The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. About a 5-10 min. walk the center of the village, but welcome after a hearty meal. Taxi from train station w.luggage was 20 CHF. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider renting the apartment again upon a return visit to Zermatt.

Two bedrooms well-separated, so guests do not interfere at night. Stove, oven and dishwasher in the kitchen. Lots of stuff you might need, like spices, sugar, coffee, etc were left in the kitchen, so you don't need to worry at least initially. Washing machine in the bathroom. Magnificent view from the windows. Very close to the main gondola. You can walk there in regular boots, and leave then either in lockers, or just put on the shelf. The host, Ann, is amazing. Her advises helped us a lot with logistics, etc. Highly recommended.
