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!
Excellent host, food galore in the fridge and pantry. Very attentive to our needs and charming host.
This was a wonderful, comfortable place to stay. It consists of a well lighted, nicely appointed double bedroom, bath, and entrance hall upstairs, and a small but complete kitchen and comfortable sitting / dining room (with an extra single bed and the sofa coverts to a hide-a bed) downstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also an iron and ironing board if needed as well as broom and vacuum for longer stays. The surrounding gardens are part of the vistas from all windows and make a welcome of the natural surroundings into the interior.
The B&B is located on a small hill in a semi-rural area between three villages, in a mosaic of farmlands, tree-lined paths and streams, bordered by pleasant neighborhoods. It is an easy 5-10 minute walk in any of three directions to reach bus lines, restaurants, and other services in the villages. The United Nations and many international organizations are also within 10-15 minute walk. Central Geneva is about 15-20 minutes by bus.
The host and her husband extend a warm welcome and are eager and able to help with any questions or recommendations or any problems (we had none); they have just this one apartment to let, so are able to focus on the guests at hand. They provide complementary passes to access the very serviceable Geneva public transport system (buses, trams, trains) during your stay. They also provide maps and information about places to visit. Breakfasts are not provided, but a diverse range of foods and drink are provided for guests to prepare their own breakfasts and snacks. Really good fresh bread can be obtained by walking into the bakery in Grand Saconnex (5-10 min). We would recommend this B&B to future guests and will be very happy when our sojourns bring us back once again.
The apartment is located in a very nice area if Geneva, Pregny. Kathy was there to receive us and to show us the apt which is also in excellent condition including place to park. The promised breakfast was a lot more than just breakfast including chocolates, fruit in the room and wine. I would 100% recommend Kathy's place.
Kathy is a very friendly host, and she is very accessible if help is needed.
We stayed during winter, but can tell if it is summer time, the garden will be really lovely.
A bit fact: the apartment is 560m from the V/Z busline stop, and 1.3km from bus 5 route. It is bit up/down hills. Walking to Palexpo, if you have an early start of conference may not be super ideal. Carrying the luggage to hike the distance is not that easy; so best to call a cab
My 3 colleagues stayed at Kathy's place at the beginning of December.
They think she's the perfect host and thought of everything, from breakfast to travel cards. They found the apartment clean, tidy and very nice.
The location is not walking distance from UN but there are direct busses.
Kathy is very friendly and welcoming. Her home is a bit outside of geneva but a 10 minutes busride brings you to the city center. Two rooms and a kitchen, suitable for 3 persons.
I was there with two colleagues and we had a very good stay. Kathy provided fruits and food for breakfast. Additionally she provided us with bus and tram tickets.
In short: it was an excellent Airbnb experience!
