Everything was great and kitchen was well equipped ( including expresso machine ) . Very clean and modern. Skylights really effective ! Lots of local information was provided . Communication with host was fine . Even though she was away , we were well looked after by her friend Ann Marie. Dinner on the deck was especially memorable. Co-op in town was convenient for groceries . Murren is a superb location as a base for exploring Jungfrau region especially if you enjoy peaceful , quiet evenings . Great hiking just out the door . I even did the tandem paragliding ! My wife and I both highly recommend Sue 's chalet and we would love to return !

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Enjoy breakfast on the balcony and dinner in the garden after a day exploring. Guests also enjoy free entry to the nearby pool, and spa. With the cable car just a few minutes a way, you have easy access to transport connections as well as hiking/ski trails, paragliding and a Via Ferrata with a 800 drop!

The cabin has a great view of the Alps from its balcony and plenty of natural light from two skylights in the kitchen/living area. Comfortable bed and nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. Sue welcomes you at the gondola station and is a great source of information for things to do in the area. I highly recommend it!

Hope to welcome you back one day, perhaps in winter for snow-shoeing or skiing. We love to see our guests relaxing here in peaceful, safe Murren. Come back soon!

                                                                  This place went beyond our expectations. Simply beautiful! Amazing views from the lovely apartment!

                                                                  Janice H.

                                                                  We absolutely loved this place, and hope to come back again. The owners were so helpful and friendly, and the apartment so comfortable and well furnished. The view from the living room window is spectacular, with a panorama of snow capped peaks. It is located near some of the best hiking in the region. An unforgettable experience!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so much for this wonderful review. This is what it is all about - helping travellers from around the world to enjoy this idyllic location.

                                                                  Stunning location

                                                                  LOREINE S.

                                                                  A beautiful immaculate apartment with two wonderful sky lights. The view from the balcony was absolutely stunning and we loved watching the moon rise over the alps. We took an early morning ride to the top of the "Shiltzhorn" which was very convenient. They offer a discount if you go early and avoid the crowds. It was easy to drop by and see the "live cam" before actually buying a ticket. It was difficult (for two 75 yr olds) to get our suitcases down the path (about 200 steps) and up the spiral staircase (100 steps) so I would arrange ahead of time to have some assistance. We did find that the railroad station would transfer our luggage for only 14 francs if we took it the night before. Since we were going on to Adelboden (several trains and a bus), this was a great help. We loved the town of Murren! There is a coop in town so we were able to cook all of our meals and enjoy them on the balcony. Kitchen was fully equipped and even included an Expresso machine that worked very well. Wish we were still there!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks for the great review. We're in a great location for watching sunrise, sunsets and waterfalls. Brunch in the revolving restaurant at the Schilthorn peak is a must - catch the cable car which is 3 minutes from the apartment. Just to clarify for future guests, if you let us know in advance we can usually assist with your luggage. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (42 stairs not 100 as mentioned). Access to the building is via 71 steps through lovely gardens. Skiers & snowboarders may use the lockable racks at the cable car station or ski to our garden if conditions allow.

                                                                  Lovely stay

                                                                  iztok k.

                                                                  Way nicer than staying in a hotel.

                                                                  This idyllic, car-free mountain village has a charm you cannot help falling in love with. The Jungfrau range seems almost close enough to touch but still a long way off, as Mürren sits on a sunny terrace above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. A winter sports resort, with Sports Centre offering guests free access to large swimming pool with jacuzzi and ice rink (ice rink in winter season only), and a beautiful Wellness Centre. Perfect during the rest of the year too for hiking, spectacular waterfalls, exploring this stunning region by train, mountain biking and other adventure sports, or simply enjoy being at one with nature. Don't miss a trip to the top of the Schilthorn, including a visit to the 007 James Bond exhibition, the revolving restaurant and newly opened viewing platform. Home to the Inferno Triathlon (August) and the longest downhill ski race (January). Convenient base for the Lauberhorn Ski Races. Various other amateur snowboarding and ski events throughout the season. Great sledging! Take a day trip to Wengen or up to the top of the Jungfrau (ice palace) in any season - the highest point in the Alps reachable by train. During the summer, visit Trummelbach Falls, valley museum or hike to a local dairy for lunch. Featured on the BBC as the launch place for base-jumpers and popular with paragliders (book your tandem trip in the village). Other summer adventure sports include the Via Ferrata, hanging 800m above the valley floor and ending with the Nepalese bridge (not for the faint-hearted). This is a stunning location for both relaxation and activities.
