.

The unpleasant events began on our first evening when my wife and 2 children found some German cockroaches in the apartment. On closer inspection we found multiple others, as well as a variety of other insects behind and under the beds and throughout the condominium. As one can imagine, we were alarmed and dismayed particularly in view of the expense invested in this luxury apartment. Needless to say, my family spent a sleepless night in an infested environment that we are not accustomed to.

I contacted the manager who said he would inspect the premises first thing in the morning. After he arrived we showed him the evidence of what we found (pictures and dead insects, no cleaning under and behind the beds), and he assured us he would take this up with the owners regarding a refund and get back to us promptly. We left the apartment that morning to check into a local hotel. The manager did not call us back as he promised, and we never heard from him again.

On our return to Canada, our travel agent made multiple attempts to contact the property manager, without any return of his calls or emails. I hope that others will not fall prey to a similar experience.

Owner's Response: Based on the feed-back received from my property manager who is fully dedicated to support our guest (please see comments from all other guests), we are not aligned with Mr Peter K comments:
1) Our property manager came the first morning to understand the situation. The only evidence he received was a fuzzy picture of an insect. They said they smashed a lot of them but they already throw them away. Our Property manager stayed at our apartment and checked every corner without finding any insect infection sign.

2) We were upset about the information received by Mr Peter K because so far, we had not received any complaints. So, we proposed to help them to relocate at Grindelwald. Mr Peter K refused and decided to move away from Grindelwald and to go to another part of Switzerland. We were quite surprised about their decision not to spend time at Grindelwald knowing they are coming from Canada and that the area is fantastic. Our property manager stayed until the moment they decided to leave Grindelwald.

3) The agent of Mr Peter K never called me. After the departure of Mr Peter K, I send him a mail with the following proposal “we will investigate the issue and made closed monitoring about insect activities during the following nights. If the investigation concludes we have insect infection, we will refund Mr Peter K”. The travel agent from Mr Peter K. proposed to send me by mail the insect pictures taken within my apartment. So far, the only mail received from him has been a mail asking commercial gesture because the apartment was not used.

We are sorry about Mr Peter K experience because we want the best for our guest. We still not understand what happened because we cannot reconnect facts & data with Mr Peter K reaction and decision to leave Grindelwald area.

A LOVELY APARTMENT IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The property was presented in an excellent condition. It was very well equipped and comfortable. The rooms are large and all the furnishings were very comfortable. The inclusive wi-fi was very effective, even with five of us simultaneously using it. The manager of the apartment arranged to visit us and was very helpful and friendly.

The location is excellent with lovely views from the terrace. It is also conveniently located close to a bus stop for the hourly bus service into Grindelwald where you can then travel around the local area by bus, train or cable car.

There are two small supermarkets in Grindelwald (5 minutes by bus or 20 mins on foot) and there is also a small shop about 5 mins away up the hill.

We used the local bus into Grindelwald which was free with our inclusive visitor card. We also bought a 3-day Jungfraujoch VIP ticket. This is quite expensive but gives free travel for 3 days to most of the best sights/ mountain tops. Many of these cannot be accessed by any other means.

I would recommend this apartment for a quiet relaxing holiday or as a base to travel further afield.

VERY NICE IMPRESSIVE PROPERTY WITH SUPERB VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful apartment in Grindelwald, with superb views of the mountains. We had a car with us, & hence found the property easy to access, & in a very convenient location, & there were two covered parking spaces. The apartment itself is fantastic, covers the whole of the first floor of the chalet, is of really good size, with a huge patio, & with a pleasing & modern decor. Grindelwald is really stunning, with superb views of the Eiger North wall, & we were lucky to have wonderfully clear & sunny weather for all of the 7 days. We travelled with my mother, & a 2.5 year old kid, & we found the apartment to be very well appointed & convenient. The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, a really nice & spacious living room, & fair sized rooms & huge bathrooms. We really enjoyed our stay, & would certainly recommend this apartment to visitors to Grindelwald, looking for self catering apartments. The kitchen had all conveniences which would be required. No complaints. Perfect Holiday.

NEW YEAR IN GRINDELWALD

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was hard to find with the map we were provided with and the Sat Nav kept trying to send us into the train station. Once we asked for directions it was straight forward. The apartment is approx 1 mile from the centre and this caused us problems in the evening. The free bus service runs until 18:45 and taxis weren't available so this made going out in the evening for a meal impossible without a cold uphill walk home.
The transport for the ski lifts is very efficient but to get to the main ski area of Klein/Wengen it took 1 hour from getting on the bus to putting skis on.
The apartment itself was fantastic and a real home from home with TV channels in a number of languages including BBC and ITV. It is well appointed and has all the mod cons you could wish for. It has glorious views of the Eiger North Wall, surrounding mountains and Grindelwald village from the patio
There wasn't enough hot water for 7 people from the tank and we had to ring the building manager 'D' to tell us how to heat additional water which then took 3 hours to heat.
'D' came the first morning and was very helpful and answered all our questions. He also collected the local tourist tax which was an unexpected shock and not cheap. But then again nothing in Switzerland is cheap.
All in all i would recommend the apartment as it really is 1st class if you aren't too bothered about eating out and being first on the slopes but we did find it a bit remote from the main areas of village and ski for our liking.

Owner's Response: Based on the feed-back, we will make available a map for people coming by train and phone number of taxi company.
Regarding hot water, the tank can not follow the demand for 7 adults taking normal shower in a short timing. It works without issues for 4 adults and 3 childrens. there is as well an option connected to the tank to heat water all the time instead of heating the water only the night. When needed, we can activate it.

Grindelwald is a place where mountaineers and visitors from all over the world meet – and what at first may appear a touch unfamiliar, soon turns out to have something in common: after all the “Japan Direttissima” is one of the most famous routes up the north face of the Eiger. Grindelwald, also known as the Eiger village or glacier village, is a lively, varied place which is perfect for active holidays

In Winter, the three regions Grindelwald-First, Kleine Scheidegg-Männlichen and Mürren-Schilthorn together offer a total of 213 km of ski runs ranging from fast to leisurely, and from six to twelve kilometres in length. A total of more than 40 percent of the ski runs are equipped with snow-making machines. In the Jungfrau Region however, non-skiers also get their money’s worth: 100 kilometres of winter footpaths enable you to explore the mountains on foot. Furthermore, with its countless toboggan runs, the region is a real paradise for tobogganing. Amongst them is the longest toboggan run in the Alps.

In Summer, 500 kilometres of footpaths, 160 km of mountain bike trails, cable cars and railways, theme paths, adventure sports, climbing and mountaineering areas, waterfalls, alpine lakes - all accompanied by the breathtaking panoramic views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The 160 km of mountain bike trails in the Jungfrau Region do require a certain level of fitness - but thankfully there are always trains and cable cars which can take the strain out of many a climb. The view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is spectacular.
