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.

Warm regards

Vijay and Anita

Really is heaven!

  • 5 of 5
Really easy to get to from Zurich, beautiful views, very comfortable stay. 4 mates in their 20s looking for a good snowboarding holiday - it was perfect for relaxing after a day on the slopes, with a free bus to the bottom of the road and a quick (but steep) path down to town for some apres. Very comfortable with all the amenities to have a hearty meal. Do be prepared for a good workout walking back up the hill and stairs and make sure you check when the last bus is so you don't miss it - taxis are expensive!

close to heaven

  • 5 of 5
With our family - 2 adults and 4 children between 5 and 17 - we spent a week in Engelberg's most beautiful apartment - Alphaven C. Apart from the tastefully designed interior it has a phantastic panorama view down on Engelberg and its surrounding mountains. The way up to Alphaven is steep, but the reward is this amazing view and sunshine even in midwinter. John and Ursula made us feel at home; and our youngest daughter wanted to stay and live there right away. We'll come back!

Awesome location, spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of spending a week in Apartment B at the end of November. The apartment is exactly as pictured, and the spectacular view from the floor to ceiling windows cannot be captured in pictures! A wonderful location to relax and watch the world go by, or hike to the village for some exercise. A day trip to Mt. Titlus was fabulous and a visit to the Benedictine Monastery in Engelberg was so interesting. Would definitely recommend this rental and we will be going back!

Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place to stay. The views from the balcony and inside the apartment are breath taking. We were in apartment c and it had everything you would need for your stay. The owners are very helpful and really nice people. The town is lovely and not too busy. Mt Titlis is well worth a visit and its right there so not far to travel. I would definately rent here again if in Switzerland. I miss it already!
