Guest e-mails: Dear Ms O'Brien. You are the first one that I contact after our return to South Africa. That says a lot considering that I had more than 200 e-mails to respond to. It was absolutely marvellous! We enjoyed every minute, come sunshine, rain or snow. The changing light from the balcony is something that one can only experience and not describe. The apartment is magnificent and a true joy. Best regards, Yours sincerely, Frank and Rene Hodgson ....

Ursula and John,

Patrice and I are now very spoilt. Engelberg and your beautiful home was a perfect place to vacation for the week. The people in town, the restaurants (as you recommended, Axels was excellent as was the Waldegg), the skiing and wonderful scenery made for a great week. We look forward to coming back to visit again in the future. If you ever have a potential customer who needs a reference on your home and Engelberg... we'll get right back to them with rave reviews.

All our best wishes, Tom and Patrice Culligan...

Guest e-mails: Hi Ursula,

I cannot thank you enough for our great stay in Alphaven. It is beyond what we had imagined. Our first wedding anniversary went off just beautifully!!

It is just a beautiful place and my wife was so happy to be there. The only problem we had was that we never felt like leaving the place … the view and the luxury in your apartment was just amazing. We will remember it for the rest of our lives.

Again, thanks a lot for making this happen for us. We know where to stay when we are in Switzerland next time around.

Warm regards

Vijay and Anita

Modern elegance with world-class views!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at Alphaven (Apt A) in August 2013 and were very, very happy with the apartment, the amenities and the owners. We have rented homes across Switzerland, and this was probably our all-time favorite one!
As other guests have noted, the views from Alphaven are not to be believed. We enjoyed waking up each morning to see the sunrise over the mountains and return at night to see the moon come out at night after a full day of hiking. The apartment was very clean, spacious and peaceful. We like to cook and enjoyed having a well stocked kitchen. Engelberg is a great location for hiking and other outdoor activities. The only drawback was the walk up to the house from the train. We were not traveling with a car and did not realize how steep the walk was, which made it somewhat difficult for lugging groceries, luggage, etc. If you are traveling with a car, this will not be a problem. (We could have hired a taxi but did not bother).

Fantastic apartments in an amazing location!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here with my new wife on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. The apartment was everything we could have hoped for. Engelberg itself is a fantastic little place and the views from the apartment were stunning. The walking trails right outside are brilliantly signposted and so easy to follow and not get lost! We'd recommend this to all.

Stunning views with fully equipped apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Greeted by stunning views every morning is what our family enjoy in Alphaven Apartment we stayed during April 12-18. Timing was too short for us to enjoy the lovely place with impeccable views and facilities. Kitchen was amazingly well-equipped and it is perfect for our family. Our 2 years old daughter woke us up every morning to see the new shape of snow view from the balcony. We glad to travel half of the world (from Thailand) to this place and would definitely plan to go back there again. John has been a great host guiding us through this charming town and equipped us with good information to enjoy our vacation. Strongly recommend to those who seek to enjoy a piece of paradise for a break, but would be even better to have a car to travel from town to the Alphaven as walking up when it is rain is a bit of a challenge, but it was a good fun.

Santiphong, Pakawan, and our daughter Sasichaya

Breathtaking Views and Amazing Experience

  • 5 out of 5
This vacation rental was the best place I've ever stayed. The view from the patio was like nothing I've ever seen - heaven! I had everything I needed and more in the apartment. John and Ursula were so nice and helpful too. It was just a short walk into town where there are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. The apartment is walking distance to hiking trails as well. This was an amazing town filled with beauty and was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. The apartment was clean and comfortable and could not have been a better place to stay. It was a fantastic experience.

We spent five nights in this lovely apartment with the most amazing and relaxing views you could wish for. Quiet and peaceful set above a busy holiday resort that offers something for everyone in a very clean and safe environment.

If you love the mountains, fresh air and great scenary this is the perfect place for your holiday, it really does have the most stunning of views.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just returned from a month in Europe which included staying 5 days in Engelberg at Alphaven. It was absolutely fantastic in EVERY way. Staying here was the highlight of our trip. It was a dream come true! The pictures on the website just don't do it justice. It is SO much better! The location is superb! There was a hiking trail right outside our door which led up to Ristis and Brunni. The hiking was beautiful with so many options! 320km of hiking trails all around! The cowbells were tinkling, and you could hear them all around! The restaurants on the mountain tops were a great place to lunch halfway through our hikes!

The apartment has everything you could possibly need. It was spotless, well maintained, and just perfect! Every morning we would have our tea and coffee on the deck enjoying the beautiful panoramic views! Every afternoon after hiking we would go back on the deck to watch the paragliders and then the sunset! We had a bonus with a full moon, which shone through the skylight and the windows, reflecting off the snow on top of the mountains, which made for a beautiful sight!

I would highly recommend Alphaven! Even if you don't hike, the scenery is breathtaking, the town is lovely.

We have travelled extensively in Canada and the US, and this really is without a doubt the best place we've ever stayed!!


The walk down to town only took 15 minutes, where there are shops for groceries, restaurants and a great tourist info, which gives you information on the cable cars and hiking in the area. Mount Titlis is a must see. The first rotating cable car in the world!
