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.

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.
Three generations of my family stayed in this apartment and loved every minute of it. The property was clean and well maintained and John, the owner, was fantastic with communication. The views from this apartment were magnificent. My kids loved the loft bedroom and we all loved eating breakfast while taking in God's beauty on the deck. While staying here, we hiked, went to the top of Mount Titlis, ate a meal at the Alpenclub, and also toured Lucerne. I would highly recommend staying in this apartment.
My husband and I stayed at Alphaven (Apt A) in August 2013 and were very, very happy with the apartment, the amenities and the owners. We have rented homes across Switzerland, and this was probably our all-time favorite one!
As other guests have noted, the views from Alphaven are not to be believed. We enjoyed waking up each morning to see the sunrise over the mountains and return at night to see the moon come out at night after a full day of hiking. The apartment was very clean, spacious and peaceful. We like to cook and enjoyed having a well stocked kitchen. Engelberg is a great location for hiking and other outdoor activities. The only drawback was the walk up to the house from the train. We were not traveling with a car and did not realize how steep the walk was, which made it somewhat difficult for lugging groceries, luggage, etc. If you are traveling with a car, this will not be a problem. (We could have hired a taxi but did not bother).
I stayed here with my new wife on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. The apartment was everything we could have hoped for. Engelberg itself is a fantastic little place and the views from the apartment were stunning. The walking trails right outside are brilliantly signposted and so easy to follow and not get lost! We'd recommend this to all.
Greeted by stunning views every morning is what our family enjoy in Alphaven Apartment we stayed during April 12-18. Timing was too short for us to enjoy the lovely place with impeccable views and facilities. Kitchen was amazingly well-equipped and it is perfect for our family. Our 2 years old daughter woke us up every morning to see the new shape of snow view from the balcony. We glad to travel half of the world (from Thailand) to this place and would definitely plan to go back there again. John has been a great host guiding us through this charming town and equipped us with good information to enjoy our vacation. Strongly recommend to those who seek to enjoy a piece of paradise for a break, but would be even better to have a car to travel from town to the Alphaven as walking up when it is rain is a bit of a challenge, but it was a good fun.

This vacation rental was the best place I've ever stayed. The view from the patio was like nothing I've ever seen - heaven! I had everything I needed and more in the apartment. John and Ursula were so nice and helpful too. It was just a short walk into town where there are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. The apartment is walking distance to hiking trails as well. This was an amazing town filled with beauty and was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. The apartment was clean and comfortable and could not have been a better place to stay. It was a fantastic experience.
We spent five nights in this lovely apartment with the most amazing and relaxing views you could wish for. Quiet and peaceful set above a busy holiday resort that offers something for everyone in a very clean and safe environment. The apartment is well equipped and full of information to help you make the most of your stay. John and Ursula are great hosts and very helpful. If you love the mountains, fresh air and great scenary this is the perfect place for your holiday, it really does have the most stunning of views.
