Other Things to Note
This apartment is a perfect base for exploring Zurich's old town, taking a boat ride along the lakeside and visiting nearby "Top of Zurich" Uetliberg mountain practically from your doorstep. Enjoy a hot drink and a sausage from the BBQ and take in the fantastic view all the way to the snow peaked Alps. Visit other sites in Switzerland within easy access by train, the main train station is only 12 min. away. For more info check (website hidden).
Please handle this apartment with care and joy as if it was your own ;-) We recycle and separate our trash - and I'll be happy to show you what to throw where!
Stephanie is simply the best host we have had when renting an apartment. The space is charming, with everything you could possibly need in a rental unit. fully equiped kitchen, fridge, freezer, stove and even a dish washer. Comfortable eating area, and my favorate, a balcony overlooking a green space outback, giving the feeling of a small neighbourhood The location is great, restaurants, shops (great bakery just around the corner) and grocery store a 5 minute walk away. Easy access to the tram takes you to the main train station in Zurich in 15 short minutes. Its idiot proof. Lots of local information left for us to use and suggestions on what to see and do were greatly appreciated.
No question, if we are priviledged to return to Zurich we will definitely be calling Stephanie.
Stephanie was a wonderful host with a very warm heart. I felt very cosy at her place. It's perfectly located to reach every hot spot of zurich within 10min either with public transportation or taxi.
Great place with a special touch, thanks a lot...
Stephanie answered fast, was very helpful and friendly. The flat us quiet and in a beautiful area of Zürich
Stephanie was a great host. Very friendly, answered questions immediately. Lived very close by so if I needed something she was able to come over right away. The apartment was very cute and homie with a great balcony.
We stayed here for over two weeks in Sept. 2013. It was a very
pleasant experience. This first-floor apartment is very peaceful and
we were happy to call it our Zurich home. It has a very practical
location too: close to a tram/bus stop with good connections to the main Zurich locations. A Coop supermarket is nearby as are numerous eateries and a pharmacy.
The bed is big and comfortable. Even though the large bedroom window opens on a side road below, it was very quiet; there is almost no traffic on that road. The WC and the bath are separate so can be used simultaneously. The kitchen is well-equipped (though it lacks a microwave -- the Swiss aren't really fond of the microwave!). We used the shared washing machine and dryer in the basement of the building and had no problems doing so.
Some longer-term visitors may find that there is a lack of storage
space in the apartment but we quickly adjusted. On our next visit
here, if we stay for several days again, we will request Stephanie to empty a few cupboards for us to use.
As other reviewers have noted, Stephanie is a wonderful host. In our interactions and conversations with her, we found her to be
responsive and a truly open-hearted person, very "sympa" as the
French would say. She even lent us her bicycle for the few days she was out of Zurich.
All-in-all: an excellent value for money, highly recommended.
I really liked the apartment. Exactly as in the pictures, clean, very good location. Stephanie was very kind in receiving us.
