Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really have a great time at Kathy's home. The garden is so beautiful and we can cook by ourselves. Kathy shows us around the neighborhood and tell us everything. We live there but feel we stay at our own home. It is so nice. The neighborhood is so nice and quiet. We can't find any places in China like that. Next time, if we come to Geneva again, we will come to live here again.

  • Kathy and her husband were great hosts! They were very kind and helpful, and I had a very comfortable stay. Their apartment is in a great location few minuts walking to the bus station. the flat are located few minut driving to the international organization's. The room's in the flat is large and comfortable, the internet/wifi works perfectly. The closet has enough space for your stuff and the desk is great if you have to work/write and the most important the flat was perfectly clean!!

    our stay in geneva was perfect thank's to Kathy and I would be happy to stay again at her flat when I'll be back

    April 2014
  • Our stay at Kathy's was very pleasant, comfortable and hospitable.

    Kathy received us with a big smile and made sure we had everything in our rooms... a comfy bed, water, fruits and goodies.

    We enjoyed our stay in total privacy, just few minutes from the Geneva city center and in the peaceful heart of Geneva's lush countryside.

  • For the second time, I have spent 4 nights at Kathy's house, located in a beautiful part of Geneva and close to the UN. The apartment itself is really nice, comfy beds, really spacious and television with many international channels and dvds. Kathy is a very helpful and flexible host, she provided me with lots of food, a city map, transportation ticket and recommended places. It was my second time and definitely not the last one and I would love to have an accommodation again at Kathy's for my next time.

  • We've just had three lovely days in Geneva at Kathy's b & b and she couldn't have been more helpful - she even drove me to the optometrist to get my glasses fixed! She told us all about the local activities and suggested one town nearby because it is one of her favourites. We headed there the next day only to find "The Venetian Festival", similar to the masked happenings in Venice, in one of the most beautiful towns we've visited. Great choice Kathy, thank you. The house is in a lovely area with open grassy fields around it and even overlooks the sports fields for the soccer games (you can see it but you can't hear any of it so it's not disruptive). The weather was beautiful so everywhere was really busy with people out and about enjoying the sunshine so it was delightful to come back to the house and sit in the lush, quiet garden. You have your own entrance to the property so you can come and go as you please and it has separate dining and lounge facilities downstairs with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Very user friendly with a coffee machine and everything you could want for your breakfast. The chocolate coated chocolate cake but have been a bonus - it was delicious! Thanks again Kathy for everything.

  • Dear Airbnb Users,
    if you are looking for a perfect place to stay in Geneva then contact Kathy. She is a lovely host and welcomed us with open arms.
    Her villa is nice, clean and not located in the crowded and loud city centre. Nevertheless her villa had a good connection to reach every attraction in a short time.

    We would come back again at everytime. Especially her breakfast was really yummy!

    Greetings from Germany!

  • We had a lovely stay at Kathy's place. She puts a lot of effort into making the guests feel at home and comfortable. We really appreciated the breakfast items and snacks, hair dryer, ironing board and of course, the public transport card. Kathy is very responsive to emails and phone calls (we got lost finding her place). It was nice to experience the countryside of Geneva, which was actually quite close to the airport and the UN area. The buses are somewhat infrequent, but that is not really inconvenient if you know the schedule. Thanks Kathy!

  • A fantastic experience. It came as a surprise to find ourselves in a countryside situation just above Geneva, an idyllic location. It is 15 minutes walk to Palexpo, and 5 minutes to get to the nearest bus that takes you down into the city centre. Kathy provided a huge range of breakfast ingredients, and lots of good advice and tips. Even though you can see the airport from here, it was very peaceful by night and we weren't disturbed by planes. Comfortable, clean, all bathroom amenities. Highly recommended.

  • I stayed with Kathy for 6 days while attending a conference in the centre of Geneva, and it was great. I was looking for somewhere quiet, and despite being quite close to the airport, this location is peacful and the apartment is comfortable, cosy and private. When we arrived there was a range of food for breakfast as well as coffee, tea, milk etc, and we especially appreciated this because we arrived on a Sunday when it can be hard to find a supermarket. Kathy was very kind and thoughful and anticipated all our needs while giving us plenty of space. I was very sorry to leave!

    January 2014
  • Excellent host, food galore in the fridge and pantry. Very attentive to our needs and charming host.

I travelled a lot when I was a kid, almost as much as diplomats, (my parents are in the movie business). It was a thrilling life and I saw a lot of beautiful places... I settled in this gorgeous International city with lovely peaceful landscapes and a wonderful lake quite a few years ago now I enjoy listening to the nightingale when it sings in our garden at night and I like to watch all kind of birds. I also love gardening, roses, classical music, Hollywood comedy gems from the 50s, playing at cards, good books and like very much meeting new people. Therefore I look very much forward to meet you
