Ursula is Swiss and I (John) am British. We are both semi retired but split our time between Switzerland and the UK ... the best of both worlds!!! We love Engelberg and Alphaven ... we never tire of the outstanding beauty we see every day from Alphaven and sharing the experience with our guests is the most rewarding experience of all.

ENGELBERG really is one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in the world

… and you’ll discover that ALPHAVEN enjoys the most beautiful setting in Engelberg

John O'Brien purchased this apartment in 2002

We built Alphaven in 2002 which is up on the sunny side of the mountain. ENGELBERG really is one of the most beautiful mountain resorts in the world … and you’ll discover that ALPHAVEN enjoys the most beautiful setting in Engelberg

The views from Alphaven are absolutely stunning. The 220 degree panorama just has to be seen to be believed ... it is utterly breathtaking. Guests invariably arrive with very very high expectations ... and they are always surpassed.

My husband and I just returned from a month in Europe which included 5 days in beautiful Alphaven! This without a doubt was the highlight of our trip!! The pictures and description just don't do it justice...it is so much more unbelievable! Our weather was absolutely perfect for hiking, sunny blue skies every day. There is a trail just outside the door which leads up to Ristis and Brunnihutte. We loved listening to the cowbells as we hiked! Every morning we would sit on our deck and have coffee and tea and enjoy the view, then every afternoon after returning from a hike we'd go back on the deck and enjoy the sunset! The town is a 15 minute walk down, and a 20 -25 minute walk up (depending on your speed), but so worth it! The apartment has everything you need! It was comfortable, clean as can be, with the most beautiful views imaginable! The only suggestion would be a pair of binoculars. We didn't have a car while we were there - it isn't necessary. We have traveled extensively in Canada and the US, and this is by FAR the most beautiful place we've ever stayed. That includes the apartment in the chalet as well as the scenery!

We have just got back from the most perfect weekend at Alphaven in Engelberg. The property was of the highest specification of any I have ever had the pleasure to stay in, with picture postcard views and every home comfort you can think of, right down to SKY TV...so no need to miss you favourite TV shows! Absolutely perfect! We were also there for the first snow fall of the season, which made the weekend even more special. Definitely heading back there soon! Thanks again John & Ursula!

30th Year Anniversary
Thomas & Doris Miami, Florida
Review Submitted: December 21, 2008 Date of Stay: December 2008
We would just like to say Alphaven was more than our minds could ever imagine. Pictures are beautiful but inadequate to express the real beauty, serene atmosphere we experienced. The panoramic view 24 hours a day of snow covered mountains was just spectacular. The moon @ night reflecting a blue tint on the snow covered mountain top while the sun in the afternoons caused a breathtaking glistening effect on the peaks of the snowy mountains. We have traveled extensively throughout the United States & Europe during our 30 year marriage. Alphaven was the best vacation we ever had, our REAL dream come true. Now we know where we will spend our 31st year anniversary December 2009. Transportation there was very convenient and the directions provided by John & Ursula were detailed, simple, & easy to follow. I strongly recommend Alphaven to anyone looking for a DREAM VACATION.

Review Submitted: January 16, 2009 Date of Stay: December 2008


This was the most beautiful place that we have stayed during a total of 10 weeks in Europe. Of course it was even better than the photos or 360 degree video. Many places you find on the internet look fantastic until you actually walk through the door and then you are disappointed. Alphaven was absolutely stunning. The views, the apartment, the owners. John and Ursula are very welcoming and homely. Every time I emailed them I would receive a reply very quickly (which is fantastic when you are on the other side of the world), but when we finally met them, they felt like old friends. We really cannot recommend John and Ursula and Alphaven enough. We can't wait to go back. Perfect village, perfect apartment, fantastic snow etc etc.....what more can I say? Go and see for yourself.

Alphaven – Heaven on earth
Zeppa & Censu Malta
Review Submitted: November 16, 2010 Date of Stay: November 2010

Whoever gets the opportunity to stay at this fabulous place will find himself in an apartment that is spotlessly clean, has all the comforts and amenities imaginable, a living room with a very cosy fireplace which simply evokes a sense of relaxation, a bathroom ideally suited for Cleopatra, a bedroom which implores one to a good nights’ sleep and oh I forgot the fully equipped kitchen.

The apartment is surrounded by snow capped mountains, with Titlis looming straight ahead. Just watching the scenery is pure relaxation by itself. The view of the Engelberg in the evening looks just like a picture postcard with its twinkling lights and imposing monastery. The town boasts numerous and different restaurants and the food is varied and excellent throughout. The service is impeccable as with everything else that is Swiss.

And when the weather is not that cooperative, don’t you worry, well just get into the Jacuzzi hot tub which I guarantee will remove all your aches, pains, worries and problems. There’s the sauna as well but we did not find time to use this, believe you me.

We both thought that we would just have a lie in every morning. This was not to be , though. We’d both wake up almost every day before sunrise, if not at dawn just to watch pure magic unfold before our very eyes.

After our stay in November 2010, we will surly not miss the opportunity to visit again. In fact my wife and I are already planning to do so as soon as time and work permits.

Titlis Rotair
TITLIS Cliff Walk

Engelberg is right in the centre of Switzerland and is ideal as a touring base either by Car or Train.

There is plenty to see and do without travelling too far ... Lucerne is a must see www.luzern.com it is one of the most beautiful old towns in Europe and is only 30 minutes by car from Engelberg and 50 minutes by train. Both the famous Mt. Pilatus www.pilatus.ch and Mt. Rigi www.rigi.ch are close by and well worth a visit if you have the time.

Going to the top of the Titlis 3,200m www.titlis.ch which you can see from your apartment more than compares in terms of Swiss Mountain experiences ... it is on your doorstep, much less costly and crowded than the Jungfraujoch, has a glacier with a glacier park and some of the most spectacular views in Switzerland.

If you are looking to take an unforgettable Lake Trip … Lake Lucerne and it's historic paddle steamers (some of which are over a 100 years old) take you on the most wonderful scenic cruises with some of the best Lake & Mountain views in the Alps. http://www.myswitzerland.com/en/home/summervacations/waterland-switzerland/lakes-in-switzerland/lake-vierwaldstaettersee.html

Bern the capital www.bern.ch & Solothurn www.solothurn-city.ch are also fantastic places to visit.
