Verena and Rudi enjoy the interaction with people from near and far. Verena being an avid traveler herself loves to talk about her and the guests travel. Verena grew up in a small town in Switzerland and therefore enjoys gardening, flowers and a house full of plants.

Verena Kaeppele purchased this studio in 2002

We always had personal company from the USA and from Europe mainly. When we built our new home in 2001/2002, we decided to open our home to the tourists, as there always seems to be a shortage of reasonable accommodations in Anchorage during the summer months.

We are conveniently located approx. 5 miles from the Airport, the perfect location for late arrivals by air. We are also only minutes away from highway access south and north, as well as convenient to parks, businesses, shopping, trails, universities and hospitals. Our Suites are the ideal arrangement for the discriminating traveler or for the need to travel to Anchorage for medical reasons, temporary work, or whatever the need to travel to Anchorage might be.

POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WORK ETHIC

  • 1 of 5
I would give ZERO stars if I could.

The property is comfortable and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.

The owner is the problem. We booked months in advance to stay here at the beginning of our trip to Alaska for 2 nights and 1 night at the end of our trip. After our 1st night the owner stated she needed to speak with us about the reservations we had made for the last night of our trip. When we met with her she stated that she is bumping us to allow for another customer to stay there instead for a week, as opposed to us only staying for a night. Not only is this unprofessional but on top of it all, she was extremely rude about it. This is very poor customer service and business ethics. When we mentioned this to her she stated that it is commonly done and basically we just needed to get over it.

She gave us one of her friends contact info for a rental opportunity that was $40 more than what we had reserved with her.

The entire encounter made the 2nd night of our stay uncomfortable. We felt unwelcome and awkward.

I do NOT recommend Swiss Efficiency Accommodations.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were not happy with your stay at the Swiss Efficiency Accommodations. In the past we have accommodated guests staying up to 3 weeks (monthly in the winter) as well as repeats and referrals. As you can read from our other reviews, and you probably read the guest book in the Suite as well, we accommodated many, many happy guests over the years.
Needless to say, I am sorry that you feel the way you do. I tried very hard to find you similar accommodations. I hope that you found what you were looking for and had a wonderful time in our City and beautiful State of Alaska and will recommend travels to Alaska.

OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I from Texas together with the parents of my daughter's new husband from Germany spent nearly two weeks in Anchorage with Verena and Rudi celebrating a wedding. We rented the Garden Suite and the Mountain Veiw and found everything just as described. The suites were very clean, comfortable and private with everything that we needed to feel right at home. The neighborhood is quiet with many beautiful homes and is an excellent place for a stroll. Campbell Creek Trail with some of Anchorage's magnificent natural beauty is just a short distance down the road. Verena was very helpful with recommendations for things to do and she was always available upstairs if we needed anything. She even offered to use her connections in the hospitality industry to help others in our party find places. The rates were very reasonable and there is no comparison to what the same money would get you in a hotel. We give the Kapelle's the highest recommendation and will definitely stay with them when we return (if there is anything available - BOOK EARLY!).

HIGH PRAISES FOR THE SWISS EFFICIENCY B AND B

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently spent one month in Alaska. We made Anchorage our 'home base', and we were very fortunate to find the Swiss Efficiency B and B. Our hosts, Verena and Rudi exceeded our expectations. We were unique in that we were coming and going four different times, and each time, they were welcoming and helpful with any of our needs. The rooms were quiet, and clean and comfortably furnished. We were also given access to storage in their garage, and the laundry room saved the day after our adventures. The location is very user friendly: walking distance to a major grocery store, liquor store, restaurants, and the city bus route. We strongly recommend this B and B. You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Steve was a wonderful person, staying with us for 13 weeks at the Mt.View Suite. We are still in touch with him on Facebook. Great to follow his adventures. Would love to have him back, since our Studio Apartments are the ideal arrangements for short term employment stays in our city.

Verena and Rudi:

Thank you ever so much for hosting my daughter Rachel and I during our two week visit to family in Anchorage. Truly, your gorgeous accommodations are by far the BEST place we have ever stayed in Anchorage! Everything you provided was so thoughtful...from the spotlessly clean apartment, the beautiful flowers, generous supply of breakfast food, laundry facilities...and a view of your wonderful garden and the mountains. Thank you ever so much...we eagerly look forward to our next visit! Can't wait to come back! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!

Fondly,
Cheryl & Rachel VanDaalen
