Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Marie and Jürg’s "room" is actually a large suite including a large bedroom with a very firm bed, full bathroom, living room and breakfast area with refrigerator and coffee maker where [on our own schedule] we could eat the breakfast that they provided, including Jürg’s delicious homemade bread every day! The suite has an independent entrance and there is a spectacular view of the city of Steckborn from the breakfast area. Marie was very helpful, providing lots of travel guides and information that were organized in a binder for our use. Their home is close to a bus stop and a very convenient location for exploring Lake Constance and Rheinfalls. We even went to St Gallen for a day from there. We would certainly stay here again if we return to that area.

    Response from Marie&Jürg:

    Thank you Carol :-)
    I hope your reunion went well and you travelled back home safe and sound :-)
    Thanks again for staying with us :-)
    Oh and by the way, you were lucky, Jürg is not making fresh bread all the time ;-)
    Have a great end of the week :-)

  • I had my first airbnb experience with Marie & Juerg..Turned out to be very satisfying.

    I can't thank them enough to do them justice--They are super nice hosts, were never tired in providing helpful recommendation and convenience in my short stay. They were very inviting and keen to provide me with travel tips since day 1 that I contacted them. The flat itself is v nice and comfortable even in hot summer. It's been a bliss to be able to stay there even just for 2 days. I thought it might be a bit far from Lake Constance where I wanted to visit during my stay, but now I think it was a very good decision to choose to stay there. (1) the scenic train ride to get to the nice village (2) the nice walk from the train station--was a 10-15mins walk, a bit up the slope, but was fine me even though I was with a 4-year-old. Won't hurt to do some exercise, or could go by Postauto as well, for 2 stations...(3) in general, nice, happy and relaxed people in the region...practical advice and help from Marie & Juerg, sth I wouldn't remotely expect from even a nice hotel. (4) proximity to ferry pier/ train station-well, they are not next door, but if you are treating yourself a holiday, try to enjoy the nice and easy walk:> (5) good breakfast..I'm still missing their jam, yogurt, the apple 'schorle' and the fresh bread....(6) I had everything I needed in the 'room' was spacious and comfortable. I could enjoy myself, have a cup of tea, enjoy the long summer day in a comfortable area away from the bed when my girl was sleeping. (7) had private access to the room separated from the main house..checking in and out were easy and flexible.

    Thank you for opening up your nice home for travelers:)

  • Profound thanks to Marie and Jurg for offering us such a lovely stay.

    We went in driving there and used public transport to amble around in the local area. The accommodation offers more than what is mentioned on the site - like for example, personal warmth and great hospitality of the hosts !

    The 'large room' is actually a large area comprising of a 'set of independent rooms' with enclosed and open terrace, bathroom et al; and more than adequate amenities, independent entrance - not to mention the superb lake view. The coffee, along with with arrayed paraphernalia needs a worthy mention. The entire sett-up is well organised, clean and very hospitable. Location is in a neighbourly area, away from the humdrum yet so close to everything. You are there (i.e. railway station, market place, main street, etc.) in about 7-10 minutes of walk..

    During our very short stay, Marie and Jurg took great pains to explain to us the local nuances viz. transport routes, to-do's, local specialities and everything in between. E-mail communications prior to arrival was equally productive/ responsive.

    Would certainly recommend it to the prospective visitors and would like to stay here again.

    Thanks Marie and Jurg,

    AB family.

    Thank you so much for your review :-)
    we are really happy you liked your stay with us and hope to see you again at some point :-)
    It was very nice to have you here too :-)
    Have a great time now in India and we are happy to hear you are safely home :-)

  • Staying at Marie's & Jürg house in Steckborn was a very easy going and pleasurable experience. The area was very clean and had its own bathroom and indoor terrace from which you have private access to your room. I really enjoyed their great coffee and typical Swiss breakfasts, they're wonderful hosts, they have traveled so much and are very resourceful and always willing to help. The views of the lake are stunning overlooking the town and Germany on the other side of the lake. Steckborn is very historic town on a narrow part of the lake which makes it very unique. The location was perfect not more than 5 minutes walking from the train station and lake. Just a hop on the train and in 30 minutes you can visit Constance a bigger and also very historical town in just across the border. Driving along the lake gives you spectacular views of the area. I'm very glad I decided to stay here. Also just 2 minutes by car up their house there is a mirador that also provides a stunning views of Steckborn. Watching the sunset from there was quite an experience and I got to take some incredible shots.

    If I'm ever passing through this beautiful area again, I would definitely stay here again. I found the price super reasonable when you compare to any other accommodation in Switzerland, plus I doubt, anyone could match their hospitality and Coffee :). Thank you Marie & Jürg!

  • Die Woche bei Marie und Jürg war sehr schön, wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Der "large room with a great view" ist in Wirklichkeit ein kleines Appartement, völlig separat. Die Beschreibungen und die Bilder im Internet geben alles sehr gut und korrekt wieder. Wir wurden mit leckeren Sachen zum Frühstück und zur sogar zur Abreise verwöhnt. Alles in Allem: 5 Sterne und beide Daumen hoch! :-) Danke Marie, Danke Jürg! Wir kommen gerne wieder.

    Danke für die tolle Bewertung wir freuen uns auf Euch :-)

  • Tout était parfait. Un accueil chaleureux avec beaucoup de simplicité dans les relations. Un emplacement idéal, nous avons utilisé les transports publics. Une jolie chambre avec un petit coin canapé et salle de bain privé, un petit déjeuner complet. Tout était propre, joli et confortable. Et last but not least, une vue magnifique qui tient lieu d'un écran géant 3d! Merci Marie et Jürg, on ne peut que recommander votre petit coin de paradis. Alice et Guy

Marie is from the French part of Switzerland and worked many years in early childhood education and Jürg is from the German part of Switzerland and he is a technical adviser. We both travelled a year with Up With People in the 90ties (more explanations live) and speak English at home. As we travel quite some (US, Latin America, Europe) we enjoy staying at people's homes and experiencing new cultures that way.

Marie est suisse romande et a travaillé de nombreuses années dans la petite enfance et Jürg est suisse allemand et travaille comme conseiller technique. Nous avons tous les deux voyagé avec Up With People dans les années 90 (plus d’explications de vive voix) et nous parlons l’anglais à la maison. Quand nous voyageons (Etats-Unis, Amérique latine, Europe) nous logeons volontiers chez l’habitant et apprécions cette manière de découvrir de nouvelles cultures. Comme notre maison a plusieurs chambres de visite, nous partageons volontiers cette expérience avec des gens qui viennent des quatre coins de la planète. Soyez les bienvenus dans notre paradis Steckborn Lakeview ☺ Hallo :-) Wir sind ein Schweizer Ehepaar das mischen von Kulturen liebt.
