                                                    Great house and lovely owners

                                                    The location of this property is amazing. It's overlooking mount Titlis and it's on the hill. Very peaceful and serene place overlooking mountains on all sides. The owners are absolutely lovely. Jacquleine has been very quick to reply to all my queries even before I booked the place. After booking she also quickly drafted a letter to get the Schengen visa for part of our group. Both John and Jacqueline were at the property to greet us and showed us around. They were very quick to come over to the property if we needed any help. They were knowledgeable of the area and Switzerland in general. The property is very spacious for a big party of people. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and gadgets. It was refurbished to a very high standard. The lounge had a home theatre system which was amazing for entertaining our teenagers and kids. There were plenty of bed rooms and plenty of beds. The outside area was also very nice for a sunny day. Amazing views from all windows around. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a good time in Engelberg.

                                                    Living on top of the world....

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    If you've ever watched "Grand Designs" and wondered what it would be like to live in a house like that... well look no further. A stunning building with picture postcard views from the huge windows and balcony. Switzerland isn't cheap generally but the apartment is very reasonably priced compared to other things around. The owners were swift and easy to deal with and the people on the ground at the apartment couldn't have done more for us. The apartment was warm, cosy and homely. Cable TV with English channels was a bonus for us as was the free wi-fi. The only price you pay for such a magnificent view is the steep hill to get up there. It's a bit of a walk from town but there is a bus stop halfway down the hill taking you direct to the gondola station and ski school meeting point. There is also a lift from a nearby hotel car park and car parking spaces at the apartment itself. Parking at the ski lift is 5CHF for the day so that's not a problem. We flew to Germany for a fraction of the cost of the half term air fares and hired a car to drive down giving us transport when we were there. I would recommend it for the view alone, but it also has the advantage of being a very, very nice place to stay.

                                                    Beautiful experience for our family

                                                    We stayed here in the fall and had a lovely time with our three children. We spent some of the weekend exploring Lucerne and some of the weekend on the farm, where our kids roamed the property, played with the goats, on the trampoline, and helped in the barn. The little farm chalet was so sweet and we were very comfortable. Highly recommend!
