About this listing
My little guest room in my appartment is a nice place to stay for holidays: you have the perfect nature all around: lakes, mountains, river... it s amazingly beautiful. You do a good thing staying here: rent pay goes as donation for Bali Streetdogs!
My place is 200m apart from the cristel clear and beautiful Walensee (lake) and right next to amazing beautiful hiking and land "Glarnerland". Its surronded by mountains. From here you can start amazing hiking, biking, or boat trips , surf or climb - anything you wanna do in swiss mountains. You share the appartment with me (if im around) and get your own little guest room.
I have seaview, balcony and 2 very friendly small dogs, who make you feel comfi (if you like dogs :).Im happy to advice you with trips or might even be able to take you to places.
You can use my internet or anything you need. I now have WLan (Wifi).
Weesen is a small little village , right at the lake - with pretty little harbour and restaurants.
Bus connection is right at front - train also available.
Come and check it out - i try to make you feel comfi. The rent is donation for my animal welfare association (BAWA - (website hidden)).
(website hidden) - so if you want to do a good thing for poor streetdogs in Bali - come and stay :) !
Im 1 Hour from Zürich (60km) or Liechtenstein.
Guests have access to all rooms except my sleeping room :).
Interaction with Guests
Interaction: depending on my time. i have to work a lot at home - so sometimes not too much. But im communicative :). Sometimes i can take guests to nice places. Sometimes i have no time at all.
beautiful nature, lake very nearby
You can get here by train from Zürich or Chur (to Ziegelbrücke, next village). A Bus takes you from the train station right near my place (100m) - get off at "ST.Johannsheim" / the firestation. It s right off the Autobahn, easy access by car. Parking possible in front.
a bus that doesnt go very often though , and a trainstation next village (2km)
Other Things to Note
Breakfast first day included other food should be shared (will be communicated). I
m happy to buy the dinner food if somebody cooks for me :) - i hate cooking :) !
i prefer non smokers and dog lovers :) !
Unfortunatly my appartment is very "easy hearing" and I had troubles with my neighbours/ landloard. Guests need to be quiet. No noise after 10 pm :( ... I need careful considerative guests. Guests can only arrive when i am home (1st day). So arrival time needs to be communicated... Thanks.
Staying at Mel's place was as comfortable as home can be. Location was described perfectly, set in between mountains and overlooking the lake. Bonus: Coffee on the balcony in the morning. She has two lovable dogs that you'd just have to give an under-ear scratch every single time you pass by them.
Mel is very kind and accommodating. The room is a big room with a nice view of the mountains in a quaint little town. Absolutely loved Switzerland! Thank u Mel and her cute little dogs for having me!
Mel is a great host, her dogs Queenie and Brownie are friendly and nice. Her home is situated in a beautiful area overlooking Walensee and the North-Eastern Alps. In my short time with Mel, I was able to use the kitchen to make some meals (restaurants are expensive). The room was quiet and comfortable. I had a great stay and would recommend this place to my friends.
Mel's village is as beautiful as it can be. It's a photographer's dream. Within walking distance, you can practice long exposure photography on a nearby waterfalls, sunrise and sunset photography on a pebble beach and harbor. You can also go hiking on many trails up to the mountains or around the lake. Opportunities are endless and only limited by your time and physical abilities. Oh and when you're here, you must visit Liechtenstein to cross it off your list because it's about 90 min away by public transportation. Mel likes to share with guests whatever she has and that was very kind of her. I'd love to come back and see what I didn't have the chance to see last time.
Everything sat as promised. The location is good in a wonderful town between the lake and the mountains. The room is confortable.
The apartment has a gorgeous view from the balcony. Mel is surfer(!) and engaged in protecting animals and teaching handicapped children.
MEL WAS FRIENDLY NICE COOL NOT FRIENDLY( IN DE MORNING)but she know that SO I WAS HAPPY TO STAY THEIRE in summer i go back groetjes hans
I really enjoyed my stay with Mel. She was very relaxed (as were her lovely dogs) and made me feel like I was in my own home. We ate together most nights which made all the difference for me! She helped me a great deal with local knowledge and always had suggestions and ideas to get the most out of my stay.
I had a great room with plenty of space etc. The location is amazing with lovely views. Must come back in the summer!
