We booked this place because we wanted to be in Lauterbrunnen and the view on the ad looked enticing. We were not disappointed by the view. It is stunning. We liked the location, easy walk to the train station and grocery. It was very clean, comfortable and we made great memories with our son and his friends.
Our family (2 adults and 2 boys 10 and 7) stayed at Heather's apartment this past August for 10 days. Heather was very helpful with the booking process, and we were amazed at the quality of the apartment when we first walked in. We make a point of staying in vacation rentals when we travel and this was by far the highest level one we visited.
The kitchen was stocked with everything we could imagine, bedrooms comfortable and cozy, the living room and dining room were extremely comfortable and the washer and drier were an perk we made sure to use!
Not to mention the beautiful view from the windows and great location, the kids enjoyed our stay so much they actually said they'll miss that apartment when we had to leave!
Thank you Heather for the wonderful experience!
We had a fantastic time and just loved our apartment! It was even better in person than the pictures and description on the web. Spotless, comfortable, convenient...we felt very much at home! We were a family of 4, 2 parents and 2 adult children (18 and 21) and the apartment was perfect - very spacious. We loved walking into town, jogging along the river, walking to the waterfalls, gorgeous views of the mountains and the valley...restaurants and cafe in town. It was all just amazing and we can't wait to go back. Heather was great to deal with and very helpful. Internet connection in the apartment was great too.
My friends and I (5 of us) had a great time in Lauterbrunnen. Although it was tiring visiting the many attractions in the area each day, it was nice to be able to return to a cozy apartment which was so comfortable that some of us felt reluctant to get out of in the morning. It was spacious, clean, well maintained, well equipped (utensils, crockery, washing machines/dryer, TV etc) and certainly one of the best apartments we have ever stayed at during our trips around the world.
While the apartment is located a little far from the Lauterbrunnen train station, it was not a problem for us as we had access to a car. Thanks to a kind friend who runs a restaurant up at Murren (Tham Snacks and Drinks Chinese Restaurant), we could drive around the beautiful valley for the few days we were there. No car? Not a problem. The bus stops just right at the driveway to the apartment and so you will unlikely miss it. Located amongst a few other apartments, with a tiny stream flowing alongside, it has a great view of the Staubbach Falls. To reach the Lauterbrunnen train station or the other locations within the valley like Trummelbach Falls or the Stechelberg Cable Car Station, you can drive, take the bus, or simply walk if you have the time and energy.
The owners, Heather and Tony met up with us on the first evening at the apartment and gave us a warm welcome. They were very friendly and helpful.
I have been to Lauterbrunnen a few times already but each time the valley and its surroundings fascinate me. I will likely return sometime in the future and I won't hesitate to stay at this apartment again.
The apartment was spacious, clean with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Its location is excellent with wonderful views and the owners are very friendly and helpful.
We would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
The valley is full of opportunities to go hiking, or just walking, long distance and short distance with much or little elevation. With the support of the several lifts even families with small children (2010: 5 and 7 years, and before that in 2006 and 2009) find their way up easily to the amazing viewpoints, even with a buggy! In summertime the Thuner lake is nice for a beachday at the waterfront, everything is reachable within short distances. Heathers appartment is luxury, at best place nearby the center of lauterbrunnen just 5 minutes to walk, but at the same time at a silent place at a backroad without trespassing traffic, so that the children can play on the street. Even more attracting to our two boys was the cozy Luterbach-river right in front of the house: Ice-cold water and little trouts to chase is an everyday new (and save) adventure for to young boys (and their daddy).
The equipment in the appartment is in perfect technical condition: the kitchen is fully eqipped with everything a family needs, even a fondue! We suggest to place some more cutlery, with this it would be no longer neccessary to run the dishwasher every day. But this is really the only thing to be improved. The TV-DVD-Radio-rack via satelite offers more channels than you can watch within a weeks holidy.
Heathers handling of the booking was fast, her support during our stay was personally and hearty. Due to our small mistake in calculating we had paied 33 EUR to much. After having returned to germay we discovered this mistake, we contacted Heather once more and within less than one week we got back this 33 EUR. This is really fair! So all in all: the valley is unique, the appartment is luxury, functional, and in a casual way it is inviting for a relaxing time. Heather and Tony do a professional and personal job, thanks, we'll be back soon.
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is the largest glacial 'U' shaped valley in the world. It is a little known fact that the author JRR Tolkien journeyed here in 1925 and apon seeing this magical valley, he never forgot it. It became the inspiration for 'Rivendell' home of the Elves in his book 'Lord of the Rings'. Indeed nothing has changed, the views are still breathtaking, the natural beauty unspoilt. There are miles of clearly marked walking and hiking trails on either side of the valley in summer and in winter the skiing options are many; Schilthorn with its famous James Bond revolving restaurant, and Wengen with its renowned Lauberhorn Race on the worldcup curcuit in January. For non skiers, there are also winter walking and snow shoe trails, and plenty of restaurants to relax in and enjoy real Swiss tradition. Lauterbrunnen itself houses some excellent restaurants and cafes, as well as sport shops for ski rental and booking offices.
Other Activities: Winter activities include; cross country skiing, sledding, ice skating and curling.In summer skydiving, white water rafting and canyoning. www.interlakenactivities.com
