Our comfortable apartment was completed in January 2008. It is south facing with amazing views of the magnificent Breithorn to the South and the stunning Staubbach waterfall to the West with spring lambs skipping in the fields below. The apartment is on the first floor of the building and incorporates 2 good sized bedrooms 1 twin and 1 double. a spacious bathroom with bath and shower. Light and modern kitchen. With granite worktops. Underfloor heating. We live locally and are able to provide personal attention for our guests. The adjoining apartment accommodates 6 persons and if available the 2 properties can be let together. Heated ski and boot storage is also a bonus as a heated area for prams. Nearby bus connections to the Schilthorn Cableway and main stations, small local shops which are open also on Sundays. A fantastic central location for summer and winter walking and a variety of sports.
Central location for the Jungfrau ski area: Muerren hosts steep, in places difficult terrain and is reached by the Schilthorn Cableway or Muerren Grutschalp cable-car.Wengen, and Kleine Scheidegg have gentler pistes with the exception of the Lauberhorn racing Piste. Grindelwald is also accessible from Lauterbrunnen, or over Scheidegg when conditions are good one can ski down to Grund at the bottom of the Mannlichen Cableway. There is a regular bus service 50m away from the apartment which services all stations. We live a mere 2 minutes walk from the apartment and are on hand in case of emergency.
We stayed at the apartment for three days and explored the gorgeous surrounding areas. The chalet is conveniently located at a bus stop, so we had no trouble getting there with public transportation. The owner has taken great pains and has fully equipped the apartment with anything you can think of needed (there's even a washer & dryer!). I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone that needs a clean, peaceful and gorgeous place for a memorable holiday in Switzerland.
The chalet is lovely, and the setting spectacular. The vista is spectacular, out into the valley and waterfalls. This is a chalet in a complex of chalets. Our apartment looks very new and is very well furnished and equiped. The apartment itself is on the second floor, has 2 separate bedrooms, a large lounge and dining room, and laundry facilities (in bathroom) including both washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is large and very well equiped.
The chalet itself is adjacent to a couple of camp areas with small shops as well as a decent restaurant at one of the areas. However, it is only 15 minutes walk into town (or a bus which stops virtually outside the chalet) and numerous restaurants. The town is a great central base to explore the surrounding areas - mountains (including Jungfraujoch), hikes, lakes, and many small towns and villages.
We were fortunate to have 5 nights at this wonderful apartment in Lauterbrunnen. Finding the house was easy following Kath's excellent directions. She also greeted us the morning following our arrival and was available during our stay. For us the apartment was perfectly located, just up the valley from town, but only a 15 minute walk from the lifts and tram. It has a really nice view from the balcony up the valley, and of all the waterfalls. The kitchen is well appointed, the stove and oven new and all soaps and towels included. We saved so much by cooking in that the apartment really paid for itself . Plus it was great to come back after some long walks, sit on the balcony pour a nice Swiss beer and watch the sunset on the Alps. It was also nice to have some TV in English to watch Wimbledon although there was an issue with the internet that I'm sure Kath will get taken care of. The beds were great and being Switzerland it was perfectly quiet at night. All in all the apartment was perfect for us and the price very reasonable. Whenever we get the chance to return to the magic Lauterbrunnen Valley Kath will be the first person I contact.
As the alpine ski season ends for us we are already planning a return trip to the spectacular Lauterbrunnen valley for our 5th Christmas holiday in this well appointed apartment.
We have now spent 9 weeks skiing in this region staying in this beautifully maintained and clean apartment. We have not been disappointed or bored with the skiing, the area is well easily accessed with the precisely timed trains and lifts. A very short walk from the apartment is the bus stop taking you to the lift system up to Wengen in one direction or Murren in the other. Each visit we have found something new, this year we were lucky enough to see the swiss ski team training on the famous Lauberhorn, and even shared a chairlift back up the mountain with them. We can highly recommend the early morning cable car for breakfast in the Shilthorn restaurant, followed by the exhilarating black run down into Murren, and the cosy Pension Gimmelwald.
The apartment itself is spacious and easily accommodates us and our 2 growing boys. There is a boiler room on the ground floor for ski and boot storage, with room to service skis. The kitchen and eating area is well equipped enough to be able to produce food for a hungry family after a hard days skiing, and prepare a Christmas meal! The kitchen and living area is open plan and has plenty of room to relax but still be sociable. The balcony has stunning views up this dramatic valley, each year we have seen different amounts of water flowing or avalanching down the vertical cliffs that make this valley so spectacular.
Over the years Katherine has managed to accommodate all our needs making this a truly magical place for a holiday that we can highly recommend.
We spent a wonderful week in Lauterbrunnen in June, and can’t wait to return at Christmas. Lauterbrunnen is a perfect location for beautiful walks from the nearby villages Murren and Wengen (great wildflowers in June). The pleasant walk (part of it is uphill) from the apartment to the train station takes 15-20 min, alternatively there is a regular post bus stop near the house going to both the train and cable car stations. For essentials, there is a convenient small shop in the Jungfrau campsite which is a 5 minute walk away (the restaurant there also serves a good Rosti at a reasonable price!) There is a very good (air conditioned!), well-stocked Co-op supermarket in the main village opposite the station.
The apartment is exactly as described, it is spacious, nicely decorated, clean and well equipped. The balcony has a fantastic view down the valley of the mountains and waterfalls. We highly recommend the apartment and are looking forward to coming back.
For the third year in a row, we've spend our summer holiday in the Jungfrau region. Since 2 years we even come back in winter for skiing. In this beautiful and amazing area lies a hidden gem: Lauterbrunnen.
Kath, as you know, Lauterbrunnen has stolen our heart.
No doubt there's no better place to enjoy the breathtaking view of Lauterbrunnen Valley than in your apartment. We had an absolutely wonderful and splendid time.
The apartment itself is a quiet and serene place to relax in luxury. We loved the space and freedom in the spotless and charming apartment. It's a place were you want to stay forever.
Everything you need is provided by Kath. From towels to books, films and even toys for the children. From dishwasher to washing machine and trumble dryer. Even sunclasses for the kids were present. The bath and beds are very comfortable after a day of walking in the mountains. All the furniture, kitchen and kitchenfacilities, bathroom, ... are of the highest quality.
In short, we highly recommend this spacious apartment to all our friends and family, as we are sure, there isn't a better place to spend your holiday in the mountains.
Kath, many thanks for all the good caring and we hope we can come back for many years.
