  • Olive home is a perfect place to stay in Basel. it is located in the vivid area of St.Johann, a central yet unique neighborhood. The house is located on a very quiet street, on the ground floor of a house, with windows opening to gardens in the front and in the back. The apartment is quiet, spacious, spotlessly clean, cosy yet decorated in a sophisticated minimal style. The kitchen is well-equipped. Chirstina and Lars were extremely friendly and ready to answer any query or request.
    Olive home is highly recommended in all respects.

  • Olive Home is a wonderful place to stay in Basel, walking distance to the Munsterplatz, local shops and supermarket. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, spacious, and with everything one needs for a self catering stay. The host family are extremely friendly and helpful. One couldn't ask for a better place for a stay in Basel.

  • If you are looking for a home away from home, this is the place for you. The host and hostess are charming and helpful. They have thought of everything to make their apartment cozy and welcoming. They helped us personally to check on our flight home and arranged the taxi for us. We felt like we had made new friends. Plus the apartment is perfectly located as the tram is an easy walk from their apartment. Our hostess and host had maps and all kinds of information for us.
    Don't pass up this remarkable apartment. Staying at Olive home will truly enhance your experience in Switzerland.

  • We absolutely loved staying in Olive Home: It's got historic character combined with a beautifully modern kitchen and bathroom. Both Christina and Lars are architects and their educated eye is obvious in every detail. The apartment was clean, cozy and well-equipped--and Christina and Lars were generous with advice on restaurants, getting around, and day trips. The apartment matches the photos exactly; there were no surprises. It's also, as promised, extremely convenient to the tram system (which we fell in love with) and close to everything. Highly recommended!

  • Wir haben während der diesjährigen Fasnacht 3 wundervolle Tage in Christinas und Lars Olive home verbracht. Die beiden Gastgeber waren sehr zuvorkommend und haben uns den Aufenthalt zusätzlich mit leckerer selbsgemachter Marmelade und einer Obstschale versüsst.
    Wir können das Olive home nur weiterempfehlen und würden jederzeit wieder einen Aufenthalt bei Christina und Lars buchen.

  • it was the second time we stayed at Olive House. Just like the first time Christina made us feel at home from the moment we entered Olive House till we "had to" leave.

  • Wir haben im Oktober 2 Nächte in Basel verbracht und möchten uns bei Christina und Lars für ihre wunderbare Gastfreundschaft bedanken. Die Wohnung liegt in einer ruhigen Straße mit perfekter Anbindung an Busse, Bahn und Geschäfte. Die Zimmer, das Bad und die geräumige, blitzblanke Küche sind ganz frisch renoviert, sie sind äußerst geschmackvoll eingerichtet, hell und freundlich und großzügig ausgestattet. Unsere Gastgeber waren freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit, wir haben uns bei ihnen rundherum wohl gefühlt. Wir können ihr Apartment uneingeschränkt empfehlen, wir würden es jederzeit wieder mieten, wenn wir in Basel sind.
    Anne und Max Koranyi

We are design, art and architecture enthusiastics and we are property renovators. We enjoy being craftspeople ourselves, creating nice rooms and a cozy atmosphere for ourselves and for our guests. We hope to give our guests a little „home experience“ in our house, where we live with our two little kids. Now we are looking forward to meet our guests and letting them discover what we love about Basel!
