Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The accommodation was larger than we expected and looked clean. However the floor clearly hadn't been mopped in ages as our feet we black after walking barefoot. There was a lack of utensils, cutlery and plates in the kitchen, so although there was a dishwasher we had to wash up otherwise there wasn't enough for the next meal. The towels were very thin and small, not much bigger than a hand towel.
The owner of the property was very brusque and standoffish and not at all friendly as other reviews had suggested. This was not due to a language barrier as I speak Swiss-German. Her husband was friendly. She was very aggressive on our first morning accusing us of breaking the blinds when it was the wind that had blown them in. the blinds were not broken. Because of her manner she made us feel very uncomfortable and every time she came round we wondered what we had done wrong.
The area looks quiet and idyllic however the local youths use the road as a race track for the motorbikes starting at 10pm and at weekends this would continue until 2am!
With regards to being allowed to use the washing machine I was only offered a 20 minute cycle which was a waste of time and that was reluctantly offered to me.
The owner was very surprised when she came to inspect the property that we hadn't broken anything.
I will not be returning and I would not recommend this property because of the manner of the owner and the noise at night.
Owner's Response: Da die Bewerterin ihre Negativbewertung in Englisch abgegeben hat, aber perfekt Deutsch und Schweizerdeutsch spricht, sei es uns erlaubt in Deutsch zu antworten. Bis auf die tatsächlich vorgekommenen Nachtruhestörungen am Wochenende durch einheimische Jugendliche (es wurden bereits von der Polizei und dem Gemeindevorstand Sofortmassnahmen eingeleitet bzw. vorgenommen) kommen die Vorwürfe und Beschuldigungen der Mieterin doch sehr überraschend. Weder bei der halbstündigen Wohnungsübergabe noch während der 14tägigen Mietdauer und anschliessenden Wohnungsabnahme wurden von den Gästen irgendwelche Mängel beanstandet, über Unfreundlichkeit geklagt oder Reklamationen angebracht. Im Gegenteil: Bei mehrmaliger Nachfrage während des Aufenthaltes wurde stets freundlich und nachhaltig beteuert, alles sei in bester Ordnung, man geniesse die Ferien und es fehle an nichts. Bei unseren Smalltalks war sie stets aufgeschlossen und unterhaltsam und nichts deutete darauf hin, das etwas nicht in Ordnung wäre. Auf die einzelnen Bezichtigungen und Anschuldigungen möchten wir nicht eingehen, da sie schlichtweg jeglicher Wahrheit entbehren.
Rätselhaft wird es für uns bleiben, was der wahre Grund dieser verbittert verfassten Bewertung ist und die Verfasserin dazu bewogen hat, so zu reagieren.

Jewel in a fine setting

Nothing is too much trouble for the kindly management of this spotlessly clean and spacious holiday home. Excursions are unnecessary! Sitting at its large picture windows you can enjoy the thousand faces of Lake Lucerne. On the doorstep are lakeside, woodland and hill walks galore.
If you wish to go further afield the lake-steamer is five minutes away. The train, buses and shops are no more than twelve minutes even at our aged speed.
Towering Mount Pilatus, high and pictueresque Rigi and imposing Stanserhorn are an easy day out. We spent a lovely short day taking the 10.29 am boat to Lucerne followed by a gentle stroll over the celebrated bridges and an hour-long coffee by the water - alas a mere impossible dream as I sit here back at my desk besieged by emails.
Resting in welcome comfort on the spot, travelling nearby or venturing further afield: the choice was ours. We had the clé des champs but were tempted to not use it and simply enjoy life at this lovely Ferienwohnung to which we surely hope to return.
