Outstanding - a great selection for our vacation!
This was the perfect setting for our three day stay in the alps. Kathryn was a wonderful host and was very responsive to our needs. I didn't really know that her place would be so perfectly located - it was in quiet neighborhood of other similar chalets, but within walking distance from "downtown" Lauterbrunnen, and a stone's throw from the bus stop. The view from the porch is stunning! The apartment is spacious - we had 5 people, and the small kitchen and laundry machines were a bonus. It was clean, well equipped, and very convenient to the town, bus route, and area activities such as tram rides up to Schilthorn and the train ride to Wengen and Jungfraujoch.
We had a great few days here and would definitely come right back again!
Amazing location, heavenly surroundings and beautiful apartment
We stayed at the apartment for three days and explored the gorgeous surrounding areas. The chalet is conveniently located at a bus stop, so we had no trouble getting there with public transportation. The owner has taken great pains and has fully equipped the apartment with anything you can think of needed (there's even a washer & dryer!). I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone that needs a clean, peaceful and gorgeous place for a memorable holiday in Switzerland.
Spectacular Swiss vista
The chalet is lovely, and the setting spectacular. The vista is spectacular, out into the valley and waterfalls. This is a chalet in a complex of chalets. Our apartment looks very new and is very well furnished and equiped. The apartment itself is on the second floor, has 2 separate bedrooms, a large lounge and dining room, and laundry facilities (in bathroom) including both washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is large and very well equiped.
The chalet itself is adjacent to a couple of camp areas with small shops as well as a decent restaurant at one of the areas. However, it is only 15 minutes walk into town (or a bus which stops virtually outside the chalet) and numerous restaurants. The town is a great central base to explore the surrounding areas - mountains (including Jungfraujoch), hikes, lakes, and many small towns and villages.
Clean, comfortable, spacious with great view.
We were fortunate to have 5 nights at this wonderful apartment in Lauterbrunnen. Finding the house was easy following Kath's excellent directions. She also greeted us the morning following our arrival and was available during our stay. For us the apartment was perfectly located, just up the valley from town, but only a 15 minute walk from the lifts and tram. It has a really nice view from the balcony up the valley, and of all the waterfalls. The kitchen is well appointed, the stove and oven new and all soaps and towels included. We saved so much by cooking in that the apartment really paid for itself . Plus it was great to come back after some long walks, sit on the balcony pour a nice Swiss beer and watch the sunset on the Alps. It was also nice to have some TV in English to watch Wimbledon although there was an issue with the internet that I'm sure Kath will get taken care of. The beds were great and being Switzerland it was perfectly quiet at night. All in all the apartment was perfect for us and the price very reasonable. Whenever we get the chance to return to the magic Lauterbrunnen Valley Kath will be the first person I contact.
