Wonderful stay in great skiing area

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here with our four young children during the 2017/2018 Christmas break and we really enjoyed our week. The children liked the atmosphere and fought over who was allowed to sleep in the 'bedroom upstairs', which feels a bit like a secluded area, shielded from parents and siblings.

The apartment is spacious and very cosy, thanks to the high ceilings with

beams and the choice of furniture. We immediately felt at home. All items were complete and new and everything worked, as if the apartment were completely new.

Helena was unbelievably responsive, helpful and flexible throughout our stay. Arrival and departure were completely hassle-free. It was also helpful that we got the codes to the keys so that our arrival time was completely flexible. We could even have arrived late at night.

The bus stop is located within 100m or so which made it very easy to take the ski bus (departing every 20 minutes or so) to Lauterbrunnen (in Lauterbrunnen one has the choice of taking a train to Wengen or a gondola + train to Mürren). On other days we just took our car and drove 7 minutes to the other gondola to Mürren. So lots of options and no hassle to get to the slopes.

The skiing area is very suitable for families. We particularly liked the Mürren area, which offered enough challenge while being a bit quieter than the Wengen/Grindelwald side. Scenery is fantastic throughout the area.

We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone and we hope to return soon, perhaps for some hiking in autumn or spring!

Amazing stay in Lauterbrunnen!!

  • 5 of 5

I apologize for getting to this review so late, but I didn't want to write it in a rush.

First of all, this stay was the highlight of our European trip. Helena was most helpful with any advise we needed leading up to, and while we were there. The directions she provided to the property were excellent. We traveled in from Munich and arrived late, which wasn't a problem. She provided us with instructions on how to enter the property on our own. We arrived to a cozy top floor apartment that was warm and inviting. She had instructions on the table that included anything we needed to know about the apartment. We also found a lovely bottle of wine that she had left for us that was much needed after a long day of travel. The next morning Helena came over to meet us and we enjoyed a wonderful long conversation over a few cups of coffee. She really is a genuinely sweet person. The second day we were there was our thanksgiving holiday, Helena recommended a restaurant in town that didn't disappoint. She was very helpful with hiking and trip advice. We were lucky enough to be able to travel to the top of the Jungfraujoch on a clear day. It was amazing. The fact is, is that the whole place is amazing and her property has absolutely gorgeous views. Waking up to these views is something our family will never forget. I'm not sure we will ever be fortunate enough to go back to this beautiful region, but if we do we will arrange another stay with Helena.

From our family to yours, thank you again for everything!! Our stay could not have been more enjoyable.

Best regards,

Josh, Christy, Aleena, and Brianna

Wonderful apartment and wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and our holiday was fantastic!

The apartment is big, very clean and well equipped.

Helena is very kind, she's very helpful for all information about the region, transport, shop, etc.

The view from the window is wonderful. The position is perfect: near the high mountain (jungfrau, Schilthorn), near nice village (Wengen, Murren, near lake (Brienz, Thun) near town (Bern)

It's perfect for all activites!

We would highly recommend staying in this apartment.

Wonderful apartment with great view

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment to base from to explore the Berner Oberland area. The apartment is very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Helena is a wonderful host. She is very responsive and has good instructions and information in the apartment to help you get the most out of your stay. The view up the valley from the apartment is beautiful. It is easy to access downtown Lauterbrunnen (2 buses an hour) or just a short 10 minute walk. I would highly recommend staying in this apartment.

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip for us - we stayed here to ski in 2016 and we wanted to come and experience the delights of the Jungfrau Region in the summer. It was wonderful to be back - the apartment is fantastic, a great location for exploring the area with easy access to Wengen, Murren and Grindelwald and endless amazing walks in the mountains. Helena and Mike have thought of everything - the apartment is spotlessly clean, very well maintained and really well equipped. It has everything you want and in addition there are the wonderful views of the mountains and the beautiful Lauterbrunnen valley. There is so much to do in the area you really need to stay here for more than one week - you will never be bored, and you can be as energetic as you like as mountain trains and cable cars are there to take you up into the mountains if you don't feel like walking all the time. We have already booked to return again next ski season.
