Long-time Geneva resident of a multicultural and multilingual background (US, Swiss and Italian) happy to share my wonderful hometown with interested visitors. I know the ropes of the city and am happy to point you to the local highlights!

New, renovated, simple and efficient location for maximum freedom without the constraints of expensive hotel accommodations!

Lovely apartment and great views from the balcony

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was superb and was everything we were looking for and needed. It was extremely well furnished and equipped with everything you require for a self catering stay in any town. It was situated in a lovely suburb and very close to the bus stop and only a 5 minute bus ride to the centre of Geneva. The owner was extremely helpful and provided lots of information relating to the local area and amenities. We would definitely stay here if returning to Geneva in the future.

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
Hubby & I enjoyed a delightful stay in this bright & cozy 'nest', ideally located in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet just 10 minutes walk to the Old City...5 more minutes to the lake! The owner was gracious & welcoming, the amenities perfect! 5 stars all around!

Geneva Angel!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed in Laura's apartment for two months this summer while I worked in Geneva. I'm a law student from the U.S., and I had an internship at the University of Geneva, so I wanted to find a comfortable space in which I could feel at home. Laura's apartment is so ideal! It has every sort of amenity that you could think of and the apartment is completely set up for an extended or short term stay.

Since I was staying in Geneva for so long, Laura picked me up at the bus station, gave me a tour of Geneva, and helped me find all the local grocery stores, post offices, etc., that I would use on a regular basis during my stay. She was so hospitable and she made herself available whenever I needed her. I had a bit of bad luck during my travels to Geneva, and Laura went out of her way to help me sort everything out upon my arrival. She had such a warm spirit and smiling face any time I reached out to her for directions, recommendations, or even just to say hello.

I would absolutely recommend this wonderful apartment and Laura as a host to anyone traveling through Geneva. She even got used to me jokingly calling her my "Geneva Angel," though it was also quite true. Not only would I stay at this apartment if I found myself in Geneva again, but I know that I'll keep in touch with Laura as a friend in the future as well. I've stayed in several apartments through VRBO and other apartment hosting sites, but I can honestly say Laura is the best host that I have ever had.

Magnificent stay

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Laura's apartment was just great. She was extremely helpful and available at all times! The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures if not better! It was spotless in our arrival, and Laura even left all the basics (milk, butter, oil, salt, spaghettis, etc) in the fridge for us not to have to run to the supermarket after arriving. We would highly recommend staying here since the location is also great, the street is super quiet and there is a great view. We'll definitely return next time we are in Geneva!

Comfort and a veiw of the Salève

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my fiancee were in dire need of a place to stay for two weeks in late May. A convention in town booked up all the regular hotels in our modest price range. We wanted a place that gave us access to the city on foot, but would give us quiet and solace in the evenings. We also wanted to enjoy cooking for ourselves and the joys of staying in.

This place was perfect for all of the above!

The home is very modern and offers more than you could ever get out of a typical hotel deluxe suite. By day, I could cross over into old town, or to do some boutique shopping in courage. After a day on my feet I would take in the unobstructed view of the Salève from the balcony. This made for some magical sunsets with a glass of wine in hand. The fantastic mattress and quiet nights provided all the rest I needed.

Laura is a great host that goes well beyond my typical experience on VRO or Air BnB (which have never been bad to begin with!). I highly recommend this rental.

Todo perfecto

  • 5 out of 5
Hemos estado durante una semana alojadas en este apartamento en el cual no ha faltado absolutamente de nada. La propiedad estaba limpia, en muy buen estado y tal como aparece en la foto. Está muy bien situada, muy tranquila, con autobús prácticamente en la puerta y un supermercado a escasos metros.
Laura Cantini ha sido una anfitriona encantadora, siempre atenta a cualquiera de nuestras necesidades, muchas gracias Laura.
Por supuesto recomendaríamos la propiedad a cualquier persona que quisiera visitar Ginebra.
Nosotras sin duda volveríamos encantadas a ella.
