Very good hosting and convenient place to stay. Excellent choice!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Mark's place for three weeks whilst in Geneva for work at the Palais des Nations (UNOG). Mark's place is very elegant, clean and spacious, with a breath taking view of the Mont Blanc, Lake Geneva and other interesting views of Geneva city. Access to public transportation (bus/tram) is just a minute walk away. The convenience of getting to and from work made Mark's place even more of the perfect choice for me.

As far as the room is concern, there is private access to the en-suite room and laundry service was readily available a few stairs above Marc's penthouse apartment. TV, DVD/CD player, high speed wireless internet, closet space and tranquility, comes with the room. Mark respect for privacy was well appreciated and his recommendations on places to go and things to do made my getting-around rather simple.

Thank you Mark for your very warm and friendly hospitality and hope others make your place their first choice when on business or pleasure in Geneva, especially those who needs easy access to one of the many Int'l organizations nearby.

Exceptional top-floor flat with amazing view of Lake Geneva and distant mountains

  • 5 of 5

Mark's flat is a meticulously decorated and well-maintained oasis in the city. Private, quiet retreat with an incredible view of the area. Mark is a very accommodating host - with excellent communication skills. Great location makes getting around easy - close to Cornavin and public transportation. I wouldn't hesitate to return to Mark's place when I'm in Geneva.

The best views in Geneva

  • 5 of 5

When staying at Mark's, you're not staying in a rental; you're staying in his personal apartment which is sumptuously decorated in many beautiful objets d'art. His penthouse is on the 8th floor--the top floor--and it overlooks Lake Geneva with unobstructed views of the lake and Mt. Blanc in the far distance. We spent much of our time there simply sitting on his balcony and enjoying the spectacular views. The location is excellent: a few minutes walk from the lake promenade and within walking distance of many great restaurants and the LIDL supermarket for stocking up on food items. His elegant apartment is truly a one-of-kind experience.

Lovely view of the lake from this top-floor flat. Bedroom is standard size. Bed is smaller than a queen. Nice bathroom.

The common areas are shared with Mark when he is there, but we barely saw him as he was quite busy and traveling. Bill, his very cute and well behaved Belgian Spaniel, was our constant companion. Do close the door to your room when away as Bill is quite curious. He picked up some items from our bags while we were out and we found them at various spots around the apartment!

Location is prime and travel is easy.
