The Space

After a busy day sight seeing or working this is the perfect place to relax. My place is located in a beautiful little village right outside of Zurich. You will be staying in a country style house with a real international Swiss family. Your room is peaceful and quiet. With good weather, you will be swept off your feet by the view of the Swiss Alps.
The forest and green fields start right in the back yard. You might want to meet a real Swiss cow. :-)

You will stay in a double room with a king size bed and a fully equipped private bath and kitchen. Everything is brandnew for your comfort. You have your own entrance and access to a shared meeting room.

The breakfast is not included.

  • Great location out of town but close to rail. Perfect in every way. Home away from home. Thomas and Sulma are a lovely couple and very helpful. The house was spotlessly clean, comfy bed and warm as toast. We recommend Relax in Zurich.

  • My parents stayed a week at Thomas apartment to visit my sister who lives in a town nearby. They felt very welcome. A few words to describe the place: clean, spacious, a lot of privacy, quiet, good bed, beautiful surroundings and Thomas is very friendly and helpful. Defenitly recommendable.

  • Thomas was a great host and the apartment was in a perfect location for our travels. Upon arriving, Thomas offered us a piece of a delicious apple pastry. We felt so welcome. The apartment was clean with plenty of space for us. The underground parking was perfect and allowed us to come and go as we pleased. We really enjoyed our time.

  • we had really great time!
    Thomas THANK YOU :)

    혹시나 한국분들 중에 후기 보실 분들이 있나해서 한국말로 후기 남깁니다^^
    저희는 신혼여행으로 스위스에 다녀왔구요
    차를 렌트해서 다녔습니다
    숙소 위치가 취리히 외곽이라서 차없이 묵기는 어렵습니다
    저희는 이곳에 4박 5일간 묵으면서 취리히, 루체른, 그린델발트, 그림젤패스, 슈펜하우젠, 라인 폭포 등을 여행했습니다^^
    매우 만족스러웠구요!
    숙소가 매우 조용하고 집주인이 터치를 전혀 하지 않습니다
    화장실도 넓고 방도 그렇게 깨끗하고 좋았습니다
    주차장을 지하에 자리가 따로 마련되어있고
    엘리베이터도 있어서 편했습니다
    마을 입구에는 슈퍼마켓도 있어서 필요한건 살수있었구요
    어쨌든 너무 행복한 허니문이었네요^^

  • My brother and I stayed 3 nights at Thomas last weekend.
    Pros:
    - Very nice location with superb view of the mountains.
    - Very high-level apartment. Everything looks new and clean and in order.
    - Quiet place within quiet environment.

    Cons:
    - Thomas is a little bit tight as an Host. Besides the house rules that ware published on the Site there are other rules that were not intuitive for me as a guest from different culture.
    This made me feel like "what-am-I-doing-wrong" most of the time. I can understand that it is a new apartment and Thomas wants to keep it in a good shape, but I don't like to feel like that on vacations. When someone host people, he should understand that they are different people with different needs. Few examples include what can we eat and when. Where can we speak and when. How to clean after ourselves. When to open the window in the room and how much. Etc.
    - The room we got (my brother and me) was much smaller than the one we saw on site and without any chairs neither enough storage for our stuff.

  • I had a Great stay at Thomas's place. Very calm & serene place yet is very easy to get to Zurich town by bus & train.
    Thomas was very helpful and he waited for me at train station to show me how the public transport work before he went for holidays. Coming from a tropic country it was awesome for me to watch snow came & melted away on my loft window despite is spring. The scenery from the balcony was beautiful & you can hear the sound of river flowing..Great,modern & clean apartment to relax after shopping in Zurich & sightseeing at Interlaken
    Thank you Thomas!

  • We really enjoyed our stay here and Thomas was a wonderful host. He was very helpful and welcoming. His place was a little farther outside of Zurich then we expected, but that just allowed us to get a better view Switzerland's country side. His place also has a wonderful view from the balcony.

  • Thomas is a great host, very accommodating and helpful. Room and apartment are very clean and well prepared for guests. Great location, specially if you travel by car, as it's very close to Zurich and area around, but you get all the benefits of fresh Swiss air and view of the Alps. Thanks a lot, Thomas, we would go back any time.

  • Thomas is a gracious host and truly lives in a beautiful area with amazing views. It is a good 15-20 minutes out of Zurich by car and somewhat isolated, which is nice if that is what you are looking for.
    The flat is very new, roomy, clean, and comfortable. Parking is available and the breakfast is good.
    Thomas was very helpful in acting (email hidden) and helping us find our way around.
    I would definitely recommend this experience. We enjoyed it enough that we extended our stay one more night.

About
Hi, during my travels I have met so many friendly people that I also want to be a host. I love my home country of Switzerland because it has mountains, lakes and great parties. Also because it is clean and full of friendly people as well. I wouldn't move for anything. Everytime I travel I love to come home and enjoy a hot shower with water pressure! How about drinking tap water that comes from the local spring? All possible at my place. You will enjoy the view of the Alps right from the front balconies, the fresh air and the quiet surroundings. With only 20 minutes to downtown Zurich, my place is ideal for both relaxation and work. Many days I work from out of my home office. Other days I am conuslting and training with local and international companies. Well, that means that sometimes I will be around and sometimes not. I am looking forward to meeting some interesting travelers, be they traveling for pleasure or business.
