“Fabulous apartment with amazing views!”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We spent a wonderful 5 nights in Alphaven Apartment B and would definitely recommend this property! The apartment is light and spacious and offers fantastic views of the Swiss Alps and the town of Engelberg from both inside the property (full length windows along the whole front of the property) and the balcony (which also extends the full length of the property). The owners were not in Engelberg at the time of our visit but we were made to feel very welcome by one of their friends, who was on hand to answer questions etc and even baked us some delicious banana bread! Engelberg is a lovely Swiss town and was a great base for visiting central Switzerland. We went up Mount Titlis (which starts in Engelberg) and visited Bern (gorgeous city!), Zug and Lucerne. Had a couple of great meals out at the Alpenclub restaurant in the town which offers traditional Swiss cuisine.

“A five star alpine experience”
Reviewed 10 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This accommadation is 5 star +.......set into the mountainside of the most picturesque Swiss town of Engelberg, offering absolutely stunning 180 degree views across the valley towards mount Titlis....what a place to come back to in the evenings and sit outside on the panoramic balcony in a relaxing hot tub !
This appartment is furnished to the highest quality by the owners and nothing has been forgotten when they equipped it.
Tip for the winter....to drive there, you will need snow chains to reach the appartment.
Great area for travelling to Lucerne and Zurich

“Best vacation ever and well worth the price”
Reviewed 9 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Too often advertisements do not live up to their hype but we could not say this about our stay at Alphaven. If anything, their website while great, was not nearly as spectacular as enjoying the place in person. The views were everything we hoped for and more. We were fortunate enough to experience a full moon with an awesome night view as well as an amazing rainbow after a brief storm. I would recommend this place for anyone who enjoys the mountains.

The accommodations were better that a luxury hotel. We have a wonderful kitchen with state of the art appliances; the great room and even the bedroom had amazing views; the bed was very comfortable; the hot tub was so much fun; and the master bath had a great tub and shower. The wireless internet was great and even the laundry was good. Engelberg is a delightful quiet town with all the basics. We went in the spring and enjoyed great weather.

Well worth the money and I would book again if we ever go back to Switzerland.

“Stunning apartment - great place to stay”
Reviewed 6 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

To celebrate a significant wedding anniversary we planned well in advance, both financially and practically, and booked 4 nights here staying in Apartment A.
The apartment is stunning with fantastic views although these do come at a price, both physically and financially! Do not underestimate the walk up from the town. I consider us to be quite fit but the steps up made several pauses to "take in the views" a must. Taxis are expensive costing about £10 for the short trip up the hill.
We did trips up both mountains by cable car and chair lift and enjoyed these tremendously. The small town has two good supermarkets and a number of restaurants and bars with a good train service from Lucerne/Zurich.
We enjoyed meals in most nights just enjoying the views, the superbly located fireplace, and not having to walk up the hill!

“Breathtaking Experience and highest quality standards assured”
Reviewed 17 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

My wife and I stayed at Alphaven Apartment A. The quality of the accomodation and the breathtaking views are truly stunning. This is a luxurious experience and a very special treat. Whether sitting on the balcony surrounding the entire apartment having breakfast, sunbathing on the terrace, relaxing in the hot tub or perhaps a glass of wine around a log fire, it becomes difficult to drag yourself away from the apartment to enjoy the Alps!
A genuine chill out venue, we left relaxed and invigorated. Congratulations to the owners and designers.We had a car which we would recommend

“What a beautiful place!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed for the second time in the Alphaven Apartment A! The apartment has a very high standards, modern and it is very comfortable with a wonderful view to the mountains.
There are windows and balcony around 3 sides, the views are amazing also in the evening when the sun goes down.
Additional features include an open wood burning fireplace, Cable and UK Satellite TV, Hi-Fi, DVD & a computer with internet access (wireless connection for your laptop too!). There is a big terrasse on the side with a whirlpool.
Our children 14 and 16 years old had on the upper floor a separate bedroom with an own bathroom. We did feel like beeing at home. That^s a good feeling!
Thank you to John and Ursula for give us the chance to stay in this great apartment.

My partner and I are regulars at Alphaven - Apartment A! It feels as though you are on top of the world staying there, leaving all the stress of life far far behind. It feels like a real home a way from home, especially when the log fire is lit and it's snowing outside!

We have very high standards when travelling and Alphaven meets each and every one of them, from it's modern and open plan interior right through to it's perfect mountain top location with breath taking views (both day and night).

We fell in love with this apartment the minute we arrived and I know anyone else who decides to use it will feel the same. There is no where else in the world like it - FACT!!
