Great place for weekend trip

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our group to stay over a long weekend. We had four families and rented both apartments. Good location - in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the main street in Kandersteg, as well as the gondola station. Great views. Everything provided for a nice stay in winter. There was no microwave, and some of the rooms on the bottom floor stayed chilly, but we survived. I recommend it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Certainly, the strongest point of this beautiful chalet is its location, which can be described as the final destination in Switzerland. Just sit on the terrace and "see the world spinning round". Or hike to Oeschinensee, or ride there by bike (there are a plenty of, aside of the house). Or badminton with your kids, there are racquets. Actually, all of what we (a family of 6) were doing.

We lived in the upper comfy apartment with a big terrace (just like on the picture), and felt at home.

Rolf, the host, was available to answer questions and assistance.

Highly recommended!

Ideal Holiday Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Our group included 3 single people and one couple, so we wanted a chalet where we could all have our own space, the couple stayed in the upper floor and the singles each had a bedroom on the lower floor. this worked very well. The chalet was as described and matched the photos. It turned out to be ideally situated for us. We had come for summer walking and we were within easy reach of the railway station, cable cars and shops.

The chalets were both clean and had lots of equipment - spices, etc. and cooking accessories, which was really good because we flew from England so couldn't bring much with us.

We were able to have all our evening meals on the terrace which was lovely and we used the firepit.

We would definitely use the chalet again if we were coming to Kandersteg in the future.

We had a lovely meal at Reudihaus.We also recommend Waldhaus if visiting Gasterntal.

We walked along the Uschinengrat and over First to Eisligenalp - both were great walks to do.

Wir waren wiederholt in diesem Chalet. Die Ausstattung ist perfekt, vom Raclett bis zum Fonduegerät ist alles vorhanden. Es gibt 3 Doppelschlafzimmer und eine Coach im Wohnzimmer, dazu 2 Bäder, 2 Außensitzplätze mit Grill, optimale Parkmöglichkeit direkt am Haus. Alles ist sehr gut gepflegt und sauber. Hervorragender Ausgangspunkt für tolle Wanderungen und viele Freizeitaktivitäten. Unkomplizierter und großzügiger Vermieter. Wir kommen wieder.
