Beautiful Home in Grindelwald

  • 5 of 5

This is really a home and not just a rental. It's large, beautiful, and has an Amazing view! We sat on the front porch every evening watching the sunset change the mountain colors. The mountains are actually closer than they appear in some of the photos. The home is very comfortable, great beds, large living/dining area, kitchen very well equipped. We had 8 people and were very comfortable. The children loved playing with the blocks and outside in the small yard area. There are llamas just up the hill behind the house. We had cars and drove down into the "downtown" easily, parking in the lot by the Tourist information and Coop grocery. Lots of beautiful hiking from the lifts. We had the regional Jungfrau passes and put them to good use, I would recommend them. The manager was very helpful and there is a very complete guidebook in the house for hiking, dining and excursions in the area. This is a lovely home, we would absolutely rent it again!

Nice chalet raised above Grindelwald. Very quiet and peaceful with great views across to the Eiger.

The chalet is well appointed and the managers were very helpful in every way.

Loads to do in the area and we had a great time.

Great home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Home was very well maintained and matched the description. Great view from the balcony. Great customer service from manager. We were given ideas of things to do, places to hike and which mountain passes we should consider purchasing. Very helpful. Gindelwald is about a 20 minute walk from the home so will need to drive to get groceries if needed. Impossible to park in town. Close enough to walk for dinner, etc. We would recommend this to friends and relatives!

Great, good value property with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

The communal living space is excellent. Good space for small children. The property was very clean on arrival. The manager is very hospitalble and easy to deal with. Easy bus ride or drive into town. Overall great property. But the views seal the deal.

Would stay again.

Tolles Chalet in grandioser Lage

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Appartement ist sehr empfehlenswert. Die Lage ist zwar ausserhalb des Stadtkerns, jedoch zu Fuss (20Min.runter und 30 Min hoch) oder per Bus gut zu erreichen. Als Skifahrer ist man in 10 Min. gemütlich am Bodmi Lift / Bus, um dann mit der Bahn weiter zu fahren. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden (auch Fondue und Raclette Geräte), wenn man auf eine Kaffeemaschine verzichten kann. Ein Keramikfilter ist vorhanden, man kann sich seinen Kaffe klassisch aufbrühen. Wünschensert wäre im Keller eine Abstellmöglichkeit für die feuchten Skistiefel, besser eine Trocknungsanlage in der Waschküche. Insgesamt hatten wir einen schönen Aufenthalt, auch wenn ich auf dem steilen nicht gestreuten Weg zum Eingang gefallen bin und mir einen Mittelhandknochen angebrochen habe.

The perfect Chalet for the perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Family with 2 adults and 3 children. We stayed during Aug.

Waking up in the morning and seeing the Jurgenfrau in front of you makes you feel you are in vacation for real or maybe in a post card.

The location of Gridelwald is perfect for those who wish to stay in the Jurgenfrau area for some time. The chalet is outside of the center of Grindewald. You can reach the center by bus or car. Parking in the center cost money (make sure you have some coins with you). We were the whole week.

The chalet is great. Its made of wood and gives a warm feeling. The side which faces the Jurgenfrau is made of glass and provides a continuous panoramic view on the mountains while you are in the chalet. The bedrooms were convenient. Showers are clean. There is also a shower on the floor level is you are a larger family.

The living room is beautiful and is the perfect place for family reunion. Every night we were sitting there and listening to music, reading, watching the pictures from our day trip and playing together.

The kitchen is great and has all what you need to cook for the family. Cooking with the kids was fun. The dining hall is facing the amazing view of the Juregnfrau.

You can seat on the small porch which is facing the mountains and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. The artists among you can seat and draw the magnificent view.

There is a small garden where the children can play outside.

What you have to bring from home-If you like to draw/paint, don’t forget your drawing materials. Music device (there is no stereo system)- We brought our iPAD mobile speaker. This is a Nesspresso machine on the chalet. Bring you own capsules. I couldn’t get them in Grindelwald. If you wish to watch movies bring a mobile DVD.

Diarmmuid, welcomed us on the first day. He is nice, fair and service oriented. Before we arrived he sent us an information package on the chalet and the area. During our visit he asked if we need help and if we are good. He was available for questions.

Payment is done by paypal or direct money transfer. Check which way is cheaper. Paypal took 5% transaction fee.

Our kids never wanted to leave the chalet, As I said the perfect place for the perfect vacation.

Grindelwald is set in the alpine heartland of Switzerland known as the Bernese Oberland. Dominated by the world famous Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains it boasts the country's highest density of dramatic scenery. The village is the stating point for hundreds of walking trails, mountain biking trails, paragliding, rafting and much more in the summer months and for its skiing and snowboarding during the winter months when it becomes a lively winter ski resort. Set beneath the towering peak of the Eiger you couldn't be in a more beautiful setting. Its nicknamed 'glacier village' for its proximity to two large seas of ice which are well worth a hike to during the summer months. The main street is packed with little restaurants, cafes and bars , all with terraces for you to take in the views. There is train station in town making it easily accessible from any part of Switzerland.
