SHARING – Community!
To share means that you have chances to enjoy and use AND at the same time special DUTIES
ALLOWED, YOUR RIGHTS, WHAT YOU CAN ENJOY:
a place to sleep
a place to eat is the wooden table besides the kitchen or the table downstairs and outside, near the barbecue place
NO food in the sleeping rooms!
a place for your car, if you stay longer than one night, park your car at the railway parking
it's only 200 metres away
you can use as many rooms as I told you in the beginning
you can charge there your electronic items
NO wet towels in your sleeping rooms, you can hang them up at the balcony or ask me where to put them, balcony if it is nice weather
NO garbage in the rooms, ask me about the different places to recycle
ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT and often missunderstood:
about the shared rooms, KITCHEN, BATHROOM and LIVING ROOM.
That I DO offer access to these rooms is very very rare even in airbnb and a privilege!
It does not mean you can leave one of these rooms dirty, wet, in more mess than you got it for use at the moment you arrived.
It does also not mean you can take of my food. You can place your food in the frigidaire and freezer and trunk as far as I allowed it to you. I do need the free space in the kitchen, don't put your things there, I need it to cook and prepare food myself.
Who wants to use these two rooms, must be clearly aware first that I am NOT ready to be your cleaner, servant or anything else like that. I do demand that you clean every mess and dirt right after your meal or after you used the bathroom.
If EVER you use it, make clean and dry before you leave, even if you only leave for one hour or two.
If you do so, I allow you to use the microwave – oven, boiler 1.7 liter, 2 toasters, oven, cooking facilities, ironing machine, even the bred machine, if you like to make your bred.
The living room is generally MY room only. Exceptions: you can play or work at the wooden table, read there or whatever. You can use the massage table on request. If you are interested in a book, you may ask me.
TABOO are: my computer and printers, all trunks, bookshelves, electronic items, my phone, the couch (except if we agree to have a discussion there, or we are planing a trip), the two writing desks.
TABOO is the use of my washbasin, the RIGHT side in my bathroom.
And if ever you should be in doubt about using something, just ask me, thank you.
quiet place for living, children welcome
I do offer access with WLAN from seven thirty am to eleven thirty pm, in the night is out.
Urs has a nice place to stay for a reasonable rate a night for Switzerland prices. I would recommend to a friend. However, Urs has strict house rules that made our stay burdensome.
The village was very cosy and quiet. The neighbourhood was pretty much crowded. Urs called us already in the morning and advised the route and made us feel welcome
Urs war freundlich und entgegenkommend, haben für zwei Wochen "Männer-WG-Erfahrung" gesammelt und uns wunderbar arangiert.
Im Großen und Ganzen, Alles gut.
Einfache Unterkunft für wenig Geld.
We spent the awesome time with Urs. And the suite is good, only 200m distance from the suite.
Urs was very understanding with our late arrival. His breakfast was great and it was very good talking to him in the morning. It was unfortunate that we had to leave early, so we couldn't spend more time talking to him.
Warning!!! The worst Airbnb experience! The only place charges extra 15 Euros for a baby, for nothing, not even an extra sheet! 7 of us booked the whole apartment but given only 2 rooms and was lectured by Urs "don't assume"! Who assumed? It was written there!! We read! And the 2 rooms are so tiny, each squeezed in with beds for 3 persons, leaving you almost no space for luggage. Urs' stuff is everywhere, messy and disgusting. He cares zero about his guests. The first thing he urged us, as soon as we stepped into the apartment, was to change shoes and move our luggages to the tiny rooms. And he was even implying that we'd better leave by 8am because he has a student to come at that time for learning language. The only thing he cares is money, that's fine, Mister, if you have decent place and service to supply! But this? We paid 260CHF in total for all these craps?! I don't know how all those good comments come from! And followed those, we deeply feel cheated!! Two thumbs down!!
About the Host, Urs
I used to be a lonely living father here with my son Mario, from (phone number hidden).
Now, the children's room is empty, my son 20 and gone to the city.
Before I bought the appartment in 1994, because it is comfortable, in a nice surrounding, not near to noise of traffic and a secure place for children to play around it.The railway station is only 200 meters away.
Ich war alleinerziehender Vater von 1994 - 98 und 2004 - (website hidden) ist das Kinderzimmer bei mir leer, und ich wohne allein wo vorher drei wohnten.
Bevor ich mir die Wohnung 1994 kaufte, habe ich sie mir vor allem nach dem Gesichtspunkt zahlbar, kinderfreundliche Umgebung, Verkehrsanbindung, vor allem ÖV, (website hidden) ist sie für mich alleine natürlich zu gross, und die Spielplätze ums Haus sind meist unbenutzt, aber die Umgebung ist immer noch verkehrsfrei und geeignet für Kinder mit Bewegungsdrang.
