About this listing
Our attractive 2-bedroom apartment (non-smoking) is ideally situated in Zermatt’s quiet Steinmatte neighborhood, just 5 min. from the Kleinmatterhorn-Express cableways.
It is ideal for 4 persons, but also sleeps 6.
Since 2014 with new sofas!
Kitchen table with open kitchen in the back. In the very back (left from wooden wardrobe) is the entrance door (not visible).
Newly renovated in summer 2012:
Lustrous white kitchen interior with beautiful granite countertops and easy-to-clean flooring. Everything is at your fingertips, letting you thoroughly enjoy a gorgeous and memorable skiing or hiking vacation in one of the world’s most unique vacation paradises.
Facilities and appliances:
Dishwasher, flat screen TV, cable TV, DVD player, radio, WLAN, bed linens and towels, hairdryer, toaster, fondue set, coffee machine (44 mm ESE pods and filter system), egg boiler, mixer, heated and lock-equipped ski storage, spacious balcony, one master bathroom and a separate WC.
Built in 1986, this well appointed apartment has an elevator and radiant heating. My husband and I acquired the property in 2006, and now enjoy it as a holiday retreat since moving to the Zurich area. Yet we are also happy to rent it to those who enjoy the vacation attractions in Zermatt.
Families highly appreciate this apartment since it is a short distance to the ski facilities, town center, and grocery store.
One bedroom has a queen-size bed and a large wardrobe. The other bedroom has two single beds, a smaller wardrobe, plus a loftbed (with outer guard rail).
The living room offerst two modern sofas (grey), and the dining room table can easily be extended.
There is a bus stop nearby, but Zermatt is so small that everything can be easily reached on foot. If you have bulky or heavy items to carry, there are always plenty of electro-taxis on hand.
Enjoy a uniquely international restaurant selection nearby – Swiss, French, Italian as well as Thai and Japanese – not to forget the ever-popular Papperla-Pub and the famous Elsie Bar.
Please check out the official Zermatt Tourist website for further information and maps.
Rental rates include heating, water, WLAN, bed linens and towels.
These rates exclude tourist tax (CHF 2.50 per person/night; CHF 1.25 for children).
Guests get two keys at their arrival. Please note that any lost key costs CHF 100, so please make sure you but them back where you found them.
Very attractive rental rates during mid and low seasons.
Interaction with Guests
I do not live in Zermatt but am always addressable via e-mail or SMS. And I always give the most possible support for any matter.
The Castania B apartment is within easy walking distance of key skiing facilities, the church on Zermatt’s famous Bahnhofstrasse, and numerous trekking paths for summer visitors.
Other Things to Note
Late check-out on prior agreement (only possible, if the apartment is not rented the same day)
The apartment is on the first floor, next to the elevator (Balcon Tognini).
Please put skis, boards and ski boots into locked ski room. No skis/ski boots allowed in stairway nor apartment.
Nothing should be thrown into the toilets or drains which could possibly cause an obstruction.
Please only use the orange garbage bags, they can be bought as single units in the grocery stores. Don't put garbage in any other bag than in the official orange garbage bags and do not dump them in the house. There are plenty of containers around the house (glass will be recycled). The fines for illegal garbage dumping are quite high.
After showering, the bath room needs to be aerated briefly and strongly.
Kitchen ware must be clean and stored.
In case you re-arrange any furniture, please put it back before you leave (the cleaning lady cannot move the heavy stuff).
The room temperature may be adjusted as follows: Open the metal-doored wall slot (between toilet and kitchen) with a coin by a quarter turn. Adjust the hot water valves of the soil heating for each room (turn to the left means more hot water). Repeat this process at the earliest after 24 hours if the desired temperature is not reached yet.
Thank you very much!!
Great apartment. Exactly as described. Very thing was well setup and communications were great. Many thanks
Julia is a super-organised host, which made check in and check out a breeze. The apartment is generously sized and felt homely and comfortable, even more so than the pictures would lead you to believe. It was also spotlessly clean and has a great shower with fabulous water pressure, important after a day exploring the alps! The location is an easy 10 minute walk from the centre of town, across the river, where you get a great clear view of the Matterhorn, so that was fun too :) Thankyou Julia, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your apartment to friends!
We were glad to have arrived and checked into Julia's apartment which is clean and tidy. Although the apartment is some distance from the train station, its location is peaceful and quiet. Eateries and amenities were within short walks. Lovely sights along the various routes leading to the apartment. Julia is quick in her response and very helpful in providing information. We enjoyed our 4 nights' stay there and had a great time in Zermatt. Thanks to Julia for recommending Grampi's Restaurant which serves great food.
Appartement agréable , bien situé, néanmoins sombre et encaissé au milieu des immeubles voisins (premier étage); par ailleurs il faut savoir qu'il ne faut pas aller à Zermatt en mai et en octobre car ce sont les 2 périodes où tous les travaux de rénovation et d'urbanisme sont autorisés ( les camions ont le doit de circuler ) et la ville est très bruyante en particulier si les travaux sont situés à proximité ce qui fut notre cas .
Perfect first experience on Airbnb, thank you Julia. Very quick to answer questions, in contact prior to arrival and to check all was ok while there.
Apartment was just as described and in a great location, easy walk to the lifts and very short walk to the shops and restaurants.
A lovely place for a family to experience Zermatt.
would definitely recommend to others wanting to visit the area.
The apartment as accurate and the host left everything very well explained.
