Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I'm trying to think of what I could add to the other raves already here. This place was GREAT! Way more beautiful than the photos make it look! A one-minute walk from the house is the start of walking trails with the most gorgeous vistas of the mountains and lake. Just spectacular. Easy drive to Luzern. The apartment felt spacious. Yes, the kitchen is small, but we were happily able to cook all our meals here. (Note: no microwave, need to buy your own olive oil.) Beatrice was consistently gracious and helpful, a very clear communicator. We had a car so the walk up the hill was not a problem. Beds very comfortable. Lots of small thoughtful touches, such as umbrella and walking poles for our use. I highly recommend staying here. The only thing to note is that Homeaways extra charges make the room a lot more expensive than it sounds -- but that will be true with any place you rent through the site.

Nice clean modern Apartment in quite and welcoming Neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The climb up the street was a bit tuff for elderly people. Unfortunately there is no UBER available.

We experienced a nice and pleasant stay.

Superb space with beautiful mountain view

  • 5 of 5

The rental apartment was very spacious and clean. It is situated a little uphill on a quiet winding road, and we had a guaranteed parking space inside the modern garage. We (3 persons) had everything we needed to support our 4-day stay in the Luzern area. There were plenty of maps, books, and a TV. The kitchen was a bit small and had a 2-burner stove, but we found all the dishes and cookware that we needed, and the owner generously provided coffee for our use, and plenty of basic seasonings in the cabinets. The bathroom was a decent size and very modern, although the exhaust fan was inefficient and took some time to vent the moisture. The best feature of the apartment was the beautiful view of the mountain Pilatus that was always visible, and it was a treat to look at the lighting changes at different times of the day.

Birthday Celebration

  • 4 of 5

This property was a nice fit for my monumental birthday celebration. Fit was definitely needed as the hill on which this lovely apt sits up on is quite challenging and impressive. The accomadations were clean, comfortable and situated in the lovely, friendly town of Horw. The owner is the perfect hostess who makes sure your stay is what you want. I would highly recommend this property but be aware that the taxi service in Horw is non existence and things close early. The trains and buses were timely and great modes of transportation for getting around Switzerland. The people and shops are very helpful even if you do not know the language. Thanks to B. Pistor for everything

Wonderful Lucerne Alternative

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a wonderful alternative to staying in the very expensive downtown Lucerne area and the owner could not have been nicer to us. The apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortably fit the 4 of us. It has all the necessities for cooking your own food and dining in (which is a much better alternative than paying high Swiss restaurant prices). It is conveniently located within a 10 minute drive to Lucerne. Horw itself has some nice bakeries, restaurants and supermarkets. Despite being located up a significant hill for us flatlanders, we walked to downtown Horw for dinner one night and then walked to a small nature preserve on the banks of Lake Lucerne, then back up the hill. The views from the location are fantastic. It is kid friendly, although with a 2 year old, we were concerned about some dropoffs from the path leading up to the apartment. We would very much like to stay here again some day and appreciate Bea's hospitality.

Unbelievable Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this property during out vacation to Switzerland, and we absolutely loved it! It lives up to the listing and MUCH MUCH MORE! Beatrice helped us every step of the way, including picking-up/dropping-off at the train station and printing off a corrected travel document for us.

The apartment is very close to the lake, and you are close to both the bus and train stations, giving you easy access to hiking!

If given the chance again, we will certainly be back!
