                                                              Excellent flat in the most convenient place for anything

                                                              I would like to thank the owner of this wonderful place. Everything was ready, clean and more than expected when we arrived. The flat itself is great with brilliant layout good for a family of 4. The views are just amazing from all windows and two balconies are useful. The kitchen was perfect too. Lift was very useful. Ski room was perfect to keep everything dry and safe. The proximity to the train station was just spot on. The flat is in a quiet area - very peaceful. One minute walk from the flat is the free ski bus and across the road is the excellent hotel with the pool/Jacuzzi you can use for an extra small fee. Restaurants and shopping are all nearby and overall you cannot dream of having the flat in the better place. If you are located closer to Matterhorn express, it is so much noisier. Once again thank you and I will not hesitate to come back for another holiday, this time in summer.

                                                              Luxuriöse Wohnung für perfektes Skiferienerlebnis

                                                              Wir haben die Wohnung von Lizzie im Januar 2016 für eine Woche Skiurlaub mit Freunden – 6 Erwachsene und 1 Kind – gemietet und waren schlicht begeistert. Die Wohnung ist ausgezeichnet gelegen, äusserst geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet mit einem eigenen Bad pro Erwachsenenzimmer, einer offenen Küche und einem top modernen TV & Musik Equipment alle Annehmlichkeiten, die man sich für einen Skiurlaub wünscht. Abends nach intensiven Skitagen ein Feuer im Schwedenofen anzuzünden, war schlicht grossartig. Lizzie, die Vermieterin ist unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit – jede Anfrage wurde prompt beantwortet und gelöst – so wurden extra Geschirr und Sitzgelegenheit für die Kleine organisiert und zweimal die Woche eine in-House Massage zu einem sehr fairen Preis. Es sind die Aufmerksamkeiten wie der selbst gebackene Zitronenkuchen, der bei Ankunft für uns bereit stand, die den Unterscheid machen. Die Wohnung ist ein Juwel und die Aussucht auf das Horu einzigartig. Wir werden ohne zu zögern wieder kommen! Thanks Lizzie, your apartment is outstanding and one of a kind – so are you!

                                                              The apartment is wonderful, warm and comfortable and in a good location. The owner couldn't have been more helpful in making our stay easy and enjoyable- everything was thought about carefully. We would stay here again!
