Sunny And Scenic 3 Bedroom Apt. (110 sqm) in Pfäffikon (SZ) Near Lake Zurich

Bright, sunny and quiet 3 bedroom apartment along Lake Zurich with a lake view. Beautifully appointed apartment in alpine baroque zen style. Save money in expensive Switzerland by staying in a beautiful apartment where you can prepare your own meals! Two balconies, one off the kitchen (for the afternoon sun), and one off the master bedroom with a lounge to catch the morning sun. Renovated in 2013. Sleeps max. 4 adults and two children. Double beds in the first two bedrooms, and then two single beds in the third bedroom. One bathroom with sink and bathtub and shower; second bathroom with sink and toilet.

Please note: Washer and dryer are located in the basement of the building and shared among all tenants according to a fixed 14-day schedule. Guests should NOT rely on being able to wash on-site during short stay

About Allison Quaid

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.

Allison Quaid purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Allison Quaid chose Switzerland

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Spacious accommodation near Lake Zurich

  • 3 of 5

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.

Good for families

  • 4 of 5

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.

Sonnige Wohnung an praktischer Lage

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

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!

Ideal place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The place is conveniently located very near the train station. It was unfortunate that we were not able to meet the owner/manager. We will definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

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 ( – 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 (
