Guest e-mails: Dear Ms O'Brien. You are the first one that I contact after our return to South Africa. That says a lot considering that I had more than 200 e-mails to respond to. It was absolutely marvellous! We enjoyed every minute, come sunshine, rain or snow. The changing light from the balcony is something that one can only experience and not describe. The apartment is magnificent and a true joy. Best regards, Yours sincerely, Frank and Rene Hodgson ....
Ursula and John,
Patrice and I are now very spoilt. Engelberg and your beautiful home was a perfect place to vacation for the week. The people in town, the restaurants (as you recommended, Axels was excellent as was the Waldegg), the skiing and wonderful scenery made for a great week. We look forward to coming back to visit again in the future. If you ever have a potential customer who needs a reference on your home and Engelberg... we'll get right back to them with rave reviews.
All our best wishes, Tom and Patrice Culligan...
Guest e-mails: Hi Ursula,
I cannot thank you enough for our great stay in Alphaven. It is beyond what we had imagined. Our first wedding anniversary went off just beautifully!!
It is just a beautiful place and my wife was so happy to be there. The only problem we had was that we never felt like leaving the place … the view and the luxury in your apartment was just amazing. We will remember it for the rest of our lives.
Again, thanks a lot for making this happen for us. We know where to stay when we are in Switzerland next time around.
Vijay and Anita
I am a retired Television Producer/Director and Ursula my wife is a psychotherapist. We spend half our time in Engelberg and half in the UK Midlands.
We designed and built Alphaven, definitely a labour of love and it's a joy sharing it with our guests ... it is quite unique and very special to us and everyone who has spent some time there.
The breathtaking views, the stunning views and the jaw dropping views ... arguably the best in Switzerland. Please read our reviews if you have any doubts ... quite amazing. We are used to them however we still stand in awe of the scenery and constantly changing weather every time we are here.
'The most Beautiful Place I've ever been’. Diane Sanderson Scottland. “A great find on the internet … it is everything it says on the site and more! We will never forget the view … what a way to wake each day. It’s going to be sad to leave.”
Stephen Madge – England.
In short, a perfect stay in a perfect place, we hope to return again!”

“This place was truly amazing. It opened up a lot of views for me. The week we stayed here was overwhelming and I’m honestly sad to leave, since being here has made me the happiest I’ve been in a long time. Thank you for everything!!
Love the Tylers – United States.
We stayed in the apartment in the first week of December in 2007... it is THE best place we have ever stayed. The views are breathtaking, and seemed to get more breathtaking by the day. Every morning that I woke up I would jump straight out of bed and open up the shutters to get a glimpse of the view.
We wanted for nothing, everything was there and more. The apartment was clean, spotless and looked after. The real fire was comforting and serene after a day out skiing and the cold. And the hot tub was amazing!
We also had lots and lots of snow, it didn't stop snowing for a good few days and was beautiful to watch the heavy snow through the panoramic windows whilst warming our toes in front of the fire.
I cannot wait to go back to this apartment... and we most definitely will!
The chalet owners are really friendly and helpful too.
We visited Engelberg, Gridelwald and Belmont-Lausanne during the recent Easter holiday, among which I found Engelberg the best. It is a hidden gem laying beneath Titltis, near Lucerne. A great variety of sports and sightseeing spots available at reasonable price.
John and Ursula's apartment locates at middle-high level of the village. 270 degree windows wall bring up magnificent snow mountain view from morning to dawn. I especially appreciate landlord's hospitality and good taste. All the question and email were answered promptly, the facilities in the room are all of good quality which are the brand and mode you would choose for your own house ( some other vocational rentals only provide basic or cheaper appliance, utensil to reduce cost). Moreover, the sauna room is a sweet treat after whole day travel.
To conclude, I would recommend both Alphaven and Angelberg for Swiss mountain explorer, no matter you are couples, a group of friend or family with kids.
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…
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in Apt A. Everything was perfect and the chalet and the view are even better than the pictures show. We travel often and regularly use VRBO for accommodations and this chalet is by far the nicest rental we have or probably will ever find. Everything in the unit is designed for luxury and comfort and the view from every room in the chalet is unbelievable. The owners are lovely to deal with and even arranged for a friend to make sure we had everything we needed while they were out of town. This rental is far better than any 5 star property..heaven on earth!
Megan & Bill
A lovely apartment, which fully met our expectations. Hot tub, sauna, wonderful views to the mountains and town below. Good ski resort for both beginners and advanced skiers, excellent services and facilities, and friendly people. Definitely want to come back!
My husband and I couldn't have imagined a better place to spend our honeymoon. At Alphaven Apt A we found better accommodations than any hotel could've provided. There's nothing like relaxing in a private hot tub with the striking view of mountains at sunset. The view from every room was also beyond belief and the apartment itself was very luxurious and modern with a fully equipped kitchen. The owners John & Ursula are very friendly and helpful as far as preparing you for your stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the cute little town of Engelberg. Everything about Alphaven surpassed our expectations and we couldn't have asked for more!!
