It comprises a spacious main bedroom with double bed, a kitchen with a small dining area as well as toilet and a large outside dining area in the garden. In addition you can use the in-house swimming pool.
The apartment 'Sunneblueme' is very well connected to public transport and a perfect starting point from which to discover the city of Lucerne and Central Switzerland.
Whether by car or one of the bikes belonging to the apartment, or even walking, you will quickly reach Lucerne, one of the nearby lakes or the most beautiful mountain area.
The mount Pilatus is located practically in front of your doorstep and offers excellent opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing or simply enjoying nature. The hotel restaurant Pilatus Kulm offers a magnificent view of the mountains.
The tourist region Engelberg Titlis is only 25 minutes away. Here you can go skiing on a glacier at an altitude of 3240 m above sea level until long into summer.
The hiking area Klewenalp, between 1600 and 2000 m above sea level can be reached in 15 minutes and offers very diverse attractions for all age and fitness levels.
Enjoy a refreshing swim in the in-house pool after a long day full of adventures.
In the tranquil garden you can rest on one of the sun loungers and read a good book or drink a glass of wine at the garden table.
Nearby, at a distance of only about 5 minutes from the the apartment we have a brand new Migros-Fitnesspark with its diverse services in the areas of sports and wellness. There is also a large supermarket covering all every day needs.
If you wish, you can prepare something tasty on the handmade masonry BBQ/grill outside or treat yourself to a culinary delight in one of the nearby restaurants.
You can reach the centre of Lucerne in 4 minutes via the tube. With its advanced infrastructure, the city with its 77.500 inhabitants hosts numerous cultural activities, nightlife and entertainment options as well as countless restaurants.
Give it a try and let the wonderful region of central Switzerland put a spell on you.
We are a sociable couple in pension.
After we had for a long time our own dental clinic in Lucerne, we enjoy now to indulge our hobby's at home. We love hiking, making music and to accommodate guests from around the world. We know Switzerland very well and can give you the best advice in planning your vacation on spot.
Vreni + Karl Baier purchased this apartment in 1993
The Sonnenblume House is centrally located in the recreational area of Lucerne. We are very well served by public transportation. The house has a well kept garden and with the house's own bicycle you reach the Lake, the main attractions in Lucerne and the mountain railway within a very short time.
During our recent three week vacation in Switzerland, we were privileged for one week to enjoy the amenities of the "Studio Apartment Sonnenblume"! The apartment is exactly as represented by the photographs, was immaculately clean, boasted every comfort and amenity that two persons could hope for, and is owned by two of the most delightful, caring, and hospitable owners that anyone could hope to meet!
Charly, a retired dentist and still avid musician, was gracious enough to meet us at the local "Kriens Mattenhof" train station upon our arrival! ...Rolling our suitcases along the sidewalk for less than 4 minutes found us at the doorstep of our wonderfully impeccable
apartment! The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom/shower offered plenty of hot water, the kitchen was perfect to prepare light evening meals, WIFI worked very well,
the Espresso machine provided a wonderful beginning to our mornings, oversized easy chairs in the living area along with ample lighting permitted relaxing evening reading, and
in a most inviting manner, a table and chairs right outside our front door in the midst of beautiful tranquil gardens, provided a peaceful oasis to sip a glass of wine!
With the local train station 4 minutes by foot, and the local bus stop only two minutes away, this apartment served as the perfect "home base" from which to enjoy the myriad of delights that the Lucerne area has to offer! A large and wonderful COOP grocery store was accessible via the local bus (#16) to the "Pilatusmarkt" for day to day yearnings!
In only 4 minutes by S5 or S4 train from Kriens-Mattenhof( trains come every 15 minutes) you arrive at the Lucerne HauptBahnhof (Main train station). Once in Lucerne, we enjoyed over the course of our week, walking the streets of the Altstadt (Old Town),
crossing the Chapel Bridge, 4 different scenic boat rides on Lake Lucerne, an excursion to Mt Pilatus (Go only on a clear day), walking along the lake promenade to the Transport Museum, and on our one rainy day, a delightful tour of the Hergiswil Glassworks Factory!
The highlight of our trip, however, was a delightful evening spent with our hosts, Charly and his wonderful wife, Vreni! We were blessed to be able to share evening wine and appetizers, and even a marvelous "seafood soup" prepared by Vreni!!--We feel twice blessed after our memorable week in Lucerne--once for the perfect apartment, and secondly, for the wonderful new friends that we now have! WE WILL BE BACK!!
Charlie and Vreni were so wonderful to us! Charlie met us at the train station in Kriens when we arrived (which is right around the corner from the apartment) and he took us to the rental.
The rental was very clean and well furnished and everything was in perfect working order.
We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio to drink a coffee/tea while journaling our adventures in Kriens/Luzern while having short visits from the family's dog and cat (whom are very friendly and are great company for someone like me who misses her pets at home very much!).
Everything about this rental was terrific and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Switzerland!
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
Charlie and Vreni are wonderful hosts -- they will attend to your every need in a warm, friendly, and efficient fashion, including inviting you in for a drink and to meet family and friends. The apartment is exquisitely clean, comfortably furnished, quiet, and very well equipped, down to spare toothpaste and dental floss! The apartment is located in a suburb just 4km from the center of Lucerne. It is extraordinarily easily to get in and out of Lucerne by bicycle or train (I had no car). Kriens-Mattenhof station is a 2 minute walk away by pedestrian footpath. The trains take 4 minutes to get to Lucerne and run every 15 minutes. The local supermarket in Horw is well-stocked and easily accessible on foot or by bicycle. There is good hiking, biking, and walking right on your doorstep, and Charlie and Vreni generously provide bicycles. I would gladly come back for a future vacation.
We had a wonderful stay at Apartment Sonnenblum!
The apartment is very nice and well furnished! Someone has obviously put some time and effort into making this a comfortable and well decorated space!
The owners are great! Communication was excellent! They even offered to pick us up at the Train Station (the local stop is just minutes away). The city of Lucerne Main Station is a 5 minute ride by train or minutes by car.
Property is conveniently located to most everything!
Our hosts were WONDERFUL! They provided advice when requested - shared a drink with us - they even lit the fire in the bar-b-que so we could make dinner! When we needed something - they were quick and pleasant and happy to help!
We have no reservation about giving this property at 5 star review. If ever we pass this way again - we will not hesitate to come and stay here again!
Im August 2014 durften wir 2 Wochen in dem geschmackvoll eingerichteten Studioappartement von Vreni und Karl Baier verbringen. Es hat an nichts gefehlt, die Einrichtung war bis aufs kleinste Detail perfekt. Vreni und Karl waren grossartige Hosts, wir haben etliche Stunden lachend zusammen verbracht bei einem feinen Glas Wein. Immer wieder wurden wir gefragt ob wir noch einen Wunsch hätten und wenn wir Fragen hatten über die Region oder öffentlichen Verkehr, Baiers hatten immer eine Antwort und waren sehr hilfsbereit. Der Standort im schönen Luzern ist ideal und die Autobahn Nord-Süd nur einige Minuten entfernt. Wir möchten Vreni und Karl nochmals herzlich danken für die äusserst liebevolle Aufnahme und können die „Sonnenblume“ mit gutem Gewissen jedermann weiter empfehlen.
