I am American and my husband is German, and we have lived in the Zurich area for four years. Previous to that we lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 12 years.
We love Switzerland and its central location, therefore, we spend a lot of time traveling around Europe. We are seasoned travelers and Homeaways guests as well, therefore we believe we know exactly what kind of amenities are important as a traveler.
In our spare time we do a lot of mountain biking and hiking in the area and our favorite travel spots are Croatia and Italy. I work in the energy and environmental business and my husband works in the technology sector.

We love to be in nature but nearby to the city - and our apartment offers both qualities. There is amazing hiking and biking right out the front door, plus we belong to the fitness club which has an amazing 33 c salt iodine pool.
Location to hiking, mountain biking, highway, train to zurich, swimming, everything you could need to keep your swiss holiday within a reasonable amount. I find switzerland very expensive, and so if you can make meals at home, that will literally save you one or two hundred dollars a day. Budget $60 for lunch for two at a minimum.
The apartment was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. The location is perfect, close to a really nice shopping center, Rapperswil and only 20 minutes up a good highway (with spectacular views) to Zurich. We loved it.
Overall a good size apartment. Close to Pfaeffikon station for access to region. Nearby shopping centre and water park are walkable. View somewhat disappointing due to building work nearby and some noise from railway line and road. Wifi and good range of TV channels including many international ones.
I brought my grandmother and my toddler with me for a visit. The apartment in Pfaffikon was great for what we needed. It was clean, instructions were easy to follow the location was easy to use: we did day trips through the Lake Zurich area, as well as one drive to Interlaken & Grindelwald.
Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral gelegen. Nur kurze Gehminuten zum Einkaufszentrum und Bahnhof. Funktionale und gut ausgestattete Küche. Saubere Schlaf- und Badezimmer. Sehr grosses, gemütliches Wohn- und Esszimmer.
Viele Spaziermöglichkeiten (Wald, See). Ideal für Hunde.
Super Betreuung durch den sehr netten Besitzer (telefonisch + elektronisch).
Wir würden diese Wohnung auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Vielen herzlichen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt!
Very comfortable and spacious apartment, walking distance to grocery stores, nicely equipped kitchen. Owners took good care of us. We enjoyed walking across the lake to Rapperwil.
Had a great time in Switzerland..minor glitch initially, more than corrected immediately, owners were easy to contact, and extremely nice. The apartment is beautiful and the Alpamare water park, which is in walking distance, was an amazing bonus for our 10 year old! Would definitely recommend!
Location is ideal, close to Zurich, but also lots of fun things to do in this area. You can also walk everywhere! Walking distance to grocery stores is 8 minutes. Or swim off your jet lag and let the kids have fun on a giant water slide at the indoor swimming center – Alpamare (www.alpamare.ch) – only 7 minute walk from front door. Walk or run every morning along beautifully wetlands walkway on Zurich See all the way to Rapperswil. Or go to the famous benedictine monastery in Einsiedeln (http://www.kloster-einsiedeln.ch/).
