Stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Very helpful hosts and the well-equipped apartment has stunning views. The only downside is the lack of a separate bedroom but overall we had a very enjoyable stay.

Very clean, great views - the bed was SUPER comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this place to anyone interested. It was very clean as noted above and spacious. It had a nice little kitchen and a fair sized bathroom. The price was more than reasonable. Although this is not directly in Lucerne, it's very easy to get there by bus. The hostess was also very friendly and helpful. She was willing to pick us up from the train station and take us back. Additionally, she loaned us a high-tech ironing board. We'll go back if we are going to be in the area again.

Awesome house!!

  • 5 of 5

I was impressed to see and live in this beautiful studio apt. Surrounding view is amazing. I was more impressed with the amenities provided by the owner. She had taken care of every small bit that a visitor might require during the stay like traveler charger, hiking sticks, umbrella etc. They have amazing books and game collections. My daughter loved all the games. we really really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. the only downside is about 20 minutes walk from bus station.

I definitely recommend this apt for lovely stay overlooking Luzerne Lake. Thanks.

Mountain view suite

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Lucerne, in this flat and enjoyed Beatrice’s hospitality. She provided helpful tips regarding local restaurants, and the flat had many brochures on attractions in the Lucerne area. She picked us up at the Horw train station and dropped us off at the end of our stay, which we very much appreciated, as the flat is at the top of a long, fairly steep, switchbacking street….which also means there was a lovely mountain view. The apartment is spacious and well equipped, with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen had everything we needed for meal preparation.

The bus stop is a 10 minute walk down the hill, and one bus took us right into the centre of Lucerne within 15 minutes; it runs about every 10 minutes, into the evening, which was great. From the downtown drop off, the train station and the boat docks are steps away, creating seamless transfers.

The Swiss Museum of Transportation was worth the visit, because of its innovative ways to teach all ages about modes of transportation, with lots of hands on experiences. Families with children should not miss this!

We had a Swiss Rail Pass, which covered the costs of trains, buses, boat cruises, some museums and gondolas. For certain gondolas and special tour trains, we received a discount. The boat system for exploring Lake Lucerne and points around it is extensive. One day we took the boat, and got dropped off to catch the train up to Rigi Holm(Mt. Rigi). We were able to see the vistas at the mountain top, then walk down the trails, stop for a coffee at a mountain side hotel, and continue further down to another village, and catch the gondola back down to catch the boat back to Lucerne. Quite memorable! Another day we took the full boat tour around the lake, with one stop at a town along the way for lunch. We enjoyed seeing the many towns and villages as well as the fiord-like surroundings and mountain scenery.

We are glad we had the opportunity to spend a week in the Lucerne area….so much natural beauty and history to enjoy, and would stay in Beatrice’s flat again if we returned. We rate this property excellent!

We spent 3 days here as a family of four and found the flat to be perfect for what we needed. A single room with two large beds (one a pull-out, but very comfortable), an efficiency kitchen and adequately-sized bathroom. Extremely clean and tidy. The views were spectacular as the flat is just off the lake and looking out over the mountains. There is some shopping and a grocery nearby, so we made dinner in the flat on two evenings. The drive to the Lucerne city center was about 10 minutes and an easy drive. We also drove to Zurich for the day and it was less than an hour. There are few restaurant options near the flat as it is in a nice residential area, so would recommend having a car. There is covered parking available. Beatrice, the owner, was very gracious and super helpful. She was great with communication, and helped us with some traffic alerts due to weather the day of our departure. Overall would definitely stay again and would highly recommend!
