                Very pleasant stay

                4 of 5
                Very convenient location. Place as described & pictured - very clean, well maintained & spacious. Would definitely recommend. Garage parking a bit small, could be a challenge if you have a bigger car. Bus stop very near & conveniently located( Buses run every 10 mts during peak). No restaurant or grocery store close-by.

                Great host and views make this grand studio a pleasant stay

                5 of 5
                The facilities are spacious. It’s one grand studio and could be a two-bed place if it had walls. Inside is comfortable. Place was exceptoinally clean and we tried to leave it that way. Wife Gretchen did not know how to use convection oven, would have preferred a microwave. We loved sitting on the patio and looking at the ever changing view of Mt. Pilatus, often surrounded by a cloud wreath. As older Americans (I am 82), we found the walk up Dormenstrasse was a bit too much for us. On two bus trips to Lucerne we chose to return after dark by taxi. Cost was only CHF 30 and was well worth it. And we didn’t have to trudge up the hill in the dark. Because of the somewhat isolated location and my aging legs, we only took one trip a day away from the rental. We appreciated being picked up at the train station, and Bea’s son handled our suitcases in getting them to our room. After a nap one day, I sat outside with  cigar and glass of Vino Nobile de Montepulciano—my ten franc bargain on shopping spree to the local Pilatus Markt. It is quite a big shopping center. I was disappointed that I couldn’t walk more, had little endurance. Then the sun broke through, brightening the cold first part of my day. Hillside condos across the way reflected good cheer. A fluttering Swiss flag reminded me I was abroad, on vacation. While I can’t hike all day, I can sit here and enjoy the scenery. Across the way is Pilatus, that famous local peak. Tourists ride a cog train to the top for views of landscape and lakes. It must be a beautiful sight today. Gretchen joined me for our tranquil scene. I now look forward to tomorrow, another fine day in the Lucerne suburb of Horw. With some 13,000 population, Horw offers no tourist sights, no travel demands. This is simply a Swiss burg with everyone going about their daily routines. On our walks I say “Grüezi” to passersby and they return the Swiss greeting. Smiles, too, are exchanged. What’s not to like? Of course the big attraction is nearby Lucerne which has rents double and triple what we paid in Horw. Thinking of why I am elated to be here, I remember the severe California water shortage. I can flush a Swiss toilet without feeling guilty. And everything is so clean. The Swiss seem to be obsessed with keeping a neat and tidy environment. Bea’s rental in Horw (pronounced something like Orb) is highly recommended for the budget conscious. And having Bee living right next door was to our advantage. She was communicative and helpful.

                Perfect base for the Lucerne area

                5 of 5
                When my husband and I decided to spend 5 days around the Lucerne area, we debated whether to stay in a hotel in Lucerne or to look for an apartment or house around the lake. This little apartment was the best of both worlds. With the train only a few minutes walk, and Lucerne only 4 minutes by train, we could be in the city in a short time. But we also had a kitchen to prepare breakfast and pack lunches if we wanted, and we got to leave the noise and bustle of the city at night for a quiet residential area. There is an Aldi's for groceries just a few minutes walk and we found a really good restaurant within walking distance as well. Kuonimatt Steakhouse was a hit for both the steak and pizza, as well as the ambiance. Pilatus is easy to get to from here. We also took a couple of cruises on the lake. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the pictures. It was spotless and comfortable. Every time we needed something, it was there. I was impressed with how thoroughly the place was stocked. A lot of time has gone into making it comfortable for guests. Vreni and Charly are incredibly nice people. He met us at the train station and showed us around the apartment. If he was on his patio when we returned, he would always ask if everything was ok. We had drinks with them one night, which was really nice. It was fun to have a local to ask questions of. But you can also have as much privacy as you like. We made the right decision in staying in this apartment in Kreins.
